The new and improved Influenster

I've developed a serious addiction to online monthly subscription boxes - currently subscribing to Birchbox, Ipsy (formerly MyGlam), and Julep - where you pay a monthly fee and you get a box of goodies in the mail. Mine are all beauty boxes, and have varying degrees of customization so you get to try new products that are geared to your own personal skin type, preferences, or interests.

Another fun player on the scene is Influenster, which has recently been revamped and is better than ever! What makes Influenster different is that it's a free service - you sign up as a user and fill out your profile for the chance to be selected for a VoxBox of products. Each VoxBox is matched up with registered users of the site to find the best possible match for the products that are being featured, and when you are selected for a VoxBox you will receive it free of charge. In return you simply review the items provided and share your experiences on your various social media channels. You get to try new products, and the brands get free advertising and word of mouth - a win/win situation for sure!

I was lucky enough to be picked for a VoxBox earlier this year and am still enjoying several of the FULL SIZE products I received. I'm still exploring the newly redesigned site and filling out the enhanced profile, and wanted to share the news for those who have not yet checked out the site.

It seems as though Influenster may be invitation only at the moment, so if you are interested let me know and I'll send you an invite!
