Hi,
I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this or not, so sorry if not!

I remember a post a while back that was about cosmetics and what companies made for which brands etc, but I can't find it!!

Does anyone know about Virgin Vie? Does someone make their cosmetics? or do they make for anyone else? My local shop has closed down and I grudge the £4 postage to buy my one step face base online, so am looking for a similar alternative!

Thanks

    If you want Virgin Vie and don't have a local shop or seller, you should enquire about becoming a consultant yourself and having Virgin Vie parties and stuff.

    Have a look at the website www.virginvieathome.com

    My partners friends do it and get discount on stuff that they buy.

  • Hi Sarahgail

    Here is a link to the section on the Virgin Vie website where you can search for a consultant http://public.virginvieathome.com/how_do_you_like_to_shop/Pages/find_a_consultant.aspx.aspx
    If you put in your postcode it will bring up a list of the names, phone numbers and email address of consultants in your area. If you contact one of those consultants they can order the item that you would like and they will pay the postage so you don't have to!

    Alternatively, you could have a VV party with a few of your mates. If your party sales are over £80 then you get 15% of the total to spend on yourself so you could get your face base for free! and you will get a free makeover and special hostess offers.

  • I am not absolutely sure, but I think that Virgin Vie formulate their own products but don't have their own manufacturing. This means that you won't find exactly the same product under another label. I think that they sell a lot of stuff through their network of agents. I think this is good because you really get a chance to look at the stuff before you buy it and see whether it suits you. The drawback is that it is a relatively expensive way of distributing products. Imagine the cost of picking all of Avon's reps orders in their warehouse! It is you, the customer, who pays for it.
