Purify your blemish-prone, troublesome skin with La Roche-Posay Serozinc, a toning mist enriched with zinc sulphate. Serozinc is created with just three ingredients: water, healing zinc sulphate (0.10%) and astringent sodium chloride (0.75%). Together, these three ingredients target blemishes, marks and excess oiliness, ensuring your complexion feels fresh and comfortable at any time of day. The versatile formula is perfect for use as a toner between cleansing and moisturising, or it can be used at any time of day to refresh and treat your skin. It's a simple and effective solution to help mattify oily skin, prevent excess shine and tighten the appearance of pores every day. After cleansing, close your eyes and mist onto skin. Leave to absorb, and gently pat away the excess. Follow with an oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturiser such as Effaclar Duo +. Hypoallergenic, non-perfumed, suitable for acne-prone skin.

Well, it did not make my skin worse, so that is a plus I guess. I am willing to give it another shot and see what happens.

Bought this for myself to prevent dark spots gettting any worse, and it has been good for that.
Not oily or too heavy so it also avoided causing me any additional breakouts

Achieve a clear and mattified complexion with the Avene Cleanance Anti-Blemish Kit, a skincare gift set for oily, blemish-prone skin. Perfect for problematic complexions, the Anti-Blemish Kit will help purify and clear your skin. It features the reformulated and even more effective Cleanance Cleansing Gel, which gently cleanses the skin while removing dirt and makeup. It also reduces excess sebum to leave skin soft, smooth and shine-free. The set also hydrates the complexion with the Cleanance Comedomed moisturiser, which helps reduce blemishes and limit their reappearance. The lightweight lotion also soothes the skin and leaves it comfortable. Avene's cutting-edge Comedoclastin(TM) is showcased in both formulas to help reduce excess sebum and prevent blemishes, while Avene's renowned Thermal Water soothes skin sensitivities.

Avene Cleanance Comedomed Anti-Blemishes Concentrate 30ml: A hydrating moisturiser that mattifies skin, reduces blemishes and limits their reappearance. The formula uses 25% Comedoclastin(TM), an innovative active ingredient that's derived from milk thistle to help reduce excess sebum and prevent blemishes. This moisturiser also contains 67.5% Avene Thermal Spring Water to soften and comfort sensitivities. It can be used alone or alongside medicinal acne treatments (should not be used with oral Isotretinoin), or as an individual spot treatment. Why We Love It If you're new to Avene's impressive Cleanance range or you want to introduce a friend to the collection, this is a great place to start. It's a two-step skincare kit to clearer skin - a must-have for breakout-prone complexions. Powerful yet still gentle on the skin, the Cleanance Comedomed Gel has a sterile scent that reminds you of the hardworking ingredients within. The aroma disappears almost immediately, and you'll be amazed at how quick the formula gets to work reducing and minimising blemishes.

The three part package made many promises that just didn't seem to come through for me. I tried this as an alternative to the La Roche Possay 3-set, but I will be going back to that.

Soothe and protect your skin from head to toe with La Roche-Posay Lipikar Syndet AP+ - Lipid Replenishing Cream Wash, a nourishing formulation for sensitive, irritated and dry skin. The anti-irritant creamy gel wash is designed for use on dehydrated and uncomfortable skin that is prone to itchiness, eczema and flakiness. Suitable for use by the whole family, the mild cleanser will protect the face and body from the drying effects of water and will help to hydrate leaving skin feeling cleansed, soft and soothed. So much more than a shower cream gel, this is a wonderfully gentle way to ensure that sensitive and dry skin feels pampered without causing any discomfort. We love the fact that it is suitable for the whole family to use and is particularly good for babies sensitive scalps and also cradle cap. Made up of a 10% concentration of moisturising glycerin, deeply nourishing shea butter and anti-inflammatory niacinamide to help rebuild the skin's barrier function, restoring comfort and suppleness with every use. Why We Love It At Escentual we know how important it is to feel comfortable in your skin, both metaphorically and literally; that's why this shower cream gel gets a huge thumbs up from us. Not only does its formula help with extreme dryness and unbearable itchiness but it's also extremely pampering to use, and if that's not enough it can be used by everyone in the family including babies. It's one for the bathroom cabinet without a doubt! How To Use It Squeeze a small amount of Lipikar Syndet into the palm of the hand, apply to moistened skin, then massage and gently rinse. Works Well With If you're looking for more products specifically for sensitive and reactive skin, why not explore the entire La Roche-Posay Lipikar range? A complete collection of creams, cleansers and soothing solutions for dry, very dry and eczema-prone skin that are suitable for babies, children and adults alike. Values Hypo-allergenic formula, dermatologically tested, non-comedogenic Fragrance-free.

My skin isn't particularly dry, but I had been having breakouts, so I thought I would revert to a gentler cleanser/ wash for a while.
It certainly is gentle, and it has a smooth milky feel that did leave my skin feeling smooth/ pampered afterwards. There is barely any fragrance but it does have a distinctive "smell" that I really like for some reason.
Even though it calmed my skin somewhat, I probably won't reorder as I need something that will reduce my acne breakouts.

Lacoste Essential is all about the spirit of freedom, enjoyment and relaxation - a freedom of mind. "Time-Release Technology" is used which allows the juice to maintain its initial freshness throughout the day. The wearer needs only to rub the skin where the scent is sprayed on in order to break molecules that then release the aroma of its top notes. The essential bottle is innovative, modern and classic. The brushed aluminium cap adds a prestige touch to a unique bottle. The engraved crocodile and lime green juice perfectly encapsulate the spirit of Lacoste. Top Notes: Citrus Notes, Aquatic Notes, Tomato Leaves. Heart Notes: Pepper, Rose. Base Notes:Sandalwood, Patchouli.

This really is an essential in my opinion, it packs a punch that certainly turns heads. Its all down to the upper citrus notes with a slight musk undertone.
Its a really loud and proud fragrance, which lasts and lasts

It is a really powerful fragrance - with very deep notes. As far as I can tell it lasts on the skin for a very long time. Personally it's a little mature for me, maybe a little to musky. Overall I'd say its a great fragrance which does evoke the modern gent.

I took to the fragrance of the stick instantly having never tried this before, it has really earthy notes with a powerful leafy kick. That said I was disappointed with both the duration that the fragrance lasted and its ability to prevent sweat, and unfortunately I had to resort to a cheaper deodorant that I also had - so overall its a "could be better".

Great little product that does what it says on the tin, kept me dry all day and had a really zingy, fresh fragrance on application, just a bit of initial irritation (maybe alcohol content) - and unfortunately left white marks.

This fragrance was given to me, and I'm afraid to say I grew to like it ... slowly. Its an acquired taste. It is quite overbearing in some ways maybe Lanvin call it powerful, to me it has definite manliness about it like the smell of effort and grit. Loads of citrus overtones with underlying peppery herb tones. Trust me you don't need a lot of this on for people to notice it has real longevity
