Curology - The Cleanser
#Che Natural - Turmeric Soap[products]# At the beginning of the year, I had really stubborn dark spots and acne scaring. The first product I tried was Curology. I do believe the Curology cleanser, moisturizer, and treatment did play a role in clearing up my skin. Although, the product did plateau after 4 weeks. I continued with just washing with Turmeric soap and it that did wonders for my skin.

Lactic Acid 5% plus HA
I needed an exfoliator to put into my routine because i noticed my skin was getting clogged from wearing more makeup than usual. I decided on trying the The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA after seeing that @DermDoctorrecommended it. The first time i put it on it stung a bit but i expected it because my skin isn’t used to it. I put it on after my Curology - Curology formula which i don’t know if that’s the best decision. If I shouldn’t be using them together please let me know. After i put it on i put on my moisturizer. I’ve been using it for a while now and it definitely helped me personally clear up my face. It doesn’t sting at all when I put it on. I totally recommend it!

Curology?
Recently my skin hasn’t been great. I’ve been dealing with blackheads, large pores, and a little bit of acne. I have also noticed that for some reason my face has been more red than usual. I keep seeing advertisements for Curology, and their products have really good reviews. I’ve also seen a lot of before and after pictures of people using these products. The results seem to be amazing. Has anyone tried these products, and if so did they work for you? Would you recommend these products to me for my skin issues?

My curology experience
There have been many mixed reviews on curology. From what I have seen, many people claim curology made their skin worse when it actually was just in the purging phase. When you start a new skincare product, your skin may purge or break out more than usual. This is the product pushing everything from below the skin surface to the top to get rid of it. So, from what I have seen, I really do think many have not understood purging and gave up on curology right away. However, some people did in fact have bad reactions/ experiences. Everyone’s skin is different, but I wanted to share my story! The pictures above are my before and what my skin looks like now! My experience: I did purge when I first started my medication. The formula I started with was 4% Azeliac acid, 1% clindamycin, and 4% niacinimide. This formula worked well at first, but my skin wasn’t clearing up as fast as I wanted it to, so I asked for a change in formula. My formula I use now is 8% azeliac acid, 1% clindamycin, and .025% zinc pyrithione. I love the formula I have now works very well for my skin and I am loving my results so far! I have been on curology for about 7 months and I plan on cutting back once my skin starts to clear. As of now, my routine is to use curology every night except for Wednesday’s and Sundays (days I use paulas choice liquid exfolaint). My overall review: The curology team is very kind and accommodating to their patients. This is a very convenient way to get a prescription and have a dermatologist to talk to. I have been seeing great results from my medicine and I look forward to finally having clear skin! I do know that curology isn’t for everyone and not everyone will have the same great experience as me. However, I do encourage anyone who wants to try it to do so! You can cancel at any time and you won’t know if it works for you until your try! I recommend anyone to try it out! Curology - Curology formula Curology - The Cleanser Curology - The Moisturizer

⬅️Check my previous post to see the Results and my experience with Curology !! ✨ What is Curology? ➡️ It's a prescription skincare subscription that deliveres a CUSTOM formula that's made only FOR YOU!! They pair you with a licensed Dermologist to assess your skin concern with the help of your photos, questionnaire and allowing you to fill up what you expect. The dermologist then prescribes you a custom formula that's a mixture of Active ingredients that you don't necessarily get over the counter and that formula is sent to you every two months or every month. They offer first month trial set free(4.99$ Shipping cost) for you to try and test if it works for you!! ❤️👍 I’ve chosen the Cleanser, moisturizer and Custom formula sey. It is gentle and basic but effective for my Acne/blemish prone skin. ✨My experience ➡️ I decided to order their Free trial set with shipping cost 4.99$. I thought to myself why not? It's free for a month and anyway my other skincare actives are not doing the best job. Curology - Curology formula Curology - The Moisturizer Curology - The Cleanser ❤️✨The cleanser and moisturizer are pretty basic and gentle. They don’t disclose the full ingredients list of those two but the feel and usage experience is pretty gentle and effective. The cleanser cleans the sebum and first pretty well and is a great second cleanse for me. Moisturizer is Gel formula which I had the chance to choose as they offer two types of moisturizers, one for Oily skin types (gel formula) and second is Thick, occlusive one (Dry/Aging skin types) My Custom formula contains 4% Azaleic acid + 4% Niacinamide + 1% Clindamycin. Azaleic acid has anti microbial properties as well as it helps with controlling melanin production hence reduces Hyperpigmentation ✨ Niacinamide helps with excess oiliness and sebum production, also it brightens skin. Clindamycin topically is applied to kill the Acne bacteria and helps to prevent future breakouts 👍 I started using Curology in April. I experienced my skin and my acne getting better in just ONE DAY!! It's amazing. I started to take pictures of my face to keep track of my skin journey and my skin journey is phenomenal. Now, my Acne is quite covered up I'm going to have a talk with my Dermologist on their website and get the formula changed to target PIH (Dark spots) I'm so happy and satisfied with @curology and I don't think any other products would work this amazing and with such limited time!!✨👍

