Love the tinted moisturizer. Kind of "Meh" on the serum. Have had break outs... The tinted moisturizer is the 1st I have ever used that did not go shiney after noon with my oily skin and did not puddle in my large pores making me look like a Lichtenstien. Hope I can but them separately in future.

I looked at this item for several weeks before purchasing. Finally when I saw the duo AND it was on easy pay I decided to go for it. I have large pores, uneven skin tone/texture and am starting to notice fine lines and wrinkles. I have been using this for about 3 weeks and I see absolutely no difference in my skin. The tinted moisturizer is not really a moisturizer as another person commented. I feel like I need to put a moisturizer under it. I don't see any change in my skin after using it. It's almost like an extra step for no reason. I should have known better. I have never had much luck with this skin care line and I'm starting to think they are a bunch of hype. The only things I really did like were the Purity Gel cleanser and the Take a Deep Breath Moisturizer. But I am out of both now and won't re-purchase. I think I can get the same result from an unscented drugstore brand for less money. I'm giving it 2 stars only because the serum is light and refreshing and I'm hoping to see at least some results the longer I use it.

I had my eye on the No Reason To Hide serum for a while, and when I saw this duo I couldn't order fast enough. Unfortunately, all is not right here.
The star of this set is the moisturizer, although it's not moisturizing enough to actually be one. Instead, I applied it as a makeup base on top of my moisturizer and it created a flawless, beautiful canvas. The light shade matched my fair skin tone well, the consistency was light with light coverage. My skin was brightened, pores appeared smaller, and it wore well all day.
The serum, on the other hand, does not play well with other products. My usual morning routine is cleanse > tone > BHA exfoliant > serum > moisturizer. The No Reason To Hide serum, which is more lotion than serum, pilled horribly when other products were applied before or after it. Because of that, I only used it nightly and on its own, but after 2+ weeks of consistent use I don't see even a hint of change in my skin.
All in all, I really wanted to love this duo, but it'll be going back tomorrow.

I've been wanting to try the No Reason To Hide (NRTH) moisturizer for awhile now, so the value of this set prompted me to try both that and the serum. FYI: I'm nearly 40 with fine expression lines, uneven skin tone, combination acne-prone skin, tending toward dry in the winter. This set is not moisturizing enough for me. The serum, which is more like a very light lotion in texture, seems to have caused more dryness, possibly due to the alcohol content (listed as the third ingredient and likely high enough to cause some irritation and free radical damage). It has an impressive list of other ingredients, sinks in nicely, and skin is smooth to the touch after application. However, my skin stills feel tight. The moisturizer's tint provides sheer coverage, slightly evens out my skin, and impressively masks pores. However, it does not cover acne marks or considerable skin discoloration. So, if you looking for a tinted moisturizer with moderate coverage, this isn't it. It appeared to have a dry finish as well, which I did not like. The two combined just left my skin feeling dry and accentuated dry patches and lines, though my pores looked good and skin somewhat more even. HOWEVER, I liked this moisturizer MUCH better when I added a drop of Josie Maran's argan oil to it. The finish and effect was so much better. Overall, the moisturizer is nice...not heavy, slightly tinted, good sunscreen...so if you use a very moisturizing serum prior to or mixed with, it can work for skin on the drier side. I imagine oily skin types will really like this set, and the products have not caused breakouts for me. I probably will return and purchase the NRTH moisturizer separately from elsewhere. I don't want to continue experimenting with the serum due to the high alcohol content and low moisturizing properties.
