Great alternative to pricey Azelaic Acid products

Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Rosacea, Sensitive Skin, Uneven Skin Tone, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

I have rosacea, and it has always been a struggle finding products that help even my skin tone and that my sensitive skin can handle. I've known for a while that Azelaic Acid is one of the best products for my skin, as I've used Finacea in the past. However, Finacea can cost upwards of $200 these days for a small tube, so I needed to find an alternative that wouldn't aggravate my skin. With all the buzz lately about The Ordinary, I decided to try their Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%. When I first put it on (I use it at night, after I've cleansed but before I put on moisturizer), I noticed that the texture was very silky, and the product is so easy to apply. I just dab it in the spots I need it most, then spread it across my face. After only two weeks of using it, I noticed that the redness of my cheeks had faded a little, and some of my acne scarring was starting to fade as well! It's been several weeks now that I've used it, and the results just keep getting better and better. The only downside I've noticed is that sometimes, I'll get some small whiteheads after using this product on my cheeks (particularly near my nose). I'm wondering if that's due to the silicon base - not sure, though. In any case, a few tiny whiteheads...that's a small price to pay for the benefit of clearer skin. I've added this to my regular nighttime routine, and I'm excited to try more products from The Ordinary!
