Jafra is a Direct Selling Company, otherwise known more frequently as Network Marketing. Founded in Malibu, California over 50 years ago, this internationally known company operates using the same business model as familiar cosmetics brands like Mary Kay and Avon, offering skin care and beauty products for women to sell as a home based businesses. Jafra Dynamics is the skin care line that Jafra sells.

Product Details

There are four different lines of skin care produced by Jafra. Each line is formulated to address different types of skin. There is the Balance Line for combination skin, the Control line for oily skin, the Calming line for sensitive skin, and the Hydration line for Mature or Dry skin. For our purposes we will focus in on the Hydration line.

The products in the Jafra Hydration line are:

  • Hydrating Cream Cleanser.
  • Hydrating Toner.
  • Hydrating Moisture Replenishing Cream SPF 15.
  • Hydrating Night Cream.

Some of the ingredients in these products are things such as Shea Butter, avocado butter, oat proteins, and natural cleansing oils. The products also contain the blends specific to the Jafra name, which are the Intellisheild and Hydrasmart complexes. Unfortunately, ingredient lists are not available for these complexes.

The Good

  • Jafra is well known and has been around for a long time. Staying power is important for building a brand.
  • The website is user friendly. There are many different video selections you can make that allow you to hear about the products and the business without having to squint reading small print.
  • The hydration line of products is meant to be a 3-step program, which is easy for most women to keep up with on a daily basis.

The Bad

  • There is a negative connotation that can be associated with Network Marketing that most people are not interested in. Many would like to pay for their products and move along, without having to hear about the business itself or feeling awkwardly pressured into buying products from a friend or business associate.
  • There is a lot of talk about cutting-edge technology and innovative research, but no one goes on to explain where the research is taking place and who is doing the research itself.
  • The website does not offer a full list of ingredients. This can be problematic for the consumer that needs to have all of that information disclosed due to allergies or adverse reactions to their skin.
  • It is unclear what kind of money-back guarantee is in place with Jafra’s products.

The Bottom Line

Jafra is comparable to heavy hitting cosmetic companies like Avon and Mary Kay. Well known, but nothing new. The products are probably a good bet for the budget minded woman and the daily routine is simple enough to stick with. Jafra would benefit from offering more clinical research and a list of the full ingredients in their products. We’ve all heard about active botanicals and special blends from far off places, but the informed consumer wants to see the facts and exactly what they are putting on their face.

Rejuval Skin Bottle

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2015: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. Rejuval Skin contains the advanced scientifically proven ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the scientific studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Rejuval Skin is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Rejuval Skin Go


(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go

30 Comments/Questions/Answers to Jafra

    Im Jafra customer. If the customer has questions on what is it they are placing on their faces, all they have to do is just ask their consultant. They would be more than happy to explain what is it that the product contains.

  • 2


    Thank you, Aileen! You are right! That goes along with answers to the money back guarantee. Just ask! Jafra created this business with high quality products so that women could stay at home with there kids. There wouldn’t be much of a business, if everyone could just order off the interenet. That’s why we do parties. It’s more fun and personal anyway. But the most important thing we stress is NOT to pressure anyone to purchase anything! So, I don’t know what consultant you had, or where PL got this info, but that is certainly not true.
    I hope that in the future, the writers of this article have a MUCH better experience with the Jafra products, and more importantly, with any Jafra consultants! I, for one, would LOVE to answer any questions. :)

    Hi, Jafra is not Botanical its Ayurvedic- focus on harmony and a bodily balenced system. Moreover I’m afraid its not at all old news, in fact you forgot to mentioned Jafra’s key Product line- ROYAL JELLY which is used to maintain a youthful appearance by working directly with your skin’s cells in oder to keep them behaving younger! Avon or Mary Kay does not offer Such unique product line, nor do they offer an amazing infant care line, adolesence skin care line , and Man skin care line all which JAFRA DOES Offer and MORE! There’re plenty new school in Jafra, Just Find out More, start by trying it out! xoxox

