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.
- Licorice Root Extract is a multi-functional botanical with skin-soothing, antioxidant, anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, it may be effective in improving uneven skin tone by dispersing melanin pigment.
- Willow Bark Extract has astringent properties and enhances skin cell turnover by promoting gentle exfoliation. It also offers skin-soothing, anti-inflammatory, anti-septic and conditioning benefits.
- Hyaluronic Acid promotes collagen formation, hydrates the skin and increases its volume and density, prevents moisture loss, reduces any sort of trans-epidermal water loss, reduces inflammation, temporarily stabilizes the intercellular skin matrix (the glue that holds your face together).
- 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.

I struggle with fungal acne and most products have ingredients that exacerbate the issue. I love the Ordinary Niacinamide Serum, however the zinc in the formula dries my skin out. The skinlex serum is the only niaciminide serum that doesn’t have junk ingredients or fillers that cause me to break out. I have legitimately spent thousands of dollars on my skin, trying every serum and exfoliant I could get my hands on. And this one outshines them all. FML, am I glad I found you guys.

Been using this for almost 2 months now, I like this better than the TO one. This is not as thick and it is more effective. I can see my nose is not as oily, my only concern for the nose is blackhead now. A bottle can last months. I’m not even half way through the bottle since I only use once a day with 1 pump.

unfortunately caused my skin to become swollen and red
This serum is really lightweight and feels great on the skin, however I have been using it for a few months and have yet to see noticeable improvement in my skin, especially in regards to evening out my skin tone. You do get a nice amount of product for the price, and everyone’s skin reacts differently, so this may just be my personal experience 😉

I’m on my third bottle and I have to finally leave a review! This serum has really saved my oily, acne prone skin. Before I started using this, I was constantly getting breakouts that left my skin tone uneven and visible scars from those breakouts. This serum has really helped to even out my skin, reduce redness and hyperpigmentation. My skin looks great and this serum has played a major role in it!

I love this serum more than the essence – the essence is just too “dry-touch” and not as spreadable as the serum. Love how it makes my skin less oily and pores smaller – there’s a noticeable difference when I stopped using it for 2 months!
International shipping is fast but pretty costly for me, I think buying multiples in an order would make it more worth it. Still the most value for money niacinamide serum in the market though! Seriously thinking of repurchasing as my current bunch is running out.

This product is filling a void currently in the market. No cheap filler ingredients. The formulation doesn’t break me out. My skin feels more moisturized, & my skin tone is brighter.
It is helping my skin, thanks. Good price.
Very fast service! Love the product.
Love this. It’s perfect.

Wonderful product, already working. Thank you.
My skin hasn’t looked this good in 12yrs. My acne rosacea is all but gone. Fade red spots fast. Great customers service and fast delivery. Looking forward to ordering more products.
Love the product because it layers well with all my other skincare. Container is light proof, easy dispensing pump and very effective. Better than the Ordinary brand and so much cheaper than Paula’s Choice. Love. Will try other products from this line.
