Refined, cleared, and matte skin!

Natalie P

My skin is very oily, with large pores and ice pick scarring, and prone to cystic acne and whiteheads. I would not be without this product! I've got a backup of two bottles since it sells out so quickly.

I pat it on my cleansed and toned skin, trying not to use too much as anything that doesn't absorb into the skin will simply pill underneath oil and cream products layered over it.

My skin has never been better. I'm 37 and have had acne all my life, and I've only had one cystic acne blemish after two months of use, and all my white heads have been cleared. I appreciate the mattifying effect so much as someone who's fought the oil slick all her life. The congestion and dullness I had before using niacinamide has been banished. I love this stuff. My sister, a former make up artist, noticed that my skin looked more refined - I was so pleased!

Mixed feelings about this product


I gave this product a go because of all the hype and good reviews it had but to my dismay haven't notice any major results apart from pores getting smaller. In saying that I have normal to dry skin and don't have any significant problematic skin concerns apart from minor hormonal breakouts and blemishes so this product is probably not suited for my skin type. The texture of the solution is also sticky on the face and leaves a shiny finish so I have only been using this overnight.

  2. Really Enjoyed This Serum

    Liv- Adore Beauty Staff

    I used this for the first time last week as I noticed my skin was starting to flare up. I was amazed that within a few days of using this I noticed my blemishes reduced very quickly to almost gone! You only need a small amount, I have combination skin and I did not find this heavy or oily and it gave my face a really nice finish.

  5. Holy Grail product for me...


    verified purchaser
    Awesome product, has definitely helped me control the sebum of my skin and sped the healing of the odd hormonal spot. I used to have a lot of closed comedones along my jawline and forehead but this in combination with the Lactic Acid 5% has cleared my skin and prevented them from coming back. First purchased in late September '17, I'm already halfway through my second bottle!
  6. Love it


    verified purchaser
    I have been using this for the past few months and have noticed a dramatic change in the overall health of my skin. This is great at getting rid of those little bumps you get here and there and evens out my skin tone. I would recommend using it at night and waiting 5-10 minutes before putting anything else on top as it can ball up if it hasn't had enough time to soak in. Will be repurchasing in th...

  7. Closed comedones no more - try this now!


    verified purchaser
    If you're combination like me, you've likely encountered those pesky little whitehead-esque bumps, and likely on your forehead! Those are closed comedones, and that kind of congestion is tough to combat, especially when extraction yields not much in terms of results and long-term evenness - they're back before you can say niacinamide.

    Through regular use (3-4 times per week) as a wate...

    verified purchaser
    I have sensitive, fairly acne prone skin in my 20s that I never had in my teens, coupled with redness and have been looking for something that actually works for these concerns. I have definitely noticed this is helping to brighten my skin and it definitely helps reduce the markings left by pimples faster than if they were left alone. My pores are also slowly becoming smaller which I notice most o...

  10. Amazing product for acne rosacea sufferers!


    verified purchaser
    I suffer from sensitive skin and acne rosacea. A dermatologist tried a number of treatments including topical creams which had to be made up by a compounding pharmacy (and cost a bomb) and a 12 month bout of oral antibiotics. I heard about this product and a random Facebook review and it is the only thing that has settled my acne rosacea! It is cheap, easy to apply and gentle on my skin. It took a...

  11. Not just for oily skin types


    It would be incorrect to dismiss this product simply because you have dry skin. I have dry (combination sometimes, but mostly dry skin) and decided to try out this product as I had some breakouts. Mostly credited to summer heat, humidity and clogged pores as a result of this. I mixed 1-2 drops into my usual dry skin moisturiser and the results were almost overnight. Unlike most breakout treatments...

  12. Actually changes the appearance of my pores


    I have tried so many different products to reduce the appearance of my pores - particularly larger ones that I have on my cheeks. This product is honestly the first thing I have found that makes a difference. I'm so ecstatic that I've found something that actually makes a difference and will be stocking up on these!!
  13. Have repurchased


    I am on my third bottle of this serum and find that if nothing else it provides a gentle mattifying effect. When I have left this out of my routine I do feel like breakouts happen more often but there's no way of knowing if that's the case.
  14. Have repurchased


    Oily, congested, acne-prone skin with large pores and icepick-scarring. I use a drop of this nightly as part of a larger anti-acne routine. I’m not entirely sure of its individual contribution, but can say that my oiliness is less and my pores are slightly tighter since boosting the niacinamide in my routine.

    It does leaves a slightly sticky film but I find I can avoid this by mixing ...

  16. It works


    I have been using this as part of a new routine, and it has been very effective I believe. It has been helping clear my pores, and I think really effectively helping lighten some of my PIE. Very effective alongside glycolic toner, and lactic acid 5%.
  17. Changed my life


    I always thought that once my teenage years were over, my acne was over but its been persistent well into my adult life.

  20. Winner


    I have tried just about every product on the market when it comes to my skin, and needless to say, I am very sceptical and hard to please.

    This product has been a winner right off the bat. I love the packaging, I love the texture, I don't mind the smell, I even love the price, but most of all I love the results.

    The way my skin looks the next morning is incredible. This i...

  21. Smooth

    Em H

    This product makes my skin feel so smooth and clean. After I apply it, it does feel a bit tacky but that's only a minor issue. I use it at night, before I go to bed. When I wake up in the morning my skin feels clean and not oily. I really like the effect of this product on my skin texture and have high hopes of it's potential effects on my acne scar with continued use.
  22. The Ordinary Works!


