There is so much of interest in Dermapril-SP with matrixyl 3000 that I thought I should get hold of a bottle for myself. So I went to the Dermapril web site and found that buying this potion is a lot like joining one of those book clubs in the 1970s.

The 'free' trial isn't quite free since you have to pay $5.95 for shipping. You get 14 days to decide whether you like Dermapril enough to keep it and to be automatically enrolled in a program in which $69.95 plus another $5.95 is deducted from your credit card once a month, in return for a bottle of Dermapril.

Even assuming that Dermapril honors its promise to allow me to cancel at any time, I have a problem with the scheme for a number of reasons. First, 14 days isn't really long enough to get a good measure of a cream and whether its effects are anything other than superficial. Secondly, its a hassle to get out of the scheme. You have to call them, wait to get an email, then package up the rejected bottle, trot down to the post office and pay another five bucks to send it back. I wonder how many people end up staying in the program as a result of inertia.

Thirdly, I think $75.95 (over $900 a year) is quite a lot to fork out every month. Especially for a potion that doesn't strike me as outstanding. Whilst Dermapril does have matrixyl 3000, a very good antioxidant, it also has about 20 ingredients that I would describe as padding (emulsifiers, silcones and the like). I think I'll pass.
