About Dermallure

Dermallure is an anti-aging cream that’s claimed to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, repair and smooth skin, help maintain skin’s suppleness and elasticity, and counter the aging effects of stress. In fact, Dermallure’s manufacturer claims the product is better than Botox, and that it represents an “injection-free solution for younger-looking skin.”

On top of this, Dermallure is claimed to be clinically proven to provide an 84% decrease in fine lines and wrinkles, 95% increase in collagen production, and 73% decrease in the appearance of dark circles.

In order to accomplish this, Dermallure is claimed to contain a specially blended formula of “intelligent” ingredients such as proprietary Biosphere, QuSome delivery, Biofil spheres, and a face-firming peptide, all of which can help you look up to 10 years younger.

In order to begin using Dermallure, the company claims the process works over 3 steps:

  1. Wash your face with your favorite cleanser and pat dry.
  2. Apply Dermallure to your entire face and neck.
  3. Enjoy Dermallure’s “instant, incredible results!”

Sure, all of these benefits might sound fantastic, but once you get rid of all the marketing hype, is this really what you can expect using Dermallure? Consider the following:

Trial-Based Anti-Aging Products Are a Dime a Dozen

Most importantly, keep in mind that the market has become saturated with anti-aging products sold only through free trials over the past year or so, which is something we covered in our in-depth article titled Exposing the Widespread Scam of Anti-Aging Products & Free Trials.

While we’ll talk more about the details in the Pricing section, suffice it to say that any time you encounter a product sold only through a free trial (anti-aging or otherwise), your scam alarms should sound loudly.

Is Dermallure’s Ingredients Effective for Anti-Aging?

When it comes down to it, we’re not told much about the ingredients included in Dermallure, other than proprietary Biosphere, QuSome delivery, Biofil spheres, and a face-firming peptide.

This is because, outside of websites for trial-based anti-aging products like Dermallure, there isn’t any independent reference to proprietary Biosphere or Biofil spheres. Similarly, a “face-firming peptide” is extraordinarily vague and tells us almost nothing about what’s actually contained in Dermallure.

However, QuSome is patented skin delivery technology created by Next Step Lab that’s claimed to allow “active ingredients to become more efficacious and less irritating.”

In summary, while QuSome might help Dermallure’s ingredients enter your skin more effectively, we’re told next to nothing about exactly what these ingredients are or whether or not they’re suitable for anti-aging, which should be a huge red flag.

Is Dermallure Clinically Proven?

Despite not telling us exactly what it contains, Dermallure’s manufacturer claims that the product has been clinically proven to provide an 84% decrease in fine lines and wrinkles, 95% increase in collagen production, and 73% decrease in the appearance of dark circles.

However, no citations are provided for this study, and we’re not told exactly how these numbers were calculated (e.g. user survey, double blind trial, etc.). And considering how far these references would go toward boosting Dermallure’s credibility, it’s our opinion that these numbers are either grossly exaggerated or complete mistruths.

Dermallure’s Underhanded Advertising Tactics

In addition to not providing a full ingredients list and not backing up their clinical claims, Dermallure’s manufacturer resorts to some fairly underhanded advertising tactics, including:

  • Claiming that their product has been featured in national publications and popular networks, although there is no third-party confirmation of this.
  • Using the same before and after pictures, with the after image digitally enhanced to give the appearance of an anti-aging effect.
  • Claiming that Dermallure is an “amazing new Hollywood secret” and that it’s “Hollywood’s best kept secret,” although again, there is no third-party confirmation of this.

Arbitration Can Age You

Finally, keep in mind that all orders placed through the Dermallure website are subject to an arbitration agreement, which severely limits your legal rights—including becoming part of a jury by trial or class action lawsuit—in the event that you experience some type of damages from using the product.

Customers Don’t Seem Pleased with Dermallure

Other than websites intended to look real but are actually filled with hype from the manufacturer, we didn’t encounter many legitimate online customer reviews for Dermallure. However, we did find 2 different RipoffReport complaints that referenced problems with the free trial (more about this shortly).

Dermallure, based out of Norcross, GA, also held an F rating with the Better Business based on just 7 closed complaints (as of 7/3/15), three of which the company failed to respond to.

However, as we mentioned above, the market is flooded with these trial-based anti-aging products. In fact, the Dermallure website is essentially identical to many of the other products we’ve reviewed, including BellaVita Anti-Aging Serum, Vitalie Skin Care, Celloplex, and many others. And among hundreds of HighYa reader reviews, these products often come with very poor online customer reputations, including complaints of failure to work as advertised and difficult customer service experiences.

In our opinion, this means that many of these companies are using the same website template, or that many of these are the same products, just marketed under different names by the same company. As such, it’s reasonable that you could expect to experience much of the same with Dermallure.

Dermallure Pricing & Refund Policy

Dermallure is only available through a 14-day trial for $4.95 S&H, for which you’ll receive a full 30-day supply of the product.

Then, once your trial expires, you’ll be billed $94.96 for the full price of the product, and will also be enrolled in the company’s autoship program. This means you’ll continue receiving a fresh supply of Dermallure once every 30 days, and your credit card will be charged $94.96 plus applicable shipping each time.

According to Dermallure’s Terms and Conditions, outside of the trial, refunds are not available under any circumstances.

In order to cancel your trial, you’ll need to contact Dermallure’s customer service department at 866-297-9775.

Can Dermallure Help You Look Younger?

