Skin Balance Advanced Anti-Wrinkle Cream has come out on the market with a bid to bring relief to all the women out there who are having trouble maintaining their young and firm skin.

If slogans on the product are to be believed, then this is the truth behind celebrities and their young looking skin.

It has come into the market to share this secret with the other women folk so that they can use this formula to keep their skin youthful and glowing.

How does Skin Balance help?

Since the product claims to prevent ageing, it promises to do so by a three-way process.  First and foremost it reduces the dryness in the skin by 95%, as it increases the production of collagen.  Second, it attacks the main reason that is, i.e., the under eye circles.  This darkens the entire complexion and makes the face look dull and tired.  This product sets for itself the task of reducing this to almost 73%.  Over and above Skin Balance also works on reducing the frown lines to the extent of 85%

What does Skin Balance contains

Here’s the flip to this product.  While it has so many claims, there is not much proof to substantiate the claims that it is making.  It is only a simple concept that the users who want to make use of this product would like to know what goes into the making of this.  With no mention of this, it makes the purchase of this product very difficult.  Added to that is the fact that there is no way buyers can check if there are allergic ingredients added to this product.

Hidden truth behind the costs of Skin Balance

While Skin Balance comes with a trial offer, that is propagated to be free, the truth of the matter is that it is not free.  There is a 14-day trial offer, and at the end of the trial, the user has to pay up $147.44.  This makes it a no- free offer and there is more to come because, once the free trial period is over, and the user has not remembered to cancel, the product is auto shipped and payments are continued to be debited.  This makes us wonder if this product is just another way of minting money from the user or if it has some goodness in it.

The result

Without a thorough knowledge of the ingredients of the product, there is no way this product Skin Balance is going to be recommended.  We need to know one way or the other if this product is any good before recommending this to our users.  Since that info is lacking this product is a no. This combined with the fact that that there are no clear details on the payments that will be incurred, compel us to steer clear of this product.  However, if we have the need to look for a product like that, then it is best to look at similar ones.

Who to call

Having read this, to cancel the free trial offer of Skin Balance, you can call into 855-303-3110 or mail [email protected]

Just got off the phone with a very frustrating call with customer service at Skin Balance. Tried their free trial and ended up with blisters on my face. i had no idea that I was just going to be automatically charged almost $400 for this product that I now have to just throw in the garbage. They had absolutely refused to give me my money back and would not even let me speak to a supervisor. I immediately cancelled with them but I'm still stuck with a $400 charge on my credit card. What a poor way to do business!!!!

TOTAL SCAM!!!

Skin Balance and Advanced Skin...I am absolutely FURIOUS for getting scammed by this free trial offer!!! Just like Janna-Marie and everyone else I was lead to believe these 2 skin care items were 'FREE TRIALS' but they weren't. I did agree to pay the shipping and handling which turned out to be in US funds which was not indicated and I didn't question because this so called freebie was a thank you for answering survey questions for my Canadian cable company. Now today I get a nice surprise of 2 charges totalling almost $400 that they won't refund and I can't have reversed because apparently I agreed to terms and conditions that I never received or confirmed.

Real scam . The bank credit co know about. this scam and yet do nothing about it. My credit card was charged over $300.00 .Bank of Nova Scotia credit card and they even let my account go over limit for these charges and had the nerve to charge me over limit charge. I had to close my account .

THIS IS A HUGE SCAM! There is NO FREE TRIAL. You do not see anything about a 14 day trial period and how much they are going to charge if you do not call in 14 days!!!!!!!!!!! I keep calling them demanding my money back . Three supervisors have called me back and the last one who called me back today hang up on me!!!!! This company is shamefully profiting off nice Canadian citizens. I'm sorry I was one and you were one. Maybe we can do something?”

Didn't see their terms and conditions available when I imputed my cc information to pay for the SHIPPING charges. 15 days later, my cc was charged CA$400. Called the following day (after my cc company notified me of the unusual charges) and they wouldn't reverse the charges. 10 days of constant calling and sending emails, they have agreed to provide me with a full refund. My bank was useless...only notified me of the charges AFTER they had already been approved. Threaten the company you'll contact a CUSTOMER PROTECTION AGENCY and/or BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU. That seemed to have worked for me. And if it doesn't work the first time, call back and talk to another person. Good luck and warn all your friends and family to stay away from this company and similar ones (They constantly change names but the business/scamming concept is the same)

Be sure to cancel your order right away so you don't get charged. Luckily I cancelled in time after seeing four charges oppose to two for the initial "fourteen" day trial. Huge scam and liars.

