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.
I had such high expectations
Based on the reviews, I had such high expectations for this product. I have suffered with mild/medium rosacea for the last 30 years. i was so disappointed after using the product. Not only did I get no coverage for the redness, I actually started to break out wherever i had applied the product. I do not have sensitive skin and was very surprised when this occurred. I hope the product works better for other people.
My daughter has a neurological condition that causes her to flush frequently. She swears by this product. We would just like it to be available without the brush so subsequent purchases could be cheaper.
Not what I was hoping for...
I was looking for something to even my face out. The sales girl told me what a great product this was and would help etc etc. I gladly bought it. I haven't been disappointed with their other products I have tried before.
Ive been using it as directed but It hasnt treated anything. I still have the same problem with red cheeks and nose. If i use it as a concealer it doesnt work too well. If I use it as a treatment it hasnt helped my situation.
If I wake up with a little redness and use it as a concealer it works a bit but if I have a little darker redness it doesnt do the trick.
Almost, but Not Quite
This product does help cover up my rosacea, but it does not help it to heal. I can use my foundation and small brush and achieve the same 'covered' look.
I Was Surprised!
I bought this and didn't open it for a while as I was busy over the winter holidays. I have had rosacea for approximately 30 years and have used everything - currently using what I had found to be the best. Even so, I have several red patches of capillaries which seemed to be worsening on my cheeks and a broken out patch on my chin. When I finally opened Redness Remedy and started using it a few weeks ago, some clear spaces appeared in the patches on my cheeks, and the breakout on my chin is getting smaller. I was *very* surprised to see this much difference in these serious problem areas, and wonder if there will be more? (I started using it all over my face!) I don't get total coverage from the powder because the areas are so dark and my skin is so light, but foundation takes care of them. There is really something new and different here, and I am very grateful for the results!
Try before you buy ...
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.
