Good chemical exfoliator
This is a good chemical exfoliator, which should be used instead of physical exfoliators. Can be used daily to target specific areas, or once a week for regular cell turnover. I would give it 5 stars if the smell was more mild and the price point was a little lower.

I just recently purchased and starting using this once daily. So far, I have had no problems with irritation and it feels soothing and hydrating. It is a light serum and I hope it produces good results. Time will tell if the hype lives up to its name.

Great for clogged pores
Great for clog pores
I am 24 and have had acne prone skin since i was a teenager. A year ago i realized that i am having less of breakouts and more of just oily, clogged, but at the same time dehydrated skin. I tried a sample of this serum. This is truly the best chemical exfoliant that hydrates at the same time. The best part about it is that its LEAVE ON, which means i can have it on working, all day. At first it was a bit tingly on my skin but honestly i think it was because my skin had gotten so thin and broken from all the acne products i was using over the years. After a week of usage, i noticed clear, hydrated skin at the same time. Something i ddnt think was possible. I have been using this product religiously and a year and a half later, i think ive gone through 3 bottles.

Using this right now!
I bought small sized bottles of Good Genes and Luna night oil together and used up the Good Genes by itself. I use the Luna more sparingly as I found it to be stronger. The two together are too strong for me. I have moved away from exfoliating scrubs and like this product because it's easier to use and is non-irritating. (I have oily fair skin.)

Smoothens & brightens...
When it comes to Alpha Hydroxy Acids my skin prefers Lactic over Glycolic any day, as it's gentler, and this formula containing Lactic plus Licorice and a host of botanicals is good stuff! I try not to use anything containing AHA's during the daytime as I'm never convinced I've reapplied my SPF sufficiently to protect against the very strong southern Florida sun. For that reason I use it on a night time only.
The texture of Good Genes is light and would suit most skin types I'd imagine, other than possibly sensitive. Having an oilier skin type myself, I find I usually don't need to use a moisturizer once I've applied this as it hydrates sufficiently on its own. Results-wise: I found my skin tone generally brighter within a week of starting use and also it feels much smoother - definitely down to the Lactic Acid. It does contain silicones, however they are thankfully much further down the ingredients list then most silicone-containing products, therefore not a huge issue for me. The fragrance of this serum reminds me of a citrus sherbet meets Lemongrass, it's strangely appealing and yet somewhat not at the same time! Speaking of oils I came across concerns in other reviews about the 'essential oils' in the formulation so I did a spot of detective work... of the 2 oils in here, Meadowfoam Seed Oil is a non-photo toxic carrier oil and Lemongrass oil is an essential oil, although not a photo toxic one either, and therefore no reason for concern. I have tried the 'Gycolic' version of 'Good Genes' too, which I purchased in the UK but found it to be too strong, the Lactic acid formulation suits me much better.
