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.

    Ineffective, plus scamming eye ointment as free

    I thought I had canceled this product five months ago. They stopped sending me the product, but I would get a box monthly with Hydroxacel Eye Effect, with a "free gift" in each and every box, with no receipt. This was an extra gift with the Bella Vita, and I did not cancel it as well, guess I should have.

    I called the company (well, no company name, just customer service). After much discussion, I will get two months' worth of payments back with two different RMA numbers.

    That is not good enough; I am going to my attorney general.

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

    What a scam

    This "high end" product is a complete fabrication! And to be charged almost $200 for two small containers of the product is a scam.

    I used it for a couple of weeks, and it not only left my skin still feeling dry, it put a strange bad taste in my mouth. When I told the representative that it made me have a bad taste in my mouth, the rude girl had the nerve to say "the product was not meant for your mouth ma'am!" Nice customer service there.

    I was also charged for two separate products (with separate company names) in my checking account, even though both products had the same company name on them (that raises a very red flag for me). I was just fleeced of almost $200.

    I would steer clear of this product and stick with a known reputable entity such as Obagi or Rodan and Fields. At least you can google these companies. I couldn't even find a number to reach BellaVita to cancel my trial offer until I was charged the full amount and had to contact my bank for the phone number listed on the transaction. My recommendation is to stay away!

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

    Misleading website, bad service.

    • Midwest,
    • Dec 17, 2016

    The website is misleading; it is very easy to order things you don't want along with the thing you do want. Then they refuse to cancel the order even if you call within 24 hours. All you can do is pay as much again to send the stuff back. Not the kind of business to encourage.

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

    SCAMMED

    I signed up for the free sample with $4.95 shipping, not realizing you have to DECLINE the other products in a tiny little box located below the "Proceed to Close". And then when I backtrack after realizing my credit card had been billed $34.95 I found out I had signed up for an automatic delivery of $98 worth of product monthly.

    I called my credit card company immediately and they couldn't help, same as others above, and I Googled Bella Gold and found this site. Will probably end up canceling this credit card and filing a complaint with my state Consumer Fraud division. Stay away from this company.

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

    BellaVita

    This is a scam. I ordered the free trial offer and was just to pay shipping on Instant Lift and Pro Collagen serum.

    Not my bill comes and I am charged the shipping plus $97.41 and $98.41 for these.

    I am not happy one bit with the results of this product and certainly not happy with these charges.

    Calling customer service is a joke also. If you ask questions and I talked to 2 people, they will say have a nice day and hang up on you.

    You are denied a chance to speak with upper supervision saying they have same policy.

    I Do Not recomend anyone to order these products. Junk.

    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.

    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
