Something New: Obagi Medical Nu-Derm

Way back before I was even a blogger, I heard about the power of Obagi via my Mother-in-law!  I even thought it's a Japanese skincare (sorry, my bad, can't blame me though, it does sound like one!) and I gave a huge *gasp* when I heard how much they retail!  My mom-in-law purchase her Obagi set from her sister in the US.  She swore by it and she loves it dearly!

No wonder she always gets compliment on how good and healthy her skin looks amidst her age!  And the Obagi Skincare line was her secret!  

That was a couple of years ago.  She didn't have much of the Obagi sent over that's why she settled for the more inexpensive skincare line! 

Not until recently, when Obagi celebrated its 11th year anniversary here in the Philippines, I came to read more about the brand and its effectiveness to men and women via blogs and online websites!  The fact that I have been seeing more and more House of Obagi stores around the Metro, that just proves that they are being patronized!  High patronization = High effectiveness = High Trust Ratings!  (Yes, just like how they rate our President!)  *laughs*

I may be a devil when it comes to product reviews and tend to try everything "promising", not this time!  I actually believe in the effectiveness of Obagi, after hearing stories from close friends and of course, my mom-in-law herself, that's why I will be putting this under the Christmas Tree with "Mom-In-Law's Name" on it!  I know that whatever I am using right now is effective enough and I don't need this..YET!  I'll be putting myself aside and prefer to make her happy this coming Christmas!  

To the li'l birdies out there who may have slippery tongue!  *laughs*  I am not worried, this isn't my only gift to her! *bleh* :P But hey, it'll still be better if she doesn't know ok? *chickening out mode*

The set includes:
Gentle Cleanser/ Foaming Gel (60ml) 
Php1,250.00 (approx $29.00)

Php1,250.00 (approx $29.00)
A refreshing blend of natural ingredients and herbs that hydrates and tones the skin while restoring its normal pH balance. This can be applied after cleansing with a cotton ball on your face and neck avoiding the eyelid area.  Do not rinse off!

Thanks to Obagi for creating smaller sizes of these to fit our budget!  For more details on Obagi, you can check on their WEBSITE.

P.S. If you're interested, I may even interview her once she starts to use this product again so I can report on her experiences!

This isn't new in the market but I include this in my "Something New" post because it is indeed new to me as I've never tried this product ever!
How about you? Are you younger than I am and uses Obagi?  
How does it work for you?  I am seriously intrigued!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
