Obagi skin care products were founded by Dr. Zein Obagi a skin health expert.
This skin care product line was originally designed for physicians to treat patients with skin problems such as acne.
Obagi products have been around for over 20 years. These days, you can buy this type of skin care product from your doctor, medical spas, plastic surgeons, skin care specialists and dermatologists.
Much of the skin care range is prescription only and is used on all skin types.
You can’t buy Obagi skin care products online if wanting to treat a particular skin problem. When you go to the website, you will be able to find the nearest seller or physician to you.
However, if you want to buy the basic skin care line, you can find these products online.
It is a much sought after skin care line for helping reduce the look of aging skin, sun damaged, dry, and dull skin. It seems a popular choice of skin care for many a celebrity.
I can’t tell you from experience if using this skin care line is any good as I have never used it. I have my own natural skin care routine that I am happy with.
Although my curiosity certainly got the better of me, when I heard about Obagi skin care products. I thought at first it would be something I could use on my skin.
There is, of course, as usual, two sides to this type of skin care product. One side raves about how wonderful this stuff is for skin, the other side cautions against using it.
Who do you believe? Well, once again, it is a personal choice, what works wonders for one, may not necessarily work wonders for you. Through all my trawling around internet forums and the like, most of the reviews and people’s experience using this skin care range were pretty good.
By the same token, I would caution against using their products containing tretinoin without fully understanding how the product works first. It may cause severe redness and it may or may not work for you.
Obagi skin care products contain some chemicals.
For example, if you use their basic cleanser, toner, and moisturiser. You will be getting just as many parabens as you will using any other chemical laden moisturiser and cleanser.
Paragons are linked to breast cancer and over time may lead to a build up in the body and affect your health.
If you only want to use natural on your skin, then this type of skin care line is not for you.
I think if you had very bad acne or hyperpigmentation. This is a darkening of the skin caused by overproduction of pigment, then you may have a good reason to use something like Obagi skin care products.
In cases like acne and hyperpigmentation, your doctor may even recommend this product.
If you just want to use Obagi skin products because of all the wonderful things you have heard. Then you may want to stop for a second and consider the price, it is quite expensive compared to other skin care products out there.
And you can buy beautiful natural products for half the price and no chemicals.

Having a specialist or doctor check your skin condition will be beneficial.
Dr. Zein Obagi who first introduced this skin care to the world has since sold the company. He has founded a new skin care line called Zo also for skin health and comes with an expensive price tag as well.
My opinion, if you eat good healthy food, use natural products on your skin. Avoid a diet high in sugar, exercise, drink plenty of water, you probably won’t ever need to spend a lot of money on Obagi skin care products.
