Avis soins zinc Typology.

Opinions on zinc-based skincare treatments.

Zinc is a mineral that is particularly prevalent in skin and hair care products. Its concentration is restricted in Europe according to cosmetic regulations to 1% zinc in the final product. Zinc is present in more than thirty cosmetic ingredients, some of which are more controversial than others and have diverse actions (antimicrobial, surfactant, foaming agent, pH regulator...). At Typology, we primarily use the zinc PCA, a gentle active ingredient, non-controversial and tolerated by all skin types.

Reviews on our local imperfection serum.

The local blemish serum contains 2% salicylic acid and 1% zinc, for a anti-bacterial and purifying overall action. It is typically used as a treatment, over a limited period of time, in local application : a single drop is enough for an isolated pimple. Here are some comments from our users about it:

  • Charlyne B. (03/25/2019): "Very effective product, results are visible after 2-3 days and the scars left by blemishes become invisible."

  • Melissa B. (03/12/2021): " The results are impressive! The product is not sticky, has no odor, and is easy to apply. ";

  • Royer M. (03/28/2019): "A true solution for reducing imperfections! One of the few products I've tried that shows results."

  • Yoann B. (12/24/2019): "The bottle may seem small, but in reality, the amount of product that needs to be applied is minimal, so it lasts quite a long time. The product is simply magical! After 3-4 days of application, my pimples started to disappear, even the marks that I've had for several years! I recommend this product."

This Typology treatment offers a targeted result. Based on the above comments, the application is easy and the results are observable after just a few days of use on both blemishes and scars.

Reviews on our mattifying serum.

This concentrate is rich in azelaic acid derived from plants and bamboo extract, designed to reduce excess sebum and mattify oily skin. This matte serum is to be used morning and evening, before your moisturizing cream. It is particularly recommended for combination and oily skin prone to acne. Here are some user reviews about it:

  • Sarah (4/11/2019): "A very fluid serum that quickly penetrates the skin, leaving it soft and matte. It's great on small pimples, my sensitive, redness-prone skin tolerates it perfectly, and as a bonus, it's also effective on rosacea pimples. For my skin, it's the best."

  • Guillaume W. (11/22/2019): "After testing several products and brands, I believe I have found "The Product". I've been using it for about 15 days. The effects are noticeable: less oily skin, tightened pores, and fewer blackheads. Moreover, it leaves a pleasant sensation on the skin, no tightness, not too oily, but soft skin. The best part, it's natural. I approve. Thank you, Typology."

  • Asmahane A. (11/16/2019) : "This serum does its job well. I am very satisfied with it. I apply it before my mattifying moisturizing cream and the combination of the two ensures that my skin does not shine throughout the day."

  • Sandrine (12/11/2019): "The best mattifying serum I've ever tried. The effect lasts on me all day, a feat considering that usually my skin becomes shiny very quickly."

Users therefore observe results quickly after daily use of the serum. Their complexion is evened out, the skin is less oily throughout the day, and blemishes become less frequent.

  • Laura C. (12/23/2021) : "A pleasure to cleanse the face! Smooth skin texture. Pleasant feel. And a remarkable quantity. The bottle lasts two months with daily use. I recommend."

  • Thibaut S. (11/26/2022) : "I use it every morning and my skin is deeply cleansed, I really love this product. It lathers slightly and leaves a feeling of softness on the face. As someone with oily skin, it's essential for feeling that my skin is thoroughly cleansed."

Opinions on the purifying face cream.

Due to its content of sebum-regulating and antibacterial actives, ourpurifying face creammade with 4% zinc PCA and bamboo extract is ideal for moderating sebum secretion, refining skin texture, and preventing the appearance of unsightly blackheads. It should be applied daily to clean, dry skin, over yourface serum, using small circular movements during application until the cream is fully absorbed. However, this cream is not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women due to the essential oils it contains. Discover some reviews about it below.

  • Lucie G. (3/08/2020) : "Significantly improved skin, smoother, fewer redness and blemishes when combined with the nettle soap. Very satisfied with this product, the skin is less oily, regulates sebum well. I have very reactive skin and I had an excellent tolerance to the cream."

  • Julien W. (07/19/2020) : "I had almost given up on being able to hydrate my oily, blemish-prone skin, as every product I bought in stores seemed to exacerbate my problems rather than solve them. This one, however, mattifies my skin well and hydrates it perfectly. Thank you!"

  • Faustine F. (5/08/2020) : "This cream is perfect for my combination skin! It soothes imperfections while providing the necessary hydration to my skin!"

I use this serum on my back and shoulders (which were covered in large and small red blemishes) and after 3 weeks of use, I'm starting to see results. I no longer have large red blemishes and when a small one appears, just a drop is enough to reduce it or make it disappear overnight." ;
