The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

 

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a bestselling serum from the skincare experts at The Ordinary. Developed to help clear congested complexions and minimise the appearance and severity of blemishes, Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a must-have for oily and acne-prone skin.

 

This high-performance treatment, which is enriched with vitamins and minerals, can help to transform the texture of uneven skin. The serum also helps other treatments to work more effectively for a clearer and less-congested complexion.

 

 

  • Key benefits of The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
  • High-strength serum for skincare congestion
  • Can be used as part of an anti-acne skincare routine
  • Helps to balance sebum levels
  • Oil-free and non-comedogenic formulation
  • 30ml

 

How does The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% work?

Niacinamide, otherwise known as Vitamin B3, and Zinc are naturally occurring substances in the body. These ingredients are useful in a skincare routine to decongest skin and balance sebum levels. The combination of these two potent ingredients helps to battle blemishes by reducing bacteria on the skin, regulating oil production, and minimising the appearance of pores.

 

Niacinamide improves the skin’s moisture-retention abilities whilst boosting the skin’s natural defense system. Zinc repairs skin damaged by acne and congestion.

 

The high concentrations of both Niacinamide and Zinc in this powerful serum from The Ordinary help to quickly clear up complexions and calm any breakouts.

 

How to use The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a powerful water-based serum that should be introduced carefully into a skincare routine. It should be used only once daily, morning or night, and applied before moisturiser and oil treatments.

 

If you are also using a Vitamin-C-based serum, the Niacinamide and Zinc serum should be applied at the opposite time of day. So if you use vitamin C in the morning, use Niacinamide and Zinc in the evening, as the two can interact negatively with each other.

 

Who is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% suitable for?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is best for those with oily and acne-prone skin. This healing serum can help reduce the severity and frequency of breakouts whilst balancing oil levels.

 

What is the difference between The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and a retinol or salicylic acid treatment for treating acne?

Although The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% contains a combination of powerful ingredients, it can help clear congested skin more gently than both retinol and salicylic acid can. Those with sensitive skin should be cautious when applying retinol and salicylic acid, as they can cause irritation and sensitivity. The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% does not come with these same potential side effects.

 

Retinol and salicylic acid work as peels on the skin, removing a layer of damaged and acne-prone skin cells to reveal a fresher and clearer complexion below. These two ingredients should be used sparingly and introduced into a skincare routine slowly. The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% does not work in the same way, as it simply decongests skin and prevents future breakouts.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for acne?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is an excellent treatment product for clearing up acne, as the serum helps to reduce the severity and frequency of breakouts by banishing blemish-forming bacteria. Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% also helps to balance sebum production and minimise enlarged pores. All of these actions can dramatically improve the appearance of acne-prone skin.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for scarring and pigmentation?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% can assist in reducing the appearance and severity of scarring and pigmentation. To help with scarring and pigmentation, Niacinamide is best used in a skincare routine alongside vitamin C and retinol.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for rosacea?

Rosacea most commonly affects dry and dehydrated skin, so this serum is not recommended as a rosacea treatment. However, if you have an oily or congested complexion that is prone to rosacea, this product can be used to help balance sebum levels.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% comedogenic?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% has been developed to help clear congested skin and is non-comedogenic. It is also oil-free, vegan, and cruelty-free.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for wrinkles?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% has not been designed to improve ageing skin or wrinkles.

Cleared my hormonal breakouts
This product is amazing! It has cleared my hormonal breakouts almost entirely. It feels lovely on my skin and sinks in quickly. I highly recommend this product and for the price you can't go wrong. I will definitely repurchase!

Most Helpful Criticism

Doesn't do much, but results may show after long time use
This product makes my face a little itchy, and red in some areas. It also causes CC's sometimes. I was about to throw the whole product away because I didn't feel like I was doing any good to my skin until I noticed that of my sun spots have disappeared very slightly.
I use this in the AM as I noticed that I'll be more prone to get CC's if I wear it in the PM.

