Bio Spa by Sea of Spa Pearl and Organi (Origani) in the Philippines

Bio Spa by Sea of Spa Pearl and Organi (Origani)


Ever heard of the beauty product brand called Sea of Spa? How about Origani or Organi? I didn't know about these either until I purchased them. I've searched online and discovered that the former is a Jewish based beauty company that's recently offering their products in the Philippines in a shop called Black Pearl. The same store is also offering products from Organi or Origani of Australia.


Sea of Spa and Origani or Organi in the Philippines through the Black Pearl shop



Both beauty lines offer products made from natural ingredients. But they are VERY expensive. I initially thought that it may be because the items were shipped from overseas but the actual price from the country where they came from are still pricey. There was even a line (dubbed Gold or Cleopatra or something between those lines) which costs 500,000 pesos! What's even more shocking is that I was at that store when a customer went to pick her set from this half a million worth line!

While the ones I purchased were definitely cheaper than hers, it's still too much in total for someone like me (I'm not rich at all) and I wish I should have used the money to buy an iPhone 6S version with more storage space than the one I currently have. :(

Anyway, I did promise the lovely lady who assisted me that I will write a review about their products which I actually purchased late last year (around late October I think) yet I only got to write about it now. Sadly, it won't be very promotional as she may have expected. I apologize in advance. 





Sea of Spa Bio Spa Purifying Mineral Mud Mask Review



I'll start with the first one I ever got to try from the set. This is supposedly the only one I intended to buy, being the cheapest in the bunch (around 5k - still very costly but payment was at least distributed in 3 monthly installments).


I forgot my card at their shop after I purchased this. One of the sales clerk who assisted me contacted me about it. Their team leader offered more items with a lot of discounts when I came back the next day to retrieve the card. I'd like to commend them for their honesty by the way

So about the mask, it contains olive oil, dunaliella alga extract, and more. It is used for cleansing and purifying. I did enjoy using it. 

See original product page info:
http://www.seaofspa.com/bio-spa/purifying-mineral-mud-mask-enriched-with-olive-oil-&-dunaliella2

It looks like tariff and customs fees are passed on to buyers (since it's from abroad) because this is way too expensive (amplified by about 4 times the original price).




Sea of Spa Bio Spa Nourishing Night Cream Review


Next is the night cream. Based on the packaging, it contains the following: 
  • dead sea minerals
  • dunaliella alga extract
  • omega 3, 6, and 9
  • carrot oil
  • obliphica (sea buckthorn)
  • vitamins, antioxidants
Its aim is to lessen wrinkles (not that I have any yet) and to tone skin. I enjoyed the velvety texture of this cream.

Organi Papaya Clay Mask for Skin Renewal Review


Unlike the first two above which originated from Israel, this one's from Australia but the same local shop sells it. It purpose is supposedly to remove outer dead skin cells. It also a nature based mask like the first item on this list. I enjoyed this more than the mud mask though. It's soothing, particularly after a tiring day with all the dust, dirt, and sun. The Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment is literally more super though and is more affordable. 

Product details: 



Origani Complexion Perfection Skin Brightening Vitamin C Bright Night Cream Review


This is the last one I got to use from the set but was actually advised to be used alongside the papaya mask. It contains vitamin C, bear berry, and licorice. It works against sun spots and age spots. It's also sealed with an Australian Organic Certified Processor with no animal testing done and is 100% naturally derived. 

Product info: 



Origani Replenishing Manuka Honey Soap Review


This was given for free as an add on. The same applies to the eye cream sachets (see feature image above) and the free facial vouchers (which I did not use anymore because they may offer me additional products if I go back). Thank you for the discounts and freebies nonetheless along with free skincare regimen advice such as refrigerating beauty products upon opening the package to make them last longer and preserve the effectiveness. 

And yes, the soap is indeed replenishing as the product name suggests. 

Product page: 


Overall Review


All in all, the set costs almost 25k (with the first one in 3 installments and the rest payable within 6 months). While these are luxurious and you'd really feel like royalty while using them, it's definitely not worth it. You can easily buy an alternative brand with the same type of product for a cheaper cost. 

Prices doesn't guarantee effectiveness either. While these are really pampering in general, they don't actually provide noticeable results. I went against advice of using them sparingly in order to last them for months. I used them generously instead just so I can consume everything faster. The result? Similar to my statement above - that cheaper products are far better in terms of effect. 

