    What are some better chemical exfoliants if not Som by Mi's? I was planning on buying Som by Mi's as it was cheapest for me on yesstyle.

    I had gotten a sample of the yellow L’Oréal clay mask and literally looked like I had yellow mustard with poppy seeds on my face. I don’t use harsh physical exfoliators on my face anymore bc they cause micro tears on the skin which is causing more harm than good. I was super gentle when washing it off trying not to rub too hard. The next day I had a couple cuts on my cheek and a painful pimple starting to form. Luckily I had some derma e scar gel and those acne spot dots by peach slices to combat both problems. What you said was right they are good clay masks and my skin felt bright but the granules made it a HARD PASS for me. And yes these were HEAVILY PROMOTED by Victoria’s Secret models on IG bc L’Oréal was one of the sponsors.

    I do think most of Glam Glow's products are over hyped. I bought the jumbo size of the Super Mud mask. I use it about 2ish types a week all over but the best use for it leaving it in (like you mentioned) over congested areas. That's where it really shines, in about 2-3 days is knocks down a pimple/ breakout. It doesn't fry my skin unlike some spot treatments

    i don't know if this happened to everyone else too or is it just me, but i don't feel any "miracle" for using somebymi. i used both the toner and serum everyday, Twice a day with right amount (not much, not less), but i don't see any different. my skin is not really bad, but i have a problem on my cheeks that so many acne, and not going better after using these two products. lately i stop using the serum and only use the toner and add aloe vera for see what product that the problem, and after using that way my skin slowly getting better, and when i tried to use the serum again, my skin breakout again. i don't know is this just happened to me or what, cause i saw so many review on Instagram that say it works

    I agree 100 %.. the Acids can break down the skins barrier if you use too often especially if you are new to acids..I have the laneige lip treatment and found it does no better than the $7 Smith's Minted Rose Lip Balm That I have..Heck if you have bad cracked lips buy Lansinoh Lanolin Nipple Cream where the breast feeding section is..It will work better on chapped lips

    That some by mi toner really ruined my skin when I started using it people stopped complimenting how good my skin looked as I noticed that it dulled my conplexion. Thank God it went back to normal the moment I stopped using it.

    Most products are way overrated!!! I stick with moisturiser, sunscreen, NOSUN and retin a. If the "miracle" creams actually worked plastic surgeons would be out of a job!!

    The Laneige lip sleeping mask works wonders. If you don't have dry lips then the product won't work wonders for you because mainly there's nothing wrong with your lips. Therefore, the argument putting on a couple of extra layers of lip balm makes sense. However, when I took accutane, my lips were extremely dry and would flake in one day. I tried putting on extra layers of lip balm to moisturise my lip but nothing worked. However, Laneige lip sleeping mask solved all my problems. It exfoliated the dead skin and left it feeling soft and moisturised. Throughout the day, I would put on lip balm, but what made my lip healthy and moisturised was definitely the Laneige product.

    If you have nothing wrong with your lips then don't get the product. But if it is extremely dry, the product does its job.

    I do not understand that laneige lip mask. I don’t think it’s that hydrating. I prefer the yes to coconuts lip balm or pailas choice lip balm. Also the glam glow has a bunch of weird twigs in it if I remember correctly??

    I don’t know about the Laneige one… I had awful cracked, painful, peeling lips and NOTHING worked. Within a few weeks of using the Laneige mask, my lips were healed

    I wear a lot of matte lipsticks which are really drying on the lips and I can get huge build ups of dead skin (which also don't look great with matte lipsticks) and the laniege lip mask just gets rid of that completely. I've had no build up of dead skin since I started using it plus my lips feel more hydrated. Sure, if dead skin isn't an issue for you then there's not much the mask will do that a lip balm won't, but I think it's unfair to say a product is overhyped because it's something your skin doesn't need. That's like me saying all face oils are overhyped because my oily skin doesn't need it

    Honestly, everything I’ve tried from Neogen. Green Tea cleansing stick, Green Tea Cleansing Foam, Green Tea Exfoliating Pads, and the Real Ferment Micro Essence. The cleansers were fine, just dried my skin a little too much. The pads are just a little too rough, didn’t see much of a difference, and I decided to stop all forms of physical exfoliation. The essence (probably more controversial) is just wayyyy too weak. Even after multiple layers, it feels like I’m just patting on water that doesn’t stick around. I greatly prefer the Galactomyces Essences from Manyo Factory or even the CosRX one.

    tbh the toner Fromm some by me is overhyped but the cream and the serum from the same line really made miracles on my skin. Nothing changed my skin as much as these two products. And the cream has 70% of centella asiatica, it's really good for acne prone skin!

    Laneige lip mask: At first, I felt it made my lips very soft, and i love it so much because my lips very dry . But after about 3 weeks used every night, I felt lips had tiny cracks but i couldn't see, then the lips began to feel a little rough. Then I stop use it and change another products(just some drugstore lips balms) , my lips become normal, and now even sometimes i forget to use lip balm, my lips are not as dry as before i use Laneigh
    Sorry if you can't understand, my English is very bad.

    Omg where has this channel been all my life? I'm surprised that I'd never come across this before. And finally someone shares my opinion on the laneige lip mask! It's definitely over hyped. The Maybelline baby lips lip balm does a much better job for me at a fraction of the cost.

    I’m indifferent with the Laneige lip mask. I would highly recommend the Nivea lip butters. Put on a thick layer at night and the next morning, all the dry skin on your lips peels/rubs off. Super soft lips afterwards. No need for scrubs or anything.

    The jade roller really doesn’t make a difference, I just think it feels nice (especially bc I have bad migraines) that’s why I bought a cheap one, not one for $50 or something😅

    Jade rollers/gua sha massage can actually work really well if you're using it correctly. I have severe TMJ and gua sha scrapers where recommended to me by my physiotherapist for facial massage as they spread out pressure and you're less likely to bruise a sore jaw muscle than if you massages with your hands. But the jade itself is a useless material, you are totally correct, and the rollers are less effective than the scrapers.
