Young Living

As with most MLM companies, if you are passionate about the product and work hard, you could very well be successful. However, there is no promise of extensive compensation without extensive work. If you prefer to to buy one thing instead, I would recommend doing just that. But be warned that essential oils are NOT a replacement for medicine and proper health procedures.

NuSkin Logo
Nu Skin

Many people who enlist with Nu Skin stand to be disappointed if they expect to earn money; many do see Nu Skin as a scam. For customers who love Nu Skin products, however, signing up as a distributor may be a wise move. It is important for potential distributors to educate themselves on the odds against them making good money. As for the products, they seem to be just as effective as other companies’ products. Sometimes they work, and sometimes their claims are exaggerated.

Melaleuca Logo

Melaleuca is not necessarily a scam, however it does work off the MLM structure. They reel you in with the awesome products, which seem to stand by their reputation, but once you no longer want to pay the membership it seems cancelling isn’t really an option.

Anything that automatically renews and charges your card each month is something to be wary about. I suggest being aware of cancellation policies and exactly what you are getting with each charge before committing to something of this nature.

Avon Logo

Avon’s history and the quality of their product both point to their brand as trustworthy, but like all direct sales brands, individual sales representatives make the difference. Avon scam warnings that highlight the ways individual representatives and customers game the system should be taken seriously, though. While the company is reliable overall, its reliance on a network of independent contractors does pose some potential problems.

doTerra Logo

As an alternative medicine company, doTerra produces good-quality essential oils and essential oil blends. The opacity of products, dubious claims, pyramid-style sales tactics, and the potential promotion of essential oils over conventional medical treatment has made many people suspicious of this company and their privately labeled goods.

Mary Kay Logo
Mary Kay

Mary Kay can be a positive experience for many women. They do need to understand, though, that the upfront commitment for success is substantial, at least a few hundred dollars. Mary Kay is like owning a business; the more you are able to invest in it, the more you may reap from it. Having proper expectations is the key to avoiding disappointment. Calling Mary Kay a scam is incorrect, but it is unlikely that a consultant will get rich quickly.


Stay away from the ASEA scam! ASEA is nothing more than overpriced salt water, which you can make at home for pennies. People who claim ASEA has worked for them may be experiencing the placebo effect, wishful thinking or coincidental health recovery. They may just be plain-out lying. The “science” behind ASEA is nonexistent to the point that the company has to resort to jargon and made-up words. Ridiculous.
