No difference felt
27YO, combination w very oily t-zone, cystic acne prone.
Love love love itAbsolutely amazing, I’ve been using this for less than a week, and my skin is already so much clearer. I will definitely be getting this again
Amazing productI had high expectations prior to trying this product and they lived up to them. My skin is combo/oily while also being sensitive. My skin did not react badly to this product and I have noticed a reduction in overall oil.
Magic productThis product says it is formulated for oily and acne prone skin and I have dry skin that is prone to occasional breakouts and this product works wonders on my skin. It balances out the oils in my skin and leaves me with clear, healthy skin, definitely recommend this product!
Works!At the start i didnt notice much difference and notice my skin sensitivity getting worse.
However now my skin has never looked better, clear of scaring and acne free.
This is something you need to stick to and USE SUNSCREEN WITH!!!
Amazing !!Cannot recommend this enough. I had acne all through my teens and into early adulthood (I'm mid 20s now). Have tried SO many products (from harsh drying out products, to antibiotics, to contraception, to gentle washers) and nothing would get rid of my acne. This has been AMAZING. My skin has completely cleared up and the odd break out I get before my cycle is significantly less severe than before...Read More
Results were GreatIn the beginning i did start getting some purging. I kept using it and it made my texture skin quite better than before.
My new staple!I have an oily skin type with rosacea.
It has helped control my oil, minimize my pores and slowly help soften my skin texture. It has also helped with some of my rosacea inflammation.
It has also made my overall skin more healthy looking.
I heard great things and yes, it did live up to the hype! Can we talk about price point? So affordable! Why wouldnt you give it a go?
Small difference?Been using it on and off for a few months, especially when I get occasional acne. I think it makes a small difference in preventing acne but hard to tell. Haven't noticed any other skin feel/appearance changes..
Happy with this serum!!I think this is great quality for the price point, and I do feel like I got great results with this. However, after using other serums, I don't think this layers very well, and I can't tend to use with anything else.
The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%Love this product, has made my pores more even and works good for oily/combination skin ! Would recommend!!
Holy grail!I’ve been struggling with iso skin and a whole heap of tiny pimples all over my chin and forehead which I’d never experienced! After using this for a few weeks my skins improved so much, looks so much clearer and has helped minimised those pesky pimples. Love this!
It is amazingIt is an amazing product, the results do not show right away but it really does fade any acne scars, it doesn’t leave my skin feeling greesy or oily but it does leave it hydrated and smooth
Oily skin magicI have been using this for almost two years now and will never go back - it works both instantly and over three longer term, I’ve noticed my pores look more even and I don’t get as shiny as I used to. I use this mixed with a touch of hyaluronic acid at night and alternate between this and vitamin c of a morning - overall the long term use has really paid off and I will never not buy this again.
LOVEI have oily/combination skin and am prone to blackheads and breakouts. This is amazing! Tightens pores and absorbs into my skin so quickly.
niacinamideamazing for getting rid of excess oil, smoothing my skin and getting that glass skin effect. thrilled to have found this product
Holy GrailThis product is amazing! I have noticed a huge difference in my acne and scarring. Has made my skin so much clearer would definitely recommend.
Doing its job bit by bitI started using this about 3 months ago to help clear up a bout of adult acne (face and upper body) that has been plaguing me since I turned 40 (I'm now 45). Retinols (prescription and OTC) didnt work and B.P is too drying, and AHA's don't do a thing.
So I tried using this serum every 2nd night with the Vit C 23% serum, also by T.O on the alternate night (Never together - which is a no-no a...Read More
Noticeably different skin in 1 use.Noticed a difference in the appearance of my skin in just 1 use, my skin looked more even and less splotchy and red from acne. After a few uses, my skin texture seems to have improved. I can’t wait to see what my skin will look like after continued use.
Love the glow!Although this hasn't helped with my acne problem much, it gives this glow to my skin that I love. Would repurchase!
Skin improvementUsed for the last four months as part of a regimen recommended by Deciem. Used in combination with Buffet and Caffeine, skin complexion is improved, but I'm not sure if it has really reduced my oil issues/shine.
A Girl's BestfriendThis is such a handy little product to add to your routine. I am a skincare newbie, and this was one of the initial products I had invested in and am so glad I did. Feels so light on the skin and produces awesome results. My skin hasn't looked this good, like ever. I'm still kind of shocked it was even possible for my skin to look like this. If the price tag isn't enough for you to commit just ye...Read More
Great for the price!I have to admit, I am using a number of different products at once. My daytime regime is cleanse, niacinamide solution, followed by 'The Buffet' then topped with my moisturizer with 50 SPF. So, I find it hard to work out what product is exactly doing what.
