Redness Remedy Rules!
I didn't have high expectations for this product, but I ordered it because I have rosacea and have been using a lot of summer bisque to cover it up under my foundation. This product immediately evened out my skin tone and I was able to just wear a little Bare Escentuals medium beige foundation over it for a perfectly natural look. The silky brush is a pleasure to use and very easy to clean since it has synthetic bristles. I am a huge fan of Bare Minerals products because my skin is so sensitive. This product helps me have confidence that I won't look flushed and red when I'm at work. If I could only apply one product before leaving the house, this would be it. I am ordering an extra jar so I can be sure I won't ever run out! Thank you, thank you!
This product was made for me!
After years of being plagued with the redness of Rosacea for which Nothing ever worked, I 'stumbled' on BE's Redness Remedy. It is amazing! Now my face looks normal and healthy and even-toned for the first time in my life. It is wonderful!
After cleansing and moisturizing, I first apply Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer, followed by the Redness Remedy. I use the Fairly Light Foundation and end with a couple of 'swishes' of Clear Radiance. Sounds like a lot, but the products' applications are fast and easy.
Important: It takes a bit of practice to apply the right amount of Redness Remedy, and it is easy to unnecessarily use too much. I've found that if I use the correct amount of BE products, whether alone or in combination, 'heaviness' is not a problem. If my BE application is done correctly, it Never feels like I'm even wearing makeup.
Better than some - Not amazing
Okay - so I have REALLY red cheeks, like to the point where people always think I'm burning up or ... others. The makeup person at the boutique told me that it really works because of a, b, and c. So I bought it. I used it just like it said to - and nothing has happened. When I wear it under my makeup, I feel like I'm wearing TONS of foundation - which as most of you know with Bare Escentuals, that is not the case. There are also some days that I just don't want to wear makeup, and this makes me look super yellow.
I do have to say - it sometimes works - but I feel like I have to layer and layer it. It is better than other companies *cough* Clinque *cough* - but I think for the price - it really isn't worth it.
Torn about this item
I bought this item when it first came out...I'm torn about it. First I want to review this product as a concealer which is how a lot of people are using it. For me, it's too yellow. It seems odd to me to use a yellow product to cover redness. Green covers and neutralizes redness. So as a concealer, I rate this product very low-1-2 hearts. Now as an actual redness remedy/therapy, I rate the item a bit higher. I have used it for a few months and it seems to help reduce the redness a bit. I use it at night before bed on the redness around my nose and cheeks. It seems to help a little, but not a lot. I also have been using this item on breakouts and it seems to help make the breakout go away quicker. I think it dries out any congestion and helps it go away faster. I think this item works better on breakouts than the blemish therapy, which did not help my skin at all. If you're looking for a concealer, look elsewhere (there are green primers out there that look well); as a therapy for redness or breakouts, give it a shot.
I was so excited to purchase a product to reduce the redness around my eyes, in my T-Zone and on my acne scars. I am usually pretty tight with my money, but for redness reduction in my face, I'll spend. So I got this, brought it home and used it every day. Two months of daily morning and night treatment later, I'm still red. Red red red. Maybe it just didn't work for me, but I would not recommend this to a friend. :(
HUGE redness issue SOLVED!
My entire life I have had issues with my face turning red for NO reason - everyone always thought I was embarrassed or upset, or drinking, etc...but none were the case. I was told about this makeup by a friend who SWEARS buy it, I had always used the drug store brands like cover girl and the like in the past. I was getting married in a month so thought it was a good time to shop for good makeup for my big day. I went in to the Bare Escentuals store and the sales rep gave me a makeover and showed me different products and allowed me to try them also. I will never buy anything BUT BareMinerals makeup products. I wore the Redness Remedy on my big day and my face didn't look red in ANY of the photos! Love this product, works like a charm!
1st I am not sure why they have a redness remedy product that is yellow based. Green neutralizes red and yellow neutralizes purple. This product doesn't work and it makes my face fill really oily. I would not recommend it to any one.
Great product for rosacea
All the makeup i tried, my red skin bleed through. I had almost given up. I can't say enough nice things about this product. It really works the first day. I went to a local store. The assistance put the product on me and WOW. Truly amazing. If you suffer with a really, really red face. Try this product. I'm senstive and haven't had a problem.
With time works great!
I have mild rosacea in my cheeks and some break outs. I started using this on my cheeks every morning and I have noticed the redness is going away. It also helps make any breakouts less noticeable. Sometimes it seems that buffing on my foundation takes some of the Redness Remedy off, so if I have extreme redness, I will put some on top of my foundation. It even helps with dark circles under my eyes! I love this product and will continue to buy it!
Yeah, no more red
I got this product a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't wait to receive it when I heard about it on QVC. It did not disappoint. I use it every morning and again before bed. My red cheeks and nose have lightened tremendously. I am using 1/2 as much foundation as I did before receiving this. It feels cool when you apply it and it has lasting results. I took it with me when I got my eyebrows waxed the last time. It cooled my skin and covered the redness. I didn't even get the small bumps I normally get. I don't ever want to live without it again.
