About Rovelle Skin Care
Rovelle Skin Care is an anti-aging eye serum that’s claimed to be a non-invasive way to firm and improve skin, lessen wrinkles, and restore your youth within 24 hours.
In order to accomplish this, Rovelle Eye Serum is claimed to feature a blend of scientifically formulated anti-aging and anti-inflammatory ingredients that improve skin renewal, prolong skin cell lifespan, increase collagen production, improve moisturization, and strengthen muscles within the skin. These include:
- Rose petal extracts
- Wine extracts
According to the manufacturer, their study showed that Rovelle Anti-Aging can provide 78% less wrinkles, an 89% younger complexion, and 95% smoother and softer skin by applying the serum during your morning and evening beauty rituals. However, they also claim that Rovelle should be used continuously for 3 months in order to achieve optimal results.
So let’s get right to it: Should you hand over your hard-earned money for Rovelle Skin Care? Consider the following:
The Rash (Pun Intended) of Trial-Based Anti-Aging Products
Over the past year or so, we’ve reviewed dozens of anti-aging products here at HighYa, including popular options such as DermAktive, Nuvie Skin Care, AbsoluteDerma, and many others. And the truth is that many of these products make the same claims; in fact, except for their names, many of these appear to be the same products from the same manufacturers.
We’ll talk more about what these trial-based anti-aging products have in common in a moment, although to get a broad picture of the situation, we’d strongly recommend reading our article titled Exposing the Widespread Scam of Anti-Aging Products & Free Trials.
Are Rovelle’s Ingredients Effective for Anti-Aging?
The only ingredients contained in Rovelle Skin Care that we’re told about are phytoceramides, rose petal extracts, wine extracts, and Lavandox.
According to Truth in Aging, phytoceramides are “a lipid that keeps your skin hydrated and plump” that the author noted “seem [to be] a good addition to our skincare regimen.” However, phytoceramide research related to anti-aging benefits appears to be limited, and most often reference only moisturization.
On the other hand, there seems to be insufficient clinical evidence available showing the topical application of rose oil or wine extract (or the resveratrol it contains) can provide any kind of benefits, anti-aging or otherwise.
Finally, Lavandox (derived from Spanish Lavender Oil) is a proprietary ingredient manufactured by Barnet Products, although there is no independent clinical research showing the product performs as advertised.
In short, other than moisturization, it doesn’t appear that any of Rovelle Skin Care’s ingredients will provide the anti-aging benefits claimed by the manufacturer. On top of this, there isn’t a product label provided on the product’s website, so there’s no way to confirm how much of each ingredient the serum contains.
Can We Trust Rovelle Anti-Aging’s Claims?
Considering the fact that Rovelle Serum’s products almost certainly won’t provide any of the benefits claimed by the manufacturer, what other proof do they offer?
According to a graphic on the serum’s website, Rovelle Skin Care resulted in 78% less wrinkles, an 89% younger complexion, and 95% smoother and softer skin. However, other than claiming this information was obtained through “their study,” no additional information is provided and no references are cited.
As such, it’s out opinion that these claims are overblown at best, and pure marketing hype at worst.
But we’d like to put one of these claims (89% younger complexion) into perspective in order to point out how ridiculous it might be.
Think of it this way: If a 60-year old applied Rovelle Eye Serum regularly and experienced an 89% more youthful complexion, this means their appearance would be reduced to that of a 5 year old. Does this seem realistic to you?
No Customer Reviews for Rovelle Eye Serum
Rovelle Skin Care is only marketed through a group of independent affiliates who earn commissions from each sale of the product they refer. And in order to boost sales, these affiliates will often create fake review websites to purposely misinformation and mislead you into buying Rovelle Eye Serum.
Fake affiliate reviews aside, there weren’t any legitimate online customer reviews for Rovelle at the time of our research, and the company wasn’t listed with the Better Business Bureau.
With this said, based on more than 260 HighYa reader reviews (as of 4/20/15) for the trial-based anti-aging products noted above, they held an average rating of just 1.5 stars. Common complaints cited failure to work, poor customer service, and difficulties cancelling free trials/autoship programs (more about this next).
Granted, you may not experience the same with Rovelle Firming Eye Serum, but it’s something to keep in mind nonetheless.
Rovelle Ultra Firming Eye Serum Pricing & Refund Policy
Rovelle Ultra Firming Eye Serum is only available through a 15-day trial for $3.95 S&H, for which you’ll receive a full 30-day supply of the product.
Then, once your trial has expired, you’ll be charged $84.95 for the full price of the product, and will also be enrolled in the company’s autoship program. This means you’ll continue receiving a regular supply of Rovelle Eye Serum once per month, and your credit card will be billed $84.95 each time.
Important note: Based on our experience, free trials and autoship programs are simply ways to charge you full price and loop you into recurring charges, often for a product you didn’t really want in the first place. As such, we generally recommend avoiding products sold only through these methods.
Outside of the trial, Rovelle Anti-Aging comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges.
In order to cancel your trial, stop your automatic shipments, or request a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service at 888-445-6518.
Why We Think You Should Avoid Rovelle Eye Serum
Chopping to the point: As you probably guessed, based on the fact that:
- There is insufficient clinical evidence showing its ingredients can provide reliable, visible anti-aging benefits,
- The company provides zero evidence for any of its clinical claims,
- The product is only available through a “free” trial and subsequent autoship program,
- Other, nearly identical trial-based anti-aging products come with very poor online customer reviews,
…we’d recommend speaking with your dermatologist about more effective anti-aging serums than Rovelle Skin Care.
I fell for the "risk free trial," pay only shipping and handling charges scam that this company puts out. I figured, what have I got to lose? I paid the $3.95 shipping charges and received the product. The face cream goes on nice and smoothly, and for me it produced a slight tingling sensation. It was pleasant, and I imagined my skin might be somewhat tighter.
Nothing on the site, nor in the emails I received mentioned anything about a subscription or being charged $84.95 for the product. I called my credit card company with a dispute on the charge and learned that Rovelle not only made the initial charge, but they intended to charge me the same amount monthly. Capital One was able to get them on the phone and have the charge removed and the supposed subscription canceled. I will never again opt in on a "free trial," especially if there is no explanation of future charges.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
