I am an eye cream aficionado. It’s not that I know everything about them, it’s more that I love and appreciate a good eye cream. It’s the skincare item I crave most. In an upcoming article I’ve written for Temptalia I categorized eye “creams” into several categories: serums, gels, liquid and cream.
Somme institute’s Eye Cream is one I’d put in the liquid category. It’s a liquid cream in other words. The name is just EYE, nothing fancy, but very fitting. Somme Institute skincare has been used by me for almost 6 months. I’m always testing new products and giving them a fair shake but Somme is who I come home to for my basics. I recently repurchased the line when Hautelook had it on sale and believe me, I sure didn’t need more skincare, but I wanted it.
Somme EYE ($72) contains the same basic ingredients that are so wonderful in their 5 step skincare line. It’s infused with eye-specific Molecular Dispersion Technology 5 (MDTD5), a patented technology of vitamins A, B3, B5, C and E designed specifically to improve the eye area. The goal is intense hydration for this most delicate skin on your face. Somme Eye is recommended for all skin types. It will help with firmness and brightness.
I use this both day and night. In the daytime I’ll use a small pump and mix it with my concealer. I like to wear It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye and the best coverage for me is mixing it with my Somme EYE. It goes on more smoothly without settling into fine lines while at the same time moisturizing and protecting my eyes. If I use a serum on my eye area, I wait for it to dry and then use a little Somme Eye over it. At night when I use all my Somme products, it fits right in.
I like the sanitary pump it comes in since I don’t have to worry about cleaning a spatula or being lazy and putting in a used one. Not all eye creams are recommended for the orbital bone area but Somme Eye is safe for this region and won’t wander into your eyes stinging them.
Somme Institute easily became my basic skincare company of choice. 5 products in their basic regimen, Boost Warming Mask and Eye – all are gentle and extremely effective products that fit into my life perfectly. – Marcia
