Plexaderm Review

Consumers who have watched news reports about Plexaderm Rapid Wrinkle Remover may be very intrigued by this product. One of the strongest aspects of the company’s media strategy is to show how this specialty serum can reduce under eye bags through a live demonstration. During such appearances the Plexaderm representative will have a model who has highly visible under eye bags, they will then apply the serum to one of the eyes and the bag shrinks considerably, within just minutes of application.

However, though such live demonstrations can be very intriguing, they often don’t go into the details of how this serum works. This lack of information can make it very difficult for an individual to assess whether the Plexaderm wrinkle remover is right for them. After all, there are literally thousands of anti aging treatments on the market…so what makes Plexaderm different?

How Plexaderm Works
The manufacturer of Plexaderm isn’t very detailed in their explanation of how this anti aging serum works. Many cosmetics companies with new skin care products will go to great lengths to explain such aspects of their brand, and will often go into great detail and visualizations. However, the creator of Plexaderm focuses on a marketing strategy that is heavily rooted in before and after images, as well as live demonstrations on multiple TV shows.

Looking deeper at the potential mechanisms behind this product, we see that the way it works may have to do with silicates. This group of chemicals is derived from rocks and has been used in many industrial and skin care applications.

After Plexaderm is applied to the skin, the solution begins to dry, and the silicates form a thin film on the skin’s surface. This can create a tightening effect that helps sagging skin appear tighter, and may even provide support for under eye bags.

In this way, the mechanism behind Plexaderm is similar to that of pullulan; a water-soluble ingredient used to help breath strips hold their rectangular shape before use.

Where to Buy Plexaderm
The Plexaderm wrinkle remover is somewhat limited in terms of distribution channels. Currently, the product is mostly sold through the company’s website and isn’t really available through other channels. From time to time, this anti aging serum may also be found on Amazon and eBay, but it’s difficult to verify whether the sellers are authorized distributors.

Plexaderm is presently not available in stores. We also did not find the Plexaderm cream in Amazon.

Plexaderm Cost
The cost of Plexaderm can vary greatly, depending on any specials offered by the company. For example, the manufacturer lists the regular price as $133.17, while listing the product as being on sale for just $79.90, or 40% off. Though it sounds like a great deal, the consumer may notice that the regular price of the product is a strange amount, which may suggest that the “regular” price is more of a marketing strategy and that the product is typically priced lower than that. Therefore, the consumer may not need to rush and buy Plexaderm right away for fear of missing the “sale” price and can take the time to conduct their research and to speak to a dermatologist.

Additionally, the company offers a skin care duo kit, where the customer can add a hyaluronic acid serum to their purchase for just $20.07. This Plexaderm offer can be a good deal for individuals with a small skin care budget who have been thinking of trying a hyaluronic acid serum.

Plexaderm Ingredients

While the products sold by Plexaderm contain a wide array of ingredients, some of the ingredients tend to show up over and over in this line.

Sodium Silicate – This is the primary ingredient in the Plexaderm cream. It is an adhesive, film forming ingredient. When the skin dries, it pulls the skin. This causes a slight contraction. The results are very temporary.  

Cyclomethicone – A silicone used in perfumes, conditioners and skin care products. Gives products a silky texture.

Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone crosspolymer –  A commonly used silicone. Also used in hair conditioners. Makes the product feel nice. No long term benefits.

Avoid products with high amounts of fillers and temporary ingredients. They merely make products feel nice and silky.

Plexaderm Reviews

Does Plexaderm reviews work to temporarily smooth out wrinkles? To help answer this question, let’s look at the reviews. . The reviews for Plexaderm are somewhat mixed, which can be difficult to reconcile with the before and after pictures and videos provided by the company. On the one hand, such images are quite stunning, but the consumer reviews suggest potential issues with the cream effectiveness and the packaging.

For example, some Plexaderm reviews suggest that the cream can feel quite irritating on the skin and can create a sensation akin to burning and stinging. One of the reasons for this could be that silicate compounds are often alkaline in nature and can cause irritation.

