We’re here to share what we know — but don’t take it as medical advice. Talk to your medical provider if you have questions.

Since 2014, Curology has helped thousands of patients build personalized skincare routines that work—but you don’t have to take our word for it. Every day, real Curology members* share their dramatic results after sticking with their Curology routine for as little as six weeks. 

Everyone’s skin is different, and Curology isn’t right for everyone, but today, we’re sharing some of the stories behind the faces that have been helped by Curology from some of our brand ambassadors

We asked them to tell us about their skincare journey (and compensated them for their time). While we can’t promise Curology will work for everyone, and results will vary, we're here to share what we know. 93% of our patients say Curology works—here’s why. 

1. Curology really works

“The combination of prescription-strength ingredients with the constant guidance of my respective skin expert has truly allowed my skin—and my life—to change.” —Christian Franz, Curology member since October 2018

Curology was founded by dermatologists to make prescription-strength skincare affordable and effective for acne patients. Our flagship product is the Custom Formula, mixed with a special blend of active ingredients chosen for your unique skin concerns. All of our skincare products are designed to be non-clogging with simple, gentle ingredients.

2. Curology restored my confidence

“Curology completely restored my complexion and my confidence! It is such a freeing feeling to be comfortable in my own skin.” —Lea Stuart, Curology member since April 2019

Acne doesn’t define you, but nothing beats the feeling of finally being breakout-free. Curology takes the guesswork out of skincare with dermatologist-designed products and expert medical advice, so you can keep calm and apply your Custom Formula. 

How to use Curology products

3. My personal formula is customized to my needs

“I love that my bottle is made for me to help tackle my specific skin concerns. After trying so many different off-the-shelf brands, I realized that my skin wasn’t like the general public’s—that’s where Curology shined in. And just as my skin has evolved, Curology has evolved with it!” —Iomar Rodriguez, Curology member since March 2019 

Your Custom Formula is tailored to your skin’s specific needs, so just one product can help you throughout your skin’s journey to its ultimate glow. 

4. Curology is affordable

“I was a struggling college student when I found Curology. With how affordable it was, I felt like I had found exactly what I needed to take care of my skin.” —Courtney King, Curology member since August 2017

With Curology, you can skip co-pays and pharmacies by having prescription-strength skincare sent straight to your door. Your first month is free (just pay $4.95 shipping and handling). After that, you can choose the plan that works best for you.

5. Curology saved me time

“I love the convenience of having the product delivered directly to my door! I don’t even have to think about when I need to get more products because it’s always on time.” —Chyna Delk, Curology member since May 2020

Curology is a total skincare line, so you can get a complete skincare routine that works without ever having to leave the house (or read another blog). 

Curology Providers

6. I got expert advice from a medical provider

“I love my medical provider! Whenever I have questions or concerns, they are always super quick to help me out! I especially like that they were able to personalize my formula to me, because I have really sensitive skin!” —Azure Otani, Curology member since October 2019 

Curology members are paired with a medical provider trained in dermatology and licensed to practice in your state. You can ask them questions any time and talk about your skin’s progress. So when your skincare routine needs some tweaks, you’ll have the expert help you need at your fingertips. 

Not sure your formula is working for you? Your medical provider will work with you until they find a perfect match. Read more about formula changes here.

7. It’s the easiest skincare routine ever

““Forever grateful for the simplicity of Curology’s three-step routine because that’s all it took for me to gain my confidence back.” —Ashley Jefferson, Curology member since March 2020

Did we mention Curology is easy? It’s just 3 steps: cleanse, treat, moisturize. Boom, done.
