The La Roche-Posay Face Sprays

Isn’t funny how quickly a fairly unknown French brand here in the UK can quickly become a household name and something that swiftly moves up to poll position on many beauty bloggers’ wish list. La Roche-Posay has always been accessible from a few stores, namely Boots, and online but a certain few products, (cough…Serozinc…cough) have kept us UK beauty lovers’ channel-hopping over to La Pharmacies of Paris to stock up on this cult skincare spray. Well we can now pack our passports away as January this year we were blessed with the news that a UK beauty site would be selling Serozinc so we could now shop and spray until our heart’s content! So thank you and merci beaucoup Escentual.

So what is all the fuss about? Well I first purchased and tried Serozinc a year or so ago when I visited Paris and can completely see why it has become such a staple in many people’s skincare routine. It is basically a Zinc Sulphate toning mist that can be applied directly from the can or onto a cotton pad to be swiped over the face following your morning or evening cleanse. It is designed to help soothe and repair slow-healing skin. You know those annoying red patches and spots left behind from a bout of acne or skin irritation? Well a few sprays of this will help settle the irritated areas and generally give your complexion a fresh, comfortable feel whilst reducing marks, redness and excess oiliness. The formula is perfect to use everyday as a toner in-between your cleanser and serum/moisturiser or can be spritz on any time of the day to give your skin a refreshing treat to tighten up the appearance of pores and prevent excess shine. It is ideal for all skin types and for only £7.20, it really is a step I wouldn’t skip now from my skincare regime.

Having got the La Roche-Posay spray-in-a-can bug I was also excited to try one of their newer products to launch – the Thermal Spring Water Spray* (£7) also available from Escentual. This light mist is the perfect antidote to hot, stressed or sensitive skin particularly in the Summer time when you just need to refresh and hydrate. Suitable for all skin types, even if you suffer from eczema, psoriasis, burns, scars, acne or rosacea, the unique blend of mineral salts and trace elements including Selenium  makes this spray the ultimate soothing and softening fix. The micro-droplets penetrate the skin immediately for instant relief by decongesting, soothing and preventing skin ageing. It is an absolute must-have to pop in your bag if commuting, city-trotting, festival-going or air-travelling this Summer and with the dinky 50ml version available, it will still leave you with plenty of room for all your other essentials!

    I've been using Serozinc for months now and I've already purchased my third bottle of it! The Thermal Spring Water sounds good though! x

    This sounds like an absolute godsend! I've tried toners out before (and I have acne prone skin) and they just don't seem to co-operate, especially ones I've paid more for. However, after using the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo + and thoroughly loving it, I have high expectations for this and can't wait to buy one to try out! Thanks for the review 🙂

    The Serozinc has become a total staple of mine. I like La Roche Posay in general and luckily, living in Belgium, it is available in any pharmacy here. I really have to hunt down the small version though. I travel a lot for work and usually i just have carry on, so i have to leave this at home. Since it is in a spray can, i can also not refill.
