The Top 20 Avon Products of All Time

Guest Post by Greg Boudonck

In this post, we are going to review the top 20 Avon Products of all time. Avon has a wide array of products, so I must admit that this can be a difficult article to write. You may or may not agree with my findings. Feel free to post your opinions or views in the comment area at the end of this post.

I am using several ways to determine this list. It includes:

  • sales figures

  • reviews

  • and even my friends and family’s opinions

Neither I, nor Online MLM is affiliated with Avon. Other than the products we use or have tried, we are not getting reimbursed for this article. It is simply meant to give you an unbiased look at the best products from Avon.

Brief History of Avon

Avon is one of the oldest direct selling companies in the United States. In 1886, David McConnell was selling books door to door. As an enticement to sell the books, David made some simple perfumes at home to give to women who bought his books. Many of these women were more interested in purchasing the perfumes instead of the books, so David started the California Perfume Company.

In 1894, Alexander Henderson partnered with McConnell and in 1916,The California Perfume Company became a corporation in the State of New York. In 1932, the Trademark Avon was granted for the California Perfume Company. Everything then became Avon Products Inc.

Using primarily women as door to door salespeople, Avon took off like a wildfire. Avon has built a large operation whereas they are in over 100 countries and carry a long line of brand names. Avon has also acquired other jewelry and fragrance businesses, and in many cases, kept the brand names.

With fair pricing, and a great plan for the representatives that sell their products, Avon has realized well over 100 years of strong success. In the last few years, Avon has seen a decline in sales, but we are sure that trend will not last. The leadership of Avon will find a way to turn the numbers back in their favor.

Avon also is a strong supporter of many great causes. Some of the main ones are:

  • Avon Foundation for Women

  • Avon Breast Cancer Crusade

  • Avon Speak Out Against Domestic Violence

  • Avon Emergency Relief Fund

  • and Beauty For A Purpose

Just knowing that this company gives back gives me a reason to want to use their products.

Top 20 Avon Products

avon night magic20: Clearskin® Professional Deep Pore Cleansing Scrub

This product has an oil control system that only this Avon product carries. It will exfoliate your skin, and provide a deep cleaning that no soaps can provide. Many have claimed it cools the skin and gives a much younger look.

19: Avon SuperFULL Mascara

The reviews have been tremendous for this mascara that does not clump as many others do. Women claim it makes it look as if they have double or triple the eyelashes than they actually do. They also are extremely pleased with the brush that comes with this mascara.

18: MagiX Face Perfector SPF 20

The sun and other natural, and man made airborne items can damage the skin. This face perfector is not only a sunscreen, but it also provides the means to brighten your face without the use of oils. It contains a gel/powder mix that is without color. Many women claim it is magic, hence its name. I highly recommend this product.

17: Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner

Women actually just love this eye liner. Once it’s on your eyes, you can leave the pencil in your purse because it will last for 8+ hours. Not only that, the Avon Glimmersticks is self sharpening. Please ladies, do not use these while driving. It seems I see this often.

16: Avon Planet Spa African Shea Foot & Elbow Cream with AHA

The parts of the body that tend to harden and crack are the elbows and the heels of our feet. Avon developed this product with those extremely rough areas of the body in mind. The AHA provides extra exfoliation and the mixture softens these areas. All this, and the scent is wonderful too!

15: Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Gentle Breeze SPF 30 Lotion

It was amazing when people discovered that Skin So Soft kept mosquitoes away. With all the terrible diseases that those small creatures carry, finding a product that worked seemed to be difficult. The ingredient in Skin So Soft does work, and when you mix it with a sunscreen, you have a sure hit for a product. This also contains Vitamin E and Aloe, so it leaves your skin in great condition.

14: Avon True Colour Blush in Earthen Rose

This natural color blush has been well received by women. It doesn’t have a “fake” look, and blends well. There are several colors, but Earthen Rose seems to be the overall favorite.

No matter the size of that eye liner pencil, or for that matter, your child’s school pencil, it can be sharpened with this multi-size pencil sharpener that Avon has in their product line. Carry one in your purse and never worry about how to sharpen that eye-liner pencil again.

12: Avon Care Sheer Lip Gloss with Jojoba Oil

The Jojoba oil in this lip gloss provides just what is needed to not only give your lips that gloss, but also moisturizes, and does not dry lips out as other lip glosses tend to do. This product also provides a pink tone which brings out your natural lip color.

11: Avon Care Care Deeply Lip Balm With Aloe

Aloe is one of nature’s healing plants. Our lips go through many hard times, and when they get dry and chapped, just wetting them seems to not work, Avon offers this lip balm that is quite reasonably priced that brings our lips back to the condition they are supposed to be in. I don’t believe I have found anyone who dislikes this product.

10: Avon Planet Spa Mediterranean Olive Oil Conditioning Hair Mask

A day in the sun, rain, wind and other conditions that we encounter can ravage a person’s hair. Olive oil has been known to do wonders for many things, and hair is one. Avon has this Planet Spa Hair Mask that will keep your hair soft and shiny through all the conditions that we can meet throughout a day’s time. This product has been loved unless a person is allergic to olive oil.

9: Avon Advance Techniques Moisture IQ Shampoo

This shampoo was developed using Marine extracts and Panthenol. Many customers claim this shampoo does a better job defeating dandruff than other strictly dandruff shampoos on the market. It does not leave a greasy feeling, but keeps your hair and roots moisturized. Avon also has the conditioner that works hand-in-hand with this shampoo.

