I posted at the beginning of the month showing you how I cover rosacea on my face. I was so nervous pressing the publish button, as I tend to get a little worried when I share a bit more of a personal post with you. I don’t know why I worried though as your comments were amazing, not that I expected anything different of course, thankyou! ♥
Shortly after I was contacted to try a new cream that aims to help treat rosacea. Now I know that it cannot be cured completely but any cream that claims to treat symptoms and help reduce redness is definitely worth a try in my opinion. Especially as it is steroid and paraben free! Like I said before, I understand that not everyone will want to cover rosacea up as this is part of who you are and it is not a bad thing at all. I spent many years at school/adult life being teased about my bright red face, this has led to me literally never leaving the house without make up on, I know this may sound stupidly vain but it is really just a confidence issue. If my face didn’t permanently look so flushed, I would happily prance around makeup free..maybe!
Dermalex rosacea repair cream* £18.99
Dermalex rosacea cream contains UV filters to help neutralise triggers of rosacea and contains soothing and calming ingredients too. The instructions say to apply twice a day, which I am usually awful at doing but I have actually been a really good girl and managed to put it in a really obvious place so there is no way of me forgetting! I honestly have to make lists for everything due to my forgetfulness.
The cream itself is pale green which I presume is to mask the redness slightly like I showed you in my post before. It absorbs into the skin without feeling oily, in fact within a few minutes you can’t even feel it on there at all. The scent really reminds me of rose, although the cream is fragrance free it does still have a slight scent to it. Dermalex is slightly on the pricey side I admit but after using it, I think I can see why!
I have been using this for just over a week and I have to say I am really impressed. I’m not going to lie, I really didn’t know what to expect as I have tried so many creams before without noticing any difference. When I first applied this cream I was slightly worried as my face instantly went bright red, but after about 30 seconds my face calmed down dramatically. I don’t think this was down to the cream though, as my skin seems to do this when I put anything on it, so I would more likely put this down to my extremely sensitive skin. I have to say I still have a slightly flushed looking face, but nowhere near as red as it normally is. The normal itchiness of my face seems to have died off slightly too. If this is how it looks after a week, I am excited to see how it improves after a month or so.
I will keep you posted when I have been using this cream for about 4 weeks so that you can hopefully see the difference too. ♥
You can buy Dermalex cream from Boots.
