Let's face it, these products aren't cheap, which is okay if they work. I am new to Dermatologica but so far I have been very impressed and believe the price is worth the product. I decided to purchase this kit for 3 reasons. 1) I didn't want to spend a fortune on products I wasn't sure about, 2) I love that there are a variety of products for me to test out and 3) my main issue is adult acne, I do not want to buy large bottles of ultra calming products when I won't be using them every day. This kit so far had been great. I am a fan of every product in the kit and only use them when my skin feels a bit irritated. I may purchase some of these products in the larger sizes but for sure I will purchase this kit again. Also, the sizes are great for travel. I have a variety of the Dermatologica kits and I can easily bring all of my products because they are just the right size. I can go on a business trip and feel confident I will have the right product based on my skin's needs at that time.
