Proactive / Vita Clear Vitamins / Not refunded

1 United States Review updated:

No longer needed to take the Vita Clear vitamins and sent them back as directed to do so by phone sales rep. She said it would take up to 6 weeks for refund. That was last July and still no refund, why?

    I too have gotten these vitamins through my Proactive Solution order (a trial) I cannot contact Vita Clear by phone or email... I've been trying for 2 weeks to get a hold of someone and cancel this subscripton for Vita Clear vitamins. I got the email and phone number FROM the Proactive company and every email is return undelivered, every phone call is unanswered. It's good to know that I am not the only person having this problem but I no longer have any confidance in the Guthy-Renker company what so ever. Beware of this company. If anyone finds a way to actually get through to these people please feel free to contact me.

    If you still have had no luck and are a club member you can go online and cancel the orders. You can also call the same number on the web site to make orders and they will direct you properly.
    CALL THIS NUMBER 1 (800) 876-9717

    WTH!!!??? I just send it back UPS! I have the confirmation of delievery. They can take your money fast from your account but refunds are a big issue! not fair or right. Proactiv should let people know about this. I cancelled both proactiv and those stupid bills! Cheaper to get the vitiams from Target! Cheaper to buy Proactiv on Ebay with out being a member of a stupid skin care club!!! I am not buying any more proactiv anyway!

    I actually thought the vitaclear with Praventin worked very well. My complexion looked flawless and actually had a glow. To my surprise they charge on a monthly basis but send shipments are every two months. My understanding was $34.00 for a two month supply. This is a high price. I called vitaclear to see where my shipment was (because they automatically deduct) and once again to my surprise vitaclear with pravnetin is not being sold anymore, so I didnt get a shipment. HMMM...I ask why and the sales people can not give me an answer and try to sale me 50, 000 vitamins instead that wont even benefit my complexion. In short this company is very suspicious deeming them untrustworthy.

    wow! this is very serious. I recently order some proactiv and i sign up for the vitaclear free trail. Proactiv company should also be responsible for this untrustworthy company, as a company proactiv shouldn't be doing business with these people knowing that they have good reputation with their customers.

    This also happened to me. I have atelast 4 boxes and two that I haven't even opened yet. It has a lot of good source in vitamins though, pretty much everything you need and it's good 'cause your not gonna be able to have every vitamin in a day if your too busy and your out and it gets all the iron and thiamin. But I hated it being discounted automatically. It's a total rip-off.

    The proative rep. told me when I got my free trial that I could go online and cancel it from my account. When I never saw it on there I assumed it wasn't. WRONG. I got the next box so I called then transfered to some Indian chick who was not happy that I was canceling... I better not get any more of these vitamins. The smell and taste HORRIBLE and make me feel so sick afterwards.. about to cancel proactive altogether just because I'm tired of all the "samples" and then getting screwed the next month...

    The whole process is unfair. I had taken a couple pills from the trail box and they made me feel nauseated, so i stopped taking them after the first week. The, the next month, they sent me a pack of 3 and charged me about 40 dollars a month...i hadn't even gone through a week of the trail!! Its crazy. Yes they are a bit expensive, but they don't even work! And now I'm trying to return them and its "past the warranty date" OF TWO MONTHS! My shipment amount was longer than that! Complete rip off, very unsatisfied.

    I too have issues with GRC vitamin service. First of all, I bought the Proactive products and had zero interest in the vitamins offered. I agreed to participate in a trail of the vitamins - but only the trial. Then, the vitamins just started showing up without an order. Turns out, the skin care and vitamin companies are both owned by Guthy-Renker and they are sharing your credit card information. I did not establish a relationship with this annoying vitamin company, Proactive pushed it on their website. Then, when I returned the vitamins, they refused to give me a refund. This company has shady business practices. Buyer beware!!!

    DONT ORDER PRO ACTIVE- when i called to order my first package the salesman told me I was getting charges $40 for my package. When i received my package I saw the bill that was actually $85 and they had put me on a payment plan of $40 a week but he failed to tell me that he only told me the total my visa was being charged and the total of the package was $40!! Thieves!!!

    Do not order Proactive and the vitamins! When signing up for proactive I was asked to try a free trial of vitamins. After taking them for two weeks I stopped. They made me sick. I looked on my account on proactive's website and couldn't find them. They sent me three more boxes! I couldn't find a number to cancel! Couldn't send them back and would not get a refund!!!
