The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

 

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a bestselling serum from the skincare experts at The Ordinary. Developed to help clear congested complexions and minimise the appearance and severity of blemishes, Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a must-have for oily and acne-prone skin.

 

This high-performance treatment, which is enriched with vitamins and minerals, can help to transform the texture of uneven skin. The serum also helps other treatments to work more effectively for a clearer and less-congested complexion.

 

 

  • Key benefits of The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
  • High-strength serum for skincare congestion
  • Can be used as part of an anti-acne skincare routine
  • Helps to balance sebum levels
  • Oil-free and non-comedogenic formulation
  • 30ml

 

How does The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% work?

Niacinamide, otherwise known as Vitamin B3, and Zinc are naturally occurring substances in the body. These ingredients are useful in a skincare routine to decongest skin and balance sebum levels. The combination of these two potent ingredients helps to battle blemishes by reducing bacteria on the skin, regulating oil production, and minimising the appearance of pores.

 

Niacinamide improves the skin’s moisture-retention abilities whilst boosting the skin’s natural defense system. Zinc repairs skin damaged by acne and congestion.

 

The high concentrations of both Niacinamide and Zinc in this powerful serum from The Ordinary help to quickly clear up complexions and calm any breakouts.

 

How to use The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a powerful water-based serum that should be introduced carefully into a skincare routine. It should be used only once daily, morning or night, and applied before moisturiser and oil treatments.

 

If you are also using a Vitamin-C-based serum, the Niacinamide and Zinc serum should be applied at the opposite time of day. So if you use vitamin C in the morning, use Niacinamide and Zinc in the evening, as the two can interact negatively with each other.

 

Who is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% suitable for?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is best for those with oily and acne-prone skin. This healing serum can help reduce the severity and frequency of breakouts whilst balancing oil levels.

 

What is the difference between The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and a retinol or salicylic acid treatment for treating acne?

Although The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% contains a combination of powerful ingredients, it can help clear congested skin more gently than both retinol and salicylic acid can. Those with sensitive skin should be cautious when applying retinol and salicylic acid, as they can cause irritation and sensitivity. The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% does not come with these same potential side effects.

 

Retinol and salicylic acid work as peels on the skin, removing a layer of damaged and acne-prone skin cells to reveal a fresher and clearer complexion below. These two ingredients should be used sparingly and introduced into a skincare routine slowly. The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% does not work in the same way, as it simply decongests skin and prevents future breakouts.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for acne?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is an excellent treatment product for clearing up acne, as the serum helps to reduce the severity and frequency of breakouts by banishing blemish-forming bacteria. Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% also helps to balance sebum production and minimise enlarged pores. All of these actions can dramatically improve the appearance of acne-prone skin.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for scarring and pigmentation?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% can assist in reducing the appearance and severity of scarring and pigmentation. To help with scarring and pigmentation, Niacinamide is best used in a skincare routine alongside vitamin C and retinol.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for rosacea?

Rosacea most commonly affects dry and dehydrated skin, so this serum is not recommended as a rosacea treatment. However, if you have an oily or congested complexion that is prone to rosacea, this product can be used to help balance sebum levels.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% comedogenic?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% has been developed to help clear congested skin and is non-comedogenic. It is also oil-free, vegan, and cruelty-free.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for wrinkles?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% has not been designed to improve ageing skin or wrinkles.

Works wonders
I bought this product due to having hormonal break outs and it has changed my life. It is very light and easy to apply and I saw results within a week. I know use it every night after removing my makeup. I have dehydrated skin and it has not dried my skin out as I feared it might instead I now have beautiful clear glowing skin x

Most Helpful Criticism

Broke me out
I started using a few new products at the same time (I know this isn't a good idea, lesson learned!) and started breaking out quite badly. After going back to basics and re introducing other products, I realised that this is what broke me out. Like really bad cystic acne. I know this has worked for a lot of people, but not for me unfortunately.
  1. Works wonders

