    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!

    Comments about Clinique Redness Solutions Soothing Cleanser:

    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.

    Completely dried out my skin

        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!

              Comments about Clinique Redness Solutions Soothing Cleanser:

              I really did not like this product when I first bought it. I felt like it did nothing for my redness or acne. So, I shoved it to the back of my cabinet and tried numerous other face cleansers in the meantime. I decided to go ahead and try this one more time since the reviews are so great, and I'm honestly glad I did. I realized I probably didn't like it at first because I was using it wrong! I was applying it to a damp face like most other cleansers, but the instructions actually say to apply it to a DRY face and then rinse off. This made a world of difference in how it treated my skin! After one week of use, almost all the little bumps on my face are clearing up and there's very little redness compared to what I had before. I follow up with Clinique's Moisture Surge moisturizer. I cannot say enough good things about this product!
              Tldr; read the directions before using it and you'll be a happy camper :)

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.
