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.

Most Helpful Positive

Excellent- helped with cystic acne
I have bad hormonal acne and this product calmed my redness and and reduced my breakouts. It's easy to apply, but I do get a pilling if i apply it too heavily, which is easy to do. It has no noticeable odour and has a lovely mattifying effect.

Most Helpful Criticism

Good, but not cosmetically elegant
It's a good necessity in skincare regimes and highly recommended for anti-aging skincare beginners. However, the texture is one of the worst in skincare serums -- it's tacky and pills like crazy when you layer it (I wouldn't even go as far as sunscreen + makeup, it even pills when you put basic face oil).

With that said, it's 10% niacinamide for $9.90 -- what more would you want, right? I still use this in my routine despite having other niacinamide products. Good to use at night for rotation from other more expensive niacinamide and on days that I don't plan to layer my skincare super thick.

Overall, a necessity for cheap.
  1. Excellent- helped with cystic acne

    I have bad hormonal acne and this product calmed my redness and and reduced my breakouts. It's easy to apply, but I do get a pilling if i apply it too heavily, which is easy to do. It has no noticeable odour and has a lovely mattifying effect.
  2. Great for blurring pores and texture on the skin

    I've only just incorporated this into my morning routine a week ago and can already see a difference. I use it straight after cleansing, before moisturising, then follow with my makeup routine as normal. Once my makeup is on, the pores around my t-zone and any face texture is basically blurred out, and it definitely also helps with the staying power of my makeup throughout the day. I have hormonal cystic acne along my jaw line, cheeks and neck, while having oily but also dehydrated skin, and by using this along with The Ordinary's Hyaluronic Acid, I can already see it helping reduce redness, smooth out my skin and add hydration. :)
  3. Great for the price

    This product works great. I use it every morning for my pigmentation. I haven't yet found a better substitute.

  5. Some improvement but not a game changer for me

    This gave me some improvement with my persistent adult acne and with overall skin tone. I haven't had the dramatic results that some others have had with this product but I do see a benefit and will continue to use.
  6. Loooooooove

    For basically the price of 2 x large soy flat whites, this is a long term lasting product (say 6 months ish) that works so effectly at tightening pores, softening skin and creating a subtle glow. Such a great product and I can’t think of any skin types it wouldn’t compliment
  7. Has helped my skin tone

    I previously was using a far more expensive similar serum but have found this works just as well. I have skin prone to redness and breakouts and found that it has aided in helping this. It’s not a complete solution by any means but a great addition for daily use.
  8. Great Stuff - Really Delivers Results

    Probably my favourite so far of The Ordinary serums so far.
    Has been great for my sensitive skin, much less redness, pore size has reduced significantly, and the oils in my skin have been far more noticeably balanced.
    All while also making my skin feel smoother, more hydrated and more comfortable all over.
    Very happy with this little beauty!
  9. It was okay

    I used this product for sometime but couldn't use it for longer as I was put on acne medication. But the time that I had used it for, it worked okay as I had really bad acne to begin with. It does not blend in straightaway, you have to wait for it to seep into your skin. Not sure if I'll buy this again.
  10. Amazing product

    I have been using this morning and night for the past week and I have already noticed a major difference in my skin. My skin looks so smooth and soft! I even went to work with no foundation as I was feeling so confident in my skin for the first time, my work colleagues actually thought I had make up on. Amazing product
  11. Perfect post cleanse treatment

    I use this after cleansing on face and neck, before heavier creams. It really helps to keep my skin clear and gives a real clean feeling you can't get with cleansing alone.
  12. I don't think it did much for me

    I didn't really notice any change for good or bad while using this product...i bought two and will finish them up but probably won't buy more..i have acne prone oily skin but didn't help those issues, one good thing is that my makeup applies ontop of this product really well, i think it makes my makeup look better in fact
  13. Game Changer

    Have been using this for the last 2-3 months now. I've noticed some improvement in the texture of my skin - the congestion has definitely improved and I've lost a lot of the little bumps that I had.
  14. Life changer!

