Although this product has earned a cult status, I was very apprehensive as its actually had a mixed bag of reviews.
Its been a while since I’ve done a beauty review and boy have I got a good one for you today! I was quite late to the Sunday Riley party and Good Genes is the first of their products I have tried. Although this product has earned a cult status, I was very apprehensive as its actually had a mixed bag of reviews. There are a few who say it’s much too harsh, causes breakouts and irritates the skin. As someone who suffers from sensitive, breakout prone skin, I was nervous as to which side of the fence I would fall.
Rather than drag out my conclusion, I’m just going to say it straight up – this has been spectacular for my skin. I have seen outstanding results and noticeable differences. Without a shadow of a doubt I have seen the most results from this product over anything else I have ever tried. The biggest change is how much smoother my skin is now. One of my biggest bug bears is I have quite bumpy skin, so anything to clear that up is a godsend. Also, I’ve seen a reduction in scarring and a more even skin tone. This is a miracle worker and I will be using it for the foreseeable future.
If you are wondering where it fits into your beauty regime I generally apply it to post cleansed skin but before my Clinique pore refiner, eye cream and moisturiser.
I do have two criticisms. The first is the ridiculous price tag, it’s £85 (although a little less if you live in the US). The other is if you’re using it twice a day as recommended then it doesn’t last very long. I admittedly had a smaller bottle (15ml rather than the standard size 30ml) because I bought it as part of a gift set, but for it only to last less than a month was disappointing. Having said that I’m a big believer in investing in your skin, so I will keep shelling out for it.
If you’re looking for an incredible product which works nothing short of miracles then I strongly suggest treating yourself to Good Genes from Sunday Riley.
