What is it?

Revyve Skin is a topical skin care product that is designed to be a moisturizer and collagen generator. Their advertising calls it a potent anti-aging cream that can help repair damaged skin while also preventing future damage from occurring. Their product is supposed to tighten the skin cells, which makes the skin look younger and also makes it more reflective, which helps prevent the damaging effects of UV rays.

Our team of health and beauty professionals has decided that the top rated product available is Kremotex. Their blend outperformed others in metrics like elasticity, color correction, and cellular turnover. Click here to see pictures of Kremotex users before they began using the product and after.

Revyve Skin Ingredients and Side Effects

One of the major issues with the marketing of Revyve Skin is that they do not post their complete ingredients list anywhere in their promotional materials. Instead, they discuss their ingredients mostly just in terms of their effects.

The advertising of Revyve Skin makes vague generic claims about being moisturizing and helping to improve collagen production, however there is very little information about how they actually go about achieving those claims. The most specific that they get is that they briefly mention in their materials one concrete detail:

Whole Collagen Molecules

 Whole Collagen Molecules: This is the most specific ingredient that Revyve Skin lists, and it is not a particularly good one in terms of improving the health and appearance of the skin.

Collagen is the main building block of the skin and being able to encourage collagen generation is one of the most effective ways to get skin to look young, plump, and healthy. Because of this it is natural to assume that collagen must be one of the best ingredients for skin health, however that ignores some of the more complicated ways that the body works.

Collagen is a larger molecule that has trouble being absorbed by the skin when applied topically. Most of the collagen in a skin cream, lotion, wax, or serum will remain on top of the skin’s outer layer where it provides no nutritional benefit to the skin.

Topical collagen does get ground into damaged areas of the skin, where it can fill in gaps and cover up discolorations in the skin. The overall effect is a smoothing out of skin tone and texture that helps the appearance of the skin temporarily, but does nothing for its overall functionality.

The majority of topically applied collagen will be washed away the next time someone cleans their face or takes a shower, however some of the molecules may actually end up getting absorbed by the skin. Even those molecules, though, do not actually provide the kind of nutritional benefits that help the skin directly.

Collagen is a complex compound of proteins, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that has to be broken back down into its constituent parts before it can be utilized by the body. These elements are generally useful for a number of biochemical functions and there is no guarantee that they will ever be utilized in the collagen generation process again.

There is very little danger associated with collagen, and the only side effects that have been connected to its usage relate to ingestion. While generally harmless, expecting to rub collagen on your skin and have it become part of your skin would be just as effective as rubbing an animal’s hair on your hair and expecting it to become a part of it.

Revyve Skin Quality of Ingredients

It is unclear how Revyve Skin expects potential customers to accurately evaluate their product from the total lack of information that they offer about it. Manufacturers of quality products try hard to show off their ingredients blend because they know that comparison between brands works in their favor.

Prominently displayed ingredients panels also allow users to find products that are safe and effective for their skin type and needs. Oily skin, dry skin, and old skin all have different nutrition and care requirements. Many consumers have allergy issues with some products, or are taking specific kinds of prescription medication that could have dangerous interactions with others. People have a right to know what they are putting onto and into their bodies.

The other major issue with Revyve Skin is the one product that they do choose to mention. It is not wrong that a customer wouldn’t know how the body processes collagen, however it is strange that a beauty products manufacturer wouldn’t.

Users are forced to ask themselves the question of whether they believe that a company that specializes in skin care is ignorant about the way the body makes new skin, or if they are just trying to sell products that they know don’t work to consumers who will purchase them based on the value of the word “collagen” alone. We are unable to fairly assume what the reason is in Revyve Skin’s case, however neither explanation is very favorable for the company.

The Price and Quality of Revyve Skin

Unlike most traditional products, there are no stores that carry Revyve Skin, nor are there even any independent online distributors. Instead, the only option available top those individuals that decide they would like to try Revyve Skin is to sign up for their “Free Trial Offer.”