So in conclusion, your money is better off used elsewhere unless you are like the lady I mentioned at the intro who can afford a 500k beauty regimen set. As for me, I regretted this a lot and swear to never be talked into buying anything similar ever again. 


Update, December 2016

A fellow buyer contacted me through Twitter about his concerns over this local distributor company. He graciously allowed me to use the photos he shared and his story as well, albeit anonymously. 

bio spa origani



Like all others, including those who posted comments below, he was wary of the possibility that he had been scammed. But like I always say, I've seen that the items were indeed legit and the prices were within justifiable re-seller range compared with the original brands sold online. 

Deceptive Marketing 


We just agreed that the marketing technique used is what's shady. It's notable that they push products, particularly expensive ones you don't really need since it's not related to your skincare concern. Considering the price of such items too, the supposed free products are but loose change.

Black Pearl VIP Card

biomarine and black pearl

This guy I had a chat with originally intended to buy just one item which was perfect for his needs (the Pomegranate Facial Peel above for breakouts). But whoever assisted him encouraged the purchase of more costly options which he won't be needing much anytime soon (like anti-ageing regimen). 

While there are numerous freebies including a VIP card for free facials with RF slimming sessions, the total cost of what he paid for may not be worth it since he doesn't plan to use some of the items and services. He'll be paying around 5k per month next year for the total 60k bill (Philippine peso). 

February 2017 (Update)

Another previous buyer approached me on Twitter recently and allowed me to use the photos for this post. 



Based on her statement and on more recent comments below, it looks like the original price of the items are actually cheaper. The Black Pearl brand is what's expensive, not Sea of Spa; although I'm wondering why they have the bag with that logo. 




Some of the previous buyers have also started a Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1754010211584234) and initiated DTI (Department of Trade and Industry) mediation. Join the group or contact everyone active if you're interested in joining a class suit action they were planning to organize. 

Update: 
As of August 2017, the Facebook support group for complaints is no longer available.

    1. Oh, I received numerous freebies like the soaps, the samples, and vouchers which are supposedly good for several spa visits but I never used them.

      It's not really a scam. Their products are just too expensive.

    2. Good thing nga, yours was only 25k. I lashed out twice the amount. Although, they did give me a lot of freebies talaga. Siguro, if ittotal ko yun lahat ng binigay, nasa 100k sya. Kaya lang, yun nga. Mahal. So expensive. I regret it really. But I guess I'll just make the most out of it.

      And yes, it's not really a scam. Just really, really way too expensive.

      sad lang na hindi ako nagresearch ng sobra. as in, I was really just in it for the honey peel. Magaling yun sales strategy nila swearr. I heard na they have artists as customers :)

    3. I usually avoid the area where they're at whenever I see their stalls in some malls now. :)

      That cash could have bought numerous drugstore cosmetic brands or even branded ones that are far less expensive.

  3. When the team leader demonstrated their product to me I got offered 4k for the origani mask, day cream, and the honey soap. Kahit malaki yung discount na binigay sakin di ko pa rin kinuha kasi it's still expensive. Though I am really tempted to accept the offer given to me it's still to expensive for me.

  5. I got scammed and tried forwarding the concern sa FTEB Mediation. Grabe sila. They will insist that it was an issue on the change of mind when in fact, they scammed me into buying their product. Malapit ko nang i-forward ito as a class-action suit against their marketing tactics.

    7. I have the second FTEB Mediation with them today. After not calling me for almost 3 months, they had the CC company charge back all the good to me kasi nasa akin pa raw. Mind you, they refused to accept the goods back kasi daw di pa tapos ang kaso, but they alleged to the CC company that the goods are in my possession. Grabe talaga.

    9. During the first mediation, they offered to give me 50% of the 160k. Sabi ko no. I can no longer afford it. I told them that the reason why I was complaining is because of their misleading marketing strategy. At that time, all the products are with me. I told them that I want to return it. Sabi nila after we settled. Pero lumipas ang New Year there was no reply from them, even after my assistant tried calling the office. Then they claimed sa CC na since nasa akin pa rin daw ang product, they have to charge me. Deceptive, di ba?

    10. Just an update: They failed to show up sa mediation, in which this os now escalated to adjudication of DTI. They advised that if you want to file a complaint, we do it now to be considered as a class action.

