Anyone who has experienced acne knows that the scarring that follows a breakout is one of the most frustrating things about the condition. But thankfully, Korean skincare brand Slurp has created a magic solution to dramatically reduce the marks left behind – introducing Niacid.
The serum is a clear-coloured vitamin oil developed specifically to heal scar-damaged skin. It is formulated with vitamin B3 and tranexamic acid and has been developed to focus on raising indentations and clearing persistent marks left on the skin surface by ‘inflammatory traumas’ such as acne.
The product, which comes from a Korean website but ships to the UK, is also packed with other important ingredients such as sodium hyaluronate, which hydrates and strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier, while medicinal herbs, scutellaria root and galactomyces deliver nutrients.
And if that wasn’t enough, the powerful serum also regulates sebum production, minimises pores, and gently exfoliates the skin to refine skin tone, all while prompting the growth of new cells. No wonder it is so popular!
Customers have been taking to the Slurp website to not only praise the product but show off their before and after results, which for the record, are incredible. And the rest of the world seems to think so too, because the Niacid serum has been so in-demand that the brand has been forced to limit purchases to two bottles per order.
One reviewer of the cult product commented: ‘Used about a quarter of my Niacid so far and it effectively faded my hyperpigmentation to a great extent. I can already tell this is going well. My skin looks clearer and just healthier (I see a glow!) after I added it into my routine and my skin texture looks smoother and not as “thin” as before too.’
Another agreed: ‘Undeniably one of the best products I have ever stumbled across. The difference in just two days has been mind-blowing,’ while a third echoed: ‘The next morning my skin looked the brightest it has ever been and I kid you not my red marks faded by I would say 80 per cent.’
We already knew K-beauty was good, but if you ever needed further proof, the pictures speak for themselves.
