I have a new skin care product. I’ve read so many good reviews on The Ordinary Nicinamide 10% Zinc 1% Serum. I’m currently using Cos De BAHA Niacinamide 10% Serum. It’s been 1 month. I’ve always wanted to try The Ordinary’s. My current Niacinamide did a good job at moisturizing, but it did nothing for my oily skin. Here’s more about this product:

I started using The Ordinary Nicinamide 10% Zinc 1% Serum this morning. As I was dispensing the serum into my palm, I noticed that it looks sticky. Once I applied it to my skin, it absorbed quickly and didn’t leave a sticky feeling behind. I will include this serum with my other serums. I just hope that it doesn’t clog my pores overtime, irritate my skin, or give me a bad breakout. We will see. I don’t want the same thing to happen again (Lily Ana Naturals Vitamin C Serum). It’s a risk to take. Let’s do it and hope for the best!

Have you used The Ordinary Nicinamide 10% Zinc 1% Serum before? Share your thoughts.

Update: Differin + BP

So I started to use BP with Differin Gel. I just had to report my experience. WOW. My skin is literally on fire! It’s also peeling (due to the BP, not Differin). I started off using BP only a few times at night. The first application went well. With the second application, my face was burning! I knew at that point that I had to stop using exfoliants. I decided to only use Differin and BP and only at night. I’ve only used BP 3 times. I’m already seeing results! I’m so happy! I’ll give it at least 2 weeks and see what happens. Here’s a recap on what I’m going to do.

  1. No exfoliants or when my skin can tolerate it
  2. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
  3. Differin and BP at night. Yes, you can use both at the same time. Only with Differin. I do let Differin soak into my skin first before applying BP.

I’ll make an update when I hit 2 months on Differin. Again, I’m seeing improvements overnight! More on my Differin experience here:
