Youth Renu Skin Overall rating: ★☆☆☆☆ 1 based on 58 reviews
Youth Renu Recovery Face Cream is an anti-ageing beauty product that claims to give you radiant and beautiful skin in the most natural way. It claims to use path-breaking scientific formulae and effective ingredients.
Anyone reading these claims on the sales page will be hungry to buy the product. But how true are these claims? How effective is Youth Renu for restoring the firmness on your skin? Read on to know more.
What does Youth Renu Skin claim?
Youth Renu Recovery Face Cream claims to deliver whole collagen molecules to your skin. This way, it promises to give you a natural rejuvenation by acting on the basic causes of ageing and eradicating them. The cream’s site promises the following benefits for its regular users:
Overall improvement in the tone, texture, firmness, brightness and tightness of the skin
Considerable improvement in the moisture content and hydration levels of the skin
Visible reduction in the appearance of dark circles, wrinkles, fine lines and other ageing spots
Overall improvement in the skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin
Eradicating all factors causing breakage, dullness, sagginess and discoloration of the skin
Now, let us look at the ingredients and cost structure to see if these claims are true and if this cream is authentic.
What does Youth Renu Skin contain?
Youth Renu mentions of using “active ingredients” and “peptide-rich serum” on its website. Apart from this, there is no mention of its ingredients anywhere on its site or package. With such limited information at our disposal, it is utterly impossible for us to confirm the authenticity of the cream. It could contain harsh chemicals as its contents, thereby making it unfit for people with sensitive skin. Since the product doesn’t declare its contents, it raises a lot of questions about its integrity and authenticity.
Pricing of Youth Renu Skin
Youth Renu Recovery Face Cream is available on a 14-day free trial offer. To subscribe and avail the same, you need to pay $4.97 towards shipping charges. If you are not happy with the cream, remember to cancel your subscription within these 14 days. If you don’t, at the end of the 14th day, your card will be charged $89.97 towards full usage charges.
That’s not all! As part of Youth Renu’s auto-shipment policy, you will continue to get the shipments once in every 30 days. You need to pay $89.97 every month for the same. Tired of these huge costs? Call 877-909-2783 and cancel your subscription at the earliest.
We would never recommend Youth Renu for our readers because of three main reasons. Firstly, it doesn’t spell out its ingredients openly. Secondly, it is priced close to a hundred dollars, which is quite steep, indeed. Thirdly, its terms related to cancellation and auto-shipment are confusing and tricky. We feel that you don’t have to take such a big risk and invest your hard-earned money in this cream.
“Rating - actually ZERO. My husband ordered a hair product online, (2300.00ZAR) which was charged to our credit card on 21 October 2017 (product never arrived). On that same day an amount of 149.95ZAR started being taken off our credit card monthly by YOUTHRENEWSKIN.COM. This amount has been taken off our credit card monthly for over a year now and we are still battling to get the stop order stopped by both the company and our bank!!!!!!!”
“My rating is really a big fat ZERO! I ordered the trial samples, and NEVER saw the 14 days cancellation part. When I noticed the charges to my account, I called and they told me I did not cancel in time, which I may not have because I never saw the 14 days notice. I called myself looking closely at the site for any such things as auto ship/bill and any cancel terms. Finally I found the 14 days information listed under their terms, pretty sneaky to hide this information. I cancelled with them for no more shipments/charges, but also changed my card account info so that I would not risk being hit with more charges from them. DO NOT ORDER,,,, Also, beware they use other names for this product but all the advertising is basically the same. One other that I know of is Luster.”
“I filled out a survey on what I thought was schwab.com site where I received the cream as a reward gift for my wife for the shipping costs of $5. Two weeks later I was billed~ $90 for nothing. They say I subscribed in the time of the survey. Scam.”
“NEVER, NEVER, NEVER order anything from this company!!!!! They use deceptive advertising and promise a free trial, and after 14 days, they charge your credit card the full amount for the product. This is a true case of Buyer Beware. It's a shame that companies have to rely on deceptive tactics to try to sell their products.”
