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.

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 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 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 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 It’s super good I used it Two years for my neck and face , it really good for anti-wrinkles. I heard about that someone‘S skin is very sensitive with this product, but from beginning you can just try a little bit. And you will be surprised. Who can believe I am already 40 years old in this year LOL

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Definitely works. I used to have issues with shine on my face but not anymore. It took a while to find the right amount to use and to figure out how to use it. It can peel so make sure your face or hands are damp when using it. Also, if you have dry or oily/dry skin, use very little (I only use two drops) or it can dry you out. Love that it fades dark spots. My skin is more even than it has ever been. Highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy grail I have been using this for a couple of years and really notice the difference in my skin when I run out and have to take a break from using it. I love The Ordinary and this is my absolute favourite product they make! Keeps my skin bright and clear. It absorbs well and doesn't leave skin sticky. It also layers great over or under other serums and moisturizer.
