My Derma Progenix Review (2021) – Does It Work?

It’s time to review Derma Progenix – which looks like a suspicious product (in my view).

So is it really worth your money?:

  • little to no info about the producer
  • no customer reviews
  • expensive for its value

Are there any chances that it’s another type of scam?

If you want to know the truth, find out all the answers in my review.

Note: This review is based on my opinion + research on Derma Progenix.

Review Summary

Full Name: Derma Progenix by AVO

Product Type: Anti-Aging Serum

Best Actual Prize: Around $40

Cheapest Place To Buy: Amazon

Designed For: Tightening the skin– it claims to:

  • reduce wrinkles
  • smooth skin
  • give youthful glow

My Rating: 2 out of 10

Recommended?: Definitely not – there are lots of things that made me question it:

  • looks like a re-branded product
  • contains some weak form of ingredients
  • has many biased 3rd party reviews

I suggest you better go for the best anti-aging cream from the market, that is definitely worth your money.

 

What I Liked About It

  • Contains some essential skin care components

 

What I Didn’t Like About It

  • Has the same patterns as other scam-like/rip-off products
  • Expensive for its value (and credibility)
  • Pretty unprofessional website
  • Lacks solid info about the producer
  • Weak ingredients
  • Biased opinions from 3rd party websites
  • Very few authentic customer reviews

 

 


Derma Progenix In A Nutshell


Derma Progenix looks quite familiar in terms of pricing, packaging and the way it is presented.

That’s because it has the same patterns as some products I reviewed in the past (like Kremotex and Derma RPX):

  • biased reviews from 3rd party websites
  • absence of authentic reviews
  • identical product containers
  • only one ingredient in the focus
  • same price range
  • no solid background about the producer

These things can be a sign of a questionable product.

If you allow me to ask you, are you sure you want to buy a suspicious product?

I also want to point out that this serum doesn’t have any authentic customer reviews.

Do you really want to use a product like this on your skin?

It can be dangerous and I don’t think it’s worth the risk and the money overall.

 


#1 – Claims & Producer


Unlike any typical skin care product, this cream doesn’t have that much info about it.

But still, I will try to give you what I gathered so far:

  • who’s the producer behind
  • what skin issues it helps
  • how it works
1. Claims

The claim of this product is that it has “an advanced combination of skin moisturizing agents and vitamins”:

  • pulls skin tighter and smooths 
  • gives a youthful appearance and a radiant skin
  • eliminates dark circles and stress effect
  • reduces wrinkles
  • enhances hydration

It also claims to keep your skin smooth and flexible, which means it won’t break or flake.

To be honest, these are quite a lot of promises – considering the fact that it doesn’t give away too info.

So in my view, these claims are only on paper – in order to attract buyers.

I pretty much doubt their authenticity.

2. Company Behind

This serum comes from the brand AVO, which I might have mentioned before.

Just like I said, here’s I found out about this company:

  • no official website for the brand itself
  • unsearchable business registration number
  • just a product-only website

Basically – these facts come as a red flag for me.

That’s because a legit company gives out all the info you need to know about it.

And that’s not the case of AVO, for sure.

However, on the serum’s website, there is some contact info.

You can also leave your message if you have any concerns, but I can’t tell if you actually get an answer.

That’s why I suggest you to buy a product from a trusted company with a good reputation overall.

 


#2 – Formula (3 out of 10)


Since this serum doesn’t have a solid background, I doubt its composition can be trusted.

Now, I looked into its ingredient list provided by its own website:

Once again, I cannot tell if the product actually contains these substances.

But even if it does – its formula lacks a lot of important info.

Still, let’s see what are its most important compounds.

1. Seaweed Extract

This ingredient contains several substances and minerals.

I personally have not seen it in too many anti-aging products – however, it has several benefits:

  • reduces skin sensitivity
  • provides antioxidants [1]
  • softens skin

Another benefit is giving your skin an extra protection from different environmental damages.

2. Peptides

Most of the ingredients from this product’s list are belong to this group.

They are different versions of peptides, but they have similar benefits:

  • boost collagen production
  • increase skin hydration
  • promote elastin supply [2]

Adding peptides to a skin care product can improve the overall the effect.

However – I’m not sure if the peptides present in this formula will give those results.

They aren’t very strong or potent and most don’t have clinical evidence behind.

3. Hyaluronic Acid

This compound is also listed as part of this serum’s formula.

In general, Hyaluronic Acid is an excellent compound to retain skin hydration and prevents dullness. [3]

However, considering the product’s background, it may be only on paper.

So I suggest that you don’t expect too much on this part.


Conclusion

I personally don’t trust this product’s composition.

It does contain peptides, Seaweed extract and Hyaluronic Acid.

But again, I cannot guarantee if it actually has these ingredients inside (given its questionable features).

That’s why I don’t really find this serum worth buying.

 


#3 – Consistency & Dosage (2 out of 10)


As I have mentioned, this product lacks authentic customer reviews.

This means that I had no way to find out about its physical characteristics.

The only thing I could find out are the directions on how to use it:

  1. Dispense 2-3 pumps of product on your fingers.
  2. Apply it on the face, neck and upper chest area.
  3. Use it twice a day (morning and evening).

There’s nothing special about the directed way of application.

Also, 2-3 pumps of the product twice a day will surely require a high quantity.

But again – I don’t trust this product and I advise you to buy a better alternative. 

