If you’re not new to Skincare.net, then you know just how much WE LOVE SERUMS. Seriously, there’s a lot to be said about people that use skin care serums and the condition in which their skin is. However, what’s most important to understand is that not all skin serums are created equal. That’s one of the reasons we decided to dive into the Bella Gold Serum when we first learned about it. We call a spade a spade, no sugar coating or beating around the bush – not here.
Which is exactly why it was necessary to follow up on this brand. We wanted to determine why there are so many negative reviews about the Bella Gold Serum. Of course, there’s always going to be a frustrated consumer that decides to speak out publically about their experience but when you have a sleuth of people express sheer frustration about a product and the manufacturer, well, that’s something that cannot be ignored.
How do I put this, many Bella Gold Serum customer are claiming that this product is nothing but a money grabber. Sure, everyone is entitled to their opinions, but we wanted to do some extra digging to find out the truth about this company and everything that they and/or represent. Is it really trash or perhaps misinformation posted in the reviews?
We dove in head first.
Please note, what we’re about to share with you is personal opinion only and should not be taken as medical information. Using skin care products is serious and all consumers are advised to speak with a licensed dermatologist before trying this product or any others. I’ll kick things off with a rundown of the ingredients.
Bella Gold Serum – The Product Overview & Ingredients
I did some digging and learned quite a bit about this anti aging serum. I can tell you that the manufacturer claims that the product is an anti aging product that helps to fight off the development of wrinkles, crows feet, fine lines, and even creases in the skin. The serum is said to produce results after using for 4-6 weeks.
I took a quick journey over to the Amazon listing and was unimpressed with what I saw. Not to mention, I could not even find the corporate website for the product. I’ll tell you right now if a skin care brand doesn’t have a website – RUN. Simple as that my friend.
Somehow, some way, I was able to stumble upon some information on the ingredients. Although minimal, it was better than nothing. Based on my research, here’s what I found…
Xanthan gum – This is an ingredient that used to keep cosmetic products stable.
Acetyl-hexapeptide 8 – We’ve seen this a lot in other products. It’s also known as Argireline and is mainly incorporated to help reduce wrinkles. More on this here.
Lavender Extract – We love this ingredient, but it’s likely only incorporate in here for fragrance reasons.
Diamond Powder – Not sure why this was included but it’s supposedly an exfoliant of some sort.
Hydrolyzed Soy and Whole Wheat Protein – This is used to help condition the skin and reduce pore size.
The problem is that we have zero idea just how much of each are included in this product. These ingredient amounts could be so small that they are virtually ineffective.
Chances are that the ingredients are safe and non-toxic but without inspecting things closer, it’s tough to say. What we can say is that using this is less invasive than getting cut or pricked with needle injections.
There are some disadvantages to using the Bella Gold Serum. For starters, as previously stated, you have no idea what the concentration level is with regards to the ingredients. None of that information is listed on the packaging or product. This may cause major issues for people with sensitive skin.
I also don’t like the fact that they do not incorporate any independent trials with this product. Who’s to say if it truly works?
Buying Bella Gold Serum
If you decide to stick your neck out there and buy the product, then you’re going to end up on some shady website, a third-party retail marketplace or Amazon. There is no real website for the brand based on my research, so you will not find that. I suggest staying away from these third-party sites anyway as they are typically selling junk aside from Amazon that is.
The Free Trials
The company was once running some free trials it seems Consumers didn’t know what they were getting into only to be hit with absurd billing charges. Assuming that they failed to close their subscription, then they ended up with a fresh jar of product and another charge on their credit card. It’s an ugly vicious cycle that can really beat up your credit card. The good news is that it seems they’ve done away with this practice. If you’re curious about these free trials and how to avoid them, then I suggest you read this page. I’ve laid out all the tricks that these companies pull and how they do it. You’ll know exactly what to look out for after reading this.
If you take a close look at the third party reviews, you’ll see that most of them are negative. People are pissed about getting their card banged over and over. It’s something many would refer to as deceptive billing and they’ve got plenty of reason to do so. It is what it is in my personal opinion.
Based on what I’ve seen and what I know about this product, I cannot encourage anyone to buy it. The lack of information, deceptive billing and lack of independent trials is enough to make any informed buyer want to run like the wind.
