Didn't observe much difference with this :/
2020-08-31 - Michelle W
Skin has improved after using this!
2019-01-20 - Shawnruting
First time using The ordinary brand. The experience is amazing. Suitable for my acne prone skin. This prevent me for future break out. Recommended. I will purchase again.
2019-03-17 - Zin Mon
First purchase. Always wanted to try this brand and after watching a ton of YouTube videos, I finally decided to get this. Serum absorbs easily and doesn’t leave a tacky feel.
2018-12-30 - Samantha Chua
Skin texture improved and does help to lighten skin tone, acne scars faded and my face don't look so dull anymore. Definitely will repurchase.
2019-01-16 - Michelle Tan
Good to treat acne spot :)
2019-01-24 - Maria Vianney
Not much difference though
2020-03-05 - Jie Xin
holy grail for acne scars
2020-07-20 - Jj
I don't see much difference
2019-06-13 - Whipcreamsoda
Nothing bad to say about this product but no effect even after 3 weeks. Likely will not repurchase.
2019-05-15 - Ouyuan
I don't see much difference after using this product :( Results are slightly disappointing.
2019-03-31 - Evelyn
Very light weight and absorbs very well into the skin. No sticky feeling. Works very well to control oil. I like it.
2019-06-16 - Yyin
This product is lovely! I love the consistency and I really feel like it makes me less oily. Not too sure if it does anything for pore size though! Still worth trying it out since it is so affordable.
2019-05-15 - Koh Jia Min Amanda
2020-03-22 - Melissa Han Huimin
Really does helps in smoothing your skin, my face has lesser bumps now. Doesn't help in controlling sebum though. Thick serum but not tacky, absorbs pretty fast.
2019-05-30 - Jialin
My friend introduced this product to me. She has an oily, blemish-prone skin for all the years I've known her for, nowadays I notice that her skin is clear and acne-free! I couldn't wait to get my hands on this! And yes, since I started using this religiously for a couple weeks, I don't get any pimples and my skin is now glowing. My T-zone doesn't get as oily at the end of the day like before. I will totally repurchase this.
2019-08-05 - Tory
Absorbs well, no strong smell (a bit medicinal if you get what i mean) or fragrance. I think it is a great supplement for skin brightening. Honestly though , ive used it only sporadically hence i cant tell is my acne marks fading was due to my combination of actives or this. Hence the three stars.
2019-09-14 - Liam
Place a drop on whiteheads/pimple areas every night for quick resolution of acne in a week.
2019-06-12 - Cheryl
This is a repurchase as I have noticed that it helped with cleaning my pores and reducing blemishes. Highly recommend!
2019-07-31 - Genevieve Teo
i see improvement in my skin texture and fewer pimples appearing after consistent usage every night. during the first few times of usage my skin was tingling and became red as it might have been too strong but after a week it was not as irritating. on to my 3rd bottle now
2019-06-09 - Lim Kj
This has really helped me to brighten my skin which was dull , I have been using this product for few weeks now and can see the difference.
2019-07-22 - Anuradha
Have been a prolonged user of niacinamide and previously used the Nacific's. Tried The Ordinary's Niacinamide serum and found that it is very drying. The packaging instruction did say to follow with a heavy cream, so this is expected. This does work well for redness and acne skin but do note it may dry your skin which is not ideal in Singapore.
2019-07-13 - Nat J
Highly recommend this product. My skin was visibly clearer and brighter in just 2-3 days of using it.
2019-08-30 - Jolin Ng
Can't live without this! Already on my 3rd bottle, and the 4th bottle is on the way! Great for oil control which I really really need
2019-07-01 - Nguyen Mai Trang
Used it for 2 months yet no improvement whatsoever to my skin condition. Did not control my acne or fade any scars. Would not purchase again.
2019-08-25 - Shanyl Liew
This is already very effective on its own but coupling it with salicylic acid boosts its sebum-controlling and acne-fighting properties. It doesn't smell weird, has a thick consistency - similar to the salicylic acid and is mild so it doesn't sting or burn or cause my skin to peel. It really does what it promises - my t-zone is no longer oily thanks to this product!
