We’ve been promising you a review of The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zink 1% serum for a long time now. We are always praising it on the Instagram and on the blog as well, and we can surely say that it’s our favorite product from The Ordinary, but not just from them, from all cosmetic products that we have. This can be confirmed by probably twentieth bottle we used, and always ordering more so we don’t run out of it.
This little glass bottle has a highly concentrated niacinamide (vitamin B3) with zink salts that helps balanced production of sebum.
I would say that our love for this product came by accident. I always had a clear face, pimples and acne were nowhere to be seen until everything literally changed over night. One night I woke up with a couple of acne on my face and i thought it’s probably just hormones or too much sweets. But the condition didn’t change and with time it became even worse. My next move was to go see a dermatologist, and I went there every two weeks, I had my face cleansed and used a lot of products that made my skin more drier and made it look even worse. And don’t get me started about pain. All of you who have or had acne surely understand this situation. So one day I decided to quit going to dermatologist and to change all of the products I was using, to make things simple. First product I got was The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zink 1%, I got rid of all other creams except Avene and Eucerin sindet soap, which is gentle and doesn’t irritate skin.
In the first month I already noticed big changes, cystic acne were gone, and only small blemishes were left. With regular application my face had completely cleaned up. I wish I had pictures to show you the differences. I no longer have an acne problem, and if they turn up during that time of the month, they are gone very quickly. Now you understand why I can’t do without this product. I rotate and change the others, but zinc is on my face daily.
The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zink 1% performs excellent on greasy and mixed skin, reduces sebum secretion, is perfect for hyper pigmentation blemishes from pimples and acne, and with regular use, skin becomes balanced. You can order this product on their own website, on Asos, and of recently Douglas.
