    I have seen this but have not tried it yet

    I have rosacea sub-type 1. When I was younger I was more of a sub-type 2, with pimples, pustules and flushed skin, earning me the nickname “Radish.” Over many years, I have tried so many facial products, many of which have been recommended by a dermatologist, and many of them expensive. I hesitated to try the Cetaphil Redness Relieving products when they first appeared on the shelves; however, before my rosacea worsened with menopause, and before I became enmeshed in the skin care product world, Cetaphil products comprised my basic, trusted skin care. I am impressed by this new line of products for rosacea skin types. The daily and nighttime moisturizers are soothing and non-irritating. The daytime moisturizer gives good, non-irritating sun protection and reduces the the appearance of redness because of the tinted zinc and titanium oxides. I appreciate most that the products do not cause stinging and worsening redness and that they are inexpensive. I live in Colorado, where wind, sun, and an ultra-dry environment requires diligence in protecting one’s skin skin, no matter what type you have. I am hoping these new products will become a mainstay in my skin care plan and it seems they will because they are very protective. I also have ocular rosacea, so using a gentle, non-chemical sunscreen is important in the prevention of eye irritation.

    Wondering if i can get this in Perth Australia…I will go searching.

    I bought it today at Walgreens (it’s cheaper online) but I didn’t want to wait for delivery as I am sure all rosacean’s feel the same way, let’s try new stuff right now! I used a very thin coating on my nose because my nose is what gets red and ruddy and pimply (I hate it). It went on like Rosacea care’s zinco cream, it’s tinted skin color no green hue’s so that’s good, was not overwhelming or too greasy and I did not notice any odor and it’s much cheaper than Rosacea Care’s stuff. Today was day one so we’ll see how my freak nose handles it after a few days. I am using so much stuff now it’s kinda ridiculous, this rosacea condition is all consuming for me to say the least, I could deal with red ears, red neck, but a red nose is f’n the worst place to have any kind of HEY LOOK AT ME I’m Rudolph kinda thing.
    I will keep posting until I get tired of things that stop working, I’m hopeful but this is still just a mask and not the root issue. I’ll take anything right now, I have started dating again well wanting and thinking of starting to date again but that’s at least a possibility where as 6 months ago it wasn’t. Like I said I am using so many different ingredients in my regime I’m afraid to upset the apple cart by eliminating anything but I have to draw the line somewhere.
    I’ll get back in a few days.
    Your Rudolph Rosacean,
    Even my name sounds redish, lol.

    • Rudolph Rob says:

      5days using cetaphil antiredness spf 20 and all is good it covers good, I use very thin coat about the size of a drop of water for my nose and blend into cheeks and that’s it. It does run if it gets wet at least when first applied. No whiteheads or p&p so far.

  5. katmacy91 says:

    I sort of want to try this cream, but am hesitant because it’s a Galderma product. They screwed me over with Mirvaso, and part of me doesn’t want to buy it just on principle. I know that’s terrible and irrational, but they really ought to be ashamed of themselves for ever putting that on the market.

  6. Kay says:

    I use the Redness Relief Daily Facial Moisturizer and mix it with a little Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer with sunscreen. It makes it easier to spread on my face and I figure it ups my sunscreen coverage a bit. I do not even use any other makeup anymore. Great product.

    • Christine Cline-Cardot says:

      I agree. I have been using the Daily Facial Moisturizer as a tinted moisturizer. It’s been very effective at keeping my skin from feeling irritated and has prevented sunburn. I apply the Redness Relieving Night Moisturizer both day and night. My skin has felt very comfortable and does not seem to flare or feel as irritated. I have been pleased to have found a soothing product that gives good protection, coverage and is available at a reasonable price. For more protection, I may add some Anthelios Dermo-Kids Sunscreen Spf 60 underneath it when I’m out hiking and biking.

  7. Carol says:

    Where can I buy this from in the UK

  8. Tammy Underwood says:

    I would like it if it did not have the tint.

  9. Comment via facebook post.

    “wow what a big difference in price! a normal cetaphil moisturising cream costs about 10pounds and this cetaphil relief moisturing cream costs 34pounds.”

    can you buy this in the uk

  11. pat says:

    David Pascoe, just wondering why you refer to Galderma in the plural: “How ‘do’ Galderma promote this new kind of product”…. “Galderma ‘are’ continuing to build…” Meanwhile, thanks for all of this very helpful information. Pat

  12. Facebook comments.

    “I’ve used this. The tint did help neutralize the redness somewhat, but it’s not the type of coverage you’d get with a thicker BB cream or foundation. Most importantly, it did not irritate my skin or cause a cystic flare-up.”

    “I have tried this and it does feel cool on my skin and didn’t make my rosacea worse, but the tint is too dark for my pale skin so it looks a little off on me.”

    “Cetaphil is already great hope this works well”

    “Sulphur soap , pine tar with need oil worked for me my rosacea has not broke out since and it’s been months”