    Guinot is essentially a skin care line that was developed with spa treatments as a model. These products are focused on anti-aging and youthful radiance. Although they offer a considerable amount of skin treatments for the face and body, their official website is lacking. Potential customers will not only have trouble acquiring the products without going to the spa anyway, but they can’t even see what sort of prices they’re sold for in these “finer” salons and spas. Another downfall of this website is the fact that it lacks ingredient lists and testimonials. There is really nothing for consumers to go on other than the notion that Guinot has been in the business for over 40 years. In the end, it may be wise to choose a skin care regimen that offers more information and a money-back guarantee.

    I tried selling AVON. Within the first 5 months of doing it, I was the 5th TOP seller in our district. I could NEVER make any $$ because I had to invest every penny I might have made, into selling tools. It ended up costing me more than $1000. My family NEEDS extra income, not to have something COST US!! How is Jafra (by the way, I have never herd of the company before!!) any different?

  • 6

    AVON does in fact offer an anti-aging line called Anew which is in itself broken down into families by skin needs. They have 4 families plus a Clinical version and ALL are cheaper than the Royal Jelly treatment. Plus they actually show you the years of research, testing, and ingredients are listed on the back of each item.

    why am i charged more when i ordered recently ,i try to make contact but was denied instantly?

    Jafra has worked on the wrinkles around my eyes like nothing I’ve ever tried before. And I’ve tried products which are far more expensive. Also, they have a 30 day money back guarantee, and are very forthcoming about it, so you should correct your mistake in this review.

    I recently used the •Hydrating Moisture Replenishing Cream SPF 15 and it has burned my face. It has been 6 days and it is still red. I have never had a problem before, and i use your moisturizing cream nightly. Did they change something on the cream? I am very upset….

    I have been a JAFRA Consultant for 5 months now and love their products and how the company offers incentives but is not in your face to sell/recruit.
    Also, like Laura, reader 3 said, I was with Avon for 4+ years and I never made much profit because you are constantly having to purchase brochures etc.
    JAFRA’s seasonal brochures are good for 60 days and the main brochure with complete product line is good for a year! And they are very affordable.
    While JAFRA is working on implementing a new e-commerece system, overall I am thrilled to be a part of the JAFRA family and I’m not alone.
    Most consultants stay with JAFRA for decades, not months so I know I’ve made a great career decision and I feel proud to offer JAFRA products. Plus I want to build a team with JAFRA, something I never even considered with Avon.

    I hope this helps potential customers and/or those interested in joining a direct sales company make an educated choice.

    Please feel free to contact me if I can be of any assistance!

    I have been a Jafra Consultant for 32 years and know the product quality is much higher than others. I have tried others periodically and have been allergic, getting itchy blotches. I am happy with the texture and look of my skin using Jafra and using Royal Jelly for 33 years now. No one ever guesses my age. These products speak for themselves. This is what made me decide to become a consultant way back in 1981. I will be a Jafra Consultant till I am 90 or pass away, whichever comes first.

    I’m in my 70s and use JAFRA daily. My skin looks so soft and smooth because it is. No alergic reactions. Excellent products reasonably priced.

    I have tried to submit information to a consultant but it keeps telling me the “code” is incorrect! I was a Jafra Consultant 30 years ago but list track of them when I had to quit to go to work full time. I live in Colorado and would like a consultant close by to contact me.

    Hi I was recently introduce to jafra products by a consultant. She showed me the products for the face to help with aging. I asked for samples to try for a week or two to see if the products really work before purchasing. I am one of the millions of women that can’t really afford to purchase the product if it doesn’t work for me. She said she’s been using jafra for years and yes her skin was soft and she was pretty but she was young. My question is does jafra have samples of the beauty products or a trial package that I can afford before I buy at full price. If someone can help me with this I would really appreciate.

