The Somme Institute works in a 5-step regimen. A common ingredient in all of the steps is MDT5, which enables the products to work synergistically while releasing varied highly engineered vitamins in different sequences. MDT5 boosts collagen production, accelerates cell renewal, evens skin tone, and treats fine lines, sun damage, wrinkles, uneven skin, oily skin, dry skin, acne and rosacea. It goes like this:
Step 1: Nourishing Cleanser ($40)- Treatment and cleansing combined... A non-foaming cleanser that deep cleans skin without irritation or over-drying. Dissolves dirt and oil without clogging pores. Wet face with warm water and massage cleanser into skin. Rinse. I have to admit that I am not a fan of this cleanser. Hard to explain why, I don't like the consistency perhaps.
Step 2: Transport Pads ($58)- Exfoliate without abrasion... Soft cotton pads infused with MDT5 to exfoliate dead skin cells on skin's surface, unclog blocked pores and improve resiliency, hydration and cell renewal. Smooth pad over clean face, neck and upper chest.
Step 3: Serum ($82)- Amplifies collagen production, while visibly lightening discoloration... A potent, stabilized form of Vitamin C mixed with a concentration of MDT5 strengthens skin elasticity and smooths the appearance of fine lines. Apply several drops to face, neck and upper chest.
Step 4: A-Bomb ($70)- Recapture flawless, youthful skin... A lightweight cream containing MDT5 and high levels of Vitamins A & E to soften fine lines and wrinkles while targeting problem areas. Apply to face, neck and upper chest. This smells kinda like a key lime pie or something. Very light and absorbent.
Step 5: Double Defense ($48)- Hydration and protection... A lightweight, waterproof lotion with SPF 30+ contains MDT5 and Parasol 1789 to help protect skin from premature aging while locking in vital moisture. Apply to face, neck and upper chest. This is the stand out from this group for me. I LOVE it. I use it daily as my moisturizer + sunscreen. Highly recommended.
Eye Cream ($72)- A hydrating eye cream that brings back skin's elasticity, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.