Having said that, since purchasing the niacinamide solution, I've noticed the spots around my chin where I get hormonal acne ha...Read More
Best product everI tried this product a long time ago and haven’t stopped using it since. This does wonders for your skin! Especially for any discolouration or dark spots, was super great for my acne scars! Highly recommend
10/10!Love this product, the consistency is really nice, is quickly absorbed and doesn’t feel sticky afterwards. A really good price too. Helped my acne scares fade.
THE BESTThis changed my skin a lot. It gives my skin this beautiful glow and has made my skin better. Its a little step in my skincare routine.
clear skinalready seeing a difference in my skin after a week of use! very impressed and will become a staple in my skincare routine going forward
Perfect addition to morning routine!I added this to my morning skincare regime in an effort to minimise oiliness throughput the day. So far this product has been great! It doesn’t control all of my oil but it definitely minimises the sheen and it’s been great for congestion and textural issues too. Will certainly be sticking with this one!
amazingThis product helped so much with my acne. I usually get small pimples quite regularly but after using this my skin can cleared up and my pores have become less visible too.
Not sureI'm not really sure what this product should do for me. It feels nice on the skin but I haven't seen the difference others speak about. I have dry and sensitive skin and it can sometimes hurt so I think it may just not be the thing for me
Freaking INCREDIBLE for acne + oily skinThis stuff CHANGED my skin. Like, I still can barely understand it. I always had super oily skin - UNTIL I started using this. Now I have very 'normal' skin - which is... it's just SO weird to me! My acne pretty much disappeared using this (I'd had pretty bad cystic acne breakouts on/off since my mid 20s - this and the glycolic acid toner from The Ordinary finally ended them). I was so shocked at ...Read More
Best Serum!This is the best Niacinamide serum you can get! It minimised all my pores and made my skin so much smoother!
I love this product!Feels nice on the skin and I’ve noticed a difference with how it works with my redness and any scars! Love!
New favourite productThis product visibly reduces the appearance of large pores! It's really lightweight so easy to use under moisturizers and even makeup if using in the morning. It's also gentle enough to use in the morning and night. Definitely love this product, lives up to expectations, will be repurchasing. (PS. AMAZING for the price)
In love!!I SWEAR by this serum, it’s my absolute favourite! Been using it for only 1 month but I’m in love, I had a problem with scarring and dark spots but with this serum it’s improved so much!
Goodbye scars!I was a skeptic BUT have been using this for almost three months with The Ordinary Squalane as a moisturizer and some of my long term scars have filled out. Was initially using just to target those areas, overall has smoothed my skin texture completely!
Absolute necessity!When I first purchased Niacinamide my very sensitive skin reacted and I didn’t try it again for months. I gradually added a small amount to my regime 1-2 evenings a week. My skin can now tolerate it and the morning after my skin is so smooth, soft and has reduced fine lines. Any irritation or blemish is gone. Especially good after plucking my eyebrows. My fiancé has even started using it. I reorde...Read More
Soft skin!I’ve been using this for about a month now and i’ve noticed a noticeable difference with my acne scarring and pigmentation on my face. I pair this with the lactic acid 5% and the hylauronic acid and it’s been doing wonders
Brighten my dull skinBeen using this product for about 6 months now. It has helped brighten my skin, improved my complexion, and improved the dryness. It does sting a little when you first put it on but could be because I have sensitive skin.
Love this!Love this product, and it is such a bargain! I have definitely noticed my red blemishes from my acne prone pale skin have decreased since using this, would definitely recommend!
Oily Skin SaverThis product is a must for oily skin. I've struggled with oily skin across my t zone for a long time and this product has helped control oil and blemishes really well. It also doesn't feel drying on the skin.
Favourite SerumThis works wonders and with consistent use, it keeps your pores very clean from blackheads. It doesn't irritate my sensitive cheek area. It does go on a little soapy which I find strange but it skins in quickly so I don't have a problem with it.
ImpressedI needed to try serums that were more affordable and followed the instructions on Adore Beauty's website to pick The Ordinary products to suit my skin type (oily and acne prone). I am so so happy to say that this is as good as the expensive products I used before. A little goes a long way, it absorbs beautifully, my skin loves it and looks awesome.
Perfect spot treatmentI am prone to the odd blemish and I find when used as a spot treatment this stuff really helps to reduce the redness and life span of a pimple, without any nasty dryness. Holy grail for sure!
