Product Review (submitted on May 21, 2014):
Great basic starter kit!
After about a year of playing with the Murad Acne line I had an awful breakout and decided enough was enough. I'd always heard rave reviews about Kate Somerville but was skeptical given my skin's tendency to hate everything I use. I was shocked to see that the cleanser and moisturizer calmed my skin down and my red marks and blemishes started to heal literally over night. I was put on Accutane as a 15 year old and while my skin remains pretty clear, I still get acne on my chin and occasional cysts at 22 and my post-acne hyperpigmentation, those stubborn red marks that pimples leave, usually stick around for at least a week after. The cleanser is great and not too drying for me to use 3 times a day (I use it after my mid-day workout) but is somehow still very effective and the moisturizer works but doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy. The spot treatment helped but I wish they included trial sizes of the Anti-Bac lotion or Hydrating Acne Gel in this kit because I also need a topical treatment. I just tried the Exfolikate Acne and I really like it, left my skin feeling clean but not dry and the tingling effect made me feel like it was really working. A great kit especially for the price! But you may need another topical treatment as well depending on how bad your acne is.
