The Sunday Riley GOOD GENES glycolic acid treatment, according to the manufacturer, deeply and instantly removes dead skin cells and visibly brightens dark spots created after sun exposure. This treatment with a high concentration of glycolic acid exfoliates the skin, smoothes wrinkles and restores its natural, youthful glow.
Purified glycolic acid without high-efficiency formaldehyde (7%), removes dead skin cells that clog pores. Prickly pear plant extract (Indian fig) soothes the skin, and lemongrass oil refreshes and purifies it. It also contains Potassium Lactate (3%), a form of lactic acid that gently exfoliates and hydrates the skin. High on the list of ingredients is squalane, which soothes the skin and acts as an emollient, ie prevents the loss of moisture from the skin surface.
Glycolic acid is the lowest molecular weight among AHA acids. As a result, it penetrates deep into the skin, exfoliating the surface layers of the skin and giving a fresher, smoother complexion with a rejuvenated look. It helps against the accumulation of dead skin cells and excess sebum, which can lead to the formation of blackheads and acne. It also reduces dark spots.

It can be used by all skin types by applying a few drops on cleansed and dry facial skin and continuing with the care routine. Can be used morning and evening.
For those with extremely sensitive skin as well as those who are just beginning to use acids, I recommend using it 2-3 times a week as a mask. Apply a few drops on a cleansed and dry face and remove after 15 minutes of action. My skin is used to acids and this product did not cause any irritation.
As with all acidic products, apply a high spf throughout the day and introduce it gradually into your routine. After applying the product with AHA acids, use hydrating products with hyaluronic acid. Exfoliated skin better absorbs the ingredients of the care that follows.
I could hardly wait for less sunny days to try this product. It gently cleansed my skin, especially the area around my nose and chin that sometimes gets oily, and it brightened and even out my complexion. The texture is white, creamy, so it spreads lightly and absorbs quickly. Like most acidic products, I used it at least once a week for my neck, décolleté and back. The effect of this treatment is really visible. The skin is smoothed, purified and brightened. Its disadvantage is the high price.
