Good!

Normally I will apply moisturizer in day time and apply this during night time only as I feel like it is heavy-like for my oily skin. This is my practice when in Malaysia. During my trip to Belgium in winter, I notice that my skin started to breakout due to the different weather. Even with moisturizer application, it does not stopped the breakout. Then I applied Niacinamide day and night there and I does not have breakout anymore.

Great product!

i absolutely loved this serum! It does a great job and is at a very affordable price point.I am on my second bottle already and intend to purchase a third.

The product does foam a little bit if you spread it around so i recommend patting it into the skin.

It does it's job. Slowly but surely!

I have a very oily and acne-prone skin. At first when I applied this serum I hated the fact that i couldn't see the results instantly. Because of all the hype around this product I was hoping that once I apply it I will get bright, even-toned skin with no blackheads or whiteheads. Well, after 2 months of periodically using niacinamide ( 4-5 days a week, switching with vitamin c serum at some evening routines), I can say that I have achieved my goal. My skin is brighter than it has ever been for years. I'm getting less breakouts and the ones I get go away real quick. I love this product and I am definitely buying more.
Tip: Don't apply it once a week and wait for great results. You have to use it frequently in order to see changes.
Tip 2: BE PATIENT.
