REVIEW | Ruruberry 10% Niacinamide + HA 30ml

What’s a Malaysian skincare brand that you know?

Honestly, I’ve never really looked at locally-made skincare products because I’ve always looked towards Korean skincare brands. But I’m glad I have the opportunity to try made-in-Malaysia Ruruberry!


In case you’re the kind of person who wants to know about a company before buying their products, I did a little digging about them. According to their website, they believe in, “being kind to their skin, the animals, and our earth” while enhancing your beauty.

I truly believe they achieved their objective with their product, as it’s not only cruelty-free, it’s fragrance-free, AND its packaging is recyclable.

The whole list of their no-no’s.


Their Claims

This serum is meant to help with combating dark spots, enlarged pores, inflammatory acne, and free radicals with precision. And it seems like any skin type can use this too. One thing I noticed is that they have a few key ingredients:

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)

  • Regulate pigment-making cells
  • Normalize sebum production
  • Tighten lax pores, smooth rough edges
  • Brighten skin tone

Hyaluronic Acid

  • Attract and hold moisture
  • Plump away wrinkles
  • Firm up sagging skin.

Panthenol (Vitamin B5)

  • Relieves the symptoms of irritated skin.

Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C)

  • Heals blemishes
  • Gentle to the skin

Acetyl Glucosamine

  • Diminish signs of aging


It has a lightweight texture which resembles a watered-down maple syrup consistency. I’m not sure if you’re able to visualise that description, but you can just refer to this photo.

I think what’s most appealing is what happens after applying–it feels like there’s nothing on my skin. Like legit. Absolutely no stickiness and it was absorbed so quickly.

Okay I’ll finally talk about what you’ve been waiting for–the before and after results. I’ll show you my cheek area as the results are most obvious in this part of my skin. Here’s a photo before using Ruruberry, taken on 4 September 2020:

Noticeable blemishes, big pores, and mask-ne scars.

I used this product starting from 4 September 2020 until 26 September 2020, so here are my after photos: (photos taken are on 26 Sep 2020).

I didn’t see much of a difference in terms of my blemishes and pores. You can compare the photos and you have to agree I still have pores looking like Spongebob.

BUT! I noticed my redness did indeed reduce, and I feel like my skin has stabilised a lot. I was getting acne at random areas on my face (example: my above my eyebrow. So it can’t be due to masks), but now it doesn’t occur anymore.

Overall, I’ll rate it a 8/10. Despite it not working completely for me (results might differ for you), I’ll continue using it as my skin did improve. The most important part for me is the stabilisation. Yay to less frequent breakouts!
