  • Back on here briefly, just to be nosey! :wave:

    Recently read 'Long Way Round' by Ewan McGregor & Charley Boorman & found the following:

    (Charley talking about mosquitos when camping) 'Even Avon Skin-so-Soft which an angler friend had told me was the best mosquito repellant, had failed to keep the little b******d away.'

    Make of that what you will :D

    Good to hear from you! :j
    Haha, must be a tougher variety of mozzies there lol! I have to say I find it's great, I don't tend to get bitten, but OH does, and this really stops them, well on the parts you spray. Last time he didn't spray his stomach in the evening (with obviously wearing a shirt to go out), and the little angels bit him on his tummy. So he gets sprayed pretty much everywhere now lol.:rotfl:

    The back reading is very worthwhile! Plus there's only so many times we can repeat the same advice when it is already on the first few pages ;) Glad you will find it useful.
    Still looking for the plot...... Anyone seen it???

    Haha no, don't mean for people to read the whole of the previous thread, just the first post on this thread as it covers the most common questions and means people can get an answer quickly.

    Welcome to the thread :)

    Great new thread Lozza!

    Just wanted to thank the ladies who helped me last week regarding the Avon Rich Nourishing Face cream. Picked the 'offending' tub up from my customer on Friday, and yes its like liquid and not at all like you'd think a moisturiser should be.

    Haven't had a great response from C13 so hoping that C14 will be better. The children where I live should be back at school when I have to put my C14 order in and I'm hoping this will encourage everyone to turn their focus towards Christmas! ;)

    I think I've mentioned this before.
    But customers have statutory rights that Avon cannot deny (I'm not saying they are).
    If a product is actually faulty then customers are entitiled to a refund or replacement under the sales of goods act. If it's on day 91 then that makes not difference. Avon cannot override UK law.

    I'm sure that genuine problems can be sorted as Avon seem to be a good company, but I'm just pointing out that just because a retailers warranty doesn't cover something that cannot overrule stautory rights.
  • Just recently joined Avon and starting to get my head around it a bit more. My 2nd order is due tomorrow and I'm glad I qualify for the £148 level commission as I didn't get anything on my 1st order. I wasn't really ready to do the 1st order, but did it anyway, and now with hindsight, I should have waited because that was just dead money. Well too late now and in reality, it was probably better to just get started.

    The above info is really helpful and I'm glad you clarified that we didn't need to read 'all' the threads. You had me very worried for a moment! These forums are invaluable and although it does take time to read them, I feel that the time invested is very worthwhile.

    Thanks to everyone who contributes.