    This is such a great product which I layer with others. My pores looked invisible and tight after each use. It keeps my hormonal acne at bay too. I’ve recommended to quite a few of my friends and they love it
  15. my skin hated this

    Love the ordinary, the moisturiser is my HG but this made my skin so red! I don't blame the brand, but something to be aware of that some people really react to niacinamide. This is probably the most affordable way to try it out though?
  16. Loved it

    I've been using this for a few week weeks now and absolutely love it.
    I've had oily, acne prone skin since I was a teen. Although I rarely suffer from breakouts anymore at 41, I was still bothered by issues with milia and blackheads. I've been using the Niacinamide morning and night along with The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% once or twice a week and now my skin is super soft and clear.
    I've since bought a second bottle for my daughter to try and will definitely be repurchasing more for myself when this one runs out.
  17. Great product :)

    I have been using this product about 4-5 days a week for a few months now and I must say when I use it I am less oily throughout the day and when used before makeup my makeup lasts a lot longer! I have extremely large pores throughout my t-zone and blackheads and I have noticed a difference in the size of my pores and the number of blackheads I have, they are still there of course but it has made a noticeable difference. For the price, you can't really go wrong and I am looking forward to seeing if it continues to make a difference.
  18. Great for oil control

    This is my second purchase of this product. I apply this religiously morning and night and find it great at controlling oil. I've also found over time that I don't need as much as I used to when I first started using it, which I think means its working. Just two small drops goes a long way for me. I haven't found that its had a huge impact on my redness but what it does for combating an oily T-zone makes up for that. I will continue using and purchasing this product.
  19. Ok product

    My skin feel quite hydrated in the mext morning. But the product take sometime to soak into my skin. However, very good price ;)
  20. Love it

    No reaction to using this every morning after cleansing. Skin feels smoother
  21. Break outs

    Im 30 years old and just have everyday stress. I am noticing im getting alot more breakouts like im a teenager again. Could I please get a skin care routine made for me please
  22. Great

    This is a great product! My skin improved dramatically while using this and the price is fantastic
  23. Great for spots

    So I use this whenever I see new little pimples popping up, it generally nips them in the but quite fast! And I love that about it. Couple of weeks ago I purchased my second bottle, it’s been sitting in the same place in my bathroom as my last, not in direct sunlight but obviously being a bathroom it is quite light.. anyway last night I noticed the entire contents of the bottle has disappeared!! I’m gobsmacked and have no idea where it’s gone, it was 80% full. Does this formula evaporate if left in a light place?? My last one didn’t! Lucky it’s so cheap! Now I’ll have to buy another bottle
  24. Good for some types of pigmentation

    It is good for post-breakout/pimple brownness, and for some of older people's pigmentation. I gave it to my mum to try and it significantly faded/got rid of some of her dark spots - but not all. So it is effective for some types of dark spots. It doesn't help with my dark spot of unknown cause that I was hoping to fade, though. I will keep repurchasing and using this because it has been touted to reduce or maybe prevent pigmentation. It however makes your skin shiny, so I use it at bedtime only.
    I find it doesn't do anything for breakouts or oil control or blackheads.
  25. Great!

    The product i love it and i heat it but i can leave with out it haha. Sometimes my breakouts disappear, but time to time Pum! I see very big pimples where i put the product.
    I used it for more than 3 months at night. Is very sticky dry.
  26. Loved it

    Have been using this for the last 2-3 months now. I've noticed some improvement in the texture of my skin - the congestion has definitely improved and I've lost a lot of the little bumps that I had.
    Also a nice feel when applying it
  27. Haven't seen great results

    I am in my 30s and have hormonal acne and oily skin. I have noticed a reduction of oil but have not noticed an improvement to the reduction of actual spots. I love The Ordinary products and they are priced so well but I don't think I will be replacing this bottle once it has run out
  28. Great for during the day

    I have blemish prone and quite oily skin. I've been using this product for a couple of weeks in the morning, before applying SPF and makeup. I found that using this product ensures that I don't get a blemish during the day. It also doesn't affect the way that my makeup sits throughout the day. I'd definitely recommend trying this product if you have similar skin concerns
  29. My combination dry/oily/sensitive/breakout prone skin looks GREAT!

