About Bleu Sapphire

Bleu Sapphire is a new facial serum that’s claimed to work in minutes to reverse the aging process at the cellular level; keep your skin moist, healthy, and hydrated; smooth and brighten your skin; and to enhance and transform your skin in just minutes. In fact, Bleu Sapphire claims to be so effective that it will instantly “make your skin look angelic.”

In order to accomplish this, Bleu Sapphire is claimed to contain proprietary Biosphere, QuSome delivery, and Biofil spheres that can penetrate deeply into your skin, where they can release nutrients and capture trans-epidermal water loss. In addition, the Matrixyl 3000 contained in Bleu Sapphire is claimed to reduce facial muscle contraction and increases your skin’s stem cells.

You’ve reached a point in your life where you’re proud of all you’ve accomplished, but you may not look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside. Can Bleu Sapphire help you regain your youthful glow, or is it just an overpriced scam? Consider the following:

Welcome to the World of Trial-Based Anti-Aging Products

Over the last year or so, the HighYa team has noticed a big increase in the number of trial-based anti-aging products on the market, such as Bleu Sapphire, DermAktive, Nuvie Skin Care, AbsoluteDerma, and many more. And what do all these products have in common?

They’re only offered through free trials and autoship programs, and consumers often complain of difficulty cancelling trials/processing returns, low-quality products, and very high prices (we’ll talk more about this in a moment). While we provided an in-depth peek into this shadowy corner of the anti-aging industry in our article Exposing the Widespread Scam of Anti-Aging Products & Free Trials, suffice it to say that most of these products should be avoided altogether.

Admittedly, Bleu Sapphire may not fall into this category, but based on some big red flags, we have our doubts. Let’s take a look at why.

Is Bleu Sapphire Clinically Proven to Reduce the Signs of Aging?

In several areas on the Bleu Sapphire website, we’re told that the serum is “proven” to work, and even that it was shown to increase healthy stem cells by 92%, and to decrease surface wrinkles by 68%. However, as we’ve discussed with many of the other trial-based anti-aging products we’ve reviewed, there’s no mention of how these numbers were obtained (e.g. double blind clinical trial, or simply a user survey), and no results posted on the product’s website for review.

A screenshot of Bleu Sapphire's websiteWhere do these numbers posted on the Bleu Sapphire website come from?

Based on our experience, it’s our opinion that these numbers have no basis in reality, and are simply used to make you think the product is legitimate.

Will Bleu Sapphire’s Ingredients Provide Anti-Aging Results? 

While there isn’t a product label listed on the Bleu Sapphire website, we’re told that the serum contains:

  • Proprietary Biosphere
  • QuSome delivery
  • Biofil spheres
  • Matrixyl 3000 

There isn’t any information available online about Biosphere or Biofil spheres, although QuSome is an ingredient manufactured by Next Step Laboratories that’s claimed to contain “salicylic acid, AHAs, peptides, vitamins, botanical extracts, and synthetic molecules” that allow “active ingredients to become more efficacious and less irritating.” In other words, QuSome doesn’t appear to provide an anti-aging effects itself, but to make the other ingredients in Bleu Sapphire more available.

Matrixyl 3000 is manufactured by Sederma, and is claimed to contain palmitoyl tripeptide and a palmitoyl tetrapeptide that changes how skin cells communicate with one another. However, there isn’t any third-party clinical evidence for these claims on the product’s website. 

Bleu Sapphire’s Advertising Methods

In addition to providing no clinical evidence showing that their ingredients or products work as advertised, many trial-based anti-aging manufacturers will also use some less-than-stellar marketing tactics to convince you to buy.

In the instance of Bleu Sapphire, this includes claiming that it’s used by Hollywood celebrities to turn back the hands of time. As usual though, there is no third-party confirmation that any celebrities have used (or even heard of) Bleu Sapphire. In other words, it appears to be completely made up.

Finally, many trial-based anti-aging manufacturers will attempt to make you think that their products are in very high demand, and that there is only a limited supply available. However, in our experience, this is just a marketing ploy to cause you to make an emotional decision, versus an informed one.

A screenshot of Bleu Sapphire’s websiteIn our experience, this is almost certainly not the case.

Ok, so there’s no clinical evidence that Bleu Sapphire works as claimed, and the manufacturer appears to use some underhanded marketing techniques. But are consumers happy with the anti-aging serum? 

Bleu Sapphire’s Customers Don’t Speak Out

Bleu Sapphire is promoted only through a network of affiliates, who earn commissions from each sale of Bleu Sapphire they refer. Because these affiliates aren’t directly associated with the company though, they’ll often resort to misleading promotional techniques, such as posting fake online reviews that are designed with hopes to make you think you’re reading a legitimate customer review, when it’s actually just more marketing hype.

Outside of these, there weren’t any legitimate online customer reviews for Bleu Sapphire at the time of our research.

From a company perspective, Bleu Sapphire holds an F rating with the Better Business Bureau, despite having only 5 closed complaints (as of 3/14/15)—all of which referenced difficulties with the free trial/obtaining refunds. Let’s take a closer look at this.

Bleu Sapphire Pricing & Refund Policy

Bleu Sapphire is only available through a 14-day trial for $4.95, for which you’ll receive a 30-day supply of the serum. 

Once your trial expires, you’ll be billed $99.95 for the full price of the product, and will also be enrolled in the company’s autoship program. This means you’ll continue receiving a fresh supply of Bleu Sapphire once per month, and your credit card will be charged $99.95 each time.

