About Crepe Erase

Endorsed by Jane Seymour, Crepe Erase is claimed to be a revolutionary 2-step anti-aging system that smoothes, firms, and lifts the dry, aged, and “crepey” skin on your neck, chest, arms, and legs. In fact, the product is claimed to be a “breakthrough body treatment” that gives users a chance to “be happy in your own skin.” That’s right, for $59.95 you have a chance to be happy with yourself! How empowering.

With this said, Crepe Erase is claimed to start working after just one use. And although there are no ingredients (other than TruFirm, which we’ll talk more about in a moment) listed on the Crepe Erase website, one HighYa reader emailed us to let us know it contains the following:

  • Shea butter
  • Cocoa butter
  • Olive oil
  • Beeswax
  • Dill extract
  • Apple extract

When it comes down to it, you’ve spent hundreds (if not thousands) of your hard-earned money on anti-aging creams in the past, with less-than-stellar results. But instead of doing this again, you’ve come here to find out whether or not Crepe Erase will work for you. Consider the following:

What Causes Crepey Skin?

Crepey skin is caused by a variety of factors that conspire to leave you with crinkly, sagging skin that resembles the texture of tissue paper. Crepey skin can appear just about anywhere on the body, although it’s most common on the neck, face, arms, and back of the hands—basically, anywhere that’s frequently exposed to the sun and other elements.

What Causes Skin To Appear Crepey?

As we age, our skin naturally thins as collagen and elastin production (two of the most common structural proteins in the human body) begins to slow down, which are responsible for (among many other things) supporting the extracellular matrix of your skin. In other words, the more collagen and elastin your body has, the more likely your skin is to look firm, supple, and healthy.

If you’ve been researching anti-aging products for long, you probably know that this is what leads to wrinkles, but it’s also the same process that causes crepey skin. Instead of forming deep wrinkles though, linear or diamond-shaped marks begin to appear between hair follicles, which slowly become more exaggerated as time passes, eventually giving off a tissue paper-like appearance.

Other Factors That Can Lead To Crepe-iness

While most people begin experiencing crepey skin soon after they reach their 40s, age isn’t the only factor. Just like wrinkles and other signs of aging, crepey skin can reveal itself after losing weight (there’s less fat remaining to plump skin and smooth out lines), years of excessive sun exposure, smoking cigarettes, eating a diet high in sugar, and more.

So, while creams like Crepe Erase might help improve the appearance of crepey skin (more about this in a second), you might get the most bang-for-your-buck by addressing some of these lifestyle factors first.

Can You Reverse Crepey Skin?

Just like any other signs of aging, once your skin turns crepey, there’s no turning back. However, you can temporarily minimize the appearance of your crepey skin using prescription retinoids along with other firming products, so we’d definitely recommend speaking with your dermatologist.

What about Crepe Erase, though? Will it really help address your crepey skin? Let’s dig in and find out.

What is TruFirm? Are Crepe Erase’s Other Ingredients Effective?

It appears that TruFirm is a proprietary ingredient featured only in Crepe Erase products, as there isn’t any information about it through third-party websites. Because of this, there’s no way to judge its effectiveness.

With this said, shea butter is an “off- white or ivory-colored fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree” widely used for its moisturization effects. Similarly, cocoa butter is a vegetable fat included in a variety of cosmetics, also for its moisturizing and antioxidant properties. As another fatty substance, olive oil is also used primarily for moisturization.

Beeswax is known for its anti-swelling and anti-inflammatory properties, dill contains chemicals that might help relax muscles, and apple contains acetic acid, along with vitamins B and C. However, according to WebMD, there is insufficient clinical evidence showing that any of these ingredients can reliably provide visible anti-aging benefits.

What does all of this mean? Overall, it appears that, like many other anti-aging and skincare products we’ve reviewed, Crepe Erase’s primary benefit is related to moisturization. And while this can certainly improve the appearance and texture of your skin if it’s dry, none of the ingredients contained in Crepe Erase appear to address the root cause of crepey skin (e.g. collagen loss).

As such, it’s probably the case that any results you’ll achieve from using Crepe Erase likely aren’t as revolutionary as the manufacturer claims.

