The element that sets Redness Relief apart from a standard every day moisturiser is that it contains a sheer green tint. I know this sounds pretty crazy, but let's talk about colour correcting for a second. In a nutshell- green neutralises red, every time, no exceptions. It's just like a rule, or the law. I'm not saying you'll be walking around with a green face, because that'd be ridiculous- this is designed to be worn underneath your foundation or BB cream to help even out your skin tone. The fact that it hydrates your skin AND acts a sunscreen...AND a colour correcting primer is just perfect. Everyone knows I love a great multi-tasker, and Redness Relief is right up there with the best because it combines 3 (normally fairly expensive) products into one awesome one. I save money, and I save space on my bathroom shelves- both pretty important things to save, if I'm honest.
This is such a lovely product to use every day because I know that not only will it not freak my skin out, but I know that the ingredients are going to soothe any existing inflammation. It contains Oat, which I know from experience is incredibly effective at chilling my redness right down; and the green tint is produced via natural earth minerals. I was really surprised about how moisturising it was for such a lightweight formula, and my skin just feels cooler after application. It's also really difficult to find an SPF product that doesn't clash with my skin or the makeup I use over the top. Dermalogica is covering all the bases, seriously.
One thing I really want to recommend is when applying Redness Relief, don't rub it in too hard! Promise? Because this will just make any redness worse, trust me. If anything, try to leave a hint of green in place to act as a primer- then pop your foundation, BB or CC on and go and face the world. No one will think you're angry, embarrassed, or sun burnt- and this is a great thing. I give it all the high fives in the world!
