When I’m sent a product to review that’s not a ‘known’ brand or it’s a new launch, the first thing l do is look it up online to get a feel of what it is and others’ experiences of using the product – because someone always gets there first!
The second thing, is a 1-2 week patch test – you can never be too cautious. When that’s OK then I’m ready to start the trial.
There are many reasons why we develop crepe like skin as we get older. Natural factors such as the menopause, ageing, and the loss of elasticity and collagen that once plumped up our skin are the prime culprits. Lack of moisture too can rob skin of its suppleness and youthfulness.
Crepe Erase® is our NEW and exclusive skin care system. Formulated specifically to target stubborn signs of ageing all over the body, this innovative system with TruFirm™ Complex leaves skin feeling softer, tighter and smoother-looking, alleviating the look of crepey skin. Only Crepe Erase® contains TruFirm™ Complex.
WHAT IS TRUFIRM™?
The TruFirm™ Complex is a super-charged, intensive skin hydration system packed with skin enhancing plant extracts and ingredients, including shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, beeswax, dill extract and apple extract.
This is designed to help treat and improve the look of ageing, slack and crepey skin, to support and reinforce the skin’s own netting.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
There are 5 products that together, work to deliver smoother, firmer, younger looking skin on your body and face.

Advanced Firming Eye Serum (5ml) Bonus product
Using fingertips, gently pat in an upward direction on eyelids and pat around the outer corner of the eyes all the way to the inner corners – avoiding direct contact with the eyes.
There are quite a few steps to this system and it’s a good idea to check out the official Crepe Erase website for more detailed instructions to get the most out of the products and apply them effectively.
I’m trialling the Crepe Erase® 5-Piece Full-Size Kit £119.97 (or 3 monthly payments of £39.99).
2-Piece Introductory Kit (Body Polish & Body Repair Treatment) for £29.99 when you take out a regular 3 monthly subscription or £39.99 as a one-off purchase.
There are all sorts of mixed reviews of Crepe Erase on the net. Some of the negative ones say that at best, the most this system can achieve is that it will intensively hydrate the skin. This high level of moisturisation will in turn give the appearance of smoother i.e. crepe free, skin. That’ll do me.
I’ve also read some concerns about the fact that there’s a Crepe Erase subscription service where the next period’s products are automatically delivered to you. It’s all on the website, but you do have the option of buying one kit, be it the 5 part Deluxe Set or the 2-part Introductory Kit. If you don’t see tangible results after using them, then you’re not going to opt in and subscribe – it’s as simple as that.
I have received the products for free, but I haven’t been paid to trial Crepe Erase, so this is not a sponsored post. I am a ‘real’ person and I will be applying Crepe Erase products to the most crepey parts of me which are my hands. Actually, scrub that, only one hand. For this trial, I will photograph both hands, but only use the products on one.
I know that if I had regularly applied hand creams (and sunscreen) throughout the years – and there really are some fantastic hand creams that instantly smooth the appearance of crepey skin – check out L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream and Stratum C Hand Care Cream for Mature Skin, then they wouldn’t look so old and wrinkled. I just have a problem with anything too greasy on my fingers and hands and I’m paying the price now! I will be really interested in the results of this trial.
