With the Internet in the palm of your hands, there are hundreds of beauty blogs, YouTube channels, and forums that will tell you exactly how to zap a zit. You might have gone through all kinds of trial-and-error methods, and, more often than not, you get instant but temporary results. Our advice? Think long-term: You don’t want to merely sizzle out those spots, you want to make sure they’re gone for good! In other words, seek a well-curated routine that’s both active and preventive—and stick to it! Save yourself the Google search, and see the lineup that has our seal of approval:
Presenting: the Some By Mi Miracle line. With a roster of 4 anti-acne formulas, this bestselling lineup comprises an entire basic routine. They’ve been designed to precision, made to target active breakouts, and stop future pimples from surfacing. Their claim to fame? All-natural, anti-inflammatory ingredients. Boosted with botanical compounds, every product in this roundup nourishes skin cells as much as it targets and fights acne.
There’s been a ton of online praise and clamor about these products. Bloggers and skin experts claim that this entire routine provides visible results in 30 days. So, with the help of our officemate Kathy (who has an oily and acne-prone skin type), we decided to test the hype and do a 2-week trial ourselves! Ready to witness the miracle? Scroll!
THE MIRACLE ROUTINE
STEP 1: CLEANSE WITH THE MIRACLE BAR SOAP
This cleansing bar kicks off your routine by effectively removing dirt and debris from the skin’s surface. It’s fortified with 10,000pppm of tea tree, so it banishes bacteria and soothes any signs of swelling or redness. It also serves as a skin conditioner, thanks to the moisturizing properties of olive oil and argan oil.
HOW TO USE IT: On wet skin, gently roll massage onto your problem areas, such as your cheeks and T-zone. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
Shop it here for P749 (limited time only).
STEP 2: TONE WITH THE MIRACLE TONER
Now that you have a freshly cleansed canvas to work with, opt for a refining toner to help prevent overactive pores from producing excess sebum. This formula is enriched with AHA, BHA, and PHA, which are plant-based acids that gently exfoliate away dead cells, and purge any blackheads or whiteheads.
HOW TO USE IT: Using a cotton pad, simply swipe the product across your face and neck.
Shop it here for P990 (limited time only).
STEP 3: TREAT WITH THE 30 DAYS MIRACLE SERUM
Your cleanser and toner help purify the skin, but your serum provides you with essential nutrients that actively repair damage. The super star ingredient of this particular restorative? Centella Asiatica Extract—which is a known anti-acne powerhouse that shrinks pimples, calms inflammation, and stimulates collagen production.
HOW TO USE IT: Dispense 3 to 4 drops of serum onto the palm of your hand, then massage onto your face. Pat in the product to help absorb.
Shop it here for P1,300 (limited time only).
STEP 4: MOISTURIZE WITH THE 30 DAYS MIRACLE CREAM
Chockfull of lavender, rosemary, oregano, and thyme, this herbal hydrator is teeming with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. While it delivers a rich, emollient texture, you’re guaranteed to skip any sticky feeling. It also contains salicylic acid, which is known to visibly reduce pimples and speed up healing.
HOW TO USE IT: Apply a pea-sized amount of the moisturizer, and spread across your face!

THE 2-WEEK TEST
Here’s what Kathy has to say about her two-week experience!
ON THE MIRACLE BAR SOAP: “This is my first time using a cleanser in soap form. It lathers really well and I always feel so refreshed after using it. It washes off deep-seated dirt and excess oil but it doesn’t make my skin feel tight after rinsing.”
ON THE MIRACLE TONER: “Out of all the products in this line, I was looking forward to trying this out the most. In fact, it’s what actually convinced me to try Some By Mi after seeing it work for my officemate, Aion. The toner is odorless and it doesn’t sting when applied. The best part about using this toner is how my face feels so soft and supple when I wake up the following day!”
ON THE MIRACLE SERUM: “This is my favorite product from the entire line. I absolutely love how fresh and clean it smells. It quickly absorbs into the skin and leaves it moisturized. It evened out the texture of my skin and it helped with fading acne scars.”
ON THE MIRACLE CREAM: “The cream is thicker than what I expected. It makes my face a bit oily so I recommend using this at night especially if you’re oily-skinned like me.”
OVERALL: “People say I look more glowing. My skin is smoother and I no longer get dry patches around the cheeks. I have yet to find out if these can help with pre-period breakouts but so far, things are looking great. I noticed that I haven’t gotten a single pimple since I started using the entire line. I’ve only been using these products for 14 days and it had already made huge improvements to my skin. I can’t wait to see how my skin looks after the 30-day mark. “
