I’ve been a skin care junkie all my life, even ran a holistic health spa for 10 years, and I’ve just now discovered this amazing line! Out of laziness, I tried these because I didn’t want to wait the 10-20 min for my regular facial peel to develop (I received this from boxycharm). WHOA. Not only is it simpler, faster (making me more motivated to consistently add it to my routine) it’s BETTER. Like, after just one week using it every other day (my skin is super reactive, so taking it slow…), I have visible results! It’s made the rest of my skincare work better-tightened skin, faded melasma, glowing complexion, wrinkles erased. For this 45 year old woman, this is a goldmine. I can’t wait to see my 12 week results!
I received these in a boxycharm box and was hesitant to try them because I have pretty sensitive skin. Everything makes me break out. I have not noticed any changes in my large pores or skin texture, however I have noticed a change in some stubborn a nice I had been dealing with. It does burn a little bit but I actually like that, because I feel like it’s working. It has not made my skin more red than usual. I think I’ll purchase when I am running low on the container I am presently using
These pads are so amazing, I received them in my Ipsy bag and holy moly! I struggle with oily skin and am prone to break-outs. I usually wake up with a really oily face and I feel like after starting these it was not as bad as it always has been. Another great thing about these for me is, I also have sensitive skin l, and these kind of pads usually make my skin burn and break-out in a rash. These little blessings in a jar so not so that to me! I had new rather ugly looking pimples at the time I received this product and just after the first day of application I could see it starting to clear up, when this Pluto sized pimple would normally take a whole week to even get better.
These are fabulous! Makes my skin feel incredibly fresh and clean. A little tingle when I first started using them. Been using about 14 days now. 35 Years of damage and environmental impact to my skin had me looking dull and old. This is definitely perking up my face! Looking forward to long term benefits of this product! Will buy again. 10/10 would recommend!
I got these pads in my monthly Boxycharm subscription. I used it for a month, loved it & bought more. It’s been 3 months. I use it twice a day and I have no irritation. There has been a significant, quick change in my skin. First of all, my face stopped breaking totally gone acne, my lines (I’m 43 with mild lines) have started to fade, the deep line between my brows is not as deep & I expect it to keep getting better, a scar has almost completely disappeared, my skin overall is brighter, softer, clearer, cleaner, smaller pores & some just disappeared and I didn’t dry out! I don’t usually write reviews but this product is the best I’ve ever used and I get several face products a month for years now. My collection is insane! I’ve been wanting to try Somme’s other products however they are pricey. I just bought the cream and cleanser on a special. I can’t wait to try them. I’m very curious how their eye serum is. MUST BUY USE DAILY!
I received this product in my boxy and wanted to try them. When I used this product immediately my face started burning, I had to wash my face with cold water for it to stop.
Ok I need to know how bad this is supposed to be burning. It burns so bad and kept my face so red not sure if this is normal. I was drawn into this product by several reviews I seen online and thought it seemed pretty darn good until I used it. I need to know what I’m doing wrong??? I want to love this product after seeing all these reviews, please help!
Hi there, Christy!
Thanks for leaving a review and we're terribly sorry to hear that it burnt like crazy. It's difficult to assess the situation like this so can we ask you to please call our Skincare Hotline at toll free 866.66.SOMME?
So is this supposed to burn? I'm thinking it's not just a slight tingle or burn it was like whoa wow I think it burned more then anything I've ever used prior but I'm all for something that's gonna work I just turned 41 on Sept 3 & I haven't been wearing makeup much for the last 2 years but it seems my dead skin and blackheads on my nose & also for some reason they are sorta deciding to move all around my nose slowly are becoming something I absolutely can't stand. I find it had to even wear makeup these days cause my dry flaky skin makes it look so icky. I can say getting older & everything lately hasn't at all made me feel even half as pretty or anything close anymore 😔
I only have these pads from your product line & wish I could sample the rest of it cause I'd be a lifetime buyer of it, if it will work I been trying to find something for awhile now & I just am sick of wasting tons of money on stuff that isn't working, it's really been a huge waste. Also I'm wondering if the burning was maybe cause I just got out the shower & used my face cleaner. Is there a certain way to use these pads & do I apply moisturizer and a serum after also what type of serum is best & is a product with Retinol ok? I can't find to much info abouty questions anywhere so I hope someone answers me.
