About Tag Away
Skin tags, also known as acrochordon, are equally common among men and women. They are composed of fibers, ducts, nerve cells, and fat cells and are primarily caused by skin rubbing against skin. People who are more susceptible to developing skin tags are those who are overweight, have diabetes, or women who are pregnant. Many people don’t notice that they have a skin tag; however, those who have larger, more noticeable, skin tags can feel self-conscious of their appearance.
Tag Away is a natural topical formula that is used to get rid of skin tags by drying them up until they flake off. It is made of plant extracts including Cedar Leaf Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia Leaf Oil, Ricinus Communis Seed Oil and contains Thuja Occidentalis which acts as the main active ingredient. Thuja Occidentalis, a natural essential oil, started to be used in the 19th century as a homeopathic treatment.
The cost for two 10ml bottles of Tag Away is $19.95 and the deluxe package includes two 15ml bottles for $30.00. Tag Away should be applied three times a day with a q-tip and results are typically seen within 3-8 weeks after you start the treatment. The company also offer a 30-day money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with their product.
Tag Away has had many complaints online that portray them to have business practices resembling that of a scam. They sell your personal information to telemarketers who immediately begin to bombard you with phone calls shortly after you have made your purchase. These telemarketers call you to verify your address as an excuse to get you to agree to accept their offer which they will charge you for without your knowledge.
Other complaints said that it doesn’t work and felt that a trip to the dermatologist to have it removed was the only promising solution. This criticism is not surprising since it is not approved by the FDA which means it has not been evaluated for its safety and there is no scientific evidence to support its claims. The HPUS stamped approval on the label means that it adheres to the standards of preparation, dosage, and quality assurance set by the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States which is not a promise to its efficacy.
It takes 4-6 weeks for delivery so you have to wait quite a while before receiving your shipment. If you are looking for a quick solution you may want to have it removed by a doctor. If you are willing to spend the time waiting for the product as well as the number of weeks it takes to see any results then it may be worth giving it a try.
Before using Tag Away or any other product which you have never used, consult with a doctor to make sure it is safe for you. In addition, if you have never had a skin tag or are unsure about a skin growth, take the necessary precautions and go to a doctor because they may choose to take a biopsy for further testing.

Tag Away worked for me... eventually!
Dealt with two embarrassing skin tags on my neck throughout teenage and young adult years. Tag Away ad gave me hope but was still skeptical. Used it until the bottle was almost empty with disappointing results... UNTIL (and this seems very important) I applied a band aid for a few days almost 24 hours at a time. The results were dramatic, exciting and almost a little scary. Almost overnight the tag turned black and began to come off on its own within 3 to 4 days. I concede that this is my own personal experience and results could very due to different factors. My bottle was purchased at a retail chain store and though the smell was repellent for months, I'm more than pleased to throw my extremely affordable bottle of vain happiness away not quite empty and feel confident that my neck may never be repellent again - just maybe my personality!
Does NOT work
I purchased Tag Away from Walmart. I used it exactly as instructed for more than 8 weeks on several skin tags. There was no change to any of the skin tags on which it was used! I was very careful to clean the area each time before applying the Tag Away. Still no results what-so-ever.
Just pure c#ap!!!
Been using it for over 6 weeks in a relatively small skin tag. Results so far: nothing, nada, zilch. It's still sitting there like it was before I purchase this crap. It's not even drying up!
Should have known better...Don't get suckered into buying this like I did. Instead get a sharp small scissor, disinfect it and cut it off. Then use some styptic pencil to stop the bleeding. Doesn't hurt more than a pinch. Gone in a second. (Plus this stuff smells worse than crap!)
Cheap worthless crap
Just twizzle your skin tags back and forth with your fingers for a week or so and they will dry up and come off with no scar.
This product is a complete scam- although really almost anything seen on those cheap TV ads with the blue "buy it" screen at the end are ripoffs (I have yet to see one that isn't.)
Use some common sense people you get what you pay for and only shifty companies advertise mail order products on TV these days.
This company should be sued!! I purchased Tag Away via phone from the number provided in their commerical. Then, charged me $30 bucks. The next day my card was charged $1.00 for Budget savers trial 1800-475-1942, Then, another $1.00 For TLG Shopper Trial 1800-526-4848, Then another $1.00 for TLG GreatFN Trial 1800-290-8603, Then $1.95 for Money ValueAccess Trial, And the last transaction was for CDT atWC MO Access Trial. I called the Tag Away 800 number and told them to refund me all these trial fees. They said I had to call all of their partners in crime to cancel the trial periods. If I dont call and canel the trial period, my card will be charged $20 to $45 per Trial every month. Is this legal?????????????????????????
