All of us want a miracle about our skin. We simply want to get back all the freshness and tightness of our skin just within blink of an eye. Well, the anti-aging beauty product Ave Creme makes such a miraculous claim. According to the manufacturer, it readily acts on the cells of the skin to make it look young and fresh within no time.
And you don’t need to go through all the expensive, risky and a bit hazardous plastic surgeries and Botox etc. but is it all true? Can we really believe the claims of Ave Creme? Let me guide you about making a buying decision. I’ll thoroughly examine its composition, price and other aspects to make the picture clear. So let’s start our journey.
What does the beauty product claim?
When I visited its site, I came across several claims by the manufacturer like ageless eyes and an everlasting youthful appearance.
It claims to reduce the issues of wrinkles and crinkles and stress lines up to 84%. It also claims to reduce the collagen production by 95% and a 73% minimization of dark circles. However, the first thing struck my mind was that all those claim realistic. Or these are only words to make us fool. Don’t you worry; I’ll analyze this serum on the basis of its components, price and other essential aspects to verify its overwhelming claims. After that, I’ll tell you whether you should buy this serum or not.
Ingredients of Ave Creme
This serum claims to be the best injection-free remedial measure to get smooth, tight skin and eyes. Let’s see what it actually made of. Well, there is not much information available in this respect. Like all other similar products, its site claims that it is made by scientifically tested and proven components to remove the wrinkles permanently. However, this information is not enough to establish the truthfulness of such claims. It does not tell that the product is safe to apply on the skin. In my opinion, it is not satisfactory information at all. I’ll never advice to use this product.
Price of the Ave Creme
You’ve to pay only $5.79 for the shipment of the product but if you’re not happy with the product, you can cancel your subscription within 14 day trial + 4 day shipping period (a total of 18 days) . However, if you don’t cancel it within the time limit of 18 days, your credit card will be charge with an amount of $88.70. In addition to that, it is an auto-replenishment subscription which means you’ll have to pay $88.70 each month. Well, not fair at all! You can cancel your monthly package or one-time subscription by contacting them on 800-260-9856 or you can email them on email@example.com.
All in all, you must avoid such products with dubious or unclear information about their components. And Ave Creme is not an exception from such products. It is really risky to buy it and play with your sensitive skin. So stay away from this product.
“Can I do less than 1 star? This is a scam. This company signed me up for makeup tutorials and started billing me $9.95 a month, apparently they sent me an email, but I don't have it. When I finally spoke to a supervisor, she said she wasn't at her computer so she couldn't send me proof, that it was to hard. When I laughed and apologized for asking her to do her job, she hung up on me. DO NOT SIGNUP. by the way, the skin cream was crap, the never ending unauthorized subscriptions with multiple companies was even bigger crap!!!”
“I've used Ave Creme for a few months now and have not seen the kind of results they advertise. My eyes are puffy (I look like there are 3 different undereye bags where some stuff my sister gave me worked wonders in one day) and I refuse to use it anymore. I'm sitting on two orders I haven't even used yet, and I don't plan to. I would not advise anyone use this product.”
“Given one star since rep at 877-292-7859 was pleasant and efficient and rebated me $80 today for stuff I didn't order. When is a "free trial" or "low-cost trial" not free or low-cost? When it's this and similar scam-ola companies.”
“That would be a minus 100! I called my bank and they recommended I cancel my card and get a new card so these product terrorists could no longer steal money out of my account. I'm old enough to know better than to get involved in a mess like this. I will never order online again except with a gift card that only has a limited amount of money to scam, which I had always done before. A really rude young man answered the last call and argued about the amount taken out of my bank account when I was looking right at the amount on my statement. Said he canceled my subscription which I was unaware I had. Refused to give me any refund. Sent me an e-mail saying that my subscription had been canceled.That was a month ago. Today I received more of their drying cream, which is why I called my bank. Tonight I spoke with a young lady who (she said) refunded $120 to my account even though they have taken more out than that. Its too bad we don't have an attorney general right now! PLEASE DON'T SIGN UP FOR THIS SCAM!”
