this is the most effective niacinamide product so far that i have tried that worked amazingly on my skin in brightening and controlling the sebum on my skin. it contains 10% of niacinamide and 2% of alpha arbutin which makes it great combo in brightening my skin as well as treating my dark spots too. it also did not make my skin dry out due to its high percentage of niacinamide instead it is quite hydrating actually. i had used this product twice and i literally fall in love with this product twice too 😻

I received this product for free from Picky and TIA'M in exchange for my honest review. a͟b͟o͟u͟t͟ π•‘π•’π•”π•œπ•’π•˜π•šπ•Ÿπ•˜ : brown glass bottle π•—π• π•£π•ž : liquid watery texture, not that too runny π•€π•”π•–π•Ÿπ•₯ : very mild, almost scentless e͟s͟s͟e͟n͟t͟i͟a͟l͟ c͟o͟m͟p͟o͟n͟e͟n͟t͟s͟ β€’ niacinamide (vit b3) 10% β€’ arbutin 2% β€’ allantoin β€’ sodium hyaluronate n͟o͟t͟i͟o͟n͟ firstly, i love this serum so much! it does help a lot for some of my skin concerns. i thought this serum didnt suit me at the first cause i got some large pimples that came out a lot at once all of a sudden on my forehead. luckily, i talked about it to one of my friend, @suri.skinsdiary and she said, they could be because of skin adaptation to the product. so i just kept it positive mind until the next second week, the pimples became soothed and shrank. the packaging is brilliantly created which coated with a brown color on a clear glass to protect the formula from light. (edited) - the packaging has renewed to a yellow glass like you have seen in the post. tbh i prefer the old version of bottle (°ー°〃) but it is okay as long as i am still in love with the product. i would say the texture is amazing in my opinion. it is not really runny like rainwater dropping onto our skin and directly falling to the surface of the earth (haha this sentence is funny 😭). it absorbs so well easily and quickly into my skin. the scent is very mild and i would say it is almost scentless. secondly, this niacinamide serum is the most productive niacinamide i ve tried so far to effectively control the sebum on my oily skin. it leaves my skin looking glowing without excessive sebum at all. it doesnt affect my dehydrated skin too which will dry out the skin. it is quite hydrating actually. in addition, similar to what has stated on its packaging, this serum does really work on my skin in lightening skin, fading dark spots and evening skin tone within 2 weeks only. this serum managed to fade my most stubborn dark spots as well! it also managed to get rid of my dull skin and made my skin brighter, radiant and glowing. arghhh love this product sm mainly if you use with the vita b3 mist toner, the duo results are surprisingly so good!!! last but not least, this vita b3 source serum helps with my pores too. c͟o͟n͟c͟l͟u͟s͟i͟o͟n͟ π•₯π•’π•£π•˜π•–π•₯𝕀 : for all skin types and for who that concerns to uneven skin tone, pih, pie, excessive sebum and dull skin. r͟a͟t͟i͟n͟g͟ π•‘π•’π•”π•œπ•’π•˜π•šπ•Ÿπ•˜ π•’π•Ÿπ•• π•—π• π•£π•ž : 1/1 π•€π•”π•–π•Ÿπ•₯ : 1/1 π•šπ•Ÿπ•˜π•£π•–π••π•šπ•–π•Ÿπ•₯𝕀 : 1/1 𝕖𝕗𝕗𝕖𝕔π•₯π•šπ•§π•–π•Ÿπ•–π•€π•€ : 1/1 𝕝𝕠𝕧𝕖𝕀 : 1/1 = 𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐚π₯π₯ : 5/5

I received this product for free from Picky and Acwell in exchange for my honest review. Essential components glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice) rootwater (71%) – niacinamide – sodium hyaluronate – beta glucan – tocopherol – glutathione Notion Acwell licorice pH balancing advance serum claims that this serum can help to soothe the skin, improves the skin texture and also brightens skin tone with its licorice water. This serum is watery, has a lightweight and milkylike texture that gets absorbed into the skin easily and quickly. It has no fragrance added to this serum too and no weird scent detected as well. I use this serum everyday in the morning and at night after toning or I even use it alone in my skincare routine to get its hydration and fresh feeling properties. This serum never irritated my skin and triggered my acne. Instead, it did a great job so well in treating my pie (post-inflammatory erythema) by reducing its redness and scars. It worked very well to reduce the pie although it took some time but yeah, it worked, and I love it so much! Great things do take some time besties hehe <3. Other than that, I appreciate its hydrating function as well when it can boost some hydration and make my skin feel fresher after applying this product onto my skin. It can calm and soothe my skin everytime my skin experiences redness after applying 5% of benzoyl peroxide on my skin overnight. I notice a little bit of difference too when I see my skin tone is brighter and the dullness of my skin slowly disappears as well. So far, this product does its work so well and it did meet my expectations. Targets Highly recommended for every skin type especially sensitive skin type. And everyone who experiences redness and pie skin. Rating 5 stars out of 5

Niacinamide + Chaenomeles Sinensis Serum

i love this one brightening product from mary&may too! the ingredients not many as the other serum but worked astonishingly to the skin! it can treat my dull skin and hyperpigmentation so well. despite its texture that quite viscous, it was actually still lightweight and did not leave my skin greasy, sticky, tacky or any uncomfortable feeling. it absorbs into the skin quickly and effectively

πŸ’Œ: I received these products for free from @stylekorean_global and @marynmay_official @marynmay_global in exchange for my honest review. With transparent and full disclosure of ingredient information, Mary & May is an honest, clean beauty skincare brand that contains only safe, clean and effective ingredients to ensure effectiveness and outstanding results. Mary & May practices eco-friendly values by using only recyclable paper packaging and eco-friendly soybean oil ink. Since I have an oily, acne-prone, sensitive skin with stubborn acne scars, I am more than excited to receive and try these brightening products from Mary & May in hopes to lighten my acne scars as well as to give my complexion a healthy brightening boost. ✨ [ Niacinamide + Chaenomeles Sinensis Serum ] Infused with 2% Niacinamide and 93% Chaenomeles Sinensis Fruit Extract, it brightens up dull and unbalanced skin while keeping the skin moist. Key Ingredients: 🀎 Niacinamide: lightens skin by inhibiting the transfer of melanosomes & regulates sebum production for balanced skin. 🀎 Chaenomeles Sinensis Fruit Extract: rich in Vitamin C and Flavonoids which can help achieve a smooth, radiant skin appearance. I use it in my PM routine. It has a transparent, light brownish colour. Texture-wise, it feels lightweight and watery on the skin, without any sticky or greasy residue. I have to say 2% Niacinamide actually feels better and gentler on my skin compared to those with higher percentage. I experience no irritation at all, and surprisingly it works well instead! As I personally find it effective in reducing the oiliness on my skin as well as my annoying breakouts. I can see how it supports my skin barrier, and my skin definitely feels healthier upon application. I love how this serum helps tackle almost all of my skin concerns and I really hope I can eventually get rid of my stubborn acne scars over time. ❣️ This serum is free from animal testing and 7 harmful ingredients: paraben, artificial fragrance and colours, alcohol, mineral oil, surfactants and allergens. #stylekorean #stylekorean_global #marynmay #trymereviewme #trymereviewme_marynmay
