Not 100% sure if it works….yet
I was on the fence about this one.
Pros: I feel like this serum added a much needed hydration boost to my skin. I used it with the Hyaluronic acid serum (which Is recommended by Simple for maximum effect).
There are no nasties and the “simple” ingredient list was great for my sensitive skin. I did not experience any breakouts or irritation.
A great makeup base- it is absorbed really well by the skin so makeup sits smoothly on top.
Cons: long term I’m not sure if this serum actually offers any anti aging for fine lines. Personally, I didn’t notice any differences in my complexion. And I don’t think my complexion improved that much overall. However it can sometimes take up to 3 months to see optimal results so I wouldn’t write it off.
Overall, it does add significant hydration to the skin. And it was well absorbed and compatible with cream moisturisers and as a base for makeup.
time will tell
as per my other review... its too soon to tell. The product feels light on the skin and lacks any uncomfortable residues. Ive been pleased to see no reactions have occured either as i am quite prone. packaged up neatly and easy to use. This product is likely to be added to my daughters beginner skincare routine as its so gentle and user friendly. as always i love a fragrance free product. I look forward to seeing the longer term effects and if it helps my tired skin come back to life. The current hydration levels certainly seem better
You won’t be disappointed, give it a try
Check: Another addition to my daily skin care routine after trialing this simple booster serine niacinamide (vitamin B3). It has done wonders for my skin along side the hyaluronic acid. My skin has honestly never felt better, my skin is very dry so this product has really helped hydrate it. I really love the price tag on these products too and feel they are just as good a product as some of the other high priced serums. Comes with an easy to use dropper, the product is a milky colour with little to no fragrance, a little definitely goes a long way and soaks into the skin beautifully leaving no sticky feeling on your face
I would recommend to everyone looking to add a serum into their daily routine, give this product a try because I feel you won’t look back
In love with this product!
As someone with super sensitive skin, I was super impressed with how quickly this product cleared up blemishes on my face without drying out or irritating my face! This product is super easy to use, improved my skin and glides on so easily under makeup! It also made my skin glow! I would recommend this product to anyone else with sensitive skin, blemishes or anyone who wants a great pick me up skincare product!!! I also love the dropper function, as it makes the product super easy to use, and I love using it with my gua sha for that snatched glowing look! Niacinamide is one of my favourite ingredients, and I will purchase this product again! I also have gotten heaps of compliments on how my skin looks now!
Like with the Hyaluronic Acid, the packaging is super cute and I found it easy to understand what the product targets and how to effectively use it by looking at the label which you don’t get with other brands like The Ordinary.
I liked that it was very lightweight and instantly absorbed into the skin. I also found it didn’t leave any residue which is a bonus for me.
I used this in conjunction with the hyaluronic acid serum, and I can’t say that I saw any changes in aging but I definitely found my skin more hydrated.
Like with other reviews, the dropper didn’t always pick up the product and I had to go back in a few times to get any product to dispense.
Great under make up
So affordable and such high niacinamide content for the price. Love that the product is fairly low fuss with a great ingredients list. Easy to use and easy to follow along the recommended usage. Dropper is easy to use and helps with product dispensing. Great to use daily with no irritation or issues. Would suggest to anyone keen to try this and keep their skin soft and clear to use this ! This absorbs easy into my skin and I can continue to add moisturiser and makeup without it piling like other serums.
Great value for money
Having never used a niacinamide product on my skin before I was a bit skeptic all of the results. However for the past week I have been using this every night paired with the Simple Hylaronic acid every morning and my skin feels much more glowing and hydrated.
The product paired well with the other products in my skincare, and did not feel sticky / absorbed very quickly into the skin.
I would recommend this product if your skin is feeling dull and needs hydration as I found the combo worked well.
Value for money is great with this product, it felt comparable to other slightly more high end serums I have used in the past for a fraction of the price.
The dropper system is slightly annoying to use but all in all a great product.
Noticed immediate difference
I really enjoyed this Simple Vitamin B3 and Niacinamide serum booster. I generally have quite dry skin and this really moisturised my skin without being oily or sticky. I also have sensitive skin, and it did slightly burn on the first few uses but nothing too severe. I like that this product does not contain any harsh chemicals as my skin is quite sensitive, I can react negatively to harsh chemicals found in most beauty products. I found that this product instantly improved the skin barrier on my face and improved texture and evened skin tone.
Ticks all the boxes! Simple and so fabulous!
So thankful to be included in the trial for the new Simple Booster Serum 10% Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) ! First impressions are lasting as are the results and it's all good for me... I love it! when combined with Simple Booster Serum 3% Hyaluronic Acid & B5 my skin felt better than it had in a long time, these new products by Simple are affordable and they work... seriously what more could you ask for! I love that there is little to no scent and 2 drops along with two drops of the Hyaluronic Acid & B5 is all you need for skin that looks brighter, feels softer and is most definitely more hydrated!
Use with a clear conscience, these products are free from nasty chemicals, no artificial colours, perfume, parabens etc, are derived naturally, cruelty free and not tested on animals!
It's tick tick tick !
Glowing Skin and great for sensitive skin!
Let me start off by saying that I’m a huge fan of this product!
I’ve always used a niancinimide + hyaluronic acid serum combo in my skincare routine, and have been steadily using the ones from the ordinary. However, I don’t love the texture of the ordinary’s niancinimide as it’s rather goopy- and much preferred their hylamide brand’s versions. However- those are a lot more expensive and a bit unaffordable compared to the ordinary’s so I went back to those since there was never anything comparable on the market for a similar price and effectiveness. Until, simple made their own of course!
