Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots Ingredients Niacinamide Serum. This serum promises to moisturise the skin, to reduce redness, to make the skin look clearer, and to make the skin feel more balanced and less oily.
Simply use this serum as you would use any other serum – after you’ve cleansed your skin and under your regular day or night moisturiser. Also, according to Boots, this product is vegan and cruelty-free!
I’ve been using this water-based serum for a few weeks now, and I think it’s alright but nothing special. The watery formula is nice for the warmer summer months. It feels comfortable on my skin (after an initial 2 minutes of stickiness). Well, it feels comfortable most of the time. I had a small cut on my face, and of all the products that I’ve used during this time, this serum was the only product that stung around the area of the cut. I have to deduct imaginary points for that.
I’m fairly happy with the level of hydration I get from this serum. Well, water and glycerin are the first 2 ingredients listed on the bottle, so that explains it. And I found that this serum also plays well with my other skin care products. However, I’m not convinced that it does much more. In comparison to the last serum I used (Olay), this Boots serum doesn’t give me an immediate smoother look and silkier feel.
I will finish this serum, but I wouldn’t buy it again. If you’re interested, Boots Ingredients Niacinamide Serum is available as 30ml for £4. I bought this serum when Boots ran a 3 for 2 promotion across their Ingredients and Vitamin C ranges.
