Skin Care Review: Obagi Ceffective

by Diane E Brown, Asheville, NC USA


My skin is somewhat firm and smooth. I have very few deeper wrinkles.

Expensive. Many different products to use.

I am 48 and starting to have a decrease in collagen and getting fine lines. I started the obagi program to prevent further damage. It has helped. I still get lots of mixed information about the products. I use the exfoderm forte and am concerned about FDA warnings about alphy hydroxy acids and sun damage. My face stays red and peeling even after 2 years of the program. I started getting acne from over activity of the skin. I slowed down the process and started taking zinc and that helped. I don't like that I cannot mix the program with other products. I started using estogen cream during the day on my face about a month ago. I stil use the obagi at night. I use 0.1% retin A on Mon, Wed, and Fri. The other nights I use the exfoderm Forte. I use the Vitamin C each night but am not sure if it is effecting anything because the estrogen may change the ph which must be kept low for all the products to work. The program has worked fairly well until now. I have started seeing quite a few fine lines start to form and would like to stop them.

Good program if you can take the time.
