My curiosity got the best of me. I've been wondering about this thing-a-ma-jig so I bought the one at Costco. You know, Costco always has the "value" package. Who doesn't appreciate a good value?:D On a scale of 1-5 I give it a 3. Maybe 3.5. The cleansing pads smell nice and my face felt supple (now there's a word for ya) upon completion. I don't know, I guess I want to be able to use my cleanser of choice so I still want THIS one.
