Avon Customer Reminder for Campaign 18, 2020


My next Avon order is due to be submitted after 8:00 p.m. tomorrow (Monday) night. I have been forgetting to offer a special with each reminder so I'm catching up with three this time. You may any one of these at my cost of 40% off when you place an order in this campaign. If you have already given me your order, just let me know if you want to add one of these items to it. 
  • Page 88, Mattitude Soft Matte Liquid Lip - 40% off price is $5.39.
  • Page 97, Love at 1st Lash Mascara - 40% off price is $5.99.
  • Page 213, Footworks Overnight Renewing Cream - 40% off price is $3.35.

 Here are a few new products and best buys for Campaign 18:
  • Pg. 5, NEW Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation ($30) for those who prefer a powder foundation to a liquid. This product can also be used as a setting powder over your liquid foundation and can be worn wet by dampening your powder puff. If you like a matte finish, choose one of these 16 shades for all day wear. The natural ingredients include vegan collagen, lavender oil, artichoke, and chamomile extracts.
  • Pg. 14, The A Box ($10 with a $40 brochure purchase) is all about a Fresh Face. There's a try-it size of Green Goddess Facial Oil, a try-it size of Love at 1st Lash Mascara, and a full-size of Anew Neutralize Anti-Pollution Serum. 
  • Pg. 18/19, NEW Limited Edition belif Aqua Bomb with Hyaluronic Acid Powder Set and belif Moisturizing Bomb with Hyaluronic Acid Powder Set - $45 each set. The jumbo-size moisturizer + hyaluronic acid powder = an explosive bomb of super hydration that you mix and wear overnight for super hydration!
  • Pg. 39, Ink Tint ($12) may be just the long-lasting lip stain you need right now. 
  • Pg. 41, Mono Pop Eyeshadow Palette ($18) in Mood Coral or Mood Brown will carry you into fall with 9 shades of eyeshadow to enhance your eye look and make your eyes pop!
  • Pg. 48, Is your face mask irritating your face? My recommendation would be to use Dr. Belmeur Cica Recovery Cream ($34) with strengthening ceramide to help restore the moisture barrier. Dermatologically tested and suitable for sensitive skin.
  • Pg. 51, NEW Jeju Aloe 99% Fresh Soothing Gel ($6.99) is a product you'll want to have on hand if you aren't growing your own aloe plant. This "nature's miracle moisturizer" is infused with 9 other soothing herb extracts: chamomile, spearmint, lemon balm, rosemary, lavender, bergamot, basil, sage, and oregano. Come to think of it, with all those good herbs, this is better than growing your own!
  • Pg. 99, If you prefer a Powder Brush to a powder puff, you might want to get one of these while they are on sale at $10.49 to use with your new Cashmere Complexion Powder Foundation.
  • Pg. 109, Explore a world of floral delights with LYRD Sparkling Neroli (pronounced "layered") Eau de Parfum at $29. 
  • Pg. 127, Black Suede Eau de Toilette and Wild Country Cologne ($12.99 each) are our classic fragrances for the men. 
  • Pg. 175, NEW Fresh Fiji Gel Bead Diffuser ($7.99) in Calming Lavender and Fresh Cotton has joined the Home Care line. The perfect size for small spaces, just remove the seal and the beads provide a slow release of fragrance infused with green tea extracts to remove and neutralize odors, not just mask them. 
The fantastic new skin care products you see in the picture below will not be found in the brochure until Campaign 20, but they are available now through me or online. Click here to learn about them.

Peony-Powered Skin Care! But what if my skin is sensitive?

Cloud Climbers Newsletter for C17, 2020 - Skin Care Launch!


