The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is indicated to help to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. A high 10% concentration of this vitamin is supported in the formula by zinc salt of pyrrolidone carboxylic acid to balance visible aspects of sebum activity.

Directions: Apply to entire face morning and evening before heavier creams.

Contraindications: If topical Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid and/or Ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid) is used as part of skincare, it should be applied at alternate times with this formula (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and this formula in the AM). Otherwise, Niacinamide can affect integrity of the Vitamin C.

Notes:
While Niacinamide and Zinc PCA help to reduce the look of blemishes and balance visible sebum activity, neither is a treatment for acne.

Ingredients:  Aqua (Water), Niacinamide, Pentylene Glycol, Zinc PCA, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Tamarindus Indica Seed Gum, Xanthan gum, Isoceteth-20, Ethoxydiglycol, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin.



Vegan, cruelty free, alcohol-free, oil-free, silicone-free, gluten-free, nut-free, pH 5.50-6.50

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works! I have been using this for over 2 months now and waited to write a review and can honestly say the results are great. My dark spots from acne are almost completely faded, I have barely had any breakouts since I started using this and I believe this has even made my complexion more even in color. Even included a selfie so you can see the results. Freshly showered, only applied my niacinamide and zinc as well as a moisturizer. Very happy to see my skin looking so good after many years of struggle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for Sensitive Skin I used this for months devotedly and left s positive review, but after not using it for weeks while I waited for a refill I realised that it really irritates my skin, so much that it's actually painful. Even after 6 months of using it devoutly diluted, my skin never built up tolerance. Unfortunately, I wasted a lot of money on stocking up on this (well, by The Ordinary standards...) before I learned. I am less positive about this brand than I used to be, since of the ten or so products I've tried from them, none of them have ended up working.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for troubled skin This serum has a gel-like consistency, absorbs quickly and helps to balance your skin, particularly if you are oily. My skin is often, dry and flakey at times, but also excessively oily and this serum has helped to brighten and calm my skin down enough to make it a worthwhile product. I've used an entire bottle already and am on my second. My tips for applying this serum are to use it sparingly as a second last step, pat it in rather then rub and follow up with a moisturizer to avoid pilling as that is truly the only downside of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps with adult acne! So I have struggled with adult acne since....well, I became an adult. Of course people were like 'drink more water, eat healthier' blah blah. Then a friend who is a dermatology nurse recommended facial oil with niacinamide and pointed me to this. IT HAS CHANGED MY FACE. I'm not joking. I used to even get cystic acne along my chin. I haven't change my habits much other than drinking less alcohol and I can see a dramatic difference, especially along my jaw line, in reduced pimpled, redness and irritation. Seriously I could go on for hours about this product. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helped dry out my quarantine stress acne I was having terrible breakouts during quarantine despite very rarely wearing make up, so I decided to try this serum. I have tried The Ordinary’s glycolic acid and was only “meh” about it, but this product was great. It dried my acne without irritating my dry patches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i really do believe this is helping me I use this on my face and under my chin and neck. My chin had a dark mark left over from a brown spot i tried to remove myself. I believe it was a mole and it had began to spread. I bought this knowing it was good for damaged skin barrier and I actually found out that it also helps to lighten and decrease dark spots. It helps prevent melanin transfer so its great for those with pigmentation problems. I'm impressed I like this company and I may try their other products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from magic serum Been using this for just over 3 months (that's how long the 30 mL bottle lasted for me using 2-3 drops every AM and PM) and I will probably continue using it forever. I have oily, acne prone skin and I found that the niacinamide + zinc serum has lightened my acne scars, reduced blemishes, and made my skin just more glowy and nice in general. AM routine is CeraVe foaming cleanser, this serum, and CeraVe daytime moisturizer with SPF; PM routine is CeraVe foaming cleanser, Ordinary squalane cleanser a few times a week for a double cleanse, this serum, and Ordinary NMF+HA. Extremely budget friendly as all the products are really affordable and last for a several months. I would recommend all these products, but I think the niacinamide+zinc serum specifically has had the most profound effect on overall skin appearance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing serum for acne prone skin I am on my second bottle of this serum and I love it. The low price does not indicate the quality of the product - not sure how The Ordinary keeps their prices so low but I am happy they do. I am prone to blemishes and since using this serum I can't remember having a pimple, it's actually amazing. I use it in the morning before applying moisturizer - you only need a small amount to cover your face. I keep an extra bottle on hand so that I never run out!
