I recently sign aboard with a website called Influenster. Haven't heard of this site before? They offer opportunities for consumers to review products currently on the market or getting ready to go to market.
You do have to be chosen to receive a box and I'm not really sure if there is a limit on how many boxes you can receive. However, I did receive a box pretty quickly after taking a handful of surveys on their website on different industries that I'm interested in.
I was uber excited to receive this box. Overall, the products were so-so. Out of the six products I received, I will most like be using three of them or even thinking about going out and re-purchasing those three.
The theme of the box is "Back to School". Included were full size products of the following:
Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-On Manicure
I will not be using or even trying these. I might be more open to them if they were in a solid color or even a pretty pattern. However, the pattern is pretty tacky looking. Maybe for a vacation to the beach, even that would be pushing it. Just my personal opinion.
Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fuchsia
I have tried the NYC brand before and have always been happy with the results of the products, however this color is just not flattering on me. It reminds me the color of Lolli-tint by Benefit. It would actually look nice on the cheeks. It does have a nice smell of bubblegum. At age 30, I don't think it's something I could pull off. I might look into other colors that NYC has to offer.
Pilot Acroball Purewhite
I use pens on a daily basis. I like how it is a little larger than a stick pen and has a nice grip. I have the starting stages of carpal tunnel, so I'm going to test it out and see how tight I grip the pen. It might actually help. The pen always came with a $1.50 coupon that I will be taking advantage of! 1st product of the box that I will get use out of!
Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
I received the shade-Light Ivory, which is perfect for me. I can't wait to try this product. I like a natural looking face and I feel that matte will do this, with using a beauty blender as an applicator. Very happy about this product.
Playtex Sport Fresh Balance
Not much to say about this, other than I will get use out of these. It's a full size box, which is fantastic. the third and final product of the box that I will be using.
Red Rose Real Tea Premium Water Enchancer
I recently gotten into tea, however not a fan of black tea. Won't even be trying this product. Hoping I can find someone to give it to. This also came with a $1.00 off coupon.
This was a great opportunity to try new products or products I typically wouldn't purchase myself or at least the brands of the products.
Looking forward to getting more boxes by Influenster! Don't forget to sign up on their website for a chance to review products!
*I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from influenster.
