DermaRESTORE Advanced Stretch Mark and Scar Cream

DermaRESTORE Advanced Stretch Mark and Scar Cream Review

DermaRESTORE is a product designed to eliminate stretch marks and scars that has gained a lot of positive feedback. It comes from PRI (Phoenix Rejuvenation Institute), a relatively small skin & hair care company based in Arizona. The only other product the company is known for is its Formula500 hair regeneration system.


TO THE POINT: DermaRESTORE is actually a decent product. It's not the absolute best (in our opinion that title belongs to TriLASTIN-SR) but it does work when used properly and used daily for about 1 1/2 to 2 months (perhaps a little longer for very old, deep, or intensely colored stretch marks).

About the Product

DermaRESTORE is a topical treatment that is applied two times each day. A small amount of the cream is massaged into the skin of the affected areas once in the morning, and once again at night. This process is repeated daily until the desired area is clear of stretch marks or

ATTENTION LADIES!! Okay let's start off with my situation... I'm 20 years old, my mother never got stretch marks so when I went to her for help she was no help... Dang it Dad... So I was on Depo birth control and gained 30 pounds in 3 months. Stretch marks galore. I tried many lotions but none seemed to work. I bought this one in last chance hopes! It worked! I used it very abundantly twice a day for about 3 weeks and then switched to just after I showered and rubbed it in all the way and the results have made me feel much more confident. I cried over these stretch marks.. But because of this scar and skin complex I am ready to let the snow melt and take on summer! I only used it on fresh stretch marks But my results have made me so happy. I hope the same for whoever else makes the purchase!

Actually worked really good on my stretch marks.It is impossible to get rid of stretch marks (ask any doctor) so don't believe anyone who says you can BUT this did a great job of repairing my poor skin and fading my stretch marks.They are now white and soft and much less noticeable then before.Would buy again if I got more and would recommend to anyone in need.The smell is a little strange but it wasn't bad enough to bother me.

Athena, Amazon reviewer

The DermaRESTORE listing on Amazon has a pretty impressive rating. For a product without a big name behind it that's a TON of reviews and an oddly high score. It's just too suspicious. That information coupled with the fact that a few people pointed out that reviews were bought points to foul play here.

Our Review

Despite the fact that this product has 100s of positive reviews we are extremely skeptical of its effectiveness. After testing it out for nearly 3 months we concluded that the results were moderate at best. There was a slight improvement in skin patches afflicted with stretch marks but it wasn't anything impressive.

In fact, other stretch mark removal creams have consistently performed far better than DermaRESTORE, and did so in less time. This is another reason we believe the claims that the company paid individuals to leave positive reviews for their product on the Amazon listing.

For better and faster results we highly recommend trying a different product such as SkinCeption Intensive Stretch Mark Therapy or TriLASTIN-SR. Both of these products are proven to work well, are about the same price, and are far more likely to leave you a happy customer than DermaRESTORE.

Does it Work?

While both customer reviews and clinical studies work in favor of DermaRESTORE we DO NOT believe it is the most effective at getting rid of stretch marks, scars, or any other skin issue. Our own tests showed some improvement and the real assessments we discovered from customers that were not paid for their opinion reveal that the cream can be effective, but not for everyone.

DermaRESTORE Ingredients

For safety reasons we always recommend knowing exactly what's in ANY product you intend to apply to your body or ingest. After all, every person is different and some may have bad experiences with certain ingredients or even be allergic to them.

That being said, here are the primary ingredients found in DermaRESTORE:

  • Deionized Water
  • Aloe Vera Gel
  • C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate
  • Glyceryl Stearate
  • PEG-100 Stearate

Where to Buy It

Currently it seems that the primary place you can buy DermaRESTORE from is Amazon. Even the official Phoenix Rejuvenation Institute website directs visitors to the Amazon listing for purchasing. It is, however, also available for purchase at:

  • Overstock.com
  • Groupon (time-sensitive deal that pops up once in a while)

You can also find this product on eBay, but we always tell people to be extremely cautious when purchasing any cosmetic products from this website because there have been MANY scams in which individuals used the official bottle, replaced its contents with basic lotions, and sold it as the authentic solution.

For better and faster results we highly recommend trying a different product such as SkinCeption Intensive Stretch Mark Therapy or TriLASTIN-SR. Both of these products are proven to work well, are about the same price, and are far more likely to leave you a happy customer than DermaRESTORE.
