Refined, cleared, and matte skin!
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!