Other Plexaderm reviews suggest that the packaging of this serum isn’t optimal. Currently, the serum is packaged into a dispenser that looks like a syringe. However, some reviewers suggested that the lever that pushes the serum out stops too early, making it impossible to get to the remnants of the serum (thus causing waste).

However, the biggest issue discussed in Plexaderm Rapid Wrinkle Remover reviews has to do with the film that is sometimes left on the skin. Of course, the goal of this product is indeed to create a film that holds the skin in place, but some consumers have complained that this film is too visible and appears white and ashy.

Further, some reviewers suggested that it’s difficult to put makeup on the skin after the film is in place. Such negative Plexaderm reviews are a good reminder to follow the company’s instructions about using only a small amount (just one drop) under each eye, to keep the film as least visible as possible.

    I have NOT used the product so this is not a review. However, I believe my background in the science of mineralogy may allow me to explain how the product “works.” From descriptions of a white film left on the skin and the product being derived from shale it appears that the product is a suspension of the mineral Bentonite. A thin film of this mineral will adhere to the skin and then shrink as it dries and thus will tighten the skin. The effect will be short-lived, perhaps a few hours, but will certainly disappear when the area is washed. Whether repeated application and “external tightening” of the skin has any long-term effect I do not know. Because Bentonite and similar clay minerals do adsorb water and oils they certainly will dry the skin, probably leaving it itchy and perhaps irritated. When working with similar clays geologists usually note drying of hands. Incidentally Bentonite is widely used in making the drilling mud used in drilling oil wells, water wells, etc. I hope this tidbit helps.

    I bought this plexiderm and used as directed several times. There was no change at all in the bags and it left a gritty residue on the face. For my money it’s a BUST. Would not recommend it.

  3. Joyce J Ruskuski

    I bought plexaderm and followed the directions and used several times. Saw no visible change in the bags under the eyes. For money money it does not work.

    I initially purchased one tube of Plexaderm. I was impressed with the results, so after the first few applications, I purchased 2 more tubes. After using this product for about 40 days total, it gave me a bad rash on my skin under both eyes. I applied just a touch, and it started to itch. I rinsed it off, and the skin my eyes stayed red for the entire day. Quite embarrassing. This happened a few times before I had to stop using it. I contacted Leigh Ann Goodrich with customer service, who stated that their policy was firm. No returns after 30 days, even if the product is unopened. Nice customer service, especially when you are selling a product that gives people rashes. I do not recommend this company. Use another !!!

    Honestly, I love this product! Maybe it doesn’t do all it appears to do in the commercial,.
    However, I really do notice a difference and love how it makes me look!
    Will continue to purchase.

  6. Brenda Martorell

    Scam, didn’t work for me!. This product does not work at all for undereye bags. All it does is leave a white film without reduction in eye bags. There is not a zero star so I have to give one!

  7. carol green

    Am sure Plexaderm does all it says it does; however, why pay that price for such a small tube when all you have to do is use PrepH!!! I came across this back in the late 70s and was interested in what it said about shrinking Hemhorroids. I figured if it could do that, it could shrink wrinkles. So, I went to the drugstore and picked up a tube….it worked like magic. I have told people over the years about this and when they did, reported back that it worked great. So, why spend all that money on Plexaderm when PrepH will do the same thing and perhaps much better!

    Don’t waste your money! As the viewer Stephanie states, once you put your make up on, it comes off! That is why they use
    some unshaven guy in the tv add with bags and not wrinkles to disappear. No mention about applying make up after the fact.
    It also does leave a white film under the eye if your not careful to keep rubbing it in. It states to use a damp cloth if white film appears. Well if thats the case, then you are wiping it off entirely. And the silly tube that looks like a syringe is a bad idea. first couple times I did a squirt onto my finger like it says to do, half of it ended up on the bathroom wall! Need to squirt it in the palm of your hand. I would not recommend this product and never buy it again. It’s a scam for someones pocket and that pocket is not mine.

    Did not realize the segment on GMA was a paid infomercial. Would never have ordered. Doesn’t do a thing. Feels “tight” as it dries and that is it. Waste of time and money. Don’t fall for this scam.

