FINALLY!!! Obagi without PARABENS!!!!
on June 8, 2013
I was on the Obagi Nuderm system for a year and it worked WONDERS on my age spotted sun worshipped
skin but when I learned recently about parabens, which are lab made preservatives that have been
found in breast cancer tumors, etc, I threw all of it out. I needed to take a break from the Nuderm
system anyways and my skin was where it needed to be.
My friend, whom I introduced Obagi to, got this Hydrate from her aesthetician's office and told me
that it was paraben free! She loves it so I thought I'd give it a try on the evenings sunscreen isn't
needed and to alleviate my dry chin and mouth area. I bought it here on Amazon and saved $12 instead
of buying it at my dermatologists office! YEs!!!!
I have used it about 3-4 times and I used it last night and I woke up this morning and the skin around
my mouth and chin was flaky. Unsure if it this is meant to be just an "as-needed" spot treatment for dryness
instead of as a night cream. This does go on silky though and it reminds me of how those
dymethicone products feel. It has no scent which I am very glad about. And I have not tried to wear it in the
morning/daytime because I wear an spf 30 under my tinted moisturizer.
I am currently on Image Skincare products and love it but some of my sun spots have come back even though
I do use spf 30 every single day so I want to eventually go back to the Obagi Nuderm line but I refuse
to until they make the entire line paraben free. (not only are parabens found in paraben users breast and
other cancerous tumors but is also found to raise estrogen levels and there are also concerns with parebens
in childrens bathing products etc causing premature breast growth as well as pubic hair growth in as young
as 4 yr olds!!).
PLEASE OBAGI FOLLOW WHAT YOU DID WITH THIS PRODUCT AND MAKE ALL OF YOUR LINE PARABEN FREE!
