About For Hers
Waiting urgently in the doctors office for a 5-minute chat with a doctor has never made sense to me, and yet, I’ve been there more than once.
I have a long list of to-dos, and there isn’t space for a 1 to 2-hour journey for an appointment that could have been a phone call—or better yet, a few clicks on my keyboard.
For Hers is on a mission to make female-focused, medical-grade products more accessible. This telemedicine site connects women to licensed medical professionals to help them get a diagnosis—quick.
Treating common needs like hair thinning, birth control, and UTIs, if you’re given a prescription, For Hers will ship it right to your home. Why is accessible women-focused care so important right now?
This study emphasizes precisely why, illustrating women’s collective need to resolve specific issues via licensed professionals in the medical field so they can get on with living life.
With such wide ranging treatments available online, it’s no wonder For Hers has been featured by Forbes, The New York Times, and Business Insider. And, women have clearly taken notice. The company boasts more than 165k followers across Instagram and Facebook.
If you’re considering checking out this brand’s acne treatments, hair solutions, or birth control pills, this For Hers review can help.
In what’s to come, I’ll take an in-depth look at the company, its treatments, customer ratings, promotions, and more to help you decide if For Hers is truly For You.
Overview of For Hers
Ever hear of For Hims? For Hers is actually its sister brand. Offering targeted products through these direct-to-consumer digital health lines, the pair was founded by Andrew Dudum, a serial entrepreneur, in 2017.
Dudum knew how inaccessible certain healthcare products were for the average person, whether that be because of stigma or funds, so he sought to shake up the industry. Personally, I’m all for digital healthcare. Turning agonizing office waits into quick and painless chats, I’ve experienced the difference accessible care can be.
The female-focused collection of Hers products seeks to aid women—and in all areas of their mind and body too. Its products cost up to 80% less than what is currently offered at most local pharmacies. And my favorite part? Though the company is based in San Fransisco, CA, everything is available from the comfort of your home.
The line is led by a board of medical advisors, all of which are women. Their mission: “As women who value our health, we’re here to do what we do best – roll up our sleeves to get it done right.”
In addition to its products and medical services, Hers offers a blog that covers information about treatments, sexual health and pleasure, and mental health. This research-based blog aims to educate women and make certain topics less taboo. That’s something I think we need more of in this world.
Feel like you know the brand a little better? Up next in this For Hers review, I’ll cover the highlights:
- Wide range of wellness products that are tailored to women’s bodies and needs
- Telehealth service that lets you access healthcare privately and discreetly, from the comfort of your own home
- Access prescriptions for its products directly through the website
- Informative blog that aims to educate women, as well as remove the stigma around certain topics
- Products are more affordable than in stores
- Subscription to save
- Free US shipping
- Money-back guarantee between 60-90 days with full returns available
For Hers puts women first. Period. Through its carefully curated line, it offers targeted treatments tailored to the female body and its needs. You won’t be swimming through a sea of PE and ED pills here, though, if your partner needs some, send him over to For Hims.
Whether you’re focused on your hair, skin, mental health, sex, or a number of other wellness areas, the brand likely has something for you. Shuffling through the line, I came to love that some of its products are even customized to your unique needs.
For example, if you’re interested in medical-grade skincare, you’ll have to take the For Hers skincare routine quiz and virtually meet with a healthcare professional before receiving a custom acne treatment. I’m all for this personal and incredibly thorough approach, it means I’m receiving the care I uniquely need.
What’s next, you ask? Oh, just a journey through some of its most popular products. From For Hers medication to shampoo, and treatments to cleansers, your new must-have item might be waiting just ahead.
For Hers Review
I like being in control of my health and my body. Digital healthcare does that for me. No longer at the whim of over-scheduled doctors, whether you are looking for For Hers birth control, acne treatment, condoms, or shampoo, this brand has you covered.
