Does Tag Away Really Work?


Does Tag Away work?If you’ve got skin tags you want to get rid of, you’ve probably stumbled upon Tag Away as a possible fix. You might have even seen it advertised on TV, which makes it one of the only remedies for skin tags that has a television promo. But can an essential oil like this really work on removing skin tags, even if it does take 3 to 8 weeks?

Overview
Skin tags are known to pop up just about anywhere on the body, and are benign and nothing to worry about. Because of this they can be left alone, but if they are in a place that is easily noticeable, you probably don’t want to keep them around. Some people say you can just “grip ‘em and rip ‘em” but this is not the preferred method of removal. If you go to the dermatologist they are probably going to burn them off, freeze them off, or cut them off. This is why rubbing an oil on them daily for a few weeks sounds like a better option.

The Claim
Tag Away says that it is all-natural and homeopathic, and that it won’t leave a scar behind. They say it’s painless, and doesn’t contain any chemicals. They claim it works on all types of skin, and your skin tag just dries up and falls off in time. They say the timeline for this is 3-8 weeks, and that they won’t grow back once they’re removed. They also say that the results are guaranteed, and that you can return it for a refund if you aren’t satisfied.

The Hype
Skin tags are a pretty common affliction, and many people are keen to get rid of theirs. Since going to the dermatologist for something as innocuous as a skin tag seems a little excessive, most people want an at-home remedy that they can use in the comfort and privacy of their home, that doesn’t produce a scar, doesn’t hurt, and doesn’t cost a small fortune. This seems to be hitting all of those targets and so it’s going to get a lot of interested parties inquiring about it.

The Cost
Tag Away is $30 delivered to your door and gets you two bottles of it. The thing about skin tags is that if you’ve got one, you’ve probably got another one, and they can keep popping up as you go through life. Keeping a supply of this on hand is a good way to vanquish them as they occur so you don’t have to bother with them again and again. When you compare this cost to getting them taken off by a doctor, it’s not very bad at all. A lot of health insurance policies won’t cover this, claiming that it’s just a cosmetic procedure.

The Commitment
Applying this daily for 3 to 8 weeks seems like a pretty long time for something as small as a skin tag. Since this is an outpatient procedure at your local dermatologist, you could have your skin tags removed in an hour or less. So you definitely have to commit to using this, and not missing any applications, following the included directions to the letter. The trade off is that you don’t have to go to the doctor and you don’t have to pay their prices for such a simple procedure.

Moles, Warts & Skin Tags Removal

Evaluation
We like that Tag Away is painless, and involves slowly removing it so it doesn’t leave a scar behind. It wouldn’t make much sense if you removed it only to have a scar left behind that is just as visible, or maybe even more noticeable. Since skin tags don’t usually grow back in the same place you can usually get this solved the first time and once and for all. There’s really no way to prevent yourself from getting new ones in other places, and if you’ve got one that means you’re prone to getting them. It’s good to have a system in place for new ones as they develop.

Final Tag Away Review

Tag Away is getting our Solid Try rating, because frankly there aren’t a lot of better alternatives out there that are doing as good of a job. If you’ve resolved yourself to taking care of this on your own you only have so many ways to go about it, and using an oil of this nature is a great option that should fit all of your criteria. Just be sure to use it long enough to get the desired results.

Our Recommendation
It’s not a bad price for something like this and it’s better to go with an established company that is offering a guarantee than a shady company that isn’t. There are a lot of different wart removal products and skin tag products out there, but they are offered by companies that you wouldn’t want to give your credit card info to.

UPDATE: While the effectiveness of Tag Away may be in question, Dermatend has been a proven, highly recommended skin tag remover for years.

What do you think? Does Tag Away work or not?

I actually like the fact that this takes up to 8 weeks to remove the skin tags. I don’t really want to use any chemical to remove them and I will not pay hundreds, if not thousands just to remove them at a hospital. I have few skin tags under the armpit and I desperately want them off and I’m willing to apply this for up to 8 weeks if it’s done with natural ingredients.

I think I may give this a try. Although, the “30 Day Money Back Guarantee” is kind of a crock since the 30 day period probably starts the day you order it, and then you have to use it for 3-8 weeks to even know if it works! If they are really confident that this product works, then they should at least offer a 60 day period! I’ve even seen a few commercials lately where the company offers a guarantee that includes refunding the shipping cost & even the cost of shipping it back! Now that’s a guarantee that shows they stand behind their product!!

