Nu Skin - My True Opinion


I really need to share this with ALL of YOU.

I started working as an agent for Nu Skin about 2 months ago, and I've come to find that so many of Nu Skin's customers are VERY SATISFIED with the products, The reviews and the before and after results that was privatel sent on the Nu Skin Support Group was Just Astonishing!!! Even Though even if I have to say so myself the products are quite a bit over alot of people's budget range, BUT Might also be VERY WELL WORTH the price! 

I mean, There's A SOAP! EPOCH Polishing Bar that actually WASHES off any stains on your body as if it was just Dirt.

A Lady asked our opinion on her skin and she sent a Picture. Her skin looked really bad, can't really go into detail, but anyway, they suggested the Clear Action System, and OH MY WORD!!!! The Results after just 1 WEEK WAS AMAZING!!!! I really couldn't believe my eyes!!

Geez then I'm not even talking about the Nutriol Shampoo or the Nutriol Eyelash Treatment, it actually REALLY make your HAIR and EYELASHES GROW astonishingly fast and REFRESHED!

Contouring Lip Gloss that actually thickens YOUR LIPS!

EPOCH Baobab Body Butter that actually DOES DELIVER RESULTS!!!

Need I say more?

If people would only Test ONE PRODUCT I thick I can REALLY ASSURE ANYONE would be satisfied with their Results!!

Think About It

I certainly have!



Nu Skin Enterprises is an American multilevel marketing company that develops and sells personal care products and dietary supplements under its Nu Skin and Pharmanex brands.[4] Nu Skin was founded in 1984 in Provo, Utah.[5] The company originated in the United States and began its first foreign operation in Canada in 1990. One year later, the company began operations in Asia with the opening of Hong Kong.[6] In 1996 the company listed on the New York Stock Exchange. The company markets its products in 54 markets through a network of approximately 1.2 million independent distributors.[3]

In the 1990s, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) investigated Nu Skin over complaints of its multilevel marketing practices.[7] In 1992, Nu Skin reached settlements with five states that had accused the company of deceptive advertising and overstating the income earned by distributors.[8] In 1994, following an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the company paid $1 million and signed a consent decree prohibiting it from making deceptive or unsubstantiated claims about its products.[9] In 1997, the company paid an additional $1.5 million to the FTC to settle ongoing allegations of unsubstantiated promotional claims.[10] In January 2014, the Chinese government announced that it was investigating Nu Skin following a People's Daily newspaper report calling it a "suspected illegal pyramid scheme." In 2016, Nu Skin agreed to pay a $47 million settlement for operating a pyramid scheme after being sued by China in a Utah federal court.[11] Nu Skin was also forced to pay another $750,000 for bribing a top Chinese official with funds from Nu Skin's charitable division after a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission probe.[12]


Brands and products

Under the Nu Skin and Pharmanex brands, the company develops and sells more than 200 personal care products marketed as helping people look and feel younger.[13] In the late 1990s, Nu Skin invested in Big Planet, a multilevel marketing company selling Internet services. The New York Times noted that Big Planet appeared to recruit people "even if they have little knowledge of the technology that they are supposed to be selling." A representative of the company stated: "I believe people who have never touched a computer before can become hugely wealthy in this business."[7]

In 1998, Nu Skin acquired Generation Health, the parent company of the dietary supplement company Pharmanex.[14] The company owns a patent on a device developed by Pharmanex called a "BioPhotonic Scanner", which is designed to measure the carotenoid level in skin. According to Women's Health Letter, the device is a "scam" since it is designed merely to help sell more supplements: Nu Skin's 2002 annual report stated: "As customers track their skin carotenoid content, we believe they will be motivated to consistently consume LifePak for longer periods of time".[15]

In 2009, Nu Skin began working with LifeGen Technologies, a genomics company based in Madison, Wisconsin,[16] Nu Skin acquired LifeGen in December 2011. LifeGen's genetic database aided in the development of Nu Skin's products, launching the ageLOC brand.[17]


Business model and sponsorships

Nu Skin Enterprises' utilizes a multi-level marketing business model. Each distributor markets products directly to potential customers, and can also recruit and train customers to become distributors. Distributors are paid from the retail markup on products they are able to sell personally, as well as a performance bonus based on the sales of distributors they have recruited.[18] Nu Skin states that it pays approximately 43 percent of its product revenue in sales compensation.[19]

In 2008, Nu Skin provided partial funding for a scoreboard at Brigham Young University's football stadium.[20]
