There are no reviews on the Nature’s Sunshine website for Vari-Gone. There are reviews on Amazon. On Amazon, Vari-Gone received 4 out of 5 stars. The majority of reviews were very positive, and the capsules seem to work at decreasing the appearance of spider and varicose veins. A few reviews stated that Vari-Gone was a waste of money, and it hadn’t worked at all. Different remedies work differently for every body.
The Bottom Line
This seems like a safe product that works for most people. The directions and side effects are clear and easy to understand. Vari-Gone contains Vitamin C, which contributes to 80% of the daily Vitamin C requirements. The membership component seems like it could be confusing to the customer. While it appears like a great discount, it is important for the customer to understand exactly what it means to be a member. From the research we conducted, a member is a sales person who distributes Nature’s Sunshine products and recruits other customers to become new members. It is important to read the fine print before agreeing to any kind of discount. To return a product directly to members and not directly to Nature’s Sunshine, makes the process of getting a refund longer.
