I have been using the Obagi Nuderm system and am going to have to order more. Does anyone know of any alternatives for Blender or Exfoderm? The products are so expensive I can only afford Clear.

Skin TX's products are a bit less expensive, but equally as effective.

Skin Tx Clarite instead of Obagi Clear:

Skin Tx Exfoliant instead of Exfoderm

Shock Obagi alternative. I'll have to check this out being that I use Obagi and it can get expensive.


However, I purchase my Obagi products on ebay from a reputable vendor for a decent price.

I wonder how long it takes for you to use one set of Obagi Nuderm. For myself, I used one set in about 6 months!

My wife uses the ZO Skin Health line from Obagi, which is his less medical line. She's had tremendous results. Only downside is that its pretty expensive.

I watched Obagi speak about this at La Costa one time, pretty interesting approach to skin care.

My wife loves it, my wallet doesn't.

I'm not aware of any Blender alternatives but Exfoderm is a glycolic. Many lines have glycolic serums that would probably work.

I don't think ejdrew needs help with this any longer. The OP wrote this in 2007. Very Happy

I know .. It is so expensive even EDS site. The price of Obagi kit was increased significantly while my paycheck is frozen. I can't afford it now. Sad so sad...

While this post might be old it is certainly relevant in todays economy!!

My fav Obagi blender/clear alternative is Lustra AF (SPF 20). Available from Canadian pharmacy. Contains 4% hydroquinone and a mild acid. Now that I'm really on the down-low due to saving for my kitchen remodel I've been using OTC Artra (less then 5 bucks) 2% hydro, aloe, UVA & UVB sunscreens. I just mix them in my hand with Retin A purchased from medsmex. Pretty much the same peeling effect. Girls, don't use this when sanding drywall, the grit has made my face look really bad!! *LOL*

OH yeah, Hi everyone! Long time lurker. Smile


Cheers! KAT

Hi Kat from Cat.

I have found medsmex.com to be unavailable for about 3 days. The tab says the shop is closed. What is this canadian site? Does it require a px? I'm about to run out of my Renova! Talk about drywall in your face! Help! thanks in advance.
