What is the Oriflame

Are you also asking, what is the Oriflame? Do you think that it is another MLM scam? I know that you have plenty of questions in your mind. So let me answer some of those in my review and may it clear your doubts about the business.

Oriflame Review

Company Overview

Company Name: Oriflame

Owner: Jonas and Robert af Jochnick

Price to Join: Rs 299

My Rating: 7.9 out of 10.0 

What is the Oriflame?

Oriflame is a company that is based on the multi level marketing model and it has been around for almost 60 years. It was founded in the year 1967 by two brothers namely Jonas and Robert af Jochnick. Both the brothers were from Sweden and that is where they founded the company.

They have continued to diversify its products for years and is still in that process. The products that they offer are in the categories of skin care, color cosmetics, fragrances, personal and hair care, accessories, and wellness.

Oriflame operates in many countries around the world including the ones in Asia, Europe, Latin America and Africa.

In this review, I will take a closer look at how the business works and try to determine whether this company is a scam or not. I do not work for this company and this review is completely unbiased. I recommend that you read the entire review before thinking about investing your hard earned money. 

How does Oriflame MLM works?

It was very difficult to find out the information on how the business works because Oriflame does not reveal its compensation plan online or maybe I could not find it. But still I have been able to dig up as much as I can about them so let us take a look.

Here are the ways on how you can earn in Oriflame.


You are offered as low as 20 percent on your personal sales depending on your country and the percentage of commission is around 30 percent in most countries. You just have to make a retail sale to earn this commission.

More Information About Oriflame


Like other MLM companies you can recruit people and build your team and earn commissions on their sales as well. You get a percentage around 6 percent or more in your team sales.

The percentage of commission on team sales increases as you build your downline. You have to get friends or relatives to join and tell them to recruit others as well.


There are several rewards available for you like cash rewards, trips, car allowances and much more. To earn some of these rewards, you and your team must do well and you should advance to a certain rank to earn a reward.

It is important for you to know that the compensation plan may differ from country to country and I suggest that to get a better idea of the compensation plan in your country.

You can attend a seminar or join their training online. On the other hand, I haven’t touched the earnings part yet, so just keep reading.

How much does it Cost to Join?

The price of the starter kit is Rs. 299 and it is one of the most expensive kits among MLM companies. Oriflame is a serious company and that is why their kit is worth serious money too.

If you are not sure about joining after reading this review then you should not join because your Rs. 299 will not come back if you don’t do well.

You have to contact one of their consultants to join the company or find one on their official website. Submit your fees and all the other forms to become a consultant.

You will receive their kit and can start your business. It cost serious money to join but remember that Oriflame has been around for years and operates on a global level so if you do well you can easily recover the price you paid for your kit in the first month itself. On the other hand, the products that they offer are one of a kind and suits well for some people.

How much can You earn?

There is no limit to your earnings and there is no shortage of earners in the Oriflame business but that does not mean that anyone who join earns from it. Some people are not able to recover the price of their starter kits and end up with a headache.


It all depends on the market that you are operating in as well as the number of consultants in your area who are already selling the products.

If everything goes right then you can earn some hundreds and increase it to thousands in some years but if it goes wrong then you know what will happen as I have already written it above.

Are there any Complaints?

Yes, there are some complaints and I have stated them below.


Although the earning potential is good, your earnings is still not guaranteed. It is still based on your personal experience and convincing skills whether you will make much money from it or not. But for most cases, this is usually challenging and not that easy to achieve.

Bottom Line

Oriflame is not a scam and it is one of the most trusted MLM companies. Oriflame offers diverse products and has a huge number of consultants and customers world-wide.

However, with all the reasons I have stated above, I do not recommend this business. Plus the starter kit cost is too high compared to other MLM and there are other better alternative that is way cheaper. Good luck and choose wisely.


  • Good Product Line
  • Learn Sales Skills


  • Somehow Expensive to Start With
  • Earnings is not Guaranteed

How Can You Earn Money Online?

It seems like you want to join in Oriflame business because you are hoping that it would help you earn extra income to pay for your bills and expenses. Unfortunately, this is not the best answer to your problem.

Actually, I was also in the same situation as yours before. I thought that MLM business will help me in my financial problems but I am wrong. At first, they introduced me on how the business works, but later on I realized that it just too exhausting especially that I needed to talk to a lot of people.

Now, your next question is, how can you really make money at home? My best suggestion would be through making your own online business. Basically it is a modern way of making money. And this will enable you to enjoy your working time at home. Basically, you will earn commissions from promoting other people’s products. You don’t own any product but you are making money from them.

Right now, I am on my first year in this program and I am already enjoying the fruits of my labor. So, I want to share my success with you.

    Thanks for sharing your personal opinion about the Oriflame products. It is good to know that they are of high quality. By the way, how about their business plan, what can you say about it?

charlsonv - May 16, 2017

So Oriflame is like AMWAY, the more people you recruit the more you can earn up to a certain number of levels down. Its good to know these additions to programs that offer more or less the same services so that one can choose the better ones. Mostly i believe joining MLMs is a personal choice; and since we all have different tastes or favorites when it comes to online business, its so good that you are giving us insights here.

    john rico - May 21, 2017

    Somehow Oriflame may be the same on Amway in terms of the business plan. But with regards with the products they offer, they are different. Nevertheless, MLM companies like Oriflame still offer some great earning potential but you have to be patient with regards on when you will get it.

I have worked on other MLM schemes in the past and what motivated me was the compensation plan. If oriflame doesn’t give this information then I don’t think I can work for them.

How do they expect people to trust them and work for them if they are not ready to disclose what a person will be paid for his efforts to market the company. Or do you think there is some catch in plan?

    john rico - May 15, 2017

    I think that there is no catch in the compensation plan of oriflame. But I think, the main reason why some mlm companies don’t provide relative information about it because they don’t want its members to assume the earnings that they will get. In this type of business, the earnings for person to person are different. So we can’t make an assumption on how much we will get.

Jaspreet - February 21, 2017

I am going to start with this business, so, I was wondering if it would be wise to invest in this. So no experience as yet to share but surely I look forward to a good going.

Chris - July 17, 2016

There are several ways to make money from home. I believe MLM, is one of those legit ways to do it. I do believe that some MLM companies are better than others. I also believe not everyone can be successful in MLM. While I don’t know much about Oriflame, I do believe it can be a good business for the right person. I have come to learn that success takes time and patience.

    john rico - July 26, 2016

    Yes, I agree with you. With any business that you want to start, you need to give time and patience. Most especially if you are just starting in it. MLM business seems legit but I believe that this is not for everyone. I think that this opportunity is for those who are willing to give much time in selling or even recruiting.

      Humna sheikh - March 29, 2017

        john rico - April 2, 2017

        Yes, oriflamme is a legit MLM business. Although they have limitations, they also have some good points. SO it still depends on a certain person if he/she wants to venture in this type of business.
