– This is NOT a sponsored post and I have received no compensation from the brand mentioned. All of the products were purchased with my own money and tested on my face. I allow my skin to completely heal before trying any new rosacea skin care product. This review is 100% honest and based on my personal experience with each product line. As everyone’s skin is unique yours may react differently and individual results will vary. –
My quest for an effective rosacea skin care line has led me to try over the beauty counter anti-redness products and all-natural redness preventing formulations, unfortunately none of those lotions and potions were successful at calming my little rosacea cheeks.
Let’s take a look at the before and after results for my latest Rosacea Reviews: Rodan + Fields Soothe Regimen:
The Soothe regimen from Rodan + Fields claims to soothe sensitive skin and maintain a healthy-looking, even-toned complexion as well as neutralize sensitivity triggers at the skin’s surface and reduce dry, cracked, chapped skin and visible signs of redness. I was pretty darn impressed with my initial results with this product line, although it didn’t appear to reduce my redness drastically (& did absolutely nothing for the flushing that accompanies rosacea), it really did seem to keep those pesky pustules away. Hooray!
Unfortunately at $196 Cdn ($225 with shipping) the Soothe regimen from Rodan + Fields is prohibitively expensive and the moderately positive results are simply not worth the cost – especially when this happened:
After more than a few successful weeks of use the itchy redness and those pesky pustules returned with a vengeance and I was back to using the gentle rosacea skin care routine I brought along from Germany.
My quest for an effective treatment for rosacea now continues with a recent prescription for Metrogel 1% (metronidazole gel) – fingers & toes crossed!
Until the next round of my Rosacea Reviews take a peek at my Living with Rosacea category and learn what happened when lasers met my face, discover how I successfully cover a breakout as well as my gentle rosacea make-up removing routine.
