"I had a usual nighttime skincare routine which included a gentle liquid cleanser and a hydrating moisturizer but I was feeling like it was time to switch things up (was it finally time for me to use an "anti-aging" product?). Luckily Birchbox (well, my daughter who works at Birchbox) asked me to test Good Genesthough I was skeptical since my skin is very sensitive. Now I am a devoted user and its biggest fan! I've gone to the dermatologist every year for the past few years to help treat dry, red patches on my forehead and chin. She suggested I try hydrocortisonewhich workedhowever, it wasn't a long-term solution. She also told me that the only way to permanently get rid of the redness and irritation was to have an in-office laser treatment which I wasn't quite ready to do.
At first I used it three times a week, applying it after cleansing my face and before my moisturizer. After only two weeks I noticed an incredible difference in my skin. I've been using it every night for the past eight months and the change in my skin has been transformativeI no longer have to use any medication to help treat redness of dryness. It's clear that adding this product into my routine is the reason my skin has improved. I am now hooked!"