I am in the process of submitting the position paper to argue their marketing strategies. Based on the description laid out by DTI, they perfectly fit the deceptive marketing practice.

  6. Yup may panloloko talaga. Part of the package was a VIP Card which they said will be honored in all branches nationwide, unlimited for 5 years plus I can bring friends or family. Services include free facial, spa or even massage. They made me believe that some branches have spa centers in major cities. NOW, they say my VIP card will not be honored in other branches except for that one where I bought the products BECAUSE THE RULES HAVE CHANGED.

  15. hi guys! i had a funny experience with this just yesterday in SM North Annex Bldg...like some of you, hindi din po ako mahilig mag-give in for a product sampling especially sa mga mall coz i know it'll consume much of my time...but, i don't know, i just found myself lending part of my arm for the saleslady to put on their manuka product and showed me how my skin peel, after peeling she puts on the moisturizer and viola! my skin is so soft and smooth...it looks so effective that is why i sat down and asked for more info...she offered me the manuka for 6,700 plus 8,000 for the moisturizer, my jaw almost dropped after hearing about the price, it so happen that i am e self-confesed kuripot!�� i said no! then she offered 50% off, i still said too pricey i can't afford...then the saleslady called her so called boss, an australian guy who claimed to be the kiosk owner, he offered another discount for that day only coz he said he is about to leave that day and no more special discount if ever i'll decide to buy the next day, he even offered to charge his creditcard the discounted amount he will give as a "christmas gift" daw for me�� after so many no's their last offer is only 2,500 pesos, but still a no for me!��...lesson, if you are about to talk to sales persons in the mall be sure you have a very strong self control...and if you are interested with their product and wanted a very good discount say no first until u get the deal u want...��

    I bought their peeling mask for 5k ata which I really wanted. May freebies na kasama. Tapos they offered free facial for the day. Sabi ko ayoko ng may humahawak sa face ko. Haha!

  18. i also got the same experience around november last year.nagsample lang sa kamay ko yung pinay sales lady tapos nung nicheck ko yung price ng mud mask,it's 4k.sabi ko mahal,tapos inoffer niya sa akin yung discounted price,2.4k.binili ko din.after nun,inoffer ako ng sample facial.pinay din yung nag-assist sa akin sa facial then dumating yung may-ari na pollish.natuwa siya kasi ang bilis nung effect ng product sa akin since i'm a type B+.ayun,nag-offer siya nung black pearl products with lots and lots of freebies.as long as gamitin ko lang daw yung product and give a review.so parang ipopromote ko lang yung products nila.55k yung babayaran ko pero lahat ng maiiuwi ko na products are worth more than a hundred thousand.no joke,halos lahat ata ng nasa stall ibinibigay na sa akin.plus may vip card.tempting kasi super dami talaga nung products.pero sabi ko hindi ko kaya yung 55k.tapos nagmark down pa siya hanggang sa umabot kami ng 25k.parang it's now or never yung offer.pero buti na lang nanindigan ako sa 'no' ko na answer.

  19. Actually overpriced talaga yung products nila. They tend to make you believe that you're buying an expensive product because of the brand Black Pearl but they only give you Sea Of Spa products which is the cheaper line. That's why you get the feeling that naka discount nang malaki but the truth is the products are way too overpriced. Panloloko talaga. I searched a few online shopping sites and found out that Biomarine by Sea of Spa night cream cost only around 15$ that's roughly 700php. And to think i got it for 5500php kunyari pa na may free na eye serum. They offered it initially at
    php20k, then 10k hanggang sa umabot sa 5500php. And worse, I already purchased the peel for 6700 ealier. Naka ilang tambling din yung price. After the transaction mga ilang oras din akong natulala. May mali eh. Until I googled for some answers. Panloloko talaga. Ok lng if we spend basta tama lng ang presyo. I hope they get what they deserve.

  20. I have purchased a product from them yesterday... i was given a big discount by the owner, From 17k to 6k.
    I tried a sample on my skin. It's good since i also tried high end products.
    I still have to see the effects after few months.
    If you're a trigger-happy person. Dont bring a card that has high credit limit. Just bring cash. You'll never know what kind of salesman u'll meet at the mall. ;)

  23. Good day. I experienced the same thing yesterday. Bought the manuka honey exfoliating cream then they offered me free facial. Since they learned i was getting married they did the same thing of offerring me alot of freebies and that vip card for 67000 but my card only allowed 30k. Should i still go back to settle it? They said the freebies will be given to me after i gave the balance. They only gave me the 4 natural botox products. Thanks!

