About Crepe Erase

Endorsed by Jane Seymour, Crepe Erase is claimed to be a revolutionary 2-step anti-aging system that smoothes, firms, and lifts the dry, aged, and “crepey” skin on your neck, chest, arms, and legs. In fact, the product is claimed to be a “breakthrough body treatment” that gives users a chance to “be happy in your own skin.” That’s right, for $59.95 you have a chance to be happy with yourself! How empowering.

With this said, Crepe Erase is claimed to start working after just one use. And although there are no ingredients (other than TruFirm, which we’ll talk more about in a moment) listed on the Crepe Erase website, one HighYa reader emailed us to let us know it contains the following:

  • Shea butter
  • Cocoa butter
  • Olive oil
  • Beeswax
  • Dill extract
  • Apple extract

When it comes down to it, you’ve spent hundreds (if not thousands) of your hard-earned money on anti-aging creams in the past, with less-than-stellar results. But instead of doing this again, you’ve come here to find out whether or not Crepe Erase will work for you. Consider the following:

What Causes Crepey Skin?

Crepey skin is caused by a variety of factors that conspire to leave you with crinkly, sagging skin that resembles the texture of tissue paper. Crepey skin can appear just about anywhere on the body, although it’s most common on the neck, face, arms, and back of the hands—basically, anywhere that’s frequently exposed to the sun and other elements.

What Causes Skin To Appear Crepey?

As we age, our skin naturally thins as collagen and elastin production (two of the most common structural proteins in the human body) begins to slow down, which are responsible for (among many other things) supporting the extracellular matrix of your skin. In other words, the more collagen and elastin your body has, the more likely your skin is to look firm, supple, and healthy.

If you’ve been researching anti-aging products for long, you probably know that this is what leads to wrinkles, but it’s also the same process that causes crepey skin. Instead of forming deep wrinkles though, linear or diamond-shaped marks begin to appear between hair follicles, which slowly become more exaggerated as time passes, eventually giving off a tissue paper-like appearance.

Other Factors That Can Lead To Crepe-iness

While most people begin experiencing crepey skin soon after they reach their 40s, age isn’t the only factor. Just like wrinkles and other signs of aging, crepey skin can reveal itself after losing weight (there’s less fat remaining to plump skin and smooth out lines), years of excessive sun exposure, smoking cigarettes, eating a diet high in sugar, and more.

So, while creams like Crepe Erase might help improve the appearance of crepey skin (more about this in a second), you might get the most bang-for-your-buck by addressing some of these lifestyle factors first.

Can You Reverse Crepey Skin?

Just like any other signs of aging, once your skin turns crepey, there’s no turning back. However, you can temporarily minimize the appearance of your crepey skin using prescription retinoids along with other firming products, so we’d definitely recommend speaking with your dermatologist.

What about Crepe Erase, though? Will it really help address your crepey skin? Let’s dig in and find out.

What Is TruFirm? Are Crepe Erase’s Other Ingredients Effective?

It appears that TruFirm is a proprietary ingredient featured only in Crepe Erase products, as there isn’t any information about it through third-party websites. Because of this, there’s no way to judge its effectiveness.

With this said, shea butter is an “off- white or ivory-colored fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree” widely used for its moisturization effects. Similarly, cocoa butter is a vegetable fat included in a variety of cosmetics, also for its moisturizing and antioxidant properties. As another fatty substance, olive oil is also used primarily for moisturization.

Beeswax is known for its anti-swelling and anti-inflammatory properties, dill contains chemicals that might help relax muscles, and apple contains acetic acid, along with vitamins B and C. However, according to WebMD, there is insufficient clinical evidence showing that any of these ingredients can reliably provide visible anti-aging benefits.

What does all of this mean? Overall, it appears that, like many other anti-aging and skincare products we’ve reviewed, Crepe Erase’s primary benefit is related to moisturization. And while this can certainly improve the appearance and texture of your skin if it’s dry, none of the ingredients contained in Crepe Erase appear to address the root cause of crepey skin (e.g. collagen loss).

As such, it’s probably the case that any results you’ll achieve from using Crepe Erase likely aren’t as revolutionary as the manufacturer claims.

Is Crepe Erase Clinically Proven?

Although Crepe Erase’s ingredients may not be effective for much more than moisturization, is the product itself proven to work?

In short, no. Although Crepe Erase’s website claims it’s “proven to provide visibly firmer, younger-looking skin,” there is no proof provided on the site, and there is no third-party confirmation of this.

