Ok, this review is way overdue given that I’ve had this product for a few months and am about to finish one whole bottle of it. La Roche-Posay is a brand that would not be foreign to many people since it’s a commonly accessible French pharmacy skincare/ bodycare brand. They are most well-known for their dry sensitive skin range and many people swear by their Toleriane Cream which is a soft face cream specially formulated to soothe heating and irritations in intolerant skin.
However, the product that I’m going to talk about today is meant for an entirely different skin type – the oily blemish-prone skin. The La Roche-Posay Serozinc Spray is a facial mist toner featuring Zinc Sulphate, specifically designed to target key signs of oily, blemish-prone skin. It has a very short ingredients list which I’ve included as below.
AQUA, SODIUM CHLORIDE & ZINC SULFATE
How does the La Roche-Posay Serozinc Spray fare?
The La Roche-Posay Serozinc Spray is touted to specifically target key signs of oily, blemish-prone skin. Essentially, it is meant to be an oil-blotter mist (Imagine that!) that you can use as a toner for oil control and mist throughout the day to help control sebum production. The results that you should see while using this product is skin that looks and feels less shiny and greasy and mattified.
To be perfectly honest, I really don’t know why I bought this product. I’ve dehydrated combination dry skin that would benefit from more moisture instead. However, it was on sale (Original price is S$24.90 and I bought it for $19.90) and I guess it was an impulsive buy. *shrugs* Anyway, I’ve been using it in the evenings after my acids as a soothing hydrating spray and it seemed to be working well. My skin doesn’t feel any stinging at all and I like the light moisture hit that it gives to my skin before I pumped in all my intensive hydrating and moisturizing treatments. I’m not sure that I would repurchase it again though since I don’t really see much effects from it. Maybe oily blemish-prone skins would love it more than I do.
Where can you find it?
I bought it from the physical Watsons stores. It retails at S$24.90 (150ml sized).
You can also purchase it from Watsons Online here.
