Introduction: What is the Jeunesse Global company about?

Jeunesse is a multi level marketing company that claims to be the leader in anti-aging products. Here is what they say about themselves on their website:

Jeunesse is not the same old story of skin care and supplements. We are not the same old network model. Jeunesse is a global business that helps people reach their full potential in youthful looks, in healthy living, in embracing life


Jeunesse combines breakthrough sciences in a product system that enhances youth by working at the cellular level. By focusing on the health, longevity, and renewal of cells, we help people enjoy vibrant, youthful results that last.

When looking at any business opportunity I feel it is imperative to look at the products involved to see whether this opportunity is worthwhile or not, especially when looking at a multi level marketing opportunity. The quality of the product is important, but it is also very important to look at whether the product pricing is good value or not.

A good example of this is the Amway MLM opportunity… yes the products they sell are great in the way that they sell everyday goods so every person you come across is a potential customer Realistically nobody will really be purchasing those products at those prices… ever!

What is the Jeunesse opportunity

So once again we will be looking at Jeunesse as a whole and not just the business opportunity side, we want to have a good look at the products too and see if there is a market there.

What products does Jenesse sell?

Jeunesse Reserve

This is the exact description for this product on their website:

This delicious and nutritious gel will infuse your body with youthful vitality and a feeling of overall good health. RESERVE’S superstar ingredient, resveratrol, is accompanied by a supporting cast of other powerful ingredients like açai, pomegranate, blueberry, dark sweet cherry, aloe vera, grapeseed, and green tea. This incredible supplement will jump-start your day.

Jeunesse reserve

So for just R1914.52 (approximately $120) per month you can have this amazing nutrition supplement! Ok so this must really work miracles for me at this price… oh please note that it states on their website that these statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug administration.

Let’s have a look quickly at their superstar ingredient, Resveratrol

According to Wikipedia there is “limited evidence of health effects in humans”.

According to WebMD there is thought to be some benefits to Resveratrol however none of this can be confirmed because of the limited studies done on humans. Resveratrol is not regulated by the FDA so you don’t really know what you are getting anyway, or in what doses. The dosages in most supplements are low (around 250 to 500 milligrams) and the doses used in animal studies that did show some effect was about 2000 milligrams daily.

Jeunesse Luminesce Cellular Rejuventation Serum

Jeunesse instantly ageless sachetsAnd of course this product range wouldn’t be complete without this product for R1134.76 (approximately $71)!

Jeunesse really does claim that their products work miracles, check out this video which shows the Instantly Ageless product working.

If you want to check out more of these videos just have a look on Youtube, there are loads of them available. Watch the wrinkles and eye bags just disappear…

Me, well I am still a skeptic even after seeing the videos, I don’t believe in a miracle cure for wrinkles. I never will either.

Through research I could see that there are more products on offer, but from my country this is all I could access on their website so go and have a look what else there is if you like.

Jeunesse Product Complaints

So that is the miracle video for the Jeunesse products, now what about the Jeunesse product complaints?

According to this Amazon review on the ….. the product did not work for her and she claims there was a Jeunesse study done and the products do not work on 20% of the people that try them!

Jeunesse product complaints

And here are some more complaints about Jeunesse products on Amazon. The point that the last person brings up about postive reviews for Jeunesse products being written by Jeunesse distributors is thought provoking isn’t it? There were 61 reviews on this product on Amazon, 18 were critical…. were the positive ones written by Jeunesse distributors?

And even if they weren’t it still means that over 30% of the reviews were complaints! Not exactly good for such pricey products is it?

Complaints about Jeunesse products

Do a little research into the complaints about Jeunesse products and you will find plenty of reading material to keep you busy.

The cost for purchasing each of these products monthly will total up to approximately $500 per month. Please check the correct pricing your side as I could only access the pricing in my currency!

My personal opinion is if you want to look younger so badly why not save $500 for the next 2 years or so and go and have a face lift? That will keep you looking young for a good while yet!

Or perhaps spend some money on a course on self acceptance? You will save thousands (and probably be a happier person)!

Ok so the products look… well expensive and like they probably don’t work that great. Not a great start for selling these products, but hey maybe you can overlook that and push them onto some rich ladies that are desperate to look young again right?

The Jeunesse Compensation Plan

So now that we know all about the products lets look at how you can make some money with Jeunesse. There are 6 different ways to earn with Jeunesse (listed below).

Retail Profit

New First Order Bonus

Team Commission

Leadership Matching Bonus

Customer Acquisition Incentive

Leadership Bonus Pool

Keep in mind when watching the video that there is a huge difference between what is possible and what is typical! This is a big problem with MLM companies, they seem to go into a fantasy world when they say how much you can earn. Yes that is possible, but will it happen for you? Most likely not!

How much does it cost to join Jeunesse as a distributor?

The initial registration fee is $49.95 and then it is $85/ month thereafter.

Is Jeunesse a scam?

Well I consider all MLM’s to be borderline scams! But no, the answer is that Jeunesse is not a scam. They are a well known and well respected MLM company that has been going since 2009. Just because I don’t think it is a great opportunity doesn’t mean I can just slap a scam label on it.

Pros and Cons for Jeunesse


  • Anti-aging products are in great demand and always will be
  • They are a well established company



  • Products are overpriced
  • You have to purchase products in order to sell them, not a good sign!
  • The membership fee of $85 a month is very high
  • Lots of complaints about the products online
  • MLM business model which is not suitable for most people!

