It seems that these peel pads were given out as a gift without instructions and that has led to misuse and negative reviews which I think are a great disservice to this brand and product.

So first an explanation: These are PEEL pads! Yes they can be a little irritating especially to sensitive skin or people not use to peels/glycolic acid. Use: after cleansing and before moisturizing - I would not use with any other toners or exfoliators at the same time. I once tried these and put another AHA/BHA gel on after and it dried my skin out/burned terribly. The instructions recommend squeezing the pad to remove excess product for sensitive skin.

My review: The Somme line is amazing - every person who has combo/oily skin and is looking for anti-aging products should be using the 3 core products of this line (and believe me I have investigated and tried pretty much every line out there) - the Transport Pads (AHA/BHA exfoliating pads), the Serum (high concentration of vitamin C), A-Bomb (high concentration of vitamins A and E). These products have everything you need - lots of it and not the bad stuff you don't. I think the cleanser and any additional sunblock/moisturizer can be switched out for your preference and to play around a bit and try new things. However, every time I switch out one of "the core 3" my skin pays a heavy price.

The Transport Pads: Once again these are DAILY PEEL PADS. You must use glycolic acid products daily and consistently and will see results in 2-3 months and must continue to use them to see benefits. This is how all glycolic acid products work. These will exfoliate your skin which is good for all kinds of skin types and for anti-aging. Everyone should be using glycolic acid and exfoliating daily (face and body!). These pads are comparable to all the other brand name peel pads out there and if you look at the ingredients you could argue quite a bit better. These exfoliating pads are fantastic and if used correctly you will see results - in acne, aging, brightness, discoloration, congestion, pores etc. There is no magic here - this is just what regular use of glycolic acid/exfoliation does.

i have combination skin and my skin is not sensitive type; however, after i smooth the transport pads over my clean face and neck, my face & neck also feel itchy and have a little bit redness for about 5-10 minutes. I'm not sure this product repairs sun damage or reverses fine lines and winkles in the long run...but it does not eliminate redness or irritation at all. [$] for 50 transport pads... i don't think it worths the money...but i got this as a free comprehensive gift and not sure i will finish it up.

        Comments about Somme Institute Transport, 50 ea:

        After having Somme Transport for about two months now, I'm not sure how effective it really is. I'm in my mid-30s and my skin is still in relatively good condition. However, it's hardly perfect. I purchased Transport (and Serum and A-Bomb) to improve the appearance of some fine lines on my forehead, and unfortunately, I can't tell a difference after using it (or the rest of the Somme skincare regimen for that matter). Perhaps it is effective for more nagging problems, but as correction for fine lines, the results are either too subtle to detect or nonexistent.

          I thought this would dry out my skin after the first use, but I followed it with my daily oil routine then Somme Institute's A Bomb ...Holly Wow... Balanced, Softest Ever, Moisturized skin! Now after two weeks my pores are smaller, finer lines are diminished, and my face is the softest it's ever been. I will be sticking with this product through the end! LOVE LOVE LOVE
          ...with that said, I may go broke.

            With purchase of this Somme Institute Transport, I received a freebie Somme Institute Serum. The combination of these two products has really improved the texture of my skin. Pores on my nose are noticably smaller & clog free. Skin is very smooth & I have had no irritation of my sensitive skin.

              I love this line. I started with a travel kit to try it out (it is so expensive I wanted to be sure...). Didn't love the creme cleanser or the sunscreen/moisturizer (smelled too much like sunscreen), but the pads/serum/a bomb combo works wonders for me. After 10+ years on the pill I decided to get off and my skin just went bonkers with the hormonal shift, this is the only thing I have found that helps me combat my relapse into teenage skin problems. Only con is the price, but frankly I don't even care anymore I'm so addicted.

                I first tried this product while getting a facial at a spa in MA. My skin felt toned but not tight; clean but not stripped of moisture. The visible signs were evident; my pores seemed to shrink to half their size; lines were reduced; redness seemed to disappear; I was glowing! The technician instructed me to cut the pads in half to get the most for my money. She also told me to gently squeeze each pad over the jar prior to each use to prolong the product...I took it one step further by then using what was left of the product on my hands to sweep across my chest since it is good to the last drop! I have become a "hoarder" of sorts with this product as I have stocked up each time it is on sale. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

                  LOVE this line. Have seen incredible improvements in skin texture and diminishment of lines and adult acne. Use with the A-bomb serum and moisturizer. The neck cream is also the best - and works as a firming eye cream too. Fantastic value on these products for what they do - which is more than any product line i've ever tried, including La mer and Dr Sebagh. People keep telling me how great my skin looks.

                        First, let me say that I am extremely cynical when it comes to beauty claims. I would not have paid the price for this product so luckily I received it as a GWP. This is the most amazing product I have ever used. Yes, it has minimal packaging and no instructions but that just led me to read several reviews and go to the Somme website. By doing my research I was able to learn how to use the product correctly. Unfortunately, the few negative reviews below did not use the product properly and therefore were led to a bad review. The product with usage consistently will produce:
                        1st 2-3 weeks: Breakouts (because it is cleaning out the pores from the inside out)
                        3 to 6 weeks: you will begin to notice a remarkably smother and brighter complexion. Brown spots will begin to lighten.
                        ****When I first read people say 'brighter' I thought exactly what does that mean? I will try to explain it from my perspective....It is like you have a cloud of dirt on your face that is removed.
                        6 to 12 weeks: Sun damage and pores are dramatically reduced.

                        I feel like I have found a miracle product and I would not have believed it myself if I had not used it. But, it does require consistency and a bit of patience to get through the first couple weeks of break outs and tingling. I would highly recommend this product from someone who has 41 year old skin, lived in FL her whole life (major sun damage) and has significant adult acne.

                          I have very good skin but since using both the transport pads and the A Bomb my skin has gone from good to great. I've been using them for almost one month now and my fine lines are getting less noticeable, and my skin is much more soft and supple. I have not found it to be irritating in the least but I am almost olive complected and my face is not sensitive at all.

                            I was a lttle unsure about trying this at first becuase of the cost, but it's well worth it...I'm even considering trying more products from Somme Institute. Seeing how the product is so expensive, I've only been using it at night while continuing to use my regular toner in the mornings. I have combo skin- oily in some areas and dry in others. These pads make my skin feel great all over. They have noticeably helped even out my skin tone, cleared up minor blemishes, and have lessened the appearance of fine lines/creases (which I have mainly experienced in my forehead area). I will definitely recommend this to my friends and family.
