I started Curology on October 20, 2019 and filmed this update 1 year later on October 17, 2020. I used Curology with 0.01% tretinoin strength every 3rd night for the first week, every other night for the second week, and every night weeks 3 through 6. For the first 2 weeks I also stopped my morning skin care routine except for moisturizer and sunscreen. At week 3, I started resuming serums/acids/etc in my skin care routine. Around April 1, 2020, my provider increased my tretinoin strength to 0.02%. To acclimate to the new strength, I applied my Curology every 3rd night, moisturizers-only the next night, and glycolic serum the next night. After 6 weeks, I added 1 night to that cycle (around June 2020), and have continued with 3 nights per week from June through now, October 2020. My skin is tolerating it well. I am taking it slowly to avoid irritation/flaking skin. I probably won’t move up to more than 3 nights per week until at least after the new year.

I dropped Curology after 6 months - they wouldn’t up the Tretinoin from .0009%. Seeing a brick & mortar local dermatologist now who prescribed me .025% and now I’m actually seeing results with both wrinkles & hyperpigmentation.
I get something that’s pretty much the same but it’s a different company, I have been using it for 3 months now, got my first month half price or free, can’t really remember, I have seen a wee bit difference, I can’t wait to see it in a years time. I’ve not been using it for the past week as I’m going through radiotherapy, I have cancer in my neck area and I’m a bit scared to use it while I’m going through treatment incase it affects my skin.
This is so cool! You have some great results. I started my teen son on Curology over a year ago (he had bad eczema and acne issues). He still deals with dryness on his face but he’s got the acne under control now thanks for Curology. One of these days I’m going to start myself on tretinoin but I’m too chicken so I haven’t yet. ? I don’t know what I think will happen but I just haven’t. Your video makes me feel like I shouldn’t be so scared.
Your skin looks radiant and you look beautiful. Such a wonderful person! ❤
Happy bday!!!! U inspired me to log in and look at my progress photos. I knew my acne had improved but I still don’t leave the house without foundation/concealer. I did not realize how much my skin had improved ? I’d give anything to go back in time and start taking care of my skin in my early 20’s bc it’s made an enormous difference ??????

Your skin looks glowy
Do u leave this on your face ?
do you apply morning and night?
Positive result! (Btw, check the spelling of Tretinoin in your description box) If you encounter breakouts later, you can ask your dermatologist for a different brand of Retin A. Happy for you
I would like to see more updates. The few black people that I've seen use this have not had great turn outs. So I wanna really see what happens to your skin.

I actually just started and am on 0.005. I just started a week ago and so far so good. I know my strength is super low but if all says fine I will see about going stronger in a few weeks. I am getting it from Curology. Thanks for the great videos! I am finding them informative and helpful.
We’re you using Differin beforehand?
