PeraGlow Skintensive xGel Trial Offer Review – Is it a scam?

PeraGlow Skintensive xGel Trial Offer Review – Is it a scam?

Those looking to fight the visible signs of ageing maybe tempted by the claimed benefits on offer from PeraGlow.

This anti-ageing cream is currently available for trial, so the following review will look more closely at the offer to see if there are any hidden charges involved.

If you are considering signing up for this offer I would recommend that you continue reading.

Claimed benefits of PeraGlow

PeraGlow is claimed to provide you with the following user benefits:

  • Boost hydration and nourishment
  • Replace lipids lost from ageing
  • Restore skin elasticity and firmness

To verify these claims we will need to look at this offer in more detail. In particular the ingredients that have been used.

Ingredients found in PeraGlow

At the very bottom of their website is a link to view their ingredients in full. You can see it yourself below:

PeraGlow Ingredients

As you can see many of these ingredients have been used in other leading anti-ageing products, so I can certainly see this product offering some benefit to you.

Price of PeraGlow

You may think that PeraGlow only costs $4.95, but you would be mistaken.

Once you have paid this initial shipping charge you will be allowed 18 days to try the product.

After this trial period has elapsed you will be charged again, with this second charge being $94.95.

PeraGlow operates an auto-ship program, so failure to cancel the trial will mean that you are going to receive further monthly packages that will be charged at full price.

Would we recommend PeraGlow?

Having looked more closely at the ingredients used there maybe some benefit to using this product.

We cannot recommend this offer though due to the high cost involved.

There are much cheaper options available that are likely to be just as effective, or potentially even more so.

Contact details for PeraGlow

The following contact details should be used to cancel the PeraGlow trial offer:

Phone: 1-866-201-1963
Email: contact@peraglow.com

I would also recommend speaking to your bank as they deal with offers like this everyday. They should be able to help.

  1. This is a complete scam! It is not at all clear on their website nor in the pamphlet that comes that you will be charged for the full amount. Also the 14 days is not enough time to tell if it even slightly helps – I have been using it for 14 days and I don’t even have many fine lines, and there is zero difference. DEFINATELY DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

      • This is a scam! Buyer beware. It is not a trial, it’s a subscription service and if you keep the “trial” you will be charged the full price!

    • definitely a scam
      I was able to cancel the order for the cream and the primebloom which I also did not order, originally they wanted to still charge me half price for the items , then they went down to 75% off as I said the crème is sensitising my skin. they said I didn’t have to send the crème back even if I can’t use it. there is nothing in the ad saying you have to pay 100 dollars a month for this!!! should be banned by the better business bureau!, now I have to contact the credit card company and get them to deny payment.
      why do we all get sucked into this stuff it is horrible!!

    • Just had the same experience. I ordered this ‘trial’ while on a 2 week vacation – so didn’t get it until the period was up really. Had no idea I was going to be billed at 2 weeks let alone for $250 CDN! When I phoned back 2 days past my trial period to let them know I was unhappy about the trial period and visa bill it sounded like they were going to give my money back. I explicitly asked if I needed to send the product back to get my money back and she said to keep the product, she’d close the account and no future billing would occur. Which sounded great to me.
      So here it is, 7 weeks later and still no refund to my visa. So I call back tonight. I talk to a supervisor who tells me he can’t do anything for me, now that my account is closed. I’m dumbfounded as he also admits they have a supposed 30 day guarantee. Well… like I said to him I clearly called within the 30 days and expressed dissatisfaction about the size of product and what I was billed (I asked him to play the recording of my previous conversation which totally supports my claim). Even with that evidence and a clearly dissatisfied customer he was unable to budge about getting my money back, and worse, there is no apparent way to escalate the issue to someone who can resolve the obvious policy breach that this supervisor was unwilling to discuss. Once they have your credit card there is no recourse. The worst customer experience I have ever had – and I’m no spring chicken.

  2. Agree with Brooke whole-hearteldy in her comment preceding mine! This is an absolute SCAM. You may as well apply mayonnaise to your face, it will give you the same results. In addition to scamming consumers with a useless product, the company does not stand by their return policies. Despite calling within the free sample trial time period to cancel any further orders, my card was charged for the product. I have to return the product, again paying shipping, and trust that, although I’ve been severely duped already, they will actually refund my money. When I called customer service the woman I spoke with was extremely unhelpful and abrasive, telling me that altho I had called within the timeframe, i should have called in the morning, not the afternoon and therefore, she could not refund my money. And what they do not tell you when you order the “free trial sample” of this product, is that you are also signing up for a subscription of the product. So if you don’t call to cancel within a specified time frame, they’ll send you more product routinely charging your card nearly $100 each time!
    This is just a scheme preying on woman concerned about aging. It is a disreputable company pushing a disreputable product and with the slimiest business strategies possible.
    Do not waste your time or you money with this company or product.