I should note though, that in some cases, you might need to virtually meet with one of its licensed medical professionals before you can order what you need. An easy video call, this helps Hers doctors better diagnose your condition.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the company’s prescription and non-prescription bestsellers.
For Hers Customized Rx Acne Cream Review
Acne isn’t going to hold me back, but I can’t help but wish it gone when it comes knocking.
If breakouts, uneven texture, clogged pores, fine lines, and other common skin concerns have you down, and nothing seems to be working, it may be time to switch to something more personal. The For Hers Customized Rx Acne Cream is.
While its personalized to your needs, this product isn’t for everyone and is available by prescription only. To get started, complete the quiz online and let Hers know your health goals (clearing clogged pores, boosting firmness, etc.), as well as the areas of your body you struggle with acne (face, back, chest, or other).
After a few more questions about your skin, you’ll be matched with a healthcare professional who will determine whether or not you need a prescription.
If you’re prescribed the Customized Rx Acne Cream, the brand will then mix up your own unique blend. It’ll contain up to five potent ingredients: tretinoin, clindamycin, azelaic acid, zinc pyrithione, and/or niacinamide. What do each of these do? I’ll walk you through the list below.
According to this study, tretinoin is useful for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and for improving the health of sun-damaged skin by reducing the appearance of dark spots.
Similarly, clindamycin is often used in treating bacterial infections and it functions by inhibiting the growth of bacteria which is explored in this article.
Azelaic acid is naturally forming and is beneficial in reducing the formation of blackheads and pimples, which is further explored in the journal, Drug Evaluation.
The use of zinc pyrithione, as discussed in this text, has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties which further help the skin in eliminating blemishes.
Finally, niacinamide is discussed in this paper as a product that encourages the production of keratin which is crucial in maintaining skin health, as well as providing a barrier on the skin which reduces sun damage, redness, and pores.
I’ve certainly seen some of these ingredients in top skincare products before, and appreciate that they each have a different purpose—such as removing old skin cells, preventing future breakouts, or unclogging pores. Because they’re potent, you’ll only get what you uniquely need.
Something else I love? Your Customized Rx Acne Cream will always be free of fragrances, dyes, and parabens. Plus, it’ll arrive in a vessel that features an antimicrobial pump that disperses the correct amount of product without letting bacteria back into it.
When prescribed, your matched healthcare professional will give you instructions and your For Hers skincare routine will ship directly to your door.
Though the brand does not advertise how much this cream usually costs, new customers can get it for $5 for their first few months. Deal of the year? I’d say so.
For Hers Acne Treatment Review
In my search for the perfect skincare routine, the most popular option I’ve come across is the three-step system. It’s not hard to see why either, considering it’s a manageable amount of steps and it usually works. Sometimes, simple is best.
The For Hers Acne Treatment is designed to heal adult acne. Your new skincare regimen will include three products when you purchase this system:
- Deep Sea Cleanser (4 fl oz)
- Custom Acne Cream
- Tidal Wave Moisturizer (1 fl oz)
Though I’ve already taken a look at the Custom Acne Cream, the other two products are impressive, too. Deep Sea Cleanser does more than wash your skin. This gentle and hydrating cleanser features ingredients like rosehip seed and red seaweed extract to provide nourishment and prep your skin for your prescription cream.
Meanwhile, the Tidal Wave Moisturizer is made with hyaluronic acid and squalene. It locks in hydration and protects your skin’s natural barrier. Also, can I just pause to appreciate these refreshing names?
This routine uses the fingerprint formula method to create a personalized acne cream that is unique to you. Just like if you were to only get the custom cream, you’ll have to answer questions about your skin type and goals before meeting with a healthcare professional to acquire a prescription.
The Acne Treatment is available for $10/month for new customers. But, I couldn’t find out how much it costs after your first two months—the brand is a little sparse on this detail.
