If you’re considering accepting the free trial for the NuvaLift and Puravol Anti-Aging cream combo, please read this review first! It never ceases to amaze me how many short-term (12-14 day) “free trial” offers I come across these days.
Many of them use Dr. Oz in their deceptive marketing campaigns to promote their products and mislead consumers into thinking he actually recommends these creams.
If you really take a close look at the verbiage used in these ads, the identical story lines, pictures and quotes, the typos, you’ll quickly see through these fallacies.
You’ll soon be wondering if it isn’t the Great and Powerful Oz coming up with these schemes!
Please, before you enter your credit card information for a free trial, read this review and always ALWAYS READ THE FINE PRINT at the bottom of your screen when you’re ordering something online.
NuvaLift and Puravol Wrinkle Cream Combo – How the Scams Suck you In
The latest wrinkle cream scam that I need to warn you about is the combination offer of Nuva Lift and Puravol.
I’d be willing to bet that the same companies which offer free trials of Avonlea and Pristine and Bellalabs and LaCreme are now offering NuvaLift and Puravol, and you should read those reviews to educate yourself as these scams are running rampant.
These “miracle” and “revolutionary” anti-aging creams are being promoted as a combination short-term free trial offer with only a 12 day trial period! 12 days is hardly enough time to allow for shipping, much less enough time to try the product to see if you like it.
It’s no surprise why so many unsuspecting people are stumbling upon these ads and getting sucked in. If you’re legitimately searching for a good anti-aging cream, where do you go?
Most likely Google, and if you Google “Dr. Oz Wrinkle Cream” there is usually a paid ad at the very top, and many convoluted websites, with headlines that say something like “DrOz #1 Anti Aging Trick” but it doesn’t lead you to Dr. Oz’s official website.
It does, however, quickly lead you to a very crafty and deceptive sales page offering you free trials of “NuvaLift and Puravol,” or “NuvaLift and Idolize,” or “NuvaLift and Pelevoni.”
NuvaLift and Puravol Negative Reports – Want Proof of this Rip Off?
These scams are all identical in nature, offering you free trials of the products, and telling you that you need BOTH creams for results.
Let’s take a quick look at NuvaLift as an example to see how this company is rated and what consumers have to say about them. Ladies, I don’t make this stuff up!
The Better Business Bureau, or BBB, has had 79 customer complaints just in the past twelve months regarding advertising issues, billing collection issues, guarantee issues, etc.
Nuvalift has an “F” rating with the BBB which is no surprise. I copied and pasted this from the BBB website and you can click through on the links to see more details:

NuvaLift and Puravol Complaints on Scambook and Ripoff Report
NuvaLift and Puravol also currently have $3,462.24 in unresolved reported damages on the NuvaLift Scambook Reports website alone, with 36 consumer complaints totaling up to that disputed amount.
In other words, these are current customers who have been sucked into the short term free trials who had no idea that they would be billed over $200 per month for both of these creams in an auto-rebill, auto-ship program.
Most of the time consumers don’t even realize they’re being charged monthly until they start racking up credit card debt and wondering where it’s coming from.
Another website with customer complaints on NuvaLift and Puravol is the NuvaLift Ripoff Report, with a multitude of the same type of complaints, i.e. people not realizing what they were agreeing to in the fine print, thinking it was in fact a free trial.
NuvaLift and Puravol – The Fine Print
Today I went to one of the actual websites of the NuvaLift and Puravol offers (there are many), entered a fake name and address, phone # and email address, so that I could get to the final order page to see the fine print with my own eyes.
Here’s what you will find at the bottom of your screen when you order these trials, I literally copied and pasted from the actual website offers of NuvaLift and Puravol. The fine print is what most consumers don’t even notice!
Puravol’s Fine Print
Initially, just pay $4.95 (USD) for S&H today to fully evaluate Puravol Skin Care for 12 days. If you like Puravol Skin Care, simply keep the product. Once your trial has ended (12 days from today) you will be billed $99.15 for the product. Then on day 30 and every 30 days thereafter you will continue in the monthly program for $99.15. You can cancel any time by calling 1-800-481-2609.
