About Allegro Anti Aging

Normally, allegro is a musical term that means “at a brisk pace.” In this review though, we’re talking about Allegro Anti Aging, a beauty serum that promises fewer wrinkles, brighter skin, improved hydration, and “visibly younger looking skin”—without surgery, injections, or other painful procedures.

How? According to the manufacturer, Allegro delivers whole collagen molecules directly to your skin, versus the collagen fragments found in other serums. What’s more, they claim this collagen is suspended in a peptide-rich formula that rebuilds the skin from the inside.

Before handing over your hard-earned money, let’s look at the facts and find out whether you should start moving toward Allegro Anti Aging at a brisk pace—or running away as fast as you can.

The Curious Case of the Recurring Template

Before diving in to anything else, we think it’s important to point out that there are literally dozens (maybe even hundreds) of products just like Allegro Anti Aging. No, we’re not talk about similarities here; we’re talking about exactly, word-for-word identical.

To quickly see what we mean, check out the websites for other anti-aging creams like Erase/Repair HA, Nouvebelle, and Neuology Syn Ake. Except for the product names and pictures, they’re identical to Allegro Anti Aging, right? What’s the deal?

Although you can read about the whole process in Avoid These Anti-Aging Websites Like the Plague, in a nutshell, here’s what we think is going on: Company A sources an inexpensive white label beauty cream from overseas, increases the price considerably, and starts selling online. Because the product doesn’t perform as advertised and costs close to $100, consumer complaints soon start rolling in.

Instead of addressing these complaints, however, the service departments for these companies (often outsourced) are specifically trained to make the refund process as difficult as possible, probably in the hopes that you’ll give up. Then, after enough complaints have surfaced, the company takes down the website, uses the same template with a different product name and picture, posts the new website, and they’re back up and running in just a couple hours.

This is the primary reason all of these template-based anti-aging products have ultra-low ratings here on HighYa (as well as other consumer advocacy websites); typically 1.5 stars or lower. And 99% of the time, complaints revolve around some (or all) of the following: high price, failure to work, and bottom-of-the-barrel customer service.

Speaking of price, let’s find out how much you’ll pay for the pleasure of Allegro Anti Aging.

Allegro Anti Aging’s “Free” Trial

Considering all this customer backlash, you might wonder how in the world these companies convince people to buy.

Basically, they make you think you’re getting a trial size portion of the product, as long as you pay a small amount (in this instance it’s $4.95) to cover S&H. What they conveniently only mention in the fine print and Terms is that 14 days after your order, you’ll be charged the full price of $103.

On top of this, you’ll continue receiving a new bottle of Allegro once per month, and you’ll be charged $103 plus $6.95 S&H each time.

A screenshot of Allegro's checkout processThe Allegro Anti Aging website didn’t provide any fine print trial details on their website, so the only way to learn more was in their Terms—the last place most customers would look.

Allegro’s Terms also mention that you can call 877-521-2833 to request a refund within 30 days (or cancel your trial or autoship enrollment). As we outlined in the previous section, based on customer complaints for identical products, we think this will be anything but a walk in the park.

Alright, even if we were to clear all of this out of our mind, give Allegro Anti Aging the benefit of doubt, and assume it’s the one product among all of these others that’s legit, we still don’t think it would perform as advertised. Why? That’s what we’ll outline in the next section.

Why Collagen Doesn’t Reverse the Signs of Aging

Other than peptides, we’re not told about any ingredients found in Allegro Anti Aging, other than whole collagen molecules.

We won’t go into too much detail here, but collagen and elastin are the two most abundant proteins in the human body, which provide structural support and elasticity, respectively. Based on their functions, collagen and elastin are most commonly found in bones, muscles, tendons and other connective tissues, and skin.

When talking about skin specifically, you can think of collagen as a sort of scaffolding that gives skin its firmness and strength, while elastin helps skin snap back into place after being stretched. The problem is that our body produces less and less of these proteins as we age, leading to wrinkles, sagging, and dull, lifeless skin.

To compound the problem, science doesn’t yet understand how to replace these proteins once they’re lost. Why? Because an oral collagen supplement is just broken down into amino acids within the digestive tract, and injectable collagen can be used as a filler, but it’s only temporary and doesn’t boost collagen production inside the body.

What about applying a collagen-containing cream to the skin, like Allegro? The thing about skin is that it doesn’t have a habit of absorbing anything it comes into contact with. Otherwise, we wouldn’t live very long. Instead, collagen molecules (whether whole or fragmented) just sit on the surface of skin until being washed off or evaporating.

The Bottom Line About Allegro Anti Aging

Considering its identical website to other anti-aging creams consumers are calling “scams,” the fact that its only known ingredient won’t work, along with its ultra-high price (in fact, this is the highest priced template-based cream we’ve reviewed to date!), it would be our recommendation to speak with your doctor instead of ordering Allegro Anti Aging.

It’s not all doom and gloom, though! The good news is that we’ve written dozens of anti-aging articles that can help you fight back against the hands of time, without having to worry about flushing your hard-earned money down the drain.

    They want your checking account number to bill you $109 a month

    There is nothing free about this. I called 844-797-2681 and spoke to a woman from India. I usually never buy anything without my American Express card and never will again.

