Hi, I've just been for a consultation regarding my skincare options. I'm contemplating a little bit of Botox but also possibly the Obagi skin care regime.
However it's not cheap and as such I would love to hear from anyone who has used it and how they have got on.

I'm using it and really like it. I think my skin is looking the best it has ever done. I was very apprehensive due to the cost but I'm very frugal with it and it's lasting ages. Also I cut the pads in half so they last twice as long. I haven't done any of the peels though and I know the consultants consider them necessary, but at £250 each and needing a course of 3, they are out of my budget!

Rastel, are you on the prescription only course? Or a separate set?
I'm weighing up the benefits.
The set recommended to me was £550...

I started with a box called GRS, getting ready to start. This had a cleanser, scrub and te-pads in it. I then had to add daily power defence and oclipse sunscreen. After a month on that I started with Retamax twice a week for 2 weeks and now alternate days and glycogent. I feel like I have so many products but they are giving results. I've had a couple of skin reviews where they take photos and then flog more products so I've also got a night cream and lip cream.

Mootime you weren't at Jonquille Chantrey were you? When I went for a filler consultation, she never shut up about Obagi, despite me saying 20 times, I'm not here for skincare regime change as I have highly sensitive skin. Gobsmacked at the level of lushness!

Hi, no I was somewhere else. The person I saw wasn't so pushy thank fully. Infact it was probably me that sent the whole thing in that direction as I basically was chickening out of Botox. What I think I'm going to do is have a little Botox and a peel and see how that goes.