Is Crepe Erase Clinically Proven?

Although Crepe Erase’s ingredients may not be effective for much more than moisturization, is the product itself proven to work?

In short, no. Although Crepe Erase’s website claims it’s “proven to provide visibly firmer, younger-looking skin,” there is no proof provided on the site, and there is no third-party confirmation of this.

Keep Your Emotions in Check

Perhaps because none of the product’s ingredients are proven to provide any anti-aging benefits, the Crepe Erase website uses a lot of wording intended to trigger an emotional response from you.

This includes playing off your emotions by calling aging skin “embarrassing” and “unattractive,” which is unfair marketing. In other words, no one should ever be shamed into purchasing a product.

Are There Other Options for Addressing Crepey-Looking Skin?

There is a wealth of information available online about treating “skin crepey-ness” using fractal lasers, as discussed by several plastic surgeons on this message board, or in this morning show interview.

Also, for those of us interested in changing the texture of our skin, but don’t want to go the route of costly procedures, facial and body massages are proven to increase circulation, which plumps skin naturally and feels really nice to boot! It’s also something you can perform on yourself at home… and for free.

Who’s Talking About Crepe Erase?

Although Crepe Erase’s trademark was filed in October 2013, there weren’t any legitimate online customer reviews available at the time of our research.

However, we learned that Crepe Erase is brought to you by Guthy-Renker, who also manufactures many other popular beauty and skincare products, including ProActiv Plus, Wen Hair Care, Meaningful Beauty, and X Out.

Based on 30 HighYa reader reviews for these products, they hold an average rating of 1.5 stars, with some of the most common complaints citing negative skin reactions, failure to work as advertised, and difficulties with autoship programs (more about this in the following section). Granted, this may not be what you’ll experience with Crepe Erase, although it’s important to keep in mind.

From a company perspective, Guthy-Renker holds an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, despite having nearly 280 closed complaints (as of 2/4/15). Most of these appear to reference the same concerns noted above.

Crepe Erase Pricing & Refund Policy

Crepe Erase is available in 2 purchasing options:

  • Introductory System: $49.95 plus $5.99 S&H per month. Includes Exfoliating Body Polish and Intensive Body Repair Treatment.
  • Maximum Results System: $69.95 per month plus free S&H. Includes everything in the Introductory System, in addition to Refining Facial Scrub, Restorative Facial Treatment, and Ultra Hydrating Body Lotion.

Whichever system you decide to purchase, your order will also include a free bottle of Advanced Firming Eye Serum, which is claimed to provide firmer, less crepey-looking skin around your eyes.

Important note: Your Crepe Erase order will also include enrollment in the company’s autoship program. This means you’ll continue receiving a regular supply of Crepe Erase once every 30 days, and your credit card will be charged accordingly. In our professional experience, autoship programs are often more about roping you into recurring charges than they are about providing any kind of convenience, so we’d recommend proceeding with caution.

With this said, Crepe Erase comes with a 60-day refund policy, less S&H charges, even if the bottle is empty. In order to request a refund or cancel your autoship enrollment, you’ll need to contact customer service at (800) 770-1886.

Can Crepe Erase Make Your Skin Look Younger?

Chopping to the point: Considering the lack of evidence showing that any of Crepe Erase’s ingredients can reliably provide you with any tangible, lasting anti-aging benefits, unless your skin is extremely dry, it almost certainly won’t provide an immediate lifting and firming effect.

On top of this, with so many red flags (such as claiming to be “proven” without backing it up, using negative emotions to sell their product, as well as mandatory autoship enrollment), this may signal that Crepe Erase contains more hype than substance.

    Not what advertised on TV by celebrities

    I have been using this product for two weeks now, and while my skin feels more smooth, none of the "crepiness" has disappeared. My skin is 78.5 years old and considerable "crepiness" on inner thighs, upper arms, back of hands and lower legs.

    My skin is very sensitive, and I have developed a red rash where I have used the Crepe Erase on my arms and hands and chest. I am going to stop using it and return, and I'd better get a full refund of the introductory price of $39.95.

