As a hims subscriber, you can access these personally formulated, medically approved products at a fraction of the price without leaving your home.

What should I expect when I first start using these?

It is normal to see flaky and dry spots in the beginning as these treatments promote cell turnover (shedding that old skin). We recommend using a moisturizer after application of both products so to help with this.
