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
How to use:
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.

I waited for more than a week til I leave a review. Now I could attest that this product is working wonderfully on my skin! Be careful though, I used to do 1-2 drops on EACH side of my cheeks and after a week, it made my skin super dry, like it's a sandpaper. Stopped using it for a day, did my research and everything else. Found out that you're just meant to have 1-2 drops for the entire face. What I do now is I leave 1-2 drops of the product on my palm, spread by putting my palms together and circling it, and then I dab my hands on my face. I could really see how this helped in getting rid of my hyperpigmentation. Just stick to your skincare routine religiously. Can't wait for the results after a month
The best serum ever! Its a magical feeling!
I have oily skin and I love how it immediately controlled my sebum production. It absorbs so quickly and I've had fewer breakouts since I started using it.
Totally keeps my acne away and reduce dark spots.