NuvaLift’s Fine Print
You must pay a shipping and handling fee of $4.95 for us to send you a 30 day trial supply of NuvaLift. We ship the product the day after you place your order (except that orders placed Saturday-Sunday will be shipped the following Monday). We allow up to 5 days for you to receive the trial supply. Thus, in order for you to have 10 days to try the product, we consider the end date for your trial period to be 15 days after you place your order, which is 10 days plus 5 days for processing and transit. If after your 14 Day Trial Period you wish to continue to receive NuvaLift, simply do nothing, and in approximately 30 days and continuing every 30 days thereafter (a Recurring Order), you’ll be shipped out a fresh new 30 day supply of NuvaLift for the low VIP price of $84.87 per bottle with FREE shipping. For your convenience, we will bill the credit card you provided us for your initial order. To cancel automatic delivery and billing, call us at 1-877-759-7349 or email us at [email protected] any time. Please read our terms and conditions for more details.
NuvaLift and Puravol Conclusion
NuvaLift and Puravol are anti-aging creams with boastful claims that you can reduce wrinkle depth by 29%, increase collagen systhesis by 81% in 15 days, and have a 32% reduction in the depth of furrow in 28 days.
Nuvalift and Puravol are are sold as a combination, short-term free-trial offer that give you 12-15 days, from the day you order the product, to receive it and try it to decide whether or not you like it.
If you don’t cancel within the trial period, you will be billed monthly in an auto-ship, auto-rebill program (over $200).
After reading this review, there should be no doubt in your mind that I DO NOT recommend NuvaLift and Puravol, nor do I recommend NuvaLift and Idolize, or NuvaLift and Pelevoni.
I don’t approve of deceptive marketing campaigns that flat out lie in their ads to say that these are Dr. Oz recommended creams.
Don’t accept free trials of this nature, it’s always better to buy a cream outright that has a money back guarantee.
My top cream Kollagen Intensiv is very effective, I’ve used it for over 4 years with great results! It’s worth a look.

BUYER BEWARE_Scam company
Won't let me rate less than a One or I would. Found out this creme was developed by the Duck Dynasty wives (or had something to do with it) so I thought free trial offer, $4.95 shipping no problem. I knew I was going to cancel within the 14 days, because there was no way the creme would be used up by then. As soon as I received it I started the cancel process. Yes, I say process. Calls on hold for 20 min, I gave up, several times. Messages left not being returned. Next thing I knew another order came (plain brown padded envelope with no paperwork, nothing but the small box with product in it) I couldn't figure out how this was being paid for, some of this probably my fault, as I have all my Credit card statements electronically. So as Life happens, and several more calls & messages I forgot. Two more shipments came. Finally I got so flustered I was obsessed in contacting this company. Finally got someone with a pulse, said they'd issue a refund, still haven't seen it (going on 7 months now ) Got them to stop sending me any more of their creme. Then 4 months later i got another shipment .so i started the process again .now they have changed the way you are supposed to contact them, thru email. I listened to the message many times, even redialed several times to get address correct. However they say in recording of its an emergency or something to that effect please Zero. So after I sent 3 different emails with them coming back undeliverable, I called when they first open at 7am. I was on hold for 23 min before i gave up. I called the credit card which this was charged on. I'm disputing some charges & closed the account down. Pretty sad that it had to come to that. Now I have to make changes to any recurring payments to any other charges, either monthly, every other month, quarterly etc. Pain in neck. Thing I wasn't happy with my credit card company was that I received a text telling me I had a package coming from.... Did some looking and sure enough, more creme. Credit card company for me they couldn't do anything, I asked for a stop payment. I was told I needed to wait until the charge posted & I'd have to contact card company to dispute charge. So here I sit with over $487 worth of charges and still haven't finished the trial product. Credit card company told me that they had switched names. Unsure exactly, but maybe that's how the shipments started up again & the bogus email address they want you to contact. Knowing straight up that by time new customers try to stop it'll be to late and they'd have already shipped 2 more items. Another strange thing is the cost had varied. Some were $99.95, $89.95 & the last two were $49.97 (could that be from company name change, or actual new distribution company) Prior to this note I read reviews almost word for word what happened to me and many others. If you really, really think this stuff will work for you, make sure you cancel ASAP., or better yet, give them a pre-paid card or something that they can only get that initial $4.95 shipping. (play their game) unsure if this helps out any, but that's what I had to do to stop the money bleeding. Pretty sad how in this day the customer still can get hosed out of their money. This is something I'd figure would come from a phone call to me trying to get my info to scam me, mostly from people whom speak bad, barely recognizable English. Buyer Beware!!
