Skin Care Love: Obagi Nu Derm.

Obagi Nu Derm Kit

I have always been curious about Obagi products ever since my best friend I introduced them to me years ago. She used to go to Belo Medical Group for her skincare woes, and that’s how she discovered Obagi. Amidst researching about the brand, I’ve stumbled upon lots of raves—from common people to celebrities. So, I surmised that this product seems to work, perhaps because it claims to work on the cellular level. However, the steep price tag forced my desire (as well as my wallet) to take a backseat.

I have been frustrated with my skin since time immemorial, mainly because of zits, zits and more zits—not to mention, the dullness and the visible pores. I have taken and applied various medications courtesy of my dermatologist, and I am so glad that my skin is in almost tip-top shape. Well, I still get a nasty dot here and there, but it’s not something as horrible as before I visited a skin doctor.

Come Obagi’s 11th Anniversary in the Philippines, I attended the event sans hesitation. It didn’t fail me, of course! I have learned so much more about the product, particularly on the technical side of how it actually works. What’s lovelier is that I get to try Obagi Nu Derm products, which I still religiously use alongside with my Shiseido Pureness skincare kit.

So, here’s some of Obagi Nu Derm products that I’ve tried:

Obagi Nu Derm Kit + Gift Card

This gift must be super special!

(L-R) Obagi Exfoderm, Obagi Gentle Cleanser, Obagi Toner and Obagi Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35

Obag Gift Card

Thus, this perfect gift comes with a Php 5,000 gift card. I used it to buy Obagi Foaming Gel for oily skin. I also used it to try the Obagi Nu Derm facial, which I enjoyed a lot!

About the product

Obagi Gentle Cleanser is a soap-free cleanser that gently removes impurities, oil and make-up, leaving skin clean and fresh.

Obagi Toner lowers the skin’s PH level for increased penetration of other products that are part of the skincare system.

Obagi Exfoderm removes the old, dead skin cells whilst promoting new skin cells for a lighter, brighter and firmer complexion.

Obagi Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35 simply works as a sunblock. It’s needed especially when using strong topical products (i.e. exfoderm, strong doses of AHA or tretinoin, etc) which makes the skin more vulnerable to sun damage.

Here’s a video of women of have tried Obagi products (Nu Derm and C Rx):


I have been using the product for many months now, and all I can say is ” I LOVE THEM”! 😀 I also tried the Nu Derm facial, and I especially enjoyed the massaging and the galvanic part. Obagi Exfoderm is my favorite among the set. I believe this is responsible in making my skin look more rejuvenated as well as making my gigantic pores shrink. The sunblock isn’t so bad at all, as it doesn’t leave a sticky, greasy feel after application.

Whenever I get a dark spot, the fading rate is much faster when using the system. I can notice a huge difference after two weeks–as if I didn’t have a zit mark at all!

I’m thinking of getting Obagi Clear as well as getting the whole Clenziderm set. The latter is for acne-prone skin, and is much cheaper than Nu Derm. Ha-ha, time to save up for the sake of having a perfect skin! 😛

If you’re interested simply visit the House of Obagi branches in Alabang Town Center, Trinoma Mall, Greenbelt 5, SM City Pampanga or SM North Edsa. You can also visit their website at, or follow them in Twitter @houseofobagi.

Thanks to Sophie of Beautynomics for inviting me to the event. It was wonderful seeing a lot of beauty bloggers then. 🙂