  2. ok but not amazing

    I was really excited to try this product after reading all the great reviews. It didn't really seem to do anything for me, and I actually felt like I got small white bumps after using it.

    I have read since that that this should only be used in oily/blackhead prone areas of your face and not everywhere. Will try that.

  5. Ride or Die

    This is a product that I have used for about 6 months, and intend to use long-term. White heads and deep, under-the-skin pimples are now incredibly rare, and I think the deep pores around my nose are much less visible. I love to use hydrating products, so this is key for making my skin less textured and acne-prone.
  6. Great Value! Amazing Product

    I have been using this daily for about 3 weeks now. I have noticed a huge difference, to the point where I have stopped wearing makeup. I have combination skin and it just works so well. The formula is easy to rub in, and feels amazing when I top it off with my daily moisturizer.
  7. Seems to be helping

    I purchased this product in conjunction with some other serums and have definitely noticed a change for the better in my skin. I learnt pretty quickly that it is best applied at night time for me (my skin is quite oily in places and this serum can exacerbate that temporarily).
    It wasn't the miracle cure for me that I see in a lot of reviews - but will probably replace the bottle once this one runs out (only about half way after 2 months worth of daily use)
  8. I've never found better, it's a ride or die skincare product for me.

    I order four bottles at a time now as it keeps selling out. I've just given a bottle to my dad to use on his skin as he always looks blotchy after shaving.

    It removes the redness and inflammation from my face in ways I had not anticipated, It calms my blemishes and I now use it as a spot treatment on the rest of my body.
  9. Holy grail!!

    This serum has helped my skin which is oily in the T-zone and the rest dry plus sensitive, remain smooth and acne less
    It has helped clear out my acne, whiteheads and has controlled sebum production on my nose to a good extent which in turn helped reduce blackheads a bit.
    It has also helped with some scars that acne had left behind on both my cheeks by making Them lighter, I've been using this product for about a year now and yes this product goes long way. U need just a tiny bit of it. It's in my go to products, in the morning routine.. On my 4th bottle now, I recommend this to everyone. Thanks the ordinary for such great products and budget friendly
  10. Great product

    Great product for scars, pores, pimples.
  11. Love

    Great cheap easy product that produces noticeably clearer skin
  12. Didnt notice a difference

    I used this consistently until i finished the bottle but didn't notice any difference while using or even when I stopped.
  13. it just works

    This is the kind of product that just sneaks up on you - use over time is key. As someone suffering regular/ constant breakouts well into her 30s, I truly believed that was just how it was going to be for me. I bought this on a whim some time ago (who can pass up that price?!) and have had countless bottles since. It has really improved the texture and condition of my skin, but more importantly breakouts are a very very rare occurrence. The confidence that has given me is priceless.
  14. Life changing

    I was so doubtful I would ever find a product to clear my skin but with The Ordinary I have. I ran out and while waiting for more I could tell a difference in my skin almost instantly
  15. Many bottles later and I still love it!

    I think I've finished over 4 bottles of this and while I was waiting for my new bottles to come in from AB, I broke out without this product! I've used this product for over a year and see a clear difference in how clear and smooth my skin looks and feels. I use this in the AM and PM and find that it is easy to layer after toner and before moisturiser and doesn't feel heavy under makeup.
  16. I use this daily

    Have found this product a great addition to my daily skin program
  17. Good for management of combination skin

    I have combination skin and apply this at bedtime after cleansing. It is great at reducing redness and inflammation and is generally perfect for me to manage my skin on a daily basis.

    I would suggest a higher strength spot treatment for pimples and blackheads as this is not the best remedy but great for maintenance and prevention.
  18. magic!

    feels great! had made my skin really nice and smooth!
  19. Amazing product I use every morning!

