  2. Hi everyone. This is my first post and I am interested in starting B3 treatment. There is really no totally definitive thread about B3 on here so I thought I would start one.

From the Ingredient dictionary on cosmeticscop.com niacinamide. Also called vitamin B3, niacin, and nicotinic acid, this water-soluble ingredien
  6.

Well it was still working great, but costing me a fortune. The container is small (wish I still had an empty one to check the ml!), and it was rarely on sale for less than $21. Usually $26.99, and I was having to buy a new one every couple weeks... ouch. So, I took a huge risk and went shopping for a new moisturizer. I knew I'd stick with Olay since
  8. Found this on Drugstore.com / GNC.com article they wrote explaining what the B vitamins are and the B complex. Here's an exert and the site w/ the article is on the bottom.
