I'm in love with this serum! No scent, great size, the quality is amazing it really improved and brightened my skin. I use it morning and night and noticed a difference after two weeks. There's definitely less blemishes and redness. Pores seems to be smaller. My skin is combination to oily and very sensitive
Cos De Baha is a great brand, with quality products that can really benefit the skin. The package was intact, no damage. Niacinamide is great for under the eyes and also to reduce oil. The composition is clear and there is no scent, the size of the bottle is kind of small but should last a while. After several months of use it did even out the texture and tone of my skin, and I always apply a moisturizer after. be sure to use sunscreen when using acids.
The potent combination of 20% niacinamide and zinc PCA has worked wonders for my skin. Since using it, I've noticed a reduction in the appearance of blemishes and improved overall skin texture. I appreciate that it's fragrance-free and suitable for sensitive skin. Cos De BAHA consistently delivers high-quality skincare products, and their NZ Niacinamide 20 Zinc PCA is no exception. If you're looking to improve your skin's health
I was using the Cos De Baha 10% Niacinamide Serum which I love especially because of the additional skin-benefiting ingredients in the formula, however that has not been available for restocking so I replace it with this one which has similar other good ingredients rather than fillers...although 20% is quite high for Niacinamide so I'll be mixing it with my other serum whenever I'm applying it to my face
Compared to The Ordinary Niacinamide Serum, I very much prefer Cos De Baha version. The main ingredients in this serum is aloe leaf extract (very hydrating) instead of water like in The Ordinary serum. Both serum has zinc pca (reducing redness and breakouts). Cos De Baha serum has additional beneficial ingredients such as sodium hyaluronate (humectant), allantoin (skin-softening, promote wound healing), licorice (soothing, anti-inflammatory, sebum regulating). You won't find this in The Ordinary version. The prices for both serum are comparable but we get a more comprehensive formulations with Cos De Baha. I pair this up with the BHA 2% salicylic serum and they work wonders for pore tightening. Our pore size cannot shrink but with the help of salicylic acid (deep clean excess oil out of pores) and niacinamide (tighten pores), pores may return to their normal size. I tried both the 10% and 20% niacinamide and i find 20% is more powerful for my oily-large pore skin. The 20% version does not irritate my skin. However, for normal to dry skin people, 10% may be sufficient. If you have oily skin or skin with enlarged pores, you must include NIACINAMIDE 20% in your skincare regime 👍
I try to give products at least 3 weeks of use before reviewing them, but this gave such quick results I think it's fair to review after 1 week. It brightened my post blemish marks and entire complexion noticably. My skin tone is already more even. I use it at night only, under a retinol moisturizer that I started 2 weeks ago. So that might be contributing, however the improvement really kicked into high gear within days of adding this to my night routine. I am very impressed and plan to repurchase. Its the 3rd high concentration niacinamide serum I have tried (The Ordinary & Cosrx, both very good) and Cos de Baha is definitely my favorite. The bottle is smaller than expected, but it's still a fair buy for the price. Be aware that it's rather sticky and viscous, almost like honey. Despite being prone to clogged pores, the texture does not bother me at all, but be prepared. The stickiness went away after I applied my night lotion, but I'm not sure if foundation would sit well on top of this. It spreads over skin MUCH more easily with a compatible essence underneath. It gives an extremely glassy finish, which I like. It did not clog my pores or dry my skin. I'm expecting it will prevent clogged pores but too soon to tell. I am thrilled with the combination of several actives and the listing of percentages. Please do not change or discontinue!
