If you’ve got rosacea-prone skin and are looking for some gentle and non-irritating products, you’ll love my Skinician review.

Rosacea can be really annoying. When I have a flare-up, not only does my skin look red, but it can also feel hot to the touch. It’s not fun and can take a little while to calm down. So having a gentle skincare routine that works for my rosacea is absolutely paramount to keep any redness at bay.

And that’s where Skinician comes in.

I’ve been trying 3 products from the brand’s Revitalising line, specifically designed for sensitive and/or rosacea-prone skin. But just how good is this range for my skin? Is it a good choice for people with rosacea, or is it another generic skincare line? Keep reading for my honest Skinician review.

What is Skinician?

Skinician was founded by former salon owners, making it their mission to provide accessible and resourceful products for people like mums and professionals with limited time. 

Every product in the SKINICIAN range stars a nourishing cocktail of actives, 90% of which are naturally derived.


The brand prides itself in its multifunctional products, meaning people can skip out on the 15-step skincare routine at night and just stick to what is best for them. It has a helpful skin analyser quiz too with product recommendations for specific skin types and concerns.

All Skinician products are vegan, cruelty-free, and have 80% recyclable packaging.

What Skinician products did I receive?

I received the following 3 Skinician products to review:

  1. Revitalising Cleanser
  2. Revitalising Day Moisturiser
  3. Revitalising Toner

Below, I’m going to break down the product claims, whether the products meet their claims, a look at the INCI lists, and my honest thoughts on each individual product.

1. Skinician Revitalising Cleanser

£19 for 200ml

Skinician Revitalising Cleanser image

Product claims

The Skinician Revitalising Cleanser claims to be a gentle and soothing milk cleanser that thoroughly cleanses without drying out the skin. This cleanser can be used on the eyes, according to the brand. The cleanser promises to be a particularly good option for people with sensitive skin, as it leaves the skin hydrated and cleansed with reduced sensitivity after use.

Key ingredients

Excluding water, the top 5 ingredients on the INCI list are:

  • Propylene glycol: a humectant (preserves or retains moisture) that can enhance the delivery of key actives into skin
  • Glycerin: hydrates the skin
  • Stearic acid: an emollient (softens or soothes skin) and cleansing agent
  • Grape seed oil: a non-fragrant emollient plant oil that has a less greasy texture compared to other oils
  • Glyceryl stearate: an emollient

See the full INCI list below:

Aqua (Water), Propylene Glycol (hydrating), Glycerin (moisturising), Stearic Acid (emollient/softening), Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil(cleansing/antioxidant/hydrating), Glyceryl Stearate (skin conditioning), Parfum (Fragrance), Xanthan Gum (thickener), Sodium Hydroxide (cleansing), Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (Green Tea– antioxidant), Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract (Chamomile – anti-inflammatory), Benzyl Alcohol (preservative), Dehydroacetic Acid (preservative), Potassium Sorbate (preservative), Sodium Benzoate (preservative)


I enjoy the Skinician Revitalising Cleanser.

This cleanser is gentle and hydrating. It never feels stripping or harsh on my skin, and it effectively removes dirt or oil on my skin. I use this as my morning or second cleanse. I prefer something with an oilier/balmier texture for my first cleanse in the evening to really break down any makeup, SPF, dirt, or grease on my skin.

This is definitely a good choice for my sensitive skin. As it washes away very easily, I’m not left rubbing product off my skin, which can contribute to redness.

While I don’t think this cleanser actively contributes to reducing redness, it doesn’t spark a rosacea flare-up either, so I definitely appreciate that.

This cleanser is fragranced, though. If you’re sensitive to perfumed skincare or prefer fragrance-free skincare, that’s something to be mindful of. It would be great if Skinician came out with a fragrance-free version of the Revitalising Cleanser to cater for more people.

While I like this cleanser, I typically prefer cleansers that work into a creamy (but not foamy or stripping) lather. That’s just a texture and sensation experience preference rather than a criticism! But I wish this cleanser worked into a creamy lather, as I just love that feeling.

Rating: 4 stars

This is a good cleanser for my rosacea-prone skin that makes my skin feel hydrated after use.

2. Skinician Revitalising Day Moisturiser

£25 for 50ml

Skinician Revitalising Day Moisturiser image

Product claims

The Skinician Revitalising Day Moisturiser claims to be a deeply hydrating moisturiser with SPF30 that relieves dryness and soothes skin sensitivity. 

It strikes the perfect balance between being a gentle and natural product while containing some concentrated actives that are clinically proven to increase skin hydration and give a healthy glow. 


This moisturiser is supposed to work on three levels: to thoroughly hydrate and nourish skin, soothe irritation, and repair the skin barrier. With SPF30, the moisturiser also enhances UV protection. Although it contains SPF, the moisturiser promises that it doesn’t leave your skin looking greasy, shiny, or chalky.

Key ingredients

Excluding water, the top 5 ingredients on the INCI list are:

  • Cetearyl alcohol: a gentle emollient
  • Shea butter ethyl esters: an emollient that’s designed to feel lighter and silkier than pure shea butter
  • Bis-PEG-18 methyl ether dimethyl silane: a skin-conditioning agent and moisturiser
  • Caprylic/capric triglyceride: an emollient and skin-replenishing ingredient
  • Dimethicone: an emollient that helps skin feel silky

See the full INCI list below:

Aqua (Water), Cetearyl Alcohol (softener), Shea Butter Ethyl Esters (anti-inflammatory/ moisturising), Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane (hydrating), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (softening), Dimethicone (hydrating), Glycerin (moisturising), Glyceryl Stearate SE (binding agent), Prunus Persica (Peach) Kernel Oil (nourishing), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice (soothing), Cetearyl Glucoside (texture-enhancing), Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane (sunscreen), Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate (sunscreen), Saccharide Isomerate (Pentavitin™ – hydrating/protecting), Parfum (Fragrance), Butylene Glycol (hydrating), Octocrylene (sunscreen), Tocopheryl Acetate (vitamin E- antioxidant), Xanthan Gum (thickener), Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (hydrating), Lecithin (softening/antioxidant), Hydroxyethylcellulose (texture enhancing), Sodium Hydroxide (cleansing), Citric Acid (antioxidant), Benzyl Alcohol (preservative), Phenoxyethanol (stabiliser), Dehydroacetic Acid (preservative), Potassium Sorbate (preservative), Sodium Benzoate (preservative), Linalool (natural fragrance), Limonene (natural fragrance / antioxidant), Geraniol (natural fragrance).


