Serozinc comes to the UK!
If you read even just a few beauty blogs you will have heard of Serozinc. It is the must-have bloggers skincare secret. Once upon a time everyone went crazy for La Roche Posay’s Effaclar Duo, which I still use to this day, but then word got out from our continental friends that there was another cult La Roche Posay (LRP) product that we couldn’t get! Cue endless trips to French Pharmacies to get our mitts on this most elusive of skincare items.
Well no more, Serozinc has arrived in the UK. It will be sold exclusively by Escentual initially, you can join the waiting list here, which may be wise as I reckon this will sell out fast. I was incredibly lucky to receive a free sample in my goody bag at the LRP Bloggers Christmas Party (which was at the beautiful Magazine Restaurant at the Serpentine Gallery) and it really lives up to the hype.
What Does Serozinc Do?
Serozinc helps with combination or acne prone skin and helps control oil production. This is not something that can be used by everyone, as if you have dry skin it would be disastrous, but for those of us not blessed with matte skin, this is a god send. I have been using it for just over a week now and I can report that my skin is much less prone too oily outbreaks and I am even having to up the amount of moisturiser I am using!!!
How Do You Use Serozinc
It is a toner and like all toners it follows a thorough cleanse but before moisturiser. The application is a dream as the aerosol can just lets you do a quick spray over your face (I like to rub it in at this point) then you just carry on your skincare routine as normal. I apply Effaclar Duo on top as my moisturiser. It can also be used to refresh your skin makeup throughout the day.
How Much Does It Cost?
It will be sold for £8.50 as a standard price but is 15% off at Escentual at the moment so it’s only £7.22 Over the water in France it is just €5 which means it is still worth stocking up when you go on a Continental trip but for those who have built this in to their daily routine, we can now just stock up as needed.
Has anyone else tried this yet? I’d love to know how it works on other peoples skin.
