My curology experience

_mhw25_
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

Tips to Get the Most of Curology 🔥 🌟
Thanks for my goodies @curology! So happy to be a part of the #Curologyambassador family! 💗 ⁠ ⁠ Curology doesn’t work 100% of the time for everyone. As you know, skin issues are much more than skin deep. If you have a hormonal imbalance, topicals aren’t going to be the best for you. But they can still help with texture and hyperpigmentation. ⁠ My tip: Many users can tolerate Curology every night. BUT if you’re new to any of its ingredients (like tretinoin), you might want to start slow. So you might find one to begin once a week for two weeks. Then, twice a week. Move up to three times a week. And then try it 4-5 times a week. ⁠ ⁠ First two week: Use twice a week (M/F) Third-four week: Use three times a week (M/W/F) After first month: Use four or five times a week (M/W/F/S) HOWEVER, this timeline only works if your skin is tolerating it. How do you know it is? We’ll make sure you DO NOT have any of these: Sudden dryness Redness Irritation Even if you can tolerate 4-5 times a week, I recommend you give your skin a day or two to relax and use those days for masks and moisturizers instead. 🌟 ⁠ ⁠ PD: I’m linking to my Curology page (I don’t get any commissions) for anyone who wants to try two months for FREE!⁠ ⁠ #curologyambassador⁠

Top 5 January Favorites
Hey ya’ll in today’s mini post we’re talking about my top 5 favorite products of January 2021! First up is the Curology - The Moisturizer which comes in a set with theCurology - The Cleanser for $10. If you don’t listen to my podcast (search ‘Beauty Talk’ wherever you listen) then you wouldn’t know that I’ve been trying Curology for the last month (review coming on Friday). The moisturizer has glycerin and Hylaronic acid which are super hydrating ingredients. I love the lightweight texture that still keeps me moisturized. Hands down never going back to cream moisturizer after this!! Next is theLA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios Dermo-Kids Lotion SPF50 that costs $20 for 6.76 fl oz. It’s a bit greasy, but it makes my skin soft and glowy while also keeping it healthy. Even during lockdown it’s really important to wear sunscreen every single day. Next up is theOSEA - Sea Vitamin Boost which costs $38 for 3.4 fl oz. I was gifted this product by Cherie after I won Cherie Pick, and it’s the only good mist I’ve found. It’s alcohol and fragrance free, has algae and seaweed extract for hydration, and pomegranate extract for brightening. I know I don’t talk a lot about makeup, but I have two makeup picks. First is theNYX - Butter Gloss which costs $5 for .27 fl oz. My good friend @t_l_t bought it for me, and it’s non sticky, and has an early 2000s shimmer effect. Finally is one of my holigrail products that continues to impress me, theL'ORÉAL - Voluminous Carbon Black Waterproof Mascara which costs $9 for .28 fl oz. This is THE MOST lengthening and clump free mascara I’ve ever used and I loveee ittt. That’s it for this post please cheer for this post if you liked it, comment your favorite product from this month, and follow me to join the family and for similar content. -Mae

1 month on curology
1month on curology Hi guys! Been a long time since ive posted...again. Lol, sorry! November-early feb are my really busy months. But ive finally found the time to really sit down and type up a good post. I like to go by quality over quantity. Anyways, lets get to the post. In late October, I noticed that my differin wasn't really working as it used to, I later found out my skin needed something stronger. So I decided to try out Curology. So far so good! First week or two, I experienced little to zero purging. I figured this is because my skin is already used to stronger things. I followed the Curology routine for about a week, then integrated my serums and extra steps. I still saw little irritation. Curology - The Cleanser The face wash, i found this was a very simple and generic face wash. It feels very similar to the Hydrating wash by CeraVE. I wouldnt go out of my way to order this again. Curology - The Moisturizer The moisturizer. I got the more thicker “rich” moisturizer, and needless to say, I LOVED it. I really saw and felt a difference with this moisturizer. It absorbs really well and gives my skin a wonderful glow. However, I wouldnt reorder again because I can just find a dupe lol The pimple patches, these flat out SUCKED. I tried them on 3 different pimples and nothing happened at all. The only thing good about them is that they stayed stuck, but other than that, nope. I can definitely say that Ill be sticking with curology for a while. I not only saw a difference in my acne, but my dark spots and texture!! Its really a game changer for me Curology - Curology formula Clindamycin 1%, Azelaic acid 4%, and Zinc Pyrithione .25% Also peep that weight loss🙈 ive been working out :)

