I am always immediately charged for my items, but then I don't receive them. Their shipping policy is 7-10 business days; however, I wait more than a month to receive my shipment or never receive it at all. If it happens once, it's understandable...but this is the third time I have not received a shipment because it is "Stuck in Memphis, Tennessee". In Tennessee every time? Really? For a month? I can't believe a shipping company would be this negligent...and only in Memphis. Their product is meh, Ok...but definitely not worth this hassle. There are better products out there.
Nu Skin refunded the charged amount plus compensated $40 for additional fees accumulated in the process.
NuSkin Pharmanex in Provo, Utah charged my business bank account $335.79 yesterday. I had never heard of the company, and even less have I ordered anything from them. I have contacted my bank, the BBB and the Utah Attorney General. Stay as far away from this business as you can. I had never had anything to do with them and they stole over $300 of my money. I do not know how they acquired my debit card number - that is something that also should be investigated.

Purchased Lumispa on 5.29, used it about 3 weeks and it broke on a reason I have no clue on. There's no way I can get this repair but only through Nu Skin, so I contact nu skin for a repair and they request to send the broken lumispa for replacement. Waited a month. Haven't heard anything from them so I contact them and they told me they are out of stock and will ship on July 8. It's July 13 and haven't heard any further news on it and I contacted them again and they are saying they do not know when it will be shipped.. I request for a refund and they said that's not possible. What the ** is this company? They don't even have a repair tech in the company? What kind of business model are you guys providing for the people who are doing business with you guys and selling your products to the consumers. They will be a scammer working with this company. This company is a joke.
I have placed order back in June 15, $300 was charged full price, then didn't get all what I paid for today we are in July and I still don't have lumi I ordered, numerous phone calls, it was supposed to shop 06/30 was told they had to place new order and they are on back order now till 06/30....No confirmation, called back again, it wasn't reordered when I called the first time, they place the order and added expedite, still was told it will ship 06/30...Nope no confirmation, called back again, now I am told they are out of them, and they have no idea when it will be available, many people I know having the same issues, getting different items, not what they ordered, have to ship them back!
I love the products but this company needs to get things fixed! And yes I am talking about NU SKIN located in Utah, USA....So everyone here I can tell they are talking about NU SKIN not the other company someone mentioned!!! I am rep for this company but stepping down, because of this! I won't share with others, not worth the stress!
This company has absolutely changed my life! Not only do I feel like I have more energy and stamina than I ever have since taking their nutritionals, my skin and hair has NEVER looked and felt better. Their products are backed by years of research and science. They have 75+ scientists on staff at all times and their products set the bar high. Everything goes through a strict 6-step process to make sure it is pure, clean, and safe. Their customer service is some of the best I've ever experienced and their headquarters is right here in the USA. I am so thankful that I came across this company 2.5 years ago! Thank you, Nu Skin!
First time heard a company send me the double order I thought was I accidentally click twice so I receiving two same order cause I order the mask so didn’t bother to check or return. Even I order double I’ll finish it. A week later Nu Skin call me. Said they sent me the double order. Ask me to return it back which I don’t as long as they charged twice so I asked for return label and let carrier to pick up the order. But they told me I have to bring it to Fedex to drop it off. Makes me feel like I’m the one who made mistakes of this order. He Told me Keep the two mist as gift. I told them no. I’m not asking for benefit but I’m not happy with a company making the mistake and ask for customers to recover it cause I have no fault on it.
The same day that I ordered this company's free trial offer for just pay shipping to try their product. I called and cancelled. However, I didn't get a cancellation number and I am not sure it would of mattered. Their site says accredited with many consumer organizations such as the BBB, they're not. I didn't receive their skin cream and eye serum and a week later before trial period was up, They deducted $79 and $71 out of my account.
I called them to dispute this and was told that they would refund me 25%, which was $14 and $12. Their site says 100% money back guarantee. This is a SCAM! And honestly, I am concerned about what truly is in their product. I am still trying to get a cancellation #. And although, I cancelled my bank card, because I authorized this transaction, they will be able to continue to charge me until I have proof of cancellation.
My account went negative and my house payment was returned. My husband is a Vet and was sent home from hospital on oxygen. I don't know what I can do except close my bank account that we have had for 18 yrs. My bank has filed a dispute and in 10 days they will put the charges back, but unless the dispute is in my favor, they could reverse the credit given. This company is misleading. BEWARE!
I have been using products from Nu Skin enterprises for a while now and I have seen amazing results. My opinion of Nu Skin before was skeptical because I had heard negative feedback. I have had fantastic results both for my skin and my hair. I haven’t had any allergic reactions like I typically have had with other products. I highly recommend Nu Skin for people to try it out.
Beware. Don’t be fooled - you go to a very fancy place to watch videos on how to onsell the products to your family, friends and colleagues. Then you have to purchase Nu Skin products and try to flog them off. Very hard when they are overpriced and you can get similar products at a more reasonable price. THEN when you realise you are stuck with their products you have to tell your friend how good it is in the home they will buy something. They give you the odd free product to keep you interested. Not worth losing friends to support a few rich fat cats at the pointy end of the pyramid. Just like Amway. A con.
I am seeing all these reviews. It just makes your face shiny and tight.. BUT so can washing your body with soap and water. You can choose to be fooled about Nu Skin products, or you can fall victim to their ridiculous useless products. Totally up to you. Use your common sense.
