The Ordinary Azelaic Acid, Niaminicide and Argireline

I have just ordered these 3 items, hoping that they will help with redness, blemishes and open pores (the AA and Niaminicide), and fine lines around eyes (Argireline - supposedly nature's answer to Botox).

Has anyone used any of these for these specific concerns, and did they work at all?

Azelaic is very popular and seems to work for most ppl. If you don't like silicones, try GoW Azelaic serum from Victoria Health.

Niacinamide is really tricky. A real love/hate product. Definitely patch test for a good week on small area. Makes a lot of ppl break out (with bumps/whiteheads usually), some find mixing a couple of drops with moisturiser works better for them. It's a potent % which is why it's tricky, I think. Again, GoW have a similar serum but lower % so worth considering if the Ordinary one is problematic.

Argireline - don't know much about this. I'd suggest you join the Fb group. Very friendly. Lots of info Files. You can search a particular product and find previous posts. We talk about all other brands and aspects of skincare, not limited to the Ordinary.
