What would be an alternative to Obagi ?
The ingredients in Obagi are the same ones available both by prescription and over the counter. In the Obagi system, they are just packaged and applied in a certain order which can be very effective. But………there’s certainly no need to stay on it for life. Please be reassured that you can use the tretinoin just fine without the blender. If you tend to get irritated with tretinoin, wash with a gentle cleanser, put your moiturizer on and wait 10 minutes. Then apply a pea sized amount of the tretinoin. Renova is just tretinoin in a more moisturizing base but it often works better for people prone to irritation. Always use tretinoin at night and you MUST sunscreen every morning! Hope this helps.
