La Roche-Posay Pure Niacinamide 10 Serum review

We’ve seen an increase of 42% of you searching for an essential nutrient and vitamin: Niacinamide! Known for its multi-purpose nature niacinamide is an all-rounder for your skin, targeting everything from dehydration and skin texture to hyperpigmentation and visible signs of ageing. If you’re looking to incorporate vitamin b3 (niacinamide) into your routine but you’re concerned about reaction or sensitivity the La Roche-Posay Pure Niacinamide 10 Serum is a great place to start…


The Most Important Thing About This Niacinamide Serum Is…

The Pure Niacinamide 10 Serum fights pigmentation at its core, whilst correcting and preventing the recurrence of dark spots. But it doesn’t stop there, the La Roche-Posay Niacinamide Serum also works to repair the skin barrier, soothing and repairing the skin to reduce redness. And, oily skin types can benefit too; the powerful dermatologically-tested formula minimizes blemishes and enlarged pores. We know it’s hard to believe this little serum has so many benefits, but the results speak for themselves…

Hero Ingredients:

It’s all in the name! The Pure 10 Serum is packed with 10% niacinamide to instantly brighten your complexion by blocking melanin production, and therefore reducing the appearance of pigmentation and dark spots. The 10% niacinamide is also an anti-inflammatory soothing irritation and works to repair your skin barrier. 5% HEPES gently exfoliates your skin to minimise enlarged pores and prevent the reoccurrence of blemishes. To finish the formula is concentrated in hyaluronic acid for a hydrated and fresh finish.

What Does It Feel Like?

Although the formula has a creamy, white appearance, it instantly absorbs into the skin for a mattified invisible finish.

What Does It Smell Like?

The serum is relatively fragrance-free, however, the mix of ingredients boasts a slightly light refreshing scent.


How Do You Use The Product?

Apply morning and evening to the face, neck and if needed hands. Avoid the eyes. The pipette is difficult to use due to the creaminess of the formula; I find using it as a scoop an easier approach.


What’s Special About The Design?

If you’re a fan of La Roche-Posay serums you’ll instantly recognise the iconic bottle shape that fits perfectly into the rest of the collection. The frosted purple glass bottle is recyclable and makes an eye-catching addition to the other blue (Hyalu B5), orange (Pure Vitamin C) and red (Redermic B3) bottles in La Roche-Posay’s lineup.



Dermatologist-tested, allergy-tested and ophthalmologically-tested.
