How is the service at the Oriflame shop?
Maggie: Fabulous. The staff at Oriflame are efficient. They go the extra mile and are extremely knowledgeable.
Sharon: I find the service excellent; the personnel are very friendly and make you feel at home. I get first hand advice on the cosmetics from the in-house beauticians, who are well versed with the products and its usages, which is extremely helpful.
How have the Oriflame products changed your life?
Sharon: I used to wear basic makeup for my everyday wear. As an Independent Consultant with Oriflame I now wear my full makeup kit daily. This helped me market the products and also boosted myself esteem and has given me a much-improved image.
Jeremy: It has changed my life because now my skin glows. My friends tell me I look good. At the end of the month also the company gives me a little bonus.
Maggie: They have changed my life. I look great and feel fabulous each day.
Some people feel the pricing is steep, how do you feel about this?
Jeremy: The prices are good. But if they can adjust them a little, it will be good and fair for most of us.
Maggie: I feel the pricing is great since these are products of high quality. One can reduce the cost further by joining Oriflame as a user (you buy them at consultant rates). The products also last up to four months or more.
Sharon: As much as price is a factor, the quality of the product and the results it gives is even more important. Oriflame products are made from natural ingredients. I feel the products are fairly priced and the company caters for a whole range of individual needs and its pricing structure caters for all affordability levels.
Have you recommended them to your friends and family?
Jeremy: Yes I have. As a consultant I also have a big network of 34 persons.
Maggie: Absolutely. My spouse is using the North for Men range. My son is using the Mattifying cream while my daughter loves the bootylicious lipgloss and varnish. My friends are also big time users of Oriflame.
Sharon: Yes. I have. My husband uses the North for Men range. Signature EDT and Deo of fragrances range is his favorite. My daughter uses the Grape range of the Skin Care, Miss Punk of the fragrance range, and is thoroughly enjoying the Color cosmetics. My mother is using the whole Time Reversing range. It has given her a rejuvenated look. I have also introduced Oriflame to many of my friends, who are comfortable with the products and are happy with the results. I have successfully signed on 73 consultants personally and through this network of 73 consultants, we have managed to open up a network of 546 Consultants.
Through Oriflame, I am now my own boss; I have gained financial freedom and fantastic lifestyle not forgetting a great network of friends that I never knew before Oriflame. Oriflame allows us to make money today and fulfil our dreams tomorrow. To those out there do not give it a second thought, sign on today.
