    THE INKEY LIST - Niacinamide

    THE INKEY LIST Niacinamide Reviews

    Perfect for scarred combination skin!
    I have combination skin that breaks out on a regular basis. I'm also prone to scarring, but this really does help! Use it twice a day (three times if I shower mid-day). It has really helped even out my skin, reduce redness in breakout areas, and helped tone down/fade-out old acne scars. Used in combination with THE INKEY LIST Hyaluronic Acid Serum and dear, Klairs Supple Unscented Preparation Toner.
    Perfect for combination skin!
    22F, oily T-zone with dry-normal cheeks, hot and humid weather. During summer, my T-zone tends to get so oily I get worried the United States will start showing interest in it, but I was also worried about that introducing a niacinamide product would dry out my cheeks. I decided to give this one a go since it also has HA, and tbh, I only realised how much it had done for my skin once I'd stopped using it. I only used to use it every other night and it made my combination skin just look like normal skin- no sheen of oil anywhere, even at the end of the day, but also not dry in the slightest! I lovvve the balance it brought. I wouldn't call the product very hydrating, but the texture is lovely, easy to apply, sinks in quickly, feels very breathable. Only cons would be that this is not one of those niacinamide products that deliver on the brightening front at all, and also that it forms a crust at the opening the morning after I use it- but I think that's a packaging flaw, not a product flaw. Overall vvv happy with the product, would definitely re-purchase, especially in the summer.
    Did nothing for me:/
    The serum gives a really sticky feeling when I apply it and for some reason, I wake up with really oily skin the next morning which is very weird, the night I don't use it I wake up with normal skin....it did cause breakouts which I assume was purging but that's about it, had no positive effects whatsoever:/ Ps-they really need to change their packaging, the dispenser is horrible and the product keeps getting accumulated there
    New favourite
    Although I've got oily skin and thought The ordinary niacinamide would be better, I prefer this product as it gives my skin a really nice glow and although I never used the famous pea-sized amount on my face(you need more than that for a good coverage) it never piled under other products. Really happy to have tried it, new favourite product.
    Really nice niacinamide! Sank into my skin well and didn’t pill up under other products! Definitely prefer this over The Ordinary's niacinamide, it really pilled up under my other products and felt sticky.
    The best niacinamide
    37 years old, combo skin with breakouts. Light serum but NOT sticky. Sinks into the skin !! Balances my excess oiliness and it is a great base under make up. Reduces redness and my skin looks glowy and brighter!!
    Better than expected
    This product has always had good reviews but with the ordinary products I tend to find that they are overhyped and it does put me off buying them. I have been using this for a few months and my skin tone seems more even and my skin seems brighter. I will continue to repurchase this product. As with the other reviews, I agree I wish it came in a bigger component but a little does go a long way, you need just a small amount at once. Also, the product can run out of the opening quite quick and it will dry and create a white crust over the lid but it is easily wiped away and doesn’t transfer onto anything.
    Very impressed
    I'm not going to lie, I love Verso's Hydration Serum which has niacinamide as its key ingredient but I have been meaning to try this to compare. I like that it is such a silky texture. My skin drinks it so it doesn't leave any residue at all and it leaves my complexion both hydrated and balanced.
    Use this every day! Knocked off a star because I wish they'd do it in a bigger size... And also agree with the comments about the dried leftover serum that clogs on the lid opening.
    Large Pores
    I bought this for large pores, on my nose and chin area, which within 30 mins of applying my foundation, always came through ruining the area. This has been a lifesaver. I apply after toning and before moisturising. The result being NO large pores breaking through. No other products have worked as well as this. You only need a little; a blob less than a pea. Started with 1 bottle, now buying in bulk because it goes out of stock.
    Good product, uninspired package
    The product is good, but the lid needs to be changed. Very uninspired design. Gets dirty very quickly because there's always leftover serum after you pour it in your hand. It dries on top of the lid and looks bad. Not to mention there is a small waste of product because of this issue.
    Careful around the lips
    This product is really good at targeting my most aggressive looking acne. Making it look a lot better by the next day. I also had extremely oily skin before. It was so bad I would wake up with a wet face even if I didn’t moisturise too much before bed. But this has really helped to control that while still giving a nice glow. The reason it’s not 5 stars is that I have really sensitive skin but it passed the patch test so when I applied it after the 4th day, around my lips started to tingle and swell slightly. So if you want to go for it I would say stay half an inch above your lips just incase your sensitive to it.
