About BellaVita Anti-Aging Serum

BellaVita Anti-Aging Serum claims to be a 3-in-1 collagen serum that is clinically proven to stimulate collagen and elastin production at a cellular level, thereby enhancing your skin’s hydration and firmness, which reduces the visible signs of aging related to fine lines and wrinkles. In fact, the manufacturer claims that BellaVita Anti-Aging Serum has a 90% success rate and can help you look 10 years younger in minutes.

How Does BellaVita Anti-Aging Serum Claim to Work?

After undergoing development for more than a decade, BellaVita Anti-Aging Collagen Serum claims to be the #1 anti-aging serum that uses clinically advanced skin care technology to repair, restore, and rejuvenate the skin's dermal matrix; improve skin hydration and reinforce its structure; and smooth furrow lines, diminish crow’s feet, reduce dark circles, tighten sagging cheeks, soften wrinkled skin, and lighten frown lines. The company claims that by using BellaVita, you’ll see visible results after just one day, and will experience a 50%-90% wrinkle reduction in 90 days.

In order to accomplish this, BellaVita Serum claims to be blended in a patented process and to contain four of the most effective substances clinically proven for real results, including:

  • Trylagen – A series of proteins and peptides that are claimed to promote collagen production and to reduce further skin damage.
  • Vitamin A – An antioxidant that may help skin cells fight off free radicals.
  • Green Tea Extract – Another antioxidant that claims to prevent environmental damage, while also blocking collagen-reducing enzymes.
  • Jojoba Seed Oil – Claimed to provide all-day skin moisturization.

BellaVita has a few different websites (we’ll talk more about this in the final section), each of which provides a slightly different marketing tactic and presents varying information about the product.

With this said, one of these websites claims that BellaVita also contains argireline to treat crow’s feet, shrink enlarged pores, and heal sun-damaged skin, as well as Gatuline expression extract (Acmella Oleracea Extract) to produce Botox-like effects, in addition to Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid.

With regular use, BellaVita Anti-Aging serum is claimed to restore natural levels of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and fibronectin in your skin, without side effects or risk.

BellaVita Anti-Aging Serum Pricing & Refund Policy

BellaVita Anti-Aging Serum is only available via a 14-day trial (total of 18 days including the 4-day grace period) for $4.95 S&H.

After your trial has expired, you’ll be charged $97.95 for the full cost of the product, and will be enrolled in the company’s membership (read: autoship) program, which means you’ll continue receiving a new supply of BellaVita once every 30 days, and your credit card will be charged $97.95 each time, until you call to cancel.

BellaVita comes with a 30-day refund policy, although this only applies to your most recent shipment.

According to the company’s Terms & Conditions, you’ll need to call (866) 887-2978 in order to cancel your autoship enrollment, and 866-537-4552 for a refund.

Will BellaVita Anti-Aging Serum Help Reduce the Signs of Aging?

Considering that BellaVita Serum will set you back almost $100 per month, can you realistically expect to obtain anti-aging results in line with its high price? Consider the following:

BellaVita’s Ingredients Breakdown

Trylagen is a proprietary formulation claimed to be clinically shown to stimulate I, III, and IV collagen types, although none of this research is made publically available. Argireline is a formulation owned by Lipotec based out of Barcelona, Spain, which is claimed to act similar to Botox and to relax facial muscles. Again, clinical trials are claimed to have occurred, although these are not available online. Acmella Oleracea has been widely studied for a variety of uses, although there are no online clinical trials showing its effectiveness at reducing the signs of aging.

On the other hand, hyaluronic acid is an ingredient contained in nearly all anti-aging treatments, and is most effective when injected into the skin. However, according to WebMD, there is insufficient evidence that applying it topically to skin can reduce the signs of aging. On top of this, while Vitamins A&C and green tea extract may provide a healthy dose of antioxidants, and Jojoba seed oil may help moisturize your skin, there is insufficient evidence showing any of these can reduce the signs of aging.

With all of this said, there is no product label provided for BellaVita Anti-Aging Serum on any of its websites, so there’s no way of knowing how much of each ingredient the product contains, or if these are all of the ingredients it contains.

Addressing BellaVita’s Claims

Next, between BellaVita’s three main websites, a whole lot of claims are made, including:

  • #1 anti-aging serum
  • 3-in-1
  • Clinically proven
  • Blended in a patented process
  • 96% increase in skin elasticity
  • 80% increase in skin moisture
  • 84% decrease in fine lines and wrinkles

…and many more. However, we’re not informed who voted the serum number one, what exactly “3-in-1” references, what’s involved in the “patented” process, or how any of the facts and figures presented were obtained. There is also no clinical evidence provided to back up any of their claims, so we might recommend taking all of these with a grain of salt.

BellaVita’s Marketing Tactics

Finally, BellaVita Anti-Aging Collagen Serum uses some questionable marketing tactics by featuring a fake news article (found here) that might lead you to believe you’re reading an unbiased review, when the exact opposite is true.

The site may also lead you to believe that BellaVita was featured in many mainstream news outlets, including Woman’s Day, TIME, People, and more. However, we couldn’t find any third-party verification that BellaVita appeared in any of these.

On top of this, it appears that BellaVita also includes fake celebrity endorsements from Dr. Oz on this same site, as well as some identical before and after images also found on the Monami Cosmetics’ website.

Bottom Line

Between the enormous number of unsubstantiated claims, the lack of clinical evidence for the product and its ingredients, the questionable marketing tactics, and the extraordinarily high price, we would recommend speaking with your dermatologist about tried and true methods of reducing the signs of aging.

    Scam

    They send you a free trial for a $5.95 shipping cost. 14 days later they charge you $177 (89.95 for 1 and 86.95 for the 2nd product) and when you call all they will offer is cancellation from now on or 35% off for the future. There are several others who had the exact same problem. Please do not fall for their scam.