“I am normally cautious about scams like this and looked but did not see evidence of an autoship agreement. Luckily I only received one shipment, but I didn't even use the sample. Of course they REFUSED to refund my $95. That's a lot of money!! If you hear of a class action suit, count me in!”
“SCAM!!! Treated rudely, credit card company helped me call, only received partial refund on the 89.00 charge!! They need to be reported to BBB!!!! I will always look for reviews before making any purchases.”
“If I could rate less than 1 star it would get that!! They charged me for shipping for a "free" sample and then hit my card for almost $200.00!!!!! WHAT A SCAM!!!!! They should not be allowed to do business PERIOD!!!!”
“If there is a class action please notify me or sign me in. I was also shamelessly scammed and right now my bank is disputing the $89 charge. I didn;'t even receive the $89 product, because I cancelled before they shipped.”
“Ordered the free trials and charged ONLY the $4.95 and 5.95 for shipping and handling. I have not even tried the products yet and have been charged TWICE for each product received. TWICE for $89.47 and TWICE for $94.57. All I have received so far is the trial I ordered. I spent approximately an hour on a three way conversation with my bank and three company reps before they could even locate my account and make SOME (NOT ALL) restitution. Do not order these products without reading ALL the fine print! RIPOFF!”
“I like the product, but am not pleased at the recurring expense that you 'surprised' me with two different months!!!!!!! And, they were not the same amount. I cancelled the product because of the high costs you slammed my credit card with. :(”
“Don't agree to the free trial it's a scam. It's the worse cream I have ever tried and they charged my card $89.00. When I called to cancel the lady was so rude to me and said all the information about the free trial and cancellation was on the website. It was not! I reviewed it completely and it wasn't there.”
“I don't want to give them any stars. Can we get a negative rating? They ran the most recent billing through my account at 1:00am. Seriously? That's just trying to be sneaky! Call them and you get a recording...email and you get an automatic email stating that they will be with you within 24-48 hours... with no actual return email. Had to cancel my credit card to stop the auto ship billings.”
“Don't waste your money. DO NOT BUY THIS! It is terrible product. They rip you off by charging you for product that does not work and misleading you about the "free" trial. They are just dough and water. The company, supervisor, and customer service is worst ever too. It was awful awful experience in my life.”
“First and last time I will EVER order anything like this. What a scam! My account was charged $98.00. And, of course, no returns and no refunds. Hopefully, they will be out of business before long and others will not be duped by this company. There is no rating low enough for this review. Shark Tank has lost all creditability.”
“Really don't know how the actual product works because I don't think even 30 days is enough time to see results for this type of product. Canceled my auto ship in what I considered within the time frame. The order was placed on the May 10th, it arrived on the 15th. I called and cancelled on the 24th, they billed me $89.97 on the 25th. Obviously they calculate the 14 days from the day you order and NOT from the day you received because they blamed me for not calling soon enough and refused to refund the complete amount. I told them I was going to call the BBB and that's when they said they will refund 35% of the price. The people from Shark Tank that recommend this product should be kicked in the butt!!! I'm watching my account to see if I actually get the 35% refund. This company sucks! Terms and conditions are BS!”
“Had the same experience as others. On the day I called to cancel (when I noticed a $90 charge to my credit card account) I was offered a 25% price reduction (not my $ back). Then I was offered the employee's "personal" 50% discount. Persisted and after 5-10 minutes was offered and accepted a 75% refund. Several days later I checked my credit card account: yes there was a credit for $71 BUT, there also was a brand NEW charge for $89 on the same date. Called again. Script used was the same as the previous time - told I didn't read their ad, that "of course" they don't give away their product for free etc. etc. Was offered 25%, then 50%, then 75%. I refused all over and over (for ~5-10 mins) until I was told I would get a full refund to my credit card in 3-5 days. We'll see if that actually happens. . . I was also informed that they would "block me from their website" and I could never order their product again (as if I ever would). My advice, be persistent, refuse to accept any of their offers and let them know you will be contacting the Better Business Bureau and your credit card company.”
