I absolutely love love love this product. I have really annoying redness on my cheeks and a little on my nose and this does the trick. I have also used it with the redness solutions green tinted base for those extra red days. It also comes with a cute retractable kabuki. what cool about it is that all I have to do is load up my kabuki and throw it in my purse and I have a touch up when I need it. So convenient.
This has really made a difference on decisions that I make when it comes to choosing the makeup that I am going to wear, such as my blush.
I donít know what I did before I found this. It has made such a huge difference.
I was going to Clinique with the intent of looking for a foundation. Instead, I ended up leaving with this product and I'm glad I did. I had no idea that this product even existed until the lady suggested it to me. I tend to turn pink/red around my cheeks during the warmer weather months, after I've been moving around a lot, or have been active during the day. This product definitely helps with toning down the redness. I always use this product on top of Clinique City Block or on top of foundation. If I use this product on its own, it doesn't work as well. The little brush that comes with it does not work well. Instead, I use a kabuki brush or powder brush to apply the product.
I tried this in different ways and was most convinced of its redness reduction when I wore this simply over sunscreen etc (no foundation). It gave my skin a more even look and the color I want it to look - my skin without the pinkness! Unfortunately by the 5th day I was also convinced that my skin was having a reaction to the product as day by day there was an increase in the number of little red spots and small whiteheads I had (I had none to begin with). It will come in handy though over my chest area for the very rare occassion that we have a special event. I found that when I wore my regular make up and put this over my rosacea flushed chest it gave me a much more even appearance.
When I apply this, I have to apply a lot to cover up the redness, and it ends up looking cakey; however, it does "cover the redness" - it just makes me look yellow.
The brush is just plain trash and enough said; I won't be purchasing this again . (especially for like $45 CAN)
I really wanted to like this. From the advertisement claims, it seemed to be just what I needed. I have rosacea, sensitive skin, oily in the t-zone, dry on the cheeks. Unfortunately applying this to clean bare skin causes it to be much too oily in the t-zone, to the point where even additional oil control products couldn't control it.
The brush it comes with is cheap, it will leave black brush hairs all over your face and is worthless. I'd rather just buy a product, rather than to have to pay for a crappy brush too. This powder didn't cover the rosacea broken capillaries either, as it claimed it would.
I was surprised that a makeup product this expensive (and geared to those of us with delicate, problem skin) would include Bismuth in the ingredients. I didn't think that was even being used in makeup anymore considering how itchy and damaging to sensitive skin it can be.
I haven't tried anything else in the Clinque Redness Solutions product line, but this is getting returned. I don't recommend this product.
I use this powder after a mineral powder that matches my skin.
Just a little bit not a lot of the Clinique Redness Solution Powder, and definitely not alone. You for sure need a foundation on before it, then you lightly brush this over it and your skin looks matched perfectly. It all mixes, and it does not look like you are wearing a lot of make up. Use a mineral powder first, then this and your face will look amazing. I love it!!!!!!!!!!!
This powder is wonderful! After being a slave to heavy makeup because of my roseacea, I discovered the Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base SPF 15 first, and paired with the Instant Relief Mineral Powder, I can get away with no foundation! It's great. I use the DPB first and let it sink in for about 5 minutes (that's very important - If you use the powder right after applying the base, it WILL look cakey.) Then I buff the IRMP onto my face with the Everyday Minerals flat-top brush. Add mascara and some gloss and you're good to go!
The clinique redness relief moisturizer is such a miracle product that I was compelled to try this powder. The first time I used it i did so as a finishing powder, over my MAC foundation and instead of transluscent powder. I was a peculiar hue, slightly yellow to my eyes but friends claimed they didn't see that. Next I moved on to putting it UNDER my foundation. now THAT WORKS. On clean moisturized face I put this powder on (using a MAC eye shadow brush for precision). I applied it rather heavily then patted it in with my finger. Let it sit that way while I did my eyes, then put on my foundation. EXCELLENT RESULT. It covered redness, did calm my face, and wore well. I kept up this under make up appliation technique for a week and lo my skin was indeed happier and clearer and more even. I've been using it for 2 mos now and honestly my skin has never looked better. I am thrilled. So yes i recommend this product, but personally i find it works best right on skin versus over foundation. It lasts for ages so i can't imagine running out of it anytime soon. if/when it does, i would repurchase. It's great to "dot on" blemishes or problem area once you finish your foundation too.
I bought this product because I saw it on a magazine ad and it seemed like it'd fit me. So I went and purchased it. I already read the reviews and like everyone has mentioned before. I still have to use cover up in order to hide any pimples and blemishes. However, it definetly does cover most of the redness around my face. The brush that the powder comes with is what I use. It's not the best brush but it's small and compact which is the reason why I like it. The bristles on the brush however aren't soft so if you want, toss it out and use a better brush. Overall, the product works but it's not a miracle product.
I saw the ad for this and got really excited- i have crap skin- it's cursed with acne to the point i see a dermatologist, i have an oily t-zone but dry skin everywhere else. when i bend down to pick something up, my face flushes! so i tried this only because it was accidentally on sale (mistake in an ad) and i had a gift card. it does do the job.. somewhat. it definitely tones down the redness and it makes it more pinkish. i don't know if i'm not putting enough, but after a long day at work sweating it out in retail, my face ends up flushed again. so it works for a little, then it doesn't. but that's how my skin is with any foundation/concealer etc. probably won't buy again unless i get the same good deal as i did before (extremely unlikely). i find that everyday minerals' mint concealer works about the same level, and it only costs about $5.
