BioGeniste Instant Wrinkle Reducer Review
Biogeniste Instant Wrinkle Reducer was just released not too long ago, and promises a wide array of benefits from using their skin cream. Marketed as a botox alternative, we came across this particular product again while looking at a weather channel, and their was another one of those ads that proclaimed “57 year old mom looks 27”.
It then, of course, goes on to say that if you use this cream for just 14 days you will get amazing results. We have actually personally tried many of these creams that make these claims, and we can say that the majority of them don’t work as well as advertised. Let’s see if BioGeniste is any different from them.
What is Biogeniste Instant Wrinkle Reducer?
After some basic research, we learned that Biogeniste works very similarly to other products, and contains an ingredient called matrixyl. This is actually a peptide, which is a fancy name for several amino acids compounded together.
Matrixyl is actually quite effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and is a patented ingredient used in Retinol. There has even been a 6 month clinical study that was conducted on the effects of Matrixyl, which came out favorably.
The Truth About Biogeniste
While the product may work effectively, there is no 57 year old mom, and she did not use this product to lose 20 years or so on her face. This is simply a marketing tactic that is employed to trick both me and you into giving them our credit card information so they can rebill us in the future.
This is not to say that the actual product doesn’t work, but the fact is that if you decide to try their “free trial” they will bill you close to $85 for your trial offer. Just be sure that Biogeniste is worth it to you before you fork over your hard earned cash!
There is extremely limited information available on the internet about Biogeniste, probably because it was just released to the market. We can’t recommend or deny its use, simply because of this lack of information, however, based on our consumer comments below, Biogeniste is sold as a short term free trial, and we always recommend against those, especially when people say they feel like they’ve been “scammed.”

Biogeniste is a SCAM
Unfortunately, my experience was the same as most of the above. My credit cared was charged almost immediately for the "trial" product. You have 15 days from the time of order to cancel the order. If you don't receive the product until after the 15 days, too bad, you don't get to try it and you get charged for a product that did no more than my trusty Vaseline. This is definitely a SCAM and I can't believe I was sucked in. Very embarrassing. Also, one agent "terminated our phone call because I was being rude." He hung up on me and I had to go through the entire phone system twice to cancel the order. I wish there were -stars.
It is very good for my face. I see wrinkles around mouth and eyes disappearing. I am using a little every day
Bullying customer service personnel
I have just spent 30 minutes trying to return an unordered delivery to no avail. The customer services man talked through be constantly and did not allow me to speak. I requested to speak to the manager who was even worse and constantly spoke very fast expecting me not to ask questions as he went through his screed ( well rehearsed response?) and then refused to go through it slowly point by point so i could either ask questions or respond to what he said. I have ended up feeling bullied and £195.30 worse off.
The articles I keep reading, all say that snake venom is an ingredient but I don’t see it actually listed as that on the ingredient list. Trying to find out if that is true?
Somehow I can’t imagine using the venom of a snake in anything. That would cause me concern.
All of the reviews target the marketing tactics and credit card issues.
I don’t really see many that say whether the product did or did not work.
I’d like to see more about the snake part, and whether those that tried the product, actually got some results.
Hi Kelley, I think the post you meant to place this comment was for the Snake Venom Face Cream Review. From what I could research, many of these “snake venom” creams use a synthetic formulation of the venom from a pit vyper. It works to relax/”paralyze” the facial muscles into looking more smooth similar to how botox works. The problem I think stems from this substance being absorbed and affecting other parts of the body… It’s not real snake venom, unless you’re shopping at a back alley store in Thailand perhaps (my guess). 🙂 There is a cream that I recommend using the ingredient argireline, Dermology Wrinkle Cream, which works similarly in relaxing facial muscles and I’ve had great results with it (it’s my #3 recommended cream). Hope this helps! I think a lot of the snake venom stuff is more marketing than anything.
