Is this another MLM scam? In this Thrive Le-Vel review I want to show you everything you need to know about yet another multilevel marketing business that I’m sure you are more than just curious about.
Whether you were invited from one of your “friends” on Facebook or you got introduced to it from someone you actually know, I’m sure you know there’s always a hidden agenda.
From the business all the way down to the products, this review will guide you in the right direction.
I am not affiliated with this company so you can expect nothing but useful information and an honest opinion from someone looking in.
Owners: Jason Camper & Paul Gravette
Price: $100 (starting)
Overall Rating: 1.9/5 stars
Thrive found at le-vel.com is a multilevel marketing business that promotes products from the health and wellness niche.
Its was founded by Jason Camper and Paul Gravette who shared the same vision of creating a premium product that catered to an audience looking to live a premium lifestyle.
The company uses cloud technology so a lot of the physical work is at a minimum level which allows for more growth by putting money into more important places.
The Actual Products
The products are of course in the health and wellness category and I thought it would be similar to Mealaleuca, but it’s actually completely different.
Rather than having a bunch of different organic type products, you have a daily routine type of system that is supposed to improve physical and mental levels of your body.
It is an 8 week process that can differ slightly from person to person depending on your goal within an 8 week period.
Being that I am not as active as I was when I was in the army I was actually in the hunt for a product that can support my new lifestyle so I actually looked into different ones, with this being one of them.
First, I tried Kyani and I thought it would actually do something, but it did absolutely nothing for me.
After that I kinda gave up until I came across this.
This is also a reason for doing such extensive research on Thrive before committing to purchasing another product that claims to do so much.
I will be updating this review on my 8 week experience, so let’s give it some time.
It’s really hard to put the right price on a product especially when you’re trying to split money in many different ways.
You can get signed up for free, but of course that won’t do you any good.
There are 4 products that you can expect from Thrive:
- Thrive M (men)
- Thrive W (women
- Thrive MW (premium lifestyle mix)
- Thrive Premium Lifestlye DFT (derma fusion technology)
These products can be purchased in different packages, which start at $100/month and go as high as $300/month.
The $100 deal is the lifestyle pack which comes with a 4 week supply but doesn’t come with the nice little skin (DFT) product.
The Tone Pack would cost you $140 and it comes with the 28 day packs plus the option to add on other products like the DFT.
The couples pack is of course a his and hers type deal which comes with a 28 day supply for a man and a woman and will cost you $200.
There are 3 other packages which is a bump up on price, but gives you the DFT.
Pretty simple and nothing too complicated, right?
The Compensation Plan
Refer 2 and yours is free.
This is usually the motto for most MLMs and this just means that you can have your Thrive package paid for if you get two paying members to join under you.
I used to think this was what made or broke a company when I knew nothing about affiliate marketing but that’s not the case these days.
Along with the refer 2 promo, there has to be a way to make money through “multiple levels” or this would not be considered multilevel marketing.
This is also where the recruiting will take place and allow you to gain commissions several levels outside of your personal recruits.
Do keep in mind that once you opt to become a promotor of Thrive you can’t go back to being a regular old customer.
Do the Products Work?
Just like any product out there it’s going to have a solid impact while it can have no affect on others.
Personally, I think the products are fairly decent and although it might not be the best thing since sliced bread, it is something that you can use to promote a business opportunity.
Unlike these cash gifting scams that have no product, I think these guys have put more than enough effort to help you and them grow.
Whether it’s a placebo or not, everyone is different and you can’t go off of one person’s results.
I’m sure you’ll have Thrive members praise it like it’s the best thing ever and then you’ll have anti-MLMers say the complete opposite.
That’s the nature of the business and it will never change.
No company has a completely clean reputation even if they want it to be.
This doesn’t necessarily mean the overall company is bad especially if the owners are actually trying to do something to better other people’s lives and not take your money and run like others.
There’s actual products for crying out loud, lol.
Now I have heard that the customer service is pretty bad, but that is also something that is hard to come across these days, so I’m sure we’re all used to it.
Some people have reported being jittery from the products, while others have said that it did absolutely nothing.
Typical complaints that come with most MLMs, so you’ll really have to try it for yourself since we are all different, right?

At a Glance
Price: $100 (starting)
Overall Rating: MLM will always be about recruiting and the products will usually be 2nd runner up. It is not for everyone, so if recruiting people is something you can do then this might before you.
Is Thrive a Scam?
Thrive is definitely not a scam although it operates like a typical pyramid scheme would.
There is an actual product and there is somewhat of an opportunity to make some extra money on the side so it’s really hard to even go the route of this being a scam.
Just because this might not be for you doesn’t mean it isn’t for someone else.
MLM is not for me (click here to find out why), but I’m not going to bash this thing like it’s completely worthless because it’s not.
I don’t find these products to be helpful to me and my family but that’s exactly how it was when I tried Kyani and a couple of other products like this.
I hoped it did something, but that didn’t happen.
What I Really Think
Sure we all want the best products on the market but it’s quite the challenge.
I think the Le-vel Thrive products are fair and surprisingly I like the way they do business.
MLM will never beat affiliate marketing but that doesn’t mean MLM wont’ work either.
Whether you’re into the products or not you still need to be ready to promote your business or I think it’s really a waste of time.
This is not a bad business in my opinion.
Thanks for reading my Thrive Le-vel review and hopefully I have given you a better picture of what you will be getting yourself into before you join something you might end up regretting.
