Chantel St. Claire
1 based on
Chantel St. Claire is an anti-ageing product that promises you visibly younger looking skin within a few days of application. It claims to contain effective and scientific ingredients that act on your skin effectively and keep it hydrated at all times.
The product’s website makes some tall claims like providing better results than Botox and being the best injection-free anti-ageing solution in the market today.
But don’t fall for for it by reading all those claims until you have analysed fully well about it. Read on to know more about the product’s cost, components and other features.
What does Chantel St. Claire claim?
Chantel St. Claire claims to contain scientifically tested and powerful ingredients that penetrate deep into the layers of your skin. Its site claims that the serum contains Biofil Hydrospheres that help your skin to stay moisturised and hydrated at all times. If you use this cream regularly, you are entitled to the following benefits:
Considerable improvement in the reduction of wrinkles
Removal of elements causing repair, sagginess, dullness and discoloration
Overall improvement in the tone, texture, brightness, firmness, hydration and immunity levels of the skin
Quick restoration of softness, suppleness and youthful looks
Yes, these claims are nice to hear; however, never trust them blindly without collecting facts. Always ensure that you are investing your hard-earned money in the right and authentic product. This will keep your skin safe and secure from damages.
What does Chantel St. Claire contain?
When you visit the product’s site, you will notice that the makers have mentioned about the serum using active and scientifically tested ingredients. The only information that you get about the contents is that they use a Proprietary Biofil Dermal Lifting Hydrospheres with QuSome delivery system to do their job. However, this information contains too many jargons. It doesn’t mention anything directly about the cream’s contents, either. Therefore, we are doubtful about the authenticity of this product.
Pricing of Chantel St. Claire
Chantel St. Claire is available on a 14-day free evaluation offer. To try this, you need to pay $3.95 towards shipping charges. If you aren’t happy with the product, ensure that you cancel your subscription within the trial period. If not, your credit card will be charged $99.95 at the end of the 14th day towards full usage charges. That’s not all! You are part of the serum’s auto-shipment policy as well. So, you will continue to get shipments of this serum at your home, once in every 30 days for $99.95. At any time during your subscription, you can call (437) 800-1075 or email email@example.com and cancel your sign-in.
Chantel St. Claire is one of those many products that boast about their features but justify none of them. It suffers from three main disadvantages. They are – a) not revealing the contents openly, b) exorbitant pricing and c) tricky auto-shipment rules. Therefore, it would be a huge financial burden on you if you subscribe to this product. We suggest you look for better, cost-effective and authentic products for the benefit of your skin.
“When I realized the product was false (perhaps it's from a vat of cheap hand lotion) and exorbitantly priced, I cancelled but they continued to send another order so I cancelled again. I was assured they had cancelled and would put $50 back on my card ($50 is less than half the price) but they then sent another two orders. My credit card company got involved and will be doing an investigation if this company. Beware: They use various names such as GlowingMeNow and Ultimate Pure Skin. No stars or actual prosecution for this fraudulent company is more appropriate.”
“very bad product very bad people. I have asked to be able to return the product because it is impossible to use. it smells like horse urine, they will not give me an address or refund. Very expensive what they don't tell you with your free trial 14 days is not enough for any cream to show result. Liars , cheaters. I am contacting the Texas police and a chemist to look into their operation. I have sent them emails good luck getting an reply back.”
“If I could give zero stars, I would! This is a total scam- there is no contract, no invoices but if you agree to a trial, they will continue to bill your credit card using different names. Do not get caught in this web of lies and fraud! unfortunately I did not read this blog before I clicked the button. I have told everyone I know about it and I will continue to protect everyone I ever meet. Awful!”
“$250 down the toilet! I didn't cancel the product in time and now I'm stuck with this stuff ...came up on my credit card statement as "Sparkling Skin Today" and Healthy Moist...run away from ever ordering Chantel St. Claire!!! p.s. I got weird emails from Canada posts just prior to delivery of product each time. Be aware.”
