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.
