I have redness in my cheeks and around my nose, its not acne redness just blemishes and it does reduce and eliminate that. Fast? Kind of I mean I can tell a difference with in a week or two of using it. And if I remember to use it everyday or at least every other day the redness stays away. If I forget to use it for say a week or so the redness will return and it will take about a week of using it to get rid of the redness again.