Save your money
I've been applying Tag Away to nine skin tags three times a day for months. I'm just finishing up my sixth bottle and still have nine skin tags. I should have quit after the first bottle failed but assumed it just took longer to work. And, Like everyone else, I was immediately contacted after each purchase to buy other products.
I bought it yesterday and have only applied it about 3 times and my skin tag already came off. It really works. Maybe not for all skin types.
So far, nothing
I've been using it a solid 5 weeks and the tags are still there. No change at all.
After week 2, I increased to applying 5 times a day, still nothing.
I'm not angry about the money spent. What I am angry about is the time wasted on applying and applying and seeing no results.
Snipping takes all of 5 seconds, so I'll go back to snipping.
So in conclusion, this stuff has not worked for me at all.
The reviewers on here are very dramatic.
The smell is strong for about 2-3 minutes. It almost smells like tea tree oil. These people are over-exaggerating it. Every medication for warts, skin tags, ect take time, unless you get it surgically removed. Duh! I've been using it for two weeks and so far I am seeing results. Now I purchased this at Wal-Mart for $15 and if $15-$30 is breaking your bank, you may want to find a new profession! Remember everyone's body is different and will react different.
I so hoped it would work ... have been using on just one of my many skintags to see if it would work ... ten weeks later, skin tag still there. Waste of money! Wart remover actually works better.
this is no good, had 2 bottles, plus it has a bad odor. don't waste your money. I did.
Better Than Matza
Took skin tags from underarm, nose, and tricep.
Also, assisted in ridding me of cheap tendencies.
So far, so good. Working for me.
So far so good. What works for some don't work for all. I've been applyin for 2nights and today would be the third day only x2 a day/night. I've got between 15 to 30 flat tags on tops of hands, and they started to get lighter in color drying up& disappearing. The smell is strong. It has cedar extract amongst other natural strong smelling oils/extracts. I also have 4-6 rather large growths, I'm currently only applying to3 of them, 2 are slightly irritated one is swollen but shrinking in size. Like stated earlier/above thou, (what may work for one- may and may not work for another person. ) I got mine at Dollar General for $15+ refund if unsatisfied within 30 days. I've tried this other stuff called terrasil and its done nothing for 36+ s&h this is way better deal, just do your research as with any product and skin abnormalities and a doctor is almost always your best and safest bet. Of for the smell- this is a dry oil it it only takes a few seconds for it to absorb than you can wash it off. Simple
I have used this product for the last 7 weeks and nothing has happened other than wasting my time.
I am seeing no results.
I wrote to the company 4 weeks ago and told them that heir product does not work and they did say I could send it back for a full refund so I am going to email them again for a pre-paid label and send it back.
Tag No Away
I have been using Tag away for 2 weeks @ 3-4 times a day and the results aren't looking to good. Anyway, I did the fishing line trick like mentioned below and that was quick n easy. I should have done my homework before listening to telemarketers.
I bought Tag Away from my local Walgreens and used as per directions. I applied it 3x a day and did not notice anything. After a week of applying it, I thought maybe 6x day might work. So I took 3 weeks off from work to apply Tag Away to my skin tags 6x a day. Well I am on week 8, my job let me go and I still have these darn skin tags everywhere.
It's a Fraud, does not work.
I have purchase Tag Away (bar code#8 93621 00234) from Walgreens on February 7th, 2013. I have been applying the product to the tags on my neck and chest from Feb. to now and have not experience not ONE change. I think this product is a fraud. I will be contacting the company/person to get my money back. Anything to good to be true usually is.
It worked for me
I purchased product in a store so don't need to worry about the telemaketing issue as others noted. I had a small skin tag on my neck and applied the product 3-4 times/day. Yes - the smell is bad; but the product worked for me. Took about a week for the process.
Tag Away is a RIP OFF
Tag Away is a big RIP OFF. Both my Husband and I have been using this product for about 4 weeks, and our skin tags are as healthy as they were before we started. The smell is so bad that there is no way you could apply this and leave the house even though we used it faithfully as per directions. Gave us terrible headaches and still have the tags. We have learned our lesson. Will take advice from the internet to rid them.