    To be fair I didn’t really know why I purchased this, I just bought it because everyone on TikTok recommends niacinamide, but I have noticed that it makes my skin more hydrated. It doesn’t get dry but at the same time it reduces oiliness. However when it is sunny, I do not recommend, as when you sweat, it becomes greasy. Very affordable and long-lasting. My first bottle lasted 4 months.
    ..In love with this
    First ordered 2 months ago, I didn't have any idea of what niacinamide or even what skincare is. I started having some serious breakouts and didn't know how to calm my face. A friend introduced me to the Inkey List and suggested me to use this product along with some others. This is a lightweight product which soothes my skin and I can say it does a great job in removing the oiliness. It's really gentle and although I'm not sure if this one helped with the breakouts I can tell it helped in reducing the black spots for sure. I would highly recommend it to all those suffering from post-acne black spots and all those who want to sleep in a velvet face skin! <3
    Changed my skin!
    Noticed a difference when I stopped using! Will repurchase!
    Love it
    My skin looks so much better now, and it has only been a month. Highly recommend it.
    I started my skincare journey at the start of the year and I got The Ordinary Niacinamide first. It was ok, did the job but I didn’t like how it felt especially when I first put it on my face. This one is so much better. I feel like niacinamide has really helped my skin as my pores look smaller I’ve had fewer breakouts. I always break out at that ‘time of the month’ and after a couple of weeks of using this before that time, I didn’t get any blemishes at all. I would deffo recommend adding this to your skincare routine.
    I only use it for 3 days and I am very satisfied! The skin glows! The texture is pleasant. I will definitely repeat the purchase more than once.
    It's a great niacinamide serum, not too drying, great for my semi sensitive skin, though it feels a tiny bit sticky at first, absorbs into the skin in 5 minutes or so.
    Great product
    Amazing product. 4 stars because my bottle was leaking.
    Loved this at first but then it began to break me out.
    I just started using this product and I am already seeing a difference. It sinks in the skin super quick and is really hydrating, has a calming effect and reduces redness. I am really happy I bought this product and I will repurchase it again for sure! I can't wait to see the long term results! Please make a supersize of this.
    Great product...
    I've really enjoyed using this product. I feel that me skin is brighter and my pores have reduced. It sinks in really quickly and doesn't pile under other products. I think that it has also helped with preventing dryness and sensitivity from retinol use which is a huge bonus. Tip for use - you really don't need a lot. I have a habit of slapping on skincare products but have learnt not to with this one. That being said, even with moderation it soon goes with regular use (I use it twice a day) so would like to see a larger version. And beware if you travel, it has a tendency to leak!
    I was recommended this for spots I was suffering from due to wearing PPE at work all day. As an NHS worker I have to wear a mask every day all day. This stuff is a miracle cream, it cleared my skin up fast and easily. 100% would recommend.
    Best for dry skin
    The niacinamide is great for normal to dry skin. One of my staples!
    Love it
    Amazing product, I'm always sceptical of products like this but I've seen a huge improvement in fine lines and redness after nearly 4 weeks of use, this has become a staple item for me in my routine. So lightweight on the skin as well.
    Love this, feels so light, a couple of drops so easy to apply, my new favourite.
    love ittttt
    i lovee the product but its tooo tinyyyy of an amount.
    I've been struggling for ages trying to find the right serum to help with my skin issues (slightly oily, some adult acne, and redness/pigmentation left from acne) and after trying so many different things and reading up on Niacinamide I thought I'd give this product a go - it was exactly what my skin needed! After using it for around 3 weeks now, my skin is much clearer and the redness/pigmentation from previous acne has started to fade away. I should note I don't have major acne issues (just the odd angry pimple!) so I'm not sure how well this would work for those with more severe acne scarring, but if (like me) you're conscious about some redness/pigmentation left from adult acne then I fully recommend this product!
    Great product but packaging is awful
    Works well to hydrate and purify the skin and can be layered if you don’t put too much on. The only thing that bugs me is that I took it on a flight and everything leaked out despite the fact that the lid was still on, and because of the consistence it took a while to clean it off my other toiletries.
