If you’ve read my Today’s Journal #8, I mentioned about this skincare briefly and by now I’ve been using it for 30 days.
First of all, I’m thankful to be picked as one of the participants in this Miracle Review Campaign; received free two items, test it and give it a review at the end of this month.
My skin type & condition: Combination, dull skin, dark spots, open pores, blackhead
To begin with, I don’t normally have pimples except around my menstrual cycles but I guess due to over exposed to the sun while camping few months ago, without any layer of protection on my face (I know I’m bad) my forehead got a little dry than ever and its trigger the pimples to go out!
The Skincare Claims:
Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner

Application: After cleansing, I apply the toner on my face and neck with cotton pad. Then I apply the cream.
My thoughts: On the first day when I applied this toner, it stings but only on both sides of my nose. At the end of the first week, I realized some of the tiny acne scars were gone. Second week, less pimples on my forehead and my dark spots were lightened a bit (not sure if it’s from this product or from my current intensive brightening serum?). I can say, my skin looks more radiant. In week three, my skin purge! But not that bad though, the pimples on my forehead came back and it started with bumps then redness with a little pus. I decided to let the cotton pad sit on that area for a few seconds, and after 3-4 days they started to dry up. Final thoughts, I still have those tiny bumps and they’re actually a lot than before or maybe because it’s 2 days to my expected menstrual cycle. I don’t think I can achieve a miraculous flawless skin in just 30 days with these two items. Perhaps I need more time if I wish to continue with this product.
Pros: Purges the acne but later will heal and minimizes pore for smoother skin. One bottle of toner probably will last for more than a month. Mine still have about 80% left.
Cons: A bit drying for my combination skin type (dry forehead, oily nose) so I need to layer a hydrating toner.
Since my previous skincare doesn’t do any wonders too, I think I’m going to continue using these product for my evening routine.
I did includes these two items for my evening routine and suddenly I got a shocking reaction since two days ago! I got more of that tiny bumps or maybe they’re now rashes because it’s so itchy, red and uncomfortable! Even my skin type is now changing to dry from combination/oily. What makes me so sure this is allergic reaction and not purging? It’s painful! Itchy but at the same time it’s stinging all over my face. There’s no way I would continue again. Perhaps AHA BHA PHA does not suit me. My best advice, do your patch test before anything else.
