Morning and evening, apply 2 pumps and press into freshly cleansed skin. Massage until fully absorbed and then follow with Eye Cream and Moisturiser (plus SPF in the morning). For oily or acne prone skin, we suggest Moisture Defence Oily or if you’re after additional barrier repair, we love Expert Restore Niacinamide Replenishing Cream.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is a great ingredient for sensitive, ageing and acne-prone skin. Soothing the skin and reducing redness, it assists with hydration and helps regulate oil flow. When layered together with Retinol, there’s a direct compensation benefit: Retinol stimulates the skin while Niacinamide helps strengthen. Skinstitut Retinol Serum would be a great option here. It’s not a super high concentration, so isn’t going to be irritating. Apply Retinol Serum at night, before 10% Niacinamide Power Serum, so you can maximise the benefits.
If you’re on the sensitive side, Rejuvenate 15 Serum is a great pairing with 10% Niacinamide Power Serum, to further fortify skin and provide additional anti-ageing benefits. The two serums are both lightweight and watery, so you can apply either one first, depending on your primary skin goal.

10% Niacinamide Power Serum is ultra-compatible, so it can be used alongside other actives like Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, AHAs and Retinol. If you use multiple actives or serums in your skincare routine, we recommend using 10% Niacinamide Power Serum towards the end of your routine before moisturising and after other actives, so it doesn’t interfere with absorption.
How does Niacinamide work?
Niacinamide is a powerful ingredient that can be used by all skin types to strengthen, repair, and hydrate the skin. It stimulates ceramide synthesis to boost the level of ceramides within the skin and strengthen its barrier function. This also calms redness and eases irritation while plumping the skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Niacinamide also works to reduce pore appearance and excessive sebum production, leaving skin feeling smooth, soft, and healthy.
Why does the 10% Niacinamide Power Serum contain 10% Niacinamide?
Most serums on the market range from 5% to 20%. This serum contains 10% Niacinamide, which is an ideal percentage to see noticeable improvements without irritation.
Can I use 10% Niacinamide Power Serum if I have sensitive skin?
Yes, Niacinamide is tolerated by most people with sensitive skin. However, as a precaution, we recommend doing a patch test before use.
Can the 10% Vitamin C Super Serum be used on sensitive skin?
Yes, as it contains a gentler form of Vitamin C it may be used on sensitive skin; however, it is recommended to do a patch test first.
Can I use 10% Niacinamide Power Serum if I have acne prone skin?
Yes, this serum’s primary ingredient, Niacinamide, is particularly helpful for acne and acne scarring. It can regulate oil production, soothe inflammation and help reduce the level of acne bacteria by protecting and restoring the skin barrier.