O blessed elixirI’ve been using this twice daily since I first ordered/ adored it from this site in late 2019. I’ve always had oily tzone, combination skin and I’m in my late 20s now. Went through one tiny bottle with fairly immediate results, I.e. reduced oil, no breakouts, generally smoothed skin. I love it! Sometimes I have a lil break from it just so I can experience that first glow that seems to come with it...Read More
Bye SpotsI was very surprised by this. I've been using this for over a month and love it. I use it daily in the evening. I have oily skin, spots & uneven skin. This has made such a difference. I don't have as many breakouts and I don't have as much congestion. It's really made a difference to my skin and now has become a staple.
Perfect Addition to Any Skincare RoutineThis is a great start to introducing niacinamide into your routine. I have repeatedly purchased this product and you can see the results. However, if you're willing to pay the price there are better niacinamide products such as ASAP's Super B Complex that deliver these results and more.
Great for oil control!This is the only product that has ever visibly controlled my oily skin! Highly recommended for anyone with super oily skin!
Perfect for oily skinThis product has definitely helped my oily skin and reduced my breakouts. I only use a tiny amount on my T zone in the morning and have seen huge improvements
A great addition to a routineI think this product is a great first product to use in your routine. it controls excess oils and creates a clean slate for the rest of your products, would recommend!
Very pleased - will definitely keep using!I had heard a lot about this product, so I thought that I would give it a try as I wanted to try something that would reduce the frequency of my breakouts and even out my skin tone without the hefty price tag and that wouldn't hurt my sensitive skin.
This was definitely a winner! I was a bit worried before purchasing that the acid would be abrasive and would hurt my skin due to the h...Read More
Obsessed!this is hands down the best product I've ever used. I've struggled with breakouts for years. Started using this in my routine and I don't get pimples anymore. When one pops up this kills it overnight
Lovely light serumThis is a lovely light serum. It dries quickly and my breakouts have reduced around my chin area.
Love love loveMy skin is quite sensitive and I've never liked using any harsh products. Since I've been using this product, I have noticed less blemishes and my overall skin looks much clearer and smooth. Would definitely recommend to anyone with similar skin concerns!
Great valueI've been using this serum at night along with other the Ordinary products in the morning. I think it has helped calm my skin, reduce redness and blemishes. It has a slightly tacky feeling after application, not quite as smooth as other serums I have tried. But not oily, I still follow with moisturiser.
Beginner’s Holy GrailI’m 26 with combination skin, prone to blackheads and the occasional breakout. I use this morning and night, and noticed an improvement in the texture of my skin after just a couple of days. I think the appearance of my pores has also improved, so I bought a second bottle very quickly! My only slight negative is the tackiness on my face when I use oil based products to hydrate afterwards.
Blemish free! Check me!I've had my eye on The Ordinary for a while - sleek packaging, GREAT price point - but I was intimidated because the fancy-pants science-y names meant I didn't really know what to get to or where to start, let alone how to effectively use the products. Also have sensitive skin and have spent lots of $$$ on products only to find I reacted or didn't get the results I wanted. I really didn't want tha...Read More
Works well but tackyI'm really enjoying this product as I have felt my skin becoming a lot smoother over time. However, the formula is a little sticky on the skin so I tend to use as little as possible to prevent my face from getting too sticky, particularly if I'm using the product in the morning and am planning to wear it all day.
I can't believe I hadn't heard of this sooner!I am incredibly pale, transparently pale. So when I get blemishes or redness they are so bright and so obvious. Niacinimide really helps even out my skin tone and minimizes the suffering of breakouts. Its a really cool product!
Hoping for a miracleIve used this for a month so still need to give it time to show, but it seems like I have had less breakouts and scars are slowly/minutely fading. Slightly thicker consistency, like a serum. I love how this feels like it wont absorb onto your skin, but it absorbs so well!
A GAME CHANGEROMG WHERE DO I START! I've only been using this product for 2 weeks after seeing it everywhere, and I have noticed such a difference. I don't break out as much and my skin tone has evened out noticeably and has a healthy glow that it doesn't usually have. This past week alone I have received a lot of compliments on my skin and my mum's also starting using it after seeing the effect it had on my sk...Read More
Smooth, Glowing & Radiant SkinI have oily skin and this product has been able to control my oil production immensely, whilst still giving me smooth, radiant, and glowing skin! This is my number #1 skincare product, I use it day at night after cleansing and toning, and before moisturizing and sunscreen. I saw a difference from the first use.
So goodI have ance prone skin and this has helped so much, I use morning and night and i officially have no break outs. I do find it really drying so make sure you use a moisturiser. I use this the the La Posay moisturiser for ance skin and it works wonders !
