La Roche Posay Serozinc – Worth The Hype?

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.

    I've not heard of this product before so unfortunately missed out on any hype! But I just got into trying to Effaclar Duo after everything I'd read about it and so far so good 🙂

    Sounds like a potential cult product – if only we could get our hands on it!

    I just recently bought the 50 spf tinted moisturiser from la roche posay and really enjoyed it so I'm interested in trying more of their stuff out! Annoying you can't get it over here yet though

    I've heard of it, but never really read anything about it. I think it would really suit my skin, and I might try and find myself a can!

    I quite like the sound of this, like you said, as an easy fix. I don't necessarily really need it, but does it really hurt to try? lol.

    I've been meaning to do a review on this one too since I've been using it for a couple of months now. I'm quite indifferent to the product; I don't feel like it has a massive effect on my skin but maybe it's just good at keeping things in check! 🙂 x

    Sounds like a decent product if you can get your hands on it! Not much of a necessity, but it'd be a nice one to try out.

    Thanks a lot for this honest review. I ordered Serozinc sometime last year, but the seller never came around so I was refunded; it was a pain. xo

    I'm lucky to be french and live near Paris, I can buy this whenever I want 😉 I like this product but I can't use it on a daily basis, even if my skin is oily this Serozinc dehydrates my skin too much ! However, I really like to use it when I just waxed or tweezed my brows, it soothes my skin so well and avoid little bumps and redness ! 🙂 La Roche Posay is definitely a great brand and I'm so happy that it's french !

    I'm going to Paris in two weeks, and Amelia Liana said she picked it up for 5 euros somewhere and I'm looking for a new toner so I might just try it because of that. But I wasn't expecting miracles!

    I really want to try this out, but I definitely don't see any trips to Paris in my future. The version sold here in America probably does something similar, so I'm not too bothered that I can't get my hands on it. Still looks great, though!

    That sounds really nice! I will have to look getting my hands on it when I get back to the States (as a trip to France is fair bit harder to swing).

    I had an itchy rash on my face and heard about the Serozinc hype all over Google so I ordered it from eBay and I almost thought I was ripped off because spraying it on my face did nothing for my rash for quite a number of days and then I decided to rub the Serozinc into my face and finally the itchiness and scratchiness of my rash stopped and it stopped for many hours actually into the next day I believe. The bumps were still there but rubbing the Serozinc in did stop the itching almost immediately. I bought some Pau D'Arco bark from Etsy to use on my face and to drink to help with my rash in order to clear it up.

    I didn't really find a difference between serozinc and other thermal spring water sprays… However looking at other people's reviews I think some find it helpful reducing redness.
