Using a vitamin-C based serum on the skin has become an insanely popular method of treating signs of aging these days. Why? Because it's effective. A vitamin-C infused formula can help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brighten up the skin, help improve the skin's natural moisture content, and more.
Obagi's line of Professional-C serums are known as being some of the most effective on the market. Tests have shown that Obagi's vitamin-c serums provide deeper skin penetration and absorption than other brands. Obagi also has some of the highest consumer satisfaction ratings with their products.
Overall, vitamin-C is a powerful agent in aiding the restoration process of the skin. And Obagi's Professional-C Serum is probably one of the best out there. It's available in three different potencies:
If you have sensitive, dry, or inflamed skin the 10% variant is probably you're best option. This serum is dosed appropriately for individuals with delicate skin that still want to improve their appearance. It does a great job of providing all the benefits of a vitamin-C serum without being too harsh.
The 15% serum is what Obagi considers to be a high-performance option that is safe to use on most skin types. It's slightly stronger than its predecessor which, usually, leads to improved results but is still gentle enough not to cause irritation.
The 20% serum is classified as being a highly concentrated product that works best for individuals with normal to oily skin types.
Data collected on a page, while useful, isn't always the best thing to go by when attempting to determine if you should purchase a product or not. A better way to evaluate a product's effectiveness is to read the opinions of individuals that have already used it.

That said, here some real reviews from consumers regarding these Professional-C serums:
We are strong believers in the power of vitamin-C. And if you want to reap all the benefits of it and improve the overall appearance of your skin we definitely recommend trying out Obagi's line of Professional-C serums. They are some of the most high-quality, highly-effective serums on the market.
The official Obagi website states that in order to use this product you must apply it to cleansed skin in the morning before applying any sunscreen or makeup. The site instructs users to apply a total of 5-7 drops of the solution to the face, neck, and chest, rubbing it in until fully absorbed using the fingertips.
As mentioned above, Obagi's line of Professional-C serums aren't the easiest products to find. Many other brands are easily located in popular beauty stores such as Ulta or Sephora. Obagi, however, is most easily obtained online.
