The Somme Institute's system is skin saving, you guys. Just trust.
Blame it on the residual effects of the 1-2-3 step regimes of the late '90s and early aughts, but we kind of resent being told what to do, and in what order, when it comes to our skincare. You know: those explicitly numbered bottles? We're not naming any names (really, we're not); but you get the idea. And so when we came across the Somme Institute's five-step, color-coded routine we were admittedly skeptical, if not a little, "ugh, as if!" about the whole thing. And we seriously doubt we're alone in thinking the whole use-this-entire-plethora-of-products things is a ploy to get us to plonk down our pennies. But that's where, to embrace the kind of infomercial-y beauty marketing speak we just bashed moments earlier, we were wrong.