    I bought this product due to having hormonal break outs and it has changed my life. It is very light and easy to apply and I saw results within a week. I know use it every night after removing my makeup. I have dehydrated skin and it has not dried my skin out as I feared it might instead I now have beautiful clear glowing skin x
  2. Great serum for oily skin

    This is my third bottle of this product. I have very oily skin that can be congested and many serums and creams sit on top of my skin, making it looked oilier. I was looking for something lightweight, easily absorbed and well priced and the Ordinary is it! I find this dries quickly on my skin and while I only use it at night (because I am so oily and sunscreen in the day makes things worse) I am finding that is enough to keep my skin feeling clear and dry. It hasn't had an impact on the clogged pores and the oil returns the next day, but it has been a really good serum so far and hasn't broke me out or made things worse. Would recommended to anyone with oily or slightly problematic skin. You can't go wrong with the price too.
  3. Unsure

    Although this product is very well priced, I don't think it works on normal-dry skin like mine. My skin broke out and went dry and red after using it so I haven't used it since. May work for oily skin.
  4. Pretty good

    I’ve bought my second bottle of Nia now since I ploughed through the first one pretty fast. I’ll slow down now and hopefully will see some changes with long term use. I have combo skin with some PIH so I’m hoping to lessen that with time and consistent use of this.
    I love how this is such an affordable alternative to other similar products on the market! You really can’t go wrong and I know I’m giving my skin a good quality vitamin boost with this serum.
  5. Good and affordable

    I used this and this has brought difference to my acne scars drastically. Although it will take time for it to be effective but have patience and wait for its magic.
  6. Great for blemishes and inflammation

    I've been using this for 2 months everyday now. It's great for reducing inflammation immediately! The redness reduces within a minute of applying and blemishes fade within days.
    Goes great after the salicylic acid
  7. Broke me out

    I started using a few new products at the same time (I know this isn't a good idea, lesson learned!) and started breaking out quite badly. After going back to basics and re introducing other products, I realised that this is what broke me out. Like really bad cystic acne. I know this has worked for a lot of people, but not for me unfortunately.
  8. Great product, but use less if sensitive skin

    I found this product really smoothed out my skin. It does sting a bit on sensitive skin though, so if you also have sensitive skin you might not be able to use it quite as often. Great product for great value though!
  9. Great for oily skin

    I have oily dehydrated skin and suffer from hormonal acne around my jawline, as well as a bumpy textured forehead mainly just below my hairline. I’ve only been using this for a week, but this in conjunction with other “The Ordinary” serums has made a ridiculous improvement in my skin. my hormonal acne has reduced - I currently have just one small pimple, compared to the usual 3 or 4. The bumps on my forehead have reduced by at least 50% already. I’ve been using this in the morning. The product dries quickly, and is easy to layer with other serums if needed. I have found it leaves a powdery feel to the skin if it is used by itself. My skin stays oil-free for longer now that I’m using this. I will certainly be repurchasing when I run out! Only giving 4 stars because I’m not sure how well this product would work without me using the other serums, and I’ve only been using it for a week.
  10. Great price for a great product

    A very light weight, nice texture, effective product for blemish prone skin. I introduced the product to help reduce blemishes and it seems to be working. It reduced the redness of a few blemishes overnight and dried them faster than normal. At this price it will remain part of my routine.
  11. Great product!

    Loved this product, i have fair skin and am prone to cystic breakouts which have only just begun at 24 years of age for 1 year. I found this reduced the intensity of spots and cleared them faster. LOVE!! 11/10 would recommend
  12. Patch test very carefully

    I ordered this product because I had heard it was great for clearing up acne, improving healing time and preventing new breakouts. I have combination skin with a couple of stubborn acne patches plus hormonal acne.
    I patch-tested the serum on a small area of forehead for a few days before moving to my whole forehead and then my whole face after a couple of weeks. I could see the effect it had on pimples and breakouts, causing pimples to shrink noticeably when it was left on overnight. However, after a couple of weeks of using it on my face, I started developing incredibly painful, large pimples on my cheeks where I had never had acne before. They took ages to heal and even though the niacinamide helped them heal quicker, I eventually realised that it was the cause of the breakouts. Once I stopped using it, the new breakouts stopped happening and the existing pimples healed completely after about a month.
    I'm sure other people will have different results and interestingly, it didn't cause breakouts on my forehead (which is more oily), so maybe it is well-suited to oily skin.
  13. Helps with acne scars!

