Bellaplex and Hydroxatone are separate anti-wrinkle products, yet they are often mentioned together, and not always in a positive light. If you have tried one of these products, we’d like to hear from you!
We first mentioned these products nearly a year ago when we reviewed over a dozen anti-wrinkle websites. In that time, it appears that Hydroxatone and Bellaplex have endured as two of the most heavily-marketed anti-wrinkle creams in 2012. Let’s take a look at these products.
There are now two Hydroxatone products – the AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex, and the 90-Second Wrinkle Reducer. The official Hydroxatone website offers this product along with several others. You can buy it for $79.95 online as of this writing, and it is also available in some stores, such as Ulta and Macy’s. They also offer a “free trial” which I always suggest avoiding. To their credit, the official website does contain some negative reviews, though it seems as though these reviews originate from Amazon.com product reviews, which – as we’ve seen with most controversial products – appear to have a heavy mix of 5-star and 1-star reviews, with little in between. Perhaps the biggest issue people have with this product is that it is a favorite of spammy internet affiliate marketers making ridiculous claims from phony websites. The Consumer Affairs website lists over 150 reviews, most of them negative, and many of these based on the handling of the free trial, rather than the product itself. Moreover, Complaints Board also appears to be heavily saturated with consumer complaints about payment and free trial issues, rather than the effectiveness of Hydroxatone.
If you have used Hydroxatone, we want to hear what you thought of the product. If you had issues with your order, we’d like to hear that, too.
Even though Bellaplex and Hydroxatone are often mentioned together, they are separate products. Unlike the official Hydroxatone website, the official Bellaplex website emphasizes their free trial from its home page. In fact, I could find no way to simply order the product without the free trial. This is a huge red flag. Free trials of health or anti-aging products are almost universally designed to rip people off. Their testimonials are also unanimously glowing. Another red flag. It should also be of some concern that a Google search of Bellaplex yields ScamBook as the first result, with many consumer complaints about the free trial. Even though ordering Bellaplex from the official website seems impossible, you can find it on Amazon. As with Hydroxatone, the reviews are mostly 5-star or 1-star.