  25. I bought their manuka exfoliating cream product for 4k. They gave me free facial and started applying this natural botox product. They gave me this for 67800 plus the vip card plus alot of freebies. My card could only handle 30k. They released the botox products and the vip card but they will release the others after i settle. After reading this, im scared to go back. Especially if the other products are with them naman

  27. Hello po, May nakagamit na po ba sa inyo ng Origani Manuka honey peel for 3-6 months na po? May visible effect po ba? Nakakakinis po ba talaga yun ng mukha especially acne scars? Mapimples po kasi mukha ko kaya mabilis po ako maencourage na bumili. May nagoffer po sa akin ng 5k na origani manuka honey peel with free jericho acne soap. Nakuha ko p lng po yung soap, dahil nagdown n ko ng 1k, iniisip ko po kung kukunin ko pa ba yung origani manuka honey, eh hindi naman po madali makaipon ng 4k.

    Any experience po with origani manuka honey peel? Should I buy po, o huwag na?

  33. Hi! Same experiemce here in Festival Mall (Cinderella Boutique). I was just passing by to go to a bakeshop then nagdemo na sila. Sobrang convincing talaga since may result talaga. Ung BIO MARINE MUD MASK ang inoffer nila sakin since may mga blackheads daw ako. It costs Php 4,800 then I refused since I dont jave a budget. After awhile sabi ni TL he will just give me the morning cream for 50% off then the night cream for free (each cost 4.8k) sabi ko wala talaga.. Pero si ce gusto ko daw talaga nung mask, he will give it for 2,400 nlng them free na ung dalawang cream. Malapit na talaga ako bumigay pero napaisip ako kasi bibili ako ng cake for my son's birthday na worth 3k kaya I cant really afford it. Then nagbigay sila ng contact no.sakin para if ever ready nko bumili mainform ko sila para may discount parin. This happend last Feb.14 - valentine promo daw..
    Pero eto ang nakakagulat, nagsearch ako about this and may online shop na from Israel talaga and kasama sa products niya etong SEA OF SPA and BLACK PEARL (they are under one company), nagcocost lang siya ng 400php pag kinonvert, so parang napaisip ako na sobra naman ung patong nila then nagkaron ulit ako ng URGE na magsearch sa EBAY. Nakita ko USD13 lang siya around 600-700 lang kasama na shipping fee. So I order na. Biruin niyo ilang Bio mArine na mabibili mo sa Php4,800 then I saw the Black Pearl din sa EBAY (the one that cost 500k on the boutique), guess what.. 50k lang siya dun then sa Israel OL shop aroumd 20-30k lng.. So kaya wala naman akong regret sa pagbili ng Sea of Spa Bio Marine since 600+ lng bili ko saknya and di ako nagpaaffect sa sweet talks nila..
    Any update sa case nila??

