A.Florence Skincare To The Rescue, again! [pr/affiliate]

Since I was blessed with Rosacea, that's me trying to put a positive spin on it, I suppose I have valued the simple things in skincare life, a product that doesn't irritate and make my skin angry. It stopped me buying product after product,  slowed down my need for the next new kid on the block and ultimately it made me value my face and skin more. Of course, ideally, I'd love not to face the redness, soreness often flaky areas on my face, I'm not obsessed by it, but, I am aware as I edit my YouTube videos that I do apply more base to those obvious areas, so, even subconsciously I am conscious of the change in my skin.

There have been lovely products that have been pleasant and calming for my face, they appear in rotation in my routine, I have prescription Azelaic Acid, which at 15% was quite helpful at 20% it created havoc with my hairline and felt very drying, thereby creating another problem to deal with. Back to 15% and then nothing, well, not for the last week, I stopped with the Azelaic completely, I cleansed my face each evening, balm first, followed by an oil cleanser, I have reintroduced glycolic to my routine, only three times a week, but, it's not causing any issues, so steadily onwards. Then I've been applying a lovely layer of the A. Florence Skin Rehab Rich for compromised skin, the very next day the redness was very subtle, each evening the same routine, with or without the glycolic extra inclusion, it has been a joy, soothing, calming, enriching and my skin looks the better for it.
This is where I must hold my hands up and admit, I didn't take photographs, well, I took them after the event, I know, call myself a blogger, I just felt I wanted a break from the acids and knew this would be good, the brand and the products are sublime, but, I hadn't expected such a high level of results so quickly.

(please check out my YouTube video, where it's clearer to see the skin, the redness, you get the picture)

Skin Rehab Rich is soothing and repairing, this appears to be the case as the days pass after the evenings of application, my skin remains calm and the red areas less angry, the brand website suggests this is a powerful solution for redness, I back that, with my skin's barrier impaired this offers the solution without unnecessary added and useless extra's. Using Omega 3 & 6 Bisabolol - anti-irritant stimulates the healing process and fights bad bacteria amongst many other superpowers, Teprenone - improves dehydrated areas of the skin, improves skin texture and soothes redness, Centella Asiatica - a superb hydrating ingredient that also soothes upset and compromised skin. The cream as a whole supports skin in its recovery, post barrier damage, cosmetic procedures and chronic skin issues.

In the most delightful packing, this hue of pink cream vacates the tube a little like toothpaste, onto the skin it blends softly, absorbs into the skin, leaving a very smooth surface. Although there is no slip with this (there is another version I have just received, this new one may have the slip, keep reading at a later date). Of course, it's the calmness of my skin that is most prevalent for me, I was amazed and continue to be at the gentleness of the product, but, it's amazing healing properties, into my second week of not using Azelaic acid and my skin has never been better, just this beauty every evening. 

This was sent to me, I would without question buy this, it has been more effective than La Roche Posay, Azelaic Acid and Niacinamide, please do know that we are all different and this may not be the case for you. I am also very aware that my skin could at any time decide it doesn't want to be soothed, but, for now, I am in A. Florence heaven.