This is a total scam..do not sign up for a trial offer of Biogeniste Instant Wrinkle Cream…with my Credit Card information, I was billed another
$84.76 within a week of receiving the sample cream which I do not even like. When I called to have the company make a correction on my visa card, the employee who spoke to me was not only rude but told me this was ‘my problem.’ In any case, I threw the cream in the trash, contacted my bank to let them know of this scam and whenever I have the opportunity share my experience with others. Do not go for the trial offer…stay away from this company.
Hsaarkoppel, thanks so much for your comment. BioGeniste is one of the worst free trial scams! I’m sorry you had to go through this experience. Please let me know if you’d like a recommendation for a good cream from some of the companies I recommend.
This is exactly the same thing I just went through. I wish I had saw your comment sooner, but unfortunately since I didn’t I just went through the exact same thing. They were rude & their business practices are unethical in my opinion. I hope no one order’s this product to keep from going through this experience.
Sorry Michelle! I wish you’d found my blog sooner too… thank you for your comment. Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com
I too wS caught but not this one only but four others that had Dr Oz as recommending them as alternatives to plastic surgery and dtsting a mother spent just five dollars to get her wrinkle free face. No mention that this mother was surely charged $85 for her five dollar face. I lost five hundred dollars. Am trying to sell unopened jars for pennies on ebay to maybe revover one hundred dollars. I was hoing to give these creamscas gifts. What a big fool am I.
Absolute scam. Thank god I looked at reviews on the internet or I would be not aware of the t&cs about cancelling within 14 days or you would be charged full price. I phoned the company and was put on hold 3x because I expressed my opinion. I asked for the account to be cancelled and was still kept on the phone by the caller trying to sell me the product. I now have to send the product back as it is NOT a free trial at all.
This is a professional scamming company. Under no circumstances should you give them your bank details
Hi Catherine, it still baffles on how many daily comments I get on certain products that they are scams. Sad really! Let me know if you are still looking for a good cream, I’m happy to make a recommendation if you’d like to tell me about your skin. Otherwise, thanks so much for stopping by to comment!
I’m fighting this company right now, this is a huge scam. So far they have charged almost 200.00 on my account. My credit card company is going to take it off, I demand it. This
Sure has put a bad taste in my mouth. I will never order anything on this internet, not worth it. SCAM, SCAM, SCAM,
This is TRULEY a SCAM!! Am going to attempt to report to Better Buisness Bureau. They almost immediately charge to your credit card. Do not buy>>>
Agreeee with others! This is a scam. A 14-day trial, which they said was what I agreed to, will prove nothing. This was their way of getting my credit info to charge the $84.76 in 14 days. Can’t believe I fell for it. They would not give me a refund. I never do this kind of thing and will never again. I do not trust the internet and this is why.
BIOGENISTE IS A RIP-OFF AND A CROOKED COMPANY!!!
Thanks for the reviews all of you have posted. Saved me from a scam. I hope the credit card companies will credit your accounts. They could put the kind of firms out sof buisness.
It is such a scam – I have disputed it through my credit card for whatever good that will do. Hopefully people will read these and not fall into the same trap. Guarantee it will NEVER happen to me again!! Any company that needs to sell their product like this is obviously not on the up and up – just sayin!!!
I agree – it’s a scam. I ordered a trial size bottle and received it 5 days later – 10 days after I ordered it – they charged me $84.76 and would not refund my money. SCAM !!!!! Wish I had read the reviews before I ordered what I thought was a two-week free trial. Beware…..
The biogeniste did nothing for my skin but the scam they pulled left plenty of wrinkles. And that is all you get here—-scammed!
THIS PRODUCT BROKE MY SKIN OUT AND CAUSED ME TO SPEND $125 AT THE DERMATOLOGIST. DO NOT USE
I ordered a “Free Trial” then was charged $84.76 for a tiny trial bottle of the product. This is a scam.
I AM SORRY TO REPORT THAT MY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS PRODUCT IS NOT GOOD. I BROKE OUT WITH LARGE PULSE FILLED BUMPS AND INCREASED REDNESS. SORRY.
