Plexaderm Review: All-In-One Solution for Wrinkles and Under Eye Bags?

Written By : David J. Grossklaus   ✓ Fact Checked

Plexaderm features silicates and hyaluronic acid to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, decrease puffiness, and say goodbye to bags. Does it really work? Read our review!

Whether it’s because we’ve had a late night or a sign of age, we all get dark circles or bags1 beneath our eyes at some point.

Along with age also come the crows feet from years of facial expressions and the loss of elasticity in our skin.

Whilst there is no miracle cure, Plexaderm promises to eliminate under eye bags and wrinkles from view in just 10 minutes!

Ever the sceptic when I hear promises of this nature I decided to look into it further.

What Is Plexaderm?

plexaderm wrinkle treatment

Plexaderm is a small range four of cosmetic products, marketed under that name, by True Earth Health Products.

The CEO is one Jonathan Greenhut, who is also CEO of Nutricap Labs and Health Solutions Marketing. Apart from over 16 years experience in the Nutraceuticals and Cosmetics Industry, there is little to be found about his credentials.

A search on the Better Business Bureau reveals that they registered with them on 13th April 2017, and have had two registered complaints. Both have been resolved.

The main product in the Plexaderm range is their Rapid Reduction Cream Plus, which markets as being able to smooth fine lines and firm skin, redefine facial contours, improve skin density, refine skin texture and minimize visible pore size.

Plexaderm do market this as a temporary solution for under eye bags and wrinkles.

What Products Do The Company Offer?

The company offers 4 products:

  • Rapid Reduction Cream Plus
  • 100% Hyaluronic Moisturiser
  • Plexaderm Collagen Peptide Firming Serum
  • Plexaderm HA Antioxidant Moisturizer

Plexaderm Ingredients

Intrigued by the claims of this miracle cream, I looked at what it actually contains. Let’s take a look at some of these ingredients and what they do.

  • Magnesium Aluminium Silicate is refined from purified clay and is the main component of talc. It is used in cosmetics as a thickening or opacity agent. It has been tested and shown to be only a mild irritant.
  • Sodium Silicate is used in cosmetics to control the PH of the product. It is an alkaline and can cause irritation or burning. It is also used in adhesive products2 .
  • Cellulose Gum is used as a thickening agent in food
  • Acetyl Hexapeptide – 8 is used as a muscle relaxer in cosmetics to reduce the appearance of wrinkles3 .
  • Yellow % and Red 40 are both coloring agents.
  • Phenoxyethanol is used as a preservative in cosmetics. And can cause allergies.
  • Ethylhexylglycerin is a deodorising agent and may cause irritation4 .

The Rapid Reduction Cream Plus is the only one that is available to order online at their website. If you want any prices or to place an order for any of the other items you need to call their sales team.

How Does Plexaderm Work?

how it works

The company claims that it uses silicate minerals from shale clay to form a temporary tightening layer on your skin. This invisible layer works to visibly tighten and lift crow’s feet and wrinkles surrounding your eyes in minutes.

It further claims that it smooths skin surrounding under-eye bags making them shrink from view, again, in minutes. This is a premium product like the Instantly Ageless cream.

They do not claim this to be a permanent fix, and openly admit that it is temporary.

As we get older we produce less collagen and elastin, these are the building blocks of our skin. This can be exacerbated by overexposure to sun, smoking and other lifestyle choices. Loss of structure causes the skin to form wrinkles and, on some people, bags under the eyes.

In general, hyaluronic acid is one of the main ingredients in skincare products. It has been shown to help with wrinkles as it helps our skin retain moisture. This is noticeably absent in the Rapid Reduction Cream.

So how does this cream actually work? Let’s think David Copperfield and illusions! By temporarily filling your wrinkles, and putting a sheen on your skin that bounces light off, it the illusion is created. Filled wrinkles and tighter skin!

It appears that the sodium silicate, when it dries, has the effect of “lifting” the skin and providing a smoother surface. This may be further enhanced by the magnesium aluminium silicate, which is essentially a plumping and filling agent. These also appear to have the effect of putting a sheen on the area where the product is applied.

Whilst the company carried out what it refers to as a “clinical study”, there is no evidence of any scientific studies or clinical trials to backup the claims this company makes.