“I got caught in the 14-day "free" trial scam -- the charge came in the name of "BRILLIANT EYE" -- after I canceled with the company, I wondered how I missed seeing that "14-day" reference. When I clicked on the ad again, the name of the product had been "rebranded" under another name... other than that, the ad was identical -- and there was no reference to 14 days ANYWHERE, at least prior to the customer clicking on the button asking for the free trial. Wish I had seen this first.”
“BEWARE - your "16 day trial period" begins as soon as you place your order - NOT when you get charged for it and NOT the day you start using it! How can this be called a trial period when you might not even have received the product! So - depending on the postal service at the time and for your area, your "trial" period could be as short as a week (as was mine). I managed to get 75% of my money back but with a lot of hassle. WAHT A SCAM”
“Most places have a 30 day trial, this only 14 days. Of course they don't tell you that. Card was charge 89.00 for each item I have ordered as a trial. Called them and told them you don't even know if it works in 14 days. Would not refund. Don't fall for it like I did. DON"T LIKE THE COMPANY OR THE PRODUCT!!!!”
“I wish I had read these reviews before I order my "free" trial, there is nothing free about it these people played a very nasty trick on innocent consumers and should honestly be ashamed of them selfs but the old saying is true, if it's to good to be true it's probably not. Consumers BEWARE!!”
“Is it possible to give a 0 ? Product was no good and they charged $89, as it was a 14 day trial and I did not cancel. Nothing was mentioned in the receipt they sent along; very deceiving. Will stop watching Shark tank; they should do better than this.”
“Alert! These people are scam artist the product does not work and they will charge your card at the drop of a hat. There statement that you can not return the product because it's a "consumed product." Which I have never come across such a thing. Most every product or item can be return if consumer is not satisfied. The truth is that what they are really saying "Your Not Getting Your Money Back!; We're Keeping Your Money Whether you like it or not!" Contact the BBB and place a complaint. Dis-honest business needs to be reported.”
“THE CREAM BURNED MY FACE. I WAS CHARGED FULL PRICE EVEN AFTER EXPLAINING THAT THE CREAM CAUSED REDNESS, BURNING, & WELTING ON MY FACE.. THEY REFUSED TO REFUND MY MONEY.. I GOT STUCK WITH TWO BOTTLES I HAVE NO USE FOR.. WISH I WOULD HAVE SEEN THIS POST FIRST :(”
““I ordered this product May 20, 2017 and agreed to the 14-day trial period. After using a few times, I realized it was not for me. I called and cancelled and yet they charged me 180 on my debit card even before the trial was over. The company refused to refund my money.”
“I purchased this as a viewer of Shark Tank. Any company that can not refund your money for an unopened product that you are waiting to receive from their company believe it they are scammers. You can't trust anything these days. People ripping off hard working Americans that's what this company does!!!!”
“I cant believe this product and company is still allowed to con people with this scam they should be taken off the internet . I too was coned into $175.00 for two very small amounts of face cream. What kills me is the people at the other end of the phone. When you call and find out what is going on they seem okay with telling you that you fucked up by not reading the fine print as they hide it along with asking you if you where 21 years or older when you signed up for the free trial . everything about this is wrong.. shame on these mother fuckers who blandly steal money from people.”
“This company is a SCAM...do not order the "sample" as I did. They say the total charge is shipping only, and then 2 weeks later they charge you $85. When I called to complain, they said the product I was sent was not a SAMPLE at all, but the real product. I was on a RENEWA: program. They were very rude and unhelpful. Stay FAR AWAY!!”
“I ordered this product in January 2017 and agreed to the 14-day trial period. After using a few times, I realized it was not for me. The merchant debited my card on the 13th day of the trial, and I called to cancel and asked my bank to reverse the charges. I received a confirmation of the cancellation via email a few days later, but the merchant fought the reversal saying I agreed to pay. At the time I disputed the charge, I did not have the cancellation confirmation. It was too late. If you order, cancel with the first five days or less, this way you will keep your money.”
