Crepe Erase: A Consumer's Guide
My skin is getting dryer as I get older. Lately, I’ve notice that the wrinkles around my eyes have grown deeper, and the dryness gets worse in the winter.
I used to wake up in the morning, and my skin would feel like sandpaper.
What’s worse is that it was starting to sag—adding insult to injury.
Luckily, I found a product system that has solved my skin’s hydration problems. It’s even reversed some of the damage done by cold air and smog.
It might not work for everyone, but for me it’s been awesome.
The product is appropriately called Crepe Erase and it keeps my skin smooth and soft.
It feels like my skin has gone back in time by 10 years.
Crepe Erase is the first line of products with TruFirm, ™ that can hydrate your skin and prevent that crepey texture from taking over your skin.
It comes with seven moisturizers that permeate each layer of your dermis and keep it hydrated through both the summer and winter.
Even if you live in a cold climate, Crepe Erase can help to prevent chapped skin and windburn. Instead, you get smooth skin that is soft to the touch.
Dry skin exacerbates wrinkles and can make you look older, so in a sense, Crepe Erase also keeps your skin youthful.
There are several products available in this line, so you can target both your face and body. Like most product lines, this one works best when you use all three products in each line.
The products uses a system called TruFirm ™, and the company claims this product is the first of its kind on the market. It works by repairing the fibrous tissue in your skin to keep it looking firm and plump.
Crepe Erase infuses your skin with extracts. The skin’s fibrous tissue tends to breakdown as you age—or when you expose it to the elements.
Cold air, UV rays and other harmful elements dry out your skin and age it faster. This is what causes your skin to slacken and wrinkle—giving it the look of crepe.
Crepe Erase and TruFirm ™ work by reinforcing the delicate skin tissue, so the skin can retain its elasticity.
Many users have commented that this product helps to smooth skin, improve hydration and soften the texture. Users report it can slough off decades of dry skin in just a few weeks.
In addition, Crepe Erase is also known to firm sagging skin on arms, neck and décolleté. Finally, it’s able to plump skin and give the skin a little lift.
Crepe Erase contains a variety of natural ingredients that are known to plump, smooth and soften skin.
Some of these ingredients include:
Cocoa seed butter
Those ingredients are not only natural, but they can help the skin heal and prevent it from further damage. They contain fatty acids, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid that all aid in moisturizing the dermis.
Easy to Use
Luckily, this product system is extremely easy to use and can be integrated into your current beauty routine.
The product line is available for both the face and boy. Both systems use a three-step process to ensure all products are realistic to use. Each routine should be performed daily.
The Body Line
The body line comes with an exfoliating body polish, an intensive body repair treatment and an ultra-hydrating lotion.
The body routine starts with an exfoliating body polish. Simply moisten your skin, and squeeze a dime-sized dollop onto your palm. Massage the product into your skin, and focus on target areas.
You might want to start with the neck, arms or chest before working your way down to your legs. Use circular motions to massage the product into your skin thoroughly. This will help remove dead skin cells that have accumulated over the years. This first step is important to create a clean canvas of hydration.
Rinse in the shower with warm water.
The second step is to apply the intensive body repair treatment. You’ll need to wait for your skin to dry before starting this step. You can pat your skin dry after the previous step if you like.
Take a dime-sized dollop of the body repair treatment on each targeted area of your body. Use a similar motion as you used during the application of the exfoliating body wash. Simply use a circular but upward motion for the body repair treatment.
Continue to massage your target areas for one minute. You’ll want to keep an eye on the treatment to ensure it’s completely absorbed into your skin.
Finally, it’s time to apply the bonus product:
The ultra-hydrating body lotion.
It will ensure your skin is super soft and protected from the elements. You’ll want to apply this a little more liberally than you applied the first two products.
Squeeze a quarter-sized dollop onto your palm. You can use circular motions like you used in the first two steps. Make sure you apply the lotion to all of the target areas as well as the rest of your body.
The Face Line
The face line comes with a refining facial scrub, a restorative facial treatment and a firming eye serum.
Apply the face line in a similar process. Start by applying the refining facial scrub.
Pour a dime-sized dollop onto your palm.
Massage in circular motions into your facial skin for up to two minutes.
Rinse your face, and pay attention to make sure the product has been rinsed from your skin.
Next, apply the restorative facial treatment. This product comes in an easy-to-use pump.
Squeeze two pumps into your palm, and apply in circular motions to your face and neck. You can massage the product into your skin for up to two minutes. Make sure your skin has absorbed the product completely.
Don’t wash the restorative facial treatment off your face.
