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.

Works well over time!!!

I purchased mine last December in hopes of getting rid of my dark spots due to pricking pimples before hehe. I use this every night as a part of my night routine. I encourage everyone to do the same because using this in the morning makes my skin a lot more sensitive to the sun. My face get SUPER red after just spending some time under the sun (even with sunblock). I can say that it does!! work!! It fades dark spots quickly! And by saying quickly, it means using it every night for a month and a half and all your worries are gone!! Would definitely buy another bottle bc mine is almost empty! Ps. mine last me for almost 5 months!!

W/ Salicylic

Finished a bottle already. I think it worked to lighten the dark spots but not that fast. You need to have patience on using this. Applying it day and night together with the facial roller and salicylic acid. I don’t know if it is a good combo, but I read before they use it at the same time so I tried it.

After struggling with cystic acne, I had hyperpigmentation mostly on my cheeks. Then I came across with this product after watching a lot of YT videos. It became part of my morning and night routine, which explains why it's already finished in one and a half month. It did helped me in lightening the hyperpigmentation, it's almost gone now. But I think I'll need another bottle to fully remove the hyperpigmentation. Five stars for the effectiveness and the price. You might find similar products to this but they are more expensive.

Patience is a MUST

I bought this product one month ago upon reading the review section, at the first few weeks I can’t see some drastic changes but after a while it really brightens up your complexion. I still have my pimple marks but they’re slowly fading away. I just love the feeling when you wake up in the morning because your skin is glowing and it really feels supple and it’s not that oily. I think this product could last up to 3-4 months depends on how much you use it, I’m not really fond of the smell but it’s kinda tolerable. I’m still waiting for its wonders hope it works soon

Hero to the rescue!

Magic! That is what I consider this “serum” to be! I have suffered from severe breakouts due to my trying of different skin care products. It took a while for my acne to disappear and when they did, they left those nasty acne marks! I was already considering having a chemical peel procedure done on my face but I’m too afraid that it would irritate my skin (Yes, I have uber sensitive, oily, and acne prone skin). After eons of searching for products - from vitamin C serums to Tretinoins - I finally found this gift from the heavens! It faded my acne marks in just a week and I haven’t even consumed 1/4 of the bottle! Not only does this lighten your scars, it also helps improve the appearance of enlarged pores, fine lines, and uneven skin tone! Must try!
