Sunday Riley Power Couple Duo Total Transformation Kit ($85) is a new, limited edition gift set that comes with Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment and Luna Sleeping Night Oil. I got it Monday and I’ve been using it for three nights (not in the day though) and I thought I’d share my initials thoughts on the set and maybe give you a mini review of sorts.
The reason I wanted to share my thoughts is because this is a Holiday set! So, by the time I actually test the skincare out long enough to see any results the set will likely be gone from Sephora’s shelves.
Here’s what happened three days after I started using the Sunday Riley Power Couple Duo.
This is actually a great deal if you aren’t wanting to spend $105 to $158 for a bottle of Good Genes. The set includes 0.5 oz of each product and each was actually a generous size. I thought they’d be a lot smaller but I have enough here to get me through at least a month to two months using the Good Genes nightly and the oil is very potent and two to three drops was all I needed which means that’ll last even longer.
Luna Sleeping Night Oil wasn’t my oil of choice from Sunday Riley. I wanted to indulge in Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil. Luna seems fitting for people with sensitive skin types and visible pores versus someone like myself who has drier skin and no visible pores nor blemishes. Since it comes with the set I decided to skip on Juno for now.
Good Genes can be used in the morning and the evening but I decided to add it to my night routine only. It’s a runnier cream that absorbs easily into skin. It leaves my skin very, very slick which makes me happy I decided to use it in the evening. I don’t really use AHA or chemical exfoliaters, I actually prefer physical ones but there are many benefits to using a chemical one but the main one is the fact that I never feel dry or tight after using a chemical formula versus a physical exfoliating scrub that tends to leave me smooth but dry.
My first night using both Good Genes and Luna was disappointing. I thought I’d wake up and my face would glow. It didn’t. My face felt smoother, softer, and even plumper but not brighter or visibly younger. You can’t expect a miracle on your first time out of the gate right? The next night I used the duo again and I woke up the morning with even more smoother, softer, and even plumper skin. My skin had a certain plush softness about it which I was loving! Again, no visible results. But I did notice my makeup looked freaking awesome that day. Everything went on so much smoother and my foundation looked amazingly soft and even. I used it again last night and this morning I’m pretty happy to say that my skin appears a bit brighter and a little less dull. Again, my skin is soft, smooth, and plush and again, my foundation applied beautifully.
Hmmmm! I might be onto something here.
I’m going to continue to use both and let you know how I’m feeling after I complete the set. So far, things are looking promising! Maybe just maybe, Good Genes might make it’s way into my nightly skincare routine permanently.
