Things You Should Know Before Purchasing Your DR’s Secret Products

Things You Should Know Before Purchasing DR's Secret.

Hello peeps! Ever since I blog about my DR’s Secret Skincare review,  I got more enquiries about the skin buddy/ skin consultant service. And the more DMs and messages I received, the more  I  realise there is a need to address a few very important concepts about DR’s Secret. 

DR’s Secret is a revolutionary skincare brand that is highly customisable through their very unique support system — DR’s Secret Skin Buddy. The products are one of the few in the skincare market that utilises game-changing technology that goes into the deeper skin layers and rectifies your skin issues. (without thinning your skin!)

People admire our products, thinking these are some “magic skincare products” thanks to the Before & After photos circulating online. While the results are indeed amazing, this could give off the idea that DR’s Secret can transform your skin overnight. Sorry. That’s not how it is.


We don’t just sell the products. Neither do we sell a miracle. What we sell is a service that guides you throughout your skincare journey just so we can gradually achieve your ideal skin through a holistic approach that is sustainable.


This includes using products that contain beneficial ingredients and cultivating the correct skincare habits. I really like this Skin Buddy system because it saves up my precious time (and money). At last, we can finally cut down the guesswork. A skin buddy would measure your progress and recommend products that are aligned with your skin goals. This is some high-level, bespoke skincare service that we don’t even get from luxury skincare brands!

Here are the 8 things you need to know before purchasing your very first set of DR’s Secret product. In my humble opinion, understanding these few important points will definitely cut down the disappointment, unhappiness or regretful foundation free journey with DR’s Secret.

  1. Beautiful Skin Doesn’t Happen Overnight.

    I can’t stress this enough. When it comes to skincare, patience is a virtue. While there might be skin buddies who tell you that results kick in within 1 week, take it with a pinch of salt because every skin is different. Our genetic influences, ageing, health issues, environmental assaults (smoking, 2nd-hand smoke etc.), lifestyle choices, nutrition intakes, and using skincare products that are not beneficial to your skin condition all play a part in what is happening on our skin now. It takes time to see the difference, and maintaining the result will require ongoing use.

  2. You Might Experience Skin Purging with DR’s Secret.
    DR’s Secret is one of the few skincare products with the technology that can go into the deeper layers of our skin, rectify the issue, and slowly build up our skin barriers again. During the process of rectifying and conditioning our damaged skin barriers, some may experience purging. Typically, users with “Internal Oily, External Dry” or “Internal Dry, External Oily” would likely see different levels of purging, depending on their skin condition. However, don’t get too worried about the purging because this is where your skin buddy comes in to get you back on the right track!

  3. It is Better To Kickstart Your Skin Journey With a Skin Consultant (Skin Buddy).
    A skin buddy will make sure the products are working for you by recommending and tweaking your DR’s Secret regime, share tips on how to effectively exfoliate using the Miraglo cloth etc. These tips are essential if you want to see the result. The products aren’t cheap so use them the way you’re supposed to. Now you know you should contact a skin buddy (IG DM me!) before purchasing the product on the internet. And she’ll let you know how to purchase the products with welcome promotion & other perks too! ; )

  4. Don’t lose the only chance to select your skin buddy.
    DR’s Secret only sells their products on its official website and through its skin buddies. The only difference between these two channels is the ability to select your skin buddy. If you purchase the products on the official website, your skin buddy service will be upon request and will be randomly assigned. There is no guarantee if your assigned buddy is a responsible person that will take care of your skin throughout. You will not be able to change your buddy once you are being randomly assigned one. So don’t lose the chance to take full control of your buddy selection, contact the buddy of your choice directly before purchasing.

  5. Don’t give out your ID unless you are 100% sure to engage that person to be your buddy.
    As I have always mentioned in my IG stories, you have to validate your buddy relationship using the DR’s Secret mobile app. Once this is completed, you will not be able to change your skin buddy at all as there is a small amount of commission involved when you purchase the products. This helps motivates the skin buddy, and you get the guidance and routine formulas from the buddy. This is why you need to be 100% sure that you are comfortable with your buddy in the first place before signing up.

  6. Sign Up the Membership Yourself.
    Be extra careful with those who told you that you need to “fill in your ID to sign up so that you can play around with the points.” Because most of the time, these are the naughty ones that try to secure or validate you as their buddy before you are even sure about engaging them. Don’t come to me and ask for advice after signing up with other buddy or asking for a routine formula because this is beyond my capacity to help. Always, ALWAYS do the sign up yourself. Your buddy will provide you his/her unique member code to validate your buddy relationship.

  7. Do Not Buy DS Products from non-official channels.
    By this, I mean Lazada or Carousell. DR’s Secret only sells their products on its official website and through its skin buddies. Since 2020, DR’s Secret has tightened its regulations on distribution channels and is taking a stand by actively clamping down sellers who slash the price on Lazada and Carousell. Even if the reviews on Lazada or Carousell suggests that the products are authentic, we cannot guarantee if the seller will be taking care of your skin. So why risk it?

  8. Find a Skin Buddy that You are Comfortable With.
    Find that someone you can instantly “click” with because this person is going to be your personal skin advisor and you’ll be texting or even meeting her as you embark on your foundation free journey. More importantly, the routine formulas given out by every skin buddy are different. It all boils down to which trainer or director the buddies studied under. For myself and my team, we are trained by an experienced skin specialist hailed from Taiwan. Our team’s signature routine formulas are tried & tested by at least 70k satisfied customers, and we do not share the routine publicly because that’s what makes us different ; p 


By the way, I’ve officially become a Skin Buddy with DR’s Secret. If you would like to understand the promotion of the month, or If do not have one and would like to ensure you are doing your DR’s Secret skincare routine correctly, please reach out to me via IG direct message! 🙂
