    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.

    Not for me
    • 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.

    Not 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!

    Loved the samples had to buy full size!
    • 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.

    Better not.
    • Unfortunately, after every use I find my face becomes redder, exactly the opposite result from the claims! Also a burning sensation soon follows. Was hoping this would help but only made the situation worse. Regret purchasing this.

    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!

    Perfect for after a peel.
    • I am loving this product for after when I do my facial peels or a scrub. It really does calm and soothe my skin. I can see the redness go down. Love the soft feel of it. I have been using the samples, I will be ordering the full size.

    Works great for my skin allergies
    • I am allergic to my dog's saliva so when she licks my face and neck, my skin immediately becomes itchy and I can't stop scratching. Cleansing my skin doesn't help enough. Upon recommendation, I tried the Instant Calm Advanced Redness Relief and it works right away. The solution calms my skin down, makes it stop itching and returns it to normal. I wish I knew about this product sooner!

    Oh MY!
    • Oh My Yesssssssssss! I bought this to deal with post retinol irritation but discovered it also increases the hydration in my skin in this dry winter air. So much so, that at times my skin looks and feels dewy! I'm guessing that this is due to oat beta glucan. Now I'm using this product regularly in my routine and have even turned my husband onto it. In the am and pm after the BHA or toner I apply this and then the rest of PC skin care. I am so grateful to have all these wonderful products!!

    I love this
    • I LOVE this product! My rosacea has been slowly getting worse and my skin has become extremely, extremely sensitive. This product delivers in every department including the price!! For the first time in years I now have smooth skin and the redness has been reduced dramatically. The somewhat "unpleasant" aroma is no big deal and assures me that there is nothing in this product that will negatively impact my skin. Because of the success I just purchased the rosacea skincare regime package. THX!

    Wanted to love it
    • I was really looking forward to using this product! Unfortunately, I did not notice any redness relief- on the contrary, my face gets redder right after I apply it! I was hoping for a qumilative effect, but after a few weeks of daily use there's no effect. To be fair, the texture is nice and the liquid absorbed quickly. The scent is very subtle. I am looking forward to the next effective redness relief!

    Versatile, effective and a bargain.
    • I used to use a similar product from another brand, which I loved, but it turned out to be very expensive, since it was less than 2 ounces and I went through it quickly. This product has the exact same calming, soothing, redness-erasing abilities, but is twice the size for less than half the price. Plus, the thin silky texture lends itself to a higher versatility, such as using it on my lips if that's what's bugging me. DEFINITELY one of those products I use every day and recommend.

    Great temporary solution
    • About 16 months ago, I was badly butchered by an ablative laser procedure under my eyes, Now, I am undergoing biweekly PDL treatments to try to remove the extreme redness left by the ablative procedure over a year ago. The redness is always worse after any cleansing/touching but a few drops of this on the tips of my fingers calms the redness down (it never goes away, but I can't expect that of anything at this point). To me, this is as close to a miracle as I can get without a permanent fix!

    Another fail
    • I have been on the search for calming products for my extra sensitive red skin. I got a sample size of this stuff and applied it by itself with a cotton pad just like they said to. Immediately I noticed my skin felt a little tight and then after a couple minutes my pink skin turned to red and stayed red for awhile. I'm pretty sure my skin hates this stuff as it reacted by turning so red so fast. Would definitely not recommend for sensitive skin friends.

    Wonderful Sample!
    • I received a sample of this with my order of the two week trial of the regular strength acne kit (which is wonderful) and had been saving it for a time that I needed it. Tonight my skin went from lobster red due to using a different Clarisonic brush head and this brought the redness down by quite a bit. My skin isn't as calm as it was before the brush incident, but it's a million times better than it was.

    It works!
    • Many years ago, I noticed my face going red after a shower. What started off as 5 minutes of redness over the years became 15, until recently it stays red for up to an hour after every shower. Within 10 days of incorporating this stuff into my morning and evening skin care regimen, my post-shower redness is reduced by at least 90% and it fades much faster. It seems to work cumulatively (on me at least) - I didn't notice anything the first day I applied to my inflamed face.

    • Really nice, and soothing. I purchased this for healed acne red marks though, and it doesn't seem to have done very much. If that is what you're looking for, I'd suggest the Clear BHA Extra Strength instead.

    Great but smells weird
    • I use this as a 'splash' on my legs every time I shave, and it is definitely soothing. A wonderful product, and I also wipe it on my face as a toner when I feel irritation from over-exfoliating, as it always calms down redness or burning. However, I will say this: while I usually like PC products' non-fragrance scents, the scent of this toner is truly disgusting. When it is on my face I can't wait for it to pass. Smells like rot to me. Hope they can do something about this down the line.
