What is this?: A lightweight 10% Niacinamide serum meant to even one’s skin tone and reduce the appearance of pores.
Good for: Oily / textured / dehydrated skin
Directions: ”Apply a few drops to your skin in the morning and at night before oils, moisturisers, and creams. Suitable for daily use.”
How I use it: I use this in the PM everyday. I actually mix it with the Inkey List Collagen Booster. However this is Extremely hard to suck up this product with the pipette, so I actually have to turn this up and down and shake it to get the product out – VERY ANNOYING.
Packaging: A glass bottle with a glass dropper.
Texture: Although the packaging is annoying, I love the juice inside! Very lightweight, dries instantly. Hydrates the skin, spreadable and layerable!
Key Ingredients: Niacinamide 10% (Vitamin B3). Niacinamide reduces the look of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, texture and dullness. Also helps strengthen the skin’s barrier to reduce moisture loss.
Full Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Niacinamide, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, Betaine, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Sorbitan Isostearate, Polysorbate 60, Diphenyl Dimethicone, Disodium EDTA, Triethylhexanoin, Polyglyceryl-10 Oleate, Hydrogenated Lecithin
I like the addition of Glycerin (hydrate the skin). Not worried about the dimethicone if it helps keep the texture of this light without balling up under makeup. Nice to see Niacinamide up at the top.
Skincharisma have an ingredient breakdown HERE
Good under makeup?: Yes! Seems to be fine and not ball up.
How long have I been using this?: About a month. I will use this until completion (which is soon)
The Effect?: immediately – the skin is hydrated. Long-term, we know niacinamide does help with pores so I believe this has helped.

What I like:
- No fragrance!
- Easily dries down
- Fine under makeup
- Niacinamide does help my pores etc
What I don’t like:
- Packaging – difficult to suck up/ get the product out (so I have to turn the bottle upside down and whack it to get the product out). This is my biggest issue. The packaging is so uncomfortable to use that it really brings down the whole product which is a shame because I like the juice inside! but it takes so long to get this product out.
Overall Rating and Conclusion: 3/5 – Like the product! Can’t stand the packaging – it’s too difficult! I also get a lot of this product collecting and ‘hardening’ at the tip of the bottle (because I have to tip the product out and it spills a bit and then dries down and hardens). I think Good Molecules should turn this into a pump bottle or improve the dispenser.
Would I purchase?: I like the juice inside a lot. But not the packaging. I think I would prefer to purchase the Niacinamide toner because I prefer the packaging, it’s easier to dispense product AND that contains Arbutin and Vitamin C – so it’s got some extra skin beneficial ingredients mixed in.
