Welcome to my Oriflame Review!

Oriflame is one of the fastest growing beauty companies in the direct sales industry.

Does this mean that they offer a legitimate MLM Business opportunity, or is this another home business scam or pyramid scheme? I will be answering this question in my Oriflame Review!

In this Oriflame Review, I will be examining their company, products, and more importantly, the MLM Business Opportunity that they offer as an Oriflame Consultant.  Does Oriflame offer you the tools and the potential for success?  This is my unbiased Oriflame Review.

Company Details & History

Oriflame Logo imageFounded in Sweden in 1967 by brothers Jonas and Robert af Jochnick, and friend Bengt Hellsten, Oriflame is a company that has experienced tremendous success and growth.

Represented by nearly 3.6 million Consultants and 8000 employees, Oriflame operates in more than 60 countries, and reports 1.5 Billion Euros in annual sales.

Product Line

Oriflame offers more than 1000 products and continues to add 300 new products every year.  They accomplish with through their Research and Development team which employs more than 100 scientists and technical experts to formulate products related to:

  • Skin Care
  • Colour Cosmetics
  • Fragrances
  • Personal & Hair Care
  • Accessories
  • Wellness

Oriflame products are offered exclusively through their large network of Oriflame Consultants, which leads us into my review of the Oriflame MLM Business Opportunity.

MLM Business – How it all works

You can join Oriflame by getting in touch with a Consultant directly, or by contacting your local Oriflame office.  During this process, you will complete and submit your Consultant application to receive your membership and starter kit.

Your starter kit will contain materials about Oriflame and their products, as well as guides, catalogues, and product samples to begin sharing with your friends and family members.

Consultant Training & Support

As a brand new Oriflame Consultant, you will be paired up with a more experienced Consultant who will serve as your mentor and coach.  This person will be your support line as you are being introduced to Oriflame, and will coach you through the beginning stages of your new Oriflame business.

Questions that must be asked…

Typically in MLM businesses, an upfront investment for a starter kit or business pack is required, along with your enrollment into a monthly Autoship program.  This Autoship program is designed to automatically ship products to your home every month, and will bill your credit card accordingly.

Generally speaking, the more you are willing to spend on products, the more you will be qualified to earn within that company’s compensation plan.  You will need to get in touch with a Consultant directly to learn what purchase requirements are in place to optimize your earning potential within the Oriflame Compensation Plan.

Oriflame Review Conclusion

In my opinion, Oriflame is a legitimate company, and should not be considered as a scam.  They are on a mission to become the number one direct selling beauty company in the world.  Considering their staggering rate of growth, and their tremendous line of high-quality products, this vision could very well become a reality.

Food for thought…

It is important to note that this is a business where you will be trained and encouraged to prospect among your network of friends, family members, neighbors, and anyone else who you feel would benefit from Oriflame’s products?  This will be the basis on your new Oriflame business building training.

With that being said, I believe that Oriflame offers high-quality products along with a solid business opportunity for those who have a passion for their products and wish to share them with friends and family members.

  4. I have been oriflame user for some years. I have no complaints about the product. I admit that they have good products. I have tried the creams, soaps, perfumes and many others.

    Is this supposed to be a legit review. It reads more like a 12 year old trying to fill up a page without having done any research.
    Autoship? Prospect among family is the basis of training ?

    Total pyramid scheme !
    Shame on you

    • Dave Fennell says:


      If you read into the review, I am making the point that training is based upon building the business using family and friends as a referral system. This is a negative aspect to their business model that I am trying to get across to those doing their due diligence.

  6. Huda sheikh says:

    Very nice review. however, I’d like to add that Oriflame demands fees along with membership form but its as little as $5 . I am an oriflame cosultant and must say that I have not confronted a single case of fraud. They provide a good opertunity to earn.

  7. bee says:

    How much did they pay you for this review? lmao.

    • Dave Fennell says:

      I write this with complete honesty, I did not receive a single cent from any company that I reviewed on this website. Please also note that I wrote these reviews 4-5 years ago and many of the details surrounding many of these companies has likely changed.