    This product is so cheap and actually works on reducing the pigmentation of my acne scars! I like to use this product to spot treat the scars as when I apply it all-over it stings my skin (I have very tough skin that can usually handle chemicals very well).

    The one downfall is that this doesnt go well under my foundation; it pills and creates horrible texture so I only use it on non-makeup days or at night.
  14. Great for blemishes

    I found this product to be too drying for my skin to use regularly however I had some blemishes and used it as a spot treatment and it’s great! Will definitely be my go to for any breakouts.
  15. Amazing

    The best - my skin has never looked better, this works
  16. Helped with congestion

    I used this product for a 6 month period with other skincare and at the time didn't think it was making much of a difference, but I have noticed the difference since i ran out - i seem to get congestion around my chin area much more easily than when I was using Niacinamide. Given the price will definitely repurchase
  17. Excellent for the price point

    I have been using The Ordinary products for a few months now and really rate them, the niacinamide has been excellent for helping control recurring breakouts but also redness from rosacea, no adverse reactions at all with quite sensitive skin this is a great win!
  18. Well priced, not sure how well it works.

    I've been using The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% for over 5 weeks and have noticed some slight changes in pigmentation on my face, but nothing dramatic. I can't really tell if it's working or whether it's other The Ordinary products that I'm using in conjunction with it.
  19. Doubles as a mattifying primer

    Provides a beautiful matte finish for my foundation. Helps to clear up my skin quicker.
  20. light and good for breakouts!

    I have been using this serum every day for the last three weeks. I have combination skin and it can be quite sensitive. I got this serum because I recently moved to a dry climate and the result was congestion and dehydration. After using the product for a week I could already see a difference and now after three my skin is more hydrated and the congestion has been minimized a lot! Definitely value for money.
  21. Amazing

    Absolutely love this product. I have massive pores on my nose and across the top of my cheeks. After a week of using this product they are minimised. It's amazing what this product can do for the price.
  22. Great with smoothing out pigmentation.

    After using for 2 weeks my pigmentation has blended in more than I ever thought. Love it.
  23. Reduced pores

    I love this product, extremely affordable but has also given me the best results in comparison to any other 'pore minimising' product I've used. i use every night or when i notice my skin looks congested and the next morning my pores are significantly reduced, my skin texture is a lot more even and congestion is gone.

    highly recommended.
  24. If you’re suffering from acne, this is the ONLY product you need

    I’ve been suffering from cystic hormonal acne for more than 6 months and this product has worked miracles on my skin within one week of using it! I’ve stopped getting new acne lesions and it’s even helped to remove all the stubborn “bumpy” acne underneath my skin (the type that stays there forever and you can’t even pop/squeeze even if you tried!). This product has made every single other acne-treating product on my shelf redundant, including products containing salicylic acid, vitamin A and tea-tree oil. I do recommend using this serum both night and day for best results.

  26. Great product

    Great for spot treatments and shrinks pores.
  27. Amazing product for my skin

    This stuff actually really helped my skin! I swear I have tried so many products but nothing like from this product!
    My skin is combination / OILY T-Zone! Hated it, especially because my makeup is only moisturiser and nude by nature.
    My skin is less oily, more bright, clear- even my boyfriend commented!

    Must try considering the low price point also.
  28. Good for oil control

    I bought this serum for my husband who has extremely oily skin (not sensitive). He has been using it in the morning time. It's summer time here in Adeliade and it has definitely helped him with oil control. So yeah, I can recommend it to someone with oily skin.
  29. smooths my skin

    This serum smooths out my skin texture and reduces the size of my pores. I have noticed a bit of oil control too since I've started using this product. I haven't had any new breakouts since using it.
  30. Small amount only needed

    Been using for a week at night before my moisturiser , skin feels less congested and gentle on my face for rosacea
  31. Reduces blemishes, great price!

