Skin Care Review: Obagi Nu-Derm Sysem with Retin A

by Lisa, Pittsburgh, PA


C-ffectives worked well under eyes to build collagen

Very drying overall, very expensive for performance of products

I completed two cycles (approx. 3 months) of Obaji and found it very harsh on my skin. I kept asking about moisturizer, but was told that if I was using Obaji correctly, my skin would hydrate itself. My face always looked greasy from the products, a huge drawback during the day when I had to be around other people! I finally gave up because my skin became so sensitive from the products, broke out, and peeled continually. Because of the cost, I continued to use the C-effectives until it was finished, but went to a different vitamin c product after that. The C-effectives is the best product in the line, but there are other vitamin c products available that are less expensive and more effective.

I would not recommend this product line.
