This innovative treatment is our first ever to contain niacinamide at a safe, effective 20% concentration. The advanced formula effectively minimises the look of stretched pores, orange-peel texture and clogged bumps to reveal a smoother, brighter, more refined appearance.
The Clinical Niacinamide 20% Treatment has a liquid-gel texture and is suitable for all skin types, but has been especially formulated for those with stubborn concerns surrounding pore size, pore function and rough texture as a result of ageing and sun damage.

Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.This is a wonderful product that, for me, has a kind of 'resurfacing' effect without any of the harshness of acid peels. Plus, very importantly, it really deflates/calms down bumps and spots (I am mid-50s and get some very stubborn and annoying ones these days...). My skin really looks better in the morning, after using it at night, and this is visible from day one. Returning now to buy my second bottle!
Customer Care: Hi Dr. Lex, thanks for this great review of our Clinical 20% Niacinamide. The highly concentrated formula can have dramatic effects on large pores and rough pumps and I'm so happy you've seen these results. This can be combined well with an AHA or BHA exfoliant for even better results. If you have any questions about how to incorporate this into your routine you can always contact our Skincare Experts! Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer Care Team.It really helped minimizing my pores. I used it at nighttimes after I cleansed my face. After one bottle I saw the difference from my pores. My skin condition looks amazing when I have the niacinamide serum on my face. But after I wash it off, my face looks tired again. I recommend it to people with large pores and oily skin/ or oily skin at the tea zones. That’s my issue and the serum really helped my oily skin to be less oily during the day and night.

Why did Paula's Choice formulate another niacinamide product?
The Clinical Niacinamide 20% Treatment was the brainchild of Paula herself. Having experienced such great results with the 10% Niacinamide Booster, she wanted to see if doubling the percentage would give her even better results on her most stubborn concerns (clogged pores and sebaceous hyperplasia). The results exceeded expectations and the rest is history. Along with niacinamide, Paula and team added some key supporting ingredients that really make this product a standout for anyone wanting to tackle large pores, rough bumpy texture and uneven skin tone.
How is the Clinical Niacinamide 20% Treatment different from the 10% Niacinamide Booster?
Most notably, it contains twice the amount of niacinamide and is delivered in a gel texture vs. a liquid. Additionally, it includes a variety of supporting ingredients such as meadowsweet, purslane and camellia japonica to help reduce excess oil and offset collagen-degrading enzymes that can lead to stubborn, enlarged pores.
Should customers use the 10% Niacinamide Booster, the Clinical Niacinamide 20% Treatment or both?
It depends on the severity of their primary concerns. If they have more advanced concerns such as stretched, sagging pores, orange peel-like texture, or stubborn oil-related bumps, the 20% strength is a great option. If their concerns are mostly around enlarged pores and uneven skin tone, the 10% strength will meet their needs. Customers can also alternate the two at a cadence that works best for them (this may take some experimenting).
Why is the 20% Niacinamide a part of the Clinical line vs. Boosters?
Clinical is all about advanced solutions which makes it the perfect collection for this new, potent treatment. As an intensive results-oriented product, the Clinical Niacinamide 20% Treatment was specifically formulated to tackle complex skincare concerns for those who find the 10% Niacinamide Booster isn’t quite enough. All Clinical products are formulated to mix into a multitude of routines, giving customers just the right dose they need to target their specific concerns.
