Very professional chap introducing this unreconstructed Neanderthal to this product. My natural scepticism kept the $’s in my grubby mitts. If something seems too good to be true it usually is; at this price my ambivalence won hands down.
Good product, horrible staff.
I was in Highpoint getting shoes for work when this lady catches my eye and pushes this free sample into my hands. I was polite and said I have to go. She is asking all these questions and doing my nails when I didn’t ask. She basically forced me to buy this product I can’t afford saying “I will discount it”. She is then trying to push more products on me. It seems like it works well getting rid of dead skin but horrible way to sell products. Are these people trained this way? I am actually scared to walk in that entrance of the mall again. Horrible bullying.

Ok product but horrific company
The product itself is nice to use but I’m not convinced it does what the sellers tell you it does, but also NOT worth the $160 price tag or the absolute bullying you receive to purchase it. I’ve read other reviews from different locations and they have all been identical to my experience. I was lured to try a tester and me being too kind to say no I said ok I’ll take a tester, and the lady dragged me to a seat and made me sit for her to put products on me. I had both of my small children with me in a pram who were obviously upset and wanting me...to keep walking but she kept pressuring me to stay. She ended up testing this product on my hand and I was moderately impressed but told her I couldn’t afford it. That’s when she offered me a free facial, and I told her no I can’t I have to take my kids home. She walked over to her boss and whispered soemrhing to him and then comes back to me and she literally takes her phone asked for my NUMBER and says she will text me so I have a way to contact her and book in for a free facial when I’m kid free. I foolishly believed her and gave into her pressuring and bought the stupid product hoping to at least get a nice facial out of it. Sure enough I text her the next day to book in a time and no reply. I walk past her at the stall every time I’m in Westfield geelong and feel sick to my stomach that I wasted the last of my money on something she conned me into buying. Seriously people don’t buy from this brand!!!

Manipulative if you see in a shopping centre RUN
Horrible manipulation from the sales people, had the same experience as other users, I was dragged into a stall and told to try the product on my hands, then was shown how after using the peel the moisturiser sinks in more, only he didn’t think I noticed on the hand with product on he put a dab of moisturiser and on the other he put quadruple the amount? When I pointed it out to him I was told ‘no no darling it just soaks in that much better using our Manuka honey scrub!’ Then when I kept refusing he kept lowering And lowering the price. Blatan...tly using dishonest tactics to push the sale by using different amounts of product and lying about it. Do not deal with this people they are dishonest and obviously not selling a high end product if they can halve the price and then some when you refuse.
Pushy sales guy in Sydney (Parramatta Westfield) but great product!
Pushy sales guy in Sydney (Parramatta Westfield) but great product! My bad I rubbed it hard on my face and skin peeled lot more lol .. so just rub gently. Has made a lot of difference to my pores and overall complexion. I use it once a week. Long lasting and worth the buy. Still I would say it’s expensive! Got it for $80 or so. Please bring down the price in light of you having pushy sales people and negative feedbacks below

Psychopathic sales person
I feel compelled to write a review despite quite some time has passed, as I see how others have had the same unpleasant sales technique experience. So it’s obviously still happening which means the company is either not managing this or approves of it.
I actually bought two products at the time, the peel being one of them, at the Hobart mall. I must say I felt mentally battered after the experience. Even after buying two products the sales person wouldn’t let me go, nearly physically obstructing me from leaving. He talked fast and just wouldn’...t stop. I noticed similar comments from others as I looked up the company’s website with the intention of buying another peel. Today I found my jar at the back of the cupboard and it still had a bit left over. So I used it and despite several years gone by, it still worked wonderfully. But finding the jar immediate reminded me how awful I felt at the time and quite some time after! I actually had to become angry to get away from this man, not that this put him off... The product itself is great. Product 5 star, experience -5.
The approach technique used by your consultant at Westfield Geelong was what I found to be very suggestive to myself. One comment was Would I rather the product or himself. I also find it very concerning the difference in pricing that people get offered for the product at different stores reading other reviews . I was told for $200 I could get the Manuka gel. Online at origani it's $165. On eBay it's $140. I was also offered the same product from the consultant for $100 dollars as the box it was in had a little mark on it .

Hi, I want to support [name removed] comments and endorse everything she has written in her review. I was unlucky enough to come across the same saleswoman at Bergamo airport, with the same sales pitch and bizarre approach. I felt totally belittled, patronised and taken for a ride. Shame really as I could have quite liked the product. For sure I will never fall for this trick again!

Dangerous mental salespeople.
I was approached by this woman at the airport who made me buy the honey when I simply said "ok" to another question. She prepared the package and gave it to me. At that point I was like.. Alright. I was stupid and bought it. After this, she's like "you're so lucky because today we have our acne expert here with us! " , this italian-canadian very mean lady who tried at all costs to sell me anything else she could, even trying to play with my psychology. She lied about her position, said that she works at the Canadian embassy and that she was the...re because she wants everyone to have perfect skin. Then she goes like "my husband is a psychiatric, I can read you. You suffered a lot from the past. Your mom loves you but envies you at the same time, she's jealous of your youth" At that point I was total what the hell and left. These people are dangerous, this brand should shut down. Please share the message.

Was pushed to buy this product because of an exclusive "student discount" still paid a high price for it. The product is not amazing and would not recommend buying it!

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.
