Product Review: Somme Institute Eye

The Somme Institute's Eye cream, simply titled Eye ($72), is formulated to restore skin elasticity and make eyes look brighter. It does this through a special ingredient, MDT5 (Molecular Dispersion Technology 5), a proprietary ingredient consisting of six vitamins. The company boasts that the formula will "produce profound visual changes in skin texture, tone, and clarity to recapture a radiant, youthful complexion."

Sadly, I'll never know. This is because the eye cream has the most off-putting odor, and the consistency of a greasy sunscreen. Let's start with the scent: it can best be likened to a jelly doughnut. Not exactly the smell you'd expect from a $70 eye cream. Secondly, the cream seems too thick and greasy for the sensitive eye area. I prefer a much subtler lotion that blends into the region seamlessly.

Overall, I can't comment on if Somme's Eye would've recaptured my youthful complexion. Unfortunately, I was too turned off to keep it in my skin care arsenal for more than a couple of nights.
