SOME BY ME AHA BHA PHA MIRACLE TONER REVIEW

Searching for the low down on this cult K-Beauty toner? Stick around because today we're sharing our Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA Miracle Toner Review

With over 1.2 million sold in Korea alone, it's fairly safe to say that this "miracle toner" is a K-Beauty best-seller. Beloved by everyone from beauty bloggers, magazine editors and Korean celebrities alike. 

Even the Daily Mailgot in on the action, reporting the results! 

But if you don’t regularly get in front of a camera, does this toner live up to the hype?

Let's take a look at whether this "Miracle Toner" is worthy of a spot in your beauty routine. 

 

What Is It?

Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA Miracle Toner

It's a chemical exfoliant toner formulated with a variety of skincare acids. It works to gently remove impurities from the skin without irritation.

The brand claims that it "restores skin to its normal condition."

 

What Does It Do?

If you’ve never used skincare acids before, you’re in for a treat.

Unlike other types of exfoliants (cough apricot scrub, cough) exfoliating acids work on a chemical level.

They can be more gentle than traditional exfoliants because they're less abrasive. 

Instead of sloughing away dead skin manually, they work on a chemical level to get rid of impurities, dead skin and anything that might be clogging up pores.

What is a Chemical Exfoliant?

Usually, chemical exfoliant products contain one or two of the following common skincare acids:

AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids), which remove dead skin cells and impurities on the surface of the skin.

BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acids), which targets oil and sebum-based impurities

PHA (Poly Hydroxy Acids), which both exfoliates and prevents loss of hydration.

Some By Mi’s AHA BHA PHA Miracle Toner, as you might guess from the name, contains all three. This gives you a great intro and taste of all of them.

How Do You Use It?

AHA BHA PHA Miracle Toner can be used just like any other toner.

After cleansing, apply it onto your face. Because its watery, we would suggest using it with a cotton pad. Simply swipe it over your face and pat in any excess product for increased absorption.

What Results Will You Notice From Using It?

With daily use you’ll notice clearer, more radiant and healthier looking skin.

 

Who Should Use It?

Although the brand says its suitable for all skin types, after testing it extensively on our team (who have a range of different skin types) we've concluded that it's probably better suited to those with:

  • Acne prone skin
  • Oily skin
  • Combination skin
