About Nova Derm Eye Cream

Nova Derm Eye Cream is a new anti-aging product that’s claimed to reduce and eliminate wrinkles, promote collagen production, and to plump, firm, and rejuvenate your skin without expensive surgery. In short, Nova Derm claims their Eye Cream can provide you with younger, more radiant skin.

According to the product’s website, with twice daily application, the peptides in Nova Derm Eye Cream have been shown to result in an 84% decrease in fine lines and wrinkles, a 95% increase in collagen production, and a 73% decrease in the appearance of dark circles. While there isn’t any time period listed for this study, the company claims you can expect “demonstrable effects within 28 days of first use.”

Sure, there are a whole lot of positives about getting older, including becoming more confident in who you are and realizing what you want in life. However, the biggest downfall is watching as your skin sags and lines and wrinkles appear.

But can Nova Derm Eye Cream slow this process, or will it take your money and leave you with even more wrinkles from all the stress? First, let’s discuss common causes of aging.

What Causes Premature Aging? Is It Preventable?

There are a wide variety of factors that lead to premature aging, including genetic and lifestyle factors. This includes excessive sun exposure, smoking and alcohol consumption, the foods we eat, the amount of exercise we get, and much more.

You can’t do much about your genes, but you can reduce premature aging by changing your habits. This includes limiting your exposure to sun (and choosing the appropriate SPF), stopping smoking and drinking alcohol, eating a well-balanced diet, exercising regularly, getting plenty of sleep, and moisturizing your skin.

With this in mind, is there anything in Nova Derm Eye Cream that can address the causes of premature aging?

The Efficacy of Nova Derm’s Ingredients

There wasn’t a product label provided on the Nova Derm Eye Cream website, and the only ingredient we’re told about is peptides.

However, a peptide is simply a “biologically occurring short chains of amino acid monomers linked by peptide (amide) bonds.” There are many, many peptides in existence, so this ultimately tells us next to nothing about what’s actually contained in Nova Derm.

According to SheKnows.com though, some of the most common peptides found in beauty and anti-aging products (which we’ll talk more about shortly) are collagen stimulating peptides, such as Matrixyl, and neuropeptides, such as Argireline. In either instance, these proprietary products have insufficient third-party clinical evidence showing they work as advertised, although some consumers swear by them.

Regardless, this is all based on speculation, and there’s no way to know exactly which ingredients Nova Derm Eye Cream contains, how much it contains, or whether or not this is enough to be effective.

Now, as we briefly mentioned above, let’s find out if there are any other products out there similar to Nova Derm.

Nova Derm Eye Cream Alternatives

Are there similar (or nearly identical) products to Nova Derm? Absolutely. Do we necessarily recommend any of them. No. But why?

We’ve reviewed dozens of anti-aging products here at HighYa, including popular options such as DermAktive, Nuvie Skin Care, Cellumis, and many more. What do these have in common? They all have average reader ratings of 1.5 stars, with common complaints citing failure to work, high price, and difficulty cancelling trials and autoship programs (more in the Pricing section).

And based on our experience, you can reasonably expect to experience much of the same with Nova Derm.

Before moving on, let’s quickly talk about the state of the online-only anti-aging industry.

When Buying an Anti-Aging Product Online, Beware

We’ll cover some more of the fine details in the next section, but keep this in mind: the HighYa team has watched as hundreds of online-only anti-aging products have entered the market over the last couple years, and as we noted above, most come with very poor online customer reputations.

But the good news is that there are some key features you can use to immediately discern which products are worth your time, and which ones should be avoided at all costs.

First, if you encounter an anti-aging products that claim to:

  • “Rejuvenate your skin without expensive surgery” (like Nova Derm),
  • To be “better than Botox,”
  • To help you “look 10 years younger,” or
  • To be “Hollywood’s best kept secret,”

… immediately click away. Why?

Because these are indications that the product’s manufacturer is using a well known website template to sell their creams and serums, which are thought to be the same product, with only the name changed. As such, once the public catches on that they’re scams, the company simply rebrands the product and quickly sets up another website using the same template.

For an in-depth look at this, read through our article titled Consumer Alert: Avoid These Anti-Aging Websites Like the Plague.

Second, any time an anti-aging product is sold only through a free trial and subsequent autoship program (again, like Nova Derm Eye Cream), this is another important indication you should step away. Granted, this is only the tip of the iceberg, so for more information, check out Exposing the Widespread Scam of Anti-Aging Products & Free Trials.

