Sunscreen - Alba Botanica - Alba Very Emollient Sunscreen SPF 20

Apr/25/2016

I couldn't find this exact sunscreen in the database (mineral facial SPF 20 in the green tube). A friend of mine gave hers to me as it caused her eczema to worsen. I'm on a quest for a sunscreen that doesn't cause breakouts or milia, so I said what the hey! When I first opened the package, I really disliked the smell. It's supposed to be fragrance free but it smelled like …Read more

Sunscreen - Kiss My Face - Face Factor SPF30 Sunscreen

4.0

Apr/24/2016

I really wanted to love this. It was perfect in almost every way. The texture was very light, so easy to apply and blend in. It didn't leave any kind of white cast, or cause physical irritation. Unfortunately, after about a week, I developed several milia. I waited a month, tried it again, and sure enough, more milia appeared. Definitely won't repurchase, although I wish I could.

Sunscreen - Banana Boat - Natural Reflect Baby

Apr/24/2016

My skin is quite sensitive to products, especially sunscreen, and this product gave me hope. When I first put on Banana Boat Natural Reflect Baby SPF 50, I was fairly pleased. It didn't burn, sting, or otherwise irritate my sensitive skin. It had a bit of a white cast that actually did a good job of covering up my redness from sun exposure and mild rosacea. It was thick, pasty, and hard to …Read more

Apr/24/2016

After trying out several so-called gentle face washes on my skin (dry, sensitive, acne prone, signs of rosacea), I had terrible breakouts and irritated skin. I took a break from using anything on my face but water for 2 weeks, then began using Desert Essence jojoba oil as a light moisturizer after washing my face with tepid water. After another two weeks, I noticed I had NO breakouts. I was …Read more

Cleansers - CeraVe - Hydrating Cleanser

2.0

Mar/08/2016

I thought I would give this a shot after reading it was good for rosacea. My skin is dry, sensitive, and acne prone. This face wash had a nice texture, and rinsed off well, although it did not leave my skin feeling hydrated at all. I also noticed a lot of clogged pores after using this product. It also does not remove makeup at all. I used this product for a month, and returned it today.

Mar/05/2016

I so wanted to love this moisturizer, based on all the glowing reviews. For background, I'm fair, 37, with dry, sensitive skin showing signs of rosacea (redness, flushing on cheeks and nose). I bought this moisturizer to try after reading that it was great for sensitive skin. I did a patch test on my neck and didn't notice any irritation. Then I used the moisturizer on my face for two …Read more

Sunscreen - Eucerin - Everyday Protection Face Lotion - Broad Spectrum SPF 30

1.0

Feb/27/2016

For background, I'm fair, 37, with dry, sensitive skin showing signs of rosacea (redness, flushing on cheeks and nose). I read that use of sunscreen daily is very important for those with rosacea, so I thought I would give this a try. I have a pretty poor track record with sunscreen (burns, breaks me out, or causes milia), so I cautiously tried this Eucerin sunscreen. The sunscreen was …Read more

Feb/11/2016

I really wanted to like this cleanser after reading several good reviews. I have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin that is showing signs of rosacea (flushing mans redness on cheeks). The cleanser is very creamy, a little bit goes a long way. After washing, I noticed a film was left behind. At first, I was pleased with the wash as my face looked much less red, and the skin looked more hydrated …Read more

On a hopeful quest for a gentle, rosacea friendly face cleanser, I decided to try the Aveeno Ultra-Calming Foaming Face Wash. For background, I'm fair, 37, with dry, sensitive skin showing signs of rosacea (redness, flushing on cheeks and nose). I decided to try the ultra-calming wash based on positive comments on Reddit. I tested the product on my wrist and neck before washing my face with …Read more
