The Best Obagi Starter Products For Oily Skin Types

by .

Finding an effective skincare line for oily skin can be challenging at times. Whilst the natural inclination is to remove excess oil, many over the counter products over-strip the skin, leaving it feeling tight and dry. So, it’s crucial that skincare products formulated for oily skin are balancing and nourishing too.

Obagi® for Oily Skin

Best-selling Obagi Nu-Derm® Fx Transformation System Normal-Oily is ideal for anyone with normal-oily skin. 

This system contains:

  • Foaming Gel 200ml
  • Toner 198ml 
  • Clear Fx 57g 
  • Exfoderm Forte 57g  
  • Blend Fx 57g 
  • Hydrate 48g 
  • Sun Shield MATTE Broad-Spectrum SPF50 85g  

It’s a clinically proven skincare system that produces a visible improvement in the complexion because the products work synergistically and complement one another. Transformative ingredients, like 7% Arbutin, a natural and effective skin-brightening agent affect change at a cellular level, meaning that results are visible and long-lasting.

Powerful antioxidants and exfoliants clear out the dermis, removing old dead skin cells and impurities from its surface whilst simultaneously preventing future spots and blemishes. Skin is also rebalanced and returned to its baseline pH. Not only that, but this system actively targets the signs of ageing, reducing fine lines and laxity related to sun-damage and environmental damage and it visibly improves hyperpigmentation too.

With regular use, skin looks unbelievably radiant, healthier, even in tone and texture and more youthful. This truly is a comprehensive system that includes everything you need to unleash your skin’s potential. 


Starter Obagi® Products

Fed of tackling oily, greasy skin? These key Obagi® products need to make it onto your next shopping list.

Obagi Nu-Derm Fx® Exfoderm Forte

Obagi Nu-Derm Fx® Exfoderm Forte is a clinical-grade exfoliator containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids, 6% Glycolic Acid and 4% Lactic Acid. It’s a stronger exfoliating formulation, suited to rough or damaged skin and which works to reduce excess oil and pore size.

Powerful natural ingredients within this exfoliator help peel away the surface of the skin, so that new, more evenly pigmented cells can be generated to take the place of dull, dead skin cells. Increased skin cell turnover also helps to diminish dark spots, sunspots, and visibly reduce other signs of ageing, like lines and wrinkles. Say goodbye to dull, rough, blemished skin and hello to a noticeably smoother, brighter, and more even complexion.  For optimal results, use as part of Obagi Nu-Derm® Fx System Normal to Oily.


Obagi Hydrate®

When you have oily skin, it can be really tempting to skip moisturising or to use a moisturiser that’s so light, it doesn’t replenish skin adequately enough. Finding a hydrator that offers continuous hydration and nourishment but also balances skin at the same time is a big ask. Of course, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that Obagi® have created one that achieves this tricky balance. Perfectly formulated for normal to oily skin, it doesn’t leave any greasy residue or clog pores either.

A must have in any skin care routine, Obagi Hydrate® is a clinically proven hydrator that provides eight hours of moisture retention with its cutting-edge 2-in-1 Hydromanil™ Technology. 

These molecules form a matrix on the skin’s surface, meaning they can remain on the cells for longer. Not only do they instantly nourish skin, but they prevent further water loss and over the course of the day, deliver continuous nourishment from active compounds. 

Used regularly as part of your skincare routine, skin feels incredibly smooth, soft, and supple and looks more youthful. Fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet can also be specifically targeted by this product and their appearance improved. For optimal results, use as part of Obagi Nu-Derm® Fx System Normal to Oily.


Best Obagi® Product

It’s always hard to select a ‘best’ Obagi® product because all Obagi® products are so highly effective. There is one we’re especially loving right now though. Meet Obagi-C® RX Cleansing Gel, part of the Obagi-C® Rx early intervention system that helps to prevent and limit the damage caused to skin before the signs of aging become visible.

This gentle anti-ageing cleanser removes makeup, excess oils and impurities, and conditions and prepares the skin for better penetration of the Obagi C® Rx System.