    Wanted to like it so bad:(
    Very disappointed with this. It did an amazing job of reducing oiliness and making my skin look brighter. However, after a week or so it gave me loads of closed comedones which took months to go away. I'm sure it works well for some people but if you have sensitive skin beware this may cause a reaction.
    Veryy nice
    I really love it! It is my first time using niacinamide, I bought this one since my skin is on dryer side and my T zone is oily.. It doesnt dry me out and my oilynes is ragulated on my T zone and pores look smaller
    Best niacinamide serum I have used
    I have tried the ordinary’s niacinamide serum and also alpha H’s vitamin B serum and I think the Inkey list is my favourite one so far. It sinks in and doesn’t leave the skin sticky and plays well with moisturizer/SPF and makeup. It’s also balancing for those that use a variety of acids and retinol to control acne, which can cause dry, flakey irritated skin occasionally. The only thing I don’t like is the packaging, it’s really clumsy to use. A dropper bottle or squeeze tube would be much better.
    It left my face a little red at first but now I'm used to it. It's a little sticky so you need a tiny half-pea sized amount to cover the whole face to avoid it. In a week my skin looks firmer and pores tighter, less redness! I use it twice a day after tonic and before moisturizer or sunscreen. The package is ok for me, it crystalizes a bit on the outside but doesn't clog the opening. Great serum!
    Magic serum
    I have been using this product for about a month before moisturising, and I can see a noticeable difference in redness. I have very sensitive angry skin, and this product has cleared it up really well. I like that it doesn’t have a scent! Bottle is very small so I’ll be needing a new one soon... ;-)
    Holy grail
    Just used for 3 days and I’m in love with it, made my skin smooth, soft, bright and hydrated. I have sensitive skin and it doesn’t irritate my skin at all. Highly recommended
    I was breaking out a lot on my chin and had hyperpigmentation around my nose and cheeks and this has pretty much cleared this up! I use it every morning and night before moisturising and it’s worked a treat. Amazing for the price point also
    Niacinamide serum
    The Ordinary Niacinamide serum is a bit drying for me (due to zinc I guess) I was looking for a replacement that wouldn't ruin my budget. And I found niacinamide from The Inkey List. I've been using it for about 2 weeks now, so not too long, but I'm pleased with it. It's very lightweight, sinks into my skin very quickly, and doesn't feel sticky. My skin seems to look brighter and fresher, I had no reaction after using it.
    I love this serum. It leaves my skin super soft and found it easy to use and to spread. However their packaging is awful. I wish they would change the packaging
    One of my favourites
    Love this little gem! Always end up going back to this niacinamide, it’s one of my favourites and my skin always looks so nice using it. Would definitely recommend!
    Has a gorgeous texture, a pleasure to use. DOESN'T FOAM. The only peeve is the plastic packaging. Would repurchase and you definitely see a decrease in pore size within a week.
    I used The Ordinary one for a while but decided to try this one and don’t get me wrong The Ordinary one is good but this one is absolutely amazing, i use it at night and it’s made my skin so much better! i never leave reviews ever but i was blown away by this product so i would say try it, but remember it won’t always work for everyone <3
    LOVE IT!!
    Amazing serum! Bought this one as I found the Niacinamide from The Ordinary really has a funky smell and I definitely prefer this one.
    It doesn't really sink
    Just doesn't sink well into the skin and rolls under every SPF. I usually use Paula's Choice niacinamide and I'm looking for a cheaper alternative to use in the morning. Well, this is definitely to use in the evening, not aesthetically pleasing.
    Great serum
    This is a wonderful little potion. It absorbs really well into my skin and plays well with my moisturizer and sunscreen. I've been using it just for a few weeks and my skin is noticeably brighter, and the pores, the pores have vanished. My skin just looks smooth as a baby's bum.
    It's alright
    I have dry, sensitive skin. I apply this product on blocked pores and redness. It reduces the redness a lot and it usually makes a positive difference to blocked pores. However, the texture is a little gluey and the bottle lid gets crusty.
    Cheap but perhaps not cheerful
    I am rather confused at all the positive reviews. The texture is sticky and really tacky, even after the serum has set. It feels like I've spread glue all over my face. Not a fan at all and won't be purchasing again.
