I love this product! I've used it for years now. I have very pale skin and also have rosacea. My rosacea causes me to flush/blush frequently, I have perpetually "rosy" cheeks, and when my skin is really reacting it is tender/painful to the touch. This gel doesn't take away all the redness, it does make it a little lighter. Also it keeps my skin much less reactive. I went for a few months not using the gel, and did notice a increase in flushing/blushing in my skin. I also have noticed that my face is less tender when I use this daily. Boots No.7 Calm Skin Redness-relief Gel is a product I use everyday underneath my moisturizer and will continue to do so! I recommend this to anyone with sensitive/reactive skin!
I get redness on my cheeks and forehead and this stuff really helps to calm that and keep my face looking balanced. Is it a miracle? No, but its the best I've found to keep rendess at peace, lol. Price is steep but hey, if you use a pea sized amount twice a day its not too bad. It also is actually very moisturizing and feels lovely on your face! Until I find something that is a miracle i'll stick with this!! :)
Pretty, as well as hygienic, packaging
Light film-feeling when applied
Worked as a decent foundation primer, which increased my foundation longevity by two and a half hours
The redness-relief only seems to last for a few minutes
Expensive, even for a drugstore or mid-store item ($20.00 USA)
Didn't moisturize my skin
I would never purchase this again as it fails to deliver its promise.
