Acnetix is an all-natural topical solution that promises to eliminate acne very quickly. In fact, the website’s promises are so big that critical thinkers identify hype right away. Acnetix claims to eliminate 99.7% of acne within a week.
Here’s just one sign that Acnetix is a scam: Since at least 2008 the official website has said that products will be sold out within 36 hours!
Fake Acnetix Reviews
Posts from supposed Acnetix customers suggest the complete disappearance of acne within three days and “complete skin transformations” after one month. Checking out various forums reveals that glowing Acnetix reviews are posted by paid writers who haven’t actually tried the product.
Acnetix promises a truly no-hassle return policy; it promises to even refund the shipping and handling fees. This is just a ploy to get more people to fall for their scam.
Who created Acnetix?
According to the Acnetix website, the product was created by an average thirtysomething person who was tired of trying ineffective acne treatments. She (or he?) supposedly spent a weekend in a bookshop writing down all the natural products that were reputedly good for the skin. Then she made a list of products like parabens and sodium laureth sulfate that aren’t so good for the skin. She submitted her list of do’s and don’ts to a manufacturer and came up with Acnetix.
How much does Acnetix cost?
Acnetix only costs about $10/month. It is sold in a large $40 bottle that provides a four-month supply. Supposedly the cost savings come from smart manufacturing decisions. For example, the product is only sold in large bottles in order to reduce packaging costs. Most of the plastic used is recycled and the labels for Acnetix are produced in a facility that uses low-cost wind energy.
What are the ingredients in Acnetix?
Here are some of the ingredients in Acnetix:
- Tea tree oil — Antiseptic
- White willow — Contains salicin, the natural form of salicylic acid
- Vitamin E — Moisturizer
- Oat flour — Exfoliator
- Walnut shell — Exfoliator
- Aloe vera — Moisturizer
It’s true that natural skin care products can yield excellent benefits. This formula is not a good example of effective design no matter how great it might sound. Acnetix gives legitimate natural acne treatments a bad name. Overall, it serves as a four-month supply of exfoliant. The other ingredients aren’t present in high enough concentrations to have any noticeable effect. Furthermore, some of the natural oils in this formula can irritate skin.
