Have you guys ever heard of Influenster? Well, it's a community of people, just like you (maybe more than you think) who take time to share their experience with products, brands, and thing that they love.
"Basically, Influenster is a place for culture junkies to come together and share their unique opinions of products and experiences. Active members of Influenster get exclusive access to deals, promotions, and swag from brands that thrive off the input (the good, the bad, and the ugly -- they just want to know what's up)."They have several different categories including; Eco, Gamer, Urbanite, Pop Culture, Beauty, Catnip, Blushing Bride, and even one for mothers. That's only a few. There's usually something there for everyone.
But what to do with these badges? With the badges you can get discounts, sales, and even a VoxBox or two! That's what's pictured above, a VoxBox. Now, the boxes are completely free, and are themed. When you qualify for one (usually means you have a badge already), you fill out a survey, and wait. They send you an e-mail if you qualify. The point of these boxes is to try the products out, and fill out surveys about them! Super simple.
This is my first box, and I must say that I am incredibly pleased with it. Only one item I cans see myself not using, and that is the lashes. But, I will still try them out.
Below, is what I received!
Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin ($7.29)
It helps with updos. I'm extremely excited about this.
Kiss Ever Pro Lashes Starter Kit ($5.99)
Comes with eyelashes (duh), adhesive, and applicator. Claims a 24-hour hold (no way I would wear them that long) with the latex-free glue.
Bath & Body Works Mini Candle ($3.50)
Pumpkin Cupcake. Also came with a coupon for a $10.00 3-wick candle.
NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact ($4.99)
Comes with four colors, a primer, and an illuminator.
Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Frizz Control Hair Cream ($6.00 for a full sized 4oz bottle)
"..fights out of control hair and reduces styling time.."
So, what do you think of Influenster? It's great for bloggers of all kinds. Wonderful way to dip your toes into reviewing for companies, and a great way to learn about new products! No, I am not being paid or compensated for talking about, if you were wondering. =D
