Facial Sprays | La Roche Posay & Avène

Facial sprays did the rounds in the beauty industry a couple of years back when everybody and their mum seemed to be talking about the La Roche-Posay Serozinc. A few years down the line and now only a click of a button, rather than a Channel return, the infamous Serozinc is a now readily available in the UK via

Cue facial spray galore. As soon as I got my hands on the blue bottled beauty, I knew I would be lusting after more. After a recent trip to France, I came back with enough bottles of facial sprays to last a lifetime, but the one that stole my heart was the Avène Thermal Spring Water. This multitasking wonder has definitely served its purpose. If you're looking for a post cleansing, pre-moisturiser spray which helps the skin retain moisture and glow similar to the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, but far more suitable for sensitive skin and your bank balance, this will be your best pick. Sold already? I haven't even started yet. This spray has saved me in times of need, if I've got a little bit too happy with powder then I spritz this on and I'm ready to go; cakey face begone! The formula is suitable for sensitive skin, particularly being promoted as having an anti-irritating, soothing formula which helps sooth the skin after shaving and refresh the face on a humid day. 

Even though Avène is very much repurchase worthy, there is still one facial spray that I cannot get enough of. Serozinc is a zinc sulfate solution which is to be used as a toner in your skincare routine. When I'm suffering with redness, irritation or those little bumps under the skin, I always reach for Serozinc to sort my skin out. Due to the formula only containing three ingredients, I find that this is perfect for my easily irritated, sensitive-combination skin (That would have been a mouthful). Even though this is no miracle product, the formula has calmed my skin and prevented many blemishes from occurring. A staple in my skincare routine. 

What facial sprays have you tried? 



  1. Hello Lily, I should check them out! I am always keen for new products. I have tried a couple of different products but then I could not see any difference. Find me: Love, Iga x

  2. I really like the La Roche Posay Serozinc spray & I use it every morning before I start my skincare routine. It helps keep my skin clear & fresh. It such a bargain too

  3. I've tried the Avène one and although I love it because it's cooling, I kind of don't get the point of it! I really want to try Serozinc though!

  5. I have a mini of the avene spray and I find it great for cooling you down and for spraying after you cleanse the face.
