After getting rid of your acne, what do you do next? Me, I get rid of my dark acne scars by using Vitamin C serum. But I stumble upon a new toner by Some By Mi that really piqued my curiosity. It has two of my most favorite brightening products: Galactomyces and Vitamin C. So did it really made my skin glow? Lightened my dark spots? And does Niacinamide and Vitamin C can be really used together? Keep reading this Some By Mi Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner review to learn more.
Some By Mi Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner is one of the best toners I have ever used! In fact, I like this way better than their famous Miracle Toner. In just two weeks, my skin looks really brighter and my dark spots really lightened. And after a month, my dark spots VANISHED.

WHAT IS IT?
The innovative Some By Mi Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner combines galactomyces and vitamin C, two of the most popular and effective brightening ingredients, to nourish skin back to health. It claims that it will give you a lit-from-within look, more radiant skin, and free from pigmentation while keeping it moisturized. It works on sunspots, acne spots, and even dark under-eyes! See results in as early as 28 days.
This glow toner contains 88% of galactomyces and 10,000 ppm of vitamin C specifically an ascorbic acid. This is proof that Niacinamide and Vitamin C could really work together. The formula is also free of artificial fragrance and colors, parabens, sulfates, animal products, mineral oil, and silicone. You can read the full list of its ingredients and analysis in Skin Carisma.
APPLICATION: After cleansing, pour an adequate amount of the Some By Mi Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner on a cotton pad and gently sweep across the face and neck. Pat gently using the fingertips for faster absorption.
SCENT: It has a strong acidic scent that resembles those chewable vitamin c tablets.
PACKAGING: It is packaged in a bottle just like any toner, however, this comes in a brown tinted one like a beer to avoid the sunlight and prevent it from oxidizing. I highly recommend storing this in its box and away from sunlight.
TEXTURE & FORMULA: It has a thick consistency which resembles the Purito Centella Green Level Calming Toner, it doesn’t feel sticky or greasy on the skin but it takes a while to set on your skin. It looks clear at first, but then it turned a little yellow in just the first week of opening it.
Upon writing this review, my Some By Mi Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner is almost empty and completely brown. Oxidizing is normal for liquid skincare products with a high amount of Vitamin C, but this one oxidizes REALLY fast just like the CosRx Triple C Lightning Liquid. A week after opening it, it already has a hint of yellow and in just 3 months, it’s already brown.
Having said that, this is one of the best toners I have ever used! In fact, I like this way better than their famous Miracle Toner. This one claims that you’ll see results in just 28 days, but I already saw improvements in my skin in just 14 days. In just two weeks, my skin looks really brighter and my dark spots really lightened. And after a month, my dark spots VANISHED!
It’s just a bummer that my hormonal acne is stronger than any products I used, but at least when I started using this, the spots that my acne leave are not that dark anymore. And when I stopped using this because I didn’t bring it in my travel, it feels like my skin went back to its dull tone.
