They are claimed as “Safe for sensitive skin and appropriate for Rosacea”.

The Eucerin Redness Relief system has been clinically proven to provide immediate redness relief, and improve the condition of visibly red skin in four weeks.

The Eucerin Redness Relief products consist of ;

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.

    I ordered the sample kit, but only like the tone perfecting cream used under makeup. The night cream isn’t bad. But if you have Rosacea, go to I’ve found gentle, all natural products on there that are very gentle on the skin. They are kind of expensive, but they are worth it.

  2. Steve says:

    I had an allergic reaction to something, not sure if it was the weather changing to fall or the antibiotics i was taking, but my face broke out in rashes and dryness. very uncomforting because i thought i was breaking out again like i did in highschool. after 2 weeks i went to the redness relief kit and it started working right a way. the concealer is ok, it does conceal, but for a guy it doesnt work well with a on the beard, it gets flaky. I started to use the night cream in the morning and night and my skin feels better and the redness has decreased greatly. so far it’s been very good. hopefully it stays that way.

  3. Justus says:

    Hi! I find dermatologica products very good. They are very expensive but I feel they affects very well. I live in Sveden and we don´t have Eucerin thing, but maby I shoud try it.

  4. marisol says:

    well i try it it did work 4 me so i’m happy but now i change it so i dont like it no more now i love metro gel is the best gel creams ever i think yall should try it who know

  5. Tony Birch says:

    Hi im tony aged 56 and have had a lot of probs developing slowly over the last several years. The redness,sawness and facial burning was very hurtful, and at times very embarrassing. I have never tried any of the eucerin redness relief products because i never new there was such products until now. I have just perchased a new computer to do some of my own research. to visually look at me now you would not know i had Rosacea and i wanted to tell anyone who would listern what works for me.I have seen some bad cases of Rosacea and i was getting their .

  6. caitlin says:

    the green day lotion isn’t great, the cleanser is decent, but the night cream is a GODSEND. it’s the ONLY thing i have found that keeps my horribly dry, red, gross skin under complete control.

  7. john says:

    By the way, Clinique’s new redness solutions are HORRIBLE! they were worse then anything I have ever used! What a shame, because their CX line was so good and now they discontinued a good product and replaced it with a HORRIBLE one. Made redness worse almost immediately and just got worse and worse.

  8. Peter Nash says:

    I have just found this website and am amazed at the amount of people who have the same problem as I have. I am 57 and have developed rosacea, which a vengence. I have spots on face, nose , cheeks, scalp and behind my ears. After 6 months of antibiotics creams etc i have been advised to go on roaccutane which i start Monday…any advise would be gratefully received. Reading websites i appears i am in for dry lips skin etc…whats the best moisturisers to use and any guidelines you can give would be most appreciated. Cheers…. Peter Nash (

  9. Hi Peter, you might like to have a read of where Dr. Sy basically confirms that a good moisturizer is critical to the success of accutane.

  10. TW says:

    I am 55 and within the last 5 months started to develope rosacea. I am fair skinned, blond hair, blue eyes and have always had amazing skin. Never any breakouts, small pores and had always been complimented on my skin,…….and NOW- I get Rosacea! What is going on? I have tried Zenmed which works pretty well, but last week I purchased the new Clinque line for redness and so far it works the best. I know that some of you have not had good luck with Clinque or some of the others, which is why I think every individual is different. You must try and try different brands until you find the one that works the best for you.

  11. debra says:

    Hi ..
    I am a 51 yr old female, in the beginning stages of menopause. In just the last 5 months,,,when the hot flashes first began,,,,my face, mostly the cheeks and nose…have become very sensitive, red, and irritated to most things I put on in. I have been an avid user of Noxema to cleanse my skin for YEARS,,,but now that seems to give me flare ups. Some days are worse than others,,,but I don’t know why. Some days it is simply a red tint,,,other days it actually ‘hurts’ and feels more like a rash than just sunburn. I have never had to deal with anything like this,,,,so my question is,,,,is this rosacea?? Is this because of my menopausal hormones? And will it EVER go away?! What have you found to work the best??
    Thank you for helping me,,,,I really appreciate it.