This offer’s name is somewhat misleading because for the vast majority of people that sign up for it, it will not end up being free. The offer is actually an enrollment form for their automatic renewal program, which send the users a 1 oz. jar of their product every month and charges their credit cards $89.69 for the service.

This price is way out of line even if users were aware that they are being charged, and the evidence online shows that many, or even most, of them are not. Some customers have been charged hundreds of dollars before they caught the scam, which often times doesn’t even keep sending the skin cream.

EDITOR’S TIP: For the best results, our experts recommend using anti-aging creams for at least 3 months. Save your money by buying a few bottles at once.

Customer Opinions of Revyve Skin

Many customers are furious with the product that they were sent as part of the “Free Trial Offer” and had comments similar to these:

“I don’t think skin creams are supposed to give you acne worse than when you were a teenager.”

“I got the free sample for my mom and she hated it so much that she still brings it up every time I see her.”

“OH DEAR GOD WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MY FACE?!?!”

Negative reviews covered a number of topics beyond just their manipulative business practices. They addressed the texture and smell of the product, as well as the sensation that it gave their faces when they applied it.

They complained about it not moisturizing and even seeming to dry the skin further, they complained that their skin looked more wrinkled than before they started, and they complained of other side effects like acne, redness, swelling, and hyperpigmentation.

Conclusion – Does Revyve Skin Work?

In order for our panel to recommend a product they have to believe that it can make the skin function better, not just look better, it has to be safe and effective for the vast majority of users, and it has to cost a fair and respectful price. By all of these measurements, Revyve Skin is not an acceptable product.

They do not disclose any of their ingredients except one, which is not even known to be effective. Not only that, but it is also known to be an ingredient that unscrupulous manufacturers use to hook unsuspecting customers.

Their “Free Trial Offer” is unethical if not illegal, and their customer reviews of their product make it seem not just ineffective but also possibly dangerous. For all of these reasons, our team cannot recommend this product.

Kremotex is a safe, reliable skin care option. Their ingredients are formulated to be mild on sensitive skin but powerfully effective at regenerating damaged tissues. Kremotex’s entire ingredients list can be seen by visiting this webpage.

    I got billed but received no product for the last two months?!

    • Pamela says:

      Me too! I called until I got an email from a manager and I told him I was posting on their website and on BBB and he kept trying to calm me but I said I needed a complete refund and I finally got it! And I am 59 yrs old and have had pimples since I used it!!!

  2. Deborah Smith says:

    Does not work!!! Beware if you don’t cancel they will charge 89.00 and if you do cancel before the trail period is up they still want to charge you 29.00. I had to threaten to turn my bank loose on them before she backed down.

  3. Anna says:

    They are running scams for weight loss, beauty creams and more, plus this is a barely legal scam that can fool even a sharp consumer ——- THAT’S VERY TRUE!…..And after of months of thorough search I finally found who’s behind this messy big scams, he’s name is RACELLON MACASPAC, (better check his facebook). The name of his (SCAM) company is MAX PROFIT SOLUTIONS INC., operating somewhere in southeast asia. The next time that you receive a call offering you this skin care products, slimming products, male enhancement, or memory enhancement… with a 14 day trial for a 1 month supply….DON’T BELIEVE, IT’S A TOTALLY SCAM.

    I wish I’d seen this before I ordered. I discovered the charges on my bank account and contacted them. They only want to give me a partial credit. I asked to speak to a supervisor, strangely, one was not available. I’ve opened a dispute with my bank also. They told me it is in the terms and conditions to cancel by within 14 days, and who reads those. I didn’t even know it was in the email confirming the charge. But the T & C also say a refund will be issued if it has not passed 30 days, which I sent them a copy of in a follow-up email.

    This is the biggest rip off ever!!!!’ Do not order because they say free for cost of shipping then they bill you $172.90.