    Scam

    • Orem, Utah,
    • Oct 26, 2016

    This is a scam! I fell for the only pay shipping and handling of 4.95 and call to cancel within 14 days to stop billing and other shipments. Whether you call in or not, they will have "no record" of your call asking them to cancel and then they will proceed to bill you over and over, send you a product you no longer want and argue with you forever. I just spent an hour on the phone only to get a 75% refund. Oldest scam in the book and I can't believe I fell for it. They are rude, bullying and as soon as the charge hits my bank account again, I'm filing a complaint with my bank and disputing the charges. I am also giving this same review on every site I can think of.

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

    Report to FTC.com

    I, like everyone on this site have been scammed out of 380.00+, I am sick and angry. I have never been scammed, with very little recourse and utter frustration. PLEASE go to the Federal Trade Commission, at ftccomplaintassistant.gov, which is a reporting website for protecting consumers. File a complaint, under scams, if enough people complain, they will investigate. We are only powerful in number. You can write up to 3500 characters and will submit and be given a reference number.

    I highly doubt this operation is out of California, which is a PO BOX, useless to complain to BBB there. Please consider doing this, I have never felt so angry or frustrated in all my life. Especially because my credit card company basically said they cannot take off questionable charges of exorbitant fees for products I did not receive because BellaVita will likely say I agreed to terms, of which there were no such terms, on any paperwork I went through.

    I do not even feel like my credit agency is my advocate. It took a 3-way call with the credit agency, and crooks at BellaVita, to get my account closed. At which point my credit card company has said from here forward I will have recourse. Unbelievable.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I had a second product that was on screen after I ordered skin serum. I backed out when it asked if I wanted eye cream, I later found it was charged, so I had 2 product charges each month, and the amounts were different each month, for each product. Obviously, so you would not recognize it as a recurring expense. I could write a book here. Please complain to FTC. Thank you.

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

    Scam

    • Mishawaka, IN,
    • Sep 9, 2016

    Why? If your product works and is so great that you do not make the terms and conditions out in the open and more easy to see. People have to click on the terms and conditions there read all the fine print, to read that you'll be charged $97 every month if you don't cancel.

    When I ordered my trial bottle I thought it was a one time deal. I thought if I didn't like it I had 14 days to send that back. Well that was my error because apparently I didn't read the terms and conditions.

    I say an upfront and honest company is what we need more in this country. Where is pride in this company? I hope they and all scammer companies get shut down. I don't recommend this to anyone, zero stars by the way. Plus they offered me 50% back I fought until I got 75% back. So if I was that unhappy why not go the 100%?

    I guess they feel like getting paid for being fraudulent. Thanks, you know who you are because I told you off.

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

    Stay away from this company

    • Virginia,
    • Aug 16, 2016

    I was "rewarded" with this product when I participated in completing a survey for my cable company. They obtained my credit card information to pay minimal shipping fees and offered me a second product sample for second shipping fee. I did not realize that I was agreeing to a monthly contract and that my "rewards" were going to cost me $97 & $98, respectively. They did not send me an E-receipt which I routinely receive for all internet purchases. I was actually surprised when I received my first "contractual" monthly shipment with a packing statement that did not indicate that I was being charged for this also. Now I am in the middle of a fraud dispute with my bank and this company.

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

    Complete scam

    • Salt Lake City, UT,
    • Aug 14, 2016

    Got shipment with 2 items on 7/7/16. I canceled on 7/11 with a confirmation number. Then I got billed $95 on 7/21/16 but the credit card statement was showing a charge on 8/7. I called BellaVita on 8/7/16 and they claimed that they only canceled one item of the 2 on the order and refused to credit the remainder. instead they offered a 50% refund.

    I have disputed this charge with my credit company and just discovered today that since the last credit statement ending 8/5/16, they have auto charged another $95 on 8/6/16, which I have now also disputed.

    There is no return info when they send product and they don't accept "return to sender". I only received their "trial" product & canceled 4 days after receiving that. Now I have about $200 in disputed charges. Rip-Off

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

    Total Scam

    This company is a total scam. I did a survey through Kroger Grocery Stores and received an offer to purchase the serum at just the shipping charges. It turns out that I was also signing up for monthly auto-shipments for the cost of $98.41. I called their customer service, was hung up on twice and then was told that I was ignorant for not reading the fine print on the order confirmation. That information was not provided when I did the initial purchase. I was told they could reduce all future shipments down by 80% to a cost around $19.00, but was also told they could not give me an 80% credit for what has been all ready charged to my credit card.

    Obviously if they can reduce the cost by 80% this product is not worth the $98.41 cost. I finally was able to contact someone to have the account closed out. He did is very best in arguing this is a good product and tried very hard to keep me for closing the account. I have also had my credit card account closed out so they can no longer access it with charges. If possibly I would give this company no stars.

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

    Scam

    I bought this product because it was advertised as a FREE product for only the cost of shipping and handling. In FINE PRINT way down at the bottom, which I did not see, it says that if you don't cancel, you will then pay $98.41 for a 30 day supply and the shipments automatically continue. To me, it is a scam pure and simple. When I called their customer service number they were no help whatsoever so don't think that there is any customer service. DON'T buy this product. By the way, I did start to use my free product and it is no better or worse than any other product on the market. No magic here, just greed.

    Scam

    • North Carolina,
    • Jul 25, 2016

    Total rip off. Free gift through Amazon and I was charged $98. Shipped the product back and disputed the charge on the credit card. Called Amazon and told them what happened so they are actually taking action on their end. Don't order or sign up for ANYTHING with this company. I wish I had seen the reviews first before doing it. BEWARE.
