—-FAQ’s—-

Why shouldn’t I wash my face with bar soap?

— Bar soaps can have a drying effect and can strip away the natural oils that your skin needs. Unlike most bar soaps, our gentle cleansers are formulated to deal with specific skin types and needs.

How do I determine my skin type?

–Large pores all over the face, if you notice your skin getting shiny throughout the day or if a oil visibly appears on a tissue when blotting that equals a Oily/ Combination skin type.

–Large pores primarily in the T zone (forehead, nose and chin), and visible oil only appears in those areas throughout the day, that equals a Normal/Combination skin type.

–If skin is almost always tight feeling and looks rough. that equals Dry skin type.

Why should I use the Cleansing Brush?

–The cleansing brush enhances the cleanser and it’s gentle and suitable for sensitive skin. Plus, it cleans better than hands alone.

What is Micellar Water?

–Everyone is talking about this no-water wonder…. Micellar water contains micelle molecules that act like magnets, attracting and dissolving dirt, oil, makeup and other impurities. Leaving skin feeling nourished and hydrated and since no water is needed, it is great for on-the-go use.

Should I be scrubbing daily?

–Our scrub is formulated with Palm Seed Powder and Jojoba Wax beads to provide gentle exfoliation that is suitable for everyday use ( AM & PM). It improves skin texture and accelerates skin renewal.

Top 10 of my Fantastic Favorites

223ddbc082c638adcea3bcd3db69f466

Becoming an Avon representative was and still is so much more than selling Avon. I wanted to sell something I was passionate about, I tried other companies in the past thinking I believed in their products and purpose as a company. Come to find out I may have believed their purpose, but wasn’t a fan of the products. In my eyes it is nearly impossible to sell something you wouldn’t use in your own home or daily life. So when I was asked to join Avon, I realized I was putting my time and effort into the wrong company.

I have been a AVON fan since I can remember, my Mom always ordered Avon and as I got to be the age in which I could order myself, I started to as well. So instead of ordering from someone else, why not order from myself and get my products at a discounted price. That right there made the $15 start fee worth it.

As a teenager, my favorite product became the fragrance Sweet Honesty, which I still use 20+ years later.  As I grew into a late teenager, young adult I was a HUGE fan of Mickey Mouse, and Avon ALWAYS had some of the best Mickey Mouse items around. My family knew I would always be happy with any Avon Mickey Mouse gift for any occasion. Which reminds me of a time years ago, growing up in a small rural town where everyone’s Avon Lady was the same person. The Avon Lady knew very well of my Mickey Mouse collection, as me and family ordered many items over the years. One year both my Mom and my Sister both ordered a Mickey Mouse Tote Bag and Umbrella set for me as  a Christmas gift, neither of them discussed it with one another and the Avon lady never mentioned it to either of them as well. So needless to say that year I got 2 Tote Bag & Umbrella Sets. The look on their faces that Christmas was priceless. Another product line that I really enjoyed and have a set of to this day that are very precious to me, was the Thomas Kinkade Lighthouses collectibles.

Today, my Avon orders look a little different than they did when I was younger, but the fact remains the same. Avon has, is and always will be part of my life. As an Avon Representative that just brings that statement to a whole new level. I now use the products more on a daily basis, and have been educated about the history of Avon and what Avon truly stands for. So I can proudly say that I belong to a company who not only provides me and my family products that we like but also a company that has the same morals and beliefs as I do. When you are passionate about what you are doing, it no longer seems like work.

Now as promised, my Top 10 Fantastic Favorites—

1. Anyone who knows me knows I love my “Flip Flops”, which in hence means my toes need to be polished.

6772ef9167a97d6c6eb7920f9a2dba5d (2)

2. Next, I would have to say  would be the Shower Gels, both Natural Senses and SSS. I prefer to mix them up and never used the same scent in a row. I tend to stock up these when they are on sale, as you can usually buy them for a great price.

3cbff1701840121993e414d37e18d0cd

3. Which brings me right in a Classic Favorite, as I would call it. Since I remember it in our house as a child, Skin So Soft. Which Avon has really expanded their line of SSS, allowing a great variety of products using the same classic product.

90c0b7747dd9417933e3af873142981c

4. As mentioned earlier Sweet Honesty will always hold a special place in my heart, and again another Classic Favorite as far as I am concerned.

431b8438b145f633a01b81b18967092d

5. Bubbles, Bubbles and more Bubbles….Who doesn’t like a Bubble Bath? Avon is known for their Bubble Bath product and probably always will.

9c2bc5d436058dac8f14978d4689f8f9

6. With age, I have also become fond of a lighter refreshing type fragrance vs. the heavier scents. Which leads me into a my love for the Body Sprays offered through Avon and the great variety of scents.

24eecb19ac4dceb07cdf6d86911c0227

    7. Which is a perfect segway into one of next favorite products, the Body Lotions. So many options, I can use a different one everyday of the week.