    I picked up this product with my first haul of The Ordinary products. I have combination skin and struggle with red spots and blemishes after breaking out ( sometimes for weeks and months). Using this product every morning has really helped settle my skin. Overall my blemishes are lighter and less visible. Would recommend as part of everyone’s morning routine!
  20. A must have for me

    I have enlarged pores and since using this they have definitely gone down. It feels nice going on and sinks in perfectly.
    I will always keep this in my routine.
  21. dried my skin out and also broke out in pimples

    I have read many good things about this niacinamide and was hoping it would do wonders for my skin but it made one side of my face break out for at least a week. Not sure if it was just drawing pimples out that were already there cause the other side was not affected. I did notice that just one overnight use extremely dried my face up even although I moisturized well so I would say it is best for oily skin as mine felt like a desert in the morning. There are plenty of fantastic reviews so I'm sure this product just wasn't the best for me.
  22. Great for oily skin

    I've never been able to control the oil or my breakouts until i started using this product. i read all the reviews and thought 'why not give it a shot!'.
    i use this every second day under my moisturiser and i've noticed it has also decreased inflammation and redness which im stoked about!
  23. MIRACLE PRODUCT!

    I was sceptical at first given this product was so cheap however.. it has been the saviour for my skin. I use both the Niacinamide & Salicylic Acid 2% Solution as my night routine and it has completely cleared my skin up. I haven't had skin this clear in years! Worth a try for how affordable it is.
  24. The perfect balance!

    I have fairly oily skin and the warmer weather has recently made this such a pain.
    I bought this hoping it would reduce the oil without making my skin dry and it seriously delivered! I’ve been using it morning and night and am so happy with the price/product size because it’s not a pain to continue buying when it works and doesn’t break the bank!
  25. Great Results - Much clearer skin!

    I've had issues with dull skin tone, bumpy texture, and dry skin. I also have a very mild case of rosacea along my cheeks. I started using the Niacinamide serum because my dermatologist said I needed to be using it daily but,I didn't really want to keep shelling out a lot of money for a serum I was using so frequently. I found The Ordinary and, because I had good results with their hyaluronic serum, I bought this one. I used this serum in the morning with a light moisturiser over the top and I'm really happy with the results. My skin remains soft and hydrated during the day, my skin tone is much more even and my skin looks "fresh". I don't even break out anymore, maybe around my period but even then it's one pimple that goes away within a day...sounds crazy but it's true. If I do have a pimple then this is gentle enough to go over the top without any stinging or irritation. I would happily recommend this product and I'll definitely keep buying it.
  26. Works wonders

    I bought this product due to having hormonal break outs and it has changed my life. It is very light and easy to apply and I saw results within a week. I know use it every night after removing my makeup. I have dehydrated skin and it has not dried my skin out as I feared it might instead I now have beautiful clear glowing skin x
  27. Great serum for oily skin

    This is my third bottle of this product. I have very oily skin that can be congested and many serums and creams sit on top of my skin, making it looked oilier. I was looking for something lightweight, easily absorbed and well priced and the Ordinary is it! I find this dries quickly on my skin and while I only use it at night (because I am so oily and sunscreen in the day makes things worse) I am finding that is enough to keep my skin feeling clear and dry. It hasn't had an impact on the clogged pores and the oil returns the next day, but it has been a really good serum so far and hasn't broke me out or made things worse. Would recommended to anyone with oily or slightly problematic skin. You can't go wrong with the price too.
  28. Unsure

    Although this product is very well priced, I don't think it works on normal-dry skin like mine. My skin broke out and went dry and red after using it so I haven't used it since. May work for oily skin.
  29. Pretty good

    I’ve bought my second bottle of Nia now since I ploughed through the first one pretty fast. I’ll slow down now and hopefully will see some changes with long term use. I have combo skin with some PIH so I’m hoping to lessen that with time and consistent use of this.
    I love how this is such an affordable alternative to other similar products on the market! You really can’t go wrong and I know I’m giving my skin a good quality vitamin boost with this serum.
  30. Good and affordable

    I used this and this has brought difference to my acne scars drastically. Although it will take time for it to be effective but have patience and wait for its magic.
  31. Great for blemishes and inflammation