8: Unplugged for Her Eau de Parfum Spray by Jon Bon Jovi

This reasonably priced perfume will give the impression that you bought a very expensive item. Jon Bon Jovi put his name on this Avon product not because he needs more money, but because he does like the fragrance it provides. Now ladies, the odds are still low that you could land Bon Jovi by wearing this perfume, but your friends will “get a whiff” and may think you have been dating the rock star.

avon day renewal cream7: Avon Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing and Repair Body Lotion

This product is wonderful. We keep some at all times. When we go to the beach or are out in the sun for a long period of time, this lotion from Avon helps repair any damages to our skin. What’s more, it doesn’t leave a greasy feeling and has no scent. My wife has sensitive skin and it does not bother her.

6: Avon Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel

Women have discovered this nail enamel is as good as going to a salon and getting a UV light nail finish, but it is extremely less costly. The Avon Gel Finish 7 in 1 Nail Enamel comes in a wide variety of colors. The 7 in 1 includes:

  1. Strengthens

  2. Shines

  3. Protects

  4. Gel like finish

  5. Top coat

  6. Base coat

  7. Vivid and amazing colors

What’s more, this product does not contain the dangerous chemicals that many other nail polishes contain.

5: Avon Skin So Soft Soft & Sensual + Argan Moisturizing Body Elixir

I know that my mother just loves this Avon product. It takes very little to cover a large part of your body, and it moisturizes your skin in a natural way. It does not leave a greasy film. The ingredients are absorbed into your skin and help to keep it hydrated no matter what you are doing. It is gentle but also strong, so male and female can all use this product comfortably.

4: Avon Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation

Not only does this foundation lay down a perfect base to apply makeup, it also provides a sunscreen to help protect your face and skin from the sun’s rays that can damage. This Avon product has been a huge seller and greatly accepted.

3: Avon Anew Clinical Pro+ Line Eraser Treatment

This product has a specially developed time release complex that helps take care of those hideous lines and wrinkles. It smooths and texturizes the skin, plumps the skin to fill deep wrinkles and fills lines and repairs them. Those who have used this product in the morning and at night after thoroughly cleansing their skin have shown great improvements. If wrinkles and lines seem to be a problem, I highly recommend the Anew Clinical Pro+ Line Eraser Treatment.

2: Avon Untouchable Strength Eau de Toilette Spray

While the majority of Avon products that have been a part of this list have been for females, the #2 top Avon product is for the men. This wonderful masculine spray cologne has the scent of a very expensive cologne that I could never justify, but the price tag on this Untouchable spray is quite reasonable. The scent is a blend of patchouli, mandarin and cedar leaf oil. I love it, and I believe you will too!

1: Avon Basics Care Deeply with Cocoa Butter Body Lotion

This fantastic lotion by Avon Basics Care Deeply seems to be one of the largest selling products that Avon has in their long list of products. Using a cocoa butter and glycerine compound, this lotion moisturizes the skin and gives a great smell. To be honest, it seems like almost anyone I visit or know has the Avon Basics Care Cocoa Butter Body Lotion in their restroom. I have even noticed this product in restrooms of stores and restaurants. If you have not tried this body lotion, I highly recommend that you do so.

  1. What’s the best way to sell from the website provided by Avon when you sign up to be a rep for the company? Must we have a fairly large email contact list of customers that we know will order on a regular basis and can selling from sites like Facebook and Twitter bring in many new customers, if any, or are we better off selling to people within our own local community?

    Thanks for any suggestions in advance!!

    1. Janie,

      Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a nice comment. I appreciate it.

      Avon does have a great website for their reps to make sales. Selling online is the way to go, as I see it.

      When it comes to building your Avon business online, and getting more online sales, this is what I recommend.

      1. Don’t just send strangers to your Avon website and expect them to buy. There are tens of thousands of Avon reps and you need a reason for people to shop with you and not another rep.

      2. Get an auto-responder and build a list. ASAP. I recommend Aweber ( I suggest you build a list of everyone who ever buys from you in real life, even once. Online, give away a free report about beauty tips, or look beautiful on a budget. Give away this report to generate leads. Build a relationship with these leads via email by sending them valuable emails that train, educate and entertain them about looking and feeling beautiful. Add a link to your Avon site on the bottom of each email. This will make a big difference.

      3. Remember that people like to buy from people they know, like and trust. You must focus on developing those three things with each lead before they will buy from you. Once they DO like you, know you and trust you, they will buy from you all the time.

      4. In a nutshell, build a list, build a relationship with that list by educating people, and then monetize them by sending them to your custom Avon website.

      It took me tens of thousands of dollars and years of experience to learn this process. I am sharing my knowledge with you as a gift. The best way to repay me is to put it to use and once you master it, share it with someone you know.

      I hope that helps.


  2. Avon is a great example of using brand recognition. It is ever evolving, changing with the times. People know the name of Avon and they instantly know what to expect with the product and the sales technique. I think everyone has dabbled in Avon to some extent. There are some weaknesses in the team building structure but from the consumer end this is a great company!

  3. Great article, Greg. I sold Avon for a period of time and really enjoyed it. The company has amazing name brand recognition and most people think very highly of it. The price point is also really, really good. Their comp plan for retailing is great, but I couldn’t get excited about their “network marketing” compensation plan. Thanks for sharing. My favorite Avon product of all time is the Skin So Soft. I have used that for almost 25 years. You can use it for almost anything.


    1. Thank you Chuck,

      I will have to agree that their structure in recruiting other distributors is lacking, but the profits you can make retailing are wonderful, and almost everyone has at least one or two Avon products they love.

      I personally love the Skin So Soft myself, especially when I used to fish consistently in Missouri lakes where the mosquitoes can suck a gallon of blood from you in 5 minutes. That Avon product sent those little flying draculas off to better prospects.

      I didn’t realize you sold Avon for awhile. I never did, but I have done well selling Avon collectible decanters and bottles.
