Marinne (Puppy Skin) 10% Niacinamide + NAG (N-Acetyl Glucosamine) is my current niacinamide serum. I have sensitive skin with rosacea and I react to many topical ingredients. I find that niacinamIde reduces my sensitivities, presumably by improving the barrier function of my skin. As a bonus it makes my pores appear smaller. I use others serums and moisturizers that contain niacinamide on and …Read more

I tried the Minimalistic version of this Niacinamide serum. The texture is like water which makes it very nice for using directly on your face or mixing into other products as a Niacinamide booster. Sadly that’s where the positives end for me. I’m not a fan of the plastic spray bottle. I would prefer a glass dropper bottle that would allow me to dispense a more consistent amount each time. I …Read more

Some will roll their eyes at the idea of spending $80 for 1oz of a relatively simple moisturizer, but for people with skin as sensitive as mine who need to avoid a gazillion ingredients and can't use the minimalist CeraVe, Cetaphil, La Roche Posay and Avene moisturizers of the world for one reason or another, it may be worth it.

Finally! A lightweight, cosmetically elegant, physical sunscreen (4% titanium and 6% zinc) that is actually hydrating on my normal-dry skin! I was previously using Skinceuticals Physical Fusion or Sheer Physical but found them drying. Sheer Physical left a white cast and Physical Fusion was too dark and just off in tone on my NC10-15 skin. They were do-able but I was still looking. Avene …Read more