Double Cleansing with This amazing New Product!
Double Cleansing with This amazing New Product!
These days your daily cleanser is very important. Especially when wearing a mask daily, this cleanser will help control Maskne. That’s acne from wearing a mask from all of the rubbing, breathing through the mask. We need to be cleansing daily with specific ingredient to keep from breaking out. I love supporting my friends and family new products and this one is a good one. This is my lashette... Clarrisa. I can’t tell you how proud I am of her. She worked hard on this product line over the years. Clarrisa and I have been “Lashing out” ever since she was in high school. My love that she’s a dynamic entrepreneur who saw her vision and the love for skincare and beauty and she went for it. Now you can find her product line in Ulta beauty. Amazing! This time I tried her daily cleanser which a lot of her whole product line is mixed with natural enzymes that will help feed your skin and is high performance. It also smells delicious. There’s soo many clean benefits with this skincare collection. I recommend you try it and when you do, please dop me a line to let me know how you also enjoy this amazing new products.

How i went from lots of acne to almost none!
CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser Clean&Clear - CONTINUOUS CONTROL® Acne Cleanser I used the Clean and Clear wash in the morning along with a topical cream prescribed to me from my dermatologist and at night used the Cerave along with another topical cream! I also take antibiotics. No face masks or any other special creams that’s all!

Can’t say enough good things about this product. Panoxyl is a fragrance free benzoyl peroxide 10% acne wash. This is marketed as a acne face & body wash which I love to use it as. Mostly I use it on my face as a 5 minute mask when I feel congested. I also leave it on my back and chest for 5 minutes while I shave in the shower to take care of those pesky spots. Nows here’s something not everyone knows but I love to use it under my arms on my armpits as a mask as well! Not only does this exfoliate to leave you with a closer shave under there but it also helps with the bacteria that grows and helps it stink less. It would be really good for people to use if they’re switching to natural deodorant to help make the transition easier! The only complaint is this product is drying but what do y expect from an acne treatment.

WTF happened? Brand Review: clean, natural line
WTF happened? Brand Review: clean, natural line
Let’s hop right in: Hi all, I’m 22 experiencing hormonal and other acne. 9 weeks ago, I was fed up with trying things and never building a consistent, decent routine that was treating my needs. I wanted to feel good about what I was putting on my skin and what my money was supporting. Unfortunately, the search continues. For 9 weeks I willed this line to work for me—I took out steps, I switched out products with their alternatives. I really wanted to love it! It severely congested and textured my skin. The “purging” continues. Looking back I don’t even know why I was so desperate for a better routine. Some/all of these products might work for you, I’m just finding that they didn’t work for me. If you have any questions, feel free ☺️ Pre-routine: Origins (-_-), Alaffia PM Cream, Shea Moisture, TO Niacinamide Serum & Glycolic Acid Toner, Ursa Major The Brand: Bambu Earth (EST. 2009) About: “Real Skincare. Wellness, not flawlessness. Nourishing, not perfecting. Repairing, not retouching.” Pros: Sustainable packaging (glass), small business, woman-owned business, ETHICALLY SOURCED INGREDIENTS, handmade products not made in a factory with simple simple transparent ingredients (score!), price point of cleanser/toner/facial bars, totally enjoyed natural scents of most products , mostly fair prices for sustainable, ethical standards Cons: Price of specialty ingredient concentrate ($$$-may or may not be fair for the ingredients), Price of Intense Hydration Mist ($$), some mini sizes were overpriced and didn’t last 2-week trial (how I ended up getting hung up on this brand for 9 weeks) This brand came along on my social media and after some research it led me to purchase a custom “mini” kit based on a skin quiz I’d taken. For the multiple choice quiz: skin type-dry/dehydrated (tight with some oil on surface) which was the best I could do with the information I had about skin types. For 4 weeks, I did the following in addition to exfoliating with either of the mask options every 3rd day: 1. Massaged into skin for 1-2mins: Makeup/Dirt Cleansing Oil (Sunflower Oil. Safflower Seed Oil, Tamanu Oil, Frankincense Oil, Geranium Essential Oil) All organic ingredients except for frankincense and geranium 2. Remove with warm washcloth, apply Rosewater Cleanser with a cotton pad (Organic flower distillate, vegetable derived glycerin, tea tree leaf oil) 3. Rinse, dry face, spritz with Intense Hydration Mist to saturate face (all organic ingredients: Frankincense hydrosol, Immortelle hydrosol, turmeric hydrosol) 4. Apply dime-sized amount of Cactus Concentrate, pressing into skin while it is still wet (Ingredients: Prickly Pear Seed Oil 🍐, Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter, Shea Butter, Mango Seed Butter, Kukui Nut Oil, Tamanu Oil, Baobab Seed Oil ingredients continued (inorganic ingredients): Blue Tansy Oil 🧜🏼‍♀️, Immortelle Oil, turmeric essential oil, frankincense oil, rosemary leaf extract) Least Favorite Product: BAMBU EARTH - Rosewater Cleanser