Keep Your Emotions in Check

Perhaps because none of the product’s ingredients are proven to provide any anti-aging benefits, the Crepe Erase website uses a lot of wording intended to trigger an emotional response from you.

This includes playing off your emotions by calling aging skin “embarrassing” and “unattractive,” which is unfair marketing. In other words, no one should ever be shamed into purchasing a product.

Are There Other Options for Addressing Crepey-Looking Skin?

There is a wealth of information available online about treating “skin crepey-ness” using fractal lasers, as discussed by several plastic surgeons on this message board, or in this morning show interview.

Also, for those of us interested in changing the texture of our skin, but don’t want to go the route of costly procedures, facial and body massages are proven to increase circulation, which plumps skin naturally and feels really nice to boot! It’s also something you can perform on yourself at home… and for free.

Who’s Talking About Crepe Erase?

Although Crepe Erase’s trademark was filed in October 2013, there weren’t any legitimate online customer reviews available at the time of our research.

However, we learned that Crepe Erase is brought to you by Guthy-Renker, who also manufactures many other popular beauty and skincare products, including ProActiv Plus, Wen Hair Care, Meaningful Beauty, and X Out.

Based on 30 HighYa reader reviews for these products, they hold an average rating of 1.5 stars, with some of the most common complaints citing negative skin reactions, failure to work as advertised, and difficulties with autoship programs (more about this in the following section). Granted, this may not be what you’ll experience with Crepe Erase, although it’s important to keep in mind.

From a company perspective, Guthy-Renker holds an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, despite having nearly 280 closed complaints (as of 2/4/15). Most of these appear to reference the same concerns noted above.

Crepe Erase Pricing & Refund Policy

Crepe Erase is available in 2 purchasing options:

  • Introductory System: $49.95 plus $5.99 S&H per month. Includes Exfoliating Body Polish and Intensive Body Repair Treatment.
  • Maximum Results System: $69.95 per month plus free S&H. Includes everything in the Introductory System, in addition to Refining Facial Scrub, Restorative Facial Treatment, and Ultra Hydrating Body Lotion.

Whichever system you decide to purchase, your order will also include a free bottle of Advanced Firming Eye Serum, which is claimed to provide firmer, less crepey-looking skin around your eyes.

Important note: Your Crepe Erase order will also include enrollment in the company’s autoship program. This means you’ll continue receiving a regular supply of Crepe Erase once every 30 days, and your credit card will be charged accordingly. In our professional experience, autoship programs are often more about roping you into recurring charges than they are about providing any kind of convenience, so we’d recommend proceeding with caution.

With this said, Crepe Erase comes with a 60-day refund policy, less S&H charges, even if the bottle is empty. In order to request a refund or cancel your autoship enrollment, you’ll need to contact customer service at (800) 770-1886.

Can Crepe Erase Make Your Skin Look Younger?

Considering the lack of evidence showing that any of Crepe Erase’s ingredients can reliably provide you with any tangible, lasting anti-aging benefits, unless your skin is extremely dry, it almost certainly won’t provide an immediate lifting and firming effect.

On top of this, with so many red flags (such as claiming to be “proven” without backing it up, using negative emotions to sell their product, as well as mandatory autoship enrollment), this may signal that Crepe Erase contains more hype than substance.

    They charge you card three times for $54.95 but send you a product only once. Then you cannot get a response from them for a refund.

    I will involve Better Business Bureau, and social media has a very wide audience.

    The product does not even work, such a scam.

    One very disappointed customer.

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

    Scammers

    I ordered the 30-day supply last fall. I canceled the subscription within the allotted time period because I didn't find the product effective. Recently I received another package. Why? I canceled several months ago. The only reason is that Gunthy-Renker is a dishonest company, and many people would just keep the product and pay, even though they did not order it.

    Sticky and unpleasant to use

    Made absolutely no difference in my skin, at all. The consistent was awful (thick, sticky and just not pleasant to use).

    The smell was also thick, sweet, and overwhelming. If it sounds too good to be true, it is. Don't waste your money (I've bought better moisturizers at the drugstore for far less).

    So I gave it two stars for false advertising (should have been one star, but they were responsive and prompt with my cancellation).

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

    Doesn't work

    I have been using this Crepe Erase for over 30 days now, and I do not see any difference, and I certainly did not see any instant difference as they stated you would see. So if you don't want to waste your money, don't purchase it.