    Great product
    It definitely works, makes skin more even and healthy looking. Definitely recommended
    This is the best niacinamide serum I have used. I have sensitive combination skin that gets very dry in the winter and this has really calmed down my skin and kept it feeling soft and fresh! Much less sore than other niacinamide I've used from other brands too - I have already re-purchased twice! Would highly recommend it.
    Bye Bye Mask-ne!
    I haven’t ever struggled so bad with spots in the past, mainly hormonal jaw cysts now and again but living in this pandemic and due to being in full PPE everyday for my job, I’m developing a lot of pimples on my chin, laughter lines and jaw. After researching the antioxidant properties of Niacinamide, I gave it a go and I can defo say it’s helping! Less spots, less redness. I can put this onto an area at night and by morning they are smaller and less red! Would recommend 100%!
    Best niacinamide serum
    I'm using it for just a few days. It reduces the redness of my skin and absorbs very fast. I use it in the morning before my hydrating cream. I hope that my pores will look smaller in time.
    Love it !!
    Just bought it before 2 weeks, and I'm in love with this, I use this at night only cause I have oily skin and this serum has a tacky feel to it, but I'm in love with this serum, it hydrates, feels light and I also have started to see the results already, Must buy it again !!
    Very good
    Very good for the price.
    I used The Ordinary's Niacinamide that just left my skin feeling weird, sticky and it peeled after a few hours. This sits under my moisturiser perfectly and I have noticed a difference in my skin's spots for sure. I alternate this and a different company's C Vitamin serum in my morning routine.
    Great Product!
    I’ve struggled with spots for a while now and I’ve heard that niacinamide is meant to help. Well, it has! I’ve tried to use other products that contain niacinamide (for example, the ordinary niacinamide and zinc serum) but nothing worked. Then I decided to give this a go and it has worked wonders! It’s not too heavy on the skin and it has really helped to clear up my spots. Love this product so much!
    Takes time!
    I've had mild acne for a long time now, where I get red spots a lot but then acid has significantly reduced the frequency of these larger spots. I haven't had a big spot since using this! It does take time so don't expect it to work over 2 weeks, I've been using it for around a month and a bit and I'm now seeing the effect. My skin is also not as oily as before! Recommend for a nice everyday serum to hydrate the skin.
    Just love it.
    Niacinamide and Hyaluronic Acid is the perfect mix for my oil, acne prone skin. Controls my acne and doesn't make my skin more oily. Im now using my 2nd botle and i will definitly continue to bought this product.
    I don't really know
    I've used this for almost 3 months now and I don't really see results. I also began to break out, but I don't know if it's the products' fault, or just due to stress. Also, the packaging gets dirty so easily. Not very pleasant.
    Can’t imagine my routine without it.
    I’ve been using this product for around a month and now I can’t imagine my routine without it. I’’ve always had red pigmented skin with blue undertones under my eyes. A pea size of this on my entire face (yes it a little goes a long way) morning and night before moisturisers, has evened out my skin-tone in a really noticeable way. It dries a little tacky, which doesn’t bother me because your moisturiser solves this problem afterwards. At this price, it’s absolutely worth a go!
    Love this
    You only need a tiny amount of this for each use and it works so well. Bought it because The Ordinary Niacinamide was unavailable but I definitely prefer this one and will continue getting this instead. Wish it came in a larger size though!
    Amazing serum for spot prone skin!
    Wanted to come on here and say ignore all the people who say there’s not enough product or it’s too small! You need only a pea size amount to cover your whole face and I often find I get too generous and I need to spread it on my chest! AND this serum is magic. It has calmed my skin, I don’t really have any random breakouts anymore - just my trusty hormonal one once a month - and I feel it really aids with hydration, my skin is glowing!
    Good little product
    I bought this because I couldn't get hold of The Ordinary Niacinamide, which is what I have used for a long time. It's just as good as The Ordinary one as far as I can tell. The dispenser is a bit of a pain, gets a bit messy, but the product is good, keeps my pores unclogged and skin glowing. I'm happy.
    Only lost niacinamide
    My skin has improved since using this product after applying hyaluronic acid
    Definitely try this one
    I was introduced to Niacinamide after using The Ordinary's product. I found that one a little sticky hence decided to try Inkey! I absolutely love it. I put this on my face and the next morning my skin is so clear! I use this almost every other day now. Its helped with my redness and my pores! Also after reading a lot of reviews on the packaging, I was sceptical to buy, but I faced absolutely no issues. It definitely saves time because there is no dropper and you can squeeze the bottle to get as much product as you want.