2019-07-08 - Moon
I have been using this product for quite sometime. It helps to balance my skin & reduce oiliness.
2019-07-22 - Cindjo
repeated purchase, good and affordable serum
2019-07-19 - Hoang Hallie
reduces my pores, amazing
2019-12-08 - Monica
Observable oil control with continued use!
2019-08-08 - Theresa Chong
I moved from canada to sg and my face hasn't been reacting well with the changes of environment. I started to get oily and congested in my T-Zone area and there were couple of times I was breaking out. I was researching so much that I stumbled upon this well critiqued product. And girl let me tell you, the rave is truly real. I can't really describe how thankful I am to discover this product. This product helped me in balancing my sebum production. Moreover, after having my facial, the aesthetician extracted my milia seeds and it left my face pretty much red and hurt because of the harsh removal of milia seeds. And I used about 3 drops of Niacinamide product on my skin every night and it helped my skin cell renewal turn over rate. The results were pretty dramatic in each night I used the niacinmaide after my facial. It was pretty much a life saver. Like honestly, if you've got oily, blackheads, large pore problem. Do the recommended routine by the ordinary salicylic acid, niacinamide and their hylaronic acid moisturizer and it really saves you for such an affordable price.
2019-07-26 - Jaymie
used for one week, no visible result yet
2019-09-05 - Riiko
2019-09-28 - Priscilla Chan
It gives me a stingy reaction when I used it. Maybe not suitable for me...
2019-12-04 - Michelle
didn’t help brighten my acne scars
2019-09-13 - Sean
This product is definitely not for everyone. I know people who have had brilliant results with this but this serum broke me out like crazy on my cheeks and jawline, leaving whiteheads and blackheads everywhere. It's been two weeks since I stopped using this and I'm still trying to get rid of the acne left behind. Definitely patch test first.
2019-10-04 - Lucas Wong
Used together with some other acne products. Unsure if my skin cleared up because of this or the other products... but this definitely helped my skin to become more supple!
2019-10-05 - Sarah Chin
Buy due to great reviews but can't find much effect on my skin even though I already used it for two months.
2019-10-07 - Zero
Not noticed any effect on pores as yet or too much of a significant change . Will continue to use to check Long term effect
2019-10-08 - Arifa Khan
What an amazing product, it does reduce the bumps on my skin , making it look so polished and smoothen out!
2019-10-18 - Frisha
It helps to reduce the oil on my face! Very effective
2019-10-24 - Loh
Consistency is slightly sticky and it has a pretty weird smell but apart from these, the product does what it promises to and I notice my skin becoming clearer the next day when I use it at night. Recommended for purchase!
2019-10-29 - Amellia Gan
Really helps with scars, will repurchase!
2019-11-13 - Jan
This is great, my pore size looks smaller. I apply this once at night every other day. There's a bit of stinging effect if you're new to niacinamide, but if you get used it after a few uses.
2020-03-09 - Hannah Lim
Clears up my skin. Not as harsh as vitamin c (Ascorbic acids range)
2019-11-24 - Clare Lee
Quite moisturising and has a thin gel like consistency. It absorbs quickly and is suitable for dry skin.
2019-11-27 - Cristal Crt
This is really great in helping to brighten my skin and reduce pigmentation. You probably won't be able to see the results so soon, but after 4 to 6 weeks, my complexion really improved so much. I really love how effective this is and its so super affordable I can just use it generously everyday.
2019-12-02 - Claire
I noticed a difference after a few days of using at night. The small blemishes on my forehead and chin area disappeared. As soon as i stopped using, they all started popping out again so im stocking up on this one.
2019-12-15 - Johanna
One of the best products I’ve ever purchased as part of my skincare regimen. Best to leave on to fully absorb to skin. I use this after toner and before my make up. And at night after cleansing and toning. Be patient with results!
