LiveSkinny is a weight loss system that comes with two water bottles, two filters and a 30-day supply of the LiveSkinny supplement. The official website looks like every other fly-by-night diet website with a huge Order Now button, which we often find associated with recurring shipments of the supplement. We checked the Terms and Conditions and found just what we expected, but the price is much more than we anticipated. Customers who order the trial will be charged initial shipping and handling of $4.95, $65 after 30 days and $69.95 every 30 days until the order is cancelled. There are options to pay for a 30-day system for $49.95 or a 105-day system for $149.95. There is no mention of recurring billing for these orders.

List of Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • African Mango
  • Stevia

Product Features

We searched high and low for an ingredient list for LiveSkinny and found nothing. We did stumble upon a blog that told a visitor the sweetener was not artificial, it was Stevia. The tablets are flavored so there have to be other ingredients, but no list is available. Without an ingredient list we can’t tell dieters if the supplement is safe, unsafe, worth the money or a waste of money.

We also have a problem with the fact that the company makes huge weight loss claims with no clinical or study support. Just because a company claims you’ll lose 11 pounds in the first 8 days on the supplement or 18.4% of your body fat does not mean that will happen. No one study or even a mention of clinical support is available on the website. These claims are no substantiated and should not be trusted.

As if that wasn’t enough to keep dieters from choosing LiveSkinny, there’s more. The formula was created by a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine who wanted to create a better way to hydrate the kids in his youth soccer camp – not exactly a diet and nutrition specialist. There is also the $14 return fee one upset customer claimed. You can send the product back within 30 days, but it will cost you.

Advantages

  • Multiple order options – on site and on Amazon.com.
  • Supports drinking more water to lose weight.

Disadvantages

  • No ingredient list available.
  • Customers are automatically placed on a recurring shipment plan if they order the free trial.
  • Consumers may have to pay to send the supplement back.

Conclusion

Choosing whether or not to support LiveSkinny is simple. There is no ingredient list so we don’t support the supplement. Not all dieters can take high doses of caffeine and other ingredients because of health concerns, which makes revealing all ingredients imperative.

    This review is spot on! All I did was sign up to take the sat’s and they they told me I won a free gift as long as I pay for shipping so of course as a senior in high school, who’s looking forward to losing weight for prom I fell for it! I paid the shopping then cancelled my membership immediately so I wouldn’t be charged any extra fees but once you sign in there’s noway to cancel your membership I recieved a phone call asking to pay $80 I immediately told them to cancel my membership and I would pay back the next month. Luckily they haven’t bothered me for that money.

    Hasn’t made any difference. Want to cancel my order immediately! Have tried to call customer service and email multiple times with no response and of course as you know cannot get through via phone “due to the high number of calls”…. Please cancel my order of Garcinia Cambogia effective immediately! Thank you

    I bought in to their Garcinia Cambogia capsules,and not only did it not work,this bunch of con artists ripped me off.I went for their “free trial offer”of a free bottle,just pay s&h.That free bottle cost me $148.00 in the end,and even though I took the stuff religiously as instructed on the bottle,I didn’t lose a pound.This company and the jerks that run it are thieves.

    Have any of you heard of Kevin Trudeau, 1990′s thru 2013. Currently on the run from American justice. LiveSkinny looks exactly like the Trudeau scam. Nothing can make you lose 11 pounds in 8 days except illness. There was also a scam published in American Airlines magazine back in the late 80′s early 90′s. That was drops in a bottle….USELESS. Absolutely do not get involved in this new (Old) scam.

    I sure wish I had read these responses before I had any dealings with LiveSkinny. I Agree with those posted. I believe it was all a scam. I also, called and talked with a representative of the company, who gave me the RMA number for shipping back the product that I did not want and therefore, did not believe I should pay for. I shipped back the product and was willing to accept the restocking fee but per the rep (a lesson learned). I would be getting back a credit of $128.05. I had the USPS tracking number and “Live by Deception” did receive the bottles with RMA tracking number on outside on Sept. 27, 2013. To date I have not received the credit to my credit card that they, in good faith, said would happen. I would not recommend anybody to do business with this company. I would gladly join in the class action suit. Buyer beware!!!!! This company doesn’t do what they say they will do. If they somehow do the right thing and credit for unused return product; I will post the action. But, don’t hold your breath!

    I had the same issue with them… Bought the “trial” in July 2013.. Got charged $150, after numerous attempts and “promises” from them for a $98 refund, I have yet to see my money!!! Warning… Do not deal with these liars!!! They will steal your money!!!

