Niaciamide is MVP of skincare, zinc is great for controlling breakouts, no fragrance and the price is great too. ... Read more

Zinc can be irritating to some. Also the consistency makes it a bit hard to layer. ... Read more

DESCRIPTION: This serum is made up of 10% Niacinamide and 1% Zinc. The Niacinamide is meant to reduce the appearance of blemishes and congestion. The Zinc is meant to regulate excess sebum activity. This product is suitable for all skin types. 🎯 I have acne prone skin so I decided to incorporate Niacinamide into my routine to see how well it regulates break outs. I usually get a few blemishes every few weeks but I haven’t had any major break outs. 😁 I use this daily at nights and the results have been fantastic so far! It hasn’t irritated or caused my skin to dry. SIDE NOTE: 🌱🐰 This product is vegan, cruelty-free, and formulated without alcohol, silicone, nuts, gluten, and fragrance.... Read more

🤔 I guess the 10% is just too strong for my skin, as I kept getting large cyst acne on my chin, and it lasted way beyond any purge period.... Read more

📖 What it Does 📖 • Reduces Appearance of Blemishes • Sebum Production Balancing • Minimises Appearance of Pores • Calming • Smoothing • 🧖‍♀️ My Experience 🧖‍♀️ 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. 🪴 Highlight Ingredients 🪴 • Vitamin B3 - Smoothing • • Zinc - Sebum Control • 👃 Smell 👃 Slight chemical smell which quickly dissappears. 🌈 Colour🌈 Clear. It goes yellow/brown when it is oxidised. 🌵 Texture 🌵 Light gel like texture. 🎁 Packaging 🎁 Cloudy glass dropper bottle, with a clear glass dropper and white plastic twist top. 💭 Final Thoughts 💭 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. ⭐ Overall Score ⭐ 5/5... Read more

📢 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.... Read more

One of the most raved and hyped products I knew! And can't seem to just let pass it as it actually affordable. I bought this because I've been having too much sebum around my T-Zone and I hoped to lessen at least that. After 2weeks of using this product, I did notice that I did not wake up having an oily face. I was so happy!! And plus, what I really noticed was, the appearance of my pores, tho not poreless (there's no such thing as that) wasnt expecting anything more about this one but it just delivers results that I did not expect. It helped with my pimple marks actually. Over time application aand just being consistent. I sometimes had redness over my cheeks before, and this does the job too! It did not cause my skin any irritation or purging or break out. Although this does has some faction if whether it works or not, I just focus and listen to my skin. We have different skin types, skin concerns, diet, sleeping routine, skin care routine that might affect one's product effectivity. This does not mean that what works for me, works for you, vice versa. Overall, this product helped me a lot, until today! (I keep on repurchasing, and will be running out again, but I had my stash ready)... Read more

This smells glue-like and can be bothering. The consistency of the texture is sticky but it dries out pretty fast. It tuns into white bubblish when you apply it in a rubbing motion. (Advised to press it onto your face when applying)... Read more

✨ Key ingredients: *Niacinamide (Form of Vitamin B3), Good for oil control, forming skin Barrier, an anti-oxidant, targets Hyperpigmentation ✨Texture: It is a liquid that glides onto the skin. ✨ Experience: this serum has a faint smell which I don’t mind. You only need 3 drops to cover your face. After rubbing in, it may be a little sticky (I recommend using it on damp skin (If you skin isn’t sensitive/can handle that because it may cause irritation) and moisturizing before it dries out) It leaves the skin with an immediate nice glow! ✨Price+Size: 5,90€/30ml; 10,60€/60 ml in their online shop. I find it a good price. ✨ Conclusion: A Holy Grail for me. It helped bringing my sebaceous filaments+break outs under control and the glow is just amazing. 5/5 🌟... Read more

I just love this serum. It is so great and light weight that it gets easily absorbed into my skin. It really helped to reduce the appearance of my pores. I have been using this serum for quite a long time and I did see lightening of scars. I am on my third bottle and will definitely buy it again. It is one of my holy grail product. one of the best things about this product is it is affordable. It include the serum in my morning as well as in my night time skincare routine.... Read more

Its the best serum to use during your menstrual cycle. It control excessive sebum production which, when I’m in my second week, helps me regulate it and avoide getting more papules and any inflammed pimples that will be very difficult to control and avoid scarring.... Read more

The consistency is sticky and when not applied correctly you get a foam consistency in the skin that can only dissapear if you tap and massage well the serum into your skin.... Read more
