Obagi Nu-Derm with Retin-A
This is my second time using the Obagi Nuderm system in 6 years. I first tried it in 1998 and it did wonders. I had sun damaged skin and my skin was dull from this and smoking for a few years. I also had occasional out breaks from acne and scarrin..... full text >>

Obagi Blender
I use the entire Obagi system (Nuderm) and love it. I am 43 yrs old and have used it now for 1 yr. At first, the products caused dryness (at times excessive) which scared me because I have very dry skin... full text >>

Obagi Blender
Blender, along with the whole Obagi skincare line, works really well for me and a friend of mine. Someone told us both yesterday that we had skin like porcelain dolls- which no one ever would have said that a couple years ago... full text >>

Obagi Blue Peel
Four months ago I had what is was called a Blue Peel. This was performed by my cosmetic surgeon along with other procedures. I came out of the procedure looking like "Tidy Bowl" face. That is the Bright Bright Blue toilet bowl cleaner - kinda like a Smurf... full text >>

obagi blue peel
The obagi blue peel offered excellent results,I experienced more downtime then expected. I would definately have this procedure again, I experienced noticable results, more even toned skin , lessening of fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture was refined, although post reddness remained longer then expected... full text >>

Obagi C Rx
This was recommended to me vs. You need to blend Tretinon with the Obagi C products and I had burning, sore skin for a week or so and then loads of peeling / red skin for weeks. Peeling was supposed to be a good sign, but it occured more around my nose and mouth (not my eyes and forehead where all my bad wrinkles were)... full text >>

Obagi-C RX System Sun Guard SPF 30
This Obagi sunscreen is a 30 strength and promises a supply of skin loving Vitamin C mixed in with the sunscreen ingredients to provide additional antioxidant anti-aging benefits to the skin. Does it really work? How do you know. My skin appears to slightly pinken and tingle for a few minutes after application and I am confident that the sunscreen portion is working... full text >>

Obagi Ceffective
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 concerne..... full text >>

Obagi Ceffective Vitamin C
I spent alot of time in the sun when I was a young girl and felt that I had to have a tan every summer. I must admit I looked better with a little 'rose' in my cheek, but many years later I developed a lot of 'sun spots' on both my face and on the backs of my hands... full text >>

Obagi Clear
I've been using the Obagi Nu-Derm product line and on the whole I am pleased with the results. I am, however, a little disapointed that it had little or no effect on my fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes. I thought the products would have more of an effect than they actually do... full text >>

Obagi Clear
I used this product twice a day for about 6 months. It has hydroquinone in it which is said to be a lightening agent. After about six to eight weeks I could see that the brown spots were lightening. Now I also used Obagi Blender at the same time, twice a day... full text >>

Obagi Clear
I love this product. It cleared up my skin right away after I had my daughter. The brown spots were much lighter within days. The Hydroquinone in this product is 4%. I believe that is the highest you can buy. It is very effective, very fast. How..... full text >>

After several months of using Obagi Clear, I did not notice any lightening of my age spots which are located near my eyes/cheek area - In fact, I experienced some darkening of age spots in the eye area, despite the use of Obagi Suncreen 30 in conjun..... full text >>

Obagi Clear
I am 53 y/o and have moderately fair skin and freckle if I don't use sunscreen. This is one of the few products where I have definitely seen results and fairly quickly. I use it 2x daily and it truly eliminated freckles and evened out my skintone. ..... full text >>

Obagi Elastiderm Decolletage System
The system consists of a lightening cream and an anti-wrinkle cream. I used this two cream system until it ran out and saw no positive results. I do not have much freckling so it is possible that it would work for someone who did... full text >>

Obagi Elastiderm eye gel
The only drawback is cost, but you need to use so little that the product lasts a long time. I saw the other review of this product and had to review it myself to show there's another side. While I understand no single product works well for everyone, I and several of my friends are using this and all of us love it... full text >>

Obagi exfoderm
A good product but it is harsh to the skin. Good for people whose skin isn't too sensitive. It has a creamy texture and is good combined with other obagi products. I use Renin A, though, and using both is not necessary. It is pretty expensive for..... full text >>

obagi exfoderm
I think the Obagi line is fantastic, although its a little overpriced. But it defnitely top drawer. Exfoderm is the most difficult to tolerate. It is meant to work in conjuction with other Obaji Products (e.g., Clear, Sunfader, etc.) It over-ex..... full text >>

Obagi Foaming Facial Cleanser
Obagi Foaming Facial Cleanser is the best face wash I've used. Because I was used to harsher face washes it took some time for me to adjust to the fact that my facial oils weren't entirely stripped away. Initially I thought maybe the product wasn't strong enough because my face still felt a little oily... full text >>

Obagi Healthy Skin Protection SPF35
It has colorless zinc oxide, and as mentioned elsewhere, you don't need to gob it on, so it doesn't give a white cast. I have to say it worked so well last summer that I didn't get my usual dark patches (melasma?) I have fair skin and come from two generations of skin cancer, yet I love the outdoors, so this is great for me to have something I actually use on my face... full text >>

Obagi Healthy Skin Sunscreen SPF 35
I really like this sunscreen. I had never used an "expensive" sunscreen before assuming that as long as the necessary active ingredients were present that was all that mattered. I must say now that I have used this sunscreen I will never go back to the cheaper ones for my face... full text >>

I have a brown skin tone and initially wanted a product to even out my skin and get rid of my freckles/sunspots, not to lighen my skin. I was initially recommended the Obagi from a medical spa.