AMAZING!!!!!This is the best, so far its working and i can see my blemishes are becoming lighter and more flat. also my skin tone is becoming more even out. i cant wait to purchase it again and see more results.
They should sell this in bulkThis is my holy grail product. It works so so well. I have 0 complaints. My skin is clear and blemish free thanks to this product. I couldn't recommend it enough.
My skin feels amazing!!This product makes my skin feel and look amazing! I have used this for about 2 months now, and it targets my breakouts and has stopped many future ones straight away. I love to incorporate this product into my everyday skincare routine.
Holy Grail!Amazing! This leaves my sensitive skin feeling so soft and nourished, Love it!
LOVE THIS PRODUCTThis product has made my skin so glowy! Usually, products like these tend to dry out my skin, but after implementing this into my skincare routine, my skin has been radiant!
SO. AMAZING.I got this product two weeks ago - and WOW. My skin improved overnight, pimple gone down, and less red. Can definitely say it helped! Such a good product and a great price too. Get it!
Absolutely love itMy first product from TO Didn’t disappoint me. It is so good!!!! Have been using it for 2 weeks, slightly reduce my pores (i’ll keep using it to see more result) and tbh I only use this beneath my spf, they give me a very dewy look which I love. It absorbs super quick and feel light on the skin
Great value although a little stickyThis is a great product, helps with my pimples and my skin looks brighter. I find I get a bit of pilling though and it is a bit sticky.
AmazingI have been using this product for a few weeks and I am pleasantly surprised by the results. definitely will buy again.
Some sort of magicI've been using this product for around 2 or 3 months, every morning and evening, very lightly, only on acne breakout areas (hormonal - chin, cheekbones). This product has drastically reduced the amount of pimples I get, shortened their lifespan, and reduced redness. It's actually incredible! I have quite sensitive skin and haven't had any reactions from this product. I really recommend this for a...Read More
Easily a Top 3 favourite profucts.I've been researching this product for a while and I heard amazing praise and reviews so I decided to buy it. First time using it I really didn't like the way it felt on my skin, it was sticky and I thought that it's not going to work. However, I still decided to give it a try and I LOVED it. After using this product for two months my skin looks so much better, my pigmentation and red spots are GO...Read More
great valueHaving only used this product for 5 days I can't claim that its changed my skin a huge amount yet, as its more of a long term investment for me (I have relatively normal skin with no acne, just trying to kickstart age prevention). Immediate results have been a noticeably smoother complexion while on my period and any spots that came up healed in half the time
perfectI have very oily skin and this helps with oil control and also helps with pigmentation
Very niceIt feels good on the skin and is very soothing for the skin it does make it feel slightly tacky though
Changed my skin completelyI am giving this review after using the product for over 3 months and this product has changed my skin so much for good, I have acne prone skin and get hormonal acne around my jawline. Gotta be patient with this bad boy as it doesn’t work in a week. Atleast give it 4-6 weeks. Absolutely favourite product from the ordinary
Holy Grail!This is definitely a product that you need to be patient with. I didn't know how much of a difference it had made until I looked back at photos from months prior. I've always struggled with sebaceous filaments and enlarged pores and this has helped a lot. I use it after cleansing and chemical exfoliant, but before moisturiser. The price is amazing too!
AmazingI don’t usually leave reviews on products but this one is an absolute game changer. I’ve always struggled with textured skin. Incorporating this product into my night time skin routine showed such amazing results over time. My skin is significantly smoother now and not as congested as before. The formula looks quite thick but is also easily spreadable. Will be a holy grail product from now on. Lov...Read More
Amazing !!Great product that provides an effective percentage of niacinamide at a fantastic price. This serum helps heal acne and lighten hyperpigmentation, however it can be a little sticky.
My favourite product!I was looking for something to reduce redness so that I could get away with leaving the house without make-up - I was not disappointed! After about a month of daily use, I've seen a drastic improvement in the last few days. I am so impressed by the feel of the product and the effect it has had on my skin. I choose to pair it with a bit of the 100% cold-pressed Moroccan Argan oil, and my skin is lo...Read More
First time userI have just recently added this product to my routine after watching their YouTube video and doing further research. I can’t believe the price value of this product and when applied I can feel it working on any small spots that might have popped up from wear makeup. I have oily skin however not acne prone just the small spots here and there and before using I had some troublesome sore spots and no...Read More
Gentle and leaves skin feeling smoothI'm really enjoying this product! I've heard multiple good reviews about niacinamide and wanted to incorporate this into my routine. The product is a little thicker and has a "particular" scent (nothing crazy, just not my personal fave) but I have found that within the first 2 weeks my skin is feeling incredibly smooth and my oiliness has definitely eased up.
