PURIFIED LACTIC ACID: Lactic Acid, one of the most moisturizing Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), exfoliates the skin’s surface layers, exposing a clearer, fresher, smoother, and younger-looking complexion. It helps in the removal of dead skin cells and excess sebum, which can cause skin bumps, dullness, skin congestion, blackheads, and, in the long run, acne. Lactic acids are also great in addressing discolorations and black patches.
LICORICE: Due to its naturally brightening characteristics, licorice helps in the improvement of skin brightness.
LEMONGRASS: An astringent and skin-refreshing herb that promotes a toned complexion.
ARNICA: Soothes the skin and alleviates skin pain.
PRICKLY PEAR EXTRACT: A rare desert cactus extract that calms skin quickly.
ALOE: Soothes and moisturizes without leaving a greasy feeling behind.

Feel & Scent
Good Genes comes out as a white creamy serum, however once applied, it swiftly melts into the skin. It’s light but nourishing, leaving the skin smooth, plump, and dewy without leaving a greasy residue. Despite the fact that I opted to use it as a bedtime treatment, its quick texture-improving properties make it an excellent makeup base.
Sunday Riley does not use artificial fragrances in its products, but the natural botanicals in Good Genes’ recipe give it a pleasant lemony flowery scent.
