How to Use:
- Cleanse your face.
- Pat dry.
- Apply 3-5 drops of serum, on entire face and neck, massaging gently till the serums gets absorbed into the skin. Use this during bed time.

It comes in a glass frosty white bottle with a dropper attached, which makes it convenient and easy application. Since the bottle isn’t transparent, it keeps the active ingredient from oxidation. Moreover, the additional cardboard box, also containing the full details about the product, helps protect the glass bottle. All in all the packaging is sturdy, spill-proof, thus, travel friendly.
The only downside of this serum is its fragrance. Since it is dermatologist approved, I expected it a zero-fragrance product. The fragrance isn’t too strong though, lingering for hours or triggering headaches. But it didn’t cause my skin any irritation either. However, it may cause an irritation to people with sensitive skin.
The product texture is neither thick nor too runny. It spreads on the skin quickly. It leaves a slightly sticky residue behind after the application. However, post moisturiser application, the stickiness goes off. The skin rather feels hydrated and looks bright and glowing.
On any dry or normal skin type, the serum would absorb a little quickly. However, on oily or combination skin, the product would just sit on the skin’s surface (during summers). It is, therefore, suggested for oily and combination skin types to use this serum during dry weather.
The rich hydrating properties of this serum makes it an ideal choice for people with dry skin. Nevertheless, you need a good moisturizer for a well-moisturized skin all day long. Furthermore, the serum is not at all heavy.
I use this Niacinamide serum during bedtime. It has actually contributed an incredible radiance and glow to my skin. It took only a month to help diminish the acne scars on my cheeks. One can expect a minimum of three months of consistent product usage for it to show drastic improvements to the skin texture. However, this product has quite a high concentration of Niacinamide, it didn’t cause me any skin irritation. If you have a sensitive skin, I would recommend you to start with 5% Niacinamide serum, or else a higher concentration might trigger skin irritations.
My overall experience with The Derma Co Niacinamide serum was pleasant. It’s priced reasonable for a quantity that can last for 2-3 months. It is free from parabens and silicones. Most importantly, it is dermatologically tested.