BECAREFUL when ordering…they tag on a bunch of upgrades and if you are ordering on an ipad or iphone, its easy to click yes when you want no. There is no order confirmation page, so you are stuck as soon as you click yes. I did this by accident, and emailed them immediately. They responded 5 days later and said it was too late, they couldn’t cancel my order. I WILL exercise the 30 day money back guarantee and only be out $10 for p&h. But what a crock. The website is sketchy and so is the company.

I totally agree with Nicole, and thanks for your information, I am reading this after I ordered, and had the same experience. Luckily I caught it and “backed” out as you do not get a final review of your order to remove any unwanted charges, as you note.I have the product and will try it now.
Maybe with enough feedback they will fix this if they are a good company as this page states.

I put something like oragel on my skin tags to deaden the area then I use good toe nail clippers and remove them. YOU CAN CAN CAN prevent skin tags by eating less sugar. Sugar does cause skin tags. I thought my demotologist was crazy but she was right. ALSO if you get skin tags on your neck or if a woman under your breast. Putting baby powder or deodorant on those areas DAILY will prevent many of the tags. Less sugar and less friction = less or no skin tags. Putting deodorant on your neck daily will also GET RID of some smaller skin tags.

I wish I could leave a review that states rather or not the product works.
For that to happen … I would have to actually receive the order I placed WEEKS ago.
I have rec’d unsolicited phone calls in the middle of business meetings trying to sell me more/additional products – the funds have been deducted from my bank account – BUT I have yet to receive my order.
I emailed customer service twice. No reply.
Finally called today. Phone agent was polite – but would only say “it should ship soon”.
No idea if this product successfully removes skin tags…but the organization has successfully removed the funds from my acccount.

Hi Cindy,

They tried to “tag on” a bunch of stuff when I ordered it too. I am now up to 8 weeks and have been applying it as directed on 15 different skin tags that I have of varying sizes with no results. And yes, my dermatologist says they are all skin tags. I’m not too happy with it.

I have been using tag away for more than 2 months now. Not only did it NOT work, it made my skin tags swell up. I followed the instructions precisely. The results are terrible. I would like to return the product, but can find no way to do this. There are no return instructions on the invoice. It is impossible to get a live operator when I call the number. And the robot that answers the phone only wants to sell more product. There is no return option. And the robot knows my name, my address, and remembers my credit card number. Don’t buy this stuff.

Are u serious giving this snake oil a try? First Tag Away says it has a 30 day money back guarantee. But it takes 6 to 8 weeks to work? (not to mention 6 weeks to arrive in your mail box.) lol. That should be your first clue. The writer of this review says make sure it has a warranty…another cause to laugh. I would highly recommend doing some Google searches on this rip off before you buy. And if you do get sucked into buying it be prepared for a deluge off telemarketing calls and junk email. They sell your personal info.

Dermatend works GREAT. Removed 5 skin tags and they are completely gone. Very small marks where they were, but fading away. However, this method, no matter what they say is FAR FROM PAINLESS. Read the active ingredient and google its effects. It is basically an acid burning your skin. If you get it on any of the skin surrounding the tag, it burns like hell, and leaves a mark that looks like you burnt your skin somewhat severely. Luckily the mark faded. Overall very pleased with the results, just do a better job of putting it on than I did

mike bechman January 2, 2013 at 5:37 pm

Have been using tag-away for 2 months now and like so many others have not noticed one bit of improvement. Not a hint of any of the tags, small or large, fading away. Like so many others, my warning to anyone out there is not to order any products advertised on T.V. unless there is a guaranteed way of returning it if not satisfied. Perhaps it does work of some people but from what I’ve read most do not see any results.

I have seen this on TV, and I do have several skin tags. I have gotten rid of a few of them using other methods, but have been thinking about this. I figured that this was complete hokum but and still undecided. Simple question — does this stuff work, and is it more effective on certain parts of the body (some of mine are on the inner thigh for instance)? What else works, and any ideas?

