There is something fundamentally confusing about The Ordinary, you shouldn’t need a science degree to figure out what’s in your skincare.
If you read my Niacinamide vs Vitamin C before, you’ll know that these ingredients are both for hyperpigmentation. That’s not to say they can’t do other things but generally that’s what they’re for.
There is a subtle difference between the two, which is very much dependant on what kind of hyperpigmentation you have.
The other important difference to consider is your skin type. By this, I mean how your skin feels most of the time.
More importantly, The Ordinary recommends you don’t mix any of these products. Hence, I only recommend trying one thing and patch testing. This will prevent damage to the skin!
The Ordinary Niacinamide Vs Vitamin C Quiz
So, what did you get? Will you be trying your recommendation? I sincerely hoped this helped you decide which ingredient is for you because it took a long time configure this quiz.
Lastly, it’s important to note, neither of these ingredient will treat acne, retinol is best for that. That is a question because it can show what your skin type is.
However, if I had to choose one to add to an acne routine, it would be Vitamin C. As it has stronger antioxidant properties. It’s also good at removing bumps from the skin!
