CLAIM TO FAME: A high-strength vitamin- and mineral-packed formula to minimize the look of blemishes

FAST FACTS: Contains a high 10% concentration of niacinamide (vitamin B3); reduces the appearance of spots, marks, and congestion; supported by zinc salt of pyrrolidone carboxylic acid to balance visible aspects of sebum activity; features a pH level of 5.50-6.50; vegan formula is cruelty-free and doesn’t contain alcohol, oil, silicone, and nut

PERFECT FOR: Dull, spotty, blemished, aging skin

”Not one to write reviews but I love this serum so much I had to. I have extremely sensitive, acne-prone skin. I first tried the Niacinamide + Zinc combo via Glossier for ~quadruple the price, half the bottle, and an almost water-like texture (not what I prefer personally). These ingredients really REALLY cleared my skin of hormonal, cystic acne without being too harsh like other acne targeting products tend to do (Salicylic, Benzoyl, Retinol etc) but the Glossier serum specifically dried me out.”

”In addition to clearing my skin, The Ordinary’s version of this serum made my skin SO SOFT and also evened out my skin tone A BUNCH. The texture is a little bit thicker and sits and sinks into my skin so well. I use this at least every other night, and NEVER mix with Vitamin C products, as Vitamin C + Niacinamide can cancel each others’ effects out. After using for about ~3 months, I love my skin and can even leave the house without wearing any makeup. THANK YOU DECIEM FOR CREATING MY HOLY GRAIL <3”

WHAT YOU GET: (1) Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
INGREDIENTS: Aqua (Water), Niacinamide, Pentylene Glycol, Zinc PCA, Tamarindus Indica Seed Gum, Xanthan Gum, Isoceteth-20, Ethoxydiglycol, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin

Formulations are updated from time to time as part of our commitment to innovation. As such, the ingredient list shown here may vary from the box of the product depending on time and region of purchase.

Apply to entire face morning and evening before heavier creams.

Contraindications: If topical Vitamin C is used as part of skincare, it should be applied at alternate times with this formula (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and this formula in the AM). Otherwise, Niacinamide can affect integrity of pure-form Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid).

Notes: While Niacinamide and Zinc PCA can reduce the look of blemishes and balance visible sebum activity, neither is a treatment for acne. For persistent acne-related conditions, it’s recommended you use Benzoyl Peroxide and/or Retinoic Acid. DECIEM doesn’t recommend ongoing use of BHA such as Salicylic Acid for persistent blemishes. For temporary improvement in appearance of blemishes, Salicylic Acid would help. This formulation can be used alongside acne treatments if desired for added visible skin benefits.

Independent studies suggest Niacinamide is also an effective ingredient for brightening skin tone.

70% Improvement!

To start off, here’s my skin condition: 1. Combination 2. Blackheads on nose 3. Whiteheads on jawline 4. Acne scars 5. Random minimal breakouts What did this serum treat after almost a month of use? 1. My skin has improved in elasticity and smoothness 2. My acne marks have faded 3. I didnt have random breakouts anymore. I’m satisfied, but I’ll probably try something else from the same brand than to repurchase.

Works like magic

Was a bit hesitant to try this at first since I'm not familiar with acids and i was torn between this and Alpha Arbutin. But after searching a lot I decided to try this one first and I'm amazed as I saw results in less than a month. I'm so glad this went well with my current skincare products. Beware tho with using this with other products and be sure to read the ingredients of every product because if you use this together with other ingredients that aren't compatible with this one your skin might not react well. Knowledge is power.

I've learned that Acne is Vitamin and Zinc Deficiency

I've researched that most of the product that can heal acne are retinol ( Vitamin A), Niacinamide(Vitamin B3), Vitamin C(Ascorbic Acid) Vitamin D(Sunlight) Vitamin E and Zinc. I conclude that acne is not a disease but vitamin deficiency. So I take vitamins (ConZACE) and try topical products like this. I realize that I need to take care myself in and out and avoid using harsh products (use water a facial wash) and I dont get whiteheads and blackheads anymore. I also tone my skin with Licorice pH Balancing Toner (no alcohol) and use the ordinary niacinamide and zinc as a serum and moisturizer. The results was amazing( as in suuuuuuuupeeeeer ammmmaaaaziiiing.

This product is effective. I noticed an improvement with my hyperpigmentation and scarring with regular use. In my experience, there is a slight stinging sensation (not really painful) with flushing/redness after application which fades after a few minutes. However, acne is similar before and after. I would recommend this if you're looking to brighten up your complexion and lighten blemishes. I've gone through two bottles already and looking to repurchase again.

one of the staples in my morning routine

I have been using TO for almost a year now. I got a wide range of TO's products from the States and rotate them in my skincare regimen. But my constants in my morning routine are TO's Alpha Arbutin and TO's Niacinamide. I have repurchased this 3 times already. I do not have any major hyperpigmentation. Just an occasional darkness from a pimple scar. It has helped with that. I mainly love this product for keeping my sebum at bay. My skin is combination type--normal on the cheeks but oily on my T-zone, especially on my nose. This doesn't help with the appearance of pores, just the sebum activity in them. I just use two drops everyday in the morning. It doesn't leave a sticky residue and it doesn't affect make-up application afterwards. A bottle can last 3-4 months on me. Great value for money.