Not drying, nice feel..I liked this product and would probably keep purchasing it. It is hard to tell if it is making a huge difference, but I would say there is some improvement for sure. I like the feel of it too, not too sticky and not too drying. Pretty great for the price.
Great Serum!Love this serum! I use this everyday and have definitely seen a change in my skin. Less breakouts and less blackheads! I have quite dry skin and I find this product soaks in really well and leaves my skin feeling hydrated. Will definitely be buying the supersize next time.
A keeper!Have been using this for about four weeks now and it's been great for balancing my oiliness and controlling any break outs that I have. Skin looks brighter and clearer. Just ordered my second bottle!
My skin's BFFThe Ordinary's Niacinamide was my first step up from supermarket skin care in 2018, and two years later it's still a must in my routine. My acne-prone dry skin is generally calmer and less inflamed since using it. I'll never go without it again.
Great for oily skinsThis product has worked wonderful on my problematic skin [oily, imperfections, scarring] Even if i have seen only a minor difference, I know its a lot as my skin is usually indifferent to products I use.
I will buy one more bottle and see any other improvements.
Will never stop using!I absolutely love this product! I was expecting some oil control and clearing of my pores and this product definitely delivered, I have far fewer breakouts, and can see how clear my pores are especially the ones on my cheeks and forehead.
Amazing !!This product is amazing. it is cheap and affordable and it works so well. i have only been using it for 3 days and i can already see a difference. The only thing is that it is a bit sticky when you apply it but it sinks in pretty quick so i don't mind. I cannot wait to purchase more of the ordinary products in the near future. I highly recommend this. it also leaves your skin brightened and smooth...Read More
Good but pilesI think it works, my skin looks better in terms of less blemishes and smaller pores - but I find that it tends to pill (I just 1 or 2 drops) when I apply my sunscreen afterwards, even when I wait for > 30 min in between. Could be my sunscreen but I don't have this problem with most of the other TO products that I use (ie Buffet, pycnogenol, Marine hyaluronics).
Great for a break out!I really like product! Its great for when I can feel a breakout coming or already have a pimple to treat and it treats it fast. I don't use it everyday because I would go through far too much product but definitely when I get hormonal acne or stress acne its fantastic!
Sensitive skinWhen I first started using this product it made my skin feel itchy and tingly so I stopped using it. After some research I tried it again but using half the amount I was before. Since then, I’ve had no reaction and it feels like nothing on my skin.
Great on my oily/combo skinI often get oily spots during the day but this helps regulate any extra oil and my skin feels lovely and firm after applying. Big fan <3
LOVE itThis is literally my all time favourite skin product, if I have any tiny spots/pimples I can literally use this 2x a day for 3 days and they're basically gone, it's like magic. Helps reduce bigger pimples and helps acne but I use mainly for those smaller bumps that you can get on your forehead. It's a nice consistency (quite watery but slightly thicker), and comes in the ordinary dropper glass bot...Read More
MUST HAVEThis is an incredible product for acne, if you can only purchase one product to help, purchase this one! the Niacinamide is not drying at all to the skin, it leaves a smooth texture perfect for applying makeup on top. it has done wonders for my skin!
A must have product for meAfter hearing mixed reviews about this product, I was skeptical about adding this to my skin regime. However, I am pleased with the result and has been a must needed ingredient for my every day care.
Amazing stuff!I bought this product awhile back and I absolutely love it. The packaging is easy to use and it looks great! My skin is dry in some areas but oily in my T-zones and I found my skin to look and feel much smoother and less oily. My breakouts have lessened too. I've also put it on some pigmentation on my body just to see further effects and the pigmentation faded fairly quickly. I'll be buying the Su...Read More
Beautiful and effectiveThis is absolutely amazing. It was in my first order with adore beauty, and it arrived within days of my purchase, even with the corona virus restrictions. I even got a TimTam in my package! The product itself is beautiful and high quality. It cleared up under-the-skin redness and bumps, something I have struggled with for years. Teen acne is a pain, and this was definitely effective in helping cl...Read More
Really liking so far!I've used this for a couple of weeks day and night, and so far in combination with The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 and it has worked wonders at brightening and smoothing my skin, and helping slightly with the scarring on my chin from prior. Slow progress, but I see it!
If you're looking to slowly change up your skincare routine then I really recommend this and The Ordinary Hyaluronic Ac...Read More