  12. MARISOL says:

  13. MARIE BORGES says:

    I’m a Puerto Rico resident. Recently I bought the starter kit of Eucerin – Redness Relief at Walgreens Store. Since that time I’m trying to get the products at regular sizes. At Walgreens they told me that the products (for redness) will be no longer in stock. I have rosacea and your products give me a wonderful results since the last 6 weeks. I will like to buy the Night Cream and the Soothing Cleanser (both of Redness Relief line). My question is: Do you have a site available to buy the products? or Do you have some representative in P.R.? Please let me know.

  14. ERIK says:

    Hi Marie! I am from Puerto Rico too. You should go to another walgreens store because not all walgreens will eliminate the eucerin line. I am going tomorrow to another derm because I think -I have rosacea. I

  15. ERIK says:

    Hi Marie! I am from Puerto Rico too. You should go to another walgreens store because not all walgreens will eliminate the eucerin line. For example, here in Mayaguez you can get them in the University Plaza store. I am going tomorrow to another derm because I think -I have rosacea. I am very depressed because first I had acne and now this, btw I’m 20 and my good clear skin days seem to be over. 🙁

  16. Jackie says:

    I am 57 years old and have had rosacea breakouts for years. Recently it became much worse and the Metrogel I had was not working. I went to the dermatologist and was prescribed Rosula cleansing wash, an antibiotic made especially for Rosacea problems called Oracea and Ivermectin cream (which I had to buy at a feed store!). Within just a couple of days, my skin totally cleared up. It has been about a month now and my skin looks great and is SO soft. It can’t believe it’s mine when I touch it! I used the Ivermectin every night for a week in the beginning and now use it just once a week. I would highly recommend trying one or all of these to help your rosacea.

  17. Bron says:

    Hi, I am 52 and have had rosacea since I was 30 but it’s been under control for years without prescriptions. I have used the skin renewal products that help your skin cells turn over faster (even tho they are not recommended for rosacea they worked great for me).
    My question now is: I think it is in my eyes. They are swollen and puffy every morning, red, and itchy. Not pink eye as there is no gumminess. Should I go to an opthamoligist for this or a dermatologist? Any advice?

  18. Denise says:

    Hi! While reading the comments I had to respond to one specifically. I ordered a sample kit from and within a couple of days of using their products my rosacea flareup was so severe I had to go back on tetracycline and I am still having problems calming my skin down. Beware, as was stated by someone, be careful in your search for a miracle cure.

  19. Denise says:

    Hi Bron, I too have had problems with my eyes as a result of my rosacea. I have had to have my eylids, upper and lower, lanced and drained by an opthamologist in the past. I have also consulted a dematologist. I personally think it is wise to consult both an opthamologist and a dermatologist since rosacea can worsen over time and you wouldn’t want your sight to be effected, obviously. I prefer to go the natural route too, but taking tetracycline occasionally to avoid a flareup isn’t the worst thing. Just my opinion. Good luck, I can empathize!

  20. Kay says:

    The eucerin stuff SUCKS! I just tried it and it made my face bright red…much more red then the pink it was before. I’ll be bringing it back to store tomorrow.

  21. Amy says:

    I have to agree with Kay above. I received a sample kit from Eucerin last year and it was horrible stuff for me from start to finish. The cleanser was very drying to my skin, the green tinted day lotion not only stung, but was tacky, and the night cream stung terribly. I was glad it was a sample kit as I didn’t find a single item appropriate for my skin.

  22. Pat says:

    After using the Eucerin Moisturizing Lotion for sensitive skin, my cheeks started to get extremely red colored with a itchy and burning sensation, which then resulted in my under eye area to puff out. I called the company and they are willing to not only refund my money, but also will send a pre-paid postage to send the product back. Thank goodness!!! Still, it is small consolation since I had to treat my condition with lots of Benadryl cream and tablets. Sometimes the expensive stuff has much better ingredients for the sensitive skin consumer.

  23. matt says:

    I started using the eucerin redness relief soothing night creme 2 days ago and I have had improvement allready. I put it on my face after my shower in the morning and at night before I go to sleep. So far so good, I will update on how it’s going.

