Helpful with clearing my skin, not as much with scarring

I worked up to using this solution morning and night. It has been the only serum in my routine for about 3 months now.

I have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin.

Before using this, I had pretty consistent painful cystic acne on my chin and some scarring.

In the since I have been using it, my skin is definitely clearer than before. I still get the occasional pimple (likely from stress) but they are no longer cystic or as angry as before.

I don't see myself not using this serum! I'm in maintenance mode regarding my skin congestion and brightness.

It didn't do as much for scarring as I would have hoped but I am going to incorporate AA 2% + HA for that now.

doesnt do anything to dry skin

at first, it stings a lil bit it & gave me a breakout which never happened to me bc i have dry skin. (normally i would get a hormonal pimple only) so i stopped using. then after two weeks i started using it again to finish it up and my skin doesn't feel anything. no more stinging and breakout. idk why. could it be purging the first time? anyway it didnt do anything to my skin. i dont like the texture. maybe this serum isnt for me. would not purchase again. but i would try other brands niacinamide serum. just not this one.

Oily and acne prone skin must be love this!!

if you guys have oily skin, acne prone, clogged pores, dullness, uneven skin tone, or maybe just wanna repair and get strengthen back your skin barrier, I'd be recommend it to you. it works as such an oil control, to fights the acne, to cleans and unclogged your pores, also it can reduces the pores appearance, to brighten up your skin, the skin barrier repair, and the sign of early aging preventions. when you use it together with BHA or esp the Salicylic acid, it will gives you an amazing result! But always to remind, do it as what as your skin needed. always check the ingredient lists to find out of what the compositions you should/ shouldn't have to avoid, the amount percent on each the ingredients as used, and last but not least is always make sure to know of your skin tolerance to the reactions are caused by the active ingredients.
