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 was a doubting Thomas about this product. Yes it took some trial and error of how to make this product work. My success was that you have a fresh washed, then pat dry face and then if you have dark spots just dab makeup on those spots, ( use one lighter shade than you usually do like if you use ivory beige use just ivory ) then lie down, yes lie down, apply the plexaderm starting under your eyes and then also for your wrinkles and all area down to chin. after 5 minutes apply powder make up only with the soft brush and you will be absolutely amazed. My husband could not believe it. Is it temporary? of course but boy to get through the day is amazing!!!

  2. Alice

    This product works great for me. I only tried it because my cousin and friend raved about it. I use a small amount and the bags under my eyes disappear in minutes. I use makeup over the product ( I didn’t know not to until reading the reviews) and it is great. The result lasts for me all day and night, i even worked out with it on and it was fine. I am perplexed by the negative reviews. My only complaint is it looked flaky by the end of the night, but I prefer this to puffiness.
    For those using moisturizer, do you use it before or after the product? I didn’t use any moisturizer, only creamy concealer over the product. Maybe moisturizer will help?

  3. Not a Plexaderm Employee

    I can’t understand how there are so many bad reviews……say like 4 different reviewers to begin their comments (who most likely work for the company). Try and mix up the wordage kids. Makes it look less obvious. As far as the product, if you can’t tell how this is obviously a scam then you deserve to waste your money. This infomercial-like “miracle” beauty product is no different than like over a 100 others before it for decades. You’ll get the same results as the rest of them…disappointing.

  4. Shirley

    I tried this morning after my shower and I was disappointed, it is not as good as Sudden Change Under eye firming Serum that I have been using . The cost of of Sudden Change Serum is only $8I will not .95 and can be purchased online at Walmart. Com , You can pickup in store and get free shipping ‘

  5. Pixelpaster

    “Silicates from shale-rock.” Shale-rock… lol! Do you have granite-rock countertops? This stuff is just sodium silicate sold at thousands of times its normal retail price. (It’s what is in those “don’t eat me” packets shipped in retail packaging to absorb moisture.) Potters use sodium silicate in various ceramic processes. When you get sodium silicate on your skin and let it dry there, it feels tight and hard until it gets washed off. Amazon sells sodium silicate syrup for 13 bucks a pint, which is still twice as much as you’d pay at a ceramics supplier. SCAM!

  6. Terry

    I am a 65 year old man with somewhat deep wrinkles around and under my eyes. I also have bags under both eyes. Noticeable but not extremely bad. Anyway, my sister-in law gave me a tube of plexaderm and I love it. It works on both the bags and wrinkles. I realize it’s only a temporary fix but it sure works well on me. I would recommend.

  7. Susan T

    Peter Thomas Roth makes a product that makes wrinkles temporarily disappear. You CAN apply make up over it, mix it with your make up or primer ( thats what I do) if you use too much, it will leave a white film, but i just moisten my finger tips or a qtip and gently remove it. It does not effect the product. A little pricey, but great product. Egg whites? I think that would leave a clear looking, tape like skin. ? Nasal spray dabbed on bags works for some too. It reduces swelling, so maybe…. I have not tried that, but have a friend that swears by it. Prep. H didnt really work for me, but I have not tried that in a long time…since I discovered the Peter Thomas Roth stuff.

  8. RICK

    Can’t understand why people are so easily scammed. This company makes their $$ on marketing this product 100’s of times a day. The ingredients are nothing more or better than you can find in a product that is 1/5 the cost. It’s a boiler room operation, making millions of $$ on ignorant customers. Any commercial that advertises “I used this product on my father” or “it’s all the rage on social media” is just scamming everyone out their. I suspect in a year or two, the Attorney General’s from several states will catch up with them and then they will pay a $2M fine and walk away with $200M.
    There are no proven ingredients in their product and it’s all in the marketing – BUYER BEWARE.
    Just another clever TV SCAM.

  9. Richard

    We called to get more information and was surprised to get a complete boiler room. They were selling Plexiderm and 3 day yoga DVD’s and loudly talking over each other. Strange! We asked several questions that we knew the answers to and they flat out lied. From all of the reviews and our research, this is a minimally effective product with more issues than positive effects. They draw you in with promises of the “fountain of youth” but it is really a scam where they get people to sign up for re-occurring monthly payments and make it difficult to return. I have seen these scams before and if they were a legitimate product they would be marketed in brick and mortar stores, Amazon or Costco. When a product really works, people buy it consistently regardless of cost. If you have to do a contract for a product, buyer beware!

