La Roche-Posay Serozinc and where to buy it in the UK!

Today I thought I would do a quick post about where I source my cans of  La Roche-Posay Serozinc from, as I know that this isn't as readily available here in the UK, as many of us would like it to be. I think I have found a solution that doesn't involve moving to France.

My fours cans of Serozinc

La Roche-Posay Serozinc is what I use in the moisturising toner stage of my skincare routine and has become a staple within that routine that I cant see myself changing any time soon.

I have been using it for over four months now and I really feel it has made a big improvement to my skin, most especially in my chin area where I seem to get a lot of spots.These have significantly reduced in number and frequency since I began using this product.

Now, admittedly I did overhaul my skincare routine at the same time, which I know has also contributed to its improvement, but I feel that this stage in particular has made a big impact.

The active ingredients in Serozinc are Water, Sodium Chloride and Zinc Sulfate, which you might think would not make a difference to your skin, but Serozinc seems to reduce my redness and calm painful spots down in a record time (for me anyway!).

When I first head about it I decided nothing else would do and I had to have it. As I previously mentioned it can be a bit of a struggle to get this in the UK but after some digging I was able to find a company called Cocooncenter who stock it and will deliver to the UK.

I have now ordered through them twice and am very impressed with the range of products they offer (a lot of the french pharmacy lines that are a struggle to get over here) and the swiftness of their delivery.

They send regular emails to keep you updated on the progress of your order and on an important note it has also never been out of stock when I have looked.

I made my last order in the evening on the 30/09/2013 and it was with me by the 03/10/13 which is an excellent turnaround especially as I choose the standard and not expedited shipping option.

The price is also very reasonable I paid €6.50 per can and then €9.90 for the shipping, I ordered four cans and I think this came to around the £30 mark. I am more than happy to pay this, but think it is definitely worth getting a few at a time to make the shipping worth it.

Something else offered by the Cocooncenter is that they have a loyalty bonus with each purchase that can be either saved or deducted from you next order. I used mine to take about 50p of my order cost.

Please do go have a browse and let me know what you think, I have linked the direct page to the Serozinc here

  1. Hi Heather! I love Serozinc too, I get mine slightly cheaper than you (I have placed 2 orders with them now and both have been super quick to arrive) from this website called Le Guide Sante http://www.leguidesante.co.uk/185D/purchase/serozinc-astringent-toner-150ml/, definitely recommend them xx

    1. Cheaper for delivery I mean, the Serozinc price is roughly the same xxx

    2. Oh lovely I will have a look I'm sure you told me the same on Instagram and then I promptly forgot lol! I hope you are good! I'm just about to go read your latest post now :) xxx

  2. wow thanks for the recommendation! I've recently fallen in love with serozinc and was worrying about where to get it in the UK xx
