The Good

  • Startup Cost
  • Positive Forever Living Reviews
  • High Commission Possibility
  • Products
  • Extensive Training Provided
  • Personal Discounts and Bonuses
  • Recruitment Earnings

Startup Cost 

It costs $87.92 or $253 to initially join Forever Living as an independent distributor.

For those who are interested in joining the MLM company as an independent distributor, there are six starter packs to choose from:

  • Start Your Journy Business Pak ($253)
  • Start Your Journy Skincare Pak ($253)
  • Clean 9 Pak — Chocolate Lite Ultra ($87.92)
  • Clean 9 Pak — Vanilla Lite Ultra ($87.92)
  • Touch of Forever ($364.65)

These starter packs are available in English or Spanish.

Forever Living supplies new distributors with all the training they need to get started in their new business ventures. The company will also match these individuals up with a sponsor if they do not personally know someone who is a distributor.

Positive Forever Living Reviews

The large majority of reviews that we have received for Forever Living have been overwhelmingly positive. Customers and consumers of Forever Living's health and beauty products have reported experiencing some benefits like fewer trips to the doctor, quality customer service, and even weight loss because of the effects of aloe-based products and other health products sold by Forever Living.

Forever Living Distributors detail a solid compensation plan and report that Forever Living is an easy way to earn money.

While a very small number of customers have reported being unhappy with the improved formula for the Aloe Vera Gel and have complained about the diluted taste, the majority of customers are happy with the product.

High Commission Possibility

Distributors, or Forever Business Owners, purchase products at wholesale and then resell these products at retail through network marketing or multi-level marketing. Distributors then receive the difference as profit with commissions as high as 48 percent.


Forever Living has an extensive range of health and wellness products, many of which include aloe vera products. Though Forever Living is famous for its aloe vera plant production, the MLM company also offers bee products such as Forever Bee Honey and Forever Bee Pollen, several essential oils, nutritional supplements, personal care products, and F.I.T. supplements to help people lose weight.

Aloe vera gel and aloe vera juice are ingredients in many skin care, lip balm, drink, and other nutritional products. Many of their products include pure aloe vera gel.

Extensive Training Provided

Forever Living provides new distributors with a variety of training outlets such as brochures, videos, meetings, workshops, and matching new distributors with a sponsor to help them in their new business venture.

Personal Discounts and Bonuses

Distributors receive a 30 percent discount on products. They also receive personal discounts up to 18 percent when they sponsor new customers and have opportunities to earn leadership bonuses from 2-6 percent.

Additional discounts and bonuses are available depending on where the distributor is in the marketing plan.

Recruitment Earnings

The Forever Living compensation plan provides extra incentive for distributors aside from product sales. Recruiting others to join as members can bring potential earnings between $800-$2,000 monthly after 4 months of building a downline and helping them build their business successfully.

The Bad

  • Various Legal Issues
  • Requires a Large Customer Base
  • Majority of Distributors Receive No Compensation

Various Legal Issues

Forever Living has been involved in several legal battles over the years. In 1996, the IRS and the National Tax Agency of Japan audited Forever Living for possible tax evasion.

These legal issues, however, seem to be tied to the Japan market specifically, which will perhaps be less concerning to potential distributors from outside of that market. 

Claims made in 2004 regarding Forever Living products violated several laws in Hungary for nutritional products registration and advertising and cosmetics for medicinal use.

Requires a Large Customer Base

The earning potential for selling Forever Living Products takes significant work in order to make a decent income, at least through selling product only.

A customer base of 10–20 people will generate about $300–$500 monthly. In order to make between $30,000 and $50,000 off of selling products alone, one would have to have over 100 customers (this is apart from income from network sales).

Majority of Distributors Receive No Compensation

Based on a statement published on Forever Living's website, 88.6% of their distributors receive no compensation in an average month. Within the group that received compensation (11%), 69% receive an average of $105 per month; 30% earn an average of $1,493 per month; less than 1% earn an average of $28,512 per month.

Forever Living claims that this low percentage of distributors receiving earnings is a result of many people joining the MLM for a discounted product price and that making money is not important to these distributors. 

The Bottom Line

The business opportunity from Forever Living Products International, Inc. is a good fit for individuals who are looking to start a home-based business and love to talk about aloe vera and its health benefits. 

While the opportunity might be a good fit for those seeking a product discount, the statistic that only around 11% of distributors earn commission in an average month might deter prospective distributors.

The company does appear to be a legitimate business opportunity. We recommend researching this opportunity to ensure it is the right fit for your needs.

Everything about this company is quality. In particular I find the quality of the products and the integrity of Forever Living Products are unquestionably it's biggest assets. Everything they do is for the benefit of their customers and distributors. They have exceeded every single expectation I had from when I started as a distributor. They literally change lives. My life is unrecognisable to what it was only 18 months ago. I call them the self development company. There is no pressure, you work at your own pace and the training and support network is second to none. Highly recommended.

This is a Fantastic Company. Training and ethics are first class. you can work in 160 countries. if you want a real business with real Residual income, then there isn't any better out there. You dont need to recruit to have a financially sound Retail business. Ticks all the boxes. 1 word of advise: Dont let it pass you by without at least having a proper look.



October 7th, 2016

Forever provides you a platform to develop your business in easy manner , worldwide business running opportunity on very low investment. World leader in Aloe vera and Bee hives, the quality of FLP products are truly incredible , also its a distributor friendly company.



October 5th, 2016

Best company I have ever seen . Makes me happy . It is purely natural aloe vera and there is no company in the world that makes this much valueable aloe vera.



September 26th, 2016

Brilliant and very generous compensation plan. I've not come across any that can match it so far. The products are fantastic, the training and support is also the best along with the top ethical practices that are used

Having used the forever living trim , tone and tighten I can say it's amazing !! I lost 1.5 inches within the first hour and a following inch the next morning !! The products are easy to use and the instructions easy to follow, I farted twice during the wrapping process and I'm not sure if this helped with weight loss as I followed through one of those times. I shall try this product again but overall very impressed !! One happy customer !!



September 26th, 2016

There are too many distributors out there now and alot of them have given Forever Living a bad name. People feel hounded by 'aloe vera lady'


Tana Cooper

I am not involved with Forever in any way except that I buy and LOVE the products. I've tried everything over the years from the most expensive to Vaseline and Nivea. This is the first product that I can actually see the difference on my skin. It sinks into your skin, and just feels beautiful. And the toothpaste is also amazing. I place a regular order now - and if anyone is in doubt they should try it. I love it and will always buy it.

I've been with the company for 15 years and joined with quite a lot of scepticism about the products and the earning potential. I already ran my own business and wondered how this would compare. I started my own business with £3000 and left after making a good living for 20 years with......nothing. I have worked steadily with forever for 15 years and now do very little and still earn...... a growing income. Every business that is successful takes hard work. No surprise there, then. To receive a 'residual income' (pension) in a job takes 40 years. I did it in 5 years. The products: try them and see. We did and they changed our lives The company: no company is perfect. This one isn't either. I have worked out that it's better than most. The support and training: second to none



August 24th, 2016

Excellent range of products which include skin care, health, nutrition, household and make up . All are covered by full money back guarantee should they not come up to customers expectations. This should indicate the confidence that the company have in what is on offer. Items can be purchased. in full knowledge that no animal testing has been involved at any stage. Indeed many of products have shown very good results when used on dogs, horses etc . Customer service is very good and if interested in the business side , full back up and training would be given as there is tremendous potential.

Products are way less effective than advertised. Much more is marketing than effect and also requires lots of products for one effect which means lots of money. Good for the first in the business. After a network is developed, joining requires much more effort
