That being said, Good Genes is a truly amazing product, and when used correctly it can last a fair amount of time and you can relatively get your money’s worth. I have sensitive skin and I didn’t find it to be too harsh for even daily use. I recommend, however, it to be used every other day. A pea sized amount is fine for the entire face. Uneven skin tone, mild acne, dullness will all diminish as you incorporate this product into your routine. I personally found after about 2-3 months of use my skin was to a point where I no longer needed it.
It is a phenomenal product though and if you have the money for it, its worth it. (also it can be found in a few sampler sets which can be good for generally testing out if how her products work for you before you invest).
I thought the sample would only give me one or two nights of trying it but Ive used it three times already and have plenty of it left. I think a little goes a long way.
I wasnt sure about the hype surrounding this product but I have got to say that i actually love it. I don't get the "seeing results in 3 hours" part as when its on my skin it seems to actually be drying my skin out more. I can notice dehydration lines when its on.
However the next day after I rinse it off and apply my normal skincare routine my skin looks AMAZING! My fine lines around the mouth and forehead are practically non existent. Skin looks smoother and more radiant. My skin has a perfect, flawless look and a healthy glow.
I still have some of my sample left and I think I might actually want to buy this or at least find a good dupe.
hate that I love this product. At $105 per oz, this product is
highway robbery. It also works wonders for many skin types, including
my own, which is why I’m torn. Good
Genes should be thought of as an instant or overnight facial in a
bottle, not really a daily-use lactic acid. It
only contains 5% LA
pH level is a low 2.6. The low pH level releases more of the acid to
exfoliate your skin immediately, but it also increases the risk of
irritation. Good Genes contains a ton of temporary brightening and
soothing ingredients that help to counter irritation and give you
instant glow. The first few times I used it I was stunned that I
could exfoliate at night and wake up with skin that was so smooth and
calm. It’s those ingredients that make Good Genes a cult classic.
I’ve had a LOT of success with other lactic acid treatments, but
Good Genes works instantly (I mean, within 8 hours you’ll see a
difference!) It’s what I call “special event” skincare,
something I would use the night before my wedding perhaps. For daily
use, Good Genes is highly unnecessary unless you want perfect skin
I am knocking a point off for both the price and
the fact that Good Genes has such a low ph. The lower the ph, the
more likely it is to irritating. I suggest that sensitive skin users
look elsewhere for their lactic acid needs. For everyone else, this
product is amazing, but it should be reserved for special occasions.
tips: slowly introduce acids to your skin. Straight out of the gate without using products of this strength could give your skin a reaction.
I recommend mixing with your moisturizer every other day, then work up to every day, and then finally alone under your moisturizer. Do this over at least one month before using alone and you’ll see and feel a huge difference! Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment
