The UniVoxBox from Influenster!

Hello Babblers!

As many of you know I am obsessed with free samples(check out some tips HERE!) So when I first found out about influenster I was extremely excited! Influenster is a service that is interested in finding opinions about products. When you first log on you select certain badges that apply to you and complete some surveys as well as some reviews and activities to qualify for a VoxBox. These boxes have a theme and are filled with items that target a certain group of people. You need to qualify for a box. My second box is the UniVoxBox. It is targeted for college/post graduate students in my age group. This box had some awesome items and I was very excited to receive it. I am going to leave a review for the items in the box below feel free to check them out! I also have some pictures and videos on instagram! So take a look @BabblingDani ūüôā

univoxboxALL PRODUCT IN THE FOLLOWING REVIEWS ARE COMPLEMENTS OF INFLUENSTER FOR TESTING AND REVIEWING PURPOSES!

I am going to start with the Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons. Personally I do not use tampons so these went to my sister who loves them! They are her favorite tampons and she loved the odor shield.

The Pilot AcroBall Pen is fantastic! I have a new favorite pen! It writes with a super smooth black ink and it comes in all white with a splash of color. The one I received is yellow but there are a lot of colors that they offer! I recommend picking some up!

The RedRose Real Tea Water Enhancer lives in my purse. I drink water or fresh brewed green tea normally and that is it. However I really enjoyed this enhancer so I have it in my bag for when I need a splash of flavor! It tastes great!!

The NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Color does what it says. It lasts a decent amount of time. I took it off fairly quickly I couldn’t do it anymore it was very vibrant in color and it was just not me at all…I am not a fan of lip color I love my blistex. I would recommend it to anyone who likes lipstick it was just not for me based on my preferences.

The Broadway Nails imPRESS Manicure was FANTASTIC! I put them on Monday morning (it is now late thursday) they are still on. I was extremely skeptical. I am not a huge fan of the pattern I have but I LOVE this product. it took me a little while to find the right fit for my nails but once I found the 10 that fit I put them on in 5 short minutes. They were not a perfect fit but it looks good and I am extremely happy with how easy they were to put on and how nice they look I got a ton of compliments at work this week.

Last but not least the Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation I really liked this product it provided great coverage without looking like I was wearing a lot of makeup. It lasted really well too. It matched my skin tone very well and with a little bit of powder it all blended perfectly. I would not have picked this up on my own but I am glad I purchased it! I really like the product and I would recommend checking it out if you are in the market for a new foundation.

 

Overall I am very happy with the contents of my VoxBox! They are teasing the next one and I am really hoping I can qualify! ūüôā Have any questions about Influenster or any of the contents of the UniVoxBox ¬†please contact me! ūüôā

Learn to Freebie!

Being a poor college student I got resourceful! I have received sample sized shampoos, full size bottle of cleaning products, coupons, fragrances, household items, even perscription EYE GLASSES (probably my best freebie EVER I got them from Coastal.com¬†when they were having a first pair free sale)!¬†I have been requesting freebies for about 2 years. Over this time I have gotten very good at finding awesome deals! Things got serious when I was working my summer job in 2012. I was working with a few other girls from my college and during down time we would all be on Amazon or some other site shopping. One of the girls was constantly getting mail delivered of items she requested for free. We were intrigued. She showed us a few tips and the madness began… Since then I have spent a lot of time requesting these free items/coupons. Now when I have down time this is what I do.

How to get started.

Companies do not know that you want their product… you need to request it. So it does take some work.

You need to really think about what products you like. Is there a kind of shampoo you love but it is too expensive? Have you always wanted to try a product but never purchased it? All things to think about have an idea of companies and products.

  1. You do have to enter your email address for most freebies. I would suggest having an email address specifically for your freebies. (I have one and it was a great idea! no spam in my normal email)
  2. go to websites and see if something offered brands like Kotex normally have samples available P&G also offers sample boxes about 4 times a year!
  3. ALWAYS OPT OUT OF OPTIONAL EMAILS!
  4. auto-fill is your friend having to type in your address over and over is annoying!
  5. Like company pages on facebook. They often post about giveaways or even contests. 
  6. Follow companies on twitter.
  7. Freebies go fast don’t expect them to be there hours later.

There are easier ways to do this. There are blogs out there that post when a freebie is available. My addiction started because of Freebieshark they even offer an option to receive a text when great freebies are available. (as I am typing this I just got a text and requested a free sample of Hefty garbage bags) 

Serious about reviewing products? Check out these sites!

Pinch Me. About once a month they open up the ability to receive freebies. It is always at 12pm est.  You can request a box with up to 3 samples! You do a survey and your points go up to qualify to get more samples.

BzzAgent is another great site you do surveys and they will send you full size products to test. You need to review them but it is worth it!

Influenster is another favorite of mine. They have a VoxBox program. (basically a box of whatever they want you to review based on surveys most have a theme!) another site you do surveys to qualify for boxes (this site is harder and takes more patience than others)

I wanted to give you a quick how-to I will be posting a lot more about freebies in the future! PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS!

Enjoy!
