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.

Scared but this changed me..

I have acne-prone skin and acnes like to have staycation on my face. So im scared to try any products coz most doesn’t work and this one does. It didn’t happen magically, but the next day after you applied this serum, you can see the bumps got smaller and eventually bye bye pimples. It’ll take time but you just have to be patient.

I have been using this product for a week already. Initially after three days I can see and say my skin is getting clearer. At work my friends keep on telling me that I look fresh compared before. Maybe it does wonders on my skin. A long term effect is yet to be determined. I am using this product at daytime since i have vitamin C serum at night from another brand. I am looking forward to try their various products and create a review soon. My skin is oily and due to previous breakouts my pores are open and large. I have an uneven, dull skin tone specially on my T-zone area. Hoping that this product will help me resolve my skin problems after continuous application.

Works for me

Got this a week ago (Sept 6) and applied it to my face in the AM and PM. So far, my pimples subsided and my pores have been minimised. It's a bit sticky but absorbs well naman sa skin. Planning to use this with Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA. In fact, I already bought my second bottle. 😊

For me!!!

After 2 weeks of using, I’m really diggin’ The Ordinary products especially this one. I used it in the morning and night (alternatively) with the HA of the same product. The product brightens my pimple marks and noticeably shrinks my pores since I’m too oily. It’s my go to ingredient now. Thanks to the world of youtube skin care :)

Pills under other products

It’s just so so. I don’t like the smell but its tolerable (it smells kinda ocean-y to me). I think I would have liked it better if it didn’t pill, it pilled/balled up whenever i try to layer with any other product whether moisturizer or face oils. I really like niacinamide as an ingredient but i don’t like the formulation of this one. I haven’t had any luck with any of the ordinary products.
