I have a lot of redness in my cheeks area and the only foundation that completley camouflaged it was KatVonD =)

Hi, Carmen! I ended up responding in your all encompassing skin care regimen thread:

 

http://community.sephora.com/t5/Ask-The-Experts/Skincare-Options/m-p/707133#M16933

 

There's suggestions in there for dark circles, acne scars, and redness.

 

Some of the eye cream concerns and products I suggestion in the thread above for you are also covered here if you want more product info!

For hyper pigmentation (acne scars) clinique Even better is really good! My mom used to have a lot of hyper pigmentation and it really helped her (:     (its 63 dollars, I'm Canadian also)swfupload_6516606412123208126.jpg

Haha yeah, no problem (:  That commercial yeah I saw it hundreds of time, I think its gone forever now, but I just wanted to share my mom story (: Also if you use a product to remove acne scars / hyperpigmentation don't forget to protect you're skin with sunscreen when you go out! Its really important

Hi, Carmen!  For redness and hyperpigmentation, I use First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Serum ($44).  It's the first serum I've used and the first time I've tried to do anything for the hyperpigmentation in my pitted cystic acne scars.  I wasn't expecting it to do anything.  Wow!  What a surprise when it actually worked!  It reduced the hyperpigmentation by at least 80%.  It also calmed the redness in my face, but by more like 35%.  I highly recommend the FAB Facial Radiance Serum.

Hey Titian,

 

I will have to look into this product as well. It sounds like a wonderful product.

Wonders for acne scars, I got a smaller size of this for free by emailing Murad directly:

MURAD Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel - $60

Re: Dark Circles, Redness, Acne Scars

I would treat dark circles separately from the redness & acne scars. A lot of face treatments are too strong for the delicate eye area. 

I like to use a Vitamin C serum in the morning, like OH Truth Serum to help fade acne scars and fight off free radicals.

I don't know if you're dry, or oily, but I really love my sample of Caudalie Vinoperfect serum, and it might replace my Truth Serum for the winter when my skin is really dry.

As for Dark Circles, I don't really have them, so I can't help you there, but I have seen a lot of people discuss them on BT. Just search for it here and I'm sure you'll find a lot of recommendations. :smileywink:

I second use of vitamin C, specifically the Truth Serum. 

 

I found it highly effective in fading those pesky discolorations which tended to hang around on my chin after breakouts.
