Lumare Skin Anti Aging Serum Review – Does Christie Brinkley Really Use it?

I love discovering new wrinkle creams, in fact I scour the internet in hopes of finding the next “miracle cream” so I can write a review on the product. What could be better than a wrinkle cream that works better than botox and takes 10 years off of your face?

And whose face is the public more drawn to other than our own American age-defying beauty, Christie Brinkley? At 61 years old, she looks fabulous! What is her secret?!

And talk about a sweet deal – what could be better than a FREE TRIAL of this miracle in a bottle that ENews claims she uses?

But is Lumare really free, and did Christie Brinkley really rebound after her divorce and take years off of her face using Lumare Skin Anti Aging Serum? Is she really mistaken for the twin sister of her 16 year old daughter, Sailor from using this product?

Let’s investigate further. I believe in miracles folks, but sometimes if the claims seems too good to be true, you need to take a closer look!

HOLLYWOOD Exclusive: Christie Brinkley’s Unimaginable Appearance Makes Our Jaws Drop

The headline is enticing, to say the least, and the before and after pictures do show Christie with softer features (it’s easy to mislead using different lighting in pictures).

Lumare Skin Anti Aging Serum claims in an “E News” article that after Christie’s divorce, her skin needed reviving (fake article by the way, and discernible by the masked URL made to look like it’s an E News article).

She had developed bags under her eyes, crows feet, and laugh lines. The article claims that Christie’s dermatologist recommended that she use Lumare Skin Anti Aging Serum, and “that day, Christie’s face changed forever.”

The article quotes Christie as saying: “I Couldn’t believe how quickly I saw the effects. Within a week, I had already noticed a difference that had nearly brought me to tears” – Christie

Did Christie Brinkley Really Transform Using Lumare Skin Anti Aging Serum?

I hate to be the bearer of well, the truth, but I highly doubt Christie is using Lumare Skin Anti Aging Serum, but nice try rip off artists!  She has great genes, and the money to use the world’s top quality products, and let’s face it – most celebs dabble in a little plastic surgery eventually. However, I will say Christie has done an excellent job taking care of herself and not allowing plastic surgery to change her overall appearance so kudos to this beautiful woman!

The Reality of the Lumare Skin Anti Aging Serum Free Trial

Lumare skin cream scam
Celebs you’ll regularly see in wrinkle cream free trial advertisements.

I’ve been seeing these misleading articles for years! Free trial offers such as the Lumare Skin Anti Aging Serum have morphed over time – the celebs change, the name of the creams change, but the remarkable claims and offers for free trials remain the same.

I have no shame in labeling any and all such misleading advertisements as “wrinkle cream scams” and unfortunately people are falling for these scams left and right.

They sign up for the “free trial” and are required to enter their credit card number to pay for the minimal shipping and handle of $5.95, and unknowingly agree to the “terms and conditions” that you couldn’t find to save your life!

And then the harsh reality sets in when they receive their credit card statement and they see a recurring monthly charge of $98.71 for Lumare Skin Anti Aging Serum. They can’t believe that the “free trial” they signed up for was actually not a free trial at all, but an auto ship, auto rebill program where they will be sent Lumare Skin Anti Aging Serum monthly from now until they can jump through the massive hoops it takes to actually cancel their standing order.

Lumare Anti Aging Skin Serum Free Trial Terms & ConditionsLumare

If you look closely on the Lumare Skin Anti Aging Serum free trial sign up sales page (or most free trial sales pages for that matter), this is what you would find under their Terms & Conditions (I copied and pasted from Lumare’s website, but really had to look around before I found it).

And please notice the typos (bolded) – I see typos consistently on these free trial scams since most of them originate from South American countries where English is not their first language. The typos are not always glaring, but they are usually there, and they should serve as a RED FLAG.

Lumare Skin Anti Aging Serum Conclusion

Lumare Skin Anti Aging Serum is the latest wrinkle cream scam I’ve seen in circulation, and personally I would avoid it like the plague. Lumare uses misleading and fake news articles to quote celebrities such as Christie Brinkley, Katie Courig and Ellen Degeneres who do not use these products in real life, and as far as the products go, I wouldn’t consider them anything special. I would consider 99% of them to be average moisturizers with no cutting edge ingredients included in the mix.

I’ve seen these ads circulating for years and I can identify them easily, however the average consumer may not. I hope that you have found this article because you were curious about the product and you’re doing research before purchasing.

However, if you’ve found yourself here because you unknowingly signed up for the free trial and now you’re pissed after finding charges on your creditdisputing wrinkle cream charges card, here’s what you should do:

  • Contact Lumare immediately and cancel your trial. The email published in the terms and conditions is: [email protected] or call (8-8-8)263-6216 or 1-844-650-6010. Don’t let them push you around, demand to speak to a supervisor if they give you the run around (which they will).
  • Ask them if they will issue a refund if you return the unused portion. Sometimes they will but they will oftentimes still charge you a restocking fee of roughly half the product cost.
  • If you can’t reach them (typical for scams like this, i.e. bad emails, bad phone numbers), you may have to go to your bank and dispute the charges and/or cancel your credit or debit card altogether.
  • Fight back: You can file a complaint with the BBB online or call them if you are unhappy with the results of their return policy with your case.

This might be the worst company that I've ever dealt with. There's no such thing as a free trial with Lumare. And if you have the bad fortune of trying to deal with their customer service people, especially Alan, then prepared to spend a good hour of your life on the phone with no results. I'm filing with the Better Business Bureau and would highly advise anyone considering to use this product not to. It's not just a poor product, and horrible scam!!!!

