skin care retail

My solution supplier only offers a very limited inventory of retail products. I'd like to offer more to my customers than exfoliater, body wash and extender. Looking at Fake Bake, Aviva, and South Seas. Wanting to carry a sunless tanner for face, a bronzing powder, spf formulated for sunless tanning, moisturizer , etc. In your opinion, which of these companies has the best retail products? Not interested in changing solutions at this time. Thank you.

Smile Re: skin care retail

I have been mobile tanning for about 2 years and a few months ago I added the skincare products from Rodan+Fields. The doctors who created Proactive Solutions have created a new skincare line for aging skin. Even though I am "stepping out of the box" by not going with a tanning company's products, I have been really happy with the response from my clients. The professionalism and credibility of the line grabs my customer's attention!
The niche that has worked extremely well for me is their REVERSE regimen. REVERSE is a series of four products that reduces dark spots and dullness caused from sun damage. As we know...most of our clients have at some point been "sun goddesses!" and now their skin shows it. These products treat, correct and prevent further damage and I have been able to tie it in very easily with my tanners...because most of them understand how important it is to take care of their skin! They also have an amazing microdermabrasion paste that is a fantastic body exfoliator and sunless products that I sell as extenders for both the face and the body.
The real benefit of working with this company (as opposed to other "retail" lines) is that I have no inventory to lug around and there is an opportunity to set them up on a replenishment program that ables me to receive residual income on them. As a mobile tanner it is ideal!!! The $$ potential is so much greater now that I am my clients all around skin care specialist...not just someone who gives them a $40 tan every few weeks
PM me if you want any more details!

Re: skin care retail

Yes Delany...you could say that it is a Multi-level marketing business model...or network marketing...or direct selling...but it is far from a scam! (which many people are quick to judge!) There is no reason for two of the countries most successful and famous dermatologist to create something negative with their names on it.

The benefit to working with a company with this business model for us is that we are already entrepreneurs! We understand what is involved with starting our own businesses. You make money two ways...1) selling product, which is an easy integration with providing a beautiful spray tan for our clients and 2)finding other like minded people who see the value in running a business that they control.

I know I may sound like I am ringing my own bell...but adding this company to my business has been fantastic! To be involved with a company with this type of reputation in the beginning stages is really exciting!!!

Re: skin care retail

You are advertising something here that you could make money off of (ie if she signs up you make money on her and anyone that signs up under her). I think you should pay to advertise if you profit from something you post

Re: skin care retail

We sell Fake Bake and it flies off the shelves! We carry to at home tanners, 2 moisturizers, body wash, bronzing lotion & a dry oil spray. We always offer 20% off to new clients and most will purchase 2-3 items. We have a lot of clients who don't even come here for services that just come in to buy that line!

Calinfornia Tan has a bronzing powder. Their new bottles look sharp too, and they don't have a retarded name like "Fake Bake." Not sure that their SPF is "formulated" for sunless, but they sell sunless and they sell SPF. They also have various moisturizers (their "Tan Extender with Bronzers" is nice). They have a sunless tanner, but I don't think they have one specifically for faces.

I like their sunless line.

I think this is a great idea. Is it better to go through a local person that sells it or straight to the distributor? I'm getting ready to launch selling Norvell products, only after trying them myself, and I really like them.

What kind of training did the company give you before you started selling them?

Re: skin care retail

MLM companies rarely train other than a handful of videos online. There are tons of companies you can look into if this is the route you want to go. Most of the success with them has to do with signing up new people to work under you as the profits are low.

Re: skin care retail

Be very careful, I googled Rodan+Fields and it is swarming with the word SCAM.
