I recently decided that I wanted to sell Avon products? How do you personally feel about Avon's products?

  • I dont have anything against Avon, but I tried selling products and it wasnt for me. If you dont want to sell products,host parties, or keep inventory you might be interested in this website www.FamilyCEOMom.com.

  • Honest opinion? I don't like them. I always broke out really bad when I used them.

  • I have nothing against them, I just like to take my product with me when I order..I hate waiting for things to come to me.

  • I see it as outdated. It's what my mother used to use when I was little. I have sold similar products myself and have found it only works well if you are good a recruiting others to sell with you. Good luck.

  • They have good products. My stepmom and sisters are very much hooked on it - me, not so much, but I'm not as well off as they are. I tried to sell Avon before, though... and it proved to be too much for me. Good luck!

  • I like most things. I order some stuff only. I do not like the nailpolish though, the two times I have bought polish I find they don't last long & chip easily its like its too soft or something Idk. But other wise yes!

  • I didn't care for anything I got from Avon. Seemed like something I could buy from Walmart for less.

  • I only bought them because I was selling them. I don't care for them though. I do remember that a product made me break out as well. I feel like they're a little on the cheap side, BUT if you really believe in the products then you can do it. I work from home and I love it, and because I believe in what I do I KNOW I'm going to succeed in my business no matter what. I also have a great Team of Moms helping me along the way, that has a lot to do with it. No matter what you do, you need to work hard at it. If you believe in yourself you can do anything.

    Best Wishes to you ! :o)

  • I won't use any of the Avon line and no one I know uses it. I guess it's like any other product line; it surely has its followers tho. I tried it for one year (had a neighbor who was a rep) Found 2 products that I liked (a cherry tint lipstick and a sea salt scrub) - when I went to order more of both 3 months later, they both had been discontinued. I tried a "made for oily skin" foundation of theirs and it left me twice as oily and broken out in acne. I tried a piece of their "special promotion" jewelry (a black onyx ring); turned me green and the 'silver' started to peel off inside of 6 wears (eventually I just threw it away). I didn't try any more products and haven't since and that was nearly 10 years ago. I guess I just don't have any confidence in their stuff.
