The Good

  • 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)

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.

Products

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

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).

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. 

Distributing for Forever Living can be a good and profitable experience. Not only do distributors earn as they sell products, they can also increase their earnings as they recruit other 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.

Forever Living is the most incredible company. I started my business and it has given me freedom, friendship, positivity and more importantly a way out of an industry and career I hated. I've been an FBO for a while now and I've never had to stockpile any products - each FBO has an online website so you don't need to pre-buy products or stock them in case of an order! And the training is second to none, in fact there's so much available training I'm not sure you can get through it all!! Best company ever and I'm so proud to be apart of it :) number one for a reason! x

Have been using Forever Living products on and off for 20 years and love the quality of them. I joined the company as a Business Owner in November 2014, I have never had to hold levels of stock as products are delivered efficiently from head office or can be collected from one of our distribution centres. There is no pressure to team build and with every company retailers are always needed - your journey, your choice. As with any business, if you want success you have to work for it, success is not handed to you on a platter and if it was that easy everyone would be doing it. The quality of the products are second to none with many of them being paraben free. The company do not allow third party and this is a protocol I completely agree with was it devalues the products and takes away to give customers the care and advice they deserve. Products come with a 60 day money back guarantee, we get full training and support throughout, not just at the beginning. We are award winning members of the DSA and Gold Level Investors in people. In order to fully understand the companys marketing plan I personally feel that you need to watch one the companys business presentations, be it in person or on line.

Multi Level Marketing is not for everyone, but if you'e considering.. than at least take a look at Forever Living. Make sure you know on beforehand what it is you're looking for in your life: personal development, income, freedom, flexible hours, ... Do not expect people knocking on your door to get your products or join your team. You'll have to work hard and mostly improve on the necessary skills. A succesfull career outside MLM is NO garantee of success. I have a background in financial services and never expected to give up my job for MLM. For me Forever is an outstanding company with incredible products and the best marketing plan in the industry. Working with Forever feels like working with friends and family willing to share. Best decision in my career. Take your time to investigate, talk to people who already joined MLM companies and ask yourself where you want to be in 5 years. Goodluck and have FUN!

I am a FBO and have been for 2 months. I have a shop on line that can be accessed through a web link there I do not need to stock pile a lot of products. I personally use all the products and have found them to be first class. Their ethics for not testing on animals as well as organic and hand picked plants cannot be anymore pleasing. I have attended many free meetings and have received a lot of support and all of it for free! I am one very happy person and would have not issues in saying it is by far the best on the market.

I started my Forever business in August 2014, at the time i was working full time in the police and my daughter was 11 months old. Within 8 months of starting my business i reached the manager position and was earning more than what i was earning full time in the police. 10 months into the business i was able to leave my job and i work the business around my daughter. I have just had my best month ever in the business and i cant be more thankful to Rex for sharing this amazing opportunity

I am currently a FBO now for just over 4 years. I initial started to just buy products at cost price as I had found them fantastic for a health challenge I had. But over the last 18 months it has become my sole income. You have someone with you exery step of the way. You will only get what you put into it so it's not a get Rich quick scheme. My upline never pushed me or hassled me to do more but was always there when I needed more help. I have looked at other companies and they don't pay as well as forever do. Forever is a very ethical company and I build my business on that. Everyone is independent but your never alone. If this business hasn't work for you it's because you didn't work the business. When you sign up its your business and no one else's. Apart from financial rewards I have made some amazing friends along the way and it's a great feeling to be able to offer others this amazing opportunity. Also I love that forever don't pay celebrities to endorse our products and waste money but rather pay it back to its FBOs in bonuses. If your thinking about getting started with foreve rmake sure you get all the info you need and join with the right person for you.

Awesome company to work alongside. You do not have to stock products, they can be sent straight to the customer. You can work this business alongside other commitments and work it anywhere. If you like talking to people this is a great opportunity for you. BUT it is not a get rich quick scheme. You need to be motivated. The business cycle is simple but very effective. We hold the Gold standard (Investors in People) for our training. Even if you sign up with a new distributor there will always be someone able to help you get started. The Products are wonderful and I use every day

I have tried many different network marketing companies. the only problem I run into is that they all require some kind of investment and however minimal they might be for someone low on funds it can be too much. I personally like to do network marketing. However, most companies require some initial investment to join and to start making any money. I started doing research online and found a few companies that do not require any membership fee or initial fee. The problem with most of them is that they still require an initial investment. You have to buy some type of package and on that it depends how much commission you get paid. This is unfair to me! I kept searching and I believe that I found the perfect company. It's called Forever Living Products. Can you believe that you can start maing money right away without investing anything else but your time> Check it out! It is free to join, no minimum monthly points requirements, no auto-ship, and the income potential is unlimited.

An excellent company with fantastic products, the whole family including the dog drink the Aloe Gel with amazing results. Great compensation plan and the training is some of the best I've seen and as an Adult Education Lecturer, I know what I'm talking about. All this said it is not for anyone looking for a get rich quick scheme with very little effort. Like anything worthwhile in life you get out of it what you put in and what you get is a better healthier lifestyle, better wealth and best of all the opportunity to leave a legacy for your family.
