Good Genes Review Continued…
I have tried every over-the-counter acne clearing product under the sun. In the end, I had an over-processed and over-exfoliated face. It was dry, red, hyperpigmented and extremely tight from lack of moisture. Enter the gift from heaven – GOOD GENES. I first used Good Genes as directed (5 nights in a row) and immediately saw a remarkable difference in the quality of my skin. Over the next couple of months I figured out the best routine for using it with my skin, which is the following:
- Apply 2-3 pumps every night after cleansing and using a toner.
- Let it sit alone for a minute or two so that it can fully absorb.
- Follow with night cream or moisturizer.
- Take a break from using it for about one week, at least every three weeks to a month.
The Result – I have noticed a significant plumping of fine lines, a reduction in sun damage, an improvement in overall clarity, and an a definite increase in firmness. I’m in LOVE!
I should note the reason I take a week or two ‘break’ from using Good Genes is because its’ considered an acid treatment, and using it TOO much can make your face a little raw. Additionally, even though Sunday Riley says Good genes is “Lightly Hydrating,” I would still highly recommend always following this treatment with a moisturizer – since it literally peels away the dead skin cells, revealing a newer and fresher layer of skin.
FINAL THOUGHT: I would absolutely, without a doubt recommend this exquisite product, because it actually WORKS! My favorite thing about Good Genes is the fact that it makes all my other products work better – that’s because Good Genes creates a smoother, brighter and firmer canvas (my face). Although this product is expensive, it’s worth every penny!
