Using winter cherry extract and other all-natural ingredients, Wrinkless is an anti-aging beauty cream that’s claimed to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, eliminate deep wrinkles, brighten dark circles, hydrate skin for up to 24 hours, diminish age spots, and lift and firm skin, without the use of any chemicals, synthetics, or preservatives.
Wrinkless is claimed to work 4 levels deep to improve the overall look of aging skin and to help women look “much younger,” using the following ingredients:
- Carrot Seed Oil
- Winter Cherry Extract
- Aloe Vera
- Sesame Seed Oil
- Mustard Seed
- Ginger & Honey
- Clove Oil
- Cardamom Oil
According to the Wrinkless website, you should apply the anti-aging cream in the morning, and that with continued use, you’ll see a “tremendous improvement” within 2 weeks (although the FAQ claims 3-4 weeks for maximum results).
Our society places a lot of emphasis on youth and looking your best, so you may be embarrassed by your deepening laugh lines or crow’s feet. But can you realistically expect Wrinkless to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, or to help you look “much younger?” Consider the following:
What Ingredients Does Wrinkless Contain?
First and foremost, other than including a link to a University of Maryland article about aloe, there is no clinical evidence provided on the Wrinkless website showing that any of its ingredients can have any anti-aging benefits, with the exception of moisturization. In fact, although most of Wrinkless’s ingredients do provide at least some benefits (e.g. brahmi for improving memory, turmeric for osteoarthritis, camphor for cough, etc.), there is insufficient evidence available showing that they can provide any kind of meaningful anti-aging benefits. And especially so considering the short length of time in which Wrinkless is claimed to work.
With this said, Aloe Vera is well known for its ability to protect skin from radiation damage (including sunburn), but this isn’t the same as reducing the signs of aging.
Is There Any Clinical Proof for Wrinkless’s Claims?
Although there’s a lack of clear evidence linking most of Wrinkless’s ingredients to any anti-aging benefits, the manufacturer claims it provided an average reduction of 72.4% for wrinkles, aging lines, and age spots, based on an “internal study and user results.” However, no additional information or evidence is provided to back up this claim.
Does Wrinkless Work 4 Layers Into Your Skin?
Next, Wrinkless is claimed to work “4 levels deep” within the skin, but skin only contains 3 layers: the Epidermis, Dermis, and Subcutaneous (Hypodermis). Of course, this is unless the manufacturer is talking about the first 4 stratums, which are corneum, lucidum, granulosum, and spinosum.
This isn’t made clear on the product’s website, so we can’t be certain. However, keep in mind that pretty much anything applied to your skin is ultimately absorbed into your bloodstream, which means that nearly all will work “4 levels deep.”
More Unanswered Questions About Wrinkless
Our unanswered questions don’t stop there, though. When it comes to Wrinkless, we’d wonder which MDs recommended the beauty cream, and precisely what helping you to look “much younger” means (e.g. is it a year or 2, or is it 10?). Also, Wrinkless is claimed to be “taking Hollywood by storm,” although we couldn’t find any celebrities who endorsed Wrinkless or who claimed to have used it online.
Also, the “hands” in the before and after picture on the Wrinkless website are different. Not that they belong to different people, but that the first pic is of a right hand, while the second pic is of a left (see below). So clearly, these are not actually before and after pictures showing you what you could realistically expect.

Does Wrinkless Have a Good Customer Reputation?
Overall, it appears that Wrinkless has a middle-of-the road online customer reputation. While the beauty cream had an average rating of 3.5 stars on Amazon (as of 12/11/14), the product appears to have a much lower reputation elsewhere, with common complaints citing failure to work, the 14-day trial (more about this in a moment), its excessively high price, and poor customer service (rude staff, difficulty cancelling trials/processing refunds, etc.).
On top of this, Wrinkless is manufactured by Aloe Vella, who holds a C rating with the Better Business Bureau based on more than 90 closed complaints. Many of these reference the same issues noted previously.
Also, when searching elsewhere online for Wrinkless reviews, keep in mind that not all websites are as trustworthy as HighYa. This is because many affiliates will create websites that are intended to look like legitimate reviews, but are actually just more marketing material from the company.
Wrinkless Pricing & Refund Policy
Wrinkless is only available through a 14-day trial, for which you’ll pay $6.95 S&H and will receive a 60-day supply. According to the company, your trial begins the day your order is placed, which should arrive within 3-5 business days.
After 14 days have passed, you’ll be charged $99.90 for the full price of Wrinkless, and will be enrolled in the product’s autoship program. This means you’ll continue receiving a new supply of Wrinkless every 60 days, and your credit card will be charged $99.90 each time. Note: As we’ve mentioned many times in the past, it’s often best to stay away from products offered only through free trials and subsequent autoship programs.
Outside of the trial, Wrinkless is claimed to come with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges, as well as a $10 restocking fee for refunds on orders over $75.
Important note about Wrinkless returns: According to the Wrinkless Terms & Conditions, “Cancellation of the automatic shipment enrollment associated with the promotional offer prior to the end of the 15-day period voids the 15-day trial period and you will be subject to the charge associated with your selected promotional offer.” In other words, in order to avoid being charged full price for the 60-day supply you received as part of your trial, it appears that you’ll first have to call to cancel your trial before 14 days have passed, and then you’ll have to call again after the 14 days have passed in order to cancel your autoship enrollment.
With this said, if you need to process a refund, cancel your trial, or cancel your autoship enrollment, you’ll need to call customer service at 800-564-1623 9-5 M-F for a Return Authorization Number.
Interestingly, Wrinkless is also sold through Amazon for only for $49.95.
Can Wrinkless Help Keep You Looking Younger for Longer?
Chopping to the Point: Considering the lack of clinical evidence showing most of Wrinkless’s ingredients can provide any anti-aging benefits (especially as fast as the manufacturer claims), the number of unanswered questions, the restrictive refund/cancellation policy, and its mediocre online customer reputation, the high price you’ll pay is likely far out of line with any anti-aging benefits you can expect to achieve by using Wrinkless.