    I've been using this for 2 months everyday now. It's great for reducing inflammation immediately! The redness reduces within a minute of applying and blemishes fade within days.
    Goes great after the salicylic acid
  32. Broke me out

    I started using a few new products at the same time (I know this isn't a good idea, lesson learned!) and started breaking out quite badly. After going back to basics and re introducing other products, I realised that this is what broke me out. Like really bad cystic acne. I know this has worked for a lot of people, but not for me unfortunately.
  33. Great product, but use less if sensitive skin

    I found this product really smoothed out my skin. It does sting a bit on sensitive skin though, so if you also have sensitive skin you might not be able to use it quite as often. Great product for great value though!
  34. Great for oily skin

    I have oily dehydrated skin and suffer from hormonal acne around my jawline, as well as a bumpy textured forehead mainly just below my hairline. I’ve only been using this for a week, but this in conjunction with other “The Ordinary” serums has made a ridiculous improvement in my skin. my hormonal acne has reduced - I currently have just one small pimple, compared to the usual 3 or 4. The bumps on my forehead have reduced by at least 50% already. I’ve been using this in the morning. The product dries quickly, and is easy to layer with other serums if needed. I have found it leaves a powdery feel to the skin if it is used by itself. My skin stays oil-free for longer now that I’m using this. I will certainly be repurchasing when I run out! Only giving 4 stars because I’m not sure how well this product would work without me using the other serums, and I’ve only been using it for a week.
  35. Great price for a great product

    A very light weight, nice texture, effective product for blemish prone skin. I introduced the product to help reduce blemishes and it seems to be working. It reduced the redness of a few blemishes overnight and dried them faster than normal. At this price it will remain part of my routine.
  36. Great product!

    Loved this product, i have fair skin and am prone to cystic breakouts which have only just begun at 24 years of age for 1 year. I found this reduced the intensity of spots and cleared them faster. LOVE!! 11/10 would recommend
  37. Patch test very carefully

    I ordered this product because I had heard it was great for clearing up acne, improving healing time and preventing new breakouts. I have combination skin with a couple of stubborn acne patches plus hormonal acne.
    I patch-tested the serum on a small area of forehead for a few days before moving to my whole forehead and then my whole face after a couple of weeks. I could see the effect it had on pimples and breakouts, causing pimples to shrink noticeably when it was left on overnight. However, after a couple of weeks of using it on my face, I started developing incredibly painful, large pimples on my cheeks where I had never had acne before. They took ages to heal and even though the niacinamide helped them heal quicker, I eventually realised that it was the cause of the breakouts. Once I stopped using it, the new breakouts stopped happening and the existing pimples healed completely after about a month.
    I'm sure other people will have different results and interestingly, it didn't cause breakouts on my forehead (which is more oily), so maybe it is well-suited to oily skin.
  38. Helps with acne scars!

    This product is so cheap and actually works on reducing the pigmentation of my acne scars! I like to use this product to spot treat the scars as when I apply it all-over it stings my skin (I have very tough skin that can usually handle chemicals very well).

    The one downfall is that this doesnt go well under my foundation; it pills and creates horrible texture so I only use it on non-makeup days or at night.
  39. Great for blemishes

    I found this product to be too drying for my skin to use regularly however I had some blemishes and used it as a spot treatment and it’s great! Will definitely be my go to for any breakouts.
  40. Amazing

    The best - my skin has never looked better, this works
  41. Helped with congestion

    I used this product for a 6 month period with other skincare and at the time didn't think it was making much of a difference, but I have noticed the difference since i ran out - i seem to get congestion around my chin area much more easily than when I was using Niacinamide. Given the price will definitely repurchase
  42. Excellent for the price point

    I have been using The Ordinary products for a few months now and really rate them, the niacinamide has been excellent for helping control recurring breakouts but also redness from rosacea, no adverse reactions at all with quite sensitive skin this is a great win!
  43. Well priced, not sure how well it works.

