Curology's cleanser & moisturizer sets

In addition to your custom formula, Curology offers the cleanser & moisturizer set to help balance out your skincare routine. This set includes our cleanser and your choice of moisturizer. This set can be added on to your Curology box for an additional $20 per shipment (which breaks down to $10/month). 

What is in the cleanser & moisturizer set? 

The cleanser by Curology simply cleans your skin and contains nothing extra. Made for all skin types, and especially loved by those with sensitive skin, the cleanser is gentle and non-stripping, with no scents or irritants.  In addition to the cleanser, the set contains one of our two moisturizer options (you choose which you prefer!).

The moisturizer by Curology is a cool, layerable moisturizer for normal to oily skin. Relax and let your skin soak up its light, gel texture—like putting a cloud on your face, some say. It’s non-clogging, breathable, and buildable, so use as much as you like!

The rich moisturizer by Curology is a creamy, deeply hydrating moisturizer for dry or aging skin. Our dermatologists formulated this creamy moisturizer to work twice as hard: first, hydrating your skin, then keeping that moisture locked in. Keep your skin soft and protected all day (or night) long with 6 hydrating ingredients, including hyaluronic acid and shea butter. 

All three products have been designed by in-house dermatologists to be non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, dye-free, paraben-free, and hypoallergenic—because we wanted to be sure you can use these every day, no matter what your skin’s individual quirks may be. Our dermatologists designed them to pair perfectly with your custom formula so you can get everything you need for happy, hydrated skin in one simple box.

Yes! We designed the cleanser, the moisturizer, and rich moisturizer to contain everything you need, and nothing extra—which means they won’t clog pores, and will work alongside your custom formula!

What are the ingredients?

Do the cleanser and moisturizer need to be used daily? Morning and night?

Ideally, you should cleanse your skin once in the morning and once again before bed! You can use either water or a non-clogging cleanser. The Curology cleanser is especially gentle, so you can use it twice a day with no fear of drying your skin. The amount of moisturizer you need varies, depending on your skin type and what other products you’re using. If your skin ever feels dry, we recommend using a moisturizer once or twice daily. If you have any other questions on how to best apply your cleanser and moisturizer, make sure you reach out to your medical provider for further assistance!

What if my Curology provider recommended an antimicrobial cleanser or soap?

Everyone’s skin is different, so it’s always best to follow your dermatology provider’s instruction! If your provider suggests using an antimicrobial cleanser or soap for some parts of your routine, then use the Curology cleanser only when you aren’t using the antimicrobial cleanser. No need to double up on cleansing! And as always, feel free to ask your provider if you have any questions. Our cleanser does not contain salicylic acid. Find the full list in our article on ingredients.

Can I receive both moisturizers? 

New members signing up to include the cleanser & moisturizer set in their box will get to choose either the moisturizer or the rich moisturizer (not both—you only need one!). You can switch between the two whenever you want. If you’re already a subscriber, you can swap the moisturizer for the rich moisturizer if you’d like. If you love your current moisturizer, there’s no need to switch! 

How are the rich moisturizer and current moisturizer different? How do I know which moisturizer to choose? 

Both are great moisturizers designed by dermatologists to be hydrating and non-clogging. 

The main differences between the rich moisturizer and moisturizer are the ingredients and the texture. While both moisturizers contain hyaluronic acid and glycerin, the rich moisturizer packs in some added hydration for aging or dry skin with a total of 6 moisturizing ingredients:

  1. Hyaluronic acid adds moisture to your skin by binding water from the environment. Helps plump and hydrate skin, and may help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
  2. Shea butter fills in tiny cracks in the skin, making your skin feel soft (and giving the rich moisturizer its creamy texture).
  3. Aloe soothes, deeply moisturizes, and creates that glides-on-smooth feeling.
  4. Glycerin hydrates, softens, and protects skin.
  5. Squalane, a natural plant-based antioxidant, fights free radicals that can cause skin aging 
  6. Allantoin improves the skin’s moisture retention. Known for its soothing and anti-irritating properties, allantoin helps to heal wounds and stimulates the growth of healthy tissues. Check out the key ingredients if you’re interested in learning more. 

The moisturizer has a cloud-like, gel texture designed for those who prefer a cool, lightweight feel. The rich moisturizer has a thicker, creamier texture, so those with dry or aging skin may tend to prefer the rich moisturizer, while those with normal or oily skin may prefer the moisturizer.

No! Curology is 100% cruelty-free and not tested on animals.

Are the cleanser and moisturizer suitable for all genders?

Yes! The cleanser and moisturizer are formulated to work for all skin, regardless of gender.