  37. Hi! I also have the same experience earlier today at SM BF. Muntik na ko maloko. Naglalakad lang din ako nung lumapit yung Pinay sales lady para magbigay ng voucher na may naka-print na 5% discount. And then tinry na nya yung Organi Manuka Honey Peel Exfoliating cream sa arm ko. Tapos dinala na ko sa mismong kiosk nila kasama yung Israeli. Tinanong name ko, age ko, ginagamit kong product, san ako nakatira, san ako nagwowork, kung married na ko o kung may anak na ko. Sales strategy. Sasabihin nila you look younger than your age. Sabi pa nung Israeli girl, pede ba daw nya ko ireto sa brother nya na 30 y/o. Haha! Andami nilang ganap. Pinakita pa ni Israeli girl yung wallpaper nya na wedding picture nya. Pinakita din nung Pinay girl yung photo nya na super daming acne pero nawala "DAW" because of Organi. Tapos nagtanong na ko ng price, 6,700Php daw, napanganga ako, sabi ko too expensive. Sabi nung Israeli girl, "since you are maganda and I like you for my brother, I'll give you 40% discount" 4k na lng daw. Nag react yung Pinay, "40% discount ma'am?! We only have 5% off." I looked at her eyes and there's something wrong, she doesn't look sincere. Sorry, ate, kulang pa yung arte mo. Taga teatro tong kausap mo. Pero, pinairal ko pa din yung kabaitan ko at niremind yung sarili ko na wag maging judgmental. Baka mali lang ako. So yung reaction ko, namamahalan pa din. The Israeli girl offered me a free facial for that day and facial voucher pati yung pra sa eye bags ko. Free. Sabi nya anak daw sya ng owner ng Sea of Spa. At sya daw ang pipirma sa receipt ko because the Pinay sales lady is not allowed to give me that huge discount. After several minutes of convincing me, I asked if they accept credit card. The Filipina girl said "Yes". So I handed my Security Bank card. She asked me if I have a BDO or BPI card, i asked her back "Why?" Sabi nya BPO and BPI lng yung terminal nya sa kiosk. So she invited me upstairs sa Sea of Spa clinic na may mga foreigner staff din. They're convincing me to also buy the day cream at a discounted price of 2k (original price is 7,600). It took me awhile to think if I will purchase the day cream too. While thinking, I grabbed my phone, and searched for Organi Manuka Honey Peel reviews and I was shoked by the negative reviews all over the net. I showed the Pinay girl what I saw. Sabi nya, madami daw gumagaya sa kanila and they do not sell online because of that reason. Iba daw yung picture nakita ko sa net, green yung packaging, sa kanila brownish. So I started to doubt na talaga. Nahihirapan na yung pinay sakin, so she called the Israeli girl from ground floor again. Sabi ko, I'm afraid of any allergic reactions. Sabi nung Israeli girl, pipirma daw sya sa receipt ko na money back guarantee if something bad happens on my skin but she will assure me daw that I will come back to say "Thank you." Sabi ko I'll think about it over lunch and I also said that I'll ask for my friend's suggestion. Pero keme ko lang yun. Gusto ko na lang makaalis with my uncharged credit card. Sabi nung Israeli sales staff, I may not get the same discount next time. Sa isip ko, I don't really care. Madami na kasi akong nabasang negative reviews. Sana ma-stop na business nila sa Pilipinas. Marami pa silang pedeng maloko. ��

  40. Same thing happened to me. I purchased manuka peel for 6700 when they offered free day cream which costs around 8k. They even offered free facial for 2 using their botox line which products cost 67k. The result was instantaneous. We really saw the result - pores reduced, laugh line reduced, eyes lifted. Then they offered to give us 2 sets of the botox line plus 10 other Sea of Spa items plus vip card with unlimited botox facial and free 60 rf for 3 years for 2pax for only 60k. Because we were impressed by the result of the facial plus the convincing power of the isareli owner, we purchased total of 66,700. She even offered she will pay for the interest on the credit card if i opt for installment. After they swiped the card for 60k, the israeli owner said she wanted to pamper us so she even gave us gold facial (worth 22k) for 2 for free! Again we were impressed on how it works. The israeli then offered the gold cream (worth 168k a bottle) plus lifetime membership with unlimited gold facial and unlimited rf for only 40k!! We said NO this time. When i got home i am itching to know the product for some reason and found this :( I just called my cc provided and was advised that payment has been posted to the merchant already. Anyone who can give advice on how we can claim our money back? I really do feel their marketing is misleading its customers.

  45. I was just in SM BF this morning headed to Watsons but this girl approached me and tried their product on my skin. The result was noticeable and they were kind naman. I just don't know how they were able to convince me to buy the expensive product because I am too kuirpot. The original cost was P6700 and the Israeli girl named Isabel gave it to me for only P3000. Of course, anyone who was offered more than 50% discount will buy it. Same as others, they also offered me free facial but the sales agent told me that the store was full during that time, I texted her just now if they're full this afternoon, I haven't got any reply yet. They seemed equipped when it comes to skin care the sales agents and the Israeli even discussed about pigmentation and so on, in short they were convincing. My only concern now is that, is their product effective or not? was it worth the price? I am using natural honey that can be bought in Batangas for only a hundred pesos for one bottle and it's really effective. I don't know if I should return the product or see it myself if they have a good effect on me. I am just sad about the comments of others because their experiences were all the same. I hope that they don't deceive people purposely. It's hard to earn money in the Philippines and as for me, I only buy products that I truly trust and use.