    I've been using The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% for over 5 weeks and have noticed some slight changes in pigmentation on my face, but nothing dramatic. I can't really tell if it's working or whether it's other The Ordinary products that I'm using in conjunction with it.
  44. Doubles as a mattifying primer

    Provides a beautiful matte finish for my foundation. Helps to clear up my skin quicker.
  45. light and good for breakouts!

    I have been using this serum every day for the last three weeks. I have combination skin and it can be quite sensitive. I got this serum because I recently moved to a dry climate and the result was congestion and dehydration. After using the product for a week I could already see a difference and now after three my skin is more hydrated and the congestion has been minimized a lot! Definitely value for money.
  46. Amazing

    Absolutely love this product. I have massive pores on my nose and across the top of my cheeks. After a week of using this product they are minimised. It's amazing what this product can do for the price.
  47. Great with smoothing out pigmentation.

    After using for 2 weeks my pigmentation has blended in more than I ever thought. Love it.
  48. Reduced pores

    I love this product, extremely affordable but has also given me the best results in comparison to any other 'pore minimising' product I've used. i use every night or when i notice my skin looks congested and the next morning my pores are significantly reduced, my skin texture is a lot more even and congestion is gone.

    highly recommended.
  49. If you’re suffering from acne, this is the ONLY product you need

    I’ve been suffering from cystic hormonal acne for more than 6 months and this product has worked miracles on my skin within one week of using it! I’ve stopped getting new acne lesions and it’s even helped to remove all the stubborn “bumpy” acne underneath my skin (the type that stays there forever and you can’t even pop/squeeze even if you tried!). This product has made every single other acne-treating product on my shelf redundant, including products containing salicylic acid, vitamin A and tea-tree oil. I do recommend using this serum both night and day for best results.

  51. Great product

    Great for spot treatments and shrinks pores.
  52. Amazing product for my skin

    This stuff actually really helped my skin! I swear I have tried so many products but nothing like from this product!
    My skin is combination / OILY T-Zone! Hated it, especially because my makeup is only moisturiser and nude by nature.
    My skin is less oily, more bright, clear- even my boyfriend commented!

    Must try considering the low price point also.
  53. Good for oil control

    I bought this serum for my husband who has extremely oily skin (not sensitive). He has been using it in the morning time. It's summer time here in Adeliade and it has definitely helped him with oil control. So yeah, I can recommend it to someone with oily skin.
  54. smooths my skin

    This serum smooths out my skin texture and reduces the size of my pores. I have noticed a bit of oil control too since I've started using this product. I haven't had any new breakouts since using it.
  55. Small amount only needed

    Been using for a week at night before my moisturiser , skin feels less congested and gentle on my face for rosacea
  56. Reduces blemishes, great price!

    I love this product because it really reduces the blemishes, works better then any other product I’ve tried, doesn’t get rid of them completely because it’s hormonal acne but still so happy with the results!
  57. Miracle Product...For Me!

    I cannot overstate how much I LOVE Niacinamide. Like, really, really, really love. Like it's the one and only product I'd take to a desert island kinda love. Here's why:

    I had some nasty breakouts on my cheeks caused by taking a hair-growth supplement (which I'll refrain from naming here) and this product totally cleared it up. Overnight. It's the only time an over-the-counter product has had such an instant and lasting effect.

    It's also eliminated those tiny weird little white bumps you get between your bottom lip & your chin. You know, the ones you see when you push your tongue in between your bottom teeth and lip and make funny faces in the mirror - don't pretend like you don't do it too ;) It's also regulated my oily t-zone - sometimes I don't even have to powder my nose at lunchtime now. This all happened within about a week or two of daily morning use.

    It's not supposed to be used with Vitamin C products, but it pairs really well with TO's MAP, which is a derivative. So you don't have to do without your Vitamin C addiction if you love the effect it has on boosting your SPF effectiveness, like I do.

