    My favorite serum!

    The Ordinary's Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum is to date my favorite serum. It costs less than 10$ CAD! That's less than most drugstore beauty, less than a specialty coffee for you and your BFF and your skin will look amazing for months! Yes, I love the product and its value.

    The serum aims to reduce the appearance of blemishes, and balance and brighten the skin. The longer I use this serum, the better results I see. My skin tone looks more even, I have less redness and fewer dry patches, blemish scarring from hormonal breakouts fade faster and better. The only thing I don't like is the dropper is a bit of a pain. I am definitely repurchasing this.

    Wait your skin get used to it

    The product caused some effects on my skin during the first week, but i read that its normal to happen. After the second week my skin started to be amazing an glowing not because of oil but it was looking very healthy. Its ok to use under makeup, It doesn’t change the durability.

    Great serum for acne!

    This serum in only 2 weeks calmed my acne and prevented new breakouts, even hormonal acne. I use it every night, and gives me glowing skin right away. It has also helped with texture, and has improved the feeling of my skin and the look of it! Not A TON of product in the bottle, but for the cheap price, IS SO WORTH IT!

    Time will tell

    I tend to use it with The Ordinary Marine Hyaluronics and alternate it with lactic acid so it is difficult to tell if the niacinamide is doing much. I think this may be a product that you need to use for a while before noticing results.

    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.
