Ciracle Anti-Redness K is a soothing line for rosacea and sensitive, couperose-prone skin.
The line not only soothes and reduces irritation and dryness but also reduces redness.
These products will work for any skin type with the following issues:
Thin and sensitive
Dry, easily irritated
Prone to redness
Prone to couperose veins
I have combination skin that’s reactive and prone to redness.
I chose a toner and lotion from this line. I decided not to order the cream as it’s advertised as being for dry and very dry skin.
Anti-Redness K Solution toner
Clear, very thick, gel-like, with a pronounced herbal aroma. I apply a small amount to the face and neck.
It’s absorbed immediately without a trace. Because of the thickness, it’s quite economical.
Anti-Redness K Lotion
A milky-white lotion with soft and gentle consistency. Not greasy. The scent is sweet and herbal. Easy to apply to the skin, gets absorbed quickly. I would say that it sort of envelops the skin, making it more resilient and velvety to the touch. The feeling is very pleasant.
Overall, I like the toner and the lotion. I’ve been using them once a day in the evening for about a month and a half.
The immediately soften and soothe the skin.
Hydrate excellently without leaving a film on the face.
They really do reduce redness and even out the skin tone. I hope the effect is cumulative.
Both products are packaged in small bottles with a nozzle. I don’t like this pharmacy-like packaging. There are no problems with the toner, but the lotion has to be forcibly squeezed out through the narrow opening and stored upside down.
Small size – only 30ml. With frugal use, it will last no more than two months.
I didn’t find vitamin K in the ingredients, but the product description says that vitamin K1 is present in the natural plant extracts in this line. The products work, so it’s probably actually in them :) But the ingredients do list Bisabolol – an ingredient derived from medicinal chamomile.
Bisabolol is famous in cosmetology as an effective anti inflammatory ingredient, reducing any irritation and skin redness, regardless of their source.
Squalane – olive-oil derived ingredients. Has a softening, healing and anti inflammatory effects. Squalane is used in products for topical treatment of inflammatory skin conditions. Squalane has the ability to penetrate deeply into the skin, carrying with it the elements of other ingredients.
And more than 15 healing herbal oil extracts, specially chosen for sensitive skin. For example, licorice root extract whiten the skin, has an anti inflammatory effect, soothes irritated skin, reduces swelling and strengthens capillary walls.
Centella Asiatica extract is a strong antioxidant and anti inflammatory ingredients. Inflammation heals faster without forming post acne marks and spots.
Centella strengthens capillaries and improves circulation, which significantly improves connective tissue elasticity. So it effectively works as a couperose prevention product.
