Review - Eau Thermale Avene Redness Relief Soothing Cream

Light green cream neutralizes redness as a trio of ingredients help minimize redness. Sun protection helps protect against environmental exposure.
• Formulate with Avène Thermal spring water to soothe and soften• Ruscus extract combined with other redness reducing ingredients helps minimize redness and blotchiness• Sun protection helps prevent future rednessLight green tint offers redness neutralization.

One of my friends gave me several samples of this cream. It is an extremely pale green cream which you can use over any red that you are trying to offset. I use green concealer so I know that green is used for the purpose of covering up red areas. I find that it blends in more than my concealers so that it doesn't cover as well. However, it does soothe the skin as it says while at the same time protecting it with its spf 25. In their line of products they carry spf 50 which I intend to investigate further. My only problem with this cream is its scent which is rather strong. It does die down a bit after a while. I am not sure how to describe it -- sort of like a medicine smell, perhaps. It is a drawback to me as I am using it on my forehead -- how much closer to my nose can I get?? - it is just too close to the old sniffer!! I would love to be able to continue to use it as it works wonderfully but the scent just gets to me. If there is a way to neutralize the scent that anyone knows -- please pass it along. I bet the scent would not be a detraction to many people. I am super sensitive to different scents.