I love the texture of this serum, it doesn’t cause any piling under make up which I had issues with on the goopy texture of the ordinary’s serum. I find that simple’s serum also doesn’t sting my face. My skin is very sensitive and this product doesn’t set off redness at all which is fantastic! My face feels hydrated when used especially in conjunction with simple’s hyaluronic acid serum and I highly recommend this in anyone’s daily morning and night routine. I’ve noticed that my face has been glowing and smooth after a week of using this serum so it’s working well!
Love this serum! This paired with other serums in my skin care routine fitted perfectly. I love how big this bottle is and the bottle will last for a very long time! It’s also one of the most cost effective serums on the market that I’ve found!
This serum left my skin hydrated and plump, I believe it helped with my appearance of pimples and pimple related scaring. It took me a little bit to get over the thick milky texture but I soon understood, it’s because of the vitamin boost!
I will be sure to use this and buy this on repeat
Better / Easier than The Ordinary
Despite only trialling this product for over a week now, I really enjoyed how easy it was to incorporate into my routine, how smooth the texture was (not sticky!) and how it didn't pill under or over my other products.
I have used The Ordinary Niacinamide in the past and honestly, I enjoyed the Simple product more as it was easier to use and saw the same effects, especially ontop of the Simple Hyaluronic Acid Serum. I'm really excited to see it's full potential in the next month!
One thing I will note is that the dropper isn't as effective as it could have been — it doesn't really hold a lot of liquid so thats just a functional aspect that the brand could perhaps look into in the future.
Transformed my skin
I previously used to use a different brand of Niacinamide but stopped due to the awful sticky residue it left behind on my skin and my inability to them later other products and make up on top. This product is an absolute game changer and I’m so glad to have niacinamide back in my skincare routine. It really does refine skin texture and gives you a healthy glow. I also found that it helped reduce my oil production throughout the day so in turn my make up Sat better and lasted longer. Overall really happy with the performance of this serum and plan to continue to use it!
Like but not love…
I wanted to love this product, but I’m just not converted like I hoped I would be! There are several positives to this product: absolutely no reaction to my very sensitive skin, fragrance free, light weight, and absorbed into my skin straight away without leaving any feeling on my skin. It was very light weight which was a nice surprise.
However, I don’t think I saw a change in my skin using this product. I was hoping to notice something different, but unfortunately, I didn’t feel like my skin was any better than before I trialled this product which was a shame. Perhaps I have to use it for a bit longer to notice changes? Overall, I’m on the fence for this product, though will continue using it to see if I see any changes.
So amazing on my skin
I use this serum after cleaning face. Its a light weight, non sticky and non greasy serum which absorbs fast. It is easy to apply and instantly moisturizes the skin, leaving my skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated. I’ve added it into my daily routine, making sure I use morning and night.
I has extremely sensitive skin skin which could easily get irritated. I saw that this product is both fragrance and alcohol free, that's why I started using it on a daily basis.
Being a vegan formula is an added bonus.
Would buy again
This product is actually really good. It’s light, not sticky or too heavy. I feel like it’s easy to use with the little dropper as opposed to a pump bottle. I don’t generally use serums as I’m so time pour- bad excuse i know. But this is super quick and easy and just works as I’m in bed! I would recommend this to people who prefer non or light scented fragrances, it really does absorb into the skin really nicely without feeling too thick or heavy. Thanks for allowing me to try this it’s really made a deference in my skin and my beauty routine
Can’t believe the value
Honestly it was so much better than I expected. For the price point I was not expecting it to be as good as some of my holy grail products. I love the Paula’s choice niacinamide which is like three times the cost of this serum, so I wasn’t expecting the simple serum to go toe to toe with my much more expensive serum, but honestly I feel that it did, I switched this into my routine and my skin I think noticeably improved, or at least stayed the same, and for a budget serum that is beyond impressive. I will definitely be repurchasing this once it’s empty and I think it has found it’s way permanently onto my skincare routine.
As someone who has sensitive dry skin that is incredibly reactive, to find a serum that works and doesn’t irate is like hitting the gold mine. Super happy to recommend this to anyone who is looking for inexpensive serums to start off with or substitute into their routine.
Affordable Makeover in a bottle
Niacinamide (vitamin B3) is a stable vitamin that offers a wide range of well-documented topical benefits. Niacinamide helps hydrate skin, treats hyper-pigmentation, promotes skin elasticity, decreases redness and blotchiness and acts as an antioxidant, fighting free radicals
Niacinamide reduces inflammation , which may help ease redness from eczema, acne, and other inflammatory skin conditions. Minimizes pore appearance. Keeping skin smooth and moisturized may have a secondary benefit — a natural reduction in pore size over time.
For me its done all of that, I'm so impressed with how effectively its worked in just 2 weeks.
It along with Hyaluronic Acid as replaced multiple items in my skincare routine so now not only is my routine much quicker its also so much more affordable.
Product reflects price
The combination of the two serums was easy, as the both serums dried quickly so the process didn’t take too long. I have normal to dry skin and unfortunately I did not find the serums very moisturising and my skin felt tighter than when using my usual skincare products.
The products consistency felt good, as they were not too sticky, however the niaciamide stung my skin a bit.
I probably wouldn’t recommend this product, as I didn’t feel many benefits and would stick to my current skincare regime.
I have been pairing this with the Simple Booster Serum 3% Hyaluronic Acid & B5, the two seem to work well together and complement each other. I have dry skin with plenty of embellishments and imperfections - this serum really seems to be helping clear up my skin and smooth it out. Have generally been using at night before bed and wake up still feeling nice and fresh which is always a big plus. Would recommend this to anyone looking for niacinamide! Do yourself a favour and try it out, particularly if you want to improve the look and feel of your skin.
