Some by Mi Review 2018: Miracle Toner, Soap, and Serum

Giftbox Philippines, an official distributor of K-Beauty products in the Philippines, has made this Some by Mi review possible. The company hasn’t paid me to do the review. However, they generously sent me the products to try.

If you’re not familiar with Some by Mi, I’m going to give you a brief introduction of what it is.

Some by Mi’s range of products include Miracle Cleansing Bar, Miracle Toner, and Miracle Serum.

All three contain AHA, BHA, and PHA.

AHA or Alpha Hydroxy Acid

acts as a mild exfoliant that deals with the uppermost layers of the skin. Benefits include brighter, hydrated, more refined, and smoother skin. Water soluble and highly recommended for people with normal to dry skin. Proven to deal with sun damage as well.

BHA or Beta Hydroxy Acid

also a mild exfoliant and functions the same with AHA. Oil soluble and is recommended for people with normal to oily skin which are common targets of clogs, blemishes, bumps, and enlarged pores. Added to its benefits is it can calm skin irritations and can deal with sensitive skin which is prone to milia and rosacea.

PHA or Polyhydroxy Acid

the gentlest option from the three. Has large molecular structures that keeps it from penetrating deeper to the skin which avoids irritating sensitive skin. Also acts as a humectant (water-absorbing property) that is a perfect natural moisturizing agent. If your skin reacted to BHA and AHA before, this is the most welcome option if you still want to exfoliate.

Let’s continue this Some by Mi review with the promises.

Some by Mi Review by Amanda of Filipinow

I have nothing bad to say about the packaging. The products look medicated and of great quality.

The sleek and modern design is very appealing to someone who is wishing for better skin and disposition in life.

Box, bottles, and everything are not of flimsy quality.

Some by Mi Miracle Cleansing Bar Review

The scent is reminiscent of the prescribed soaps that you’ll typically get from skin care clinics; very tea tree, relaxing, and medicated. Similar to the scent of a Neutrogena cleansing bar.

Can literally last up to 3 months or more even if used twice daily on the face.

Probably my least favorite item out of the three. I don’t like how my skin feels tight and gets a stinging sensation on active acne after every wash.

Those 2 are tell-tale signs that it wasn’t formulated for sensitive skin.

Your skin barrier will be damaged from the strength of this one.

Contains niacinamide which helps even out skin tone, gets rid of dull skin, improves pore appearance, and reduces wrinkles and fine lines.

Also has 10,000 PPM of Real Tea Tree Oil which calms acne and helps eradicate it through its natural anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.

This one should be avoided if you have sensitive skin.

Let’s move on to my favorites from this Some by Mi review.

Some by Mi Miracle Toner Review

Has clear color and smells similar with the cleansing bar.

I didn’t expect that a 150ml toner used twice daily would last a month but it did.

I’d say that you’d get around 40-days usage from this one.

For some reason, the toner doesn’t sting as much as the bar on active acne.

Also gets rid of the tight feeling and makes my skin immediately calm from irritation.

Contains AHA, BHA, PHA, Tea Tree Oil, and Niacinamide. I feel that this is best used after the storm.

If you’re not dealing with active acne and want to get rid of marks, buy it.

For some reason, the formulation of this one is a lot gentler than the cleanser.

Some by Mi Miracle Serum Review

Last but not the least item on this Some by Mi review.

I think I’ve fallen in love and if I’ll be repurchasing something from Some by Mi, the serum would be IT.

Doesn’t contain Niacinamide but has 14.5% Centella Asiatica which is a very effective ingredient in dealing with active acne and scarring.

If pimples are your main concern, invest on this.

Comes with a hygienic dropper which also avoids product wastage.

Serum is of light green tint and isn’t oily or heavy. Leaves the skin feeling hydrated but not icky.

For something that’s only 50ml, it lasts up to 40 days when used twice daily.

No skin irritation will be felt and leaves the skin amply moisturized.

Some by Mi Review Final Words

I’ve used all three products twice a day religiously for 30 days. I didn’t skip even if I had fever, coughs, and colds while in the duration of the challenge.

You can see my journey through my dedicated Instagram Story Highlight.

Currently, my skin is in better shape. Albeit its efficacy, I feel as though it would be a never-ending cycle because the Miracle Cleansing Bar irritates my skin which in turn makes me grow new acne.


  • Less acne and blackheads
  • Brighter and suppler skin
  • Less rosacea and dry patches


  • New acne and whiteheads still grow (maybe I’m still in the purging stage or NOT)
  • Cleansing bar is harsh
  • Sensitizes skin and cannot go under the sun

If you don’t have sensitive skin, try the whole set.

However, if we share the same skin type, stick with the toner and serum.

Cleanser = 800 PHP

Toner = 1,100 PHP

Serum = 1,750 PHP
