Sunday Riley Good Genes

I got a sample of the Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment by Sunday Riley back in February 2017. It was one of the reward gift options for Sephora members. Folks have been ranting and raving about it for months.

The major selling point of this product is the high potency lactic acid it possesses. It’s supposed to help with a hosts of issues including, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and dull skin just to name a few. I was passed pumped to use this product as I’d been contemplating getting one of the full sizes (I admit, I got caught up in the hype). The one thing to be conscious of is Sunday Riley products possess high grades of different ingredients, usually some kind of chemical. So be sure to check the warning or fine print before purchasing.  Pausing here for a moment. If a product is not safe to use during pregnancy why would I want to use this if not pregnant? That means there is something in this product harsh enough to potentially harm an unborn child after being absorbed into the body through the skin. If it’s harsh enough to warn against using during pregnancy what would absorbing such a product consistently do to my body in general in the long-term? What type of environment would that create if you plan to become pregnant sooner or later? SCARY! These were thoughts and questions that crossed my mind after reading some warnings on other Sunday Riley product.

Getting back to business, I’d been contemplating purchasing the 1 ounce bottle to help with my large pores and dark spots. The 1 ounce bottle is $105 so image my excitement when I saw a FREE sample on Sephora’s rewards list. *Clicks ‘Add to cart’ Thank you! 

It took me 2-3 weeks using the product morning and night to finish my sample and I have to say that I was disappointed. I’d read numerous reviews on how amazing the product was. How much it changed person after person’s skin but not mine. I can’t say I noticed any difference in my skin by the time I finished my sample. For $105, I need to be able to undeniably see a difference in the appearance of my skin.

I tried excusing it as maybe it’s meant for more mature skin (however I don’t think that’s the case). Maybe I didn’t use it long enough? What ever the reason I did not experience the miracle that most people seemed to experience with this product. And for that, I cannot say I would recommend spending $105 (minimum, for the smallest size) on the Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment. Sorry Sunday! I do want to try some other products from the line. An oil in particular. However I am in no rush.

If any reader has tried this and had great results let me know. How long did it take to see results? Did I not use it long enough? Is there a secret I’m missing?
