I used to be an "Avon Lady" years ago as a third job to make some extra money. I haven't bought Avon in at least 10 years, but, I need to be honest. From the stuff I had to sell, and what I bought over the years, I see better quality in even discount store brands. I also never made any money, they were constantly trying to get me to bring my freinds into the business, they had repeated "meetings" that were a pain in the ass, and I didn't like it at all. I was in college and had a part time job and I didn't have time for a second "career" which is what they wanted us to think of it as. I just wanted to make a little more money. I didn't ever make a profit.
This is just my opinion. I don't know the methods of how Avon is sold anymore. When I sold it, you actually went door to door, which I doubt people do anymore.
But, the makeup, the nail polish and the jewelry was just not the kind of things that worked for my skin I guess. I never had any luck with it, it seemed to wear off quickly, the lip stick made my lips feel like sandpaper, and I didn't like the fragrances. Sorry, it isn't my thing. Also, I put Skin So Soft on and the mosquitoes send out a "Bite Alert" and I get bit more than I do when I have nothing on to prevent mosquitoes.
But, like I said, I haven't even looked at Avon in over 10 years, so maybe they've changed.