Out of all of the Skinician products in this review, the Revitalising Day Moisturiser is my favourite.

This is everything I want in a moisturiser: lightweight and absorbent, creamy without feeling greasy, intensely hydrating, makes my skin feel soft and smooth, imparts a slight healthy shine, and has added UV protection.

I also love that this moisturiser feels pretty soothing. If my skin is feeling warm, this has a slight cooling sensation that I enjoy. My rosacea gets on well with this moisturiser.

The added UV protection is a bonus for me. Even though you should always apply a dedicated SPF on top of products that may already contain SPF, the SPF boost in the moisturiser just gives me that added reassurance that my skin is protected from the sun. I can confirm that the SPF within the moisturiser is invisible and doesn’t leave an ashy cast.

This moisturiser is quite heavily fragranced. I personally enjoy perfumed skincare, so this is no biggie for me, but it’s something to be mindful of if you’re sensitive to fragrance. Although the scent is quite strong on application, it doesn’t linger on the skin for longer than a minute.

Rating: 4.5 stars

The Revitalising Day Moisturiser is a great moisturiser that’s easy to apply and feels lovely on my skin.

3. Skinician Revitalising Toner

£19 for 200ml

Product claims

The Skinician Revitalising Toner promises to brighten, hydrate, and soothe skin sensitivity. After using this toner, your skin should feel calm and replenished, according to the brand.

We created this product as a go-to for anyone looking for a toner for dry skin, rosacea and other sensitive skin types. 


The alcohol-free toner also claims to reduce redness, nourish the skin, and repair the skin barrier. It promises to be great for those with dry, combination, and sensitive skin.

Key ingredients

Excluding water, the top 5 ingredients on the INCI list are:

  • Glycerin: hydrates the skin
  • Propylene glycol: a humectant that can enhance the delivery of key actives into skin
  • Polysorbate 20: a mild cleansing agent
  • Panthenol: a humectant that can also help to reduce sensitivity-induced redness in skin
  • Disodium cocoamphodiacetate: a mild cleansing agent

See the full INCI list below:

Aqua (Water),Glycerin (moisturising), Propylene Glycol (hydrating), Polysorbate 20 (emulsifier), Panthenol (pro vitamin B5 – moisturising/soothing), Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate (cleansing), Parfum (Fragrance), Sodium PCA (hydrating), Allantoin (soothing), Citric Acid (antioxidant), Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C – antioxidant/brightening), Sodium Chloride (thickener), Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein (firming) , Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract (anti-inflammatory/soothing), PVP (water binding), Sodium Benzoate (preservative), Potassium Sorbate (preservative), Linalool (natural fragrance), Limonene (natural fragrance / antioxidant).


I’m enjoying the Skinician Revitalising Toner. Whenever my skin needs an instant pick-me-up, I reach for this hydrating facial spray.

This toner instantly nourishes and soothes the skin. It’s super calming and revitalising, so if I’m having a rosacea flare-up, this spray quickly relaxes my skin. While I don’t think this particularly reduces skin redness, it soothes my skin when it’s feeling a bit angry, which I appreciate.

I particularly love the convenience of this toner. Even if my skin isn’t feeling sensitive, it’s a great way to lock in some extra moisture and energise my skin. Plus, the mister is very fine, so the product distributes evenly and easily across my skin. I love fine spritzes!

I wouldn’t say this toner particularly delivers brightening effects, but I have other products in my skincare routine that effectively do that, so I don’t care.

Again, this product also has perfume. Just something to be aware of!

Rating: 4 stars

Overall Skinician review

Skinician rosacea skincare products image

Overall, I’m impressed with my Skinician products.

The packaging is great. For the Revitalising line, the pink, grey, and white colour scheme is very modern and sleek. The packaging is functional and convenient. Plus, the products look great on my #SkincareShelfie.

These products sit at a mid-price point. They’re not drugstore prices, but they’re not high-end either. Personally, I think the prices are very reasonable. The INCI lists are high-quality, and the toner and cleanser come in big bottles.

Also, the website is super easy to follow. If you’re new to skincare, Skinician isn’t overwhelming at all. The products and how they work for different skin types and conditions are all very well explained online. Making the information simple and understandable is really helpful in such a saturated market!

Overall, I feel that these Skinician are good for rosacea. I can definitely say that these products are gentle enough for my rosacea. I’ve experienced no irritation, additional redness, or increased sensitivity with the products. While I don’t feel that these products particularly treat rosacea, they definitely don’t aggravate it. I think people with sensitive skin will get on well with these products, except if you’re sensitive to fragrance!

Actually, that would be my only criticism: the fragrance. I personally enjoy perfumed skincare. However, some fragrance-free alternatives would help cater to more people, as not only are some people sensitive to perfumed products, but some people simply don’t like them.

However, what I love about these products is that they’re all hydrating, moisturising, and soothing. My skin is immediately hydrated, calmed, and softer when using these products. It feels as though my skin is in great condition after using Skinician products.
