From their website or elsewhere, there is no evidence of any form of a product guarantee or return policy. However, it seems most people reviewing the product were happy with their purchase. We do however feel that a company confident in its product should offer a strong guarantee, allowing the customer to try the product without risk.
Mother’s Special Blend Skin Toning Oil Review – Conclusion
There are some things to like about Mother’s Special Blend Skin Toning Oil. It has an all natural ingredient list, free from animal products, chemicals, artificial colorings or preservatives. We also like that it is not tested on animals. The price of Mother’s Special Blend Skin Toning Oil is starting to get pricey at $15 for a small 8oz bottle. We would like to see some special offers available when buying online. There are many positive reviews for this product online which suggests that many people have had positive experiences in preventing stretch marks during and beyond pregnancy. Some reviews of the product complained about the strong smell while others complained about its effectiveness. We would like to see a product guarantee or return policy and believe that a company should stand behind the effectiveness of its products. We like that the website suggests applying the product to a small area of skin to test for allergies but if a person is allergic wouldn’t it be fair for the return policy to enable that person to return the product at that point? After careful review, we, therefore, feel that we cannot recommend this product as compared to competing products offering similar results.
