So whether you signed up for that trendy 30-day free trial or have been using Curology for years, let’s get you exited painlessly.

What Exactly is Curology?

Before we dive into cancellation, let me provide some key facts on what Curology is and does…

Curology is a subscription-based personalized skincare service that creates custom-blended skincare formulas to treat various skin conditions like acne, wrinkles and dark spots.

Here is an overview of how it works:

  • Complete an online skin assessment questionnaire

  • Upload photos of your skin for analysis

  • Get matched to a licensed dermatology provider

  • Medical provider prescribes a custom-blended formula made specifically for your skin

  • Formula mixes 3 active ingredients like tretinoin, azelaic acid, etc.

  • Receive your tailored formula + cleanser/moisturizer each month

  • Message your matched dermatology provider through the Curology app

And here is a snapshot of Curology’s subscription pricing:

PlanCost per Month
Custom Formula$29.95/mo
Add Cleanser+$10/mo
Add Moisturizer+$10/mo
Add Spot Treatment+$2.48/mo

Key Takeaways

  • Personalized anti-aging and acne skincare formulas
  • Bundled with cleansers and moisturizers
  • Prescribed and monitored by licensed dermatology providers
  • Monthly subscription, cancel anytime

Now that you know what Curology is all about, let’s look at why you might want to cancel your membership.

Top 3 Reasons to Cancel Curology

Before pulling the plug on Curology, ask yourself why you want to cancel in the first place. Here are the most common explanations I hear for wanting to end a Curology subscription:

1. Formula doesn’t improve your skin

This is the #1 reason people cancel Curology. You followed directions but your custom formula just isn’t getting your skin clear.

  • Acne staying the same or getting worse
  • Dark spots remaining even after months
  • Fine lines not visibly improving

If adjusting formulas with your provider still shows no results after 90 days, cancellation is reasonable.

2. Pricing no longer affordable

Even starting at just $29.95 per month, Curology isn’t cheap. With add-on items, you may be paying $50+ monthly.

The cost adds up quickly, especially if using multiple bottles per month. Very valid reason to find a cheaper skincare routine that fits your budget.

3. Want to switch services

New skincare subscription competitors are launching constantly. You may have discovered another service with better products, pricing, or treatment approach compared to Curology.

Reasonable to cancel Curology if you believe another “personalized skincare” service would work better for your needs.

In summary, the top 3 cancellation triggers are…

  • Poor formula results
  • Unaffordable pricing
  • Desire to switch services

If one of those applies to you, then canceling Curology could be the smart move.

Now let’s get into the step-by-step process!

Step 1: Log Into Your Curology Account

First things first, you need to log into your Curology account online:

  1. Go to the Curology homepage at
  2. Click your profile icon in the top right corner
  3. Enter your account email and password
  4. Hit ‘Log In’

Once logged in, you’ll see your name displayed confirming you have access.

Step 2: Access The Billing Page

With access confirmed, now navigate to your billing and subscription management portal:

  1. Select your profile image in the top right
  2. Choose “Payment” from the dropdown menu

This will load your billing history, membership details, payment methods and settings.

Open account menu and click Payment link

Step 3: Locate The “Manage Subscription” Section

In the Payment portal, scroll down until you see the “Manage Subscription” panel, usually near the page bottom.

Here you’ll find options to update payment methods, shipments, and plan.

To cancel, you need to click the “I Want To Cancel” button as shown.

Step 4: Pick Your Cancellation Reason

After clicking to cancel your Curology membership, you‘ll next need to explain why.

The page displays common cancellation reasons to select from, including:

  • Formula not working
  • Acne has cleared up
  • Found a better option
  • Product damaged in shipping
  • Too expensive
  • Want to take a break

Choose the primary reason prompting you to cancel so Curology understands why customers churn.

Be honest here so they can improve any shortcomings causing cancellations.

Step 5: Follow On-Screen Cancellation Prompts

Once you’ve picked your cancellation reason, you’ll have to navigate through several screens:

  • Confirming cancellation decision
  • Last chance discount offers
  • Feedback surveys

Stick to your choice if still wanting to cancel Curology. They will try hard to retain you as a customer, even extending special deals for price breaks.

If interested in an offer or pause instead of full cancellation, you have that option during this process flow. But if cancelling for good, decline any deals and follow the on-screen paths until final confirmation.

Here’s a preview of prompts you’ll encounter:

I know, kind of annoying. But hang in there!

Step 6: Confirm Cancellation

This is the last step – fully confirming cancellation of your Curology subscription.

On the final screen, select "Cancel Subscription":

  1. Choose ‘Cancel Subscription’ (do NOT just hit pause)
  2. Agree on the pop-up to confirm cancellation

Once you complete this last step, you‘ll receive an email confirmation that your Curology account and membership have officially been cancelled. Phew, freedom! 🙌

Here is the final cancellation confirmation screen for reference:

Troubleshooting Questions

To wrap up, let me provide answers to common troubleshooting questions around reactivating your membership down the road:

Can I restart my subscription later on?

Absolutely! If you change your mind, simply log back into your existing Curology account to restart your subscription anytime. You may need to fill out an updated skin assessment first before resuming formulas.

What happens to my formula/provider if I resubscribe?

Your same matched medical provider and custom formula will be waiting for you when you restart! You pick right up where you left off.

Will I lose any new customer promotions?

Unfortunately yes, you won’t be eligible for the 30 day free trial or other new member perks when resubscribing. But customer service may offer you special comeback deals!

I hope this clear, detailed walkthrough simplifies cancelling your Curology subscription for good. Just follow the step-by-step instructions with screenshots to smoothly exit out of the service.
