Rediscovering Sunday Riley Skincare Products: A Workshop Experience and Product Review

Louida Martin from Product Review Mom at Sunday Riley Workshop in Atlanta

I mentioned a skincare brand called Sunday Riley when I showcased the products I traveled with on a trip a couple of years ago.

However, I was reintroduced to the brand recently when I attended a Sunday Riley workshop.

Sunday Riley Skincare Workshop

I found out about Sunday Riley when I was at Sephora restocking my Paula's Choice products, but what I wanted wasn't in stock, so an associate told me about Sunday Riley and how it is just as good if not better than Paula's Choice.

I purchased both C.E.O. 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum for my dark spots and Auto Correct Brightening + Depuffing Eye Contour Cream for my undereye wrinkles from the associate's recommendation.

Both products worked exceptionally well; I was very impressed!

Now, the reason why I stopped using Sunday Riley was the price; it's expensive!

Fast-forward to now, and I am back to using Sunday Riley's skincare products thanks to being invited to her event here in Atlanta. I learned more about the brand and how to use the products.  

I even got to meet Sunday Riley herself!

My Thoughts about Sunday Riley Skincare Products

I brought home these products to try them out again, and I must say, Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment is a game-changer!

Lately, my skin has been a mess! Flaky, peeling, dry, dark marks, textured, large pores! Ugh!

Sunday Riley Skincare Workshop in Atlanta

During the workshop, the crowd applauded when Sunday Riley discussed Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment. I knew this skincare product would help with my congested skin issues.

Sunday Riley products are known to work quickly, and the Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment did just that overnight!  

My skin was smoother and had a more even complexion. I will add Good Genes to my skincare routine because, with consistent use, I can tell it'll also help fade my dark marks.

The other product that I enjoyed was the C.E.O. Afterglow. The cream is rich and creamy, giving my skin the necessary hydration all day without needing to be reapplied. A little goes a long way, so this jar will last me a while.

You already know I like Auto Correct Eye Cream and C.E.O. Vitamin C Brightening Serum, as I've tried them both a while back. Since I'm enjoying the other products I received, I'll revisit the eye cream and serum.

I'm Happy to Be Using Sunday Riley's Skincare Products Again!

My reintroduction to Sunday Riley's skincare products has been a game-changer for my skin.


Attending the workshop, learning more about the brand and its products, and meeting Sunday Riley herself has been an enlightening experience. 


The Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment has quickly become a staple in my skincare routine, significantly improving the texture and tone of my skin overnight.  

The C.E.O. Afterglow Gel Cream has been a reliable source of long-lasting hydration, and I'm looking forward to revisiting the Auto Correct Eye Cream and C.E.O. Vitamin C Brightening Serum again.


Despite the initial setback due to the price point, the results and the brand's commitment to quality and sustainability have encouraged me to reinvest in these effective skincare products.
