Beverly Hills MD Crepe Correcting Body Complex is the latest cosmeceutical from Beverly Hills MD, a company run by plastic surgeons Dr. Payman Danielpour and Dr. John Layke. They insist this formula targets “crepe-like” wrinkled or sagging skin and refreshes and rejuvenates it for a dramatically younger look and feel with near-instantaneous results.
Why is my skin crepey looking?
Crepey skin is a natural sign of aging that can happen to any woman that make it look wrinkly and paper-like, hence the name. Because our bodies slow down making collagen and elastin, the skin begins to sag, wrinkle, and sometimes becomes thinner because of a loss of fat or moisture.
Some people have a genetic predisposition to the condition, and others get crepey skin from too much sun exposure; with others it’s a combination of factors including menopause. Crepey skin can happen on the arms, neck, hands, face, or anywhere else on the body. It can be frustrating or vexing, but it is purely a cosmetic condition.
What’s in Beverly Hills MD Crepe Correcting Body Complex that makes it so good for getting rid of crepey skin?
Crepe Correcting Body Complex is said to have a few active ingredients that attack the problem from 2 ways: deep cellular hydration along with collagen stimulation.
HydraFirm: They claim this ingredient combines the firming power of algae along with the smoothing properties of lentil, apple, and watermelon rind extracts.
Niacinamide: Also known as vitamin B3, they state it dramatically increases protein and collagen synthesis, resulting in plumper skin.
Riboxyl: An ingredient made by Lucas Meyer Cosmetics that promises to increase ATP, aka energy and oxygenation in cells, leading to fewer wrinkles, improved elasticity and stronger resistance to aging.
Beverly Hills MD Crepe Correcting Body Complex boldly state that 92% of their users declare their skin looks firmer, 96% declare their skin looks smoother and 100% reported their skin appears more youthful.
However, they cite no specific study that supports these claims, but their website does have a few photos and testimonials from women in their early 50s that praise the product after just 2 weeks of use.
How much will they charge me for a jar of Crepe Correcting Body Complex cream for my crepey skin?
Beverly Hills MD Crepe Correcting Body Complex sells one jar for $49, 2 jars for $86, but the default option (and they one they encourage you to buy as their “best value”) is 3 jars for $117.

What do the reviews say about Beverly Hills MD Crepe Correcting Body Complex?
Aside from the 5-star reviews on their own site, there are no consumer reviews on websites that are not affiliated with them.
Other products from Beverly Hills MD do get many passionate reviews here on our site.
“Since I began using the Lift and Firm Sculpting Cream, I have a more youthful appearance. My skins feels tighter and has a nice glow. I was in the ER this past week and the doctor on call could not believe I was 51 years old,” says Jean from Texas.
“I've been using the cream for about a month on my neck, chest, jawbone and cheeks. I really like the moisturizing quality of the cream and I do think my skin looks firmer. As I continue using the cream, I hope to see more positive results,” writes Debbie from Burbank.
And while Beverly Hills MD currently averages a 4-star rating on our site from nearly 60 reviewers, the ones deemed “most relevant” tell a different story:
“I bought 3 jars of [Lift + Firm] after watching one of those sketch animations that last almost 30 minutes. The deal was 3 jars for $105. It seemed like quite the deal as I saw it was being sold elsewhere for much more. It enrolled me in an auto delivery plan through my PayPal account. The creams arrived. I started using it. First of all the smell is pretty off putting. I could get over it if I found it was effective. I have smelled worse and could deal with it. I have used it consistently for about 3 weeks. It takes a while to soak into your skin and the smell is just there. I have noticed no real improvement. I am going to return my now 1/2 empty jar and the other 2 and hopefully will be refunded. I will cancel my auto delivery. I feel like I was a sketch animation victim! It may work for some but not for this mature lady,” said Debz from Miami, FL.
“I must be one of the 15% folks that did not see any improvement at all and used it faithfully for 6 weeks. I took photos and everything, sorry,” says Anita L. from San Francisco.
Why the disparity in Beverly Hills MD reviews?
There are many reasons why people could have such different reactions to the same products. Some may have to do with lower expectations, some of it may be the placebo effect – these testimonials are subjective assessments, not measured wrinkles or elasticity tests.
Beverly Hills MD does appear to make every effort to refund unsatisfied customers as they have no complaints registered with the BBB and an A+ rating.
Still, it’s important to remember that there is still no Fountain of Youth and that cheap skin creams work just as good as expensive ones; the other essential thing with any so-called anti-aging product is to keep your expectations realistic.
"The bottom line is that if these creams could accomplish the same thing as a medical procedure, they would be drugs and not cosmetics…" said Marsha Gordon, MD, vice chairman of dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City in an article for WebMD.