    I love this product because it really reduces the blemishes, works better then any other product I’ve tried, doesn’t get rid of them completely because it’s hormonal acne but still so happy with the results!
  32. Miracle Product...For Me!

    I cannot overstate how much I LOVE Niacinamide. Like, really, really, really love. Like it's the one and only product I'd take to a desert island kinda love. Here's why:

    I had some nasty breakouts on my cheeks caused by taking a hair-growth supplement (which I'll refrain from naming here) and this product totally cleared it up. Overnight. It's the only time an over-the-counter product has had such an instant and lasting effect.

    It's also eliminated those tiny weird little white bumps you get between your bottom lip & your chin. You know, the ones you see when you push your tongue in between your bottom teeth and lip and make funny faces in the mirror - don't pretend like you don't do it too ;) It's also regulated my oily t-zone - sometimes I don't even have to powder my nose at lunchtime now. This all happened within about a week or two of daily morning use.

    It's not supposed to be used with Vitamin C products, but it pairs really well with TO's MAP, which is a derivative. So you don't have to do without your Vitamin C addiction if you love the effect it has on boosting your SPF effectiveness, like I do.

    Be warned though - Niacinamide doesn't agree with everyone. If it does (and I truly hope you're one of the lucky ones) - hot damn, it's nothing short of a miracle product!
  33. The holy grail

    I'm 15 with combination/oily skin and have acne around my cheeks/mouth and forehead area and this worked so well for me!! so far can see a grand difference in oil production and my overall breakouts.

    ive used it for about a week now and its cleared my under the skin pimples and my whiteheads well.Just a disclaimer that this product doesnt work well for people with really dry skin under your eyes and that the product goes through a stage where it makes u breakout for about a day or two because its gets all the bad stuff out from your pores but aftrer that stage youre good to go with this product :)
  34. Great price point, not sure if it is working

    Fantastic price, however I've been using this for several weeks and I haven't seen an improvement in the clarity of my skin as yet. It does feel slightly smoother, but doesn't look any more even toned. For this price, I will persevere and give it another couple of months.
  35. Didn’t work for me

    I have combo skin and hormonal acne, this serum didn’t work within a week. It may work for people with dry skin but didn’t do anything for me. Was such a shame because it’s such good value
  36. Okay but probably not right for my skin type

    I don't think this is right for my particular skin type as i have aging skin that is prone to break outs. Probably best for younger skin
  37. I like it, i guess

    It goes on well and doesn't pill or anything but I'm just not sure if it's doing much
  38. Not Terrible

    I have been using this product each morning for over a month now and I can't say that I see any noticeable changes in my skin. I use this with the
    The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% in my daily routine to assist with my breakouts that have really increased over the past 12 months. It may be too early to tell so I will continue to use the product until I have finished it. The price is great and it will last you for ages as you only require a small amount. Fingers crossed it starts to show some improvements to my skin and reduces my breakouts over time :)
  39. Maybe I use too many Ordinary products

    I went a bit nuts with Ordinary range and bought a whole bunch so I don’t feel like this specific one has made a huge different. I don’t use frequently. I find the ‘buffet’ to be a good option where my skin is in decent condition.
  40. Controls blemishes and so affordable!

    The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc is a staple in my skincare regimen.
    I am in my mid-40’s and still getting blemishes but since I started using this product, my skin is clear almost all of the time. If I get slack and don’t use it for a few days, the pimples reappear!
    This product should not be used at the same time as any Vit C products as they cancel each other out. I use Niacinamide in the morning and Vit C products in the evening.
    I purchased this product for my teenage nieces and it improved their skin very quickly. At the price point, you absolutely cannot lose by giving this a go.
  41. No frills B serum to help dehydrated skin!

    Thanks for this serum as an alternative to the $80+ b serums out there! I use it in the day under moisturiser with sunscreen and at night before my heavy night cream.

