Before meeting women’s lifestyle blogger Mandy Rose we were already a fan. Her blog about home décor, DIY, fashion and motherhood is creative and inspiring—if you haven’t read it yet check it out*. What we didn’t know was that Mandy was a fan back! After hosting a blogger breakfast event, we learned that Mandy had melasma, a very common patchy brown, tan, or blue-gray facial skin discoloration, and used Obagi products to clear her skin. We asked Mandy to share her story and photos, which show her incredible transformation.**
Name: Mandy Rose
Location: Carterville, IL
Primary Skin Concern: melasma, sun spots, scars
Current Skin Care Regimen: Obagi Nu-Derm® System
Skin Care Advice: Be consistent and committed when you use the Obagi system. It takes time to see results, but don’t get frustrated. You WILL see results!
Obagi: Tell us about your Obagi experience. How were you introduced and how has your skin transformed?
Mandy Rose: I was first introduced to Obagi products by my dermatologist after I developed terrible melasma with my pregnancy. I wanted the brown spots to disappear and nothing I was doing worked. As a woman, you know how important it is that your skin is clear and radiant. The Obagi Nu-Derm System is the ONLY thing I found that would completely take away the melasma. Although I started the Obagi System because of my melasma, I was pleased to see that my sun spots and scars from where I had picked when I was younger had diminished as well.
I was so self-conscious of my skin before and never wanted to leave my house without makeup. After using Obagi, I have a new found confidence about my skin that I have never had before. It has been an exciting transformation to see how the overall balance and color of my skin tone has evened out! Thank you Obagi!
Did you get discouraged throughout the process and how did you overcome it?
I do remember when I first started using Obagi and I wasn’t seeing a change immediately...I got discouraged. But I just kept using it every morning and every night and eventually my skin went through a complete transformation! Looking back at my before pictures...it truly is amazing to see how much Obagi has helped my skin!
