Was at Tanger Outlet in Cookstown, Ontario doing some Christmas shopping when I was pulled into the store and the sale lady who was very charming started putting cream on one side of my face. Everything was happening very fast and with lots of chatter and with intense pressure sales tactics.
I eventually gave in and bought the cream. Well then I am whisked to the back room for a facial. All the while she did lots of talking, telling me how much she wanted me as her client. She then started putting another package together which was going to cost me another $400.
Yes, crazy I am and I tried many times to say no. She worked out a finance plan where I could pay monthly. She kept telling me to keep it a secret and do not say how she gave me the biggest discount. Everything was happening so fast and can't believe I got sucked into $800 worth of products.
I left the mall feeling beaten up and my face was burning. What they do is once you purchase their product they tell you they will text or email the instructions on how to use the products. This is a sales tactic to keep you interested so you don't change your mind. They also try to befriend you so you would feel guilty to end the relationship.
Yes pretty crazy behaviour to buy a product. Anyways get in my car, face is burning and I couldn't wait to get home and wash it off. My face was burning the next day as well. That evening when I got home I texted her saying I wanted a refund but she said there is no refund.
When she gave me the bill, she she folded it twice and stuck in the bag so I wouldn't see she (Michelle) had stamped it with no refund, exchange only. Words were exchanged and I told her I was coming to the store next day after work. I got in touch with Tanger outlet manager who was very nice and understanding. She made sure Adore cosmetics gave me my refund.
This could have gone a lot worse but thankfully it worked out in my favour. What a learning experience.
They are scammers so please stay away from them. They are very dishonest and their products are not organic and toxic to your skin.
