Somme Institute is a skin care company that focuses on the “research of skin care” and science of products, which are used for skin afflictions like sun damage, acne blemishes, dry skin, oily complexions, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and hyper pigmentation. At this time there is no official website for Somme Institute since it is under construction. Fortunately many of their products are sold conveniently online through websites like drugstore.com. Overall, these treatments aim to improve the user’s skin texture, boost radiance and assist with restoring a youthful glow.

There are essentially nine different Somme Institute products sold on the drugstore.comwebsite. These are Transport Pads ($58), Serum ($82), A-Bomb ($70), Nourishing Cleanser ($40), Double Defense Face and Body SPF ($48), Mobile Travel Kit ($85), Eye Cream ($72), Value Set ($175), and Neckline Neck Cream ($68).

Product Details

The Somme Institute skin care line is a small group of facial treatments that endeavor to suit most skin types.

The Good

  • All of the Somme Institute skin care products are available through drugstore.com.
  • Full lists of ingredients are provided for these topical treatments.

The Bad

  • The official website for Somme Institute is currently unavailable.
  • There may be some ingredients found in these facial treatments that irritate some complexions.
  • There are no consumer reviews posted on drugstore.com for the Somme Institute products they sell.

The Bottom Line

Overall, the Somme Institute beauty line is interesting in some respects. Not only are there vital ingredients like Green Tea Extract, to Glycolic Acid, Grape seed Extract, Aloe Powder, Chamomile Extract, Lavender Extract, Palma Rosa Extract, Lime Extract, Glycerin, Myristate, Marigold Extract, Squalane, and Jojoba Esters offered in these treatments, but they’re all listed out on dealer websites for anyone to see. Unfortunately the official Somme Institute website is under construction at this time, which makes it rather difficult to attain significant background information and specifics on clinical research.

Top Wrinkle Cream for 2014: Revivasol

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Revivasol is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. By recommending lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, Revivasol has firmly placed their customers health first. We never see skin care companies doing this sort of marketing. In addition, scientifically-proven results on how the formula works says it all, and the Revivasol website provides ample proof. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the clinical studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Revivasol is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Revivasol Go



Vivexin

(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go
