    My first niacinamide product! Delivers its results well, didn’t aggravate my fungal acne however the finish was a bit sticky. My pores are more refined and my oily zone seems to be kept at bay 🙂 hyper-pigmentation probably will take sometime to observe.

    Unfortunately for me, this product broke out my face. I also had issues with the product pilling on my skin. I ended up using the rest of the bottle to see if it would help with hyperpigmentation on my back but did not see noticeable results by the time I finished the bottle. As always with skincare, YMMV.
