You can easily find scientific sounding claims about Topix Replenix CF. How well does it work in practice though ?
There are some preliminary research results available that suggest that green tea is useful in treating the papules and pustules of rosacea.
Here are some of the buzz word rich claims that accompany Topix Replenix CF;
Topix Replenix Cream CF (Caffeine Enhanced)
Replenix is a patent-pending formulation composed of 90% polyphenol isolates, derived from green tea, with potent antioxidant properties to assist in minimizing free-radical induced skin damage.

… So i told him let me see the product and then I’ll think about it .. so i looked at the main ingredients which were green tea and topical caffeine…so i came home and looked it up on the net and found that topical caffeine is a vasoconstrictor so that was all i needed to hear and i went back and tried it…and WOW to my amazement in 2 days I would say the last of the redness that the elidel cream and supplements weren’t taking care of is now gone … and I would pretty much say now that I’m not red, maybe just slightly but not really too noticeable…as far as I know he doesn’t sell this outside his office, but topical caffeine is known as a mild vasoconstrictor and boy does it work well.

Glad to hear you found a great product that works. Congrats!
One of my derms suggested his own topical green tea with caffeine product line, and it worked well for me also. Since I figured he wasn’t formulating his own products, I googled the ingredients and found that his products were a rebranding of the Replenix products, and I could could get them on the internet for considerably less money.
I use the following Replenix products: Topix Replenix Green Tea CF Cream and Topix Replenix Fortified Cleanser
There is also a Replenix green tea cf serum (I prefer the green tea cf cream.
Thought these might be the same products your derm is selling and that maybe these would be a little less expensive for you. But again, glad to hear you found a product that works!

Just a quick report on the Replenix CF Serum, which I’ve been using for one month now. It does appear to be helping. Of course it’s not a panacea, and this is an early assessment after the first month, but I’m inclined to believe that improvement has been around 30% since I introduced the Replenix CF Serum into my skin care regimen.
I chose the Replenix CF Serum (instead of cream) because the serum can be applied directly to the skin in a very thin coat and appears to penetrate the skin well. Also this product contains caffeine, a vasoconstrictor when applied as a topical. So now every morning after washing I start with a fairly thin layer of replenix applied directly to the skin surface, over all affected areas. Then I rub in a couple drops of jojoba, while the Replenix is still moist. Lastly I apply a coat of tinted ZincO.

How about you ? Does the hype of this product match with your results.
