Keep away from Au Nue Youth Restore and its eye counterpart Au Nue Under Eye Serum because they are both pathetic scams! In this short review I’m going to expose these products for what they really are: A ‘Hydra’-like scam production similar to previously-exposed skin care scams Inherent Beauty and HR-Cream!
Before we go further, please know that both Au Nue Youth Restore and Aue Nue Under Eye Serum were created in May 2014. If you look at their websites, you’ll notice that they basically have the same design. They also contain similar info, except for some minor adjustments to fit the profile of the product being advertised.
Now let’s dig in.
What is Au Nue Youth Restore?
Au Nue Youth Restore is supposedly an anti-aging cream designed to make you ‘look 10 years younger.’ It claims to be ‘clinically formulated’ to ‘rejuvenate your skin’ in a manner that is ‘unmatched by any other product.’
Au Nue Youth Restore boasts of having ‘the highest quality luxury ingredients available’, which were carefully blended to guarantee ‘keeping your skin young and beautiful for decades to come.’
Concerning the ingredients, we are told that Au Nue Youth Restore contains pearl protein and ‘pure 24 karat gold.’ These two substances are widely used in skin care products and they both have good effects on the skin.
What About Au Nue Under Eye Serum?
Au Nue Under Eye Serum is basically the same as Au Nue Youth Restore, except for the added info that it is specially formulated for use on the skin around your eyes. It claims to ‘rejuvenate’ the skin around your eyes by:
- Decreasing eye wrinkles by 90%
- Increasing its moisture by 83% and
- Increasing its elasticity by 78%.
Au Nue Under Eye Serum ingredients include pearl protein, gold, sea weed extract and nicotinamide (Vitamin B3). These substances are widely used in skin care.
That said, Au Nue Youth Restore and its eye counterpart are still scams! Here is why:
1. Au Nue Youth Restore and Under Eye Serum are Owned By A Shady Company
The Terms and Conditions pages of Au Nue Youth Restore and Au Nue Under Eye Serum both state that the products are owned and marketed by one Skin For Life Limited. This company never disclosed its address, but I did my own investigation and here are my findings:
- Skin For Life Ltd is registered in two countries: New Zealand and UK. The New Zealand address is 442 Waiuku-otaua Road, R D 2, Waiuku, South Auckland. According to the info available online, this company was registered in March 2000. Using Google Street View revealed that this company has a building at the outskirts of the city. But judging from the information on NZLBusiness.com, the company seems to have ceased operations.
- There are two UK addresses of Skin Care For Life Ltd. The first address belongs to the owners of this website SkinForLife.co.uk, but they are not the owners of the Aue Nue products. The second address is 20-22 Wenlock Road, London, England, N1 7GU. This address was registered in April 2016 by one Barbara Bayani, a Filipino woman who currently lives in the Philippines. I located the address using Google Street View, and take a look at what I found.
Bottom Line: Since the Skin For Life Ltd name is shared by three seemingly unrelated companies and the Skin For Life Ltd we’re looking for did not provide any physical address to identify it, there is no way of knowing exactly what company we are dealing with. This essentially means that we are dealing with a shady company … a situation you should avoid at all costs!
2. Fake Testimonials with Stock Photos!
All the testimonials featured on Au Nue Youth Restore and Under Eye Serum are either stock or stolen photos, aka fake! Let’s start with Au Nue Youth Restore.
- ‘Dr Richard S.’ from Dallas, Texas is a stock photo that has been used in a lot of scam medical sites. I didn’t find this particular photo on any stock photo site, but you can see all the doctor photos taken using the same model on Shutterstock.com and 123RF.com.
- ‘Renee S.’ from Chicago, USA is a stock photo that belongs to OJO Images and Getty Images. It has also been used in several scam websites with different names attached to it.
- ‘Linda C.’ from Vancouver, Canada is a stolen photo of a woman named Mary Mullet-Flynn;
- ‘Nora N.’ from Bristol, UK is a stock photo you can buy at Getty Images.
Concerning Au Nue Under Eye Serum:
- ‘B. Kane’ from Wichita, USA is a stock photo from Fotosearch.com;
- ‘A. Rowe’ from London, England is a stock photo you can buy at BigStockPhoto.com;
- ‘S. Corcoran’ from Chapel Hill, USA is a stock photo you can buy at Shutterstock, Dreamstime, Deposit Photos and Think Stock.
3. NOT ‘Free’ Trials!
If you check both websites of Au Nue Youth Restore and Under Eye Cream, you’ll notice that there is no info about pricing, but just a form urging you to sign up for a ‘free trial.’ Please don’t be deceived because there is NOTHING free about this offer!
This is from the Terms and Conditions page of Au Nue Youth Restore:
We have a special program designed for you. Order now and we will ship you two units each containing 30 days supply of AU NUE Youth Restore. Simply pay for 20 days of the first unit and pay for the second unit in 30 days at a 33% discount after you have tried the product. Thereafter we will continue to ship you a 30 day supply at a 33% discount and free shipping every 30 days…
The full retail price for one unit (30 Day Supply) of AU NUE Youth Restore is €159.99 in Europe, $159.99 in the United States, $219.99 in Australia, $219.99 in Canada, £143.99 in the United Kingdom and $249.99 in New Zealand.
So as you can see, once the 14-day trial period expires, you’ll automatically be added to an auto-ship program and billed $159.99 per bottle every 30 days. Now how ‘free’ is that?
From the Terms and Conditions page of Au Nue Under Eye Serum:
The Free 14 Day Trial option gives you 14 days of product free with the purchase of two bottles containing a total supply of 60 days for which you will be billed for 46 days.
After this trial period expires, you’ll then be billed $110 per bottle. There is no talk about an auto-ship program, but feedback from those who fell for this scam indicate that the ‘free trial’ form is actually a concealed payment form!
Final Conclusion: Au Nue Youth Restore, Au Nue Under Eye Serum are Both SCAMS!
Blacklisted Websites: AuNueAntiAge.com, OfficialAuNueSerum.com, AuNueUnderEye.com, Try.RevitifySkin.com
There are other scam evidence littered all over these scams: First, the reminder on top of the pages telling you that there is a limited supply due ‘high demand’ for the products. Ignore it, because it is a script coded to display the current date anytime you visit the website in order to put pressure on you to buy the product. And then there is this very annoying pop up on Revitify Skin offering you a coupon in what is supposed to be a free trial!
Feel free to use the comments if you have a contribution to make. Also don’t forget to share this review. Spread the word so that this scam will be put out of business!