Given all of this, if you’re still interested in Nova Derm, how much will the cream set you back?

Nova Derm Pricing & Refund Policy

The only way to purchase Nova Derm Eye Cream is through a free trial, where you’ll pay $4.95 S&H and will receive a full 30-day supply of the product.

After 14 days have passed, you’ll be billed the full price of $89.94, and will also be enrolled in the company’s autoship program. As such, you’ll receive a new bottle of Nova Derm Eye Cream once every 30 days, and your credit card will be charged $89.94 each time.

According to Nova Derm’s Terms, after the initial trial has expired, no refunds are available. In order to cancel your trial or stop your automatic shipments, you’ll need to contact customer service at 877-348-3844.

A Quick Note about Nova Derm’s Arbitration Agreement

An arbitration agreement is a “contract in which you agree to bring any legal claims you may have against your employer to arbitration, rather than filing a lawsuit in court.”

For example, if you experienced any damages from using Nova Derm Eye Cream, you wouldn’t be able to become part of a jury by trial or class action lawsuit. Instead, you’d have to meet at a place of the company’s choosing, and sit down with their representatives to decide how much (if any) money you’re entitled to.

In most instances, the arbitration process heavily favors the company and not the consumer.

The Bottom Line about Nova Derm Eye Cream

At this point, you probably already know how we feel about Nova Derm Eye Cream, as well as most of the products within the online-only anti-aging industry.

However, to put a fine point on it: Since we know next to nothing about the ingredients contained in Nova Derm; the manufacturer uses many of the same tactics featured in other less-than-stellar products; and it’s only sold through a free trial, it’s our opinion that Nova Derm Eye Cream is a scam. As such, we’d recommend avoiding it altogether and speaking with your dermatologist about more effective options.

    It is a Scam

    Ordered a 14 day trial and have been charged for items I did not want or ordered. Within 1 hour of my order I have been charged 4 times on four different transactions I did not order. I have been on hold with their customer service for over an hour, and after I spoke with one young lady about it. She hung up on me and when I called back, I am again holding over an hour.

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

    Scam

    • Las Vegas,
    • Jul 29, 2016

    I ordered the fee trial, canceled with in the terms and was charged 99.15. I have had four conversations, which are recorded, with various entities at this company, all of who assured me I would be getting a refund since it was supposed to be canceled. I have not gotten anything refunded as of yet. It has been 3 weeks. These people are a rip off, run as fast as you can! I am by the way taking my little recorded conversations to an attorney and filling a lawsuit against them.

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

    Fraud

    • Washington,
    • Jul 15, 2016

    This company is committing fraud daily. They claim on Facebook that you can receive a free trial bottle of their product by paying only for shipping, without saying anything about you needing to call any number or being obligated to any commitment for more shipments. Except that they then take your money without your permission on your credit card that you gave them for the shipping payment. Now I have been charged $89 for a new bottle which I did not authorize. But when I call them they claim I did agree to being charged and they will not give me back the money. I then called my bank and had my card canceled but they already took my money and their is no way to get it back. I turned them into the fraud department, but then it has to be disputed and can take up to 10 days for the bank to return the money if they agree to it. Yikes. This company is making bank and getting away with it. I could here in the background when I called customer service that all the calls they get are from people complaining about them taking unauthorized payments off of people's card. It's just fraud. Also all over the internet is complaints of the product being fraud as well. I wish I had done my research before saying they could charge me for the shipping, which was $4.95.

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

    Scammed

    • Texas,
    • Jul 8, 2016

    This Nova Derm Eye Cream online sale is a SCAM and a shame before God. I just opened my account and found out that I have been charged $89 for a jar of cream that I haven't even opened. Yes, I was not attentive and clicked yes to the terms and conditions. Yes, I should have been more aware. And YES, clearly Nova Derm does this crap and makes hand over fist money from people like me who were not attentive and thought that it was a good deal. Such a shame that this is what we have come to. SCAMMING folks. Instead of a $5 cream I have an $89 cream that I have yet to use and I'm sure is probably as effective as friggin' Pond's Cold Cream. I am furious at myself and these hacks. SHAME.

    Returns

    Do not buy. They send the product, which is no different than any other OTC product, and then charge you $98. I was told I would be refunded if I returned the product. I checked on my refund and was then told I would not be receiving a refund because the product was open. Now why would I pay shipping to return a product I am not satisfied with and NOT get a refund? The customer service rep just said that is their policy and hung up on me.