Plexaderm Side Effects

Other than mild irritation reported by some people, there don’t seem to be any side effects to using this product.

How Long Does Effects of Plexaderm Last?

Plexaderm results can last up to 8 hours after first taking. You can just wash your face if you want to remove the Plexaderm.

Plexaderm Reviews & Complaints

As this product is only sold through True Earth Health Products it is difficult to find any independent reviews.

The marketing relies highly on before and after pictures, showing apparently remarkable results.

This is via their website and a range of TV ads. In fact, at the time of writing this, their ads have aired 1261 times in the last 30 days. I think that’s a pretty full on marketing push.

Their customers claim dramatic results.

Susan S writes:

When I use plexaderm, it truly makes me look years younger. Plexaderm is part of my daily face and makeup routine, I love it!! Thank you plexaderm!!

When I started digging deeper the cracks begin to appear. There are numerous issues around how the product is dispensed. It comes in a syringe style container. Some people have found that this clogs.

Janet writes:

It doesn’t work! Plus bad syringe constantly clogging, drying up and mine stopped dispensing all within a month. Yet when I finally got a hold of them which was a few days past 30 return period (I bought in Dec, 2017 and they’re the only company I know who doesn’t even offer extended holiday return, that should tell you something) they refused to let me return for a refund.

I’d never buy another thing from this company. They won’t stand behind their product even if it stops working so you’re stuck with a syringe that won’t dispense.

Also people have found with this method of dispensation you cannot use all the cream, and therefore describe it as wasteful.

Then come the reviews from people that posted around the issues of using type of moisturizer or make up with this product. It appears that the product works by drying on clean skin, add makeup or moisturizer into the mix and it does not work.

Paula Van Der Zwaan reports:

Plexaderm does not work for women who use day creams and makeup! You need to apply this on a clean and dry skin (no creams), and after applying, you can’t put anything on your face as that takes the effect away. This is great for men who don’t use any day creams.

It doesn’t feel good when it’s on your skin, and you feel it pulling your skin, but a white residue stays on your skin. Don’t waste your money on this!

The issue raised by Paula of a white film being left on the skin has also been brought up by other people, and apparently it looks even worse in photographs. So no selfies if you are using this!

Then come the customer comments that the product does not work, or if it does then, as stated by the company, the results are temporary.

Joshua Winiarz writes:

It works when it’s applied as on TV, and as time is counting down. But as soon as you rinse the stuff off after it has dried and has done its thing, the bags and the wrinkles come back.

There were earlier issues raised around automatic payments being taken via their preferred customer scheme, and also only refunding unopened items.

The company seem to have addressed these issues and now only offer a “one time purchase” and accept returns of opened items within 30 days of receipt.

      1. They are putting it on wrong please use fan or dryer to let it settle. I use it everyday and it last until I wash it off.so where these negatives are coming from I don’t no.remember it’s a temporary fix that works.a lot cheaper then surgery.

  1. I see plexaderm on TV every day on many different programs.
    I been trying to use it, but not working, see no difference, still very puffy under eyes. Leaves skin chakey. Stop advertising it.

    1. Amen. Had the same awful results. I just sent it back. I would have better results with egg whites. Kills me all the awful products out today but hey we are making them millionaires buying into this anti-aging thing.

      1. Agree. I don’t pay attention to commercials. I remember Lifestyle Lift and other scams shoved down our throats.

  2. I like the product, but when I apply concealer & have to tap the under eye the puffiness is back. I wish it could come in color so you would not have to touch again. If I don’t put concealer on, I look Chinese with the tightness. Keep working on ways to better the product, I feel it works. I’m excited to receive my new bottle, looks like you changed the bottle. I feel like I loose using the tube. I purchased 3 bottles & they all clogged. I could see there was still cream in bottle, but it would not come out. I tried running hot water did not work. I feel you owe me a free bottle for the unused left from bottles. I will try to stick with y’all.

  3. Product does not work at all. Do NOT waste your money. I had high hopes but wrinkles did not go away whatsoever, not even a little bit or for a little while.

