Obagi Nu Derm Toner Review

Looking for an even deeper clean? Obagi Nu-Derm Toner removes any remaining impurities, be it make-up, dirt, oils and grime, to reveal your best skin. And it does the job without overly drying out your skin.

Designed especially with normal to oily skin in mind, Obagi Nu-Derm Toner hydrates and tones your skin.

The Obagi Toner also works well to restore normal pH balance, which is usually affected by environmental toxins.

Gentle enough to be used every day, theToner is just as great for mature, combination or sensitive skin (because it has no alcohol content).

A refreshing blend of natural ingredients and herbs, the Toner will remove any flaking that may have been caused by exfoliating products, leaving your skin refreshed, clean and clear.

Formulated with alum (a natural astringent), the Toner is a perfect preparation for applying bleaching agents, such as Obagi Clear, as it allows for optimal penetration.

Another key ingredient in the toner is Witch Hazel which acts as an astringent, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory.

Sure enough, the Toner does a good job calming the skin and relieves any discomfort and tightness which you may experience following make-up removal and cleansing.

Obagi Toner Review Summary:


  • does not dry out skin or cause flakiness
  • doesn’t burn or sting (because it has no alcohol content)
  • does not cause redness unlike other toners
  • mild and non-abrasive but very effective
  • non-sticky
  • very soothing
  • a little goes a long way
  • has a fresh, lovely scent
  • tightens pores (pores look and feel smaller)
  • calms down your skin, reducing redness, moderate acne, and excessive oil
  • a perfect follow up for cleansing gels which sometimes don’t get rid of all the impurities in your skin.


  • it’s a little overpriced for a toner but then again its better than most toners
  • works best with other Obagi products but that’s not necessarily a bad thing since the Obagi line is quite great.
  • doesn’t help get rid of cystic acne but works well on moderate acne. However fighting acne is not what it was designed for – its just an additional benefit.
