PRODUCTS I 🖤 AND BELIEVE IN : Curology Custom Superbottle

A Curology custom superbottle is made for MY own wrinkles, dullness, dark spots and skin texture! I first discovered this innovative brand 2+ years ago when I was introduced to them by an industry colleague. I did some ad and social copywriting for them for a few months. And while the project work wrapped up, my affinity for the brand and the unique product they make lasted to this day.

Here’s the gist: Everyone (and I mean everyone!) needs some form of Vitamin A (ie Retinol, Retin-A, Tretinoin, Retinoic Acid or a Retinoid) in their skincare regimen. But not everyone has a dermatologist to write them a Rx for the more potent treatments. Not anymore! Curology solved that issue with a team of dermatologists you have access to online thru their website You upload pictures of your face at various angles, fill out a quick questionnaire, and in a day or so, they prescribe a Rx-strength treatment for you!


My very own custom Retin-A (Tretinoin) 



Thank you Phuong!

Every month, a fresh custom bottle arrives in the mail just as I’m running out. Curology [IG: @curology] changed the whole skincare game and I haven’t gone a single night in two years without applying my custom Retin-A treatment. I‘m so grateful to Curology and Phuong, my very own dermatologist, whose been right by my side for 2 years, always ready to strengthen or weaken my treatment based on my skin’s reaction and state of wellbeing.

Check them out!
