Vouge Tanning Lotion not Vouge???
 
I order 5 bottles of Vouge last week feb/2013,one bottle came apart as i pulled it from the shelf to show a customer. The inside of the bottle once apart should have a clear/white 7oz. tube that holds the lotion, NOT THIS ONE the tube under the VOUGE was Black with all the Crystal 10 bottle info(and 4 Crystal 12)... I was very embarrased because it looked as if SOMEONE put an old bottle of lotion (CRYSTAL FROM AG 2006) and re-glued it into a VOUGE container... I took a flat screwdriver and hammer and poped open 5 other VOUGE bottles and every one was OLD CRYSTAL LOTION from 2006/2007... my lotion rep said they contacted AG direct and they admitted it and said they put Vouge in old bottles that were left over from Crystal....that dont sound right !!! when you look at the lotion in the bottles I recieved in 2013 it is not Vouge.. it is lumpy and obvioiusly old (smells bad) the label is clearly from the Crystal lotion(2006/2007) because Cyrstal had a clear outter shell unlike Vouge the labe was on the inner part...anyone ever had this issue...

If this is true...I'm appalled. This is quite shady and dishonest.

Did you buy it on-line or off of ebay?

Straight from my lotion rep iv been using for year ??? i only buy from reps never online but i bet the reps get it online because i see it cheaper than they sell it to me sometimes!!! all but one bottle was sealed good as if it was heat pressed backtogether and i had another bottle from one of my employees had from a different order last fall and that bottle was Crystal 10(black tube) from 2006 when i opened it as well. When you look at the lotion it was the same smell and lumpy as the 5 bad bottles. This is clearly a scam buy someone and my guess would be AG, I find it hard for a small company/person to seal up a bottle like it came from the factory...like i mentioned my rep said AG admitted it ??? either way im getting my cash back and never buying lotion that has been around for more two/three years on the market, which is sad because a lot of the older products work better that the new crap that iv been trying to sell by DS/AG/Devoted/ect...bust open your old bottles and call AG about it im sure theres a lot more out there!!! sad but true i will post some pics if its ok?

Yes, they did this about 3 years ago. It is the proper lotion, they just just used the old packaging inside the acrylic outer case. The lotion is most likely lumpy because they haven't made any in about 3 years.
