Yeah, don’t get that, that seems like it would have a high likelihood of breaking you out – it broke me out and my skin doesn’t break out anywhere near as easily as yours seems to. I’d look for a serum or asian essence or toner with few ingredients to minimize the chance of it breaking you out. Most niacinamide products are targeted to lightening hyperpigmentation/melasma spots, so that is something that can tip you off that a product is likely to have it. Studies have also shown it to be around as effective as clindamycin in treating acne, and it can also help your skin produce ceramides, which aid in skin barrier function. idk it has just a lot of good benefits, these aren’t even all of them. If you can, try to patch test on an area that you know breaks out when you use lotions but is out of the way – I patch test on my right temple because it reliably reacts to stuff, doesn’t scar easily, and my hair swoops over that side of my face so if I do break out, it is easily covered, lol.

Some options:

http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod2450045 – all of the olay regenerist line have it. I have never used their serums, but they’re easily available

http://www.amazon.com/INTERNATIONAL-SHIPPING-IOPE-Intensive-Conditioning/dp/B00C99NJNA – I have used this, it has basically the texture/feel of water. It does have some plant extracts in it which could be irritating but none of those fatty alcohols that often break people out.

http://www.gardenofwisdom.com/catalog/item/7463739/9867792.htm – I have used other GoW products and liked them but I’ve never used this. It has very few ingredients though so seems pretty unlikely to break you out. They also have a sample size: http://www.gardenofwisdom.com/catalog/item/7463739/9867788.htm

http://www.amazon.com/Cosrx-Galactomyces-White-Power-Essence/dp/B00OZE57XW/ – some people have said this breaks them out, this is a thicker texture and has butylene glycol. The name has actually changed to whitening power essence on account of, you know, how racist the first name sounded, which the Korean company didn’t realize until it was pointed out.

http://holysnails.storenvy.com/products/15121374-shark-sauce – this is made by someone on /r/asianbeauty and a bunch of people over there love it. I’ve never tried it.

http://www.amazon.com/CelSignal-Hydrating-Nufountain-Youthful-Complexion/dp/B0038AA4S2/ – haven’t ever used this either but apparently it has a very watery texture and absorbs quickly
