A San Diego woman has filed a lawsuit against Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Estee Lauder for selling anti-aging creams that allegedly employ false advertising.
Debra Scheufler says she wants to make advertisers tell the truth about "age-defying" creams that don't live up to their claims. She filed a class action lawsuit in California.
"These products that tout themselves as anti-aging products really target women of my era and kind of suck us into the belief that the clock can actually be turned back, when in fact, it cannot be turned back," Scheufler said. "I wasn't getting any younger."

And if John Kerry had won, do you think any voters would have sued him for making false claims?
The judge should dismiss this case and throw her lawyer in jail.
The judge should throw them both in jail.
I hate blood-sucking trial attornies.
What a dunce!!! Like she really believed she was supposed to get younger?
Ummmm: beauty is only skin deep, but stupidity goes to the bone. Wow, and to think that I was gonna buy that there oil of Oldlay so I could lop twenny years offen mah face...
Dang it all.
I'm sorry but...ROFLMAO! This lady ain't dumb...she just wants some money.
I was going to say...BWHAHAHAHAAHAHAH...but I can't talk for laughing.
This had better get thrown out soon, or I won't be laughing anymore.
Time wasn't on her side.
LOL. They make you look younger. They don't claim to turn back or stop the aging process. Like DUH.
Yea there are no shortage of stupid peeps in america. Sadly enough. Wish we could donate some of them to other countries.
She thought it would change her birthday.
""You are claiming that these particular products prevent aging, when we know that particular claim is outrageous," Rubenstein said. "They are not going to change your birth date."
And note it's a CLASS ACTION lawsuit. Sounds like a couple of unscrupulous attorneys found a patsy, who was willing to make the charges.
Whose tagline reads, "Forget the fountain of youth, we need a fountain of smart." I love that one and this wrinkle-face could sure use a gulp.
Lord help the first company to come out with an 'anti-stupid' product that 'fails' to work for imbeciles such as this woman.
I wonder if I can sue all these male enhancement product manufacturers that spam my e-mail? Of course, the problem would be getting someone to admit they don't work....
I can just picture the phrasing of that lawsuit. "My huge manhood didn't get even more enormous when I used this product!"
I wonder if john edwards is her attorney.
Whatta maroon. Sounds like she needs some brain cell replacement!
The attached survey to this article is:
Do you agree with the class-action lawsuit against cosmetics companies selling products that claim to have anti-aging properties?
Yes, cosmetics advertising should be more honest.
No, consumers are savvy enough to know better.
Surprisingly, this survey is almost even with votes. 57 Yes votes and 60 No votes.
And what aboout that court case?
Plaintiff: he sold me this potion which he said would make me smarter, but it was a fraud.
Defendent: See, the plaintiff has gotten smarter.
Flim Flam Man!!!
"I been robbed, dammit!"
My, Lord she looks as bad as Kerry's wife?
Someone should have told them both about Preparation H years ago. It works on wrinkles and is a lot cheaper than all the high price crap.
If she means she herself as a whole wasn't "getting any younger" she deserves the double dog dolt award, but maybe she was thinking that the creams had some kind of property reversing the aging of the skin to which it was applied. The ads do kind of read that way, you know. Of course, cosmetics ads wouldn't look so elegant with an ugly disclaimer that they (as with nutritional supplements) aren't intended to "treat any medical condition" etc.
No possible post could top this one. Kudo's to you and all of your progeny.
I always get a laugh when I see a cosmetic ad that touts a new "hydroxy" formula! I laugh so hard that dihydrogen monoxide runs down my cheeks. People are such saps!
Cosmetic Caveat Emptor...
touche', that's good.