    I purchased items from them as well. I returned my $148 item and was told that I would only be refunded $98. It’s been two months I’ve contacted BBB and that didn’t do too much. I kind of want to sue them lol

    [Reply]

    Nora

    Layla,
    I just saw today an email coming from LiveSkinny about a product I have to pay $98 or else they will take me to collections. Then it said I owe them $148. It would be best to do a class action suit. I will also file a complaint with BBB. The more filing BBB gets, the more it could get their attention to this scam. To think we only filled a survey and was about to get a prize for doing so! Geez, this is definitely a scam!

    This company is very rude. I just spoke with someone who calls themselves a “supervisor” and she was so rude to me. There customer service is one of the worst I have ever dealt with. They charged me over $152 for these pills of which I was totally unaware of this price. Then when I called them on the date they charged me I got a RA # which this supervisor refused to take and investigate the situation. I became really upset. My husband called back and talked to someone else who was much nicer and gave us the tracking number. We are going to the PO office now to find out where it is???

    I recently signed up for free month supply. I was charged for shipping @4.95 as stated. But, then 2 weeks later I was billed for $148. When I called I was told that if returned I would be charged a $24 restocking fee or I could keep the rip-off product for 1/2 price…$74. The Federal Government needs to look into such practices of fraud and abuse.

    I just had even worse than you! I filled out a survey saying I won a prize, and at the end was the diet pills, and just pay $4.95 for shipping. They sent me 4 bottles and I thought that was the prize, the following week, I was billed $148. I said I want to return the product and I was going to report them to the BBB, some lady called very rude, and she hung up on me!

    I personally believe that all these great and wonderful positive letters were all written by the same person … probably the owner of Live Skinny. And no, ALL the terms and conditions are NOT given up front. ALL these “positive” reports are as fraudulent as the product! There simply cannot be that many people losing weight on the placebo effect.

    Stay away from this company! SCAM! The $4.95 trial fee was $65.00 and then a couple of weeks later I received more products that totaled to about $69.00. When calling to cancel you have to wait about 10 mins to learn their is a $25 restocking fee an fit may take a month to receive a refund. Everytime I called I spoke to the same nameless rude lady who said I would receive a cancelation email. I never received one. The last time I called I asked why my fee was $65.00 and not $4.95 for the trial offer. I got hung up on!!!! So my card is cancelled so they cannot steal from me again! Lesson learned never buy from tv, radio, or diet supplemt compaines!

    Very dissappointed in the product and company. They signed me for autoship against my will. Now I have to pay $15 for a reshelving fee and the postage to send it back.

    I recently purchased from liveskinny& after the free trial with no surprise deductions from my account, two weeks later $152.00 dollars was deducted. I now have to pay a 49.95 restocking fee. the customer service rep told me I was lying about calling earlier in the day because the first person I spoke with didn’t make notation that I did not want any more shipments sent to me. I wouldn’t care if this garcinia cambogia is the miracle of weight loss, they were so rude I will gladly stay fat before spending another cent with them.

    Please beware of buying any LiveSkinny product. If you’re considering this product, beware that LiveSkinny customer service is horrible. If you buy direct from them or have to deal with them at all, you’ll regret your purchase. “Kerry” in customer service was very rude and talked to my wife like she was stupid. I’ve been in customer service for over 35 years and rarely see this level of substandard behavior in a sales or customer service organization. Some people may have had good results, but if you have to deal with the company, you’ll regret your purchase.

    live skinny is a SCAM! They offer a 14 day trial?? most legitimate companies offer at the very least 30 money back guarantee but this company is making money off of consumers by doing a bait and switch, saying $14 to try and if you like (after 30 days) then it will cost you 65.00. This is how they make their money a the product is useless as this review has proven. Shame on them and it’s only a matter of time before they are out of business. I’m going to file further complaints against this so called company.

    Worse company ever. Don’t waste your time or money. The guy who runs it is a real creep. Don’t trust what he states he is selling you. People are getting sick on it and it doesn’t work. I got sick myself and they do not want to give you your money back. someone should take him to court for false advertising really check what he has in those capsules of his. What a scam

    I’m on the fence about getting “live skinny.” People say the pounds are coming off but what happens when you’ve lost enough? If you stop taking it, do the pounds come back on? Do you have to work out allot with this product?

    Bought one bottle to try but when I got the shippment there were four bottles anf a bill for $148.00. Called about it and told them I only wanted to just try one and wanted to send rest back if it worked. Opr. wasn’t nasty about it but wasn’t nice either. Told me she would return half of the monies to my card billing which she did. So far I see no weight lose and I am not a heavy eater anyway and still no weight lose. Am wondering if I should double the dose as the only things in the caps are50 mg of calcium’chromium 200 mg., potassium 50 mg, and garcinia cambogia 1000 mg, and80% oh hca{hydrocxyclric acid} Over priced cheap vitamin as far as I can tell {just go buy a bottle of Vits} so much cheaper. Never again!!!!

