First off let me start with saying, I suffer for quite a nasty case of acne rosacea.
I received a travel size set of Elemis products as a gift which included this Rosepetal cleanser. I didn't think much about it at the time because I thought I needed to use/purchase products geared towards the treatment and hopeful cure of this condition. So inbetween purchases, I tried this product and thought... Hey, my skin looks pretty good right now. But when I finished my travel kit, I went back to trying to find yet another "rosacea specific" product. (a few awful ones that I won't mention) During this period my face got increasingly worse. Let's just say MY FACE WAS ON FIRE! Breakouts were worse and my skin felt like it was boiling beneath the surface. So I saw this product at skinstore.com and had a flashback to some good memories.
Fast forward... I ordered the Elemis Rosepetal cleanser (and Ginseng toner) and my face calmed down within 2 washings!! No lie... and it's getting better every day. So if it can help the worse case senario (me) I'm sure it would be very beneficial to those who don't have this condition.
