Wrinkle and Pore-Blurring Serum
This serum contains a peptide sequence to help with cell renewal, therefore producing more collagen, and finally reducing the signs of aging. While I don’t know for sure if this has any long-term benefits, I do feel this has some great immediate effects. This is targeted more towards “mature” skin. In saying that, I don’t have wrinkles (& my skin type in mostly normal), but I DO have noticeable pores so anything to help give the illusion that they’re smaller than what they are is going on my “to try” list.

Can’t wait to be reunited with this one...
I love this retinol serum! It never caused me any irritation. It makes my skin so plump and clears my clogged pores and blackheads. For the last two years my retinol and I have been apart because of pregnancy and breastfeeding and oh boy I can’t wait to have this back in my face. Retinol use topically during pregnancy has been linked to miscarriages and birth defects. It can effect the development of the babies ears, palate, heart, eyes and many other scary things. This has usually been caused by taking oral retinol which is much stronger than topical but it’s really not worth the risk. Breastfeeding still holds a much lower risk but since babies are still developing rapidly I would rather just wait. Also, my skin was amazing during pregnancy, it’s afterwards when I started losing weight, and not sleeping well that my wrinkles returned and I couldn’t seem to avoid the dry dull skin blues. But back to this dream serum. Formulated with squalene, jojoba and rosemary oil, this serum injects moisture while reducing signs of aging to keep irritation away. It also uses a granactive retinoids, which basically is a more advanced less irritating version of a traditional retinol. Water, paraben, silicon, gluten, sulfate, alcohol and cruelty free it is 💗😻🥳 and I can’t wait to be with it again! #cheriecreator #mom #momlife The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane

My First The Ordinary Product
$5.9 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% This is a water base serum which you can use in the morning as well as evening and also on a daily base. It is designed to be the great solution for oiliness and pores. I got this recommendation from my bff who has been suffering from acnes and dark spots for years. I can actually see her skin condition is getting better in the past two years. She is a big fan of ingredients after came to Canada. Honestly I have never heard of this brand before and hesitated of trying because of the pricing. After reading a lot of reviews online and visually see the changes on her I decided to give it a try. I first tried it 1 year ago when I had just suffered from 2 year terrible acne outbreak. One thing I really love about this brand is that it is vegan and cruelty-free. The ingredients are very pure with no alcohol silicone or fragrances. At first, I didn't use it very often. I started to use it more often when I ran out of my lancome night serum. After using the whole bottle, my skin was cleared. I still have a few acnes cus i know its more about my routine and lifestyle. But from the outside, my skin does get brighter. I’m really happy with the result at this point. Definitely recomand. The steps I’ve using in my skincare routine is that I would do a deep cleaning first. After that I would use a toner. Then go with this Niacinamide and then use a moisturizer on top. If you are a dry combination like me who love to play around with makeup and mostly wear makeup on a daily basis, make sure you do moisturize you skin along with this serum before putting makeup on. Another thing I want to point out is that if you have the same skin type like me, be aware that it can feel a bit drying. So I definitely recomand using eye cream especially under eye areas to prevent fine lines. All in all it is a great product and helps a lot with my acne. Beauty lovers should be clear about their skin type and how to use this product before making the purchase.

Niacinamide has also been shown to offer brightening benefits. “ PROS: Affordable controls oil Minimize Pores Brightens and evens out skin complexion Reduce the signs of congestion and visible sebum activity CONS: Dries out fast which makes it a bit difficult to spread MY EXPERIENCE After one week of using this product I’ve seen a huge difference on skin. It cleared my skin and my pores became smaller.

Niacinamide & Buffet
The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I have a friend who is very into the ingredients that come in make up. I on the other hand have never really paid too much attention on the ingredients and mainly went with what was popular or what my friends would recommend to me. One day, my friend recommended me to try products with the ingredient, Niacinamide, in it, because I was in the market for a product that could make my skin appear more white and this ingredient does the trick. After some research, I stumbled across The Ordinary’s Niacinamide 10% and Zinc 1%. I gave it a try and it has truly worked wonders for me. Out of curiosity, I looked up Niacinamide and according to multiple sources, the benefit of this ingredient is that it helps reduce blemishes on the skin and any signs of congestion. It also brightens skin tone. The Ordinary - ''Buffet'' Another product I tried that had an ingredient that worked great to keep my skin hydrated was The Ordinary’s Buffet. This product had hyaluronic acid in it which helps support hydration. This has really opened my eyes on how important it is to know and understand the ingredients in the products you buy. Not only could it give you a sense of how the product would work, it can also help you find and discover new products that you probably wouldn’t have stumbled across on your own. By searching for a certain ingredient, you will be able to see which products have that ingredient, and you can make a much more educated choice when it comes to deciding on which product to use.
Talking new VitaminC!
I’ll start off by saying Vitamin C and my skin just do not get along. When I received this new serum from Ole Henriksen for testing purposes I was excited to see if this might finally be the one that works for my skin due to the addition of PHAs in the serum. I love the lightweight texture of the serum and the fresh citrus scent. It does apply a bit tacky but dries down quickly. Unfortunately it caused me to breakout with a ton of whiteheads just like every other vitc I’ve tried. I used for 6 days and honestly did notice some brightening in that time, but decided to stop using due to the breakouts. They claim that you should see brightening effects in 7 days and if you were someone who reacts well to vitamin C I honestly think you’d really love this product. So sad it didn’t work for me! 😭 OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum

HG niacinamide serum
This niacinamide 10% and zinc 1% serum is an antioxidant serum that is supposed to help maintain your skin barrier, minimize the appearance of pores, brighten the skin, and reduce inflammation. It’s a thicker consistency for a serum, and can leave a bit of a tacky finish, but it’s super cheap ($6). I’m fine with the formulation not being super fast absorbing because of the price and the results. Totally worth it. I’ve used this for over a year and have definitely noticed that my pores appear smaller. It also has helped to fade newer scars, although older more stubborn hyperpigmentation didn’t fade. I would recommend this for everyone. It’s one of those serums that anyone and everyone could benefit from. Get’s a 5/5 from me! The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