“My story is the same as everyone here.. SCAM! Cost me $15 to return the product after spending an hour on the phone . The agent could hardly speak English & was extremely rude. - only after shouting at him would he tell me how to return the cream. My Visa also has a charge for a delivery I didn't receive!”
“This is such a scam! I can't believe I fell for this!!! Please be aware there was no mention of a monthly subscription or even about cancelling and. No refund! I will definitely not trust any offers online again. This product does not even work!”
“This is a scam. I was contacted to receive a "Free" trial of the Chantel St. Calire cream and only to pay shipping. I was also told, that I could cancel any subscriptions within a 14 day period without obligation. Unfortunately, when I contacted the company to cancel any future orders I was given the following options: "For customers that keep being subscribed for our service after the trial period, that is the actual cost. However, as I can see you’re having second thoughts regarding the product, I will be more than glad to try and assist you with a couple of offers: 1.) I can cancel your subscription and stop any future recurring payments as requested. In order to do that you will just have to return the remaining supply-the bottle, under your expense. Upon your approval, I will put the future charges on hold,I will provide to you the return address (so we can identify the package as coming from you), so you can head with it to the post office. Once we receive your bottle, we will fully cancel the whole subscription. 2.) I can make an exception and apply one of our discounts, reserved for returning customers, so you can keep the bottle for an only one-time charge of $39.95 each (about 50% off the regular price). This way, you can keep the bottle for a unique price, and I will save you from the need to deal with the returning process and cost (which can be $6-$12 depending on the post office). Of course that on top of that, as requested, I will cancel your subscription and stop any future shipments so you can rest assured that no more future charges will be taken after that. If you are pleased with the results you will be able to come back anytime and I will stand by my monthly rates offers as well. This way you can try these premium products with minimal commitment." This is not a free trial if I have to pay shipping and the return any unused portions at my expenses or they will bill my credit card. Horrible- I advise that you hang up the phone when they call you!!!”
“I don't even want to rate this company because they are nothing but scam artists they say free trial of 4.99 and month later they take 136 dollars out of my account for a bottle of cream I never received DO NOT BUY THIS YOU ARE BEING SCAMED”
“ZERO RATING! FRAUDULANT COMPANY. FRAUD AND SCAM A "free trial" add appeared on my phone. I initially put my name and address to get this "free trial" anti-aging product. When I saw it was not free because they wanted my credit card for the shipping charges, I cancelled and did not proceed. Then a few hours later, I received a phone call asking me to proceed as it was completely free. I told them I was not interested. I kept getting these phone calls until I finally said, ok. I will pay for the shipping, then on the phone he said he will ship out a skin cream and an eye cream that goes together and even though they will be shipped in the same box, he will bill two separate shipping charges. I said , you are only authorized a one time charge and my card should not be kept in your company data base and you are not allowed to used my card again. NO AUTHORIZATION is give to charge my card more than once. NEXT THING I KNOW, MY CARD WAS CHARGED $99.95 AND $38.71 EXACTLY ON THE 15TH DAY. I called customer service and they said that I signed up for a subscription and that they are following their policy that it must be cancelled before the 14 day period as stated on their web site that they said I read. I NEVER READ ANYTHING ON THE WEB BECAUSE THEIR COMPANY CALLED ME ON THE PHONE. I WAS NEVER TOLD OF ANY TYPE OF 14 DAY TRIAL OR SUBCRIPTION OTHERWISE, I WOULD NOT HAVE GIVEN THEM MY CARD. THIS COMPANY IS A TOTAL SCAM AND WE SHOULD ALL DO SOMETHING TO SHUT THEM DOWN AND DO A CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT BECAUSE THIS COMPANY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO DO BUSINESS AND SHOULD LEGALLY BE PROSECUTED FOR BREAKING THE LAWS OF PROPER BUSINESS. THEY ARE STEALING FROM PEOPLE ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND ARE TAKING MONEY BY CHARGING PEOPLE'S CREDIT CARDS AT LEAST MINIMUM OF $200 BECAUSE IT TAKES ABOUT TWO MONTHS TO STRAIGTHEN THE MESS . THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS NEVER OPEN AND ONCE YOU DO GET THEM, YOU WILL BE SENT TO A CALL CENTER SOMEWHERE IN THE PHILIPPINES OR IN INDIA AND THESE PEOPLE ARE GIVEN AMERICAN NAMES LIKE JOHN WAYNE WHEN YOU KNOW THEY ARE NOT AMERICANS BASED ON THEIR THICK FILIPINO ACCENT. The calls are definitely going to some call center outside the US but they will claim that the call is going to their office in Greenvilled, South Carolina. THEY WILL NOT GIVE YOU A FULL REFUND REGARDLESS SO WE NEED TO SHUT THEM DOWN.”