“this cream burned the skin around my eyes and they are permanently damaged. they were so puffy they were practically sealed shut. i had to see the doctor and be put on steroids. my eyes are in worse shape than before i started using this cream. terrible product. i didnt give it the one star that is marked. it was an accident and it wont let me fix it to 0 stars”
“This is an absolute scam, why isn't Better Business Bureau involved in this- it has victimized so many and yet they continue to deceive the public. The product is completely useless and doesnt do a thing to your skin. Shouldn't their terms be more visible if they were honest? They lure you into getting it and using names like Kathy Gifford, Barbara Walters, Ellen DeGeneres and many more. Their number 877-292-7859 is for the birds, they even cut you off!”
“No Rating. Minus 5 star Rating I asked for the sample as advertised paying 5.79 charging my credit card, which I have received.. On 24 September, however, this company charged my credit card with $ 87.70 WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE. I reported my credit card company that this is fraudulent charge. My credit card company was kind enough to give me credit of $ 87.50 on 2nd of October, subject to invrstigation. My credit card Company reported me to confirm a charge of $ 9.95 on 25 Oct. I told this a fraudulent charge which is charged by the same / its allied co. On 25 October it self I had a talk through my credit company with the officer of that company who said that the product is sent on 9/24/18 and I have to Pay or return and the company would return me $ 70/=. Which means I have to $ 17.70 as a reward for doing this fraud to this company apart for 9.95 which again it has charged me on 25 Oct.How is it that I have not received the product which I have never asked for, till 26 OCT even after a long spell of one FULL month. Please never do any business with this cheater company. Any one can e mail to ascertain my genuiness.”
“I thought I was ordering a sample and paying for shipping instead I was enrolled in a club. They hire a 3rd party to take care of this garbage. They charged me 87.50 and would only give me back 60. I've never heard of such a trashy way to do business. I would never work for a place which was so deceptive in what they are offering and treating people so poorly. What a joke! I am furious but am paying stupid tax and will research more next time before taken in by a bunch of despicable people.”
“No star. I just order this free cream before I read this article. It's very scary!!! How can I stop them from charging my credit card? Are there anyway to shut their websites so, others won't get scam?”
“From an ads, I signed up for a free trial period. I did not like the product and forgot about this free trial. I had no clue that I ended up subscribing their product every month from this free tiral period, and Ave Creme started to charge on my credit card $172.7 each month without my authorization or notifying me. When I called them and told them I did not want their product, they refused to refund me the money. After I talked to their supervisor who gave me partial refund. I found out later they charged on my credit card many months already. We need to file complaints against this company's shaky business practice. Does anyone know which state is Ave Creme located? Run away from Ave Creme!!!”
“After reading the content of this product found one with similar ingredients much cheaper. I had to go to internet to get phone number to cancel as the information sent with product was double typed over phone number. Why can scams like this not be stopped. How do they get by using well known people's names? Carol Baker”
“There must be something that we can do to stop these thieves. It is not for us to mere ly ask for a refund of the money that is charged to our credit card. There has to be a way to stop them. My credit card was charged four times $4:78, $5.79, $ 86.20 and $87.50. I have to find a way to report this to the Better Business Bureau. These are scoundrels and dogs. How can we file a class action.”
“This is a complete scam. Do not buy this "free product". They claim when you sign up you click a box that says you are subscribed and then charge you $87.00 but will only refund 60.00. For people looking to get a partial refund, call the number on your statement. I will dispute the charges with my credit card company. I called twice and when I spoke to the first person I requested to speak to a supervisor and she said that it could be a long wait as there is no supervisor available. I called back and spoke to another person and asked for a supervisor and got the same song and dance. When I asked for a name for a supervisor they hung up. Don't be deceived.”
