Kalme range

Postby jenny » Fri Jul 29, 2011 11:11 am

I have just read a very interesting article in Women magazine, involving a lady who had tried the Kalme range http://www.skinshop.co.uk, to control flare ups with her Rosacea. She appears to have had success, so I checked out the website. The products in the calm range include cleanser, moisturiser (day & night) and foundation for red skin. Prices are pretty good for the starter pack. Tempted to give them a try as ingrediants appear natural and the day moisturiser contains zinc which I have read on here helps. Anyone else tried Kalme products? (thinking)

A few people have posted about this :) Using the search feature, top-right, I found a few threads. Here are two:

Thanks Cathy, I tried the Kalme range, the cleanser, day/night moisturiser, made me pink and itchy so sending back for a refund. The tinted moisturiser helps though, I wear it as a base under my usual foundation Maybelline dream satin liquid in Ivory. It smoothes out the dry areas on my face and keeps me moisturised all day, with no reaction :)

At least one product worked out well :)

Its working I am now just using a gentle cleanser, Simple Intensive Care Lotion, followed by factor 50 suncream and then Kalme moisturiser and my antibiotic twice a day and my skin feels great, the pimples are greatly reduced, the skin is calm and well moisturised (yahoo), I am beginning to feel like the old me :0)

I bought 3 of these products last week and at the moment I'm not too impressed.

I've found that these products leave my skin quite dry and flaky. By the end of the day I can clearly see dead skin cells on my nose, cheeks and forehead. Definitely not what I was hoping for. Especially after £40 spent.

The redness has neither improved or deteriorated, This just hasn't moisturised my skin like I'd have hoped.

I'm aware that everyones condition is different and will react differently to products. So this shouldn't put anybody off trying it. I am just sharing my experience so far.

Thank you for sharing. So beyond frustrating that one person's success does not help another.
For example in my case I tried finacea, many people have great success with it, but for me it made my skin worse-go figure!
Take care

It is interesting that the Daily Mail is still, in 2018 promoting this range of skincare.

For those looking for something that rosacea sufferers have liked over the years, a decent place to start is Cetaphil.
