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.


The fact is there are TONs of user reviews that say ASEA has helped them with their health. Skeptical? Try it out for yourself and see if ASEA can help.

BBB Logo
Better Business Bureau

Consumers should take the revelations about the BBB’s conduct and treatment of members into account before trusting their ratings, even if the organization has historically worked to prevent fraud. For businesses considering accreditation, it is worth weighing the historic reputation against the possible blowback that might come from associating with an organization accused of creating false consumer confidence through the manipulation of complaints and reviews.

Ripoff Report Logo
Ripoff Report

In short, I would avoid joining Ripoff Report completely. Its paid services only serve to undo the damage that they are responsible for in the first place. The majority of reviews on this site are biased and untruthful. If you wish to read accurate and honest reviews, please visit a more reliable consumer advocacy site or simply talk to individuals who have done business with the company already.
