Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.
