I decided to write a review about Regenere after an upset customer emailed me, and the story is all too familiar.
She was charged $84.95 after 12 days (what I consider a “short-term free trial”) for what she thought was a free trial of Regenere and could not find a phone number to call them to dispute the charges. Unfortunately I get emails every day just like this from people looking for help.
So let’s take a closer look at Regenere Facelift Complex to see what their product promises, and if they have the clinical trials to back up the ingredients, something that’s very important when shopping for a wrinkle cream or other anti-aging product.
We will also talk about Regenere’s billing arrangement to determine whether this is yet another free trial wrinkle cream scam or a legit wrinkle cream that will actually make a difference in your skin.
Regenere promises “advanced wrinkle reduction for dramatic clinically proven results.” It also promises the following benefits without expensive surgery:
- “Deminishes wrinkles” (yes that’s a typo, more on that later)
- Dramatic skin repair
- Smoothens skin
- Counters the aging effect of stress
- Look up to 10 years younger
- Make wrinkles disappear
- Amazing new Hollywood secret
- Better than botox
- In a recent study of their skin care “incregients” (another of many typos) found in their advanced formula, after 8 weeks there was an 84% decrease of fine lines, 95% increase of collagen production, and 73% decrease of dark circles.
At this point in my research of Regenere, there are already a few glaring red flags that there’s something fishy about their website and their claims. For me they are easy to spot, but for the average consumer, they are often overlooked.
Red Flag #1: Are there really clinical trials?
Usually a reputable anti-aging treatment or cream sales page will talk about their clinical trials when it comes to their ingredients. They are proud of the fact that they use quality ingredients that have been clinically proven to bring results, and they back up those claims with links to the actual clinical trials.
For Example, take a look at Kollagen Intensiv’s sales page. This is one of my top recommended creams, so it’s a good example.
You’ll need to scroll about 2/3 down the page to the part where it says “Clinically Proven” and scroll down a little further to where it says:
“In a clinical study, volunteers who applied SYN®-COLL twice daily for 84 days reported a 354% improvement* in the overall appearance of their wrinkles (when compared to the placebo)…”
Now, if you click on the link that’s highlighted, it takes you to a pdf document of the ACTUAL clinical trial’s research on that specific ingredient. These are the types of facts you need to look for when shopping.
Throughout Regenere’s page, it references their “clinically proven results” but there is absolutely nothing to back it up, no links, and no ingredients listed.
They also state their ingredients are not revealed so as to “thwart” a replication. Really? I don’t know about you, but I won’t buy a cream that doesn’t list its ingredients.
There are countless grammatical errors on the sales page, and this is usually a sign that the cream does not originate from the U.S. If you’ve read my Investigative Report on wrinkle cream scams, this can be a problem.
Now I’m not just being persnickety about an honest grammar mistake. I investigate these wrinkle cream scams daily, and it’s a theme that’s common with many of them. Why should you be concerned?
Many of these creams originate from South American countries so there is no recourse (no extradition policy) for an American consumer to get their money back if they’re not happy, and a lot of times they will list bad or non existent phone numbers.
And guess what? Once the public catches on that this is a short-term wrinkle cream scam, they usually change the product’s name, the packaging, and start a whole new campaign.
Red Flag #3: What are the hidden terms & conditions?
There is not a free trial on the planet that does not charge you the full price of the product once the trial period is up, and Regenere is one of them. This is why I don’t like short-term free trial products. There’s not enough time to receive the product and try it long enough to decide if you like it.
You need to look at the terms and conditions to see what’s really up with the free trial, and here’s how I do it. I put a fake name, address, phone number and email address on the first sales page, so that it takes me to the billing page, and here is where you will find the terms and conditions. At this point you’re not required to enter your credit card number.
Most of the time it’s really hard to find the terms and conditions and you have to scroll down the page to look for the tiny, microscopic link. When I did this on the Regenere page, it did the old “bait and switch” and took me to a completely different cream’s purchasing page, which is another red flag.
I thought I was signing up for Regenere, but when I looked closely it changed to “Dermajuve” in the fine print. What a tangled web of deceit! All these scams work the same though.
On the 14th day, you will be billed the full purchase price of $84.95 and they will automatically send you new product every 30 days and charge you that same amount.
The problem is, most people have NO IDEA they are actually signing up for an auto-ship, auto-billing arrangement, and they find themselves stuck in a position where it’s hard to cancel, and impossible to get their money back.
Red Flag #4: What else did I find worrisome?
A couple of things jumped out at me as I was reading their terms and conditions that I felt were noteworthy, and a bit strange and unsettling:
- Avoid if you have allergies
- Use as recommended by your Doctor to avoid mishappenings
- Not recommended for women under 30
- Must be 18 to use Regenere
What sort of “mishappenings” are they worried may occur? And why wouldn’t women in their 20’s be able to use this cream? These make no sense, but they are certainly trying to cover their butts in case you break out in a rash or worse.
Conclusion and Recommendation
If it’s not obvious by now, I would strongly recommend against agreeing to Regenere Facelift Complex’s free trial. It has all the signs of a wrinkle cream scam with multiple red flags to prove it.
Regenere claims their product is clinically proven but they do not provide any links to the clinical trials, nor do they post the ingredients. They simply state it’s their “advanced formula.” I said this before and I’ll say it again – I would never purchase a cream that did not list its ingredients.
