Skincare: Clinique Redness Solutions Review

Skincare: Clinique Redness Solutions Review

I have told you before about my very sensitive skin. I cannot use just any product, my skin brakes out in hives and turns all red whenever I use products that don´t suit my skin type.  Recently I have also noticed that I have developed rosacea , basically red patches on my face… GREAT!!!

Well a friend told me about the Clinique Redness Solutions line and I was very keen to try it out.

I have been using the products for little over a week now and I can already see a HUGE difference. I am going to take you through the products that I have been using.

Every evening I start by cleansing my face with the Soothing Cleanser. Actually I had to get used to the routine as I admit I can get quite lazy when it comes taking my makeup off in the evening … I know I know , not a good thing especially when it comes to sensitive skin. This cleanser is really smooth and gentle on the skin, I don´t wear waterproof mascara so this cleanser removes all my makeup with ease,  but if you do, you might need to use a special eye-makeup remover.

Next I apply the moisturizer. My skin absolutely loves this moisturizer, it drinks in all the moisture and is something that I highly recommend both for summer and winter, it doesn’t leave my skin greasy at all. I apply it both evening and morning.  If I have time, I like to let the moisturizer dry into the skin just a little, before I apply my primer. The primer has a green tint to it set out to correct the color of the skin and smooth it all out, giving it a nice finish.

I must admit, I had a little bit of a difficulty figuring out how to use this product. My foundation covers all the excess redness that I have after I have applied the primer but after doing some research I figured out that this compressed powder is to cover all excess redness that you might have.  During the day , the makeup might loose its complete cover and then this little powder comes in handy. I apply it during the day to touch up my makeup which works wonders.

Conclusion: The Redness Relief line contains calming ingredients that helps calm the skin and reduce redness over time and I recommend you give it a few weeks before seeing significant results. For me I noticed it after a few days but it may depend on the severity of your rosacea. I would highly recommend you trying it if you are looking for a product line to calm your skin.  It worked wonders for me !!
