Influenster and VoxBox

Getting free things is REALLY nice!  But, sometimes it's also nice to have a place you can go to share your opinions on products you love (or hate) and know that other people like you are there sharing their opinions, too.  That's what I've found at Influenster.

Now, to be honest, I was extremely skeptical when I first came across Influenster.  The commitment you make with them is heavily weighted in social media and the products they promised for review seemed a little to good to be true.  I'm here to tell you, signing up with Influenster was definitely worth it!  Here are the basics you'll need to make a decision about signing up to do reviews...


Starting off with Influenster, you'll want to "unlock" your badges.  This is a fancy hip way of saying, "Take surveys based on your interests in influences."  The more surveys you complete,or badges you unlock, the better your chances at being approved for products to review.  Examples of the badges I have unlocked include the Jetsetter (travel), Mother Bear (parenting), and Mosquito (outdoor adventure).  


Why put in the grunt work of unlocking badges?  So you can receive one of these...a VoxBox filled with new and exciting products for you to try.  When it comes, it's a tiny little box, but packed to overflowing with great free things!  In a year's time, I have received two boxes with items like Venus razors and Stash Tea.  The only thing you are required to do when receiving a VoxBox is complete a survey after using the products.  On top of that, it's all your choice, with options for additional rewards based on how much you share on social media.

Brand Challenges

This one I didn't understand until recently when I received one.  Basically, Influenster works to team up a specific brand with people to try out and share their product.  Now that I know, I'm just going to tell you that Brand Challenges are awesome!  My husband right now is trying out Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips-watch next week for the amazing results he's getting!
