REN Evercalm Anti-Redness Serum


If you're following my blog for quite some time now, you know that I've been suffering from break outs for the past few months now, which has left my skin very sore and sensitive (read: red). So when I was browsing the Net for something that could possibly make life easier, I bumped into the REN Evercalm Anti-Redness Serum. Something that would make the red blotches on my face appear less, well... red.

Although it is named an anti-redness serum, besides that, it protects your skin from ageing through sensitivity. It also improves your skin tone, it reduces inflammation, redness, it strengthens the capillary walls, boosts hydration levels, reduces UV inflammation, and protect cells when used over a longer period of time. It's a long list of promises, but not an empty one which is all that matters.

Not to be confused with an anti-redness primer —this is not a cosmetic product, but a skincare product. What I've noticed is that unlike a primer, it doesn't fade the redness immediately, but overtime and even overnight it calms my skin a lot, which we can credit to Milk Polypetide which is the ingredient that calms redness and inflammation by strengthening the skin's lipid barrier and combined with Beta Glucan, it soothes the skin irritation as well.

Overtime it should reduce redness and a certain protein from rice promotes natural skin repair and Tyronsinase helps to decongest the skin and reduce hyper pigmentation. I personally haven't noticed any (major) fading of my hyper pigmentation just yet, but redness around my nose, brows or just random splotches have reduced significantly. This is most probably because of the hydration boost this serum gives, as it contains Hyaluronic Acid, which is an ingredient I seek for in my skincare. Buh-bye redness and hello plump and better skin!


Do you suffer from redness?

  1. I have used this serum and really like it, in fact the whole Evercalm range is amazing especially the cleanser. I use a nourish serum which is a great dupe and is a lot cheaper at the moment but will go back to REN at some point :) Xx

    1. I love this and their F10 Smooth & Renew Mask, which I've reviewed recently. Nourish is a lovely brand as well, I've tried their Argan Oil, which is lovely.

  2. Sounds like a product I should have in the bathroom for those days when you get these inexplicable red areas, and mine are always in the most unattractive places like tip of my nose - talk about Rudolph! Xx

    1. I will keep you posted! I've never tried anything from Dermatological... not sure they've got it here in Europe.

  7. So this was posted a year ago; did it work long term? Ive developed terrible redness on my face and don't know why. The only thing I can think of is I had been on antibiotics for acne and it seems I got real red when I got taken off the drugs. My acne has been under control with Ahava Mud Soap of all things (after a decade of dermatologists and expensive prescriptions or irritating over the counter acne medications) but the redness is out of control. Every brand claims anti redness and nothing seems to work. I came across REN so was wondering...Thers another brand called Medik8 but not sure...These products are expensive. The store I can buy REN at has free returns so I guess Ill try that. The Medik8 is more expensive. Sadly dermatologists are pretty useless because they only recommend products they sell and that doesnt make them any better; often, you can find them online for less anyway

  8. This is a tough one, as I haven't used it for a long while, but I know my mum still loves it. She's got super sensitive skin and she does find it helps to calm down the redness in her skin, but it by all means doesn't 'get rid' of all the redness. I'd say give it a go if your budget permits you to buy it, as a free returns policy is always good – just in case. Skincare is super personal, so something that works for me, may not work for you and vice versa. The redness may also come from over-sensitivity of the skin, which can be aggravated through soap/SLS, so maybe you could try using a more gentle cleanser and that may help?

    I know Medik8 is quite potent and scientific, so that may be a quicker solution than REN, which is more a natural, nasties-free brand. My dermatologist just tells me to keep swallowing the antibiotics, so yeah... He's pretty useless too.
