Obagi: Week 4

I. Am. LOVIN' IT!!!!!

I really, really do!!! 

This week, my skin is at it's best...though I know the best-est is yet to come. Minimal redness, dewy pale pink (like celebrity skin), and smoother than ever. I am starting to hate putting on makeup. Well, I still do, a pump or two of my Dermalogica moisturizer and a pinch of JewelPOP mineral foundie is perfect already. I tried putting on mineral foundation alone, and the effect is porcelain doll-like, surreal, and too perfect for me to handle. 

I really think that Paula's Choice 8% AHA boosts the effect. It goes well with my routine. I wish I could do the same regimen to my body...but that's gonna cost me a fortune. I mean, I really need to do something now about my body to keep up with my facial skin. Soon, I'll create an effective lightening regimen for arms and legs and I'll share it with ya'll. 

So, till next week! ❤️❤️❤️

Obagi: Week 3


I'm at week 3 and 1 day to be exact. It's been a tough week for me. In the middle of this week I've experienced the following:

- purging (two tiny zits popped but they're gone in 2 days, thank God)
- dry and tight skin (the corners of my mouth still hurts, i can barely smile, and i had to exert extra effort to wink/close my eyes!)
- shiny tomato.

The skin didn't come off until day 5. I used my Hello Kitty AHA apple gommage to safely rub the skin off. It did a great job! I love it! Also, I've had a little chit chat with Ms Sha of Paula's Choice Philippines and I got something new to add to my daily routine :)

Yay! So this works like Nu Derm's Exfoderm Forte because it's a glycolic based product. I am going to do a separate review on this one after four weeks. So far, I'm loving it. No sting, no irritation, no drama. I was about to purchase the BHA lotion but then I realized that I no longer have pimples. Besides, Obagi and Retin A does the same job of deep skin treatment so I don't really need too much of that. Another thing is, I suspect that I have allergic reaction to salicylic based products but I'm not really sure of that...maybe I just had chicken and tuna at the same time that day, I dunno. Anyway, I am happy with this new addition and I can't wait to see the result after 4 weeks! 

That is all for this week. If you are an Obagi user or if you have questions, please feel free to share your experience or comment below! 

Have a great week ahead! ❤️

Obagi: Week 2


Week 2 has been very calm. There is not much peeling going on but there's redness, especially on my neck. The best part is after washing my face, the redness goes away for a few minutes and all I see is a lighter, glowing skin. I can't wait to look better. I went out twice and only applied a pinch of my JewelPOP mineral foundation with Dermalogica SPF 30 to conceal redness, it looked dewy, smooth and flawless and it stayed for hours! 

Ugh. I wish I could tell you more that's all for this week.
