About Vita Luminance

Vita Luminance claims to be a peptide rich wrinkle serum whose breakthrough formula can rebuild and rejuvenate skin, brighten skin’s appearance, increase firmness, reduce wrinkles, and eliminate the look of dark circles. How?

According to the company, all of this is accomplished by delivering whole collagen molecules to the skin, versus the collagen fragments provided by other anti-aging creams. This way, Vita Luminance will enhance your skin’s hydration, counter the effects of stress, and help you “achieve visibly younger looking skin.”

But ask yourself this: Are all these big claims backed up by science, or do they amount to little more than marketing hype? And even if Vita Luminance worked anywhere near as well as the manufacturer claims, is it still a wise use of your hard-earned money? Let’s explore all your important questions by starting with the basic building block: collagen.

What is Collagen? What Role Does It Play in Aging?

Collagen is a super-abundant protein that’s concentrated in skin and connective tissue throughout the human body. Not only is collagen the most abundant protein in humans, but it’s also the most abundant protein in the entire animal kingdom.

Collagen is so concentrated in these regions because it packs “together to form long thin fibrils.” When these fibrils join together, they create a strong triple helical structure that act as a type of latticework to provide support.

The problem is that, as we get older, our body begins producing less and less collagen, leading to traditional signs of aging like joint problems, wrinkles, and sagging, lackluster skin. Given this, it makes sense that applying Vita Luminance’s collagen-containing serum will make everything better, right?

Does More Collagen Result in Younger Skin?

As we detailed in Can Cosmetics Really Penetrate Your Skin, your skin acts as an effective barrier between “you” and the outside world. Without it, you’d basically absorb everything you came into contact with (including the air), which means you probably wouldn’t be around for too long.

Sure, this is great, but it also means that you can’t just apply whatever beneficial ingredient you want—like collagen—and expect miraculous results in a matter of minutes. Just like the bad stuff, it can’t absorb through your skin.

If fragments of collagen won’t make their way through your skin, ask yourself this: Since Vita Luminance claims to use whole molecules, wouldn’t your skin be even less likely to absorb them? After all, aren’t whole molecules larger than fragmented ones?

Either way, since this is Vita Luminance’s main claim to fame, we think this is a big strike against the serum’s efficacy. But in our opinion, it’s certainly not the only strike, which we’ll talk more about next.

Should You Sign Up for Vita Luminance’s Trial?

The only way to purchase Vita Luminance serum is through a 14-day trial, where you’ll pay $4.95 upfront to get a 30-day supply. Sounds like a deal, right?

What the company buries in the fine print and Terms is that after your trial ends, you’ll be charged $97.81! You’ll also keep receiving a new bottle of Vita Luminance once per month through their autoship program and charged $97.81 each time!

Outside of the free trial, Vita Luminance comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges. In order to request a refund, you’ll need to call customer service at 800-878-9702.

Pro tip: In general, we recommend staying away from products sold only through free trials, which, in our opinion, is another strike against Vita Luminance. Why? The vast majority come with ultra-low customer feedback—especially surrounding difficulty canceling trials and autoship programs. We’ll talk more about this next.

Products Like Vita Luminance Come With Low Customer Feedback

Vita Luminance was brand new at the time of our research, without any online customer feedback yet. But, the reality it that it’s probably not even necessary. Why?

Try this: Quickly, browse through the Vita Luminance website if you haven’t already. Then, pull up the websites for Vskin Active, VitaYouth Cream, Nouvebelle, and Dermal Meds Serum (we could go on, but you get the point). Notice anything? That’s right, they’re exactly the same! What’s going on?

Based on our research and customer feedback, we think a lot of these online-only anti-aging products are manufactured by the same handful of companies. Once too many negative reviews accumulate, they close one website and immediately relaunch another using the same template, changing only the product name and picture. Why do they do this?

Again, according to thousands of customers like you, it seems like the sole purpose of these companies is to get ahold of your credit card number and charge you as much as possible. To do this, they’ll often make canceling trials and automatic shipments next to impossible, in the hopes you’ll just give up. And for the pleasure, they’ll charge you an arm and a leg and give you very little in return.