    Starting my 2nd month on Live Skinny products.I love the way I am feeling. I have more energy, less cravings and eat 1/4th of what I used to eat. My moods have improved, which my kids are loving :) . I love the natural energy that lasts all day. I kept expecting my energy to decrease after time, and It has yet to happen. In the past I have taken stuff to boost energy and yes some worked, but not all day and not with out feeling jittery. After all the others products I’ve tried and working in the weight loss industry for over a decade…I know how amazing and valuable finding products like this is.

    Love this stuff.. Had it for about a month and already lost 16lbs.. I’ve tried all kinds of diets including those drops you take, which do work, only because you have to starve yourself as per their ‘plan’.. Not fun in my opinion. Glad i found this stuff. I buy it in bulk… keeps me energized and happy.. and have been getting numerous compliments on how good i’m looking. Can’t beat that, right?

    I just bought the “90 Day Fat Buster Summer Challenge,” that comes with 90 days of green coffee bean, 30 days of raspberry ketone, and 30 days of Garcinia Cambogia. In my order comfirmation it gave me a plan, to take the coffee ones twice a day the first month and so on, however it says to take it with the African Mango Water bottle system and I didn’t order that. Do the pills still work well without the water bottle system?

    The live skinny products are amazing. All of these negative reviews about cost and charges. Well…..they state right in there terms how there service works. How can you say bad things about a product that really works just because you didn’t read terms before you ordered. I have paid way more for mthly wieght loss products and have not had near the great results that I have had with LiveSkinny. If you really want to loose the weight money shouldnt matter. Look how much you spent on food getting heavy. Much more then my LS every mth.

    Liveskinny has gotten a bad rap in my opinion. I’ve taken this stuff every day since the beginning of january. Wasn’t a fan of the water bottles only because i forget to drink the water. However, i love the pills they have. I was at my family’s this weekend for Easter, and let me tell you. The compliments I got just made me glow. I was told numerous times that i look like i’m losing alot of weight and that i look amazing.. talk about a confidence booster!!!! I recommend this to anybody looking to lose a little to alot of weight. Dont let the grumps fool you, this stuff works

    I understand that dr. oz doesn’t endorse the products but he does do a really great job showing how the products work. and hes talking about all companies that have stuff like green coffee bean. that Is the ingredient. Anywho, I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks now and lost about 7 pounds, which is awesome cause I haven’t had the time to really start working out. I think I can justify the cost.

    I’m not sure what you mean by having an accent, all the people I’ve ever talked there speak perfect English and I believe they’re on the West Coast. But this company isn’t a scam, i’ve been on a plan with them for about 4mo now and i’m very happy with it. i did sign up on a trial, but unlike alot of other people, i read the fine print so i was prepared for the charges. But found that once i called them to cancel i could actually lower my rates, and the call center has prices different from online so they helped me. i’ve lost 34lbs thus far. I highly recommend these guys. Very nice people and great product

    I have been taking Live Skinny for five weeks now. I have lost 12lbs in this time. I never was a big water drinker even though I know your body needs lots of it everyday. The water bottle system is FANTASTIC! It helps me keep track of how much water I am drinking or need to keep drinking everyday. I love that they have filters. The African Mango is amazing it has helped me with my cravings and controls my portion size when I sit down to eat my meals. I am so thankful for this product and will definitely continue using.

    I started Live Skinny almost 3 weeks ago. I immediately notice an increase in my energy level, a decrease in my cravings and only able to eat half of what I used to eat. It literally blew my mind. I expected this to be just like every other weight loss supplement that didn’t work, or one I didn’t like….BUT it was the complete opposite of what I expected. I’ve now lost 10 pounds and almost down a pant size. I feel way better, my moods seem better and I am actually sleeping straight through the night. Very please with this product.

    Stylist89

    There terms of agreement state on day 18 you will receive the charge. Doesn’t anyone read their terms before they sign up. Even then the product works amazingly and is much less then the ones on the shelf at the stores. Also no fillers and the top ingredients are used. Some programs are as much as 1000 to 1200 a mth for product. LiveSkinny prices are beyond reason with the results and clean product that you get. Im sure if you keep using the product you will be very happy with the results you get for that cost.

    their was no small print off the page I went on. The page has changed since my order and it also is different if you go thru the live skinny web site vs the dr oz utube site. It allowed the option to take the checks away for being part of additional offers etc . it is a scam. they offered to rebate a quarter then a half then seventy five percent then more… this is a business scam whether or not the product works or not.
