Day 13 – GLOSSYBOX ADVENT-URES – Sunday Riley Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment

My first Sunday Riley product! I seem to remember that Glossybox had a limited edition Sunday Riley box a few years ago, but it was soon after I had become a subscriber and hadn’t even heard of Sunday Riley back then. If they released a Sunday Riley box now, I would definitely try to get my hands on it! This is a tiny 5ml sample though, Sadly, there won’t be much opportunity to test how good it is.

HOW TO USE

WE RECOMMEND: Apply to clean skin as an exfoliating serum, morning or night. 

STANDARD PRECAUTION: Use only as directed. Avoid contact with the eyes. If irritation persists, discontinue use and consult a Health Care professional. 

SUN ALERT: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. 

KEY INGREDIENTS

GLYCOLIC ACID: Glycolic Acid is the smallest AHA, which means that it penetrates deeper into the skin than other AHAs. Because of this, glycolic acid is ideal for deeper, surface exfoliation, clearer-looking skin, and the appearance of smaller pores. By dissolving and sweeping away dead skin cells and excess oil, the signs of dull skin and congestion are cleared. The look of wrinkles and fine lines are visibly smoothed. Further treatments, serums, and creams are able to sink into the skin better after Good Genes application.

POTASSIUM LACTATE: A member of the lactic acid family, potassium lactate provides smooth, even, and gentle exfoliation while also boosting hydration levels.

First Impressions: I tested it on the back of my hand. The product absorbs well and quickly. It has a very subtle scent, which, weirdly, reminds me of washing up liquid! I am looking forward to seeing if this works on my skin type.