  24. Matt says:

    I have been using eucerin redness relief night creme for 2 weeks now and have noticed alot of improvement. I started using it twice during the day because I didn’t want to pay more money for the daytime products. That proved to be too much for my skin so I went back to using it only at night time and my redness has faded alot. I will keep using it to see if it makes the redness go away completely. I will post my results in 2 more weeks.

  25. Tracy S. says:

    I have ben using the Redness relief anti-agins serum and was very uhappy to find that I ended up walking all over town with a green face. If you check out the company site it claims that there is not anthing that could cause the greentint. I am returning all and looking for something else. I have had it with all the stuff that makes the skin green. !!!! I was especially surprised when I saw that their site claimes that there were no green causing ingedients.

  26. Carl says:

    I developed Rosacea when I was 34 and have been using the Eucerin night cream daily for 4 years. For those of you it didn’t work for, I am truly sorry. I guess it may not work on all skin types. But for myself, and my brother and sister who have also developed Rosacea over the last couple of years, it is a God-send. It does exactly what it is supposed to do. When I don’t use it for a few days, I flare up as usual. Start using it again and the redness goes away. I was so blown away by it the first time I tried it, I took before and after pictures of my face. If you have Rosacea and you haven’t tried it, it is definitely worth a try! I hope they make this product forever!

  27. Hi Tracy,

    The original release of the redness relief range included the Tone Perfecting Creme which contained green concealing pigments and can be used under makeup. They don’t say this about the anti-agin serum so I wonder what went awry with your usage ?

    They no longer seem to promote the Tone Perfecting Creme.


  28. Hi Carl,

    Thanks for the feedback. Which products in the range did you try and like the best ?


  29. April says:

    Thank you for all of the information and personal insight. I received some samples from my derm. Sad to say the Kaiser pharmacy didn’t carry any of the products I tried. Went to several drug stores and found nothing. I will be going to Walgreens to get the eurcerin products. Once again, Thanks!

  30. Ryan says:

    Hi guys–

    I bought Eucerin Redness Relief (the green tinted lotion) after my dermatologist suggested it for redness relief. While the redness did decrease (superficially), a green film was often present on my face throughout the day which was noticeable and even attracted a few comments. I’m not saying don’t buy it, just don’t use too much and really rub it in. I’ll admit I was usually in a hurry when applying it.

    Still, it did make my complexion look a little funky. My face seemed paler and looked absolutely atrocious in photos. I stopped using it after my acne went down and haven’t used it since. That was almost 2 years ago.

  31. Heather says:

    I bought the Eucerin Redness Relief (green-tinted lotion) as well and had the same green film problem as the previous comment. Also, it didn’t moisturize my skin enough so I tried to use my daily moisturizer with it and that made it more pasty. I also began to break out where ever I was putting the Redness Relief lotion. I was surprised since I use other Eucerin products and have never had a reaction to them. I’ve used the Eucerin Calming Cream on my face religiously for about 1.5-2 years now and it is the ONLY thing that doesn’t make me break out and still keeps my skin moisturized! It’s not the perfect lotion for the face (it does make my face a little shiny at times) but it’s the only thing that I’ve found to help the dryness and keep away the irritation (pimples). Unfortunately it doesn’t help with my facial redness but I’ve just begun taking Nicotinamide (generic for Nicomide), so hopefully that starts to work!

  32. Mindy says:

    I have used the Eucerin products and find them to be minimally effective. The green tinted moisturizer does not fare well under makeup. It looks and feels cakey. The nightly calming cream helps a little bit and may be good for using in combination with other treatments like Light Therapy but there may be something better….still looking.

  33. patty says:

    I’ve only used the daily Redness Relief moisturizing lotion and am not impressed by it. I use Metrogel on my skin at night, so I only use this product during the day under makeup. I don’t think it has any soothing properties, the only thing it has is a green tint to reduce the red appearance. It does not apply evenly and is not as moisturizing as other products I have used.

