I have obviously heard a lot about La Roche Posay and my sensitive skin was super eager to give their products a go. My first purchase from the brand was the cult Effaclar Duo + which sadly did not work out as well on my skin as I hoped it would have.
Another product which had been on my list forever was Serozinc, which sadly was not available in India anywhere. Imagine my ecstasy when Nykaa finally launched it. It took me not more than 2 minutes to place the order and 2 days later, my Serozinc came to me! :)
Now, you all probaly know by now how much I love using Rose Water (this one particularly) as a toner. It has been my go to for years now and I never had any complaints.
Why did I switch to Serozinc you might wonder then. Well, firstly, general curiosity. And secondly, this is a more targeted product for breakouts. So for the past month, I have put my beloved rose water aside and have used Serozinc 2 times a day.
Before I say more, you might want to see the skincare video by Caroline Hirons for some super interesting and helpful information. This purchase has been majorly due to her.
The beauty of Serozinc is that it has just 3 ingredients - Aqua, Sodium Chloride and Zinc Sulfate. Wow!
I use it just after cleansing my face (morning and evening). Spray it on, leave it until it gets absorbed. This takes a minute or two, follow it up with moisturizer/facial oil.
Has it worked for me?
I would have to say yes. It has been a month since I have been using it, religiously, and I haven't had any massive breakout. Not even 1. There have been 1-2 teeny tiny ones, mostly on my forehead (which I can mostly blame oily unwashed hair), but other than that, none! Which is Ah-May-Zing.
It feels cooling and calms down my skin quite a bit, reduces rashes (can use used for razor burns and nappy rashes too!)
It does make my skin softer and facilitates absorbtion of the products applied after. But to be fair, rose water does that too.
Of course, I will have to add that Serozinc alone, is surely not resposible for controlling the breakouts. I have stuck to a skincare routine which has been working for me pretty well. But Serozinc has had a major part to play in it without a doubt. It is such a simple yet brilliant product!
Do you like using spray toners? Which ones do you like? Have you used Serozinc yet?
