Dermaluxe is a recently-released anti-aging skin cream that claims to use “snake venom peptide cream” to heal and repair your skin. Here’s our Dermaluxe review.
What is Dermaluxe?
Dermaluxe is an anti-aging skin cream that uses a unique “snake venom”-based formula to moisturize and heal the skin.
The product is available through a recently-released trial offer. That trial initially costs only $4.95 (although you’re eventually subscribed to a $100/month autoship program, which is hidden in the fine print of the ordering page).
Using the skin cream seems straightforward: the manufacturer claims you wash your face, apply the serum, and “enjoy”. One customer testimonial published on the official product’s website claims the cream “feels like a mini facelift”.
How Does Dermaluxe Work?
Dermaluxe claims to work using Biofil spheres that are made up of natural wheat protein. After this protein hits your skin, its tougher exterior allows for a more sustained release of nutrients. In the words of the manufacturer:
“…the wheat acts like a sponge that captures trans-epidermal water loss, resulting in wrinkle reduction.”
So where does snake venom come in? The active ingredient in the skin cream is a patented SYN-AKE formula. This formula purportedly “triggers fibroblasts” to produce collagen and restore important connective tissue.
Other key ingredients include coenzyme Q10, which supports DNA repair within the skin. The cream is also rich with antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and E.
Finally, there’s Ceramide-2, which is a ceramide-based cream that can boost the hydration of your skin. There’s also a formula called beta glucan.
The creator of Dermaluxe never explains the full list of ingredients included in Dermaluxe. Instead, the manufacturer simply lists several of the most important ingredients. The listed ingredients for Dermaluxe include:
— SYN-AKE formula
— Coenzyme Q10
— Vitamins A, C, and E
— Beta Glucan
We have no idea how much of any of these ingredients is included within Dermaluxe. In fact, the manufacturer appears to deliberately dodge questions about dosage. They say things like the following, for example:
“Ceramide-2 is included in sufficient quantities.”
“…found only in expensive creams”
We never find out what the most active or most common ingredient in Dermaluxe is. So although we know some of the ingredients in Dermaluxe Snake Venom Peptide Cream, we don’t know all of the ingredients.
How to Buy Dermaluxe
Dermaluxe has taken a similar approach to other skin care product manufacturers by offering an expensive autoship program masquerading as a free trial.
The free trial costs $4.95 for shipping and handling but requires you to input a valid credit card number. Once you submit your order, your shipment of Dermaluxe will arrive within about 5 days. Your credit card is also pre-charged about $100 to ensure you can handle the upcoming charge (although that charge won’t go through until 14 days later).
14 days after you first ordered Dermaluxe (it doesn’t matter when you actually received the product), your credit card will be charged $92.53 plus tax where applicable.
Then, every month thereafter, your credit card will be charged $92.53 once again, and you’ll receive another full-sized shipment of Dermaluxe on your doorstep.
This autoship program is problematic enough. But making matters worse is that all of this information is hidden in fine print at the bottom of the sales page.
If you wish to cancel your autoship subscription or return your unused trial product, then you’ll need to contact the creator of Dermaluxe by calling 1 (844) 410-7595. That customer service line is available Monday to Friday 8am to 12pm EST and Saturday to Sunday 9am to 6pm EST.
Who Makes Dermaluxe?
Dermaluxe is made by a company that simply calls itself “Dermaluxe” at the official product website.
That company also lists the following address:Dermaluxe
3231-C Business Mark Dr #207
Vista, CA 92081
You can contact the company by calling 1 (844)-410-7595.
Conclusion: Who Should Buy Dermaluxe?
Dermaluxe is a skin cream that provides little scientific evidence to back up its claims. It also vaguely mentions different ingredients – but fails to adequately mention how those ingredients work or what they do.
Dermaluxe is also relatively expensive compared to most other skin creams on the market, priced at around $100 per month. Many customers are also shocked to pay $5 for the “free” trial, only to realize weeks later that their credit card has been charged hundreds of dollars.
