Le Baleux Skin Cream Trial Offer Review – Is it a scam?

Le Baleux Skin Cream Trial Offer Review – Is it a scam?

To fight your own signs of ageing you maybe tempted by products such as Le Baleux.

This anti-ageing skin cream makes a number of impressive claims, but you must ask yourself whether this product is as effective as it is claimed to be.

If you want to discover the truth behind the hype then I would suggest that you continue reading. We will soon unveil the truth about this offer.

Claims made by Le Baleux

The Le Baleux website makes the following claims:

  • Reduce the signs of ageing
  • Effectively combat wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness

To check that these claims are accurate you should check to see what ingredients the product contains.

Ingredients found in Le Baleux

Unfortunately, not only is there no label available, but there is also almost no ingredient information available at all.

The only ingredient information that has been stated is that it “contains antioxidants”, which is certainly not enough information to prove the claims.

Price of Le Baleux

Le Baleux is not available for free, even though it is available for trial.

Once the 14 day trial has concluded you will be charged $98.64, you will also be automatically added to an auto-ship program, which will ship you further monthly packages.

These auto-shipments will continue monthly until your subscription is cancelled.

Is the Le Baleux trial offer a scam?

Due to the complete lack of information we cannot recommend this offer.

There are serious doubts surrounding the claimed benefits, while the price is too high.

The final straw is the use of auto-shipping, which in the past has led to complaints from users who have signed up to similar offers.

I would suggest that you look for an alternative. We have suggested one for you below.

  1. 9/19/17 – Purchased intro offer of Le.Baleux on 9/07/17 … should have known SCAM in the making. When I first went through the process to get trial offer, it was supposed to be $1.98. By the time I could get out of the trial product purchase process, I was FORCED to accept an additional $4.99 product. Then, tried to call and close the account (within the 14 day trial period) and Donnie would not let me close account. He just kept going into one scripted spiel after another. Then, he wanted me to return the product. Now, why would I do that? The whole point of a trial product is to use the product to see if you like it. I had full intention of using all the trail product(s) and if I liked the product(s), ordering them “for real”. I asked Donnie to not “hard sale” me or I would not buy the product if he continued to do so. He continued to go into yet another “hard sell” spiel. Finally, I told him, after multiple & more escalating round-abouts, I would sue if I received another charge and hung up on him. A few minutes later, I called back and spoke with Francine. I figured I would just call back and just keep saying “Close the Account” until I got satisfaction. Francine said right away that everything had been cancelled, so I requested the Cancellation Confirmation Numbers. She quickly provided these to me (one for each product). Le Baleux, if you are reading this, you might have had a long term customer if I had not been so poorly treated. I have used Skin Authority products for 20+ years and was looking for something new. You might try being more cooperative with potential customers.

    • The same thing happened to me today, exact same scenario. The add said it was Joanne Gaines new product and she was letting you try her face cream for one month for shipping only. I thought it weird when I checked out there were other products added on. I called to cancel the additional order and told I would get monthly orders at $98 a month for each item. After demanding the order be canceled numerous times, they are a SCAM

    • Same thing happened to me. It is a scam and sub-par product.

  2. BUYER BEWARE!!!!
    Read the fine print prior to ordering the free trial of Le Baleux or any free trial going forward. There are many hidden fees. This trial is for 14 days and if you decide to keep the product, you will pay over $98.00 for this little bit of product which I would be surprised if it will even last 14 days. When you cancel, you will be charged $9.95 retention fee. Daniel advised me that I had to pay the retention fee to cancel and that that I was informed of this agreement when I signed up for the free trial. I paid it but I do not recommend this to anyone. The results are not as claimed. I have used it day and night for 8 days and I do not see a difference.

    Reply
    • What a scam! I had never heard of a retention fee if I cancelled. The cream was about half a teaspoon and did not work. I paid $5.95 for shipping and then $9.95 to cancel or I would have to pay $98.00 for the full price. The man who assisted me when I called to cancel would not tell me what country he was in. I called again awhile ago because they charged the $9.95 twice. Hopefully the woman that I spoke with will credit one of the $9.95 charges. I WILL NEVER FALL FOR ANY OF THESE TRIAL PRODUCTS AGAIN.

      Reply
      • My experience exactly. $9.95 to cancel? Twice? What I did was dispute the charge and cancel the bank card I had used to pay. No chance of a rogue $98.00 charge just “showing up”. Stay away from this company.