“I cancelled before the 14 days were up and was told to return the jar or pay $17.00. I phoned them and was told that the jar was not free that I paid for shipping and postage only. This is the reason I have a credit card from Bank of America. You use Shop Safe and get a new number for each purchase. I set the limit on this purchase at $6.00 so they could not charge me more. When I told the guy that they could not charge my cc for more money he said they would cancell my purchase as a courtesy and not charge for the jar. Creme made no difference and I used it for 30 days. A Scam indeed.”
“Can someone please give me a phone # or whatever it is to get in touch with these scumbags. What a joke. Sending my 15 yr old daughter Face Cream REALLY.? I HAVE 3201 w Hillsborough ave. Tampa Fl. These ppl have to be prosecuted. I will try to form a class action lawsuit . Only need 10 ppl. Pls. Anyone in email me. I work for alot of judges”
“ZERO rating on product and this company will not clearly state when you buy the trial that they will charge you over $80.00 only 3 weeks after paying for the trial!! They even promised a full refund (minus what I paid for the trials) when I returned the product then retracted THAT!! Total SCAM!”
“I caution my own adult kids to avoid this type of "special offer", so I'm embarrassed I fell for this rip off. My vanity and desire for younger looking skin must have taken hold of me long enough to fall for it. I'd advise you not to get involved with this company in any way. Run, don't walk away from this.”
“Horrible worthless product and sneaky company taking advantage of people and stealing their money! The webpage (and it was only one page) I ordered this free sample from had NO terms and conditions and advertising this product was created by and produced by Princess Kate from England who wanted to share her discovery with all women everywhere. Never again will I order anything that advertises as free and pay only shipping costs!”
“I agree 200% this is a sham. This should be posted in the post offices, be aware of this internet ad. My account was charged $178.77, before I received the Anti-Wrinkle Formula and the Advance Eye Serum. So by time I received the products my trial period was over. I called 3 times and was finally offered $120.00 refund. I want my $178.77. Oh yes, beware of smooth talking Jake, cause, he will answer all customer service phone numbers. There should be a law for sham like this. Charso”
“I called the number above and said I would refuse any charges to my account from Ave creme. She said because I checked the box saying I agree with the terms I couldn't do that but she would give me a $60 refund. Better than a sharp stick so I agreed and canceled my "subscription?". Whew!!”
“Total scam. Do not order. This sample is not free! 1. the cream seems watered down. 2. you are not given ample time to see the effects (if any) of the cream working, before they automatically charge your credit card $87.50 for the SAMPLE. The new charge isn't for a new supply being mailed to you....its for the small, watered down, sample you initially received. When an attempt was made to cancel the offer I was informed of the "small print" on an entirely different webpage than the original order page. DO NOT ORDER!!! (disregard the one star)”
“I called to cancel and they said I couldn’t that they charge me $88.70 twice which I did not ask him to debit my account I tried to cancel the even told me I had to pay a restocking fee the bottom line is they gave me back $120 out of my almost $300 bill that they charge me . Scam”
“I paid the shipping on the free bottle. I have since been charge for another bottle that I did not order. I can not figure out how to ask for a refund. I've been on their website; as well as facebook If any of you can help, i'd greatly appreciate it. I have a police officer friend who works fraud cases. They are in hot water.”
“I wish I'd seen this site sooner, but I fell for the scam, too. It's not a sample--you will be charged monthly. Who can pay that price monthly for a cream that doesn't tell you the list of ingredients in it? I'm so upset and wanted to warn others. How does this company get away with scamming people who think they're a legitimate company?”
“Scam Scam Scam ! They said this was Joanna Gaines Company. It is not her company. These people need to be turned into the Atty Generals Division Consumer Protection Agency. These have many Conoany names and are using many famous names as owners of the company. Total Scam!”
“Thought I'd received a trial sample of the Ave Crème and Ave Eye Creme. Then they charged me $87.50. Didn't read the fine print. Now I know the fine print says my credit card will have a monthly "recurring" shipment of $57. What a mistake! Many thanks to the reviewer who included the 800 number to cancel. Canceled today. Ave Crème is a case of BUYER BEWARE!”
