Obagi System Professional-C Serum 10%

Want to maintain healthy youthful skin? Start packing in the Vitamin C. Over time, your skin begins to lose this powerful antioxidant, especially with prolonged sun exposure. Fortunately, Obagi has made a splash with this rapidly-absorbing, lightweight serum. We loved the way our skin drank it in without leaving us feeling oily. Within a week, we noticed smaller pores and less discoloration.
