Who was it that first said, “Do you ever feel like a plastic bag, drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?”
Ah yes, Katy Perry.
I never fully understood what the hell she was talking about — possibly because I’m often distracted by whatever dangerous contraptions are cradling her breasts at any given point…she’s sartorially fearless and amazing — but when Leandra first started using Somme Institute and her skin started looking dewier than a dew baby, and I had to look at it every single day, I suddenly realized that I felt like a plastic bag. Or at least my skin did. And both of us, my epidermis and I, wanted to start again.
So I copied Leandra and bought Somme too. And I am telling you, scout’s honor with my hand to my heart, that it changed my face. Dry skin: bye. Pimples: bye. Questionable patches of where-did-you-come-from red: bye. For reals.
You may be like, “Ahh! I can’t spend money on my face! What about my shoes?” Well, Somme is offering a 40% discount for Man Repeller readers through Nov 27 (promo code: ManRepeller) which is really nice of them because now, each morning, we can all brush our teeth and touch our newly birthed skin and sing, “Baby, you’re a firework.”
