A little about Influenster: it is an online community where you join, write reviews on products, answer other reviewers’ questions, share your review blogs or social media posts on products, and earn points for doing so. After you earn certain points about these different items and badges, you become eligible to answer a questionnaire and see if you qualify to receive a VoxBox. What is a VoxBox? A VoxBox contains freebies from companies who have sought out Influenster’s community members to review their products and give honest review and facts about the product. You are able to do this at absolutely no charge. The one requirement: use the product and make sure you log in to your Influenster account and truthfully provide your experience with the product.
So, why are you not already a member?
When I first joined, I answered every quiz available and reviewed item after item that I had used before. I checked literally every day, but my Influenster Score was not going up. WHAT? This was impossible. So after about three weeks, I began to only review products every few days. Maybe three times a week. FINALLY, my score showed up. Now that is what I thought! Ha!
A few weeks ago, I received the long awaited email… I qualified to take a questionnaire to see if I would then be accepted to receive a potential VoxBox product. Next I received an email telling me that my sweet little VoxBox had shipped! Woohoo! I checked the tracking info every second day. (Hey, it’s the little things.)
My package arrived today, and although it doesn’t hold four bottles of perfumes and snazzy new face creams, I’m pretty excited to try it out and see what all of the fuss is about. Plus, it is free. Who doesn’t like free?
Here is what I received in my first VoxBox:
I realized as I read about this product, that I had recently seen a commercial for it on TV. Apparently every time we shave our underarms, 36% of what we remove is skin. Wow, ladies, did you know that? That was my “you learn something new every day” moment for today. (I will add, it also seemed a little gross to think about.) Plus, I never really gave THAT much thought about the skin of my armpit. Has anyone? If you have, I feel compelled to tell you that you can keep that information to yourself. Unless you’re a dermatologist, then I totally understand.
I plan to start using the product tomorrow morning. I will now for the first time pay serious attention to the skin of my armpits and see if I notice a difference. I will seriously give an honest review either way. (Check back for a later blog on that.)
If you would love to have the opportunity to review complimentary products and help companies improve their products based on honest opinions, join me at Influenster.
Good luck! And happy reviewing!
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are my own.
