Do you want to make $1,000 in 90 days?

before-sept-15thI wanted to write a blog post about how to make money selling Avon as an Independent Sales Rep. But I didn’t want to come off as pushy or corny. There are so many “Make Money Online Now!” and “Be Your Own Boss!” blog posts out there already that rub me the wrong way. I’m a skeptical person myself and I doubt almost all of them.

I’ve looked up a lot of the Direct Selling companies and the commission structures are so complex I feel like my eyes start twitching just trying to figure them out. I have a number of friends that sell for various Direct Selling companies and I just want to say…..Avon is different. I’m not just saying that because I sell it myself, although I obviously started selling it because I knew it was different. As I mentioned in a prior post, my mom sold Avon, I sold it in 2003 when my oldest daughter was born and I am now selling again as an Avon Independent Sales Rep. The commission has always been very straight forward, this is a company that has been around for 130 years and there are no minimum purchases required by the Reps.

Here is how you can start making an extra $1,000 in 90 days. No strings attached. No “catches”. You sign up online to become an Avon Independent Sales Rep by going to www.startavon.com. Use reference code souzak (all lowercase letters) and complete the online application, which will take about 5-10 minutes depending on how fast you type.

You will need to input a credit card or debit card to pay $15. This is a one-time only fee to become a representative. You will receive a box full of brochures, samples and a few full size products within 5-7 business days. You now also have a fully functional, customizable e-store and website. Again, this is a one-time only fee. Your card will never be charged by Avon again as a result of this transaction.

Once you are a representative, you will begin selling with goals that slowly increase incrementally over time. Each campaign runs for two weeks and you can (and likely will) earn 40% commission on all sales based on sales goals of $150, $200 and so on with increases each campaign. These are very attainable goals. I hit them myself with minimal effort to be completely honest.

You can earn more if you choose to recruit other individuals to sell Avon, but that is not a requirement. It is included in the $1,000 in 90 days estimate so if you choose not to recruit you will make closer to $650  in 90 days. Still awesome. You personally are not required to buy any Avon products; however, I do recommend purchasing bundles of brochures which are approximately $6 for 10 booklets. Samples are never a bad idea and those are only $1-3 for bundles of them. I truly love Avon products so I do purchase full size products for myself but again, not required.

Do you want to make some easy money before the Holiday Season?  Do you have a few bills that you need to pay off? Do you just want some extra cash each month? Then Avon is for you! You can work your own hours, work from home and make money online. This is perfect for stay-at-home moms and work-outside-the-home moms alike! Go to www.startavon.com and use reference code souzak (all lowercase letters) to start selling Avon today! You will officially be a member of my team of representatives and I’ll hook you up with a wealth of resources and information to grow your business. Sign up to sell avon today!

What are people saying about Avon?

I’ve been selling Avon (for the 2nd time) for 90 days now and I have to admit that it is a lot more fun than I had expected it to be! I get really excited when my customers tell me how much they love their new Avon purchase. I grew up wearing Avon. My mom was an Avon Representative that sold at the Presidents Club level (who knew?!) and then I began selling for the first time in 2003 when my oldest daughter was born. Why am I telling you this? For context. I’ve always known about Avon but I am slowly realizing that perhaps my generation and younger may not have heard of it. I think the only thing they know about Avon is that Edward Scissorhands had an Avon Lady.

es avon lady

It is not 1950 and I am not knocking door-to-door to sell you Avon (although if you are that kind of Avon Rep more power to you!).  I’m not going to cake your face in strange colors and shades at a home party. I am just sharing what I use and hoping that other people will give it a shot because I really and truly believe it’s better than a lot of the brands y’all are used to paying a LOT of money for. And the thing is….once someone does try Avon they are truly hooked!  I have dozens of customers and they all have different shopping preferences. And they all love what they buy.

I wanted to share some of what “real” people are saying about Avon. Customer testimonials are great but you always wonder where they came from. The below comments were received in Facebook wall posts, emails, text messages and conversations. These are MY customers and this is what they are saying!

“So if anyone has been thinking about ordering Avon nail polish, I 100% recommend it! I painted my nails last Monday and haven’t had a single chip.”

nail enamel

“I can’t believe how good these prices are! This {Be Blushed Cheek Color} is one of the most fun products I’ve bought in a long time!”

