Happy self care sunday with Good Molecules Niacinamide Serum! If you haven’t heard of niacinamide or Vitamin B3 in skincare you came to the right place. Let’s find out more about this magical ingredient and serum:
Niacinamide, which is also known as nicotinamide, is the active form of niacin – or Vitamin B3. It is usually found in water-based serums and is non-acidic and non-irritating. If there is one ingredient that claims to do it all, it is this – a great multitasker that can sooth breakouts, get rid of enlarged pores, lighten up hyperpigmentation and smooth fine lines. Sounds good to be true?
My Review: Just like the Ordinary, which has a similar product, this serum gives immediate results and a similar photoshopped effect. What I mean by this effect is that my pores instantly (I mean it!) become smaller and less noticeable, and the whole complexion is smoother and more unified. The serum is lightweight and fragrance-free with a simple ingredient list. I use this with a niacinamide brightening toner – together I think these give the best results and hopefully both can can help with hyperpigmentation in a long run. Overall, I think GM serum is not as thick and tacky compared to TO so I favour GM just a tiny bit more.