    Be warned though - Niacinamide doesn't agree with everyone. If it does (and I truly hope you're one of the lucky ones) - hot damn, it's nothing short of a miracle product!
  58. The holy grail

    I'm 15 with combination/oily skin and have acne around my cheeks/mouth and forehead area and this worked so well for me!! so far can see a grand difference in oil production and my overall breakouts.

    ive used it for about a week now and its cleared my under the skin pimples and my whiteheads well.Just a disclaimer that this product doesnt work well for people with really dry skin under your eyes and that the product goes through a stage where it makes u breakout for about a day or two because its gets all the bad stuff out from your pores but aftrer that stage youre good to go with this product :)
  59. Great price point, not sure if it is working

    Fantastic price, however I've been using this for several weeks and I haven't seen an improvement in the clarity of my skin as yet. It does feel slightly smoother, but doesn't look any more even toned. For this price, I will persevere and give it another couple of months.
  60. Didn’t work for me

    I have combo skin and hormonal acne, this serum didn’t work within a week. It may work for people with dry skin but didn’t do anything for me. Was such a shame because it’s such good value
  61. Okay but probably not right for my skin type

    I don't think this is right for my particular skin type as i have aging skin that is prone to break outs. Probably best for younger skin
  62. I like it, i guess

    It goes on well and doesn't pill or anything but I'm just not sure if it's doing much
  63. Not Terrible

    I have been using this product each morning for over a month now and I can't say that I see any noticeable changes in my skin. I use this with the
    The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% in my daily routine to assist with my breakouts that have really increased over the past 12 months. It may be too early to tell so I will continue to use the product until I have finished it. The price is great and it will last you for ages as you only require a small amount. Fingers crossed it starts to show some improvements to my skin and reduces my breakouts over time :)
  64. Maybe I use too many Ordinary products

    I went a bit nuts with Ordinary range and bought a whole bunch so I don’t feel like this specific one has made a huge different. I don’t use frequently. I find the ‘buffet’ to be a good option where my skin is in decent condition.
  65. Controls blemishes and so affordable!

    The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc is a staple in my skincare regimen.
    I am in my mid-40’s and still getting blemishes but since I started using this product, my skin is clear almost all of the time. If I get slack and don’t use it for a few days, the pimples reappear!
    This product should not be used at the same time as any Vit C products as they cancel each other out. I use Niacinamide in the morning and Vit C products in the evening.
    I purchased this product for my teenage nieces and it improved their skin very quickly. At the price point, you absolutely cannot lose by giving this a go.
  66. No frills B serum to help dehydrated skin!

    Thanks for this serum as an alternative to the $80+ b serums out there! I use it in the day under moisturiser with sunscreen and at night before my heavy night cream.

    I think it's great so far! I like the packagaing which allows me to drop it in to my hand and not contaminate the product with my fingers.
  67. Great for oily skin

    This product has definitely reduced oiliness and breakouts for me and smoothed out my skin. Feels super light to apply as well, not heavy like a lot of serums
  68. Worked wonders

    I started using this product about three days ago, at least once a day under my moisturiser. I am surprised at how quickly I am noticing results - my skin has less redness now, looks more flawless, and the pores around my nose have gotten smaller. Would definitely recommend, especially for those looking for something effective while still cheap.
  69. Gentle Product

    This is a very mild and gentle product, which I use most days in the morning before applying moisturiser. It is hard to tell whether it keeps my pores un-congested. I tend to put it only on the areas I usually breakout (chin, forehead and down the nose). For the price I think it's a good investment if you are worried about the odd breakout.
  70. Disappointing

    My skin did not improve at all with over 2 months of twice daily use of this product. It also caused some initial irritation for the first week of use.
  71. Great!

