Some by Mi AHA-BHA-PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner Review

by - Oktober 05, 2018

Have you heard Some by Mi AHA-BHA-PHA 30 days Miracle Toner? It's Korean skincare and recently I see this toner several times at some instagram ads or beauty forum and it is became hype among beauty enthusiast.

Some by Mi AHA-BHA-PHA Miracle Toner is an exfoliating toner that claims as effective exfoliator to leave skin cleaner and more radiant than before. It contains AHA and BHA which famous ingredients as chemical exfoliators. AHA can help improving skin texture by dissolving the upper layer of dead skin cells, BHA can help resolve blackheads and milia.

Actually it is first time for me to hear about PHA. When I search information about it on google, I found that PHA is work exclusively on the skin's surface without interfere the delicate layers that lie beneath and this help ensures optimum skin renewal with minimal irritation. This is a good news for sensitive skin types!

About my skin
I have combination to oily skin type, and little bit sensitive. I easily got my skin feels itchy or getting red because some skincare ingredients that not suitable for my skin, but I still interest this toner because they claimed this miracle toner is formulated without 20 harm ingredients that easily found in another skincare.

It is a simple box packaging dominated by white and dark green colored. They highlight their claim function that this toner is effective for pore care, whitening, and moisturizing.

There is Some by Mi hologram sticker which sealed the box. We can check the authenticity with installed hidden tag apps from your android phone or iphone. Use the apps to scan the sticker to check the authenticity. I bought the authentic one!

The toner bottle inside is semi transparent, so I can easily see the amount left.

It also has sealed layer inside to prevent the toner leaked or contaminated before being used.

Results & My Thoughts
I used this toner using facial cotton, and it gives soothing sensation for my face. My skin can easily absorbs the toner and leaves me with a semi-dewy look. It doesn't make my face feels ithcy or getting red. I think it helps my skincare routine (essence and face cream) easily absorbed. It also really help clean my face. Even after face-washing there is still some dirt stick on the facial cotton.

However I found this toner not moisturizing enough, so I  still using my face cream after using this toner.

After one week using this toner, I didn't notice changes on my faces. It doesn't help my dark spot or  one cystic acne on my nose (I just have one acne and it appeared before using this toner). Sorry I do not have some pict that show the progress since the pictures are accidentaly removed from my phone.

On the second week I found my blackheads are reduced and my face looks more bright. My pore also looks smaller I guess the pore-care is true. However the cystic acne is still there and not getting better.

On my third week, my cystic acne got to surface (ripen) a bit and I popped the acne (please do not imitate this, since it not hygiene and getting help from the professional its better and more safe). I compress it using this toner exactly after popped it. It soothing my new acne scars and it helps my new acne scar dried and getting better, although there is still not full recovered.

My dark spot still there, it's getting brighter a little bit but I do not think this toner can remove the dark spot perfectly in 30 days. But there are some good impovement! I just using this toner around three weeks (21 days) I will use this toner much longer and update it later.

This toner is paraben free,alcohol free, and sulfate free. I think this toner will suitable for any skin type.