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

    Crepe Erase credit card scam

    I ordered Crepe Erase in December of 2017 and got it before Christmas. I did not like the product and didn't see any results so called to cancel, and they said I missed the deadline by 12 hours, so they charged me $68.71. I asked to cancel all future orders, and I received an email confirmation from a representative that all future orders would cease.

    On March 9th, 2018 I had a credit card charge of $68.71 and called immediately, and the representative told me that I had changed the frequency of future packages, that I did not cancel. I let them know I had an email confirmation and I did cancel. Instead of cancelling the charge, they told me I'd have to refuse the package for a full refund when I returned it.

    The package did not get to me until the 15th of March and I refused it and returned it to the mail on the 16th of March. It is the 29th and there is still no refund therefore I called, and they just processed my package on the 28th. Now I've been informed that they will be returning to me $54.00 minus the $14.00 for shipping. I'm furious. Clearly, they had not mailed it the day they charged me, and it could have been canceled. And I had canceled, so they just stole $14.00 in my book.

    I will be canceling my credit card so they can no longer do this to me since clearly an email confirmation is meaningless to the criminals that are running this product. Don't buy it because one, you can never cancel, and two, the product does not work.

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

    Fragrance overwhelming

    • Virginia,
    • Feb 27, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I really like the concept of taking care of the skin on the body like the face.

    The texture of creams and lotions is heavy and dense in the jar but feels light on the skin. Very moisturizing. Body exfoliant doesn't have enough exfoliating ingredient to be effective. The product developers went way off track when they decided to add huge amounts of fragrance though. Besides not being a very nice smell, it is SO strong. The Restorative Facial Treatment has something in it that actually stings when applied.

    As is, I will never order another shipment until products are reformulated without any fragrance.

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

    Scam!

    I ordered this product and paid for what I thought was one shipment of the product because I checked the preference that indicated I wanted only a one-time shipment. However, what Crepe Erase did, even though I indicated a one-time shipment, was automatically enroll me in a club. About three weeks later, I received another, unordered shipment of Crepe Erase, when I still had plenty left from the product I DID order.

    I sent the product back immediately with tracking. However, Crepe Erase kept charging me, for MONTHS, for the second shipment, which I DID NOT ORDER. I called their customer service and spoke with a representative who said that, although she could SEE that I had sent the second unordered product back, she CLAIMED they hadn't received the product I sent back. I told her that her complaint, then, was with FedEx, not me, since she could see that there was a tracking number and that I had in good faith sent the product back.

    However, it is now A YEAR LATER, and I am STILL BEING BILLED for the product I sent back! Not only that, but they have put me into debt collection with a company called North Shore Agency and are going to ruin my good credit. If they do, I will hire an attorney and charge Crepe Erase for my attorney's fees. My opinion is that anyone who does business with this company is opening up a huge can of worms, as the company will ruin your credit even if they can see that you sent the unordered product back to them. Scammers!

    And the product is NOT EVEN ANY GOOD. You can buy a good quality moisturizer and get the same results with the aggravation!

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

    Crepe Erase intensive body repair treatment

    I love this product. I use it every night before bed and in the morning. It is amazing. I am 66 and I tell you it is magic. And it works. My arms my legs, especially my neck, look so good. I love this product. Buy it today. You will not regret it. Love, love, love it so much.

    Review of Crepe Erase

    • Allentown, PA,
    • Dec 15, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    They misinterpreted the total fees. I am a smart woman who reads the fine print. I knew an amount would be withdrawn one more time, but understood it was for more product. The amount was withdrawn on November 22nd, and I emailed Crepe Erase that I had not received more product, and also the product didn't help me at all and I wanted to discontinue the transaction. They informed me that it was a payment for what I received in September! I was not informed appropriately of that matter. I am extremely disappointed, and for me to write something negative, that's a testament to my displeasure.

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

    It works!

    It is a little pricey, but it works! I love this product. It was the biscuit dough test that made me buy it. Once, while riding in my husband's truck in shorts, when I got out of the truck, every place my legs touch, the leather looked brand new.

    Do not waste your money!

    These celebrities should be ashamed of themselves endorsing this product! I tried this product for a long time hoping it would make some kind of difference, but it didn't! What did help a lot for me is an actual aloe plant. I would snip a piece off and rub the pure aloe pulp on my crepey area of my arm, and it worked so much better than this rip-off product! Aloe doesn't smell the best, but that does go away, AND you are providing nature's best moisturizer to your most vulnerable skin.