SCAM Offer Designed to Steal Your Money

★☆☆☆☆

I wish the rating system had a negative rating because that is what this company deserves. It is a scammy product from a scammy company, with an offer that is engineered from the start to extract as much money from you as possible with misleading advertising. The offer sounds like you're getting a trial sample (because that's what the offer states) but, unless you click the Terms and Conditions link and read through it, you don't understand that they will charge you for your "trial" if you don't cancel within 14 days. PLUS they will automatically ship out more product to you every 30 days until you call them to cancel. There is no explanation near the order button to warn you this is what will happen once you click. You see the small shipping and handling fee for the "trial", enter your credit card information and click the order button. Oh, didn't notice the Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy links above the order button before clicking? Too bad. We got your money. And likely more if you don't check your credit card statement in the next 14 days to see the initial surprise charge. BTW the 14 day trial period starts when you PLACE the order, not when you receive it. Heck they don't even say they'll ship it to you for 1-2 business days and then it'll take 3-4 business days to get to you. If you're lucky you'll receive the product with a few days to try it before your 14 days are up. No legitimate company can expect you to notice results from trying their anti-aging product in a few days. But that's even if you understand what kind of hoax you got duped with from the start. Clearly this company is counting on you not reading the fine print on their Terms and Conditions page so they'll get a minimum $391 from you after the 14 days is up. They are also counting on you not realizing that you've entered a continuity program where they'll ship you more 30 days later and charge you another $391. In 45 days they will charge you around $800 before the average person even realizes they were scammed. How many "customers" do you need with this misleading sales offer to make good money? 1000 people a month would make them $800,000 in sales. Is it a wonder why they continue to do this regardless of how many angry customers and complaints they get? And they aren't the only company doing this. A quick search under "Skin Balance" shows more companies using the exact same sales tactics selling anti aging products with different names. CTV News in Canada did a news story on a company called Abella Mayfair with the exact same sales offer as Skin Balance. The two ladies in the news story were lucky enough to get their money back but they had a news station doing the investigation for them. This shameful company has an F rating with the BBB and at the time of this post over 90 complaints. Here's the link to the CTV news story: http://bc.ctvnews.ca/consumer-charged-432-for-free-trial-of-skin-cream-1.3239027

Do not order this sh*&^%$%^& (OUTRIGHT Ripoffff!) I received my order, it is ABSOLUTLY no better than anything you can buy for under $10.00 PLUS before the trial period ended had $400.00 hundred dollars taken off my credit card! I called the 855-665-5733 number given on the receipt (manned from a third world county) was treated like sh%$#& told there was nothing could be done. if you have been scammed by the same people be sure to insist on an email cancellation or they will keep billing your card, years supply would cost you $4800 hundred dollars & who the hell knows what's in it?? STAY AWAY FROM THESE BASTARDS Casey

Be Careful guys, This is a trap. In the beginning they ask you to pay $4 which later on will be included shipping taxes from the us. After 14 days they charge you for amount of $191. They are very rude, responsible, and thieves. Do not buy from this website at all, or you will be very upset. They catch your credit card and do whatever they want. Awful company, the most ridiculous I have ever seen. NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Definitely a scam!

As others have mentioned this is the worst kind of negative billing scam. And the product I received turned rancid within a few weeks. I am stuck with a huge bill, no usable product, and no interest in fixing this problem from the company.

We don't do business this way in Canada. We try a product. If we like it, we will order more, happily. Do you know of any business that gives you a trial offer, then withdraws $340 because you were too stupid to read the fine print, that by the way, was not visible to the human eye. This company is shamefully profiting off nice Canadian citizens. I'm sorry I was one and you were one. Maybe we can do something?

Do not be too hard on yourself, we are all vulnerable at times. Wanted to share my online experience.. SCAM ALERT! Get real..this is all hype and another huge ripoff Lost respect for Dr. Oz its just entertainment! Every month it is a new celebrity apparently endorsing this or like products. With one and the same ingredients and claims. FREE TRIAL! DO NOT GET SUCKED IN.. These products are AUTO shipped! Not only are they EXUBERANTLY priced. The charges are not consistent. You cannot reach them by email. When you call to cancel, it sounds like a private number, not a professional business. They will tell you, you will receive a confirmation of cancellation email. YOU DO NOT GET ONE! After cancelling and returning this product, They have yet to post a refund.! Also, FYI.. This product comes from a P.O. BOX Save your money!!!! Consumer beware!!!!.

Between the Anti-wrinkle serum and the skin Balance moisturizer, I am out $400 on the "free" trial offer. DO NOT ORDER!!! You have 14 days to return it.....I did not even receive it for 18 days. Was charged $8 shipping to which I agreed but if you don't return within the 14 days, WHAM...a whopping $400 and the product DOES NOT WORK. Use a drug store product for $10 and it's as good...I will use EVERY social media available to me to denounce this product. RIP OFF!!!!!!!

