What the brand says: A solution containing 10% niacinamide and 1% zinc; helps improve the skin condition by reducing the appearance the blemishes and balance visible sebum activity!
MY TAKE ON THE ORDINARY NIACINAMIDE 10% + ZINC 1% BLEMISH FORMULA
Packaging: The product comes in a characteristic not-so-fancy ‘the-ordinary’ glass bottles that look truly ordinary but are quite sturdy and easy to carry around.
Texture: The solution feels like glycerin but settles into a matte and non-greasy film on the skin. Gets absorbed into the skin pretty quickly.
Fragrance: The fragrance of this product is a bit unusual (not in a bad way) just like the other ‘The Ordinary’ products but you will get used to it.
How I use and staying power: To use, apply 3-4 drops of the product on your facial skin and massage until well absorbed. Use it in the AM and PM.
I have been religiously using this product for almost a month now and I feel this is a great time to review this product. I have acne issues which runs in my family and is usually hormonal. Before I started using this product, I did have few blemishes and clogged pores (tiny white blemishes around mouth area and chin). I would also like to mention that my acne problem has improved a lot over the past few months thanks to some great skin care products I have added to my routine. Whatever I use, I always get acne before periods and this product has literally been a life saver for me during that-time-of-the-month! My skin has gradually improved a lot and I get blemishes rarely! The product does work 100% but you need to give it some time to work. I like to use it during the day, also under my makeup. I won’t say that acne and blemishes have completely stopped but the frequency has reduced to a great extent and even if I get one or two pimples, they go away the very next day leaving behind no scars. I am highly obsessed with this product and if you have acne issues (major ans severe acne might need layering with other products from the same brand), you certainly need to incorporate this product in your beauty routine.
