This is transformational on skin! It's taken 10 years off!
I know I bang on about Obagi on here at any opportunity but honestly, it's incredible stuff. It's hard core and makes you look 10 times worse for weeks on end (skin bright red, peeling off and sore) but my god is it worth it. I've just finished a 4 week stint on it and my skin is smooth, clear, pigmentation almost gone and its bright and luminous. I say it over and over - nothing nothing nothing off the shelf will work. You HAVE to go radical to improve your skin to this extent but the results are worth it x 100!! For anyone despairing of their skin, try this.
Ps, I have nothing to do with the product. It's also medical grade and has to be prescribed by a doctor.
I'm with you. I am 50 and have had rubbish skin for 30 years. It's fantastic . It's eye waterngly expensive but when I think he much I have spent over the years on stuff that doesn't work - clarins, Estée lauder, Lancôme, declor etc etc. I won't buy anything else now. It's not worth it.
It's not prescribed by a GP in any scenario I can think of It's just not over the counter stuff i think because oftge high concentrations of retinol. So a skin clinic that does non invasive stuff with Doctors on the staff can prescribe/sell it. A private prescription if you see what I mean
Yeah, it's a regime and u can buy packs but I'd say u defo don't need the cleanser and toner. From memory, when I bought the total kit, it was about £200!! But it's nothing like a normal skin care regime.
It's not really for wrinkles. If you have reasonably good skin in the first place, I wouldn't use it. It's pretty full on and I just wouldn't put myself through it unless you have problems you want to address. It can't believe your wrinkles are that bad at 29 but Botox for forehead.