Zero stars for this product! Sadly I too am embarrassed I got suckered by these people. BMO employee was awesome trying to get them to give me a refund as I was only one day late cancelling but to no avail. I haven't even received the second order and don't want it! I would never have asked for the free trial if I had known how evil these people are. Agree with those above. Huge Scam! An almost $400 CDN very expensive lesson I can't afford!

lesson Learned From Skin Balance Scam!

I am almost embarrassed to admit I fell for this scam. I tried to hit the quit button and realized it didn't take. All these reviews are true. I called their customer service to return the product, which you should only call to cancel not to reason because they would not hear of it. I demanded to speak to a supervisor who called me a day later with the same "too bad, so sad, we are not going to help you" then hung up on me! If I'm not mistaken, The Shark Tank people supported them. Shame on you!!! Only positive thing about this is the lesson is that I really didn't need this cream, which didn't even work, and I will avoid the "get this free product" gimmick. Nothing is for free, but we feel we need something to make us look better. Our wrinkles tell stories and we should be proud of that. Should have paid more attention to the Brady Bunch episode where I first heard the phrase "caveat emptor", "Buyer beware!"

I agree wholeheartedly with previous reviews that this product is marketed in a very sneaky way and probably makes most of its profit from marks like me who sent for a "free sample" and then were charged a ridiculous price . There was no warning in the initial email that confirmed a small shipping charge. Once they have your credit card information you are in trouble. It's fraudulent but subtle enough to be legal. There is nothing special about this product. Do not buy it!

After receiving this product, I emailed to ask where it could be purchased. Of coarse my email was never answered. That should have told me something right then. I thought I was receiving a free sample of a product endorsed by Arlene Dickinson of Dragon's Den. I did not consent to any subscription but they are saying I must have ticked a box consenting to their terms. I "never" saw any such box. Be prepared to pay near $400, postage and product, converted to Canadian from US. I was totally disgusted with the whole thing.

I, too, fell for the "free" sample to try for 14 days (from the date I ordered) and now have nearly $400 CAN on my credit card and was enrolled in a monthly program. When I contacted billing, they would not reverse the charges, but agreed to cancel my enrolment. What a scam!! Stay FAR away!

To Whom it May Concern, re Skin Balance. I had phoned about my bank card being used without my permission to purchase your product. Skin Balance. I am still just soo very upset as now I am totally unable to pay my monthly bills because of what happened. You has told me you would give me back $100.00 U.S. to be deposited into my bank and you would cancel any other future products for me. I sincerely want to thank you and hopefully I will see the other money reinbursed in my account in or about 3 to 4 days as of yesterday May 3oth. Please I sure hope you stand behind your word to do this for me. I sure did learn my lesson to never lend out my bank card ever again, family or not! I could not believe my niece would ever do this to me. So again thank you so very much. Your kindness is very much appreciated. Sincerely Shirley Cummings

After receiving my so called FREE Sample of Skin Balance cream for S&H @$2.62, I too was very surprised around a month later to see a charge of $203.43 plus another charge of $1.39 for what I don't know around the same time I purchased the item. At no time did I ever see anything on the site stating that I would be enrolled in an automatic mailing after 14 days because if that were the case I would of quickly ended the order. I do not like doing automatic mailing. I didn't see anything about how much I would be charged for the product or any notice about a 14 day trial. I always read the fine print so I do not know how this managed to eluded me. Definately didn't see that at all. I know it was omitted and companies are doing unscrupulous things to grab the consumers money any way they can. When you hear complaints from customers not knowing prices and getting mailed items with no paperwork, it shows deceitful tactics being used. I will never order from this company ever. I tried to get refund no such luck. I will try talking to a manager. I'm truly disappointed as this is suppose to be a free trial. Buyer be aware.

I would not recommend this to anyone! I just looked at my credit card and was charged $386.97 with no way to get it back. This was charged one day after 14 day trial period. I called customer service this morning with no result, have to pay the bill. There was no information in package. I will not be ordering anything else on Internet.

Skin Balance is a skam!!

After ordering my free sample of skin balance I discovered a charge of $200,08 on my Canadian credit card. I had never heard of this skam before and yet my bank says she has had many calls and complaints. This is a pretty shoddy way of doing business. The sample came with no information or price list for further ordering. I feel embarrassed that I was naïve and feel taken advantage of. After that would I recommend their product or order again? Absolutely not! I cannot even bare to put it on my face.

This is a huge scam, there is NO free trial, and I didn't see anything about a 14 day trial period, no info came with packaging what so ever, no info about a 14 day trial; and as above you are charge without even realizing it. HUGE SCAM;
