A Review of Botanical Therapy Products and IngredientsRosacea is a tough condition to have. Sure, there are topical and oral medications your dermatologist can prescribe, but many work well for a year or two, but then they lose their effectiveness.

Botanical treatments are gaining ground among rosacea sufferers. I recently had the pleasure of testing out Botanical Therapy's Facial Serum for Rosacea. Here's what I found.
A Closer Look at What's in Botanical Therapy's Facial SerumThe rosacea serum contains nothing that generally irritates my sensitive skin.

It comes in a one-ounce bottle that has an eye dropper. It's easy to use. Simply spread five drops on the afflicted areas twice a day.
