About LuxDerma Skin

By HighYa Research Team
Published on: Sep 28, 2016

According to the manufacturer, their LuxDerma Skin face cream can help brighten your skin’s appearance, smooth the look of stubborn fine lines, and firm your skin’s underlying structure.

As a result, we’re told you can expect improved skin tone, reduced sagging, and “visibly younger looking skin.”

In order to accomplish this, LuxDerma promises to use only whole collagen molecules and peptides that rebuild and rejuvenate the skin, whereas most of the competition uses collagen fragments.

This means the anti-aging therapy cream can deliver nourishing hydration, while preventing the damaging effects of free radicals and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

You have to admit that LuxDerma Skin makes some pretty big claims on their website, and you’re here to find out if there’s anything to them. In order to kick things off, let’s quickly discussed some skin basics.

What Does Collagen & Elastin Have to Do With Visible Aging?

The word collagen comes from the Greek work “kolla,” which means “glue.” And because collagen acts as an underlying support structure, or scaffolding, for bones, muscle, skin, and tendons (and because it makes up about 30% of the protein in the human body) it’s often referred to as the “glue” that holds the body together.

Gram for gram, collagen is even stronger than steel!

Another common protein found in humans is elastin, which provides connective tissue—including skin—with elasticity, so that it returns to its normal shape when stretched.

Pretty cool, right? Well, the problem is that over the years, our body naturally begins producing less and less of these key proteins, leading to sagging, lifeless skin, wrinkles, age spots, and more. In addition, lifestyle factors like UV exposure, smoking, not getting enough sleep, eating a poor diet, and more can exacerbate this process and lead to premature aging.

According to the manufacturer, though, LuxDerma can help address these problems. Let’s find out what science has to say.

What Do We Know About LuxDerma Skin’s Ingredients?

Although LuxDerma Skin’s manufacturer seems eager to talk about all the wonderful benefits you’ll achieve using the cream, they’re not exactly upfront about the ingredients it contains. In fact, the only two ingredients we’re told about are 1) whole collagen molecules and 2) peptides.

Now, it probably seems reasonable that if you’re short on collagen, applying it to your skin would provide some benefits, right? The problem is that your skin’s really good at keeping things out, so collagen molecules (whether whole or fragmented) are too big to penetrate. As a result, they either evaporate throughout the day or are washed off at night, without ever being absorbed.

Now, this isn’t to say that applying collagen won’t do any good. After all, it can help moisturize your skin, which, if you’re especially dry, could certainly help you look “years younger.”

Peptides, on the other hand, can be thought of as a middle step between amino acids and proteins. In other words, specific amino acid formations create peptides, which in turn can make proteins when formed in a specific way.

The problem is that there are hundreds of different peptides, and we’re not told which ones are found in LuxDerma Skin. And even if we did know, there’s no guarantee that these peptides will turn into a collagen molecule when applied to the skin.

How Much Will You Pay For LuxDerma Skin?

One tube of LuxDerma Skin might initially seem like a bargain since you’ll only have to pay $4.95 S&H.

If you didn’t read through the company’s Terms, though, you might’ve missed the fact that if you don’t cancel your trial within 14 days, you’ll be billed the full price of $89.72. Then, you’ll continue receiving a new bottle once per month through their autoship program, and charged $89.72 plus $4.95 S&H each time.

Outside of the trial, all LuxDerma purchases come with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H. Keep in mind this only applies to unopened merchandise.

In order to request a refund, or to cancel your trial or autoship enrollment, LuxDerma Skin’s customer service department can be reached at (888) 505-0392 or support@luxdermaskin.com.

Are LuxDerma Skin’s customers finding the price worthwhile?

What Can We Learn From Reviews for Products Like LuxDerma Skin?

Other than the standard affiliate websites masquerading as customer reviews, there wasn’t any online consumer feedback for LuxDerma Skin at the time of our research. However, we’ve found this to be par for the course since we often write about these products soon after they hit the market.

The good news? We’ve researched hundreds of different anti-aging products like LuxDerma Skin over the years, including ones that use the exact same website template and that are also only sold through free trials. This includes perpetually popular options like Vita Luminance, Blossom Youth Cream, Aviqua, and many others.

Now, LuxDerma is obviously a new entry into the field, so we’re not saying you’ll experience the same, but based on feedback from customers for these essentially identical products, common complaints include:

  • No results. Many customers also complain these products over-dry skin, and also tend to cause redness and rashes in those with sensitive skin.
  • High prices. As we learned above, these online-only anti-aging creams aren’t exactly inexpensive.
  • Less-than-stellar customer support. Often, customers complain that when they requested a refund or tried to cancel their trial, they were met with a new roadblock at every corner.

Again, we didn’t purchase LuxDerma Skin or test the cream firsthand, so we’re not insinuating this is what you’ll encounter. But given the same business model and website template as many of these other options, you might want to remain alerted.

