The best and gentlest for acne! After struggling for months with retinols that burned, every AHA and BHA product I could find, I signed up for a subscription for Curology and it actually worked. Curology is a subscription based service that makes you a custom formula for around $20 a month. You send photos to a dermatology nurse, and they customized a formula for you based on your skin’s needs. I was struggling with stubborn hormonal acne. I was stressed about the acne, and the stress was making it worse. I felt like I was in such a vicious cycle, and luckily I found this product. They don’t make flashy claims like “2 weeks or your money back,” they actually tell you that it may take some time, ask for your patience, and let you know that can always send your practitioner an email. The effects for me were slow-ish, but I loved that my whole face didn’t peel off, I didn’t have super sun sensitivity, and there weren’t a whole slew of products to buy. I cannot praise this product and this concept enough. If you are struggling with any skin issues, I highly recommend giving them a try! 🙌🏼💗 #cheriecreator
BELIEVE THE HYPE? Personalized acne care.
You’ve seen the ads and the YouTube videos right? You were skeptical too? YUP, me too. Is Curology worth the investment? We’ve all seen the ads and videos. I caved in 6 months ago and decided to try curology . Last fall my skin started to break out and I had a hard time getting it under control, so I said why not and ordered my first bottle of curology . My first bottle was a really, in my opinion, generic formula. My formula was Niacinamide, Azelaic Acid, and Clindamycin. From working in a dermatology office, I knew my formula wasn’t anything special. I noticed other reviews that had the same formula, so my guess is that is the “go to” formula for basically everyone. The first formula didn’t do much for me so I reached out to my curology Dr. and she changed my formula for me. My new formula added Zinc into it and I instantly started to see a difference in my skin. Curology - Curology formula I apply this pretty much every night unless I forget. I apply it as my last serum and then lay my moisturizer and face oil over it. + it’s very hydrating. + after adjusting, the formula is just right for me. + it keeps a lot of little breakouts at bay. + when my skin needs a break from my routine, I just use this. + I pay $40 every 2 months for the bigger size bottle. This an experience catered just for my skin, so I can’t speak for everyone, but I have really enjoyed it. It’s part of my routine and I don’t plan on taking it out. If you are looking for something new to try, curology may be for you. The first bottle is free with just $5 shipping. My best advice is to give it at least 3 months to see signs of improvement and have your formula adjusted if needed! I don’t regret this and will continue to keep my subscription! . Who else has tried curology ?
Curology or Differin for persistent acne?
So I’ve had acne since I was 13 (I’m now 24). When you’ve dealt with an issue like acne for over a decade, you try a whooole lot of different products. These two are my top picks for persistent acne, and I’ll give you a spoiler: Curology comes out on top. Differin gel was previously available only by prescription. The active ingredient is .1% adapalene, a retinoid that works by speeding up cell turnover. Basically, it’s more difficult for pores to get clogged and develop into acne. The texture is a thin gel that absorbs very quickly. It does take some time to work, since it’s a retinoid—you really need to use it consistently for at least 12 weeks to see improvements, and your skin may purge. I used Differin gel for several years, and it cleared my acne to a far better degree than the products I had been using before (proactiv). On the other hand, Curology is a telemedicine service that matches you with a medical provider. You upload pictures of your skin, fill out a questionnaire, and you get prescribed a custom cream with three ingredients, some of which are prescription. Mine is 1% clindamycin, 9% azelaic acid, and .018% tretinoin. While Differin served me well for a good while, Curology has been helping my skin over the last year in a whole new way. I’ll be honest: it hasn’t been easy. My first Curology prescription completely cleared my skin—I’m talking clearest it’s been in a decade—and then my acne came back worse than ever. The bright side is, with Curology, you can contact your provider at any time and they can adjust your formula. I did that, and my provider also prescribed me two months of oral antibiotics to help my breakout clear up faster. They helped immensely, and I’m hopeful that my skin journey is headed in the right direction, though it takes time. Currently, Curology isn’t available in all 50 states, while Differin is. If you’re struggling with acne, my #1 recommendation is Curology because it’s customized to your skin needs and it can be adjusted over time. If Curology isn’t available to you, Differin is also a solid product with proven results. Differin is $30 for a tube that lasts about 3 months, and Curology is $20/month, which is more than worth it to me. Have you used either product? How has it worked for you?