Like many others, I’ve been using Tag Away for 4 weeks now and see NO indication that my skin tags are doing anything. I was skeptical from the beginning when I would apply the ointment under my arms and then immediately have to put a shirt on (except when going to bed). I felt like whatever I just rubbed on the skin tags was being removed by the cloth of my shirt. Additionally, in the morning, after putting on the ointment, I would spray my antiperspirant under my arms, which also made me feel that that defeated the purpose. I mean antiperspirant is made to eliminate moisture………….and moistening up the skin tags right before spraying on antiperspirant seemed to be very counterproductive. Oh well, will keep using Tag Away until it all gone and then?……………..probably schedule a doctor’s appointment to have them removed.

For those who want to return a product and have difficulty because of poor assistance from the seller, tell your credit card agent to put a hold on the payment to the seller…and explain that there was a 30 day guarantee on the product but you can’t return it because seller hasn’t provided a way to do it.

Reply

Jenn February 17, 2013 at 8:41 pm

You cannot put a hold on your credit card. The merchant has already been paid. You can start a dispute. You will want to tell them that the product did work as described(full details) and you want to return but cannot get a hold of merchant(give dates). They will be able to dispute the transaction and take the funds back from the merchant.

Then when I didn’t receive the product after 2 weeks and I called their #, I was told that they hadn’t processed my order yet and would I like them too?? Duh??? I received it and have been applying it for 2 weeks now and no change other than the stink. I will be calling my credit card to cancel payment on this scam.

Greg February 3, 2013 at 6:53 pm

These reviews are helpful and convinced me that traditional treatment was totally worth it. In the end, I paid $400 to have about a dozen skin tags removed in minutes at the doctor’s office. The fix is immediate and absolute – 100% guaranteed to work. Of course the treatment results in scabs that need daily ointment treatments to ensure there is no scarring. But compare that to applying an acid to your skin every day for 1 – 2 months, with only a partial chance of working, it’s a no brainer – go to the doctor to get your skin tags removed.

I paid 7 U.S. dollars for a bottle of Tea Tree Oil to remove my skin tags. I’ve only been using it for 1.5 weeks now, but it seems to be working. One of the larger tags dramatically dried-up and shrank in size, but hasn’t fallen away as of yet (any day now). The other tags seem not to be as responsive, which makes me wonder if the tag size has anything to do with the drying rate?

My only complaints, for lack of a better word, is that the tea tree oil smell is strong, and kinda vapory. Also, the tag itself, when it dries, turns white, so this is a little unsightly. But hey–7 bucks vs. a $200 doctor bill is worth it!

People should understand what “homeopathy” is before committing to a product claiming to remove a skin tag. Testimonials in itself is not evidence. Even by reviewing the very few comments made by actual users above it doesn’t sound that there is any usable evidence. Considering the amount of dilution that goes into a homeopathic product remember there is no active ingredient. Look at the ingredients carefully and do the research and I can assure you that this product is no more than water. Many “homeopathy” products make dubious claims but there has never been any evidence that any of them are effective. In fact a sleep aid that is sold at many stores is so diluted that you would have to consume over 7 swimming pools to achieve consumption of a single molecule of the active ingredient. The fine print says it’s caffeine and water with a bit of sugar, of course in fancy terms. Research well before you spend money on any product. There are many other effective ways to remove skin tags.

GastroM February 11, 2013 at 1:36 am

Another note, take a look at the National Drug Code website and look their NDC number 65121-623. This is a filing made to the FDA. The active ingredient of Thuja Occidentalis Bark. Under the strength number/unit it shows the dilution of 6 [hp_X]/6[hp_X]. This should be the answer to your questions. Please see homeopathy dilution method on Google and you will see that this product Tag Away is nothing more than just a simple liquid with absolutely NO active ingredient.

I do not know how you can give a recommendation if no one from your site tried it? I do not like a product that takes 8 weeks to perform. I have had large tags removed in a doctor’s office and I have a lot more small ones to remove. Doctors do not know why some individuals are more prone to get skin tags than others? They give you reasons for certain areas, but not everyone has more in the same areas. Skinhale offers quicker results seems a better product, but they are all so expensive. All products need better return policies to show honesty. Dermatend needs to state it cannot be placed on the skin since it does burn; lack of honest advertisement. Tagaway does not seem to be a worthwhile product, and there are more out there with different names with the same ingredients.

I had considered buying this stuff but was leery. Deadening the small ones and clipping them off with nail clippers is the best bet, and it doesn’t take 8 weeks. Ora-jel or tattoo jelly called Dr. Numb works great. I would use Dr. Numb for the bigger ones. It keeps the area numb for a while after you apply it. Happy clipping!

