About Dermalay Face Serum

Dermalay Anti-aging Collagen Complex is a proprietary compound that’s claimed to provide advanced wrinkle reduction and prevention by boosting elastin production and elevating collagen levels within your skin. And by giving you an injection-free solution for younger skin that repairs years of damage, Dermalay Face Serum is claimed to attack wrinkles at the source, and to produce the same lasting results as professional procedures.

In order top accomplish this, Dermalay Anti-Aging’s ingredients are claimed to include:

  • Soluble Collagen
  • Water
  • Alpha-Arbutin
  • Euxyl PE 9010 (Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin)
  • Caesalpinia Spinosa Gum
  • Disodium EDTA
  • Ascorbic Acid
  • Citric Acid
  • Potassium Sorbate
  • Sodium Hyaluronate
  • Adenosine Phosphate
  • Argireline (Acetyl Hexapeptide 8)
  • Lycopene

According to the company, Dermalay Face Serum is safe and effective for twice-daily application, and can dramatically improve hydration and elasticity in as little as 3 days. With consistent use, Dermalay Serum is claimed to leave your skin healthier, firmer, and more radiant.

Based on all these claims, you might believe that Dermalay Face Serum really is a “facelift” or a “fountain of youth in a bottle.” But can Dermalay Face Serum help turn back the hands of time, or will it just turn out to be a waste of your hard-earned money? Consider the following:

How Effective are Dermalay Face Serum’s Ingredients?

Marketing hype aside, can Dermalay Face Serum’s ingredients really work as advertised?

Well, it depends on which ingredients you’re talking about. This is because soluble collagen has been shown to provide numerous benefits when injected, although there is insufficient evidence showing it can provide any anti-aging benefits when applied directly to the skin. Likewise, sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid) may be possibly effective for anti-aging, but only when injected. Adenosine phosphate is an important ingredient for cell function, although there is insufficient evidence showing that supplementation can provide any kind of anti-aging benefits, and arbutin (also known as Bearberry) is often used to lighten skin, although there are some concerns that it may cause cancer.

Outside of this, PE 9010 is simply a preservative, caesalpinia spinosa gum is a thickener/stabilizer, Disodium EDTA is typically used as a stabilizer as well (but may also provide foaming/cleansing properties), and potassium sorbate is an anti-microbial agent. Furthermore, there is insufficient evidence showing that ascorbic acid, citric acid, or lycopene can provide any kind of anti-aging benefits.

From a topical (e.g. applied directly to your skin) perspective, this really just leaves Argireline, which is a proprietary formulation of acetyl hexapeptide-3. This works similar to a non-prescription, topical form of Botox. The Dermalay Face Serum website provides a Chinese study that found “the total anti-wrinkle efficacy in the argireline group was 48.9 % (22/45), compared with 0 % in the placebo group,” although there is no peer-reviewed follow up available online confirming these results.

So what does this leave you with? Argireline is really the only effective anti-aging ingredient contained in Dermalay Face Serum, and its results are only temporary, which means you’ll have to continue using it on a daily basis in order to experience any benefits. On top of this, some online consumers have claimed that Argireline use can lead to sagging and/or discolored skin.

Can You Trust Retailers Selling Dermalay Face Serum?

In other words, can you believe that what they’re telling you is true?

As with ingredients, it depends; in this instance, on who you’re buying it from. This is because Dermalay Anti-Aging Face Serum is only sold through affiliates, who are often subject to very loose (if any) oversight by the manufacturer, so they’ll often make just about any claim they want in order to make a sale. On top of this, many affiliate websites simply copy and paste from one another when forming their online presence.

For example, the primary Dermalay Anti-Aging landing page indicates a 64% reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, while another landing page references 84%. Although we’re not informed where these numbers are coming from (clinical trials, focus groups, self-reporting, etc.), this likely means that these charts aren’t drawing from any legitimate sources, and are instead marketing hype. Also, you can see that the Dermalay Face Serum website is very similar in design to other anti-aging products websites, such as Luma HydrateAuraVie SkincareBellaVita Anti-Aging Serum, and La Dermanique, most of which appear to have received low marks from HighYa readers. Common complaints include failure to work and difficulty cancelling trials/autoship programs.

Other Concerns Regarding Dermalay Anti-Aging Face Serum

Speaking of trust, keep in mind that according to the Dermalay Face Serum website, the pictures shown are “Simulated imagery. Results not typical.” In other words, none of the before and after images are real, so they shouldn’t weigh in to your ultimate decision.

Also, the product’s website also claims that “the hottest new anti-aging trend to hit Hollywood is DERMALAY.” However, there isn’t any independent verification online showing that any celebrities have used or endorsed Dermalay Face Serum.

Dermalay Face Serum Pricing & Refund Policy

Dermalay Face Serum is only available via a 14-day trial. Here, you’ll initially pay $4.95 S&H for a 30-day supply, but will be charged the full $89.95 price after your trial expires.

At this same time, you’ll be enrolled in Dermalay’s autoship program, which means you’ll continue receiving a fresh supply every 30 days, and your credit card will be charged $89.95 plus $9.95 S&H each time.

Important note: As we’ve noted many times in the past, including in our Why You Should Avoid Autoship Programs article, it’s generally best to stay away from products sold this way. Why? Because it’s often the case that these selling methods are more about grabbing as much of your money as possible than they are about providing convenience for you.

