I’ve got another brand that I’m reporting on and this one is sure to make you cringe, your stomach turn, or perhaps even make you want to call your bank and ask for a refund. All I needed was one whiff of this and I quickly knew what was to come of it. The brand that I’m referring to is Firmalogic. It’s a brand that I’d say has likely been in the skin care trial business for quite some time. Based on the research that I’ve done, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that they’ve put together quite the scam.
Full disclosure: I am not saying that this company and product is a scam. I’m simply stating that based on my research, it reminds me of some of the less respected practices of which many subpar skin care companies are partaking in these days, that’s all.
I dove headfirst into the online feedback that I found and boy oh boy, I almost fell out of my seat when I read some of the things that people were saying about this brand. Customer feedback is typically a solid indication as to whether or not a brand is worth trying. When you come across a brand in which nothing good is showcased, then be worried.
The Truth About Firmalogic
Okay, so here’s honest truth about Firmalogic and what I feel about this company. In my professional opinion, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Firmalogic seems to be a huge waste of time and money. What the company tries to do is showcase products in a manner that makes them look appealing and economical (heck, even free) then what they do is hit you with a charge that was completely unexpected and over the top. They continue to hit you with these charges on a monthly basis until you’ve canceled your membership.
Here’s exactly how the sales funnel works…
Firmalogic does not have its own website. Instead, they have affiliates create websites for them and those affiliates provide links to consumers. When they click on the links, they get offered a free trial where the company offers a promo that’s almost too good to pass up on. However, when you click on that promotion, you’re immediately sent to another page that lists out other products which are completely different from the Firmalogic product.
Now, what’s frustrating about this is that these affiliates are using Firmalogic product images to promote other brands. The other brands (to the best of my knowledge) are not associated with the original Firmalogic brand. However, what I’d like to suggest is that the same manufacturer handles the manufacturing process for all associated brands. So, in a sense, they could be related to one another.
They drop the names of some ingredients such as collagen and elastin in order to attract you and get you to take action on the free trial. They make claims that using this product will help you prevent sagging skin and fine lines. They’ll do just about anything for your credit card information.
Diving Into The Ingredients
If you’re doing a search for the company website to run through the ingredients, then good luck. The site is officially offline and you’re not going to find it anywhere. However, I did some ninja research and was able to uncover some of the ingredients that Firmalogic claims to use when creating these products.
Here’s a rundown of some of the ingredients that the company claims to incorporate into the Firmalogic cream.
Vitamin C – I’m not surprised that vitamin C is included in this product. It’s perhaps the best antioxidant on the market and just about every skin care product incorporates this. It does help with removing free radicals and making collagen stronger within the body.
Hyaluronic Acid – Another very common ingredient, hyaluronic acid is supposedly incorporated into Firmalogic products for a number of reasons. My guess is that it has something to do with its ability to retain moisture. Read about it here.
Matrixyl 3000 – This is a very popular chemical often found in eye creams and other skin serums out there. It’s supposed to help boost your collagen due to the peptides that it contains. It’s got something to do with collagen stimulation and new growth.
At any rate, please keep in mind that I’m not 100% able to determine or confirm the exact amounts of each ingredient that’s in Firmalogic. Just because a product contains an ingredient does not mean that it works. Keep that in mind, please.
Okay, so this is where the real trouble is. If you’re looking to buy Firmalogic, then my guess is that you’re not going to find this product anywhere at all. The official company website was taken offline (for god knows what reason) and there are not many options otherwise. Some people have found them on sites like eBay and Amazon but I’d strongly suggest against buying this product from any third-party websites, period.
One thing that I noticed when searching this site is all the offers out there are for free product trials. This is not actually free. In fact, it’s 100% going to cost you both time and money. The reason I factor time in, is that you’re going to have to call your bank and the company to explain that you did not authorize charges etc. It’s a whole process that you’ll want to avoid if possible.
The Reviews Online
If you take a peek at some of the reviews, you’ll quickly realize why this is such an awful product. Customers cannot stand dealing with free trial offers. They feel like they are being screwed over by the company and truth be told, I couldn’t agree more with them. For the $95 a month that it costs, you could be getting a whole lot more bang for your buck, that’s for sure!
Conclusion: Stay Away From Firmalogic
Here’s what you need to know, just stay away from this, period. If you attempt to buy Firmalogic or any of the products associated with the marketing of them, then you’re a fool. It’s nothing but a free trial skin care scam. Do not fall for it.
