Review Overview

Clinical Instant Calm Advanced Redness Relief Treatment is a unique toner-like product that contains a blend of soothing anti-irritants to instantly relieve redness and calm sensitive skin.

The gentle, fragrance-free formula is brimming with potent antioxidants that diminish signs of aging. This is designed to reduce redness, on first use and over time, as soothing anti-irritants (including willow bark and the active components of green tea) play a prominent role.

Clinical Instant Calm Advanced Redness Relief is recommended for anyone struggling with mild to moderate skin redness caused by inflammation on the face or body, especially for those with rosacea or sensitive, easily irritated skin.

This also works to calm skin after shaving or other types of hair removal, razor burn, and even insect bites. In addition, it can reduce the redness that accompanies acne and sunburn. Keep calm, and put this Advanced Redness Relief Treatment on!

Brand Overview

Paula's Choice Skincare At-A-Glance

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products. Like most of us, she was fed up with products that overpromised results, cost a lot of money, and failed to deliver—or made matters worse!

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable. From acne to wrinkles, oily skin, rosacea, large pores, eczema, redness, dry skin, and on and on, Paula's Choice offers a solution.

Paula's Choice Skincare stands apart from other cosmetics brands. The formulas contain only ingredients that have substantiated, published research showing they are beneficial and effective—so you get visible results. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down. The line is also 100% fragrance-free, which is best for all skin types, especially for those with sensitive skin or rosacea.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is the creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Why are all Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedia's criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.

Strengths: All products are fragrance-free; uniquely formulated AHA and BHA products; effective skin-lightening options; toners that go beyond the norm; all sunscreens provide broad spectrum protection; proven anti-acne products; antioxidant-rich serums and moisturizers; anti-aging products that work as claimed.

Weaknesses: Does not offer a complete collection of makeup; makeup shade range isn’t as extensive for darker skin tones; limited concealer options.

Not Just for Rosacia

I don't have rosacia or eczema, but I found this product to be great for soothing skin when it has a reaction to multiple causes of irritation, like shaving or over-exfoliation. It feels like you are applying plain water to your face, but it actually calms down red and/or irritated skin within a few minutes. Very impressed.

a must have for everyone

This is a must have for everyone, not just those with specific problems like eczema or rosacia. I originally purchased for the irritation I had when first using PC clinical 1% retinol but have used it often for other minor irritation and burns. It instantly soothes and calms irritation or stinging. I use it either after toner or instead of. PC used to have a product called Skin Relief Treatment that I also loved, this is different but equally good. A must have staple for everyone who has skin!!
