Hims Company Review
Hims is an online healthcare platform that specializes in men’s health. Launched in 2017 with the goal of offering affordable healthcare to all men. Now, four years later and Hims is regarded as one of the most successful direct-to-consumer brands ever, having raised a staggering $200+ million in funding, and as of March 2021, Hims is now a publicly-traded company on the NYSE.
Hims is all about personal wellness, which to Hims includes the overall health of your skin, hair, sexual health, mental health, and primary care. Hims as a company wants all men to look and feel their best at all times, as easily and affordably as possible.
Traditionally, the “real” man does not need to take care of himself and only women need skin and other health and beauty products. Hims completely disagrees and believes that for you to be the best version of yourself, you need to take care of every aspect of yourself.
Hims, and their team of online healthcare professionals, aim to make it as easy as possible to access the treatments for the conditions that affect their patients the most - premature balding, unsightly skin conditions, erectile dysfunction, and premature ejaculation. They are so committed to their patient’s well-being, they recently opened up their slew of services to focus on mental health and primary care.
Hims also provides access to highly trained and fully qualified medical professionals who are able to diagnose and prescribe the appropriate treatments for a number of conditions. Hims operates in all 50 U.S. States for all services except Psychiatry--this is only available in select states. They have also opened up some of their services to those living in the U.K.
If you’ve been feeling like you are ready to take your health and wellness to the next level, read on because Hims could be the best place to start your journey to the best skin, sex, and hair or your life.
How Hims Works?
Hims strives to make men’s health care accessible, convenient, and affordable for all men, and getting started with all the services at Hims is easy as 1-2-3! If you’re new to the telemedicine experience, don’t worry, it’s quick and painless. If you live and breathe the telemedicine life as we do, you can probably skip over this section, as you know most of these processes are pretty similar.
Here’s how the Hims process works:
Step 1 - Create your Profile
Regardless of the service or product, you’re interested in, you will first enter your medical history, then answer a few questions about your overall health, lifestyle, and symptoms you’re experiencing so that Hims can connect you with the appropriate medical provider. You will need a government-issued ID and credit card so the Hims medical provider knows who they are treating.
Step 2 - Speak with a Licensed Medical Professional
You’ll then be connected with a licensed medical professional in your state of residence to go over your symptoms, diagnosis, and chat about potential treatment options. Hims employs only licensed medical professionals that are dedicated to helping you navigate and address any and all of your health-related concerns. With Hims, you will always be connected with a real-life medical provider--on your terms, from the comfort of your home.
Step 3 - Have your Condition Treated & Prescription Delivered to your Door for FREE
After your IRL (in real life) consultation and once you are diagnosed, if your medical provider decides a prescription is an appropriate treatment plan, you will get your meds delivered directly to your doorstep. All prescriptions come in discreet packaging because your health is no one’s business but your own.
Are Hims Prescriptions Covered by Insurance?
Hims does not accept insurance for its services, but its products are available at 50-80% off retail cost, making it affordable for everyone. However, if you’re wanting to use your HSA or insurance, Hims will happily send your prescription to a local pharmacy.
Treatments and Products Available at Hims
The treatments offered by Hims can be divided into 7 broad categories:
Sex is an important part of every relationship and unfortunately, many couples are hesitant to start the conversation about their sex life (or lack thereof). Many men feel that if they admit to suffering from ED or premature ejaculation (PE) that they will seem less than to their partner. This is where they are completely WRONG! Recognizing that you have a problem getting or maintaining an erection is the first step to a better sex life and when it’s talked about openly in any relationship, all parties are more likely to be sexually satisfied when its acted on...so let your guard down--take that little blue (or white) pill and jump back into the sheets!
Hims makes it easy and way less uncomfortable to get your hot hands on prescriptions for ED or PE. There’s no need to sit in a cold doctor’s office and talk to another human about your ahem, issue. With Hims, you are able to have a virtual consultation with a medical professional that understands the challenges you’re facing that can quickly prescribe you a medication (if it's deemed appropriate), then have it shipped directly to your home. For FREE.
Erectile Dysfunction Treatment
Erectile Dysfunction (also known as ED) is something that affects 40% of men by the time they turn 40. Not being able to get and maintain an erect penis is a common problem. Patients diagnosed with ED by the licensed providers at Hims have a number of FDA-approved treatment options that can be prescribed all from the comfort of your home (or couch. Wherever you feel most comfortable).