Literal natulala ako after ko sya bilhin tapos ngayon ulit. Kung totoo ngang scam to at malakas kutob ko na scam nga kase pare parehas mga experience naten, hindi ko ma imagine kung bakit nila natitiis manloko. Lalo na ang pinay na yun na kasama nung israeli girl na kapatid daw nung isa pang israeli guy. Nakaka hypnotize sila. Kahit 3k lang nailabas ko which is nothing compared with your 67,800+ pesos, i still feel na naloko ako ng sobra. Naaalarma ako na parang itinuro na sa kanila itong strategy na ito with the intent na manloko. Dapat mapigilan na sila to do these things to the consumer public.

  48. Ako nung last April 24 sa SM BF. Dumaan lang ako sa my booth nila papunta sa uniqlo then my binigay yung pinay na flyer sa akin. Tinanggap ko naman tapos kinonvince niya na ako na itry yung sample nila. Sabi ko, next time nalang. Tapos paglabas ko nung uniqlo bigla nalang my pumahid sa kamay ko nung moisturizer tapos yun na nag demo na siya. Hanggang sa sumama na ako dun sa kanya sa booth nila. Nandoon yung israeli na babae na owner daw siya. Tapos grabe na yung pag convince nila sa akin. Nag refuse pa nga ako then sabi nung israeli kunin ko na daw yung isang product worth 6700 then siya na magbabayad nung ibang product na ino-offer din nila. Parang pinaparamdam nila sayo na "special" ka kaya binibigyan ka nila ng privileges. Grabe sa kakuriputan ko na to, na convince nila ako sa product worth 6700. Eh kahit nga sa watsons parang ayaw ko bumili ng mga high-end na products dun na mas mura naman compare sa produkto nila. Tapos my free spa daw ako worth 5k. Then dun ka na nila ibibiktima ulit by convincing you again to purchase their products & services worth 67+k. Yung israeli lady kunwari nagbibigay pa sa akin ng "discounts" from almost 200k magiging 67k nalang. Sabi ko wala ako cash na ngayon at yung credit card namin mag asawa hindi ko dala. Sabi mag debit nalang daw ako. Lilimasin pa ata laman ng atm namin. Na alarm na ako nun, kaya nag alibi ako na wala ako dalang atm din 2k nalang cash ko. Tapos nagdabug na yung israeli. Binagsak niya na yung pinto. Ang rude niya nga talaga. So para makalabas lang ako ng spa nila nag down na ako kunwari ng 1k. It was my first time na ma scam and the feeling was worst. Sana magkaroon ng justice sa ating lahat na naloko nila.

She's replying at my messages at first. After I told her I read a blog on complaints about how they sell bio marine products, she didn't reply anymore. I spent 2400 for the biomarine mud mask.

  51. OMG! I thought ako lang nakaexperience nito. Bought mine last year and I want to get rid of those cosmetics that's why I am looking for people who are interested to use it. Pero itong blog na to ang nakita ko, and a group of women who went through the same trauma I had. Hindi ko makakalimutan, I spent 50K for those products. And same din po ng experiences nyo na kahit alam kong ayaw ko sya bilhin, hindi ko alam bakit ko sya binili. And right after ko umalis sa store nila, natulala na lang ako at hindi makapaniwala sa nangyari. I cried, para akong natauhan pero mas nanaig ang galit sa sarili na bakit ko to binili. I don't think makukuha ko pa yung pera ko since 1 year na ang nakalipas. Still, I want to join you with your complaint, hindi para makuha ko pa yung pera ko, kundi para mabigyan ng pansin ng government ang hindi magandang practices ng business na to. All of us were deceived and they took our hard earned money. It's traumatizing. And I hope DTI can put an end to this type of business.

  55. Mine happened at festival mall Cinderella kiosk. They demonstrated black gravity mud. But instead they sold me the bio marine Purifying mud spa. Original price was 4500. the Israeli girl told me she is feeling generous and since she likes me she will give me 50% discount. I don't know for some unknown reason I fell for it. So I purchased the product. All the while I thought it was the lack
    Mud. When I got home I googled into it. I found out the amazon price is only $15. I never opened the product. I immediately texted the sales lady. I told them I will return the product and get some other items from Cinderella instead. They replied that it can't be returned anymore. Is that true. What's the fb link? I really would like to return the product. I know it's just 2400. But 2400 is 2400 especially if I feel I have been scammed with the fake discount and everything! What's the fb link please? I really would like to find out how I could get my money back. Thanks!

