    Product Description: 
    Shark Sauce is the brightening serum that started a cult craze. Handmade by Holy Snails to the exacting specifications of ingredients-focused skincare nerds, this serum utilizes the synergistic powers of 5% niacinamide and 3% n-acetylglucosamine to brighten skin without irritation. Meanwhile, licorice root and green tea extracts calm irritation and reduce redness, while sea kelp bioferment and hyaluronic acid hydrate skin from within for a smoother, plumper, more glowy complexion.

    • Niacinamide: Fades hyperpigmentation, increases elasticity, strengthens barrier function.
    • Licorice root extract: Brightens skin, reduces redness and irritation.
    • Sea kelp bioferment: Hydrating, emollient, antioxidant.

      I really like the product and I’ve purchased it multiple times. However, yet again the label is poor quality (sticky). I have to remove the entire label but the problem is that I don’t know which shark sauce is which! I hope they remedy this issue because again, the actual product is nice!

      Not worth the money

      This was expensive for the size, and a little does NOT go a long way. I've had it for barely a month and I'm already halfway through. Unfortunately, this brand uses parabens in their formula. I don't know how I missed that before! If I had, I wouldnt have bought it.

      Good entry-level product

      Started with this OG shark sauce, saw some brightening and have since graduated to the double shark formula. This is a good entry-level product for those trying niacinamide-heavy product for the first time.

      Quite Sharky

      i wanted to give niacinamide another shot, since it's such a great ingredient and i needed a serum that was FA safe. (the ordinarys niacinamide and zinc was a disaster) I do notice a difference using it, but it seems to bank. As in, you have to use it consistently for about 2-3 weeks to notice a difference. The shark sauce with vitamin c looks intriguing, I may do that one next. It seems to really work best in synergy with other goodies. When used alone you may not see the "wow miracles" you were hoping for. In other news, it did not cause any irritation, redness, whiteheads or cystic acne! So good news for FA sufferer or others with sensitive skin, it seems to be nice and gentle.
