Skin Care Review: Obagi NuDerm

by Terri, Richmond, IL United States

Adverse Effects

I used it once for a VERY obvious reason, and my skin felt soft

I had an allergic reaction to the sulphites in 3 products in the line

I knew 14 yrs ago I was allergic to wine when my throat, lips, and tongue started to itch and was the sulphites I found out by my Dr. Well, I went and paid $382.00 for 6 Obaji Nu-Derm products so I could have "young" skin again..I'm 46, with sun-damage, and rough, uneven skin that will break out once in a crazy while. I knew that using Obaji is a diciplined regimine, and I was ready! What I wasn't ready for was my throat feeling like it was swelling after using the products for the first time after 40 minutes! I read the label, and guess what, there IS a warning about sulphites! I washed, and washed my face to get it all off, and took benedryl. I called my Dr.s office in the AM, and they didn't even KNOW there were sulphites in it! SO, now I'm on the hunt for a product that will give me good results without sulphites!

PLEASE don't use this if you are allergic to sulphites!
