HI-REVIEW: NACIFIC Phyto Niacin Whitening Essence Review 💡

Hi beauties 💗

I am back with a review on the Nacific Phyto Niacin Whitening Essence. I currently have some acne marks from the breakouts I got during the stressful test season, so I thought this would be the perfect time to try out this essence and see if it does a good job in fading away the scarring while not being too harsh on the skin.

Price​: $36
Quantity​: 50ml
How to use​: After cleansing and toning, apply a couple drops of essence evenly onto the skin. Pat lightly onto face and neck until fully absorbed. Follow up with a moisturiser.

Nacific Phyto Niacin Whitening Essence is a ​brightening and hydrating​ essence​ ✨ As its name suggests, this essence is formulated with ​high concentration of Niacinamide​. Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3 which works to strengthen skin, reduce redness and discolouration as well as improving skin texture and minimising fine lines.

This essence contains ​Vitamin C derivatives​ extracted from natural sources such as lemon, morus alba bark, and rosa canina fruit. Vitamin C derivative is a star ingredient for fighting pigmentation and dullness, making your skin look more radiant and glowy without causing any irritations.

Apart from the brightening ingredients, ​Hyaluronic Acid is also found in the formula ​which helps to trap water within the skin, giving the serum its moisture retention effect. Last but not least, this product uses ​natural Bamboo extract​ as the main solvent instead of water which is another bonus! Bamboo extract is full of antioxidants and has good anti-inflammatory properties.

As an overall result, these key ingredients in the serum help to make our skin look more ​glowy, bright, supple and hydrated​ at the same time​ ​💫

Personal Thoughts

I have been using the Niacin Whitening Essence for a whole month and I have gone through around half a bottle of the product. Here’s what I have to say about this essence:

In terms of texture, it is very ​runny and watery​. I absolutely love how ​lightweight​ the essence is. It gets very​ easily absorbed​ into the skin and ​does not leave any tacky or oily feelings​ at all no matter how much product you put onto the skin. This allows me to ​layer the product at night time​, applying onto my entire face first and then focusing on the areas where I have more acne scars. The light texture of the essence also means it ​can also be used during the day​ as it works well with other skincare and makeup. Just make sure to use a ​sunblock as the last step of the skincare routine during the day ☀️

In terms of packing, it comes in a clear plastic bottle with a dropper. It is ​very convenient​ to use as you can drop the essence directly onto the skin, so no product is wasted and it’s ​very sanitary ✔️

And most importantly, the effectiveness of the product. After using the essence for one month straight and being quite generous with the amount of product I use each time, I have noticed a brightening of my overall complexion​. My skin does look more glowy and feels more supple to touch. I notice that my ​redness has disappeared and ​my ​acne scars have lightened slightly​, but ​I don’t see huge improvements in hyperpigmentation​. I think I will have to use it consistently for a longer period of time to see better results in terms of reducing hyperpigmentations. And as I mentioned before, this essence is very gentle and light on the skin, so it has not caused me any irritations or breakouts even though my skin is very sensitive.

Overall, I have really enjoyed using the ​Phyto Niacin Whitening Essence​ from Nacific. I would highly recommend​ it for ​beauties who are looking for an overall brightening to the complexion and hydration at the same time​ 💡​ Beauties with sensitive skin who can not take more potent brightening products should give this essence a try as well!! Sadly, this product might not be for those who are looking for a serum that will work  magic on fading away acne scarring or freckles ​😔

Thank you for reading till the end. See you guys in the next review and let’s be pretty 💗
