Thank you for sharing this ❣️ I made the mistake of thinking using more niacinamide will make my pores appear smaller & it backfired on me! I ended up with taut & peeling skin. 😲 I learnt that using less is more important & my skin was happier ☺️

Same here! I was very inexperienced and I used the TO Niacinamide along with a lot products that contain Niacinamide. At the end my skin was so dry & tight. Now I'm only using products that has a small concentration of Niacinamide.
