This seemed to work okay for a few days and then my skin started becoming blotchy and rough. It just didn't agree with my sensitive combo skin.

For the time ever this winter, I got these red dry blotches on my cheeks that burned. So, I decided to change cleansers, and found Eucerin for visibly red skin (which is what I had). It was so gentle, and within 2 weeks, my red blotches were gone. I like that's it's a gel and does not foam up, which I've read strips your skin. Eucerin leaves my skin feeling clean, but not over dry. I don't know how it will work during the humid summer, but for now, it is my go-to winter cleanser!

I love, love, love this product. I love their whole line. I have very sensitive, dry skin with patches of eczema on my face. This does not sting my face, make it feel tight or dry, does not break me out and my redness went away AND actually takes off my eye-makeup. This is way better than Cetaphil. Cetaphil doesn't even get my makeup off and my face does not feel clean after using it. For the people saying they had red itchy patches, LAY OFF THE HOT WATER. I found hot water makes me dry and itchy and I leave the shower with red patches all over. Wash with lukewarm water instead. UPDATE: Okay, as far as COMMERCIAL cleansers go, I still say this one is the best. BUT.........I just discovered the oil cleansing method, and WOW. You gotta check it out!!! My skin looks even better after only a couple of days. My skin tone is even and my breakouts have gone down to nil. Check it out under Unlisted Cleansers!!! And yes, I am red/acne prone and now have neither!

This is a great soap-free cleanser! And yes, this means that it won't foam when you use it, but that doesn't mean that it's not working. It's a cool feeling, refreshing, yellow-colored gel wash that feels really nice on my face, and rinses off pretty well. It takes off makeup reasonably well, with the exception of my mascara (Shiseido primer + Fatale, which is formidable for any cleanser or makeup remover!). Most importantly, when I finished washing my face, even after the first time, my face wasn't red. Not even a little bit. I really think that my face looks calmer and the redness has really been helped with this! Others with rosacea or other redness may find this as helpful as I have!

I was recently diagnosed with eczema (I am in my thirties), never had eczema prior to this nor does it run on either my Paternal or Maternal sides of families. I had been using a product from my local vitamin shop for facial cleansing that worked well but I became ultra sensitve to it, irritated and burned my skin/facial area. So, I researched, A LOT and decided to try this Eucerin cleanser. So far I am impressed. It doesn't irritate my skin at all, takes all of my make up off (including the eye area make up) without sensitivity or tightness which is a big issue for me and the cleansers that I have tried and used. The "jury" is still out for now as to whether I will purchase this cleanser again as I am now experiencing reactions to products/items that I have used in the past and present for years and have become allergic to. I am hoping this is not one of those products/items since it has worked so well, thus far. I am keeping my "fingers" crossed.

This cleanser doesn't foam up or really even clean all that well. I used it in the mornings instead of Cetaphil, which is what I usually use in the morning and I use Eucerin Pore Purifying cleanser at night (I stocked up when it was discontinued). Unfortunately this cleanser made me break out in lots of little pimples. This was the only new product I was using at the time so it was definitely this, and the problem resolved when I quit using it. I'll keep using Cetaphil in the mornings. Too bad, I was really hoping this product would work for me. It might work for someone who doesn't have a problem with breakouts.

I tried to love this, but, after using it in the shower, my skin is still red and itchy. The only reason I gave it a 2 was because I liked the consistency and that it rinsed off well.

I got a sample of the 4-piece Redness Relief line in the mail, including this cleanser, the Soothing Night Cream, the Daily Perfecting Lotion with SPF 15, and the Redness Reducing Concealer (although I believe there are now more than 4 products in the line). I was immediately struck by the cushiony texture of this gel-based cleanser; it feels very cool and soothing immediately upon application - certainly something any skin having a rosacea flareup will appreciate. As long as you don't use more than a very small amount (it's very concentrated!), you'll find it rinses off easily with no residue. (Be sure to use cool water to enhance the calming effect!) That first time, I immediately followed with the Soothing Night Cream, and I literally broke into tears, because I had not seen my natural skin tone with no redness in years. Although I often use other cleansers depending on the immediate needs of my skin, whenever I'm having a rosacea flareup that causes pain and heat in my cheeks, I turn again and again to this cleanser in conjunction with the Soothing Night Cream for immediate relief. (N.B. I am not as found of the line's Daily Perfecting Lotion with SPF 15 or Redness Reducing Concealer; see my individual reviews on each of them for more information.) I believe that this product is best suited for those whose redness is caused by rosacea, which is most likely a vascular disorder rather than a skin disorder per se. Those with other causes of redness and irritation will probably benefit more from other cleansers more specifically suited to their conditions.

I guess in terms of cleansing this was fine, but in terms of redness relief, I actually felt that this irritated my very sensitive skin. My face had more red areas after using it than it did before. I gave it a good try, but I think I'll stick with Cetaphil, which, for me, is much more gentle.

I have combo/sensitive/acne-prone skin, and I was given a sample of this by my dermatologist. The morning after using it, I had a bunch of new whiteheads. I think this cleanser irritated my skin.

I bought the whole Eucerin Redness Relief line to try together, and I loved them all EXCEPT the cleanser. I have extremely dry, sensitive skin and was having major issues with my face due to normal issues, moving from a hot and humid climate (Florida) to one with little humidity (Oregon) and, to top it all off, pregnancy. Red, irritated, sensitive, blotchy - you name it, I had it. I tried many other things, most more expensive than this. This was a last-ditch effort, and I had originally gone to try and find the Aveeno stuff. Got the line, but had issues with this. It smelled like something that those with oily (not dry) skin would use and felt harsh to my face. I ended up putting it in a drawer and have since been using Philosophy's cleanser with the rest of the Redness Relief items.

