If you do not have all the time in the world to read some silly skincare blog, I will go straight to the point – YES, it is in my opinion very much worth the hype it gets.
At this point if you are still with me go grab that cup of tea, love. It’s gonna be an amazing skincare tale! Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3, is a wonderful ingredient for skin, and I said wonderful because its one of the very few ingredients that suits almost EVERY skin type.
According to their official website, the serum contains a high 10% concentration of Niacinamide (vitamin B3) which is supported in the formula by zinc salt of pyrrolidone carboxylic acid.
The direction says to apply on entire face morning and evening before heavier creams. So of course, after cleansing and toning, apply the serum all over the face. You do not need too much of the product, just few drops are fine. It feels a little slimy at first but dries up so quickly. If you are using other serums, go from thinnest to thickest one. Then apply your moisturizer and DO NOT forget sunscreen.
Definitely. I have an acne prone, combination skin, which is mildly sensitive. I have been using The ordinary niacinamide serum for quite a long time now and I absolutely love it. I have seen visible improvement on the appearance of the large pores around my nose. No, they are not completely vanished, and it is not exactly possible, but they definitely look smaller now. I think it is also helping with controlling my excessive sebum production, I feel less oily now than before. It also helped very much with my acne problem, I still do get acne of course, but it is so much better than before. I love my skin now!
Some realizations I want to include that, you know not just for this particular serum but for any skin care product you have to be consistent. You do not have to have a 47-step skin care routine. Whatever routine you have, no matter how less products you can afford or want to buy, just be consistent with your routine. When it comes to skincare, consistency is the key. See none of us know everything, I am just like you, struggling to find the perfect product that suits me, and I won’t have to wake up with a breakout the next day. So just love your skin. Do your research, try out different products and find the one that suits you the most, because you know you like no one else!
I know there are tons of other fancy niacinamide serum, and some of them are really good. But the reason I love this one so much is because it does what it says, that’s it. It is so much affordable, all the ordinary products are, to be honest. And if at such an affordable price I get a product that works amazing on my skin, then why not?
