I have been using this product all summer and it definitely makes a difference around my nose and mouth where I tend to get redness, especially when I get a hot flash! I apply it after washing my face and moisturizing. I use the small end to apply directly to affected areas and then the larger side to smooth in and make sure the yellow is not showing through. Then I apply Bare Mineral foundation. Love it!
This Product Works
I am so pleased with the results of Redness Remedy. It really does tone down the red areas on my face. I find I get better coverage when using the smaller end of the brush. I can even wear it without foundation. I don't ever want to run out of this product. Thank you Bare Minerals for making a product that makes me feel confident about the way I look.
Redness Remedy actually worsened the condition.
Unfortunately, this Redness Remedy product did not work for me, and I gave it fair shot, too, but at the end of the day, it was a big hit and a miss. It made my face look sickly, jaundiced and a bit ashen all at the same time, even after proper application. It made for one terribly long day at work recently, with people expressing their concerns for my health. Having said all of this and acknowledging the other reviews, it has been and probably will continue to be helpful for many. If you are tempted to try it, please do. Do not let my opinion and personal experience deter you, as with anything, it will work for some and not for others. I am glad I tried it though ... because now I know.
The BEST Product Yet
I've had redness around my nose and chin forever. Tried everything then I found Redness Remedy! This is so lightweight, don't need much, and it really covers the red. After about a week of use I noticed the redness is fading. Purchased some for my sister who has it worse than I do and now she is hooked too. I've been using nothing but Bare Minerals for the past 3 months and my husband told me last night that my skin looks so pretty and younger.
New User, Sold for Life
I may be jumping the gun a bit here, because I've only been using this product for little over a week, but that's just evidence of how quickly it works! I have struggled with rosacea my entire life, and have never been able to find a product that lessens redness while I'm actually out and about doing things. Plenty of products work at night, and when I wake up in the morning, but the minute I walk outside BAM, red again. Not this. Redness Remedy works all day, and continuously helps my skin to improve.
I have never been able to go out in public without wearing some form of foundation, but this week I almost walked out of the house without it, because when I looked in the mirror I thought I was wearing some! Even after exfoliating my face in a hot shower, my skin is not nearly as red as it used to be. I really cannot say enough good things about this product, I really hope it continues until I can feel secure enough just to put on sunscreen and go to the pool.
During the day, I apply Redness Remedy after cleansing my skin. I let it sit for a bit, then put on primer. After primer, I retouch around my nose (where the worst redness is), and a little on my cheeks and chin if I think I need it. Then I put on foundation. At night, almost the same thing. I cleanse my skin, I put on Redness Remedy. Now because I don't have to look too particularly nice, I put on a little extra.
The only con I have about this product is how yellow it is. The more you apply, the yellower it gets. Like I mentioned earlier, it's fine at night because no one is going to look at me and say "are you sick? your skin looks off..." but during the day I can only apply so much before I start looking sallow. This might also be due to the fact that I have porcelain skin (beneath all the rosacea and freckles), and not be a big deal for people with darker skin tones. Either way I really encourage people to try out this product!
If you have rosacea you need to try
I was recently diagnosed with severe rosacea at 35. My face was a complete mess. Not only was it red but I also had pustules/cystic issues. I started a prescription cream that was helping somewhat, but thought I would give this product a try as well. I never write reviews but am hoping to help out others with rosacea since it is such an awful chronic disorder.
Literally after using this product for only 1 day I noticed a difference in my skin texture and redness. The bumps started to dissipate and I was able to use less foundation (I was caking it on before). I am very pale (wear fairly light in ready and fair in the loose powder) and I don't think that this makes me look yellow like others mentioned in reviews.
I am so thankful for bare minerals since it is the only line my skin will tolerate. Thank you so much for making this redness solution product. Try it-you won't be disappointed.
# 1 Essential Bare Minerals Product
I absolutely love my Redness Remedy! I have sensitive skin and have always suffered from a red complexion. I started using this and couldn't believe the results. Its so effective and I only use it once a day! The feeling of being able to wake up, look in the mirror and see no redness gives me so much confidence- I stopped wearing foundation! It makes me feel naturally beautiful, just the way I should feel. Now I can go out with confidence and I don't have to spend so much time applying makeup anymore! This product is life-changing for me. I have never been dissatisfied with any of their products. Thank you Bare Minerals!
I have bright rosy red cheeks; they're not even pink. I have redness throughout the rest of my face at times, but my cheeks are always red. This product works perfectly as a concealer. I use far less foundation, and have a better finish with less effort. I also use this at night after moisturizing. I notice that it helps reduce my redness quickly so I feel like it does more than just correct the appearance of my skin. I have only used this for a few weeks now so I'm not sure how long term the effects will be.
my redness relief
I am enjoying this product as a way to pamper myself, the application brush is to die for, as well as looking to reduce the redness in my skin. I am seeing moderate results but to be fair I have only been applying it less than two weeks. I will check back to update.
so far not what I was promised!
When I bought this product I was only going in to buy the neutralizing primer when the clerk recommended this product. He said it would cover my redness during the day and after 4 weeks I should permanently see my redness disappearing. It has only been 3 week but so far my redness has NOT PERMANENTLY disappeared or improved some how. It does work great to cover during the day, but I was looking for something that would fix the problem not just cover it.
