User Reviews

In the last year or so several members of the rosacea-support group have tried these products.

joann_scanlon2000 says :

I have been using the Eucerin redness relief cleanser for several months works very well for my skin but I didn’t care for the rest of the products in the redness relief line.

minina62 says :

I use Finacea once a day, and use Eucerin Redness Relief line to wash my face and moisturize. So far my skin hasn’t been this good in ages. I used to have flareups once a month and they were so serious that I had to take antibiotics for it. Not any longer.

mandyrain2002 says :

As far as cosmetics are concerned, I use Eucerin Redness Relief stuff for skin care. It works pretty well, but I’m always on the hunt for something better.

SimplyPoetic says :

I wear the green sunscreen and the night redness relief cream, and I love it! I wear it and then put zinco on top of it, and feel a strong barrier on my face! I also live in Texas, and as you know we have some HOT weather, and it hasn’t melted off yet. I am sure if you got a good sweat going on, anything would eventually wear off.

At first I didn’t like the green color, but I got pass that, and found if you use it as a base and add to are better off.

Try the night cream it is not green, but has a nice sheer feel to it, and it smells nice.

bjshadder says :

I’ve tried the cleanser, day lotion and soothing night cream. I love the cleanser and night cream – it’s the only cleanser I’ve been able to use without irritation or dryness. It’s a gel cleanser and it’s non-foaming and I have trouble with foaming cleansers – this is really great for me.

The Soothing Night Cream is wonderful for me too – it’s the only thing that I’ve found that doesn’t irritate my skin and it actually reversed a really bad episode of irritation and flushing and now my skin is much calmer. The day lotion is okay – it’s not moisturizing enough for me – it has a drier texture and it just doesn’t do much for me. It doesn’t irritate my skin at all though, so if you have oilier skin, it might work well.

I was a bit leary of the sunscreen, but I can tolerate it just fine. I’m returning the day lotion though because although the green tint does cancel out the red, I can’t wear it under makeup because it’s not moisturizing enough and I have to wear another moisturizer in addition to it, which is way too much product on my skin at once.

bjshadder followup up with saying :

Last week I wrote a raving review of these products. Well, I hate to say that the honeymoon is over, and I’m seeking an annullment! Yes, they are going back to Walgreen’s today.

They aren’t anything special – the anti-redness properties aren’t making me any less red anymore, and last night after I washed and applied the soothing night cream, I actually had a flare up! So, nope, they are totally out. I also have the day lotion, and while it doesn’t irritate my skin, I am getting oilier than usual during the day and oily skin is one of my triggers, so it’s going back too. They are too expensive for drugstore products not to work.

rjarrell2004 says :

I have tried the Eucerin redness relief line. I love the cleanser and still use it at night because it does a good job of taking off my makeup without overdrying my skin – gently massage on and leave for a minute or two to get a good clean.

You probably don’t need to worry about taking off makeup, so you may not need to leave it on as long as I do.

The redness relief daily perfecting lotion has a green tint to it and does a pretty good job of neutralizing my redness. It caused my skin to be a bit oily and bumpy, so I’ve stopped using it. The soothing night cream worked well, but I prefer Good Skin All Calm Moisture Lotion as it is a bit less oily and leaves my skin with a great texture.

I also use All Calm soothing toner and creamy cleanser in the morning. I didn’t try the Eucerin redness relief stick for spot treatment.

ken972 says :

I tried out the Eucerin Redness relief products myself. The only relief I got was the green tint of those products took some of the redness away. Not much of a breakthrough. And some did sting a little. Seems some of these new products are just about masking the redness instead of actually reducing it.

Erika_in_Michigan says :

I caved in to the pressure & bought the cleanser & night creme (from Rite Aid). Used it for 4 days & returned both items (keep those receipts!). The cleanser made me really red, and I would stay red longer than usual. I was also starting to get a build up of dry skin on my chin. The night cream didn’t calm my skin, & in the morning I’d be a bit pinker & greasier than normal.

NanHIm says :

I have just begun using it within the past couple of weeks. I like the cleanser as it is a foaming type. My face is slightly red after cleansing but it always is, no matter what I use.

I do not like the texture of the moisturizer. The green color does help to tone down redness though.

NanHIm also says :

I have been using these products for about a month and overall am pleased. No miracle cure but they work well enough.

I didn’t like the Daily Perfecting Lotion at first as it doesn’t appear to moisturize very well but it does do a good job of toning down the redness. Now, as I write this, I am wondering if it is even intended to be a moisturizer. Does anyone know?