07ab961e367c41cc4cc90470eaa12f58

    8. Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE Carmex, my son says that is my signature scent and that he could always find me if I left open drinks along the way. But I also enjoy Lip Gloss, which I apply first and than top with Carmex. Some people like Lipstick, but my preference is Lip Gloss.

60f51bf668aef630a9d0f0fb02a882a4

    9. My family has become to love the haircare products, both the shampoo and conditioners. My teenage son cares more about his hair and how it feels and looks than anyone else in the house. So I figure if it is kid test and approved, it must be good.

16edd7061f574d57f52f8d2dd0c3e7cb (2)

10. Last but definitely not least, is still my personal weakness but everyone deserves to get themselves something once in a while. Right?!?!?! Avon has an exceptional line of .925 Sterling Silver Jewelry.  Ranging from Necklaces, Earrings and of course my favorite Rings.

So I can continue to go on and on about my preferred products from Avon, but I will save those items for a different blog as I promised to give my Top 10 and will stop there for now.

As I have learned on my journey as an Avon Representative and have mentioned time and time again. Avon truly is so much more than their products. It is a company that has been around for 130 years, which not many companies can say that, but they also continue to grow bigger and stronger because they truly care and thrive to show both women and men alike that they stand up for what they believe is right. They work strongly with a couple very important causes and donate time and money in helping others that are victims, survivors and those around them that are affected by Domestic Violence and Breast Cancer.

12705789_1028077140582605_7940065853557101575_n

Avon also believes in Beauty with a Purpose. Encouraging both women and men the confidence to feel proud of who and what they are. Beauty comes in various forms, and what may be beautiful to one person may not be to another. There is no right or wrong when it comes to beauty, everyone has their own style making us INDIVIDUALS.

So this blog provides you a summary of my opinion of why it only seems natural to me to a Representative of a company such as Avon. Everyone’s story and journey is different but in the end we all stand for the same things.

History of AVON…. 130 years later.

12523050_1139409792738884_1856210920953166010_n

 

Avon can be traced back as far a 1886, when a struggling door-to-door book salesman David McConnell decided he was going to sell perfume. Originally known as The California Perfume Company. David never intended on starting a beauty company, but only to be able to add additional perks to his female customers. David started brewing his own fragrances in a small office space in a New York City, calling his product line “The Little Dot Perfume Set” which consisted of 5 scents; violet, lily of the valley, white rose, hyacinth, and heliotrope.

David McConnell, also appointed Avon’s First General Agent, Mrs. Albee. This was done at a time even before women had the right to vote. Mrs. Albee is a standing legend for Avon and the company they have become today. She was able to form a solid base for the company, within 6 months she had over 100 salespeople and their customer base. Within 12 years, she was able to recruit and train over 5,000 representatives.

In addition to newly added fragrances, there was other products that were be added to the product line as well. Some of the more popular products were things such as Spot Remover, Witch Hazel Cream, Food Flavorings to even things like Machine Oil and Mending Cement.

In 1896, ten years into the business, David McConnell hired a well known perfumer with 25 years experience, the following year a new lab was built to help expand the line of perfumes. Also a notable thing had that same year, the first illustrated catalog was produced.

By the 20th year in business, there was over 100 items on the product line. By 1914, the expansion of the company went international, opening an office in Montreal Canada. Avon’s first products to appear in The California Perfume Company were the Toothbrush, Cleanser and Vanity Set– which appeared in 1920.

The name Avon came from the area surrounding the Suffren, New York perfume lab that was built in 1879, that reminded David McConnell of William Shakespeare’s home, Stratford-On-Avon in England. Sticking to the original idea of door-to-door sales and catalogs filled with low-cost home and beauty products, the company surpassed 2 million dollars in sales by its 40 year in business 1926. By the late 1920’s, the company was doing business in 48 of the US states and Canada. By this time there was thousands of representatives, all under the supervision of Mrs. Albee, that were forming one of the first opportunities for women to embrace in earning an independent income without interfering with their role as the homemakers.

By 1932, the company has launched it’s 3 week campaign strategy. When David McConnell passed away 5 years later, David McConnell Jr. took over for the next 7 years. In 1939, The California Perfume Company was re-branded Avon due to the product lines success and popularity.

During the 1950’s the new Avon made several changes, most notable of them being the expansion into the overseas regions and its rapid increase in sales. Avon advertisement introduced it’s famous slogan “Ding Dong, Avon Calling” commercial that was first aired in 1954. The same year Avon opened  offices in Puerto Rico and Venezuela, marking the beginning of the venture into the Latin American market. In 1957, it entered the European region by launching the Avon Institute of Cosmetics in the United Kingdom.

