Serozinc by La Roche-Posay review

I don't know about you but when there's hype around a beauty product, I usually tend to wait until that's subsided then think about trying it. Serozinc has been hailed as a 'skin saviour' for so long now and the praise doesn't seem to be fading. Always looking for new additions to my routine, I decided to give it a try and today I'll be sharing my review!

Serozinc by La Roche-Posay review
A little bit of background info about my skin to preface this review would probably be handy! I have combination skin so some parts of my face get oily while other parts have dryness to deal with. I feel lucky to have never had to deal with big problematic breakouts (so far anyway, touch wood) but I do often get a few small spots appearing here and there which, needless to say, are never welcome. I do my best to prevent them but sometimes they're just inevitable and there began my hunt to find something that would help get rid!

I ordered Serozinc, my first dabble into the brand La Roche-Posay almost two months ago when it was on offer on Feel Unique. It usually costs £8.50 which I initially thought was a wee bit steep. How wrong I was. Having discovered the effects I now consider it to be absolutely justified. I seriously hope they don't ever bump up the price due to it's popularity! Anyway, onto what it actually does.


It's a simple solution of water, zinc sulfate and sodium chloride. Yup, salt. You spray the toner on and it works to both fight/fix blemishes while also soaking up excess oil and let me tell you, it shrinks spots like nobody's business. No faffing around, it just gets to work. Obviously it doesn't make spots disappear instantaneously (wouldn't that be lovely) but I've found that using this twice a day when I'm dealing with spots means it halves the amount of days I usually have to put up with them!

The nozzle itself is also pretty good at it's job - it dispenses an evefine mist when sprayed from a distance. If your skin is just outright oily then I'm sure you'd benefit from spritzing it all over but because of my skin's dry tendencies I prefer to concentrate the spray on where I get oiliest & spots regularly pop up. Sometimes I'll direct it straight onto my face, sometimes I'll spray some on a cotton pad and apply it that way so I can get at specific places. What I'm trying to say is that you can work with it even if you do have dry patches!

To be honest, not much apart from the fact it can be drying. I think the bottle is a good size and it's great value for money. Will I repurchase? Most definitely!

So those are my thoughts on the ever-hyped Serozinc. Go ahead and get involved in the comments if you have any questions about it! I'd also love to know if you have any other La Roche-Posay product recommendations!

Have you tried this?
