A while ago I talked about using LaRoche Posay Rosaliac in order to reduce my redness. I have sensitive skin and rosacea. While I know rosacea is not curable unless you undergo a laser treatment, I am still a sucker for creams that claim to be able to reduce redness.
So, while the Laroche product did not work for me for many reasons ( I will link the blog posts at the end of this post), a week ago I was at the Clinique contour in Boots and a woman came up and asked the sales assistant for the Redness Solutions Face Cream because the sample had worked so well for her and she wanted to buy the full size.
My ears popped out like a cartoon and I started listening carefully. Eavesdropper…. I know.
I then thought,
Hmmmmm, should I give it a shot?
To cut a long story short, I didn’t get it then, but I did a few days ago in Greece where Clinique is much cheaper.
According to the beautician,
It does not cure rosacea but it does make the redness softer and the skin looks better.
I paid 4o euros and got it. I will be testing it for me and you guys.
According to the (Greek) Clinique Pamphlet
- It helps reduce visible redness
- it prevents future redness ‘outbreak’
OK, so I translated the pamphlet loosely, but bear with me. In a few words, it will help reduce/ get rid of redness
Plastic and not heavy. I got 50 mls. Typical clinique skin care packaging.
Feeling on the skin
It is a thick consistency. Imagine putting a Nivea cream on your face. That’s what it feels like. Thick. It does not get absorbed quickly. It takes time. If you accidentally lick it off your lips, it does not taste like poison (I know that is a weird thing to say in a review, but did taste it).
My skin’s condition
OK, now the embarrassing pictures. Before makeup, horrible close up :p and rosacea in all its glory. Let’s focus on the after makeup shot :).
A few days later……..
Interesting info: I have had this post in my drafts for about a week and have been using the cream. I think the redness is softening. That’s weird. I have a good feeling. I will give a follow up in about 20 days, OK. So stay tuned. Don’t forget to follow my blog for an update.
You can find small samples of the Clinique redness solutions line on Amazon.
