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.

Effective for me/ and great for oily skin as well!

After a month of usage, I noticed my blemishes and severe acne scars beginning to fade and lighten in the process. Alongside that, skin blemishes started to go away, slight sign of ageing reduced; skin texture better; pores apparently smaller. Pimples reduced to minimal amounts. In the first three weeks, I used it thrice a day together with water with apple cider as facial wash. Since it is a serum, I primarily put the Garnier Light Complete Toner, then the niacinamide always follows. Until

I would really want to try this product because of the good reviews about it and because i havent found a great product to enlighten my acne scars and darkspots yet with a better price..actually i found a product that lighten my darkspots and complexion with the olay light perfecting essence which i pair with the olay whip white radiance that also includes niacinamide with vit B3 and B5...however olay is too expensive for me..it costs me P1399 for the essence and P1999 for their cream and that will be a total of P3398.. that's actually the reason why im looking for an effective product like olay which can help me with my budget..and this will definitely help me a lot if this niacinamide10%+zinc1% will work with me paired with the MAP10%...BeautyMNL please do restock..i really want to try it out

Really works!

The serum that is rich in vitamins and minerals! This really moves my skin into something brighter. Im on my 2nd week now and I can see that it really evens out my skin tone and lesser visible pores. My face feels smoother too. I'm looking forward for a brighter and smoother skin everyday.

The best one

I truly truly admire this product as it gave me results. Using it every morning and night (as written in the box) for the past few months has done wonders for my skin. It really minimized the appearance of my pores and did a great job in making the my oily skin calm down. Would highly recommend!

I'll never stop using this

One of my HG and main-stays in my skincare! I've been using this for over a year now, I'm already on my 4th bottle and I think I'll keep on using this forever. I have super oily, acne prone skin. And this helps to "calm" my breakouts and I can really see that it helps minimize my pores especially in my Tzone area. I apply this before my moisturizer every night and I end up waking with glass skin. Sometimes when I skip the moisturizer and only use this, I still end up with smooth, glowing skin (thats why I know the effect comes from this one). You guys should give this a try. It doesn't work wonders overnight, but it sure does help you get to that "road to glass skin" 😉