    Should Not Be Able To Operate Their Business

    A few weeks ago I fell for this scam, it was on one of those Facebook offers, Christie Brinkley or Dr. Oz or someone. It said $14.95 for shipping and I could have this free trial. I thought I was ordering eye cream and face cream from the same company - as it turns out apparently not one company. Face cream was Revivasol and the eye cream was NovaDerm. I called Revivasol and talked with a woman who said no problem, cancelling it.

    So I thought it was over. But no. Yesterday I received a package from NovaDerm which I have not opened. I called and talked with a very snippy person Gabriel, who apparently has no last name. He said that on the website it CLEARLY states that if you do not cancel within 14 days they will automatically bill the credit card $89.95 per month. I told him that there was no such detail from the Facebook ad and web site I ordered from and that I can read.

    We went round and round and got no where with this snip. I finally hung up the phone.

    So, at this moment I have the following charges: Dream Skin for $89.94 on 4/28, Radiant Creations for $89.95 on 4/4, Radiant for $1.79 on 4/4, and Dream Skin for $89.94 on 3/31.

    Very clever of these companies to take advantage of the public. I am not through yet. Thieves!

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

    No return. No refund.

    • WI,
    • Apr 27, 2016

    I called customer service and there is no return/ refund on this product, even though it caused angioedema of my face and neck. The company basically did not care. BEWARE! I would never order from them again. They don't stand behind their product.

    Products suck, and so does the customer service!

    • Massachusetts,
    • Apr 2, 2016

    I ordered the 14 day sample, used it, and had a very bad reaction, which caused me to have to go to the doctor. I contacted customer service, but they could have cared less, and charged my credit card account $89.84 for a 30 day supply of something I could not use. DON'T order it. They like taking money from people, and when I asked to return the product, they refused to take it back because I was a few days over the 14 day trial period.

    The product sucks, and so does the customer service reps. Buyer BEWARE.

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

    Product does not work and the customer service is horrible!

    • Chester, VA,
    • Feb 26, 2016

    My husband of 40 years and I are renewing our wedding vows later this year. I saw this product on the Dr. Oz show and thought I would try it, maybe help me to look at little younger on that special day. The product did not work. I called to cancel the product and was told that I was too late. Apparently the 14 day trial started from the day I ordered it, included the 4 days it took to receive it and then 10 days to try it out. I was hung up on 3 times as I tried to understand how that could be possible! One "representative" told me that sometimes it takes as long as 30 days to work. How would I ever be able to find that out if I have to let you know in 10?

    I asked to speak to a supervisor on my first call and was told that the person I was speaking to could help me, so there was no need. When I insisted, she hung up on me. The next person did the same. The last person said she would request a supervisor, but there was no obligation for them to take the call! What?? I work in retail and I can tell you if someone asked to speak to my supervisor and I gave that answer, not only would I lose my job, but my company would be horrified!

    I then wrote to the customer service email that came with the product which stated that "our customers are very important to us." I received a reply back from "Jimmy" no last name, title or anything which again said nothing they could do to help me.

    For $100 a pop, I would think a company would stand behind their product and offer a money back guarantee no matter when you request it. These people saw me and others like me, coming. They are taking customers money left and right and they need to be stopped!

    DO NOT order this product! It does not work and their customer service is awful! They are running a scam and they need to be shut down.

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

    Nothing but a scam.

    • Lincoln, Nebraska,
    • Feb 10, 2016

    This is a total scam. Got the sample product okay. There was no instructions, just the product. Used for a week and saw no results, having instructions might have helped, but I doubt it. Anyway, I called to cancel on the 12/28/16, fully within the 14 day trial period. About the same day I called to cancel, I received a full order of the product. I called again and was assured that was a mistake and was given a return material authorization and returned the product on 12/28/16. I returned the product via UPS. Well on the 01/22/16 I received another shipment of the product. I called again on the morning of 01/25/16 and was assured again that it was a mistake and that no charges had been made on my account. On the evening of 01/25/16 I received my credit card statement and I was not credited for the first order, and there was a 200 dollar charge for the second order, which I didn't not authorize. I called again on the evening of 01/25/16 and was assured that I would be getting a credit, for which I'm sure will never happen. I called this morning and canceled my card. This is a total scam, no doubt about it.

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

    Do not order the free trial.

    • Feb 4, 2016

    You can order this product ONLY through the free trial. If you do and time passes and you do not want it, that is too bad. I did not find this product to perform as advertised. 14 days is not long enough.