  34. Sarah says:

    Just got diagnosed with rosacea, and it’s mild at this point. I’m glad I saw the dermatologist early. Before I could get a prescription treatment, though, I tried the eucerin redness relief cleanser. So I can say I had a pretty clean trial of it on its own without any other treatment on board. I did improve visibly and in terms of no longer stinging (in contrast, Aveeno calming cleanser made me sting more). After a few days, I even flushed much less often. But it could be just a coincidence (symptoms waning on their own). Surprisingly, although it’s mild, it leaves my fairly oily skin feeling clean and it isn’t worsening the regular acne I might get with some cleansers that don’t take the excess oil off. That means I can use it regularly along with the prescription topical. I sound like a commercial…

  35. Sarah says:

    P.S. I’m hearing everyone either loves Eucerin or Aveeno but not both. I guess I’m a licorice root lover; feverfew is not my friend…

  36. Penny says:

    It is so interesting to see such a variety of responses to different lotions, creams, cleansers, etc. I am 60 and have never been diagnosed with Rosacea per se, but lately and more and more frequently I had suffered bouts of red, itchy, or flaky skin. My dermatologist said I had to change my daily routine–I’d been using Neutrogena bar soap (and Olay moisturizer), which horrified her! She suggested the CeraVe products but I didn’t think they were anything special. A friend said her husband had problems with irritated, red skin and had tried everything (prescription and otherwise) and found that the Aveeno Ultra-Calming products worked best. I am so happy she told me about Aveeno. I now use their foaming cleanser and moisturizer. I LOVE the Ultra-Calming Moisturizer…it has a sunscreen, which the CeraVe moisturizer didn’t, and I can literally feel my skin calming down when I put it on. I’ve used the Eucerin Redness Relief Night Cream for a while, too. It works, I guess– that is, my skin isn’t red/flaky/itchy anymore. But really the Aveeno Ultra-Calming Moisturizer feels the most soothing when I apply it, and I’m convinced it’s the reason my skin calmed down.

  37. Ben says:

    Hey Everyone,
    I decided to give the Eucerin Redness Relief (the green tinted lotion) a try as i’ve always had problems with my face often appearing red and flushed. This as everyone can understand is quite embarressing especially in work situations and i wanted something that could help conceal and take some of the fire out of the redness.
    I’ve had mixed results, on some occasions my face has felt hot however i haven’t had any redness then on others it hasn’t helped conceal much at all.
    To work well i think you have to apply quite alot however not too much as the lotion feels quite heavy and in certain lights the lotion seems to clog in pores which is quite noticeable. I also developed dry skin between and around my eyes which is an area you can’t avoid applying the lotion to as i was left with a very pale face and dark eyes, which attracted comments like “You look very pale – normally you have alot of colour in your face”.

  38. Candy says:

    I’m having a very hard time finding Eucerin Redness Relief Soothing Anti-Aging Serum AND Redness Relief Soothing Moisture Lotion. Is there another brand that is just as good as Eucerin that is available?

  39. gloria says:

    i used this product for two straight weeks with no reasults what so ever…it got worst staring the third week so i decicided to stop using it and this product just burn my face leaving me small red spots all over my cheecks really bad so i will really recomend you not to waist your money in this product and feel freely to return it back to what ever store u had buyed it!!
    (this really happend so plz ppl for trying to look better i got worst)

  40. Erick says:

    I’m about to turn 30 and within the last couple of months have developed rosacea. Although I have always had sensitive skin with redness in the face (since being 20) the whole burning sensation, with extreme flushing, and blistering as well (on really bad days) has consumed my life as of late, many times leaving work early to avoid the embarrassment and hiding from the sun like a vampire. I have tried numerous products without any success. I bought the University Medical Redness Relief kit witch contains an Extra Mild Soothing Wash, Anti-Redness Calming Toner, and a Neutralizing Perfecting Lotion. All were worthless, with the last product turning my face as red as a tomato for about 8-10 hours. I haven’t tried the Aveeno Ultra Calming cleanser or moisturizer yet but am planning on going to the store right now to find it. I HAVE used the Aveeno Ultra Calming Shave Gel(I’m a guy) and for me, this product did nothing to relieve redness, so far the best shaving gel I’ve found is the Nivea Sensitive Shaving Gel. But even still, I’m contemplating not shaving as much just because it is so skin irritating. I went to a dermatologist last week and he gave me several products to use. None of them worked, they just made it worse. The main product I got from the Dr. was ReVita-Forte Lotion. It stings and makes my face look oily, and doesn’t reduce redness, usually made it worse. I’m done with seeing doctors for this because there is no cure for it, only things to help treat it, which I can find on my own (for MUCH less $$).
