Today, I’m going to discuss the popular Aroamas Advanced Silicone Scar Sheets on Amazon.
Does this product live up to its claims? Let’s find out. ⭐
ⓘ In today’s post, I’ll share my 2¢ on Aroamas Advanced Silicone Scar Sheets!
Aroamas Advanced Silicone Scar Sheets
Summary: Aroamas is a brand of Amazon-only silicone products with over 3,000+ reviews (however, I find the star rating distribution to be very questionable). 🤔
Best For: Small-to-Medium Scars, including Hypertrophic Scars, Keloids, Acne Scars, and those from Surgery, Injury, or Burns
Key Ingredients: 100% Silicone
Get It @ Amazon
If you search for “silicone sheets” on Amazon.com, you’ll no doubt come across this popular brand of silicone products: Aroamas.
With over 3,000+ reviews and a whopping 4.7 out of 5.0, it must be pretty good, right? 😮
Well, I haven’t personally used Aroamas products before, but I did notice a couple of red flags while browsing their Amazon product page and doing research on this company.
Based on their website, Aroamas is what you would call an Amazon dropshipper. In other words, a company that sells a wide variety of products on Amazon (usually exclusively) and then contracts with a third-party manufacturer to create the products themselves.
For example, Aroamas also sells things like wart removers, nail fungus pens, and nicotine patches. Here’s a screenshot of their website:
In my opinion, the main problem with most dropshipping brands is the low product quality.
Think about it: since this company is a “middle man” between the manufacturer and the consumer (although they do run their own marketing and advertising), they have almost no control over the actual manufacturing quality and are incentivized to use the lowest cost manufacturer to maintain a profit margin (and cover expenses like listing on Amazon, advertising, shipping, etc.).
Now, I don’t want to paint all dropshippers with a broad brush, but generally speaking, there are tons of these types of brands on Amazon and some of them engage in less-than-ethical behavior when it comes to manipulating user ratings, creating fraudulent reviews, or encouraging positive reviews (such as in exchange for a free product or full refund).
In this case, I find the rating distribution of Aroamas very questionable (and that’s putting it lightly!):
- 85% of ratings were 5-stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- 9% of ratings were 4-stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐
- 6% of ratings were 1-, 2-, or 3-stars ⭐, ⭐⭐, ⭐⭐⭐
But consider the fact that ScarAway and Mederma (two of the most popular scar products) managed to get only 50-65% ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ with a much higher percentage of negative reviews (~20-30% in the 1-, 2-, or 3-star buckets) compared to Aroamas (only 6% in the same buckets):
In other words, if we take the rating distribution at face value, it means Aroamas is a vastly superior product to ScarAway and Mederma with 85% ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ compared to 53% and 65%, respectively.
To understand how ridiculous this is, I found a product with a similar star rating distribution: Duracell’s high-quality AAA batteries with 88% ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐. Something just isn’t right here.
Let me be clear. I’ve got nothing against Aroamas but I find the rating distribution very questionable and I’m almost certain there’s been some degree of rating manipulation involved here. ⚠️
Finally, here’s one positive review and one negative review for Aroamas:
- “I’m not sure how I’ve gone through my entire life without knowing that these were a thing. I have a keloid scar on my shoulder that randomly appeared for seemingly no reason when I was a kid. I had an injection when it first appeared to help with it but nothing ever changed. All these years later I decided to inquire about removal and was quoted $1,400 for several laser treatments. No thank you. So I did some research of my own and found out about these silicone strips. I’m so happy that I did. I’ve had this scar for almost 20 years so I assumed it would take months to see any progress at all – it’s been a week and there’s already a noticeable difference. I still think it’ll take several months to see the best results, but there is no question that it has already helped quite a lot. I haven’t noticed much change in the redness of the scar, but it is absolutely flatter than a week ago.”
- “I was really excited to try these as I heard that silicone sheets are best to use on scars after breast augmentation. I was incredibly disappointed to find out how flimsy these are, you basically can’t wear them on any body part that’s going to get a lot of movement, mine kept balling up and getting stuck to each side or would just fall off after a few hours, such a waste. No matter how dry my skin was I feel like they didn’t stick well enough and would get linty very easily. Also I feel like the sheets left a reddish mark on my skin causing the area around my scar to look even worse. I can’t seem to find anything that works. Maybe their silicone gel works better then these? Again, don’t bother with these, they’re a waste of money and effort.”
My Verdict: Aroamas is a bestseller with 3,000+ ratings and a whopping 85% ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ratings. Personally, I’m skeptical of the rating distribution. Moreover, at the current price (~$28 for 8 sheets), ScarAway is actually cheaper (~$16 for 12 sheets).
