When it comes to taking care of my skin I only want to use the best products that will deliver the best results. I am at that age where fine lines and wrinkles are becoming more prominent and in order to combat them, I need to use some serious skin care. So let me introduce you to a revolutionary skin care line called Somme Institute.
Somme Institute has developed and patented a revolutionary and radical new technology
in skin care called MDT5 (Molecular Dispersion Technology). Containing free radical fighting anti-oxidants, MDT5 allows 5 highly engineered essential vitamins (A, B3/B5, C, D and E) to penetrate the inner skin layers in their active forms at high concentrations. These free-radical fighting vitamins are bound in a scientific matrix of polypeptides that target specific skin cell receptors permitting Somme Institute to benefit the skin by:
• Delivering intense hydration and moisture
• Repairing sun damage and discoloration
• Smoothing fine lines, wrinkles and crepiness
• Increasing the density of the dermal matrix
• Increasing skin elasticity with continued use
This unique formula can penetrate deep within the skin without oxidizing or losing potency when exposed to air or light.
The result is the most profound visual changes in skin texture, radiance and overall appearance ever achieved in cosmetic history without a prescription.
This advanced delivery system encourages the vitamins to target specific skin conditions (wrinkles, environmental damage, oiliness, and blemishes on the skin's surface) while remaining non-comedogenic (will not clog pores) and maintaining complete potency.
Incorporated into this MDT5 breakthrough are the highest potency of natural ingredients for skin conditioning and anti-inflammatory benefits. Somme Institute contains advanced phytonutrients like soybean extract and spiralina maxima to condition the skin while daucus carota sativa (carrot extract) is high in antioxidant beta carotene. Somme Institute is a faster, more effective high performance skin care line with Retin-A like results without the side effects of redness, dryness, peeling or sun sensitivity. Suitable for any age and skin type [including those with acne or rosacea], the MDT5 regimen includes Nourishing Cleanser, Transport (pads to exfoliate); Serum, which contains vitamin C; A-Bomb (a potent combination of vitamins A and E) and Double Defense, a lightweight broad-spectrum SPF 30.
Now that you know a little bit more about Somme Institute, let me present to you their luxurious products that I recently had the fortune of trying.
First of all I must tell you that in the few weeks that I have been using them, I can see a noticeable difference in my skin tone, a decrease in my fine lines and wrinkles as well as some lightening of my hyper-pigmentation that I inherited in my younger years from basking in the summer sun too much.
This is a 6 step regimen that will transform your skin. The packaging is quite modern and the containers or closures are silk-screened with a color circle for easy identification. In each package comes a color coded insert which helps to identify each product along with their ingredients.
This is a non foaming mild cleanser that contains MDT5. It's perfect for all skin types. The first time I tried this on my face, I thought I was using the moisturizing cream and stopped to look at the bottle just to make sure I was using the right product. Of course I was but I could not get over how creamy the cleanser was. Even though I do prefer to use a foaming cleanser, this still did a great job of removing dirt as well as my makeup. It's a very mild, gentle cleanser and did not irritate my skin nor leave it feeling dry.
These are soft cotton pads that are infused with the MDT5 to exfoliate dead cells on the surface of the skin and to help unclog pores thus improving resiliency, hydration and encouraging cell renewal.
These pads do not sting or leave my skin feeling dry or taut but feeling refreshed and clean.
There are 50 treatment pads.
This serum amplifies collagen production while visibly lightening discoloration. It combines a potent stabilized form of Vitamin C, along with a high concentration of MDT5 to strengthen skin elasticity and smooth the appearance of fine lines.
I thought for sure this serum would smell terrible because I have used other serums in the past that left a very unpleasant odor on my skin. But this one has a fresh clean smell to it.
I have noticed my skin looking clearer and more radiant since I began using this serum. One big difference that I have been seeing is the fading of my hyperpigmentation/melasma that is on the side of my neck.
This is a lightweight cream that contains MDT5 and high levels of Vitamin A and E to help soften fine lines and wrinkles while targeting problem areas.
I love this moisturizing cream. It absorbs well and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and moisturized. Has a nice mild scent to it.
New Eye Cream
Somme Institute’s new EYE cream contains a controlled-release MDT5 technology to brighten the eye contour, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness and discoloration. Soybean peptides reduce fine lines and dark circles while soothing mango butter in this eye repair cream helps to condition the skin. It also smoothes, moisturizes and hydrates the thin and delicate skin around the eyes.
One tiny calibrated pump of this eye cream is all you will need. A little does go a long way with this product. I can already see a difference in the smoothing of my fine lines around my eyes. This eye cream softens the delicate skin around my eyes and keeps them hydrated.
Double Defense SPF30+
This is a lightweight waterproof lotion with SPF30+ that contains MDT5 and Parasol 1789 to help protect your skin from premature aging while locking in vital moisture.
This lotion has a pleasant odor that reminds me of the coppertone one. It blended well into my skin, but left a bit of a greasy feeling.
I have been using these products twice a day as instructed for several weeks now and have not had any skin flare ups or irritations occur. The products are pricey but in my opinion they are worth it. Why? because I can already see a noticeable difference in my skin and to me you can't put a price tag on good looking skin.
