Absolutely love these products. My skin has always been very dehydrated and no matter what I tried it seemed like nothing would work. Everything was always too rich or oily. These products are light on the skin and incredibly hydrating. My skin looks fresher and softer and my makeup sits a lot better on my skin now. I have quite sensitive skin and I had no adverse reactions to any of the products, which was surprising. Definitely will be buying the full size kit next.