2020-01-24 - Shan Gomes
2020-03-07 - Vigneshwaree Sabapathy
Read many good reviews on this product and decided to give it a try. Initially I used it every night with some brightening effect but noticed small little bumps appearing on my face. This product may be too rich for my face so I've decided to tone it down a little, adding a minimal amount to my routine perhaps once in a few weeks. Given the good reviews by youtubers and bloggers alike, may be worth a try since it is rather affordable.
2020-02-25 - Sophia Choo Hui Jia
amazing. my skin really became brighter and acne scar did fade. I also feel that my skin dont get as much pimples anymore I usually use 3 drops.
2020-05-11 - Emily
Been using this for about a month now. I haven't seen my freckles lightening, but scars and marks are lighter now. this works!
2020-03-27 - Sammi Sim
Excellent product! No breakouts, helps hydrate and brighten.
2020-07-28 - Sim Pei Yun
really helps to counter the oil from my skin! bought the bigger one recently.
2020-03-24 - Joshua Chua
leaves a sticky residue on the face, would highly recommend to mix it with a moisturiser before applying it to the face
2020-04-09 - Fitri Jasman
Still waiting for it to have an effect but no bad reactions to it
2020-04-21 - May
This seriously helped my skin by reducing bumps and minimising pimples over 2 weeks of continuous use! My skin texture is also noticeably more smooth and even :) Highly recommended, just bought another bottle!
2020-04-18 - Aisyah Rahman
It does control oil without stinging your face so I feel like my skin does not look oily all the time. I only do it once a day instead of twice. I need to buy the second bottle to see if it does prevent breakouts.
2020-04-18 - Shi Yah
Purchased another bottle, have finished two. Noticed that it helps to calm pimples, face isn't as oily as before. It also visibly faded hyperpigmentation from acne although not completely. Expected it to visibly minimise pores as mentioned on the box but it didn't do so for me. Still a great product!
2020-04-22 - Gwyneth
Can't really see much of a difference on initial use, but skin does seems brighter after about a weeks use. Also don't use too much of this or it would turn your skin red. Would recommend applying with a cotton bud.
2020-04-25 - Joshua Tang
Broke me out and not really seeing a difference
2020-07-08 - Tham Shirmaine
Been using it daily for the past few months and it's helped with controlling oil production. Also, I've noticed that the texture of my skin has been smoother overall. Will be purchasing again!
2020-04-30 - Nazhiifah
Just started using this and product is good so far. Going to keep using this and hopefully im able to see some changes in my skin.
2020-05-05 - Shahira Razak
This product worked well for my skin, saw results in two weeks. It did cause my skin to purge when I first started using it but since we are in CB now it's ok for me. If planning to use with other new products make sure to introduce into skincare regimen one by one slowly.
2020-05-15 - Bernice Seet
Has gel like consistency. Love it
2020-05-16 - Grace Liew
Not sure if I am using this correctly but I apply this after the toner step. It feels sticky, does helps to maintain oil on skin but it leaves those "peeling residue" after long hours outside. EDIT: Used this when I had eczema flare-ups on my face + stubborn acne scars. I see that my skin is brighter and it calmed my eczema! I know it sounds weird but woah
2020-05-16 - Caroline
Product is perfect for my skin!
2020-07-02 - Titus
This really helps to minimize the appearance of pores even just after two weeks of using it. The texture is a little tacky but it’s easy to get used to.
2020-05-25 - Kelia Lim
i use this in the mornings. smooth & easy application, no harsh sensations on skin
2020-05-26 - Jocelyn T
it did cause a bit of purging for 2-3 weeks, but now my skin is much clearer! it's great for reducing oil, works well with my combo skin (previously, my T zone would be quite shiny by mid day but now it's much less oily at the end of the day!) however, the texture becomes a bit foamy when i rub it on my face, maybe a patting motion might be better rather than rubbing it in! still a serum worth trying because of the affordable price :)
2020-05-27 - Sherilyn Leong
I used the product for more than a week now and it really does reduce my hyperpigmentation!! For me, when you first apply it, it feels kind of tingly on your skin but it's honestly quite bearable! Just make sure to not apply too much! (I personally find 2 drops to be more than adequate.) + do remember to check your other products for niacinamide as well in order to prevent layering too much of the same ingredient, just in case!
