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

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
