Ordered another bottle!

I'm not even halfway through the first bottle of Good Genes but I used my points to stock up--it really is worth the hype. I've never used a chemical exfoliant this gentle and effective. I initially bought it to help with hormonal acne. I figured it would take a few days or weeks to see a change but no joke, within minutes of putting this on my face my (tbh, very shallow, probably only noticeable to me) marionette lines filled in. You can watch your face change in the mirror, it's bizarre. That was a novelty for a few days, then I forgot about it and was bummed that it wasn't doing anything for my acne; if anything I had more whiteheads. Cue weekly physical exfoliation via mask: problen solved! I hadn't realized it due to how gentle the serum is, but it sloughs off a ton of dead skin. I'd just been layering moisturizer over the serum, rinsing with water in the morning, serum, moisturize, ceramic slip cleanser at night, pat dry, repeat. Basically impacting dead skin into pores. Once I started physically exfoliating more often, Good Genes became a miracle product. Love love love it. If youre debating pulling the trigger: it's less than the cost of a spa facial, the results last much longer and you can customize the way you use it to find what works best for your skin. (Seriously. If you're over 30 and have acne/discoloration but hate benzoyl peroxide and salicyclic acid, try this)