Q: I agreed to get the sample of the eye cream and the ageless face complex all I had to pay was shipping.I have my bank statement and there has been an amount of $89.84 and one for $88.62. Can trhis be returned to me or either my account? thanks -glenda

A: Glenda, call your bank and get the phone numbers, you need to call the cream companies and cancel your subscription and ask for a refund, which they normally will not give if you're past the 14 day free trial. Rachel

Q: I was a previous customer and would like to restart. I was receiving the product at a 75% discount. Can I restart at that rate? -Jean Reed

A: Jean, I wouldn't know. I warn against Lumare since it scams people into unknowing auto billing arrangments. I would steer clear of it and find a better cream. Rachel

    I’ve been caught by this scam in Ireland, one american company and one british. However after a lot of digging I have come up with a few names who seem to be behind many of these products. There are loads of company names involved but a few people are the common denominator between them all, some in uk, a couple us, phillipines and one in bahamas.

    I have been fighting with this company for over 3 months now. Once I learned about the “auto” and billing I called, canceled and sent them back their product with tracking (extra fee) just so I knew they received it and when. I called after they received it and they gave me back the cost of 1 item but not the other. Said they had a problem processing it through to my account! Long story short I have been calling weekly for 3+ months and still have yet to receive it. They have even told me they mailed me a check twice! I am now getting ready to take them to small claims court were I will be attempting to receive my refund plus interest owed on money they have withheld from me and also time I’ve spent on the phone, mailing and keeping records of each call. For the most part the representatives and supervisors have been nice just unable to anything else. I’ve been told it goes to “upper management” and they don’t take customer calls. I have requested they call or email me and that has yet to happen.
    It will cost me 20 to file in small claims court- which I will also ask that fee to be covered by this “business” as well.
    Currently waiting 1 more week to make it officially 4 months.

      Amy, have you tried disputing these charges with your credit card company or bank? Try that before you go to court. Do you happen to live in TX? I’m trying to find consumers in Austin TX for an upcoming CBS interview I’m doing, they want local victims. Thank you! Rachel

  • Sandee

    Thank you for this information. I saw a “lumanere” ad this morning with supposed videos of real time transformation of this product and endorsements from Dr. Oz etc…I always research validity before I believe what the internet is saying is true and I came across your blog on it. I appreciate your taking your time to research and report!

  • Tom Brite

    This company is a total ripoff. Once you have asked for the “free” sample and given them your credit card number, they will continue to send and charge to you until you threaten a lawsuit. DO NOT take advantage of this “offer!” Do your research and you will find hundreds of Better Business Bureau complaints against this company.

      Hi Tom, thanks for your comment, although I’m sorry you got caught up in this one. I hope you were able to cancel and at least get a partial refund? Was it sold as a combo free trial – were there two products or just Lumare Skin?

        Hi Rachel. My wife ordered only the eye cream. In my opinion, this is one of the worst consumer scams out there. One tip I learned yesterday from my credit card company, you can have your credit card company block any further charges from a single business, without having to change your card entirely. I did that, have contested last month’s charge as well. They did offer a 35% discount as a settlement, but I did not accept it because I wanted to keep my legal options open.

    Is this the same product Dr Oz.. the TV star.. with ‘his face’ [There’s another Dr Oz with a similar product]… Because I have seen a products he’s offered .. with pictures of ”the same set of stars”.. I got caught once with products that I caught a couple of months ..money taken out of my account..Because I didn’t read fine print tucked away in tiny fine print! You know full well it is a scam.. I have to find Boxed and stick all the products back in and get the Return Address From them and Go to Post office and PAY to send it all BACK.. THEN they refunded my money and with it all I only recieved the first shipment that I paid a small amount for .. for which I thought were SAMPLES! to SEE! If i liked it!..I wonder how many .. many !!! people get caught with these scams.. If the DAMNED PRODUCT WAS SOOOO GOOOOD .. They wouldn’t HAVE to make their money this way.. BELIEVE ME..But it seems to be catching on as a way company’s scam today! IF the Tv show Dr Oz is involved with this.. I’m disappointed in HIS CHARACTER!!!!!!!! It is common sense to see! How people can get caught when they only wanted to try the DAMNED Product.. WE don’t ask for big bottle and since yaw do! send normal size.. thats you problem.. Dont know ..dont care is it is good or not.. it is the SCAM.. You have got to be Insane to think this is close to ETHICAL.. You should add.. ‘if you can afford it.’ like one hair care guy did.. Least that lets you know there is more to it than just a nominal cost for this thing! You know what? the sad part is .. this is a waste of time here.. Because nothing on this earth will make you care.. that you are dishonest and scammers.. Its just a business deal for you.. Sick! Sick!..Women are just trying to test a product by PAYING for it ..albeit a small amount! But we expect you to send what you are willing to send for that amount … But ..that’s too much to expect now a days.. What i don’t understand .. is .. unless the product is really bad..you’re killing your own reputation right off the bat..! I am not the only one that cannot comprehend this..We can go to the store and buy Hydroloric acid… which I DID .. after I found out that was in it ! Idiots!

      JH, Dr. Oz does not endorse ANY skin creams, so any and all ads you see with his name being used are SCAMS. Sorry you had a bad experience. It’s surely frustrating to get caught up in their unethical business practice.
