Does Lifecell skin cream really work?If you’ve got wrinkles, you’re not alone, and LifeCell Skin Cream wants to help. There are so many products to choose from in this category, and each one promises basically the same thing: less fine lines and wrinkles, a virtual turning back of the clock.

Overview
The baby boomers are all getting older now, and therefore there are a lot of companies out there trying to capitalize on the anti-aging craze going on. It’s only going to get bigger over the next decade and beyond so expect to see more and more options emerge on the market.

The Claim
They say this is the last skin care system you will ever need. But they are not the only ones that claim this. The number of claims made is really too big to list here, but they say that it can double as an alternative to Botox, that you’ll see results in 17 seconds, that leading dermatologists recommend it, that it works because of antioxidants, that the media has said stuff about it, and that they uncover incredible breakthroughs.

They use the old “one-page” pitch to try and throw as much at you as they can to get you to sign up for the trial. This is used by many companies when they want you to either buy their product or leave their site. They got no time for tire kickers.

The Hype
The hype comes from the list of celebrity endorsements they have, with people holding up their product in pictures including Paula Abdul (she’ll endorse just about anything), AnnaLynne McCord, Joey Fatone, Chazz Palminteri, Paris Hilton and Jennifer Taylor. It’s not clear how much they were paid to make a statement on LifeCell Skin Cream, or have their picture taken with the product, but these are definitely not freely given testimonials.

The Cost
This product is set up on one of those mock trials. This means that they don’t say the word free anywhere, but the idea is that you’re getting a free trial of the product, but just paying shipping. If you don’t cancel before the 30 days is up your card is charged a stunning $189.00 and 30 days later it will be charged $149.00.

Is LifeCell Skin Cream a Scam?
This sort of system must make companies money, because so many of them do it. We don’t quite understand what the point of this set up is. For example, if your product is as good as you say it is, why not let people initiate the order after they try it out, rather than automatically charging them if they take no action? It can’t be considered a scam just because people forget about what they ordered a month ago and are upset that they got charged. It’s expressly shown in the terms and conditions what the trial entails.

However, we can say that this sort of sales tactic just doesn’t make any sense if you’re a company that is in it for long term profits. All it ends up doing is creating a large base of miffed consumers that are ready to tell everyone and their brother that your business is a scam.

The Commitment
Like with any skin care regimen, you have to be diligent. This is doubly true with anti-wrinkle treatments. The wrinkles didn’t get there overnight so it can take many months to start to see visible results. However, with LifeCell Skin Cream you just have to get through the first month, and they’re saying that you should see enough of a difference to keep yourself motivated and to buy a full supply and continue on with the program.

Evaluation
The general consensus is that this product is a waste of time, and potentially money. There is very little reason to suspect that it is a miracle cream of any sort, and it is something that you can avoid altogether. Sometimes you get what you pay for, but in this instance we have to say that you don’t.

Dramatic Girl

Now that's a bit dramatic, wouldn't you say?

Here is the full list of what they say it improves, from their main website:

  • Dramatically improves appearance of photo-damaged skin
  • Protects skin from future signs of aging
  • Revitalizing your skin
  • Eliminating appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Improving skin’s firmness and elasticity
  • Removes the appearance of unsightly “crow’s feet”
  • Dramatically makes your lips look plumped up and provocatively pouty
  • Diminishes and bleaches the appearance of age-spots

They don’t go into great detail about how or why their product actually does this.

Final LifeCell Skin Cream Review

For the price they charge LifeCell should be able to turn the clock all the way back. There’s just not enough evidence provided to get us to believe that their product does anything more spectacular than readily available anti-wrinkle creams you can get at the supermarket for a fraction of the cost. Reviews have been mixed, most of them stuffed with shill reviews, when for this price point they should be off the charts, with few naysayers.

Our Recommendation
We’re going to recommend against getting LifeCell Skin Cream. We’ve seen dozens of websites that are cookie-cutter like this, and are geared at getting your credit card information. The general thought is if you start the trial, you’ll forget to cancel and they’ll get you for at one, maybe two payments before you turn it off. Most likely the product does something, but enough to justify the monthly cost, we don’t think so.

What do you think? Does LifeCell Skin Cream work or not?

