Packaging: a bottle made of dark glass with a pipette, which, by the way, holds the product well. The texture is slippery, I would even say slimy. Applied in the morning after toner daily from the moment of receipt. (About 2 weeks of use in total) It absorbs well and leaves a shine that I don't really like, to be honest. So then I select products that can drown out this glow. It may be sticky, but this is also solved with the help of a cream. The skin does not dry out or tighten. Very comfortable product in general👍. It’s a fragrance-free serum, there is only a subtle smell. It disappears instantly. I apply one pipette to the entire face and neck. But even half can be enough, depend on your preferences 😃. Despite some nuances, I am satisfied with the serum because of the visible result in a short time. Plus it didn't cause any new inflammation. 👍 And the budget price makes this product even more attractive. 🤑 I definitely fall into the team of those who love this serum. 😝😃
The product can live stickiness and shine on my face, as for me it’s not a big deal . Because it’s very effective.

This is my fourth niacinamide serum and since February, I kept on repurchasing this product as it became my holy grail. I've been stressed how many niacinamide products didn't work for me, I took the risk and bought this one and finally, after four months of using, my skin has healed a lot. I still have PIE but little by little, this product is helping my skin to recover from those.
I don't have a problem with this product other than I can only get it online ( shopee). The price is very cheap and its very generous because intstead of usual 30ml, it has 40 ml. This can last me for two months!! Will definitely repurchase 💖

🌱I received this product from TIAM and Picky in exchange for my honest review🌱 🌱 Brand Story: TIAM aims to provide a younger customer with affordable, effective formulas with minimal unnecessary additives for a bright, fun skincare experience. 🌱 Claims: Alcohol-free, Paraben-free, Silicone-free, Sulfate-free, Allergen-free, Fragrance-free, Non-comedogenic, Oil-free, Fungal Acne-Safe, Eczema-Safe 🌱 10% Niacinamide and 2% Arbutin help fade dark spots and discolouration 🌱 Key Ingredients: Despite the bright yellow packaging, this is not a vitamin C serum! It’s a niacinamide serum, which provides brightening, but in a different format. 🌿Niacinamide (10%) - 10% Niacinamide is strong enough to provide brightening results from consistent use 🌿Arbutin (2%) - This is a strong enough concentration to see visible results 🌿Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate - Another dark-spot fading support star, this will help the other two perform best 🌱 Other ingredients: 🌿Lindera Erythrocarpa (Red-Fruit Spicebush) extract - Humectant, promotes wound healing 🌿Cornus Officinalis (Japanese Cornel) Fruit Extract - Skin conditioning 🌿Geranium Thunbergii (Thunberg's geranium) Extract - Potent antioxidant, may cause skin sensitivity 🌱 Ph: Unknown 🌱 Texture: A runny, clear serum. Tiam notes that as you go through the bottle, you may start to see white flecks in the serum. This is the high concentration of niacinamide returning to a solid state and is fine to use, just rub it with your fingers to disperse it. 🌱 Scent: Very faint, inoffensive cucumber scent. 🌱 Price / Amount: $24CA for 40mL, or $0.60/mL Pretty affordable 🌱 Application: This is a fairly sunny serum that absorbs fairly quickly. It isn’t sticky unless you use way too much. The scent is nice when you apply it, but is gone within minutes. Let’s talk about what you can expect for results. While niacinamide is a superstar on its own, the addition of a hefty 2% arbutin really kicks this serum into high gear. Both are proven by research to inhibit the production of melanin. Now, this is not the same as bleaching your skin. It does not remove existing melanin. These compounds prevent *new* melanin from forming. And so, as time goes on, your skin will turn over, producing less melanin and shedding melanated skin. That said, if you have naturally darker skin, you probably won’t see a dramatic shift in your skin tone. A product like this is intended for dark spots, post acne marks and summer freckles. It targets skin evenness, not overall skin tone. 🌱 Every day: Can be used morning or night. 10% niacinamide is quite strong if you have never used it before. You may feel some tingling or stinging when you first try it. If you are new to niacinamide, try every second or third day and work your way up. Arbutin can also sometimes cause skin tenderness in high concentrations. Just be aware and see if your skin feels more sensitive, you may want to reduce your everyday usage. 🌱 Notes: This formula contains a strong enough concentration of 3 effective pigment-fading ingredients, but in order for it to work, you must combine it with proper SPF every day so that new pigmentation does not form from UV exposure. The one thing this product cannot really help fade is post acne redness, also known as erythema. This is when your skin is healing from the inflammation of acne, and capillary blood flow has changed, which causes pink, red or purple colouration. This is not melanin and cannot be faded by brightening products. However, this redness will go away on its own, and it can heal a little faster with general skin health ingredients like niacinamide. 🌿Products with Arbutin are not recommended for use during pregnancy or breastfeeding 🌱 Packaging: Opaque glass bottle with a rubber dropper provides 100% UV protection. Which is good, even though niacinamide and arbutin are both fairly sturdy photostable ingredients. It’s best to protect your formula so it doesn’t expire early. 🌱 Accessibility: This product comes in a glass jar with a rubber dropper. The dropper has texture bumps to help with grip. I love the subtle embossing on the outer box that helps visually impaired users identify the product by feel. 🌱 Sustainability: The bottle and dropper are recyclable if washed. 🌱 Overall: If you are struggling with melanin spots from acne marks or freckles, this formula contains enough of the correct active ingredients to provide results. I cannot guarantee your results, but based on the scientific research, this is one of the best formulas you could choose right before prescription-only strength.
🌱 It will take time to see significant results from this product, at least 1 month 🌱 In order to get results, you MUST combine this with proper SPF every day 🌱 10% Niacinamide is very strong, beginners may feel some tingling or stinging to start

