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:

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! (more…)

Something New: Murad Acne Complex Kit

Murad Acne Complex Kit

Here’s an interesting skincare entry to start our tropical summer right!

The surging temperature has been bothering me recently, aggravated by the killer El Niño phenomenon. Now, I’m missing the cool, refreshing months brought by the holiday season, as I’m painstakingly bracing the crazy heat both indoors and outdoors—not to mention, I’m amid doing yoga which requires me to stay in a heated room for about a couple of hours!

The sudden temperature change is taking quite a toll on my skin. I’ve been experiencing breakouts especially on my chest and back since the heat starts rolling in. Now, even my face is kind of breaking out, which is something that I really, really don’t want to happen ever again!

This provokes me to grab a tried-and-tested acne regimen to answer my zit woes. Murad Acne Complex Kit has been proven by some friends of mine that it really works. Well, it could have worked on those who mainly have mild to moderate acne. So, I did not hesitate to grab a starter kit in pronto and give it a try, hoping that this will be perfect for my current skin condition. Moreover, it claims to clear skin in just 4 weeks—guaranteed!

Murad Acne Complex Kit is a three-step regimen (Cleanse-Treat-Hydrate) that must be regularly used twice a day. The set includes:

Murad Acne Complex Kit

Murad Acne Complex Kit – (L-R) Murad Clarifying Cleanser, Murad Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel, Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion and Murad Acne Spot Treatment


Murad Clarifying Cleanser is an antibacterial gel cleanser that promises to kill 99.9% of surface bacteria without causing skin irritation.


Murad Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel is a gel-like serum that helps heal existing blemishes whilst preventing new ones from forming. It penetrates deep down into the pores, and eliminates skin cell-buildup.


Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion is an oil-free moisturizer that keeps your skin well hydrated, as well as calms skin’s redness and irritation sans clogging your pores.

Plus, I also got Murad Acne Spot Treatment that stops a zit from brewing like crazy, while reducing redness and irritation. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the Clarifying Mask, though you may get one should you order directly from their website.

I’ve been religiously using the complete set for three days in a row. So far, I haven’t noticed any adverse reactions, such as purging, caused by these products. I’m happy, on the other hand, as my skin momentarily stops breaking out even more! I still got around 27 days left, so let’s see how it is going to perform after a month!

Getting that Timeless, Youthful Look.

People today are somewhat fretting over aging. Nobody wants to look old, nor these nasty wrinkles start to appear. Getting a clear, youthful skin, of course, start from the inside out.

The Inside

Regular intake of fruits and vegetables really help in slowing down the aging process. Many claim that tomatoes help a lot in making your skin glow and look youthful.  Thanks to its lycopene, a pigment normally found in red fruits, that has both antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. Antioxidants prevent aging-causing components from further damaging our skin. It also helps battling out other bodily toxins that can cause cancer and other grave diseases.

Avoid smoking. Smoking produces harmful toxins that hastens our aging process.

Most importantly, always take time to smile. 🙂 Frowning gives our skin more stress to it, which can cause premature wrinkles in return. Plus, having a sunny disposition in life makes as feel better and younger!

The Outside

Sadly, pollutants in our environment as well as the harmful ultraviolet rays take a toll in our skin. They make our skin look tired and old. That’s why, it is highly recommended to religiously practice a skin care mantra. Protect your skin by means of a daily skin regimen with anti-aging properties that suits your skin type perfectly. This serves as our armament to keep those harmful skin pollutants at bay. It is basically composed of the following: cleanser, toner and moisturizer. 😉
