Original review: April 12, 2023

I opened an account over 6 years ago and paid it off. So I stopped using the account because I'm not good at business. Today in 2023 they are still charging me arrears for a dormant account. I'm being harassed with calls and SMSs for something that I am not using. The firm Shapiro Shaik call early in the morning to harass me. I don't advise you to go in business with them.

Avon has a new policy to lie to consumers about their products' ingredients. Stay away from their products. If they lie about changing the formula, they may lie about the ingredients in their products. Retinal? Hyaluronic Acid? Avon changed their product formulation on their Anew Clinical Collagen Booster Eye Lift Pro Dual Eye System. I don't care that they changed their formula, but they continually lie about changing the formula in their reviews. I have proof it changed, since I had some old product left over. The new formula has fragrance added. It is heavier, and irritating to the eye area. I have been using Avon for well over 30 years. Not anymore. They lost a customer for life due to the lies. They also hide any bad comments about their products on Twitter. They are a true snowflake company.

    For the last 30 years Avon was for me a chance to get quality skincare at a reasonable price. My mother also ordered Avon and I was hoping to pass this "tradition" to my three girls. I am not sure what is going on with this company their prices have rocketed. Avon now sells $300 creams, clearly I am no longer their market target. The quality of the products is also to be inspected... not the same. I truly enjoyed helping a local rep make sales but honestly I now get better deals and quality at Costco. The jewelry use to be great quality never faded, that stopped about 10 years ago. The clothes are acceptable quality but way overpriced. I am sad to say I will close the book on this shopping experience. The end of an area...

    I've been ordering my Ultimate Day & Night Creams online... They are quite different from what I got for so many years! The Night Cream is pink.. They do nothing for my skin! The Night Cream is a thin pink color that burns my face! It says with PROTINOL.... AND COMES FROM POLAND.. I'M SO DISGUSTED WITH THESE NEW PRODUCTS.

    I have used this eye cream for at least 7 years but the last the product burns my eyes and now the skin on my upper and lower lids are red and flakey and they peel constantly. This has never happened before.

    A little less than a year ago I joined up. I’ve sold Avon many times in the past. Always just for fun and to get the discount on the skin care, which is amazing. I have so many fond memories of Avon. My mom and sisters loved it and we used to have a ball. It was cheap to join and no pressure to recruit. Imagine my surprise when I saw the 2021 brochures and realized there was no OUTLET!! What the heck? No MARK either (I loved Mark). So many of the products we knew and loved gone. Ridiculous MLM looking cleaning products. Embarrassing and tacky. Ridiculous prices for “prestige” style cosmetics. Avon, surely you understood your customer base better than this. You guys are like New Coke. You broke my heart. It seems like 70 percent of the familiar products are gone. Why even call it Avon?

    The wife spends a ton of money on mailing out brochures with minimum results. Try to find a negative news story about Avon and you won't. Because they are all suppressed by Avon. Stories of hoarders either buying or selling it or both. Ratio of expense to sales not available. Team Leaders encourage to push Avon products to new reps before they realize the true cost of doing business. It's buy, buy, buy until your wallet died. Most of these Reps over buy just to stay in what they think is an elite group or level with Avon company.

    When I was a rep It used to be about customer service and satisfaction. Now everything is online. I don't know my rep. I have to spend $60 to get free shipping while prices have skyrocketed. Great products have disappeared, and they have demeaned themselves to selling household cleaning products. They sold out and got in bed with bigger businesses. The Avon name is gone. A once iconic company has watched Mrs. Albee walk off into the sunset.

    I was an Avon rep and a customer wanted this Santa decoration. The item looked very cute in the brochure and website so I decided to purchase on for myself. I was so disappointed when when it came. The detailed work on the faces were awful. It was so embarrassing to know that my customer bought the same product. Avon isn’t fond of reps complaining about anything so I kept quiet and may give away this decoration. I get annoyed whenever I look at it because of the cost. I never asked the customer on what she thought of it because I presumed it looked like mine. Shortly after receiving this Santa, I resigned from Avon because of the quality of some of their items and I couldn’t stand behind their products.

    Great products at an affordable cost. Love ordering online and trying new products. My favorite product is Skin So Soft which is great for your skin and as a bug repellent.

    Avon author review by ConsumerAffairs Research Team

    Avon has been empowering women to be their own bosses since 1886, the year that Avon’s founder, David H. McConnell, began recruiting women who used his products as salespeople. Today, women are still selling Avon as a way to earn extra income. Avon’s product line has expanded to include makeup, fragrances, clothes, skincare, bath and body products and jewelry.

    • Become a representative: Women who already use Avon products can save money on their own products while making money selling products when they become a representative. Representatives can sell online, in person or both.

    • One-stop shopping: Consumers can buy all of their skincare, makeup, bath and body products, jewelry and clothes from Avon, which can make shopping easy.

    • A brand for every beauty dilemma: Avon has several brands that address different beauty dilemmas, such as acne, dry skin, oily skin, men’s skin and more.

    • Outlet: Consumers can find quality products at bargain prices by shopping Avon’s online outlet sale. Save up to 65 percent on items, which change regularly.

    • Avon Foundation: The Avon Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing awareness and providing support for victims of breast cancer and domestic violence. They fund programs, encourage outreach and award scholarships for deserving women.

    The ConsumerAffairs Research Team believes everyone deserves to make smart decisions. We aim to provide readers with the most up-to-date information available about today's consumer products and services.
