La Roche-Posay Serozinc

La Roche-Posay Serozinc
A product that has been the top of my beauty wishlist for quite some time is La Roche-Posay's Serozinc spray.  Up until recently it's been a tough one to track down but now that it's available on Escentual, I was the first in line to make my preorder and finally see what the fuss is about.

If you haven't heard of Serozinc before, it's basically a zinc sulfate solution for oily, blemish-prone skin.  It's main purpose is to help calm down angry skin, reduce oilyness and soothe irritations so for me it sounds like exactly what my skin needs.

Much like their Thermal Spring Water, it comes out in a lovely mist which you can spray directly onto the skin or on a cotton pad.  Personally I find the cotton pad method works better but it's all up to personal preference.  The ingredients found inside are the thermal spring water, healing zinc sulfate (0.10%) and astringent sodium chloride (0.75%).  It's very simple which I find is best for my skin.

Now the real question, does it work? After a couple of weeks of using it I've sadly found myself a little disappointed.  I do feel that may be due to the hype but I expected to see a much bigger difference in the appearance of my skin.  I would say that it does make a difference in the oilyness of my skin to an extent and it does feel refreshing to use but I haven't found my blemishes to be reduced in the long run.

I'll continue using it and I do think it's worth a try if you have an oily/blemish-prone skin type but sadly I don't feel it's an essential product to my everyday skincare.  Have you tried Serozinc yet?
