Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Soap

Cleansing Bar Packaging:
Some By Mi Cleansing Bar comes in a box with a green and white color scheme. The soap itself is wrapped in plastic and cling wrap. I don't really know why they have to wrap the soap with a clingwrap and then wrapped it again with a plastic wrap though?

Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Cleansing Bar Texture


Cleansing Bar Texture:
The soap has a nice gentle scent and if you use handmade soap often you might notice that it has a similar texture like it is quite soft, melts easily and I can definitely use it all up because store bought soap usually gets really hard and it won't foams easily  when it gets smaller. I like to use a buble maker to make a nice gentle foam that feels good on skin.



My Experience with the Cleansing Bar:
I quite like this cleansing bar and it is currently on my second favorite after Bio Talk Detox soap (which I haven't made a review yet (^_^)!). I never had any irritation while using it and my skin also didn't feel tight and dry afterwards which is great!! Oh btw this cleansing bar last really long! I started using it in September and after 3 months it only reduced about 2/3 so I reckon I can get another 1 or 2 months before it's gone.

Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner Texture

Toner Texture:
Some by Mi Miracle Toner has a watery texture with a really faint minty scent. It's not tacky at all, absorbs quite well and TBH my skin felt really nice and quite hydrating afterwards.



My Experience with the Toner:
I use the Some By Mi Miracle Toner on my morning and night routine and about once a week I also did a cotton mask with the toner. I've tried other exfoliating toner before like the Secret Key Hyaluron Soft Micro Peel Toner but I felt like the Secret Key is too light for me and it also didn't have acne healing properties like this one. It's also quite gentle on my skin and I have no irritation or allergic reaction while using it. The other exfoliating toner that I've tried aside from SomeByMi is The Ordinary Glycolic Acid  7% Toning Solution which I can't use often because it's not as gentle as this one. So if you're looking for exfoliating toner with acne healing properties then you can probably try this one.

My Experience with the Serum:
I'm having a bit of a love and hate relationship with the serum because it tends to make my skin oilier during the day maybe because it's slightly drying on my skin so it produces more sebum to counter it?? But after I change my moisturizer though I didn't have that problem but I only found out about it after I'm using it for about two weeks which is frustrating. Also from all of the Some By Mi Miracle Series the serum is the only products that gave me occasional breakout and took more time for my skin to adjust.

Overall Experience with Some By Mi Miracle Series:
So I was having a pretty stubborn acne which comes and leaves in the exact spot for about a months or so and decided to try these three products. And.... Since I'm pretty emotional about it I use all three products at the same time instead of introducing each product one by one and letting my skin to adjust first.

The first week I felt that my skin looks nice and my acne does looks like it's getting better, I'm not having any redness and some of my clogged pore areas also feels smoother. Going onto my second week I'm having a few hormonal breakout and some on my forehead so I thought okay am I purging or what?? But I don't wanna admit my defeat so I'm continuing it and on the 3rd week all hell breaks loose!! I have more acne and they look red and angry so I stop.

After deciding that I need to stop using those 3 products altogether I go back on using my usual skincare and changing my moisturizer to a heavier. So what I did was using the Cleansing Bar for 10 days first, adding the toner for 10 days and finally the serum for 10 days. So the overall trial period is around two months or so.

Anyway after using both the cleansing bar and toner and changing the moisturizer I notice that I don't have more breakout and my skin gradually calms and no more breakout. So after using both cleansing bar and toner for 10 days I finally add the serum into my skincare routine and I'm having breakout at the 2nd DAY!! I felt like I wanna cry... Like why won't my skin understands... Didn't you know how much time, money and efforts I spend to take care of you!! I totally almost have a nervous breakdown. 

So day two... Breakout... Darn it... Since I already bought it I kept using it to see if my skin will adjust to the product and thankfully my skin adjust to the serum after about a week and gradually look better. It didn't look as flawless as the girl in the Instagram videos but for the acne and lighter acne marks the Some By Mi really helps taking care of them provided the serum won't breaks you out at first #LOL. As for the acne scar I don't think it'll help but who know? Maybe in the long run?? I'd better take my chance with fractional laser for the acne scar though.

Pheww... almost the end of my review so here are some take home messages:
  1. If you want to try the whole series tried introducing it one by one into you skincare routine instead of using them all at once.
  2. For exfoliating products like the Some By Mi Miracle series even though they claim to be moisturizing try changing you moisturizer to a heavier one or adds a hydrating serum to your routine. Why? If you skin is dehydrated it'll produced more sebum and in turns you'll have more breakouts. So hydration is key!!
  3. Be patient and takes note of your skin. There's no one products that can cures all of your skin problems. Tackle one at first and if you feel like you can get the hang of it then you can go to the next one otherwise it'll be too overwhelming.

Last but not least here's a short video that I gather from my Insta Stories.. You can check the stories on my Instagram @crochetandlipstick. Oh and the 30 days in this video means 30 days of using the 3 products (Cleansing Bar, Toner and Serum), but the overall trial period is around two months like I have mentioned previously.

  11. OMG, skin care regime is always challenging moreover if you are trying to add some new products. Sometimes, skin reaction is just too hard to handle. But luckily you can maintain it to a better skin. #KBBVmember
