Brand Overview

Paula's Choice 10% Niacinamide Booster promises refined pores and more even skin tone—and thanks to its namesake ingredient, that's really possible. The cherry on top? It's anti-aging, too!

Dispensed via dropper, this booster's light-as-water consistency can easily be mixed in with your go-to serum/moisturizer, or it can be applied directly to skin. It's compatible with all skin types, but those with oily skin will especially appreciate the weightless, non-greasy finish.

Research backs the claim that niacinamide in this product's concentration is particularly effective for helping improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and minimizing hyperpigmentation from acne. It's also helpful for bringing enlarged pores back to their normal size and diminishing signs of aging, including fine lines and rough texture.

Vitamin C and other antioxidants join the fragrance-free formula to enhance the complexion-refining benefits and boost skin's anti-pollution defense. We're also happy to see hydrating/soothing ingredients in the mix.

In short, 10% Niacinamide Booster is an effective, unique option if you're looking for a multitasking formula to target large pores, fine lines, post-acne marks, and uneven skin tone.

Pros:
  • Potent concentration of niacinamide, backed by research for improving uneven, aging skin.
  • Helps refine pore size.
  • Additional antioxidants, including vitamin C, help brighten skin.
  • Soothing, water-like texture suits all skin types.
  • Fragrance free.
Cons:
  • None.
Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No

Paula's Choice Skincare At-A-Glance

 

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products.

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable, from acne to wrinkles.

Paulas Choice Skincare relies on published research where available to discover the best ingredients for skin. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down. The line is also 100% fragrance-free.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is the creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Why are Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedias criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.
