Atrociously pushy sales but good product
The sales process was pushy and they put a lot of pressure on me to buy the product. I was only 20 when I was persuaded into buying this product and after many objections from me the lady's persistence eventually led to me spending around $500 on products. I felt almost bullied into buying these products and had hardly bought anything for the expense. The sales lady kept offering me 'special discounts' making a big show of asking for permission from her manager to offer me such 'low prices' however after looking online I discovered I had paid a...lot more than their online RRP. Despite the horrible store experience I really enjoyed their products. The manuka honey peel and cleanser leave me feeling soft, smooth and fresh faced. It removes any dead skin nice and smoothly. Unfortunately due to the sales techniques I question the authenticity of the product. I really hope they improve the in store experience for customers as that is the only reason I don't want to buy the products again and support the company.
Belongs In Everyones Regimen
Its has almost been 2 months since I started using the Manuka Honey Peel and I have had such a good experience going all the way back to when I first bought it. The staff were incredibly friendly to me and helped me find exactly what I wanted/needed, which was a good exfoliator. My skin has improved drastically since using. My skin looks smoother, brighter, younger and most importantly I FEEL BETTER about my skin. I love it
Best product ever! Love the ERDA range~!
The first time I bought 3 sets of Indulgence pack was in Garden city. This time I was asked to give a feedback on the products when I purchased again the second time. This time, 5 Manuka honey peels along with a Luxury kit. The product is excellent. King gives me the best price as always! I know I am a difficult lady but he has so much patience for me. Thank you so much for the service and product! I love Origani! <3
N o p e
There are 3 things I would like to point out:
1. The staff
A female staff was very pushy. Not to mention that she tricked us that the night cream was ‘free’ since we (my friend and I) are sixteen. We bought this Erda luxury kits that each costs around 420 AUD; this is including the ‘free’ night cream. However, when I came home and checked the price online, I saw that the Erda luxury kit costs 305 AUD and the night cream costs 160 AUD. If the night cream was ‘free’, we would not have paid 420 AUD each. It’s a marketing trick thing so for tho...
Go to buy this! Fantastic!
Really awesome product! Got the Manuka Honey as part of the indulgence collection I purchased at Canberra Centre. Love the products, the manuka honey gives me a great feeling of freshness, I have always suffered from redness on my face and can really see how the product is helping to lighten up my skin tone.
The service at Canberra centre was great and they educated me about all the benefits of Manuka honey which was brilliant. thanks to the wonderful team for introducing me to this wonder :-)
Has Really Helped Me and My Skin
To those who have sensitive skin (like me) and it gets irritated very easily, Manuka Honey Peel is a good product for you. It doesn't dry up your face after multiple uses. It moisturizes your face and keeps it looking healthy and clean. I personally was recommended this product because of my acne scars and now I can say It really helped my skin erase the acne scars and also brightens my skin tones and makes it look and feel so smooth. I used it anywhere from 3-4 times per week; It is a great product and I'm really happy I found something that works for me. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Its the perfect exfoliating mask I have ever used.
Burnt my skin
I accepted the free hand lotion sample and was encouraged into the shop with the mention of further samples. I’m always open to looking at new products. The peel was demonstrated on the back of my hand then moisturiser applied. I sat through the sales pitch, politely declined to purchase product and left. About 10 minutes later the skin on my hand started to burn and sting where the peel had been applied. I immediately rinsed my hand with fresh water and washed my hands asap. Be careful.
A total rip off and pushy sales staff!
Me and my husband was invited inside their store by one of their sales rep by offering a hand cream sample. I read one of the reviews by other people experiencing the same thing. Once inside the store this lady shows me a demo of the product on my hand. I liked the feeling but when she told the price I instantly knew it was not worth the price. So i said I don't want it. Thats when she becomes pushy. She's asking my husband to try it too. Saying it's unisex. Claiming she sees a difference on his skin. And to make it worse she wants me to try ...it on my face. I refused because I have extremely sensitive skin which easily gets irritated so much that i only use purely organic products from Lush cosmetics only. But shes still persistent says it's all organic and won't irritate. So i let her do it. And guess what! It does irritate my skin. It was an overall a very bad experience. If you want to save your time and money do not get lured in by their sales staff!
