That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 3.12.18
Question of the Week: What’s the last skincare product you used on your face?
Answer: If it feels like I was just talking about Sunday Riley Good Genes, it’s because I was (just last week, in fact.) I’m new to the Sunday Riley following, but wow, color me impressed!
Good Genes is the “baby bear” of skincare products for me. (You know, juuuuust right!) It exfoliates, improves skin texture, plumps fine lines, brightens and evens skintone. It also makes my pores less visible, my skin feel more firm and more moisturized. And the side effect of more regular exfoliation (I use 4 times a week) is that I am breaking out less.
Basically Good Genes and I need to get a room…
I freakin’ love it.
I hear The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% is similar. Which is great because it’s only $6.79, compared to Good Genes’ $105 ouchy price tag. If I can manage to snag a bottle during the 7 minutes its in-stock anywhere, I’ll let you know if that’s true.
But I think if you love a good peel, and like me are blessed with both acne and wrinkles; you’ll love Good Genes too.
If you want to try it without taking a big financial plunge, Sephora is offering the Sunday Riley Flash Fix Kit for $28. It’s a 0.27 oz bottle of Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment and 1 oz of the Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser.
