Recommended for mature skin that's prone to redness or rosacea

I am perplexed by Sevani’s Advanced Complexion Corrector ($39 for 2oz in the shop).  But in a good way: I can’t figure out how it works so well. A complexion corrector has its work cut out with me, I have color, rosacea prone skin that sees red and makes me look like Mrs Angry even when I am totally relaxed. I’ve been testing Sevani’s for weeks now and it works every time and is incredibly better than almost anything I have ever tried.

Although it’s comparing apples and pears, I have to say that the only other thing that has worked as well for me is E’shee’s serum. It is much more expensive ($179), but it must be appreciated that it is also providing a high quality anti-aging growth factor (hence, the apples and pears). However, if you are in need of something to correct red, flushed skin and perhaps even take down some broken capillaries, then Sevani’s Advanced Complexion Corrector is one of the bargains of the year.

Complexion Corrector is a light spray. Sevani’s founder, Sheryl Gibbs, told me that she avoided formulating it as a cream so that users wouldn’t have to layer on yet another product. This is a welcome decision as far as I am concerned. I apply it to a clean face before anything else (I simply spray a little into a cupped palm and then dab with my finger). Within a few moments, rosy cheeks look calmer and with daily use over about six weeks, the effect is definitely cumulative.

The deceptively simple formula is dominated by soothing aloe juice and willow bark, a BHA that is a natural exfoliant, as well as a source of salicilin, flavonoids, and tannins. Panthenol (a vitamin B) reduces itching and inflammation, while another B, niancinamide, has been shown in studies to reduce rosacea. Licorice is another useful ingredient - the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology reported that licorice is an effective treatment for rosacea, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and drug-induced skin eruptions.

Sevani is ever mindful of our anti-aging needs and has added in some botanical antioxidants in the form of lotus and rooibos extracts. The scent is a barely discernible rose.

An added bonus as we enter summer is that I have found that Sevani’s Advanced Complexion Corrector is a stellar soother of insect bites!

    Hi Laura, I applied it in the morning and the manufacturer directions are to use it daily after cleansing. Also, read the reader reviews on the product page - they almost all imply daytime use and no one mentions any adverse effects from the sun. Wear a sunscreen though.

    Can this product be used during the day? I've read that willow bark extract can be sun sensitizing.

    I have a great deal of reness on my nose and cheeks, not sure its rosacea
    but i put this on first thing in the morning and amazingly the redness is near gone.
    Highly recommend!!! Love,lLove, Love this stuff. Greatly reduces the need to apply as much cover up as before.

    Jina and Thea: Please see the revised ingredients list for this product, which now clearly specifies each ingredient.

    Here is the response from Sevani with regard to your queries: "We removed the small percentage of essential oils that were primarily for aroma, and increased the % of anti-inflammatory botanical extracts for greater efficacy. It is simply the same great formula but also now with green tea along with the red tea for a powerful antioxidant synergy."

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Jina, good question. I'll ask Sevani for more information.

    Hi marta, could it be the high amounts of vitamin Bs and licorice. Curious about therapeutic oils, should they state what they are?
