I was introduced to PHA last year and I instantly fell in love with it. I liked the gentle exfoliation it provided and how moisturising it was. I have been looking for PHA based products but nothing I found was affordable. Infact I found 1 PHA serum under £20(I have this and a review will follow). After been obsessed with Asian skincare, I found a lot of PHA based products and affordable products! I started with this: the Some by Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 days starter kit which is one of their bestselling collection. I picked this up from YesStyle and started using it right away.
Some by Mi AHA BHA PHA Miracle Cleansing Bar is part of the 30 days clear skin challenge which they promise better skin in 30 days. I have the trial size and I have been using it for about 3 weeks, I think I have enough to last me another week
Apart from African black soap which I was using for my face many years back, I have never used a cleansing bar as a face wash. I use the Some by Mi AHA BHA PHA Miracle Cleansing Bar as my PM 2nd cleanser and also a few times as an AM cleanser. I have experienced no irritation from this bar soap. It doesn’t have a strong scent
The bar soap lathers really well and easily and I find it to be an effective cleanser. I follow the 60-second rule when cleansing my face and after rinsing this off my skin feels clean but it doesn’t feel stripped. I feel like it also deep cleanses my pores. The bar (the whole line) also has added tea tree oil for anti-bacterial properties. I was very surprised with how effective it was and I actually loved it as both an AM & PM cleanser.
In terms of leaving my skin better, I experienced a lot of hormonal breakouts and texture in March and whilst the soap didn’t prevent it, I feel like my skin looked better every time I cleaned it. The soap left my skin looking smoother and softer but didn’t have an effect on the breakouts.
The trial size has actually lasted me the full 4 weeks. Towards the end of the 4 weeks, I did realise the soap did not lather as much but this is because there was only a tiny bit left
I would 100% recommend this bar soap as a cleanser. When I used it twice a day, my skin didn’t feel stripped at all, I have normal to combination skin. This is an effective cleanser and I think oily skin would really like this. This doesn’t mention the conc of acids in the soap, but I did not experience any stinging with this so I would this is quite low. I am also very surprised by how long the trial size lasted me 4 weeks! I will repurchase this soon- this would make a fantastic travel cleanser! I am planning on repurchasing soon!
They have a Vitamin C bar soap I am currently eyeing up!
Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA Miracle Cleansing bar is £10.32 on YesStyle*