“This company is all about deceiving the consumer. You will think you are ordering a 30 day sample of their product, but in the fine print of their Terms and Conditions", you are agreeing to be billed $89.95 a month unless you cancel in 14 days. I called them to cancel on the 15th day when my bank alerted me this possible fraud and Purely Organics refused to give me a full refund. I argued them into giving me 50% refund which is still a rip off. I am alerting Amazon and others to the deceptive practices of this unethical company.”
“I called to cancel Ave Cream after using it for 5 days, and was told the only way to stop further billings is to send the bottle back to them !! If not $19.95 will be billed to my cu, because the sample I paid for is not free, I was told !! What crooks !! Beware !!”
“Following up to my previous post. Below is the response I received from the company when I complained about the $180 charged to my card. Note, I never received this information when I ordered and I didn't receive the package until well after the supposed 14-day trial period. The options I was given when I called the number below was spend $30 to return the bottles and incur a restocking fee, or keep the bottles and they would refund me only $120 (I opted for the latter). They clearly have this scam down pat. Hello Lynn, You ordered a 14 day trial of the Ave crème Wrinkle and Eye Serum. Your trial started on the day you submitted the order on 7/13/2018 (14+4 days for S&H the total of 18days) and expired on 7/30/2018. Since you did not call to cancel you were charged for the products that you have in your possession. We understand that you may have forgotten to call in time so please give us a call at (800) 260-9856 so we can assist you with those charges. I went ahead and cancelled your account in the meantime. Thank You, Customer Support”

“I don't even remember ordering, but looks like I was suppose to get a 14 day trial, I have not even opened it, and then they charged me $170. I am willing to return unopened bottles, not worth that kind of money. They would only refund $120 so I am disputing with my bank. Crappy scam going on.”
“Advertized as Shark Tank endorsed. Shark Tank has nothing to do with this product. I noticed a $180. charge on my credit card when I thought I was getting a trial for $5.95. Called and was told "that was the shipping charge." I told them his was fraudulent and wanted my money back. They would only refund $120. I am amazed at the number of fake websites there are for this crap. A class action lawsuit might make them think twice.”
“I had that same problem as the lady from July 31, 2018. I got rooked in by a picture of Baba WaWa and Joy Bayner who said it was her company! That should have been my first red flag! Not to mention the product is terrible. The first time I put it on my face it burned! I negotiated a partial refund from 'Ben' #818 but that is still not fair. I'm fine with the original $5.79 but getting hit with $87.50 is out of the question. !!!BUYER BEWARE!!!”
“The fragrance of these products makes my asthma go crazy as well as congested. I also was charged 87.50 on my credit card, which I didn't authorize. I never saw any thing about being signed up for auto ship or that you only had 14 days to get a full refund on line. I love Kathy Lee, but this is a terrible product if you have breathing difficulties! I had to use my rescue inhalers both times I used these and had to take allergy meds on top of that! I am totally disapointed that a company that KathyLee has would scam people like this!”
“I ordered a trial size for shipping only, then they hit my debit card for over $170.00. I called and they said that was for the next month supply... why would I sign up for auto ship when I thought I was getting a trial supply? I told them to cancel the shipment ( actually my bank caught it as a fraudulent charge) the rep said they would cancel the subscription and give me a refund. Today I saw where they only refunded me $120.. so I called back. The rep, who could barely speak English said Theres a restocking fee even though it has not been shipped. I told him I would return the product and I want a full refund... he said NO because I got a months supply and not the trial size... the story keeps changing. I’m going to file fraud charge paperwork At my bank.he said I didn’t read the terms and that I agreed to all of this... and would not get a full refund. The product is nothing special either... and is full of crap chemicals .... don’t be fooled... there’s nothing free except the hassle and headache to get your money back..”