jumiso- AC Cure No Pain No Gain Spot Cream Description | • Botanical ingredient-based Silica penetrates deep into the skin to effectively deliver active ingredients. • Firmly massage the cream into the skin as if directly sensing its permeation. Impression | Decent-looking cream that actually gave me stinging sensation for hours. Thoughts | • After trying this spot cream for several times, I've figured out how to best use it on my acne spot! I'd be applying this right after cleansing as per instruction without spreading it well on the spot area and apply the rest of my skincare while skipping the spot. Once I'm done applying my regular moisturiser, only then I'd gently and carefully spread the spot cream. • This is to avoid the silica-containing spot cream to spread around my facial area which was so irritating for 2 days after that. Overall, I give this cream 4/5. It works superbly but definitely do a patch test before using it. This spot cream might further trigger other sensitive area so please proceed with care and read the instruction properly. I'd definitely be repurchasing but this one goes a little for a long way hence the 15g size.

The thought of having your own personalized formula is awesome! I was super excited to see what it could do for me. My skin is not necessarily acne prone, but I have plenty clogged pores, blockheads and scarring that I wanted to focus on. I used this for a little over 2 months, sent the selfies & followed every step. I was not seeing a positive change in my skin, if anything, it got worse after the purging. It seemed like my skin purged and then stayed that way. I had acne like I had never had before. I wanted to chat with them about it, they changed my formula and sent the new bottle. I used that for about a week before I decided to test it and not use it for a week. My skin starting clearing and looking better, until I started using it again. Needless to say this was NOT for me! Everyone’s skin is different and there are tons of success stories with Curology! Personally, I think it is more geared towards regular everyday acne prone skin and I simply need more products to treat my specific issues.
Worked for me!
I have been using this product for quite some time and I have seen it improve my skin. It is an acne treatment gel. In my experience, I have placed it on a pimple that is not ready to pop yet and I will wake up with it ready to pop. Then, once I pop it, I put it on over the same area and wake up with it completely gone. I think this is an underrated brand as well and is very good. It has an ingredient called salicylic acid which is very good for acne. I rated it 4 stars because sometimes it does not perform amazing but for the most part, it has been very successful for me. (This is my first post so I don’t know if i’m doing this right but thank you for reading)

The Secret To My Clear Skin
I was 13 years old with tons of acne all over my face that just wouldn’t go away. It really messed with my self esteem so I went to Walmart to find something that could help me out. It was called Differin Gel and it was very affordable. I would wash my face with CeraVe the cleanser at night then apply the gel to my face. I would wait 30 minutes before applying moisturizer and that’s all it took. My skin cleared after 2 months and I barely have any breakouts. Differin gel truly helped me and it may seem like it’s not helping, but give it some time. I have sensitive skin so I did get some redness, but eventually it all cleared up. P.S. Make sure to use sunscreen in the morning as well to help not getting sunburnt because it makes you more prone to.

No thank you, NEXT!
When it comes to stress, I’ve been trying Blume’s meltdown treatment. It’s supposed to fight any spots you have and make them disappear overnightS I’ve actually been dealing with two big monsters on my forehead and on my chest, so I decided to fight them with this weapon. Welp, it was a fail. First of, let’s start with the smell. Meltdown consists of black cumin seed oil, chamomile flower oil, blue tansy and more. It more less smelled like a mix of spices you use for your Sunday chicken. Sorry not sorry. I know that Hyram always says not use fragrances on your face, which is what essential oils are but uhh, I HAD TO TRY! The way I used it was: I put a dab of the treatment on my finger and patted it into my pimples. Left it in there and went to sleep. Pimples were still chilling on my face in the morning. I’ve done so for a week and a half... and the pimples are still chilling on my body. I guess it’s just not a product for me! If you tried this, how did your journey go? BLUME - Meltdown Demo