    Really impressed with this product.
    Firstly it's cheap. Secondly it works!
    My skin is difficult, everything irritates, everything makes it breakout and this product has worked wonders. My skin looks amazing , no breakouts, it's not oily , it's not dry. I have been using the ordinary's buffet +copper as well . I love the ordinary products and for the price it's definitely worth giving a go.
  30. Love it!

    Has really reduced the severity, size and redness of my breakouts. I use this in the morning under a moisturiser and sunscreen and find it very comfortable. The texture can be a little odd but working quickly and rubbing it into the skin it soon sinks in (just feels a little sticky for a short while). Definitely notice almost instant results - skin looks a lot less 'angry' and overall my complexion is a lot more even.
  31. Love it

    This product work within a week. I really only get hormonal pimples or after wax pimples, but since using this I rarely get any. So impressed!
  32. Not drying, pores look smaller.

    I've only been using this short term but so far it's done a great job. My pores look smaller on my nose, and it's gentle enough for dry/dehydrated skin. I've been using it daily and it hasn't dried out my skin or made my face tight like a lot of de-congesting products. It's a simple, no frills serum - clear and scentless, with a gel formula that sinks in quickly. I think I will be repurchasing when its used up - especially at such a great price!
  33. Lightweight serum for blemishes

    Highly recommend. Great for blemish prone skin and perfect for under make up.
  34. The way to clear skin

    I've got some acne due to hormonal imbalance and sometimes food and stress can cause breakouts. But as soon as I feel like my skin is breaking out, I just use this serum and my skin clears after 4 days. I use it as part of my night routine and it works every time. Life saver - highly recommended
  35. Brilliant on my Sensitive Skin

    I'm usually wary when it comes to products or brands that I have never heard of before or are new on the market. However, when it comes to this item, I can happily say that my impulse paid off. I have been using this for almost a month now, and I can see an improvement in my skin. My pores have decreased in size, and I have not suffered any irritation or dry/tightness to my face. I am definitely recommending this to anyone with sensitive skin and similar skin concerns.
  36. Instant difference

    I have combination skin and I noticed a difference in the first use. My skin looked brighter and my red patch on my chin was clearing. I first exfoliated my face with the skinstitut glycolic acid exfoliating scrub 14% followed by the Mario badescu enzyme cleansing gel before applying this product. Very happy with the results in regards to fresher looking skin and reduced redness
  37. Good quality

    I started using a few different products of The Ordinary at the same time as a friend swears by them. I have normal skin, haven’t really had problems with acne/pimples before. I use this in my morning routine and find it great so far, no effects. Goes on nice. Haven’t been using it too long, but happy so far. The ordinary products are great value and using a combination of ones I’ve notice a difference all together and my skin looks great.
  38. Great!

    Smooth and clear skin skin, need I say more. Didn’t think it would work this well.
  39. Amazingly priced given its effectiveness.

    Only been using this for a bit over a week but it's already aided considerably in reducing existing problem areas (hormonal). Nicotinamide is supposed to be good for hyperpigmentation, too, so I'm looking forward to any potential benefits in that regard.
  40. Love this so much!

    I tried this product because of all the hype surrounding the ordinary and I have to say it did live up to expectations! Love how smooth my skin became with use of this product!

    However, I found that it made my foundation separate on top.
  41. Good for use during pregnancy

    I’m pregnant and suffering from bad breakout all over my face. I can’t use my normal spot treatment cream as it’s harmful for the baby. I was told this product was safe to use so I’ve been applying at night for the past 3 weeks. It tingles when applied and does seem to dry the pimples out which is what I was going for. Not sure if it’s working to decrease the pimples in general, but it definitely helps them mature early once established.
  42. Clears breakouts

    I love this stuff. It's cheap and really helps in aiding the reduction of blemishes and acne scars. I don't really find it tightens my pores but I honestly don't care as it helps in other concerns. I would highly recommend this product for those just starting out with the brand, it's cheap and so worth the price!! I can't count how many times I've repurchased this
  43. Best product ever!

