La Roche Posay’s Serozinc solution is one of those beauty products that does the rounds in the beauty world every time one of us pops over to Fance. Naturally I thought I’d have my round after our recent trip to Parieee as I’d been wanting to give it a whirl since the first review I read.
If you’re wondering what the hell I’m on about, Serozinc is a zinc sulphate solution that aims to cleanse and sooth the skin. You can spray it directly on your face (my preferred method) or use a cotton pad as the middle man. If you’ve already read all that bumf before then you’re probably just wondering “is it worth the hype?” With that in mind, i’ll keep this one sweet (and potentially on the fence – we all know I like to be diplomatic).
Firstly let’s address the fact that I was warned away from this by a few of you because of my dry skin – it’s fine. I simply cover my completely dry patches as they aren’t the area I’m looking to target anyway. Which brings me on to my second point – the area this does target. I cover my forehead and spray this over the centre of my face where I’m usually plagued with congested and tiny bacterial spots. These pop up occasionally in my oilier areas when I’ve been wearing a lot of slap, and when I don’t have time for a face mask this is a great mini fixer. My skin just looks so much more fresh and clear the next morning. In terms of convenience and time saving it gets a massive thumbs up from me.
The TLDR? Is it worth the hype? Probably not… I do really like it and will definitely use up the two bottles I picked up. But it’s not worth a trip to France just for a few cans of the stuff. It’s great for niggley little spots, so if you suffer with them, are interested in the product and have it easily available, then pick it up. Just don’t go out of your way to hunt one down. Saying that, if you are interested in grabbing one sans trip to Pariee, I’m pretty sure Anna has a post with links to a potential eBay seller – go wild.
