Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.I use this serum as I have sensitive and rosacea-prone skin. This is a beautiful and light fluid. It easily absorbs into skin. There are many beneficial ingredients such as ceramides to calm sensitive skin. This may not be hydrating enough for very dry skin, but it is great for me.

How does this serum differ from your other serums? Who is it best for?
Calm Serum is specifically designed for those struggling with persistent redness and/or extra-sensitive skin. Its combination of soothing and repairing ingredients plus gentle inflammation-reducing plant extracts makes it perfect for reducing facial redness whilst fighting the signs of ageing. The formula is suitable for all skin types, including those prone to breakouts or people with rosacea-prone skin. Texture-wise, Calm Serum is our lightest serum. It is slightly lighter than Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum.
How long will it take to see results on my redness?
It can depend on the source of your redness along with your overall skincare routine, but most people will see redness relief within a few hours of applying, or, if used before bed, the next morning. Ongoing use of Calm Serum will reinforce and continue to improve these initial results, especially if your entire skincare routine is gentle, fragrance-free, and you’re applying sunscreen every day. Sun (UV light) exposure is a major contributing factor to persistent inflammation in skin and redness is a key indicator of that inflammatory process.
What kind of redness will Calm Serum work on?
Calm Serum will reduce redness from any source of skin inflammation or irritation, including breakouts, rosacea-prone skin, redness due to irritation, sunburn, dry skin and allergic reactions. Unfortunately, Calm Serum does not eliminate broken capillaries (visible as thread-like spider web veins on the skin’s surface).