  4. The plexiderm syringe is easy to use and the product goes on easily. But when it dries, it looks and feels very dry on my skin. When I touch it, it feels like it’s cracking. I only use a little on my finger. What can I do to avoid this dry feeling? I really want to use Plexiderm but don’t like this dryness.
    Thanks
    Sherri Herman

  5. I think it works exactly like it’s supposed to. It just doesn’t last very long. You can’t use liquid foundation or concealer over it but you can use mineral foundation. It’s not for everyone…but for those who have had success with it, I would guess it works pretty well. The more I use it, the more I like it..I think 🙂

  6. Just got my Plexaderm today in the mail and i was excited to use it.
    Result: It worked very well…..

    May not work for some but for me IMMEDIATELY !!

    Thanks Plexaderm

    Looking Good for a 51 year old….

  7. Follow the instructions and it works great but do not smile as soon as you do it starts cracking and looks like you’ve put egg whites on your face

  8. I bought a bottle of plexaderm and it plugged up within one week. I sent it back and they replaced it and the second bottle of plugged up too. Newer bottles now. Thet knocked off $20 for the third bottle. I will see how long this one lasts.

  9. Wow false advertising! First of all in the commercial the before pictures everyone is smiling or purposely squinting to show lines and wrinkles, then after applying the cream in the after pictures no one is smiling and like magic the wrinkles and lines disappear. Can any one else not see this deception? Wake up people!

  10. I bought 2 bottles from Qvc i really wanted to have something that. Would work no matter how little i useof this it turns the bags under my eyes black is that because I’m African American? I’m not dark skin i make sure my face is clean i don’t know what to do i hate to go out any where. Because i feel i look so bad with the bags could my skin be too sentive for this product? I only have 10 more days to get a refund i guess I’ll have to see about plastic surgery it will cost more but i can’t keep hiding in the house thank u

  11. When they show this on tv it doesn’t say. Check with your doctor before using it to see if the ingredients is going to be bad for your skin maybe u should start doing that so people won’t be throwing their money away

  12. What’s the point of this product, even if it did work, which it doesen’t.
    You can’t wear makeup, which is the other half to enhance the appearance of your skin.
    You can’t eat, because god forbid you get some food around your mouth, the results, which in my case lasted less than an hour.
    And you can’t sweat.
    Too much pressure!

  13. Plexaderm does as it claims . What it doesn’t tell you , is that if you live in a high humidity area , it fails almost immediately . You cannot use a moisture based makeup over it , it will cause Plexaderm to fail. I really liked the quick way it eliminated the bags , did not like the sudden release as I went about my day . Within a few hours , the effect was gone .

  14. Thank you for saving me time, energy, aggravation, and money. I’m so tired of all these scams. Guess if PLEXADERM was as effective as advertised, if would be featured in one of the beauty/cosmetic chains. Thanks again.

  15. The people advertising this stuff, need to be arrested for false advertising.
    This product is so far away from the truth. How can they sat there, on TV, straightfaced, with such sincerity, and just lie to the public.
    (The answer is simple….MONEY)

    1. I’m 47 and have been using it for a few weeks now. It does work! I use it under my eyes for puffiness. You have to read directions and yes you can’t use liquid makeup with it. I use powder makeup & it works great. You have to be very delicate around it when putting your makeup on, but if you wait about 20 minutes before putting on your makeup you will find it works really well. Sometimes I will have to add a little more if I didn’t apply enough the first time and if you get too close to your eye, wet a Q-tip and take off the area that’s too much. You will learn how to work with it. I was skeptical to try it because of bad reviews, like most of these on here, but if your curious on how it will work for you, just try it, it is money back gaurantee. I love the product and it lasts all day until I wash my face.

  16. I absolutely love it and got 2 friends using it too. Ok, so it’s a little delicate and I haven’t had success with applying make up over the top (it pulls the product off and so the bags under my eyes return ) plus if you apply too much you’ll get a white residue when that happened I had to wash it off and start again. BUT I have pretty much nailed the application and a little bit goes a long way. AFTER applying all my face creams and my foundation if I apply a thin layer under my eye it works perfectly & my bags disappear. As long as I don’t wash my face or rub my eyes I get a good 5 hours or so out of it.
    Sounds like it sucks for some but works for me.

