Has anyone tried a Niacinamide Cream?

Hi, has anyone here tried a niacinamide cream or take this orally for acne and scars? I can only find 2 creams online and not many reviews. One product is called Acnessential and it looks promising but the website and cost is a little shady - very pricey and you are forced to buy 2 tubs of this stuff. Any advice on a B3 cream or otherwise? Thanks very much!

I have, it won't fill in scars at all, but it can help the inflammation and I didn't have any side effects at all. It mainly helped with redness when I was having a real problem with that.

I've made my own 5% niancinamide gel. I just started using it once a day maybe two weeks ago, so I can't tell you how effective it is. The main reason I'm using it is for acne/oily skin. I don't expect any improvement in pitted scarring, but if that were to happen, I assure you I will be posting it. I also tried metazene gel, but after the first application I broke out in cystic acne in the areas where I used it...I'm not sure why as I've had no problems with my homemade gel. Anyway, good luck. :D
