You may have noticed recently that I started mentioning Revitol Rosacea on the site. You see, a few weeks back I was contacted by Anne, who used to suffer from severe Rosacea. She went on to explain her story with how she discovered Revitol Rosacea and used it successfully to clear up her skin.
I was so touched by her story, and how well the cream had worked, I had to find out more. So I asked if I could interview her and let her share her story with everyone. She gladly accepted…
Before we get into the interview, here are some quick facts about Revitol Rosacea cream.
What is it?
Revitol Rosacea is an all-natural cream specially formulated to help reduce rosacea.
Who is it made by? Reputation?
Revitol, a health and beauty company that specializes in natural skin care products to treat all sorts of skin conditions – like acne, psoriasis, stretch marks, and even rosacea. Having been around since 2002, Revitol has become a trusted skin care brand.
What makes it different to other creams?
Compared to over-the-counter (and even some prescription) creams, Revitol Rosacea contains no “cheap” ingredients or irritants that could make your rosacea worse.
Ideal for who?
Anyone with sensitive skin, or has not benefited from the mainstream rosacea products on the market.
How does it work?
According to Revitol, their cream works in 4 ways:
- Anti-bacterial agents – kill germs on the surface and prevent infections from flaring up your rosacea.
- Natural anti-inflammatories – shrink blood vessels near your skin’s surface, which reduces redness and flushing.
- Collagen booster – heals damaged skin and makes it more resilient to rosacea.
- Sensitive ingredients – regulate your skin’s natural oils, to create a natural defense against environmental factors that cause rosacea.
How long does it take to work?
According to Anne:
- 3 weeks: redness fades, but still noticeable; small visible blood vessels shrink.
- 4 weeks: small red bumps start healing; skin still red, but smoother.
- 40 days: redness almost gone; hard damaged skin feels much softer and healing.
- 4 months: rosacea completely gone; skin has healthy complexion with even skin tone.
- And beyond?: continue to be free from rosacea; skin remains supple and smooth.
How is it best used?
According to Anne, best used in conjunction with some sort of lifestyle change or rosacea diet. But can easily be used on its own once your Rosacea clears up.
Other users have found a reduction in their rosacea symptoms after using the cream on its own.
Any side-effects or contraindications?
No reported side-effects. However, your skin may itch for the first 3 to 4 days as the antibacterial agents fight off infection caused from surface bacteria.
How much does it cost?
As little as $33 per month (with their “2 free jars” bulk discount).
Any guarantee or refund policy?
Unopened jars can be returned for a full-refund.
Where is it available?
Online, at the official website.
Rita: Hi Anne, thanks for taking the time for letting me interview you.
Anne: My pleasure Rita. I’m just so glad to be able to share my story on your site. Thank you for the opportunity.
Rita: You’re welcome. I’m sure many people out there will benefit by what you have to say.
Anne: And I hope they do.
Rita: So what made you decide to use a cream to clear up your rosacea?
Anne: Rita, I know that your site focuses mainly on natural ways to get rid of rosacea. Like through various lifestyle changes and eating certain foods. But I was not that keen on having to go on some sort of diet to treat my rosacea.
Anne: I mean, my eating habits are quite healthy. And they haven’t really changed that much over the past 20 years. (I’m 45 now). So if food was the cause, then why was I only getting Rosacea now, as opposed to 10 or 20 years ealier? It just didn’t really make sense to me.
Anne: Reluctantly, I did actually go on a rosacea diet. And it did help some, but I felt that I needed more. That is why I decided to use a rosacea cream too. I thought the 2 treatments would complement each other perfectly.
Rita: I see. So why the Revitol Rosacea Cream? I remember you saying in your email that it’s only available online. Why didn’t you simply get some over-the-counter cream, or get a prescription from your dermatologist?
Anne: Rita, you’re not the first person to ask me that. Believe me, I tried a bunch of the so-called “best” over-the-counter creams, gels and lotions on the market. You name it I tried it. Just about all of them had irritants and other poor ingredients in them, that often made my rosacea worse.
Rita: That’s what I also experienced when I was looking for a rosacea cream those many months ago. None of them gave me the relief I needed.
Anne: And when I did eventually move onto prescription creams, I was happy at first…But the results weren’t lasting…And I couldn’t afford to pay so much money to use the cream every month.
Anne: Yes, there are cheaper prescription creams on the market, but they usually contain irritants that caused my rosacea to flare up. You’d think that because it’s a prescription cream…and the dermatologist recommends it…that it would be safe to use, but that is often not the case.
Rita: If I were you, I would have given up on using a rosacea cream. What made you decide to keep looking?
Anne: I actually came across Revitol Rosacea by pure chance. I was searching a forum, looking for info on all-natural rosacea products. I remember seeing someone talk about this new cream by Revitol that happened to help with his Rosacea. So I decided to do a bit of research into the product and the company.
Anne: I read reviews, I took notes of the ingredients in the cream, and then did more research on each ingredient. I even looked for any info about known side-effects that people had experienced. You could say that I did a full background check on Revitol and their Rosacea Cream before deciding to buy my first batch.
Rita: Wow. That’s sounds like quite a bit of work. But I guess you have to be safe about these things when buying online.
Anne: Yes. It did take time. But it was worth it.
Rita: And I’m guessing that Revitol passed your “background check”, since you did end up ordering some?
