Nu Skin Review
by David Harris | Updated on August 13, 2022, at 7:02 AM:
Nu Skin by Blake Roney is found at nuskin.com and is a multi-level marketing or MLM company.
It uses skin products as its method of legitimizing downline recruitment.
Nu Skin is full of problematic issues, some of which we detail in this article.
I say some because there is a bit of infighting and dirty laundry among Nu Skin family disputes.
Our job is to focus on the product.
Besides being a multi-level marketing company, which is a model we so rarely recommend, their business plan is terrible.
While the actual product has its share of mixed reviews, it is more expensive than many competitor products.
Its effectiveness is questionable according to testing experts.
The main issues deal with the fact that the way they run their downline is that it’s pyramidically shaped.
This means not only the very top people are making any money.
But the bottom people are spending more than they earn.
Anyone in MLM is used to this type of shenanigans.
When you factor in that Nu Skin charges ridiculous money on seminars they put together to people who actually might want to, uh, work for them.
It makes no sense at all and is almost criminal in this writer’s opinion.
So not only are you spending boatloads on the product sample kits…
They expect you to pay what they should be paying to put their own events together for you to be a potential distributor.
Not only are the top people taking the highest cuts from the bottom rung.
But expect them to shell out for expenses the top should shoulder.
How many other ways can I put this?
It’s just lightly kissing scam proportions.
They do have a product to hawk.
They do have desperate people they talk into thinking they will make loads of money with Nu Skin.
And they’re so sure that these desperate people will shell out big bucks until they’re tapped out.
There will be more to come along, so they have no problem going through a near inexhaustible human resource.
That is no ethical way to run a business and we will not recommend it.
The government really would love to call it a pyramid scam.
And we sadly have to play along with the loophole these Nu Skin people use, so we say, just stay away from it.
Thanks for reading our Nu Skin review.
