There have been a lot of different product on the weight loss market for a long time already. The problem is that since there is such a high demand, there are a lot of companies trying to be better than others. Most of them don’t bother perfecting their product, but spend millions on marketing – this way they are more visible and manage to make more sales. The problem is that the companies that spend these millions on product development and research are often left in the shadows with their near perfect supplement. The same goes with the weight loss patches in my opinion.
There are a lot of slimming patches that aren’t so great, but because they are advertised a lot, they get a lot of attention. Just to name a few I could point out The Pink Patch, Slimlife Patches, Silver Patches and also The Slim Weight Patch. All of these except the last one give out free samples to their customers in return of the credit card details. This is considered somewhat a fishy marketing technique in the internet, and in most cases you will “accidentally” subscribe to their product – you will get the first month for free but after that you will receive more and more each month and it can be really difficult to stop them from charging your credit card. This is the biggest reason why I always tell my customers and friends to stay away from free samples – if they have to give it away for free, it is most likely no good.
I am not saying that these products that give out free samples are absolutely useless, but what I am saying that for the sake of your finances, you should avoid them. Always try to find a reliable supplier who offers a long term guarantee for their product – if it doesn’t work for you, you can always ask the money back. The benefits of this is that everyone is happy – you will get your cash back, and the company will learn more about the product. If they have to give out more and more refunds, they will realize that they need to do more product development.
Avoiding empty promises is another thing that you should look out for. Today these are carefully masked inside fake customer reviews, and they can always say that they never said that. It’s hard to spot, but the website could have a nice highlighted box with quotes around it, saying something like “I could fit in to my high school jeans after two weeks of use” -Jeanne 45. This is clearly something that is put there only for your eyes – if you have had trouble fitting in your jeans lately, this is most likely something that you will notice and buy those weight loss patches – or at least get the “free” trial.
