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

Why Lisa Loves It: “Illuminate your natural features with a delicate sweep of my soft-as-silk Gleam Supreme Highlighters.

Lisa’s Application Tip:

“There’s nothing worse than stripy highlighter so I love that when I apply this it blends onto the skin for a beautifully illuminated finish.

Once you’ve finished applying, use an all over blending brush to soften and don’t forget that final mirror check for unblended stripes.”

Time for some me time

Don’t get me wrong I’ve absolutely loved having my little one at home and I will treasure the moments we’ve had forever. It’s like having a second maternity leave but with a child you can interact and do things with but having to juggle working at the same time. As much as he would love to homeschool forever, we need that normality of routine and being an only child, he needs his friends.

So on Monday, once I have done the school run, I will be doing very little. I have an uninterrupted bath planned, with my new bath salts and I’ll be watching what I want on the tv! I might even start to read a book.

Anyone else have anything nice planned for when the little ones are back at school?

Whatever you decide to do enjoy!

And if you fancy treating yourself to a pamper, we have everything you need at http://www.newmakeup.co.uk

Happy Galentine’s Day

Happy Galentine’s Day – the day before Valentine’s Day to celebrate friendship. If you live alone you might be lucky enough to have a friend as your support bubble so you can see them in person, but for the rest of us it’s virtual friendships only at the moment.

Whilst it’s tough not seeing anyone other than our household – and occasionally the Post Lady if she has a parcel! We need to keep those friendships going as you never know how someone else might be feeling and may really need that virtual hug.

So give that friend a call, arrange a virtual meet up for a group chat or drop them a socially distanced present.

Not sure how to celebrate Galentine’s Day? Why not join Lisa Armstrong and her celebrity make-up artist friend Bryony Blake for an Instagram Live tonight at 7pm!

Lisa has added two NEW shades of lipstick (and liners) to her super successful collection and she’s named them after two of her besties; celebrity make-up artist Bryony Blake and her dear friend Becky!

Lisa will be going live on her Instagram with Bryony to celebrate female friendships and talk about her new shades. So be sure to join her at 7pm tonight on Instagram @lisaarmstrongmakeup and share the news with your gal pals too!

Still haven’t treated yourself (or your besties) to these gorgeous new shades? Then be sure to order today and treat yourself this Galentine’s Day!

Treat yourself at: http://www.newmakeup.co.uk

Super Serum

Are you that person who uses baby wipes to take off your make up? That was most definitely me. But do you know what? Baby wipes are for babies bums! They aren’t for taking our make up off, however convenient it might be to grab one – you only have one skin – look after it.

Avon’s Anew Vitamin C Radiance Maximising Serum will wake up your skins radiance – use a small amount before you use your day or night cream – make this your bathroom essential not the baby wipes.

The Anew Serum is for any age range and the earlier you start to look after your skin, the better. Use it with any skin type, even if you have eczema (as long as it’s not weeping). Why not add a drop to your favourite body lotion? It’s for men too! Use it after shaving – it smells great.

With the Vitamin C of 30 oranges in one bottle, what’s stopping you from giving it a try?

Order yours online now (it might be as good as the high end brands, but the price tag certainly isn’t high end) http://www.shopwithmyrep.co.uk/avon/mymakeup

Menopause? We’ve got it!

Menopause shouldn’t be such a taboo subject should it? After all it’s going to affect so many of us at one point in our life. And if you don’t know the signs read on!

For me the main symptom you hear about is the hot flushes, not being able to sleep at night because you are just so warm. But what about irritation and dryness to the skin, they are signs too. And have you heard of Perimenopause? Also known as early menopause, the point in your like when your periods can become a bit irregular (or even stop) and this can affect you both emotionally and physically. These symptoms are real and we need to be aware so we can prepare for the time when the inevitable happens.

If you are already suffering the symptoms of menopause (or you want to be prepared) you are in luck, Avon have been working on their new range, Adapt, a skincare collection designed specifically for this period in your life. It will give you balance and calm when you need it most.

Firstly, for those unbearable hot flushes, when you feel like your in the dessert, we have the icy cool spritz of the cooling elixir facial mist. Giving you that instant cool you so long for, it is infused with soothing botanical adaptations that help the body to resist stressors, leaving your skin to feel calm and balanced.

Then we have the dry skin, with oestrogen levels dropping your hormones aren’t keeping your skin it’s usual healthy and hydrated self, causing you to have dry, irritated skin. If you need some instant hydration on the go we have the hydra rescue on the go serum, to give your skin that quenched, nourished and soothed feeling.

And finally, those wrinkles, with collagen levels declining that useful bounce in your skin reduces as your oestrogen levels begin to drop. The lavender and jasmine scented dream cream can help you sleep better. This is the night cream that can help double your collagen production as well as being infused with hyaluronic acid and blemish fighting niacinamide.

So, if you’ve been suffering the symptoms of the menopause or perimenopause I challenge you to give the new Avon Adapt range. A launch offer of just £20 for all three products, which also qualifies you for free delivery, it’s got to be worth a try!

Kick those feelings

I don’t know about you but after Christmas, the time when PJ’s and lazy days become the norm seems to have dragged on a lot longer than it normally does.

With the little ones only back at school for a day before we faced another lockdown, I managed to get back into that rut of staying up late, waking up late and generally not being very productive.

So having a Teams call booked in for 9.30 Monday morning was a bit of a shock to the system. But, it turns out to have been the kick I needed to get back into things. I got myself up, made myself a cuppa, got dressed and put on my make up for the first time in probably a month (maybe two!) and it actually did me the world of good, I felt much more confident and ready to drive my business again.

So, if your that person I was a week ago, get yourself an early night, wake up feeling refreshed with a cuppa and a healthy breakfast. Then pop on your favourite outfit and your best make up then give a friend a video call, you might make their day by cheering them up with a happy call as well.

And if you need to treat yourself to some new make up I have everything you could want (I recommend the Lisa Armstrong range!) at http://www.newmakeup.co.uk plus you get free delivery when you spend £20 or more!

National Bubble Bath Day

Who knew there was a national day for bubble bath! Well apparently today is the day – and this year it couldn’t have come at a better time.

We usually start the year with goals, plans, things we want to achieve but 2021 we start with a lockdown and uncertainty about what the future may hold.

So a soak in a nice hot (very hot) Bubble Bath with a cold glass of wine sounds the perfect way to end a Friday. It’s not like we are allowed to go out anywhere right!

And Bubble Bath scents have evolved over the year’s – vanilla cupcake, bubblegum, traditional lemonade- if you don’t like the traditional scents these could be for you. For me, my favourite is aloha monoi, it reminds me of holidays, such a distant memory now but hopefully something I can do this year.

To celebrate National Bubble Bath Day, Avon have a buy one get one free offer on their 500ml bubble baths, so stock up, it looks like we’re at home for a few weeks yet so wind down and have a soak in the bath – http://www.avon.uk.com/store/mymakeup

A great offer- valid until Monday 11th January 2021 at http://www.avon.uk.com/store/mymakeup