For Hers Anti-Aging Cream Review
Let’s face it, we’re all trying to fight the look of aging skin— your sister, me, and him too. But this one is all for you. The For Hers Anti-Aging Cream is a personalized prescription product that helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Plus, this product will help firm up loose skin, improve uneven textures, and aid in the cell turnover process. It has just what I’m looking for and I love that my cream will be made just for me.
Using well-known and clinically proven ingredients like tretinoin (a vitamin A derivative) and squalene, let’s take a look and what each of these power players can do for your skin.
Squalene, as seen in this study, mimics the skin’s natural oils and performs as a natural antioxidant as well as displaying properties encouraging protection from carcinogens.
Like some of the brand’s other products, you’ll need to acquire a prescription through the site to order the Anti-Aging Cream. Start by taking the For Hers online anti-aging quiz so the company knows how to customize your cream.
Though it fights signs of aging, people in their 20s and 30s can use this product as a preventative measure. You can purchase it at an intro price of $10 a month, but the company does not specify how much it will cost after that time.
For Hers Rapid Repair Hair Mask Review
When I think about JLo, I don’t just see her talent. I gawk at her lush, enviable hair. That’s why For Hers teamed up with JLo to develop the Rapid Repair Hair Mask that gives you salon-worthy results at home.
This JLo-approved product repairs damaged hair without parabens, phthalates, sulfates, or animal byproducts. Instead, it contains some great hair-loving ingredients:
Jojoba Seed Oil: According to this study, jojoba seed oil plays a role in moisturizing the scalp due to being rich in vitamins that nourish the hair and strengthen it to minimize hair loss.
Keratin: Smooths the cells that overlap to form hair which results in smoother and healthier looking hair according to this journal article.
Coconut Oil: Plays a role in moisturizing and sealing hair to reduce dry scalp and resulting dandruff, as explained in this study.
Cupuaçu Butter: In this study, cupuaçu butter is said to act as an emollient, helping in water retention and infusing the hair with moisture to decrease the appearance of brittle hair.
Shea Butter: One study explains that this product contains essential fatty acids that are responsible for adding moisture and shine to hair.
Murumuru Seed Butter: This ingredient is similar to cupuacu butter, contains a high level of fatty acid which penetrates the hair and aids in better moisture retention as well as sealing of the cuticle.
It features a light “Coastal California” scent that embodies the ocean with notes of driftwood, sea salt, and wood sage. Excuse me while I dream of my shower-turned-beachy spa every time I treat my hair.
Best used twice weekly for up to five minutes at a time, the Rapid Repair Hair Mask leaves your hair looking smooth, hydrated, and shiny. Get it for $22 (8 oz).
For Hers Minoxidil Solution Review
Hair loss isn’t something that only men experience. Although it isn’t as common or widely discussed, I know that many women suffer from it too. The For Hers Minoxidil Solution is here to help.
How does it work? By penetrating the scalp to activate hair follicles and extending the life of each strand. I read that you should start seeing results in 3-6 months and that the Minoxidil Solution is best used twice daily.
Use the dropper to apply 1 ml directly to your scalp anywhere you are experiencing hair loss. When regrowth begins, be sure to continue using the product, otherwise, improvement might stop.
For a one-time purchase, you can get it for $45. Your order will include enough of the solution for three months, which is three 2 fl oz bottles. $15/bottle? That’s a really great deal.
For Hers Shampoo Review
Considering Minoxidil? I think you may want to check out the For Hers Shampoo too. If you’re plagued by a constantly clogged shower drain, a floor that’s covered in strands after each brushing, and leaving a trail of locks in your wake—it’s time turn your attention to your shampoo and do something different.
This product cleanses your scalp while focusing on removing excess sebum. The result? Well, a cleaner scalp makes hair appear more voluminous. And, thanks to the lack of sebum, you’ll have fewer clogged follicles, meaning more growth and less shedding. It’s simple science for people like me who don’t care for a fussy routine.