I has to stop using life cell because they started shipping me products every 2 weeks and before i even was done using my first order. they charged my credit card. the product dried out my skin and i was on the hunt for a long time after to find a good product that had matrixyl and peptides and hyaluronic acid. i just wanted something simple that did not have ANY TYPE OF auto ship program. I am on social security and dont have that kind of money. I do budget every month to take care of myself and wanted to spend about $45 dollars on a good cream that still gives the benefits. instead of searching in google best serum or anti wrinkle serum i started to google ingredients I wanted. much like life cell most all the sites have ingredients. i found the best info just by searching ingredients. I found the triple serum de luxe on google and i researched the site. i thought it was kind of wierd i could check out through paypal. i started using the product and in about 2 weeks of using day and night i started to notice my wrinkles around my eyes and lips (smoker) start to get less pronounced. then i waited. i waited 2 weeks.. 3 weeks.. 4 weeks.. 5 weeks. and no charge to my paypal. FABULOUS. I used my product for 6 weeks and felt like i had a transformation. Radiantly Ageless Triple Serum De Luxe and the Peptide Fusion Collagen Booster have become my best products. I am NOT in autoship, and they are safe. I love the results, i love the way my skin feels so good and i believe in my heart that this product should cost so much more. I just thought I would share because life cell is a rip off and yes I did file a rip off report. if you are looking for something with excellent and good results then try Radiantly Ageless. The results are amazing, and dont let life cell trick you.

This just another company to word their sales pitch to get more and more money and force people to part with hard-earned cash…if not a scam THEN WHAT IS IT??? What does honesty mean these days???

Meredith Feby November 19, 2016 at 4:38 pm

Ok so Im gonna be completely honest. I am one of those fools who bought the product and I was going to send it back because it didnt work. But they only give you 30 days to do so I beleive and the ad claims it starts working AT or slightly after 30 days…. so, I gave it a shot. Out of nowhere one day I was taking a”selfie” (yes at 45 yrs old) and I noticed that my skin really did appear alot more “youthful”. My skin was firmer, my wrinkles less defined… and the only product I had been using faithfully was this one!! I was happy and disappointed.. ( I cant afford $187 cream every couple months!!) well here comes the downside… HUGE downside and Im curious if anyone else has had this problem… so in the meantime I started getting subscription beauty products… 3or 4 different cheaper ones… and I have received some quite well known products so I have been using them and stopped using the Lifecell. It has been almost 2 months that I stopped and this is my issue… My skin is actually WORSE. Like my skin seems like it lost ALOT elasticity, I have ALOT more fine lines…. so my question is… is there something in this product that your skin could be “addicted” to? In other words, done on purpose so that when you see the horror of what happens when you stop using it, you immediately need to buy more to reverse the damage that appears? It just seems odd that Im using high end beauty products 2x daily but after stopping Lifecell my skin seems to be getting worse quickly… Its kind of scary. Could any of these ingredients do that?

Yes that’s what happened to me.
I start using LIFE CELL on the 30 day trail basis , I cancelled my credit card so they don’t charge me the $189.00
Too costly.
Then I finished my other creams.
I left the life cell tube on the shelf for 3 months.
Then I ran out of creams and might as well finish it off .
I used Lifecell alone without other creams and it worked after 6 weeks of constant use my face was clear ,bright, any smoth.
My skin got addicted to it.
I went on the LIFECELL website to reorder.
But it didn’t accept my order.
I guess I know why.
Its costly.
Yes it’s a skin addiction.
My face is still OK after a week not using LIFE CELL but I doubt it will stay that way.

I think it’s worth pointing out that your review of this product does not contain any actual testing of results. It is an evaluation of their marketing information, their sales method and contains no actual results to compare against any other wrinkle-reduction cream.

Needless to say, if you are going to title your review “Does X really work?”, then you need to include evidence to support your conclusion.

The product may or may not do what it claims to do, but neither does your review. #FAIL

The ingredient list on this product is actually impressive (and no colouring or fragrance added) but the price is ludicrous. Paula’s Choice offers a wide range of products and not only lists the ingredients but also cites the studies/medical literature in which they were proven to be effective. The prices are moderate (more expensive than drugstore brands but far less than department store brands and MUCH less than this product. I’ve been using her products for over 15 years, I am 52 and everyone who has guessed my age has guessed it as under (okay, one person said a MAXIMUM of) 40.

I ordered only 1 sachet and they charge it on my credit card but after 60 days again I found 189 US dollars charged to my credit card whom I surprised I did not order it anew because it has no effect on me I reported it to pissed consumer so the company of lifecell skin offered me to refund half of what they charged on my credit card for 94.50 dollars but when I check my credit card statement of account instead of debiting and refunding to me THEY AGAIN CHARGE THAT AMOUNT WHICH IS SO FRAUDULENT SO ALL IN ALL THEY TOTALLY CHARGED ME OF 283.5 dollars in just 2 sachet.

It’s a scam. They intentionally mislead people into thinking they get to try this for a month if they just pay shipping… then BAM! $189.00 and next thing you know another $149.00. I’m getting my money back but it’s a pain in the ass to even deal with it. Seriously, they’d be better off just being straight with people.