How Much Younger Can You Expect to Look With LuxDerma Skin?

According to a disclaimer at the bottom of LuxDerma Skin’s website:

“The depictions on this page are fictitious and indicative of potential results. Representations regarding the efficacy and safety of LuxDerma Anti-Aging Face Therapy have not been scientifically substantiated or evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.”

While this is fairly common among products like anti-aging creams and nutritional supplements, we think it outlines an important point. What, exactly?

The word ‘potential’ means that which is possible. Given this, is it technically possible that LuxDerma can help you look younger by reducing common signs of aging, like wrinkles and age spots? Sure, we’re fully willing to admit that it’s possible.

Based on the limited information we’re given about LuxDerma’s ingredients, though—along with the clinical evidence indicating these ingredients either won’t penetrate your skin or won’t necessarily form into usable proteins—we’ll leave it up to you to decide if these results are probable. As well as whether or not you’re willing to spend nearly $100 to find out.

    They tell you it's $4.95. Then charge you $94.00. Call them and they will offer you 25%, then a 50% refund that day. If you want a full refund you got to jump through hoops and send an unopened box back. How you gonna know you don't want it if you don't try it?

    They said free sample, just pay shipping and handling. That’s completely false. They charge your account almost $200.00 because you didn’t cancel within 14 days from the day you paid S&H for your free sample. You call customer service and they tell you it is a trial but they won’t refund the money if the product is open. If you called it a trial how can the person try it without opening it? And on top of that, customer service hung up the phone on me. I might not get my money back, but I did report it to BBB, and I will not stop making this false advertisement public.

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

    Fraud

    • The Colony, TX,

    My wife ordered a special offer from TV of $7.99 each for the creme and serum. We were actually charged $89.99. We did not authorize additional shipments or charges, but we received additional product and were charged $94.96 this time around. I called the company and was assured a full refund. We'll see if that happens. DON'T do it. It isn't worth it. The product DOES NOT work, and the company charges without your consent.

    I signed up for the free trial, and they did end up sending me serum and facial cream monthly and then charged me, which I didn't like, as I want to order products on my schedule not there's. Anyway, I ended up loving the serum and face cream. It is the best I have ever used. If I wear makeup it goes under it wonderfully, and my skin is much more youthful, and I am pushing 59 years. Anyway, I would highly recommend LuxDerma. I was using L'Oreal serums and creams, and they were equivalent in price but, LuxDerma is superior in quality and results! I love this product.

    I wish I had read reviews. I did not receive the initial FREE TRIAL product, but they not only charged me the $4.95 + $4.95 for the two FREE TRIAL OFFER I NEVER RECEIVED, they charged my account $89.95 + $79.95 for two more bottles I NEVER RECEIVED. My bank will refund the money, I will call BBB, and write reviews to try to get the word out not to fall for the BS.

    • New York,

    I had the same experiences as everyone else on this site. This is an awful company that deals in lies and deception.

    Fourteen days as a trial of any skincare product is a joke. When I called, I spoke to a hostile, condescending women who was outrageous in telling me I have to read more clearly. This is probably one of the worst customer service experiences I've had in my life. To top it off, the products are useless. I saw zero benefit with the eye or skin serums.

    So, buyer beware. A bunch of psychopaths and scam artists run this business.

    Horrible experience

    • Boston, MA,
    • Apr 27, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I signed up for the "free trial" (which was only free for a short time) and then was charged the $200 for both of the "free" products when I didn't return them in the short trial window. Also, it is a subscription, so after I was irritated about the initial charge, I was charged a second month ($200) before I even received the product!

    When I called to stop the product I was told I couldn't because the only cancellation window was the initial trial. After waiting on hold for over 30 minutes, I was escalated to a supervisor who offered me two options: keep the product for a 60% discounted rate or send it back at a 30% discount.

    I haven't even opened the second box. I stopped using the first shipment as it didn't do anything for my skin except make it red. They have very small customer service hours, making it difficult to call at convenient times, and the hold times were over 20 minutes on the three times I called. They never sent any terms of agreements in the product box or to my email outlining any of this.

    Overall, it was a waste of time and money. I wouldn't recommend the product even with the "free trial."

    Bad business

    This company is a fraud! Do not buy.

    The advertisement is for a trial size, which you think you're getting and instead, they enroll you in a renewal program that sends products every month without your knowledge, approval or signature. The products are astronomically expensive, in the hundreds of dollars for a small bottle.

    They are rude and sarcastic with their customers! I cannot tell you how many people they have done this to and they should be out of business. They also advertise that they are affiliated with Shark Tank, and they are not. Totally a scam company and should be in jail for fraud for what they are doing to people! Check on Facebook for comments from jilted customers. Thank you. I have filed a dispute with my charge card company against this company!
