Skin care regimen (Moisturizer suggestion)

Hi I have oily/combo skin.  I've hyper-pigmentation, dark spots/ acne marks, textured skin.  I've been incorporating the ordinary products (niacinamide, alpha-arbutin, buffet), Murad outsmart acne clarifying treatment (for here and there breakouts)  and adapalene 0.1% in my skin care.  Also I've been using Sunday Riley's Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream and loving it.  I'm almost done with the container and indeed of a new one.  I received Sunday Riley's C.E.O vitamin C rich hydration cream in my Ipsy bag last month and was wondering if that would be a good fit with the other products I'm using. TIA.

Hi @Sadikun!


The only thing I can think of is using the vitamin c cream and niacinamide. Sometimes when they're used together, it turns a tiny bit yellow. This isn't harmful and doesn't really make the two products work any differently, but you might want to test out the combo at night just in case it happens.

Hey! @skcfan thank you! I thought that was a myth but I'll deff test it out. 

Re: Skin care regimen (Moisturizer suggestion)

@Sadikun Its a myth that they stop working when you use them together, but some forms of vitamin C and niacinamide turn yellow when they're used together. But, I think they're still working fine.

@skcfan I used them last night and didn't notice any difference.  I also used alpha arbutin and that may have played a role too.