    • It certainly is nothing but a SCAM!. When I received the free trial I read the material and found out that they will charge you 94.95. I immediately phoned them and told them I wanted to return the product. Got all kinds of info and I just kept repeating on the phone “What in NO don’t you understand, now give me return #. I returned it immediately on 8/20 …was supposed to be delivered 2 days later and still hasn’t been delivered (8/27). I also cancelled my credit card so they cannot charge me. IDIOTS

    • Hello,

      I feel for this scam now I am trying to figure out how to cancel it. I’m only 7 days in so they haven’t charged me any money yet except the $4.95 for shipping. I tried to use the email above and it bounced back. I’ll try the phone number but hopefully its not “out of service”. If all else fails, I will cancel my credit card.

      Did you manage to finally get your subscription cancelled?

      Thx,
      Lorraine

  3. Its a complete scam.
    If you’ve ordered this product contact your bank and ask them to cancel your card and send you a new one. That’s the only way you can guarantee they don’t take monthly payments of $100!!

  4. It most definitely is a scam!! This company is completely duping unsuspecting women. I ordered a free trial sample from a website but they didn’t disclose that there would be any further charges. Included with the serum was a letter which said you have 14 days to try the serum and if not satisfied, can return it. But they don’t tell you that they’ll charge your credit card $125 if it’s not cancelled on time. I had forgotten to cancel within 14-day period and it was too late! They also sent me a second serum along with the Peraglow costing the same amount which I KNOW I didn’t order for a total of $250 Canadian for both. I called the company which took forever to get through to customer service and complained, and they did give me me a credit of 50% on my credit card but not a full refund. I cancelled any further shipments and notified my bank of the situation in case they try to charge me again.

    • I cancelled 9/15.. yes they kept reducing the cost of products and now they want me to send back the product at my cost..i decided i will not send back the leftover product until my card has been refunded..

  5. I ordered one sample of Periglow, but also received a second sample (PrimeBloom) which I absolutely did not order, but got charged for the second shipping nonetheless. I called to tell them this, and was told there is no refund on shipping. But I didn’t order it!!!

    I am now faced with paying a return shipping fee for something I did not order. And quickly too, otherwise I run the risk of being charged for the next shipment, as per the comments above.

    WARNING TO OTHERS: DO NOT BE DUPED! DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY.

  6. DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY! I was under the impression that I ordered a trial size of PeraGlow. Needless to say, their marketing is rather deceiving. I not only received a trial size of PeraGlow, but I also received a trial size of a product I did not order, PrimeBloom. I have since been charged for both trial sizes $4.95 each plus $119.68 and $127.09, respectively. I am requesting a refund of $119.68 and $127.09, respectively, and any other charges stopped immediately as I have not given permission to charge my credit card other than for the ONE initial trial size product – $4.95. I have already contacted my credit card provider and advised them of this company.

    • thank you, thank you. I was so very upset when I realized I had been duped. The day after I agreed to try their sample I was watching the TV show City Line and Tracy Moore the host advised all listeners that there was a scam and to watch for it . One day too late. I did however take your advise and immediately got on the phone and cancelled my credit card. If they by any chance have already charged my credit card I will advise my credit card company and phone my bank. Any way you look at it, I am not giving them a nickel, let alone hundreds of dollars as it appears so many have. This outfit should be put out of business. Also surprised to learn they are a U.S. Company.

  7. I ordered a sample to try it out. A month later I see charges on my Visa of close to $300 which I never authorized. I called Visa and was told to call their customer service which i did (1-866-201-1963) …of course I was given the run around – lots of confusing info including that I ‘signed up’ …no I didn’t!! Agent was talking way to fast so I made her slow down and then proceeded to ask her 1 question at at time (I tape recorded the conversation which should help when I contact Visa next). What I was told is that the product is on its way and when it arrives that I’m to call them again. Not sure why but next step is to return the product. Once they receive it apparently I am to get a full refund. We’ll see. I’m glad I hung in there cause at first the agent told me I would only be getting 50% back (perhaps this is the case if I refuse the package; I don’t know). Anyway – what a hassle. This is nothing but a scam – a crooked business run by dishonest crooked people. DO NOT DEAL WITH THIS COMPANY!