    This is another excellent product from The Ordinary.
    The pipette allows for precise use and application is excellent due to slip.
    I really feel the product working and am impressed with the consistentcy of quality with this brand.
  23. Daily Must Have


    I am 42, with fair skin, prone to sun damage. More to the dryer side than oily.

    You only have to google the benefits of this product. I used a much more expensive Niacinamide years ago, and this one is comparable. I use this first thing out of the shower before the 'buffet' serum and my moisturiser with spf. I find no issues with applying foundation and make up over the top and go...

    When i first started using this I was put off by the burning sensation, (and even after more than a month of use it still tingles and feels burny every night!) - however, some research about the 'niacinamide flush' eased my misgivings. Also, in the morning m skin is always settled, not red at all. So don't be put off! I'm starting to see some serious results, my breakouts have settled and my overa...

  26. Niacinamide is great stuff - product itself is quite good - but a few drawbacks


    I have only been using this for a short while, but so far it is good. The price factor and potency are exceptional and the product is good. It does eventually mostly sink in/or dry, but it does still leave the skin a bit tacky and I can always feel there is a layer of something there. I am not convinced that the addition if zinc was ideal or not but have no particular issues with that. For me, it ...

  27. Fantastic


    I have only used this product twice and the first night I used it, I woke up in the morning to brighter skin and not only that it kept my oil very minimal throughout the day. I have very oily skin and to find a product that works so fast and stops me from becoming oily during the day is amazing. I will be purchasing a few when they are back in stock so I don’t ever run out!!!
  28. Does What it Claims


    I use this every second night and it has made a noticeable difference to my oily, acne-prone skin. It has faded my brown acne scars, controlled my sebum production throughout the day (after using this overnight), reduced acne inflammation/redness and has made my skin brighter and smoother. I recently purchased a second bottle due to how much I love this product!

    I got this because i heard rave reviews of it for people with my skin type- congested and acne prone so i thought i'd take the plunge and try it out, and after about a week of using it i developed rash like pimples on my cheeks- which is not where i usually get them, nor is it how my skin usually has pimples which for me are usually deep cystic ones .

    I have oily skin and my pores are enormous! But since using this product my skin has improved a lot. Im a lot less oily and my skin is so much softer. It even got rid of my uneven skin tone. Plus the price is amazing!
  34. Amazing quality for an amazing price


    This stuff is amazing!! It has visibly reduced redness and breakouts and I've only been using it for about two weeks. My skin has improved tenfold and I am so happy with it. Definitely worth the money!!
  35. Amazing


    I love The Ordinary's Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%. I've just started on my second bottle, and I use it every morning before Hyaluronic Acid 2%.

    I've always had a congested t-zone and chin, but this clears up my pimples in no time at all, and significantly reduces oiliness.

    Miracle product, that I'll continue to purchase until The Ordinary brings out something better!
  36. 2nd Little Bottle


    On my 2nd bottle within 4.5 months. Initially used to aide in controlling the sebum although it's also leaving a brighter and even skin tone on my dehydrated oily skin.

    Very, very happy !

    After using this in conjunction with the Salicylic acid my hormonal acne has cleared up significantly in just a month.

  41. Think it's working!


    I have been using this for about 10 days and I believe it has reduced my pore size a bit. I've changed a few products lately and my skin has finally settled- I think this one is definitely helping! I apply morning and night before moisturiser/sunscreen/make up. smells good, goes on nicely
  42. Good for oil control


    I'm really impressed with this. I have congested dehydrated skin, I pop it on in the morning before moisturiser. I've found it slows down oil production throughout the day and I'm slowly seeing an improvement in texture and pore size. The results aren't immediate but it's definately doing something!
  43. Quick Results


    I was astounded by the impact that this serum had my skin. Smaller pores, reduced break outs and a much smoother surface. It goes on really nicely and is such an amazing price! The Ordinary has really surprised me!
  44. Great treatment for little bumps


    I don't really have major acne problem but little bumps (congestion?) keep growing on my forehead. The first week I used this product, all of them disappear and my forehead became really smooth. Although later on, they grew back a little bit but still better than original situation.

    Will repurchase.
  45. Great for post acne red marks


    Since using this ive noticed my post acne red marks has faded so much quicker than normal (normally takes like up to a year or so to fade on its own).
    Its only been a few months since using this but they are no longer bright red and have become very faint. Even my family and friends has noticed how nice my skin is becoming.

  49. Fab product at the price it is


    I've been wanting to find a product with Niacinamide for ages, but held back because some of the concentrated serums and brands with this ingredient percentage, was way too expensive for me to pull out the empty wallet. It's only been a short while since I started using it, so I can't say if it's working immediately to brighten up my hyperpigmentation and patchy skin, but I can say that it hasn't ...

    I could not recommend The Ordinary Skincare more highly. The Niacinamide has been great in helping lighten my acne scars without aggravating my skin or my bank account. Although it doesn't promise to stop future breakouts, I've found that it has done wonders for sebum regulation so my face is a lot less oily throughout the day resulting in less pimples overall!


    This little serum is magic in a bottle. If you have enlarged pores, this is the thing for you. Not only did my face look so much better with this, it completely got smoother as well. Definitely recommend to use this, its so concentrated.

    Shannon (Staff)

    Niacinamide is already an ingredient in quite a few of my serums, but I've always been looking for something that contains more of a high concentration, and that doesn't break the bank. I wasn't certain if it The Ordinary Niacinamide right for me, but at this price it didn't seem like too much of an investment.

    For reference: my skin type is normal to combination, I'm prone to dryness...