    I think it's great so far! I like the packagaing which allows me to drop it in to my hand and not contaminate the product with my fingers.
  42. Great for oily skin

    This product has definitely reduced oiliness and breakouts for me and smoothed out my skin. Feels super light to apply as well, not heavy like a lot of serums
  43. Worked wonders

    I started using this product about three days ago, at least once a day under my moisturiser. I am surprised at how quickly I am noticing results - my skin has less redness now, looks more flawless, and the pores around my nose have gotten smaller. Would definitely recommend, especially for those looking for something effective while still cheap.
  44. Gentle Product

    This is a very mild and gentle product, which I use most days in the morning before applying moisturiser. It is hard to tell whether it keeps my pores un-congested. I tend to put it only on the areas I usually breakout (chin, forehead and down the nose). For the price I think it's a good investment if you are worried about the odd breakout.
  45. Disappointing

    My skin did not improve at all with over 2 months of twice daily use of this product. It also caused some initial irritation for the first week of use.
  46. Great!

    Best product for my skin so far. Love it so much!
  47. Part of my regular routine now

    I love this product, this is bottle number 2 I'm up to. I found it helped to even out skin tone and actually worked really well to minimise breakouts if used straight away. Also had the added benefit of helping to lighten some of my pigmentation (only very slightly but that's still a win for me)
  48. 10 months in and still lovin' it

    I have combination skin that leans towards the oily side especially in the summer. This has really diminished some of my old acne scars and helped keep my skin shine free for longer.
  49. Smooth

    Perfect for my skin type
  50. Wow!!

    This Serum is great. Have just started using it & can already see a difference in my pore size & amount of oil production. I have also noticed less redness/blotchiness in my face when I wake in the morning. Love it. Have been using TO's Lactic Acid for about the last 6 months which I have also loved but might stick to this one for a while now. Not sticky on the skin either & absorbs quickly.
  51. Great for pigmentation/sun battered skin

    I purchased this for my hubby, to try and help some pigmentation around his temples from years of sun worshipping during surfing. He used it in the lead up to the wedding about six months ago, and he's about to order his second bottle. He's found it's really made a difference in lightening his sun spots and moisturising in general.
  52. Life Changer

    If you are prone to oily skin and acne this is a must have, this absolutely changed my skin, noticeable difference within a couple of days use, this has dramatically reduced acne scarring, pore size and keeps most breakouts at bay, I use it in conjunction with the glycolic toning solution and my skin has never been better! for the price its incredible and worth trying!
  53. Such a good product!

    I have combination skin prone to hormonal breakouts and dryness. This serum is so affordable, keeps my oily T-zone under control without drying out the rest of my face, and has definitely helped me to maintain a clearer complexion. Since I started using this serum, the tone of my skin is a lot more even and I've noticed my pores are also smaller + I don't get whiteheads or blackheads as nearly as often as I used to. I'm so glad I came across this serum, it's definitely become a staple in my skincare routine.
  54. Not worth it

    I had her high expectations on trying this. Unfortunately it broke me out, if you have acne prone skin I’d say don’t gamble with this based on the good reviews I did and was not happy. The only place I use this now in on my nose area where I get blackheads and congestion and things it! I don’t see an improvement though.
  55. Makes me break out

    Sadly this product just doesn't seem to help my acne prone combination skin, which sucks as it seems to be very popular. It really just makes me break out more, even when used for long periods of time.
  56. It’s ok

    I have use 2 bottle of this product, haven’t really notice clear result. But it did lessen the oil in my face. Will still continue to use due of that, it is good price so doesn’t break the bank!
  57. New to the product

    Have only been using this product for a week so haven't seen any clear results. Have heard and seen amazing results from friends that have used this product.
  58. Helps

    I've been using this product for a good year and use it each morning underneath my moisturiser.
    I have definitely noticed that it helps me maintain a good complexion (I still get the odd pimple though!), however I don't feel that it has given much improvement with my acne scarring.
    I'm sticking with the routine to see if it needs a long-term commitment, but may consider trying another Ordinary product to help shift those stubborn marks.
  59. Fantastic

    Great product to far - I have been using it for a few weeks. I am layering different ordinary products and this one is my favourite. It helps with my acne prone skin, i've noticed it clear up.
  60. Holy grail product for oily skin!

