La Roche-Posay Serozinc


La Roche-Posay Serozinc

La Roche-Posay Serozinc* £8.50 (RRP)

I've reviewed some pretty hyped up beauty products on here in the past but I think that this might just be the most hyped, cult beauty product that I have ever reviewed or heard about. After years of hearing absolutely incredible things about this particular product, as well as seeing so many of my favourite beauty bloggers stocking up on about ten bottles of the stuff when they were in France, I was unbelievably excited when it made it's way to us here in the UK at the start of the year. I was also incredibly over the moon when a bottle of it arrived on my doorstep to coincide with the UK release. Talk about a good start to 2015 and I've been putting it to the test ever since. So here I am, a few months later to share my thoughts on it with you as I can imagine that most of you have clicked onto this review with one question in mind. That question being, 'Is it worth the hype?' Well, hopefully this review will shed some light on that.

First of all, I must start by saying, I am a big big fan of La Roche-Posay. If you've read any of my previous reviews on the brand (link here) then you might remember just how impressed I have been my the French skincare brand. And I am happy to say, I can add another product to that list. I now completely understand why this product is as celebrated and hyped up as it is and I can think myself lucky that I can now easily get my hands on it here in the UK.

La Roche-Posay Serozinc Review

You might remember from previous skincare posts, if you are an avid reader of Ellis Tuesday, that my skin isn't the worst in terms of spots but I do often get one or two really noticeable and angry looking breakouts every so often. So I personally don't use this product daily but on more a as and when I need it basis. If I can feel a blemish lurking under the surface or an area of irritation pops up from nowhere, the first product that I now reach for is Serozinc. What really impressed me was the speed in which you can visibly notice a difference. One night I sprayed a little bit of Serozinc onto a cluster of blemishes, irritation and general redness situated right across my chin,thinking to myself, this will certainly put it through it's paces. And I was shocked to wake up to not only see but really feel a difference. Redness; gone. Tenderness; gone. Blemishes; significantly reduced. Now I was expecting it to be good but not this good.

And what made me look at this product as more of a holy grail beauty item, instead of just another blemish treatment, was the fact that it works on any sort of irritation. Razor burn (I'm already missing the Winter months where I could get away without shaving my legs for basically the entire season) is instantly soothed, as are any occasionally itchy and dehydrated areas of skin. I never even thought about using it on other areas of the body but I am definitely glad that I did. You can either spray it directly on to your face (or desired area), which is what I do or you can use a cotton pad to dab it on.

Have you tried Serozinc before? If so, what do you think of it? And if not, will you be putting it to the test any time soon?

  2. I need a bottle of this in my life! Like you I occasionally get quite angry, concentrated breakouts so something like this sounds ideal to have in my arsenal for when my skin is fighting back xx

  3. I didn't actually think to use mine for things like razor burn, will definitely have to try that out now! I really like it, as you said, I tend to use it on an 'as and when' basis too.

  6. This product sounds amazing. I've been tempted to try it since it landed in the UK but haven't got the chance to yet. Now with this promotion of 2 for £10 I must finally give it a go. My skin has been a bit spotty recently so I feel like I could really do with this. x

  11. This brand is amazing! I remember trying out the Purifying Foam Gel on a wim, didn't really know what to expect until the next day the bump I had on my cheek of what appeared to be an 'up coming' blemish had basically disappeared, I thought to myself what is in this product!? MAGIC ...So I'm definitely going to be trying the Serozinc out! :)
