Plexaderm Skincare Review: Ingredients, Side Effects, Cost

By HighYa Research Team
Published on: Jun 15, 2016

How fantastic would it be to “instantly remove fine lines and wrinkles in minutes”? What about visibly reducing under eye puffiness and crows feet?

Plexaderm Skincare, a new product line from True Earth Health Products, promises to use silicates and hyaluronic acid to lift wrinkles, tighten bags, and create a “smoother, healthier, more youthful looking complexion”—without prescriptions, expensive injections, or painful surgery.

According to the company, the process works over four steps:

  1. Shake the syringe well. Remove the cap and the white tip, and then rotate the applicator to the unlocked position.
  2. Push the applicator, which will dispense a small amount of Plexaderm onto your fingertip.
  3. Rub the cream around your eyes in a gentle upward and outward motion until fully absorbed. Make sure you don’t get any in your eyes.
  4. Pat with a damp cloth. Wait 10 minutes and then apply the Hyaluronic Moisturizing Serum.

After following these steps, the company claims Plexaderm’s effects will last for hours, while “additional light-diffusing ingredients boost these age-defying effects.”

You don’t mind paying a pretty penny for anti-aging products, but you’re only interested in buying ones that will deliver results. Is Plexaderm Skincare the real deal, or just a big phony? Here’s what we learned during our research.

What Causes Under Eye Wrinkles, Bags, and Puffiness?

Wrinkles (whether around your eyes or elsewhere on your face), under eye bags, and puffiness all stem from one primary cause: aging.

Specifically, when it comes to wrinkles, this is a direct result of collagen and elastin loss, which work to support skin and provide elasticity. As we get older, our body produces less and less of these proteins, which means the “scaffolding” that props up our skin is less able to do its job.

This wrinkling process can also be accelerated by exposing your skin to too much sun, smoking cigarettes, and other lifestyle factors.

The bad news is that collagen and elastin loss—and the wrinkles this process causes—aren’t the only side effect of natural aging. The muscles around your eyes can also weaken, causing fat (that once helped support your eyelids!) to migrate to your lower eyelid, resulting in bags and puffiness. Fluid retention is also a common cause.

The good news is that there are many home remedies you can use to fight against bags and puffiness, and wrinkles can be filled at your dermatologist’s office. What if you don’t want to undergo any procedures though (however mild)? Will Plexaderm’s ingredients deliver results?

Are Plexaderm’s Ingredients Effective?

All we’re told by the manufacturer is that “the ingredients in Plexaderm have been available for years, but out formulation has only been available under the Plexaderm name.” Obviously, this tells us nothing.

Elsewhere on the Plexaderm website, we’re told that their Rapid Wrinkle Remover Cream contains silicates. The problem is that silicates are the most abundant minerals in existence, and there are dozens of different kinds, each with their own uses.

With this in mind, perhaps some of the most common in anti-aging products are magnesium silicate, otherwise known as talc, aluminum silicate, and sodium silicate. The concern is that these are often used for things other than anti-aging (such as thickening agents or preservatives), so it’s unclear how they’ll help reduce under eye bags or puffiness.

On the other hand, hyaluronic acid is commonly found in anti-aging products, since it helps skin retain moisture, thereby plumping and filling in wrinkles. Without a label, though, there’s no way to know how much Plexaderm’s skincare products contain, or there’s enough to provide meaningful results.

One of the ways we can gauge Plexaderm’s effectiveness, though, is by reading what customers have to say, which is what we’ll discuss in a second. First, let’s find out if you’ll experience anything unwanted with Plexaderm Skincare.

Will Plexaderm Cause Any Side Effects or Problems?

As you might imagine, without knowing about most of Plexaderm’s ingredients, there’s no way to know what kinds of side effects you might reasonably experience—if any.

In appropriate concentrations, hyaluronic acid rarely causes side effects, although it can cause allergic reactions in some instances. If you have any concerns, be sure to consult with your dermatologist.

What Kinds of Reviews Are Out There for Plexaderm Skincare?

