The little ads are everywhere on the internet: get “one weird trick” for wrinkle cream. I’ve seen them on Facebook, and even few major news sites. Clicking on the ads take you to a story of how an ordinary mom used two products called “Bliss Radiance” and “Glow Crème” to look younger in just 2 weeks! You will also find impressive before and after shoot of hers.
Don’t fall for this really!
For the record, I am not saying that all all anti-aging products are scams – far from it. Many are great, and I’ve personally have great success with this product. However, if you think Bliss Radiance and Glow Crème is the cosmetic holy grail, you should look somewhere else. Here’s what I found that might shock you:
#1. The websites (eg.iweeklyhealth.com) that promote “Bliss Radiance” and “Glow Crème” appear to be legitimate consumer website. However, they far from genuine. First of all, the before-and-after pictures can be found on many other product websites, including:
http://beefacezone.blogspot.com/2013/05/mom-cut-20-years-in-week-using-this-1.html (product name: BellaGenix & Veloura)
http://www.youlivesmart.mobi/quigo/v21-(dermolyte-rejuvenex).html (Product name: Dermolyte & Rejuvenex)
http://smartlivingweekly.com/want-to-erase-wrinkles-clever-mom-uses-a-simple-5-trick/ (product name: Beautiskin & Kollagen Intensiv)
http://www.americanlifestylejournal.com/skin/08 (product name: Wrinkle Rewind)
The headlines of the website states “mom uses simple tricks to cut years in a week” – this, or other identical headlines have been used on many other phony wrinkle sites. And yes, the contents, pictures and users comments of these sites are very similar as well! These websites appear to be linked, under different name.
In addition, the operators of the website and merchants remain anonymous. I can’t find their contact and background information.
Bottom line is: the story and reviews are fake. These websites are carefully drafted to entice unsuspecting customers.
#2. On the order page of Blisscreams.com, you will see few trust seals and security seals, but none is clickable. Buyer beware.
#3. Bliss Cream is said to be “clinically proven”, as stated on its official website. The maker doesn’t not have any clinical data to back up the claims.
#4. The website claims there’s limited supply which is not true.
The truth about wrinkle cream: There are many lotions and supplements that claim to reduce wrinkles, reverse damage caused by sun, or slow down premature aging. The effectivness of these products depends on specific ingredients and how long you used them. However, if you are looking for instant facelift, you probably won’t find it in over-the-counter creams or pills. They don’t make the lines go away permanently.
To sum up: Stay away from Bliss Radiance and Glow Crème. The next time you come across these ads, remind yourself: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
