The low quality of the plastic material on the machine surprised me from such a reputable brand in the world. With price and how effective of this machine, this low level damage should not happen. Disappointed.
The seller tried on my skin, after 2 hours had a skin breakdown, the seller knew about it, I bought the product knowing that it will work, but when I returned the product unused, box still intact, they didn't give me refund and took the product as well!!! What a shame a rip off from your company.. Taking it further to Department of Fair Trading.

The Company has great products! I love my toothpaste, foot cream and my in Home Spa! After using NuSkin for a couple of weeks, I could instantly feel and see a great difference in the texture of my feet and now I feel confident enough to walk around without socks, I tried a numerous of foot creams and products prior as well. Yes, their products will change your skin and you'll see new results less than a month if you don't forget to stay with it! NuSkin Could be better at promoting their products so more people could take advantage of these skin changing products! Every Company has its issues and their products are not ONE. You Pay Membership Pricing and You'll Get A Free Membership For Life!! For NuSkin Products --> **
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.
Lumispa is a must have device. I have being using lumispa for nearly two months now, and it does wonders for my skin. I have bad acne breakout, and I didn't like my skin looks. Since using lumispa, my skin feels smoother, minimizes appearance of pores and makes skin tight and refresh. I'm a Brand Affiliates for this company and if their products works for me it will also works for you too. Love my lumispa.
I purchased my Lumispa after watching a live video on FB because I have horrific acne breakouts. I purchased it on a Tuesday night and received it on a Thursday morning - exemplary delivery time. I was then contacted almost daily by the referrer to check that it works and that I was using it properly. I advised that I thought it was a bit faulty as it kept stopping and she shared a voice message and a live video demonstrating full and proper use - of course I didn't read the manual before using it - I am a reckless human. :)
I have taken photos of my face every few days and admit, I don't understand my body enough to realise the triggers for the breakouts but the lumispa session dries up or stops the breakout process and my face honestly feels like a 'baby's butt'. My next trial will be the supplements to help my high blood pressure. I have even considered signing up to join the business because I would only onsell something I believed actually works! My 5 cents for the day - be blessed, be safe, be kind. :)
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!
