I had such high expectations
Based on the reviews, I had such high expectations for this product. I have suffered with mild/medium rosacea for the last 30 years. i was so disappointed after using the product. Not only did I get no coverage for the redness, I actually started to break out wherever i had applied the product. I do not have sensitive skin and was very surprised when this occurred. I hope the product works better for other people.
My daughter has a neurological condition that causes her to flush frequently. She swears by this product. We would just like it to be available without the brush so subsequent purchases could be cheaper.
Not what I was hoping for...
I was looking for something to even my face out. The sales girl told me what a great product this was and would help etc etc. I gladly bought it. I haven't been disappointed with their other products I have tried before.
Ive been using it as directed but It hasnt treated anything. I still have the same problem with red cheeks and nose. If i use it as a concealer it doesnt work too well. If I use it as a treatment it hasnt helped my situation.
If I wake up with a little redness and use it as a concealer it works a bit but if I have a little darker redness it doesnt do the trick.
Almost, but Not Quite
This product does help cover up my rosacea, but it does not help it to heal. I can use my foundation and small brush and achieve the same 'covered' look.
I Was Surprised!
I bought this and didn't open it for a while as I was busy over the winter holidays. I have had rosacea for approximately 30 years and have used everything - currently using what I had found to be the best. Even so, I have several red patches of capillaries which seemed to be worsening on my cheeks and a broken out patch on my chin. When I finally opened Redness Remedy and started using it a few weeks ago, some clear spaces appeared in the patches on my cheeks, and the breakout on my chin is getting smaller. I was *very* surprised to see this much difference in these serious problem areas, and wonder if there will be more? (I started using it all over my face!) I don't get total coverage from the powder because the areas are so dark and my skin is so light, but foundation takes care of them. There is really something new and different here, and I am very grateful for the results!
Try before you buy ...
First ever review, written for warning's sake...
When i first saw this product on the site months ago, and saw how many AMAZING reviews it had, I was instantly sold. I have had issues with bright red cheeks since i was about 16...people making jokes about me being out in the sun too long or blushing, leaving me to explain that i have rosacea only to have them smirk or chuckle like Im lying. When I saw that people reviewing this miracle product had the exact same issues i did i knew I HAD to buy this. Needless to say I was soooo excited from the second i ordered this product until the second i tried it on. That's when it all went downhill.
It did absolutely nothing for my skin. No coverage, no relief. In fact, and i hate to say this but i think its important to note, it actually made my skin worse! I started breaking out and my skin was actually redder everywhere i had applied this. I tried for 2 weeks thinking that my skin just needed time to get used to the new product. I just kept breaking out and becoming more red. I finally gave up.
I recently gave what was left to a friend with similar skin issues, and she had the same "nothing" results as i did. (luckily she didnt have any adverse reactions other than disappointment)
I highly recommmend to anyone who is interested in this product that they should really find a way to try it and see how there skin reacts over about a weeks time before they shell out hard $$. Im very glad that it works so great for so many people. I just dont want anyone else like me to be disappointed AND out $27.
Great Product - Great Brush!
I was a little nervous to try this product after reading some of the other reviews, but I didn't experience any of the issues other reviewers mentioned. I was very nervous and on first application, tried to use as little product as possible since some people said it was turning their skin so yellow. For me, with the brush included and having very fair skin, this product is a miracle. After working with the product, I apply much like the bare minerals foundation - swirl, tap, buff - and it does a great job off-setting the redness across my nose and cheeks. I find myself using less foundation because I don't have to cover the red, so it creates a more natural look overall. The redness remedy brush is amazing and worth the price of the product by itself! I definitely credit the brush with the smooth and even application. I would be willing to leave the house with just this product and no foundation over it, even, as I think the effect is still very natural... except that my vanity would probably prevent it. But no issues with looking too "yellow" or with the product not blending right into my face. I've only been using it for a week or two, so I haven't noticed any major long-term effects from use, but I am pleased with the temporary effect.
Love this stuff
After 1 week of daily usage the redness on my chin and cheeks has greatly calmed down. I will be a life time fan of this product!!
If you've severe redness, try again!
I had high hopes for this product to do what it said it would. I have rosacea. My skin is always very red and tender. I've used BE for a long time now and usually love their products. I used this exactly as I was told by the BE consultant and was very disappointed! It did NOTHING to conceal or help any redness whatsoever. Now it just sits on my counter. What a waste of money.I realize people have different skin so maybe it'd work for another, but I have sensitive, fair skin and it did nothing! What a bummer!!!
this is the perfect
I got this hoping it would work, though not actually expecting it. I've bought so many items in the past that didn't do what they claimed. This works! Not only do you not see the redness after I use it, but as I've heard Leslie say.. it heals it. The area across my nose and onto my cheeks hardly has any redness anymore.
On to my puffiness under my eyes.. firming eye treatment will be my next purchase.
Thank you Leslie!!!