Important note: As we’ve discussed many times, it’s our opinion that free trials are simply a way of obtaining your credit card number and all but ensuring that you’ll be charged full price, regardless of any actions you take. And once they have your credit card information, autoship programs are just a way to loop you into monthly recurring charges for a product you might not want in the first place.

Because of this, we generally recommend avoiding products sold only through these methods.

Outside of the trial, Bleu Sapphire comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges and a $15 per-unit restocking fee. In order to request a refund, cancel your trial, or stop your autoship enrollment, you’ll need to contact customer service at 800-859-2916 for an RMA number.

Will Bleu Sapphire Fight the Signs of Aging?

Chopping to the Point: Considering that there’s no clinical evidence available showing that Bleu Sapphire or its ingredients can help you look younger, in addition to its high price and autoship enrollment, leads us to believe that any benefits you’ll experience will be far out of line with the price you’ll pay.

    Scam. Costs $148 and PRIDE.

    • Las Vegas NV,
    • Nov 3, 2015

    Total scam. Wish I had read the reviews first. I got the Bleu Sapphire thinking I was paying $5.00 for a trial, but got billed $148. Auto renewal in the tiny tiny print. I called customer service and told them I had been scammed by them and wanted my money back. They told me to send it back and get a tracking number and I would get refunded. Five weeks came and went and no refund. I called them back with the tracking number and they said they had no record of it. Told me I couldn't prove I sent it back and I was out of luck. I said I was going to call my credit card company and dispute the charges. They then agreed to refund me my money. We will see if that happens. To be continued...

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    BS! Scam, Ripoff

    • Sonoma, CA,
    • Oct 20, 2015

    I received this product with the belief that I just paid for shipping and got to try the product. It arrived after 10 days. That day I was billed $148 for the product. I called, and they said there was a 10 day trial and if I was not satisfied I could ship it back at my cost. I decided not to keep the product at this point and paid to ship it back (so now I am out two directions of shipping and never got to try the product), I called after I tracked my shipment and was then told I was to pay a $10 restocking fee which would pay for destroying the product. This company is a waste of time and resources.

    I was not told in advance of either 10 day trial then $148 product cost, NOR was I told about restocking fee so they can DESTROY the product, Why don't they just offer your product to your customer at a significant discount so they can see if they really like it? But that would mean they would have to be confident in your product to make this offer.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Do not buy: product doesn't work and marketing is a scam

    • Seattle ,
    • Oct 1, 2015

    This product and the similar product, DermaSapphire is a complete waste of money. Not only ineffective, does not live up to its hype, but is also dangerous. I used it for 4 weeks and developed a severe facial rash. The product is shipped as a free trial offer but your are billed an exorbitant amount if the product is not returned within 30 days, despite the obvious fact that 30 days is too short a time to test efficacy and personal tolerance. The company is marketing a scam. The customer service is appalling, rude and unhelpful. You will regret buying this product.

    Horrible

    • Elk Grove, CA,
    • Aug 25, 2015

    I wish I could give a zero star rating. I have been trying to get a refund on this product since April 2015 and just get the run around every time I call. How I wish I had denied the charges. This company is horrible to deal with and a complete scam! Do not order.

    Do not Order

    • Tampa, FL,
    • Jul 30, 2015

    I sent for the so called free sample. Nowhere in the advertisement did it mention that it was a 14 day trial. Then I received my credit card and there was a $99 charge. I did not know what it was for, as I had received no additional product. What a scam. This company and product should be fined and off the market. Why would I pay $99 for a product when I can get facial care at that cost? When the sample was received, it was in a package with no additional information. The people are committing fraud. My credit card company is investigating this.

    This Company is a scam

    The trial offer is a scam and violates internet contract law. In a legitimate contract you have to scroll down the terms and either "accept" or "decline". The $99.99 auto ship program is not mentioned when you order the free trial. It is only mentioned in the bottom of the website. This format is illegal and a complete scam.

    I got three RMAs and only got credit for one. I will be sending a report to the MS Attorney General office. I hope these scammers are shut down.

    No benefit and Exorbitant price

    I got the "free trial" and used it faithfully for two weeks and saw no results. 14 days from the date I ordered (not the day it shipped or was received) my credit card was billed $99.95. Luckily, the credit card company denied the second charge on $99.95 for Derma Scoop. I called on 3/20/2015, which was day 11 from when I got the products to cancel all further shipments and billing. After some discussion about reduced pricing and extended trial time, I finally got RMA numbers for both products. When they get the products (I'll send with tracking to know when they get them), they will issue a refund for the Bleu Sapphire and cancel all auto-shipments.

    SCAM

    • Mississippi,
    • Apr 11, 2015

    No where in the online ad did it ever say these products cost $99.99. I never signed for a recurring shipment or agreed to anything but the original trial.

    SCAMMERS... Do not order. This is my last time ever ordering anything online.

    Not yet sure if this is a Scam or Not

    Ordered the Bleu Sapphire and the other cream. Did not know it was a 14 day trial. The company shipped the Bleu Sapphire to me on day 13 and billed my credit card $99.99 twice next day. Company rep said that to return I have to pay a 15% re-stocking fee. Never even had a chance to try it so don't know if it works or not. I called and they were supposed to credit my account half of what was charged but that has not happened yet. When they shipped order there was no packing list, no instructions and no phone number to call, also no emails. I had to get the number from my bank by telling them which charges to look at. Company made it very difficult to reach them, which I suppose is what they wanted, but if their product really works I would think they would include instructions and contact information. Will not deal with this company again.

      Had the exact same experience. No where on the ad was it said this would cost $99.99. My bank is issuing a charge back.