  10. Linda

    I’m amazed at how many negative reviews there are. Although this product isn’t perfect, it works very well if you learn how to use it and don’t follow the video verbatim. Frankly, it’s a lousy video. I use Plexaderm very sparingly and wish I could put “very” in bold. In fact, one syringe, my first, lasted me nearly two months. Too much product will look pink, feel dry and cakey, not smooth out the area, and just simply look strange. I have a fair complexion and do not use make-up under my eyes. These may be factors contributing to my success as well. I first apply my eye cream and give it time to absorb before applying the Plexaderm. I don’t rub it in like they show in the video. The skin under your eyes is thin and fragile so rubbing will stretch your skin and make things worse. Pat any products you use lightly and quickly into place. I give the Plexaderm time to dry (just a few minutes) before I do anything else to my face. The result is remarkable and worth the time to get it right. It lasts all day – from 5 am to 10 pm – and I am very expressive. I hope this helps.

  11. Sandy

    I guess like any product, some people will be happy and some will not. I have done a lot of reviews over the years, mostly on Amazon, and I would never mislead anyone. Plexiderm works for me….I even took before and after photos for friends to see so they wouldn’t think I was teasing them.

    However, after saying that, it is NOT a perfect product by any means. Yes, it can leave a bit of a white film after a little while. I try to use less of the product if that happens….You don’t need a lot. I brush my face powder lightly over it if I am really annoyed by it. But I wear glasses, so I rarely bother. I tried it on wrinkles and, unless you have no plans to use your face muscles, don’t bother. Oh, sure…it will take away the wrinkles but if you crack a smile, you crack the product, which not only brings back the wrinkles but white lines where the product settles. I purchased Plexiderm strictly for the under eye bags and I am satisfied. I only use it occasionally when I want to look my best and don’t expect the effects to last forever. I have had no issues with allergies, which I am pleased about. Your mileage may vary, as they say.

  12. Loree Mizzi

    I received my pleasure two days ago. I was pleased when I first tried it but I did not like the burning that came with it. I also noticed that the area around the eye that it is put on gets very dark. I used it again today, 3rd time, and the red irritation I have really hurts! I’m not sure if it’s an allergic reaction. I won’t be using it again until I see my dermatologist. The burning and severe irritation just isn’t worth it. I’ll stick with concealer and eye cream.

  13. Laura

    I would give this product a 1-star. The product is a light, almost pinkish shade which happens to match my skin tone pretty well. However, there were numerous problems. First, while it does tighten the skin temporarily, at least in my case, the end result was minimal. Especially because one can’t put make up (foundation) on the area of the product (make up alone tends to cause less noticeable wrinkles-so no net change for me). The problems with the product were 1) after 3 days of daily use, it started to cause me to itch. 2) trying to put foundation around the area of the plexiderm product was difficult and if the two overlapped, it caused an unsightly film. 3) The product didn’t last even a full day, maybe a few hours. 4) The product doesn’t work at all for wrinkles around the mouth (frown lines) – it seems to only work for very fine wrinkles in areas of little muscle action like the eyes (as long as one remains expressionless). 5) The rubber stopper isn’t air tight so every time one opens the syringe to use again, the top part of the product is all dried out and unusable and has to be wasted. 6) the syringe is hard to manipulate without accidently wasting some product which now is all over my bathroom mirror.

  14. Sherry

    I received the product and the cream would not dispense out of the syringe. I worked at it for 45 mins. It appeared that no one punctured a whole in the tip of the plastic tube it comes out of. I had unlocked it and reset it. Nothing. I had to get a nail and hammer it in there to get open so something would come out of it. They are sending me another one but I have to wait 7 to 10 more days for it. But then I tried it. I was shocked at first because it seemed to work great but you have to be very careful when applying it because you can wind up with areas still poofing out and those beside it not. It takes an artist. It dries fast. My biggest disappointment however, is after you wash it off, your wrinkles look 90% worse than they did before you used it. I do not know what causes that and can only hope it is not permanent. I guess you better be ready to use it every single day. I’m scared to continue using it now. I seem to have worse wrinkles where I applied than I had when I put my first application on!

  15. Kelly

    I am surprised to see so many negative reviews. This product works great. It also lifts eyes if you put it above eyebrows. It gets rid of sagging jowls and tightens laugh lines. I looked at least 10-15 years younger after applying it. My only negative comment is that the applicator could be made better. Other than that it is worth every penny.

