Best niacinamide product for breakouts?

Hi guys! I'm looking for the best serum to use for my combination to oily, acne prone skin. My cousin recommended the ordinary one to me, I've already used the naturium one, and I've heard wonderful things about the inkey list one. Has anyone tried any/all of these? How would you say they compare? Or, do you have any other HG products to recommend?

im using the inkey list Niacinamide serum right now and the texture is like a gel serum texture. it applied smoothly but it leaves a slight tacky texture, but its less tacky than the Ordinary one. so far I think my skins oiliness is balance and my skin is healthier but honestly i think Niacinamide just does nothing for my skin😅

I find azelaic acid better than niacinamide for breakouts. Niacinamide is more for brightening to me. I love Paula’s Choice AzA Booster for its cosmetically elegant texture plus it contains a little bit of salicylic acid which is good for acne too. I often pair it with Paula’s Choice Niacinamide Booster for prevention of dark marks.

I've been trying the TIAM niacinamide serum for about one week and I think it is working very well so far! 💗

I love this one too 💕 it's great for oily acne-prone skin. Helps to fade dark spots and control sebum production.

This is an absolute star! I use TO one before and it didn't impress me - hardly any results and a bit sticky.