2020-06-10 - Madeline
I can see slight differences on the amount of whiteheads that i get now after using this product. Pores less visible. Only thing is it is piling so not suitable if you wear it under makeup. Maybe can try applying on damp face or apply just small amount.
2020-06-07 - Sandya
Face feels a lot less oily after a week of using this.
2020-08-22 - Mel
I applied it after I washed my face. It absorbed well on my skin and so far never cause any irritation. I used it for about 2 weeks time so far, I notice my skin pores became a bit smaller than before and no new break-out. I will continue to use and re-order it again.
2020-06-12 - Joyce Ji
I have dry & oily skin. Using this has helped control the oil production throughout the day. I apply by dropping 2 drops on my fingers & pressing it into my skin then let it be absorbed. This way I’m not noticing any white residue where I see in some comments. I’m loving it & hopes it restocks often!
2020-06-14 - Koh Siew Hoon
This product changed my skin and for its price this is worth the money! I have lesser breakouts than before and this product does not feel sticky or thick when applied.
2020-06-20 - Jewel Yal
Great product! I’m onto my third bottle. Had a bad case of acne. Used this and salicylic acid from the same brand. Daily use helps to prevent acne.
2020-08-16 - Safina Aj
Very watery texture. Helps control oil production throughout the day.
2020-07-09 - Ashley
For me, I think I have a bad reaction to niacinamide hence it did not work on my skin. I had stinging when i applied it and I felt uncomfortable so i decided to cease using this product.
2020-07-16 - Syaza Nazifa
First purchase and I am absolutely loving this product! It absorbs very quickly and it does soothe my skin a lot. Highly recommended!
2020-09-09 - M.C
I use this for spot treatment but it tends to react with other products a little weirdly (tiny balls of something when rubbed too much). *Edit: this product is notorious for pilling (tiny balls issue) and takes a bit of experimenting to figure out how much to put or which step in skin care routine to apply this, but it does reduce the occurrences of breakouts!
2020-07-06 - Jen
the products works well! ive seen a noticeable difference in my pores, and it has reduced my whiteheads.
2020-09-27 - Ielya
Can feel some peeling of the skin which is good. This not stinging at all as I have extremely sensitive skin.
2020-07-30 - Pauline Lee
The pores on my nose does not feel as big as before, after a week of using this product. Highly recommend !!
2020-07-22 - Nur Aisyah
Cleared up my skin really well! Used to have little blemishes around the chin and this gets rid of it! Can be used for spot treatment and is compatible with almost everything. A little goes a long way
2020-07-20 - Aaron Leong
this product is very gooey like a serum. i really like it and my face has been getting better and it helps with my pimples and redness too.
2020-07-21 - Charis Cher
Worth the purchase as I can see a difference and improvement in my skin.
2020-07-22 - Kylie Arellano
Use it for a week now, it do brighten up my skin a little. This serum is really light n easy to absorb within few sec. will cont purchase n recommend to frens
2020-07-24 - Anne
I have oily skin and I tend to have an acne breakout often. After using this product for 5 days (evening only), I feel that my skin tightens and this really help in reducing the pore size. A plus point of this product was that it came filled to the brim. :)
2020-07-24 - Jillyn Woo Wanyi
Could not see much effect but I think some of my marks did lighten after a month of application, but there was still some breakouts (not sure if it’s because of the product or other factors)
2020-07-25 - Lecia Lim
It’s been helping with my acne n scars!
2020-07-27 - Tharini
1 week of using it, not much improve so far but it does control the oilyness.
2020-08-14 - Jacky Ling Kwan Wei
Great product, absorbs quickly and easily into the skin. Has helped to control oil production and definitely had fewer breakouts since I started using it :)
2020-08-03 - Jia Ming
I really see an improvement on my sebum production.
2020-08-09 - Ng Shi Rong Samuel
(one week review) I feel that my face doesn't get oily as quickly as usual.
