The duo consists of the gomme age (scrub) in the blue tube and a hand serum in the silver tube. I only needed about a dime-sized worth of the bright aqua blue scrub, mixed with a bit of water, to get an amazing exfoliating emulsion. This is a sugar and salt based scrub, with the right amount of actives and oils to make the scrub really effective, yet not too harsh. After about 30 seconds of applying the scrub in a circular motion on both hands, the grains from the sugar and salt then evaporated and I was left with a very moisturizing, glossy finish to my hands. After rinsing them with water my hands were baby soft, smooth and felt hydrated and plump from the oils left behind.
Next, I applied the serum, which is more of a light cream/serum blend in texture. Again, only a dime's worth was needed to cover both of my hands. It felt lighter than a hand lotion on my hands, but still hydrating. The serum soaked in after about a minute and left no film or stickiness. After about 3 weeks of using the kit 3x week my hands were softer, glowing, had a much more even tone, and even my nail beds and cuticles looked better!
The tubes are a very "bag friendly" size, which means that for a beauty treat you can still pack these in your gym bag for a post- work out/spa visit hand treatment, and of course in your air travel carry-on to give yourself a little boost before you land at your destination! - RLB
