When the PR company sent me a press release about Curology.com and then invited me to join for free it certainly sparked interest. The account exec said all I had to do was go to a special VIP link and fill out the blanks. Fait accompli. It’s available for everybody for $19.95 and comes with an online dermo consult who then prescribes Rx-strength skincare products for your skin type. You need to fill out a medical questionnaire that asks about any skincare concerns and problems you want fixed. Then you upload three or more facial photos from different angles with no makeup on so the dermo can check out your skin.
The brainchild of Dr. David Lortscher, a board-certified dermatologist and Curology founder and CEO says, “some people don’t realize that our skin can get dry, red or even change texture with the change in season. Typically, I recommend the use of gentler products in the winter. As we head into the colder months it’s especially important to make sure you are using the right, personalized products to give you your desired results. With Curology you can easily consult with your dermatologist and update your skin care routine based on these environmental changes.”
Think of it as having a personal dermatologist at your fingertips who is always available for support and consults. The jury’s out as until I try the products sent to me by Charlene Kakimoto, MD.

My skincare arrived in a couple of days and included a “specially formulated” medication to be applied morning and night that contains Vitamin C, Tretinoin and Niacinamide. There was also a tube of Aveeno eczema therapy, which was strange because I never mentioned or referred to this condition and a Cureology lip balm with SPF 30 which always comes in handy.
Stick with me as I test out the formula and my membership.