Outside of the trial, Dermalay Face Serum is claimed to come with a 30-day refund policy. In order to cancel your autoship enrollment or request a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service at 855-924-3394.

Is Dermalay Anti-Aging Serum an Effective Anti-Aging Product?

Chopping to the Point: Although the Argireline contained in Dermalay Face Serum may help temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles, none of the serum’s other ingredients have sufficient evidence showing they can provide any anti-aging benefits. This, in combination with the trial and autoship program means that we’d recommend exploring additional anti-aging products before handing over your credit card information for Dermalay Face Serum.

    Complete Scam

    I ordered what I thought were 2 free samples of skin cream for just the cost of postage. Turns out, because the "samples" weren't returned within 14 days I was charged for them - over $200. There's no such thing as free samples. Fortunately, I saw the charge on my credit card immediately and have now canceled the "order" - an order I never made. A complete and utter scam. And to make matters worse, the cream is useless! For this product, I need a minus sign on the rating.

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

    Scam, do not buy.

    • Boston, MA,
    • Jul 31, 2015

    I wish I had read these reviews before getting sucked in. Lesson learned. Never again will I buy a product online.

    Like the others, I was ripped off for $95.00. When I called, they were very defensive - they have their script written for them and they will tell you they cannot help you. So, sorry sucker. I haven't even opened the teeny tiny bottles they sent.

    I am a senior suffering from cancer with limited funds. Nothing to them. Horrible experience. No stars whatsoever.

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

    Dermalay caused cancer.

    I used Dermalay around my eyes twice and a few weeks later I developed an irritation where Dermalay was applied. The irritation continued to get worse.

    I went to a dermatologist, who did a biopsy, found it to be precancerous and they operated to removed it. It took eleven stitches and an inch and a half scar.

    When I returned the sample, Dermalay refused to return more than $180.00. I plan legal action.

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

    Honorable Company

    This product reduced some of the wrinkles and bags under my eyes. However, my bags and lines are too deep for the results to be considered noticeable. I'm sure it would work better on those whose facial and eyes lines are not as deep as mine.

    The reason I gave them such high marks is because I let the Free Trial expire before cancelling. I contacted customer support after I found they had deducted the full amount of $84.95 from my account.

    Even though I had passed the 30 day trial, they still refunded my money within 3 days after I contacted them. My family, friends, and my banker told me I would never get my money back. I can't wait to tell them that not only were they wrong but, Dermalay is a reputable and honorable company. I don't need to tell you how rare that is these days.

    I recommend trying this product's free trial. Just don't forget to contact them before the 30 days is up if it doesn't work for you. The cost is very low when compared to other products of its kind.

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

    Not pleased with the results

    • Jul 15, 2015

    I did not cancel after 14 days so they charged me $84.95 and $89.95 in two days for their product. This is the price for not reading every word carefully before you order a trial product. I will never do that again. Thanks, Dermalay. I am not using the product because it made my skin dry and red. Expensive garbage.

    Dermalay product

    • Connecticut,
    • Jul 14, 2015

    This is a scam. I had the same issue as everyone above. I called my bank and I am filing fraudulent charges against them. When I contacted the company, they said they could credit me first $44 and then $50. This product is worthless.

    SCAM

    • Louisville, KY,
    • Jun 8, 2015

    Ordered the trial sizes of both face and eye cream but did not see anywhere that I would be charged $89.95 after 14 days. I moved and now have received a collection notice. Did try the product and noticed no difference - SCAM. Do not order.

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

    Do not order

    • Marin County,
    • Jun 1, 2015

    They will rip you off. I called and canceled my auto shipment and now I have a letter from a collection company. I never received a bill and the product and now have to deal with collection. Do not buy, rip off.

    Scam

    • Kanab, Utah,
    • May 23, 2015

    My daughters thought this was a trial and you received the creams to try. I guess they thought I needed it as a surprise gift of about $10.00. They used two of my credit cards and ordered two samples one night. Well their good intentions ended up costing me about $800.00 and a lot of my time trying to straighten it out. They finally refunded a small portion of it. Needless to say, it does not work. I get my eye and face cream from Puritan Pride. They both cost me about $8.00 instead of $200.00. They also work better. I tried the Dermalay for a month since I have it. I also have six unopened bottles that will go in the garbage. Please don't get caught up in this mess.

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

    Scam

    • New York,
    • Apr 22, 2015

    Make sure you're not buying their products as it's a total scam. I've ordered a sample and you pay $10 for shipping. They didn't send it and after two weeks, I called them and they reshipped it. They arrived very unprofessional without any notices that you have to send it back in 14 days. Then they charge you $90 for a serum and when I called it to cancel, Karina, one of the representatives, said products have been shipped. I asked to cancel everything as quality is terrible and makes your skin dry.

    I've been refunded only $45 because my product has been shipped already. It's been two months already and I still haven't received it. I had a hard time talking to supervisor as he said "I'm not sure how it works with your building to receive it, but we shipped it".

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

    Big scam

    • Vermont,
    • Apr 6, 2015

    I have been charged almost $200.00 AFTER I canceled. I did it through email and when I called, Andrea Lee said I had to call them personally. She offered to send me half my money back which I refused. I will fight this all the way. I guess I need to close my bank account now and open another one. Do not fall for this scam. It's a nightmare and the product DOES NOT WORK!
