What does it do?

Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3, which research has proven can reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, and dry skin. The light-as-water texture is designed to dramatically enhance your skincare while also providing soothing agents to promote visibly calm skin. Antioxidants and skin-replenishing ingredients make this product a multi-tasking must-have solution for all skin types.

How to use

Dispense 2-3 drops into the palm of your hand and then apply to your face. Add a couple more drops if you will also be applying to your neck and chest. During the day, finish with a moisturizer with SPF 30 or greater. Can be applied under the eye area, avoiding the eye itself.

      Comments about Paula's Choice Skincare RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster - 0.67 oz:

      I have pretty normal skin, but I do have a tendency to get some frustrating cystic spots around my forehead/eyebrows. They're deep, so eventually, they just disappear, but they're usually tender. Niacinimide as an ingredient has been a life-saver. It greatly reduces the swelling of these spots. That's my number one reason for using it, but it also keeps the texture of my skin generally smooth and bright.

        Since I have combination skin, I'm always struggling with large pores, blackheads especially on my nose, and redness on my cheek. I've been using the bha9 at night and this niacinamide booster in the morning for a couple of weeks now and I can see noticeable result.
        My skin tone is more even, and the pores on my nose are cleaner and smaller (looking from my 5x magnifying mirror).
        I really like the texture of this product because it's almost like water drops, very lightweight and absorbs right into my skin. This product along with bha9 make a great combo for troubled skin and large pores.

          I saw an immediate difference with this product. It's like my skin is so young looking and flawless. I use it every night and add it to a moisturizer because it's a liquid product in a dropper. Honestly it's a miracle. I love love love it!

              I bought this product for PIH. It did nothing as far as getting rid of it. Plus it's itchy and sticky on my skin. Also their 100% money back claim is not entirely true. Its true if you return it in 60 days, which doesn't really make sense because it takes at least 60 days to see if a product works or not. So once you realize it's not working, you're out of luck. I'm really annoyed by this and will not be ordering from this company again.

              Service and delivery comments:

              I contacted customer service before my 60 day return window and I never got a response. ( I no longer had the original order form because I used it to return another product that did not work). Not only that but I see my earlier review of this product was completely altered, which makes me think that all the negative reviews are somehow altered and are not telling the truth. I did find this company through Reddit's skin care forum, as I know many others have, and I will be making a post how my review had been altered.

                I use this product daily, usually just in the mornings but sometimes 2x a day. After my morning cleanse, I apply this in conjunction with my hydrating toner (Kiku high moist). It has made a noticeable difference in skin tone - face looks brighter & smoother (smaller, less noticeable pores). Also helps to fade PIH and lessen the appearance of fine lines. Something I'll definitely keep using :)

                  I purchased my first bottle in October 2016 and used it sparingly, but did notice a difference when using it. After starting a topical Vitamin C last month, and realizing it broke me out, I gave away the Vitamin C and started using the Niacinamide in place of it. I noticed the difference again, and even a lot lightening in the post inflammatory hyperpinmentation I get from acne. With the recent 20% off sale, I purchased my second bottle. Just in time too since the day I received my package, I used up the last bottle. I tend to only use this is the mornings, and even with once a day, I noticed a difference.

                  Really wanted this product to help reduce pore size. Notice no change at all! And my pores aren't even that big. I've tried mixing with w/ moisturizer and apply on top of moisturizer as directions sat, but still no change. Wouldn't buy again.

                    I got this back in December and used it once or twice and put it back in my drawer. For whatever reason I pulled it out a month ago and started using it on a daily basis. I have oily skin with large pores that you can see a mile away. After using it once a day, everyday for a month my pores appear much smaller and I'm not getting as oily as I was before. I've also noticed that my skin is softer and looks better overall.

                      I've been using this for awhile (more than 6 months) with the Resist Super Antioxidant Serum at night and it seems to do what it's suppose to. I use this and Serum then put a layer of Argan Oil and Pure Shea Butter on top and go to sleep. I'm nicely moisturized in the AM and ready to go. My skin looks better than it has in ten years. Thanks, Paula