        Reply
      • I was also tricked into signing up for this product. There is no way you could see any difference in 14 days. I was charged almost $100 for both product. When I saw these charges on my account I was livid! I demanded that I be removed from their subscription. I called the number which appeared on my bank statement. It was 888 353-1702. Your article saids I should call 888 509-8221. I’m about to call this number also and cancel. THIS IS A SCAM!

  3. Oh my gosh. Im on disability and can not afford Le Baleux. They are scammers and refuse to let you speak to a manager. Or supervisior. I read when I agreed to order samples there was nothing (I believe) anything about a trial and membership. Now im being charged 89.65 and 73.98 for eye cream and facecream. When I just paid for shipping for both. Please help. No one will listen when I call. Keep trying to get me to buy more. Thank you so upsetting. A scam big time. Their ad says ruch me my trial.

    Reply
  4. They charge me $98.65 after 14 days. I called them and he told me he will return only 35% for the charge amount. I told them not you will return all my money back. After they charge me $98.65 I never received products from them. They are scammers.

  5. “Free trial” hahahaha. Don’t fall for this. No where did the ad tell you what they were going to charge you after the so called”free trial.” I have called 2 times to cancel and get the same answer, pay 9.95 per cream and we will provide you with a cancellation number. That is another 20.00 on top of the 4.99 + 1.98+ 3.99. all I was wanting was the 4.99 cream. What a major scam

  6. I am as upset as can be….ordered your cream…received bottle of eye cream which I DID NOT ORDER…..with my package…..please remove me from your list and cancel the $100.00 charge to my account…..you are out to make money which you do not deserve….the Better Business Bureau and others will soon receive my complaine to fraud the public….send me an email and how I can get the $100 back…..What a scam….

  7. THIS SCAM IS GOING TO MAKE EVERY CUSTOMER UPSET AND ANGRY…..if I do not receive my $100 back I will talk with my attorney…Just keep Jean Williams at the top of you list to make the necessary adjustment.

  8. I ordered this “free sample” of face cream after seeing an unbelievable video. All I had to pay was the shipping and that was all . After receiving and trying Le Baleux face cream and lumere eye sirum I was not impressed with at all. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks that this is a scam and I bet they are going to keep sending and billing me for these products. So immediately I called the customers service number from the pamphlets that came in the box. It was a call center with lots of people in the background with accents from another country. I asked the customer service agent if they were going to keep sending and billing me. He said, how do you like the products” and I said, “ I don’t like them at all and I don’t want you to keep sending them to me if that’s what you are about to do, I want to cancel any further shipments and Billings .” He told me that I couldn’t cancel until after trying them for thirty days. I told him I wanted it cancelled today then he blew a whistle in the phone and hung up. I called back and when the new guy answered I told him not to hang up on me because the last guy did. I told him I wanted to cancel all future shipments today. I also asked how much do they charge for these products anyway? Then he acted like he couldn’t hear me. He said, hello, hello, hello, I can not hear you therefore I am hanging up the phone since you are not saying anything. By this time I am so livid I can’t see straight. I then realized that they have my Visa card number. I called the bank and they told me the only thin I can do I cancel my Visa card and get a new one. Then I found out people are getting billed $98 for each of the cream and$98 for the sirum every month. I should consider myself lucky! THIIS IS A SCAM!!!!

  9. I am speaking my mind and im wondering why people in their comments don,t say anything about how the cream works! In the end this is the most important because if it does, any woman who wants to look younger would spend the $98 a month. And if you do not want to be charged after the 14 days trial just call and cancel your subscription for God’s sake! And yes, in the ads is saying very clear that this is a trial and a membership follows but nobody pays attention in their rush to get stuff for free. I am not working for the company, i did not use the cream and i have no intention to buy it. I was just curious to read some real reviews about it but they are very difficult to find. I think this is the only website with a real review (for which i thank you), unfortunately the comments are not helpful at all

    • I TRIED to cancel – they wouldnt listen to me! Just to get rid of the customer service person, I foolishly agreed to extend my “trial period”.

