ZO Skin Health Radical Night Repair Plus - give your skin some tough love!

ZO Skin Health, the newest skincare line from Beverly Hills dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi arrived in Canada last fall with a line of products meant to bridge the gap between medical products and daily skin care with potent formulas and high concentrations of active ingredients to awaken skin cells and produce collagen and elastin.

One of the star products in the line is:

ZO Skin Health by Zein Obagi, MD -  ZO Skin Health Ossential Radical Night Repair Plus - 30ml - $210 - contains 1% retinol - which is 5X more retinol than traditional anti-aging products - so it works harder, and deeper, to address advanced photo-aging by reducing lines and wrinkles, lightening hyper pigmentation and increasing skin's thickness and elasticity.

You can mark this one down in the "beauty is pain' column - while you will love the results, it's a special kind of hell getting there. Expect to experience mild to severe irritation, redness and temporary peeling which are annoying but signs that your damaged skin is being repaired, you can expect the peeling to continue as long as there is damage. You are best to begin applying the cream gradually - say every other day - and increasing the frequency of application as your skin becomes more tolerant.

I have been wanting to try it for ages with the problem being that there hasn't been a stretch of time where I could afford to be all peel-y! I've been job hunting and I highly suspect that a lizard face would not be considered a positive by potential employers! I decided to give it a try on my hands so at least I could have an idea of what it does/how it feels. I suspect I got less irritation because the skin on the hands is thicker than the face but I am getting plenty of peeling and redness and am looking forward to incredibly youthful hands!

Exfoliating Cleanser - 150ml - $54; Hydrating Cleanser - 150ml - $54, Exfoliating Polish - 2oz - $90, Sunscreen + Primer SPF 30 - 30ml - $78, Overnight Hand Recovery - 100ml - $60, Microderm Hand Renewal - 1oz - $210, Daily Power Defense - 30ml - $215, Growth Factor Serum - 30ml - $215, Daily Renewal Cream - 50ml - $115, Overnight Recovery Cream - 100ml - $115, Intense Eye Repair - 15ml - $160, TE-Pads Acne Pre Treatment - 60 pads - $54, Gentle Anti-Aging Kit - DNA Repair Program - contains: 40ml Exfoliating Cleanser; 30ml Daily Power Defense; 20ml Growth Factor Serum; 15ml Sunscreen + Primer SPF 30 - $300, Aggressive Anti-Aging - Radical Night Repair Plus Program - contains: 40ml Hydrating Cleanser; 0.5oz Exfoliating Polish; 30ml Radical Night Repair; 50ml Daily Renewal Cream; 15ml Sunscreen + Primer SPF 30 - $320
