    Wonderful!
    • I struggle with rosacea constantly, and this is the first product I've used where I could see a difference immediately. My skin is very sensitive to most products, but this one began reducing my redness from the first application. I use it every morning, followed by the Hyrdalight moisturizer and my skin is looking better than ever. Thank you!

    Works great on my hormonal hives!
    • My hormones sometimes cause me to get huge thumbnail-sized hives on my face and arms. They itch like CRAZY, even if I don't touch them. Taking Benadryl helps but makes me a zombie. So on a whim I decided to try this product. Well IT WORKS. The second I feel a hive coming up, I swipe this on it. The itching stops immediately. It doesn't swell up. Most of the time, it just disappears. I'm going to start using this preventatively every day and see how that works. THANK YOU PAULA!!!

    A lifesaver since my eczema diagnosis!
    • After having skin that was so oily that it would pool in the sides of my nose it was baffling to me to develop eczema and dry skin. While I am still not back to normal (thought I was, not yet bah!) this product has helped every time I have a flare up. I will likely begin using this product on a daily basis over my beloved Hydralight toner. My only qualm is that it is not safe to spread over the eyelids. I hope it helps with the dryness that comes along with exfoliation.

    Works best as a serum..
    • This works best when applied as a serum directly to skin vs. with a cotton pad like a toner. The cotton soaks it all up, and it is way more effective when applied directly to red areas. That being said, it works when I have redness from amping up the topical actives, but I feel it could have even more soothing agents. I can't speak to how well it will work for rosacea.

    Doesn't work
    • It's a mark of how desperate I am that I actually thought/hoped this would work. You might as well rub tap water on your red skin. No effect whatsoever. The only Paula's Choice product I tried that had zero impact.

    Rebound Redness
    • I have dry, mature, rosacea prone skin. Although I keep my rosacea well controlled, I can always use help reducing redness. Unfortunately, this product didn't work as I had hoped. The first few times I used it, it did take the redness down quite a bit, but after a few days of using it, I started getting rebound redness that was worse than what I had originally started out with. I'll save this for after tweezing, but won't repurchase. I get better redness relief from other products.

    Helps with Psoriasis, too!
    • My poor sis and her psoriasis--has it bad around her nose. Gave her my sample to see if it would help, a few days later she urgently asked me to order a full size for her. I saw her nose area was lookin' great. Doesn't specify "psoriasis" as to what this helps, but it did indeed help my sis. I ordered a full size, & gave her some of my Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask to get her through til the order is in. (Eventually, I'm going to get her on more of PC. Then her skin be good as mine! )

    Great product
    • I have very fair skin with red patches around my nose and chin. I hated using a ton of concealer to cover it. (Didn't really work anyway) I started using Instant Calm after my BHA liquid and have seen a difference. I use less foundation, less concealer, and less powder.

    Want More in this Product Line!!
    • While I've always protected my face from the sun, I wasn't so diligent with my neck & chest. Now at 59, I'm seeing the effects of sun damage - red, rough, sensitive skin on my neck & chest. This product is AMAZING as a toner in reducing the redness...in about 30 seconds. However, as soon as I add the next layer of product - serum in the p.m. or moisturizer in the a.m., the redness returns. Can you please add a serum and moisturizer to this product line with the same anti-redness ingredients?

    A Worthy Splurge
    • This is the swiss army knife of products - versatile, effective, and I'd want it with me on a desert island. It is amazing as an after-shave, even in the most sensitive areas, and a little swipe eradicates redness and those tiny razor bumps. My skin is acne-prone, and when I ran out of my usual facial toner I used this and my skin felt moisturized and healthy. I was healing from a hormonal breakout, it didn't seem to irritate and may have even helped me heal faster. Truly a quality product!

    A Very Important Step!
    • I did not buy this for the redness relief, but because it says it helps reduce acne. I went a few weeks without using any toner at all and was breaking out terribly (even while using cleanser, BHA, retinol, and bp!) and it wasn't until I began using this toner that my skin is nearly perfectly pristine again! If you're breaking out and don't know why, (especially if wearing makeup!), YOU NEED TO USE A TONER! I had no idea how important this step was until now!

    Good toner alternative
    • I don't have rosacea so i can't speak to that but I got it because I felt like I needed a little more moisture in the winter for my combo skin and it definitely provides that without having to put on extra emollient moisturizers. It also does sooth razor burn, which I get almost every time I shave. I didnt have it make acne blemishes less reddened though as some others stated below, but it didn't irritate them. I like this product all-in-all

    Apology
    • Did not work for me. Return was late in getting processed and I did get unjustly angry with the company. Ultimately found out it was a post office delay in getting package to them...Once returned, refund was immediately processed...Product did not work for me, but their Customer Service remains a 5 star! My sincere apology for thinking it was being held by your Company and not realizing problem was with Post Office. Thank you.

    Didn't work for me.
    • Sorry, this made my inflamed areas redder. To prove it, I try it on parts that are fine, and they soon turn bright pink. I think my skin might be allergic to Willow Bark (although I can't be sure, but it's reacted to some other things that had willow bark in them). Too bad it's in so many products supposed to 'soothe' skin. And I wanted to try the sea whip and other things.

    Good as a Toner But Not Sure of Its Claim
    • I like this product a lot as a toner. Since beta glucan is a polysaccharide, it definitely has some moisturizing effect. It works great for my oily and acnegenic skin, and as an aftershave or after chemical peeling. Although it does not reduce redness or sooth inflammatory acne instantly as claimed, I definitely can see anti-redness/anti inflammatory results with long term use.

    ROSACEA SUFFERERS READ THIS
    • Works better than Oracea, Metronidazole. Mix about 8 drops in your palm w/ a dab of moisturizer & apply to all Rosacea-affected areas AM & PM. I then dab a little extra on every red spot on my face, rubbing it in, sometimes reapplying to active spots 1-2 X during the day. This will cause spewing pores and welts of congruent spewing pores to calm down & disappear, sometimes within a few hours, sometimes within 3-4 days. Much better than the 10-14 days my angry welts usually take. Reduces peeling

    Not what I expected :(
    • I really wanted this to become a holy grail product for me but it fell short. I have had it for a few months and have been using consistently but no changes to my skin have occurred. I have mild rosacea and while this didn't make it worse, it definitely didn't help it either.

    • I had really high hopes for this product after reading the glowing reviews since I have rosacea and sensitive skin that reddens at the slighted provocation. Very disappointed with this one; after using it in various situations it did absolutely nothing. All the other PC products deliver but unfortunately this one does not work for me.

    • I ordered this hoping it would calm down the redness and irritation from my acne before I put my makeup on. I am sorry to say that it makes my blemishes and scars redder. Not only that, it smells like urine. I know PC is against fragrance, but there's got to be something you can do! I used it in the mornings for a week with no improvement. Just not the right product for me. Thanks are required to Paula for helping me figure out what was making my skin worse via Beautypedia!

    • I'd been using samples of this for awhile: after using 1% retinol, weekly aha, when bha 9 caused irratation around my nose, after shaving...I realized I'd been using this every day so I had to order the full size. I used it after waxing my legs too and it seemed to work right away.

    So calming!
    • This product saved me! I applied an eye cream, because my eyelids felt dry. Immediately, my eye area started burning. Right after washing off the painful eye cream, I applied the Advanced Redness Relief, and the burning stopped. My entire eye area calmed right down, and all the burning and irritation ended. I opted for a tiny dab of a PC serum around my eyes to take care of the dryness and will never use that eye cream again. I am so glad I had this product on hand to save me!