  6. Raquel says:

    BEWARE: This company is a SCAM!!!!! Avoid at ALL costs even entertaining the idea of even ordering this product.
    After watching an advertisement with HGTV Fixer-Upper Star Johanna Gaines endorsing this brand and seeing the “incredible” effects of this product, I chose to order and give it a try. On the on-line order form (as well as the AD seen earlier), the company was offering a promo deal where it was offered to try the product for FREE, as long as $5 for Shipping & Handling was paid. I proceeded to do so and received my product 3 weeks later.
    Unknown to me, what I had actually done was purchase a subscription from this joke of a company. Once I received the product, I came across some of these forums and had I not taken the moment to investigate and call this company, I would’ve been charged immediately a total of $100 for this dangerous product; far from good for ANY skin type, from now, until I’d figure out money was being withdrawn from my bank account, without my consent.
    When I placed the call to cancel my order, I was rudely informed by the incompetent and far from professional Customer Service Rep., that if I wanted to cancel my subscription and “not pay $90 for a product [I] didn’t want”, I had to pay an additional $20 to cancel my subscription. After going back and forth with her for a few minutes because I REFUSED to give these scammers any more of my money, she said she’d cancel my subscription and I didn’t need to do anything else or even pay the $20 “cancellation fee”. Once I realized she was trying to con me out of more money I didn’t need to pay, I requested to speak to a manager. She replied that one was not available and that I didn’t need to speak to anyone else since the subscription I had never signed up for, was now cancelled.
    I insisted in speaking to upper level management and as rudely as she handled the entire called, the Rep stated no one would be available to speak with me and that our conversation was done.
    BEWARE ANYONE WHO ORDERS AND PRODUCTS FROM THIS COMPANY AND CHECK YOUR BANK ACCOUNT TO MAKE SURE YOU’RE NOT BEING SCAMMED BY THEM, IF YOU HAPPEN TO MAKE THE MISTAKE, LIKE I DID. I GUESS JOHANNA GAINES DIDN’T DO HER RESEARCH EITHER TO ASSOCIATE HER NAME WITH THIS CRIMINAL BRAND.

    I thought I was ordering a trial sample for $6.95 for the face cream and $6.95 for eye cream. I paid the amount that was charged. But apparently I didn’t read the fine print which said you have 14 days to cancel or you will be charged again. I just happen to check my bank account today and had been charged $89.95. When I called about the charge I was told I didn’t cancel within 14 days and also I was going to be charged $82.95 for the eye cream. I explained that obviously I didn’t read the fine print and I couldn’t afford almost $200 for face cream. He finally agreed to cancel the $82.95 charge and take 35% off the $89.95 charge. Not much I could do but, to accept that. Just hoping to get the word out to always read the fine print.

    • Bernadette says:

      I looked at my checking account today and seen the same charges as you I called my bank because I did not know who took the money my bank said they are going to investigate and get my money put back. I called the number on my account and they said that I signed up for and account I was very pissed off and told the lady put my dam money back into my account today or I will call my lawyer and the better business bureau . so sad that people do that to us .. oh and the lady said you had 14 days after trying your free trial I never got it I told her.

  8. Edna says:

    Very deceptive company. Borderline fraudulent. Product mediocre at best. They use the typical trickery in getting you to order and only pay shipping, whereas the product is only free if you stop the order process within the 14 day trial period, which is not made clear up front. DON”T GIVE THIS COMPANY YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER.

    SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM!

  10. Tami Rich says:

    After noticing charges of $82.95 and $89.95 on my VISA I contacted Revyve customer service to remove the charges. I was informed when I purchased the “trail” sample of your eye and face cream for the shipping and handling fee of $6.95 each was really an authorization to charge my account in 14 days for the products total price. I will admit my error in even thinking a mail order company would be any good, let alone faithful, it is now confirmed. The Revyve company knows exactly what it is doing. First, it gets a buyer attention by showing “Joanna Gaines” saying she is leaving HGTV for her own skin line and then you start promoting your product, with the customer thinking they are going to try a Joanna Gaines product. Then, Revyve tells you for a shipping fee you can get your “trail” product, which as you well know it is not a trail bottle but a scam to charge your account for the full amount.

