Shortly after moving here it was Pampered Chef and Scentsy.

This is the new home 'party', without the party. Undecided

Two of the people who are selling the cleaning stuff did the Scentsy thing too!

Some of the parties were fun, cocktails, friends, food...I feel totally used now and ripped off. Weeping

What a gyp. Undecided

Two friends sell cleaning stuff.
Four friends selling makeup.
Another friend sells diet plans
Yet another friend sells this woo-ish garbage (cleansing crystals)
Two people sell jewelry
Yet another is heavily into 'essential oils.'

Each person has their own page, where they talk about how wonderful their products are. Then there's the backhanded shaming if you don't buy anything -- like you're not supporting them...

The biggest problem I have with this is that I can buy makeup for far less than the $40 price or $30 mascara...don't get me started on how expansive the skin care stuff is. $80 for an eye serum that's exactly the same as Clinique that I can get at the mall for $35 (not to mention, the Clinique bottle is bigger).

Or $120 mop....for real.

I've asked them to stop adding me to their groups (I know I'm not the only one to do this) -- so now they're all posting a meme....

Difference is Kylie Jenner and Michael Jordan are selling their products in stores and you know you are getting what you paid for. Selling stuff online especially on Facebook can be very sketchy.

Also $120 for a mop?!?! I can get one delivered to my door from Amazon for half that price.

You can get a mop for $19 US.

Even better it's a Mop that works without a stupid gimmick that ruins the actual ability to be a mop.

It's sure as shit not magic. I'm told that it you still have to push it.

And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Well it doesn't make Margaritas (yet) but it is self propelled.
