This is one of the rare Clinique misses for me, but I think it's my fault. It turns out I don't have rosacea, but just very dry skin that was in need of hydration and moisture. So for me, this cream is just a moisturizer. It works well enough, but I like several other Clinique moisturizers better. I'd recommend you get a diagnosis from a dermatologist or consult with a Clinique advisor before buying this cream if you aren't sure you have rosacea.