  16. Brent

    Shale Rock is used to make cement, It contains natural gas. Have you heard of Fracking that caused Earth Quakes where Earth Quacks don’t happen It also contains oil that is made into gasoline. And you women want to put this toxic stuff on your face. Go to google and look up the shale pits in Canada and what it has done to the land there same goes to the Dakotas, All this from Shale. Id think twice about using this on my kids face let alone my face.Id rather have a few wrinkles…

  17. Anne

    Not sure why there are so many bad reviews?
    I have a under eye bag problem and not a wrinkle problem. Like small water filled under eye bags. This stuff works so fast, the first time I used it, it was surprising how fast it started working. That being said, spread it on quickly all at once because for me it works so fast, areas that don’t get covered don’t get effected. (Kind of left a weird puffy, not puffy look).

    CONS- The reason why I’m on this site right now is because although I love what the product does,,,,it leaves my under eyes looking dry and make up over that makes it look even worse. I was here looking for a solution. They offer a hydralonic acid type lotion, but I don’t want or need to use that under my eyes.

    If there was a solution to covering the dryness without diminishing the effectiveness of the product I would give plexaderm 100 stars.

    Lastly, I have dark circles, it does not work for the dark circles at all. (Hence applying concealer that makes it look slightly crusty) so my choice are water bags or slight crustiness under eye.?

    Fingers crossed for a solution!

  18. Amy Spencer

    Do not trust this company. I tried to order it online using my Paypal. The form kept saying “missing fields” so after 3 tries, I gave up. I never completed the order. Then a couple hours later, I get an email saying my order was confirmed. I called Paypal, and the sneaky company had not only completed my order BUT also made it a monthly recurring payment. Needless to say, I filed a dispute with PayPal.

  19. Scott

    This works great!…These liars probably were too cheap to order it so they bashed it. These broke losers are hoping the price drops if they keep saying it doesn’t work.
    Stay single and keep looking close at those dark wrinkly bags in your mirror, while I get all the hotties.

  20. LaDonna

    I tried Plexaderm! Within seconds I experienced burning where the product was applied! It tightens your eyes alright, so tight that when you make certain facial expressions you look like basset hound dog! SCAM!!

  21. Brenda

    Plexiderm is horrible. When it dries it does tighten the skin BUT if you run your fingers over the skin where it’s applied, it feels like alligator hide, or sandpaper texture. You CAN NOT apply makeup after applying it. Your foundation will remove it. Raw egg whites will accomplish the same result. DO NOT BUY. Waste of money and they make you pay for return shipping. They don’t include a return shipping label. RIP OFF.

  22. Ken

    I don’t know how there can be so many negative comments. This product is very effective and it not only got rid of my bags but also some deep lines in my cheek. Maybe they don’t know how to apply it.

  23. Sandy

    I just want to thank people for taking the time to warn others. You’ve all saved me some money and trouble. And hey, I EARNED these wrinkles! May we all age gratefully.

  24. Dan

    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.

  25. Joyce J Ruskuski

    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.

    • Dee Blackwell

      I agree with you, Joyce. These products would be great if it actually worked as advertised. It may minimize the bags, but no way does it NOT leave an ashy residue under the eyes were product was placed. They NEVER address that. If my bags are that bad, I would have the fat under my eyes removed by surgery. Dark circles, an easy fix with make up. Yes…it is a waste of money.

  26. 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.

  27. Cornelius Gallagher

    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 !!!

  28. suew

    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.

  29. 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!

  30. 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!

  31. Jennifer

    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.

  32. Sue

    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.

  33. 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

  34. 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 !!!! 😉

    • Ralph S

      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!

  35. 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.

  36. 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…

  37. 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!

    • Dan J

      “Skin care specialist?” In other words: NOT a doctor. I happen to be a doctor, as are the reviewer on this site. The facts are we have treatments that can help improve the appearance of bags and wrinkles, and they can vary from creams to surgery. And technology is being developed every day, so when you use absolutes like “no such thing,” that’s a bit irresponsible. I don’t disagree with maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but let’s not pretend that genetics isn’t a huge component, and there ARE things that can help. And no, Honest Skin Care isn’t the only answer, or even the best answer. Leave the science to the scientists.

  38. kirk b.

    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.

  39. 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!!

  40. Elaine Murray

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

  41. 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.

  42. 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.

  43. 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.

  44. 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.
