Must-have product when needed it works!
This product is perfect when you have that one stubborn zit that you just cannot cover up with your basic makeup. The yellow powder when blended with redness, tones/mellows it down with the smallest amount -- Less is more! -- without having to pile on your foundation.
I use this product whenever i have random acne or the pigmentation of my skin seems or looks uneven - its not only a coverup but a corrector ( in terms of color)
Did not work for me
I have very fair, sensitive skin and am prone to occasional redness. I've been using this product for over a month and have not noticed any difference. I use it religiously, twice a day. I've tried using a little and using a lot, but so far have not seen any results. This is the only time that I have disappointed by a Bare Escentuals product.
Did nothing for me
I was excited to start using the Redness Remedy. I have broken capillaries on my chin and lower cheeks and am really self conscious of them. Using the concealer brush with my foundation along with the neutralizing primer works well, but when I read this will not just cover but help reduce the problem, I wanted to try it. After 3 weeks, I could tell no difference, and the coverage was no better than using what I already buy. This was just an extra expense. Plus after using for several days, my face broke out, and that is something that I never had a problem with.
Immediately Neutralized My Rosacea
I've been battling rosacea for nearly 30 years. I've tried everything on the market both over the counter and doctor prescribed - even spent ridiculous amounts of money on laser treatments. And though I've learned that rosacea is more about avoiding food triggers and managing stress than it is topical treatments, medicines and lasers, you still have to take care of your skin. I've got a pretty good skin care routine and I'm diligent about avoiding triggers at all costs. Still, regardless of what I do, the redness, the dry skin, the breakouts are always present to some degree. William, at my local store, recommended I try this product. I was reluctant but bought it. His instructions were to moisturize and then liberally apply the redness remedy. Let it set for a minute or two and then apply the primer (I use original). The primer would help lock it in. Let it set and then apply my make-up as normal. After just one use I saw a huge difference. My skin has never looked so good. The redness is minimal, the bumps are shrinking and even the dryness is so much better. This is not a cure for rosacea. I still have to avoid those food triggers etc, but, this product makes a huge difference. For the first time in years I feel pretty...and I'm wearing blush. Something I haven't done for at least 15 years. I'll use the Redness Remedy forever. Thank you Bare Minerals. Thank you William!!!
A Wonderful New Product!
When I first started using Redness Remedy, I could not see what the big deal was about. Then...I reread the directions and was amazed at the phenomenal chance in a weeks time. When using, you must pat the powder onto your face. Personally, I really pat a good amount on before I go to bed, and the redness I had on my check is nearly gone. Thanks.
The brush and small "rocks"
Really like the product, however, there are two things they need to correct. They need to sell it without the brush. I don't need to pay for a new brush every time I purchase it. Also, as I start to get to the end of the product, it comes out in small rocks. I feel like I am wasting the product, because your brush can not "pick up" those "rocks" nor can they be applied to your face. Please correct these two things and the product will be perfect..
Not what I expected
I went to the store to purchase another PRIME TIME NEUTRALIZING FOUNDATION PRIMER that worked very well when the sales clerk explained that this product would reduce my redness permanently. It was more expensive and did not cover my redness as well as the prime time. I had to make sure I put it on right after my moisturizer or it wouldn't stay on. It was hard to get out of the container and the brush was worthless. I will stick to prime time from now one.
A staple in my make-up bag
I have rosacea, and while using a concealer and foundation covers the redness pretty well, it doesn't help the uncomfortable flushing feeling on my cheeks. When I found Redness Remedy online, I just had to try it. I love it!!! As another reviewer stated, my face actually looks better even without foundation. I use it after my primer and before foundation in the morning, and after moisturizing at night. This is a product I will not find myself without.
I love this product
I'm 22 yrs old and I get really bad rosasia on my cheeks. Before I was using a lot of foundation to cover it up but with the redness remedy I'm using a lot less to cover my face. The only thing I would like to see change is the brush comes with it every time. I have plenty of brushes already so if they could find a way to sell just the powder that would be awesome.
Beyond my wildest dreams!
I am fair-skinned and have these permanent dark reddish circles under my eyes. I've tried so many concealers to hide these circles, but the dark red circles always seem to show thru the concealer. Before now, the MOST EFFECTIVE conealers I've used were BE's Well-Rested, with BE's Bisque concealer applied on top. But still I needed a little help with the redness. My Redness Remedy arrived and I was eager to use it, but remained a bit skeptical. As I applied Redness Remedy, I was totally blown away and very pleasantly surprised to see the redness fade and then disappear!!! I am SO PLEASED with this product!! Finally, a product that is actually worthy of it's name! Thank you, BE, for helping me to solve this problem!!!
