About Revyve Skin
Quick! Due to “high demand from recent media coverage,” the manufacturer can no longer guarantee their supply of Revyve Skin—an “advanced wrinkled reducer” that claims to eliminate the look of dark circles, reduce wrinkle depth, and help you achieve younger looking skin.
Using whole collagen molecules and a blend of other premium quality ingredients, Revyve Skin also promises to help moisturize and brighten your skin, for a smoother, firmer appearance. Overall, they claim elasticity will be improved, without surgery, injections, or other painful treatments.
When it comes down to it though, is there really any hurry to place your order? Has Revyve Skin received any media attention at all? Will it work as well as the company claims?
If this is your first encounter with online-only anti-aging products, you’re probably in for a big surprise. Stick with us and we’ll fully explain why we think you should be extra careful before handing over your credit card information.
What Ingredients Will You Find In Revyve Skin?
The only ingredient in Revyve that we’re told about is whole collagen molecules, which the company claims will “rebuild and rejuvenate” the skin. Since the loss of collagen (the most abundant protein in the human body, which provides underlying support for skin, among other things) is one of the main components of aging skin, it might make sense that applying more will help you look younger.
The problem is that very few things can pass through your skin, since it’s such an effective barrier at keeping the outside world “out.” So, even fragments of collagen won’t do more than sit on top of your skin until evaporating or being washed away, much less the whole collagen molecules supposedly found in Revyve Skin.
Only by looking closely at the packaging on Revyve’s website did we learn that it’s also supposed to contain an “advanced” argireline complex. Argireline is a proprietary ingredient manufactured by Lipotec, which is claimed to use a peptide that “relax[es] muscles responsible for the formation of expression lines,” and thereby reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Unfortunately, the company doesn’t provide any clinical research to back up their claims, although you’ll find argireline in hundreds (perhaps even thousands) of anti-aging treatments.
But lack of ingredients isn’t our only concern with Revyve Skin…
Is Revyve Skin’s Trial Offer a Scam?
Want the short answer? We think so.
Need more details? Basically how it works is that, for $6.95 S&H, you’ll be sent a 30-day supply of Revyve. This might sound like a solid deal, but what they don’t tell you is that once your trial ends, you’ll be billed $89.95!
Then, you’ll be enrolled in the company’s autoship program, which means you’ll continue receiving a 30-day supply of Revyve Cream once per month, and your credit card will be charged $96.90 ($89.95 + $6.95 S&H) each time.

Like most of these creams (more soon), the company claims you can call 844-REVYVE1 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel your trial or request a refund. However, the reality is that the process could be more frustrating than you expect.
Why? We’ll explain in the next section.
Why Reviews for Products Like Revyve Skin Aren’t Good
Over the years, the HighYa team has reviewed more than 220 anti-aging products and written dozens of articles, so we know a thing or two when it comes to online-only anti-aging products like Revyve Skin. And one of these is that—whether you’re talking about Erase/Repair HA, Neuology SynAke, Dermal Meds Serum, or the dozens of other products that use this exact same website template—they invariably come with low customer reviews.
In fact, customer complaints almost always reference one (or all) of the following:
- Failure to work. Based on the fact that these companies tell us next to nothing about the ingredients they contain, this probably comes as little surprise.
- High prices. Would you like to pay close to $100 for something that didn’t work? Probably not, and neither does anyone else.
- Poor customer service. In most cases, customer service personnel for these types of products aren’t interested in helping you get your money back. Often times, according to reviews from customers like you, they’ll hang up in your ear if they no longer feel like dealing with you.
Now, we’re fully willing to admit that Revyve Skin could be the one exception to the rule. Nonetheless, we think you should keep these common complaints at the top of your mind before placing an order.
Given all of this, what can you do when it comes to Revyve Skin?
Are There Better Anti-Aging Options Than Revyve Skin?
We already discussed the fact that collagen loss is one of the biggest causes of aging skin, but outside of the natural aging process, what causes this loss to occur in the first place?
There are dozens of causes of premature aging, including excessive UV exposure, smoking cigarettes, drinking too much alcohol, not getting enough exercise, too much stress, and much more. As a result, if you smoke, stop. Wear the appropriate sunscreen (and don’t forget sunglasses!), and be sure to reapply throughout the day. Eat right and get plenty of physical activity, and learn how to reduce stress.
Given the fact that you’ll be putting an unknown substance from an unknown manufacturer on your skin—and that you’ll pay a whole lot to do it—we think any of these options will provide more effective anti-aging results than Revyve Skin. Plus, most of these options are less expensive, too!
Did you place an order for a Revyve Skin trial? Did it arrive on time? Did you experience results? If not, was obtaining a refund easy, or a nightmare? Tell us about it in you’re your own review below!

Really bad company, they mislead the public with a free sample offer.
Ordered the alleged Christie Brinkley skin cream based on her interview with Dr. Oz. We were directed to this company. They promote a "trial size" of the cream for $6.95. There is NOTHING on the website that says you will be charged any more than that or put on "autoship" or that there is a "limited time trial" and that you will be charged later. After receiving two huge charges on our credit card I called to inquire and was told they had outlined all the terms in an e-mail when the trial order was placed. Never received the E-Mail! Even if we had the terms stated, if we didn't cancel before 15 days of the order we would be charged full price. The trial was not received until the 16th day after the order placement so the product could not even have been evaluated. I was told that due to high volume shipments had been delayed. I still had to pay for merchandise.
This Company needs to be investigated for misleading and bad business practices and placed with the Better Business Bureau.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Scam - don't fall for it
I thought I was ordering the Christie Brinkley skin cream based on her interview with Dr. Oz. Unsuspectingly I was directed to this company. They promote a "trial size" of the cream for $6.95. There is NOTHING on the website that says you will be charged any more than that or put on "autoship" or that there is a "limited time trial" and that you will be charged more later. But that is what they do! After being charged $276.70 (and you won't figure that out until you get your credit card statement - they don't include an invoice or any way to contact them when you receive the cream), I spent hours trying to resolve this and not that successfully. SCAM company. Don't let them take your hard-earned money.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
