Beverly Hills MD Review: What You Should Know

By Lydia Noyes

Updated on: Apr 21, 2020

Beverly Hills MD is a skincare brand that focuses on anti-aging products for women who want their skin to appear a few decades younger than its actual age.

The company’s two founders, Dr. John Layke and Dr. Payman Danielpour were at the forefront of cosmetic surgery practices and technology for more than a decade in California before they transitioned to non-surgical options for fighting the signs of aging.

Today, the Beverly Hills MD product line promises to help you look your best with the most promising anti-aging technology available. The company claims to use ingredients that complement each other in every formula while avoiding anything that can lead to irritation or allergic reactions.

Should you put your hope in Beverly Hills MD, or is this skincare company capitalizing on empty promises? Our analysis will help you see whether the products can deliver and if they are right for you.

A Closer Look at Key Ingredients

Each Beverly Hills MD product contains dozens of ingredients, and it’s beyond the scope of this review to dive into each one. Nonetheless, here’s some relevant information about a few standouts.

Hyaluronic acid: This common skincare ingredient is praised for boosting collagen production (a natural compound that diminishes as you age) to give your skin a plump, youthful appearance. While it’s often found in topical skincare products, most clinical evidence for its effectiveness involves injections instead.

Saw palmetto: This palm tree is used medicinally to treat prostate issues and urinary dysfunction in men. A 2007 study also found it effective for treating oily skin by reducing your sebum production.

Hydrolyzed collagen: When collagen is hydrolyzed, it’s broken down into smaller pieces that are purportedly easier for your body to process. One 12-week study found that taking one gram of collagen peptides daily led to less wrinkling and better skin hydration, but there’s less evidence for its effectiveness when used topically.

Urea: Surprising to some, urea is a common skincare ingredient that’s renowned for its moisturizing properties. Synthetic urea is often added to topical treatments for its humectant properties that keep skin nourished over time.

Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate: This compound is most often used as a cleansing agent, though it’s often found in skincare products due to its ability to produce foam. However, it’s known for being drying and may irritate the skin if you are exposed to it regularly.

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate: Sometimes nicknamed “baby foam,” this gentle cleanser comes from coconut oil and creates a rich lather that is prized in skincare products like shampoos and shower gels.

Deionized Water: This form of water undergoes a chemical filtration system that removes mineral ions from it, which leaves it extra pure and ideal for use in cosmetic products because it won’t leave any trace minerals on your skin.

Plant extracts: (plankton, apple, clover, garden cress sprouts, etc.) are often added to skincare products for botanical benefits like extra antioxidants to fight free radicals, reduce puffiness, increase hydration, and even tone and tighten the skin. However, the primary advantages seem to come from their antimicrobial properties.

Summary
Acknowledging the limited scope of this analysis for Beverly Hills MD ingredients, it still shows that many of them offer genuine skin benefits with little risk of adverse side effects. In fact, just one ingredient we looked at, sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate, has a known risk of causing skin irritation.

Money-Back Guarantee and Refund Policy

This starts the day your product ships and lets you return any item that didn’t meet your expectations, regardless of how much you used. Just keep in mind that you’ll need to cover all return shipping fees.

You can start the refund process by contacting customer service at (877) 828-5528 or at customersupport@beverlyhillsmd.com.

Analysis of Customer Reviews

More than 1,000 HighYa readers have left reviews for the Beverly Hills MD product line, and they average 4.5 stars. Trustpilot reviews are similar, as the brand averages 4.5 stars after almost 800.

We dove into those reviews and have summarized some of the most common trends below.

Common Compliments:

  • Products work as described to remove wrinkles
  • More effective than similar anti-aging brands
  • Great for daily use

Common Complaints:

  • Poor customer service experiences
  • Some people were charged for products after they canceled their account

Popular Alternatives

If you’re shopping for an anti-aging brand to keep your skin wrinkle-free, there are several brands to consider besides Beverly Hills MD.

Two popular options include Mario Badescu, a European-influenced skincare brand that’s sold in traditional retailers, and SkinCeuticals, a US-based brand committed to developing innovative products that are used by skincare professionals.

Here’s how the pricing compares between the three brands.