“I too fell for this. They should be shut down for deceitful advertising. Their website says 30 day free trial but doesn't even tell the cost of the cream anywhere but in the fine print in the terms. That should've been a red flag for me but I order before I thought it through. My account was charged and then was told it was only 14 days from the day you order it. What a scam! I'm ready for a class action. This is NOT a reputable company.”
“Yes, this is a business practice that really calls to question the ethics of the company. But how dumb of me that I didn't see this coming. I pulled the trigger on the sample before I went to the full product website. This is important -- it is possible to purchase this product indirectly so that you never see the full disclosure about the terms of the purchase. I did call customer service to cancel and was asked to return the unused portion, which I am doing. Lovely person on the call center line, poor them -- she confessed to getting numerous calls with complaints. As to the product -- it felt nice. No complaints but neither did it work magic in the two days that I kept it. Sad really, because I would have kept it longer if the company was honest. Live and learn -- let's hope my cancellation really works.”
“Yes, I was scammed too. When I called to complain and to cancel a subscription I knew nothing about, she tried to convince me that I was the only one not to understand the terms and conditions. I only wished I found this page prior to ordering the "free" same.”
“I too got enticed by the trial offer without realizing I would need to cancel within 14 days! Got an email that alerted me, called asap, was assured that my order was cancelled. And that my order would NOT be shipped. Then got an email that my order shipped! What?! Called with my cancellation # and was told the product was mine to keep for free and that my account was closed. I'm not happy because I don't like their set up! Tell people the truth!”
“I fell for the free items and only paid the shipping. I was careful to read everything and was unaware of the ongoing "open account" that would allow future shipment and charges to me. I used the product and saw no real changes or improvements after one month. I called and requested to cancel the acct and void any future shipments. The operator tried everything to keep me on the hook, even offering their own "employee discount"!!! What? I cannot believe that companies like this can get away with this sort of thing. I did request and receive a cancellation number that was emailed to me to confirm the closure of my unknowingly "open account".”
“Huge scam that I fell for. They offer a "free trial," which is subtly different from a "free trial sample." You get the stuff to try for 14 days and then you have to call to cancel. If not, you get charged ($90 per product). When ordering you have to check a box that says you are over 21 and have read the terms and conditions. Which I didn't. Don't make the same mistake. Also, the stuff doesn't work.”
“Zero stars! I made the mistake of ordering this based on the magical video demonstration. They charged $4.97 to my credit card AND 99 cents in a separate transaction the same day. (When questioned they said that was charged to insure that they could resend the shipment if it didn't get to me the first time.) The 14 day "trial" starts the day you order NOT when the package arrives and they charge you $89.97 exactly 14 days after you order. Whatever's in the cream caused me such a bad skin breakout that I had to use dermatologist-prescribed topical to clear it. The Call Center won't give up the company contact info to complain or report reactions! Credit card charge is from Chenven Radiant Skin. DON"T DO IT!”
“Don't waste your money- it doesn't work and caused my skin to break out. Also, as others have stated- IF you do decide to try it, make sure you cancel and when you do, make sure you write down every name, number etc. because I cancelled and they still charged me 91$ and refused to refund my money. Total scam.”
“Click on TERMS at the bottom of the page in the fine print. This is where they tell you that you will be charged $89+ monthly for your "free Trial". Any product that uses a SCAM like this is not to be trusted. Trying to cancel the automatic monthly shipments is near impossible. I did not fall for this particular scam, but I fell for a similar scam several years ago.”
“I fell for the "Shark Tank " product. This stuff is a jar of glycerin and mineral oil. With additives that caused my skin to itch and break out in hives. Please start a class action suit against these scam artists. I can not get through to a representative to cancel future withdrawals from my account and to stop all shipments. HELP”
“This face cream duo is total crap. It is advertised under multiple names. Supposedly biggest deal ever on Shark Tank. If you read the testimonials, you will find the same testimonials for Apple Cider Vinegar. Scam, Scam, Scam. I bet this review does not show up on any site that tries to get you to buy this. Stay very far away from these products.”