So, what do you think of Isa Knox Anew LX Ultimate? Personally, I'm impressed! I'm also delighted that the products were made available to our online customers the day after they were launched. (Be sure to look at your online store and click on the scrolling banner.) In fact, if our customers signed up on the Wait List to learn about them at the launch, they knew about them at the same time we did. They can also tune in today at 4:00 ET (3:00 CST is the time for most of us) and join the party where we will be learning more about the products. That will be happening on the Avon USA Representatives Facebook page. This is YOUR opportunity to build your business to new heights because skin care is what you really need to be promoting if you want your business to grow. When you get loyal customers loving their Avon skin care products you will have repeat buyers.* Be the first Cloud Climber to let me know you have sold a product from the Isa Knox line and I'll have a special gift for you!

We have added no new Cloud Climbers to the team this campaign, but $0 sign-ups continue until the end of the year, so I expect we'll be getting a few more as the holiday season approaches. We have had two CCs reinstate their accounts, and I am always happy to see that occur.

I hope each of you has a fantastic Campaign 18! As always, let me know if there is anything I can do to help your business. Speaking of which, I still have 50 C18 brochures that I'm giving away if you can come to 108 Richard Brown Road, Harvest, AL to pick them up. Just tell me how many of the 50 you want and I'll put them on my porch with your name on them.

*During the launch Jeanine mentioned that this skin care line had been thoroughly tested except for sensitive skin. She said that most anti-aging products are not promoted as being for sensitive skin. However, if you look at your online store scrolling banner you will also see that we have an entire new product line specifically for sensitive skin - Physiogel. Avon has got every skin type covered, so be sure to let your customers who have told you they have sensitive skin know about these products.

Cloud Climbers Newsletter for Campaign 16, 2020


Have all of you been reading your emails from Avon? I know there are several of them coming out right now and you may be falling behind due to your many obligations. I know that feeling all too well. However, if you can just skim over the latest ones it would be good for your business. Here are some of the main points:
  1. There is a major skin care launch coming on August 4. It appears to be a daytime cream or cream duo that will be in the Anew line and possibly there will be more than one product. If you sign into your account you will see a banner about it. I know that when I met with a few top selling Avon Reps yesterday at least one of them seemed to be unaware of this launch. 
  2. Starting September 2, the time to process Returns is being reduced again and you should already be aware that there will no longer be one free shipping return shipment each month. Shipping costs will still be low, but not free. Therefore, it might be a good idea to hold your returns and only ship them to Avon once a month. Customers will have 45 days to return products to you for credit or exchange and you will have 60 days to return them to Avon, so just be sure you kept track of the amount of time from when you ordered the items. I don't know the details on when Avon begins the countdown for the 60 days, so I recommend counting from when the items were invoiced by Avon. 
  3. Free signups will continue until the end of the year, so keep pushing the opportunity. New Reps who qualify with a $60+ first order will get $10 credit toward their second order, free samples, and an A Box. 
  4. No more Fast Talk for orders! Most of you are turning in your orders online so this shouldn't affect too many, but one or two old school Cloud Climbers may be calling in orders. The Care Center Specialists will be available still but there will be a small fee for getting help from them in placing your order. If you have never placed on online order, be sure to watch the "Shortcut to Success" program on Avon U to learn how to do it. 
  5. What's New has already moved to online only (and I know that can be frustrating since it is not as easily read) and now invoices will only be available online. They can be downloaded and printed under Manage Orders/Invoicing. There are step-by-step instructions in the Invoicing Tool module on Avon U.

RecognitionCongratulations to Jean Drouillard for achieving the first step on the Pathway to Premier by having a first order of over $60 and receiving a $10 credit toward her second order, a free full-size Avon product, and free samples! I'm excited to see that Margo Prytz and Leslie Clendenon have both made the Premier Level for 2020 and are well on the way toward President's Club once again. Congratulations to Linda Wardell for tracking toward the Premier Level with a $646 increase over her CTD sales last year, to Margo Prytz for having a $1,804 sales increase over her CTD sales of last year, and to Gladys Faulk for having a $199 sales increase over her CTD sales of last year. If your sales are up over last year and I haven't mentioned you here, please let me know. Sometimes the reports are challenging to pull from VIBE. 

I hope you are having a great Campaign 17. Let me know if I can help you in any way.