 


#4 – Results (2 out of 10)


I looked for reviews of Derma Progenix to see how it works, but there isn’t any authentic opinion.

So it’s very hard to judge it fairly and I don’t want to rely solely on 3rd party websites.

Note: I only consider authentic reviews, not promotional/fake ones.

1. What People Say

Now – if you checked this product on Amazon, you saw that it has an overall rating of 4.5/5 stars.

However, it only has one written review (which looks very biased and generic).

Other than that, Derma Progenix has a lot of positive opinions from 3rd party websites.

But here are the things I noticed about them:

  • none of them came from real customers
  • all follow the same pattern or format
  • they all have almost the same wordings used
  • they look like promotional ads
  • no one really tried the product

Again, I avoid reviews from 3rd party websites because I don’t find them authentic.

And that really seems to be the case here.


Conclusion

Due to the fact that it lacks real feedback from real customers, I don’t trust this cream.

There is a small chance that it might work, that’s true.

But I don’t think that a product of this type is reliable, that’s all.

It’s up to you if you want to take the risk or not.

But in my own opinion, this cream is surely a product I wouldn’t recommend.

 

 


#5 – Side Effects (5 out of 10)


Since it has no real opinions, this cream obviously doesn’t have any complaints about side effects.

Now, A product with no actual reviews from previous users can only mean 2 things:

  • it’s either too harsh for the skin
  • or it had no potent anti-aging effect

The results of these uncertainties can be any of the following:

  • severe allergic reactions
  • skin irritations
  • pimples and breakouts
  • headache due to fragrance
  • no effects at all

Experiencing side effects is not new and there’s really no product made for all skin types.

But for this serum, you need to be extra careful since there are a lot of things that can’t be trusted about it.

To avoid the hassle, always check the product’s credibility before buying it.

 


#6 – Price (2 out of 10)


Considering the value and quality of Derma Progenix, I really consider it very expensive.

And obviously, it’s not a good deal at all.

1. The Exact Price

You can purchase this serum from its official website and from Amazon.

Since it’s sold in several packages on its website, let’s take a look at the overall deals:

  1. One pack costs $69.00
  2. 3 packs cost $177 ($59 each)
  3. 6 packs costs $294 ($49 each)

As you can notice, the larger quantity you buy, the higher your discount is going to be.

While on Amazon, it is only sold per piece (which costs $39.99 each).

A bottle of this serum contains 60 ml (2 fl. oz.) as the overall quantity.

But to be honest, the price and the amount are not worth every penny.

2. Competitors’ Price

I only want to compare this cream with my #1 recommended anti-aging product.

I am talking about Kollagen Intensiv:

  1. Kollagen Intensiv’s formula is by far one of the best.
  2. Its ingredients are trusted to be effective and safe.
  3. Derma Progenix has a basic formula (on paper).
  4. But the lack of customer reviews can’t prove its effect.
  5. Kollagen Intensiv costs $60 normally but you can get it for only $36.
  6. A jar of Kollagen Intensiv can last even 6 weeks, in my case.
  7. Meanwhile, Derma Progenix costs around $40.
  8. But a bottle is only 60 ml (2.0 fl.) and based on its directions, it won’t last long.

Comparing these two, it’s obvious that Kollagen Intensiv is the better choice.

It comes from a trusted brand, it has some really safe ingredients and it’s worth the investment.


Conclusion

To make it short, Derma Progenix is not worth the money (in my view).

There are several factors that make it suspicious and its fees are one of them.

Usually, products of this type have multiple hidden fees that can mess with your card.

This pattern is pretty common and you need to stay away from this.

So overall –  I strongly suggest that you save your time and money on a legitimate brand.

 

 


#7 – Final Conclusions


Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on this serum.

1. Weak Formula

There’s a full list of ingredients behind this serum.

However – due to the lack of customer reviews, it can result in the following:

  • weak forms of compounds
  • not effective formula
  • too strong for the skin
  • can cause severe side reactions

Regardless if it’s effective or not, you can’t fully trust this serum since it seems like no one really tried it.

2. Suspicious Product

To know if a product is legit, it should have at least the following requirements:

  • comes from a trusted brand
  • has authentic customer reviews
  • shows transparency in transactions
  • complete product info

But in this case, this product lacks almost all of these (even though they are the bare minimum requirements).

So if you ask me, these patterns can result in unfortunate outcomes.

3. Overpriced

Lastly, given its credibility and trustworthiness, I consider this product expensive.

I don’t think I can shell out $40 for a serum that doesn’t have a solid background reputation.

This can also result in unknown charges and suspicious bank transactions.

Do you think you can trust a product like this?

Because in my view, there are far better alternatives that will keep you safe from these things.

 


My Verdict – Worth It Or Not?


Short answer: Definitely not worth it.

If you want to know why I came up with this verdict, I have many reasons actually:

  1. Weak formula
  2. Questionable ingredients
  3. Absence of real customer reviews
  4. Biased 3rd party websites
  5. Unproven claims
  6. Expensive for its credibility and quantity

These issues made me not consider buying this product and invest in a better one.

What do I recommend instead? An excellent cream called Kollagen Intensiv:

  • potent ingredients backed-up with clinical studies
  • effective formula that can fight the signs of aging
  • comes from a trusted and real brand
  • recommended by specialists
  • price is really correct
  • quantity will last at least a month

Compared to Derma Progenix, Kollagen Intensiv is far better and worth it.

So it’s clearly a much better product for your wrinkles and fine lines.
