A daily soothing and anti redness cream that can be used for all skin types even the most sensitive to intolerant skin.

Comes Crealine AR – Creme Anti-Rougeurs
(Anti-Redness Cream)

Brevet Rosactiv
(Rosactiv Patent) – helps reduce the appearance of both temporary and permanent redness and prevents their reoccurence

This moisturising cream has been a lifesaver in days I get redness due to whatever may have caused it. God knows, my skin is prone to redness, or red blotches. I thank my good days of redness free. Yet I curse the days I get red and I turn to this tube of green cream goodness.

Why do we get sensitive skin?

It may be genetic. Although, in most cases it is a sensitivity due to factors in our environment (pollution, temperature) or even lifestyle differences (unsuitable beauty products, diet, etc).

Sensitive skin generally comes with feelings of overheating, sometimes even diffuse or localised redness. (see source).

Description

Crealine AR soothes the skin intensely, moisturises and aids in reducing the sensations of overheating and tightening. Its green tint instantly neutralises the redness of the face; the cream becomes an excellent make-up base.

Apply once or twice a day or as recommended by your physician.

Composition

Green tea extract, soy beans, gingko biloba, canola oil, enoxolone, allantoin

I use this if my skin is getting localised redness in any area due to whatever reason, be it environmental or maybe because I’m just ill. However, what I love using this for is no surprising other than as a make up base. Somehow it gives a smooth and even base for the foundation.

It does not irritate nor aggravate. It leaves no greasy residue. It has no disturbing scent despite it looking green. Its no fuss packaging is also travel friendly and with 40ml size, this baby can travel with me everywhere in my handbag. Easily. Just twist, and apply. I love how the nozzle is able to dispense the perfect amount of product each time. No clogging has been experienced both in my skin and in the tube.

On a side note, if I was going to do somebody else’s face makeup on that day and they have redness on their face. Mind you, I would pick this up and use it on them. No drama.

Will I repurchase? Yes. I will also be adding it to my future kit.

RRP: $49.95 – 40ml

Available: selected Terry White Chemists across Queensland and selected pharmacists around Australia. This may help you find it – click here.

If you can read French, here’s the back of the tube.
