5 Questions You’re Afraid To Ask An Avon Rep

Hi friends! I enjoyed this post because these are questions from my personal experience and those of my colleagues. You may have heard one or two of them before. I’ll also give some tips on how to go viral as an Avon Rep and do you have what it takes to be successful with Avon.

Hello! This post contains affiliate links. If you make a purchase from them, I will receive a portion of the sale at no extra cost to you.

1| May I have a free sample only?


This question/phrase is understandable but many are afraid to ask it. I love giving out free samples. Simply add your name to our email subscription and you can shop at your leisure. Oh and if you know someone else who may be interested, add them too! Many Avon Reps do offer referral discounts.

2|Can you really make a good income from selling Avon?


As with any business, ask yourself what you want to gain from being an Avon Representative. Everyone has a different reason WHY they began this journey. I started because I wanted the discount. To my surprise, those initial feelings evolved into a desire to lead.

My advice to selling Avon as a career is this…..utilize all of the different ways you can earn with Avon. Network with others, learn, step outside of your comfort zone, and know your strengths. In doing all these things, you will absolutely make a great income from selling Avon and be rewarded with many opportunities to be recognized. 

3| Are there any millennial Avon Reps?

Avon is just as old a company as Loreal or Maybelline, over 150 years old. To think that younger women don’t use or sell Avon is like saying where are the young women who use Clinique? We’re everywhere.  Matter of fact, Avon has products specifically for younger women who maybe need a light coverage or a bolder lip color.

4| Other makeup companies made me break out. Does Avon do that?


After 2 years of trying and buying all things Avon, only one product produced a pimple. Other than that, I have no personal complaints at all. Everyone has a different skin profile. We are trained skin experts and can address any needs involving sensitive skin. 

Take an Avon skin quiz to find the best Avon products for your skin before buying. Take the quiz on a lunch break or from your bed and see your results. Matter of fact, I try to work my Avon business from my bed a lot.

5|I’m loyal to the brands I use now but they’re expensive. Are Avon products good quality?


There’s a concealer that I’ve used for years (it’s not Avon) but I can’t let go of it. Matter of fact, every once in a while, I start up my IPSY subscription just for fun. Honestly, you don’t have to let go of any of your loyal brands. Admittedly though, Avon has replaced the majority of the products I used to use and for several reasons.

The first is because I’m sewing into my own business when I place personal orders. Secondly, the causes that Avon represent are very personal to me. Lastly, the products are just great quality hands down and much less expensive than anything I’ve ever used.

You’re still permitted to use Avon car decals, have business cards, start a blog, and/or start another business. I wrote about some alternate businesses that were great for selling Avon online successfully. Thank you for taking the time to read about joining Avon.

Anyone can be successful with Avon!
