Oh, my. My licorice extract came today and I *think* (no going out on a limb yet) I really like the stuff. I mixed a drop in with my regular moisturizer. Several hours after one application, the stinging/burning in my face went away and the redness came down. Several areas with bumps cleared up. I know I've spoken too soon about products before, but I really think this might be good for my skin. Time will tell.
It wouldn't surprise me if it works for me because the first product I ever used for my rosacea that helped (before I saw my doctor and got diagnosed and given metrogel) was the eucerin redness relief line with licorice in it.
