Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment
WHAT IT IS
Good Genes penetrates the skin’s surface with small glycolic acid molecules that decongest clogged pores. With just one application, this sensitive skin–approved serum will leave you with radiant, clarified skin.
HOW TO USE
Apply to clean skin as an exfoliating serum, morning or night. This product contains alphahydroxy acids (AHAs), which may increase skin’s sensitivity to sunlight. As a result, use sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product.
“I apply this powerhouse glycolic acid serum at night, and come morning, my pores are less clogged and my skin feels baby-smooth.” —Brittany Burhop Fallon, Beauty Director
Glycolic acid—the smallest AHA—is ideal for deeper, surface exfoliation and clearer-looking skin. The addition of potassium lactate and prickly pear extract allows for a boost of hydration and an even-toned complexion.
“The glycolic version of Good Genes has a bit more acid in it than the lactic version, and with the type of acid being more aggressive, I would say that Good Genes Glycolic is a touch more aggressive, too. Most acids have a tingling sensation when you apply them. To counteract any sensitivity, we added skin-soothing ingredients to Good Genes Glycolic that make it feel gentle, while still being potent. When we first started selling it, the gentler tingling sensation caused a misconception that the product wasn’t as strong as Good Genes Lactic, when in reality, it is stronger.” —Sunday Riley, Founder, CEO and Product Formulator
