    Comments about Clinique Redness Solutions Soothing Cleanser:

    I tried this cleanser because my skin started changing in my 40s, becoming more dry and irritated and I was desperate. I don't have rosacea but my cheeks get rough and itchy in the winter. This cleanser works great and helped my skin. I ran out for awhile so I was using cetaphil and my skin started getting red and irritated again so I went and bought this again immediately and I'm not switching!

            Comments about Clinique Redness Solutions Soothing Cleanser:

            Since discovering I have rosacea 25 years ago, I have searched high and low for a face cleanser that would effectively clean my face and leave it soft and clean--not dry, tight, and irritated or (on the other end of the spectrum) greasy with blemishes and angry red skin. I tried every product I could get my hands on and nothing worked...till my latest trip to Ulta resulted in a purchase of Clinique Redness Solutions Soothing Cleanser. As soon as I got home, I tried it out...put a dab on my Clarisonic...and for the first time in 25 years, my skin felt soft and smooth...normal...like, well, skin should. And the redness? Greatly diminished. I put my daytime moisturizer on and thought nothing more about it until that night, when I again washed my face and (this time) used my nighttime moisturizer. When I woke up the next day, I was in disbelief at how good my skin felt; my daughter even commented on the fact that my skin wasn't red and irritated.
            Fast forward one week, and I am in love with this cleanser. I have had no rosacea related blemishes, and my skin feels wonderful. My moisturizer used to (at worst) burn (at the least, tingle) when I would apply it, but now, I have no problems at all. For the first time in 25 years, my skin is soft, smooth, and clear, and the only time it is red is just after I wash my face; within minutes, it has subsided.
            Thank you, Clinique, for such an amazing product, and thank you, Ulta, for carrying it!

            Once I got past the feeling that the oils weren't removed from my face I realized it was moisturizing my face. My face is still red but the texture is 100% better, less red & calm.

            Good cleanser

            By Andy

            from Washington

            Comments about Clinique Redness Solutions Soothing Cleanser:

            I was looking for a new cleanser for my face and I was at Ulta looking around when I came across this one. I read the reviews and although most of them say that it's not good at removing makeup it works great at removing my eye makeup. What I do is rub it on my eyes without any water, just dry and it works just fine to take off eyeliner, eyeshadow and mascara. I haven't tried it with waterproof mascara so I wouldn't know how that works. But I recommend to try it dry without wetting your face or hands and it really does work at removing everything. It's not like other cleansers that leave your face feeling dry or that squeaky clean feeling. It leaves your face feeling like it has a film on it but it stills cleans it. I do see less red on my face and my skin is acne prone with hyperpigmentation and I was looking for a gentle soothing cleanser. I would purchase again.

                Comments about Clinique Redness Solutions Soothing Cleanser:

                I went to Ulta and the lady in the store recommended this to me. After 1 use my skin was very flaky everywhere. I didn't realize it was the product doing this until a week later my skin was completely dry and flakey. I didn't notice a difference with redness but that was probably because my whole face was covered in dry flakes. I don't even have dry skin in general. I wanted to love this but sadly I do not.

                  I keep 2 tubes of this going at all times, one in the shower for AM, one on the sink for PM. If I use it twice daily, it is more effective on improving my rosecea than an Rx!

                    • Q:

                      I'm confused. In the details section it says it melts away makeup, which implies it takes off aka "melts" your makeup, but in the how to use section it says to massage over a makeup free face. So which is it?

                    • Q:

                      I don't have much acne at the moment but I have started working out! Throughout any workouts I always turn red and get sweaty. I'm scared that the sweat will prevent breakouts! I know that this product is good to stop the redness but do you recommend any other cleansers/serums for sensitive skin types from your brand (Clinique) to use after sweaty workouts/or to prevent future breakouts?

                        Hi! The entire redness solutions 3 step system is a wonderful way to minimize redness. The system offers calming and soothing benefits both short and long term with continued use. The cleanser specifically is a great way to cleanse the skin without additional ingredients that can cause flare ups. The moisturizer and daily protective base minimizes the look of redness on contact as well as over time. Clinique also offers a redness solutions foundation that is a nice partner to the system. Thank you for your interest in Clinique and have a great week!
