Review: Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner and Miracle Cream

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

Works as effective exfoliator to leave skin cleaner and more radiant than before.

  • Skin Exfoliation
  • Pore Tightening
  • Hydration
  • Brighter Skin Tone

Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Cream

A lightweight gel cream moisturizer perfect for all skin types especially for oily and acne-prone.

  • Skin Barrier
  • Damage Care
  • Skin Soothing
  • Anti-inflammatory

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.

*updates 13/11/2018*

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.

August Favourites

Briefly about my highlights for the month of August on beauty products, drama, and food. (skip music this time – just because…)

Beauty

I’m still struggling with finding the right facial wash for my skin concerns (blackheads/whiteheads/pores/dull skin) now but so far this Simple Moisturising Facial Wash is good. Doesn’t give me breakouts and no tight-feeling on skin after washing.

Around July, during my 2 weeks of no hair-wash confinement, I got this terrible itchy scalp that leads to the worst dandruff experience I ever had, and also hairfall problem. I was about to buy the organic coconut shampoo but was sceptical about its smell later so I got this Faith Fleur Shampoo anyway. It smells soooo good! Just about two times hair wash in a week, I was really surprised that my dandruff were no longer visible. Of course there’s still hairfall but let just have a little faith alright! As for the Faith Fleur Serum, it smells nice too! I didn’t purchase the conditioner together with the shampoo because I’m just one lazy lady here to apply conditioner. So this serum kinda helps my frizzy tangled hair. Hair feels so soft.

I don’t really care about UV protection before until I realized I’m not getting young and my skin looks older than my age. *sad but true* So I saw there’s free sample for this Biore UV Aqua Rich, and signed up for it immediately! It’s only 15gm and I’ve been using this for more than a month now. Yup! Just a little amount is enough to cover my whole big face lol. I really like the watery essence that doesn’t feel sticky like other usual sunscreen. Sure I’m gonna buy the full size soon.

Drama

If you read my July favorites blog post, I’ve stated that one of my favorite drama was Sunny Again Tomorrow and it still my favorite up to the month of August because it’s still going on. There’s a new one though:

30 But Still 17 – A 17 years old girl fell into a coma after an accident. 13 years later, she wakes up from her coma and she’s 30 years old but her mental-age is still that of a 17 years old. And…aah I can’t wait to finish this drama.

Food That I Cook

Black Pepper Beef – Definitely one my favorite dish that I cook! I don’t really dare to cook beef worrying that the meat will harden instead of tender. Fortunately it was tender and of course juicy!

Penne Carbonara – I looove carbonara! It’s the opposite for my husband so I got the whole pot of carbonara alone! Hehe.

That’s a wrap for August Favorites! Now it’s time to read all your interesting blog post 😊

Wishing us all to have a great moment on this new month! 🌸

July Favorites

It’s the last day of July. Time flies. A lot has happened this month and it’s went just too quick for me. Anyway, I’m in a good progress of letting go all those sad and painful memories.

Let’s begin talking ’bout my July favorites, shall we?!

Beauty

Aloe Vera Soothing Gel

Got this as a gift from my aunt from her recent trip to Korea. Thanks! I know it’s not something new for some of you and I’ve seen this being sell here a lot too. Now this aloe vera soothing gel here, was really helpful during this hot weather. And I remember during our last trip to the island before, I got a terrible sunburnt and I thanked myself for not forgetting to bring along this soothing gel. Applied it all over my face and body. It’s relief the tingling burning straight away. Even my husband use this too since he dives really often recently and got bad sunburn due to the hot weather now.

Simple Soothing Facial Toner

I only officially started using this on the 2nd week of July and I think I love it. My sister got a really bad skin condition now (teenager hormones sucks i know) and she barely can use any skincare on her face except this one. She told me it helps in reducing the redness of her face due to the acne and it doesn’t have that ‘tight’ feeling like other toner she ever used before. So I bought one and so far it’s good. No breakouts.

St. Ives Apricot Scrub

Received this from St. Ives Malaysia early this month, thank you! I love this scrub, although it said the exfoliation factor is in a ‘deep’ level instead of gentle or moderate, it doesn’t feel like it’s going to scratch my skin upon massaging. I loveeee the smell too! ❀

Korean TV Series

Sunny Again Tomorrow

I do watched a lot of movies on HBO & fox movies (idk why I don’t subscribe Netflix? lol) but this korean drama is the one that makes me stop doing anything and sit in front of the tv every 7.25pm. It’s not that ‘up’ show compared to any other drama but there’s just something I love about this show. Or maybe I’m the type that won’t follow the ‘trend’? πŸ˜… contoh: saya tidak tingu tu husna πŸ˜‚

What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim

Okay, this one I admit I started watching it because lots of my friends posted the highlighted clip on Facebook and it’s kind of interesting and funny too. I’m only on episode 6 though while they’re already finished watching this and move on to another new drama πŸ˜†

Songs (some old some new)

  1. Bazzi – Dreams
  2. Khalid ft. Billie Eilish – Lovely
  3. Folly Rae – Sniper
  4. GJan – One More Drink
  5. Witt Lowry ft. GJan – Phone
  6. Reyko – Spinning Over You

So that’s it…nothing extra special on my favourites πŸ˜… anyway, wishing you guys have a great time and don’t forget to smile 😁

Thanks for reading lovelies! πŸ’—

…yayy finally it’s raining!
