Several reports have been of suspicious and unauthorized Kluxe charges on credit cards and bank statements. We will be writing a short review about the charge.

What is Kluxe?
We did some digging and we discovered Kluxe is an online website that deals in the sales of skincare and beauty products.
The website about us page reads; “K’Luxe is committed to providing luxury products without harming any living beings. We decided that it was imperative for us, as a company and our identity, to not use animal-derived ingredients in our manufacturing process or test on animals. This in fact remains one of the biggest reason of starting K’Luxe.”
The Klux website was created by Kashyap Bheda.
According to the founder, He “worked as a flight attendant for over a decade and travelled to over 80+ countries, As my job involved working and sleeping at odd hours, my skin required a lot of care and hence I ended up trying multiple skin and hair care brands across the globe. This gave me an understanding of the products and ingredients that work and the formulations behind these products.”
He added; “In 2012, I turned vegan for reasons best known to all of us, animal cruelty. Then began the journey of looking for products that are vegan in nature, with a testing procedure that did not include animals. I was unable to find products that are clean in nature and plant-based with no harmful chemicals.”
Kashyap said, “Since I was unable to find these, I started sourcing ingredients from various corners of the world and crafting the skin care products on my own, this is where my journey began.”
Kluxe Website Redflags
The Kluxe domain is too new. It was registered in December 2021 and will expire in 2023, according to the whois record.
The address (UNIT G2, GROUND FLOOR, NO 35/1 & 35/2, SGR DENTAL COLLEGE MAIN ROAD, MUNNEKOLAL, Bengaluru – 560037) seems unclear when we checked on the map. We also discovered a company called “KB ESSENTIALS PRIVATE LIMITED” also has the same address.
Kluxe charge on credit card
If you are seeing the Kluxe charge on your credit card, it means you bought an item from the website or someone else used your card which could be a sign of fraud.
Be aware that fraudsters frequently conduct a small dollar transaction to see if a card is active. They begin selling the numbers on the black market after receiving approval. Minor unauthorized purchases are frequently an indication that the card has been compromised, so you should lock your card right away.
What to do if you didn’t authorize the Kluxe charge on your credit card
If you did not authorize the charge or you never bought anything from the company, you could be the victim of credit card fraud. You must immediately notify your card issuer by calling the number on the back of your card or logging into your online credit card account.
Your credit card company will most likely cancel your card and send you a new one. You will not be held liable for the unauthorized charges.
Also, make sure you examine all receipts from that time period to ensure you did not simply overlook a purchase you authorized. If you come up empty-handed, contact the merchant; it could be an honest mistake, and the charge can be reversed. If it’s not an error, contact your credit card company to dispute the charge.