    Best product for my skin so far. Love it so much!
  72. Part of my regular routine now

    I love this product, this is bottle number 2 I'm up to. I found it helped to even out skin tone and actually worked really well to minimise breakouts if used straight away. Also had the added benefit of helping to lighten some of my pigmentation (only very slightly but that's still a win for me)
  73. 10 months in and still lovin' it

    I have combination skin that leans towards the oily side especially in the summer. This has really diminished some of my old acne scars and helped keep my skin shine free for longer.
  74. Smooth

    Perfect for my skin type
  75. Wow!!

    This Serum is great. Have just started using it & can already see a difference in my pore size & amount of oil production. I have also noticed less redness/blotchiness in my face when I wake in the morning. Love it. Have been using TO's Lactic Acid for about the last 6 months which I have also loved but might stick to this one for a while now. Not sticky on the skin either & absorbs quickly.
  76. Great for pigmentation/sun battered skin

    I purchased this for my hubby, to try and help some pigmentation around his temples from years of sun worshipping during surfing. He used it in the lead up to the wedding about six months ago, and he's about to order his second bottle. He's found it's really made a difference in lightening his sun spots and moisturising in general.
  77. Life Changer

    If you are prone to oily skin and acne this is a must have, this absolutely changed my skin, noticeable difference within a couple of days use, this has dramatically reduced acne scarring, pore size and keeps most breakouts at bay, I use it in conjunction with the glycolic toning solution and my skin has never been better! for the price its incredible and worth trying!
  78. Such a good product!

    I have combination skin prone to hormonal breakouts and dryness. This serum is so affordable, keeps my oily T-zone under control without drying out the rest of my face, and has definitely helped me to maintain a clearer complexion. Since I started using this serum, the tone of my skin is a lot more even and I've noticed my pores are also smaller + I don't get whiteheads or blackheads as nearly as often as I used to. I'm so glad I came across this serum, it's definitely become a staple in my skincare routine.
  79. Not worth it

    I had her high expectations on trying this. Unfortunately it broke me out, if you have acne prone skin I’d say don’t gamble with this based on the good reviews I did and was not happy. The only place I use this now in on my nose area where I get blackheads and congestion and things it! I don’t see an improvement though.
  80. Makes me break out

    Sadly this product just doesn't seem to help my acne prone combination skin, which sucks as it seems to be very popular. It really just makes me break out more, even when used for long periods of time.
  81. It’s ok

    I have use 2 bottle of this product, haven’t really notice clear result. But it did lessen the oil in my face. Will still continue to use due of that, it is good price so doesn’t break the bank!
  82. New to the product

    Have only been using this product for a week so haven't seen any clear results. Have heard and seen amazing results from friends that have used this product.
  83. Helps

    I've been using this product for a good year and use it each morning underneath my moisturiser.
    I have definitely noticed that it helps me maintain a good complexion (I still get the odd pimple though!), however I don't feel that it has given much improvement with my acne scarring.
    I'm sticking with the routine to see if it needs a long-term commitment, but may consider trying another Ordinary product to help shift those stubborn marks.
  84. Fantastic

    Great product to far - I have been using it for a few weeks. I am layering different ordinary products and this one is my favourite. It helps with my acne prone skin, i've noticed it clear up.
  85. Holy grail product for oily skin!

    This product is amazing for oily skin I noticed results so quick and the oil production of my skin has decreased dramatically, I use it in the morning and night time after cleansing and it has made such a difference to my skins overall look and feel. Couldn't recommend this more for people who struggle with oil.
  86. Not sure what effect it has

    I've been using this consistently for 3 months, not really sure if it's made much difference. In my mind 30s and main issues are pigmentation, uneven skin tone and congestion. I'll probably purchase again just because it's a good price.
  87. Broke Me Out!

    i have heard such amazing things about this product and from reading the reviews i had such high hopes! Unfortunately this broke me out so bad! I usually only get pimples on my chin bu this gave me pimples all over my face! Im not sure if that is normal and it is just purging my skin but it wasnt something i had read about before purchasing! Im actually really dissapointed as i was sure this would be a great product.
  88. I love this

    This niacinamide is great, it works really well for my combo skin, helps prevent breakouts and has improved my skin texture. This is one of my skincare staples!!
  89. Amazing

    I have noticed a huge difference since using this product. Great for smoothing out and getting rid of textural irregularities
  90. Improved my Acne

    I really love this product it’s just few days I purchased this product and it works perfectly. I have oily skin acne pro and since I started using this product in my AM and PM skin routine my skin doesn’t produce oil and acne anymore. Definitely I purchase it again and it became one of my favourites!!
  91. Amazing Product!

