Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is used to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion.

This effective high-strength formula can be applied to your entire face morning and evening before heavier creams.
What is it?
A serum made for any tiring and ongoing battle with acne and its myriad of side effects, completely oil-, alcohol- and silicone-free.

What’s in it?
↳ Niacinamide (10%): otherwise known as vitamin B3, this ingredient reduces blemishes and works at balancing your skin’s natural levels of sebum. B3 is also known for helping your skin with its texture, defences against external factors (such as pollutants and other skin irritants), and retaining your skin’s moisture.
↳ Zinc (1%): an anti-inflammatory, Zinc is known for its healing properties when it comes to burns, scars and marks. It combats against free radicals (unpaired electrons that are looking for a way to pair themselves up and consequently damage cells, DNA and proteins). As an added bonus, Zinc encourages collagen production, which reduces wrinkles and the signs of ageing.

What does it do?
This serum does its best work with redness, scarring and hyperpigmentation. It can be used in both the mornings and the evenings, and helps with maintaining correct oil levels on the sensitive skin of your face. Additionally, this serum can help with reducing the occurrence of breakouts themselves.



If topical Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid and/or Ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid) is part of your skin care routine, avoid using it at the same time as this formula (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and this formula in the AM). Otherwise, Niacinamide can affect integrity of the Vitamin C.

This is my holy grail for acne prevention. Nothing else has worked. I wish I could buy a bottle for every acne sufferer!

This product has done wonders for my skin. I started using this 2 months ago and i cannot believe how much more clear and smooth my skin looks. I use it regularly before sleep. I only get acne during that time of the month but other than that its all under control.

I really like the results from this serum. When I break out I use this morning and night and it definitely helps to get rid of breakouts. When I'm not actively breaking out I'll use it once a day to try and maintain my skin. The only thing I don't like about this is that it can sometimes pill when I follow it with other products like oils or moisturisers. To combat this I just need to wait 5-10 minutes to make sure it completely absorbs.

Really good serum if you are prone to breakouts and oily skin. I actually would recommend this for a teenager since they have blemish prone skin. The only downsides to this product is it has a tendency to pill and it is not recommended to use in the same routine as L-ascorbic acid. I get around that by using it at night and using my vitamin C in the morning. You can use the Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate in the same routine as this though. Doesn't cost much and is definitely worth a try if you have oily skin or breakouts.

I really love using this product! A couple months back I bought this alongside the Hyaluronic Acid, and together using them twice a day for the niacinamide and night times for hyaluronic acid, it has most definitely helped to reduce the amount of white heads I get. I struggled a lot with my acne, specifically whiteheads, blackheads, pores and texture and red skin. It's helped so much to calm down the whiteheads, and reduce quite a bit of the oil that develops through the day

This wasn’t that effective on my skin, but probably was in conjunction with the salicylic acid solution. On its own, the only benefit I saw were less blackheads, but they came back pretty quickly. I probably wouldn’t repurchase this, but I think that’s because my skin just didn’t welcome it as much as the other product from this brand

This is great for getting rid if unwanted textures and raised spots. I was on Benzac and it would dry my skin out so I stopped using it and all the acne came back so angrily! When I tried niacinamide even the cystic stuff went away. Just remember to moisturize after this and then in the morning because this stuff can be a bit drying. Also, don't apply it in the morning if you're going to be wearing makeup. Foundation and niacinamide don't mix well.
