About Aviqua

Aviqua claims to be an ultra-premium anti-wrinkle complex made from 100% organic blends that can help restore hydration, increase collagen and elastin production, boost skin immunity, and eliminate dulling debris.

As a result, Aviqua’s clinically proven proprietary formula will work naturally to brighten your skin’s appearance, restore radiant, firmer skin; eliminate under eye puffiness, and smooth stubborn lines and wrinkles. This way, your skin tone will improve, you’ll have a firmer underlying skin structure, and the reduced sagging will help you “achieve visibly younger looking skin.”

Did you learn about Aviqua through a pop-up advertisement, or through an ad on Facebook? Wherever you may have learned about it, you’re here because you want to know if it will really live up to the hype. And perhaps most importantly, if it’s worthy of your hard-earned money.

We’ll explore all of this here, starting with exactly where Aviqua claims to help.

What Makes Up Your Skin’s Structure?

While there are a wide variety of components that make up your skin, the two biggest are collagen and elastin. Collagen makes up about 30% of the protein in our body and provides a kind of “cellular glue” that gives connective tissue its strength. Elastin, another protein commonly found in connective tissue, gives skin elasticity, or the ability to snap back into place after being stretched.

In short, it might be best to think of collagen as an underlying framework, or foundation, for skin, while elastin can be thought of as a sort of rubber band.

In our youth, our body has all the collagen and elastin it needs, which—among many other things—is why our skin looks plump and wrinkle-free. As time ticks by, though, our body produces less and less collagen and elastin, leading to traditional signs of aging like wrinkles and sagging, lifeless skin.

So, why not just apply more collagen and elastin to your skin? In a nutshell, it’s because these molecules are too big to pass the skin barrier, so they just sit there until evaporating or being washed off at the end of the day. This is why most anti-aging products, whether from online-only manufacturers or the largest in the industry, basically just moisturize your skin.

Obviously, if you’re skin is especially dry, this moisturization can go a long way toward decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging. But it probably won’t provide any kind of “revolutionary” results for otherwise healthy skin.

What about the ingredients in Aviqua, though? Will they provide anything more than moisturization?

What Ingredients Does Aviqua Contain?

Despite all the website real estate dedicated to talking about Aviqua’s life-changing benefits, we’re not provided with any clinical proof to back up these claims, nor are we told about any of the ingredients the serum contains.

Actually, we are told that Aviqua delivers whole collagen molecules (versus the collagen fragments often found in the competition). However, as we discussed in the previous section, whether they’re partial or whole, collagen molecules are too big to pass the skin’s barrier, so they won’t be absorbed where they can do any good.

Can Aviqua Be Used for Dark Spots & Acne?

Again, without knowing what ingredients Aviqua contains, there’s no way to know if it’s effective for specific conditions, like dark spots and acne. With this said, keep in mind there is more than one kind of acne, not to mention hundreds of different causes, so you’ll definitely want to speak with your dermatologist.

On the other hand, there are only a few common causes of dark spots, which can be treated in several different ways, depending on your needs and preferences. For more, be sure to read How to Treat Dark Spots.

Where Can You Buy Aviqua?

The only way to purchase Aviqua is through the company’s 14-day trial, which is extremely common among these types of products (more about this in the next section). To start the trial, you’ll pay $4.98 to cover S&H and will be sent a full size, 30-day supply of the serum.

What the company conveniently fails to emphasize is that after 14 days have passed (from the order date, not the date you received your package), you’ll be billed $98.11. You’ll also continue receiving a new bottle of Aviqua every month through the company’s autoship program and billed $98.11 each time.

What If You Want to Return Aviqua?

According to Aviqua’s Terms, if you choose to cancel your trial, you’ll “have the option of either returning the remaining balance of unused product and pay no fee, or keep the remaining unused product and pay a $9.95 retention fee.”

