Niacinamide + Zinc by The Ordinary is best for dull, spotty, blemished, aging skin
"Not so ordinary... It has a gel-like consistency which my skin absorbs quickly. It effectively lightened my acne scars and aided sebum control. I۪m not a fan of the smell though... The price is reasonable for a very potent product. This was my first purchase from the brand and I۪ll definitely try other products." - Dian J. on Niacinamide + Zinc by The Ordinary
"THE ORDINARY, ORDINARY NO MORE
I’ve been using this product for a week now every morning and bago matulog. But even just for 3 days, makikita mo na agad yung improvement ng skin mo. In 3 days, nabawasan yung oiliness ng face ko and yung pamumula. And now hindi na gaano obvious yung mga acne scars ko. The only downside of this product is sobrang shiny niya sa mukha and sticky kapag tumagal. But still recommended. If you are looking for a product to treat the redness and oiliness of your face and you don’t mind the texture of it (tiis ganda) this is perfect for you." - Anon on Niacinamide + Zinc by The Ordinary
I ran out of moisturizer and used this instead under my sunscreen and it surprisngly worked well! My skin was soft and non-sticky even though it has a thick consistency when applied. It does however give off a shine. I also sometimes use it alone at night and I always wake up to a refreshed, blemish-free skin." - Anon
Apply Niacinamide + Zinc by The Ordinary 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.
The Ordinary's formulations are updated from time to time as part of their 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.

Amazing! I have acne prone and sensitive skin but after a month of using, my dark spots started to lighten. Really recommended this product to all my friends!
My skin felt tighter and smoother after using this product. My hyperpigmentations were lighter too.
When I started using this 3 mos.ago. I noticed that my acne scars started to fade and acne pop ups only during my period which is just natural. This is the best serum for me aside from being affordable it WORKS!
This product really started my skin care journey and it was all worth it. Since the pandemic happened, I've had occasional breakouts causing hyperpigmentation in some areas. As I've done thorough research, "The Ordinary Niacinamide" was definitely a constant mention that could solve my problematic skin.
This serum helps in lightening my acne scars gradually and is a true knight in smoothing my skin texture. I can't really ask for more.
