    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.

    Nice!
    • 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.

    Amazing for Rosacea
    • I guess this product doesn’t work for everyone based on the reviews here, but for me this was the best money I have ever spent. The liquid dispenses just like a toner or the 2% BHA liquid and I just dab it on my extremely red cheeks in the morning after toner and before the BHA. By the time the whole process is done and I’m ready to leave the house, my cheeks don’t look like I have cherries sitting on them! I will never be low on this one.

    Mild improvement
    • Texture a little thicker than water. Applies smoothly, feels a bit tacky until it dries. Has a shiny finish, but feels dry to the touch. Skin feels a little warm at first. Skin appears slightly less pink, but you can feel that something is on it.

    Perfectly soothing
    • I was foolish to apply a mild retinoid cream around my eye area. Next morning it was extremely irritated and painful. The only thing that helped is Clinical Instant Calm treatment- I tried to apply creams for super sensitive skin to soothe it and they would sting badly while my skin loved the treatment. I also use it on those days when my rosacea flares up- I apply it several times a day and see the difference.

    Slight stinging sensation
    • Received a sample and was disappointed to discover that the product irritates rather than soothes. It's not a really bad sting, and it goes away quickly, but it's enough to make me think this is doing the opposite of it's intended purpose.

    Amazing after laser treatment
    • After a first-time laser treatment on my face and chest, I gingerly applied this to my fiery-red face while still in the doctor's office (but didn't do my chest at the time). That evening, I again used this product. The result? The next morning my face is back to its normal colour while my chest still looks sunburnt. What a difference this product made for me!

    Good for so many things!
    • I love this toner. It is perfect for so many skin problems. Perfect for sunburns (no matter how hard I work to keep up with my sunscreen I get them because my skin is so pale), razor burn, wind burn, etc. I also recently developed an allergy to on of my products. I reduced my routine to cleansing and this and my skin did not break out or dry out. I will always keep a bottle of this handy even though I don't have to use it every day.

    Not for me
    • I bought this product to help with redness and mild rosacea but after using it the product seemed to cause more redness. This isn't a product I use everyday so I wanted to give it a fair shot so I've used it here and there over last two months or so. Experienced the same results every time. Just one of those products that doesn't work with my face chemistry but it has so many good reviews I'd still suggest it to people with redness.

    Love this product
    • I am not sure how it works, but this product completely made my hormonal acne disappear at my jawline and is working on reducing past acne scarring. No PC Salicylic Acid product worked at all for me, so I tried this one and I will not be without it. Thank you Paula.

    First Aid for Irritated Skin
    • I was a devotee of the original PC "aspirin toner" skin calming product. This is completely, different, but I do find it very effective on hives and when my face is irritated from exfoliation or dryness. I don't use it regularly--only as first aid after the Skin Recovery Cleanser. It does leave a film, which I do not find bothersome, as I follow with a barrier repair moisturizer. Wouldn't go on vacation without it, because when I need it, it really works.

    Best Stuff Ever !!!
    • I LOVE IT!!! The skin on my face is very sensitive & fair & stays red on my cheekbones, my whole nose & around my nose really bad. I have a drawer full of concealers & toners that said it would take the red away but didn't. This stuff is amazing honestly! I use it morning & night on freshly cleansed skin & before my moisturizers & within 15 mins ALL traces of red are gone & it last all day. For the 1st time I'm not embarrassed about my skin. Thank you so very much!!!

    Did NOT work for my Rosacea
    • I have rosacea and when I use this product my skin gets slightly redder and tighter. I wanted it to just lessen the redness and did not expect a "cure". I will keep it around for family members to use after shaving or for other skin irritations.

    My favorite
    • This is absolutely my favorite PC product! As I am going through the ever-changing, always-surprising years of perimenopause, one of my hormonally-induced symptoms is painful red patches on my face. They come and they go. No other product came even close to bringing relief, but Clinical Instant Calm Advanced Redness Relief subdues and relieves the redness beautifully! I now have a sure fire weapon with which to combat this irritating problem. I can't thank you enough for this valuable product!

    Very Happy With This
    • I am very happy with this product and am ordering my second bottle today. I use it daily and extra times during the day when my cheeks start to burn. It takes the heat and pain right away. As I think of it, I have far few episodes like this since I have started using this toner. It won't work miracles. It temporarily relieves the redness of the skin, but redness does come back. No one has figured out how to cure rosacea yet, but in the meantime this product is great for calming the skin!

    • Comforts our 5yr old red headed sensitive skin as well as a God send for my husband who's skin is badly sensitive after a severe stroke. As said, we don't leave home without it. Wonder on bug bites, razor burn as noted. Nothing on the market like it!

    • I love this toner, but would really like to see new packaging. Something more sleek. I am a sucker for that and for some reason ( I am sure you have research on it) feel more glamorous when using a product with lovely packaging. Does anyone else agree?

    Doesn't burn, favorite toner
    • Although I do have redness I did not buy this because it is supposed to relieve redness. I tried it because I was looking for a toner that didn't irritate my skin and this is the first PC toner that has worked for me. I've tried the Hydralight & Skin Balancing toners and I had a slight burning sensation after using them. I'm not sure what was in them that my skin didn't like but it's not in the Clinical toner. My skin feels good after using it. I'm glad PC tries new formulations.

    What a relief!
    • I don't use this everyday, but on days my skin is angry n revolting. It seems to calm it down very well. However I realised the extent of its effectiveness on the day, my hubby had a nasty allergic reaction for some reason on his neck, he was going mad with itching, I tried everything I could to bring some relief, but in vain. Then I put some of this on .. It was such a relief. He went to sleep with the bottle by his bedside:)

    Best Summertime Relief!!
    • Maybe this product wasn't't designed for this, but it is the BEST relief I've ever had for the swelling and welts of mosquito bites! I have to apply it only once per bite to get almost immediate relief. I am the person in a crowd that the little buggers go for, and the itching is intense. Sometimes I've even had an infection in the scratched site. But no more, thanks to Clinical Instant Calm Relief. I can't say enough good about this product!
