Please note that I have translated all of the following news from Korean so please quote me if using any of the below. 


Importance of Beauty Reviews is Strengthening 

As online beauty product purchases become commonplace, the importance of beauty reviews is strengthening. Industry analysts say that the impact of reviews has been greater than ever as cosmetics purchases have increased following the pandemic. 

One local Korean review platform reported that the category with the highest number of reviews is 'point makeup' centered on color. In particular, reviewers love checking the the reviews to assess whether a product is the right color or tone for their skin.

Question of the Week: A Question About Mixing Skincare Ingredients Vitamin C and Niacinamide


Daphne got in touch over Instagram wanted to know more about mixing ingredients, and in particular about mixing Vitamin C and niacinamide

Let's start off with why we love Vitamin C

  • Fades dark spots and helps even skin tone
  • Plays a vital role in collagen production
  • Potent antioxidant


  • Tackles hyperpigmentation
  • Helps with big pores and acne
  • Helps soften fine lines

Can you use them together?


Both niacinamide and Vitamin C have complementary benefits, particularly when it comes to skin brightening. 

However, the reason you will sometimes hear that these two should be avoided in combination is because some older research showed that mixing L-Ascorbic Acid (pure Vitamin C) with Niacinamide could convert it to the compound niacin, which can cause flushing. 

The reason I don't think you need to worry too much about this is because that study used nonstabilized forms of both ingredients in a high-temperature environment. That's not the kind of environment your skincare products are in. 

If you are worried, I would suggest proceeding with caution and patch-testing

Another good work around is something likeSOME BY MI Yuja Niacin Serum because it contains a fruit-derived form of Vitamin C with Niacinamide. 

The formula combines 82% Yuja extract with 5% Niacinamide, making it great for freckles and dark spots.