The Shampoo should replace whatever product you’re using now and should be used on a regular basis. After scrubbing, make sure to let the product sink in for a minute before rinsing.
For a one-time purchase, customers can get two 6.4 fl oz bottles of this For Hers thickening shampoo for $38.
For Hers Shampoo and Conditioner Review
Ever used shampoo without conditioner? Yeah, I wasn’t a fan of totally dried-out strands either. Start your hair routine off right with the For Hers Shampoo and Conditioner.
Designed for people who shed more than usual, this duo features saw palmetto. Sounds interesting, but this ingredient is proven to rid the scalp of breakage-causing buildup and oils.
Saw palmetto, according to this study, aids in preventing hair loss by reducing the conversion of testosterone in the body into a more potent form which results in loss of hair.
Plus, it’ll leave you with hair that feels soft, nourished, and strong. Use the shampoo and conditioner as you normally would, but leave the shampoo on for an extra minute before rinsing.
I should note here though, that the Shampoo and Conditioner duo is only available through a subscription. Each month, you’ll receive a 6.4 fl oz bottle of each product, for a total of $33.
For Hers Complete Hair Kit Review
If there’s one thing I love more than simplicity, it’s convenient bundles. If you’re just starting on your journey to longer and stronger hair, test out what the brand has to offer with the For Hers Complete Hair Kit.
Formulated for those who experience too much shedding, and whose hair is in need of some TLC, this bundle includes:
- 1x Biotin Builder (30 gummies)
- 1x Hair Regrowth Treatment (2 fl oz)
- 1x Triple Threat Shampoo (6.4 fl oz)
- 1x Triple Threat Conditioner (6.4 fl oz)
The For Hers minoxidil treatment works to topically treat hair loss. Meanwhile, the Biotin Builder supplement ensures your body is getting the nutrients it needs for optimal growth.
Together, the shampoo and conditioner remove excess sebum and soothe each strand. These two products feature hair-loving and oil-fighting ingredients like biotin, salicylic acid, and saw palmetto, as well as pumpkin seed, argan, and coconut oils.
Biotin has been shown to help regrow hair and helps improve its shine and strength, according to this study.
According to this journal, salicylic acid reduces the presence of sebum build up and eliminates the formation of dandruff with continued use.
Pumpkin seed contains a sterol that blocks the enzymes in which hormones in the scalp cause hair loss, according to this experiment.
I read that customers typically see results after three months of consistent use. Add this For Hers hair kit to your routine for $55.
For Hers Salon Strength System Review
My hair needs a little work. After bleaching, stress, and a not so balanced diet, it’s safe to say I need all the help I can get. Looking for a complete hair transformation too? Look no further than the For Hers Salon Strength System.
Featuring seven of the brand’s best-selling products, your body will be prepped for optimal hair growth, inside and out. You’ll receive:
- 1x Minoxidil Solution (2 fl oz)
- 1x Shampoo (6.4 fl oz)
- 1x Conditioner (6.4 fl oz)
- 1x Rapid Repair Hair Mask (8 oz)
- 1x Detox Scalp Scrub (8 oz)
- 1x Collagen Powder (10.5 oz)
- 1x Build Biotin multivitamin (30 gummies)
I was jazzed to find that this bundle is JLo-approved too. In fact, she worked with the brand to develop the Rapid Repair Hair Mask and the Detox Scalp Scrub. Very cool, Jen.
What’s the skinny on the set? Products like collagen and biotin supplements should be consumed daily, and the minoxidil treatment should be used twice per day. Meanwhile, the shampoo and conditioner can be incorporated into your existing hair wash routine, whether that be daily or a couple of times a week.
On the other hand, the Rapid Repair Hair Mask and the Detox Scalp Scrub can be used twice each week. These products work to promote healthy and longer hair by removing buildup and nourishing strands.

For Hers Reviews: What Do Customers Think?
I think that For Hers’ products, as well as its mission to make healthcare for women more accessible, seem promising. But, what I really want to know is: What do customers think?
