About Raviderm

Raviderm is claimed to be an age-defying cream that uses peptides and natural ingredients to help promote collagen production and plump and firm your skin, which helps fill in deep creases and lines, decrease wrinkle depth, restore firmness, and prevent the re-formation of deep wrinkles. Because of this, Raviderm’s manufacturer claims their anti-aging cream is a “fountain of youth in a bottle” that can help you look years younger without the need for painful injections or expensive surgeries.

Raviderm is claimed to work for women and men with all skin tones and types, and to result in no side effects. According to the company, Raviderm should be applied twice daily, and that you’ll experience demonstrable results within 28 days of continuous use.

The fact that you’re considering purchasing Raviderm likely means that you’ve searched high and low for a solution to your aging skin, but might have been disappointed in the past. But is there anything noteworthy about Raviderm, or is it just another overpriced, under-performing anti-aging cream? Consider the following:

Is Raviderm Clinically Proven to Reduce the Signs of Aging?

Raviderm’s website doesn’t provide much information about the ingredients the anti-aging cream contains, other than Matrixyl 3000, which is a proprietary ingredient owned by a company named Sederma. According to the manufacturer, Matrixyl 3000 uses matrikines to “reverse the chronological ageing as attested by the regulation of senescence markers” and “reduce the cutaneous photo damage by restructuring the fragile network of the papillary dermis,” although there isn’t any readily available clinical evidence showing that this can have a significant impact in the appearance of your skin.

With this said, there are hundreds of products available online and at retailers near you containing Matrixyl 3000, including serums, lotions, gels, and creams, many of which are priced much lower than Raviderm.

Raviderm’s Marketing Tactics

Perhaps due to the lack of clinical evidence supporting their claims, the Raviderm website engages in tactics that are intended to lead you to make more of an emotional decision than an informed one. This includes claiming only 1,000 trials are given out per day (creating a sense of urgency) and claiming to be the “secret behind celebrities’ flawless skin” (if it works for them, why wouldn’t it for you?). We talked a great deal about the psychology of websites in our How Weight Loss Ads Convince You to Buy article.

In addition to this, many of the before and after pics featured on the Raviderm website are clearly the same image, with the after image digitally altered to mimic the disappearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In other words, by no means should you expect similar results from using Raviderm.

Affiliate-Based Anti-Aging Creams Are a Dime a Dozen

Finally, affiliates are independent contractors who earn commissions for each product sale they refer. Often times, these affiliates will have hundreds (or even thousands) of sites running simultaneously in order to “cast a wide net” and make as many sales as possible.

With this in mind, anti-aging products sold exclusively through affiliates (as well as trials and autoship programs, which we’ll talk more about next) have surged in popularity recently. Because of this, if you’re willing to roll the dice on one of these products, you literally have hundreds from which to choose, most of which make nearly identical claims. These include Crème Del Mar, Revival Beauty Serum, BellaVita Anti-Aging Serum, AbsoluteDerma, and many more.

How Pleased Are Other Raviderm Customers with Their Purchase?

Raviderm appears to have only recently been promoted by affiliates, as there were no online customer reviews available at the time of our research.

Speaking of which, many affiliates will post fake customer review websites that are made to get you to think you’re reading about someone’s actual experience with the product, which it’s really just more sales material.

With this said, based on dozens of HighYa reader reviews for the affiliate-based anti-aging products noted in the previous section, nearly all have 1-star reviews, with common complaints citing failure to work, extraordinarily high price, and difficulty cancelling trials. Granted, this may not be what you’ll experience with Raviderm, but it’s important to note these types of complaints are almost unanimous across all affiliate-based anti-aging products.

However, we did learn that Raviderm appears to be manufactured by AM Health Ltd. Based out of Kidlington, UK, although there isn’t any additional information available about the company online.

Raviderm Pricing & Refund Policy

Raviderm is only available through a 12-day trial for $4.99, for which you’ll receive a full 30-day supply, and which begins on the date your order is placed. Keep in mind that when attempting to checkout, we were advised it would take about 5 days to receive Raviderm, which would only have given us a week to test it out before needing to call and cancel.