I was so hoping this would work.
I used it for one month twice daily and it didn't change a thing.
I love this product!!
I absolutely love this product. I have fair skin with patches of redness on my cheeks and nose. This product has significantly toned down the redness and even in photographs, my skin looks even toned.
Couldn't be happier!
I have rosacea that covers all of my nose and spreads over to both cheeks and up a little on my forehead. I have tried many products that are recommended for redness and this is the ONLY one that has ever worked! I moisturize then apply it and the redness almost completely disappears! Once I apply my foundation, you cannot see ANY redness at all. The other thing I have noticed is that I very rarely have any rosacea blisters crop up and I was having to deal with them all of the time prior to using BE products. I will never change products - these are AWESOME!! Especially this Redness Remedy! Thank you BE!!
Don't waste your money on this one!
I was excited to hear that there was a product like this to hide redness and spider veins. It is supposed to nuetralize the red in your skin. Well, after trying it for 3 days I am very disappointed. This product doesn't hide anything, rather it seems to make the spider veins more apparent. I will be returning this product.
It's How You Apply It..mostly
I have a big red patch that runs from the top of my temple down to my cheek (it has spread slowly since high school). Anyway, I use the small end of the brush and just dab it on. I rarely use the bigger end. It usually ends up where it's a little cakey, but it doesn't matter since I will be putting my foundation over it, or I'm sure just buffing it with a different brush could solve the problem too.
The one thing I don't really understand is that you have to buy the whole kit, it looks like, every time you want to purchase Redness Remedy. This will be my second time buying it, but I already have the brush! I guess I am just thinking in my "budget mind" and wouldn't mind saving a couple of dollars and just getting the powder...and the thought of wasting a perfectly good brush.
I have redness covering my nose/cheeks and from reading the reviews, thought this would be a miracle cure. But like some other reviewers, I am disappointed. I find that this product is 'blah' and does nothing at all. My redness shows through. I have tried the different ways of applying it from the reviews but nothing seems to work. Perhaps it is my skin type or something but I was expecting more from this. I will continue to use it in hope that it just takes time to work for me. #I love the other BE products so was disappointed that this didn't deliver, well, for me anyway. Pleased for the others that it works for!#
So glad I tried Redness Remedy!!
I have suffered from rosacea for years and, even with treatment by a dermatologist, have never been able to control the redness on my cheeks and chin. During a recent shopping trip to a Bare Minerals boutique, one of the consultants there suggested this product. Although I was skeptical, I agreed to have the consultant show me how to use the product and apply it to my problem areas. I was quite happy with the immediate look: it covered all of the redness and capillaries without looking yellow at all. Even more surprising, when I awoke the next morning and washed my face, the redness was visibly diminished. I was pleasantly stunned! I have used it for the last three nights after washing and moisturizing my face before bed, and the change is dramatic already. My skin looks so much calmer, better than it ever has with any other treatment. I have used Bare Minerals concealer and foundation to successfully cover my redness but, even better, this product is literally taking the redness away. After only three days, I am no longer using concealer on these areas, and the amount of foundation needed on my face has lessened, so my makeup is even more natural looking than before. I am ecstatic! I definitely will continue to use Redness Remedy, and pray that the results will only improve with prolonged use. Please continue making this product; it has been an overwhelmingly positive experience for me! I firmly believe Bare Minerals products are the best I have ever used!!
Finally found something that works for ME!!!
I have used other brands that promise to reduce my redness on my cheeks and now i found something that finally works for me . as i look back at old pictures of me when i started dating my husband back in 2010 i see the redness and that above all is the one thing i don't like about my skin and now using this product i have seen the difference i still have a little of the redness every now and then but not as bad as i did back in 2010, I love this product and i hope Bare Escentuals keeps it on the market for people like ME(:
I really like this product. I bought it mostly because I wear foundation to cover up redness around my nose and chin. I was surprised at how much the redness was reduced after extended use. This is not a one time fix. While the powder is tinted to reduce redness in the short term, you really see the difference after using it everyday. Great product, defiantly works like they say it does.
THIS STUFF REALLY WORKS!!
