Nuskin by Blake Roney and found at nuskin.com is a multi-level marketing company that uses skin products as its method of legitimizing downline recruitment. The company 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 Nuskin 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, to say the least.
While the actual product has its share of mixed reviews, it is more expensive than many competitor products and effectiveness is questionable according to testing experts. The main issues deal with the fact that the way they run their downline is typical run of the mill pyramid shape, which 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, but when you factor in that Nuskin 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 are taking huger 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, but they do have a product to hawk, they do have desperate people they talk into thinking they will make loads of money with Nuskin, and they’re so sure that these desperate people will shell out bucks and bucks til they’re tapped out.
That’s ok, 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 to any of our dear readers.
The government really would love to call it a pyramid scam, and we sadly have to play along with the loophole these Nuskin people use, so we say, just stay away from it.
Thanks for reading…
