Description Summary How to use Key Ingredients Works Well With

Obagi Nu-Derm Blend Fx is a skin-brightening cream formulated for use at night to clarify and brighten the skin. For all non-sensitive skin types with pigmentation due to superficial and deeper types of hormonal melasma or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Key ingredients include Arbutin 7% which is formulated with a smaller molecule that is able to penetrate into the basal layer to enable a deeper effect on the dermal form of melasma and inhibit tyrosinase activity which stimulates melanin formation. Vitamin C & Vitamin E are renowned for their combined antioxidant properties which help to prevent against pigmentation.

Dr Webster’s Recommendation: Obagi Nu-Derm Blend Fx can be used as a preventative and maintenance cream to help reduce pigmentation. For the best results, you should use it together with the Clear Fx and Exfoderm or the Exfoderm Forte (depending on your skin type). Always use a high-factor, broad-spectrum sunscreen every day and this is especially important if you have pigmentation. Caution:  After a week of using the Nu-Derm regimen there will be some lifting of the deep brown pigment and your skin will be darker in the affected areas but this will reduce within a week or two as the treatment takes effect.

Strength: Arbutin 7% Product Size: 57g SPF: N/A Application Area:  Face Use: PM

  • This product should be used with extreme caution. First time users should always introduce this product slowly until the skin is tolerant. If any irritation occurs use less often and build up tolerance
  • Apply a pea-size amount onto the entire face and leave on at night after cleansing and toning.
  • If using in combination with Obagi Clear Fx it can be mixed together and then applied.
  • Caution: After a week of using the Nu-Derm regimen there will be some lifting of the deep brown pigment and your skin will be darker in the affected areas but this will reduce within a week or two as the treatment takes effect.
  • When using active ingredients such as this product you need to be extremely cautious about using a sunscreen during the day. If you do not use sunscreen, there is a risk of further pigmentation occurring.
  • If you have chronic pigmentation please consult your Dermatologist.

This Obagi range is AMAZING!!! This, along with the clear fx, have become my holy grails and will forever be in my routine – I do not say that lightly. I initially bought them to help with very stubborn hormonal hyperpigmentation around my eyes where no ‘brightening’ products before that, and even retinol eye products, could help get rid of the problem. These were products I was using for over a year with no satisfying results. With consistent use, using the Blend Fx and the Clear Fx together, my eyes are finally a normal colour that matches the rest of my skin and I no longer look like a raccoon. It took time, two months to be specific, but I finally achieved my desired results.

The products have done wonders for the rest of my skin in terms of brightness, texture, and reducing/removing stubborn hyperpigmentation along my cheekbones and my neck. It seems that they also really enhance the efficacy of my other products (serums etc.) because since using them, I can go days without using any of my active ingredients and my skin won’t fall apart – it will look just as good as it does when I’m using my active ingredients consistently, and that’s a very new thing for me. Before these products, If I stopped using my active ingredients for at least three days the quality of my skin would start to decline, but that is not the case anymore. I go two weeks without active skincare and my skin still looks amazing.

Around my eye area, at first it didn’t look like it was doing anything, but If you persist, you will see the AMAZING things that this product (and the Clear Fx) can do for you. I’ve also been on tretinoin/retin-a for two years which is amazing on its own, so when I say that Obagi has something to offer beyond what even tretinoin can do for you I really mean it.

I have had pretty bad melasma around my eyes since my early twenties (mid-30s now, no kids), and my dermatologist recently presrcibed me a round of hydroquinone to help lighten the marks. Knowing that I can use hydroquinone for only three months at a time, I wanted a product that I could switch to for longer-term daily use, and Johani from Dermastore recommended that I try Obagi’s Nu-Derm Blend FX.

I was sceptical after reading some reviews about the smell of the product and people complaining that it did nothing for their pigmentation but, after less than two weeks of using this, I can honestly say that the Blend FX cream works way better than even the high-dose hydroquinone did!

I use the Blend FX cream at night in the place of a serum, and in the morning, I apply the Obagi Professional-C 10% Vitamin C serum. My pigmentation is almost completely dissolved, and as a bonus, this cream sommer took care of the odd pimple (and post-inflammatory pigmentation) too!

I experienced very little peeling, no sensitivity (which is saying something, since my skin is sensitive even to plain water!), no dryness; just beautiful, clear, glowing skin. There is definitely a chemical smell, but it is nowhere near as bad as some reviews say it is, and it doesn’t bother me one bit.

NB. I am religious about slathering on a high SPF sunscreen and reapplying throughout the day (spray-on sunscreens are great for reapplying over make-up).