“This company scammed my elderly mother out of HUNDREDS of dollars by not being transparent about their auto-reorder policy and exorbitant shipping charges. I even found where they DOUBLE CHARGED her for shipping and she NEVER received the product. They refunded everything after our family lawyer contacted them with the promise of legal proceedings. How disgusting and shameful of this company. They should be openly exposed and bankrupted by refunding everyone's money!!!”
“They will not refund your money, even if you return their product. This to me is wrong. Their product doesn't work. Beware they say they give you 14 days to try product for free and if you don't cancel within that time limit they take money from your account and won't return it in full, only half if you press them. SCAM!!!”
“Agree with everyone's comments, It is a total scam. Nowhere in the paper they send you did it say you had to cancel within 14 days. I was charged over $125.00 for a product I don't like and don't want. They refused to send me a refund. A very disreputable company!”
“I totally agree with all above comments!!! I applied for my free sample , unaware that I was signing up for repeated deliveries and that this was a US company. I didn't read the terms & conditions thouroughly. I got the same B.S. about the 14 day limit. I am in the process of writing a written complaint to the Better Business Bureau and have called the RCMP. They referred me to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (1-888-495-8501 or www.antifraudcentre.ca). It is preferable to file a complaint on their web site. I went back on Chantel St Claire web site and they are now offering the free sample Under a company called Hydroluxe from Downsview Ontario?!?! By the way, a friend of mine told me about a similar company called Nuvella so please be wary of that company as well. They operate in very similar fashion to Chantel. These fraudulent companies are probably all connected to one another. PLEASE DO NOT DEAL WITH ANY SKIN CARE COMPANY OFFERING FREE SAMPLES AND NOT OPENLY DISCLOSING DETAILS ABOUT A TIME LIMIT, PRICE AND CONTINUOUS DELIVERIES!!! PERHAPS IF MANY OF US MAKE A FORMAL COMPLAINT TO THE PROPER AUTHORITIES, WE CAN PUT A DAMPER ON THESE TYPES OF DEALINGS.”
“First of all. You can't try it long enough to know if it works before you get another box of it. And get a ridiculous bill for it. Continuous shipping. Will not refund when not satisfied with product. Scam....do not bother.”
“I just got suckered. Just got my credit card bill with over 250$ in charges!! I called card company, they said call this company (st Claire) the rep barely spoke English, talked to me like I was stupid. Said I ordered mid May..had 14 days to cancel & I was auto subscribed to the monthly charge!!! I never authorized that!!! Nor did I see terms & conditions. All I saw was FREE trial! They offered to refund me 80$ total on my charges. We will see....... pretty freaken EXPENSIVE "free trial" if you ask me. DONT order from them!!! Total scam. It took 3 weeks to get product & NO paperwork explaining their twisted policy. SO MAD!!”
“They are crooks. Signing up for the trial automatically sign you up as a monthly subscriber. No where on the site is this clearly stated. If you cancel then you are charged $39 US for each of the 2 products plus shipping and handling. (About $55 Can each).!!! Since many prospective buyers are seniors this is especially vicious and amounts to stealing. Everyone should report them and seek to have the authorities shut them down. The product is not effective, possibly harmful and Dr. Oz should recant his support and expose them.”