Beverly Hills MD Product Pricing Similar Product from Mario Badescu Pricing Similar Product from SkinCeuticals Pricing
Body Smoothing Exfoliator $58 for 4-oz ($14.5/oz) Botanical Exfoliating Scrub $26 for 3.4-oz ($7..6/oz) Micro-Exfoliating Scrub $31 for 5-oz ($6.2/oz)
Line Smoothing Serum $149 for 1.69-oz ($88/oz) Cellufirm Drops $25 for 1-oz Metacell Renewal B3 $112 for 1.7-oz ($66/oz)
Emergency Under-Eye Fix $65 for 0.35-oz ($185/oz) Ceramide Eye Gel $18 for 0.5-oz ($36/oz) A.G.E. Eye Complex for Dark Circles $98 for 1 oz
Rose Stem Cell Daily Cleanser $70 for 6.76-oz ($10.35/oz) Orange Cleansing Soap $12 for 8-oz ($1.5/oz) Gentle Cleanser $35 for 6.8-oz ($5.14/oz)
Ultra-Firming Lifting Eye Mask $128 per box Temporary Lifting Mask $20 for 1-oz Body Tightening Concentrate $79 for 5-oz ($15.8/oz)

As these prices show, the costs for Beverly Hills MD products are relatively similar to SkinCeuticals. Both brands have a focus on anti-aging and wrinkle restoration and seem to be tailored towards an older, wealthier demographic.

Mario Badescu products, in contrast, are considered more mid-range and are sold both online and at retail locations across the country. These products also put slightly more emphasis on blemish correction and acne control than they do anti-aging.

The Bottom Line

Beverly Hills MD anti-aging products promise to spot treat your skincare problems so that you can recapture your youthful glow and hide the signs of wrinkles. The company claims to use ingredients that actively benefit your skin, and the clinical evidence supports these claims.

Overall, Beverly Hills MD seems to be tailored towards an older audience. These products put the focus on restoring aging skin, and customer reviews seem to indicate that many users are happy with them.

We think this brand makes sense for anyone feeling frustrated by the aging process who wants to step up their skincare routine.

Unlike much of the competition, Beverly Hills MD doesn’t require you to sign up for an auto-ship program with your first purchase. This means you can try out any products for the full 60-day trial period without having to worry about canceling the next shipment ahead of time.

These products work

By Brian J., Alexandria, VA, Verified Reviewer

My first order with Beverly Hills MD was the Dermal Repair Complex. I ordered it because it's a combo of two supplements I already take as a man "of a certain age." So I thought it was worth a shot.

I wish I had some good before photos, because this morning I'm hungover, had about 5 hours of bad sleep, and my face still looks better than it did before I started taking the Complex. I especially notice the improvement around my eyes and the smile creases.

Last night one of the women I was with asked if I'd just gotten a facial, LOL.

The other product I use is the Thick + Full Brow Enhancing Serum. Some men get wild bushy eyebrows as they mature; the brows of some, thin. Mine were the latter, and it really bothered me. I'm still using the first tube, and I totally see a difference. I've already recommended it to a female friend.

Length of Use: 3–6 months

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pros and Cons

Quality of products

Lots of additional offerings when I try to purchase

Wish they had ads targeted toward men

Beware of promotional tactics

By Alexandria H., Sacramento, CA, Verified Reviewer

I ordered two bottles of Deep Wrinkle Cream or Filler, which subtotaled at $86. As I went to check out an offer popped up stating that I could get 3 bottles at $95. I thought this was reasonable and clicked to accept. It wasn't until after my order was processed (no review before this) that I realized that Beverly Hills MD charged me for the 2 original bottles at $86 and 3 additional bottles at $95. Who does this!

I contacted the company to explain that I was only interested in their deal if it left me with only 3 bottles of their product as opposed to 5. They wrote me back pretty much stating there was nothing they could do because the transaction had already been processed.

I will NEVER do business with this company again. I've warned my people to stay away from this stupidly unethical firm and now I'm warning you. Beware.

See their response below.

Thank you for contacting Beverly Hills MD, I'm Alisha H., and I'll be assisting you.

I sincerely apologize for any issue when placing your order.

However, I've taken a look at your account and I see that you purchased one of our promotional offers upon checkout. The additional offers are limited promotions given to every customer as a "Thank You" for your initial purchase.

