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.

You can learn a lot about someone from their skincare. Who are any of us without our daily rituals? To some, skincare is an expression of self-love. To others, it only comes up during serious skin emergencies. And the rest of us are somewhere in between. 

Everyone’s skin is unique. Likewise, we may make unique choices about the products we choose because of our subconscious! So, naturally, our skincare routines can tell us a lot about our innate desires. 

Of course, if you really want to learn about your skin, you’ll need a medical expert. So we paired each result with some hand-picked skincare advice from our Curology providers. Because, let’s face it, sometimes our impulse buys aren’t the wisest…

Your skincare personality quiz results are in! 

Skincare Personality Type - Wanderlust


If you answered mostly A’s, you’re a wanderlust! 

Skincare isn’t about the destination—it’s about the journey. You’ll search high and low, holding out for that holy grail—and it’s worth it. Once you find the right skincare product, you tend to be pretty loyal. But you’re not afraid to switch things up, either! You’re methodical in your shopping style, on a constant quest for the best new skincare products. That means you’ll only try a new trend if it’s based on proven research and tend to stick to derm-designed staples (like Curology). It’s crucial for you to learn about products before you try them, and savviness never looked better. 

Skincare Personality Type - Influencer


If you answered mostly B’s, you’re an influencer!

You don’t follow skincare trends—you start them. When it comes to self-care, the most important thing is fun. You’ve got that certain je ne sais quoi, and so does your skincare routine. You love a good shelfie, plus, you actually know how to pronounce “niacinamide.” Cute packaging? Always worth the extra splurge. You’re more likely to read product reviews before making a purchase, and that 5 star rating matters to you. To you, skincare is a form of self-expression. You’re open-minded and make intuitive purchases. We have just one question… can we get that discount code 👀

Skincare Personality Type - Realist


If you answered mostly C’s, you’re a realist! 

Skin = health. Health = important. It’s a no-brainer! To you, skincare is just like brushing your teeth. It’s basic self-care: taking care of your body is taking care of yourself. Cost-effective drugstore products and skincare subscriptions designed by dermatologists are your go-to’s, and you’re more wary of new skincare trends. That’s not to say your routine is just grandma’s Vaseline! You just prefer a no-nonsense approach. To you, skincare should be as easy as possible—that’s just common sense. 

Skincare Personality Type - Visionary


If you answered mostly D’s, you’re a visionary. 

You have a clear point of view when it comes to skincare. All your friends go to you for skincare advice—that’s because you talk to skincare experts, check your facts, and defy the hype. You want to prevent both breakouts and signs of aging, so you research your product’s ingredients before you buy and care less about the drugstore/high-end binary. You prefer a highly-curated routine with multi-tasking products. Skincare minimalism is your friend. To you, it’s all about getting the right results, and it pays off!
