Vlamorous is an anti-aging skin cream that promises to be able to provide visibly younger-looking skin as well as a host of other benefits, all in a convenient and injection-free solution.
The product claims to actually be able to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the skin, and also claims to be able to eliminate the look of dark circles under the eyes. Finally, the product states that it is able to enhance your skin’s overall hydration.
All of us age. It seems like an almost silly thing to say, in a way, but the truth of the matter is, a product that could “turn back the clock” a bit and restore our skin to a more youthful state could potentially be a high-value item for thousands, and even millions of people from all over, provided it actually worked as described.
To that end, let’s take a closer look at what exactly Vlamorous claims to do in the skin in order to provide the benefits stated above.
What Does Vlamorous Claim To Do For The Skin?
Our skin is made up of 75% water and a protein called collagen, according to WebMD. As we all age with time, our skin is constantly growing and replacing itself. In fact, your skin typically fully replaces itself each and every month, growing new skin cells to replace the dead ones that are constantly falling off of your body.
Collagen acts as your first line of defense against age-related issues such as fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots on the skin, due to its role as a major support structure for the skin itself. Over time, however, your body’s ability to maintain and replace your collagen decreases, resulting in skin that is more susceptible to these sorts of issues.
Coupled with exposure to UV rays from the sun, smoking, and repeated facial expressions, our skin is under almost constant assault from outside forces. This is where Vlamorous comes into play.
The product claims to be able to rejuvenate and replenish the collagen and elastin in your skin, helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, enhance your skin's hydration, and improve its health overall.
These are very attractive claims, to be sure, but in order to substantiate them, we’ll need to take a closer look at the individual ingredients that make up the product’s formula.
What Ingredients Are Used In Vlamorous?
Understanding the ingredients used in a product's formula is one of the most important steps to having a grasp on said product’s overall effectiveness. Unfortunately, the main website for Vlamorous does not list the ingredients used in the product.
Because of this, we reached out to customer support, who told us that the formula includes Pinoxide, Eyeseryl, and Vitamins C, A, and E.
In an effort to determine how these ingredients might deliver the benefits claimed by Vlamorous, let’s break each one down individually using information gathered from authority health sites such as Examine.com, Livestrong.com, and Sciencedaily.com.
Pinoxide appears to be a branded term, not a conventional chemical substance. A quick Google search turned up a trademark filled by a company called Applied Genetics Incorporated Dermatics, but other than this, we were unable to find any substantial information on what makes up the substance.
It’s also unclear what the substance’s role in this particular formula is. When we inquired to customer service about this, we were told that they did not have this information.
Eyeseryl seems to be a branded compound, much in the same vein as Pinoxide above. According to Lotioncrafter.com, Eyeseryl is a peptide, chains of amino acids that serve several crucial functions in the body.
A study carried out by a company called Lipotec seems to illustrate Eyeseryl’s effectiveness at reducing the appearance of bags under the eyes, which is stated benefit of Vlamorous.
Vitamin C is a vitamin found in many areas of nature. Some animals can actually create their own Vitamin C supplies, but humans must find it elsewhere, such as in various fruits and vegetables. It is one of the most well-known vitamins due to its array of potential health benefits, which range from warding off the common cold to helping those who are iron deficient.
That being said, it also looks as though Vitamin C might be effective for reducing the appearance of wrinkles in facial skin that has been damaged by exposure to the sun's harmful UV rays.
Vitamin A, otherwise known as Retinol, has been used to treat skin related conditions for many years now. There are a variety of different clinical and medical sources illustrating Retinol’s effectiveness with reducing the appearance of wrinkles and other age-related skin conditions, such as this piece by Science Daily.
Vitamin E is yet another vitamin found in a variety of places within nature. Although there are many different sources that show Vitamin E as being useful for the skin as a moisturizer, it does not appear that there is any clinical evidence that the substance can combat wrinkles or other age-related conditions directly.
Potential Vlamorous Side Effects
As always, when dealing with a formula of different ingredients such as the one used here with Vlamorous, there is always the potential for unforeseen side effects to pop up.
On the whole, Vitamins E, A and C should be safe to use topically in moderate amounts and should be free of serious side effects, but seeing as we don’t have medical data on Pinoxide and Eyeseryl, measured caution is advised if you plan to use a product that includes said ingredients.
It’s also important to note again that customer service did not have information on how much of each ingredient is used. Amounts of Vitamin C over 2000mg daily could result in side effects such as kidney stones and severe diarrhea, so this is important to keep in mind going into a potential purchase.
Vlamorous Pricing & Return Policy
Vlamorous is currently available exclusively as a part of a “free trial” style purchase plan. This means that to purchase the product, you’ll be prompted to start a trial, paying just $4.94 for shipping and handling. However, at the time of your purchase, you’ll also be enrolled in the company’s autoship program.
