Drew credits Sunday Riley’s Good Genes treatment for seeing a “huge difference” in her skin. The FLOWER Beauty founder shared her beauty find to her 1.5M Instagram followers. "I’ve been using this product 1-2 times a week at night and love the results!", she told fans.

She describes Sunday Riley Good Genes as giving an "amazing polish" to the face. The cult classic lactic acid treatment gently exfoliates dullness while the licorice root leaves skin looking bright.

As Drew said: "I do it maybe once, two times a week and it has this lemony, fresh, sort of functional scent but it’s really great. I see a huge difference in the brightening, tightening and youthening of my skin. It tingles a little bit too, which always makes you think it’s working." 

"It’s cult for a reason," she added.

Dubbed as a “multitasking, targeted treatment”, Good Genes is designed to plump fine lines and wrinkles in three minutes. It can be used as a bi-weekly treatment, applied onto dry skin day or night and left as a leave-on treatment.

If the $122 price tag for the full-size bottle is a little out of your price range, give the travel size a try, at $48 for 0.5oz.
