Ding Dong

I’ve been asked many times what being an Avon Rep involves so I thought I’d share my experience with you.

Avon Reps are traditionally known for calling at peoples doors as the old advert goes “ding dong.”  Showing the latest Avon brochure to friends and family is the bread and butter for Avon Reps.

Avon, unlike some other Direct Selling Companies allocate “territory” so each rep has their own patch of houses to show their brochures to and collect orders.

There are 18 brochures for Reps to sell from during the year, for those not great at maths that’s a new book every three weeks with a couple of two week campaigns over Christmas each year.

Once the Avon Rep has collected their orders in they are placed online, unlike a few years ago when everything was paperimage based and posted through another reps door for the Area Manager to collect.  With online ordering the Rep can input several orders fairly quickly.

The products are then delivered to the Rep in a big box (or boxes!) and they work out which customer has ordered what.  I always have a brochure handy incase I’m unsure of the customers handwriting.

Once the Rep has “bagged up” all of their orders they can deliver to their customers and collect payment from them.  Avon allow the Rep two weeks to collect in the payments, meaning no upfront cost to the Avon Rep.  The difference between the amount the Rep needs to pay Avon and the amount they have collected from their customers is the Reps commission – Avon even calculate it for us on our invoice.

If a customer wants to return anything under Avon’s 28 day no quibble guarantee we just print out a returns form and hand the item back to the delivery driver when he delivers the next order.

Avon have recently launched online selling allowing the Avon Rep to sell UK wide, with the customer making payment directly to Avon and delivery coming straight from Avon’s head office this gives comfort to the customer that they will get their products directly and the flexibility to get that lippy whenever they want it.  The Avon Rep gets the benefit of an extra customer whilst still earning their commission.  Visit my online shop at http://www.avon.uk.com/store/mymakeup

A massive thank you

I had the pleasure of attending Avon’s Gold Presidents Club dinner. The event was at the Hilton Metropol Hotel in Birmingham, to recognise the top sellers in Avon.

Avon have a recognition program to reward their top sellers and as part of that the top 50 sellers, from over 100,000 Avon Reps in the UK win a holiday. The holiday for 2019 sales is to Barcelona and I have the privilege of attending.

As an Avon Rep I’m self employed and rely on just little old me to promote my business, so from the bottom of my heart I want to thank each and every one of you who has bought something from me or shared a post to help get my name out there. Each and every sale adds up and allows me to treat my little boy and gives me the flexibility to spend time with him. The holiday is an added bonus but an amazing added bonus, so thank you!

And a reminder for anyone who has forgotten, you can shop for your favourite Avon Products at http://www.avon.uk.com/store/mymakeup

Delivery is currently free for all orders over £15

Treat the one you love this Valentines Day

Whether you go all out at Valentines Day or just want a little gesture to show you care, treat your loved one this Valentines Day.

I was never one to really bother with Valentines Day but as I’ve got older I’ve realised life is short and the little things we can do to show our love or appreciation can make a difference.

And we have lots to choose from at Avon http://www.avon.uk.com/store/mymakeup

Whether your looking for a nice aftershave or perfume or something for the make up collection you’ll find something for the one you love.

I’m a big fan of the Avon pyjamas so I’d be happy to open a new pair of pj’s this Valentines Day – who doesn’t love a nice new pair of pj’s and fresh bed sheets? I must be getting old!

If it’s fragrance your after, we have some great gift sets for you to choose from. From the new Attraction range or the traditional Far Away or Black Suede, we have it all.

If she’s more of a make up girl, why not go for one of the eyeshadow pallets, they are really popular at the moment and look very giftable.

Or why not pamper her, run a bubble bath and light some candles and give her a night off.

Whatever you choose, we have 10% off until Monday (3rd February 2020), there’s no code needed, we’ll just take 10% off the total for your basket at checkout – and there’s free delivery for all orders over £15, so shop for those treats at http://www.avon.uk.com/store/mymakeup

Make Blue Monday a Bright Monday

So tomorrow is Blue Monday, when most of us are feeling the January Blues! Is it payday yet?

I’ve booked a little holiday in Wales for us but the main summer holiday is still to be decided so if I can’t book a holiday to cheer myself up then I’ll treat myself to some new makeup as well and whilst I’m at it I could really do with some new face creams and Avon’s new Distillery range with 20% off I have my eye on the sleep cream.

A bit of exercise is always good to beat the blues so when I’ve dropped my little man at school tomorrow morning, I’ll have myself a bit of time in the fresh air. Doing a bit of exercise should hopefully help me sleep better as well and you can’t beat a good night’s sleep.

Take some time to puta plan together for this years goals, make time for yourself and smash those targets one by one.

But it all starts with number one, treat yourself to a little pamper, put on that new lipstick and feel good about yourself –


We’ve even got free delivery when you spend £15

New year, new you?

New Year is about Resolutions!

