My skincare regimen isn't Complete without Niacinamide! #NiacinamideVitaminB3

Press Sample. All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

In my journey to find my Holy Grail skincare, I've discovered that there are a few ingredients that my skin loves, and I love how they make my skin feel:  Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Niacinamide.  My particular version of aging + oily skin really loves a serum for concentrated doses of these wonder ingredients.  No matter what skincare I'm testing, it seems that when I add Niacinamide, like this serum from Complete Skin Solutions, it just takes my skincare up a notch!

This serum is full of good things like plant oils and extracts.  Neem is a wonderful oil for healing skin, and a natural antiseptic.  Arnica is a natural pain reliever and soother, and licorice brightens skin.  Plant oils like Safflower, Apricot kernel, Sweet Almond, and Rosehip are full of Vitamins C and E, which are so good for the skin. It's also made in the USA, and is Paraben and Gluten-Free, as well as Cruelty-free.
I love that the serum comes in a pump dispenser, which helps to preserve the efficacy of the ingredients by minimizing contact with the air and bacteria from our hands.  It's a slightly thick, milky white consistency that smells really nice - slightly floral, maybe from the honeysuckle extract?  It doesn't last long, and absorbs really quickly, which is nice because I'm usually layering serums with my moisturizer.  

Niacinamide is a version of Vitamin B3 that helps dilate blood vessels in the skin, allowing more nutrients to get into the skin.  It also helps to fill in small lines and wrinkles, plump the skin, and lighten dark spots.  When I used this serum, I noticed my skin looked brighter, less tired and sallow, and more hydrated. It also really helps keep my blemishes away!

For my nailart today, I was really inspired by the packaging!  I used Zoya Jacqueline layered with Savvy Sheer French White to try and emulate the milky color of the bottle.  I used Zoya Pippa for the yellow sunburst, and a mixture of Butter London Sozzled and A England Fotheringhay  Castle for the leaves.

For more information, or to purchase, you can find Complete Skin Solutions Niacinamide Pure Vitamin B3 Serum 5% on Amazon, where it currently is on sale for $19.90.

Have you added a Niacinamide serum to your skincare yet?
