About Nu Beauty Serum

Chock full of phytoceramides, Nu Beauty Serum is an advanced anti-aging cream that can reduce wrinkles, soften skin, and provide you with a healthy glow.

Nu Beauty Serum even claims to have been scientifically designed to “restore your skin” and “make you appear much younger.” All using a topical non-toxic substance that has been shown to provide a 92% healthier appearance over the course of 28 days, along with an 84% decrease in wrinkle visibility.

Big claims! Especially from a company you’ve never heard of, and which you probably learned about through an online advertisement.

Does the manufacturer provide proof to back up any of these claims? Is Nu Beauty Serum a fresh approach to anti-aging, or just a new version of an old scam?

What Are Phytoceramides?

Ceramides are a “family of waxy lipid molecules” found in high concentrations in the cell membranes of animals.

Phytoceramides are the equivalent of ceramides, but are found in plants instead of animals. These plant-based ceramides largely remained under the public’s radar until they were featured on the Dr. Oz show in October 2012.

Since then, they’ve been touted as an effective ingredient in hundreds (maybe even thousands) of anti-aging products. But is there any legitimacy to these manufacturers’ claims?

Are Nu Beauty Serum’s Phytoceramides Effective for Anti-Aging?

In general, phytoceramides (derived from wheat) are thought to hydrate your skin, which boosts its plumpness.

The catch? There’s essentially zero clinical evidence showing that phytoceramides can accomplish this.

According to Truth In Aging, there is a 2011 study conducted by Hitex, “a company that makes extracts from wheat and other plants.” Clearly, the company has a vested interest in the outcome of the study. Although we’re not claiming this was the case, but when a company sponsors trials for its own products, it can skew the outcome in their favor.

To learn more about occurrences like these, be sure to read Think That Clinical Study is Legit?

The Nu Beauty website does appear to back up some of its claims by providing these links:

  • A 2000 study from Chungnam National University in Seoul, Korea showing that phytoceramides might reduce cell death in yeast.
  • A 2005 study showing the relationship between sphingolipids and ergosterol in yeast cell surface delivery.

In both of these cases, yeast was used as a test subject. Clearly, this doesn’t mean these same benefits would transfer to humans.

Alright, so there’s thin evidence that phytoceramides can provide any benefits. But from a price perspective, is Nu Beauty Serum worth giving a shot?

Nu Beauty Serum is a Trial-Based Product

The only way to buy Nu Beauty Serum is through the company’s 10-day trial. You’ll pay $4.97 to cover S&H and receive a 30-day supply. Think that’s the end of it?

After 10 days have passed (from your order date), what happens? You’ll be charged $139.97! You’ll also receive a new bottle of Nu Beauty once per month, and will be charged $139.97 plus $9.97 S&H each time.

Want to cancel your trial or automatic shipments? You’ll need to contact customer service at 855-511-2188. They also claim you’ll be able to get a refund within 30 days (less S&H charges and a 35% restocking fee), but we have our doubts. Why?

Online Reputation for Other Trial-Based Anti-Aging Products

Trial-based anti-aging products are all over the internet these days, including popular options like DermAktive, AbsoluteDerma, and La Bella Mystique. As we detailed in Exposing the Scam of Anti-Aging Products & Free Trials, these products come with very poor online customer reviews, which generally cite failure to work, exceptionally high prices, and poor customer service (stopping recurring shipments, cancelling trials, etc.).

We’ve even read dozens of instances where customer service was so bad, customers were forced to cancel their credit cards in order to put a stop to the recurring charges.

Based on the similarity between most of the websites for these products, we believe that they’re marketed by the same handful of companies. Once customers figure out what’s going on, they shut one website down, change the name of the product, put up a nearly identical website, and begin the “free” trial scam all over again.

Pro tip: Based on their similar site design and pricing/refund structure, it looks like Nu Beauty Serum is manufactured by the same company as Regenes Lift.

For these reasons, we generally recommend avoiding products sold only through trials and autoship programs.

Given everything we’ve learned, does Nu Beauty Serum break from the trend, or follow the rest of the crowd?

Is Nu Beauty Serum the Right Anti-Aging Product for You?

Up until this point, we’ve learned that 1) the phytoceramides in Nu Beauty aren’t clinically proven to provide any anti-aging benefits, 2) the cream is only available through a free trial (and a very high price afterward), and 3) features the same site design and overall business model as other less-than-stellar anti-aging creams.

As you probably guessed, this means we’d recommend visiting your dermatologist for more effective anti-aging advice, instead of ordering Nu Beauty Serum.

Before you do though, remember that the biggest cause of premature aging is excessive UV exposure, which can be reduced by choosing the right sunscreen. Additionally, you can make sure to get plenty of exercise, eat healthy foods, stop smoking and drinking alcohol, cleanse your skin properly, and more.

All of which will be more effective—not to mention cost much less—than Nu Beauty Serum!