  56. Good day. we have been charged today at SM North Annes for 110k into two separate credit cards of my mom. I've just read about this blog when we got home after we've made the purchase. Please kindly help us on how we can return and get a refund? We are also worried that they won't keep their promise of 0% for 24 months and will be charged for another 30k. Please kindly advise and help us on what we should do. Thank you and God bless.

  61. I'm really sorry to read the bad experiences buying this product..I just bought mine today yung biomarine mudmask for php4,800 and the owner gave the day cream for free. reading the comments i now actually feel bad... Buti na lang hindi na ko nagpa persuade dun sa Black Pearl Eye Serum set worth 15k. In all fairness, nagwork naman yung product at medyo konswelo ko na mabait yung owner na nakausap ko pati yung staff..still I agree na overpriced talaga..lesson learned na to...

  62. Oh my God! Nabiktima din ako just today sa Glorietta, wala talaga ako balak bumili pero masyadong mapilit yung sales lady name nya Rowena at yung Israeli named Eddie, i was offered the mud mask for 4800 tapos may free na night cream and seaweed soap. They tried yung parang RF sa face, dami nya hanash he doesn't need my money daw, pero sinisingil ako 60k para dun sa product na yun and gagawin daw akon VIP member, nung nagsabi akong No, nag offer ulit sya na daw bahala sa 3p5k ako nlang daw dun sa tira which is 25, buti nalang hindi ako napilit. Kaya 4800 lang nakuha sa akin. Pero gusto ko maibalik yun pati ang pera ko dahil i saw it online nasa almost $10 lng yun so mga 500 pesos lang.

  63. Hi, I just want to share also my experience at the mall last Friday that ends me paying 25k for 2 night cream and 2 day cream for me and my friend. At first they showed us the cream worth 3k which is good for 1 year and well I thought it's quite good at least it takes long to use so we paid in cash right away . But when they convince us to take some skin care at their shop they started to apply and showed us the difference and the effect until they (foreigner Israeli girls) continued to give us some discounts and different freebies esp the card with her sign. The shocking is it cost 67k and they ask us to pay credit card if we can't pay it in cash. Since they saw my bank account and the content they advice me to pay all of it in cash and will get back that cash after I bring them my credit card. I don't have any card and I need to make one but in my case now I can't. I was confused and we talk quite long cuz I don't want to pay all in cash though I had already withdraw the money. So it ended like paying them 25k for 2 creams instead and didn't give us the whole set. I think the product is also good but it's really really too expensive and you're like forced to buy.

  64. Same thing happened to me just of today july 1 at glorietta 2... though i only payed 3 thousand pesos using my cc and is payable in 6 months from the original price of 6700 for the cream and 2500 for the soap..but still its a big amount of money compared to the price of some drugstore beauty products... sad to say before i came in and read this blog i already opened and used the cream on my face so no way of returning it to them and get my money back..naiyak na lng ako. only i hope and pray that this will works for me. Oh GOD please.. now i feel so damn stupid.. after reading all your complaints.. nasa huli talaga ang pagsisi!

  65. WAHHH. Naloko ako kanina sa Glorietta 5. Nacurious ako sa brand so I researched muna bago gamitin yung mga nabili ko. But I can't beleive it, naloko ako. Kahit Php5,000 lang yun, it's still my hard earned money. nakakalungkot bakit may ganito. What I got was Delicage peeling mask, night cream and mud soap. Kala ko i got huge discount yun pala, ako yung naloko. This is my first time maloko since I usually don't entertain too pushy sales person. tsk tsk tsk. Anyways, effective ba naman ba yung products nila?

    1. I personally enjoyed the mud mask. The rest are just okay. I don't know if it works for others though but in general, all items were quite overpriced compared with the usual price you'll see online for the same item (although you may want to consider customs fees or what not).

  66. Hi maria! do you know what particular brand their facial massager(worth P11k daw per session) . the Israeli lady convinced me to buy it for P80K with unlimited products of my choice every time i visit their store. it seemed their strategies are similar after i read the comments above. I almost purchased it considering the freebies i am getting. Good thing i quickly leave to catch my flight.
    but sadly i shelled out P6,700 for the Manuka exfoliator w/ freebies. There is something fishy of the product prices.

