Skinny Body Care has only had 2 main items until recently with its addition of 3 more products. All of the products are used for weight loss management and anti-aging creams. All of the products are said to be all natural.
Skinny Fiber is the company’s main weight loss product. It is an appetite suppressant that cleanses the toxins from your body, contains fat blockers and supports healthy digestion. One bottle contains 120 capsules and is a months supply.
Skinny Body Max is one of the new items on the menu. It is for both men and women. The product provides weight management, contains antioxidants and supports a healthy metabolism. You receive a months supply of 120 capsules in each bottle.
HiBurn8 is another new item on the list. It is also a weight loss supplement in a liquid form. It is full of vitamins and minerals, as well as, natural sleep enhancers. This product is designed to help you lose weight while getting a good nights rest.
The next two products are skin care products. Ageless Anti-aging Serum is used to give your skin some firmness, reduces any blemishes and deep pores, minimize any skin imperfections, as well as, reduces stretch marks, spots and scars. Instant Youth is an Anti-aging cream used to eliminate wrinkles and deep lines. It is supposed to work for up to 6-8 hours for every fresh application and is said to correct any of the skins imperfections with continuous use.
All of the products currently sell for the same price of $59.95 per container. They all come with the same purchase discount offers. One bottle is $59.95 plus shipping, when you buy 2 you at $119.85 you will get one free and the ultimate buy 3 get 3 free deal for $179.70 plus shipping. Customers may not receive more than 6 bottles per purchase. Distributors only may purchase in bulk, they can buy 10 bottles of product for $279.95 or 20 bottles for $499.95
The opportunity for Independent Distributors with Skinny Body Care is similar to many of the other MLM companies out there today. The compensation paid out is based on the Business Volume of each individual product. There is no retail commission or compensation.
The Fast Start Enroller Bonus offers distributors 40% commission on every preferred customers very first order and then an additional 10% for every customer enrolled as a 1st level. The Fast Start Commission allows you to earn up to 6 levels of commission. After your customers first initial order you may then begin receiving a residual commission income.
The company offers the Binary Match Bonus and Achievement Rank bonuses as well. The Infinity Match Bonus allows distributors to receive a bonus up to 7 generations. There is one bonus added for each rank and leg advancement. The highest rank that can be achieved is the Royal Crown Diamond.
Skinny Body Care has went over the 5 year business bump, which is usually a positive sign of success. The products are said to contain only natural ingredients and that is a plus as more and more people are in search of natural products that are free of chemicals.
There is some opportunity for independent distributors to earn an income and excel in rank. There are 7 different ways to earn through commissions and bonuses. The higher in rank a distributor goes the better deals they are offered on products.
The official website may be well written and easy to navigate but it lacks any in depth information. There is nothing on the founder, the year it was founded, whether or not there is actual scientific backing or any FDA approvals. For a person considering becoming an independent distributor there is nothing there about the sign-up fees, the product pricing or requirements. The dietary supplements reveal how many capsules are in each bottle but the aging cream and serum have zero information about the size or weight.
Skinny Body Care currently has an F rating with the Better Business Bureau for the length of time the company has been running and the amount of customer complaints and reviews, nor is the company accredited. The official website states it won an award for the best skin product in 2012 but there is no information on that whatsoever.
The company has faced several negative reviews from customers and distributors as well. The F rating has the company sitting with the lowest of standards when it comes to customer service. There is also far too much general information lacking on the website, especially for being in business for the length of time that they have been.
There, of course, is some opportunity for distributors to generate an income but with the product prices, monthly fees and the fact that they use the power line technique there may not be too much to look forward to. The power line or recruiting method is known to many in the MLM industry to be one of the more difficult methods around.
