My thoughts on TIAM Vita B3 Source
I am a sucker for brightening products since hyper pigmentation is one of my main concerns about my skin. I don’t have any acne scars but this is supposed to be really great on those as well.
I have been using brightening product for a while now. Actually since I started with Korean skincare which is about seven years ago. So there is a limit to how much better my skin can get. But since I am an outdoor person I do feel that this is something I need to use so it doesn’t get worse. If i stop using brightening products I do get more hyper pigmentation. So this is one of those types of products I will continue using for ever I guess.
Tiam Vita B3 source contains 10% Niacinamide and 2% arbutin which are typical ingredients in brightening products.
TIAM Vita B3 Source comes in a glass bottle with a pipette. A simple but effective packaging for a serum.
The serum is lightweight and absorbs really fast into my skin without leaving it sticky and I can easily apply my next step after using it. It is is clear in color and has no scent which I really enjoy.
This is a product that claims to reduce sebum as well and that is something I really can’t say anything about. I do have really dry skin and I mean desert dry and I haven’t noticed any problem with my skin being too dry after using it.
C vitamin product can be a little problematic for sensitive skin types so be sure to try it out slowly and do a patch test. If you have sensitive skin I would not use this during day time if you are going to be outdoors. My skin is not super sensitive but when I use this and goes outside I do feel that my skin isn’t super happy with me. And it really doesn’t help if I wear my sunscreen either.
It is not an expensive serum so really anyone can afford it.
If you are looking for a product that makes hyper pigmentation or acne scars less visible this is really a product you should try. I really enjoy using this since it is really simple to use.
I give this product 6/7
