Who really likes niacinamide serum? So, there are 2 kinds of Somethinc products, 5% & 10%. For those of you who are suitable for using 10% niacinamide, you can really try it from Somethinc. "๐™Ž๐™ค๐™ข๐™š๐™ฉ๐™๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™˜ 10% ๐™‰๐™ž๐™–๐™˜๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™–๐™ข๐™ž๐™™๐™š ๐˜ฝ๐™–๐™ง๐™ง๐™ž๐™š๐™ง ๐™Ž๐™š๐™ง๐™ช๐™ข" โœจMain ingredients: -Rosa Damascena Flower Water -Niacinamide -Zinc PCA -Triple Ceramide (NP, AP, EOP) -Hydrolyzed Algae Extract -Beta Vulgaris Root Extract โœจThis serum functions to help strengthen the skin barrier, brighten, disguise dark spots, overcome acne, reduce redness & moisturize dry skin. โœจPacked in a doff glass bottle containing 20 ml. The serum has a slightly thick texture but still light on the skin, milky color, no fragrance, easy to spread, absorbs quickly & is not sticky on the skin. โœจPreviously I had used 10% of the old version of niacinamide & had finished 3 bottles. For my oily-combination skin type, this serum is perfect for me. I use morning & night. There is no purging effect while using this serum. I prefer the new version because it's not sticky, while the old version is a bit sticky on the skin. What is clear is that the skin looks brighter, moisturized & the oil on my skin is more controlled. Suitable for all skin types including acne prone skin. For sensitive skin, you can try 5% niacinamide.... Read more

Yes, I'm experiencing skin purging after using Somethinc 10% Niacinamide Barrier Serum and I'm not MAD! I'm super happy because this product is working on my skin. ๏ธ How can I tell if this serum causes my skin to purge? Apart from acne in areas where I usually suffer, a good Niacinamide serum will clear microcomedone way faster, which is related to Niacinamide's job of increasing skin cell turnover. As a result, you'll rarely break out after this purging process! So, if you're purging while using Niacinamide, don't quit! The purpose of Somethinc's 10% Niacinamide Barrier Serum is to strengthen the skin barrier, brighten the skin, eliminate dark spots, reduce redness, and moisturize the skin. It's also suitable for all skin types, even acne-prone skin.... Read more

Prepare your skin and yourself for this purging time, because the first 1-2 days may be a little uncomfortable (according to my experience). Although not everyone will suffer it, it is possible that it will happen to you and that you will consider it as a skin disaster.... Read more

This somethinc niacinamide serum is the first niacinamide serum I've tried. Because my skin concern is not brightening, I've never tried a serum with a large niacinamide as the key ingredient. At first, like most people, I was also afraid to try thisq 10% because MinThin also advised me to try the 5% variant first. but thanks to sis @elitaaall they said I can layer with ampoule cica before using this serum n it works! I don't feel any irritation, itching or redness even though I haven't tried the 5% niacinamide serum. This serum contains 48% rose water & there is also beet extract which makes this serum have sufficient hydration for my dry skin. yes, enough but not very moisturizing in my opinion. oh yes, the focus of this serum can also strengthen the skin barrier so that it has 3 kinds of ceramides. My experience for less than a week hasn't changed significantly, but my skin when I wake up doesn't feel dull. I like the texture, it's thick & absorbs quickly, it feels good touching my skin <3 I really recommend you guys to try the 5% first, and patient is the key... brightening isn't enough for just a week or two! Come on, let's try somethin's niacin serum... Read more

๐ŸŒŸ Key Ingredients - Niacinamide 10 % - Zinc PCA - Glycerin - Ceramide NP - Ceramide AP - Ceramide EOP - Allantoin ๐ŸŒŸ Packaging It comes in a 20 ml matte glass bottle with a dropper as the applicator. ๐ŸŒŸ Texture The texture is milky white in color, quite thick but surprisingly not sticky and absorbs quickly on the skin. ๐ŸŒŸScent There is a particular scent but it's faint and doesn't bother me. ๐ŸŒŸ My Experience I love this serum since it helps relieve redness and itching that I had a few weeks ago. Even after using this product, my skin barrier is much better than before. My skin has become less irritated since using it. In addition, my skin also feels well moisturized afterwards.... Read more

๐Ÿ“– What it Does ๐Ÿ“– โ€ข Brightening โ€ข Improves Skin Texture โ€ข Barrier Strengthening โ€ข Moisturising โ€ข Reduces Pigmentation โ€ข Reduces Redness โ€ข Controls Sebum Production โ€ข Nourishing โ€ข ๐Ÿง–โ€โ™€๏ธ My Experience ๐Ÿง–โ€โ™€๏ธ I used up the 5% first then went onto the 10%. As I had been using a 10% Niacinamide from another brand (which I replaced with the Somethinc), when I used the 5% Somethinc I didn't see much brighteningย  but what I did feel was my barrier strengthening, there were less break outs and redness has reduced. I then went on to use the 10% Somethinc Niacinamide and that's when I saw my skin get brighter.ย  My skin was less oily and felt so smooth. I used the Niacinamide in the morning and night in the serum stage, after toner and before moisturiser. I felt that my skin was a little sticky from the serum so I put less, 4-5 drops which I pat on and it worked. I felt no irritation from this. ๐Ÿชด Highlight Ingredients ๐Ÿชด โ€ข Rosa Damascena Flower Water (Rose) - Skin Conditioning โ€ข โ€ข Niacinamide - Smoothing โ€ข โ€ข 3 Types of Ceramide - Skin Conditioning โ€ข ๐Ÿ‘ƒ Smell ๐Ÿ‘ƒ No noticeable smell ๐ŸŒˆ Colour๐ŸŒˆ Cloudy white ๐ŸŒต Texture ๐ŸŒต Medium weight serum ๐ŸŽ Packaging ๐ŸŽ 20ml.

my hollygrail me, why? because this can prevent my acne, even during menstruation my acne never appears, you can also do spot treatment, just put it on the pimple, the next day the skin won't hurt and acne won't appear, another effect, this can brighten facial skin , moisturizes, and quickly removes acne scars, but unfortunately, this wears off very quickly.....

vegan serums which contain 3 types of Ceramide, Zinc, and Hydrolyzed Algae Extract. They claim to help strengthen skin barrier, lighten dark spots, reduce acne and irritation, and moisturize skin. I normally use 10% Niacinamide and my skin has adapted to it. But I once saw from a derma post that optimum results can be achieved with 5% concentration. Therefore, I use these 2 in rotation in the AM. Serums are lightweight with slight viscosity. Didn't irritate my skin and they both do a good job of controlling excess sebum. Neither pilled on me, yay! I have few tiny marks on my left cheek and this serum seemed to have lightened them.... Read more

This product is doing something amazing to my skin. I used to have quite bad acnes that left me with clusters of pie and pih. I have been using two bottles of this serum and it actually helps a lot with fading them, it makes my skin feel plump and it controls oil production on my skin. It has a cloudy milky white liquid appearance, it spreads and absorbs easily which is why I have no problem with using it day and night, with no pilling when I use it under makeup or sunscreen. Another great point for this product is the affordable price.... Read more

It somehow feels a little bit greasy when it is first applied but the feeling goes away after it was absorbed well by my skin. I also sense that it may leave me with some flushing too, but it is just for a short while after application.... Read more