🏃‍♀️ Do you want to get more exercise?

👧 Make new friends?

💴 Earn extra cash?

👩‍💻 Learn a new skill?

💄 Get cheaper make up?

Whatever your goal – Avon can help you

What’s stopping you from clicking the link and giving Avon a go?


Avon has given me a great opportunity, so much more than I could have ever imagined but I’ll be honest I was nervous about filling in the form initially, not knowing what the next step of the process was.

When I started 14 years ago it was all done by home visit but now, as long as you have photo ID, you can get yourself set up online. Your Sales Leader (a representative who also has a team, so they also do what you’ll be doing) can give you a video call over Skype / FaceTime/ WhatsApp and see your ID that way and they’ll explain all about how Avon works and you can ask any questions you might have.

All of your orders can be placed online so you can work your business from anywhere, you can even sell solely online if you want to. There’s a new brochure every three weeks so lots of opportunities to find new customers.

The finding new customers fits in with the exercise opportunity, we don’t have territories so you can canvass a street anywhere in the UK, so if you want to do a few more steps choose a street a little walk away and get talking to the people who live there.

I’ve made some great friends over the years from Avon, I probably wouldn’t know my neighbours if I didn’t have the excuse of taking an Avon book because I’m quite shy normally but just having that little excuse of an Avon book makes it easier. I’ve also met some amazing Avon Reps over the years at some of the different social events and holidays (yes a free holiday courtesy of Avon!).

Obviously earning extra money is a nice bonus, I went from selling Avon a few hours a month to replacing my full time job and I wish I did it years ago, it gives me so much more freedom and flexibility with a little one.

Learning new skills, perhaps you want to learn more about social Media, Avon gives you a great excuse to practice or maybe it’s learning how to create different make up looks, again there are hints and tips for you to follow and give it a go for yourself.

Or do you just want cheaper make up, as a rep you earn a discount so you would automatically receive your own products minus that discount and if you choose to spend your commission on make up you can!

If your looking for a new opportunity then here’s the link to get your Avon business up and running – prp.uk.avon.com/laura

PJ Day

Yes they are back – whether you love them or hate them, this years matching family pyjamas are back!

Will your elf be bringing some family pjs to snuggle up and watch a film or will they be in your Christmas Eve box so you can wear them ready for the big man himself?

If matching pj’s are a tradition in your family, make sure you get them early as they have always been very popular and unfortunately sell out quickly.

Avon’s Bear PJ’s come in a range of sizes, with Papa Bear available from size Small to Extra Large, Mama Bear from size 6 to 24 and Little Bear from age 3 to 10.

Avon PJ’s are always lovely and soft and they are a popular selling product for my customers so why not treat your family to some new Pyjamas this Christmas.

Available to buy now at http://www.avon.uk.com/store/mymakeup

I finally joined the gym!

At the beginning of the year one of my resolutions was to be healthier and I have been using my slow cooker and my steamer so I can make healthier meals for us but I’ve still been lacking the motivation to exercise.

I walk to and from school each day, well twice a day because I walk there and back in the morning and in the afternoon to drop my little man off but unfortunately the school isn’t very far away so I don’t get many steps in.

I joined a gym a couple of years ago, after a bit of persuading but to be honest the main benefit was the free parking in town, which I made more use of than the actual gym. However, said gym went out of business not long after they opened so it didn’t last long anyway.

I received an email from the new gym with an opening offer so I decided to give it a go, I’ve been in Facebook jail so I’ve had a bit more time on my hands! So far I’ve been twice this week, just an hour at a time to ease myself into it but I can feel it working. I’m hoping to go once a week and I plan to try some of the classes they have on offer as well.

Here’s to a happier, healthier me!

Christmas is creeping upon us

Looking through the latest Avon brochure I can see the start of the Christmas products being featured. Each year Avon have some lovely Christmas gifts and this year is no exception, but they do sell out quickly.

I’ve started to feel the cold, especially on the school run so I thought I’d treat myself to the Lipsy set with hat & gloves and safe to say I now have warm ears.

The PJ’s from Avon are also really popular and they are nice and comfy. This year I’ve gone for the Lipsy PJ’s from Avon – can you see a theme here? I’m a little bit of a Lipsy fan and I do like pink so I couldn’t go wrong with these. Avon also have some family Christmas PJ’s coming soon which will be making their way into our Christmas Eve box so for now I’m wearing my Lipsy PJ’s (matching slippers and dressing gown also available).

But if your looking for a make up gift then the new Playbook could go down a treat. It would make a lovely stocking filler, a secret Santa or a great treat for yourself. It has a choice of colours so whatever mood your in there’s something for you.

All of these can be purchased from Avon online at http://www.avon.uk.com/store/mymakeup and the spend to qualify for free delivery has been reduced to just £15 or you can have express delivery for just £3.50.

Visit us online at http://www.avon.uk.com/store/mymakeup and get Christmas sorted!