    This product is amazing for oily skin I noticed results so quick and the oil production of my skin has decreased dramatically, I use it in the morning and night time after cleansing and it has made such a difference to my skins overall look and feel. Couldn't recommend this more for people who struggle with oil.
  61. Not sure what effect it has

    I've been using this consistently for 3 months, not really sure if it's made much difference. In my mind 30s and main issues are pigmentation, uneven skin tone and congestion. I'll probably purchase again just because it's a good price.
  62. Broke Me Out!

    i have heard such amazing things about this product and from reading the reviews i had such high hopes! Unfortunately this broke me out so bad! I usually only get pimples on my chin bu this gave me pimples all over my face! Im not sure if that is normal and it is just purging my skin but it wasnt something i had read about before purchasing! Im actually really dissapointed as i was sure this would be a great product.
  63. I love this

    This niacinamide is great, it works really well for my combo skin, helps prevent breakouts and has improved my skin texture. This is one of my skincare staples!!
  64. Amazing

    I have noticed a huge difference since using this product. Great for smoothing out and getting rid of textural irregularities
  65. Improved my Acne

    I really love this product it’s just few days I purchased this product and it works perfectly. I have oily skin acne pro and since I started using this product in my AM and PM skin routine my skin doesn’t produce oil and acne anymore. Definitely I purchase it again and it became one of my favourites!!
  66. Amazing Product!

    I can't believe how quickly I saw results with this product.
    I purchased The Niacinamide & Zinc based on a recommendation made by the lovely staff at Adore Beauty. I suffer from quite bad hormonal break outs on my chin and jaw line around the time of my period and they take a while to heal.
    I found that this product helped dramatically to reduce the redness, inflammation & pain of the pimples.
    The price of this product is amazing, less than $10 for a product that is life-changing. 110% would recommend this product.
  67. This broke me out

    I was looking for something to help with oily skin. As it says it is key to decreasing oil and resulting pimples. However, this was not the case for me. It broke me out and my pores felt more congested. It also felt really sticky when applying.
  68. Worked well for acne scars

    I'm on to my third bottle of this product! I have oily/acne prone skin and this has helped me reduce redness and scars. I use it at night.
  69. Amazing

    I have combination/oily skin.
    I have used this product in conjunction with their Buffet & Retinol and have had amazing results.
    I honestly wasn't expecting results to be honest due to the low price point but it does what it says.
    I usually get breakouts around my nose/mouth area and since using this morning & night i have had none. It literally stops it in its tracks! My redness has dramatically improved also.
    This is keeper for me.
  70. Extra-ordinary

    I'm 24 and this is the first serum I've ever tried because I wasn't really into skincare before.

    My skin condition: combination skin, a little dry on the chin area, a bit flaky on my upper nose area, and very oily on my nose and upper lip area. I also have big pores, and often have redness.

    I just started exploring various skincare, and I'm hooked by The Ordinary's products, this one in particular. It's not sticky on my skin, absorbed really quick, and my face looks brighter after only a few times use in the morning and before I go to bed. It's very simple yet effective at the same time, at least for my skin type. One thing to note is that this serum can't be combined with Vitamin C at the same time according to my research about the product because apparently people experience breakouts. I use this serum after The Ordinary Glycolic Toning Solution(PM) or PIXI Glow Toner(AM) and so far my skin looks smooth, nice and clean.

