Vitier Beauty (also referred to as Vitier Anti-Aging) is a cream that promises to make you look years younger and is a better alternative to costly surgery. They insist if you apply it every day Vitier Beauty will reduce wrinkles and puffiness, as well as hydrate and nourish your skin. The result, they claim, will be simply beautiful skin everyone will want to admire and/or kiss.
The Vitier Beauty Pitch
Vitier uses a lot standard tactics many companies use to get your name, address, phone, and credit card. First, they tempt you with promises of reducing wrinkles and making you look younger; however, they offer no concrete evidence of their claims except for a couple of Before and After photos, which models appear to be carefully lit and made up so they look better in the After.
Then they add urgency to their message by telling you to “Act Now” so they can “Rush” your Sample Bottle by filling out the form with your name and address, before you can even get to the order page (this way they still have your info to solicit you even if you decide not to buy).
Vitier Anti-Aging has several different websites (here and here for example) that elaborate slightly on its ingredients, but mostly just load on the hype. For example, in big letters they say “9 out of 10 Dermatologists recommend using anti-aging products” – note that these alleged 9 dermatologists don’t specifically mention Vitier Beauty or Vitier Anti-Aging.
How Vitier Beauty Works
Vitier Beauty mostly says it uses a “specially blended” formula with “scientifically proven” ingredients “derived from nature.” We did find a reference to one ingredient, a “hot” anti-aging peptide known as Matrixyl 3000 (aka palmitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7).
If you type in Matrixyl 3000 into a search engine, you will receive a lot of web pages and articles claiming this is a “miracle” ingredient that has been clinically proven to promote collagen growth, the stuff that makes skin youthful and spongy. The problem is, most of these are from websites who are trying to sell you products with the ingredient. (It has a similar name but is different than a another ingredient hyped-with-little-proof called simply Matrixyl.)
We couldn’t find any independent, unbiased, clinical studies that showed Matrixyl 3000 to be effective for replenishing collagen.
Vitier Beauty Costs…
$4.97 for a “trial” bottle but… after 14 days from date of order (not delivery) you will be charged $89.97 and shipped another bottle of Vitier Anti-Aging every 30 days and charged accordingly until you cancel. This is hidden in the fine print of the Terms and Conditions and what we refer to as a sneaky auto-ship program. It also states ominously “Subscription and Membership fees to the Site are subject to change at any time.”
They promise an Easy Cancel (and include a button on at least one website) but the fine print also says all orders must be canceled via telephone at 888-364-7963. Another thing that caught our eye was a “Negative Option Clause” which says you may also be liable for $94.94 per month.
The terms also state that any refunds are at the discretion of the company.
Bottom Line: Is Vitier a Scam?
Let’s take a little overview of what we have learned, shall we?
Vitier Beauty uses a generic website with no ingredient listing and unsubstantiated proof to back their anti-aging claims.
The fine print reveals you will be auto-shipped and charged at least $89.97 a month and may be on the hook for more money.
It may be very difficult to get a refund.
