Skin Care Review: Obagi Nu-Derm

by M. C., La Crescenta, CA 91214


Skin clarity, dewy youthful glow, reduced fine lines

Initial redness and peeling, requires doctor to dispense, costly, complicated

Obagi Nu Derm system gave me spectacular results. I got a lot of facial pigmentation after pregnancy, and was recommended the treatment by skincare specialist. My skin is so clear and beautiful now, that I get complements all the time, even from people that didn't know my "before" appearance. How many products give that result?! The system requires 6 products used in conjunction, and has to be bought with a doctor's backing, lots of plastic surgeons sell it from their office, although non-prescription items can be purchased on the internet. It causes a lot of redness and peeling for a few weeks until you get used to it. It has to be used twice a day, so it's a little complicated and expensive. After 18 weeks, you can maintain with 1 application per week, so becomes much easier and cost-effective. The results are undeniable! Less fine lines and gorgeous clear skin. It gives a lighter look - I am pale complected, so it works well for me, but sun-worshipper types would probably not like it since it lightens skin, and you have to religiously protect your face with sunscreen.

Initial investment, but so worth it, especially if you have pigmentation or freckles.