I love this cleaner. My skin tends to be red and blotchy, due to both eczema and acne. Lucky me, I know. This cleanser is a clear yellow gel formula, cool and calming. It makes my face feel clean but not tight and dry. It does help with the redness, but I like it mainly for the gentle soothing consistency, and because its Eucerin, I know it won't irritate my sensitive skin. I use it day and night, and it does a great job at removing all of my makeup at the end of the day. I use this in conjunction with the night cream, and its a great combination. Have already repurchased.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Blond Eyes: Hazel
I have combination/acne-prone skin and I find this cleanser to be just the right amount of moisture for me. In terms of redness relief, I don't know how effective it is, but my skin-tone overall has been great since i've started using this cleanser, and it seems to regulate my oil production yet keep me moisturized enough. I find that typically gel-based cleansers are too drying, but this one seems to be perfect for my skin.
For the price I would definitely buy it again. If you wear a lot of makeup, you may find that you need to use a toner in addition to this cleanser to get it all off which is why I have it 4 lippies. All in all, this is a good, basic cleanser.

I have supersensitive, dry skin with redness on cheeks and nose. DSPW skin type, Rosacea/Allergic/Stinging subtype. Although I'm very loyal to my RoC Calmance products, I just had to give the Eucerin Redness Relief products a try. Esp. since I was able to purchase a sample kit on ebay for little money. All products contain Licochalcone, a skin soothing extract of the licorice root. They claim to provide immediate redness relief and improve the condition of visibly red skin in 4 weeks. They are safe and effective for sensitive skin and appropiate for Rosacea. They are also fragrance-free, oil-free, non-irritating and non-comedogenic. However there are some potential irritants in all of those products like Alcohol, Dimethicone, Chromium Oxide Greens, Phenoxyethanol etc. Read the listed ingredients first if you are allergic to any of these ingredients! So I've been using these products for a couple of days now and I would like to share my experiences so far with you. On this Soothing Cleanser: well, at least it didn't irritate my skin. It's a non-foaming, fragrance-free gel you have to put on your face and then rinse off with plenty of water. It cleanses really well, too well IMO. Also due to the fact you have to use a lot of water rinsing it off. I would def. not use it if you have dry/normal skin, because it is a tad drying. Even the zit I had on my chin was completely gone after using this stuff ;-) I also didn't notice any immediate redness relief. Ofcourse I cannot commend on the redness improving part, since you have to use the products for at least 4 weeks for that claim. So I won't repurchase, but I'll keep this sample size for the (rare) occasions my skin is in need of extra deep cleansing. Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol, PEG 40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, PEG 7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Decyl Glucoside, Glycyrrhiza Inflata Root Extract, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Hydroxide, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Propylparaben, Benzophenone 4.

My sister has very dry skin both on her face and body. She really enjoys both Eucerin and Aveeno products to treat her skin type. She's pale, but prone to redness and rosiness. This calms it right down and gives her the most beautiful pale, porcelain complexion while hydrating her skin without breaking it out. Good stuff!

I JUST bought this product and stupid me, didn't think to read the reviews before I dropped $60 on the soothing cleaner, perfecting lotion, night creme and tone perfecting creme. When I got home, I read some reviews and felt kind of disappointed. With my head hanging low, I kind of wandered to the bathroom to wash my face. And I was amazed! It didn't burn at all, and yeah, the gel texture was kind of weird to wash off, but I have extremely sensitive skin (if I scratch my neck I have a huge red spot a few second later) and any facial cleanser usually leaves my skin bright red. This did the exact opposite, I dried my face, looked in the mirror and the redness had disappeared a considerable amount. :D I only hope the rest of the Redness Relief line does the same.

I actually use this as a body cleanser in the shower. It moisturizes well and helps to keep my skin itch free. I have eczema and this works well for reducing redness. It doesnt break me out and doesnt bother my sensitive skin at all either. The packaging is convienient for the shower too. Wish it was a little cheaper and easier to find. Those are the only remotely bad things I have to say about it. Great shower gel!

I have been interested in trying this product ever since it hit the market, and I am so glad I finally did. I was hesitant to try it because I have severe plant allergies and I was worried about the licochalcone (an extrat from licorice root). I can't even use aloe because of my allergies. But after a year of using cetaphil, I was ready to try something else. My skin was becoming irritated and I had a lot of blotchiness. I caved and gave this a try and it has been wonderful. I have been using it for over 3 weeks now and it removes all my makeup and sunscreen. My skin is so soft but I can't really say I have scene a huge inprovement with the redness. However, I don't have as many clogged pores. I only need a little to wash my face and if I'm not careful, more than I need comes out.
UPDATE: I am still loving this but I have switched to a new sunscreen which is harder to remove and I don't feel clean with just this cleanser. I now use Jojoba oil to remove everything then follow with this cleanser.

OW! This burned the crap out of my face! I am an O/DSNW and I tried it because it was recommended for both OSNW and DSNW. I had a bunch of redness and this made it one million times worse. "But SsjAnimeGW, how do you know this was what was making your face red?" Because I switched to a *very* old favorite- Cetaphil- and the redness went completely away in like 2 days. The Eucerin cleanser for redness is not a good product for redness- it makes it worse. I have also been researching around online and apparently, there are a lot of other people who have has similar adverse reactions.

At first I thought I liked this cleanser and then two weeks went by and I started noticing that my skin looked redder than it use to. I though it was suppose to do the opposite but no, it was redder.
This product is best used without water, apply directly from the bottle to your dry face, then rinse with water. It removes all traces of makeup, including foundation, but does nothing for redness. It may actually make it worse, so beware and use with caution!!!!
