Which dumbbells should you choose?
The weight you use depends on your skill level and the muscles being worked.
There's a right weight for every skill level. You should be able to complete your reps but be tired at the end.
Your lower-body muscles (thighs, buttocks, etc.) are larger than your upper-body muscles (shoulders, biceps, etc.)
You should therefore use heavier weights for squats and lunges (from 2kg) and a lighter load for your smaller upper-body muscles (1kg).

How to improve your performance with these dumbbells
It's important that you always start by fully warming up your body using lighter weights so that your body will be ready for your workout and won't get injured.
Beginners should start with light weights (1 kg) until they learn the right technique.
Once you're familiar with the moves, you can gradually increase your weight (by 500g each time) every other session.
Vary your training for increased effectiveness
Experiment with the amplitude, load and speed of your movements!