Finally, apply the advanced firming eye serum.
Start by applying a small amount to your fingers. Use about one pump per eye. Be careful not to get the product in your eyes, and don’t massage the product into your skin (the way you did the other products).
Simply use your ring fingers to pat onto the surface of your eyes. Make sure you pay attention to your eyelids and corners of your eyes.

My Take on Crepe Erase
Crepe Erase has done an amazing job with some of my skin issues and a so-so job in other departments.
I love that it’s made with all natural ingredients.
The company uses botanical extracts to keep my skin looking plump, so I don’t need to worry about harsh chemicals.
The exfoliators do a great job sloughing off dead skin and they aren’t harsh.
I never walk out of the shower with red or irritated skin.
I also like that I can see the product working practically immediately. It takes a few days to weeks to see dramatic results, but my skin looked hydrated almost right away.
My main concern with the product is the amount of time I need to devote to applying it every day and the cost of replacing it as I burn through the bottle.
I have a hard time incorporating a daily moisturizing routine into my day. This might have something to do with why my skin is so dry in the first place.
You also need to wait a few weeks to see anti-aging results, and that felt a little frustrating at first.
Reviews: What are People Saying?
The biggest complaint you see over and over with Crepe Erase is not the product’s performance. It’s working with the company itself. Customers are unknowingly signed up for a subscription that is made nearly impossible to cancel. Even after repeated phone calls to the company.
If you chose to use Crepe Erase, we recommend ordering through Amazon for a one time only purchase. This will allow you access to the benefits of the product without the harassment of the company who makes it.
The reviews overall are still quite mixed—even when you take out the complaints about subscriptions. Only about 1/3 of people really love the product. Another 1/3 found it worthless, and the rest were somewhere in between.
I used every day for a month and nothing happened. My hands still wrinkles, not to mention other areas. It does not work as claimed. Jane Seymour probably had several plastic surgery procedures done. This product will not do anything for you. Highya
It actually works. No one was more surprised than I was, since I have tried a lot of products. And a little goes a long way, so while it is pricy (by my standards) it is lasting a long time and doing what it is supposed to. Amazon
I have used this for almost 1 month and see no change in my face, arms or top of the knees. Very disappointed in the product and will request refund. I had a problem in the beginning with ordering. I ordered a 30 day supply, but they insisted I ordered the 90 days supply. The amount of product I was sent would in no way last 90 days. Not a happy customer. –Bright Reviews
The exfoliating scrub is pretty good. It's not too rough to use daily and does make your face feel nice and smooth. However, I didn't notice much of a change in my skin texture or moisture content, and didn't really notice much difference in the wrinkling of the skin on my arms. Crepe Erase
Allure Magazine skin care experts did an in-depth review of Crepe Erase and here’s what they concluded:
Basically, this product is a really, really good moisturizer for superdry skin. But if you've got deep wrinkles, you're better of sticking to the tried-and-true favorites, like retinol and a few visits to your derm. Allure Magazine
There are some critical warnings you should consider before buying this product.
I have not experienced negative results, but some users have complained that the product has adverse results. You’ll want to try a small test patch on your skin before using this product.
Some users complained that the body products can burn if you use them on your face. It’s probably not the best idea to use a skincare system for your body on your face, but perhaps the reviewers did not know they were purchasing a body care system.
A few people complained that the bottle was not clearly marked that the product was for the body only. The product has never had a recall or any other major issues that you need to be concerned about.
How to Get the Best Results
If you want to get the most out of Crepe Erase, you need to follow the instructions verbatim.
You also need to use the product daily.
This can be a little challenging for some people, but I think the process is worth it. I don’t love the idea of taking 15 to 30 minutes out of my day to apply a product, but I’ve seen the results so I keep with it.
Alternatives to Crepe Erase
If you want to look young and beautiful and enjoy hydrated skin, there are products other than Crepe Erase that work just as well.
One of the most popular skincare products on the market right now is called SK-II Anti-Aging Cream from Japan. SK-II has great results and even a few celebrity clients. Unfortunately, this product is more expensive than Crepe Erase. It’s also a little difficult to find in the United States. If you have the extra cash, try both and make your own assessment.
L’Oreal has a product line called Revitalift. The company offers several products that promise to highlight, moisturize and lift your skin. This product also boasts an SPF of 30 to ensure your skin won’t suffer any further damage from the sun. Consumers love it. We would too if it didn't contain parabens.
Finally, there’s RoC’s multi correction line that offers a four-zone moisturizer with SPF 30. Both the RoC and L’Oreal lines are available at drugstores around the United States and retail for under $20.
