i was complaining to a friend how much i hate wearing foundation but find that now i have to because of my dark circles and the mild rosacea that i now have on my cheeks. she recommended this product and i ran out immediately to get it. i used it once and already i am sold. was my redness gone? no, but it was seriously toned down. same with the circles. all i needed was some concealer under my eyes and a little powder and my skin looked better than it had in a long time. and the stuff stayed on. i've read some of the negative reviews and i'm wondering if maybe it doesn't work as well on oily skin.
