Some By Mi’s Yuja Niacin Blemish Care Serum: Skincare Review

In Korea, new skin care products are introduced almost monthly, and you should try them out because they seem to have promising results. Korean beauty products are therefore rather overpowering. Many fans of Korean skin care products are undoubtedly already familiar with this serum, but because of my busy schedule, I've just had a chance to review it recently.

A serum called Yuja Niacin Blemish Care Serum from Some by Mi combines niacinamide and Yuzu extract to reduce the appearance of blemishes in just 30 days. They claim that they exclusively use Yuja (citron) that is grown in the pristine, unpolluted region of Goheung, Korea, where one may find warm sunlight and cool sea breezes.

Wikipedia describes Yuja as an East Asian-originating citrus fruit and plant in the Rutaceae family. It is thought to have started out as a mandarin orange hybrid in central China. Depending on its level of maturity, the fruit can be either yellow or green and resembles a little grapefruit with uneven skin.


🌺A product with two uses: whitening and anti-wrinkle.
🌺Has 82% Korean Yuja Extract for moisturizing and brightening.
🌺With 5% Niacinamide to make the skin more radiant.
🌺Glutathione and arbutin work together to stop the formation of melanin.
🌺Using 12 different types of vitamins, revitalizes dull skin and relieves skin tension.
🌺It has a light texture that allows for easy absorption by the skin and leaves the skin feeling dry.

Apply a sufficient quantity evenly over the face, then gently pat the area to promote additional absorption.

Although niacinamide is now fairly popular, I was initially a bit cautious about this product since I didn't know what the word "Yuja" meant. As a result, I put this object in my cabinet and promptly forgot about it.

After a while, I noticed that my friend's complexion had improved. When I asked what she was using, she offered me a suggestion for this particular product. I took this one out of my cupboard as soon as I came home and used it. The delicate scent of this product truly got my attention. I read a lot of positive reviews, which piqued my interest in the potential impact this product may have on my skin.

The serum was light enough to be rapidly absorbed and did not leave a sticky residue. Although I have just tried the serum, I am certain that the full package will yield nice results. My coworkers have observed that I'm getting fairer, and the acne scarring on my face is starting to fade.

The outcomes were not instantaneous, but your skin will improve with constant use. You can obviously see my pores in the before shot of my photo, which I zoomed out so you would notice, but you can also see that my skin has smoothed out after using this product for two weeks. I'm not sure how my oily skin will ever go away, but aside from that, I'm happy with what I saw in the mirror.

I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who has blemishes and dark spots from acne. I think this product is fantastic. I'm certain I'll buy it once again.