I do plan to continue using this for the forseeable future, or until someone here writes about some other product that catches my eye.

clpass2000 says :

I have been using the Eucerin Soothing Redness Relief Cleanser for two weeks now with no luck. My redness is the same and I have twice the amount of Papules & Pustules. I will stop using it today….I assume I will have no luck with the rest of their “Rosacea claimed Friendly Line”

beefamerica says :

I like the cleanser well enough. Not sure to what extent it actually “soothes” my skin or relieves redness. But it at least seems not to irritate, which is a rarity. And it rinses off well. My face doesn’t feel tight after washing like it did with the Cetaphil bar soap.

In my ongoing quest for a decent sunblock I looked at the Daily Perfecting Lotion as well, but the tinted formula doesn’t blend in well enough for a dude.

smches says:

I tried this and was not impressed with it. It didn’t do anything for me.

wwwdotchat says:

All their products burn my skin and make me red as a radish 🙂

sk8shan5 says:

Sorry, I couldn’t find the original post in my e-mails. Yet, I swear by this line. It’s the only thing that doesn’t make my face burn. The only thing I’d say to avoid is that green cover stick. It covers great, but there is not enough product in it to warrant a purchase. I used it a total of 3 times – not even covering my whole face – before it was empty. The rest of the stuff, especiallly the cleanser seem to work well for me.

polockhart says:

I really like the Eucerin Sensitive Skin wash. It is very gentle and extremely economical. One squirt lathers up nicely so the bottle lasted for several months. I have tried the nighttime Redness Relief cream and like it although I think some people might find it irritating. I also have the sunscreen and like that as well.

I would also recommend the Aveeno Ultra Calming products. They have feverfew in them which really calms down my skin quickly. I really like the Ultra Calming Moisturizer with sunscreen the best of all I have tried. I just bought that last night at Eckerd on sale for $13 minus $2 on a coupon. I don’t like the foaming face wash, it doesn’t really lather up and seems wasteful. The nighttime cream is excellent and I use that more than the Eucerin. All products are over the counter and reasonably priced.


Since I wrote this article Eucerin has released a new product in the Redness Relief product range. According to Eucerin the Soothing Anti-Aging Serum is the first anti-aging serum specially formulated for red facial skin. They claim that it can visibly reduce red skin with concentrated `skin soothing’ Licochalcone and has proven reduction of fine lines and wrinkles from its usage of Coenzyme Q10.

    Hi Erick, Regarding your shaving problem, the best thing you can do is to stop using razors and buy a good quality electric shaver. I was advised this by my doctor 10 years ago and I have never went back to using foam and razor. The redness that I used to get from shaving is no longer a problem.
    I also have Rosacea and have started to use Eucerin but not the anti redness stuff just the moisturing ointment and it seems ok so far, still not sure.

  2. Mira says:

    For two days I am using Eucerin nightrelief redness creme and no changes.But I will still use but I am afraid from side affects.

  3. Maegan says:

    I found the Redness Relief cleanser in Longs while scouring for something to relieve my skin that was gentler than acne cleanser. Having tried so many things, I shrugged and purchased it with the expectation of being diappointed. This is the first product that doesn’t dry my skin! I saw a noticable lessening of redness within a few days, though my skin was a little oilier. I reduced my usage to once a day (hippie chick, I usually only wash my hair every 7-10 days) and that seems to do the trick. Unfortuanetly Longs – now CVS – no longer carried the Redness Reliefe line, nor does any other store in my area. If I run out, I have to order it online and wait a week. This actuallyaffords me the opportunity to appreciate the cleanser, since using any other cleanser leaves my skin terribly dried and prone to break-outs.

    I do use the green concealer, but it is thick and doesn’t absorb well. I’ve found that if I apply a light vitamin E cream (no extra minerals, oils, or fragrance) then smooth the concealer over that is blends more easily. The vitamin E is good anyway because one of my symptoms is excessive dryness and peeling after a breakout.

  4. Kat says:

    I’m 21. I’ve had normal skin untill…past summer I noticed I’m getting these weird pinkish, kinda itchy spots on my cheeks that appear then disappear and so on. I started washing my face with camomile tea, two times a day. Makes it better. I’ve been using Eucerin, the Anti-Redness Night cream for 3 months now. Soothing and not too fat, just right! Not as pleased with the green tinted moisturizer, it makes a great sunblock but…I find trouble putting it even, it clumps here and there. The spots didn’t disappear completely but they’re less frequent and not as obvious.

