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.
I used to shop Avon.com in the past, for good deals on all different types of products, from lipsticks to skincare. Today, 2020, the selections are pitifully limited. No more variety. When I hover my mouse over certain glosses, it shows 20 different colors. But in clicking the actual product, it turns up only 6 colors. Wow. At least some of their product is available on Amazon and eBay.
I recently received an email from the company (Avon), to say that I’m at risk of being passed to a debt collection agency. I had no choice, but to raise a complaint with Trading Standards UK. I wasn’t told that I had to pay the invoice within 13 days of the order being placed. Because of this muck-up, I have no means to pay this “debt” - in which; I didn’t know I had built up, until I had received the email. I will NOT pay a company anything, if they can’t be bothered to tell someone if they have to pay the invoice, or not. I’m a vulnerable young adult, who has mental health issues.
- Unnecessary and unhelpful use of legal and technical language
- Contact at unreasonable times
- Ignoring and/or disregarding debtors’ wishes
- Failing to provide debtors’ and/or creditors’ with information on status of debts.
1 * for the company seems to be too good, regarding what the company is worth.
AVON Cosmetics ARE MADE OF CHEMICAL HARMFUL PRODUCTS IN POLAND. A friend of mine is selling the product of Avon secretly inside coffee shops, and she wanted me to buy something from her to finish the products she has got from them. I felt sorry for her and I bought two items from her. I used the lavender spray before bed time and it was chemical and I started having itchy eyes, skin and chest pain. Also I started having headache. Avon products are made of chemical products in Poland and are scum. Be careful and do not use and report them to the trade standard and to the police etc. Also warn people using the social media such as Facebook etc...
My Avon Representative is a very professional employee, she make sure my questions are answered, she advised me about this lotion. I am pleased with results. I asked about price, she searched the best price, I asked about product. She explained in detail how this lotion would heal my skin, as other customers had purchased product, and was pleased with results.
After trials and testing have narrowed down every time I have tried the Avon Anew product range my eyes and face swell up - been getting worse each time - last 2 times I was unable to go to work and have been at specialists on every kind of treatment. I have discovered now that the best treatment for me was to throw all the Avon in the bin and since doing so have had no problems. I have since found many others who have said the same thing about the Anew range. Wish I had known about that before I put myself through the misery.