    • I’m using the product morning and night and have more lines under my eyes. I’m 62 with smooth skin for my age. My crow feet was my concern and now lines under my eyes. I’m also experiencing blemishes on my cheeks and burning. No I haven’t been in the sun. I also know about the charges in detail because I asked multiple questions about auto shipping and such. I know they told me I can cancel after 14 days are I’ll be charged $98 but I’ll keep this bottle but will cancel. I just don’t think this product is for me. People yes it’s a small bottle but it’s supposed to be use sparingly and it will last. This is my 5 day. I guess there’s nothing that really stops aging products except genetics. I’m blessed my family have good genes but still have lines by my eyes that I could control. Oh well.

    • Emilia, the product lacks what any cheap over the counter facial cream provides…a relaxing feel after application!!! My skin felt as if i applied wax to my skin, my skin looked dull & it takes lots of cream to cover the face. The 14 days would be maybe 5 days worth of cream. It would be a mistake, a big hassle to get this product. I’d rather buy AVON according to age which is a great cream!
      Of course I’m only one person & you should decide rather or not to buy this product, just keep in mind what all the ladies on this site have commented….. Good luck Emilia

      Reply
    • I read the entire ad online before I ordered the “free trial” and there was NOTHING to indicate that I was signing up for automatic shipments! It simply said that you should use the cream for 14 days before you decide if you want to continue using it. It does NOT tell you that a membership follows! The cream did absolutely nothing for my skin. Avon works better.
      And I had the same experiences as the rest of the people commenting on this site when I called to cancel after being sent a new jar of cream, except I wasn’t charged for cancelling. This is definitely a scam!

  10. I ordered the trial and said I wouldn’t be charged for 14 days. I looked at my bank statement and they already tried to charge me the $98.65! I had the cream for 2 days and don’t even like it. Feels horrible on my skin………

    Amazing how they get away with this shit….

  11. I ordered the trial and tried to cancel. The customer service person wouldn’t even LISTEN to me, kept talking over me, and just to get rid of him, I agreed to extending my “trial period”. They are a HORRIBLE company to deal with! I am actually dreading calling them again to cancel, but you better believe I will be doing that today!!!

    • I think that’s the whole intent…for you to get so frustrated that you give up and agree to continue. Stand up for yourself! Don’t be bullied into spending that much money for something you don’t want! I’m so sorry! I was thinking of trying it but absolutely will not! Good luck! Contact BBB!

  12. Wow and to think that Jennifer Anniston is backing them up. It makes me think so different of her. I use to think she was down to earth. But I GUESS NOT. Thanks for all of your comments. I did not fall for the free trial. I did my research first. I tried to buy the cream itself without the trial. It’s impossible.

    Thanks to all of you for the advise.

    Really,

    Cheryl

  13. After reviewing my bank statement I realized what they had charged me for practically no product that I don’t like and can’t use…..I called and spoke with a rep and after repeatedly stating that I don’t want it and will send it back the rep said I will get a full refund, which is almost $200 in 3 to 5 business days…..we will see 😤

  14. Yes. All of the above is true. This is a dishonest misleading scam. Cream is OK. BUT They tell you you’re ordering one thing you’re forced to get two. The “trial” turns out to be a charge of $98.!! Do not get sucked in by this like I did. Call right away to cancel but be prepared to get a run around with an off-shore idiot Indian accent scammer. GOOD LUCK. Live and learn.

  16. Thank you everyone for your comments, I will never try this skin care line. Mostly because of reading all these comments and reading the one response from the company admin who basically was a pos with their response! If it smells this bad from the beginning and they can’t get poised customer reps to handle customers right, they don’t deserve a dime. Don’t really care about shark tank on TV! I work with real investors, not ones who care about being on tv and taking too much money from those just starting out..

    • O ordered the trial and it’s only a week supply not a month. There is no way you can use this twice a day on face and neck for 30 days. It turns your face white so I hope you have white skin or use make up afterwards. I was tricked into ordering eye cream. I did not know I was being billed every month till I called to complain. She kept saying she could not g ear me and I refused to hang up. I refused the discount 3 times. She told me I had to pay 9.95 to cancel and I refused and said I would call my bank and leave a review and she canceled me.

  17. SCAM!!!!!! They “give” you 14 days to try the product but don’t tell you that the 14 days begin on the day you place the order. I received the samples and the next day found a charge for $98 on my credit card! When I called to dispute the charge I was told that my “trial period” had elapsed and, not only was there nothing I could do to get out of paying the charge, but that I would be charged $98 each and every month for the next year! Obviously that was not going to fly so I contacted my credit card company and they are taking care of it. They are very familiar with this company. But save yourself the hassle. I feel like a moron – I should have known better. Next time I want a sample I will go to my Lancôme counter like a normal person!

