    Hello, I came across your review on Curology. Since this is an old post, can you tell me if you still use Curology skin care? Thank you!

  2. Jessica says:

    What happens if you stop using curology?

    • Jenny says:

      I’m not sure what the case would be if you were dealing with acne, but in my case (anti-aging and brightening), you’d no longer notice any continuous improvement to your skin, but it shouldn’t regress to the previous state. However I’d recommend asking Curology directly to confirm :)

    I been on antibiotic for a year on and off, but i know being on them for too long is not good for you. Now that i ran out of antibiotic im breaking out again. i suffer from cystic acne, around my chin area. I wonder if anyone with the same problem has used this

  4. Amber says:

    I am on day two of my Curology bottle and I’m already seeing results! I suffer from hormonal acne and horrible acne scars. I’v seen a dermatologist in the past and two prescriptions and a pretty large dermatology bill later, I still had ACNE!! My formulation is 8% Azelaic Acid, 1% Clindamycin and .25% Zinc Pyrithione.

    Wish me luck!!

    Did you do this only at night or morning and night?

    • Jenny says:

      Curology should only be applied during the evenings as the active ingredients can make your skin more photosensitive. Since every formula is unique to your skin type, your assigned healthcare provider will give you clear instructions on how and when it should be used. You can always message them directly if you have any questions.

    Did you apply curology to you undereyes area?

    • Jenny says:

      I apply this all over my face, which does include my under eye area. I tend to focus more on my forehead and my cheeks where I have hyper pigmentation, and as I massage it in I’ll bring it to my eye area. I haven’t experienced any issues doing this, but I would definitely check with your Curology health care provider, since every formula is different. Hope this helps!

    That’s interesting! I’ve never heard of Curology, but it sounds like a great service. It’s nice that the treatment is customized for you, and I’m glad you’re already seeing improvements after only a month :D Hopefully it’ll continue!

    I started seeing a dermatologist a couple years ago, and it was seriously life changing. I saw him about a scar that had grown into a bump and was causing irritation. I dealt with for a few years before being fed up and booking the appointment. After a few treatments, it was flattened, and I was like, why didn’t I do this earlier???

    I also told him that I was frustrated that I was in my late 20s and still struggled with acne, no matter what products I tried. Now I’m on a prescription cream and face wipe, and my skin has improved drastically. I might get a pimple now and then, but for the most part, my acne problem is gone.

    Fortunately, my insurance covers the visits and prescriptions, though not every treatment. I have a feeling it’s because the insurance companies see it as cosmetic and not necessary, but it’s amazing how much better you feel when your skincare problems are finally solved.

      That’s awesome Cat! I’ve heard a lot of stories where people who struggle with acne saw huge improvements as soon as they saw a dermatologist! I’m not too familiar with anti-acne ingredients myself but I think there are several very powerful ones that are prescription only, which could be why. That’s great that your visits and some prescriptions covered in your insurance. I wish insurance companies would realize that seeing a dermatologist is more than a superficial thing – it can really affect a person’s well-being!
