  • I like Mary Kay for the foundation and Avon for the fun deals!

  • I am allergic to Mary Kay and Arbonne (yes, even though it CLAIMS to be hypoallergenic I get super itchy from Arbonne and a friend of mines face swelled up)
    Never tried Avon, but so far they are #1 in my book lol

  • I am allergic to Avon's Mark products but I do enjoy some of their other things. Mary Kay is way over priced.

  • Before buying or selling any body care products, it is important to check the safety of the ingredients. I like the Skin Deep database maintained by the Environmental Working Group (the folks who publish the guide to pesticides in produce).

    Avon and Mary Kay, among others, make a big public show of their support of breast cancer research and victims, yet refuse to stop using cancer causing ingredients in their products.

  • I refuse to buy Mary Kay - too pricey! (just a consumer's point of view)

  • Anyone ever try Jafra? They claim to be better than Mary Kay and Avon. I like all of them for different products

  • I don't use either but if I had to choose between the two, I would pick Avon!