Chopping to the point: As you might expect, due to Dermallure’s:

  • Failure to provide a full ingredients list (and those we do know about have no third-party clinical evidence to support them),
  • Underhanded marketing tactics,
  • Ultra-high price, and
  • Availability only through a free trial and subsequent autoship program,

… it’s our opinion that Dermallure is a scam and should be avoided.

    Hoping I dodged the bullet!

    • Arizona,
    • Nov 16, 2016

    I am writing this review a few places.

    I am such an idiot! I ordered at 2 AM over the weekend. AFTER THE FACT, I researched and found these reviews. I contacted them and canceled and told hem that I was going to be refusing the shipment so I obviously did not use the product. I rescinded any permissions to charge my card. I was given a confirmation number for my records-

    But not before they offered: A 25% discount. I respectfully refused. Then, a 50% discount! No, thank you. Then a 75% discount! - No. Please just CANCEL, thank you.

    Wow! It is incredible to me that a company will "rape" people for that insane amount of money rather than just offer it at the 75% off price and be fair!

    I gave 3 stars at this point in hopes that they honor my cancellation and don't try anything sneaky.

    But it is because of you and these review sites that I was able to be educated in time (hopefully), so thank you.

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

    False Advertising & Scam Sales Tactics

    The Product was useless, it made my skin itch and I got an eye infection. I am more concerned with their Sales Tactics, which are totally underhanded and false, as described clearly on this page.

    My advice: DO NOT give them your credit card. they never divulged the 14 day trial period or any info.

    When you ordered, they hide behind social media and are the most underhanded, false, not to mention the extremely rude customer service reps. I have ever dealt with.

    The 14 day trial period is from the time of ORDER (not when the product is shipped or when you receive the shipment) and you have to return the product unopened. So how the heck do you try it? Total SCAM!

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

    Scam - Rip Off - Bad Products

    I ordered the 1 product (trial), put all my CC info in and before I could complete the order, it prompted me to try another product (same company). It didn't have a "no" prompt, and as I was completing my order, LO AND BEHOLD, I've now ordered 2 products. Received the products about a week later, used them for a few days, (with NO results). I called the company on the 15th day to cancel and was told it was the 16th day and since I had already opened the products, I could not cancel my current order, but could future orders. When I asked to speak to a supervisor, the CSR started reading her script: "All of our supervisors are busy as we have a high call volume." I said, "yea, from dissatisfied customers wanting their money back from you scam artists." I asked several times for a supervisor and got the same response. I've ordered from other companies before and the trial starts when you received the product as they track shipping. This is the most unprofessional company I've ever dealt with and I will make EVERY effort to bad mouth them on ALL social media sites.

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

    Dermallure Ageless Facial Serum

    Found the product ad from Worldjournal.com (Chinese word newspaper) with Dr. Oz recommendation. I ordered the product for believing his international reputation. They charged Free Trial with shipping cost of $4.95 for Dermallure Ageless facial serum, $4.95 for Skin Essentials. They charged me $94.90 10 days later. I had no problem cancelling the following product order. However, I did not see any facial wrinkle improvement at all with anything close to it being shown in "Dramatic Effects". I am deeply disappointed for believing a famous medical doctor who would do this type of a thing. Is he liable for false claims or recommendation? Now I know why he was and is in hot water-controversy all the time. I hope you will gain some benefit by reading my review of the products.

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

    scammers

    • South Carolina,
    • Jun 24, 2016

    They hide what exactly you're ordering in the terms and conditions. If you are not that curious you will never find it. There is no trial size. You cannot win no matter what. If you did ordered it and got charged, just dispute it with your credit card bank and call them together Do not agree on a small discount they give you. Next time you order something just Google the name of the product and add REVIEWS into search. Good luck and check your credit statements at least once a week.

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

    They are scammers

    • Lansing, MI,
    • Jan 5, 2016

    I ordered a free trial not knowing I was going to be sent more bottles. Two different bottles. I called the customer service. The man who answered was very rude which made me upset. He refused to give me a confirmation number which was to prove that he canceled any other orders. He refused to accept my request to return the box of two I had just received. He was going to put me on hold because I was so mad. I hung up before he did that. I called back and talked to a girl who I could not understand because of her accent. She did give me a cancellation number. She still would not agree to my request to send back the package I just received so I agreed to a discount. I know I should not have agreed to this, since they are scammers. It was not proven to me that it worked after using it.

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

      I had the same experience, and when I mentioned the word "scam" the representative on the other end laughed.

    Dermallure is a TOTAL SCAM - deceptive all around.

    Actual rating: MINUS 100. All of Highya's information on Dermallure appears to be 100% accurate. When ordering, one "accidentally" automatically orders a "second product" without meaning to. The fine print says one must cancel during the trial period, which is when that button on Order is hit, NOT when you receive the product. It's 10, not 14 days I believe. AND, you only get a refund for the return of an UNOPENED, UNUSED PRODUCT? How do you conduct a TRIAL if you don't open the product? All around, the ordering, advertising, guarantee and customer service is designed to trick, deceive and scam the person ordering out of HUGE amounts of money. Approximately $200 in fact, once that "trial period" is over. Don't even think about it!

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

    Scam!

    • Hemet, California ,
    • Aug 24, 2015

    Don't fall into this. Read fully and you'll see that you will be paying two installments of almost $100, and it will not be worth it. This made me behind on my account and affected my other bills. I tried to talk to them and he said I should of read the the small print, in other words, lesson learned and this was the first time purchasing a product online. Thanks for the bad experience and the product does not work!
