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.

When it comes to moisturizers, there may be plenty of choices out there, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to find the right moisturizer for you. We’re talking the perfect texture and buildable hydration, without pore-clogging or irritating ingredients. That’s why Curology has two of their own moisturizers with research-backed ingredients. Curology’s gel moisturizer has a lightweight, cloud-like texture made only with ingredients your skin needs — nothing extra. We also have a rich moisturizer with a creamy texture for even deeper hydration!

Designed by our in-house dermatologists to be non-clogging and safe for sensitive skin, both moisturizers are non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, dye-free, paraben-free, and hypoallergenic. It’s the perfect upgrade to your everyday skincare routine, no matter what your skin’s individual quirks may be.

Here’s a quick guide to determine which moisturizer is right for you — and how easy it is to refresh your skincare routine.


Your skin will feel soft and hydrated right after you apply the moisturizer, but there are long-term benefits too! One of the key ingredients is hyaluronic acid, which helps skin retain moisture over time.

Lather, rinse, rehydrate

After washing your face with the Curology cleanser (check out our quick guide here!), gently pat your skin dry, leaving it slightly damp before applying the moisturizer. Moisturizer absorbs best into freshly-washed skin that’s still a little damp, but not wet — kind of like a sponge, damp skin is more absorbent.

Buildable coverage

Since the moisturizer doesn’t clog pores, use however much you want! Apply a thin layer if that feels good, or build more layers if you want extra hydration. Allow the moisturizer to dry, then finish off with your favorite sunscreen.

Overnight success

At night, you can apply the moisturizer after your custom Curology cream — if you need it, that is. The moisturizer can help soothe your skin if it’s adjusting to the active ingredients in your superbottle. However, your Curology cream is already formulated with a lightly moisturizing base, so you might not need additional moisturizer at night.
