My skin has a red to it that I can't seem to go to go away. It is persistently red and get worse when I eat certain trigger foods like tomatoes.
I did a lot of research on redness reducing skin products and decided to try Clinique. The other brands I was looking at were Origins and Kate Somerville. I chose Clinique because of the price as well as the number of positive reviews.
I ordered my kit from Sephora for $51. As you can see it comes with three products. A face wash, moisturizer, and a primer.
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.
Week 1: I have been religiously applying these products twice a day as recommended. I have seen no improvement in the redness.
Week 2: Hmm, I think my face might be getting even redder.
Week 3: The magic has happened! My face is significantly less red.
I was very skeptical of this working since I have had no luck in the past. I am very happy that my redness has gone down. I do still have redness from acne marks and I want to try and reduce that redness.
I am going to incorporate some gentle exfoliation and maybe a product with Vitamin C in it.