Hims makes it extra affordable to once again be an animal between the sheets for as little as $4 a day!
Sildenafil (Generic Viagra)
As the most popular ED treatment, Sildenafil uses the exact same, we repeat, the exact same active ingredient as Viagra. Good News for you -- it’s 90% cheaper than its branded brother. Remember when we said for as little as $4 a day? Well, this is that option!
This was the first FDA-approved pill to treat ED, but in late 2017 when the patent expired for the brand, many other companies jumped at the chance to use its active ingredient, sildenafil. So, if you care about fancy brand names, Viagra could be the pill for you.
Unlike other ED pills that are to be taken an hour before intercourse, Stendra only needs to be taken 15 minutes ahead of time. This is the fastest acting option available today and is effective for up to 6 hours.
Tadalafil Daily (Generic Cialis®)
With the same active ingredients as Cialis, Tadalafil benefits those that like to get it on at the drop of a hat. The benefit of a daily dose is that you can get hard and enjoy sex at any point in the day rather than pre-plan with other pill options that should be taken an hour before sex, removing the spontaneity, and often excitement that usually comes with spur-of-the-moment intercourse.
As Tadalafil’s more expensive cousin, Cialis is also a once-a-day ED pill that gives you the ability to get an erection whenever you’re feeling raucous and randy.
Premature Ejaculation Treatment
Premature Ejaculation is a condition that is the result of a hypersensitive penis which results in an individual ejaculating in a matter of moments during any form of sexual interaction. If getting an erection isn’t your problem, but you’re in the one-and-done boat, Hims has what you need to be the king of bed island before you know it.
Climax Delay Spray
This spray contains lidocaine, which reduces sensitivity to the applied area without removing sensation entirely. It should be used 5-10 minutes before sex and should be applied to the most sensitive areas of the penis. Unlike other topical treatments, the spray is absorbed into the skin, which removes the possibility of transferring efficacy to the partner.
Sertraline (Generic Zoloft)
This treatment allows men to maintain an erection for longer and should be taken as needed to extend the period before the climax. Sertraline puts your climax back in your control without calling a T.O. to reach for the topical sprays or gels.
Valacyclovir for Genital Herpes
Herpes is a simple virus that is easily treatable, also one of the most ignored health issues. Herpes breakouts if ignored can be very painful sometimes. Valacyclovir is a suppressive therapy to treat genital herpes. Taking Valacyclovir every day you can reduce asymptomatic viral shedding by 70-80%.
Cold Sore Kit – The Suppressor
Hims Cold Sore Kit is specialized to make sores go away faster. Unlike other treatments that you may find over the counter, valacyclovir provides relief in just two to three days. Yes, that's how fast it is! And the best part is that you don’t have to go anywhere. You can get the treatment virtually from the privacy and comfort of your home.
One sure sign of balding is finding more hair on your hairbrush every day. Once you are bald, there is no going back. Thankfully there are a few things you can do to restore your crowning glory before it is too late.
Hair Loss Treatment
Finasteride (Generic Propecia)
This is a treatment used by patients diagnosed with male pattern baldness, with hair loss usually centered at the crown and middle of the scalp. Regular use of Finasteride promotes thicker hair growth and slows the rate of hair loss. Unfortunately, this hair loss treatment comes with some downsides so make sure you learn how to reduce side effects of Finasteride before starting treatment.
Minoxidil (Generic Rogaine) Drops
This topical treatment should be used once a day. It encourages hair to replace old strands of hair with new ones by dilating blood and increasing the blood flow to the brain.
Hair Care Products
This shampoo reduces the amount of DHT, which is a hormone that can cause hair loss, as well as increase volume and moisture.
We all know that a shampoo is only as good as its conditioner. This anti-hair loss conditioner contains niacinamide and promotes the healthy growth of the hair. It can also be applied after the Thickening Shampoo to boost the moisture of the hair.
This yummy gummy is chock-full of Vitamin B7 and encourages thicker hair, stronger nails, better skin and increases the levels of nutrients known to be beneficial to the heart, nerves, and digestion.
Having a great skincare regimen isn’t just for women anymore. Men have been ‘Glowing up’ just as much as their gender counterparts in the last few years. With great skin care comes great skincare products and Hims has just what you need to combat signs of aging, ance, or dehydrated skin.