  • Scam Alert

    This company is a scam, they'll charge you $100 but you get three sample size containers of "something" that's no better than Vaseline.

    I will be $95.00 poorer (they say they'll give me 65% back). Well, they better.

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

  • What a scam

    One evening online I stupidly ordered a free sample for just S&H for which I had to give them my credit card number.

    I did not check others reviews and did not see anywhere that this was a 14-day trial offer and that I would begin receiving additional bottles of this and another product that I did not realize I had ordered at a charge of about $95.00 each.

    The email address on the packing slip Naturalbeautyskincream.com is a bad email address and does not go anywhere. I have now been on hold at their 800 number for 15 minutes and the most annoying thing is the product made my skin break out.

    I have learned my lesson and will never again buy anything online from a pop-up ad without checking reviews.

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

    No Product

    • Louisiana,
    • Oct 20, 2016

    Never received any products, but was charged $94.95 and the serum was $93.89. I only draw $523.00 a month. Tried to tell them, but all they want is your last penny. The samples I got didn't do any thing, no change, except my money. The rating should be 0.

    I am not happy with the results. I have been using this product for 5 days now and have not seen a difference.

    I have used both products that I have ordered and I have not seen any results. What is this product supposed to do? I am still waiting. I have been using both products for a week now, and don't see any improvement. Please do not send me any more of your product. In fact, I would like to return this product and find something that works a lot better.

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

    Scam

    • Massachusetts,
    • Sep 18, 2016

    I don't even care about the product. I care about the way it is marketed. It came up as a quick pop up. It said to "Click Here" and get a $1 trial offer. I did. Then a second cream, same company, popped up. I thought I was deleting it but it went through as an order. Fine. Whatever.

    I got the 2 creams. 2 weeks later, I get two charges for $95 EACH. Apparently, there was fine print that I was ordering this cream every TWO weeks, nowhere did it say the price. I canceled my debit card.

    I call the company and was told by them, “Sorry, that's what you ordered”. WHAT? By the time I got to the bank to get a new debit card, I had been charged AGAIN. Every two weeks?

    They were KIND enough to give me 50% back, meaning out I am out two hundred dollars, for nothing. I am tossing the creams. I don't want to be reminded.

    This is a helpful and relevant review, just not in the way the company had in mind. I am going to blast this in every way I can.

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

    Horrible

    This product is not that good in the first place, I have had better for a quarter of the price. I emailed them and canceled. Then got a new bottle, didn't open it and the lady on the phone says they only sent me the first bottle, so there is no way they can take back the second bottle and refund my money. So I guess I got 2 bottles for the price of one, but I paid a big price even if I had ended up with 6 of them! Do not work with these jokers, there are much better and cheaper products out there that are trust worthy. I mean I canceled my subscription and they are claiming I didn't. A bunch of BS if you ask me.

    Nu Beauty Serum is a scam

    I ordered the trial size for a shipping and handling fee of $4.89. They ended up charging me 2 shipping and handling fees plus a fee for "insurance". Then 2 weeks later I had 3 different charges for over $90.00 each. The company changed the name it was charging me under, I guess to make it harder track. The names are Pre-Eye Serum, Face Cream, and Fresh Face. I did receive one bottle after my trial, but I called to send it back to get a refund, because I didn't want anything after the trial size. They gave me a RMA number to put on the package and I sent it back with the product at my expense, however the package came back "Refused".

    When I called them on it, they said they never got the package and never would have refused it. Fortunately I kept the tracking number to prove I had sent it. Now I am working with my credit card company to get all the fraudulent charges dropped. I had to cancel this credit card to make sure they would stop putting charges on my card. This has been a very stressful and upsetting experience! Do not ever buy from this company or any other company offering a "free" trial.

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

    Scam!

    This product is a scam. Make sure you read the fine print as they will automatically charge your credit card 14 days after you order their so called “free trial”. Do not buy this product!

    • Corpus Christi, TX,
    • Jul 29, 2016

    Don't do it. This is a scam, read the fine print. If you don't cancel, they charge a ridiculous amount of money for a product that does not work as advertised. This scam cost me $200.00 and "customer service" does nothing and does not care.

    Scam, they never say it\'s a 14-day trial!

    Be aware of these free trial things as they never advertise that it's a 14 days trial and if you don't call to cancel, them they charge your account automatically. And when you call them they are the rudest people ever! They say it's a non-refundable merchandise which I never even received. They charged almost $100 into my account for something I never ordered.

    I ordered a face cream which was supposedly $4.95 and they charged my account $68.89, then they charged almost $100 for the serum I never ordered nor received. I think they're rude people and very dishonest!

    DON'T order this unless you are ready to have recurring charges and a horrible experience.

    Can't even find the real name of the company. The only way I found out was switching cards and having their 3rd and 4th attempts decline. Now I'm having to fight. Of course, they are claiming I have agreed to terms of service (which had to have been hidden deeply in something). Horrible experience. Horrible customer "service". Sarcastic and rude.

    Product seemed mediocre at best.
