Pretty good, but not the best

I came back home from traveling all summer which did a number on my skin, especially as far as acne/overall texture. I've been dealing with lots of skin-colored bumps all over my cheeks, which is a new problem for me, although I've always battled acne and blackheads.

The cleanser in this trio is fine, but I've since found one I like better (less drying to my skin). It works well with the serum though, and together, my skin was clearing without drying out, as can happen with some harsher acne treatment products. The bottom line for the cleanser for me is that it's fine, but not amazing.

The serum is by far my favorite product in this line up. However, I have to use it all over my face, so while I was seeing improvement in my complexion, it ran out rather quickly (in 2-3 weeks) and is rather expensive to replace.

The cream is so small that I didn't have much of a chance to evaluate it. However, from what I could gather, it wasn't good for my skin. When I used it in the morning and then applied makeup, it balled up under my makeup, making the application of makeup VERY difficult. The other issue is that it feels kind of heavy on my skin, and after applying it, I experience an unpleasant burning sensation for a few minutes, which then subsides. I have since found a few moisturizers that work far better for my oily/acne prone skin.

The bottom line for me: I would purchase the serum again to use as a spot treatment in conjunction with other products I own, as it is rather effective on my skin for clearing acne. I would not, however, repurchase the cleanser and cream, unless it was in this particular kit which only costs a few more dollars than the serum alone.