  8. Definitely a scam. When you call to cancel the product they do everything they can to have you keep the product by first offering you a 50% discount if you keep the product, and when you still say no, they come back with another offer of a 75% discount on the $90 plus dollar item and based on what I was told over the phone (here in Canada where I would expect to be charged Canadian Dollars) the charges are in US dollars. No more late night shopping for me.

  12. Dido to all above, a complete scam. Tried to cancel before it was even shipped, of course the email address came back not legit. Received a phone call from shipping to confirm address, said I would be cancelling so no need to confirm. Called the number given to me from shipping only to be told it had already been shipped? Said I wanted to cancel was told I had to wait the 18 days to try the product. Said I’d return it unopened, was told it would be “in my best interest” to call after. They would not even give me the return address! Please don’t fall for it, now I have to go through my bank to make sure these con artists don’t access to my banking information.

  13. I called to return unopened cream and told to send it to PO box1300. Toronto M3J 0L4 and include order and Rma # which they gave me. Is this legitimate? I don’t want to spend $12.00 if it isn’t. Has anyone else tried this?

    Reply
    • I too was scammed. I packaged it all up to return then had a good look at the address. It looked peculiar, as if it was only half of an address. So I went searching for this on the internet. The postal code M3K 0L4 does not exist. Don’t bother sending it! And the phone number does not exist. So I don’t know how they are making and receiving calls !

      I plan to call them up again tomorrow and give them a piece of my mind. I am also going to contact my bank and the police.

      • It is a scam…i tried fedex-ing and it couldn’t be delivered. I called Peraglow and they wouldn’t give me a physical street address. They said that Canada Post delivers to it daily. I’m not sure I believe them. To be safe I have cancelled my credit card and requested a new one so that they can’t charge me. Once the package comes back to me from fedex I will try Canada post.

  14. I ordered 2 different items from this company.. they apparently give 4 days for delivery..and then your 14 day trial starts… this free trial is not free … on the 18 th they charged my CC for $128.00 for one cream and $109.00 for other one… so the 14 day free trial is false advertising… they claim to have been on dragons den thats a LIE.. a buch of scammers the cream is garbage claiming it works immediately… contact your CC Company mine was well aware of this scam

    • make sure you call the customer service and you tell them you will send the product back for a FULL refund as they can do so.. DO NOT let them convince you for 50% of your money back because they CAN give u full refund as long as u send the products back.. they are scammers so do not let them pursue you like 50% of ur money is all they can do, they are a bunch of bullshitters

  17. Complete scam, always read reviews first especially on a site that is not popular or familiar.. they do not warn you about the 14 day trial and I was left paying 250 CANADIAN dollars for 2 TRIAL sizes..completely not worth it and the “third party” customer service representatives don’t help at all, they don’t answer your questions specifically and create a way of lying so that they can keep ur money. Its overall complete BS. This website should not even be running especially after all the bad and negative experiences people have had with this company, clearly everyone is having the same issues and this company should be taken down immediately after scamming a bunch of people and nobody else is dragged into this shit!

  18. I ordered this through Facebook and it was connected to an ad that featured Madonna. It said that her daughter wanted to start her own cosmetics company and Mom decided she would help her out as she had lots of contacts in the business. She hired all the best chemist’s etc etc to develop this product. So dumb me thought that if Madonna was promoting this product for her daughter it must be good, hence I signed up for the FREE trail and nowhere did it say I’d be billed for the next shipment or that I would have to cancel if I was unhappy with the product. So I guess I’ve been duped too as I’m reading all these comments! Boy do I feel stupid. I’m cancelling my credit card right away!!!

    Reply
  19. I also fell trap to this – paid for the free trial of Peraglow and also ended up getting and paying shipping for a PrimeBloom, which I know I didn’t order. I found out this morning about the recurring subscription, so quickly picked up the phone to cancel my subscription. I was 1 day off my 14-day trial ending. They sent me an individual email for each of the brands saying they were both cancelled and I would no longer be charged or receive further shipments. I think got a second email for each saying I need to return the product to PO Box 1300. I’m skeptical of this address. Do I need to actually spend the shipping money on returning my free trial samples or do I just call and warn my bank in case another charge appears? I figure if I have the cancellation email, then that is enough proof that the charge shouldn’t be be going through again. Also noticed the company name that was on my credit card is different than PeraGlow and PrimeBloom, so how do I prove it’s them if another charge reappears?

