Technically a serum, this anti-aging treatment is formulated with five percent lactic acid, licorice, lemongrass and aloe to help slough off dead skin cells, brighten the complexion and reduce the appearance of fine lines, all in one go. The ingredients may also help to boost collagen production.
Plus, it's gentle enough for most skin types, which is a big reason why countless people, including millions of TikTokers and four PureWow editors, swear by it. Needless to say, we're all elated that it's currently on sale for Black Friday.
Some of us use it in the morning to blur imperfections, while others slather it on before bed to help regenerate skin cells overnight. Any time one of us gets a sample of the wrinkle-reducing elixir, our entire team chats about how much we love the product (OK, and how much it smells like Pez—remember the candy?). Still need more convincing? Read our editors' glowing reviews below.
"I always end up coming back to my Sunday Riley Good Genes because it is wild how quickly it works. Having a freshly exfoliated, smooth face works wonders for applying other skincare products and your makeup. It's also helped improve my skin discoloration from acne scarring and melasma, too." —Olivia Dubyak, Commerce Editor
"To convince you of Good Genes’ greatness, I could tell you about how it makes my skin look glowier and plumper in a matter of minutes. Or I could tell you about how, over time, it’s evened out my skin tone and made it feel softer than ever. But most importantly, it smells like Pez, and that should be reason enough to try it." —Sarah Stiefvater, Wellness Director
"I've used Good Genes for years and found it to be one of the most hydrating and brightening products!" —Katherine Gillen, Senior Food Editor
"I'm a new convert to Good Genes after hearing rave reviews from my coworkers. I've only been using it for a few weeks now, but I feel like my skin has definitely changed for the better—it's smoother and more even-toned. The formula isn't sticky or drying at all, and it smells like candy." —Rachel Gulmi, Operations Director, Branded Content
We are suckers for any beauty sale, but especially when it includes our holy grail treatment. We're definitely going to be snagging the largest 1.7-ounce size (was $122, now $92). But if you're trying it out for the first time, there's also a 1-ounce bottle (was $85, now $64) or a 0.5-ounce bottle (was $43, now $32) to take on your next vacay. So, what are you waiting for?