Anne: Well, yes. Since the product was relatively new, there wasn’t a great deal of information about Revitol Rosacea out there. But I did learn enough about it, that I was ready to give it a go.
Rita: So how did you find using the cream?
Anne: After placing my order, it actually arrived rather quickly. I think it was like 2 days.
Rita: Wow. That’s quick. And how much of the cream did you order?
Anne: I went with one of their bulk discount offers. I think it was 6 jars in total. I know I could have just got a 1 month supply. But I told myself – “If this stuff does not help my Rosacea at all, then I can simply send the unused creams back for a refund. But if it really does work, well, Great! I just saved myself over $100!”
Anne: During my first week of using Revitol Rosacea, I almost regretted purchasing it.
Rita: Oh…Why was that?
Anne: It looked like it was making my rosacea worse. My skin was itchy, and much redder than normal. I thought that I must be allergic to one of the ingredients or something. But then I remember reading about other people experiencing the exact same thing. They said that the itchiness wore off after the first 4 to 7 days, and then their rosacea started to clear up…
Anne: So I decided to “ride out” that first week too, and I’m glad I did. By the 7th day, the itchiness had just about gone, and by the end of the second week, my rosacea started to clear.
Anne: I’m really not sure what caused that initial redness and itching, but I like to think that it was from the antibacterial agents in the cream…fighting the infection and starting the healing process. Much like what happens when a graze or cut starts to heal after you clean and disinfect it.
Rita: So the initial research paid off, it seems?
Anne: Yes. It did. It gave me the courage and faith to continue with the treatment.
Anne: As the weeks went by my Rosacea started to clear up. More and more. I wish I had taken photos of myself, documenting my progress. But I was too embarrassed at the time!
Rita: That would have been great for us to see. But maybe you can describe how your rosacea started to clear?
Anne: Well, first of all, as I said earlier, the itching started, then gradually stopped.
Anne: At the start of the third week, the redness on my cheeks and forehead started to fade slightly, but was still very noticeable. It also looked like the small visible blood vessels on my cheeks started to shrink.
Anne: By the fourth week, my redness continued to fade. It was about the same color as if I had been in the hot sun for a few minutes. It looked sun-blushed, but much smoother, as some of the small red bumps started to heal.
Anne: By day 40, that’s when I really started to notice the difference. The redness had just about faded completely. And the hard, damaged skin where my Rosacea once was, started to soften and rejuvenate. It must have been the collagen boosting ingredients in the cream starting to do their magic.
Anne: My face was far from being completely clear, but it looked and felt a LOT better! My family and friends also started noticing the difference. And they encouraged me to keep going.
Rita: Yes. It’s important to get your loved ones involved so that they understand your situation and can give you their support…
Anne: I’m lucky to have them in my life.
Rita: So how long did it take you to get rid of your rosacea then?
Anne: Well, I decided that I would continue with the treatment until I ran out of cream. I wasn’t getting any side-effects from using it. In fact, my skin was a lot more supple and smooth. This made it the perfect replacement to my previous face cream. So there was no real point to stop using it.
Anne: So how long until I was “rosacea free”? I would say by the 4th month, it was hard for anyone to tell that I had ever had rosacea. In fact, I started to get compliments from perfect strangers on my even skin tone and smooth, “young” face. Little did they know what hell I had been through a few months before…
Rita: Wow. That’s amazing! It took quite some time, but I guess it was well worth it…based on all the positive feedback.
Anne: You know Rita, 4 months is really not that long, if you think that it gives you a lifetime of pleasure…
Anne: …I mean not only did it get rid of those hideous red bumps, those unsightly blood vessels, and that sore rough skin…but it helped me feel good about myself again, and more confident around others. It really has changed my life for the better.
Rita: So, the million dollar question…Do you still use Revitol Rosacea cream?
Anne: Yes. I still use the cream. In fact, my second 6 month-supply of it arrived just the other day. I really don’t have any reason to stop using it. I mean, for about the same price as my previous facial cream, I get smooth, soft skin, AND it stays free from rosacea!
Rita: And would you say that it is a “cure” as such?
Anne: Well, I wouldn’t go that far. You see, since I have been using it daily for the past 6 months, I don’t know how my skin will react if I ever stopped applying it. Personally I don’t really want to take that chance.
Rita: Anne, you mentioned earlier that you use Revitol Rosacea along with a rosacea diet. Do you think it would it have been as effective if you used the cream on its own?
Anne: I can’t really say, Rita. I wanted to get rid of my Rosacea as quickly and effectively as possible, which is why I combined the two treatments. However, I have eased off the diet slightly and allowed myself to eat the foods I love. So far, my rosacea hasn’t come back, so I’ll continue to “ween” myself off the diet, and see how it goes.
Rita: Well, thanks for your honesty, Anne. It’s always nice to hear about how people overcame their rosacea. I think you’ve answered just about every question I had about Revitol Rosacea.
Rita: Thanks again for letting me interview you, and for sharing your experience with the rest of us.
Anne: My pleasure, Rita. And if you have anymore questions, I’ll be glad to answer them.
Rita: Thanks, Anne. Good-bye.
I really enjoyed having this interview with Anne. It just shows you – that with a little determination, you will find an effective treatment for rosacea. In Anne’s case, she used natural treatments in the form of diet and a cream to become rosacea-free.