    Love!
  71. Worked on 1st bottle but no clear improvement on 2nd one

    With the first bottle, I could see visible results on my post acne inflammation. The serum is non scented and worked great on evening out my skin tone after a few uses. However, as I am on the second bottle, I have not seen similar result. Also the serum slightly peels when used together with facial oil.
  72. Amazing for troubled skin

    This product is truly amazing I use it AM and PM. I have been using it for 2 weeks now and it has significantly reduced the appearance of my pores. I have very oily skin and usually get break outs. I honestly feel like it has helped reduce the oiliness and I haven't had a zit in 2 weeks! The consistency is great, a true serum, it doesn't feel sticky and I use it underneath foundation/concealer everyday!
  73. Highly recommended

    I would highly recommend this product for any skin types! it controls your oil production, reduces acne breakouts. It's absorbed to your skin really well, leaving no residue at all.
  74. Affordable & reliable

    I have had results with this product after daily using for 6 weeks. I have acne localised to my chin & only apply this serum in that area, it turns white once it makes contact with the skin & absorbs easily. You can layer products on top of it which is a bonus!
  75. Just amazing - keeps my skin clear and oil free

    This product is amazing. I will have to keep a stocktake for life. I used to struggle with bad spots and excessive oil in the T zone. This is the only product I've found that tackles both. I wear it daily in the morning underneath my makeup as a part of my skincare routine. It controls my skins naturals oils and keeps my makeup fresh until the end of the day. 5 stars out of 5!
  76. alright

    haven’t seen any clear results yet. hasn’t got rid of my scaring but has reduce my pimples and haven’t got any on my forehead in a while
  77. Made my breakouts worse!

    I didn’t like this product at all. It made my breakouts worse and dried my skin out terribly. Would not recommend.
  78. Pimple free

    I'm in my mid 20’s and have experienced the worst acne for the past few months and relentlessly tried to find products to help with no luck...until a friend recommended The Ordinary range. I’d heard about it so decided to give it a go, specifically this serum. Within about 1 week I noticed a difference. My problem areas are my forehead and t-zone due to oily skin, but the serum reduced oil production whilst wearing it.
    The product itself glides on effortlessly with no tacky residue and no strong scent. I combine it with the Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA and have recently purchased the Salicylic Acid 2% to try. Very happy and pimple free.
    Also, it’s cheap!!!
  79. Very good

    I have really oily skin and suffer from acne but after the first week of using this my skin has nearly fully cleared up definitely recommend for those who suffer from acne
  80. New Staple in my sensitive, dry skincare routine!

    WOW, this product is a lifesaver! I have a friend with bad cystic acne who uses it, and it is also amazing for my dry, sensitive skin! It helps with congestion, it aids hydration, it's soothing, and best of all it doesn't even cost $10. I am going through this more quickly than my hyaluronic acid because I LOVE it so much! I use it pretty much every AM and PM and have noticed amazing increases in the clearness, dewiness, hydration, and health of my skin. Absolute holy grail serum, I can't believe I didn't try it sooner!
  81. Improves skin

    The Ordinary Niacinamide and Zinc helps improve the appearance of the skin. I apply it at night and it reduces the appearance of blemishes. Great for skin confidence and a great price.
  82. Made my skin worse

    I tried this product after hearing such great things. I had been using skinstitut religiously and cleared my skin to a point I wouldn't wear foundation. But after trying this my skin reverted back and all those tiny little annoying spots came back from one application. Not sure if you're skin is supposed to go through a purging process but I'm not willing to stick it out and see as my skinstitut products cleared my skin right up.
  83. Broke me out

    I had high hopes for this product after reading all the glowing reviews. I have oily and acne prone skin and was hoping this would become my holy grail. Instead, it broke me out in little bumps and whiteheads and irritated my skin. This went straight to the thrash.
  84. Really great product!

    I really like this product. You only need to use about two drops so it last months! I use it at night time and my skin seems to be improving (redness, smoothness). I have dry/combination skin. I have just purchased my second bottle of this!
  85. Seems to refine pores

    I’ve been using this for a week and my skin does look more refined and I think brighter? Love the jelly texture and easily goes under makeup without effecting it’s wear.
  86. All the hype is true...

    After initially learning about The Ordinary Brand I was eager to try what seemed to be their most widely revered product. As someone who has suffered with adult cystic acne for many years with countless different products, I was hoping to strike some gold.

    This simple combination has changed my life for the better. I currently use this product twice a day and have seen a drastic decrease in not only the amount of pimples but also the severity.

