The Top 20 Avon Products of All Time

In this post, we are going to review the top 20 Avon Products of all time. Avon is a pioneer in the direct selling industry.  You could easily call them the biggest and the best. They have nearly 1,000 products to choose from, and the company has been around nearly 130-years.  

In this post, I am going to do my best to consolidate their top 20 products of all time. Keep in mind this is just my opinion, and we can agree to disagree.  If you disagree, make sure you leave a comment below and share your thoughts.

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.

avon productsIn 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 currently does business in more than 100 different countries and offers approximately 1,000 different products to buy. 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 130 years of strong success. 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 makes me very happy.

How I Came Up with This List

I used a variety of methods to come up with this top 20 Avon products list. Some of it is from my own experience. I also looked at sales data, online reviews, and talked with other Avon reps. Once again, the list is very subjective.

Top 20 Avon Products of All Time

Let’s get started with the top 20 Avon products of all time.  I’ll start at number twenty and work my way down to number one.

20: Clearskin® Professional Deep Pore Cleansing Scrub

If you have acne and want to do something about it, check out this product.  It helps clear and reduce the number of acne blemishes and pimples.  It helps leave your skin feeling cool, clean and healthy.  It is dermatologist tested. Use it in the morning and evening. One 4.2 fl oz tube normally sells in the $7 to $12 range.

19: Avon Roll On Deodorant

Most people use deodorant (they should anyway).  Avon has several different deodorants for men and women. They smell great, are long-lasting, go on smoothly and aren’t greasy.  They offer 24-hour wetness protection.  Some of the styles include Candid, Far Away, Haiku, Imari, Timeless, Sweet Honesty, Black Suede, Mesmerize, Musk Marine, Feelin’ Fresh, Cool Confidence, On Duty, Skin So Soft, and Wild Country.  They normally sell for $1.99 each.

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.  It normally sells in the $10 to $12 range.

17: Avon Glimmersticks Waterproof Eye Liner

Women 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. It’s also waterproof.  Please ladies, do not use these while driving. It seems I see this often.  It normally sells in the $7 to $10 range.

16: Avon Anew Clinical Eye Lift Pro Dual Eye System

This helps your make your eyelids feel weightless and younger.  It keeps you looking wide awake.  It reduces the appearance of crow’s-feet and the look of eyelid sagging.  Use it twice daily.  It normally sells for about $30.

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

Bugs drive me crazy.  How about you?  This product helps repel mosquitoes, ticks, black flies, sand flies, gnats, and no-seeums.  It also provides 30 SPF protection. It’s non greasy and has Vitamin E and aloe.  It normally sells for about $14 per bottle.

14: Avon Care Silicone Glove Protective Hand Cream

If you’ve got dry or itchy hands, check out this product.  This helps moisturize your skin, while reducing irritation and dryness.  It is dermatologist tested.

13: Avon Haiku Eau de Parfum

This is another one of the top Avon products, which happens to be a best-seller. Spray this on and you will feel like you are in a Japanese flower garden.  Use it once a day.  It’s not over powering either.  It normally sells for about $18 to $25 per bottle. On the company’s website there are currently 587 reviews, with an average 4.8-star rating.

12: Avon Far Away Eau de Parfum

This has a secret combination of jasmine, peach, orange, all combined with vanilla musk, sandalwood and amber.  It has a soothing scent to calm your moods.  I know you will love it. On the website there are 397 reviews with an average 4.7-star rating. It normally sells for about $20.

11: Avon Senses Silky Vanilla Body Spray

This is another one of the most popular Avon products.  This mist leaves your skin feeling fresh. Enjoy the vanilla and brown sugar smell.  Just spray it on and relax.  Use it once a day and enjoy it.  A bottle normally sells for about $10.

10: Avon Black Suede Cologne

This is another popular product that has been around for a long time.  It’s a combination of sweet mossy tones and spicy accents, combined with amber, woods and musk.  It’s great for the manly man.  You can get a bottle for about $20.

