Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well! I’m really pleased I gave this a go. The price is fantastic and does not reflect the product which I’ve found has worked within days of using it. My blemishes have really calmed down and I’ve noticed the redness has faded. It does leave a slight dry film so I would recommend not using before makeup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for combination, blemish prone skin This works really well for my combination, blemish proof skin and is great for calming breakouts. It can be a bit drying if you use too much, but it layers well with all my moisturisers and doesn’t pill. Given the price I don’ think you can go wrong with this - it’s much better for problem skin than a lot of products which cost ten times as much

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not happy I bought this product along with hyaluronic acid. I was looking forward to using it. On the one hand it has improved my skin and worked well on my fine lines. On the other hand, when ever I apply it after double cleansing my face and applying hyaluronic acid, it peels off. I watched videos too see what I was doing wrong. I followed the instructions tho it still peels off. Another thing is, it leaves my skin sticky. So I will be looking for alternatives.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for oily skin I like this serum! It smooths on nicely and absorbs quickly for me - I don't find that it reacts with many moisturisers. I find that it helps with congested skin and maintaining even skin tone. I do find that it's better for maintaining skin rather than curing it but it could just be that way for me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for congested skin I love niacinamide for when my skin is looking particularly congested I definitely feel like it makes a big difference. My only complaint with this serum is that it almost seems to lather if you rub it in, I’ve never had that problem with other serums. To combat this I press it into the skin without rubbing.