  18. Ladies do NOT fall for this “stinking” scam!!! As soon as I applied the product I was sure I do not like it, it feels as if I applied wax to my face. I called customer service way before the trial period (14 days) was over & had a heck of a time to cancel. The Rep kept talking over me & from the sound of it he was reading from a script. It took forever & me yelling in to the phone to receive a cancellation #. One’s supposed to send the cream product back & this makes me wonder why & what will they do to all the send products…! Will they just reseal the items & mail to other ladies? At this point I wouldn’t put this past them!!!
    My bank is already informed NOT to allow any money to be paid to this cheating & caniving company. Who would’ve known the ladies & gentleman from “SHARK TANK” allow to be connected to such scam artists…!!!

  19. This is a total scam. Nowhere did it say I was signing up for a recurring subscription after I received my “free” trial that I paid $4.99 for. I always read the fine print and there was none or I wouldn’t have gotten the trial. I never received the trial and just checked my credit card and was charged $98.64 for more product that I never received. I called the number and of course got someone in a different country that answered the phone as just customer service. I asked what customer service I was calling and he said they were customer service for several different skin car products. Did not feel comfortable at all. I told him I never received the product or the sample and I wanted this canceled and my credit card refunded and after hearing the sales scripts several times I sat on hold while he got a manager. He confirmed that they had the wrong zip code and that the product was sent back to them so he was going to refund my card and cancel the subscription. I’m not confident and will dispute the charge if I have to and then report my card lost. Total scam do not purchase this.

  20. Total scam. Everyone should report them to the Better Business Bureau!

  21. This is a total scam. Advertises its product as a SharkTank product. Don’t know why they do not investigate using their name. Your “free trial” sample is not only NOT free, you will be charged $98 after only 2 weeks for the sample. No way you see any results in that length of time. You will also be charged $98 a month until you can get it the Anchorage Alaska junk stopped. no ingredients list. I tried to stop it from my credit card but they contested the cancellation until I just paid the $98. I did however get it stopped from auto ship after complaining about the product before the second shipment. Do not do it!!! READ small print.

  22. I wish i had read these comments before i had ordered this product! I to was scammed out of $98 bucks by these crooks. I called my bank to cancel my credit card and to dispute the charges. A month later, my bank sent me a letter stating that they researched the item i reported and that it didn’t require any correction. This infuriated me !!!! And when i called to speak with someone from le baleux, I got this person with a heavy accent, probably from Pakastan. All he did was talk over me and wouldn’t let me speak with a manager or a supervisor. I told him I was going to report them to the Better Business Bureau. I hope everyone that has had a negative experience with these scammers would do the same.

    Reply
  23. I was charged the $98.64 for Le Baleux so called the customer service number. I told “Ethan” that I wanted the charge removed and that I would not pay the cancellation fee of $9.95 that I had read about in the numerous negative reviews of the company. He started his spiel about the 14 day trial and how it started the day the order was placed, but I cut him off and questioned how the 14 days could start when I did not have the product in my hand. I told him that if he did not refund the charge that I would dispute it with my bank and tell them it was fraudulant, and that my bank would believe me and cancel the charge.
    “Ethan” talked to a manager and I have confirmation emails that my account has been closed and my refund is being processed and will appear in 3-5 days on my account. I will follow up if the charge is not removed.

  24. This isn’t the only product there doing this to people with. They told me when I called to cancel which product was I calling about. ‘huh’ I said I couldn’t believe what I heard. SCAM Will NEVER DO THAT AGAIN 😡 I was told by many Friends and reviews try meaningful beauty!

  25. This is the biggest scam. they should close the place down. do not order this product……….

  26. If you have ordered this cream, call your credit card company immediately so they have a red flag in case these scammers try to charge your credit card more than the $4.95 for shipping. Ladies, it’s not about selling cream, who knows what the ingredients really are, these people are just scamming from the beginning. Call them up and demand you be taken off the automatic list and when they say, you are going to be charged $9.95 to cancel, you say “No”. Get the person’s name and the cancellation number so you have it for your credit card company in case they need it. Do not give them the 3 numbers on the back of your card. Live and Learn from this!
