    Default Skin Barrier Repair Cream

    Hi

    I have read in several articles that it may be very beneficial for Rosacea skin to use a skin barrier repair cream.

    I would be very much interested in your feedback regarding the following creams, or any other repair product.



    - DERMAdoctor Wrinkle Revenge Rescue & Protect Facial Cream

    - Celfix Cosmeceuticals DNA Ceramide Renewal Nourishing Cream

    - La Roche-Posay Lipikar Syndet

    - CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion/Cream

    - Dermalex repair

    - PRIORI Advanced AHA Barrier Repair Complex with LCA Complex


    Many thanks.

    Default Priori Barrier Repair Complex - review

    Hi GiGi

    In repsonse to your posting (and seeign as no one else has relied) I thought I would give you some feedback on Priori Barrier Repair which I started to use 2 weeks ago. Just a bit about me: I have type 1 Rosacea (Flushing and redness) but no papsules. The Rosacea is largely on my cheeks and nose (which are red and with broken caps). I also have VERY dry skin so have to use a moisturiser. My key concern is flushing (esp in relation to heated rooms which I can't always avoid) and redness. Many products, including those 'designed' for Rosacea, make my cheeks feel itchy and irritate them. Annoyingly I find sunscreens (including physical ones) especially bad. The only thing i can really tolerate in terms of sun protection is Lycogel and I am beginning to wonder if this is because it doesn't occlude skin like other physcial sunscreens??? Anyway, as you may have gathered my skin is somewhat reactive and hates the heat!

    I have found Priori Barrier repair pretty good so far (although it has only been two weeks). The advantages for me are as follows

    1) You hardly need any to properly moisturise. This is the key benefit for me and I confess I do find it quite 'amazing' (maybe that a little strong but you know what I mean). It feels light and non occlusive and yet does the job on extremely dry skin.
    2) It doesn't seem to cause itching or irritation and hence aggravate rosacea. It is much better than many other 'Rosacea' lines i have tried in this respect. Still, we are only at the two week mark...
    3) I can apply Lycogel (foundation) over it without the Lycogel balling up or looking flakey.
    4) It contains anti-oxidants (A,C,E)

    As for cons, well
    1) It is expensive (about 40)
    2) I was concerned that it contains lactic acid (an AHA). Saying this it is at such a low does (1%) suggesting that its purpose is to moisturise (and not exfoliate). I seem to have no problem with it at all (and like most Rosacea sufferers I can't use AHAs on my cheeks). I know this line has much higher strength AHAs for exfoliation but this is the only product recommended for rosacea.
    3) I am still flushing as before but I don't expect a cream to cure flushing as such! I am certainly no worse and maybe a little better as my skin less irritated overall.


    So for now I will stick with it and give more feedback over the next few weeks.

    Best

    xx

    Hi Elos
    As requested an update! I am still using the barrier repair. I have very dry skin and this really does moisturise well (a small amount seems to go a long way). I used to use 'thicker' creams but this moisturisers much better than those. Anyway, my results are as before - slightly better skin after a few weeks. I am still 'theoretically' concerned that there might be some minor irritation (due to the very low amount of lactic acid) but there doesn't seem to be.

    The only other change in my regime is that I am washing my face less (once a day instead of twice) - makes a big differenbce - and started supplements around the same time as the Barrier repair (zinc, broccoraphanin, olive fruit extract etc). These have all really helped (by about 40% I would say).

    In short, if your main concern is dryness then definately give this a try (and give it a couple of weeks). It works really well for that. Just one or two pumps is all you need (perhaps more will irritate?)

    I hope this helps. I would be intersted in how you get on, or if you find anything 'better'.....

    I have a combo skın wıth dry cheeks and a lıttle oıly t zone..no matter whıch product I used ,ı couldn't fınd the rıght product for me..ı have been readıng about the revıews of some products for ages but ıt ıs hard to decıde whıch one to buy..they all offer many thıngs for the skın but when you buy and gıve ıt a try,you see everthıng they saıd ıs a huge lıe...I was so glad you saıd ıt moısturızes very well..thıs was actually what I needed to hear...my problem ıs that ıt absorbs the moıstrızer very quıckly as soon as I apply ıt and feel more drıness than I do before..a beautıcıan saıd ıt ıs just because the product has a lot of water ın ıt and when thıs water evaporates ,ıt also evaporates the water ın the skın and that way the skın drıes....
    When I read about your revıew, I was very happy and thought ıt was tıme to gıve thıs product a chance and at that moment I ordered one...now,
    I am lookıng forward to havıng ıt...hopefully thıs tıme ıt wıll work out...

    Hi again

    I am just catching up on these messages. Elos, I hope you are finding some help from the Priori.....I think everyone is different and while reviews are useful they are subjective (and often people write them after trying a product just once or twice). As for me, I only have dry skin and don't 'break out' (I never know if that means rosacea break out or acne? Either way, I don't have acne or papsules). Aside from the flushing, redness, burning and skin sensitivity from my type 2 rosacea my concern is dryness (I have always had dry skin, even as a child/teen) and that, for me, is where a good moisturiser comes in (I don't beleive any moisturiser can cure rosacea but they can help with dryness and strengthening skin barrier). Priori does work for me in that respect but then again I haven't tried the other barrier repair products on the market.

    As an aside, I have noticed that the best thing for my rosacea and dry skin is simply washing my face less! This makes sense as every time you wash you strip the skin barrier. I suppose this is difficult if you have combination skin but 'doing nothing' seems to help when you have dry skin!! I am aiming to wash my face (well my cheeks where the rosacea is bad) just every other day - the best thing about this is that it doesn't cost anything and actually saves me money! Anyone else tried this??!
