Instead, I was blessed with super-sensitive skin, large pores and unsightly acne well into my 20s and 30s. My skin used to flush just looking at the ‘St Ives’ Apricot Facial Scrub that all my friends were using. I clearly needed something a little less abrasive.
So, imagine my elation when I first came face-to-face with Good Genes from the much-hyped Sunday Riley line on a recent Vegas trip. Seriously, I was practically doing back flips in Barneys!
Why We Love Good Genes
After testing this dreamy chemical exfoliant (no harsh scrubbing here!) for a mere 5 days, I knew the hype was true and that Sunday Riley Good Genes is an easy-to-use at-home treatment akin to perfect, glowy skin in a bottle. This ‘holy grail status’ serum turned my dull and crazy sensitive skin glowing and bright, right before my eyes. Suddenly, my pores were tighter, my skin tone more even and, a miracle to behold, no more PMS face! Long story short, it gave me the skin I wish was in ‘my genes’.
For a luminous glow, I apply one pump of Good Genes on my freshly cleansed skin at night, and top with my favorite skin oil (Sunday’s Juno is ideal) or cream moisturizer to really lock in the ‘goodness’. It can also be used as an intensive 5-day treatment before a big event to perfect, brighten and even your skin. Or, for those with sensitive skin, try mixing one pump of Good Genes with your cream or gel cleanser and applying as a mask for 5 minutes. You will be thrilled with the results!
One pump of this lactic-acid infused wonder works to plump up fine lines, eradicate hyper-pigmentation and redness, eliminate sun damage and reveal the brighter and newer skin you knew was under there somewhere. Good Genes delivers results that will make you jump up and down with joy (I know I did!). You will also be happy to know that the entire Sunday Riley line is made without yucky sulfates or synthetics. Trust me, it’s a game changer.
