Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best! I love this kit! I have been using philosophy skincare for about 11 years now, and this is one area I will not scrimp on. this set is a great value and a good selection of great products - the best place to start if you have never used philosophy before. I use purity at night to remove all my makeup (including mascara!), moisturize with hope in a jar (or hope in a bottle if I'm breaking out), hope in a tube on my eyes and lip area, and some kiss me on my lips. In the morning I use the microdermabrasion cleanser to "wake up" my skin and have a nice smooth surface for make-up if I decide to wear it. I apply hope in a jar again and hope in a tube or when hope is not enough (spf 25) around my eyes. I use a soft eyeshadow brush to apply around my eyes so i get a good, even coat and know it is applied gently (i always forget to use my ring finger and dab, a brush really helps me). I use the microdelivery peel peel at least once a week (weekend treat - love the way it warms on my skin), and two or three times a week during a certain time of the month when I tend to break out more. My next step may be adding the serum to my routine. I haven't tried it yet, as this kit plus some hope in a bottle has served me beautifully for years. I am now 40 and was recently asked to see an id to get into a concert! I started my step-daughter on philosophy when she was a teenager and she is still using it as a senior in college and she never had the problems with her skin that other kids had. we have each tried to save money at some time and bought drugstore products, but they are not worth it - our skin breaks out and we both go running back to philosophy. If you can't do anything else, just make sure you are using purity and hope in a jar. You will see a difference in your skin in a week and will want to use all the philosophy products. THis is a great set - do not hesitate to buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great starting kit for those new to the brand! I purchased this kit about two weeks ago and I am already loving how my skin feels. The micro delivery resurfacing peel and two facial washes are worth price alone! I had tried the purity made simple facial wash and pore extractor mask previously and absolutely loved both, so I thought I would give a couple of other products a try. I really like the texture and feel of both the eye cream and hope in a jar moisturizer, however the smell of the hope in a jar is a bit too strong for me. That said it makes my skin feel baby soft, so I am still using it at night. I'll definitely be reordering the peel and face washes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything in it is worth the money This set has been great. I love the smell of Purity, personally. Sometimes cleansers leave me feeling stripped and tight, but this is gentle enough for my skin while still getting all the makeup or sunscreen off of my face. The hope in a jar moisturizer is my favorite and I love the smell, I pause to enjoy it while I'm putting it on. Often moisturizers feel too heavy on me, or leave me too shiny- but this one feels completely amazing. I love it. The little eye cream feels super nice, and I can use such a small amount for both eyes and my lips. I imagine it lasting quite a while. The real kicker of this set is the vitamin c duo though, I'm so glad I got it. My face feels so smooth and fresh I can barely keep my hands off it. Again, everything from Philosophy seems to smell really incredible. This is a great kit and honestly I'll probably get it again and again. I loved everything in it. I used to get drug store face washes and creams, and the idea of dropping this kind of money on stuff I hadn't tried before would've been unthinkable- but I was able to try out the face wash and moisturizer that a friend had purchased and it sealed the deal for me. If you can try little travel sizes or samplers, I think you'll see what I mean.
