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!!!
You have to try this!!
I have struggled with a lot of redness my whole life and although being rosy-cheeked as a child might be attractive, it's not so much so as a middle-aged adult. This product works wonders! Most products are much too yellow and don't do a good job at balancing the redness in my skin. However, this one is amazing at providing that balance and makes my rosy-cheeks glowing healthy! Trying is believing.
This might be my favorite BE product. Products of any brand never seem to work for me... until I used this! I can be comfortable without makeup now! It instantly soothes my skin and gives it a cool, hydrated feel. It magically and instantly removes redness from my skin. Love it!
Not worth it
I've been using this product for 3 weeks, but it is not delivering. It does not conceal redness on contact as advertised, nor have I seen any effects over time.
I will not be purchasing this product again. However, I really love the brush it came with, almost enough to say the brush is worth the $27! It's soft, and the dual ends make it so I can pack light. Love it.
Flawless complexion starter
I don't have skin problems that cause redness other than apple-red cheeks. Most people say I am lucky that I don't need blush, but I am embarrassed by it. The redness remedy tones down my natural blush and I don't feel as self-conscious about it. It may sound silly, but I feel more confident and pretty after using this!
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!
