One of you folks should contact a lawyer and ask about legal action against Carley's. Sounds that they should be put out of business.....time for you to make some money. As long as Americans allow this type of "bad behavior" than companies will continue doing it. Time for US citizens to stand up for themselves.
This is becoming a common practice amongst those selling skin products. And yes, it is very easy to tell the fake reviews from the real ones. The whole 'make sure to give it 90 days' thing is such a tell, and they can't help themselves. They are trying so desperately to sell a product, that it shows through in the writing. Honest reviewers aren't trying to sell something, so their writing is much different. I'm absolutely against a company that falsifies reviews to better their profits.
You have to display honesty when dealing with such a serious issue as acne. And when you are willing to put profits ahead of helping people to become clear, and ahead of honesty...? I don't respect you, and you should stop doing what you're doing. There's going to be a judgement day, and greedy corrupt people will have to answer for their actions in this life. This is the only thing that gives me comfort in regards to the sick people in this world today
OMG i've been posting about how terrible Carley's is for AGES. I even had this huge thread which got deleted by the mods because Carly's company complained about it....just ask the member here onefatalgoose, he was there as well.
And the thread is indeed gone. A thread basically warning people to read all reviews carefully before purchasing a product. A thread shedding some light on shady business practices, and how they should not be welcome on this site. If the product worked for you, that's awesome and it's what we all desire on this site. That is, for people to get clear
I won't support a company that has to falsify reviews to get people to try their product. Murad works for many people. However it's destroyed even more people's skin. And yet it's advertised on TV as a gentle product. It isn't. It uses extremely harsh chemicals and causes a terrible reaction in most people's skin. THIS IS NOT PURGING. Purging is a word skin company's use to get you to keep using a product even though your skin is telling you 'Please stop putting this crap on me!'
Not saying Carley's is Murad. But if you want people to respect your company...don't lie. It's not an attractive quality
So...this is the very first review i read when i searched Carley's on this site. It's a review for the soap. Look at the wording, and call me a conspiracy theorist. For example, "I always buy more though ($25 for 5 bars)" Does this not scream advertising?
This is one extremely short review. Their are tons of these that are much more telling
Devils advocate might say that this is just an excited woman who had a great experience with the soap. But Carley's has raised a red flag and drawn too much attention already due to clearly falsified reviews. So it's hard to take this at face value
Pros: This is honestly the best soap I have ever used. I use it head to toe and also on my kids. It is non irritating and my face loves it.
Bottom line: Rec'd this free when I order the acne scrub. I always buy more though ($25 for 5 bars). It is hands down the best soap out there.
Acne severity: light
