Odalisque Magazine Opiates GOOD GENES by Sunday Riley

By Elva Ahlbin

I am soon at the bottom of my third bottle of this magic exfoliating serum and once again I am preparing myself for the moment of zero self-respect and 100% extraction mode. I will use whatever I find and fit to scrape out the last magic drops from this 30 ml bottle. Maybe I can use my pinkyfinger or the back of a makeup brush. I don´t care as long as I get it all out and on to my needy greedy face.

The luxury, high-performance skin care products from Sunday Riley and especially the Good Genes Serum was a true game changer for me and my sensitive skin. In a few days I´m turning 42 years old and I have not felt this confident in my skin in many years.
Normally I have oily and blemish prone skin with bigger pores on my cheeks. My lifestyle choices aren't exactly the likes of a health guru and normally my skin will be the first to give me away. But after a couple of months using these products my skin is clear, less oily and the texture of my skin is very smooth. I look… wholesome!

I apply the serum on clean skin at night after toner and before face oil and night cream. Sometimes it stings my skin a little and normally that would worry me but now I'm like Pavlov's dogs and think of it more like a sweet kiss good night. 

Description according to Sunday Riley´s website;
Clean, purified glycolic acid deeply exfoliates and repairs the look of dull, congested, and sun damaged skin for a visibly radiant, healthier-looking complexion.

Containing clean, ultra-pure, formaldehyde-free glycolic acid, to revitalize the appearance of dull, congested, and sun damaged skin, without compromising on what matters to you most: safety, quality, and fast results. Good Genes Glycolic penetrates the surface of the skin with tiny glycolic acid molecules, sinking deeper into the skin than other forms of AHA, to break apart pore-clogging debris and repair the look of sun-damaged, congested, wrinkled, or dull skin. With just one use, instant radiance and skin clarity are visibly boosted. Balanced with fermented prickly pear extract, perfect for sensitive skin, to soothe and calm the complexion, along with skin-purifying lemongrass extract.
