In a recent survey of more than 500 NewBeauty readers,* we delved into the skin-care products that have become staples in their routines. Among the top contenders is Sunday Riley Good Genes, a lactic acid–powered product that has garnered rave reviews for its transformative effects. It’s even won a NewBeauty Award for the Best Lactic Acid Serum. Here’s what our readers had to say.

For continuous use, a 38-year-old user notes noticeable results, including the disappearance of fine lines, smoother and firmer skin, and a glowing, fresh complexion.

One 43-year-old fan calls it “liquid gold,” praising its lightweight, silky texture that absorbs quickly. They share that results are almost instant, bringing a beautiful glow to the skin, reducing pore size, and enhancing the effectiveness of other products in their routine. “I highly recommend this product,” they add.

A 28-year-old user appreciates the convenience of the bottle and pump, making it easy to use even when in a hurry. They report brighter skin and quicker fading of acne scars, stating, “It’s pricey, but I will always buy it when I run out.”

A 40-year-old reader emphasizes the serum’s versatility, describing it as “a great thing to have in your skin-care wardrobe.” They highlight its mild exfoliation and excellent results, noting that after using it, “lines are plumped and skin is soft.”

A 34-year-old user appreciates its moisturizing properties, describing it as a gentle chemical exfoliant that leaves their face bright and moisturized. They note that it’s not harsh on their extremely sensitive skin and works well with other products in their routine.

Sensitive-skin users also sing its praises. A 37-year-old with reactive rosacea was initially hesitant but found that Good Genes exceeded expectations. They recommend patch testing first but have found it to be a gentle yet effective exfoliator that works wonders on sensitive skin. “For me, it’s been a game-changer. Finally, an exfoliator that not only works but is gentle on my sensitive skin. Highly recommended!”