CUROLOGY TO THE RESCUE !!!
CUROLOGY TO THE RESCUE !!!
So my bff had really bad acne. Hormonal/oily combo + cystic. The worst.... 😭😭 I noticed in February her skin was looking really clear and I asked her what she was using/doing differently. She told me she uses the Curology 3 step system. I was not too thrilled when I heard 3 step system because I had tried other brands like that and it hasn’t worked out for my acne. But I gave it a shot. I signed up for there $5 “trial box” and took really in depth pictures of my acne for the dermatologists down at Curology to concoct me my very own serum to pair with their cleanser + moisturizer. After about 3 days I noticed my skin was clearer. So I was hooked and sad after the trial was over. For about $50 every 2 months they send you your 3 FULL SIZE PRODUCTS! That’s a pretty good deal knowing I’m getting customized skincare to my door ;) also I am from San Diego and this is a San Diego based company !!!! CUROLOGY IS DEF MAKING MY HOMETOWN PROUD 🙏🏻🤩💚 I would try this out if your loosing hope and have tried EVERYTHING. I incorporate the cleanser + moisturizer + acne serum with my toners, serums & face essences and they pair all beautifully! I will be uploading a video for my DAYTIME ROUTINE showing you my steps with Curology soon!! ❤️💕❤️💕

This moisturizer has helped my skin- which needs moisturizer but only a light amount- so much. At first I was using too little so my skin was dry, then too much so my acne became more prominent, then I found the perfect amount and it keeps my skin fresh and moisturized! The consistency is a little jelly like and it cools down my skin so much. 4/5 (just because you have to toy around with the amount you use for a little)

Curology Review
Curology Review
Curology - The Cleanser It’s not clear if this product is for oily or dry skin. It seems to be for dry skin and I have oily skin. It seems to be a bit thicker than the Cerave Hydrading Cleanser. I have fungal acne and I ran this product through Sezia and it has products that wont help my fungal acne. Curology - Curology formulaIt’s too early to tell if my personal formula is working. My formula is Niacinamide 4%, Clindamycin 1%, and Zinc Pyrithione .25%. I have used Zinc Pyrithione before at 1% so I don’t know if this will help. Curology - The Moisturizer This moisturizer is very light weight which is good for my oil skin, but has ingredients that are bad for fungal acne. The acne body wash has Tea Tree Oil and I’m not sure how to feel about it. Since it’s a wash off treatment and meant for the body the fragrance isn’t too bad but I don’t like the smell. Overall: I wouldn’t recommend the moisture for oily skin. I’ll wait and see if I see any results before looking at my personal formula.

Week 7
Week 7
It’s been about a week since my last update. I noticed I have less bumps, but nothing drastic. It’s one of those things only ‘you’ can notice. But anyway, I wanted to add the products I have been using regularly for these past few weeks and months for some products. The first slide is what I use in the morning and the second slide is what I use at night. For mornings, I wash my face with the low PH cleanser and use an SPF moisturizer everyday. I’ve been using these products since before I started using Differin. I haven’t had any problems with either of these products. At night I use the Cetaphil normal to oily skin cleanser and then apply Differin all over my face. I wait a few minutes and then apply my CeraVe night cream. I started using these products when I started Differin. I also haven’t had any problems with these products. I wasn’t sure what products to use when I started my Differin journey so hopefully this helps someone navigate their way through so many products out there. COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser dear, klairs - Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA ++++ Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream

Get your greens!!!
Get your greens!!!
Starting this beautiful Monday off with all my favorite greens. A green detox juice from my local juicery, Farmacy’s Daily Greens moisturizer, and YTTP’s superfood cleanser. I just started using FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya as it was one of the minis in the current Sephora favorites kit (you get to try 5 things for $10 a steal!). I have combination and acne prone skin so I only use heavy creams at night, and switch to gel moisturizers in the morning. I wanted to try a new gel moisturizer and had seen so many people talking about this one. It is amazing! The perfect texture and my skin drinks it up in the morning. The smell was a little different from what I expected, but overall I really like it. Many people said this is perfect for summer, which I do agree with, but I will likely use it year round. I already have a post about YTTP superfood cleanser but just want to say again how much I love it. Antioxidants for the win!
