I started by doing a lot of research on redness reducing skin products. Ultimately, I decided to try Clinique. I chose Clinique because of the price as well as the number of positive reviews.
I ordered my kit from Ulta. It comes with a face wash, moisturizer, and a primer.
The face wash is super gentle. If you wear makeup I am not sure it would remove it. I almost never wear makeup so this is not a problem for me.
The moisturizer has a thicker texture than most that I have ever used. I was worried that it was going to leave my face greasy, but I was pleasantly surprised. I have been applying it am and pm and have had no problems.
The primer has a green tint to help correct redness and prime your face for applying makeup. I only wear makeup if I am going to a special event or have an interview, so I am not sure how much use I will get out of this product.
After the first week of religiously applying these products twice a day as recommend, I have seen no improvement.
I am starting to really doubt this product works. After two weeks my face does not look any less red than before.
After three weeks, I am finally able to see a real difference in my skin. Not only is my face less red, but it has a better texture.
After a month of using the product I am sold. I have had a significant reduction in the redness of my skin.
I was very skeptical of this working since I have had no luck in the past. While there has been a great reduction in the redness of my skin, I do have some redness from acne marks and scars. In order to combat the permanent redness from these scars, I need to incorporate more exfoliation, a Vitamin C product, and a sunscreen for my face.
Here are some additional products to help reduce redness that I have tried or have considered trying.