    When I agreed to try Revyve products, it was in good faith. I fully and honestly was interested in trying your product and hoped to purchase on a regular basis. Your “trail” period of 14 days from the “date of purchase” does not give a customer time to see if they like the product, let alone does what you claim it does. I won’t ever know if your product is any good, does what you claim or let any one else know if it works or not, because I will not use it now. A company who purposely deceives its customers is not a company I want to do business with and something must be really wrong with your products if you have to get customers to purchase using underhanded tactics.

    Very Unsatisfied Customer,
    Tami Rich

    I feel sorry for all you ppl that did buy the trail skin care. I was one also who did. What a scam scam scam.. I thought they only took $ 6.95 out my acct. Twice they did!! Then thank god i started reading everyone complaints. . and how they took money afterwards out of ur accts. I ordered my trail on the 11th of june got it on the 15th. I called customer service this morning told them to completely cancel me & they told me they wouldn’t charge me the $ 89.95 but as a good customer he said he was only gonna charge me $ 29.95 instead.. I blew my mind.. Then he tells me im being recorded & i told him that was fine & that i was recording him!! He told me he was a supervisor there & for me to be put on hold while he talked to his supervisor. .. Now im pissed. He comes back on i snapped told him i was not paying the $29.95. I also told him i went to there web site & could cancel within 14 days.. Finally i actually had to to him to repeat back to me that i was completely canceled & no money what so ever i taken out of my acct. I also made him send me email stating im canceled for that crap… He finally did it… What a scam & a joke that place is.. They should b shut down.. I wish you all luck..

    This is the worst scam ever why cant someone do something about this
    I guess walgreens is getting my business, at least u can take it back if it doesn’t work

  13. Renate ( Schjerning ) Gardy says:

    Scam artist is right… Free they say and you only pay shipping and then they put a 134.33 charge on your credit card for the cream and then 123.87 for the ridiculous eye cream. I am disputing the charges . Beware customers these are all scam artists .

  14. Kim Hunt says:

    RevyveSkin company is a scam for sure. They told me the $1.95 that was supposed to be “trial” charge was actually expedited shipping. They charged my bank $172.90! I am in process of disputing them now and I WILL get my money back!!!!!

  15. Erin Alexander says:

    this product randomly showed up at my door. I did not order it, I have never even herd of it. i am 21 years old and definitely don’t need wrinkle cream…. still trying to figure out how they even got my address in the first place

  16. gfer1 says:

    It is a scam…ordered for my wife…did not see anything about this being a trial for 14-days, and a cancel was due or you would be charged the full amount. They give you 14-days from the order…it gets delivered in a week, giving little time. When we ordered we just ordered the skin cream yet, they sent the eye cream as well and we got hit with an $82.95 charge and an $89.25 charge. Called the company to complain, and the high pressure sales fought hard about not having to give a credit. She gave us an address and RMA number for a return, and when received would give a credit. The Post Office just returned the Certified Package, as undeliverable, company moves no forwarding address. This is a SCAM…do not order from this company.

    Maru
    I never thought this will
    Happen to me I don’t understand why they let company’s like these rob people and that Joanne Gaines associated herself with a cream
    Like these and Dragons Den believe and they don’t see what they are doing first time they took
    7.85 next was $135 and the last one $143 and when I found out with they were doing they only refund me $ 123 from
    My credit card I phone my credit card company and I got a new card waiting to get my refund and hoping that the cancelation
    E mail is true but now my credit card company will deal with them . I am so mad for being taking and the fact that after ten days I told them I wanted to send it back and they told me to keep it for free and keep
    On trying it
