I don't know why but if you gather a bunch of women together in a room, after the discussions over Suri Cruise's existence and Kate Bosworth's shrinking body, ultimately the hottest topic centers around skin care and cosmetics. So this past weekend while in Tahoe for my good friend's bachelorette, we got to talking about the Obagi skincare line. Nevermind that this has already been a hot topic with another group of girlfriends of mine, including one who is a licensed facialist and has the most flawless skin I have ever seen.
So why is it I am so afraid to just plunk down money for this? I am afraid to waste another $200 on something that won't work. I have broken out or been in rashes. Apparently the Obagi-C line is good for those with sensitive skin. It helps even skin tone and lighten small freckles on your face (which I have from the summers of swimming as a kid). It's much more mild than the aggressive Nu Derm line.
LovelySkin.com sells the Obagi line and you'll also get free shipping. I definitely will talk to my dermatologist about this, but if anyone has tried out this line, please comment and let me know what you think about it.
On another note, my friend Andy sent this around. If you got to New Beauty and join their Test Tube program, for a mere $25 every 4 months you'll be sent some high end beauty and skincare products to sample (even some Obagi in there). It seems like a great way to be able to try new things without bursting your wallet.
