About Renew Derma
Renew Derma tells us that their advanced face and neck formula is scientifically formulated with “intelligent ingredients” to boost collagen and elastin production, trap moisture, and restore hydration.
As a result, they claim you’ll be able to reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines with Renew Derma, decrease the appearance of dark circles, boost your skin’s natural immunity, and eliminate dulling debris.
In the end? We’re told Renew Derma will deliver “advanced, dramatic results” and leave you with “radiant, beautiful skin that looks years younger.”
That’s certainly some good marketing! But will Renew Derma really replenish and rejuvenate your skin? Can you realistically expect it to “feel like a mini facelift”?
You’re here for information you can use to decide whether or not Renew Derma is right for you, and we’re here to deliver. Let’s start off by taking a look at how the skin ages.
What Causes the Signs of Aging to Appear?
The reality is that aging is extraordinarily complicated and there’s a lot the medical community still doesn’t understand about the process. However, some popular theories relate to damaged DNA from free radicals, telomere shortening, and more.
One thing that’s fairly well understood, however, is that as we age, our body produces increasingly less collagen and elastin, which are two of the most abundant proteins in the human body.
Perhaps the easiest way to think of these proteins is that collagen acts as a sort of framework (like the steel beams that make up the structure of a skyscraper), while elastin acts like a rubber band, allowing tissue—especially skin—to return to its normal shape after being stretched.
As a result, our skin loses its firmness and elasticity as we age, leading to wrinkles, dull and sagging skin, age spots (also known as dark and liver spots), and more.
How Do Renew Derma’s Ingredients Address the Signs of Aging?
To combat this, Renew Derma’s manufacturer claims their face and neck cream’s “intelligent ingredients” will boost collagen production, hydrate and moisturize skin, prevent damage caused by free radicals, and more.
The problem is that we’re not told about a single ingredient found in Renew Derma, so there’s no way we can learn what the medical community has to say about their effectiveness.
With this said, common ingredients found in these types of products (more about this next) include vitamin C, Trylagen, Matrixyl 3000, whole collagen molecules, and more.
The bottom line? After researching the available clinical evidence through publically available online sources, it’s usually the case that many of these common ingredients can boost moisturization. So, if your skin is overly dry, this could certainly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Outside of this, however, it seems like they might not deliver the level of benefits claimed by these manufacturers. After all, these ingredients would have to penetrate the skin to work as advertised, which the vast majority can’t.
Again, we can’t be 100% certain this is the case with Renew Derma, since the company doesn’t tell us about any of the ingredients it contains and we didn’t test the cream firsthand.
Why Are There So Many Products Like Renew Derma? What Can We Learn From the Reviews?
Take a browse through HighYa’s extensive anti-aging section and you’ll find dozens and dozens of products that aren’t just similar to Renew Derma—they’re essentially identical. This includes the same website templates, claims, vague (or non-existent) lists of ingredients, and more.
To see what we mean, compare Renew Derma’s website with this for JuvaLux Skincare, Aviqua, and Allegro Anti-Aging. Other than the name of the product and the pictures of their jars, these sites are basically word-for-word copies of one another!
Another big commonality between these template-based products is that they invariably come with ultra low average ratings here on HighYa (typically 1.5 stars or lower), as well as the same common complaints.
Like what? Most complaints seem to reference no results (many also claimed to have experienced side effects like redness and irritation), high prices, and unhelpful customer service.
Since Renew Derma is brand new without any online feedback yet, we can’t say you’ll experience the same with the cream, although based on their identical business model as these other products, it might be worth keeping in mind.
Speaking of business models, let’s take a look at what you’ll pay for Renew Derma.
How Much Does Renew Derma Cost?
A 30-day supply (30g) of Renew Derma can only be purchased through a 14-day trial offer for $6.95 S&H.
Money saving tip: When we attempted to click off the ordering page, a 70% discount was immediately applied, dropping the S&H to $1.95.
Then, after your trial ends, you’ll be charged the full price of $87.47. You’ll also keep receiving a new 30-day supply of Renew Derma once per month through their refill membership program and charged $87.47 each time.
Outside of the trial, no refunds are available on Renew Derma products. Also, according to the company’s terms (where the product is also referred to as Renew/Eye Serum and Eye Serum Plus), in order to avoid being charged full price, you must cancel at least one business day before it ends.
Effectively, this only gives you 12 days (from the date you placed your order, not the date it was received) to cancel, since you’ll need to call no later than the morning of your 13th day.
According to the company website, Renew Derma’s customer service department can be reached at 877-498-5939 or email@example.com.
What is an Arbitration Agreement?
All Renew Derma orders are automatically bound to an arbitration agreement, which limits your legal recourse in the event of any damages. This includes a trial by jury, becoming part of a class action lawsuit, and more.
Will Renew Derma Deliver Value?
Obviously, whether or not something provides value is based on hundreds of different intangibles (mainly personal preferences) that are unique to you. This means that what you consider a solid value someone else might consider a complete waste of money.
Taking a high-level view of the situation, though, we don’t know a single ingredient contained in Renew Derma, the company uses the exact same template as many other products that consumers are calling “scams,” and their cream is only available through a free trial.
Taking all of this together, if it was our money (after all, we shop online too!), we think we’d get a better value by making an appointment with a dermatologist, versus placing an order for Renew Derma.

I asked for the trial and just had to pay for shipping. I was at the hospital with my husband, came home later, and ended up with two packages. I called, but there was no answer.
I did not realize that I had to call and tell them I did not want any more, so they charged me eight times for a total of six small bottles. I have not used them, but they will not take them back and won't give me my money back. I am on a small income, they should not treat people this way.
I will never order anything again online. I will go to the store and look at it first, and pay for what I want, not what they send me.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Terrible customer service, product do not work!
Don't waste your money on this product. I have been charged $94.42 each month I received a shipment. You CANNOT return the product once shipped. What a scam!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
