Blogger Mail | TIA'M Hyaluronic Water Plumping Serum

Saturday 26 January 2019

Before I dive into the product, let me just talk a little bit about Hyraluronic Acid; the star ingredient. As I started doing the whole 1-Day-1-Pack (pack here means sheet mask) around late 2017, I've noticed that most sheet masks that I've ran through; especially hydrating and moisturising ones contain one ingredient in common which is Hyaluronic Acid. Known to its functions in making the skin nicely hydrated, looking plumped and glowing (as if there's a film of water on your skin), Hyaluronic Acid has the ability to hold 1,000 times its weight in moisture so now that you know what to expect from this product, let's get started!

TIA'M Hyaluronic Water Plumping Serum

About 3 weeks ago, I've received the above serum from the brand's global Instagram page @tiam_global through their Reviewer Recruit Event that concluded last month and it's the first hyaluronic acid serum I ever tried therefore I am so excited to see what this serum can do to help my currently dehydrated skin thanks to hospital dry and cold environment that I'm enduring for the past few weeks!

But first, let's go to basic details on the serum.

Product Description:
  • A hydrating serum that infused with the Hyaluronic Acid Complex to instantly boost the moisture level of dehydrated skin.
  • Blended with lotus extract and panthenol to prevent moisture loss while leaving the skin feeling plumped.
  • This versatile formula can be mixed with liquid foundation or BB cream for a hydrating glow. 

How to Use:
Apply 2 to 3 drops onto the face after prepping the skin with toner.
Gently massage the face in circular motions and let absorb.

Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Extract, Betaine, 1-2,-hexandoil, Panthenol, HA-5 (Hyaluronic Acid, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate (Macromolecule & Micromolecule), Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer) 1,500ppm, Polysorbate 60, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Allantoin, Hydrxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloydlimethyl Taurate Coplymer, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Xanthan gum, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil

Ingredients Highlight:

6 different types of Hyaluronic Acid in various sizes (high and low molecules) that penetrate deep into the different skin depths and hydrate the skin from inside and out.
  • Surface of the skin (Pulling Moisture and Forming Moisture Barrier):
    • Sodium Hyaluronate (macromolecules)
      • Attracts moisture to the surface of the skin and forms moisture barrier to prevent any future moisture loss.
  • Epidermis
    • Sodium Hyaluronate (Micromolecule)
      • Provides rich moisture to the epidermis and provides your skin with a continuous burst of intense hydration.
    • Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer
      • Gradually releases abundant moisture from the epidermis to keep skin hydrated throughout the day.
  • Dermis (deepest layer of the skin)
    • Hyaluronic Acid
      • Hydrates deep into the layers of dermis to increase in water density and keep your skin firm.
    • Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate
      • Hydrates deep into the dermis layer of the skin and provides deep hydration.
    • Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid
      • Locks in moisture and penetrates deep into the dermis layer of the skin to enhance the look of facial volume i.e. plump up the skin!

Lotus Extract - known for its moisturising, nourishing function also improve skin elasticity.

Panthenol - Enhance skin barrier.

Now, let's go to the packaging!

The product came within a box and with other sides having Korean product description, one of the side has English product information including the ingredients list. 

The product came in that glass bottle with a simple label sticker. I love its simplicity.


At the back of the small bottle, there's a double sticker which at the inner sticker, the brand printed a tip and direction on using the serum in English. 

Of course, the popular method to dispense a product chosen by beauty companies these days would be using a pipette. It's easy and much more affordable compared to pump, I'm guessing.



The serum is both watery and slightly runny. It's also have a slightly milkish colour to it but once applied; evened out, it'll go nice and transparent with a little sheen to it.

The finish is just nicely moisturised-looking and I don't feel tackiness or anything. I usually don't care much for essence, serum even ampoules finishes as I'm going to apply moisturiser on top anyway so even if it's tacky, it's alright. I normally don't have wait times between application but I've noticed that the finish actually doesn't dries down or anything after several minutes and it does feel slightly heavy on skin so I'd suggest for you to massage a little bit more before moving onto your next step for your skincare routine.

Hyaluronic Acid can be combined its usage with vitamin products especially Vitamin C-based product to enhance the result; hydrated, moisturised skin with brighter complexion. I haven't got any Vitamin C yet as I've just got brightening serum for that but I'll be sure to update you guys once I did. 

Overall, I do like this serum. After using it almost everyday for the past few weeks, I can totally see how it helps with my dehydrated facial area which is U-Zone i.e cheeks to jawline and I'm going to continue on using the product to really see how it works after I actually finished a single bottle and boy, I think I'd be looking forward to purchase another bottle for this as it's fun to mix this serum product around with brightening skincare products that tend to dry out my skin after using them for years or maybe it's just a sign that I need to incorporate more heavier, thicker, moisturising, nourishing i.e. anti-aging skincare products in my daily skincare routines. With that said, I seriously need to amp up my day skincare routine as I'm being lazy with just 3 to 5 products every single day for the past year.

I guess that's all from me so do let me know your thoughts on this product and tell me if you have tried a similar product to this by leaving comments down below.

I'll be seeing you guys on my next post. Annyeong~
