The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

£5.00 - £9.00

Perfect for those with oily skin, The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a concentrated serum that reduces the appearance of blemishes and pores.

Enriched with niacinamide (vitamin B3), The Ordinary gel-like serum gives skin a more visibly even appearance by minimising congestion. Also known as vitamin B3, the do-it-all ingredient strengthens the skin’s immunity and locks in moisture, so skin is nourished and hydrated.

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%’s gentle serum also regulates sebum production. This shrinks pores and limits the production of bacteria that cause blemishes, so skin is left looking smoother and less oily. The high 1% concentration of zinc salt repairs damaged skin and encourages the creation of collagen, a natural protein that keeps skin looking supple, plump and youthful-looking.

Why We Love It

Despite its thick liquid texture, the serum absorbs into the skin almost immediately. This makes it perfect for those with an oily skin type, as it doesn't leave an oily residue or create any additional shine while smoothing enlarged pores and controlling breakouts.

Precise application is quick and easy thanks to The Ordinary’s built-in pipette.

How To Use It

Apply to the entire face in the morning and evening, before applying heavier creams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great I use Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and combine with hyaluronic acid 2% + b5. works great for my sensitive skin, it feels smoother after 2 weeks of using, and my scars are less visible + i noticed less breakouts. serum is not irritating. it has a bit of a sticky consistence and when i applied SPF/make up it didn't work very well so I only use as part of night routine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not wowed but will keep using I understand that this product is for oil control. I bought because I have combo skin with an oily cheek and nose area and some hyperpigmentation from using acids in the past . However I found that this gave me bad dry patches everywhere and isn’t even a bit moisturising even though the watery gel like texture makes it seem like it would be. I was able to fix this by purchasing the ordinary HA +b5 but it is annoying to layer two products when I hoped one would suffice . It has no particular smell, like all good skin products should which is a plus . I’ve had the product for under a month though and I intend to use it up so we’ll see.
