My rosacea was flaring up, so I bought a sample of the Garden of Wisdom (GoW) Rosacea Serum to see if it would help. I began using it twice a day, and I am seeing great results with no flushing. I have oil skin (but no acne). I read some reviews here that it dried out peoples' skin. I have not had that problem, but it may be related to having oily skin or it may be related to using it in conjunction with GoW's Rosacea Oil Blend. This product is a bit expensive, but it seems to have helped my skin.GoW's website states: Our Rosacea Serum fights rosacea redness with a mixture of seabuckthorn seed oil and mandelic acid,by getting to the root of the problem -- rosacea mites. These are mites that live on skin, and an over abundance of them causes sensitivity, inflammation, and the notable redness common with rosacea. Also very healing, it helps to repair skin and calm it as well. This serum may cause stinging or tingling, because it is causing the rosacea mites to stir and become upset at first. After a few applications, however, the stinging should go away.

I have tried several HA serums in the past- Skinceuticals (very expensive), Reviva (good but recently reformulated) The Ordinary (broke me out) and Hada Labo (irritation)- however I find Garden of Wisdom to be the most effective and best value of the ones I've tried. I do however have a feeling hyaluronic acid is slightly irritating to my skin, but I still think it's a well formulated product though. I really appreciate GoW for their simple formulations without any unnecessary ingredients, which can be great for finicky sensitive skin and you only need a tiny drop per application, so very good value too, I just don't think it's right for my skin.UPDATE: This ended up really irritating my skin fairly badly and I'm still recovering.

This works so well for my finicky, dry skin- I use it as a spot treatment and it isn't drying at all for me (unlike The Ordinary and PC SA products). Fragrance free, lasts forever and extremely effective without making skin too flaky, it's almost moisturizing although I would still be a little hesitant to apply on broken skin but that goes for any acid. I used it on several large cystic zits I developed from the OCM and it took down the redness and pain very quickly. The only downside is the slight 'filmy' almost greasy, texture when dried, which makes more tricky to wear in the daytime however that is a very minor negative.UPDATE: This ended up really irritating my skin in the long run sadly, I haven't experienced such a bad reaction for a long time.

This is my HG cleansing oil. De-greases my combination skin and rinses clean with no trace of irritation or stripping. Perfection! Also very cost-effective.

Tried this as part of "Calm and Restore Recovery Kit". Overall, a very nice gentle morning cleanser. It is one of the few cleansers that doesn't leave my sensitive combination skin tight. As it says on the label, it DOESN'T remove makeup.