  67. I'm so glad I read your review and everyone's comments before using my purchase from them. I can't believe I fell for all their sales talk since I'm very kuripot and rarely entertain sales people. They offered me the Bio Marine Pealing Mask with free soap and day cream for 6,700. The Israeli salesperson even added a free facial. I thought it was really cheap then but I feel so stupid right now. :( Was anyone successful in returning their products and getting refunds? Would really love to get advice from you on how to get my hard-earned money back.

  68. Hi any update po regarding sa issue? Ako naman po sa glorietta nabiktima. Una hinarang ako ni ate girl ung sales lady nila nagbigay siya sakin ng maliit na soap then ako naman kinuha ko. Tapos hinabol niya ako sabi niya mam eto try niyo din toh. Hanggang si pinasok niya ako sa loob ng shop nila sa cinderella then ayun na lumabas ni ateng foreigner. Then nagtalk na siya sakin. Hanggang sa binigyan niya ako ng free facial treatment sa halagang 11k basta bibilhin ko ung product na 55% discount na daw para sakin which is 3k na lang na dapat 6700 ung price. Tapos si ate girl na sales lady sinasabd niya sakin "swerte mo girl, kunin mo na yan. Ikaw lanh binigyan niya ng ganyan kalaking discount blablabla" ayun hanggang sa napaswipe na ako sa credit card ko. Ang worry ko lang baka gamitin nila ung credit card ko ng wala akong alam at malaki na pala bill ko. Huhuhu and ung product pala na tinary sa arm ko nagkarashes ako. So ibabalik ko sa kanina since di ko pa nagagamit or nabubuksan ung product. May proof din ako na may rashes ung arm ko kung san nila tinary ung product. Wish me luck sa friday ko sila babalikan. Sana marefund ko pa.

Sabi sa akin sandali lang daw, then kinausap ako ng owner daw na Israeli, then usap-usap, then inoffer sa akin yung Bio Marine, then I was just shocked na yung parang naging impulsive ako, knowing na di kasali yun sa budget ko. Almost my total amount ng sahod ko na naibigay ko. Madami silang inooffer, naisip ko lang di to priority, may nakuha na sila na 6k sa akin, sa ewan ba gintong peeling mask.

  80. It's been almost a year now since I bought their products. I used them only once because it's too oily. Tightness of my skin was lost, my face looked kinda fluffy. I was only convinced to buy them because it's organic and I'm allergic to cosmetic products.

    I still believe I was scammed because the VIP Card they gave me was not honored.

    Yes I was so wrong.... and yet it's water under the bridge. Now I found the perfect product for me, i got my money's worth.

    Goodbye BlackPearl blues.

I have the letter signed and acknowledged by the personnel with the highest position present at the kiosk. I also requested for the mall concierge and security's help to witness the arrangement with the merchant.
      The mall management asked me to formally file a complaint and the closure was also monitored by the mall management.
      Merchant agreed to give a full refund. They filed it directly to the CC provider.
      I had a full refund one week after I returned the products.

  87. Hi. Yung mom ko hindi naman bumili ng products pero she availed yung inooffer nila na unlimited free facial and slimming na for 2 years daw iyon, pwede magsama ng isang family member or friend, libre na. Yung friend kasi ni mama ilang beses na siya naisama magpafacial doon kasi member din siya. Idk po, yung friend kasi ni mama half a year na nagpapafacial dun, mukhang wala naman pong reklamo, kaya naconvinced si mama. Mga nasa 60k+ yata yun pero good for 2 years. Sana maging worth it naman yu pero I told her na wag na bumili kung offeran siya ng products nila after ko mabasa reviews ninyo. Kakaavail lang niya so nagresearch ako agad. I'll get back to you po if naging okay (hopefully naman) or kung may problem.

  89. Hi my mom bought products last week for around 40k. Sabi nya ganun din ung nanyari sa kanya. She wants to leave the store na, but they won't let her. They were very good at this strategy. Gave her many discounts/vouchers and made her feel special. My mom was so stressed because they were stalling her that she eventually agreed to buy the products.

    Just today we tried to return the products and ask for a refund. But they won't agree. They suggested to prolong the installment of payment.

    Is there still anyway to refund the products?

Then they offered me another deal, I can avail the mud mask for only 2,400 with a free facial and I was so amazed I purchased it. I am planninh to return the product today too and I'm hoping that I will get a full refund. Hay. Hassle.
