I'd quite like to just send half the kit back and get half my money back but that won't be allowed!

    Decleor oils and balms are very very tiny but you can really get used to using the teeny tiny amounts. I have to say i am lucky i inherited my skin from my mum and its always been good but family and friends have said my skins looking even better. I do think if your skin is dry due to age or bad luck you cant beat an oil/balm slotted in to your routine and the optimum face balms feels and smells like its worth 5 times more. its half price atm £5 and its gorgeous the smell ....and the feel of it is real luxury

    I remember reading some years back on the QVC US forum a woman openly admitted she decanted the expensive cream into another pot then fill the original with a cheap drug store cream and returned. She was slaughter by the other posters not sure if she left or was banned from posting shortly afterwards but she disappeared? But it makes you think about how many others would do that?

    So glad you said it

    Oh heck don’t even bother going down sticking a load over cream in an already open pot

    What about filling one of those plastic pots you can pick up at Wilko or the supermarket designed to decant for travelling...

    That is shocking. As someone with extremely sensitive and reactive skin who has to watch out for particular ingredients, this has me worried. I think a cellophane film is needed and any returns binned.

    but wouldn't the really high post & return costs mean that in the end, she wasn't gaining that much?

    No, Don't.

    (Not that any of us ever would,) but, they actually employ people to suss out fraudulent shopping - (I saw a job advertised.) Just not worth getting a record, especially if the police were involved, & I'm guessing a shop would be within their rights to involve the police,after all, isn't that stealing?

    Not when the brand was $$$ like say Perricone or on easy pay. First, easy pay and back they the shipping for QVC US was $4-5, don't forget because of the different credit system in the US they have 6 easy pays a lot. So say face cream cost $100 she swapped and the first easy pay and return postage was under $20. She had a perhaps it was more expensive as QVC US do different brands than the UK so for perhaps a $100+ face cream she paid under $20.
