I have rosacea, and I'm always looking for products that will help calm or conceal. I liked this product okay. I couldn't tell that it reduced my redness any, though it didn't make it worse; and it did feel cool and minty when I applied it. It wasn't super-moisturizing; it was rather light. Not a bad product, but for $40 (approx), I'm not sure I'll repurchase.

Pro's: cooling sensation, non-offensive fragrance.

Con's: price, lack of substantial reduction in redness, not super-moisturizing, no way to get the bottle open to get the last bit of product out.

I wish I had read reviews here before trying this one. I read only a few on the retailers site. As I can see, other people with sensitive skin had trouble with it, which is indeed counter-intuitive and disappointing from this brand. This moisturiser caused immediate heat and itching, and after I washed it off I was left with two big red itchy bumps on my forehead, which required hydro-cortisone cream, which is not something I like to put on my face. Plus it's green! I want it to control redness because the ingredients are strengthening capillaries, not because it's putting a green film on my skin. Awful!!!

I bought this based on reviews from other sites and was disheartened to see a VERY low score on here. But I wanted to give it a shot before tossing such an expensive product.

It comes in a small pump container with a nice looking frosted plastic cap. The pump is really nice and allows a lot of control over the amount of product dispensed. The product has a faint smell that isn't terribly pleasant, but it's faint and I can't smell it after applying. It is green tinted, but not terribly so. It won't give you hulk face even if you overapply it.

When I first put it on I thought for sure this was going to be terrible. It kind of stung/burned right when I put it on and I kind of went "oh %^&*" expecting several days of puffy red face. However, the discomfort only lasted a second. Imagine my surprise when the redness in my face subsided considerably after a few hours! I had been using Skinceuticals redness neutralizer and it was good, not great. But coupled with this, it's fantastic! My skin is much less red and blotchy. I'm really happy with this!

It's somewhat moisturizing but on my dry skin I need something else on top. Not a problem though.

I have rosacea for 18 years now, it began when I was 30. So I have been looking for a good moisturizer for years.. This product seemed to be advertised or marketed specifically for rosacea sufferers but I had a terrible reaction to it. After 2 days I had a trail of red bumps from the forehead down to my upper lip under my skin, while the surface of my skin began to flake. This is not a cheap product to buy and ended up in the bin.

As others here have mentioned, use caution with this product if you have sensitive skin. This seems counterintuitive considering that this product is supposed to be soothing, but I had a terrible reaction to it. My skin broke out in hives and my eyelids were nearly swollen shut. I suspect it is the niacinimide, which is a B vitamin present in this product, that is causing this to happen. The one positive thing I noted was that my stubborn adult acne seemed to clear up during the few days I did use this. Go figure.

I dont have rosacea, but my skin is sensitive and tends to get red in some areas esp. in winter...
I was recommended the Rosaliac moisturizer in the pharmacy.. so i gave it a go and i have to say that it does absolutely nothing for the red areas... Just wondering if it is working on the people who really struggle with real rosacea.
It calms the skin down, it is a good basic treatment for sensitive skin, but it doesnt do more than Cetaphil or some creams from Avene etc.

I bought this advised by a "beauty expert" at a local store when asking about my redness, caused by another product. She recommended the 'thicker' version because my skin was very dry in places When I use it, it feels good and smooth on the skin, the main problem is that before calming down the redness, IT BRINGS IT ALL OUT!! It's funny that it has SPF protection because I would recommend it more as a night moisturizer.

I do feel my redness is significantly reduced overnight when I put it on before going to sleep, and it has calmed down some of the smaller red dots on my face, but it definitely isn't a treatment for long-lasting results, However I did say I'd buy this product again because so far it's the only anti-redness cream I've found that actually has done something for my skin, so until I find something better, I guess I'll keep up with it.

I found a sample of this in the back of my makeup drawer so I decided to give it a go. After two days I noticed a BIG improvement on my skin tone. Hyper pigmentation had lessened and my overall tone looked awesome. It was also FANTASTIC under my primer/foundation

So i went out and bought the full size. Low and behold after two more days use I got a big underneath the skin bump on my cheek (the place I break out when my pores are clogged as opposed to hormonal causes). So since my skin has cleared up and this is the first big bump in awhile I returned it. :( Sad because it seemed to be improving the tone of my skin. I guess if you're not acne-prone give it a whirl.

The search for a moisturizer that doesn't break me out continues...

This is a pretty average moisturiser. Unfortunately I can't say for sure whether its helped my redness as I have changed so many other things in my skin care regime that have made my skin calmer. Its fine as a moisturiser - its great for my oily skin as the coverage is very light, good packaging and feels extremely comfortable on the skin, no irritation. I don't think the green pigment is necessary and overall the product is way overpriced.
Edit: I've decided to give this another lippy because I've continued to use this far longer than any other moisturiser. I really like the way it sets my serum and my skin really isn't noticeably red anymore and doesn't make it greasy. I can't wait to try the SPF version as I seem to have a sensitivity reaction to a lot of moisturisers but not this one.

It's not a good product! Doesn't help for redness and it doesn't moisturize the skin. Waste of money. I just bought Eucerin - Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Sensitive Skin Creme and it takes off almost ALL the redness and is very nice and moisturizing. I recommend to try this instead!
