FREE turn back clock solutions, are never free...

Jan 16, 2014
Look at this banner, Have you ever fell for such commercial before?

I, almost did...

I have been seeing this attractive tagline and story on my facebook page at least 5 times in the past one month. Just look at the before / after photos, isn't it amazing?

To think that you could easily turn back clock without a need of Botox? I read every single comments from the customers on the products and as always, there are gimmicks for sure but it looks so real as many really gave big thumbs up on their products citing their own experience.


Just to name a few common, popular ones you might have seen often:
Bliss Radiance Rejuvenation System

Lifecell Anti Aging Cream

Revitol

So right before I took out my credit card, I decided to do a search on the reviews like what I always do, and here's what I've found out:
http://www.theguardian.com/money/2012/feb/17/free-skin-cream-trial-victims

It's quite a long article but basically it explains that many victims, claimed their free trial version and provided their credit card details to pay a small amount of delivery fee, some received their cream, some didn't, but what they all experienced in common, is that they then found themselves locked into a monthly recurring payments applied to their credit or debit card, with no apparent way to stop either the deliveries, or the debits.

Then the question is, how did those companies do it?
Just in 4 simple steps:
- appealing photos, positive customer reviews to make you believe it's just going to work..
- FREE trial with a low delivery fee, that makes you feel worthwhile even if the products are not going to work, so, nothing much to lose..
- professional looking websites with celebrity photos (sometimes), that appear as banner adverts on well-regarded, mainstream websites, that gives you a false sense of confidence..
- A statement under "Terms and Conditions" saying :"By placing my order, I agree to the terms of offer, which explain that I must cancel within xx days of today to avoid enrolment in monthly delivery program, which ships fresh supply for $$$ each month.", mind you, the first time you get to read this statement, is usually the time after you've rang your credit card company to lodge the complaint.

The next time you come across such adverts, ask yourself, if their products are so effective, why can't we find them in major departmental stores?
So ladies, be wary, be wise!!

Updates (Jan 06, 2015)
I was a little surprised today to read this piece of information online:
Top 5 Anti-aging products 2015 (wondering how people know they are the best of 2015 when we are only 6 days in to the new year??!!)

Anyway, I just want to say, I can't stop myself from reading their reviews submitted by their customers. I paid attention to some vlogs as it's pretty easy to see the effect from videos.

One Example of the most popular review video here: LifeCell Anti-Aging Cream Review: I Test Out LifeCell Cream for 6 Weeks

Before you start to think I am trying to take back my words a year ago, as obviously this lady sounds convincing here, I am not sure if she looks convincing though. Do read up the reviews on amazon too.  With so much contradicting reviews, I would say, try it only if you have a fat wallet and I wish you are one of the lucky ones who can see great results as many others...

I have just purchased the bliss cream and now I have read your article what should I do now I am worried that they will remove the monthly instalments u were talking about

Mummy Chan said...

oh my friend I am sorry to hear that, monitor your credit card bill closely and contact the credit card company if you see deduction on monthly instalment. I still wish to stay positive and hope that the product is going to work for you, because to me, if the product is good, then I do not mind paying for sure. =)

I already decided to buy..made my personal info filled up..but when i saw that i needed to fill up about card number..i changed my mind and decided to search for awhile about the product..but i cant find the product even in different sites...im so thankful that i found and read this post even the others..but im worried that even though i didnt fill up or give them my card number, i already gave my personal info..add..contact num..etc..is there no harm on my part even they know my personal info?thanks a lot..Godbless

Mummy Chan said...

Based on my personal knowledge, I do not think you need to worry much since you have not provided your card number and there's no authorization for them to deduct any amount from your card, =)

i'm really really worrying about my credit card , i just paid @_@''

I ordered Bliss Radiance set and cancelled the order within the stipulated time frame to enjoy a free trial but only paid for the shipping fees. They responded positively with my cancelled order but offered me another 50% discount package for a continuous supply of 3 months which I have not taken up. I have been using the trial package and found them surprisingly quite effective as their advert claim. Am now considering if I should take up further on their half price offer.....

Mummy Chan said...

Thanks so much for sharing your positive experience KT, maybe that will make many feel at ease since the things I mentioned here about them, are pretty negative, but that's really just what I read, not what I experienced, and indeed their results look promising from the pictures they shared, so for those who are willing to invest on products, I believe there's nothing wrong to try out anyway as long as they are fully aware of what to expect =)

SA said...

Hi KT..is it possible for you to describe the packaging of glow cream which you received..the colour of the container??

Thanks for all the help, always good to read up about a product before handing over all your details. I will think about it carefully now before I do!

You are right. I just called and to cancel the membership and she kept trying to get me to do it more with reduced pricing all the way down to 45% of the price. Listen carefully when you call and answer carefully or you will still be a member and therefore charged monthly. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I wish I had seen your post. I ordered a free sample just had to pay for the shipping.....I received the "free sample" and paid $6.90 for shipping. A few days later I check my bank account and saw that they charged my card $78 for "recurring debit card". THEY STOLE MY MONEY BESIDES BEING SOME LIARS!!! BEWARE OF THIS SCAM!!!!!!!

Joanie said...

who can I contact to cancel it? they dont supply any contact info. That should have been my first red light. Can anyone supply me with a phone number? thanks

Unknown said...

beware. keep away from these theives. they practically outright steal from your credit card. i sign up for free sample suppose to pay only shipping fee of 6.99 but was charged full amount of 78. not only that , the next month their is another charge of 78 even though i did not make another purchase . they did send the samle but i am not at all pleased. cannot contact them , cannot email them. in d end i have to cancel my credit card. BEWARE you ladies out there.

Hi , where i can buy bloss radience in jordn .

Unknown said...

How can I get the contact of the company?I felt in the same shit too

Unknown said...

I ordered the free sample via my PayPal debit card. I finally received the sample today, but began to worry after reading multiple complaints of recurring fees. I immediately contacted PayPal to try and block any further charges before they recur. I hope it works.

Mary Desira said...

It is happening to me I just paid for the free sample shipping and they are constantly debiting my card every month. I don't know how to stop them this is a scam. Bliss radiance.

Some creams may help rejuvenate aging skins to some extent, but to achieve dramatic results, cosmetic surgery is the option, just like the celebrities like to have theirs done. The celebrity lady aged 61 looking like 35? Dr. Oz should know that better ; )

Unknown said...

i was so lucky to read your post before i take out my credit card. thank you so much.

Mummy Chan said...

I am really glad to hear that my dear reader! Thanks for popping by too =)

The only way to stop the charges is to freeze your credit card. Do it asap!