“These people say it is a free trial and you pay shipping and handling.they give you 14 days to cancel,but the number they give you hangs up on you so I tried through the mailing address and googled it and that's not even related to the company. Then by credit card was charged 198.89 dollars I lost my mind, thank God for the woman I spoke with she got a hold of the company so I will get some money back and when they receive the FREE trial I am supposed to get the rest, but this man actually tried to give me the same number that I had to call and I said wait a minute this is the number that keeps hanging up on me and the credit card lady said I'll give you the number I used to contact them so now I have the real number and it is 702-605-6249 just in case anyone else needs it.”
“This is a scam. I called to cancel after receiving "free" sample, because they had charged my act $99.95 and they wouldn't let me speak to a supervisor. This is not right what they do to people and get away with it. Do not buy anything from them it's a terrible product as well.”
“Beware, do not order this free sample product. Before you even get it they are charging your credit card for $100's for the next shipment. They claim your contract stated you have 14 days to try it but start charging 14 days after you e ordered it even if you haven't received the free trial. I called to cancel as soon as I got the second bottle but they had already charged my credit card for 2 more months. I had to cancel my credit card & have Visa investigating them for fraud.”
“I placed an order for a trial product. Next i know my credit card is charged with a product I never recived. I phoned the company and they don't take any responsibility and I should have read the fine print. I am now having to go through my credit card dispute department to get my refund. Complete scam! Don't sign up.”
“Zero Stars. I got my credit card company involved for the samd reasons as everyone else here. We did a three way call with thr company and the rep was very rude and argumentative. They finally agreed to give me a full refund of all charges, but it took an hour to get there. We'll see if they actually refund me.... DO NOT BUY. Product burned my skin after two days of use anyways. They prey on people who may not always follow their credit card bills and are full of bullshit excuses when you dispute the charges. WORST EVER.”
“This product hurt when I put it on. I live in Colorado and the climate is very dry. My skin is very dry and this cream dries like glue. I do not have many wrinkles and thought I was getting something that would prevent wrinkles not shrink your face. The worst part is the person on the phone did not inform me this was being shipped from Canada, which will take two to three weeks to return at a cost of $10. There is no way to return it by the no charge date. I made a big mistake purchasing this product.”
“This company is a sham and a scam! The free trial is not FREE! I was charged $262.78 + spent for a product I don't want. The product doesn't even feel nice on your face. They get you on the 14 day trial period. If you don't cancel within that time they charge you the full price. I'd put the order in on my mobile and was unable to read the fine print. They they called while I was in a meeting to confirm and just kept pressing. Just said yes to get off the call. DO NOT DEAL WITH THESE PEOPLE, they are a waste of TIME AND YOUR MONEY!!!”
“BIG SCAM !!!!!!!! they say free S&H I spoked to costumer support they told me no obligation to purchase if you not satisfied, I call to cancel they charge me $38.& cents call back to discuss they put you on hold and hangup. (VERY SHADY) _ Evelyn you deserve ZERO star.”
“Horrible experience!! I cancelled the day it arrived in the mail and was told that I had to pay 38.71 for each bottle and send it back at my expense. They charged my account and refused to refund. I had to cancel my debit card and open a claim with my bank. The product is useless. I have better results with soap and baking soda. The customer service is in India and hard to understand.”
“Sent me a trial after the 14 days. Then sent me 2 packages at the same time so they could charge me twice. They wont take the packages back. What a scam. Why doesn't Visa cut these guys off? and the product sucks! dries white on your face.”
“Cannot believe I fell for this! GAH. Have just cancelled when I got a surprise second delivery, and only now realized I also got charged for the "free trial". This is completely bogus and I'll report to the BBB as well. Wish there was more recourse for these scammers and cheaters. Well I guess there is -- it's called karma.”
“Chantel St. Claire is a total scam! They suck you in with a Trial Offer, then automatically bill you monthly without your knowledge. At $50. per ounce its a total scam!!! Somebody needs to get locked up.”
“Scam YES!! Chantel St. Calre and Abella Mayfair appear to be the same fraudulent company. I have asked repeated for a return address to sent the products back, and it appears to all go back to the Toronto address PO Box 500 North York (Toronto) Ontario Canada - M3J0J8 I lodge a complaint to the company Chantel St Claire about unauthorized debit and the guy on the phone kept stating that there was no refunds on the trial. Well this is not the trail. They are scammers and frauds. They steal your money with a less that desirable product..”