Finally, A Product That Does What It Says!
I've been dealing with acne for over 10+ years + oily skin. So you can imagine the acne scars/hyperpigmentation my skin has. I've used TONS of facial scrubs/masks that claim that it brightens your skin so believe me when I tell you this is the BEST and worth-your-money exfoliating mask I've ever used. My acne scars lighten almost immediately after use. My skin is seriously so smooth (Before I had to exfoliate almost every night or else my foundation does not go on smoothly) after just one use. The next morning, my skin looks so good! Acne scars are less red and my face is so smooth. I always use less foundation the next morning too. Love love love it.
I Wish I Had This Years Ago
I really wish I would have had the Manuka Honey Peel this years ago as it would have saved me so much money, time, stress and tears. This is the exfoliator my skin has desperately needed. Removing all my dead skin, makeup and dirt allowing new skin to appear. My skin feels great and the results speak for themselves.
Refund given as my skin was too sensitive.
I had a very positive experience with the team in the Melbourne CBD. I purchased products and my skin reacted to them. The staff happily gave me a full refund. I have listened to the team in the Melbourne CBD store talk to many customers and they are thoughtful, courteous and not pushy. They stated that they would hate to think that I had paid money for a product I could not use. I thank them for their customer service and their understanding.
I Dont Even wear Make Up Anymore!
This is by far, the best face cleanser I have ever used. I have always had problems with my skin and when I started using the manuka honey, I rarely experience any breakouts. It has gotten to the point where I don't even wear face makeup anymore. Im so happy about this as before I had to use so much make up and now I don't even have to buy it anymore. I am in Singapore and have only had pleasant experiences with the staff here. If someone asks me to by something I don't want, I just say NO and its over. Highly Recommend the Manuka Honey!
Scam and worst product!
Not to mention the pushy sales. Do not trust the other 5 star comments. I dare you to apply the peel and leave it longer on your face and you will notice the side effect. No skincare product in anyway should harm the skin. I'm not allergic to anything but after i apply this product on my face and wash it after it dry, i feel pain on some area like burnt where i apply and there are 'some white plastic' stuck to your face. I'm from Malaysia and i cant believe this kind of scam actually exist and are allowed in Australia.
Stuck to my face
Terrible. This was forced on me by pushy sales people
Stuck on my face and left bits I couldn’t get off for days
Stung to remove
Total waste of money
Finally Have Consistently Clear Skin
At 28 years old, I finally have consistently clear skin and I couldn't be happier. . I have also noticed a reduction in blackheads and the size of my pores. Throughout my life I have always struggled with blemishes, dryness and un-even skin tones I do also follow up with the Erda night cream which I feel is the perfect combination to improve my skin.
In conclusion; this stuff has changed my life and I will buy it until I die.
Questions & Answers
Is it safe to use when its already expired?
Just used my open bottle again (expiring on 2021) after a couple of months & surprised that after 10 seconds, no dead cells came off like before when I rinsed it off with warm water. I also saw my skin tightened in the horizontal direction that I applied the gel. Was I supposed to massage it first before dead cells come off?? Am guessing that I bought it late 2018 or mid 2019? Is the tightening the effect of expired product?
I bought a luxury facial collection after being assured it will last me a year. I was in a very vulnerable state emotionally and feel I was massively taken advantage of. May I say your sales team seem to be like MLM representatives with the ethics described on this forum. I am having second thoughts about using the products now.
Please tell me of your training processes and why your representatives are so goddamned slippery smooth and pushy. I suspect a commission basis as a matter of course. This is why I never buy commercial products. I should have stuck with health food store products. At least I feel assured of their ethics.
I’m sure they last a year if you use it sparingly like just 2 times a month, which I have been doing as advised by the Sales Rep I bought it from. But please don’t commit yourself to buying anything if you’re not fully convinced before buying. This goes for any product you buy
Hope this was helpful
Thank you Jenny. I was advised to use it 1 - 2 times a week.
Anyway, I’m over this particular freak out anyway. I do like the effect it had on my skin after first usage.