  17. Thanks for your time for feed back. A similar product was advertised a few years ago and I tried it. Followed directions and it had the same effect as egg whites. It came in bottle form. They seem to have made some changes as putting it syringe style and re marketing a money grabber based on paid false testimonials. Individuals are paid for t.v. appearance. I was told, if it looks too good to be true, then it’s not! Save ur $!

  18. I order two bottles and was so excited to try it, SAVE YOUR MONEY IT DOES NOT WORK. THE MINUTE YOU PUT IT ON YOUR FACE YOU GET A TIGHT UNCOMFORTABLE FEELING YOU CANT EVEN SMILE ITS HORRIBLE. IT IS NOT WHAT THEY REPRESENT at all. If you order it good luck. And if people keep buying they’re going to keep pushing this product, why not they’re making money.

    1. Also open the bottle – the amount they sell you is supposed to be 5ml but it’s really only .17ml in a secret cap holder.

      Brake open your bottle, you will see!
      It’s crazy.

  19. I received two bottles of the Plexaderm Rapid reduction Cream Plus from my former employees as a gift to use for my undereye bags for my wedding day pics too on 10/26/19. Six weeks before my wedding day I attempted to use the product & discovered both bottle pumps did not work & I guess the bottles were empty. I mailed both bottles to the returns department on 9/23/19 with a very nice letter explaining my situation & simply asked for two new bottles be mailed to me for use on my wedding day 10/26/19. No reply or products were mailed to me so I called plexaderm customer care on 10/25/19 to be told that a manager would call within two days. Sadly disappointed I was not able to use the product for my wedding pics too and NO manager ever called as promised. I called again today to the Plexaderm customer care department and spoke to a manager named Gordon who rudely told me that he was not able to help me with my gift situation and send me just two full working pump bottles because I did not have an order number or know the person in my former workplace who ordered the product. Now I am a former manager at Macy’s and know for a fact that you should always satisfy the customer and manager always have that power. Therefore. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT BECAUSE THE BOTTLES MAY COME EMPTY AND DEFECTIVE AND IF IT’S A GIFT PLEXADERM’S CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPARTMENT WIll NOT COMPLY WITH YOUR SATISFACTION TO KEEP A POSSIBLE FUTURE CUSTOMER AND SIMPLY REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE BOTTLES. WORD OF MOUTH IS THE BEST ADVERTISING AND I INTEND TO SPREAD THE WORD AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE REGARDING MY HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE WITH PLEXADERM.

  20. It’s really a false advertising. I have the same bad experience as to the clogged bottle. Also, I followed the instruction very closely, I tried it for few days, I still have eye bags and more dark spots under my eyes. It’s a horrible experience. Don’t waste your money, this produce won’t work. Its only a scam. I think the picture shows after the used of the plexaderm rapid reduction serum is a make over picture.
    It’s a phony picture the whole deal is a scam. After using your money paying for the high different TV commercial, as long as the commercials keep doesn’t stop, they ll keep on catching believers. Don’t be a fool. After returned the products for 3 months I m still awaiting for the refund.

  21. Plexaderm is a skincare serum that will purportedly reduce your undereye bags and wrinkles after just 10 minutes of use. The results are temporary, but the product promises to give you a more youthful appearance that lasts until you wash it off.

  22. I have read most reviews by customers.Its all bad and negative.Then why advertise so much on tv.

  23. The advertisement of a product will always paint a positive picture which is virtually always misleading, which is why examining as many reviews as possible from real users (not the ones posted first because they’re most times the “planted” positive reviews) is a great help in determining whether or not to try a product. I always read the negative reviews to look for a common thread of complaint. Those are the honest reviews and if I find that there’s a consensual complaint , I decide not to waste my money. I chose not to waste time or money trying Plexaderm. One reason is that I’m a woman of color and this product “flakes” under the eyes. Not a good look. Another reason is that applying makeup eliminates its effectiveness which is DUMB. I’d like to be able to look good in my makeup. After all, makeup is designed to enhance one’s appearance. If Plexaderm doesn’t work under makeup, what the use? This product is useless for those of us that don’t have a “naturally even” complexion. That being said, I’d rather explore natural products that although they may take longer to work, with patience and persistence being the key, at least the results are more permanent.