It does say when you ordering that you will be charged $189 if you keep it after 30 days and also Auto shipment for $149. That’s why I did not order

Reply

Jan Lipsey March 17, 2019 at 8:00 pm

It seems that they are charging the $189 as they said they would, and then possibly the $149, two weeks later, is for the next auto shipment that is scheduled for you after the trial time is up. A lot of these places do that, promise the $4.95 charge for trying it for 30-60 days, and then they end up charging you for the product you used during the trial period PLUS the original shipping costs to send it. Then that next payment within two weeks of the one you just got socked with, is the recuring monthly charges to stay on that products auto shipment. It’s a rip off. I don’t remember the name of the one I tried, it started with the letter “R” and I was charged the $4.95 for shipping per the 30 day trial period. Well three days before the end of the month of the trial period, I was charged $185. I called the customer service as I still hadn’t even received the order for the trial period I was charged the $4.95 for. So I told her to just refund ALL of it! She asked if I still wanted to stay on the auto shipment plan for the following month, and all I could do was take a deep breath and explain, without trying to rip her head off, WHY would I want to stay with a Company’s product that I’ve yet to even of gotten to try?! I did receive my refund the following day, and two days later I received the”trial” offer (full size) products and a letter stating how sorry they were for the mix up! I learned my lesson and will NOT ever order like that again!! And I notified my Bank to decline ANY future or past charges from them should they try again.
It turns out half of those products are mainly a watered down moisturizer!

Instead I get trial products that range from face products (masks, creams, revitalizing eye strums, etc) to make up, colognes and even nail products from IPSY every month for $10. I do a profile that I can change as often as I’d like to, to preferences of product types and makers (ALL top people) that I can try. I even get makeup brushes, hair products and there is always a guide on how to use them and ideas that are on my account online, and in my IPSY Bag every month! It even comes with a new and different makeup bag every month. I have my products separated into different bags I didn’t even have to pay for! And I have a lot of products, even tho they range from full size to trial sizes, that I’m still using! I get 5 products and the bag each month for $5 and I can cancel at any time if I want to, without a hassle or extra charges! And I don’t pay shipping charges either. If there is a problem with a product missing or damaged, they fix it for free, no questions asked. If you’re interested, email me or direct message me!

LifeCellSkin has the worst reputation: Google it! its a total scam…
Even after returning the trial product and calling the rep several times I was threatened that my account would be charged for a product I have returned. The employees are so brainwashed that they can’t even realize how awful they react to people simply trying to disassociate from their product.
Stay away from this product. Think: pretty much anything promoted by Doctor Oz is most likely over-promised and scientifically insane claims.
LifeCell will deny even a UPS receipt I have proofing I have returned the product.
Yes, there is a strong placebo affect when schmearing anything onto your face and wanting to believe this actually works. That in itself is okay to promote a product… but the interaction of this company with the worst reputation in the internet is truly astonishing. Be WARNED, you will come across reps that are trained to bullying you to an extend that is actually illegal. Document all interactions and make sure you block your bank account from their access…!

Be very careful when you order. They keep charging and charging every 60 days, and nobody helps. i’ve asked them to stop sending me the cream and stop charging and they keep sending it and charging for it without my authorization, be very careful, read the small letters, they trick you and charge a lot of money every two months

Check your state laws, you can also file complaints with the BBB and your states Attorney General’s Office.

These products are a rip off, and you shouldn’t have to pay something that’s almost or very near the same price as a car payment ever month!
A lot of the Hollywood stars they show supporting their products are not even aware that they are being used to endorse them. Even the stars get photo shopped into pictures without permission.

I’ll never trust using a product or system like this again!

This company total scam artists . They bait and hook with their $5 shioookg trial offer as they withdraw the $5 then 10 min later attempted to charge $189?? Now a month later trying to withdraw another $189 ?? May I add the product does not work . Very disappointed 😡 when you reach out to explain customer service tries to gaslight you into believing you agree to pay all this for one tube ! I feel a large lawsuit coming their way if they don’t fix it ! I see I’m not alone

It really worked for me LIFE CELL but it’s too costly Anderby I don’t like to be auto charged.
I cancelled my credit card I used to order lifecell so they don’t auto charge me .
I’m 70 years old and it works well on mature olive skin, Mediterranean skin.
My skin is addicted to it.
But I won’t be hooked like so many other women.
They cannot use my credit card anymore it’s cancelled, no funds to cover whatever they automatically send me.
IF they reduse the cost to app.80.00
I might buy it again and again.