I had to get a new debit card to stop these guys from stealing from me! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. It also stinks so bad that you won’t EVER want to put it on for a long period of time. Do not buy.

Wasted my money as well! Don’t waste your money on this crap! Instructions are to ‘ apply 3 times daily’ which is , at most times, not convenient and the smell reminds me of Deer Urine , used to hunt bucks. I tried for 6 weeks, as recommended , and nothing happened. Please don’t waste your money on this worthless junk! Just another ‘snake oil’ salesman!

if it is just melaleuca-tea tree-oil, then just get a bottle of tea tree oil from your local food co-op or health food store, or any place that sells essential oils. It has mild anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. I used to use it for acne when I was younger. Works well. Haven’t tried it for skin tags, but maybe I will. Though my husband may ban me form the house on account of the smell- it is pretty overpowering.

Frank March 1, 2013 at 9:46 am

for a fast, easy, painless way to remove them my mother told me as a kid… tie a thin piece of thread around the base of the tag before bed… and by morning it will fall off… I have never had any grow back… 3 to 8 weeks is just silliness when it can be resolved over night…

Thank you all for your comments about Tag Away. I too was just about to order it but have definitely changed my mind. Imagine charging $10 for shipping two little bottles? Yes, obviously a scam and the fellow that mentioned it smelling like Deer pee was probably correct. Perhaps the seller(s) did indeed mix deer pee with some sort of lotion or whatever and bottled it. They must have had a big laugh knowing what the product was and raking in the money. “Let the buyer beware.”

TagAway claims to be homeopathic. From Wikipedia: “Scientific research has found homeopathic remedies ineffective and their postulated mechanisms of action implausible. The scientific community regards homeopathy as a sham; the American Medical Association considers homeopathy to be quackery, and homeopathic remedies have been criticized as unethical.”

It’s a scam. Avoid TagAway.

Michael March 10, 2013 at 8:46 pm

Just to let some of you know, tags are easy to remove and its relatively free. If you have sewing string all you do is “strangle” the base of the tag and cut off blood flow. Within 1-2 days it turns dark because the blood flow is restricted and by the 2nd-3rd days it either falls off or can be easy pulled off with no pain or blood. What you feel when you tie a sewing string around it and tighten it really tight, is like a pinching sensation but that goes away quickly. Over the years i have gained and lost weight many times and when i gain weight i always get these “tags”. My father who is a doctor actually showed me this method and ive done it literally like 25-30 times. When the tag falls off it will be red around the skin area but will go away within a day or 2. So if you want to save yourselves the money try it if not then good luck with this item. I saw the commercial for this stuff and had to see if someone was actually making money by selling this stuff. Eventually i found this site and the comments about it.

You don’t need to order it online. I found it at Walmart. I’ve used it for two weeks now and have not noticed any change so far. It does tell you to use it 3 times a day, which is almost impossible. The smell from the product is pretty horrendous, but if it gets rid of them, so be it. It it works I will write back…

I bought my bottle at Target for $15.00 and have been using it for 3 weeks, with no apparent change at all. Considering the awful odor of this oil, and after reading the reported failures of other commenters, I think I will stop using it and move on to the dermatologist! If it sounds too good to be true…

I bought this at WalMart, in their As Seen on TV section. Only paid $15 for it like that, and glad I did it that way, instead of the $30 online, cause its a waste of money. I’ve been using it as directed for 2 months now, on skin tags of all sizes, and not even the tiniest ones have disappeared yet, let alone the larger ones. They haven’t even shrank. Its a joke, and does not work. Not on real people anyways. Which is sad, I really wanted mine gone. The ones on my neck are painful when hair gets wrapped around it, and the one under my bra strap on my shoulder gets rubbed wrong all the time. But its not doing anything, and its been 8 weeks. I still have over half the bottle left, so I am going to keep trying. I paid for it, might as well use it, but nothing so far. And the smell is horrendous. Its got a definate chemicle smell to it.

Leila March 24, 2013 at 4:19 pm

I use thread to tie a knot around the skin tag and after 5 to 7 days (depending on the size) it falls off. It is worth a try for anyone who has them. After they fall off, make sure you rub some witch hazel on it.

