I bet you have heard of people getting free products from brands to test out and give them feedback on. I also bet you have been searching and searching for ways to get free products as well because who doesn’t love free things. Especially when it is things like free makeup and hair products.
Well, you are in luck! I plan to tell you how I get free products to test out from some big brands and all from one single place too. It is a site called Influenster, so let’s get to it.
What is Influenster?
Influenster is a site that brings brands and consumers together to test products and write reviews. Basically, Influenster is a bridge between brands that want to know what their consumers think of their products and consumers that would love to try out new products for free and give them their feedback.
The reason brands give out free products is to find out what their consumers think about that product, increase the product’s credibility, and spread the word about their product by people referring others to try it out.
How does it work?
Once you register for the site you have to put in details about your skin type, your hair, if you have pets, etc. this way when they send out products they can send it to people who can use them. Basically, so they don’t send you dry skin products when you have oily skin only.
After the questions about yourself, they will ask you to review products that you already have in your own home. It can be anything. And I mean anything. If you want to review shampoo then you can. If you want to review video games, you are good to go. If you want to review food products, go right ahead. Toiletries, alcohol, ramen, baby products, skin care, makeup, etc. All of them can be reviewed.
The more you review the better chances you can get free products. The free products are given out in what is called a voxbox.
You also get badges for completing certain tasks. When you complete the regular badges it gives you more credit and higher chances of getting free products. Some badges though are from voxboxes and actually enter you into a give away of the brand you got the badge from.
What is a voxbox?
A voxbox is a box full of certain free products that go out to Influensters users to test out. They come in different themes, which means different products, but all the boxes that are under the same theme get the same products to test out.
Each box has a handful of products to test out (which you get to keep for free!) and once you test them out you just write a review. Each product comes with a brand badge on the Influenster website with tasks to complete. When you write a review and complete the tasks for each product you get entered into that brand’s giveaway for more products.
Only the people who go that exact voxbox can be entered into the giveaway.
How does one get a voxbox?
The best way to get a voxbox is to review the products in your house. Though you shouldn’t do all of them at once. Space out your reviews and like most things staying consistent can help you out. A review a day or a few a week or so can truly help you out.
And make sure that your reviews aren’t lame. Make them detailed so that people actually get your full and TRUE opinion of the products.
Now once you get a voxbox, make sure to complete the tasks in a timely manner. Also, try to complete as many of the badges for the voxbox you got as well. Because all of these factors go into you getting another voxbox later.
My experience with a voxbox
When I got a voxbox I was actually pretty pleased with a few of the products. Some of the products I received didn’t work for me specifically, but I made sure to review all the products honestly.
The products I will continue to use and probably buy in the future made a wonderful addition to my daily routine. Whereas the ones I didn’t like or won’t use I gave to someone who might like it so it wouldn’t go to waste.
