Somme Institute: Boost Warming Mask Review


Boost Warming Mask-




The Somme Institute is dedicated to the science of skin perfection. Found exclusively in the Somme product line and based on years of scientific research and clinical trials*, Molecular Dispersion Technology is the most significant advancement in skin care. *Somme Institute clinical trials were conducted using Ultra Violet Photography to expose wrinkles, sun damage and acne beneath the skin's surface. Molecular Dispersion Technology (MDT5) is a non-prescription synthesis of five highly-engineered vitamin compounds, designed to treat specific areas within the skin. The advanced delivery system allows high concentrations of vitamins to infiltrate the skin without toxicity or loss of potency and its unique biochemical formula will not oxidize when exposed to air or light.

It repairs sun damage

Reverses fine lines and wrinkles

Eliminates acne without redness, drying, or irritation

And will not clog pores.

This mask is a multi-tasking gently-warming treatment that purifies, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin. The mask will boost the effect of Somme Institute 5-step regimen. Infused with a specialized blend of minerals, enzymes, and vitamins that helps to bring clarity to the skin. The warming action increases the blood circulation which supports and nourishes healthy skin cells.

How to use: Apply a generous amount of Boost to face and neck, on dry skin.

My thoughts*

The packaging was simple yet elegant at the same time. It came in a solid white box with a single purple dot on the exterior about the size of a quarter. The same can be said about the mask bottle. It's white with a purple dot, with instructions on the opposite side.

Although other masks go on damp skin, you put this in your hand and mix & massage this into dry skin. It has no problem going on dry skin at all. It spreads just like warm frosting on a cake.

As soon as you apply this, you can feel the warmness starting. It feels so amazing, like having a spa right at home. I've never used a mask that had a warming technology before, so this was a first for me. You can use this as often as you need to, or just use it once or twice a week. It is recommended that you use this 1-3 times a week for the best results, but I try and use it every other day because I love how it feels.

After only the first or second use, my face did look WAY healthier. It took all the dryness out, while not leaving too much oil on my face. I didn't have any problems with breakouts at all, which is surprising for me in the summer months. My skin was clearer then it has ever been and seemed to glow within. This was from the warming mask creating a better circulation in the blood to my face.

My skin was nourished and moisturized and extremely smooth because of the exfoliation that this mask gives. It's amazing that it cleanses, purifies, and exfoliates so well within those 7-10 minutes, but it DID! I was thrilled. I've never had a mask be able to do all this AND give absolutely astonishing results after just 1 use.

The mask is a creamy white color and feels silky to the touch. It is very fragrant and smells absolutely delicious.

I love how this smells, like a warm pumpkin pie mixture (yum). It isn't an overpowering smell though, just enough that I could smell it while it was on.

It isn't often that you see a mask like this that is made for all skin types. Usually a company makes a couple of different masks (for different skin types) because what dry skin needs isn't necessarily what oily or combination skin needs. This mask is totally different from any other mask that I've ever seen because it doesn't strip oils, nor is it TOO oily, it is just the right OOMP for all skin types. I say that's a HUGE plus in my book.

My skin not only looked beautiful, but I could FEEL the beauty of it. I know that may sound odd, but this mask is like heaven on earth. This is like having a spa at home! It is so relaxing yet energizing at the same time. It relaxes my senses with the scent and warming quality, yet energized my thoughts. It felt absolutely divine.

I also add in customer service to my reviews because I've had some products take forever to come to my doorstep, and it absolutely worries me to death. Where there are so many scams and stuff online, I start thinking maybe I got jipped if a product doesn't come in a timely manner. This was received within just a couple of days and customer service was always friendly and helpful through anything. They even sent a follow-up email to make sure I received the product and was enjoying it. ! That's going above and beyond for their product line, and I love when a company does that for their customers.

I loved everything about this company and this mask. Although the mask is $40, I definitely think that it's worth it. You have to add in how long it lasts- this takes just a size of a nickel to spread over entire face and neck. I've seen other products that were more expensive, and didn't cover HALF of what this mask can do.

I haven't had the opportunity to try any of the other Somme Institute products, but I hope to be able to work with them again the future.
