In recent years, there has been a growing interest in natural ingredients in skincare. Two such ingredients that have gained popularity are rice water and niacinamide serum. Rice water is made by fermenting rice with plums and has been used for centuries in Asian skincare as a gentle exfoliant and brightener. Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, is a powerful ingredient that helps to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. I found a product which includes both the ingredients, it is none other than Plum Rice Water and Niacinamide Serum 😊 I am in my late 30’s and can see fine lines on my skin but don’t have pigmented skin.

How to use it:
Take 2-3 drops and pat the Niacinamide face serum into your skin. Best used after cleansing and before moisturizing. Ensure the serum is fully absorbed before layering. Can be used day and night.
Packaging: Serum comes in transparent eco-friendly glass bottle with a dropper. Consistency of the serum is milky white and bit viscous in texture. Sometimes it is hard to take product out of the bottle 🤦♀️
My opinion about the product: The serum has a lightweight and easily absorbed texture that feels comfortable on the skin. It has a subtle, pleasant scent and is suitable for all skin types. With regular use, I noticed that my skin appeared brighter and more even-toned. I also found that our pores appeared less visible, and our skin felt more hydrated and plumper.
One thing to note is that niacinamide can cause slight redness or tingling for some people when they first start using it. If you experience this, it’s important to start with a lower concentration of niacinamide and gradually build up to avoid irritation.
I suggest this serum for oily skin to try only in winters (as it may be bit heavy in remaining seasons) . One thing I would like to say that I didn’t see any visible effects on my fine lines. To be honest my age in increasing and fine lines and wrinkle are obvious thing so can’t say how effective this serum is on fine lines and wrinkle. However the purpose for which I purchased is not fulfilled so I will not purchase is again. But will recommend if you are not facing fine lines and wrinkles and getting smooth and glowing skin is your wish 😊
