Type of a scam Phishing
I was in the mall, lured in to the store by a salesperson that stated he “just wanted to give me a free sample of eye cream”…I am not making excuses for buying the products but the so called “owner” of the company first stated his price for the products was $ 7,000.00 but after an hour of me attempting to leave without buying anything, telling him over and over that I could not afford the products, he quietly stated that “for me” he would sell them for $1,500 and then I caved…I got home feeling sick to my stomach because I really could not afford the $1, 500, and decided to go right back to the mall and return them, as none of the packages were opened and were still in the bag. They would not let me return any of the items for a refund. SCAM!!!! Any reputable company would allow returns if not opened or used and even if you had tried the product and weren’t happy with it!! I learned an expensive lesson and hopes this warns others of this company…STAY AWAY!!

My husband and I recently visited the Scottsdale Fashion Mall in Arizona and were approached by a salesgirl from Selected Skincare to try their eye serum. As she convinced us the product did show results she started putting pressure on us to purchase the product and we did. Soon thereafter another salesman enters and the salesgirl engages him to take us into the back table so he can apply another wrinkle facial product. At this point the intense sales push begins to purchase this face product valued at $5,000. The two salespeople start adding more items to sweeten the deal and also offer a microdermabrasion facial in our local area. The salesgirl gets up and leaves the back room and my husband after about 15 minutes notices her phone is recording our conversation. The phone is given to the salesman and he quickly turns it off. We are now completely done with this whole fiasco and the salesman continues again to convince us to purchase the product for a reduced price of $2,500. This is when I quickly check the BBB website and discover that someone else had the same problem. These two salespeople are very pushy and should not be allowed to work in this line of business.
