Bellaplex uses a plethora of ingredients to achieve the reduction of wrinkles in the face. These include Matrixyl 3000, argireline, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. It calls itself a “botox alternative due to the use of ingredients such as argireline.

Using several major ingredients, bellaplex is likely to have effect on the skin. It uses collagen to supplement the body’s natural reserves and rebuild the skin. It thereby helps to improve the skin’s elasticity and reduce unwanted features such as stretch marks. In addition, Matrixyl 3000 has been used to promote the body’s natural production of collagen for the same ultimate purposes as artificial collagen.
While bellaplex uses some proven ingredients, nowhere on the site does it reveal how much of each ingredient is used. The ingredients are generally run of the mill, making it easy to find someone else with essentially the same ingredients who will say. My guess is they are using quite a few fillers, but they don’t want to make it obvious by calling it a proprietary blend. One of the main ingredients they use, argireline, also has no science or otherwise to back its claims. It may or may not work, but nobody actually knows because it hasn’t been studied. The last strike for me came with the “7-day free trial.” On the surface, free trials are appealing to the average consumer. Why not get something for nothing, cancel if it doesn’t work, and keep it if it does? The problem comes with a couple facts. First of all, they always rope you into an autoship program, which is often difficult to cancel and something you may or may not actually want. Second, they are basically telling you they vastly overcharge you for the product. They can’t afford to give you a free trial because the product is great. They can afford that free trial, because they overcharge and you will be paying for all that you have received, whether it be this month or next.
Bellaplex has an relatively effective list of ingredients. However, they use a few questionable tactics to sell their product which, in combination with each other, make me think there is something wrong with it or it is nothing but fillers. $79.99 is cheaper than many of its competitors. But that price for what is likely to be a $10 product is way too much to pay.
