Obagi Nu-Derm Fx System (normal-oily) + Obagi Retinol 1.0
The Obagi Nu-Derm Fx System is the top of the range non-prescription cosmeceutical system. A specially formulated transformative skin care system for normal to oily skin (also available for dry skin) including the Arbutin-enhanced Clear Fx and Blend Fx. A natural lightening agent, Arbutin brightens the skin and avoids the use of hydroquinone. While clarifying and brightening, the system evens out and enhances the overall appearance of skin tone. With extracts of pomegranate, pear and bearberry plants this system helps to correct hyperpigmentation, including colour changes (dark spots) and melasma. A superb remedy for discolouration and blotchy skin, the system achieves the best results when combined with the application of Obagi Retinol 1.0 to stimulate new skin cells. With minimal irritation, this high concentration Retinol formula minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol improves complexion and smoothes the appearance of uneven skin texture for clearer-looking skin*. The Nu-Derm system is almost always recommend for use in conjunction with retinoids, for the Fx range this means Obagi Retinol 1.0 is the perfect partner or tretinoin for the Rx System (both prescription only items).
