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.

    Do not purchase from this company!

    These people are scandalous. They don't tell you anything about being charged two prices for shipping; a $4.95 charge and a $5.95 charge. Then they never said anything about charging me if I didn't cancel within the 14 days. On the packaging slip that comes in the box, it doesn't say anything about being charged or that there are no returns. Also, on my bank statement, it has two different company names and phone numbers (?).

    I called customer support, and the operators were very rude. I hope they get what they deserve; to be sued and we all get our money back. This just comes to show how ugly some people are and the lengths they will go to take money that isn't theirs.

    Do NOT purchase from this company! I wouldn't even give them a star.

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

    Deceptive advertisement and selling of products

    • Colorado,
    • May 6, 2017

    I saw the advertisement where an old man miraculously got his eye bug disappear in a matter of minutes. I got sucked into it and tried it for free. Unbeknownst to me, with its fine print and all that what has been agreed upon, you need to contact them before 14 days to cancel the automatic billing and shipment of product. I didn't see that coming, so got billed $89.95 and $39.95 respectively.

    The email that they sent for the trial order doesn't contain this information, and they don't have the courtesy to send another email that an automatic order is generated. They are very deceptive with their advertisement, and they are very sneaky with pushing their product.

    Their list of ingredients are also not good for the skin or could have an allergic reaction to it includes Cetyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Acrylamide/Sodium Acrylate Copolymer.

    Their packing list says "for all returns and cancellation please call our 24-hour customer care" but once you call them, they'll say product can't be returned. Another form of deception. So I can't return and can't get a refund.

    For those who are vigilant and have a good sense of checking out this product, you are on the right track of being informed.

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

    Stolen money from me

    After three phone calls for charges made for a canceled and NOT received product and still being charged money, they hung up on me all three times! Totally bogus; do not purchase.

    Don't fall for it!

    First, I would like to say that the product is no better than ANY product that you can get at any drugstore for MUCH CHEAPER. I say that because Bella lures you in by offering your first order for only $4.95 (which includes a $10 first order price reduction).

    What they do not make as clear is that they will automatically charge the card you used on your first order for $89.95 if you don't wait for delivery, try the product, call to cancel your account, AND return the unused portion to them within 14 days of placing your order! This actually gives you about 15 minutes to make up your mind whether you like the product or not!

    Don't become a victim like me. If you have an extra $89.95 to spend, bypass these crooks!

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

    Scam

    Wish I had read these reviews. Another victim. This company should be put out of business. Look at all the people that have been ripped off. My experience is the same as the rest.There is no such thing as a free trial. I have ordered from other companies who have offered a free trial for just the cost of the shipping. And I was charged if I didn't cancel for the upcoming order, which is fine if you like it and it does what it says and you don't mind the cost.

    This was not the case for me. There's no other way to look at it, it's a scam so stay away. If they say it's free trial then that's exactly what it should be. They should charge for the upcoming shipment, not the free one.

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

    Do not buy!

    • Virginia,
    • Apr 15, 2017

    Do not buy! The product does not work. In addition, they try to charge your account $95 after you get the sample. I was assured that I would not be charged. Then, when I called I was given a fake tracking number. They said they charged me because I received the product. I did not receive the product. I even repeated the tracking number back to make sure I had it right. I would leave zero starts if I could. Do not buy, do not get the free samples, they're not free.

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

    Over charging

    Over the past three years, I have been fighting oral cancer. It made me very depressed because I thought being a non-smoker and non-drinker it was I thought unfair. Eventually, I excepted it and when I saw an advert in a magazine for Bella Vita for the offer price of $29.99, I sent off for it to cheer myself up.

    I loved the creams, but then on my MasterCard statement I noticed the company had charged me $137.00. Wow. I have written to them four times now, and each time they come back with different reasons for the over charge.

    My depression is back.

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

    Definitely garbage

    I should have known better. Other reviewers were absolutely right. This stuff is crap and the service is terrible. The company does not stand by its products, which says it all. If it's too good to be true (ads), then it is, and Bella Gold is a great example. It is drying when used with other products. I'm using on calloused feet.

    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!

      Mary Sybrant

      I canceled my BellaVita order after paying the $98. Along with the BellaVita skin care product, I got a "free" hydroxyl eye effect. I have been getting a box with free "gift" enclosed, and it's the same ineffective eye cream. It comes with no receipt. Later, I come to find out that I've been paying $52.69 for this free "gift" that I just throw out because it's crap. I was told that I must have overlooked the fine print, but come on, it says "gift" enclosed.

    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.
