Glowing Skin! Good Genes by Sunday Riley Review
Good Evening Everyone!
Today I wanted to do a quick review of the Sunday Riley Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment. I LOVE this stuff--it is amazing for the skin and literally this treatment will make your skin look like new again.
A breakdown of what the product is: it is essentially a serum to be used with your skin care routine. It does contain one highly potent ingredient--lactic acid and works to change the texture of the skin while also brightening and reducing the appearance of fine lines.
What is lactic acid?
Lactic Acid is actually found in sour milk and in skincare is considered an alpha hydroxy acid. It is a pretty powerful ingredient in skincare and really does help in smoothing out the texture of skin and reducing discoloration. Since this stuff is so strong it is recommended that you be careful with it. There is some concern that this product (when used excessively overtime) can react with the sun and actually increase age. Now that is only true if you are ONLY using lactic acid on it's own and not how it is formulated into Good Genes.
My Experience with Good Genes:
I am a skincare junkie and I love finding out about new products, and about two years ago I was looking for a strong serum. As I was scrolling through the serums category on sephora.com I noticed that this one had good reviews and addressed my skincare concerns of dark spots. I also saw that my fav Youtube Gurus, the pixiwoo sisters, were talking about it, so I decided to give it a try.
I initially purchased the value pack which contained half an ounce of the Luna Sleeping Oil with half an ounce of the Good Genes Treatment. After I cleansed my face I would use my toner, apply the serum, the oil, and then my moisturizer and oh my god! The first thing I noticed was how soft my skin felt within the first few hours. The next morning my face was glowing! After using it for a few weeks it looked like I had new baby skin again. This stuff is powerful and it really will change your skin! With continued use it really does address a lot of skin concerns--including acne. My only hesitation on it, honestly, would be the smell. It does not smell nice at all but the results that it provides are fantastic beyond belief!
I apply this every night and I think it is one of the main reasons my skin can look fine without the need for foundation. Below is how my face looks after washing, toning, and applying the serum--also I have dry skin so it works great to hold moisture in--I do apply a small amount of moisturizer to lock everything in however as a last step.
Reasons why the Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment is an Upsnaa PIck:
- Helps to make skin's texture softer and smoother
- Helps brighten the skin
- Helps moisturize the skin
- Helps to keep acne away
- Helps to renew the skin and start afresh