I have spent to may hours in the harsh Wyoming sun and the winters here dip to -40 below zero which has wreck my skin over the years. I have rosy red cheeks and broken capillaries that I have struggled to camouflage, sooth and protect without success, Until Redness Remedy! It has reduced my rosy reds (bare skin )in an amazing 3 days! It goes on smooth and with a little Ready Foundation over top, my capillaries are completely hidden with out looking caked or overly made up. I have been using it at night after my moisturizer as suggested, and it has improved (healed) my redness dramatically. I don't understand how it is works, but it really is healing my sun/wind/cold damaged skin and I can tell it is protecting it every time I wear it, from further environmental damage. This is the best product ever and the price is a no brainer. I have spent so much more on products that promise the same result and got nothing like the results I am getting with Redness Remedy. i'm using this one for life. Good Job BareMinerals! Thank you.
This is the first bareMinerals purchase I've ever made and I'm very happy with the results. I'm 46 and I've always had red, oily, acne-prone, uneven skin tone. When I read the product works best with continual use and it contained natural ingredients, I had to try it. From what I've learned about diet and skin, many experience redness from eating dairy and sugar so I drastically reduced both and use this product morning and before bed. Definitely improved skin tone and reduced pore size in only a week. SIGNIFICANTLY less oily as well as major improvement in softness and smoothness of skin. I no longer look inflamed. Diet change and this product have resulted in unsolicited compliments from my mom and husband. I use this product as a base powder with a small amount of blush. No other makeup thru the day except for late afternoon translucent powder. So happy I tried it and just bought intensive glow pads to give them a try. Never took the time to write a review before now, that's how impressed I am.
worked for me!
From the reviews, it's clear that this product doesn't work for everyone who has facial redness. I purchased it knowing this in the hope that I would be one of the people it worked for--and I am! A couple hours after the very first application, I noticed a difference. I've now been using it for a few days now, morning and night, and I have noticed a definite reduction in the overall redness of my face. I'm delighted to have found such a product and, for me, it's well worth the price. It's too bad they don't sell smaller samples of this product so people could spend only a few dollars to try it out and see if it works for them.
Was eager to try this product as I have a whole case full of BE stuff. My skin is very sensitive. My skin gets itchy, burny, blotchy and red, especially around the nose, mouth and on my throat. I was really hoping to get some relief from the Redness Remedy but after using more than half the product there's no change. My skin is still red, itching, and burning. The yellow powder does nothing to cover the redness. The first time I used it my skin was actually more red than it was before! I left the powder on and stuck with it. The increased redness subsided after about 2 hours. Certainly won't be buying this product again.
My nose is red so I too had high hopes for this product. However it just doesn't do anything. I apply it and it looks exactly the same- if there's any difference it's an off yellow over red.
And I'm shocked that this product didn't work when everything else I have from bareMinerals is awesome. bareMinerals has changed the way I feel about make-up- I now actually like wearing make-up, I love it and I'm so grateful. But this is the first bareMinerals product to let me down.
After breastfeeding for over 2 years, my hormones went whack-O! Suddenly, I had a constant "embarrassed" look...blushing, rosy.
Lisa in the SF Westfield store suggested Redness Remedy. After she put it on, the redness in my face disappeard.
I used the tinted mineral veil on top as well.
I recommend this product for those going through hormonal changes or just struggling with a redness issue.
The best thing is...you don't feel anything on your skin!
I have lots of redness in my cheeks and I was always using lots of foundation and still couldnt cover it all. This worked so well. It looks yellow in the container but I didn't have the problem of it turning my face yellow and I have very pinkish skin. I used foundation over it and it was amazing, all the redness was gone. If you have a problem with redness, this is a must buy!!!
I had very high hopes for this product. I was very disappointed. I wanted something to reduce the appearance of roscea on my face, this did nothing for me.
Wow!!! Wonderful product for covering Rosacea!
I have rosacea and trying to find a product to cover it has been next to impossible. I tried the Redness Remedy and almost cried. My face looked 200 times better! You could still see some pink on my cheeks but I can now go makeup free and not feel embarrassed. My fiance asked what I did to my face because there was no redness. This product has given me a confidence that I've never known before. When I use the Redness Remedy under my Bare Minerals foundation you can't even tell that I have rosacea. I get so many compliments on my skin, I'm a loyal customer for life!!!
I must say that after using this for about a month I was really surprised at how much the redness on my cheeks and between my eyebrows had disappeared. I am very fair skinned and really enjoy seeing these results!!!
The smell of this product is absolutely uuhhh-mazing! This product wasn't necessarily effective for me, but it's still a good product. From my experience, you have to be consistent with it's application. I found it to be soothing and gentle, not at all irritating.
