Skin Changing Holy Grail!
Purchased

This product is one of the four that I use that I consider my "Holy Grail" regimen. Good Genes is an amazing product that has not only evened out my overall skin tone, but has taken my acne prone skin down to not a single break-out since starting it! I have also noticed a significant difference in the appearance of fine and deeper lines/wrinkles. I noticed a change after one use, and I'm not kidding. My face is definitely brighter and I have been getting mega compliments on how awesome my skin looks since I started using it in my routine. I use it twice daily (which is actually more than the recommended once daily on clean/dry skin). I use it very sparingly in my a.m. routine (1/4 pump), and then I use about a 1/2 pump in the evening and follow it with the Sunday Riley Luna Night Oil (another Holy Grail product) and they work seemlessly together. I would highly recommend this product to anyone experiencing break-outs (no matter what the cause), dullness, and for anyone looking to overhaul their skin. It has worked wonders for me and it is worth every single penny of its higher end price range.

Life changing!!

I have been struggling with acne/post-acne scars for the better part of 10 years. After a few nights of using this treatment, they're practically gone! It's amazing how quickly it works. I'm not a huge fan of the smell, but it's a very small trade off for the miracle work it's done on my stubborn skin!

Noticeable difference

I love this product!! I am acne prone and it always calms is almost instantly. I wish the full size wasn’t so expensive, I would always keep this in stock in my routine.

Six Stars if I could
Sampled

I was a little skeptical reading raving reviews about this product - like how much could a product do in 3 mins? But I was wrong! My face felt immediately smoother, plumper and refreshed as soon as I washed this off! It's truly magical.

Amazing

Seriously - this stuff transforms your skin. I first came across it at a local beauty shop and fell in love. I have since seen it all over the place with great reviews. Try it - you won't be disappointed!

GAME CHANGER
SampledPurchased

This is my #1 favorite product I've ever received from Birchbox. I have been a member for two years now, and if i had to choose one product to use over and over, it would be this. It makes my skin feel smooth and plump and i can actually feel it working! My favorite way to use this product is after i have exfoliated and used an essence. I feel like it really soaks into my skin a lot better. After it has soaked in for about five minutes, I go in with a soothing oil. This is THE BEST skin care routine I have had to date! thanks birchbox!

so so love it

I have dark spots and have pigmented skin...nothing brightens it like lactic acid...especially this one! But it is too pricey ... have to go with natural milk for now.

Great for aging skin
Sampled

I’ll be 40 in about 5 months and I just went through a depressed that kept me from taking care of my skin.
Now that I’m back to my routine I noticed yuck skin. This helped perk my skin right back up. I use this in combination with other products but I can definitely tell a difference that this product makes because if I don’t use it it’s noticeable. This in combination with a home peel facial twice a week has shrunk my pores and cleared my skin up. I swap this out with another aha lotion throughout the week and this one is by far my favorite . The scent is off putting but it’s worth using it regardless. My moisturizer and sunscreen ends up making the scent go away.

Save your pennies and buy!
Purchased

Good Genes really does live up the rave 5-star reviews that it has. My skin has never felt smoother and within the 2 short weeks that I've started using it, more radiant than ever. It does have a unique smell to it, but I use it at night and apply a night cream after it, so it does not bother me much. I have combination skin and get dry in the winter time, but it hasn't caused any issues and has been able to use it every day without irritation! Being a frugal lady, I was hesitant to spend this much on this small amount of product, but after the great things it's done to my face, I will gladly splurge!

Works but Oily
Sampled

It does what it says-lightens. Not just the dark spots either. Additionally, I have oily skin to begin with and this just makes it worse. My face feels greasy most of the time. It does have a bit of a smell to it but it didn’t bother me as much as it might bother others.