MASKNE PROBS? DO A MIDDAY DOUBLE CLEANSE 💧✨
MASKNE PROBS? DO A MIDDAY DOUBLE CLEANSE 💧✨
Noticed some maskne forming on my cheeks and chin from my walk this morning…which called for a midday double cleanse! First apply ERNO LASZLO - Phelityl Pre-Cleansing Oil onto dry face. it dissolves trapped impurities within the pores. formula has a pH level nearly identical to the one in skin which maintains fatty acids essential for healthy skin function! Next take ERNO LASZLO - Phelityl Cleansing Bar and run under warm water. As you massage it onto the face it creates a conditioning lather which maximizes the cleansing process. Without drying out your skin! 💧💧

Acne Be Gone! 💚
Are you struggling with sensitive, oily, acne prone skin?! Well look no further because Rosen Skin Care has you covered! I have had my fair share of trying different products that cater to oily, sensitive, acne prone skin and when I tell you it’s been a true journey! I’ve had both ups and downs with my skin so my regimen has changed over these last few years. I had recently found a product that worked for me then of course all the good stuff never last so the company stopped selling my favorite and only product that worked on my skin. So had to go back on a hunt for a face wash that helped with the type of skin I have. After a couple weeks of searching and also trying a few different brands I came across the brand Rosen. Rosen skin care is something I would constantly see come across Instagram so I started doing research on the brand and really became interested in the products. After reading through reviews and product ingredients I had mad a decision on the product I thought would work for my skin type: The Earth Cleanser! The Earth cleanser exceeded my expectations completely! I love the unique, yet fitting color, the ingredients are definitely catered to acne prone skin and let’s talk about the fabulous sent! The sent is so refreshing and crispy it’s unbelievable. It’s a minty eucalyptus scent that leaves you face feeling fresh , clean & clear of all impurities! I have only been using this product for 1 week and I had a few small bumps around one side of my chin area and after the 1st use they were gone! I was sold after that! I can NOT wait to try some other products that they have to offer! My opinion is that Rosen is definitely a product to try and I would recommend it. Price point: Reasonable . The Earth Cleanser was priced at 18 dollars before shipping cost. This product is also sold in Nordstroms. *Use code: Jamei20 to save at check out!* Disclaimer: Depending on skin type and the severity of your skin issues, products and results will vary. Do the proper research on the ingredients and find which of their products will possible work for you. The site even have a user friendly skin test you can take and will recommend the right product that may fit best for you based on the information you provided in case you are sure where to start. Also be sure to follow up after use of any of their products with your regular routine for moisture that works best for you. Hope my review helps you! *Always remember*- no matter what skin issues you are facing you will get through it and just know you are beautiful regardless!
