Some By Mi’s Yuja Niacin Blemish Care Serum Review

Almost every month, new skin care products are released in Korea that you want to test since they seem to have promising effects. This makes Korean beauty products quite overwhelming. This serum is probably already well-known to many people who adore Korean skin care products, but due to my hectic schedule, I’ve only had the chance to evaluate it now.

Yuja Niacin Serum from Some by mi, is a serum which contains Yuzu extract and niacinamide to diminish the appearance of blemishes in just 30 days. According to them, they only use Yuja (citron) sourced from the clean and natural area of Goheung, Korea from where warm sunlight and fresh breeze from the sea can be found.

What is Yuja?

According to wikipedia, Yuja is a citrus fruit and plant in the family Rutaceae of East Asian origin. It is believed to have originated in central China as a hybrid of mandarin orange. The fruit looks somewhat like a small grapefruit with an uneven skin, and can be either yellow or green depending on the degree of ripeness.

Despite the fact that niacinamide is currently quite popular, at first I was a little hesitant about this product since I didn’t know what the name “Yuja” meant. I thus stored this item in my cabinet and actually forgot it was there.

After a while, I observed my friend’s complexion had cleared up. She gave me this product recommendation when I inquired what she was using. When I got home, I used this one right away after taking it out of my cabinet. I was really struck by how gentle this stuff smelled. A lot of the reviews I read were favorable, which peaked my interest in the effects this product might have on my skin.

The serum did not leave a sticky feeling and was light enough to be quickly absorbed. I have just used the serum, but I believe the entire set will produce results that are pleasing. The imperfections from my acne are beginning to diminish, and my coworkers have also noticed that I am becoming fairer.

Sorry for my picture.. 🤣

The results weren’t immediately apparent, but with continued use, your skin will improve. As you can see in my photo (which I zoomed out so you would notice), on the before photo, you can clearly see my pores, but on the other photo, you can tell that my skin went smoother after using this product for two weeks. I still have oily skin, so I’m not sure how that will resolve, but other than that, I’m quite pleased with what I saw in the mirror.

I heartily suggest it to anyone who suffer acne-related dark spots and blemishes. This item works wonders, in my opinion. Without a doubt, I’ll purchase it once again.
