RADICAL SKINCARE AGE DEFYING EXFOLIATING PADS

Radical Age Defying Exfoliating Pads

OK! If ya do the math, these come out to $1.25 an exfoliating pad. A lot, I know! But isn’t $1.25 well-spent, better than the endless ineffectual products we clutter our medicine cabinets with?

I received these Age Defying Exfoliating Pads in my SpaceNK gift bag over a year ago, and the addiction continues. This product is a super power. 86% Active Ingredients? How refreshing! Glycolic Acid,  and Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids exfoliate skin for a smooth flawless finish. Cellular turnover? Check! Shrinking pores? Check! And Oat Kernel and Chamomile calm it all for a gorgeous glow with zero dehydration. Skin is buffed, brightened, strengthened, and de-creased. All in one step, thanks to these cotton discs.

Perfect for the lazy and perfect for the meticulous! Thanks SpaceNK for adding one more pricey yet must-have to my list.

Sunday Riley Good Genes

Expensive sinkcare can be so hard to justify, but Sunday Riley has put  a miracle worker in a bottle with Good Genes. It is no wonder it.  At heart, it is an exfoliating lactic acid treatment serum, best used at night. And what a powerhouse it is!! Discoloration and scars will fade. Lines will lighten. Texture will soften. Redness will subside. Complexion will brighten. Skin will look restored, refreshed, and luminous. It may sound to good to be true but I can’t find enough praise for the aptly named Good Genes!

A lot of exfoliating serums/creams, like glycolics, retinols, can be overly aggressive, leaving skin looking tired. Not with Good Genes! My skin has never looked stronger and more resilient, while feeling softer and more radiant!

My favorite way to use it as suggested by Sunday Riley is 5 days in row for a boost. Then I put it aside until I need another pick me up. I’ve always loved keeping my skin on its toes by not letting it get desensitized to amazing ingredients. Having this in rotation works like a charm. And thanks to not using it daily, one bottle can last a year!

Another great way to use Good Genes is applied generously as a mask for a quick immediate boost.

Barney’s and Space.NK counters at Bloomingdales provide generous samples. Go grab some and see for yourself. You skin will fall in love! Good Genes is one of those rare products that is worth every penny!
