Sente has collaborated with leading scientists to develop skincare products proven to be safe and effective for anyone seeking healthy skin. They use rigorous clinical studies to drive product innovation and development of their products.
Their HSA Technology uses heparan sulfate, a "master molecule for age management," according to the Sente website, in a low molecular weight formation. HSA is essential for skin hydration and rejuvenation. It also diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin tone and texture.
The Redness Control Complex specifically works to balance red skin with minor irritation to create a smooth and even complexion. I was so excited to try this because nothing I had used prior ever worked to really balance out my skin tone.
I used the Redness Control Complex for a month and was very happy with the results after the first two weeks. The product comes in a one ounce bottle with an airtight pump dispenser. I used a pea-sized amount after washing my face and applying toner, since I was only putting this on my cheeks. The consistency is that of your average facial moisturizer -- a white cream that spreads evenly and doesn't feel heavy on the skin. The instructions advise to use sunscreen after applying this during the day.
As I said, after using this for two weeks my redness was almost gone! I couldn't believe that this was actually working, simply because nothing had worked before. I continued to use it for the full month, though, since I like to try out skincare for that long to see how it really works with my skin. Unfortunately, after a month I felt like my redness had returned. I'm not really sure why; maybe it had something to do with the other skincare products I was using in conjunction with this. I suspect it had something to do with the SPF moisturizer I was using, because it was different than the one I was using prior to using the Redness Control Complex.
Here are my before and after photos. I'm embarrassed to have these shots of my face, sans makeup, online, but I figured it was important to show you the results! As you can see, I have clear red patches on my cheeks and also a bit on my nose in the "before" shots. Now that I look at these side by side, the redness is still there in the "after" shots, but it looks less prominent.