For more about this tactic, be sure to read Avoid These Anti-Aging Websites Like the Plague.

Now, it’s important to reiterate that we didn’t come across any legitimate customer feedback saying this was the case for Vita Luminance. But based on the fact that it sports an identical website to many of the other less-than-stellar products we’ve reviewed, we’d certainly recommend keeping it in mind.

Should Vita Luminance Be a Vital Part of Your Beauty Regimen?

We’ve covered a lot of ground in this Vita Luminance review, but here’s what we’re left with: an unknown product consisting of unknown ingredients; one that’s only available through a “free” trial; and one that uses an identical template to other iffy anti-aging products we’ve reviewed in the past. Does this sound like a good gamble with your hard-earned money?

Ultimately, this is something that only you can decide. However, before submitting your order, we’d recommend getting another opinion about Vita Luminance from your dermatologist. After all, if you’re looking for value, they’ll be able to offer treatments with some of the most visible results.

  • A worthless scam with unauthorized charges

    I saw the ad on the internet. I called. They told me that the product would cost me $4.95 and there would be no further obligation. They kept sending me more and more of this worthless cream, while I wanted to get in touch with them, the box came from a fulfillment center, with no email address. I wrote to their mail address but received no response. Finally, one box arrived with a telephone number and I called. I discovered that they were CHARGING ME $97.50 each month, when all I had agreed to was one $4.95 charge with no further obligation. Don't buy this product. It does not work, and they are fraudsters for having sent product that was not ordered and used a credit card number meant to be charged for $4.95 to charge me $500.

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

    A bad product and a rip off.

    I had a bad feeling when ordering this product. I knew in my heart that it was going to be a bad experience but for some stupid reason I did it anyway.

    The product is no better than dollar store lotion, they both do the same thing, not much! Then they proceed to take money from my account which I never agreed to.

    I read the fine print I wish I could find the same ad that I ordered from but I can't. I intend to go to the BBB and I encourage everyone who has been ripped off by this company to do the same.

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

    Thick & Greasy

    I ordered this as a trial and cannot believe how terrible it is. It is opaque in color and feels very thick and greasy on my face. It reminds me of a product that is very cheaply made and given the $200 price point I would have expected a better product.

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

    Worst Company Ever

    I slipped up and ordered this one night (after surfing FB trying to go back to sleep after waking up with my 2 year old). HUGE mistake and I am STILL paying for it 6 weeks later, literally PAYING for it. I did not read the fine print, yep, my bad. But then realized when I received a 2nd shipment that I was on autoship. I called and canceled the product, little did I know I had to cancel both products. Yes, sold together as 1 but 2 separate charges/companies. Although I was told I did not have to cancel the 2nd one, I should have not listened and called any way. (At this point I feel like the stupid girl about to be murdered that is running UP the stairs instead of out of the house! What the heck was I thinking?)

    Anyway, 6 weeks later, 2 calls cancelling their products, several calls/disputes with my bank and a glass of wine I am STILL getting the product and being charged. Now, I have to cancel my check card because these people don't listen or follow directions.

    So, product review - trash. I tried it for about a week and it made me break out. I didn't try it long enough to see if it made a difference because I don't typically break out, so when I did I aborted that mission and stuck the trash back in the box it came in. And now sending it back to the trash company.

    I'm frustrated with them but more with myself. WHY DID I ORDER THIS? Any time it's a "free trial" or "only $4.99" - do not do it. It's a scam and these people are garbage. They won't help you. I hope somebody reads my message and doesn't make the same mistake I did.

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

    Total Scam

    • Melbourne, FL ,
    • Jul 31, 2016

    First off, I don't notice any difference in my skin. The worst part of this company is the scam they run on you to get you to try it. They claim that it's a Free trial only shipping is needed. You don't get it for 10 days but after 14 days you'll be charged $97 for this crap. Which is in fine print and you only have 5 minutes to decide to do it. I'm still fighting with the credit card company that this company is running a scam two months later.

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

    A TRAP when canceling an order.

