initially it caused my pores to seemingly erupt. Perhaps it was purging my skin. Overall it smoothed out the texture of my skin and brightened my complexion. Would recommend pairing it with a good hydrator and an acne spot treatment that can be layered.
i absolutely adore this product! my skin seems to really like it and it's helped a lot in evening my skin tone, my skin texture, and it also helped control the amount of closed comedones i had. highly recommend!
It's difficult to explain what this product did to my skin. It just made it better if it makes sense.
I started using this Niacinamide serum in the evenings with a bit of a nonchalance and I wish I'd paid more attention in the beginning so I would know how long it took for me to really start noticing the change. My skin visibly cleared up mostly from the little bumps. I still got some breakouts, but considerably less of them. I remember being very happy with my skin and I cannot attribute this very good skin period to any other product, as I am mainly using the same products.
When I stopped using this product, when it finally ran out, I was shocked how big the difference actually was when all my hormonal bumps started creeping back!
The Ordinary products are so inexpensive too, I got away with using some very cheap creams supplementing them with mainly this product. Previously I had been paying a lot more for very expensive moisturisers so that they wouldn't cause me to break out, with the Niacinamide there was simply no need. I am definitely repurchasing as soon as possible!
After I had yet another breakout, i figured enough was enough and decided to revamp my routine. I added this first and after a week, i could already see a old pimples shrinking and fading! Even new ones that formed shrank immediately after a couple of days. Would definitely repurchase
I like this product a lot, but the pilling is AWFUL. I try not to worry about it but if I layer any products it pills terribly and I worry my skin is no longer absorbing it. I love the high concentration of Niacinamide and that it includes Zinc! I am noticing improvements on my scarring and hyperpigmentation.
Had very high hopes for it, for everyone i know who used it worked like a miracle, unfortunately, didn't work for me.
After 2 applications got much smother skin and more even tone, but after third use irritated my skin, tried to apply again 2 times, the same reaction
For my huge pores it made a great difference when I used it in the morning, they were smaller and tighter. Kept oiliness at bay for 10+ hours. The only problem with this formulation is that it pills awfully under sunscreen (organic or mineral) and makeup. Currently I use it in the evenings only, but I can still see results the next day. I guess that the ingredients for a more pleasurable texture (silicones maybe?) would interfere with the absorption of the actives in the skin.
