Hi,

Does anybody know of any good anti-redness creams that really works? There are so many products on the market and I have read reviews on a few namely Eucerin, No7 etc and found out they are not really effective in clearing facial redness.

Does anyone use a redness relief cream that really works? Please let me know as I suffer from redness on my cheeks , nose and chin.

Thanks.

Hi, I have the same redness on my cheeks, nose and chin. Eucerin did not work for me and the Clinique anti redness did not work either. So, I haven't found anything to tone down the redness yet.

Thanks for replying, Annette. Have you tried any concealer or make up that helps you hide the redness? I heard green concealers are good in neutralising facial redness but I haven't tried it yet. Have you?

Yes, I have tried several of the "green" color primers and they just didn't give me the coverage that regular makeup up gives. It is difficult to find a makeup that will give adequate coverage without being too heavy. So, I'm on a quest to find something that isn't too expensive.

So far, Signature Club A butters makeup sold on a TV shopping site works the best for me, but you have to apply very lightly so it doesn't look thick and a moisturizer prior to makeup helps and sometimes I use a damp makeup sponge.

Everyone's skin is so different isn't it...

Yes, I agree everyone's skin is so different. One product may work for someone but not for you. It is only after you've tried the product yourself then you can either tell whether it's good or not. hmmm. I will keep looking too for something that really works and hopefully not too costly

Cheers.

Go to your doctor and ask for Metrogel.
Hi Freddy,
Thanks for replying. Is metrogel an anti-redness gel? Can I not buy it over the counter or is it on prescription only?

Metrogel was a product prescribed for the "red bumps" scalp. It didn't do anything for the condition. I use Aloette products occasionally and they have a Redness Reduction Cream, (I think there's a calming cream as well). Their products are based on aloe vera and contain other botanicals, latest peptides, etc. I've used one of these creams some month's ago on a rash on my arm and it went away, was it the cream or natural healing -- I don't know but it's worth a try.

I've developed a facial condition that is almost like hives and quite red. I asked at the health food store if they had any products for facial redness and it was suggested I try a natural product from DermaMed called rosaderme. I applied it to one area a couple day's ago and it seems to be effective. It's quite inexpensive, it is made by a pharmaceutical company and supposedly promotes healthy celluar regeneration.

Rosaderme! Sounds great! Is it working for you? Someone told me that Seabuckthorn oil works for skin redness caused by Retin-A. Don't know if that would help with rosacea too, but it's available online at www.gardenofwisdom.com and other online sites.
It seems to be working on whatever it is I have, the redness after 3 days is just barely pink; the bumps have gone down but haven't disappeared. Definitely better results with this product -- which is also very soothing -- than with the prescription meds. When I asked the customer service advisor about any products they may have several other women crowded around saying their meds weren't working either. They all bought the cream, and there wasn't enough to go around for others who wanted it that day.


I've been looking at various medical sites to try to identify the condition and what had me worried was a picture of a man with similar red marks, some were identified as pre-cancerous.

Hi Pumi, look up the web site for Rosaderme DermaMed.com - Natural Skin Care
and Aloette has some good information for their Redness Reduction Cream on their site Aloette Cosmetics :: Anti-Aging Skin Care, Moisturizers, Cleansers, Makeup, Spa Products & More. I usually check out the ingredients to see if there's anything in the product I know my skin won't tolerate. I bought Rosaderme because it was recommended by someone I trust and it was not expensive at all. Good luck.

I have Rosacea and have been using Replenix CF cream with great results. This cream contains caffeine which is a highly effective anti-inflammatory and constricts veins to minimize facial flushing. My face is FINALLY red free. :)

There is no cure for Rosacea, just a very few creams and laser treatments to keep the capillaries at bay. I have the same issue. Metrogel is useless.

I had my first laser treatment last Saturday, see a big diff already, have 2 more left :)