  5. Becky says:

    I’ve been using the redness relief ultra calming cleanser, green tint spf lotion, and ultra calming night cream for about a year now. It works better than the Aveno products I was using before. I’ve seen improvement in my skin, less redness, and no flare ups since I’ve been using it. Doesnt clear it up completely, but its alot better than before. And it’s a affordable product line. Easy to get at drugstores, like Walgreens.

  6. R W says:

    i’ve been using the night cream, as well as the the green day cream. and have seen no postive results i agree with bjshudder , the products are crap!!!i believe all the positive comments are being posted by their marketing dept!!

  7. Matt says:

    I use the night creme regularly and it’s a great moisturizer. I use it before bed and first thing in the morning after a shower. It’s the only moisturizer I’ve found that keeps my dryness under control. And no I’m not with their marketing dept.

  8. Vera says:

    I have developed redness on my cheek about 6 months ago. I didnt know what to do so I went to see my dermatologist and he prescribed me an antibiotic that did not work but made it worse. I have been using all kinds of creams and nothing made it better. I didnt know what to do. My face looked irritated and I had to use makeup to cover all the redness. I decided to do some research on creams and read all the reviews and yes I found Eucerin Redness Relief daily cream. I have been on this cream about two days and saw results instantly. I cant believe that its actually working. It has a green tint which they say is suppose to reduce the redness and it has!!!!!! I recommend this to anyone who has the same problem as I do. Im not sure if I have a mild Rosacea or just redness on my cheeks. I wish I knew about this earlier, it would have saved me a lot of headaches.

  9. Sharon says:

    Hi. I have been reading your notes. I wanted to find out if I am doing everything I can to not only keep the redness; but, remove the acne associated with rosacea. I have the spider veins too. I have been using Noxzema to wash with and it seems to eliminate most of the red and control the acne. It has been doing well. I will probably see a doctor to get the veins addressed with a laser. I had laser treatment before and it kept the rosacea away for 4 years.

  10. Christine says:

    I have been using the Eucerin Redness Relief soothing moisturizing lotion since my Dr. recommended it back last summer. I have had a very hard time finding it to purchase recently and contacted the manufacturer which has informed me that they are discontinuing the product. I did not like the Daily perfecting lotion, because the green tint was too much for my mild case of rosacea and it was just too much for my extremely oily skin. I have a prescription, but was hoping to avoid it (I had been with eucerin). I used Aveeno before, but they also discontinued the lotion that I used.

  11. Fleur says:

    i have been using the eucerin redness relief daily perfecting lotion with the green tint for a week, it is amazing. i use it on top of my usual moisturizer so it is easy to spread. i have had mild rosacea for years and have found nothing to help.
    i found it in the USA while i was on holidays. this works so well a friend asked if i had had a face lift. would love to be able to buy it in Australia.

  12. John M. says:

    HI, i used the eucerin products once before and they were great. I love them. They helped me so much with the nasty redness and flakeyness on my forehead that i suffered for around 2 years. Now in days i no longer need it, but i really recommend it for anybody suffering from the same redness problem.

  13. Richard K says:

    Hi all,
    Am not sure if I suffer from rosacea per se, I do not get the pimples etc that so many describe. I do however flush quite strongly to the point where the heat can become really unpleasant. All the usual things like avoiding looking in mirrors and such like. Years ago I tried a green tinted product that looked terrible but for the past 17 years or so I have just put up with it. Until now, I started doing some research into different possible creams etc. I have just purchased the eucerin sample kit from ebay. As I’m in the UK the products here are expensive so I got this from the US. What I’d like to know though is are these products designed to reduce redness, or are they products that can be used by people with sensitive skin? I use a normal facewash that has no effect on my redness and only occasionally use moisturiser on my face. Certainly no moisturiser at night. Are these products going to help or have I wasted my money on something I do not need?
    Oh and good luck to all x

  14. Sharon says:

    I have tried many things to make my skin look better. It is sensitive. You may want to try mineral make-up. Estee Lauder has a good product. It is healthy, provides sun screen and balances tone while hiding imperfections. Don’t use it on your whole face, only the areas that you feel need it. They can match your skin tone while you are there. Match your blush to your inside finger tips. I don’t see anything wrong with a man doing the same.

    If the mineral poweder cakes or looks too dry in some areas. Use a water only spray on it. Only water. Don’t rub.

