This product is a little weird and tricky to use but it gives off the best flush when applied properly.
I'm pretty fair so I lightly tap one side of my blush brush into the powder and apply, then repeat for the other cheek. It looks natural, pretty and doesn't highlight the annoying redness of my cheeks.

LOVE.
I purchased this product to cover a scar (it's thick and offers opaque coverage, FAR superior to the DermaBlend colors I tried) but it's worked really well for the redness from my rosacea, pimples and dark circles. It has this weird peachy undertone that covers everything.
HG concealer. Will definitely repurchase.

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Sodium Sulfacetamide 10% and Sulfur 5% Wash

I absolutely love this cleanser. It does contain a masking fragrance but it doesn't irritate my skin or cause my rosacea to flare. I use it at night in conjunction with a sodium sulfacetamide/sulfur lotion and while I think the lotion makes a bigger difference in the appearance of my skin, the wash is $5 (cheaper than anything I was buying at CVS) and works well.
This combination is …

I don't know why I keep buying this. Maybe because it's light? I usually go six months without using this and then think, "Hmmm. It's cheap, it didn't break me out in hives...Must've been a keeper." It burns my skin and causes my rosacea to flare. Why on earth do I use this? I'm writing a review to this product to try and remind myself that I hate it …Read more

I didn't hate this but I didn't love it enough to repurchase. It contained dye, to which I tend to be quite sensitive and it had a weird consistency. No thanks. There are plenty of drugstore cleansers that get the job done at a fraction of the cost- even with super-sensitive skin.

This product was interesting. I really felt like it was gentle enough for my rosacea skin but it broke me out. I loved the consistency but I'm not going to repurchase. I would rather have smooth, reddish skin that I can cover with this miraculous product called "foundation," (gasp!) than have less-inflamed skin and nasty papules and pustules covering my face.
Also- it was …

HG foundation.
I have extremely sensitive skin with early-onset papulo-pustular rosacea (I'm 21, it runs in my family).
I have a very minimal skincare routine to avoid irritation which includes a sodium sulfacetamide/sulfur wash and cream and Purpose SPF 15 lotion. While this has cleared my skin better than any previous treatment, I remain quite red.
I tried all the mineral …