There are multiple grammatical errors on the Regenere sales page which usually indicates it originates from a foreign country, which equates to a huge headache later if you want to return the product.
Regenere only allows you 14 days to decide whether or not you like the cream which is not enough time to receive it, much less try it for any length of time.
We believe that the same company that offers Regenere Facelift Complex may also sell “Regenes Lift Cream” as it’s a similar name and its sales pages and offers are identical. Be careful of Regenes Lift Cream as well, and always read the terms and conditions!
How to Cancel Regenere’s Trial
If you have agreed to Regenere’s free trial and wish to cancel your auto-ship, auto-bill arrangement, you need to call the company and request to cancel your free trial right away.
I did some sleuthing (again in the terms and conditions) and I found a couple of phone numbers for Regenere. You can also ask them if they will issue a refund if you send the unused portion back.
If they allow this, they will normally charge you a “restocking fee” of about $35, but at least you’ll get some of your money back.
If they refuse to cancel, or if you cannot reach them, then I would recommend disputing the charges with your bank. You may even need to cancel the credit card altogether in a worst case scenario.
The phone number I found for Regenere are as follows:
Don’t accept free trials of this nature, it’s always better to buy a cream outright that has a money back guarantee.
My top cream Kollagen Intensiv is very effective, I’ve used it for over 4 years with great results! It’s worth a look.

This company is the absolute worst company to work with. They are scammers. Do not answer emails, do not give your money back. DO NOT ORDER ANYTHING FROM THEM.
this is so crooked, a real switch and bait. called did not sign up for this. was assuming you received a small free sample for paying shipping. now they say they are going to bill me $84.95. $89.92 each month.
something needs to be done about this South Beach Cream Inc.
I will be filing with small business and face book every chance I get
They started at 35% and went to 50% credit back I want 100
% and leave me alone and I will do the same
and they do not say you have 14 days
Don’t buy this! It is a scam and you will be out a couple hundred dolllars if you don’t cancel within 14 days!
Don’t get scammed
This is a scam using “Shark Tank” TV show as advertising. This company and others like it (or the same under a different name) WILL scam you. Please read the terms and conditions fully before ordering. They are not readily visible. You will have to look for them on the site. They are very aggressive about collecting your money once you have signed up, and your credit card company (in my case citibank) will not let you dispute it, because of their terms and conditions. If you order the trial package, beware. It is not free, they send you a 30 day supply with a 14 day trial period, which starts when you please the order. Not even when the product arrives. If you are even 1 minute late, (14 days and 1 minute) to cancel, they will charge you the full price. Anyway, again beware. THIS IS A SCAM. And there are many more out there under different names, Allegro, Brio, and others.
Purchased a while back. Just started today. This type of website is being used for a lot of skin creams. Looks some what different depending on the product. It doesn’t take long to recognize it is the same scam. We all need to learn about firming products. When these creams first came out they used the word plumping. Customers figured that out, so the word was changed to firming. Customers love this word. Firming is not permanent. it does not change the initial wrinkle problem. If anytime it is worse. When the firming has stopped working for the day your wrinkles are worst because your skin has stretched with the firming process. These products are not what you think they are. If anything your wrinkles end up being worse. This is the hook in getting people to have to buy more. You end up spending a fortune. Just as it is meant to be it becomes addictive or it is a must have because in reality your problem is worse.
What a Scan
If I could give this product a zero, I would. The entire process was a scan and I was unable to return it. It did not work – even a little and it turned out that they charged me even when I wanted to return it. Do not get this product!
Wish I didnt even have to give it one star…i think at the least minus 5 stars. I got charged the $89.92 also
and the lady on the phone was very unkind when i asked for this charged to be refuned as there were not anywhere where it said I would be charged in 14 days unless I cancelled. I told her, it be stated boldly so people could really see if this not a scam!! She said, I should have read the fine print…I never found the fine print when I went back and looked. What a crock!!….She kept on typing, and I asked, what are you typing????? She said she is asking her manager what we could do …She finally said, after many offers I wouldnt accept, other than a full refund….She said she would send a partial refund..I still said not good enough…she said she would go ahead and charge the other $84 dollars…for what I asked, and she said , for the creams you have in your possention..I said What?? These little thinks you sent me??? She yes, those were the full size bottles. I said, you’ve got to be kidding!! When I asked what she was typing. She said, her manager to see if they could give me a deal…she come back and said they could refund me 1/2..I said I want the whole refund or my CC co. would be investigating this. She said go ahead. WE have dealt them before….UGH!!!! I hope it goes into my favor! Make SURE you cancel ALL further shipments, or you will get charged again!
This is a scam— they started placing all kinds of charges on my cc
Didn’t get a chance to really test this product before they deducted $84 and $89 from my bank acct.Then they proceed to tell me that was for the tiny bottles they send. Here are phone #’s I called. Hope this helps from someone else getting took for their hard earned money. 1-844-223-6412 and 1-888-918-6106 By the way called both and guess what got same person to talk to.
Do not purchase this Regenere trial scam. I paid $34 for 3 items, never realizing it was a trial that I could cancel. I ended up paying $180! Then they tried to sell me more items over the phone.