2020-08-10 - Ong Hong Tessa
Used this serum daily as part of my AM routine. So far it helps with oil control after about a month's usage. Scars and marks have lightened too but are still quite visible. Has a sour smell to it but tolerable! I think it's also how the product's supposed to smell?
2020-08-11 - Alma
Wanted to try it out after my fav skincare youtuber (Hyram) recommended it. Been using it for 2ish+ and so far I quite like it! Not a dramatic difference but it does help the texture of my skin I feel like its become more smoother than before. It's not a sure fire solution for acne and pimples, but in my opinion it really helps for overall skin texture and pores. Also, I did break out a bit during the first few times of usage (maybe abt a weekish?) but after that it was all good. Will continue using it and maybe check back in after more months have passed :)
2020-08-12 - Marcy Marasigan
perfect, i have used it together with the buffet and my skin is transformed in 2 weeks, not sure which is doing the job, but it works, thats all it matters
2020-08-20 - Chia Yi Qian
I use it everyday, morning and night, for the past few months..coming to the last few drops of my bottle, definitely repurchasing. I could see my acne scars/blemishes slowly fading over the few months that I’ve used it. Absorbs well into the skin, barely leaving a tacky feeling.
2020-08-29 - Liyana Amin
mask acne scars were visibly reduced in just 3 days !
2020-08-30 - Jia Wen
Visible results at reducing the appearance of pores! Will order this again
2020-09-08 - Ng Yi Shan
Love it. Light weight and helps control sebum. Goes nicely under makeup too.
2020-01-03 - Yyin
Love this product to bits as it really does what it claims! Feels that my skin secrete lesser oil upon using this. It also makes my skin looking dewy and radiant too.
2020-03-25 - Rachel Tang Shao Yi
Helped with my pores, minimized oilyness on my face
2020-04-15 - Sy
I have acne marks and this coupled with hyaluronic acid has cleared most of the pigmentation, will repurchase!
2020-03-24 - Annabel Pang
reduced my acne breakouts!
2020-04-24 - Monica
I bought the 60ml which more worth it. It is really used for long term care than a quick fix but I can feel my skin not as oily as before.
2020-04-19 - Shi Yah
Fast delivery . Product is used on acne skin & it works well .
2020-06-25 - Irenequek
My Niacinamide + Zinc had a slight leakage and thus have lesser than the 60 ml it was supposed to be (compare it to my hyaluronic acid) but this was unforeseen on seller’s part so it’s okay. Other than that delivery was fast, products came on the 3rd day after I ordered. Hope it works for my skin.
2020-05-13 - Rachel Chan
Affordable product that works wonders. Really love the texture of this, its almost gel-like. Thank you hush.sg for supplying authentic 'The Ordinary' products in Singapore! :)
2020-05-19 - Kristina
Use it almost every night. Mild and has no side effect on my face.
2020-06-03 - Su Sandy Htun
After using this for a few weeks, I have noticed that my forehead doesn't get as oily as it did before. Used this with the Hyaluronic Acid and the dry areas around my nose also don't feel as dry and tight as it used to. Would recommend this!
2020-06-07 - Jolyn Lim
My all time favourite. It incorporates well in my daily skincare routine. Even though it takes a few months to see the effect, it really is a product that you can use long term which helps to restore skin balance and reduce size of pore.
2020-06-08 - Claire
Worked well to heal scars, but progress hasn't been steady.
2020-08-11 - Noah Kong
Have a sticky residue but gone after it is absorbed into skin.
2020-06-18 - Hui Shi Gan
Product is perfect for my skin!
2020-08-20 - Titus
I love, love, love this product it really does the trick to brighten your skin and lighten dark spots. Even my mom and friends noticed the difference when I use it. As I do get heaps of sebum after work or in general and I does reduce sebum production for me as I seem less shiny after a long day and less prone to break outs (great beginner serums for teens)
2020-07-02 - Leonard Cher
Great product for pimples outbreak... Definitely will buy again!
2020-09-25 - Irene Woo
Can see that my pores are slightly smaller and my face is not as oily throughout the day
2020-09-23 - Samantha
It is a light liquid which I use in the AM. It does not pile. Fantastic!