    The tub of Intensive Body Repair Treatment has the consistency of shortening and dissolves very poorly. I have used other over the counter creams with better results for smooth skin. Lotions will soften the texture of my skin, but nothing will bring back the once youthful elasticity.

    The celebrities that were touting this product were in their 50's and early 60's. No one my age was advertising it and I see the ads on three or four TV channels almost daily.

    Do not purchase this product. You will be sorry.

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

    Don't waste your money. Very disappointing. I don't understand why these celebrities would lie about this product. They can't need money that badly.

    Buyer beware!

    • Wildwood, Florida,
    • Jul 15, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    First of all, this product doesn't work (at least it didn't for me), not any better than exfoliating my skin and then applying a good lotion from the drug store. A lot cheaper! Most discouraging is that apparently, I didn't read the fine print and signed up for regular deliveries and after the initial charge of $42, a month later I received another delivery, and the cost increased to over $80 (supposedly because it's a bigger quantity).

    I will return the second delivery, however, it's just a pain to have to do this. I typically read everything very carefully and cannot find the site I ordered from (I thought it was Amazon), but it didn't come up in my recent orders. I have nothing good to say about this product and further, believe it's a scam. Buyer beware.

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

    A big joke!

    This does not work. You can go to Trader Joe's and spend $10 on some coconut cream and have far better results. They are such liars. The lady today (in some foreign country) said she was sending a return label. She did not do it. Stay away from these people. I would say they are evil!

    It doesn't work

    • Indiana,
    • Jul 7, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I bought and used Crepe Erase for three months! Never did I see a change. I live in Indiana and the weather is brutal, but they promise results, period! I didn't get any in three months, although I spent over $200 and some in three months I've gotten a better feeling from products from my local Walgreens! Crepe Erase earned "don't waste your money!"

    Works well for me

    • Uniontown, PA,
    • Jun 14, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I received my initial shipment last month, and the next one is on its way at the full cost. I do see a difference. I like the scent.

    I am 47 years old and am just beginning to see some slight aging issues. I'm trying to slow down the aging process, if possible. I do realize that there will be no stopping it! I would recommend at least trying the introductory offer at the reduced pricing. A phone call to cancel or make a change to the next shipment is necessary from there though.

    I'm satisfied enough that I will likely try the eye or face serum on the next shipment, and it's also cheaper.

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

    Deceiving - and I'm being very nice.

    • Tulsa, OK,
    • Apr 20, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I ordered what I thought was an intro and now I find out I am being billed the $59.95 for THREE months. This is not how the product was represented, and I am beyond disappointed. I called to cancel, and even at that time, I wasn't told there would be two more charges on my credit card. The customer service people are still being deceptive, and I am beyond disappointed with this sales technique. I would NEVER have ordered a $180 item online.

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

      IT Cosmetics does the same thing with the auto order, but they do not tell you that in the introductory offer.

    Don't do it!

    The products were fair, I guess, but didn't work as portrayed on the infomercial I was sucked into.

    I returned the products and got my refund (for products that were initially thought to be "free"), so I think all is well. Six months later I start getting charges on my credit card. I have charges now for almost $130 for NOTHING!

    I have disputed the items with my credit card company, and I have learned my lesson, which is NOT order products from the television! I will only use products that I can purchase and pay for at my leisure.

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

    Bait and switch on TV ad

    • Roy, UT,
    • Jan 17, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    They use a bait and switch in their TV ad. I called for the $39 deal and was told that I had to sign up for monthly auto shipment. This was not stated on TV. If I did not want the auto ship, I had to pay $59 and with no free eye cream.

    They did not honor their ad! This should be a Federal Trade Commission violation.

      With all the negative reviews, it would seem appropriate that someone from the company needed to step in.

    Worst company ever

    • Monroeville, Ohio,
    • Jan 13, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I have used Crepe Erase for the last six months faithfully (which ran $59.00+ a month for the last six months) with absolutely no change to my skin. My old, over the counter skin product was much better.

    I called today to try to cancel the order, after already having the bill for this month. I was told I would be sent two more billings no matter what I did. Crepe Erase is the only thing on that credit card, therefore I am just canceling the card. I would not only NOT recommend this product to a friend, but I would not recommend it to my worst enemy!