  10. Sue

    The first time I used this product, I did “feel” a tightening of the skin under my eyes but saw no visible results. After that, I don’t even notice a tight feeling. Have been using for two weeks and it is a total waste of time and money. Can’t believe GMA actually had this product on the show. I never order from infomercials but thought since a reputable TV show had it on, it might be worth while. Avoid this scam

  11. Trisch Brosig

    I bought and used this product for three months to date. I LOVE it ! It definitely works great for me. I apply it and wait for it to dry (3 min. or so) And when it’s dry, I apply my face powder over it to blend it in and I’m ready to go. It’s like an instant ego booster! It takes away my bags and dark circles perfectly. I will NEVER be without it. Am ordering more today. And when that’s gone in three mo. I will order more. Thank you for making an awesome product. My husband thanks you too !!!! 😉

      Any 4+ star comment on this RIPOFF product has manufacturer insider written all over it!!! I tried this product and though I did feel some tightening of the skin, it basically had no visible results. Only good thing is while posting my negative experience of this product, I read somebody’s advise on using Preparation-H and that actually worked!

  12. JohnD

    I haven’t used it, but I have tried to convince my wife that it is nonsense. Observe the changes in the lighting and angles of photography on the Plexaderm commercials, and it is clear that the viewer’s perception is manipulated using common techniques.

  13. Pam Harrison

    I find myself getting angry every time a PLEXADERM commercial airs. I consider their product so bad as to be a scam. Should be a law against this product and the ones that are making the bogus claims. Please save yourself the trouble and your money. DO NOT BUY. I wonder what they did with the male model to show the improvement with his under eye bags? Best guess is the light they projected on to his face. Arrgh…

  14. Patti

    When are women and men going to realize that there is no such thing as bags, wrinkles, etc. disappearing? There is however such a thing as taking good care of your health, eating correctly, exercising, doing some form of stress release, such as massage, water, AND taking care of your skin with honest skin care( one that actually helps with the functioning of your skin) and using sunscreen. I am a skincare specialist giving honest advice. Start taking care of your precious skin early on and if you missed that time, it doesn’t hurt to start! Good luck!

    The advertisements in the Kansas City area appear on television stations 4 and 5 during afternoon news casts. The marketing of this product is made to appear to be part of the newscasts. This is a marketing strategy of the manufacturer. The two women speak as if they are part of the newscast reviewing this product for listeners. This is totally false. These two channels have a habit of accepting advertising that appears to be part of the newscast when it is not. Effective marketing but extremely poor judgment on the television stations.

  16. Stephanie Mauter

    The reason a man is used in the advertisement for PLEXADERM is because most men do not use a foundation that immediately makes the puffiness return which is what happened to me. All they say is that anyone can use it, never mention that it will not work after a foundation is applied. Nothing but a scam!!

  17. Elaine Murray

    I used this product for 3 days……nothing happened. I’m like the previous reviewer. Save your money. I returned immediately.

  18. Barb

    Please don’t waste your money. This product does not work at all for undereye bags. All it does is leave a white film without reduction in eye bags.

  19. Barb

    I tried clicking 1 star, but 3 showed up. This product is a waste of money for under eye bags. It does NOT work except to leave a white film. The bags do NOT shrink at all. I’m very disappointed.

  20. Keisha Frazier

    Buyer beware! This product does not meet any of its claims. They promise you a 30-day guarantee but that 30 days starts from the day you order not the day you actually receive the product. I used this for 2.5 weeks and was completely unsatisfied. The skin tightening effect they speak of is literally just the product drying. Your under eye bags aren’t going anywhere. The applicator also stopped working on me. They told me to throw it away and use a new one. At almost $80 this is ridiculous. I would not recommend this product and their customer service is terrible. Save your frustration and your money.

  21. Dawn

    As was said above there are many products on the market…I have not tried this product – what I wanted to say – is this is just like using egg whites ( which could be the secret ingredient)..which does the same thing, tightens the skin…and also creates a film when it dries and gets flaky and you cannot put any makeup on…that is why these products will not work for women especially ones that wear makeup.