2020-07-13 - Jona
Currently on my second 60ml sized bottle, which lasted me slightly longer than 3 months when used nightly. Everything that can be said about this has already been said, just get a bottle (or two, or three LOL) if you haven't already!
2020-09-05 - Magdalene Teo
The product absorb to my skin very fast. I only used it for a week now and haven't seen any changes to my acne or dark spot so far but will continue to use. Only one think I dislike about the product is every time I apply sunscreen in the morning after the product, it will create some kind of small white flakes on the skin (I tried 2 different sunscreens and the result are still the same).
2020-07-15 - Ashley
Skin texture is smoother but not much improvements for my pores. Does not help so much with acne prevention.
2020-07-15 - Juana
Have been using this for around two months and I definitely helps with fading of acne scars
2020-07-25 - Grace Liew
Used for at least a month now, tried it after hearing Hyram rave about it. Product absorbs well and works better when you tap it into the skin. It gives a glow after using, and does help with reducing oil on my skin. Complexion looks brighter. Also noticed that my fine lines have reduced slightly. So far, not sure if it has helped with fading my scars, maybe have to see after a few months. My skin didn't purge upon trying this too.
2020-07-27 - Priya
this is my second purchase, and this time i bought the 60ml instead of the 30ml. bought 2 bottles, use it twice a day. this alone speaks to the efficacy of the product.
2020-08-20 - Jocelyn T
my 2nd bottle. It works great on my skin and make the skin tune looks bright and even. The pore seems tighten than before. I used it day and night. Day time combine with whitening product and evening, use it will Retionl. Will continue to order .
2020-08-23 - Joyce Ji
Used this product and I could really feel the difference! My pores appear smaller, my skin is less red and sensitive. More importantly, my skin is definitely not as oily as before. I’ve been using this for about 2 months now.
2020-08-27 - Jeslyn Tung
after finished one bottle of 30ml, my skin become 2 tone brighter. so then decided to take 60ml
2020-09-01 - Yi Xuan
This product is a must in my skin care routine. Does even out my skin tone and my face is much smoother after application. Highly recommended.
2020-09-02 - Hidaya
[Skin type] My skin type used to be incredibly oily and while I didn't suffer from acne, I definitely had regular monthly pimples. I'm currently expecting and the change in hormones has made my skin quite dry and having residual large pores and scars on my cheeks. Poor sleep has also resulted in really dull skin. [Use/Feel] I started using this serum about 2 weeks ago and have noticed a significant change. I use it once to twice a day, about 3-4 drops each time. It dries to a tacky finish which lasts about 5mins (if I'm lazy I don't wait for it to dry before going in with a moisturiser). There's a slight tingle, which doesn't bother me as I don't have particularly sensitive skin (and also am used to using acids in my skincare). I have not changed any other products in my skin care routine, apart from being quite strict with sunscreen these two weeks. [Changes Noticed] The main changes are- smaller pores, overall reduced blotchiness and a general glow/brightness to the skin. Haven't noticed any decrease in pigmentation, but I didn't expect to after only 2 weeks. I particularly loved it when I used an AHA/BHA serum (I apply it once a week) and they really work synergistically to make the skin look absolutely glowing.
2020-09-07 - Rachel Lee
Doesn't dry out my skin at all! Totally cleared my maskne overnight and is making great progress on my other blemishes. Works as a spot treatment or as a layer all over my skin under my moisturiser.
2020-09-09 - Deepika
Water based, doesn't leave an oily feeling. Keeps skin moisturized the whole day.
2020-09-14 - Yoann
I use this only in the night as using it twice daily makes my rosacea flare up. There's the tingly sensation when I use it but that is because my skin is always injured due to compromised barrier. The sensation goes away pretty fast. The result is a drier but an overall clearer skin. Just apply more hydrating layers if you have dry skin like me.
2020-09-16 - Crystal Ng
Super love this Niacinamide! Great for oily and acne prone skin. It’s been almost a week using this, I can see the difference to my skin. Definitely will repurchase once finish.
2020-09-25 - Nurul Mustafa