During the late 1960’s, the 3 week campaign went to the current 2 week campaign to help improve sales with the exception of a few overseas markets. The 1970’s proved to bring some of the companies most challenging times in history. Even though, in 1971 it started it’s profitable line of costume jewelry making Avon the top manufacturer of jewelry within just 5 years, and in 1972 sales topped 1 billion dollars. In 1973, Avon’s growth stalled. The company was hit hard with recession and the increased number of women entering into the workforce. In 1975 over 25,000 Avon ladies quit and Avon’s products were being undone by retail companies offering better products to women with a new attitude.

A combination of all of these factors eventually played into a restructuring of Avon. Avon’s overhaul led to a more contemplating appeal with more advertisement and revamped sales. Over next decade in the 1980’s there were various acquisitions including jewelry and medical/healthcare companies resulting in a loss for Avon. Diversification with largely popular perfume companies proved to be more stable for Avon. After Liz Claiborne dissolved it’s agreement with Avon, leaving Avon strapped for money. Avon sold another company  in the early 1990’s. Keeping it relationship with Giorgio’s which was nationally a top-seller well into the 1990’s. Under the parentage of Avon introduced several new products to the Giorgio’s line.

Early to mid 1990’s Avon was able to gain financial stability. An investment firm, which interestingly enough included the CFO of Mary Kay Cosmetics. However, the largest deterrent of this takeover bid was the strong-minded sales representatives that stated they would not be willing to work for them.

Avon focused on renewing its sales within the United States, by turning their focus of selling through means of direct mail by using full colored catalogs to promote their products. This measure increased sales drastically for the company. As Avon began to stand on a more solid ground financially, it allowed for them to focus again on expanding worldwide. Avon also starting selling online via the internet, opening a whole new venue for the company.

After selling off the Giorgio line in 1994, Avon started promoting products carrying it’s own name instead. Avon continued to strengthen it’s growth internationally. Expansion continued as Avon introduced the selling of sportswear and women’s apparel in it’s direct mail catalogs.

Andrea Jung, the 1st woman CEO of Avon was named the CEO in 1999, after joining Avon in 1994. Under her supervision, Avon began it’s brand turnaround as well as focusing on it’s US revenues, which accounted for nearly 30% of the company sales in 2000. Changes to it’s advertising, marketing, manufacturing, packaging, and selling strategies were put in to place as well. Adopting the tagline “A Company for Women”. Avon took on a mission to promote the Avon Lady and her products that could enter the new millennium with a new & fresh style and appeal.

Over the last almost 2 decades, there has been a continued investment in advertising and marketing. Avon stays up-to-date on the latest and newest skincare products, make-up, perfumes not to mention the added product lines that include apparel, shoes, kid’s care, toys, kitchen gadgets and much more. One of their latest line being the Home Living, which offers household items to add comfort to  your home and the home of your loved ones.

Being a Avon Representative is so much more than just selling make-up and other items, It is about being apart of a company who knows what it is like to struggle and survive. It’s about feeling the empowerment to make a difference for others. Taking pride in not just supporting Breast Cancer, but actually fighting to help find the resources that women in that frightening situation need. It’s not about being in a competition with your fellow Avon representatives but helping them grow, the same as when others helped you grow. We are a family, a company, a team of women and a few good men that are in this together sharing an experience you can only imagine if you have the support that you get when you become an Avon Representative.

Looking back over the 130 year journey Avon has had, gives me a refreshed outlook on what I am capable of doing with such a honorable company. If you are not inspired by my blog, please read the history of the company for yourself, as my words can never do the true justice deserved by such an AMAZING company.

If you are interested in becoming part of the next phase of Avon’s history, please contact me. I would be happy to get you on the right track and get you the same amazing support I have been already been given and able to grow from and continue to do so.

Skin So Soft… One of Avon’s #1 selling products.

wp-1452621425815.jpeg

Being one of the #1 sellers of AVON I am pleased to announce the up to 50% savings opportunity currently available. Of course this savings applies to the various different products made by Skin So Soft (SSS) from their lotions, to the shower gels and everything in between. All of these savings can be viewed at my website http://www.wkerkela.avonrepresentative.com Don’t forget the many savings codes that can be taken advantage of as well during the month of January. If you missed them you can always contact me or view them in a blog previous posted.

11866277_933888523334801_981750675258525479_n

I remember having Skin So Soft in my home even as a child. Of course, at that time I never knew the many things Skin So Soft could be used for. The main use I remember it being used for in my house as a child was mosquito repellent, but truly there are many more. Above is a list of the various things that can be done with just one simple product. No fancy expensive chemical filled items that you have to buy for individual uses but one simple product that you could have on stock on a consistent basis. Especially if you stock up on it during savings opportunities like they have available now.

Do you or a family member use it for something other than one that is already listed? If so I would LOVE for you to share that information with me and the other followers. Please leave your idea in the comments section of the blog.

Of course our furry family members LOVE Skin SO Soft as well, so when considering your order keep them in mind as well.10502377_892346870822300_8297791657355988384_n