These orders do not replace your initial purchase and offer special discounts on larger quantities of product, as well as other related products to help optimize results

Length of Use: 6–12 months

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

Damage in shipping

By Kay W., Dover, DE, Verified Reviewer

The product is working as advertised. The problem is in shipping. I have had two shipments sent to me and the first time one jar's lid was cracked but no glass shards were present, so I kept it. This box I received yesterday, all three jars were broken. I cut my hand with a piece of glass just in opening the box. Should I return it or will you send me a replacement?

Length of Use: 3–6 months

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Slow but positive results

By Deborah O., Walnut Creek, CA, Verified Reviewer

I used this product several years ago for a spot on my face. It was under my eye and was about the size of a quarter and was almost a dark chocolate brown. I didn't think anything would help but finally decided to use this Beverly Hills MD Dark Spot Corrector. I don't remember how long it took but I know I was into my second bottle when it really started to fade. Finally, it was gone and it has never returned. Now I am using it on my hands. I am still on my first bottle but I am starting to see a little progress, but I won't quit as I KNOW it works! My spots didn't get here overnight so I cannot expect them to go away overnight.

Length of Use: 2+ years

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

First thing that's ever worked!

Good

By Yaeko M. , Oceanside, CA

I started only 3-6 weeks trying to see how BHMD’s products work on me and it is a little too early to write my reviews.

But I felt and see the difference after using for a few weeks, my skin is much firmer and keeps moisture all day.

I like to keep using BHMD products and hopefully these products are good for my skin.

The Layne Frown

By Teri L., Tega Cay, SC, Verified Reviewer

The females on my mother's side of the family have creases on both ends of the lower lip that make it appear as though we have a permanent frown (just normal facial expression). As I have gotten into my 50s that crease has gotten worse by becoming deeper and one side actually started showing a second crease next to the first. I became very self-conscious about this because my mother, in her 70s, has the same creases on her face and they are so bad around her mouth that lipstick and sometimes food or drink will slide down into the creases around her mouth.

I am very happy to report after using the Line Smoothing Serum for 4 weeks I have noticed a definite improvement in the prominence of the Layne Frown and I am very happy about that. It has also helped minimize those small wrinkles above the upper lip and of course the lines on my forehead.

Overall I am very glad I took a chance with this product and this company, so far I have not been disappointed.

Length of Use: Less than 3 months

Success

By Janet M., Las Vegas, NV, Verified Reviewer

Am pleasantly surprised in the results of the products purchased.

The products ordered have been received quickly.

The noticeable aging of my skin began ten (10) years ago upon reaching the age of 60 and was to the point of not wanting to even look into a mirror. My self-esteem took a big nose-dive.

I have been experimenting with various anti-aging products over the past 20 years to no avail.

Since applying Dr. Layke's products, my partner has resumed his "good morning, beautiful" comments! And thank YOU very much Doc John L.

Length of Use: 6–12 months

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Zero trust in Beverly Hills MD organization

By Anne S., Michigan, Verified Reviewer

I was willing to give a product a try, because it was a $39 deal. On the website, I was hit with upsell offers. That's annoying, but I stupidly took the $102 "deal" and managed to make it through to enter my credit card info. That should have been it. But when I hit "submit," I was presented with 4+ more upsell offer screens. With each screen, I had to scroll way down to say "no thanks" in order to continue (under threat that if I try to exit the screen, it may result in multiple charges to my credit card). By the time I hit the confirmed order screen, I'd lost trust in the company. I tried to cancel online, then sent an email. A few hours later, I received an email saying that it was too late to cancel, but of course I can pay shipping to return the product for a refund. With such a complex website designed to entrap consumers, I have a hard time believing they can't cancel orders before they ship. While not technically illegal, these people are unethical.

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

Pros and Cons

Product potential

Convincing advertisement video

Deals, deals, deals!

Cookies, spam

Tricky upsell tactics

Refusal to cancel orders

Returning the bottles for a full refund is industry standard but I'd be more than happy to issue you a full refund without having to send any products back as a one-time courtesy. I'm so sorry for the confusion and I look forward to making this right. Please e-mail me at Sam@beverlyhillsmd.com so I can begin this process!
