This is my second product purchase from The INKEY List! It’s the Niacinamide Serum! Read about my first here.

About The INKEY List Niacinamide Serum:


I’ve used The INKEY List Niacinamide Serum for months. I only have a little bit of product left, so I’m almost done with it. Does that mean I like it? No, not really. I used this serum consistently every day in the morning and night along with my other skin care products. Weeks ago, I’ve eliminated a lot of products due to my skin becoming congested, and I noticed tons of closed comedones. Just a few days ago, I reintroduced this serum back into my skin care routine to see if it’s compatible with my skin or not. The first day (used it in the morning and night), it went well (no breakouts). I didn’t notice a reduction in oil and redness though. I have very oily skin, by the way. The second day, I noticed an increase in acne. Sore whiteheads all over my chin and jawline, the side of my face. BLACKHEADS!! I hardly ever get blackheads! My skin felt and looked more oily too. The serum is supposed to help with excess oil, but it made my skin oily. Hmmm. This is why it is important to do a patch test first. Or, at least introduce skin care products into a routine slowly. Since I know that The INKEY List Niacinamide Serum doesn’t work for me, it’s going out! This serum sucks. I wouldnt recommend it. Didn’t do anything for my acne but gave me MORE acne!!

On to the next serum from Cos De BAHA! It’s the Niacinamide 10 Serum! Here are my thoughts on it after going through several bottles of it too (just like the Vitamin C Serum)!

About Cos De BAHA Niacinamide 10 Serum:


The Niacinamide Serum from Cos De BAHA is thicker in comparison to the Vitamin C Serum (from the same brand). It feels a little sticky when applying to the skin. But, it does absorb into the skin eventually. At the same time, leaving the skin feeling a tad sticky. I personally don’t like that sticky feeling. The reason why I kept on using it is because it makes my skin look brighter, and I haven’t found another niacinamide serum that works on my skin. I tried the one from The Ordinary. That serum was a huge disaster. It gave me closed comedones that damaged my overall complexion. With the cold weather arriving soon, I think I’m going to continue to use Cos De BAHA Niacinamide 10 Serum. It leaves my skin somewhat hydrated. If I find another niacinamide serum that delivers results and doesn’t leave the skin feeling sticky at all, I’ll stop using it. I think this serum is OK. It’s not the best. I just wish it didn’t leave my skin feeling sticky. I want something that fully absorbs and vanishes into the skin. Also, it didn’t clog my pores. Another reason why I kept on using it. Overall, a good skin brightener. It didn’t do much for acne, pores, and wrinkles. It loses a lot of points for making claims when I have not seen it doing much for my acne and pores. Not even wrinkles. It’s one of those skin care products where you like it or you don’t. Honestly, I’m hoping to find something better.
