Review: Some By Mi Rose Intensive Tone-Up Cream|Style Korean

Here is my first product review for the Some By Mi Try Me, Review Me Event of Style Korean. Style Korean is an online shop where you can get a lot of Korean skincare and makeup products. If you are from a country that experiences winter, I think this is best for you since it does lock in moisture.

I was chosen to try out a couple of Some By Mi products and one of which is the ROSE INTENSIVE TONE UP CREAM.

 Let’s start this post with a short introduction to TONE UP CREAM. To be honest, this is my first time trying out a tone up cream, so I did some research and found out that tone creams are created to make your skin tone look brighter, fight hyperpigmentation and discoloration. Tone Up Creams are with the same family of BB and CC Creams, it can also act as your sunscreen and primer.

Price: $32 or Php 1673

Weight: 50ml


Your new favourite instant whitening and toning correction cream.
Instead of purified water , this tone up cream contains 70% of western rose water.
Tone up your skin color naturally.
Provides an outstanding glow to the skin the moment you apply it.
Perfect for whiten, softening and moisturizing your skin.
Comes in Vitamin B12 for wrinkle prevention.

This is a tone up cream that is infused with western rose water and with no artificial coloring and flavors.

Some notable ingredients in this cream are Glutathione which is a whitening ingredient, Arbutin that protects the skin and helps maintain that healthy glow, and Niacinamide or B3, which is another whitening ingredient and can even out skin tone.

This also contains B12 that is responsible for wrinkle prevention of skin regeneration and acts as a natural pigment.

How to use: Tone up creams are typically used after your skincare and before your sunscreen. Tone up creams are NOT suggested to be used as an overnight cream because it can block your pores.

This cream is not limited to the face only. You could also use this in your body, especially those that are usually uneven like the elbows, knees, neck, and feet.

Packaging: This cream comes in a tube and has a pink and white theme. I love this cream is in a tube form because it makes it more hygienic and very travel-friendly.

The only thing that I have to point out is that the information about the product is all in Korean, even the box, but you get some information on the Style Korean website. 



  • This cream has a slight pinkish white color and has a rose scent which is not too overpowering.
  • A little goes a long way with this cream, so this 50 ml will last me for a long time.
  • This made my face look a lot whiter and brighter, but at the same time, made it look like it has a healthy glow.
  • I tried using this as a sleeping cream (but please don’t use this as a sleeping cream, I just use this for experimental purposes) and when I woke up, I looked like those Korean actress that has a white and glowing face.
  • I did use this for 3 weeks, and I noticed my face became whiter and whiter, this just not have an instant effect, but in the long run, you will also notice that whitening and brightening effect.
  • I like how this cream is also moisturizing and doesn’t build up on the side of my nose.
  • This cream is a nice tone up cream, but it does make my face produce more oil. I have to blot more than I usually do when I use this.

Tips and Final thoughts:

  • This tone up cream doesn’t have coverage, so this is not a substitute for your foundation or cushion.
  • I like the instant effect of this cream, and this would be perfect for those who want to be whiter and have a brighter face.

That’s it for my Rose Intensive Tone-up  Cream from Some By Mi provided by Style Korean. I hope you guys learned a thing or two in this post.
