I remember the first time rosacea came into my life. I was home from my college and my Mom and I went out to dinner. When the waitress came to our table and asked if we wanted drinks, I order a glass of wine and my Mom asked for iced tea. “What? You’re not having wine?” I asked. She told me wine was fine at home, but she got embarrassed at how red her face became as a result, so she avoided it in public. Secretly, I thought she was being silly.
Flash forward 10 years and it became not silly at all. Because the reason she avoided wine in public became the same reason I avoided spicy foods even though I love them: rosacea.
Turns out, we’re not alone, not by a long shot. Studies have shown that 51% of people who suffer from redness have even missed work due to their symptoms. It’s super embarrassing.
“Wow, you’re so red!”
“Are you ok? Your face is really flush!”
“Do you need some water or something?”
That rosy glow that a lot of people seek? If you’re a rosacea-sufferer, it becomes what you’re trying to avoid. Luckily Colorescience has a line of products that help keep redness at bay, including the fabulous Colorescience All Calm™ Clinical Redness Corrector SPF 50.
With a light, whipped texture Colorescience All Calm is a 3-in-1 product for red, sensitive skin. It:
- Easily neutralizes redness with its subtle green undertone (my art school training and color wheel knowledge taught me that!)
- With a chemical-free UVA/UVB SPF 50, it protects skin against the #1 rosacea trigger, the sun.
- Its patent-pending BioSolace complex is a blend of ingredients that helps to provide ongoing redness and sensitivity relief.
But it’s not just people with rosacea who will benefit from this. If you have adult acne or are post any kind of procedure, Colorescience All Calm will help you tackle redness. Used as directed, the bottle will last you 90 days.

That’s Colorescience All Calm applied to moisturized skin with nothing else on top of it. If you need more coverage, use it as a primer and add another Colorescience product on top.
Tint du Soleil UV Protective Foundation has a similar light (and equally fabulous) whipped consistency. The Mineral Corrector Palette lets you custom camouflage, conceal, protect and brighten imperfections, blemishes and dark spots with five neutralizing shades of SPF 20 shades (another nod to my art-school background). And if you want something that’s as simple as it gets; Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen offers both coverage and SPF 50 with a loose powder that comes in four shades and a built-in brush. This is perfect for on-the-go protection.
I love that I can customize my coverage depending on what I’m doing or how red I am on any particular day, and can foresee all four products becoming indispensable in my routine.