    If your face is severely dry, you may want to cut back on the usage area and concentrate your wash on the areas that need it. I also have been just using water 2 x at mid day to rinse my face. The water seems to do a great job in hydrating and calming to the expent that systs that I get in some area go away. Of course I still have to use the med wash in morning and evening; but, again concentrate on areas as if I use it all over constantly, I break out more.

  15. Sharon says:

    I have it in my eyes also. To keep it where my eyes do not hurt so much with dryness and what appears to feel like sand always in them, I rinse them out a few times daily with plain water and open my eyes under water when swimming. The eye rinses seemed not to work as well as just water.

    • susan says:

      Hi Saron, I too have rosacea in my eyes and my ophthalmic told me to put either cotton wool soaked in water as hot as I can stand it twice a day for 10 minutes a time and this does relieve the dry eye. My optician gave me a gel filled eye mask that you heat in the microwave and it’s great. The mask is called Therapearl and it stays hotter than the cotton wool, it can be used either hot or cold. Don’t now what it’ll be called abroad as I live in the UK. You have my sympathy as this gritty feeling lasts ages and mine never used to go away until I could retire at night and close my eyes. I hope this helps

  16. Tom says:

    I am a 73 year old CA man. I have had reddish cheeks for many years. But two weeks ago we went on vacation to Nebraska. The second day there I had a trbl breakout as Charles Barkley would say. My cheeks and forehead were all broken out and didn’t know what is was. I was lucky to get in to a PA and she said I had Rosacea and I said what in the world is that. Well she filled me in with some of the symtoms and some treatments. I know now there is no cure but there are some meds that help. So 13 days ago she prescribed Metronidazole Gel 0.75%. I applied it twice a day and it didn’t seem to do any good till day five. Then I could see some of the breakout starting to dry up. As of today the sores have now disapeared but some redness and some red spots are still present. I think my triggers were from a ointment Clobetasol Prop 0.05% that I had for a rash that was all over my body when I ate a bunch of Edamames (which are like peas) and I put this ointment on the red spots on my cheeks before my trip. Then the first night there my daughter made home made chili that was very stove hot and spicie hot as well. Well the next day is when I was a mess. I think these are the first thing I will put on my trigger list. I have also started eating licorice, oatmeal and blue berries. Face is real dry but I will work on that later. The post have helped Thanks, Tom

  17. Susan says:

    I was just recently diagnosed with rosacea when I was at the dermatologist for something else, he causally said you know you have rosacea right? Well I didn’t but I did realize I had a sunburn that wouldn’t go away and that I had really sensitive skin! Anyhow, he prescribed me MetroGel 1% which I found worked almost immediately but dries out my skin so I need to but a good moisturizer over it. But he also told me to use Avene redness relief cream as it has a gentle sun block in it. It also has a green tint but is very gentle to the skin. I do like it but I must be sure to wash it off at night as, with all sun screens, it will clog my pours.

    It won’t cure your skin but it may help 🙂 Now if only I could find a decent make up for rosacea – I tend not to wear make up because it is all so irritating, now I know why, so I’m on the hunt for something I can use.

  18. Michael says:

    Hi, can any one that used the Eucerin redness relief cleanser can tell me that is it normal to feel like a cold, minty sensation on my face for like a long time after using the cleanser?
    If so could you email me the response?

  19. laurie says:

    I have been using the eucerin redness relief products but noticed recently that my face was redder than usual with my rosacea. I purchased Clinique urgent care relief and was shocked to see that within 1 day my redness was completely gone! Clinique redness relief line is definately for me.

  20. Mwanny says:

    I don’t have rosacea, but few years ago,my forehead broke out so bad from something I ate. I tried so many products to clear my face, but I ended up irritating my face badly. Now for 2 years or more have been having a problem any time I go to the sun or stay in a house where there is heat. My cheeks turn red and feel like am burning. No pimple at all, my face is very clear only the irritation. Does anyone advice me what to use. Dermatologists have visited but thru are not of any help. Am very careful on what I put on my face that will not irritate me. Any advise? Thanks in advance. Mwanny!

  21. Michael says:

    Response to Mwanny,

    Hey man, i fell ya. Something similar happened to me. Throughout middle school and high-school i would get the occasional pimple here and there, but my facial skin got very bad once i went to college. During my 2nd quarter in freshman year, one day i was outside in the sun and the next day my face was bright red then started to peel, i assumed it was a sun burn or an allergic reaction to the sunscreen i was using, it was weird cuz i never had a sunburn and i lived in the desert cities where summer is like 100+ degrees but after that incident my face was always constantly red especially in the sun or in a heated environment. I’m not sure why it happens, but to this day i get severe facial flushing and my cheeks are always red. i have tried many products and none of them seem to help. they either make my facial skin redder and irritated or gimme sever breakouts. so far i have already spent like 200 dollars on skin care products that are just no good.