Outside of the trial, Aviqua comes with a 30-day refund policy, although this only applies to your most recent shipment. Also, keep in mind that this is less S&H charges, as well as a $9.95 restocking fee.

In order to request a refund, cancel your trial, or stop your automatic shipments, you’ll need to call customer service at 888-853-7721 and obtain an RMA, which is required.

Aviqua vs. Other Online-Only Anti-Aging Creams

We’ve reviewed dozens of anti-aging creams sold only online like Aviqua, so we’re fairly versed in many of the tactics these companies use to get you to buy, as well as what many customers think of these products. Given this experience, we think there are a few different red flags for Aviqua that you should be aware of:

Aviqua’s Website Template

If you quickly glance at the website for other products like Nouvebelle, Erase/Repair HA, and Neuology SynAke (among many others) and compare them to Aviqua’s, you’ll immediately notice that they’re basically identical.

We wrote about this phenomenon in Avoid These Anti-Aging Websites Like the Plague, where we outlined why we think only a handful of companies are behind all these products. When one product accumulates too much negative customer feedback, the company takes down the site, changes the product name, puts up a new site in just a couple hours, and they’re back in business. They don’t even need to change the actual product—just the name!

What kind of negative feedback are these products receiving from customers?

Customer Feedback For Other Online-Only Serums

If you take just a few moments to read through customer reviews for these types of anti-aging products, you’ll learn that 1) they come with ultra-low reviews, usually 1.5 stars or less, and 2) customers almost always reference one or more of the following complaints:

  • Failure to work as advertised. Or, in some instances, moderate skin reactions that required a visit to the doctor.
  • High price. As we can clearly see with Aviqua, these products often come with ultra-high prices, which might not be warranted based on the previous complaint.
  • Poor customer service. Many times, customers complain that when they called customer service to cancel their trial or request a refund, customer servicer personnel were rude and often made the process difficult. A lot of customers claimed they were forced to cancel their credit card due to all the brick walls from customer service.

Granted, we’re willing to give Aviqua the benefit of the doubt, but we think this is something you should strongly consider before handing over your credit card number.

Is It Safe to Try Aviqua?

In the end, we’ll conclude our Aviqua review with much the same advice we provide on other online-only anti-aging products: Talk with your doctor first. Why?

Considering the fact that Aviqua comes from an unknown manufacturer, contains unknown ingredients, is priced extremely high, and uses the same website template/business model as several other less-than-stellar products, we think there are a lot of warning signs for the serum, and that your doctor might provide a much better bang for your buck.

  • Do not order this product!

    I ordered this through a pop up on Facebook, and there was nowhere that it said it was a trial, and then I saw charges on my credit card. They would not offer me a return even though the package was not opened. DO NOT order this product

    I had to give it a one-star rating because it won't accept a zero!

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

  • You will be billed the full cost for the "free sample!"

    Obviously, I didn't read far enough into the terms and conditions because my "free sample" cost me $98.11. According to the rep, if I wasn't pleased with my "free sample" I had to call back within 14 days to express my dissatisfaction or be billed for the usual cost for a minuscule jar at the cost of $98.11. And they would have billed me more in the future if I hadn't called now.

    Don't fall for it. The stuff clogs my pores and makes me sweat, and I am sick that I fell for this. My rating is zero stars, but they don't accept zeroes, so I clicked one.

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

    Complete rip-off

    • Michigan,
    • Jun 14, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I tried to cancel seconds after inadvertently pressing the join button because I noticed suspicious charges on the promo advertised order. It has taken me two weeks, three phone calls, and am shipping products back that I didn't intend nor want to order it. Within seconds, they claimed they couldn't cancel the order. So now I am being charged a refusal fee of an additional $10? I am writing to the BBB. It's a fraudulent scam to get you to try their product with many strings attached.

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

    Do not order "free" sample unless you want a cute jar for $100, true to $4.95 cost but you will pay 20 times the amount

    I am disgusted with the way this product is marketed now. It is completely immoral and not customer oriented. I have warned my friends and will continue making everyone aware to NOT get involved with this company.

