I've been recommend Arcona products by an esthetician friend. Already had some products but wanted something for ocasional acne, redness, large pores, blackheads. This kit is pretty good. Especially if you don't want to commit to full size products. Also, some of them will run out sooner than others so you'll know what you need full size. I can see improvement as far as blackheads and occasional acne. That's more than any other products I've used before. Arcona is a great brand, and LovelySkin was great delivering within couple days.