Hi Everyone

They tried to “tag on” a bunch of stuff when I ordered it too. I am now up to 8 weeks and have been applying it as directed on 15 different skin tags that I have of varying sizes with no results. And yes, my dermatologist says they are all skin tags. I’m not too happy with it.. I have about another week left of this product and if I don’t see any results by then I, just going to go back to my dermatologist. Also, if it doesn’t work I plan to lodge a complaint with the better business bureau.

Hello ,

I have been using tag away since October 2012. I have tags on my neck and tag away does work. One skin tag it took about 3 months to come off, but it did work. You have to stay on top of putting the tag away on every day. Clean the surface, dry it, then apply tag away with q-tip. Rub tag away right on the tag and also at the base of the tag connected to the skin. I removed about 5 tags so far. I use it about 5 times a day, it smells, but you will get used to it.

Keep using it and do not give up, it takes time, but it works.
Good Luck! I advise to upgrade your order to the bigger bottles so you have more.

I’m on my 16th day and my daughter says she can def see a difference. Mine are all under my pits (have been so embarrassed for the past 15 years after giving birth). So, common sense told me to not use deodorant as often as possible; so, I’m sure that is why I’m seeing some progress. But, to that end, I’m a stay-at-home mom so I don’t hav 2 worry about offending any1! As a nurse by trade, my best opinion is to keep the area(s) u r using the product on clean and dry and do not cover or let anything rub on the area until product is completely dry_again, just my opinion! I hope this works for us all because these things, while benign, r just plain old UGLY! As I rely a great deal on reviews, I will give this the full 8 wks, then repost. Good luck and God bless!

Hey guys
I got Tag Away around a week ago, I’ve been using it 3 or more times a day since then, and when I apply it, I apply it 2 times each time I do it. But as of couple days now I got frustrated and decided it didn’t work except only make the tag bigger, so I decides to cut. Broke a blade from a shark shaver and tried to cut it. Because the tag is in a VERY sensitive area of my body, I couldn’t cut it away. Even though it was somewhat cut from the bottom of the tag, I kept applying the Tag Away. Still kept trying to cut it away. After a day I applied the Tag Away in the aftermath of cutting it, i noticed it turn a little black. Now, its totally black. And i read a post from somewhere else that a person put a bandage of the tag after applying it, their tag got darker and darker, and eventually falling off. So basically it started working after i cut it a little bit and putting band-aid on it. Probably something to due with moisture like someone said from these posts.

So, PUT BAND-AID on the tag after you apply the TagAway.
WAIT, be patient. And hope.

If hopelesss, cut the very bottom of the tag, not all the way if undesired, THEN apply TagAway, and the put BAND-AID on it.
just wanted to share info. Remember, even blocks on the road can be for the best.

I bought it yesterday at Walgreen’s 14.99. Applied it 8 – 10 times. Today it is turning a little darker on the end. I hope this stuff works. It sucks getting ripped off. I noticed, that Tag Away has a 30 day money back guarantee. But, I am sure you have to jump through some hoops to get a portion of your money back after mailing and fees. An article in Wikipedia states that the advertised ingredient:

“in the 19th century, Thuja was in common use as an externally applied tincture or ointment for the treatment of warts, ringworm and thrush.[8] “An injection of the tincture into venereal warts is said to cause them to disappear.”[9]”

I bought Tag Away 2 days ago. I started using it and decided to research online to see what kind of results other people were having. After reading all of the bad reviews, I Googled “how to safely remove tags at home.” After reading the different ways to safely remove tags, I got some ice, scissors and peroxide and have just now removed over 20 tags from my neck and chest! I sterilized the nail scissors in peroxide, numbed the tag with the ice and snipped them right off! Little to NO pain!!! I should’ve gone this years ago! Now those hideous tags are gone and I’m off to bed and a VERY happy camper!!! No Tag Away for me! Besides, the smell is awful!

Beware of all ” As Seen On TV”!!!! This is my plan….. I will apply this tag away potion into a waterproof bandage(Nexcare).The kind that is a surrounded seal. I will put it on and leave it on til bandage comes off. then I will repeat 2 more times. This way. It’s covered. Bandage will have plenty lotion on it to work its magic. Plus you will not have to live smelling this horrible odor all day and night long for months! Can u imagine going out on a date with this stuff? Or better yet, put it on when there are certain people that bug you! Garenteed they will stop! Or did someone set you up to meet a person you wish not to be with? Wear this potion!!!!