    This is a must have product for me!! It clears my skin and helps heal blemishes. Doesn't react with my sensitive skin wither which most products do. Feels so good on the skin and even better in the morning.
  44. Great product

    This is my second bottle! I find it helps to clear out breakouts whenever I use this. Such a great price too!!
  45. Great for my skin

    The niacinamide in this product is great for my acne prone skin. I've already gone through several bottles and don't mind replacing every 6 or so weeks as it's so cheap! Definitely recommend giving it a try.
  46. not Sure

    I bought this mainly for my neck and body. Occasionally I use it on my face. My neck is always a bit darker than my face, so I bought this hoping using it along with vitamin C serum will brighten up my neck skin tone.
    I have been using it daily for the past 3 weeks and didn’t see any difference. I will give it more time since 3 weeks is too short to judge a skincare product.
    I only gave it 3 stars because its texture. It’s really sticky and always leaves white marks. I tried exfoliate my skin before using it and use different lotions after it and nothing works. Won’t purchase again.
  47. Value for money

    Incredible value for money this is the brand Kim Kardashian swore by. Pricing is so accessible. Gives you a luxury feel, branding on point.
  48. Clear, even tone and matte skin

    I have fairly normal skin that can get a little oily across my T zone by afternoon. I also get the occasional break out around my jawline/chin area.

    My main concern is that my skin looks dull and uneven, I want to be able to go makeup free and not have people comment that I look tired or sick.. grrr!

    This product worked really well for me. I apply it in the morning after cleansing. I feel like it absorbs well and gives a matte finish. I have noticed after applying that my skin looks more even and my pores are smaller/less noticeable. I also haven't had a breakout since using it which is awesome!
  49. Liking it

    I use this after I apply my skinceuticles retexturising serum and I’m not sure whose doing what for my skin but things are looking good. Bit of an odd texture, when I rub between my fingers it sort of froths up and goes white but when I apply it to my skin it just makes me look bouncy and sort of glowy. No complaints what so ever and if I use both products after a dermal roll I wake up looking like I’ve been reborn. If your not dermal rolling you neeeeed to try it out. Get your hands on a .25mm or .50 if your a little more experienced and I promise when you make the time to roll yourself you’ll thank yourself the following morning!!
  50. My saviour

    I suffer from adult/hormonal acne. It's gotten really bad over the last few months and was seriously starting to affect my mental well being. I gave this a shot (Using AM and PM) along with The Ordinary Salicylic Acid for spot treatment (PM) and after 2 weeks my skin has almost completely cleared. I'm so happy I could cry.
  51. My skin loves it

    This calms down my skin noticeably. I generally use it in the AM before my moisturiser and my skin feels smooth and fresh after I put it on. No residue, but not drying. Love it.
  52. Excellent

    Love this brand and this serum is very effective
  53. Go for it!

    I use this serum twice a day for the last couple of months and really can notice the difference on my skin.
  54. Amazing!

    Of all the products from The Ordinary I’ve used this has made the most noticeable difference. I have dry/sensitive, rosacea prone skin - I also have congestion and hormonal pimples (yay).
    This has improved texture and clarity, I feel my redness is gong down and skin is clear. Highly recommend this product.
  55. amazing

    great product really does works
  56. Love the Ordinary products

    This product balances the oil production on my face - I have oily skin and have always had products trigger a lot of oil production on my face but this product minimises the oil production. This has as a result also minimised my pore size. Really happy with the results
  57. Nothing but Horrible

    Experienced no benefits from this product. Gave me a burning and stinging sensation on application. Developed lots of tiny bumps on my forehead, cheeks, and chin. Caused my skin to breakout more often than usual.
  58. WORKED!

    Absolutely love this product, makes my skin feel amazing & clear
  59. MUST HAVE!!

    I was reluctant to try the brand because of the price. Surely anything valued at $10 isn't that great. BUT HOW I WAS WRONG!! The best $10 I've ever spent for my skin. After three days of continued use, I noticed my skin and blemishes which always struggled to heal had started to fade.
  60. Worked for my oily skin!

    Only need a small amount soaks in great and works fine under makeup.

    Only been using for a week but I’ve found it keep my oily t-zone shine free for hours.

