Anti-Redness Cream by Roc – Does it work?

I have had quite a bit of redness going on this Winter. Thanks to some breakouts and the harsh weather I have had a red chin for months. I have always been dubious about anti-redness products but I decided to try Roc Calmance Intolerence Repairing Cream which claims to reduce redness and irritation.

I choose this one because 83% of testers on Make-up Alley said they would repurchase. That being said there were differences in opinion – some people broke out horresndously whilst some mentioned it cleared their skin. I have had no breakouts, as of yet. Just to be thorough I should mention that my breakouts also haven’t improved. I tell you this only so that you are aware of the limitations of an anti-redness cream.

It’s also quite cheap and non-greasy (not one for oily skin though as it’s very moisturising). Very often when I apply creams loaded with lab chemicals my skin gets irritated and stings. This cream soothed my skin and reduced redness.

It’s not green like you would expect, instead it’s a very pale yellow colour which helps correct a ruddy complexion. Personally I hate using greeen correctors on redness – unless you have the know how to correct the green after the green corrects the red, you’ll just look odd. A hint of Wicked Witch of the West is not a look we’re going for.

It’s also preservative free and contains a fragrance specifically developed for sensitive skin,

Roc claim that this cream reinforces the skin’s natural defenses against irritant factors to reduce its hyper-sensitivity progressively. I can’t vouch for this yet as I have only been using the cream for three weeks but I will keep you updated on my progress.

It’s also quite good as a make-up base, but not if you’re oily. I should also point out that f you have very dry or dehydrated skin you will need to moisturise further. Some people mentioned that they hate the smell, I have to say that it doesn’t bother me at all.

I bought a 100ml tube for £6.99 from Amazon and had it posted to Ireland. I have also seen Roc products in chemists all around Ireland.

    Hey! I have been using Dr. Brandt’s anti-irritating and soothing moisturizer and I love it. I’ve had cystic acne for the two years and its in the last stages where I still have a lot of redness but no more acne. After using the moisturizer for less than a month, my redness went away and my skin looks clearer. I have very sensitive skin too and this worked so well! I would definitely recommend but it is a bit pricey.

    Hi! I’ve been using this product for a year now. And I really love it for redness. Even though I have super oily/acne prone skin, it is also very sensitive, so this product has been the only one proving to be effective as far as redness goes and not causing any breakouts, so I apply it each other day or in the evening and let it do its job while watching Dazzledust25 on YT!! :0)
