Additional Notes

Complaint: I have purchased the Just For Men beard and mustache color kit for over 5 years now and have not had a problem. I purchased a kit at a Target and when I started to use it the tube with the color at the end was opened and the gel was black (supposed to be medium brown). It stained the counter but was able to clean it. Basically all I wanted was a replacement since clearly the product I purchased was defective. I email and contacted the company and never got a response almost a month. I have tried numerous times to contact by phone but have been left on hold for more than 20 minutes and never get a person to answer. I thought I would get better customer service but it seems like no one replies and do not stand behind their product.

Desired Settlement: I basically would like a replacement of the product.

Business Response: Thank you for informing us of a complaint received by your office.  We have located the consumer email in our system and failed to respond in a timely manner.  We will send the consumer 1 replacement coupon for the defective product he purchased plus 1 complimentary for the inconvenience he experienced.

We will send him a response within our consumer system platform.  *** ******'s has been issued Case #******.
