I love that it is a whole system. I know which products to apply and in exactly what order to apply them in. The packaging is simple, and very easy to understand. I have combination to oily skin, and was pleasantly surprised that the moisturizer did not make me too oily throughout the day. I have used pro active before and this is supposed to be compared to pro active. I would say that it is very comparable. It is unscented and I actually hardly smell anything. There is no fragrance at all. Effectiveness It cleans my face and neck so well. My skin afterwards does not burn, or even appear red. I have sensitive skin so some times that does happen to me. I really like the effectiveness of the moisturizer. It keeps me well moisturized without making me oily. Ease of Application It is so easy to apply since it gIves you the steps to follow. No thinking required. Immediacy I saw results in a little bit over a week. It worked very quickly compared to other products I have tried.
