Influenster - Spring Fever VoxBox

Question?  Who doesn't love free stuff? 

Influenster is not a monthly subscription service and you don't/can't pay to get boxes from them.  The way it works is you sign up for free on their website and unlock "badges". There are many badges you can unlock depending on your hobbies, lifestyle, where you live, social networking etc.  When the company has a box of items they want tested and reviewed they pick from the Influensters registered and send them goodies.  Once you get the items you are expected to try them out, review them, tell your friends etc.  Doing all of that will ensure that you will remain on the list of influensters that get boxes.  The whole point of Influenster is to get the word out about the products and what better way than word of mouth.  And yes all of this is free, you don't pay to sign up, you don't pay to get a box and you don't pay for anything period.  They send out several boxes a year with different themes and not everyone gets all the boxes.  The last box I received was in July of 2012.  

After you receive your box of goodies you will receive emails from Influenster telling you about brand challenges and ways to earn more badges.  The more badges you earn the more likely you are to receive a future box.  Basically you get badges for talking about the product and giving your opinion. 

Free Treasures!

Spring Fever VoxBox with approximate retail price.

Secret Outlast Clear Gel Antiperspirant/Deodorant. Value = $4.59 - I couldn't use this because I'm allergic to aluminum in deodorants but I'm sure the teenager will use it.

NYC New York Color Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm. Value = $2.99

Broadway nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure. Value = $5.99-$7.99 - These were fun. I'm going to do a separate review on this. 

Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS Gelastic. Value = $18.00

Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes. Value = $1.69 - I didn't really like this. It crumbled when you bit into it and it was kind of dry. 

The total value of my Summer Beauty Box is $33.26-$35.26 and I received all of it for free!  So if you have a blog or don't mind using social networking to give your opinions on products then sign up with Influenster and you may be a lucky one picked for the next VoxBox. I'm super excited to try the press-on nails. This is normally something I would buy. The design is really pretty and I like that they are on the shorter side. They say they last up to a week so we will see.  The tastykake bar looks soooo good but it's definitely not on my diet. 

**I received these items for free from Influenster for evaluation purposes.  My opinions are my own and not influenced by the companies, products or Influenster.
