Exposed Skincare Kit?

I bought the more extensive kit, but the "extras" are either not needed or I don't like them so much. I use the "facial cleanser" usually 2 times a day, the "clearing tonic" most mornings (I like this) and the "clear pore serum" some nights (I've decreased how frequently I use this. If I notice patches of acne starting, I'll use it, but not over my entire face so much anymore.) I followed their "regimen" closely the first month.
I definitely need a moisturizer, but theirs smells a bit rancid to me! I'm curious if others have had this experience. I think I may return it and try another bottle, and if it's the same, then I'll have to find something else, as I don't like that smell.
I've used the "acne treatment serum" two times on incoming giant blemishes... and both times they were gone in the morning. So this won't get used often, but I'm glad to have it as it seems to work when needed.
I don't like the "microderm scrub". It is much finer (and harsher) than other "scrubs" I've used... feels like tiny grains of sand... lots of it. And it also smells a bit rancid to me. That will be returned. And I wasn't that thrilled with the facial mask. I don't think they really do much for me anyway.
I contacted them via email about returning part of the order. I was told I could return the whole thing within a year no matter how much of it I'd used, for a full refund. I'd like to return the items I don't like only... we'll see how easy that process is.
That's my experience so far. My main question is about whether other people have experienced the "rancid" smell esp. w/ the moisturizer. It's within the "expiration date". I wonder if that's just the smell it has or if it is indeed "rancid". Ugh. More online research to do on this.

I follow the regimen relatively closely but only use the cleanser once a day (at night) instead of twice as it can be quite drying. In the morning I wash my face in the shower using a Clean & Clear morning burst wash. After my shower, I apply the exposed clearing tonic to a cotton pad and wipe all over my face and neck. While my face is still slightly moist I apply the acne treatment serum to any blemishes I have, but only a very small amount. Once it's completely dry I use the exposed moisturiser (mine doesn't have a bad smell at all it smells fine! And is really soothing on my skin)
At night I remove my make up with Liz Earle cleanse & polish hot cloth cleanser (I also credit this cleanser for helping clear up my sensitive skin, amazing!) and then wash my face with the exposed cleanser. After I dry my face I apply the exposed clear pore serum all over my face and let it dry. I LOVE this stuff!! It's helped clear up my pimples, calmed down my redness and helped fade my super red scars from previous cysts that I thought would never fade.
If I have any active pimples I use to acne treatment serum again on those areas, but only a very thin layer as it can be really drying.
This stuff has really helped keep my acne under control and my skin is the best it's looked in 10 years since my first acne breakout. I think exposed even carry a money back guarantee if their products don't work for you so you have nothing to lose!