After your trial has expired, you’ll be billed $99.15 for the full price of the product. At this same time, you’ll be enrolled in the company’s autoship program, which means you’ll continue receiving a new bottle of Raviderm once every 30 days, and your credit card will be charged $99.15 each time.

Important note: According to Raviderm’s Terms & Conditions, you can request a “reasonable” extension to your trial, so if you’re unexpectedly billed for the full price, be sure to ask and find out if the charges can be reversed. Also, as we’ve mentioned many times, it’s our professional opinion that products sold only through trials and autoship programs might best be avoided, as they’re often more about getting as much of your money as possible than about providing you with convenience.

With this said, outside of the trial, Raviderm comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges. In order to request a refund or cancel your autoship enrollment, you’ll need to contact customer service at 800-481-2609.

Can Raviderm Really Reduce the Signs of Aging?

Chopping to the Point: Given the:

  • Lack of information provided about the ingredients contained in Raviderm,
  • The manufacturer’s less-than-stellar marketing tactics, and
  • The almost wholly poor online reputation of other affiliate-based anti-aging products,

…it’s our professional opinion that Raviderm’s very high price is likely far out of line with any benefits you can realistically expect to achieve from using it. Because of this, we’d recommend saving your hard-earned money.

    Total Scam! Stay Away.

    • San Francisco,
    • Oct 9, 2015

    I somehow got sucked in. All the reviews in here are accurate. They trick into a trial and then you can't get out. Tricky even on how it's characterized on your credit card. I was even charged more than the $99.95/month and no explanation.

    Sketchy help on the 800 number too, with NO email follow ups of any kind. STAY AWAY! I can't believe I was this stupid to engage with these folks.

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

    Raviderm & Puravol

    • Los altos, CA,
    • Sep 23, 2015

    I have not found any benefit so far. Be sure you read the fine print as you are charged a huge amount monthly for the products that they keep sending you. I could not find the ad that I purchased the product from that gave me the conditions of the purchase until I found it under a police warning. Be careful as you will be charged monthly at an enormous amount.

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

    Product and handling

    • New York, NY,
    • Aug 29, 2015

    This product is horrible! I am highly allergic to it. And they knew it and the last two months they charged my card and refused to take the product back (using a third party to mail this crap). This product doesn't work, a complete waste of money.

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

    Scam

    • NY,
    • Aug 11, 2015

    This is a hold up of your 200.00 in broad day light. SCAM. It was advertised that it is a free trial, shipping was charged without them sending the product. After 2 weeks I followed up by sending a message, then product was delivered and I was charged full price right away, not even 12 days have passed.

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

    Raviderm

    • Alabama,
    • Jul 22, 2015

    I bought both products Raviderm and Puravol. I've used it almost everyday. I cannot tell a lot about it. I feel a tingling sensation when I first apply it. I canceled my order and going to stick with Merle Norman's age defying products because they get rid of dark circles immediately and wrinkles. There're two anti aging eye complex. One for the eyes and one for the face and they really truly work. And they are both around $100 for two. I will never buy this Raviderm again, waste of my $100 bucks.

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

    Raviderm, Puravol

    • Dallas, TX,
    • Jun 23, 2015

    This is a total scam. I purchased the "trial " products and was charged almost $100 within 7 days of receiving the products. Once they were opened, they were not returnable after the 12 day trial. Then I received another shipment 30 days later. I called and found out I was on an "auto-shipment" program. I checked my email and noticed I did not have any documentation of this trial program and reference to an auto-shipment.

    After calling customer service, the best I could do was cancel the auto shipment but still had to pay nearly $200 for the "trial" products. This is a total scam and these products are not worth it. Lesson learned!

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

    Raviderm Scam

    • Knoxville, TN,
    • May 18, 2015

    I haven't even used this yet, but I signed up for a free trial and in under a month my credit card was charged nearly $100. If I can find where to get this taken off, I'm going to. This IS NOT a free trial as suggested.
