To be perfectly frank here, my expectation was one of white washing or completely ignoring my questions. I was thrilled to get the detailed answers to my questions.
People are very supportive too, they actually scheduled a launch to invite folks and introduce me and the products.
PRODUCT LINEUP - This company is coconut water based with a focus on organic and wild crafted ingredients. This line has no makeup other than lip tint/gloss. They have a good anti-aging trio for skincare and a non-tinted lip balm. There’s a nice face wash, tooth paste options, hair care and some nice offerings, laundry soap, sanitizer, bug repellent on the home front and some great superfood supplementation. Also I like that they offer organic essential oils.

SIGNING UP! This is not an easy system to figure out. You are required to have a monthly spend that adds up to 75 'points' but basically about $80-100+ per month or $1200 in annual spend or you won't see any commission on your sales. OR you get folks under you. My focus, while I sure would love to have folks join under me, has been about marketing the products themselves. If folks love it and want to also sell it, terrific! I don't push.
International transfers can take up to 7 business days to clear funds. I have sold Miessence for 2 years now. While I have gotten a few discounts on product, I have earned zero and spent quite a bit annually. So to beta test actually getting a paycheck out of Miessence, I selected to request a direct deposit payment of the near $50.00 I had recently 'earned'. I got a nice letter from corporate back warning me that before they processed my request, I may be interested to know "we advise our Reps to not withdraw amounts less than $60 due to the bank and international fees that are deducted by your bank. With amounts less than $50 you will find that you may lose almost all of your bonuses in these fees. In this case we suggest that you keep the funds and use them towards a future purchase or wait for them to increase a bit more." And this would be why I have earned goose egg in 24 months.
UGLY - Prospective clients, who perhaps wish to do some research on their own first prior to ordering from you or signing up with you as an Independent Rep, will get lost or orphaned if they google search first before first going to your site and it will be entirely up to you to prove they are your clients and fix that. Unless you are very salesy and push to have people rep under you, this is not a money maker but the products are truly honestly great.
Support - Corporate office support is spotty at best. Once there was an issue with the website and I ended up with 70 rather than 7 shave gel samples. Within 5 minutes I emailed to address the concern and got a reply back that the product 'had already shipped' which is physically impossible BS. As I write a blog where many folks purchase based upon my reviews, there's no telling who has bought what that I never saw compensation for. IS it worth it? This is entirely up to you and your perspective. IF you can control your clients, get names, emails and assure you are getting credit for your sales and are into building a base of reps under you, and are passionate about effective organic products, then maybe so.
Miessence: For $75.95 you can purchase their probiotic, Alkalising or Antioxidant powders. These are their superfoods and they are excellent. All 3 may be purchased for $204.95. Micessence also does periodically offer a 30% off or, if your spend level is high enough they give you that. Either power is 105g of product.