For this part of my For Hers review, I turned to the web to find out. Below, you’ll find testimonials sourced from the company’s website, Reddit, and Influenster. But, I’ll be honest here—comments on the brand were exceptionally rare.
Digging through the brand’s website, I realized that not all of For Hers’s products can be rated. You’ll find a few of the ones that can below. Here’s how they stack up:
- Minoxidil: an average score of 4/5 stars from 39 ratings
- Multivitamin Gummies: an average score of 5/5 stars from 46 ratings
- Shampoo: an average score of 4.5/5 stars from 33 ratings
- All NaturalCondoms: an average score of 5/5 stars from 46 ratings
- Glide Aloe VeraLubricant: an average score of 5/5 stars from 43 ratings
- Hers UT: an average score of 4.5/5 stars from 57 ratings
- Miconazole for Yeast Infections: an average score of 5/5 stars from 67 ratings
- Collagen Peptide Powder: an average score of 4.5/5 stars from 58 ratings
I chose to take a closer look at the Collagen Peptide Powder because it’s one of the brand’s most-reviewed products. Overall, customers praise the clean ingredients, how well the flavor mixes into a beverage, and the improvements they see in their skin and nails.
One woman reports that it serves as a good recovery supplement post-workout: “I have been using it as a supplement for about two weeks now and it seems to be doing a good job of helping muscle recovery after a work-out and the joint pain that I usually feel after working out seems to have been reduced quite significantly.”
Meanwhile, another user writes that For Hers’s supplement is the only collagen powder that has given her results. She continues, “I feel like my skin is more plump and smooth, which is amazing! My skin is really dry and prone to wrinkles and this seems to be working great for me. I’m impressed!”
Because the comments on the company’s website were so positive, I turned to other sources to get a more well-rounded picture. On Influenster, some of its products have garnered a handful of ratings.
I discovered that the most discussed products are the Complete Hair Kit and the Latisse solution. The former bundle earned 4.4/5 stars from 11 ratings and the latter treatment earned 4.7/5 stars from 9.
On the lash treatment, customers report significant results after a few months of consistent use. Take this woman’s experience: “I’ve been using this for 3-4 months now and I can REALLY see the difference. My lashes are much longer and a little fuller than they were. My husband noticed the difference too and he never notices things like that!”
Next, I turned to Reddit. Here, shoppers have discussed the For Hers’s personalized acne treatment minoxidil. Of her custom formula, one Redditor writes, “I just started it a month ago and so far I really really like it.”
Overall, For Hers reviews were pretty sparse, but negative comments were even more so. Which is, of course, a good sign. I did find that some users struggled to blend the collagen powder into their beverages without clumps, but other than that, no cons really came up.
I probably don’t need to tell you that the positive ratings far outweigh the negative ones, but they do, so I was happy about that. I hope that as the For Hers grows, more customers share their honest experiences.
Is For Hers Worth It?
Based on my research for this For Hers review, I think that the brand’s best-selling products are definitely worth it. I particularly love that the brand is working to make healthcare for women more accessible.
Plus, the company educates women on topics that are often considered taboo. The For Hers meaning and mission of working to remove the stigma around female-focused healthcare is one that I can get behind.
In For Hers acne reviews, shoppers report transformative results thanks to the customization. I was happy to learn that its hair products perform well, too.
What else caught my attention? That the service also offers For Hers primary care where you can receive non-urgent medical care from the comfort of your home. What’s more, the brand will ship your prescription directly to you.
With all things considered, I think this telehealth service and its products are worth trying out.
For Hers Promotions & Discounts
While doing the digging for this For Hers review, I discovered that the brand is running an awesome promotion. Right now, you can get two months of the Clear Skin System for just $10 per month, or two months of just the treatment for $5.
Offering a free quiz, a free consultation, and free shipping, getting the help you need now is just a few clicks away.