Hims connects you to prescription solutions that are backed by science to help reduce acne and the appearance of wrinkles and the effects of aging and delivers them to your doorstep. Because who doesn’t want to have the skin they had a 30 when they’re pushing 50?
Known by the Hims team as ‘The Fresh Prince,’ this anti-aging cream was formulated by dermatologists that understand a man’s want to smooth out their wrinkles and repair any damage done by the sun and outside environment. Aging shouldn’t be seen as a scary thing. Let Hims help you incorporate this into your daily routine.
Goodnight Wrinkle Men’s Night Cream
When you’ve already had a long day, the last thing you want to do is go through a less than basic nighttime skincare regimen. Hims has formulated this cream to easily give your skin a break as you sleep. Slather it on before bed and wake up with a fresh face. The night cream is packed with caffeine (no, it won’t keep you up at night) and hyaluronic acid to stave off the appearance of dark circles and fine lines.
Customized Acne Cream
This one-stop skincare product is powered by a mix of up to five ingredients, including prescription-strength retinoid and topical antibiotics to help clear up whiteheads, blackheads, and existing breakouts. Hims Acne cream is tailored specifically for your skin because no one man’s skin is the same as the next.
Hims acne cream has five key ingredients that combat acne, including:
Niacinamide that fights off excess oil and helps keep skin moisturized
Zinc Pyrithione, which is an anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal that helps to stave off acne caused by fungus
Azelaic Acid helps to manage and keep hyperpigmentation under wraps
Clindamycin wipes out acne-forming bacteria
Tretinoin aids in building healthy skin cells up to the surface of the face
Morning Glow Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C is most known to support your immune system, but it is also a super important antioxidant when used topically. It can help your skin look brighter, feel softer, and make everyone around you think that you’ve slept at least eight hours (even if you were up partying all night).
Moisturizer is THE most important part of your skincare routine. It protects your skin from free radicals and helps to maintain hydration throughout the day. Hims everyday cream is lightweight and will leave your face feeling silky smooth.
When we said that Hims had something for everyone, we were not joking. Hims now offers its patients access to top-quality mental health services. They understand that at times people can feel isolated and want you to know that you are not alone. Whether you’re looking for Psychiatric help, medication management, or an online support group, Hims has your back.
Just as Hims takes your privacy seriously, they also do not take mental health with a grain of salt. Each therapist, psychiatrist, and other mental health providers on their platform are vetted and every medication is well known and backed by scientific evidence.
Hims currently offers Psychiatry evaluations and medication, anonymous support groups, and a wealth of resources and content for you to feel your best and navigate your way through any mental health issues you might be dealing with.
Telepsychiatry Evaluations and Medication

Hims Psychiatry is only available in select states. Their website isn’t explicit about where they are able to provide service, however, once you submit interest, you will be asked in which state you reside as one of the first questions to ensure no one’s time is wasted.
Anonymous Support Groups
Individual therapy isn’t for everyone and with Hims support groups, you can still get the help you desire in a group setting where you will learn effective tools and strategies for common concerns from licensed therapists and mental health professionals. During these one-hour groups, you’ll be virtually surrounded by other people who have similar concerns and experiences to yours. Hims doesn’t offer traditional support group ‘classes,’ but they offer sessions that cover common topics, such as taking control of your anxiety, navigating depression, staying in the moment when online, and many others. Hims adds a new session topic each week at different times based on what is convenient for you.
Each session is capped at 15 people to keep the group setting as intimate as possible. You will be able to listen to the moderator speak on the specific topic and submit your questions throughout. This is a great way to dip your toe into the world of therapy. The best part--support group sessions are free to anyone wanting to give them a try.
Because we love our readers and want you to be informed as possible, we want you to know that Hims is set to begin offering individual therapy in the near future. Get personalized treatment and talk to a therapist via chat or video.
Resources and Content
Hims is so avid about providing quality mental health care to all, that they also offer free online tools for you to use at any time. With Hims resources you will be able to learn strategies for common concerns with short and on-demand videos to watch on your schedule. Video topics range from mindfulness for depression and anxiety to self-compassion to how to get a better night’s rest. Each video ranges from four to 10 minutes and is hosted by one of Hims expert mental health professionals.
Because it’s never been more important to stay home and keep yourself healthy, Hims is now offering its users access to 100% virtual primary care for only $39 per visit.

With a Hims test, you will be able to spit into a tube, send it in for analysis, and have your results within 3-5 days.
