Colorescience reached out to me a few weeks ago and asked if I’d like to try their new All Calm Clinical Redness Corrector, and I said yes. I had actually just started to notice some redness around my nose and in my chin area, so I figured why not!
I had never heard of Colorescience before receiving that e-mail, so I did a bit of investigating. I found tons of good reviews, so I was pretty excited! They are huge on sunscreen, and protecting your skin, so I was excited!

At first, I was a bit hesitant because of the greenish tint the product seems to have. After reading more about the product, I learned that the greenish tint comes from chromium oxide and works to neutralize redness. It was also a bit thick for my liking, but again, after reading a bit more about the product I learned that it works best if you apply right after you moisturize for a more even application. After that, it’s been working really well for me. I’ve been applying it immediately after I moisturize, and right before my foundation. I haven’t been using a primer when using the All Calm because I really don’t need it. I’ve noticed that my foundation lasts a bit longer than it would with my normal primer and it seems to apply a lot more smoothly. I’ve had a few mini breakouts around my chin and jaw line that has caused a bit of redness, but the All Calm covered it up pretty well. The redness I was noticing around my nose is completely covered when I use this All Calm too, which is awesome! My favorite part about this product is the SPF 50. I try not to leave the house without sun protection, and this product has me covered!
I like that I can pick up Colorescience at just about any dermatologist or skin care salon in my area and on-line if needed. I also love that they have a full line of products that includes everything from foundation to highlighters!
The price for the All Calm is a bit steep…$120 for 1 fl. oz./90 day supply. I honestly think this product is worth the price tag if you need a redness corrector. It eliminates the need for so many other products in your routine (which cost money!!!), and helps protect your skin with its SPF. I’m looking forward to trying more from this brand, especially their Loose Mineral Foundation Brush SPF 20 and Sunforgettable Brush-On Sunscreen SPF 50.
