Sunday Riley Modern Skincare

Hello and Happy Sunday!  I have been incorporating Sunday Riley Modern Skincare to my daytime skincare routine for over one month.  I am happy to report that I am adding Sunday Riley Modern Skincare to my list of HG skincare lines that already includes Acure, Arcona, Aveda, and Melvita.

Sunday Riley Modern Skincare is all about using Green Technology and incorporating their own NV-5 Ageless Complex in the products.  You can read more about Green Technology and NV-5 Ageless Complex on their website here.  I have done a lot of research online before investing in the products.  During my research, I discovered lola's secret beauty blog and Lola's blog contains a wealth of information on Sunday Riley's products.  Lola has been an avid user of the line for many years.  Her posts are well written, insightful, and informative.  Go check out her blog.  

To give you a quick overview of the Sunday Riley products, I have been layering or mixing the first three products in the daytime after cleansing and followed by sunscreen:

 - Juno Transformative Lipid Serum - It is a facial oil and it is the star product in my opinion.  This product gives your skin a luminous glow like no other
- Skin Adrenaline Anti-Aging Concentrate - Light moisturizer for all skin types including oily skin
- Good Genes Treatment - This is a brightening treatment that I use five days in a row as a treatment once a month.  I would layer or mix it with Juno and Skin Adrenaline
- Start Over Active Eye Cream - I have not started to use this product yet.  It was a gift with Sunday Riley purchase at the Barneys New York Beauty Event in February.  I wanted to finish up my Origin Eye Treatments before opening this one
- Charisma Creme Cleanser - I picked up this cleanser last weekend after trying the sample I received in February. It is a good cleanser for normal to dry skin and it will remove eye and face makeup while it softens the skin

All products are available at Barneys New York.

In the evening after cleansing, I am still using and rotating between Acure Radical Age Reversal Treatment and Sponge Ladi Avokanto. I reserve these treatments for bedtime because I find both textures to be too heavy for daytime.

Thanks for reading.  Until next post......


  1. I have never heard of Sunday Riley's skincare. I am going to check it out later.

    How's the scent on these?

    1. The cleanser has a light milky scent, Juno has a natural oil scent, Skin Adrenaline has a fruity scent, and Good Genes has a light scent that I can't really describe. The products are not heavily masked with fragrance, I think they are pleasant. Sunday Riley also has a great makeup line. They were out of the tinted primer that I wanted, so I need to check back. Let me know what you decide to pick up:)

  2. The facial oil sounds really luxurious :) I really like using oils and am a big believer that oils have many antioxidants good for your skin.

  3. great review! I would love to try these products! Currently I use lush solid cleansers.

  4. the packaging and products all look & sound so luxurious. explains why it's only at Barneys hehehe

  5. This is the first time I've seen Sunday Riley skincare reviewed :) I love the names, esp skin adrenaline :P

  6. Juno smells like salad dressing to me but that doesn't mean that I don't love it. It worked nicely on me and I'm contemplating returning for it since it's not much more than the Chanel serum I've been obsessing over. I also love the Good Genes treatment - I did notice some improvement on my skin's clarity. The eye cream makes my eyes burn - I know this is supposed to happen but it's not very relaxing. I will not return for that.

  7. Nice review, Rola! Thank you so much for saying such nice things about my blog and all of my Sunday Riley reviews in this review :-). I am anxious to hear what you think about Start Over Eye Cream! xo Lola

  8. thanks for sharing,im having Marni for H&M dress giveaway come join

  9. I've seen ads for this brand in mags but have yet to see it in person. Curious about that eye cream...

  10. Such a great post, I really like it, these products are so nice!
    Take a look and if you want we can follow each others: Cosa mi metto???

  11. It's always great to discover new skincare lines that work well. This brand is new to me but it sounds great and I'm intrigued by the green technology. I'll have to check it out the next time I visit Barneys.

    Thanks for your kind well wishes Rola! I was a real mess last week but the Chinese herbal meds have finally kicked in and I'm actually feeling somewhat decent now so I'm living it up while it lasts.
