About Youthful Radiance

Sometimes we feel like a broken record. Why?

When it comes to trial-based anti-aging products like Youthful Radiance, it’s almost always the same story. They make big promises, like “look 10 years younger,” or that 9 out of 10 customers “witnessed a profound improvement on their skin.”

They claim to be powerful serums that can brighten skin and lighten dark spots, cleanse pores, rejuvenate your complexion, increase firmness and elasticity, soften skin, and rapidly reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Oh my!

And to do all this, products like Youthful Radiance claim to use only natural ingredients, such as fruit acid, green tea extract, grape stem cell extract, macadamia nut oil, ginkgo biloba, and peptides.

Want our unbiased impression about Youthful Radiance? We think you should stay far, far away. To understand why though is slightly more complex, so allow us to explain.

The 1, 2, 3s of Scams Like These

If you’re shopping around online for an anti-aging product (Youthful Radiance or otherwise) or a nutritional supplement and come across any of these, watch out.

If you encounter all three, high tail it out of there immediately. Does Youthful Radiance match any of these?

#1: Why You Should Stay Away from Free Trials

In the case of Youthful radiance (and essentially every other trial-based anti-aging product we’ve reviewed):

  • It’s only available through a 14-day trial for $4.95.
  • After the trial ends, you’ll be charged an extremely high price ($84.95 for Youthful Radiance).
  • You’ll also keep getting a new tube of Youthful Radiance every 30 days. And you’ll have the pleasure of being charged $84.95 each time!
  • Yes, these companies claim you can just call to cancel trials/autoship programs of take advantage of the 30-day refund policy. But you’re more like to be frustrated by customer service than receive any assistance.

#2: The Evidence Doesn’t Add Up

Even if you can get past the extraordinarily high price, it might not be so easy to look past the complete lack of evidence provided by Youthful Radiance’s manufacturer.

Sure, Youthful Radiance claims to contain natural ingredients, but just because something’s natural doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily healthy—or that it works at all.

To this end, there is insufficient clinical evidence showing that green tea extract, grape stem cell extract, macadamia nut oil, or ginkgo biloba can provide any of the benefits claimed by Youthful Radiance’s manufacturer. And the term peptide is so broad that it’s essentially meaningless in this context.

In fact, of all Youthful Radiance’s ingredients, only fruit acid is commonly used for different dermatological conditions, including “acne, photoaging, dry skin, psoriasis,” and more. Creams generally contain a concentration of 8%-10%, although there’s no product label provided on the Youthful Radiance website though, so we can’t be sure how much fruit acid it contains.

Speaking of the Youthful Radiance website, do you feel like you’ve seen this all before?

#3: Tantamount Templates

It’s very likely. Why?

Because the Youthful Radiance website is nearly identical to those for other popular trial-based anti-aging serums, including Skinology Cream and Auralux Snake Venom. It’s literally the exact same website, with only the product name changed.

We provided in-depth coverage about this trend in Avoid These Anti-Aging Websites Like the Plague, but if you haven’t taken a few minutes to read it yet, here’s the brief rundown:

It’s our opinion that the same small group of companies manufactures all of these products.

They scam as many customers as possible with their free trial offer (discussed above), and when enough people complain and the jig is up, they close down the site, change the product’s name (but don’t change to the product itself), put up a new site using the same template, and start scamming again. Rinse and repeat.

Skinology and Auralux have more than 40 reader reviews here on HighYa, with an average rating of 1.5 stars (as of 10/2/15). Common complaints cite failure to work, high price, and (sometimes very) poor customer service, such as difficulty cancelling recurring shipments and trials, and even of being yelled at and hung up on.

Will you experience the same with Youthful Radiance? We think it’s highly likely.

Where does this leave you?

    Scam

    I ordered the free trial, and it came within a week. I used the product for a week, before going out of town, and left the cream at home. By the way, I thought the free trial was the serum, but I received the cream. When I got home, I had a box with the cream and serum, with no invoice, and no explanation, just an Infinite Allure/Youthful Radiance Customer Service phone number of (888) 927-2977. I called, was on hold for five minutes, and the representative told me there were no returns, but as a courtesy, he could credit my credit card $83.15 (half of what I was charged). I haven't even opened the product, money back my (you know what). So, I have to wait for the credit to appear on my card, which could take several business days. He said auto ships were canceled, we'll see. Very shady business practices all the way around, and I may report it to the BBB. I may try to call another representative to see if I get the same response, I do not trust them with my credit information.

    I'm feeling ripped off.

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

    Do not deal with this dishonest company!

    I had a serious reaction to the product, about one hour after applying it, and got itchy, red blotches of discolorations. Of course, I immediately reported this to the company and canceled my autoship. I continued to receive two more UNAUTHORIZED shipments. When I spoke to a representative after the first one, I was reassured that the account would be canceled, but not after asking me if I wanted to KEEP this product for a discounted cost, so I didn't have to go through the cost of shipping it back! I accepted, thinking I could give it to a friend, but I didn't receive any reimbursement as discussed. The second shipment arrived, and of course the customer service representative does not have any documentation of the previous agreement, and I am charged ANOTHER $81.37 on my debit account. This time, I have reassurance from this representative that my account is canceled out AGAIN, after attempting to give me the same offer to keep this substandard product for a discounted cost. Can you believe it? Now, I have to pay to return it.

    The Youthful Radiance product is a scam. My friend also had a bad reaction, and was charged $81.37 twice and unauthorized, for a product that claims to be so superior? Did you know it has alcohol in it, which of course is DRYING to the skin. Buyer beware!

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

    Is not what it seems.

    • Richardson, TX,
    • Feb 9, 2016

    After purchasing this product on a free trial (except for shipping) I was charged the full amount of $81.37 for not cancelling it prior to 10 days from date ordered. Did not even receive product for 8 days.

    About the product itself, I did not experience any changes in crows feet or dark circles under eyes. The only positive thing I can say is that it has a nice fragrance and feel.

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

    Company is misleading and product ineffective.

    I was allured into a trial of two products that were supposed to compliment each other and was not aware that I would be paying the high price for the trial offer of $166.32 + shipping & handling for both. They were deceiving in their marketing and after using the product specifically as directed until the end, I saw no improvement in my skin at all.

    This company should not be allowed to manipulate people into buying what we think is a trial offer. And the product itself does not produce results when used as directed. I believe they are a total rip off and unethical in their business and marketing tactics.

    Do not be fooled by them!

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