  • 21


    I would like to know why I never received a response back regarding your products in a trial package. Before I purchased for the full price I would really like to try your products. Thank you.

  • 22


    I want to be a Jafra consultant and start as business.
    Need information on how to proceed?

    I’m highly interested to selling Jafra make up and would like to know more about the foundations and how well they cover.

    i bought 2 containers of the baby skin cream, well i thought i was getting the same thing i got before, but my daughterinlaw and daughter w/ the new baby said, mom we can hardly get this stuff out of the tube??? i had no idea, it’s been over 2 months since i purchased it, from a director no less, i don’t know where she obtained it, i can’t find her again online don’t remember her name. this is what i do not like about this thing, i think people buy products that might sell fast and stock up, it sits on their shelf and then they sell it, there is no exp date, therefore you never know do you, now i have to find a way to track her down, obviously i can’t even exchange because it’s been 60 days, my relatives thought it was supposed to be that way, and i looked and it isn’t, that’s why nothing was said to me, well all i know is i spent close to 40 dollars which included tax and probably shipping and they’ll never use it again, she’s never called me, to see if i liked it, do i want more product and she’s been doing this she had said about 18 yrs, i wish i could remember i guess i’ll have to use my minutes and try to track her down by calling the company and see if she knew these containers were old, so embarrassing

    Love Jafra!

  • 27


    I used the day moisturizer (used to be called Royal Moisture Creme) for 40 years. They took it out of the jar and put it into a little tube. Supposed to be the same amount but looks half the size, and there is waste when tube gets low. Is there any chance they will correct this, put it back in the jar?

    Judy W.

    I use Jafra, and sell a small amount. I like most of the products but have been frustrated by the overuse of fragrances at times. I gave gifts of baby products only to have the parents mention they were too fragrant for their little one. Now the Balancing line has somehow changed some of their fragrances – I have to use the “Soothing” instead, when the Balancing is better for my skin type…. Its hard to increase business with these sorts of issues popping up.

    About 20 year’s ago I was a Jafra Consultant but they discontinued it in Canada. Would you please let me know if It is back again. I love the products, I recently found a bottle of Jafra Day Lotion & Jafra Rediscover Alpha Hydroxy Complex,I didn’t know I had.

    I have used Jafra for nearly 40 years. My skin is smooth, soft and nearly wrinkle free. I am nearly 60 years old, and I look younger than my sibling 5 years younger. All the negative comments are Heck, I look younger than my nieces. Alot of comments are simply not true. As a former Mary Kay consultant, I can honestly say, the quality and results of Jafra skin care far exceeds it’s competitors. The natural and organic ingredients, that are used today, especially constant changing formulas and NEW organic ingredients used in certain lines, are completely different than 40 years ago. Jafra is cutting edge and their products pass through laboratory testing approved by dermatologists, plastic surgeons and estheticians before they hit the market. I have a lot of allergies, and Jafra is the least troublesome of any product I have used. I have been a Jafra consultant for 29 years, and am proud of that. No where else can I get the best anti-aging products for the money. Most cost 2-3 times more and are not as effective. The Royal Jelly Milk Balm is the main product that Jafra is centered around. Many other Jafra products have Royal Jelly also and it is patented. All the products are 100 % guaranteed. You can find a consultant online , just go to the website Jafra.com. Ingredient lists and research testing information is also available on their website. It has never been a secret. Jafra and their consultants are proud of the products they use and sell. There are no big agendas, the product sells itself. There are no requirements and no pressures, and no territorial sales. I have never sold the product to anyone that did not LOVE the product and once they switched to Jafra they never switched back to any other company. I can afford to purchase any product I want, and I wouldn’t change for anything. One last thing…I went through Chemo a couple of years ago. I diligently put layers and layers of different anti-aging and hydrating moisturizers on my face daily, as my skin was SO dry. When it was all over, I was complimented that I looked 10 years younger than I did before the chemo. The chemo itself nearly killed me. Amen