    When I initially started this product I used sparingly once a day. Until i was comfortable I had given my skin time to get used to it. At first I didn't see a drastic improvement but perseverance is key!
  87. A fave product of mine

    This was the first serum I tried and I have been so pleased. It is easy to apply and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. I noticed a very visible difference in my complexion after just a couple of uses. I am very satisfied with how long it has lasted, overall very happy with this product.
  88. Helps to keep pesky pimples at bay as well as brightens skin tone.

    Overall, a great product. I have acne prone/ oily skin and this formula instantly zaps away small pesky pimples as well as brightens my olive/ tanned skin. It is by no means a product that cures all but it does decrease the size and the look of a cystic pimple that likes to surprise me some menstrual mornings. I have recommended this serum to a few friends and received nothing but pleasant experiences by using this product. P.s. I intend to repurchase and continue using this in my skincare routine. I hope this helps!
  89. Effective with regular use.

    I have oily and easily clogged up skin and have been using this every morning after cleansing and before any of my heavier products such as facial oil and moisturiser for almost a year.
    I have found my pores refined. Less oiliness. And much less sensitivity to other products.
    It is something that I find must be used constantly in my routine to have effect, but totally worth it :)
  90. Very effective

    The product is a little strong to my sensitive skin but it’s great, it really helps with congested skin and pigmentation
  91. Clear skin

    I have oily/combination skin - get lots of blackheads and occasional breakouts. This has been the most effective product so far in preventing breakouts and keeping my skin clear and even looking it. I use it in combination with marine hyaluronics and a face scrub.
  92. Smooth, clear skin

    Can't say enough good things about The Ordinary! I've been using this along with their salicylic acid and my skin has been lovely and clear. I have pretty oily, acne prone skin and haven't had any new spots come up since I started using these products. my skin is smooth and my pores are starting to look smaller too.

    I use this morning and night after cleansing and toning and before creams or oils.
  93. Wonderful

    I have been using this product for approximately 2 weeks on my combination skin and can already see a huge improvement in the appearance. My pore size has reduced greatly. A great product at a very affordable price. No sensitivity issues.
  94. Works well to heal up blemishes

    I have normal to dry skin with texture, blackheads, congestion’s and the odd breakout. I have noticed that this helps clear up any breakouts that start to appear and also clear up some congestion. It also helps to hydrate skin. I only use this in the PM as I use the TO hylauronic acid with the skinstitut even blend serum wan bit c powder,
  95. Love this product

    I have combination skin prone to congestion,This product takes a while to have noticeable effects but it has shrunk my pores, reduced congestion and regulates oily skin. I also find I have less congestion and breakouts when I apply this before sunscreen/makeup and my makeup stays longer on my oily skin. I am on to my 3rd bottle now and will continue to repurchase
  96. Love it!

    I have combination skin (on the oily side) - blackheads and pimples if I don't take care. I am convinced this product is what got me through 4 weeks of Christmas, New Years and birthday parties without getting a breakout. Would 100% recommend.
  97. Good product, great price

    Purchased this product at the suggestion of my dermatologist... couldn’t believe it when I went to purchase and it was so cheap.

    I use it morning and night, goes well under makeup and doesn’t irritate my somewhat sensitive skin.
  98. Good product and good value

    I have been using this for a while now and have been impressed with its blemish-fighting abilities. It has reduced the number of new outbreaks and my pores do look visibly smaller. The only thing is that it is quite strong and so I would avoid putting it anywhere near the delicate eye area. I got a slight rash and redness when I wasn't being careful about that.
  99. Permanent part of my regime

    I’ve started using The Ordinary products in the last month and this has become a permanent part of my daily regime. When looking for a new regime, one of my biggest concerns was fading old scars and marks and this has helped skin looks clearer and brighter. There are days I’m able to skip makeup because of how clear my skin is looking. Definitely recommend.
  100. Amazing product

    Glides on well. Refreshing and cool. I use it in the morning after I've washed my face. Then after use, I'd continue with my SPF moisturiser, then make up.
    It seems to keep my skin clear. Will definitely continue purchasing this product for every day use.
