La Roche Posay Serozinc Review

I do love a good skincare product review. La Roche Posay, is a brand I've had  bit of a love hate relationship with over the past few years. I've tried a few product's from various ranges within the brand and had very different reactions to each.

For example, when the Effaclar Duo came out it was getting rave reviews across the board, everyone seemed to just love it...and yet it wasn't really making much of a difference to my blemish prone skin, which left me so disappointed. Then there's my absolute love for the Effaclar Mat; I didn't think I'd find a product within the brand I'd love as much. That was until I finally got around to trying the Serozinc.

If you've been reading the blog for a while you'll know I have combination skin, oily in places, dry in others and blemish prone, so I was looking for a toner to not only 'treat' the blemishes, but also one that wouldn't irritate and cause redness. I'd seen every blogger and her best friend raving about the Serozinc so, when it was on offer I thought I'd give it a try; and I am so glad I did. 

La Roche Posay Serozinc Review 2016 Blemish Acne Prone Skincare must have

I've never known a product to work to quickly. I've been using this twice a day, as a toner, either spraying it as a mist all over my face and simply patting it in, or applying on to a cotton pad and sweeping that across my face. Which works best? I couldn't say, they're both pretty affective. Then after a minute or two (letting the product absorb into the skin) I simply slap on some moisturiser and I'm done. 

Either way, I can't rave about this enough. I noticed the following day, that not only had any redness/irritation had seemingly calmed but my skin looked so much clearer. Those pesky under the skin, tiny tiny, spots that leave the texture of your skin looking a bit bumpy had completely cleared too! No other product I've tried has ever give me a 'smoother' looking complexion after 3, maybe 4 uses.  

As far as ingredients go, there's only three; water, sodium chloride and zinc sulfate. Which means it's gentle enough to not only be used as a toner for oily, blemish prone skin but also on things like razor burns e.t.c.. 

This is now the first product I reach for the second I notice an oncoming breakout, and has become a fast favourite that's been added to the 'forever re-purchasing' list. 

Have you tried this product? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below!
