I got the combo skin try me pack, which includes so much more than they advertise on the website. Depending on what your skin profile says (you fill out a very detailed profile, like what areas you are concerned with, what medications/vitamins you've been taking, etc, etc) what you get may vary.

Here's what came with mine:
2oz Corrective Grains (reg. strength)
2oz Facial Shampoo (reg. strength)
2oz SPF 25
2oz Pink Gelloid
1oz 12% Smoothing Cream (a half ounce more than advertised)
1oz 20% Smoothing Gel (again, a half ounce more than advertised)
1oz Old Lady Cream
A very generous sample of MSSR Redef. Mask (1oz)
Samples of all Fix Zit strengths (2.5%, 5%, 10% and XX w/ sulfur) in small pots
A sample of MSSR 2% in a small pot

I think that's it...all I can remember anyways. It's important to note that you do not need all of these things, especially right away. You will be told to only use your smoothing cream or gel once a day during the day ONLY for the first month. Start off with the 12% cream on normal and dry areas (usually cheeks and under eyes) and the 20% gel on oily areas (forehead, nose) every other day, work your way up to every day and then once you hit a month, you can begin to use them both at night as well.

Your routine will probably be something similar to what I started out with. My routine is very different now since I've adjusted to the products. I don't use MSSR in the morning anymore, and I use the 20% cream all over during the day and the 20% gel all over at night. I also do not need to buffer with Old Lady Cream anymore. But here is probably what you'll be starting out with, depending on what you get and what products you like best:

ice (I just wash with very cold water because I don't like icing too much)
mssr 2% (if you get it - you can use this twice a day or just once, whenever you want. I personally like it at night because it pills up under my makeup)
spf 25
old lady cream to buffer dry areas
12% cream on dry and normal areas
20% gel on oily areas

ice (again, I just use cold water)
mssr 2% (if you get it and want to use it at night)
old lady cream to buffer dry areas
whatever strength of Fix Zit or Miracle Zit you need...I recommend starting out with 5% unless you are sensitive to BP, in which case start out with 2.5% and work up.

This all comes with very detailed instructions but they can be really confusing so I recommend if you decide to get it to start hanging around their forum for advice. The CEO posts there almost every day and will answer all of your emails and even speak with you on the phone if needed.

I'm warning you...there is a very good possibility that you will break out more at first and be very irritated and dry and peeling. This happened to me big time...I was shedding like a snake for about two weeks. But after that, everything cleared up and the dryness went away completely.

The only problem I see with you getting the combo pack is the same problem I don't get enough of the Fix/Miracle Zit. You do get lots of samples of it, but not enough to really gauge how it works. After using up my little pots of 5% and 10% in a week (you use ALOT of it...very thick all over) I just ordered the bottles in full size. I also ordered everything else in full size, so right now I'm up to my ears in Sage. I always fear running out, even though I know I won't for several months because the products (aside from Fix Zit which you will go through like crazy) last a VERY LONG TIME. Everything in your pack should last a full two months - the shampoo, smoothing cream and gel and SPF will last several months after that.

I would say get the acne pack, but that does not come with the smoothing cream and gels (at least they are not advertised) and for me, these are two of the most important things to have. The combo skin pack gives you a little bit of everything so you can tinker with your routine and see what works best for you.

Hope this helps =)
