Skin Care Review: Clinique CX Rapid Recovery Cream

by Karlynn, IL


Reduces redness in stressed skin.


Being in my mid 40's, I have been having some troubling skin issues due to change in hormones. My cheeks were getting red, rough and bumpy. The bumps were like tiny pimples. Breakouts on my chin would leave redness and scarring long after the blemish was gone. My cheeks always felt irritated. I had tried many acne products and irritation relieveing product to no avail. The purchase of this rather pricey product was my last attempt before going to a dermatologist. I purchased the CX Rapid Recovery Cream because it was recommended to relieve stressed skin after surgical procedures. Because I felt that my skin was under continueal stress I decided to give this cream a try, with every intention of returning the product if it didn't work in a few weeks. I began using a small pea sized amount of the product in the a.m. and p.m. Within a week, my cheeks had lost their redness and the breakouts had significantly deminished. The redness and scarring from recent blemishes on my chin were practically gone.

I continue to use this product once a day to maintain the de-stressing I believe it provides. After speaking with a Clinique makeup artist I found that they do not claim that this product works for what I was experiencing, but were glad to hear that I had such success. Since then, I have purchased a bottle for my 19 year-old daughter and she is having success with it reducing the redness and duration of her blemishes.

I highly recommend this product for anyone experience rough, red skin caused by stress.
