Doesn't work anymore?
I was completely new to chemical exfoliants before purchasing this product. I bought this in the set that also has the Luna oil so I felt a little more justified when it came to spending $85 or however much it was. When I first used Good Genes, I used at night I thought my face was going to burn off. It scared me to death, it hurt and made my skin red! But let me …

I use this when my face feels dull. Not for everyday. I've used other lactic acids that make my nose red. This works well for my skin. But, I'm sure there's a dupe that's less expensive. I stick with it because my skin reacts as it should.

Love this stuff! It has made my skin smoother, softer, and has made me glow! I've been using it for around a month now and I only bought it after trying samples of a bunch of AHAs. This is by far the best.

I bought Good Genes based on some online reviews and admittedly because I fell for the marketing hype of the name "good genes". I have used glycolic & lactic acids before with good results. This product, however, is a nightmare! It caused me to have small irritated bumps over many parts of my face (looked like dermatitis) and an acne breakout. It took MONTHS to calm my skin …Read more

I have an intense love hate with this treatment. Love the results hate the price.. definitely has me by the balls(if I had a set)

I instantly see results with this. My complexion is clear and brighter. My skin feels smooth, soft and exfoliated. It's not for someone who has sensitive skin, imo, I definitely feel the tingling, prickliness almost burn when I apply this. I've …

Is it weird to say I absolutely enjoy the process of using this, even if i absolutely loathe the scent? Good Gene smells like sour rotten milk and the scent kind of lingers on your face. What can we say, it after all contains lactic acid and is very effective at exfoliating my skin without ever drying it out or burning it, so i guess i am happy to endure the horrible smell. It does sting a little …Read more

This stuff made my skin *feel* smooth, which was a huge pro, but didn't appear to do much else like help with redness. The lemongrass scent is really strong and takes a while to fade. This product doesn't tingle so much as it temporarily stings. It leaves a somewhat prickly feeling on the face after application, and I'm not really a fan of that. If you're looking to even out …Read more

My long-time esthetician and MUA whispered to me in the middle of a facial "have you heard of Sunday Riley products?". While she was applying other products from our spa to my face, she was telling me about Sunday Riley. I went home and bought Good Genes, Luna Oil, Ceramic Cleanser and Tidal Moisturizer. I love the feel of products and my aging skin goods terrific after use. The best …Read more

I bought a very small sample size on ebay (for $30!) to see what all the fuss is about. It was pretty great - no irritation to my sensitive, middle-aged but still acne-prone skin, and definite brightening and smoothing. However: the price! I just can't do it. If I had more disposable income I'd splurge but there's no way for me to justify it. It's such a hot commodity you …Read more