- This product comes with 10% niacinamide and 2% arbutin, which is good for fading post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. - The consistency is light and watery. It gets absorbed quite easily, and does not leave a tacky feeling after application. - This does not have any noticeable smell, which is great for those who are sensitive to scent. - Quite inexpensive, I got this for 700 php, which is roughly around $14 for 40 ml. - Helped gradually fade my months old existing PIH, and the newly formed ones from recent breakouts faded significantly. - LOVE THIS ❤️
- This may cause irritation to those with sensitive skin due to its high concentration of niacinamide. I, personally, have experienced minimal irritation from this product because I used it twice a day. So, I reduced my usage to once daily.

A serum with 10% Niacinamide and 2% Arbutin to brighten skin and lighten acne marks. It's made to blur the appearance of dark spots and correct uneven skin tone. The serum comes in a 40ml dark bottle to protect the contents from light. I own two bottles with the old design, the first one I purchased and the other one was won in a giveaway :) It has a watery, lightweight texture and spreads easily. My dry skin absorbs it very well if I am careful not to use too much product, so it's not sticky for me. It also is scentless which I like more than perfumed products Although it's a gentle serum and the percentage is lower than most Niacinamide serums (I often find 15% ones), this one is the most effective for me so far. Way better than the one from The Ordinary for example. That one was way too sticky and dried out my skin more than this one. I can recommend trying this! It has helped with brightening some of my lighter acne marks and hopefully will continue to do so
Update: I feel like it lessens its effectiveness after a few months of usage, I'll see if my second bottle will show the same results

I received this product for free from Picky and TIAM in exchange for my honest review. •ingredients: -water; -niacinamide (vitamin b3) 10%; -butylene glycol; -arbutin 2%; -allantoin; -etc •packaging: the packaging!!!! i really love love the yellow color on the packaging (the box and the bottle), it’s so cute and refreshing! probably the cutest skincare product that i’ve ever have and i never gonna throw the bottle away because it’s just so cute! •thoughts: vita b3 source is a serum that consist 2 of the most popular brightening agents which is 10% niacinamide and 2% arbutin, the texture is watery and absorb so fast into the skin, it has no fragrance or any scent. this serum claim is can helps fade dark spots and reduce dullness and uneven skin tone, and with just 2 times of using it (because my package is come late and i’m nearly on my deadline) i can see it kinda brightens my skin especially on my redness/PIE and surprisingly this serum is not irritating my sensitive skin even with the high percentage of niacinamide. usually i don’t really like niacinamide product because i think it didn’t really have effect on my skin/ doesn’t do it for me, same goes to arbutin but this product is different, because this serum combined niacinamide and arbutin so it have maximum brightening effect and to fades dark spots. i can feel that this product is becoming my holy grail but i’ll update it for the effects on my skin from time to time cause i’m not really having too much time to try it on my skin and see the effects for at least 2 weeks cause it’s near the deadline.
it’s a little bit sticky afterwards but i’m okay with that, not really a problem tbh and oh it’s hard to find tiam products on my country especially the vita b3 source serum so it’s hard for me to repurchase

My Opinion on this Vita B3 source is that it actually fadde and tone down the overall appearance of my acne scars and I believe it was the fastest at doing so, of any product like this That I have ever used! It absolutely has faded my dark spots, as it said it would. It really helped the overall look and feel to my skin and. It Absorbs great and didnt cause any irritation to my skin! I love that its not a super thick serum that don't absorb good .The quality of it really made me happy that Iv got to try it out. I absolutely will be purchasing this product in the future! It's packaging is very nice and high end! I love that the dropper works very nicely and constantly! Without any problems! Holy grail item forsure!!!
Nothing bad to say about it! I love it!
