I’ve covered this type of product many times before but never this specific one. Today’s product which I’m reviewing focuses on improving the neck and decollete area. These are common problem areas which many people have had to deal with over the years. The product is called the Belle Vie Neck Firming Cream and just as you’d suspect, it’s made by Belle Vie. You know I can’t just rely on one simple product sales page, I have to dig into things and learn exactly what others are saying about the product as well. Which is exactly why I’m diving into this head first, wasting no time at all here!
I’ll start by covering things I discovered on the company website…
More About Belle Vie Neck Firming
The first thing I’m going to share is everything that I learned about while visiting the company website. Unfortunately, I didn’t learn much at all. It took me a while to actually find the official company website, which is bellevieskincare.com. When I finally came across the site, I was immediately skeptical and I’ll tell you why.
The website was about as plain jane as can be and super amateur looking. Taking a glance at the image on the homepage, it looks as though the company took a stock image and combined it with some product shots, touched things up in Photoshop and called it a day. It’s just way to cheesy and fake in my opinion.
Once I got past the one image on the homepage, I quickly noticed that they have some quote by Jim Rohn front and center. I get it, quotes help sell products, but you’re taking an entreprenuer, author and motivational speaker and using his quote to sell your personal skin care brand? I mean, this is such a stretch and marketing gone wrong that I don’t even know where to begin.
Anyway, I don’t want to bash the company too much but the website did absolutely nothing for me. Tbe homepage was as bare as can be. The about page (which typically is the most important page) spoke very little about the brand and it’s creators. Based on the few sentences shared on the site, they market the brand as if they’ve spent years researching and testing natural extracts in order to help best restore individuals skin and appearance. They claim that the products are able to provide “comprehensive care and protection” in order to help you achieve the most radiant and youthful looking skin possible. Does it really do this? The debate is still out.
Looking even deeper into the company website, it looks like this brand has been out since 2016 at a minimum. I was able to determine that based on the copyright of the website. Now, that being said, the company still only showcases one product on their website, the Restorative Eye Cream. The details of that product are for an entirely different conversation.
I’d also like to add that the company doesn’t provide any contact number or customer support other than a basic submit form on the website. At any rate, that’s what I was able to gather from the company website. There’s no corporate information, contact information, customer service number or anything at all. It’s missing a lot of pieces that many of us would consider to be requirements when purchasing skin care products. At any rate, that’s what I was able to gather from the site. Unfortuntely, it wasn’t much but enough to keep us interested. Okay, moving on to the actual product.
Belle Vie Neck Firming Cream Details
Here’s what I can tell you about the neck firming cream. The first thing I’m going to tell you is to not buy it just yet. Why you ask? Well, because there’s something that I just rubs me the wrong way about it. If you take a close look at the label, you’ll notice that it claims to be able to prevent the loss of skin elasticity as well as reinforce the natural tightness of your skin. Lastly, it says that it can moisturize your skin. The container is a one ounce (30 gram) pump dispenser.
Daily Recommended Application
If you read deeper into the label, you’ll notice they provide instructions on how to use this product and when. According to the label, it should be used daily both in the morning and evening. All you need to do is apply a small amount of cream to both the neck and decolette area. Simply apply the product from the bottom of your neck, working your way to the jaw line.
I was finally able to gather some company information from the actual product. The information provided is as follows:
3422 SW 15 Street
Deerfield Beach, FL 33442
If you’re interested in learning more aboutthe corporate background of this company, then I suggest you do some searches using that information. My personal opinion is to not spend too much time focusing on the company though. You need to focus on the product more than the company.
If you head on over to the Amazon.com listing, you’ll quickly be able to view the entire list of ingredients. It does contain a couple of ingredients which we’ve covered before such as squalene and hyaluronic acid.
Assuming that you decide to try this out, you should do so with caution. By that, I mean that you should only try it by testing a small area of your skin to see how it reacts. If in full use, you end up noticing that your skin is becoming irritated or red then you should discontinue use almost immediately.
Amazon Product Listing
If you take a close look at the Amazon product listing you’ll notice a few things. The first thing you’ll notice is that the product has almost no reviews at all. I think when I reviewed this product I only saw three customer reviews displayed. Now, youcan imagine just how low that is given all the people that shop on Amazon. To make matters even worse, the reviews have 3.3 out of 5.0 ratings. Not going to beat around the bush, those numbers are pretty darn awful considering the low number of reviews. I’ve screenshot the reviews so that you can read them.
As far as price is concerned, the Belle Vie product costs $18.95 for one and it ships from Amazon. This is a good thing, because if you don’t end up liking the product, you can alway send it back and ask for a refund no questions asked.
What They Say On Amazon
If you take a look at the Amazon listing, you’ll notice that they make claims that the product can prevent loss of elasticity, that it reinforces the natural tightness, and that it promotes collagen cell proliferation. They also claim that this product will help moisturize your neck and decolette region.
They do offer free 2-day shipping for all Amazon prime members as well as the A-to-Z Guarantee. However, that doesn’t necesssarily mean that you should pruchase the product. I’m just sharing the facts with you here.
Okay, so the I’ve come to the conclusion that this just isn’t a wise purchasing decision to make. There are plenty of other neck creams online to choose from, especially on Amazon. The one thing that I can say to you is that you’d be smart to not make a single purchase until you read this page showcasing the best neck creams of 2017. If I might add, I suggest you take a look at this Bio Placenta cream as it works well on the neck region.
