One of my friends told me about this cleanser and it did not disappoint. I keep one by my sink and one in the shower. Very gentle, not a strong Odor and I love that it doesn't burn my eyes. There is no reason to try any other for me.
I am on week 9 of the nu-derm system. I decided after paint so much I was going to use it religiously and give it a full hippiness try. I started using it after running into a lady with the most amazing skin that had been using it. I have small pores, pretty decent skin just dry and dull. Lacked a luster I was looking for. I am using the full system with a tretinoin of .05 %. I looked pretty rough the first two weeks. Very red and peely mostly in the mouth and nose and chin area. I did experience some breakouts. I'm assuming it was pulling out impurities from deal in the skin. After the first two weeks I started to see the luster start to unfold. My skin looked pretty good for about three weeks and I was getting compliments already and then the second wave hit again just like the first. Breakouts and dry and peely. Not as red the second time around. When I get out of the shower my skin across the top of my nose is so shiny and healthily looking. Like glassy but not oily looking at all. Just tight tight pores and a heathy shine. This gets me very excited because I'm sticking with this. Your not supposed to use moisturizers or liquid make up with this product. It is recommended use mineral makeup so I've been using the Laura Mercier. I still use a liquid occasionally because it makes the dryness look better but I think it just slows down the sloughing of the layers of skin so I try to stick with the mineral most of the time. I wouldn't give up. Every single person ive told I'm using this product that have they used it in the past all say "I love Obagi" or are still using it. I think once you reach what they call maintenance at about 18-24 weeks you are supposed to just use the system about three days a week to keep the results. I don't think you are supposed to stay on it indefinitely every day but I could be wrong.