“As for most of us , we didn't read the terms and conditions.. "How Does the Trial Offer Work? A trial offer is a way to get the full 30 day supply of Instant Wrinkle Control where you pay only $3.95 upfront and enroll in our monthly subscription. After the trial expires (14 days), you are charged $99.95 for that initial bottle. Every 30 days thereafter, you will be charged $99.95 and shipped another bottle. A trial is not a free sample. The price of $99.95 that you pay is for the full 30 day supply bottle that was shipped out. The Ultimate Moisturizer trial is only $4.95 upfront and just like the Instant Wrinkle Control trial. You will be enrolled in our monthly subscription. After the trial expires (14 days), you are charged $89.95 for that initial bottle. Every 30 days thereafter, you will be charged $89.95 and shipped another bottle. A trial is not a free sample. The price of $89.95 that you pay is for the full 30 day supply bottle that was shipped out. When you order a trial, you have to check that you agree to our terms and conditions and enroll in our monthly shipment program. Applicable sales tax may be applied to all charges." Nowhere does this tell you to cancel before the 14 days or you will be charged.. Call the number on your credit card statement, cancel it and politely ask for a partial refund. I got half my money back.. To be safe, call your credit card company and ask them to call the number, then transfer the call back to you. They will record the conversation, verifying your cancellation. Bottom line is ALWAYS read the terms and conditions before clicking... ." I have read and understand ..." This is a binding legal document, even the credit card companies acknowledge this... PS..Even porn sites are way more transparent on their billing terms and conditions....”
“This company gets your credit card number and continues to send you product you DO NOT want. They are an affiliate of LWL Facecarewellness. They send the same product with different packaging. I am receiving product I don't want because it doesn't work and they continue to send me product and charge on my credit card. Both companies are scamming the public. DON'T BUY ANY OF THEIR SPIEL OR THEIR PRODUCTS.”
“I agree with all that has been said. Not free and I never received product until after 14 day trial, Then I get another shipment and I phone to say where do I send this back and told that I have been billed for my free stuff as well as the new shipment. There was never a price mentioned or a website a or anything that said more would come and that after 14 days I would be billed this stupid amount of money,, in us funds to boot. After a very lengthly conversation they agreed to take back the 2nd shipment of the product if I paid the postal on it and provided them with a tracking number. They refused to do anything about the first batch which by the way I never even got to try do to life happening. I said it said only pay for shipping, limited product at this deal, because they want you to try the product. I have since read that they offer a 60 day from receipt refund so will be calling once again to send the whole bath of junk back...Can you say FRAUD. False advertising. Polive or better business or both should be involved.”
“Their offer for a free sample is a scam!!! You will automatically be signed up for monthly charges of $124 CA. And the worst part is the product does NOT work!! Do not order this product!!!! Buyer beware!!!!”
“Only left one star b/c it's a mandatory field, otherwise would not have left any. Huge scam. Ordered "free" trial, fully expecting to be charged shipping and handling-waited almost two weeks for product to arrive ...cancelled via email AND phone - was still charged over $250. DO NOT purchase.....go to local beauty store to purchase better products for much less. Never again!”
“Horrible company. Horrible customer service. You pay for a free trial and before you even receive the product they charge you the full price of the product "that was supposedly a free trial". I am complaining to the BBB about this company. Insane SCAM!”
“Scam .charged over 200 $. Called and canceled. Did not get my money back from them. My credit cards company partialy return my money. Ask my bank to cancel my credit card and send me another one. Just in case if they want to charge me again for this horrible product!”
“They stole 138 canadian frm my acct..dont buy..its a scam most definately n their product doesnt work its bogus..if u put wrinkle cream on chck ur face b4 u leave ur house othrwise u will scare everyone”
“This is a scam, please do not trust this people.They are robbers and fraudsters!!Poor customer service!!The representative yelled at me that I did not read the fine print.He was very rude for the money they have charged to my credit card.”
