(Even shorter and sweeter)
On the surface, this spray seems ideal. It’s an affordable and hygienic way of treating oiliness and acne as well as soothing irritation and redness.
There’s a myriad of ways to use Serozinc too. After cleansing, as a gentle toner, either sprayed directly onto the face (it has a very fine mist, which is great), or onto a cotton wool pad and wiping over the skin to tone and remove any leftover grime; sprayed straight on top of makeup to mattify and refresh; onto razor burn to calm; as a refreshing, cooling tonic on a hot day (keeping it in the fridge makes it even colder); great for rosacea and redness and for after exercise. Really, there’s lots of choice. And it should be perfect for my skin type in all its greasy, spotty, ruddy glory. Unfortunately, it didn’t do anything for me. Yes, it feels fresh and cool on the skin, but so does cold water. And I wouldn’t pay £8.50 for water in a can. Unless perhaps it was for the tears of Jesus himself. Though, could you really put a price on the tears of Jesus, in a handy spray can? Hmmmm…
What I’m trying to say is that Serozinc made no noticeable difference to my spots, greasiness or redness and I went through two cans, using it every day, to really give it a chance. I wanted it to work because it’s inexpensive and addresses a multitude of problems. Also, other people have raved about it and I don’t want to be left out! However, I found that when I did apply Serozinc, my face actually seemed oilier than usual. And I don’t need that in my life: Let’s face it; I’ve got enough problems as it is…
Serozinc is available at Boots for £8.50
