TIAM My Little Pore Fix Source was purchased by Cosmeperks.
I was teased by a lot of good reviews of this serum on some beauty forums. Yes, Tiam My Little Pore Fix Source became popular lately, well at least in my country. Even I met this lovely blue baby like everywhere when I did online window shopping. And now, I am delighted to share my review as I got a chance to try this serum.
By the way, aside from many good reviews over there, I was also interested with the key ingredients of this serum. Tannin, Sesaflash, Centella Asiatica (oh, I love this!), and Conalbumin. If you haven’t yet known about the benefits of these ingredients, read below. They sound very promising! And since I have issue with large pores (also oily T-zone and blemishes) thus I put a big expectation on this serum. Let’s see what kind of result it gives!

TIAM My Little Pore Fix Source Review:
I must say that I really love the whole packaging of this product, both the outer box and the bottle itself. Honestly, it is not pricey compared with other Korean serum products, but the packaging says something else. It looks so professional, classy yet cute at the same time. The light blue theme is very pretty and fresh.
The outer box is so thick and sturdy (I think it’s the thickest cardboard box I’ve ever got from a beauty product). The box comes in a light blue color with all information of the product in English and Korean. The design is actually very simple but it brings a fresh yet professional look.
The house of the serum itself is made from a thick and clear frosty glass. It is somewhat heavy and looks classy. The transparent glass makes us easily know how much of the product we have inside. And to take out the serum itself, this product provides a squeeze dropper which is very easy to use and, of course, so hygienic.
The first thing I noticed when took out the bottle of this serum from the box was the scent. It’s so strong. Even I could sniff it without opening the bottle (imagine how strong it is). They put ‘fragrance’ on the last of the ingredients list, it should be the least content of this serum, but in fact it smells very strong. Actually, it’s a nice and unique scent, a mix of mint and sweet citrus. But since it is quite strong, some of us may be offended.
Now, let’s meet the serum. I thought it was the glass bottle which had a light blue color but actually it is the serum itself. It’s not captured clearly with my camera, but in real the serum has a light baby blue tone, and I think it looks so fresh. It comes in a lightweight, watery consistency but has a light gel texture which is very soft and not that runny. The serum glides on easily and smoothly. It also absorbs quickly onto my skin.
I’m very pleased with the finish of this Tiam My Little Pore Fix Source. It gives a fresh feeling when applied onto skin. And it doesn’t leave sticky nor greasy feeling after the serum absorbed completely.
When I tried this serum on my hand, it left a matte-supple finish but when I applied on my face, it does leave a little glowing finish (understandable since the weather is quite hot here thus my skin becomes a bit more oily quickly). If you have dry skin, the finish will be more matte-supple.
This serum moisturizes my skin nicely and helps to control sebum as well. Though it gives a little sheen on my skin, but it doesn’t make my skin looks dull or greasy and it can last about 3 hours before my skin naturally starts to be oily. Unfortunately it doesn’t provide a brightening effect.
At the first 3-5 days, I got some tiny pimples after using this serum. And I was like, errr… should I stop using it? But thankfully, it was just a temporary reaction (I’m so relieved, haha). I guess my skin needed time for adaptation. Now I’ve been using this serum about 3 weeks and I only use it on my night skincare routine.
This serum is actually not heavy at all but however I prefer my Innisfree New Green Tea Sead Serum for my morning skincare since its benefits to brighten up my skin and prevent acne.
Tiam My Little Pore Fix Source does its job well for making my skin smoother and supple. It gives decent moisture for my oily-combi skin without leaving too much sheen on the surface of my face. Unfortunately this product doesn’t grant my wish yet. I don’t see any good things happened to my large pores.
I really got nothing from its main claim for pore tightening, even after using it for 3 weeks. There is no improvement of the appearance of my large pores. Well, I know enlarged pores issue is not something that can be solved instantly thus let’s think positive, maybe this serum needs more time to tighten my (really) big pores.
I will finish this serum until the last drop since it doesn’t cause breakouts on my face but I don’t think to repurchase it. I will try to find out other product that (really) works to tighten my big pores (any recommendation, guys?) But however, this is a good serum for oily and combo skin type as it is weightless and helps to control sebum while delivering a right amount of moisture onto skin.
