    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.

    Love this product !
    • I searched and searched for something to help me with my red face. I have been using this toner for a couple years now and I just love it!! It calms my face down and gets better with time. I highly recommend this for people who suffer with redness, you might just to have to give it time!

    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.

    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.

    • 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.