    No reaction or redness and a have sensitive skin on occasions.
  61. I've been using this for a month and am not sure that it's working

    I haven't noticed any dramatic changes using the Niacinamide. I've been trying to target some pigmentation on my forehead, but haven't noticed any changes. I do know that a lot of my friends love this product, so I guess it's worth trying to see if it's right for your skin.
  62. Lesson learned - read the description

    I bought this in an attempt to improve some occasional breakouts, but my experience was that it did nothing at all. Reading back over the description, I see it's ideal for oily and acne prone skin, while I have combination skin and just really hate breakouts! I will keep searching for something more appropriate for my skin.
  63. Must have for all skin types

    I love this serum from the ordinary. I have fair skin that’s prone to redness and has some freckling. I find that this product smooths out my skin and provides overnight relief from redness. It’s also a lifesaver for any acne, just dab on a small amount to reduce the severity overnight. Overall great product to have on hand!
  64. great for oily skin

    i love this product for oily skin, definitely my fav product from this brand
  65. Not the right product for my skin

    I found this product wasn't as effective for me in managing breakouts as the salicylic acid from THE
  66. SO GOOD

    I went to purchase a high end brand from Mecca to help with my large and clogged pores. This was the answer as I was hesitant at spending so much money.. my boyfriend now even uses it.
  67. Doesn't do much, but results may show after long time use

    This product makes my face a little itchy, and red in some areas. It also causes CC's sometimes. I was about to throw the whole product away because I didn't feel like I was doing any good to my skin until I noticed that of my sun spots have disappeared very slightly.
    I use this in the AM as I noticed that I'll be more prone to get CC's if I wear it in the PM.
  68. ok but not amazing

    I was really excited to try this product after reading all the great reviews. It didn't really seem to do anything for me, and I actually felt like I got small white bumps after using it.

    I have read since that that this should only be used in oily/blackhead prone areas of your face and not everywhere. Will try that.

  70. Cleared my hormonal breakouts

    This product is amazing! It has cleared my hormonal breakouts almost entirely. It feels lovely on my skin and sinks in quickly. I highly recommend this product and for the price you can't go wrong. I will definitely repurchase!
  71. Ride or Die

    This is a product that I have used for about 6 months, and intend to use long-term. White heads and deep, under-the-skin pimples are now incredibly rare, and I think the deep pores around my nose are much less visible. I love to use hydrating products, so this is key for making my skin less textured and acne-prone.
  72. Great Value! Amazing Product

    I have been using this daily for about 3 weeks now. I have noticed a huge difference, to the point where I have stopped wearing makeup. I have combination skin and it just works so well. The formula is easy to rub in, and feels amazing when I top it off with my daily moisturizer.
  73. Seems to be helping

    I purchased this product in conjunction with some other serums and have definitely noticed a change for the better in my skin. I learnt pretty quickly that it is best applied at night time for me (my skin is quite oily in places and this serum can exacerbate that temporarily).
    It wasn't the miracle cure for me that I see in a lot of reviews - but will probably replace the bottle once this one runs out (only about half way after 2 months worth of daily use)
  74. I've never found better, it's a ride or die skincare product for me.

    I order four bottles at a time now as it keeps selling out. I've just given a bottle to my dad to use on his skin as he always looks blotchy after shaving.

    It removes the redness and inflammation from my face in ways I had not anticipated, It calms my blemishes and I now use it as a spot treatment on the rest of my body.
  75. Holy grail!!

    This serum has helped my skin which is oily in the T-zone and the rest dry plus sensitive, remain smooth and acne less
    It has helped clear out my acne, whiteheads and has controlled sebum production on my nose to a good extent which in turn helped reduce blackheads a bit.
    It has also helped with some scars that acne had left behind on both my cheeks by making Them lighter, I've been using this product for about a year now and yes this product goes long way. U need just a tiny bit of it. It's in my go to products, in the morning routine.. On my 4th bottle now, I recommend this to everyone. Thanks the ordinary for such great products and budget friendly
  76. Great product

    Great product for scars, pores, pimples.
  77. Love

    Great cheap easy product that produces noticeably clearer skin
  78. Didnt notice a difference

    I used this consistently until i finished the bottle but didn't notice any difference while using or even when I stopped.
  79. it just works

    This is the kind of product that just sneaks up on you - use over time is key. As someone suffering regular/ constant breakouts well into her 30s, I truly believed that was just how it was going to be for me. I bought this on a whim some time ago (who can pass up that price?!) and have had countless bottles since. It has really improved the texture and condition of my skin, but more importantly breakouts are a very very rare occurrence. The confidence that has given me is priceless.
  80. Life changing

    I was so doubtful I would ever find a product to clear my skin but with The Ordinary I have. I ran out and while waiting for more I could tell a difference in my skin almost instantly
  81. Many bottles later and I still love it!