    I authorized the shipping charge of a free sample and not even three weeks after the original transaction, I was hit with almost $200 in additional charges to my card. The terms which they feel authorize them to use your card as they please are very well hidden, and you will not see them in a plain view while ordering, not in an email or in the mailed package along with your "free" sample. I sure looked for that.

    Customer "support" reps are well trained to read the same script to you no matter what you are saying: allergic reaction, not being satisfied with the quality - it does not matter. One even made a mistake of reading off the paper: "you said the product worked for you," when I was sharing quite the opposite. They will keep your money without regard to your experience. With my skin sensitivities, I did not even get to try it until two weeks after delivery, and when I did, I was not impressed whatsoever.

    The quality is true to its cost to make - $4.95, not the $98.11 for face or $89.26 for the eyes. I had to stop it too due to redness. The amount for a "month" supply of not so free sample won't last you that long as the product is thick and the jar is tiny. The only positive thing is a cute jar.

    Bottom line: unless your goal is to provide this immoral business with insane profits and unreasonable margins, don't buy it.

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

    Refused to cancel

    The website did not state I would continue to be sent and billed for future outrageous costly products. I also clicked to review Lucana eye serum product. I was charged and the website froze. I received emails confirming the order for both products. I went online to find the company when I saw reviews of the scam. I called the number in the email and "DAVID" refused to cancel orders, spoke over me and kept adding more charges as he spoke. After 15 minutes and saying I was reporting the company for fraud, he canceled the order. I called back to confirm cancellation, but I will wait and see.

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

    Awful merchant

    • Staten Island, NY,
    • May 23, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    This is an awful, awful merchant. You agree to a free trial, pay only shipping and handling, and nowhere is it apparent that you will be charged close to $200 for the two products after 14 days! I only realized what was going on after I got an email (today) telling me my second shipment was going out! I immediately checked my credit card statement and realized that I had been charged last month close to $200 and there was a pending charge today for $98.

    I called the merchant, and as others have said, they tried to offer discounts of up to 75% to continue! I kept refusing. They said I could return the pending shipment once it arrived, and they canceled my subscription. I called my credit card company to dispute the charges. I have the credit card over ten years and have never disputed a charge in the past, so I am hopeful these scammers won't get my money. As others have said, I don't trust them to stop the charges, so I canceled my credit card and requested a new account number.

    Lesson learned: stick with well-known, reputable companies.

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

    Deceiving ad

    I sent for the sample and didn't notice that this small amount of cream would cost me over $90 if I didn't cancel within ten days.

    The cream arrived when I was on vacation so by the time I tried it they were charging my card. I also found that for this very small amount it was overpriced. Also, it was very drying and didn't do a thing for me.

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

    Horrible customer service

    The package delivered via USPS, but not received at my house. Calling the company to understand the issue, as I am being charged over a $100.00 for two shipments I did not receive, I was handled disrespectfully by Bernard, who then refused to transfer me to a supervisor. After many calls, this company is a scam. All this rep did was to constantly bring down the price 75% for me to continue, not listening to a word I said and kept patronizing me throughout the conversation.

    As a VP of sales, this rep would have been let go immediately. I have never used the product which is what the rep did not understand.

    I am very unhappy. Lord knows the postal service always delivers to the right house and this is why I have so many of my neighbor's pieces of mail I need to return each month.

    VERY unhappy customer.

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

    Do not buy!

    • Illinois,
    • May 10, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    This is a trick for your money. DO NOT have anything to do with this company. They say it is $4.95 shipping for a teeny tiny bottle of moisturizer and then charge a miraculous $98.11 to your credit card. This is a miraculous scam for money. When you call to complain, customer service says they cannot return your money because I did not call sooner. Then tries to sell me more crap.

    Stay away from this company.
