It works…fresh glowy skin after only a few uses. Definitely worth the money. Especially for us over 50. Highly recommend.

I bought this mini size to travel with me. If I could bathe in this, I would! You look younger and more radiant with the first use. Apply morning and night after toner and you will not be disappointed!

This brand has me sold ! I love this treatment serum almost as much as I love my husband . The lactic acid gently exfoliates while leaving your skin smooth and radiant . I swear its worth the price tag $$ . I held out for my coupon and purchased the big bottle and one pump is plenty for full face / neck . I will continue to keep this in my skin care regime , thank you SUNDAY RILEY !

Reading the ingredients, it clearly says that it’s not harsh like other products that would cause skin issues. I don’t know about everyone else, but I don’t want something harsh that means I need something else to repair my skin before moving forward to remove the dark spots. A LITTLE GOES A LONG way which made my bottle last over a month. I have noticed dark spots have faded.

My laugh lines are straight up GONE

I switched to this serum after feeling meh about Kate Somerville's Exfolkate, which I've used for awhile and never felt that it was doing much. I'm really glad I made the switch. This stuff is hardcore. I usually have strong skin (meaning the opposite of sensitive) but I occasionally feel burning when using this product, so I would NOT recommend for those with sensitive skin. However, since I started using for a few weeks, I think my laugh lines have almost completely disappeared. To be fair, I use other skincare products so some of that could be attributed to those (retinol, growth factor serum, etc). But I feel like the disappearance of these lines matched up more with when I started using this product. The price is high which is why I am giving the product 4/5 stars (plus for being maybe too strong for others to use) but if you're not worried about price or strength, then definitely give this a try.

I absolutely love this product i bought the christmas bundle with the sunday riley night oil and they are literally a present in a bottle. Both products go hand in hand i could have a rough looking skin day and i apply this at night and it absolutely makes my skin brighter and more clear overnight! Totally recommend! 10/10

Too expensive for very little, if any, results. I was very disappointed with this and all the sunday riley products. My skin actually looked worse after using them regularly.

I did see improvements with my dark spots and the texture of my skin but I got the smallest size and it lasted about a month and I wasn't even using it daily. The packaging makes it seem like you are getting a lot when in reality you're getting less. It's like a squeezable bag inside the jar. Will only repurchase if it's on sale again.

I did notice a difference with my dark spots, but I got the smallest bottle and it didn't last me more than a month & i wasn't even using it daily. The packaging makes it seem like its a lot but no, when i pulled it out it was a small squeezable package. Not worth what you are paying for this small amount, get it if its on sale!

Boy, this stuff really works! I have some discoloration on both of my cheeks. I used this maybe five times and it has visibly lightened my cheeks! I'm so happy with it. Also, my skin looks smoother and less wrinkled. Love!

Worth it

I spent a lot of time debating trying this product because it is quite expensive, however I have very dry complicated skin. I have texture and fine lines coming through and my skin has changed since having kids. I've noticed more signs of aging and decided to try this instead of a retinol type product because it seem to fit more what I was looking for. I started using it as suggested for sensitive skin, after my first week I began using it as a leave on serum and my skin has never looked better. I paired this with other products that have peptides (matriculated multi peptide on days I'm not using this and a barrier protector type cream on the days I am) and so far I'm noticing a huge difference in the texture and fine lines and plumpness of my skin as well as moisture retention a big part of that has been using this every other day. On days where I wake up and maybe I've been lazy and my skin has started to show it dullness again, I've been using it in the morning, waiting a few minutes before applying any other skin care, and it revives my skin instantly! as a tired mom I think that's a pretty cool trick.

I wish I hated this product

5 out of 5 stars
Kacey - 2 months ago

I am not one to write reviews but I have no choice but to with this one. Let me preface by saying my skin hates EVERYTHING. All SPF, all moisturizer, all face washes, masks, etc., will make me break out in tiny pimples. I have combination skin with pock marks and dark red spots from cysts many years ago that seem like theyll never fade. I got a sample of this product with my birthday code, and it has CHANGED. MY. LIFE. I'm not sure what kind of witchcraft and sorcery they mixed into this serum, but I will never be able to go without it again. Believe me, if there was ANYTHING comparable for even half the price I'd be purchasing that instead, but this is one of a kind. It brightens my skin, leaves it soft and plump, and is FADING MY ACNE SPOTS. I use one full pump for my whole face, and any extra residue drips I kind of press into my deepest pock marks. Complete magic. The issue is that the price tag is painful, borderline unreasonable…however, I tell myself it's still cheaper than dermatologist appointments, multiple trials of products that don't work and end up going to waste, and therapy (kidding). As always, what works for me may not work for you. Definitely get a sample and test it for a few days before committing to the full size. But if it ends up working for you, I can guarantee you will be coming back.

Oh, Good Genes...How I've Missed You!

I can't remember when I received my first bottle of Sunday Riley Good Genes in my Ipsy box, but I remember loving it and then moving on to other products. I recently found that old bottle in my vanity and it had just a smidge left, so I tried it again. I got three nights worth of light use out of it and I knew I had to get another bottle right away. Like a lot of Ipsy subscribers, the fun for me has been in trying new products all the time but at some point, you just have to say "This works, and I'm staying with it." I have had this new bottle for less than a week, and my complexion is already absolutely radiant. Like, no joke - radiant. And I'll be 50 this year, so that is really saying something. My fine lines are reduced, my skin has the smoothest, softest texture, my hyperpigmentation is starting to fade, and it feels like my little luxurious moment of self-care every night. I also recently found a little sample of the Luna Night Sleeping Oil that was still unopened, so I've been using that as well. I've had a full bottle of it in the past, so I'm back on Ulta to purchase Luna again, too. These two products together are truly a fountain of youth, and well worth every penny!
