Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

product review positives
๐Ÿ“– What it Does ๐Ÿ“– โ€ข Reduces Appearance of Blemishes โ€ข Sebum Production Balancing โ€ข Minimises Appearance of Pores โ€ข Calming โ€ข Smoothing โ€ข ๐Ÿง–โ€โ™€๏ธ My Experience ๐Ÿง–โ€โ™€๏ธ I use this in the AM routine after toner. This definetly smoothed my skin texture and has helped with my sebum production, my skin is less oily and my pores look so much tighter. I pat this serum on my face, if I rub it on it creates like a white sort of foamy texture on top, this is because I use about 6-8 drops, it's recommended to use 2-3 drops. I allow it to dry before applying the next product. This absorbs nicely and doesn't feel tacky. I use this 3-4 times a week, sometimes after vitamin C, though if your skin is very sensitive seperate the two. In conjunction with the use of a BHA this helps keep pores clean and minimises the appearance of them. ๐Ÿชด Highlight Ingredients ๐Ÿชด โ€ข Vitamin B3 - Smoothing โ€ข โ€ข Zinc - Sebum Control โ€ข ๐Ÿ‘ƒ Smell ๐Ÿ‘ƒ Slight chemical smell which quickly dissappears. ๐ŸŒˆ Colour๐ŸŒˆ Clear. It goes yellow/brown when it is oxidised. ๐ŸŒต Texture ๐ŸŒต Light gel like texture. ๐ŸŽ Packaging ๐ŸŽ Cloudy glass dropper bottle, with a clear glass dropper and white plastic twist top. ๐Ÿ’ญ Final Thoughts ๐Ÿ’ญ This was my first TO product from a couple of years back. I always keep a bottle on hand. This is great for oily acne prone skin. โญ Overall Score โญ 5/5
product review negatives
๐Ÿ“ข If you've never used Niacinamide before, this is 10% and quite high for beginners, it can irritate and break you out. It contains zinc so it might irritate some people too.
