Sometimes daughters really do know all.
Annoying, but true.
Falling back behind “mother knows best” doesn’t always ring true and I am happy to learn and stand corrected – especially when it comes to anything beauty.
My girl raves and raves about the Sunday Riley range of skincare. As you know I am very fussy and stick to certain products like glue. She finally got so tired of me saying, “yes, “yes”, … I will… soon” she gifted me her favourites. I have been trying them, I mentioned the cleanser last week, but what I have been holding off on is the treatment called Good Genes.
It is a cross between a serum and a light grade lactic acid to cleanse and brighten the skin. It is all the right natural ingredients and I have to admit feels really good. I have been using it for a while now and I really see the change it brings to my skin. Clearer, brighter and I think, smoother. Of course, skincare is a culmination of a lot of external affairs too – sleep, hydration and exercise – and nothing can work miracles alone.
But this is good, Emily was right.
I started using it every second night after my cleanser and before my night products. It prickled at first, but nothing serious. I’ve gradually introduced it every day and really, really like how my skin feels afterwards. Good Genes is a different kind of product for me, any kind of retinol treatment is too irritating and I don’t like high-grade exfoliation. This is a perfect balance and used in conjunction with hydration – well, she was right – it is an absolute winner.
It also works as an illuminating primer – cleanse, “good genes” and tinted moisturiser. Once you are up and racing with it, try this adaption. I like the finish and lately, it is all I have been wearing.
Plus a little red lipstick. xv