“I purchased a "trial" product for my wife and only paid shipping fees, then like everyone else, I started to receive additional shipments and found they were billing my VISA $190.00 (U.S). When I complained they cancelled my order (we'll see) but refused to give me a refund and told me to see the fine print in the terms and conditions. I complained to VISA and they have this company on a "watch list" but cannot refund me my money. Not VISA's fault. I should have read the fine print. The worst part is I thought I was buying from a reputable company because they promoted themselves as the people who turned down the largest offer ever from the show Shark Tank AND promoted that Warren Buffet himself had invested in their company. I hope the producers of Shark Tank hear of the many complaints about these scam artists and do something about it. I have reported the company to the RCMP Fraud division and would encourage everyone who has been ripped off by these low-lifes to do the same. Maybe if enough people file complaints with the RCMP they can press charges against these assholes.”
“Don't buy or trust this company. I cancelled within 1 week & the automated system tells you that you will be billed $38.71 which is essentially is a partial charge for what is supposed to be a FREE TRIAL! This is a scam, don't do. Honest ppl get caught in these traps, trust me, it's not worth it! Stick with authentic products that you know of. There's always a catch with this crap. Scam to get your hard earned money. You don't mind helping legit companies getting started but honesty comes first.”
“Veuillez me désinscrire de votre liste. Je n'ai lu aucun avis dans votre offre, comme quoi en essayant votre produit je m'engageais à en recevoir à tous les mois et surtout que vous me chargeriez un montant de 99$ comme je viens de l'apprendre en lisant un commentaire sur internet. C'est très malhonnête de votre part!!! Ici, au Québec nous avons une loi qui protège le consommateur et je ne manquerai pas d'y avoir recours si vous osez déduire un montant de ma carte. Vous êtes avertis, enlevez-moi de votre arnaque!!! Nicole, firstname.lastname@example.org (Je garde cet avertissement dans mes dossiers.)”
“This company should be ashamed of itself. First off on the Facebook links you follow it states a free sample., just pay shipping. It is in fact not anywhere near free. It takes 10-14 days to ship to you, and you are given a 14 day free trial period before they charge you full price for the products. So you might get to try them for a 3 day period once you receive it. Then your credit card is charged $134 bucks and an hour later $121 bucks. They bill you on a weekend when they are not open so you can call and ask why the hell your card was charged I the first place. The products are awful and chalky. You can not wear make up over them, they are horrible. The serum is a copy cat of simply ageless (which you can wear under make up and last longer) and the moisturizer is like dollar store hand cream. Terrible products, terrible marketing”
“After seeing the product advertised, I called to place an order for a "free sample" and was told that there would only be a small shipping charge. To cut to the chase, my credit card was charged twice, $99.95 and $89.95. The 800 number took me to an agent in India that barely spoke English but told me that I did not read the fine print. There was no fine print. I ordered it over the phone. Finally had to get my credit card company involved. Took over two hours. What a waste of time...zero stars”
“My mother ordered this online then cancelled it over the phone as soon as they said they wouldn't be able to charge the product on her credit card. The product was still sent and she was charged an extra $140.83 -- money they refuse to give back. PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM.”
“This junk doesn't deserve a single start. conning and deceiving bunch of scum bags. Trick you into believing you get a free trial. charge your credit card exuberent amounts of money. Please do not order from them. SCAMMERS”
“Don't get sucked in!!! I can't emphasize this enough, and I'll be letting everyone I know this until I get a refund. They are misleading consumers and it will cost you hundreds of dollars. Very shady dealings.”
“Paid for trial Next thing I know i was charged over $100. US Received no paperwork saying I needed to cancel or even how to cancel Never even got the product I paid for which I do not want as I hated the feel of the serim on my face”
“TOTAL SCAM!! When you buy it, no where does it say the product is over $100 for the 15ml bottle. They say it's a free trial (just pay S&H) but unless you purposely read the terms and conditions, it does not tell you that you only have 2 weeks from ordering to cancel or you'll be charged an exorbant amount for such a teeny tiny bottle.”