    I can't believe how quickly I saw results with this product.
    I purchased The Niacinamide & Zinc based on a recommendation made by the lovely staff at Adore Beauty. I suffer from quite bad hormonal break outs on my chin and jaw line around the time of my period and they take a while to heal.
    I found that this product helped dramatically to reduce the redness, inflammation & pain of the pimples.
    The price of this product is amazing, less than $10 for a product that is life-changing. 110% would recommend this product.
  92. This broke me out

    I was looking for something to help with oily skin. As it says it is key to decreasing oil and resulting pimples. However, this was not the case for me. It broke me out and my pores felt more congested. It also felt really sticky when applying.
  93. Worked well for acne scars

    I'm on to my third bottle of this product! I have oily/acne prone skin and this has helped me reduce redness and scars. I use it at night.
  94. Amazing

    I have combination/oily skin.
    I have used this product in conjunction with their Buffet & Retinol and have had amazing results.
    I honestly wasn't expecting results to be honest due to the low price point but it does what it says.
    I usually get breakouts around my nose/mouth area and since using this morning & night i have had none. It literally stops it in its tracks! My redness has dramatically improved also.
    This is keeper for me.
  95. Extra-ordinary

    I'm 24 and this is the first serum I've ever tried because I wasn't really into skincare before.

    My skin condition: combination skin, a little dry on the chin area, a bit flaky on my upper nose area, and very oily on my nose and upper lip area. I also have big pores, and often have redness.

    I just started exploring various skincare, and I'm hooked by The Ordinary's products, this one in particular. It's not sticky on my skin, absorbed really quick, and my face looks brighter after only a few times use in the morning and before I go to bed. It's very simple yet effective at the same time, at least for my skin type. One thing to note is that this serum can't be combined with Vitamin C at the same time according to my research about the product because apparently people experience breakouts. I use this serum after The Ordinary Glycolic Toning Solution(PM) or PIXI Glow Toner(AM) and so far my skin looks smooth, nice and clean.

    Love!
  96. Worked on 1st bottle but no clear improvement on 2nd one

    With the first bottle, I could see visible results on my post acne inflammation. The serum is non scented and worked great on evening out my skin tone after a few uses. However, as I am on the second bottle, I have not seen similar result. Also the serum slightly peels when used together with facial oil.
  97. Amazing for troubled skin

    This product is truly amazing I use it AM and PM. I have been using it for 2 weeks now and it has significantly reduced the appearance of my pores. I have very oily skin and usually get break outs. I honestly feel like it has helped reduce the oiliness and I haven't had a zit in 2 weeks! The consistency is great, a true serum, it doesn't feel sticky and I use it underneath foundation/concealer everyday!
  98. Highly recommended

    I would highly recommend this product for any skin types! it controls your oil production, reduces acne breakouts. It's absorbed to your skin really well, leaving no residue at all.
  99. Affordable & reliable

    I have had results with this product after daily using for 6 weeks. I have acne localised to my chin & only apply this serum in that area, it turns white once it makes contact with the skin & absorbs easily. You can layer products on top of it which is a bonus!
  100. Just amazing - keeps my skin clear and oil free

    This product is amazing. I will have to keep a stocktake for life. I used to struggle with bad spots and excessive oil in the T zone. This is the only product I've found that tackles both. I wear it daily in the morning underneath my makeup as a part of my skincare routine. It controls my skins naturals oils and keeps my makeup fresh until the end of the day. 5 stars out of 5!