  22. RedRose says:

    I love Eucerine products, but their line for rosacea made mine worse. It made my skin burn. I got a full sampling of the whole line from a dermatologist and none worked for me. Apparently I am sensitive to something in their formulas.

  23. Daria says:

    I’ve been using the Eucerin line for 2 months. I don’t use any other products for my rosacea (not even a prescription). The products do not seem to help control any breakouts.

    However, I like the cleanser and I will use it in the evenings on nights that I am not doing an oil cleansing routine. The cleanser feels soothing and makes my skin feel soft.

    I also use the daily perfecting lotion everyday. I will agree that it does not provide much actual moisturizing, which for me is not an issue. It is really a sunblock and the green tint does help tone down the redness a little bit. It does not get rid of the redness completely, I still need to use a bit of foundation to cover it. The product blends in well despite its initial appearance from the bottle.

    If I feel I need extra moisturizing I use the night cream before going to bed. It doesn’t feel heavy and has not caused me any issues.

    Overall I would review this line as great non-irritating products for people with sensitive skin, but not useful for controlling rosacea on its own.

  24. andre Harris says:

    I’ve been using Eucerin Anti-redness neutralising day fluid (I think this might be the UK name for it). I have been using it with Calmin cleanser which I wash off (only available on line). Initially I solved the worst of my Rosacea problems by applying lavender oil to my face, which also worked to stop the irritation of my eyes. (I don’t know why the lavender worked but it may be that I had som kind of yeast or fungal infection that was causing the rosacea). Now I don’t have a problem and people who don’t know me often comment that I have good skin, which is always a shock to me because I lived with bad skin throughout my life. My skin is good now but I have noticed that if I eat too much oily fish (which if course expands the blood vessels) then I can still get flushing.

  25. andre Harris says:

    the Eucerin Anti-redness neutralising day fluid is the first moisturiser I’ve ever been able to use in my life and cured all my flakiness (at least all the skin flakiness-the brain still needs work), so I’m loyal to it. Some people don’t like the rather dry texture of it, but for Rosacea you need oil free products and I wouldn’t use anything else. I use it morning and night after cleansing with Calmin- which is a fantastic cleanser (mainly based on glycerin I believe) you can either tissue it off or wash it off- i wash it off- but you don’t have to be so scrupulous so you don;t have to rub your face so much as with some other cleansers.

  26. Tim says:

    I tried the Eucerin Rosacea creme and it seemed ok for the first couple of days…and then my skin became very inflamed and started to peel as if I was a couple of days into a very bad sunburn. Now my face is far more red than it was and I am peeling like a snake. I don’t know if it is part of the regeneration process, but I think not.

  27. JJ says:

    Tim – it sounds like you had a chemical reaction -most of these products have a lot of chemicals in them which react to sensitive irritated skin, and you probably gave yourself a free bad chemical peel. I have had expensive chemical peels and they have never done that to my face. I hope your face heals. Some pure organic aloe vera would probably help your skin heal and settle down again.

    Most rosacea sufferers don’t seem to do well with chemical sunscreens either.

    What you wash with can make a difference to how your skin reacts to more products. I have had my face go blazing red after two different products didn’t mix well.

    I have also found out the hard way that a lot of products have made me break out more because they weren’t oil free, and even some of the oil free ones do. Usually white heads are from the products.

  28. Take from a seasoned veteran who has been fighting Rosacea for over 20 years. Other then V beam. There is no real cure for Rosacea ( at least not yet ) and I NEVER promote and Over the counter products..NEVER! BUT This is the 1 exception. Eucern Redness relief does help, it’s not a cure but using it with other products does help. It is a good product.

  29. Debra says:

    The first night I used the Eucerine cream I saw a huge difference the next morning in the redness of my face. My papules are healing, and not as many popping up. It says to give it 4 weeks. So far this is the best product I have tried, and that includes prescription products.

  30. Sheila says:

    I have been using the Eucerin Redness Relief soothing cleaner for about 5 yrs now with great results and today I opened a new tube and my face got red and was burning! I compared the ingredients from the old tube and new one and they changed the formula! Now I need to find a new product…very disappointed.

  31. Karen says:

    Only thing that works for me is hydrocortisone 1% for a really bad flare up only have to use it for 3 days and not often
