Sorry I haven't been posting in awhile. I was out of the country. I stopped Obagi probably 6 weeks into it.
It caused really bad breakouts, which ended up scarring my skin. I can't handle my skin becoming more scarred than it is already, and having to go through months of Obagi in order to finally get a good result in the end is not worth it to me at this point.

I am 27, have had acne since I was 11. Most of my face is covered in some type of scar; some ice pick, some box, alot of surface scarring. and I still break out, but it has improved alot since I was a teenager. I have done Accutane twice.