    I think I've finished over 4 bottles of this and while I was waiting for my new bottles to come in from AB, I broke out without this product! I've used this product for over a year and see a clear difference in how clear and smooth my skin looks and feels. I use this in the AM and PM and find that it is easy to layer after toner and before moisturiser and doesn't feel heavy under makeup.
  82. I use this daily

    Have found this product a great addition to my daily skin program
  83. Good for management of combination skin

    I have combination skin and apply this at bedtime after cleansing. It is great at reducing redness and inflammation and is generally perfect for me to manage my skin on a daily basis.

    I would suggest a higher strength spot treatment for pimples and blackheads as this is not the best remedy but great for maintenance and prevention.
  84. magic!

    feels great! had made my skin really nice and smooth!
  85. Amazing product I use every morning!

    I picked up this product with my first haul of The Ordinary products. I have combination skin and struggle with red spots and blemishes after breaking out ( sometimes for weeks and months). Using this product every morning has really helped settle my skin. Overall my blemishes are lighter and less visible. Would recommend as part of everyone’s morning routine!
  86. A must have for me

    I have enlarged pores and since using this they have definitely gone down. It feels nice going on and sinks in perfectly.
    I will always keep this in my routine.
  87. dried my skin out and also broke out in pimples

    I have read many good things about this niacinamide and was hoping it would do wonders for my skin but it made one side of my face break out for at least a week. Not sure if it was just drawing pimples out that were already there cause the other side was not affected. I did notice that just one overnight use extremely dried my face up even although I moisturized well so I would say it is best for oily skin as mine felt like a desert in the morning. There are plenty of fantastic reviews so I'm sure this product just wasn't the best for me.
  88. Great for oily skin

    I've never been able to control the oil or my breakouts until i started using this product. i read all the reviews and thought 'why not give it a shot!'.
    i use this every second day under my moisturiser and i've noticed it has also decreased inflammation and redness which im stoked about!
  89. MIRACLE PRODUCT!

    I was sceptical at first given this product was so cheap however.. it has been the saviour for my skin. I use both the Niacinamide & Salicylic Acid 2% Solution as my night routine and it has completely cleared my skin up. I haven't had skin this clear in years! Worth a try for how affordable it is.
  90. The perfect balance!

    I have fairly oily skin and the warmer weather has recently made this such a pain.
    I bought this hoping it would reduce the oil without making my skin dry and it seriously delivered! I’ve been using it morning and night and am so happy with the price/product size because it’s not a pain to continue buying when it works and doesn’t break the bank!
  91. Great Results - Much clearer skin!

    I've had issues with dull skin tone, bumpy texture, and dry skin. I also have a very mild case of rosacea along my cheeks. I started using the Niacinamide serum because my dermatologist said I needed to be using it daily but,I didn't really want to keep shelling out a lot of money for a serum I was using so frequently. I found The Ordinary and, because I had good results with their hyaluronic serum, I bought this one. I used this serum in the morning with a light moisturiser over the top and I'm really happy with the results. My skin remains soft and hydrated during the day, my skin tone is much more even and my skin looks "fresh". I don't even break out anymore, maybe around my period but even then it's one pimple that goes away within a day...sounds crazy but it's true. If I do have a pimple then this is gentle enough to go over the top without any stinging or irritation. I would happily recommend this product and I'll definitely keep buying it.
  92. 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
  93. 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.
  94. 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.
  95. 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.
  96. 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.
  97. 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
  98. Using for weeks

    I have been using this for weeks - not sure what the effects are supposed to be. I like the texture and it soaks in well on my face. Not greasy or oily at all.
  99. 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.
  100. 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!
