Key Beneficial Ingredients:
- Niacinamide is also known as vitamin B3 and has multiple benefits for the skin. Improves skin’s elasticity, helps even out skin tone and texture. Stimulates micro-circulation, mitigates acne and red marks. Suppresses melanin from reaching the surface of the skin and protects the skin from further UV damage. According to a study by Proctor and Gamble, 5% Niacinamide applied to the face for 12 weeks resulted in reductions of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, red blotchiness and skin yellowing. We’re using twice that amount in our formula.
- N-Acetyl Glucosamine is a skin restoring ingredient with wound-healing properties. It is able to gently exfoliate the skin (like alpha and beta hydroxyl acids) without the irritation. It also increases skin elasticity, moisture content and promotes collagen production. Studies show that N-Acetyl Glucosamine in combination with Niacinamide significantly reduced the amount and appearance of hyperpigmentation, age spots and uneven melanin distribution making it a great remedy for repairing sun damage.
- Vitamin B5 (Panthenol) is a powerful humectant that attracts and holds moisture. It also improves skin’s barrier function.
- Allantoin is a potent anti-irritant with skin soothing and healing properties. It is added at the same high concentration that is typically used in scar-healing treatments.

This is the first niacinamide product I’ve ever used so I was a bit skeptical if it would work for me or not. But after using it, I definitely saw a positive change on my skin! It helps control my oily T-zone and tones down redness & post acne marks. The serum texture is like water so the pump bottle wasn’t my favorite because it kept running down my hands and face too quickly. But I decided to decant it into a small spray bottle and I like it much better that way. Overall, I’d recommend it!

The best niacinamide formula I have ever tried. Ever. Reduced redness, pores fading into the background. I love the consistency of the essence– no stickiness, no shine. My favorite product!

Niacinamide is one of my favorite skincare ingredients, and this essence is a perfect example of why. I really enjoy the light, water-weight texture of this essence, and the formulation is excellent. It contains N-Acetyl Glucosamine, which enhances the effectiveness of Niacinamide, along with 2 other skin-soothing ingredients: Panthenol and Allantoin. For me, it has helped reduce the redness in my cheeks, improved the appearance of my skin’s texture, and helps speed up healing time on any blemishes I get. Recently, it’s helped heal a pretty intense wind burn I got on my cheeks while working outdoors for 16 hours. I’ve been using it twice a day for about 6 months, and I’m almost done with my first bottle, so it lasts a long time as well. I’m excited to repurchase this and keep it in my routine!

I absolutely adore this product. It’s really helped improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone on my face. I will keep purchasing this product over and over again.

It’s a little harsh on the areas around my nose, but that’s the most sensitive part of my face, so I’m not taking any points away from the product. I ordered this because I used a face wash and it broke me out everywhere on my cheeks and left really awful hyperpigmentation on my face. I hoped that this product would help with the marks on my face, and I think it really has reduced the appearance of them. I still have some marks, but they’re not as harsh and dark as they used to be. This has really helped me feel more comfortable in my skin again.

My skin loves Niacinamide but in general is super reactive, so this streamlined essence is perfect for me. I’ve gone through a full bottle, and am happily on my second. It’s definitely a HG product in my skincare routine.
