Atolla Skin Care Subscription – Should We Review It?


Atolla is a new monthly skin care subscription that provides you with a personalized serum:

Atolla applies the scientific method to skincare. We’ve developed a proprietary system to help you quantifiably measure what’s going on with your skin, and we use that knowledge to develop your personalized serum.

The serum we create combats your specific skin issues and concerns and fits your environment, lifestyle, and routine. As your skin changes over time, your serum will also adapt. Our machine-learning algorithm recognizes patterns in your skin, and we use this information to always provide you with the best solution.

Your first month is $65 and includes the Initial Skin Health Kit. After that one time initial charge, your serum will be $45 per month. How it works:


Order the initial Skin Health Kit to measure your skin’s oil, moisture, and pH levels. There’s nothing to send back


After doing the kit, instantly learn how healthy your skin measurements are and what ingredients you should be using.


Receive a personalized serum, with ingredients precisely combined to be the most effective for your skin.

Each month, you retake the test and your serum is updated based on the results.

The Box: Atolla

The Cost: $45 per month Your first month is $65 and includes the Initial Skin Health Kit

  1. Atolla is a great company for personalized skincare. Their tests are very thorough and they reply really quickly to questions. They clearly care about their customers and know their stuff. I definitely recommend them!

  2. I just started Atolla and am looking forward to seeing how I like it. The price is right if it’s a serum that’s right for my skin. In theory, I will be able to cut out three products to this one serum. If you do review, you should use it for 3-5 months first as skin care products don’t work overnight.

  3. Yes I would love to see reviews on this. They are cirrently running a FB campaign. I am over 50 and have tried many serums – nothing I have bought a second time yet.

  4. I’d be interested in seeing what a reviewer or 3 think about this system.

  5. Yes please

  6. Yes please. I hope they do an entire customized regimen that includes a variety of products and not just a serum.

  7. I’d be interested in a review if it also listed the ingredients.. If they just give a bottle and not knowing what’s even in it, that would seem fishy.. I always read the ingredient list of any product.

  8. I’ll pass, mostly because I don’t believe that it’s really customized. I mean, $50 is overpriced for a pre-mixed gimmick, but too under-priced for something that someone actually sat down to custom blend for me.

    • Ditto. It’s too pricey to junp on with no history. I would be willing to try it for free to see if it works and then report on it before I sign up to spend that much ever month.

  9. one facial serum every month. The container must be tiny.

    • If you look at the first picture, there are tiny tubes next to the bigger bottle. I bet the tubes are what subscribers will receive.

      • I found the photo confusing…the small tubes come with the first shipment skin testing kit and are samples of the different serum bases to try before the serum is made. They suggest which base is right for each person, but you can choose among the offerings. After testing, then the serum is made and sent in a separate shipment. It comes in the larger bottle. I found the FAQs very helpful.

      • The small tubes next to the bottom are preference samples that come with your first skin analysis. You can try the 4 different bases and see which one you like best (or which one absorbs the best). There’s Water base, Aloe base, Light oil, and Heavy Oil. After you finish your first test and order your serum, you receive the large bottom in the photo every month 🙂

  10. Yes, but would prefer if you would have two different MSA reviewers so we can see just how customized it really is.

    • Great idea!!

    • Excellent idea! Yes, please review and have at least 2 people try it, preferably with different skin types or ages and for at least 2 months to see if either shows any improvement.

    • I second this! This is a great idea!

  11. I love this idea and would appreciate a review…and a coupon 😉

  12. yes! As an esthetician, I’m very interested The concept is very good idea esp since the skin type analogy is really outdated iMO so this will give a better sense of how products will be uniquely adapted to your needs which can be a little hard for most people to even know in the first place

    • I like the concept too but tbh, I’m skeptical of whether “customized” beauty products are truly customized. Like I know Curology for example is very good as I’ve used it before (until finding out that Sunday Riley works better for me), but as far as I can tell it’s not so much personalized as much as they just send you one of a couple on-hand blends depending on your profile. If this new company truly blends together a unique cocktail and percentage of ingredients for each customer then that’s definitely intriguing, but yeah, I’m skeptical of it. But that skepticism is why I’d like to see it reviewed 🙂

  13. Nope, next.

    I don’t buy into this…this is all the rage from hair care to supplements.

  14. Sounds a little gimmicky, but I’d be interested in seeing it reviewed to see if there is actually anything to it.

  15. Neat idea, but I don’t buy it.

    • “There’s one born every minute…”

      Wonder who told them that “Atolla” was a good idea for a name. Sounds too much like ayatollah.

      • Probably named for the island vibes of atoll, rather than for those of us old enough to remember Ayatollah Khomeini.

      • That’s funny. My first thought was Ayatollah as well! I must one of older ones.
