I signed up for that 'free' Nude By Nature trial that is always being advertised.
Anyhow, how it works is that they send the entire range to try, then if you don't send it back in 16 days they charge you $229. They explain this to you after they have already sucked you in with their 'free trial' offer.
They also charge you $9.95 postage and handling initially. I really only wanted to try the foundation, primer and finishing veil but you can't do it that way...You have to get the whole kit.
Anyway, I still decided to get it because the lady on the phone told me they were all full sized products, not sample sized. So I figured that I could just keep the products I wanted and sell the rest cheaply on ebay. That way I could recoup at least some of the money.
Anyway, the kit arrived yesterday and they ARE NOT full sized products. The foundation is 8g (full size is 15g), the bronzer is 4g (full size is 12g), and the finishing veil is 3g (full size is 12g). Plus none of those three were even in boxes.
I was planning on selling the bronzer because I don't use bronzer anyway, but nope, can't. Its only sample sized.
I wanted the foundation and finishing veil, but even if I really like them, they're only little sample sizes.
So I'd be paying $229 (getting maybe half that back on ebay) to find out that yes, I do like the foundation and finishing veil, but now I have to go out and spend more money on full size ones anyway???!!
So I rang them today to find out what was going on and I sat in queue for 10 minutes then got a recorded message telling me to leave my name and number and they would get back to me.
I left my name and number in the first place when I rang up about the trial and no one got back to me. I had to keep ringing. So the chances of them getting back to me this time are pretty slim.
I'm so p**sed off. I don't even want to try the products now. I just want to send them straight back. But if I do that I will be out of pocket $20 postage and handling for no good reason.
Anyway....I'm just writing this so that anyone else who is planning on getting this free trial knows exactly what they are getting. Because they DO NOT tell you that on the phone.
