I bought this on a trip in Edinburgh since LRP doesn't sell this in Austria, and boy, I didn't regret it, even when I spent half a week pining after this and payed waaaay more than this cost online. Serozinc is my first toner, not counting my first and short tint with the Pixi Glow Tonic (which totally dried me out, speaking of being gentle and all). I don't think this gives you a "squeaky clean feeling" etc. - it's basically saltwater with zinc, no acid or alcohol or anything else. My skin feels a tiny bit tighter after spraying it on, but when I'm actually touching my face the skin is incredible soft and hydrated. Also I think Serozinc helped with my acne. The pimples seemed less irritated and red after putting this on. My remaining acne cleared up nicely, if a little bit slower than normaly. Also I like to imagine that the toner has some cleansing powers. I haven't gotten any new pimples since I started using Serozinc over a week ago. Which maybe doesn't sound like much, but actually is for me -there're normally always 2-3 zits lounging around my forehead. I honestly don't think that Serozinc has mattifying effects. But as I went from super oily acne prone skin to moody sensible diva who likes to act out in mini dry patches and acne, I can no longer wipe the sebum from my face, so I can't say that for sure. But if you are new to Serozinc, make sure to use in only once a day to see how your skin reacts. At first, I sprayed it on in the morning and in the evening, and even if I didn't get a bad breakout or rash or something like that, I got the feeling that my skin was a little overwhelmed. Now I only use it in the morning and sometimes in my night routine if I'm feeling a bit extra. Love the spray thing (I hate cotton pads), it's really giving you a fine mist and not just projectile vomiting heavy rain drops on your face. The blue can is very pretty. I'm definately buying this again.
