I do product reviews for Tomoson. Since I have such a big family, I allow my kids to go through and choose things sometimes, and even my wonderful guy sometimes finds cool things (check out his review on some swimwear he got) to review. My social media is large enough that I refuse to pay for things to review, so that is one of the rules I abide by on Tomoson. If a brand asks me to pay for their product, I will not get it. This has been happening a lot lately and is getting very discouraging. With that said, I have a bunch of products that brands decided to put in the system as shipped, that were … never shipped. How do I know this? Because these were items I was to get with coupon codes. Typically a brand gives you a coupon code to get the item for free on Amazon. You go through all the steps as if you were buying it and at the end after putting in the code, you should wind up with a free product. I pay for Amazon Prime, so I also get 2 day shipping for free, so I never pay anything for the things I am reviewing.
The following brands sent me coupon codes that did NOT make the product free, OR that expired too fast, or didn’t work but refused to reply to me when I messaged them. However I have to review the product because they put in the system that they shipped it and its like jumping through hoops to get these items removed. Trust me, I used to try. Now I contact the company a few times, request they decline me in the system, some do. The ones that do not will go on this page so I can get credit for the review. As I see it, it is not my fault that these brands refuse to cooperate or do things the right way. I will NOT be linking to their products, so you can search them if you are interested.
For the record, if you are one of the brands listed here, and you want your product removed from this page, I am willing to. It is very simple. DECLINE me in the system or contact Tomoson to ask them to do it if you don’t have any idea how. Once I have confirmation that has been done, I will remove the product.
RegenFX Anti Aging Moisturizer Cream
I got no response from this company when I emailed them TWICE to ask them to remove me (Decline me) in the back end of the system.
A blurb from the company:
”Formulated to jump-start skin’s collegen production and restore elascticity and vitality, while promoting and maintaining younger-looking skin, longer. The serum features REGENFX exclusive Super 7 Peptide + Complex technology, the result of five years of research and six patents to reverse the domino effect of cellular aging.”
Velocity Boards Retro Cruiser 22″ Skateoard
The response I got from this guy was less than stellar. He was actually a bit rude in his reply where he indicated that I had received a coupon code. I responded and then never heard back to that.
A blurb from the company:
”Velocity Boards PP Retro Cruiser Complete 22″ Banana Skateboard

42 BEES Slant Tip Tweezers
I got no response on my numerous contacts of this company requesting they remove me from this campaign. The coupon code did NOT make these free as they had originally stated.
Blurb from the company:
”42 Bees Pointed Tweezers are the perfect precision tweezers for all types of tasks. Their extra sharp points make them easy-to-use ingrown hair tweezers that will allow you to whisk away hairs without damaging already irritated skin. Use them as first aid tweezers for removing ticks and splinters. With their revolutionary design and durable stainless steel construction, the tweezers are even ideal for hair removal from difficult-to-treat areas like nose hair, ear hair and hair along the bikini line. They even come in a PVC tube for sanitary safekeepingbetween uses.”
Not Just A Gadget Stainless Steel Pint Cup
Thought this would a great, on-the-go cup, however this is another company that just clicked “Shipped” without so much as a contact with me. No email, no nothing. I have reached out to this company only once, but I don’t have time to keep trying. These companies need to quit with the “shipped” when nothing has been shipped.
Blurb from company:
- Made of premium 18/8 food-grade stainless steel;100% toxin free and BPA free.
Volume: 10 oz, appr.350 ml.
Extremely durable and unbreakable with electropolished interior
Great replacement for unreusable plastic drinking cups.
Stackable, transportable and perfect for travel, events and other outdoor activities.
Summer Fedora Hat
I was ordering this hat for someone specific in our home to test out. It’s a really smart looking hat, but as is usual with many of these companies, it was marked as shipped and never shipped. I have replied back to this company on several occasions explaining that I never ordered the hat, nor have received it, so please remove me. Not once have I had any reply, except another request to let them know the status. I’m tired of saying the status, the review is due, so yeah – not a product I have in my possession or that I can tell you about.
Blurb from company:
- Finished with high quality material, breathable,light weight and well-ventilated.
Classic fedora hat, never out of fashion.
Trimmed with a black band along the brim as an added touch..
Available in different colors, great gift idea!
One size fits most: app 5cm(Brim);app 56-58cm(Circumference)
Cozyna Coffee Grinder
I just loved this product and what I read about it. I really loved the idea of a manual coffee grinder so I could have fresh grounds in the morning to serve my entire pot of coffee I tend to consume before noon. Never received, yet they marked that they sent.
PRECISE AND CONSISTENT GRIND: With a Ceramic Conical Burr, rust free, with wide range, one can grind from espresso to French press
ADJUSTABLE GRIND SIZE: No need to unscrew the entire grinder in order to adjust the grind size. Simply turn the knob clockwise or counterclockwise in order to reach perfect size for any coffee drink such as espresso, drip, french press, cold drip, and other
STAINLESS STEEL BODY: The coffee mill is made of high grade stainless steel which increase its durability.
PORTABLE: The small size of the coffee grinder makes it easy to take it anywhere.
So hopefully this list will not continue to grow, and I feel terrible that I had to do this, but it is the only way to verify these reviews and not jump through hoops to get these brands to realize that you don’t mark something shipped if it is not actually shipped.
