Years ago, I stumbled upon a skincare brand that revolutionized how we see skincare ingredients nowadays. It used to be that we could only access skincare products with a high concentration of formulas or ingredients through prescriptions. Well, that is still how it works mostly nowadays, but there are some fantastic skincare brands right now that come with medical-grade formulations accessible through popular beauty stores like Sephora or Ulta.

One of the pioneers of these accessible, no-prescription, high-quality skincare products is the renowned dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi. Remember Obagi skincare? Yes, I was and still is a fan of their stuff. Fast forward to this post, the Obagi skincare brand has branched out to produce Zo Skin Health. As in Z.O. Short for Dr. Zein Obagi. This breakthrough skincare brand continues to wow today’s young trailblazing influencers and fashionistas. Want to know why? Because every product that the brand creates is truly outstanding, with their proprietary formulations like no other. It is like every jar and tube from the brand was made to truly improve the skin of anyone who comes in contact with it.

Curious much? Please read about my favorite products from this brand below.


zo skin health complexion renewal pad review


Complexion Renewal Pads – I love this complexion pad so much because it is a gentle exfoliator comprised of glycolic acid and salicylic acid, which helps to decongest the pores. This gives a nice glow-from-within look. The mild peeling effect is perfect for everyday or every other day use. Also, this has botanical ingredients that detoxify the pores and is overall non-drying. The pad itself is non-abrasive and feels soft and smooth to the skin. There is a lovely, clean scent in this product that is refreshing. I recommend this for those who want to add acids to their skincare routine but do not want to get the strong peeling effect.


zo skin health vitamin c


10% Vitamin C Self-Activating – I love adding 10% vitamin C to my routine. This product feels like a supercharged vitamin C primer. This goes smoothly on the skin and gives a mattifying look. The exciting part about this is how it goes well as a base to hold and keep the foundation for hours. With the added vitamin C, the skin brightens with continued use. This improves my skin’s dull, uneven tone and even brightens post-hormonal breakouts.


zo skin health instant pore refiner


Instant Pore Refiner – As you can see, this product is for those of us who struggle with “pore” issues. Enlarged pores? Clogged pores? Give this a try. This product aims to decongest the pores, similar to the Zo Complexion Renewal Pad, but this has Salicyloyl Phytosphingosine, which not only decongests the pores but also minimizes their size. This has vitamins A, C, and E as antioxidants and stem cell complex. Also, this product minimizes skin oiliness and makes it shine-free with its Rosa Canina fruit extract ingredient. This improves my skin’s texture, and my pores do look like it is tightening. How cool is that?

Acne Control – This product has 10% Benzoyl Peroxide, which is impressive because it means the product works! A 10% peroxide is enough to kill bacteria and control acne ASAP. This product is a must because it rescues the skin from any form of breakouts, keeping them invisible and well-controlled. Pairing this with a very hydrating moisturizer or a balm will keep dryness at bay, which comes with using medical-grade benzoyl peroxides.


zo skin health exfoliating polish


Exfoliating Polish – I have an obsession with this exfoliating facial scrub. This is a must-have and a holy-grail material. This ethereal blue scrub with galactical swirls warms on the skin upon contact. I am not talking about the slight warming effect; I am talking about the profound warming effect that makes you stop and look at what is inside the jar that makes it so magical. The scrub is not just any other scrub; there is vitamin C in it, and it feels like a thousand tiny particles gently exfoliating your skin and getting rid of any dead skin cells. The tiny particles are magnesium oxide crystals, which regulate cell regeneration. This has a clean soap scent, but it is not overwhelming. It smells fresh and different from any other exfoliating scrub I have tried. Therefore, you must run, not walk. Get this facial scrub ASAP.

I recommend this brand if you want a serious skincare brand with quality formulas that genuinely deliver. This brand is endorsed by Dr. Raj Terkonda (top facial plastic surgeon) and Dr. Ed Hepworth(The king of ENTs/extraordinaire). What more could you ask for? Isn’t that amazing?
