Facts about The Inkey danh sách Niacinamide Serum

Prize và size

One bottle in the typical The Inkey list packaging contains 30 ml và is available for 8,49 € on the website here. There is nothing exciting about the packaging, I get that, but I lượt thích the sleek design.

Texture và smell

It is a milky-white liquid, a tad gel-like rather than watery & without any noticeable scent. My main issue with it is the tackiness it leaves behind after application. No matter how much or how little you apply, it always feels tacky và stays that way until you apply something on top.It also has a tendency lớn crystallize on the outlet of the serum bottle lớn a trắng crust, which isn’t really an issue, but not aesthetically pleasing.

How does it compare to…

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Now that might be a question of skin type, but I actually prefer the version from The Ordinary, as it just has a nicer texture. The added Zinc makes it more suitable for oily skin types though, it can be a little drying even for my combination skin during winter, so you might be better off with The Inkey Lists version if your skin is more on the dry side.

Even though I will always have a dedicated Niacinamide Serum in my routine (which is a personal choice & certainly not needed for everyone, as Niacinamide is present in many different products and doesn’t need a dedicated step), I won’t repurchase the version from The Inkey List. As my preference, The Ordinary Niacinamide + Zinc, is more drying và better suited for combination-oily skin types, you might prefer khổng lồ buy The Inkey Lists version if your skin leans toward dry.

Niacinamide is especially helpful for those using strong retinoids và wanting khổng lồ minimize irritation while doing so.