    The bottle is leaky .... otherwise product is good
    I love
    I’ve been using it for a week and a half now and I can already tell a huge difference. The 30ML is however really small (did not expect it to be that tiny) but I would definitely recommend!
    Great - with a few issues
    I decided to buy Inkey List's niacinamide after I couldn't source the more popular serum from The Ordinary. I was a little apprehensive at first, with plenty of mixed reviews, but I decided to give it a try. Within the first week, my skin purged heavily on using it around the forehead, which is to be expected. Purging settled after a week! The serum has given an amazing mattifying effect and has reduced lots of blemishes on my skin, within only 2 weeks! My skin took a while to get used to the serum and found it more difficult to absorb at first but that was rectified quickly. It isn't overly drying and my oiliness has been regulated so much. Pores have been reduced greatly too! Honestly, my only problem with this is the bottle and volume of product provided. The bottle is an awful plastic container with a lid that allows for the serum to spill easily over the top of the bottle. Additionally, in comparison to similar products, the volume of serum provided is far less at the same price point.
    Purchased back-ups straight away
    I thought I’d try this after The Ordinary’s Niacinamide sold out... Now I refuse to use any other Niacinamide, and even bought back-ups. This does a great job of brightening my skin and reducing redness caused by breakouts, without being drying. I love using this before my SPF but it’s great for AM or PM use!
    I love it
    Love it helps control my acne
    Love this
    I have dry sensitive skin, so I decided to buy this instead the ordinary one, cause its more moisturizing. My redness is almost gone by now, and my blemishes healed so fast.
    This is my first venture into the world of niacinamide serums, so obviously don’t have much to compare it to, however this feels delicious on the skin. It’s clearly formulated really well and it’s jam packed with ingredients my skin really loves.
    I can't make my mind up about this, I've been using it over a month......it's OK. I don't think I'd buy it again. It leaves a bit of a shiny look to my face (which goes once I add my moisturiser). I think it feels a bit drying so I've started using it every other day.
    Good formulation
    Formulation and feelings after using it are great, but the packaging is terrible. Само средство приятное, легко распределяется по коже, остаётся ощущение липкости. Кожа гладкая и причтная и, определенно, оно действует. Но честно, дальше буду пользоваться ниацинамидом от The Ordinary (он тоже классный, пользовалась до этого) только из-за очень неудобной упаковки.
    A must have for your skincare routine
    I have used Niacinamide in my routine for a number of years and love its versatility regarding the benefits it provides the skin. This like the HA from Inkey has a great texture and absorbs so well on the skin. Other serums I’ve used tend to foam up a little before absorbing into the skin whereas this one doesn’t. I love that it also includes HA and Squalane for added hydration. I've recommended this to so many people who have went out and purchased it and have also loved it. Can't recommend this product and the Inkey List enough I have really come to love the brand, their products and the service and interaction they provide to their customers.
    Product packaging is not secure
    I really love the quality of this brand, the products are good and perform. The packaging is problematic and can become an expense, please do something about it! Each and every single time I receive my orders there are a few products that leaked - this packaging is not secure and causes spillage which rather adds up after a few purchases because it happens every single time. This could also comprise the product quality and longevity / affect expiry as it's NOT sealed. Certainly I'm not the only one experiencing and complaining about this issue? I hope the brand takes note; the packaging is not secure - please consider changing the cap or sealing the bottle below the cap to seal the product in fresh.
    I use it every morning after my hyaluronic acid and before my q10, polyglutamic acid and snow mushroom moisturizer!I adore it!
    Great formulation
    I really appreciate The Inkey List's decision to not include zinc in their niacinamide serum like so many other brands since my dry skin doesn't tolerate it well. I much prefer this version with 1% HA for extra plumping, but also the soybean extract which is a proven brightening ingredient. It's a thicker kind of serum that spreads easily but takes a bit to absorb so you're gonna be left with a tacky finish for a few minutes. Other than that, I wish the brand would use a different dispenser for their serums. These small plastic tubes that you need to squeeze to get the product out are quite annoying.
