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.
