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!

I received a generous sample of this, but didnīt even used it up. On my skin, it just feels like it has a lot of alcohol in it, and it doesnīt deliver enough moisture for me - really, I canīt imagaine this is a good moisturizer for anybody except those with really oily skin, or in very high temperatures in summer. The light green color of the product didnīt do anything to lessen the visibility of my redness or even out the skintone, it was just absolutely translucent when applied. So - not a good product for me.

DO NOT use this product if you have an active rosacea flare up. After a week of brutal cold (> 10 F) and wind, I not only had burning, redness, and nbumps but my face hurt!
I went to CVS and got roped into trying this by the "Beauty Advisor" there. I tried it last night and woke up the morning to a burning face that's redder than yesterday and had red dots all over the place. This product is going back today.
This is truly one of the worst products I've used for Rosacea.

i've been using this product for around 4 months, hoping that it would calm the redness i have around my cheeks and nose area. i have very sensitive skin due to my eczema and bought this hoping that it would make the redness go down. but it doesnt really work. i mean it doesnt cause me breakouts or anything, but it hasn't improved the condition of my face either. and sometimes it hardens quickly when i apply it and it becomes weird green stuff. so i have to blend really quickly.
at least it comes with a pump so it's hygienic and easy to use. but the bottle is opaque so i can't tell how much is left.

I have no regret buying this product. Initially when I first used it, my skinfelt slightly itch but I think could be due to common syptom when start using a new product. Despite the itch, after 3 days of using it continuously, I find that my redness has reduced. Very encouraged by what I see, I decided to buy a new cleanser, and I bought the toleraine cleansing cream and felt very my very clean n nice good. Note: Skin still feel sligtly itch After applying Rosaliac especially in the night time. But the itch has stopped significantly after I sprayed La Roche Posay Thermal water. On top of that, my skin redness has reduced more.
Conclusion: I personally think
that to get the best result, it's best to use La Roche Posay complete set of product! However, I find that I am not suitable to use effaclar h as my face look so greasy, redness increased and felt itch too.
I have just bought a new bottle of effaclar M and lo..ve it! My skin is not so
oily anymore. And whenever I find my face getting red, I will use the Rosaliac and I can see immediate result.
I am really pleased with the result.

I had good experience with Toleriane Riche Soothing Protection Cream and figured I give this a try since I have dry and sensitive skin with redness - wrong decision. I felt stinging immediately after I put it on and instead of calming the redness, it actually flared up my skin and I developed hive-like bumps, not to mention the itch. Returned it the very next day.

Truth be told, I didn't think that this product would work as I was concerned about the presence of denatured alcohol in it. But, Dr Leslie Baumann recommends it for redness in her book, The Skin Type Solution. So, I finally got up the courage to try it. So glad that I did. Within a week, the redness and angry little red bumps on my cheeks (from too much BHA use), significantly diminished and the redness is almost all gone. I've had no breakouts with this product either. Other reviewers have reported irritation but I have not had any with this product either. This is the basic Rosaliac moisturizer without sunscreen that I am reviewing as I have not seen the SPF version that others are talking about. I used the Rosaliac moisturizer after washing my face with the Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cream Moisturizer. I also applied the Toleriane Fluide over the Rosaliac and this left my skin so soothed and moisturized without a greasy feel. The green tint of the Rosaliac disappears once applied to skin, so it doesn't change the color of my skin. It's great under makeup and makes my mineral makeup last longer without caking or greasiness.
I'm really happy with the way my skin is improving and will continue to repurchase.

I've only been using this for 3-4 weeks in a combination with other products in their line for sensitive/irritated skin. It works great for my acne, mild rosascea, sensitive and irritated skin. It has in fact reduced some redness already and it doesn't clog my pores. My skin feels less irritated, so I guess, reading the other reviews, that this is just a product you have to test and see. I've never reacted on it. The green shade on the cream doesn't do anything, but that's okey as I use Shiseido's green stick to cover my cheeks. Also, I have trouble with shiny skin, this makes it very shiny once I put it on, but after it sinks into the skin it's pretty darn matte. Think I've found my new product-line :)
EDIT; Does not give me enough moisture during the winter.

please please exercise extreme caution with this cream. I am a huge fan of LRP products, but I had the worst allergic reaction of my life with this product. I would go as far as to call it quite dangerous. My face went bright red and swelled to twice it's normal size.also developed those awful infected whiteheads others have talked about in relation to this product.I'm sorry I did not get a tester first. Not only did I throw 22euro down the drain, I was also extremely disapointed with the way the LRP representative handled my complaint. The whole experience has really turned me off LRP.

I used the rosaliac XL version of this which is the SPF version, this factor could be the reason it was unsuccesfull for me; i used it for 4 days and the first 2 were great - it made all redness disapear but gave me bad zits instead!As others have rerported there were dozens of tiny underskin spots all over my face which are different to the regular odd spot i may get. I have mild acne rosecea, pretty dry and very sensitive skin. The lotion - despite being called 'riche' was pretty matt so not good if you like a moisture surge!But make-up went on great but ended up feling dry underneath after a cuouple of hours. ItI did the job with the redness but had left me with a face full of spots -im not sure which is worse!This isnt moisturising enough for me and have switched back to dermalogica.

This is a pretty non-irritating product, and I am so easily irritated. I think that using it in combination with other La Roche products finally got me rid of my redness - until I started messing around with new products again... The green tint is useless, but otherwise it is a non-greasy, light moisturizer. I'd buy again definitely - in fact, I already have!

I really like this so far, although I have only been using it for a week and so I don't notice any significant improvements. I love the texture of this cream & it really smooths out my cheeks which are prone to little bumps (Keratosis Pilaris). It kind of smells like cucumbers to me, although it is fragrance free. The only thing I would change about this moisturizer so far is add an SPF and while reading reviews on here it appears that there is another version with SPF so problem solved :) If you are prone to redness and have chronic tight/dry facial skin you should really try this out!

If you have Rosacea you need to use these products. I started and stopped b/c I believed it wasn't working. I was missing the rest of the regimen and therefore it did not work. Much of Rosacea is exacerbated by the use of the wrong cleanser. Most are too harsh for this skin type. You must use the line together.
Start cleansing with either the Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser or Rosaliac Gelee Micellar Make-up Removal Gel and though neither cleanser requires rinsing use the Thermal water after cleansing and let air dry. Apply the Rosaliac Anti-Redness cream along with La Roche Posay eye cream.
Stick with it for several days and you will see a significant calming. I would use the Rosaliac XL instead of the regular one as it has a spf which will help to further protect your skin. I have tried everything on the market and this by far the best line I have ever used and one of the more moderately priced. Do spritz throughout the day with the Thermal Water as it will continue to keep your hydrated and heat free.