I love the Puravol anti-aging skin care. It healed an open cancerous like bump on my nose. It healed a sensitive area of peeling skin that is now smooth and beautiful again.
Should have read the reviews first!! Will never trust a DR. Oz recommendation again. I ordered it, it arrived and, before I had a chance to cancel, found 2 more products in the mail charged to my account. It has been over 2 months since I returned them following all of their procedures and also sending it priority mail with a tracking number. The first few times I called they claimed they never received it. I then gave them the tracking information showing that it had been received. The next few times I called they said the refund would be forthcoming. 2 months later still waiting. The call today said it was such a long wait that they would have to issue a paper check refund?!?! Should I ever get the refund (almost $200) I have a feeling the check will bounce!! Buyer beware. You have been warned.
I ordered my "free trial products" 8/15-received them 8/18,started using them on the 19th was billed $89.95& $99.57 on the 25th-nothing came in the packaging with the products-no receipt,statement,re-ordering info, ect. Just plain brown padded envelopes w/no return address. Turned this over to my bank and they are still trying to get some resolution. The products are crap-my moisturizer is just as effective.!!!!!!! Don't get caught in this scam.
this is a scam do not purchase waste of money i ordered the sample failed to read the fine print at the bottom it does not work all it is is a small tube and small jar got charged 99,99 dollars if I did not cancel in fourteen days called and they said that was all I would get was the sample it does not work and I lost almost one hundred dollars for a sample they do not send nothing else do not throw your money away would give it a zero if I could
I would never recommend this product to anyone. They completely rip you off. You get the cream the day before they bill you after the 14 days. My face starting burning and they told me that they had already taken the money out of my account. I had just received the product. The guy who answered the phone hung up on me. It took hours before someone picked up. In the end, a sweet woman by the name of Doris completely understood what happened, and told me it would take 10 days to return it to my bank. In the meantime, my bank did an investigation without me knowing. I called up 10 days later and they told me I should be getting the credit any day. She even gave me the confirmation numbers and they never gave me the credit. The cream burned my face. The bank decides without telling me that they have a right to take the money. I had only one day to try it. They sent me another letter saying they were going to mail another product out. I said absolutely "no". I deserve my credit and I will never ever use this place again. They initially were doing the right thing by crediting my account and never did. This is not over.
Nuvalift full refund promised!
After signing up for their "free trial", we arrived home from vacation to discover three new packages of Nivalift in my held mail! OMYGoodness! This stuff gave me wrinkles where I previously had none! YUCK! After discovering this blog, I telephoned Nuvalift at the number supplied (844-308-1879) in this blog, stayed on robot hold "One of our agents will be Right With You!" for two hours, which yielded me a promised full refund! Hooray! I began my hold experience at 8:30 Central Time, my call was completed by 10:30. The contact number on the product box has been disconnected. Thank you to everyone posting on this blog! I will keep you all informed when I receive the nearly $300 refund as promised!
I had to choose a rating, but they need to have negative star ratings, because that is what this scam company deserves. I was scammed as well. Appears Nuvalift and Shimmering Clarity is the combination name now. They sent my credit card company a form that I know is different than the one I put my credit card info on. I definitely did not see any wording indicating that my card would be charged $99 and $89,in 14 days. I would never have agreed to that. I, like others, thought I was receiving a "free trial" of a product. I am angry at myself for not looking at the reviews first. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I will never let this happen again. Just glad I caught it after the first charge, but sooo angry they were able to convince my bank I had agreed to their terms, and I have no way to prove otherwise! Also, the only place their phone number shows up is on the initial "trial" shipping charge of $5.00. They don't send any paperwork with the product or put a phone number on their e-mails. I really have to let this go. It has me so angry, it has disturbed my sleep!
Do Not Get The Trial For NOUVALIFT.
You will get billed in 15 days for over $150.00. if you already have call 844 3083780. That was there real phone number when I called to complain.
Your right it is a scam not only on this product but also on Dr. Oz weight loss pills. Please beware!