My Verdict for Jeunesse

This is a mixed verdict for me, my personal opinion is that this opportunity really sucks. My reasons for saying this are:

  • The product has too many complaints
  • I can’t believe in the product, therefore I personally can’t sell it!
  • It is just too expensive, I can’t see how anyone can reasonably be expected to pay these prices
  • $85 a month to be a member? I don’t believe in paying to be allowed to sell a product.
  • I don’t believe in having to purchase products to be allowed to sell them!
  • I hate MLM, the focus is NOT on the product it is on recruiting people!

So this would never work for ME, but it might just for you.

Anti-aging products is a great industry to be in, there will always be a demand for this type of product. So if you like MLM and you are good at it, then this might be a great opportunity for you to go for!

  1. These mlm companies always tend to overcharge their products in order to make money. It is just ridiculous to pay that much for a product that you can buy at your local store.

    Most people will not buy the products so this makes it harder to get referrals to the company.

    • Hi Viljoen

      Yes that is my biggest gripe with MLM, because they have to pay everyone in the down-line they charge ridiculous prices. This means nobody can sell the products and instead try and recruit people into the business model to try and earn from them… this just makes it into a pyramid scheme instead of a product based business.

  2. It is crystal clear that a serious and honorable MLM should involved helping people before making profits on them.
    A 500 bucks per months sound a blasphemy to me, especially if i think about a old lady living close to me that for 80 years ONLY used olive oil on her and she has the same skin as my baby daughter buttocks!
    I agree with you about that if is the will to spend so much money then it would be, in my opinion, more valuable to invest in accepting that Human being DO age.
    Very nice post.
    Thank you, i am sure it will warn many people.

    • Hi Andrea
      I am glad you enjoyed the review :) I really think this aging this is more to do with acceptance than lotions and potions! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi Lynn,
    I tried of purchasing this product from one of my friends and I honestly didn’t like it. The cream didn’t do anything more to my skin than any other product I used before for lower price.
    My friend joined the program, but it was difficult for her as she couldn’t sell the products she bought before due to big prices and she decided to give up on them.
    Did you try any Jeunesse product yourself?
    and thanks for bringing this to our attention and make more people aware of them.

    • Hi Niki

      Thanks for sharing your experience with us!

      Nope, I have never personally tried their products. I based this review on research! I have a friend that tried these products and she was very disappointed, that is how I became aware of them.

  4. I shudder each time I see those three letters together… MLM /shudder..

    Any who, as you point out the prices for those items do seem very high and if they were truly miracle workers then I think the reviews would be much better. I would not doubt that most of the positive reviews come from the distributors.

    Glad I came across this first before I was led astray by their marketing videos. Thanks for the perspective.

    • Hi James
      Happy to help… another MLM shudderer lol. I feel exactly the same way and honestly try and keep my reviews objective but I can’t see how any MLM opportunity can work out well. Thanks for visiting.

  5. Hi Lynne, a very witty review for sure!! Seeing the cost at the top of the page would have sent me running in the opposite direction. Who in their right mind would spend that kind of money? You’re hilarious, but absolutely right when you recommend saving the money and getting a facelift. I take very good care of my skin, always have and I do use good skincare lines. Even though they cost more than something you would find in the drugstore, it’s not costing me hundreds every month, they work well and are worth every penny. I’ll be sticking with what I have, but thanks for letting us know.

    • Hi Hindy
      It is a pleasure and I am glad you enjoyed the review. It is just sad that maybe people will get caught by this in their belief that there could be a miracle cure for wrinkles.. I mean we are going to get old and we are going to get wrinkly. It is part of life!

  6. MLMs always worry me a little. They seem to similar to Pyramid Schemes for me to believe right away. This one doesn’t seem like a Pyramid Scheme, but it does seem way too pricey. I feel like you would end up with a lot of product on your hands that you couldn’t get rid of, leaving you 600 dollars in the hole. Thanks for the write up. Very helpful.

    • Hi Dallin

      Very good point! And with that being said, most MLM’s only sell directly through their distributors. They are usually not allowed to sell on Amazon for example. So this opens the question of why there are so many Jeunesse products being sold on Amazon and for less than the normal retail price! This also came up in my research with Amway.

      It certainly appears that these are distributors that have not been able to make sales and then attempt to flog their stock even for much less than they paid just to try and get some of their investment back. It really is sad!

  7. Hey Lynne

    You have done a brilliant job reviewing Jeunesse. I have read all the pro’s and Con’s and you know what, I will not use it at all nor promote it.
    Very informative review.

    Thank you.

  8. Even if these products were highly effective, you could get similar products elsewhere for 10x cheaper. On top of paying $85 per month just to sell the products. It seems like this company is in it for the money first and to actually help people second. Thanks for shedding light on this company!

    • Hi Phillip

      Exactly, this is not what I would call a great opportunity. You will struggle to sell anything at all with Jeunesse!

  9. Lynne,
    IT looks like this will cost too much to get into without the benefit of knowing if you will ever make anything from it. The only good thing about it is if someone really gets hooked on this product, you could make a good amount of money. MLM’s make you sell to people in too many layers to make any real money.

    • Hi John
      Yes I agree with you there, but from what I have read online about the Jeunesse products is that they are a complete waste of money and there is nothing special about them at all! Pity though, it would be lovely to have a miracle cream that just removed all my wrinkles!
