From Serums to Sunscreens: The Best Obagi Products for Every Skin Type and Concern

If you're on the hunt for some great skincare products but are overwhelmed by the abundance of products to choose from, this article on various Obagi products should help to make things more clear for you. We will introduce you to some of the best Obagi products available, for various skin types and conditions. 

Obagi has been a trusted brand in the skincare industry for a very long time, with a stellar reputation. They have products that can address just about any skin type and concern you might want to address. So, let's take a closer look at some of their best offerings.

Dry Skin

Dry skin will significantly boost long-lasting hydration with Obagi Hydrate Luxe. This is an  intense moisturizer that will condition the skin overnight with natural ingredients, leaving it soft and supple. Combining natural ingredients and innovative technology, this moisturizer will lock in moisture with glycerin and Hydromanil matrix molecules, and provide 8 hours of hydration protection. Plus, it's non-comedogenic, so it won't clog pores or cause breakouts.

Key Ingredients:

  • Shea Butter
  • Mango Butter
  • Glycerin
  • Avocado
  • Hydromanil - complex molecules that retain moisture and keep the skin hydrated by preventing water loss 

Customer Reviews: 5 stars

A great option for cleansing oily skin is the Obagi Nu-Derm Foaming Gel. It cleanses away the excess oil and impurities and is safe to use daily. It’s the first step in the Nu-Derm series and will leave the skin refreshed without stripping away natural oils. It can be used on oily or normal skin while leaving the skin feeling soft.

Acne-Prone Skin

If you have acne-prone skin, the Obagi Clenziderm M.D. Starter Kit should be something to consider using. This 3 step system includes a cleanser, a pore therapy toner, and a therapeutic lotion. The combined steps could be a game-changer! But, please note that this system can be a bit drying at first, so it's best to start slowly and build up to daily use.

Key Ingredients:

  • Salicylic Acid -  helps to reduce surface sebum levels and unclog pores
  • Benzoyl Peroxide - penetrates to reach bacteria in the pores where acne starts

Customer Reviews: 5 stars

Comment: “I have struggled with facial acne since I was a teenager (I’m now 30 and was still struggling). I’ve tried every acne product out there, I’ve tried every home remedy and NOTHING worked. My face has NEVER been more clear after using this!”

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

To either prevent or combat fine lines and wrinkles, the Obagi Professional-C Serum is a wonderful option. This serum contains 20% L-ascorbic acid, which is a form of vitamin C that has been shown to improve the appearance of aging skin. It also can help to brighten the skin and protect it from damaging environmental stressors. It’s a lightweight formula that absorbs quickly, so it's easy to apply under a moisturizer and sunscreen.

Key Ingredient:

L-ascorbic acid 20% - this antioxidant is the purest form of vitamin C and protects the skin against free radicals and other environmental damage. It promotes the production of collagen and brightens skin.

Dark Spots

Sun exposure and aging can both generate hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone. Obagi Nu-Derm Clear FX is a moisturizer and gentle exfoliant, that reveals a brighter and more even skin tone. As a dark spot corrector it will target unwanted hyperpigmentation to leave your skin tone looking smooth and blemish-free. It is a potent, but natural formula, which uses pure ingredients, full of antioxidants and skin-brightening properties. It is gentle for all skin types.