    • Just spoke with customer service today and cancelled any future orders within the 14 day cancellation period. They treat you like some illiterate person when in fact, they are the people who don’t understand
      On checking out the internet, I found they are using the same comments and pictures that are advertised by Kate Middleton (Duchess of Cambridge) and Dr. Oz. Only changing to show Some of the women who were hosts of Breakfast Television.
      Will not supply an email address, I am supposed to see credit by September 4th.

    • All, this is a big scam. I suggest that you cancel the credit card that you used for the “free trial.” I called the company within the 14 days to cancel because it was suspicious, they then told me I was enrolled in a monthly subscription and were trying to give me a discount on the product they shipped…first 50% off then 75% off. I threatened them with going to the BBB and told them it was a scam. They sent an email confirming that my subscription has been canceled. I don’t believe them so made my credit card company aware of it and canceled my card to avoid being billed for more product that I don’t want!

  20. This is a complete scam.
    I was told it was $2 for the trial and then I received an email confirmation for $51 which included an entire skin kit that I specifically said I did not want to purchase. The lady on the phone was Lisa- employee # 41377 (if that is even a legitimate #). When I called to refund the purchase I was given 5 different discount options after indicating I wanted the total amount refunded. Very sleazy.

    Reply
  21. Looked at reviews and thought it was a great chance to try it having to just pay for the shipping and decide if I like it. But nope, you get stuck either with the shipping to mail it back or at least pay $30 to keep it. There is no risk free trial- you buy it either way. I don’t usually try things I see online but I did after it got some media attention. I won’t do that again. They are making money off everyone who is stupid enough to try it. Don’t know the long term benefits but just how this was all rigged I wouldnt buy it or recommend it

I CALLED THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE LINE AND SPOKE WITH DESHAWN WHO WAS AS RUDE AS HIS SUPERVISOR LUZ. WHO REFUSED TO GIVE THEIR LAST NAME OR A PROPER MAILING ADDRESS EXCEPT FOR A PO BOX. COURIER NEEDS A STREET ADDRESS TO DELIVER TO; HOWEVER THEY REFUSED TO GIVE ONE.

  26. I ordered my trial sample (the only cost was 4.95 for shipping). I expected a small sample size but instead received a jar along with a letter telling me I’d be receiving a jar a month unless I called to cancel. I did that right away and spent 20.00 to have the jar shipped back! This is a scam! Not only is there no address on the letterhead, their email address is a ‘no reply’ one. Incidentally, I only ordered the sample because I was led to believe the product was one that Marilyn Denis was selling. The use of her name made me think the company was legitimate.

    • Do NOT order these products!!! It’s a complete SCAM! They charge you over $100 CAD for each free trial they send you within 14 days of when you get the product and they’ll keep charging you without sending you more items.I spoke with MONTE in the Tampa Bay Customer Service center and he refused to give me his bosses contact information. This company should be ashamed of themselves!

  27. BUYER BEWARE!!

    DO NOT proceed with the trial offer(s). First off, the charges are US and not Canadian.

    They make it very difficult to cancel the order. Once you sign up for the trial, you will automatically receive monthly shipments and your credit card is automatically charged.

    I was required to have my Visa card changed as this was the only way I was able to stop shipment.

    Not only was Visa aware they reversed all charges without quesioning me, that surprised me.

I am humiliated I got sucked in by $4.95.

  33. Definitely a scam all the way through.

    BAD PRODUCT- POOR LOGISTICS- HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE – EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL- WORST OF ALL THEY FIND LAME EXCUSES TO NOT PAY BACK.

    The offer was on LinkedIn as a free trial but they charged full amount anyway after 21 days and continued charging the credit card even after the first month.

    I tried the product and started getting breakout. I called back and requested a refund. They asked me to ship it back which I had to pay from my own pocket. 40 days later I called up and they said they had to check the tracking number – but their website kept crashing and they couldn’t check. I had to call back 4 times – over a period of 1 week before they could “check” whether the package had been received (which according to my own tracking number had been received 37 days before I made my follow up call).

    After all that they issued a refund and deducted “shipping charge” for each item separately even though they shipped both items in the same package!!???
