A blemish treatment that actually works, but only costs £5? Yep, really.

The Ordinary's whole ethos is to provide simple yet effective formulas containing just one or two ingredients, enabling them to sell the range for a far lower price than many other brands. There's a whole host of different serums, treatments and oils to choose from, but for those with blemish prone skin, The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a winner.

For those who are unfamiliar with niacinamide, it’s a derivative of vitamin B and ergo, if you suffer from dullness, blemishes or fine lines, products containing it will offer your skin a helping hand.

This high strength treatment in particular is a lightweight, gel-like formula that works to reduce the appearance of spots and balance out sebum in the skin. Just be aware that you won't see a difference overnight - but after applying it every morning and evening for a few weeks you'll start to notice your skin texture improving.