This program will charge you $97.83 on the 15th day from your order date for a monthly supply and $97.83 every 30 days thereafter until you cancel. To cancel this membership, you’ll need to reach out to customer support at (844) 621-2325.
As for the return policy, the company states in the terms on the website that they offer a full refund (less shipping and handling and a $20 restocking fee) on any regularly priced item, as long as it is returned within 30 days of the purchase. This does not include the trial supply or any other discounted supply.
In order to process your return, you’ll need to reach out to customer support to request a Return Authorization Number.
Are There Other Products Like Vlamorous Out There?
Here at HighYa, we’ve covered literally hundreds of anti-aging products in the past, and we’ve even written in-depth about products with similar pricing schemes to the one in use here by Vlamorous.
Essentially, many products tend to offer these sorts of “free trials”, but based on our extensive experience reporting on these sorts of things, as well as feedback from thousands of HighYa readers just like you, it looks as though these types of programs might be difficult to get out of, depending on the specific company involved.
It’s important to note that we aren't claiming that this will be your experience here with Vlamorous, but that we simply advise keeping it in mind going into a potential purchase.
If you’re looking for a comprehensive guide to purchasing a quality, functional anti-aging product for a fair price, we’ve written up a dedicated how-to buying guide for you. You can read through it right here.
Essentially, you’ll want to take your time and look around for reputable products with real customer reviews, product labels, and transparent clinical data on ingredients used.
Also, you’ll want to be on the lookout for products that make all manner of sensational claims while providing little to nothing in the way of scientific evidence to back up said claims. In general, these products are likely to be less trustworthy than established brands with solid clinical data backing them up.
The Final Verdict On Vlamorous
Bringing everything that we’ve learned about Vlamorous into focus, we feel that there are a few concerns with the product overall, in our honest opinion. While some of the ingredients used in the product’s formula, especially Vitamins A & C, have shown to be potentially effective for reducing wrinkles and other age-related skin issues, we feel that the autoship program and fairly high price that comes along with the product is cause for measured concern.
A quick Google search for ‘anti-aging cream’ brings up a number of results, such as the Retinol Surge Moisturizer currently sold on Amazon for just over $20. This product has over 2,000 customer reviews, the bulk of which are positive, and we feel that a product like this might be a better choice, value-wise, due to its upfront pricing and social proof provided.
Ultimately, it will be up to you to decide if you’d like to give Vlamorous a try or not. If you opt to, however, we’d recommend simply keeping the autoship program (as well as the return and cancellation policies thereof) firmly in mind going into the transaction.
Overall it's ok
I read a bunch of the reviews indicating this was a scam. When I received my product within a day or two, I called customer service to cancel my membership. I was directed to an automated service, and I was able to cancel my membership without any problems. However, you will have to pay a discounted price of $36.95 for the products if you wish to cancel the membership. I immediately received an email upon cancellation indicating my membership was canceled and no further shipments nor charges would be made.
As for the product itself, I have been using it for about a week and a half. No noticeable changes but it is too early to tell. This product definitely isn't an "immediate instant" result. So if you want to try it, just be aware that you will need to call customer service almost immediately upon receipt of the product to avoid any additional charges. And be prepared to pay the discounted price of $36.95.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Do not fall for this!
Do not fall for this product scam. I ended up with charges over $230 for three tiny little face cream items. I called, and they would not reimburse me. Nowhere did it say that I was agreeing to pay this much money (which I never would do) or that I was getting into some autoship program. I am so upset about this HUGE WASTE of money. Don't get sucked in.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

No, do not order this product
Do not, I repeat, do not order this product! You would do better going into a Nordstrom, Ulta, Macy's and doing a consultation.
The discounted trial is a setup! You will not be informed to cancel within 14 days, and then your account will be charged. I was charged $94 and $98, yes that is correct, for the two sample products I was charged over $90 EACH. So yes, this can seriously mess up your account!
Then when you call, you will get a representative that speaks broken English and will try to get you to agree to a 30% refund then a 50% refund! That person will not be able to do anything more and will escalate your concern, so I'm now waiting 24 hours to be contacted back to see if they will refund my full price.
I'm so angry right now and would not suggest anyone order this mess! My wrinkles are not that serious. First and last time ever doing this. I will walk my butt into one of the stores. There is never anything that great but always some darn small print detail that will cost you way more than it is worth. Buyer beware!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Do not order!
TOTAL SCAM. I ordered the free sample. NOWHERE did it say "monthly subscription." When I called, they said they would not refund and they would not escalate me. Then they said they would refund 50% only due to company policy within 7-10 days and someone from the Concern Department would get back to me in 24-48 hours about the remaining 50%, and they would cancel my membership.
I called back ten minutes later, and another rep said he would offer 70% but that the Concern Department had to decide about the rest and that my membership was not canceled, so he would do it. TOTAL FRAUD. Not worth the headache and certainly not worth $100 a jar!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
