So $$, I wanted to hate it.

I love to research products extensively before I open them. Sunday Riley was one of those brands that I really didn't want to like. Why? Because the products are SO incredibly expensive. My cheap bone hurts just looking at them. I mean, do I really need a lactic acid treatment that's almost $100 a bottle? Unfortunately, the answer is a resounding yes!
I am a 42 year old woman, and while my skin has never been acne prone, I am genetically predisposed to enlarged pores. I also tend to be dry, and many ingredients push my skin to redden. I thought that meant I would be too sensitive for acids. I was wrong. Acids and gommage exfoliants are perfect for my more sensitive skin. And Good Genes is incredibly well formulated. It sits at the perfect pH to make the acids within it work beautifully without ever being to harsh. Truly amazing product.....just don't help my husband add up how expensive my skincare products are. He just might have a heart attack. 

if this wasn't so expensive I would defiantly buy a full size, I save it for specific occasions and use a bit the night before, it makes my face soft, smooth, and it gets rid of redness

Game Changer!
Purchased

I absolutely love this product! I tried it and ordered the full size product. The only thing I don't like is the smell. But the results are amazing. I've been using this product for a month and my skin tone looks better and the fine lines around my mouth and upper lip have faded somewhat. To counteract the smell, after applying, I use a standard moisturizer that has a nice fragrance.

This makes me WANT to do a skincare routine

This feels so light and smooth. So healthy and clean. Works wonders overnight. Skin looks so bright following day.

Sunday Riley should be a household name by now. You can’t go wrong with any of their products. My skin is noticeably more healthy and I feel wonderful about it.

The best product ever!
SampledPurchased

I hardly ever leave reviews... but this stuff is fantastic! I originally got it in my box as a sample. At first I tried it here and there and didn’t notice a difference. Then I got the retinol in my box another month. I did research on the best way to apply the products and stick with the routine. A week later, I’m blown away! Little facial bumps I’ve had for yearrrrrsssss are smooth, flattened and my pores have shrunk tremendously! My face is glowing as well. Makeup goes on smooth! I just bought the full size of this and the A+ retinol, along with the auto correct to try. Anyone who has left a bad review for this product couldn’t have given it a long enough try. It’s great. Yes, expensive, but worth it if you give it time to do it’s thing!

Actually works!

This is one of the few "anti-aging" products that I've found to make a significant difference. My skin feels so much smoother, looks brighter, plumper - all that. Well worth the money, and I don't say that lightly. It ain't cheap, but - it is very effective. I'm really happy with it.
