Basically, I tried it, absolutely loved it, and just had to buy it. I only bought:
-Foaming Creme Cleanser $24
-Charged Essence Serum $40
-Deep UltraMoisture Creme $38
I figured I can save some $ by not buying the Active Softening Lotion $30 a.k.a. toner since I use my Clairasonic nightly.
I totally recommend that you try this line out. Ask for a sample at MAC and see if it works for you!!!
