Oh My Gosh! Do You Have Chickenpox??

Yes, that has been asked of me before… because of the many breakouts and the horrid acne I had on my back and shoulders.  Not cute.  At all.  Most women have struggles with hormonal acne at least once in their life and it always is at the very worst time.  Mine decided to come after baby #3, the handsome Baby Jeff.  Pregnancy and hormones hated me. 

Dr. Leventhal lived next door to me at the time and was just starting East Memphis Aesthetics.  I deemed myself her personal guinea pig for almost everything.  Juverderm in my lips, Botox around my eyes, Seraphim Skincare, Image products, Cranberry peels, waxing….pretty much everything.  The acne products were the worst struggle.  Nothing really worked.  Everything burned. I even had a chemical burn on the left side of my face from using an Image mask for too long!!!  UGLY!!!

When we first carried OBAGI we only had the core pieces of the Nu-Derm System and several other lines that included vitamin c and acne medication.  One day our sweet OBAGI rep(Jennifer)looked at my skin and said…”please try this Pore Therapy, and if you do, you will never use anything else!’ 

I feel like there should be some angels singing when you see this bottle for the first time…..

From that moment on…. OBAGI Pore Therapy, has been my very best friend and go to product even when I am almost too lazy to wash my face(or I have had an extra glass off wine)

  1. It contains salicylic acid
  2. It is a liquid.
  3. It makes my skin feel cold when I put it on
  4. It smells really great.
  5. It is the ONLY product I have ever used that helps with blackheads and congestion on my face and shoulders. Prevents and corrects acne.
  6. Everyone that buys it and adds it into their normal Obagi routine(in place of Toner #2) LOVES it and is addicted.
  7. We sell out of it…a lot, becasue that many people love it.  

My supa’ handsome boyfriend tries to steal it out of my medicine cabinet.  He loves it.  People compliment his skin when he uses it..(he will probably kill me when he finds out that I outed him on-line…he wears camo out in public, like to Alchemy for date night…so he still has his man card!)

Teenage girl and boy clients of ours have seen GIANT progress in their skin from the OBAGI Clenziderm products.  The system is only 3 steps.  Wash, tone, spot treat.  ….and sunscreen of course. Image

Being in the 7th grade is hard, being in the 7th grade with acne and zits, is EMBARRASSING! 

Being 31 is hard, being 31 with acne and a zit, is HORRIBLE!

Being 45 is hard(I don’t know this first hand, but I sure hear it a lot)…Being 45 with a zit is TRAGIC!

Never fear….we will help you keep it all under control!