In a nutshell? Nothing legitimate. Instead, you’ll come across a lot of affiliate websites pretending to be the real deal, but nothing you might use to make a more informed decision.

We did learn that Plexaderm Skincare products are manufactured by True Earth Health Products, based out of Farmingdale, NY. The company wasn’t listed with the BBB at the time of our research, their website only consisted of a home page, and it doesn’t appear they manufacture any other products.

How Much Do Plexaderm’s Skincare Products Cost?

When checking out on the Plexaderm website, you’ll be presented with two options:

Plexaderm Rapid Wrinkle Remover Cream

  • 1 Bottle: $79.90 plus $6.95 S&H (free shipping with enrollment in Preferred Customer Program—more about this below)
  • 3 Bottles: $159.80 plus $6.95 S&H (free shipping with enrollment in Preferred Customer Program)

Plexaderm Ultimate Makeover Kit

Includes 1 tube of Rapid Wrinkle Remover and 1 bottle of Hyaluronic Moisturizing Serum:

  • 1 Kit: $99.97 plus $6.95 (free shipping with enrollment in Preferred Customer Program)
  • 3 Kits: $199.94 plus $6.95 S&H (free shipping with enrollment in Preferred Customer Program)

If you choose the Preferred Customer option, this means you’ll receive a new supply of Rapid Wrinkle Remover or fresh Ultimate Makeover Kit once every 60 or 180 days (depending on the quantity you originally purchased), and charged accordingly each time.

Important note: While Plexaderm’s products come with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges (in case “you do not see or feel the results that you expected”), there’s really no way to know what kinds of results you’ll experience since this only applies to new, unused product. In other words, as soon as you open it, you own it.

Nonetheless, customer service can be reached at (800) 681-0366 or customercare@plexaderm.com.

Our Bottom Line: Should You Give Plexaderm a Try?

Even though the HighYa team has reviewed hundreds of anti-aging products over the years, we were admittedly surprised by the before and after videos on the Plexaderm Skincare website. I mean, can you really expect their Rapid Wrinkle Remover Cream to work in 10 minutes or less?

We’re not so sure. And even if Plexaderm does work as advertised, we’re not clear on how long you might realistically expect the results to last. Why?

Because, like most of the other anti-aging products we’ve reviewed, Plexaderm’s manufacturer didn’t deliver any clinical evidence to back up the claims—they didn’t even think it’s necessary to tell us about any of the ingredients it contains!

Based on these two factors alone—unless you have a habit of paying a lot of money for unknown products, packed with unknown ingredients, brought to you by unknown companies—we’d recommend making an appointment with your dermatologist instead of place an order for Plexaderm Skincare products.

    I love Plexaderm

    My favorites are the Mineral Powder foundation (it really does smooth out my complexion and doesn't look like powder after it is applied) and the Rapid Reduction Cream (it really does work on diminishing the bags under the eyes). I wish I would have found these products sooner.

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

    I received my item in the mail today and used it for the first time. I followed the directions, and within 5 to 10 minutes, I went to the mirror and I looked like a totally different person. My bags were all gone away and I looked it at least five years younger. To my surprise, I was very happy with the product and will be using it in the future. Thank you, Plexaderm, for your product. I truly appreciate it and am very grateful.

    As I have gotten older I've been developing bags under my eyes - they seem to be growing with age. I had tried hundreds of products, and some would work for a week or two. Then somewhere along the line, the product wouldn't help. So I was always searching for something new. Until I saw the Plexaderm Skin Care commercial on TV, demonstrating the reduction of a man's bags under his eyes.

    I've been using Plexaderm Skincare Rapid Reduction Cream every day for over nine months. It's the only product that has reduced my eye bags all day. I've recommended to my family and friends. Sometimes my eye bags are so large that I need a second application - but it works. I've even applied the cream over my makeup (it still worked). I won't leave home without it.

