To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The foot lotion is very runny you need to be very careful when squeezing the tube it goes every where. The bag zipper broke on day one. I've used Gena before the kit came with a foot file this did not. The consistency of the products need tweaking.
I ordered this set to give my boyfriend and I mani/pedis at home. I was worried this would be great in theory but ends up collecting dust in the closet; I tried the whole set this weekend and I'm in love. It smells great, I love the thorough instructions that come in the bag, and the products really do work. My feet were left looking and feeling so clean and soft (I have chronically dry calloused feet). And the bottles are so big, this will last a while. Overall I'm so happy I stumbled onto this product, it would make a wonderful gift for anyone else that like to do their own pedicures.
So if and that is a pretty big if you receive all your merchandise in tact you will find that the products are awesome. I say that because I bought the travel size first and that has everything you get in this kit, biggest differences are this one has bigger containers and is priced for better savings. Other biggest difference is the bottles they use for the product, smaller trial size containers are better made (think of the travel section bottles at Target) and thus when you receive the smaller kit you receive it in tact rather than the pedi soak bursting on everything else. I saw the reviews on this particular kit noticed that the negative reviews were all about the shipping and bursting and not the product themselves so thought that surely that would have been resolved by now or must be a fluke. Its not. They have not fixed the issue at all and to be honest I am not sure whom we the customers can point the blame too. If Gena is aware I'm not sure why they aren't changing the bottle format seeing as how they have way better bottles for all of the other sizes. If there isn't a problem from Gena to the vendors then it could be the vendor to Amazon but if I was Amazon I would just let them know that we wouldn't stock it. Or it could be Amazon itself since I can't understand why if it came to them damaged they would actually box and ship to to us the current customer. So if you want to try the products get the travel size kit and if you like it buy the bigger products individually here. Inconvenient? Yes. A bit pricey up front? Yes. Trade off to that is they are cheaper overall in the bigger sizes and you WILL get your product in good condition.
