About RealSelf

You deserve the real story — no airbrushing, no editing. RealSelf delivers it.

At RealSelf, you'll discover the treatments, products, and clinicians that real people say live up to the promise of delivering effective cosmetic and wellness results. Since our founding in 2006, we've grown into a trusted resource for tens of millions around the world.

Insights and support from real people. RealSelf members share their treatment experiences and photos, along with doctor reviews, costs, and candid opinions on what's worth it (or not).

Answers from highly trained experts. Our doctor community has answered over a million questions from RealSelf members.


As stewards of our community, we live by values that align each of us with our members' interests and enable us to deliver on our mission: to bring confidence to every important health and beauty decision.

Customer Centered

Always strive to keep the customer top of mind in the work we do.

One Team

We before me.

Real Time

Work to be most effective in the shortest amount of time.


At RealSelf we believe in extending the life-changing power of confidence to people across the globe. To support that belief, we support and bring attention to global and local needs. For us, giving back is not something that happens just once a year. It’s at the core of who we are.

Global Access to Medical Care

We want to make a real impact on global access to necessary reconstructive surgery and medical treatments. Worldwide, more than five billion people lack the ability to get the basic surgical care they need, leaving them living with reparable birth defects, burns, or other injuries. RealSelf funded surgical trips to India and Vietnam, and in 2016 we launched the RealSelf Fellowship program.


The RealSelf Fellowship program provides financial support to doctors who donate their time to provide care and training to underserved communities around the world.


The program was inspired by our participation and support of surgical teams that provided life-transforming care for those who lacked financial access. Learn more about our efforts in Quy Nhon, Vietnam, andDehradun, India.

    I have been working at RealSelf full-time (More than a year)


    I started just over a year ago when the company was 100 people, and now we are 160+ and still growing quickly! It's such an exciting and pivotal time to be here, and I have been impressed with how the team is adapting to the fast growth. I have been at a few companies that have really stumbled through this awkward teenage phase of growth, and while RealSelf doesn't seem or claim to be perfect, the right conversations are happening and I have faith the company will scale well as a result.


    As with any company growing at this rate, cross-team communication/coordination can always improve.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the vision and keep developing our emerging leaders to support growth.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at RealSelf (Seattle, WA) in February 2017.


    Applied online, 2 days after got a recruiter email, then she emailed me a case study to be finished within 5 days after I opened it. After I submitted it, I was notified that I passed the round and could speak with an analyst in the team. After the phone call we scheduled an onsite interview two weeks later.
    Since I was not a local candidate, Realself generously covered all my airfare, food, transportation and hotel to fly me in and interview me. The interview was a full afternoon including 5 interviews with 5 different people. After all the interviews, my recruiter came in and introduced the benefits (which are pretty decent). 3 business days later I got the email of interview result.

    Overall, Realself interview process is my favorite among all my other interviews. Recruiter professionalism is a top-notch. (God I wish more companies could hire recruiters like Realself!) Interviewers were so friendly and welcoming that it makes my other interviews with other companies a bit harsh (not blaming Realself here). They even prepared a goodie bag for interviewees including a tumbler, a notebook, peppermint ,a Starbucks gift card and a donation to charity in the name of the candidate!
