Sunday Riley Good Genes

Sunday Riley Good Genes is a product I’ve sort of discussed on the blog before, but I haven’t done a real post on it.
Here it is. My glorious, beauteous, miracle worker.

From the website: “What it is:
A clarifying, line smoothing lactic acid treatment.

Solutions for:
– Dullness and uneven texture
– Dark spots
– Fine lines and wrinkles

If you want to know more…
Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment is formulated with high potency, purified grade lactic acid that immediately exfoliates dull, pore-clogging dead skin cells, revealing smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin. Fine lines appear visually plumped while the skin looks more radiant. With continued use, the appearance of stubborn hyperpigmentation and the visible signs of aging are reduced for a healthier-looking complexion. Perfect for all skin types and all ages, this treatment is enhanced with licorice for brightening, Good Genes clarifies, smooths, and retexturizes for instant radiance.”

I consider this to be a mild skin resurfacer. It is labelled an AHA treatment. It’s much milder than my treasured Ole Henriksen Invigorating Nighttime Treatment, but still effective. I find that it doesn’t irritate or sting if I have a small cut or sensitive area on my face.

My skin looks smoother, more radiant, plumper, and brighter after a week of use. My skin does look like it has improved texture, and the fine lines on my forehead are gone.

The one sad thing about this product is the staggering price tag: $85. I suppose each person has to make up their mind and decide is the price is worth it to them. I think it’s worth it. I started out with the smaller bottle and I have already repurchased the full size version.

INGREDIENTS:

-High Potency, Purified Grade Lactic Acid: Exfoliates dull, pore-clogging dead skin cells to instantly clarify and reveal smoother, clearer, younger-looking skin, while fighting visible signs of hyperpigmentation.
-Licorice (Glycyrrhiza Glabra): Naturally brightens the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
-Lemongrass: Helps boost radiance.
-Aloe: Helps soothe the skin.

  1. I have been using this one for several years now, not every day, but around once a week. It is an amazing treatment, I agree with you.
