    Cured my acne!

    I bought this after reading reviews in Sephora and watching YouTube reviews. I was skeptical as I've tried Salicylic avid and Benzoyl peroxide with nothing but very irritated zits and a butt load of dry skin. After only a few weeks of using a couple of drops before bed and in the morning, I was shocked. My zits just ... Vanished. If I did get a flare up, I would massage some over the area and by the next day it would be AT LEAST significantly reduced in size and inflammation. I just ordered the 60ml bottle to stock up as I'm getting low. Ive never recommended anything skincare as highly as this! It's my holy grail for sure.

    This is my holy grail!!

    I purchased this product over a year and a half ago and continue to do so until day. It dramatically changed my skin and got rid of all the acne and bumps on my face. My skin is now smooth and clear, I loveeee this serum!

    I swear by this!! No more acne scars!!

    Wow.For many years I had terrible acne scarring on the sides of my cheeks by my hair, I always tried to hide it with makeup or leaving my hair down, but my friend introduced me to The Ordinary and I have not stopped buying from them since. For the price, it's amazing and works. I apply it twice a day after cleansing my face and spraying the Hylamide pore flush. I was quite impatient at the beginning and thought it did not work after a week, but I started seeing improvements towards the 2.5 week mark. I have been buying it for a year now and this is my second or third bottle.

    This stuff changed my life

    Before this I broke out constantly and had the oiliest skin ever. After a month of using it I only breakout during my period and only have oil if I sweat. Other than that my skin is super clear and soft. I even think it tightened my skin and made it brighter.

    A must have

    I love this product! I have combination skin and for the longest time would have big cystic acne flare-ups or collections of pimples around my chin and forehead. Since I started using this I haven't had a single "bad" pimple in a loooooong. Sure maybe some small blemishes here and there but I have a sweet tooth to blame for that. Along with helping my acne, my pores are much smaller than they used to be.

    I use 3 drops day and night before other heavier serums or creams. It is water-based so it spreads really easily and is light on the skin (I use a heavier anti-wrinkle serum in the morning over top for more hydration but you may not need that). The only negatives you'll need to watch out for is...
    1) let it dry fully - it will feel a bit tacky until it has completely dried but if you try to rub in a moisturizer on too soon after application it feels as if the product balls up and lifts.
    2) It says on the company website NOT to use it with vitamin C. I've never done it but I think it makes the vitamin C ineffective in some way. I use a vitamin C serum when I feel like my skin tone needs evening out in place of the niacinamide at night.

    Also, the price for this is crazy good for a product I religiously use now.

    Amazing!!

    My teenage daughter is prone to acne. We have tried many things this has worked the best. Non drying,slight sting but goes away immediately . No residue or tackey feeling. A small amount goes a very long way. The price is perfect compared to the other name brand acne treatments.

    Finally Optimistic about Acne relief!

    I had just spent almost $200 on a serum and it lasted me less than a month as I was instructed to use it twice a day and as a spot treatment. I had heard a lot of buzz about the Ordinary and you cannot beat the price point, so I thought, why not?

    I have been using it for under a month and I have not had any new breakouts and it has made my existing breakout look less inflamed and the pimples are fading and not as raised.

    On the fence? Give it a shot! Great return policy too, so you have nothing to lose!

    Nice

    Honestly, I think this could be a lot better. When I spread it on my skin it felt a bit heavy and turned white and foaming a bit. It took a long time to dry as well and kinda felt tacky and tight. But I think it works I might just need to wait a bit.

    Please buy this!

    I have been using The Ordinary's Niacinamide + Zinc since March 2019 (Currently writing this in Feb 2020). I am an Indian gal with the classic pigmentation issues of a person of colour. This product in combination with The Ordinary's Alpha Arbutin, has healed and reduced my discoloration and my acne scars! My skin literally glows.

    I have combination dry skin and my skin colour is Mac NC 44. I also have eczema on my face and use Niacinamide when I do not have a flare up. It is very moisturizing and makes my skin glow from within.
