For me, Sunday Riley has been a game changer. This summer I discovered her Good Genes lactic acid treatment serum and for me, it was an overnight change in my skin.
I quickly jumped on the bandwagon and of course called Erin immediately to tell her all about it... Of course being the beauty product guru she is, she was well aware of Sunday Riley and told me to try the Luna Oil that she had been using.
In an effort to make my skin a quarter as dewey and lovely as Erin's I ran out to buy it, and again swear I saw an over night change in my skin.
As I investigated more into Sunday Riley products, I have found many people who, like myself, swear they see instant results.. Smother, plumper, more even toned luminous skin within the first week.
But I have found other reviews that feel that these products, particularly the Luna Oil & The Good Genes, are too much for their sensitive skin.
It's a draw, My skin is reacting wonderfully to the pharmaceutical grade lactic acid in the Good Genes & the hydroxypinacolone retinoate in the Luna oil.
Maybe because the sales girl I got the Good Genes from originally warned me to start slowly and build up my use of the product, I never got any irritation or adverse reactions.
Sephora will usually have samples, so be sure to try the products before buying them... They are not cheap, but they cost a whole lot less than laser treatments and in my battle to keep my skin as healthy and fresh as possible, Sunday Riley seems like my best over the counter ally and we are certainly not alone.
Remember, you don't have to buy all these products at once, pick and choose what you need now and then work from that starting place.
Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment is formulated with high potency, purified grade lactic acid that immediately exfoliates dull, pore-clogging dead skin cells, revealing smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin. Fine lines appear visually plumped while the skin looks more radiant. With continued use, the appearance of stubborn hyperpigmentation and the visible signs of aging are reduced for a healthier-looking complexion. Perfect for all skin types and all ages, this treatment is enhanced with licorice for brightening, Good Genes clarifies, smooths, and retexturizes for instant radiance.
Luna works throughout the night to deliver more visibly youthful, luminous, even-toned skin in the morning. Trans-retinoic acid ester (retinol) complex reduces the appearance of pores and wrinkles, while visibly improving the signs of premature aging, including fine lines, uneven texture, age spots, dryness, and dullness. Balanced with blue tansy and German chamomile essential oils—both rich in soothing, blue azulene—the look of redness and sensitivity are visibly balanced for a calm, even-toned complexion. Luna is clinically proven to improve the appearance of fine lines, radiance, and skin smoothness in as little as four weeks, while advanced retinol ester mixed with potent botanicals makes this product the ultimate transformational, soothing, sleeping night oil.
Next up on my shopping list-
A botanically active blend of cold-pressed, powerhouse, superfood seed oils. Essential oil free, for those senstive to the activity of essential oils. Nourishes the skin with critical antioxidants, vitamins, essential amino acids, omegas 3/6/9, UV shields and natural anti-inflammatory agents for a luminous, radiant complexion. Vitamins A and C help brighten skin and increase collagen, while antioxidants protect against free radical damage. Sinks in deeply, leaving skin hydrated, protected and velvety soft for an obsession-worth glow.
C.E.O. C + E Protect and Repair Moisturizer infuses five percent advanced, oxygen-stable tetrahexydecyl ascorbate (THD ascorbate) into the skin—the gold standard form of vitamin C. THD ascorbate is the newer, clinically-proven, oil-soluble derivative of vitamin C, which penetrates better into the skin while being exceptionally stable against oxygenation. With 5 percent THD ascorbate, this moisturizer is powerful at fighting the first visible signs of aging and restoring vital skin radiance, while being uniquely suitable for those with sensitive skin, as THD ascorbate is significantly less irritating than other forms of vitamin C. Once in the skin, it helps boost youthful-looking skin texture and volume, in addition to providing photostable, antioxidant support.
Blended with protective, anti-pollution expopolysaccharides and refining lime pearl extract, this formula visibly repairs the effects of aging, environmental stress, and pollution-induced damage. It is rich yet never greasy, providing hydration and antioxidant protection to the skin for a visibly younger, softer, and healthier-looking complexion.
Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream delivers an intense water drench with two forms of hyaluronic acid and tamarind extract so your skin looks youthfully hydrated and plumped. Papaya enzymes smooth and exfoliate while alpha-arbutin visibly brightens the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots. Tidal increases hydration by up to 68 percent in as little as 15 minutes for up to 24 hours of continuous moisture.
So that's it we are joining the Sunday Riley Cult, and this isn't a paid advertisement.... We WISH we could be paid in Sunday Riley products!
I got Sunday Riley's Good Genes for my 40th birthday and used it that first night not really believing it would do much since I have tried so many products but I woke up the next day a believer and had to share it with the world! I really hope these products work for you!
