Endorsed by actress Jennifer Beals, EverDeep is a line of “As Seen on TV” skincare products that use Algasome Complex, an algae-derived blend of peptides and anti-oxidants, to infuse micro-nutrients into your skin and to reduce the signs of aging. In fact, EverDeep claims that their products have been shown to increase cell renewal by 37%, and to increase collagen synthesis by 53%.
But can you really expect these types of results from EverDeep? Let’s dive in and see what the facts say.
At their most basic, EverDeep beauty products claim to be different than the competition through the use of their patented Algasome Complex, which is derived from algae found in the waters of Northern Europe. This nutrient-rich strain of algae is claimed to have a unique ability to retain moisture, and to contain a higher concentration of micronutrients, including amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants, polyphenols, and polysaccharides.
EverDeep claims to have been formulated based on the research of Dr. Arthur Grossman, a scientist at Carnegie Institution for Science, after years of study, and to be the first patented brand to use this algae whole cell complex in a skincare system. In fact, EverDeep claims their beauty products are simple to use, to transform your skin with the first application, and to provide visible results in just 2 weeks, with maximum results after 8 weeks.
Each EverDeep skincare system includes the following products:
- Radiance Revitalizing Cleanser 5.5 fl oz – A deep cleanser that is claimed to remove makeup and other impurities, refine pores, and revitalize your skin, without stripping your skin of naturally produced oils.
- Illuminating Toner – Hydrates, soothes, and refreshes your skin.
- Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Serum 1 fl oz – Claims to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smooth the texture of your skin, and to increase radiance.
- Lifting Day Cream SPF20 1.7 fl oz – Decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also moisturizing and providing chemical-based (Avobenzone, Homosalate, Octisalate) broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection.
- Triple Action Eye Cream 0.5 fl oz – Specifically formulated to lift and firm, and to reduce puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes.
- Complete Repair Night Cream 1.7 fl oz – Firms, strengthens, moisturizes, and repairs skin overnight.
EverDeep is claimed to work on all skin types, regardless of age or specific skin concerns. In addition, EverDeep products are claimed to be manufactured in the USA, and to be paraben free, phthalate free, dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic (e.g. they won’t clog your pores).
EverDeep Pricing & Refund Policy
According to EverDeep’s Ordering page, a 30-day 4-piece kit is priced at $39.95, plus free shipping and handling. However, the site’s FAQ section claims shipping will cost $5.99.
After placing your order, you’ll be automatically enrolled in EverDeep’s Membership Program. This means that after the initial 30 days, you’ll continue receiving a 90-day 5-piece supply of EverDeep products once every three months, and your credit card will be charged $39.95 plus $8.99 shipping and handling each time. According to the company, your autoship program can be cancelled at any time without further obligation.
Furthermore, EverDeep claims that they’ll include three bonus gifts with your initial order, but does not specify what these free gifts are.
The EverDeep skincare system comes with a 60-day money back guarantee, less shipping and handling charges. In order to clarify S&H charges, what’s included with the free gifts, or to begin the refund process, you’ll need to contact customer service at 877-750-7852.
What Do Other Consumers Have to Say About EverDeep?
EverDeep products are manufactured by EverDeep Inc. based out of Van Nuys, CA, and is not listed with the Better Business Bureau.
The only online reviews we were able to locate regarding EverDeep skincare products were from bloggers who received free products in exchange for reviews, which were wholly positive. In fact, even the comments left by readers are completely positive as well, without one negative comment—or even a suggestion on how the products could be better.
What’s the Bottom Line About EverDeep?
Keeping all this information in mind, should you spend your hard-earned money on EverDeep skincare products?
Based on the wholly positive reviews from bloggers, as well as the numerous glowing reviews left by their readers, it appears that either 1) EverDeep really does work as well as it claims, or 2) these blogs are just adding to the marketing hype from the company. Unfortunately, without any uncompensated online customer reviews as of the time of this writing, we’re not sure which is which.
In addition, no ingredients are listed on the EverDeep website, which is a little disconcerting considering this is something that you’ll be putting on your skin. Also, it’s important to note that EverDeep does not provide any references to the scientific studies that show the product’s efficacy. Even the numbers provided on the product’s How it Works page were gathered from a “self-assessment consumer use test,” not from a controlled clinical study.
Also, EverDeep is an “As Seen on TV” product, which tend to have lower customer satisfaction ratings than more mainstream products. Most consumer complaints tend to claim that these products often don’t work as well as advertised, and any benefits you do receive may not be proportional to the high price.
Finally, if you decide to purchase EverDeep products, remember that you’ll automatically be enrolled in their Membership Program. As we mentioned in our Autoship article, these programs are often intended to rack up as many charges as possible, and companies often make it as difficult as possible to cancel. While we’re not saying this is necessarily the case with EverDeep, without any online customer reviews, we can’t be certain.
Bottom line: Without referencing any ingredients or clinical trials to support their claims, in addition to their status as an “As Seen on TV” product and the automatic Membership Program enrollment, you may be taking a gamble with your hard-earned money.

I'm online searching to find Everdeep skin care again! I had tried it and loved it but was not sure that it was worth the money. I don't believe I need a different cleanser and toner than my normal Cetaphil cleanser or the Paula's choice toner for calming skin. However, that being said, this stuff DID make my skin look great. I found it hydrating and felt it did wonders for firming my crepiness on my neck and under eye area. I just don't want to be forced to purchase ALL the products. I would like the option to get what I want and not the whole system. I've truly tried so many different kinds of skin care products and at age 50, this was the one I've LOVED. I just don't want to be forced to buy all the products in the line.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friendView all 1 commentsHide comments

Hey Leah. I've been on the hunt for EverDeep, as I need to reorder products. However, I thought they discontinued it! Is it still available and if so, where? I'll look for it right now, but thought I would also comment in case you knew. Thanks!