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

    This stuff is magic. I have been using it for a good year and a half, and once I figured it out, it is terrific. When I say figure it out, I mean that you actually have to wait the time to make sure it has set. I do everything first; clean face, I put on my face serum, then moisturizer. After those have been completely absorbed, then I put on the Plexiderm. I put it around my eyes, then the lines on my forehead. Then I sit and wait, or I blow dry it, but then after about 10 minutes, everything is perfect. Then I do my make up. This stuff is just magic.

    Amazing!

    I bought it and wasn't expecting much if anything at all, just hoping it would not bother my annoyingly sensitive skin. To my UTTER shock and astonishment, it WORKED. It truly works! If I could afford it, I would wear it every freakin day! I'm still in shock every time I tell someone. But it does, it really works! It reminds me if the movie with Golie Hawn and Meryl Streep - Death Becomes Her.

    Works 100% for me, highly recommend!

    I am 52 years old and have had bags under my eyes for years and always wanted to get rid of them and this 100% did the trick. I was skeptical at first, but I am now convinced, and it lasts all day for me. To the people posting negative stuff, saying it doesn't work, they are either lying or using the product wrong. Wash your face, shake the tube and apply lightly. It's that simple. Lots of fake reviewers to try and damage products reputation, but I am a real reviewer and not a paid reviewer, so all I can say is try it. It works!

    Puffy under-eyes for years

    I was shocked; I didn't think it was going to work. Boy, was I wrong! The results for me were 80-90%. Even the darkness with the puffy bags disappeared. I am 50 and have naturally soft skin, I'm not sure if that is a factor, but my wife's first response to watching it work was: "we have to buy stock in this company."

    Very happy that I've finally found something that works.

    Miracle cream

    So I did my research on this product and scrolled through reviews. After reading some good, some bad, and some just mean hearted, I decided to give it a try.

    At first, it didn't work as well I thought it should and was not happy. My wife tried it for our date night and had great results!

    Me being a man using eye cream sounded kinda weird (and it is to me), but I let my wife apply it correctly and I received similar results (not good as her), and I am convinced it works! Just follow the directions, and you will say the same. Good luck if you do, an you're missing out if you don't!

    I'm freakin BLOWN AWAY!

    Woohooo! HOLY CRAP! Okay seriously, I was pretty friggin skeptical about this product but bought it anyway. After all, I'm 55 years old and can't stand wrinkles. Okay, so I put some on, maybe a little more than a dab, but wow! I went and grabbed a cup of coffee, felt my face getting a little tighter, sat down and had a smoke (yes I smoke). Well, I guess about 12-14 minutes passed, and I went to the mirror to check, and I smiled. I just stood there with a stupid freakin grin on my face before running down the hallway to show my husband. I was all giddy and goofy. He said, and I quote "You looked gorgeous before, but damn...it's like I have a whole new woman in my life." Yeah okay, so he's just telling me what I wanna hear but I'm blown away, my wrinkles are GONE, but for how long? That's what I'd like to know.

    I bought a three-month supply and am wondering if this stuff only works day to day. Am I gonna wake up all wrinkle-faced again tomorrow? I'll let you guys know. Hahaha! I really should have taken before pictures. I'll do that tomorrow if I wake up a wrinkled hag again. LOL! I'm tripping out here. I don't usually like gawking at myself in the mirror too long, but wow, now I can't stop staring at ME. Haha! I can't and won't say I recommend it yet until I know this is going to last all day at least. I do wish this was a one month like thing, but I highly doubt it. Anyway, I'm happy with my TODAY results. Good luck to others who buy it.

    It is an incredible product! I am a guy that has had bags under his eyes since I was a little kid. I bought the sample pack with six uses just to check it out, and I will definitely be buying the large size. Within two to three minutes my bags and my smile wrinkles around my eyes were completely gone! It's worth trying the sample pack to find out for yourself. I bet you'll buy the full-size one also. Thank you Plexaderm.

    Worked but irritated my skin

    THIS PRODUCT WORKS. Unfortunately, it wasn't compatible with my skin. It stung when applying, and my skin would be sore for a day or so after use. But it absolutely and positively worked 100%. They were great and gave me a full refund. No reason not to try it for yourself.