9: Avon Mesmerize Cologne

It smells great and lasts all day.  From what I hear and read online, both men and women alike love this product.  It currently has 99 reviews with an average 4.8-star rating on the company’s website.  This normally sells for $20 to $25 per bottle.

8: Avon Soft Pink Bubble Bath

There’s nothing better than a bubble bath after a long day at work. If you need to relax and unwind, do yourself a favor and treat yourself to the Soft Pink Bubble Bath.  Guys, you should even try it.  It’s great for a romantic night with your significant other.  This product helps me relax.

7: Avon Skin So Soft Radiant Moisture Body Lotion

I love body lotion. My skin dries out and gets rough-looking from the Florida sun. I’ve tried many different lotions and this one is my favorite.  You can get an 11.8 fl oz bottle for about $8 to $10.

6: Avon Skin So Soft Shower Gel

I normally take a couple of showers per day, because of the heat here in Florida.  I use this shower gel whenever I can. It doesn’t dry out my skin, plus I enjoy the smell.  It currently has a 4.6-star rating on the company’s website, with 150 reviews.  You can order a bottle for about $6.

5: Avon Foot Works Maximum StrengthHeal Cream

I live in Florida and wear flip-flops 365-days per year.  As a result, my feet get dried out and cracked.  Every night before I go to bed, I rub on some of the Foot Works Heal Cream on my feet and it works its like magic while I sleep. It provides 24-hour moisturization and helps soften callused skin. It’s normally priced in the $4 to $7 range.

4: Avon True Color Moisturizing Eye Make Up Remover Lotion

This Avon product helps moisturize lashes and fragile skin around the eyes.  It works quickly, is gentle, and removes all traces of eye makeup. It is water based and clinically tested.  This product normally sells in the $4 to $8 range.

3: Avon Ultimate Multi-Performance Night Cream

This works wonders on your skin while you sleep.  It helps hydrate your skin and restore the youthful appearance. It also helps with the skin’s texture, crow’s-feet, skin tone and fine wrinkles.  It is also allergy tested and dermatologist tested.  This product normally sells in the $25 to $40 range, but goes on sale all the time.

2: Avon Wild Country Cologne

Many people don’t realize Avon has products for guys too.  One of the most popular men’s products is the Wild Country cologne.  This has been a customer favorite for more than 50 years.  I call it a 3 ounce bottle of masculinity. It is a classic fusion of bergamot, sandalwood and aromatic woods.  A bottle normally sells in the $15 to $30 range.

1: Avon Skin So Soft Bath Oil

This is easily one of best-selling Avon products, and definitely one of my personal favorites.  You could build a solid business just with the Skin So Soft product line. The original bath oil is really, really popular.  You can use it for so many different things.  It smooths dry skin without irritation.  It leaves your skin feeling soft.  It has a fresh herbal scent.  Take a small amount and apply it to your arms and legs right after you bathe. The normal price ranges between $10 and $20 for a 16.9 ounce bottle.

Honorable Mention

Here are some additional Avon products that didn’t make my top 20 list, but are definitely worth trying out.

1: Avon Imari Eau de Toilette

This is a chypre, floral perfume.  It has a touch of citrus, musk and jasmine, along with some hints of vanilla orchid. It comes in a 1.7 fl oz bottle.  It normally sells in the $15 to $25 range.  Be sure to check for sales.

2: Infinite Lift Targeted Contouring Serum

Fight aging with one action.  It is formulated with Polypeptide Life Complex.  It lifts the facial skin for a younger, natural look.  It is hypo-allergenic and dermatologist tested. It’s normally priced in the $20 to $35 range, depending upon the current sale.

3: Anew Ultimate Cream Cleanser

This product removes makeup from the face and eyes. It is back by popular demand.  It removes impurities from your face and feels richly hydrating.  One tube is 4.2 fl oz. The normal price is about $7 to $15 range.

  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 (http://chuckholmes.aweber.com). 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.
