Love This!

I used this a few nights a week. Love it! Fades my dark spots wonderfully and keeps my skin smooth. Expensive but always a treat when I get a sample.

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!

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!

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.

Best skincare product I've ever used
Sampled

The title of my review says it all: it truly is the best skincare product I've ever used. I'm 31 with the beginnings of fine lines near my eyes. I have sensitive, somewhat combination skin, often breaking out when my workout routine picks up, if I'm nearing a period, if I'm stressed, if I try a new skincare product....you name it, and my skin will find a way to tell you it isn't happy. Not only does this NOT make me break out, I immediately noticed a difference. Pigmentation issues were immediately reduced within a matter of minutes, as was some light scarring. I used to never leave my apartment without both concealer and foundation, and when I wore the Good Genes product, I only needed spot concealer for under my eyes and some more stubborn areas. I no longer need foundation, it is amazing! I only wear foundation now if I have a big meeting or a weekend night of festivities. Now that my sample is finished, it's time to splurge and buy this product. WORTH. EVER. CENT.

I'm also a huge fan of the Sunday Riley "Tidal Cream" which was a previous sample I got through Birchbox, and I ordered it and love it. Moisturizes and doesn't make me break out. My skin looks awesome all day thanks to Birchbox exposing me to the Sunday Riley brand. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!! <3

Worth every penny!

Y’all- this stuff is the real deal. If you’re looking for a product that gently expholiates, increases brightness, smooths texture, and brightens dark spots- this is a one stop shop. At first, the smell of this product, which is quite chemically, offended me. However, I now associate it with my best skin and LOVE it!