“I just tried my Smooth Minerals foundation and am in LOVE. I’m never buying {designer brand} again!”

smooth minerals

“Skin so Soft hand cream is the BEST! Love that stuff! Do you have another brochure? I need more….”


“I just wanted to say thank you for the Avon! I absolutely love the face mask!!! I was able to get in my workout and facial at the same time. Can’t do that at the spa! And I was surprised to see that Avon carries such a variety of things. I will definitely be ordering more stuff!”


“I can attest to loving it. I’m seriously never buying eyeliner anywhere else. It’s also important to point out that I’m a huge snob when it comes to this stuff…”


Convinced yet? Yup….I knew it.

What in the world are BB and CC Creams anyway??



I love makeup but I am more of an old soul with my tried-and-true. I don’t just naturally whip out my brushes and come up with some amazing contour or highlight without a bit of help! I don’t always know how to use the newest products, like illuminators or creams, and I know I’m not alone! Together we are going to learn about new products, what they are, how to use them, why to use them and we will do it using cost conscious, high quality products from Avon (obviously!).

Today’s topic is BB & CC Creams. What the heck are they and what do they do? BB cream is an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage. The difference between BB and CC creams is subtle–CC generally stands for “color correcting” and the products are meant to address issues like redness or sallowness (usually with light-diffusing particles), whereas BB creams are like lighter foundation with a few skin care benefits thrown in.


I love using Avon’s Ideal Flawless BB Cream. Depending on how much you apply, you can have a light to medium amount of coverage. It really is an all-in-one product but I tend to use it over my normal face moisturizer anyway.  Add a swipe of mark. shimmer cubes and finish of this natural, everyday look with a bit of shimmer in the right lighting! Shop in my online store here to pick up a bottle of Ideal Flawless BB or CC Cream for only $10 (sale price). #avonrep #bbcream #cccream #makeup #beautyblogger #idealflawless


Make your skin glow with Avon!

Marie Claire wrote an article in June 2016 on how to get the “Glowiest Skin of Your Life”! and it featured a BUNCH of Avon skincare and Avon makeup products that you simply MUST have in your makeup bag!  Use these top 7 products for shimmery, beachified skin without stepping out in the rays for even a second!

1. The Peel Pads (pictured above)  – Avon Anew Clinical Extra Strength Retexturizing Peel Pads. This one-step peel pad gives you all the strength of an in-office dermatology visit without the price tag or leaving your bathroom! No doubt, this is a strong peel pad. But it works! And for only $25 it will not break the bank but will break up those dead, dry skin cells!

2. The Brightening Serum (pictured above) – Avon Anew Vitamin C Brightening Serum ($30). This stuff is like coffee for my face! It wakes me up, brightens my skin, evens out skin tone and helps protect against harmful UV rays. Winning!

3. The AHA Cream (pictured above) – So, basically, exfoliating with alpha hydroxy acids is a must to keep your skin luminous and youthful. But, if you are anything like me, you have zero time in your schedule for yet ANOTHER step in the skincare routine. Please meet my BFF, Avon Anew Refining Cream ($30). This is spiked with Alpha Hydroxy Acids AND it’s gentle enough to use daily. You really cannot beat this amah-zing product!

4. The Self Tanner – Go beyond glow with a gradual-glow sunless tanning lotion that has 7 unique beauty benefits! Avon Skin So Soft Satin Glow 7-in-1 Sensational Glow Body Lotion (on sale for only $4.99! Regularly $11!) is available in Medium or Light skin tones and is enhanced with the fresh scent of orange, green tea and vanilla.

5. The Bronzer (pictured above) – Avon Glow Bronzing Pearls ($9) are beautious little orbs of color for your face! They warm up skin tone in a more natural way than your typical matte formula with varying shades and a little bit o’ shimmer. Just dip in a fluffy Avon Kubuki brush and swirl along your cheekbones, sister!

6. The Multitasking Stick – Add Avon Be Blushed Cheek Color in Golden Rose ($5) for a streak free, dewy finish!

7. The Highlighting Powder – Use mark. Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All Over Face Palette ($16) for a glimmering finish!  Boom.  You are now rocking the glowiest skin of your life!
