Serozinc In The UK

La Roche-Posay Serozinc* - £8.50

2015 is already shaping up to be an excellent year as from January 1st Serozinc will at long last be available to buy in the UK! After 18 months of paying over the odds for this stuff on eBay I was overjoyed to hear that La Roche-Posay have finally brought Serozinc over here. It will be exclusively available on where you can get a bottle of this wonder toner for just £8.50.

If you haven't heard about Serozinc before then let me break it down for you. Inside this blue aerosol can is a zinc sulfate solution. Zinc is an incredibly important ingredient in skincare. It helps to reduce inflammation, heal wounds & regulate sebum production. For the past couple of years I've been taking a zinc + copper supplement which basically got rid of my cystic acne entirely. I still get other kinds of blemishes though and that's where Serozinc comes in. I use this product as a hydrating spray toner either on it's own or after an exfoliating toner. Although it's mainly intended for those with oily or blemish-prone skin I think it would be a good toner for most skin types. It feels just like a fine mist of water on the skin which is really cooling & soothing. It helps to calm down any active spots, redness & irritation. This product is a staple in my skincare routine & I couldn't be without it now!

Another thing I love about Serozinc is that you don't just have to use it as a toner. It's a bit of a multi-purpose marvel. Zinc is great for alleviating loads of different skin irritations so it also works brilliantly on things like razor burn & nappy rash. Think of it as an invisible spray version of Sudocrem. It's the kind of thing that every family should have in their medicine cabinet. I can't thank Escentual enough for bringing Serozinc to the UK as now I'll never have to worry about running out & ordering it from random eBay sellers again. It really is such a fantastic product & I am completely addicted to this skin soothing spray. Believe the hype!

  7. Hi ! Would you mind sharing which supplement you were taking ? Thanks v much

    1. Sure! It was the High Strength Chelated Zinc with Copper Tablets 15mg from Holland & Barrett. I found out that 30mg of zinc is the optimum amount that the body nears to clear cystic acne so I took 2 of those every day. The additional copper is important to keep the right balance of minerals in your system. Hope that helps! xx
