Do you like Obagi products?

I wish there was a simple answer to this one because I’d have to say yes and no. Yes, because I think he’s done a good job of taking easily available active ingredients (some prescription and some not), packaging them well and making them easy to use and understand for the average person. No, because depending on the exact products, it can be too harsh and sometimes aggravate melasma and other problems.   It’s also quite expensive if you use the entire line and equivalent products can be found much less.  Remember some may need a prescription like the tretinoin and hydroquinones over 2%.  And, in my opinion, the line over uses the hydroquinones. Here is a list of my favorite skincare products.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
