The product, Alore skin lotion, used unclear directions in advertising how much product would be sent. The product was advertised as a 14 day free sample, implying 14 days of free product, consumer would pay only shipping and handling.
When I signed up for the free sample, I thought I would receive 14 days worth of product and would not be sent a full sized container unless I wrote back that I wanted a full sized container. Sheesh, that was dumb.
So since I was not expecting another package, I didn't see the next package arrive in the mail. I did see two charges on my bank statement for $94.28. I called Alore and told them that I didn't have the second bottle and didn't want a second bottle and why was I charged for the free sample? They told me I had received a total of 3 bottles and had been charged $94.28 for each of them. After looking, I found all three bank charges plus charges for the first shipping and handling of $2.97 plus $.75 currency exchange.
I said I would send back any additional bottles that I found in their mailers and I wanted my money back. Alore claims that the product is mailed from a sterile lab and therefore no product can be returned. I was shocked and disbelieving but was told that there was no one else with whom to pursue the issue, it is company policy. I cancelled any future orders at that time.
I sleuthed about with my son and found the two more mailers with product, just as they said had been delivered. Now I have spent $286.56 for three bottles of a product that I don't want and will take me five years to use up. Crummy story. Lets get our money back. Thank you for any help.
