I used Obagi Professional-C 20% and I am rather impressed by the results.
This rather sticky serum goes on glue-y on the face & has a rather pharmaceutical scent, but within 5 mins, the serum seems to be totally absorbed & the aroma dissipated. What left behind is a complexion that looks plumped & glossed and when I glide my fingers over, my skin feels silky smooth without a trace of greasiness!
After 4 weeks of diligent use, I am happy with the condition of my skin; Refined, brightened & revitalised.
I am now using this serum on my body ( due to recent flea bites that leave some ugly scars ). I shall report back on its scar banishing potential in due course.
