There are an awful lot of positive Plexaderm reviews out there on various websites and blogs.
It’s got quite a following and a lot of claims made about the amazing results it has on the appearance of wrinkles.
I wanted to take a look in detail at Plexaderm eye cream, and the claims around how good it is at eliminating bags under the eyes and the general appearance of wrinkles on the face.
I’m skeptical about some of the claims, and I want to get to the bottom of them to see what the truth is about this anti-aging cream.
What Is Plexaderm?
It is a topically applied anti aging skin serum that claims to work instantly.
It is meant to lift wrinkles and lessen bags under the eyes, giving a healthier and younger looking complexion.
It’s also often called Plexaderm rapid reduction cream, and sometimes rapid wrinkle remover.
The company who make it claim that it uses a special technology that creates a genuine alternative to surgery or Botox injections.
That’s quite a set of claims.
So is there any ingredient in this anti-aging cream that can have the dramatic effects the company who make Plexaderm claim?
The company is actually quite vague about the actual ingredients in this product, but they claims that it contains:
- Skin tightening crystals
- Moisturizing agents
- Light diffusing ingredients
That’s enough detail to give a good insight into how the product tries to achieve what it sets out to do.
Basically the skin tightening crystals are silicate.
This is a pretty common anti-aging cream ingredient.
This product is therefore a short-term filler and tightener and not a long-term solution.
It will fill in your wrinkles, help to smooth the fine lines and create the illusion of smooth skin by altering the way light bounces on your face.
In effect, this is a bit of a mirage product.
Does Plexaderm Really Work?
The company does not list any specific scientific studies or clinical trials that prove its product lives up to the claims they make.
There is precious little evidence to back up what they say.
Ingredients are general and common with too many other similar products, so there’s nothing specifically in the anti aging cream here that can do anything different to the multitude of other products on the market.
It is applied using a syringe style container.
I think that’s designed to make it feel a bit like Botox.
In terms of how it works, it creates the illusion of wrinkles vanishing by temporarily filling them in and putting a sheen on your skin that bounces light off to minimize the effect of light and dark caused by wrinkles.
So it is a mask that works for a few hours.
That may be great for you, but I think that the description of it as a skin serum that instantly starts to change the effects of aging are very over the top.
One positive is that there don’t seem to be any notable Plexaderm side effects beyond the usual disclaimer that some people may suffer minor skin irritation.
I think that also highlights how general the product ingredients are.
Plexaderm Side Effects
According to the official website of the product, no side effects are expected to develop in the user.
This seems beneficial at first, but when we look at reviews found on the third-party website, it seems like some users have reported side effects.
In particular a burning sensation, as well as swelling.
This may be due to an allergic reaction, making it important for users to first do an allergy test before applying the serum to their face.
Where To Buy Plexaderm?
Cost of this serum is generally quite high for the limited effects it can produce as an eye cream.
Generally you can only buy it from the main website or official retail partners.
You can occasionally find Plexaderm on Amazon and eBay, but this is not an official sales source.
I find this quite concerning.
If you do a search on Google for “buy plexaderm” you find that apart from the main website, there are virtually no other sources you can purchase this product from.
Why is it being kept so tightly sold and kept away from general sale sites?
I’m guessing because they want to control the feedback of this product which I think would be mostly negative.
In terms of price:
- 1 Bottle (TV Special): $59.95
- 3 Bottles: Buy 2 Get 1 Free Special (Better Value): $119.90
- 6 Bottles (Best Value): $229.80
One thing to watch out for if buying from the main website is that there is a preferred customer program.
This is a way of sometimes unwittingly locking you into a repeat purchase cycle using automated billing.
Many people have been caught out by this without realizing they had signed up to receive repeat billing.
Plexaderm Reviews & Complaints 2018
I have to say I’m incredibly suspicious of a product when I can’t find it sold anywhere with real and unedited user reviews.
This is the case with this product.
You can only really buy it from the company’s own website and a few other partnered sellers, this means they tightly control the feedback left for the product.
I can’t find it sold anywhere where there seemed to be genuine customer testimonials.
This is one of the first reviews of a skin product I have ever done where I cannot find what I believe are genuine user reviews.
Plexaderm Review: Final Verdict
I think you may have already guessed that I’m pretty skeptical about whether Plexaderm eye cream does much.
It contains general ingredients, there is nothing special in it that can do what the company claims.
I’m also very suspicious about it when the company appears to be trying to control how much user feedback is out there by not selling the product on websites where you can leave a feedback.
It feels like they want to manage customer reactions.
Let’s look at the pros of Plexaderm wrinkle cream:
- Can temporarily minimize the signs of wrinkles and aging skin.
- Can visibly and instantly change the tone of your skin.
- No real noted side effects.
In terms of the cons:
- Using too much can tighten the skin and weaken the muscles.
- Product ingredients are general and poorly discussed.
- No clinical evidence to back up the claims made.
- Can only be bought online through a few shops.
- Preferred seller program can track you.
On top of that, the final thing I want to note is that although there is a money back guarantee on the main website, you can only return Plexaderm if it is unopened, which kind of defeats the purpose of trying it.
I think I have to say that I am completely skeptical that Plexaderm offers a solution to anti-aging or is worth the money.
I have to suggest avoiding this product and instead recommending giving XYZ Smart Collagen anti-aging cream try instead.