    When you call the 800 number to use their automated system to cancel an order, you are not presented with the option to completely cancel. You press 1 to cancel future orders but keep your current product for $38.91 or press 2 to continue receiving the product or press 0 to speak with a customer service representative. If you press 1, the agent cannot (or will not) undo the damage. She said I pressed 1 with the knowledge that I was willing to cancel and keep the product for $38.91, which contractually obligated me. I argued with her about it, saying the message to press 1 to cancel was confusing - you don't realize what you've done until after you press 1. Eventually they broke down and were willing to refund me 50% of that bogus charge. If you're not willing to pay $38.91 to keep the product, you are expected to return the product at your own expense. The whole experience was horrible. Any company that does business like this is not to be trusted, which leads me to believe their product is not trustworthy either.

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

    I ordered the free trial size of the TV ad

    I ordered the Vita Luminance ageless wrinkles cream when I paid for shipping only. I asked the girl if I would be charged for the trial and replied no but if I like it, I can order a regular order and be charged for the full order yet she didn't say how much. The next thing I know I'm charged $97 for something on my checking account. I called them and explained what had happened to them. They said that the girl told me that the free trial would convert to a full price.

    I told them that this is not what the girl told me. The girl told me one thing and then it turns out that these people are telling me something else, contrary to what the girl initially told me.

    Anyway, I think they are being deceptive about their pricing. This is completely unlawful and I wish they would be more truthful and upfront about the price to begin with.

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

    Scam

    This is a scam. My free product cost me $43. A few days later they took money from my debit car. $92.53 and $97.81. I still don't know what the charges are for. They offered me 1/3 back. I want all of it back. Filed a complaint with my bank. BBB is next. Do not take the free product.

    Scam - Stay away from them.

    • Jackson, MS,
    • Jul 15, 2016

    I called myself looking over reviews. I could not find anything negative about it. Didn't see this site. I thought I would order it and if I liked it then I would order more. I did not read the terms. I usually do but somehow I missed it on this one. Sad for me because I got the Vita luminance cream and the RegeneLift for eyes for more than what it's worth. I noticed no difference in it except soft skin that other products does just as well. Did not know it autoships at the price of $92.53 for Vitaluminance & $97.81 for the RegeneLift. I just cancelled so hopefully they'll take no more money. Definitely not worth fooling with. A very valuable lesson and I thought I knew better. When cancelling, the guy told me that it tells of the 14 day trial and autoships in all caps and bold. I told him I didn't see it. He tried to keep me by saying I qualify for a 70% discount. I refused and told him I definitely want to cancel. I would suggest that unless you don't care where your money goes, to stay away from it.

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

    Steal your money right out of your account.

    • Florida,
    • Jul 15, 2016

    I have not received this product and already they have charged my account 180.00 plus. How can you try this product within 14 days if you don't even get it in the mail. I called the post office but it's already closed. So I can't track a package that I have been charged for. But I am sure this product should be taken off Facebook. I am on a limited income. I have canceled this product that I don't have, to make sure they don't take anymore money out of my account. They say they can give you 15% back, but 15.00 dollars won't feed me for a month. For now on I will never give anyone a chance to put the screws to me. Yes they might say 14 days. But this was a holiday weekend and no I have not received this product yet, so how can you try this and cancel if you don't like it.

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

    Vita Liminance & Regenelift Creams

    I received "sample Vita Luminance" and "Regenelift Eye Fream" on 5/4/16 and started using same day. I did not see any results. I was Charged $11.89 Shipping & Handling.

    On 5/13/16 Charges of $92.53 and $97.81 showed up against my bank account. I immediately called the phone numbers displayed on the containers to complain and cancel the order and any additional shipments. I was told that these charges were for the two samples received on 5/4/16 and I had 14 days to cancel those. I replied stating that they were received on 5/4/16 and I was within my rights to cancel.

    I was told that they were shipped on 4/27/16 so I was more than 14 days later so therefore I was responsible for the additional charges. This is the biggest rip-off I have ever encountered.

    After stating I would report to the BBB, the representative told me she would refund half of the charges.

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