Comments about Somme Institute Double Defense Face and Body SPF 30, 3.8 oz:

I have tried a million moisturizers on my combination skin without having to reapply due to the dry weather. However, this works throughout the day, and my skin feels soft even by the time I go to sleep. The only downside is that with combination skin, my face does feel a little oily at the end of the day, but does not cause my skin to break out.

    By Stephanie B

    from Easton, PA

    Comments about Somme Institute Double Defense Face and Body SPF 30, 3.8 oz:

    I personally don't like the smell and the oiliness of this sunscreen. It also burns my eyes if I get it anywhere near my eyes. I'm currently trying the whole Somme line out, waiting for the miraculous difference in my skin that I've been told I will have in a few weeks. I really do love the other products... but the double defense makes me look oilier (I have T-zone oiliness and prone to moderate breakouts). I'm not sure I will reorder the double defense; it's just not that great, in my opinion. The rest of the Somme line seems to be clearing out my skin and reducing the redness. For the amount of money I'm paying, I expect to see a HUGE difference in my skin in a week or so... I'm starting to see a difference, especially regarding the firmness of my skin. Very nice. In my opinion, the double defense is not for oily skin, at least not mine.

    Comments about Somme Institute Double Defense Face and Body SPF 30, 3.8 oz:

    I LOVE Somme products for practically healing everything ails my poor skin, but the sunscreen is just plain evil in my opinion. I have oily and hyper-sensitive skin, and this stuff just oozes off with little effort right into my eyes, and the burn that results, evil. Wanted to rip my eyes out of their sockets. Finally just threw it away. But that's just my experience.

    Comments about Somme Institute Double Defense Face and Body SPF 30, 3.8 oz:

    I used all 5 products for 3 months and did not see any significant difference. I purchased the products in hopes that it would improve my moderate acne, but it did not. The products are not worth the price. I now use Dermalogica products, and have never been happier with my skin.

    Comments about Somme Institute Double Defense Face and Body SPF 30, 3.8 oz:

    I have sensitive skin and am prone to whiteheads and blemishes. I have tried a number of products. I bought the Somme product line on recommendation from my aesthetician. After 2 weeks of using the 5-step system morning and night, my skin texture, whiteheads, and blemishes improved so much that I'm never going back. It's well worth the cost.

    Comments about Somme Institute Double Defense Face and Body SPF 30, 3.8 oz:

    I have already used full bottles of this and find it to be a great moisturizing sunscreen...even on my dry skin. It is not a greasy sunscreen either. Just a beautifully protective and moisturizing sunscreen.
