I have very sensitive skin with rosacea - enough that my dermatologist's NP referred to me as "someone with as much redness as you have" when discussing treatment options. This is the only product I've ever used that effectively calms my skin when it flares up. That said, it hasn't eliminated my redness - I don't think anything ever will. But when my skin reaches the point where it hurts/burns, this is the most soothing thing I've found. Bonus: it does not make me break out, which many "soothing" products have. Use on clean skin and leave on overnight.
