Somme Institute - Pillow Pack

Monday, September 17, 2012




I'm obsessed with great skincare!  Every time I find a gem, I love to share it with my wonderful readers!  So recently, I came across Somme Institute's Pillow Pack which not only promises to change your skin in one week, but it's also a wonderful way to sample some of their most essential skin care products!  Being the beauty junkie that I am, I was totally up for the challenge!  When my two week supply arrived in the mail, I tore open one of the packages and began to indulge in what would be a truly amazing experience!  The pillow pack is designed to transform your skin with MDT5 (Molecular Dispersion Technology) in 5 easy steps, containing 5 essential vitamins all in 5 minutes! Did I mention that 5 is my absolute favorite number in the world??  Perhaps because I was born on January 5th, 1975 at 5:05 in the morning... could also be that I met my hubby on the 5th of August and that my girls were born on the 5th of December?  OK enough about that... but Somme Institute... you had me at FIVE! 



Before I begin my chat about each step, can we please talk about the packaging!  I am totally uhhhhbsessed with the sleek colorful dots against the crisp white packaging!  Each dot represents one of the five steps.  It's fun, playful, sleek and most importantly... it works!



Step one is the Nourishing Cleanser (in the blue dot).  I have actually been using this with my Clarasonic Mia 2 and love it!  My skin feels clean, refreshed and completely radiant after each use! 

 
Step two is the Transport exfoliating without abrasion (purple dot).  I cannot say enough good things about this product.  In fact, I think it's my favorite product in the pillow pack.  I simply use these pads to smooth over my clean face, neck and upper chest to exfoliate any dead cells on the skin's surface.  This helps to unclog blocked pores which I occasionally fall victim to.  I have honestly noticed a major difference since i began using this product.  Love, love, looooove!


Step 3 Serum (orange dot).  This wonderful serum is designed to boost collagen and lighten discoloration.  It contains vitamin C with MDT5 which strengthens skin elasticity and smooths the appearances of fine lines.  Um yes please!

 

Step 4 A-Bomb (green dot).  This step is designed to accelerate cell renewal.  This feels so good on my skin.  It's packed full of vitamins A & E helping to soften fine lines and wrinkles while targeting problem areas. 


 
Step 5 (pink dot) is the Double Defense moisturizer.  I love it because it's lightweight!  I hate the feeling of heavy products on my face.  This water-resistant lotion with SPF30 tops off this skincare regimen allowing skin to feel hydrated and smooth. 



I'm totally impressed with the way my skin feels.  You've heard me review some of my favorite skin care brands before and know how devoted I am to them.  I was a bit skeptical going into this challenge simply because a week is such a short amount of time to really see any kind of significant results.  However, my skin really does feel incredible!  The best part... it's convenient!  I went away this past weekend and knew that I didn't have much to think about when it came to packing my skin care regimen.  I simply tossed the pillow pack into my weekender bag and voila... off I went!  Have you ever tried Somme Institute products?  What's your favorite?  I'm dying to try the Boost Warming Mask!  Looks delicious! 

Thank you so much for reading!  A special 'thanks' to Somme Institute for sending me the pillow packs to test and love! Don't forget to become an official follower of FMM! XOXO Carla
