Happy Sunday! What better time to tell you about my love for Texan chemist Sunday Riley?
Moving to a desert climate from a humid climate has definitely taken some getting used to. I already have dry skin and the dry climate doesn’t help.
What is helping? These beauty products!
Seriously life-changing. People compliment my skin so often since switching to these, and it was almost immediately. I already have co-workers switching as well. Sunday Riley is expensive for the average consumer. I know, but her ingredients are POTENT and worth it!
I do not use all of these at the same time.
Short & sweet: first you would wash your face. I double cleanse at night then follow up with KLAIRS Supple Preparation Facial Toner. In the mornings, I lightly cleanse with just the micellar water from my double cleanse post. Then follow up with KLAIRS.
KLAIRS is always my step two. Why? Because it preps the skin to absorb the next step in your skin regimen better. This is called an essence or a toner. This one is technically both because it also balances the pH in your skin (FYI, most cleansers don’t mess up your pH these days, so that part isn’t huge anymore). It is basically making your most important step (that follows) even better. It is a gentle formula for all skin types. It reduces inflammation, hydrates, soothes, and protects the skin! It really does feel great when you put on your skin.
Next, if it’s morning, I use Good Genes by Sunday Riley. It is a lactic acid treatment. The Same potency you would get from a plastic surgeon’s office. Very anti-aging. It will help get rid of your lines. Short-term – plump lines. Long-term – rebuild your collagen. It will resurface and retexturize your skin. It will strengthen what you put on top of it. It will make you look like you have “good genes”. Seriously. Read about it. Amazing… then I moisturize and apply makeup and I’m on my way.
If it’s night time, I use the KLAIRS then the Luna Oil by Sunday Riley. Think of it as a next generation retinol oil. Did you use Accutane as a teen for acne or know someone who did? Made your skin terrible but then OMG so much better in the end. That is basically what this is but WAIT. Let me explain. It will not act like Accutane. It’s a different derivative of retinol that will not make your skin go crazy, you just get beautiful after effects. <Basically how Sunday Riley herself explained this. She is a chemist from Texas, and I love to support a fellow Southern girl.
Then I would follow with my moisturizer. You can shop these here:
If you have tried any of these or will be, let me know! I’m already through one bottle of good genes and ready to buy another. I bought the Power Couple set from Sephora because it was a great deal per ounce. I still have some Luna Oil left and debating on buying the Power Couple again or just buying a huge bottle of Good Genes. The next thing I want to try is the Juno Oil for hydration and other things. I have already told my momma I want it for my birthday next month 😉 haha
