Korean Viral Skincare : Some By Mi Review, Does it really work?


Assalammualaikum.
Few weeks back, a video about a Korean lady curing her acne problems in 30 days by using a Korean Skincare Brand, known as Some by Mi has been viral ed all over the place. She also managed to had a clear face, with no scars for that short time (30 days is a short time yaya for me it was a short time) I was swayed by the advertisement and i have been dreaming to try this product since then lol (acne usually grow when i'm getting near to that "time" of the month, and i am in the need to treat my acne problems due to something i will share with you guys haha but not now for sure!).

One fine day, i managed to put my hands on Some by Mi products and tried them by my own, I am the happiest person now as i achieved my current wish list haha i would like to share my view on these products to my dearest reader .... whether it really works... just like in the ads? or it was actually an over exaggeration about the result, just for marketing purposes. Ah haa!  If you would like to know the result.. please keep reading !

Some by Mi 

I managed to get Some by Mi skincare range from Korean Beauty Luxury: AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Cleansing Bar, AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Serum, AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner, and AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Cream. AHA BHA and PHA works effectively as chemical exfoliator, that helps to ease the process of removing dead skin cells from the skin. (some might not know about AHA, BHA and PHA i will explain it to you in the next post no worries :D)

Short explanation:
AHA: Removes impurities and dry flakes from skin surface.
BHA: Exfoliates pores, removing clogged impurities and sebum.
PHA: Stops losing moisture from skin, dissolving dead skin cell.

Today is my day 4 trying Some by Mi skincare. It was too soon for me to do a review, so i think it is best for me to just share with you some of the details of the products and my short review on its performance (haha u know what i mean by performance right?). For your info, this skincare range is suitable for those who are having oily, dry and sensitive skin.

First impression: there's a stingy feelings and my skin felt tight at the and i have not grows any pimples after usage (some people might breakout at the beginning but i guess i am lucky), so i keep on using it. Hoping to see more changes on my acne scars as it looks like it is fading, but still there lol
