When it comes to beauty, It’s always better to invest in good skincare, rather than makeup. Question is, how much are you willing to invest?
Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment ($105.00) is an all-in-one lactic acid brightening, multitasking, radiance treatment and mask. While I love using this as a serum at night, at this price, I haven’t tried using this as a mask treatment- I’d just feel awful about dispensing recommended five pumps and then rinsing the product off after 30 minutes. Yikes!
“Everyone wants the unmistakable look of having good genes. This hydrating treatment is formulated with key ingredients that plump the look of fine lines to reveal brighter, renewed skin, and support natural circulation to create a smooth, vibrant complexion. Long term use will help restore damaged skin, reduce hyperpigmentation and scars, reduce the depth and number of lines and wrinkles, even out skintone, and increase skin firmness.”
What I love:
-first thing’s first- the packaging- it comes in a glass bottle that has a pump, which, as you can guess, I love.
-brings overnight results- I noticed that my skin looked brighter after a very first use
-helps with healing acne scars/age spots
-leaves skin feeling very smooth
-delivers on most claims made on the packaging- the results are very impressive
-a little bit goes a long way- this serum is very potent and one pump is all I need to treat my face and neck
What I don’t love:
-if you have sensitive skin, you might find this serum a bit irritating
-it’s pricey, I know, and the truth is, I will most likely repurchase this serum, but I do want to mention that with nightly use (meaning using only one pump daily, at bedtime) my bottle is almost empty and I’ve been using it for only about two weeks.
Here’s the thing, I really, really love this serum. I think it’s perfect for anyone who suffers from dull skin or hyper pigmentation. The only problem that I have, as I just mentioned above, is that the bottle lasted me for only two weeks. This is why I’d have trouble recommending this, because while it does bring amazing results, I know that not everyone can afford to splurge on a product like this one. I think that there are a ton of really good AHA products out there that are much more affordable, but at the same time, I haven’t come across a product this impressive, in a very long time.
I had problematic skin, for as long as I can remember and I can’t tell you how much money I’ve spent over the years on high-end products that did absolutely nothing for my skin. The Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment is different. I’m definitely impressed and will repurchase.
