then my HS friend, who's now a dermatologist, suggested me to use OBAGI. I've been hearing this brand for quite a while but because of the price, i just can't convince myself to try it. I was afraid that it was all about great advertising (since a popular dermatologist and a lot of artistas are swearing by it) and that it'll just be like any other products i've tried.
my friend suggested me to just get two of its products, CLEAR and BLENDER (which you need to mix with Tretinoin) instead of getting the whole set which is consist of 7 items. And to further convince me, she even offered me to get them in gives. LOL...what a good friend! :)
(geesh...what am i doing? am i really letting the whole world see these photos? terrible no?)
i've been using Obagi for almost half a year now and i rarely get pimples na, or hindi na talga. the scars are less visible and those bumps on my face really disappeared. Before when i wash my face, i can really feel those bumps and roughness on my skin...but now, NA-DAH!
Now, see my post-obagi photo taken 2 nights ago (without makeup ito ha) Sorry i wasn't able to take more pictures.
i know my face is still reddish...pero i'm like that na talga. But I am so happy that i can now go out without makeup, i still have a few scars left but not as worse as before. I can also say that with Obagi, you'd really look radiant and fresh (naks!) Had i known that this will be the only answer to my skin problems, i should've gotten this noon pa.
The set contains the following: Facial Foaming cleanser, Toner, Clear, Blender, Exfoderm (Forte), Sunfader and Sunblock. You must buy the tretinoin separately, you can get one from Obagi or from other brands. I'm using that of Stieva-A's.
For the AM regimen:
- Foaming Cleanser, Toner, Clear, Sunfader or Sunblock (or you can use both)
For the PM regimen:
- Foaming Cleanser, Toner, Clear, Blender + Tret
I personally love the Exfoderm, because this is a smoothing lotion which really helped me get rid of those bumps. :)
OBAGI = HG skincare!
