I was skeptical going in, but I've been pleasantly surprised. I had a huge hormonal breakout when I decided to purchase this. After months of expensive sulfur, salycyclic acid, benzoyl peroxide, tea tree, neem oil, witch hazel, rose water, charcoal washes... I wasn't expecting much. This kit has really improved the condition of my skin and has actually prevented future break outs. I love the tingle of the peppermint oil & salycyclic acid in the face wash, I can really feel it working (especially after a steam or shower). It's a great routine and very simple compared to my 10-step beauty method I previously used... Which became so overwhelming, I stopped doing it as often which resulted in worse skin. Definitely recommend!!!
