Who writes your reviews?
The independent and candid reviews on Truth In Aging are authored by me, Marta, the Truth In Aging Team and members of the Truth In Aging Panel of Reviewers. They are based on our personal experiences as consumers. Our opinions are shaped by the product's performance and by our individual knowledge of the ingredients and published findings of research studies. These reviews should not be interpreted as medical advice.
Do you filter your reviews?
No, we do not filter our reviews. We give a thorough and objective evaluation based on testing for at least 30 days. Only products that have been through this process and are recommended are then selected for the Truth In Aging shop.
I’d like to write a review. How do I sign up?
We are always on the lookout for new testers and reviewers! If you would like to be considered to join our panel, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive full instructions.
I’d like to suggest a brand/product for Truth In Aging to add.
We’d love to hear it! Please contact us at email@example.com.
Can I order a product not carried on your website?
If we already carry the product’s brand in the shop, we may be able to special order it for you. Please note, however, that all special ordered products are final sale and may not be returned. To inquire about this, please contact Customer Care at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’d like to test before I buy. Can you send me a sample?
For certain products, it may be possible to send a sample. Product/shipping fees will be applied unless shipped as part of an order. To find out about sample availability, please contact Customer Care at email@example.com with your location, full name and the product(s) you would like to try.
I want to buy a product that you reviewed and I can’t find it in the shop.
We review a lot of products, and not all of them make it into our shop. Usually, if the product is sold in the shop, a link to it will be included within the article. If you are not sure, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let you know if it is available. If we don’t sell it, we may well be able to tell you where you can buy it, or even suggest similar products that we do sell!
How do I know if I’ll be allergic to a product?
We encourage all customers to educate themselves on our products and ingredients prior to making a purchase. Our Customer Service team is highly knowledgeable about our products and happy to answer any questions you may have; please contact email@example.com. Unfortunately, we cannot accept used items back if you are sensitive to some of the ingredients, or have had an allergic reaction. To learn more, including details of how to conduct a patch test to see if an allergic reaction is likely, please review our Returns Policy.
My airless pump does not work, the product won’t come out. What to do?
Airless pumps are a fairly new technology. It keeps oxygen and bacteria out of the container, preserving the integrity and in many cases - efficacy of the product. If your pump is not functioning properly and the remaining product won’t come out, there are 2 things you can try: 1. Try turning the product upside down with the cap on and then banging it against a wash cloth-covered hard surface. While still upside down, remove the cap and try pumping a few times to see if the product begins to flow. 2. Alternatively, you can take a paper clip and insert the wire in the hole in the bottom, then apply pressure there as you pump the bottle. This will usually unstick the bottom. If this still doesn't help, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I find out when the next sale or promotion will be?
The best way to be notified of upcoming sales and promotions is to sign up to our newsletter. Find the link on the right hand side of our homepage. Better yet, as a newsletter subscriber, you are entitled to 10% off ALL your orders over $50, every time you shop at Truth In Aging!
How do I use the discount (coupon) codes?
If you received a promotional code and would like to apply it, you must first create and confirm your account. Many codes will only work if you are signed into your account when checking out. After you have added your selections to your shopping cart, proceed to checkout where you will find the “Discount Code” field on the first page for you to enter any promotional codes you may have. Make sure the code is entered exactly as it appears on the newsletter/marketing material. Don’t forget to click the ‘apply coupon’ button once you have entered the coupon. Please note, only one promotional code can be used at a time.
Help! I forgot to apply my coupon code at checkout.
If you forgot to apply a coupon code when placing your order, please contact us immediately at email@example.com. We will need your full name, order # and the coupon code. Provided that your order has not already shipped, and that the email is sent before the promotion timeframe expires, we will go ahead and credit the coupon code to all applicable products in your order. Your refund will be issued to your account once your order ships. Unfortunately, if your email is sent after the promotion has expired, or if your order has already shipped, we may not apply the coupon code to your order. We regret this inconvenience; however, because we hold regular promotions and ship hundreds of orders every week, it is impossible for us to credit all customers who do not use a coupon code at the time of checkout.
I put in my coupon code but keep getting an error/am being told it is invalid.
When using a coupon code, please note the following restrictions: - Only one coupon code can be used at a time. - Coupon codes cannot be applied to products we’ve already discounted for you (i.e. TIA Exclusives/Collections, stock up and save items & any products on sale). - We are unable to discount products of the following brands: Amarte and jane iredale. Promotional codes can generally be used up until 11:59pm PST on the expiration date indicated.
Payment & Transactions
Wait, I forgot to add something to my order! Can I add another product to my order?
While we would never deprive you getting everything you want out of the TIA shop, unfortunately, our system does not allow us to manually edit your order. Feel free to place a separate order for your next product, and we’ll do our best to combine it with a previous order. You can also add a comment in the ‘Customer Comments’ textbox at checkout, which will be sent directly to our Shipping Department.
Can I place my order by telephone?
Unfortunately, at this moment, we cannot offer a telephone order service. If you are having trouble placing an order online, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to assist you with any issues via email. If we are not able to help, please provide a telephone number and one of our representatives may be able to contact you and take your order via telephone.
