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! ❤️
