Skin Changing Holy Grail!

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!

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!

Part of my daily routine! I am a skin care junkie and this is the best treasure in my chest. I keep this in my purse, reuse through the day. Sooooo worth the money you spend. It completely transformed my skin. She uses the best ingredients at the highest grades, you get what you pay for.

Skeptical at First!!

So I went into this thinking "reviews sound great, but show me results". First two- four weeks I was like I don't really see a difference in the texture or overall correction of my skin tone.
I should mention I have a honey(biracial) colored skin tone, I had some scaring from old pimples and a small amount of sunspots. Also I seemed to have had tiny bumps appearing all over my face. Anyway let me tell you...ALL of it is GONE! I have perfect scar free and bump free skin. It is very rare that I will get a pimple and I am happy to say I don't mind going without makeup because my skin tone is so even. It did take getting through 3/4 of the bottle for me to notice but I agree with all of the ratings saying this is a must have. I wish I had a photo to post. I should mention I have started in the last month or so using this with the paula choice salicylic acid. I feel like it preps the skin for all the amazing products you will nourish your face with.
