La Roche-Posay | Serozinc

La Roche-Posay | Serozinc
All the beauty fanatics out there seem to be going on about the new launch product from La Roche-Posay recently so I was really grateful that La Roche-Posay contacted me to try this out. Having gotten on with almost everything from this range and currently use the oily to combination cleansing range in my every day routine, I was really intrigued and excited to try this product. In a lot less fancy way to describe this is: a toning mist as a spray which is interesting and less work for me I guess!

I am one of those people who have to use a toner on my face after I cleanse it. I know some say toners don't work or they have no real purpose but, my skin just wouldn't feel complete without one and if I am being honest here this toner definitely will change a lot of people's opinion on the 'toners don't work'.  

When I first received this I was a little confused by how to use this and for awhile I hadn't been using it correctly - well at least I think I wasn't. At first I would cleanse, then tone (with my current toner at the time) and then spray this on my face afterwards and this was my routine for over a week or so. I had read a bloggers review on this product a few weeks ago and she explained how she used this as her toner after she would cleanse. So I decided to remove my current toner and replace it with this. I think this is the correct way to use this, but I must admit the whole double tone routine I had going on definitely worked on my skin still. I just had to clear that up on how to use this and what it is because it can be a little confusing.

Now down to the nitty gritty...this product has done wonders for my oiliness and any imperfections. I have recently mentioned that I've been using the S&G cleansing brush here which has also helped with my skin. You close your eyes and spray this all over your after you've cleansed and dried your face then leave it to set for a minute or 2. After the couple of minutes are up you then pat your face with a towel to remove any parts that have not absorbed into your skin. It is very refreshing on the skin especially on those mornings where you need a wake up blast. Personally this saves so much time and effort. I used to apply my previous toners with a cotton pad and wipe any access makeup or dirt whereas with this it is a simple spray then go. To me this seems to be more of a treatment rather than a toner even though it is for toning if that makes sense.

Some toners can feel quite drying on the skin, this one seems to add moisture rather than remove it which is great. I have noticed the difference in my skin any access oil has been completely removed, it seems ages ago that I had to top up my powder or I was shining when wearing any makeup, so this has definitely helped with those areas. I have also noticed that any red areas or those pesky spots were reduced by a massive amount. Even my boyfriend had commented on how clear my skin was looking and I genuinely believe it is down to this product as well as using my cleansing brush. Total miracle worker.

Amazing product. Highly recommend it if you have oily to spot prone skin as this has done wonders for mine. I am definitely going to continue to use this in my skincare routine as without it my skin doesn't feel complete. I never thought a toning product could do such amazing things to my skin. This definitely proves that toners do nothing.

  7. You have sold this to me! I have fairly oily skin so I think this would be perfect. I love the fact that you spray it on as well. My other toners are ones you put on cotton pads. It really does save a lot of effort! x

  10. I have to admit I am one of those people who say "toners don't work", I am so open to the idea and want one to work. Am definitely going to give this a try as I love the brand and it looks different to other toners I've tried. Toners always take me back to my clearosol days which are associated with such bad memories of acne, but the fact this is a spray will help avoid those scarring memories!

    1. Quite a lot of people say that too, I think this is a lot more than a toner even though that is what it is the results are the best I have saw x

  11. That is the one thing I hate about toners and it always puts me off is the lack of hydration. But this one does sound tempting!

  16. I haven't tried this but I do have two toners at the moment - Pixi glow tonic and The Body Shop Aloe Toner. Perhaps you could use an exfoliating toner first then spray this Roche-Posay toner over? That's what I see people doing in videos, though it doesn't mean they are right lol. x

  18. I love the look of this. I've been thinking of trying out the Lush Tea tree toner and this sounds pretty simple - anything that's less faff and will help my spots is a win for me! :)

  19. I really liked serozinc for calming down my skin, i thought it really helped to reduce redness in spots and I also liked it for other parts of the body like on my legs when I had a bit of a shaving rash through stupidly dry shaving in a rush - it really soothed that!