    There is nothing the bank can do, except cancel your debit card and eat the rest.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Reoccurring charges

    The product worked ok, same as much cheaper products, but it is a reoccurring charge they keep charging, even if you quit. The ad says it is a sample, but it is a $110 charge if you don't return the container within 14 days of ordering. I sent mine back immediately, which they said they didn't get so charged me again. I was stupid and had thrown away my tracking number for the returned product.

    Avoid this company! It is a scam, and they just keep charging.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Gentle giant!

    A very light and soft cream that the skin absorbs almost instantly. I can feel the gentle tightening of the skin. After three weeks of using it, I notice a reduction of lines on my forehead and on my neck! My face has a glow that was missing before. It is delightful to use because it is so lightweight in comparison to other creams, and doesn't leave a plastic feel to the skin.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    I saw the ad on Facebook to buy a free, no obligation trial size of Brio serums. They came, and there was a normal charge of $3.99 for shipping and handling. Fine. Then I get Allegro cream in April (yesterday). I checked the bank and bam; they got me three times for $109.00. I called and they told me I signed up for it. No, I did not.

    They said I had to keep it and there was nothing they could do. I went to my bank and Mastercard is investigating. I am sure the Attorney General's office in whatever city it's in needs to catch these people!

      Mary,

      I canceled my order on January 1st, and they still will not stop charging my account! I called the number to cancel the order that they gave me at the time of ordering if needed to cancel my shipments. They gave me a cancellation number, and I thought it was done. The phone number I called to cancel, is a non-working number now.

    Allegro cream free trial

    I ordered a "free trial" for $4.95 shipping. "YSI* Skincare" just charged my account $103. They also sent me two products I did not authorize. They refused to give me my money back for returning them all unopened. Later they offered a 40% refund. I told them I would contact FTC, which I have just done. My credit card company said they get these scams for skin products all the time, thousands a day.

    Scammed

    I got sucked into this scam. I ordered a jar of Allegro for a payment of $4.95 for S&H. Immediately, it stated that I would also get Brio for $4.95 for S&H. I was not told anything about the "fine print." I did send an email within the 14-day period, asking that my account be closed and that no other product be sent. But apparently, it went to the "wrong department or was lost," and I was not able to get a full refund.

    When I called about the charge on my credit card, the representative "could not hear me." It had nothing to do with the connection, but the background noise at his location. I had to yell. He was very polite to me and said he could cancel by account, and I'd only have to pay 60% of the charge. WHOOPEE!

    I think the noise was part of the scam. I'm not happy with the product, which has to be used every day. The ad shows that rubbing the Allegro under the eyes magically takes away problems. "It makes a difference right away."

    I could maybe understand using it every day IF it worked when applied and had to be replied daily, but it did absolutely nothing. This was certainly a scam. How much money are these companies making off these scams?

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Allegro scam

    Like the other reviewers, I was unaware of the $103 recurring charge for my $4.95 trial until I noticed the charge in my bank account.

    I was not allowed to speak to a supervisor, and the customer service representative was very condescending, and I could tell that my complaint was very common. Under no circumstances would I ever authorize this type of automatic withdrawal from my account if the details were not buried in the terms and conditions.

    Also, I called to cancel on the 14th day and was told it was after the time of the order and that I had to call before the time the order was placed. I was also told that it was the 14th that the order was placed, not the 14th day after receipt.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Scam business

    • Kansas City, MO,
    • Mar 10, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I ordered this product from an ad on Facebook which stated that many others have said it was a trial size product of Allegro and Brio Skin Care firming products. They mentioned in the ad that it was developed by two sisters and approved by all team members on Shark Tank, so I thought since it was a legit show, then the products must be legitimate.

    Nowhere in the purchase order did it state anything about the full price and terms of those charges. I received both products quickly, have been using them with no results. Then the charge for $103 appeared on my bank account. I called them, and the service person I talked to would not relent for a refund, so I asked to simply to be un-enrolled and to receive an email confirmation.

    The very next day a charge showed up for $109. I called again and had the same conversation until I mentioned I was going to speak to my bank. At that point, he finally agreed to refund 40% of both products and to un-enroll me. My next contact is going to be with our state attorney general. I wish I had known that this website called HighYa had existed before I purchased this product. Don't get caught in their scam.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I ordered this product for the introductory price of $4.95, never received any other product, and yet they charged me $110! Then they charged me for Brio, which was never received either.

    The company is horrible, stay away from them! Cindy Crawford's line works so much better, and is more reasonably priced as well.

    A complete and utter scam

    • Los Angeles, CA,
    • Feb 8, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I made the mistake of ordering this product thinking it would be something to try. I had no idea that my $0.99 trial would turn into over $200 in charges later, and would apparently include a subscription where they continue to charge me. Trying to get anyone on the phone to help me get a refund is impossible.

    They are truly the worst, and of course, trying to track them down is impossible. I wish there was an option to have NO stars. They are crooks!

    I ordered this product thinking I was getting a sample. Instead, I was charged twice on my credit card. Once for $103 and once for $106. Citi Bank would not help me, so I called Allegro. They laughed and said there was no refund. I had sent back two out of three of their shipments, but they would not give me a refund.

    Stay away from Allegro. They are a crooked organization.
