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

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.

must have

I am very acne-prone and this keeps my acne in check and it also helps a lot with my scars. I've been using it for more than a year now and it's mainstay in my skincare routine. I use 2 to 3 drops on my face in the morning and at night. I also make sure it doesn't clash with other products. I definitely recommend this for everyone to try.

Evens out skin tone! 💜

It's been a week now since I first used Niacinamide, at first I haven't seen any changes yet with my skin but that's a given, good for those who have seen results as soon as the next morning after using but to those who takes a while to experience the changes, PATIENCE is key. Anyways, what obvious result I noticed after using it for a few days is that my skin tone evened out since I had a bit darker shade around my lower mouth for many years now (which I suspect was caused when brushing the teeth and it always gets exposed to the minty foamish bubbles). But ever since I used Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% it just slowly lightened! Also my face did brighten up from being a little dull and looking tired 👌 One thing tho, It has a little bit of a synthetic-like smell. You can say it smells like a chemical but for me it's tolerable and because maybe I don't put too much, just enough to have my skin covered with a thin layer because when I accidentally put too much felt really tacky. Just be sure to put the RIGHT AMOUNT you need. More is not always better 😉 Still observing for other wonderful results but for now I'll drop this here 💜❤️

One of the best cult products I’ve tried

This has helped my acne-prone skin control pimples, oil, and minimize pores. It has become a must in my skin care routine with how it has helped improve my skin and heal from my acne phase. It seems pricey but the price is reasonable for the amount you use for months and the visible effects.

Wonder of the App!

Not a fan of skin care before but loves reading recos and reviews and this product got me! Been suffering from pimple outbreak after using couple of workout supplements. Tried derma sessions but did not work. On my 4th order now and really the best for blemish and dark marks.
