What Is Influenster?

Recently, I have read many bloggers talking about Influenster. I decided to see what the big deal was. After waiting to receive an invitation [if you want one, comment with your email address + i'll send it over], I logged in + saw what the deal was.

Basically, you review products + based on your choices, Influenster sends you a VoxBox full of goodies [sample size + full-size] for you to review, or to pass onto friends or readers to review. Its totally free, which is awesome. I have seen VoxBox samples on other blogs, + to be honest, the goodies inside look better than Birchbox samples, which cost $20 a month. I was a faithful Birchbox girl for quite some time, but after I was sent expired products twice, with a generic email response back from the girl I was told to speak with, I decided that I wasn't going to give them any more of my cash. Plus, the last few boxes I got were crappy anyway.

Whats awesome is that Influenster doesn't want you to write a review praising the product if you think it sucks - they want to know why you're not a fan  + why! Its also a great way to find out about a variety of items from folks that aren't being sponsored [some bloggers don't like speaking poorly of a product that they don't like - I, on the other hand, will tell you if I'm not a fan, because being honest is key]. As soon as I receive my VoxBox, I will share it with you all on here + yes, I will also be sending items to my readers, because sharing is caring!

If you are on Influenster, what do you think of it? If you're interested in joining, let me know + I will send you an invite!


  1. I'm pretty new to Infuenster. Just got my first VoxBox, it was the Holiday VoxBox. Love it so far, and looking forward to more!

  2. Oooh, sounds fun! Invite me!

  3. i'd love on please! shellasaurusrex@gmail

    i also got rid of my birchbox, in a year i watched my samples get smaller and i got expired products twice and the same product sent to me 3 times!

    1. Apparently they only allow me five invitations, until more of my friends sign up. As soon as I have one available, I will send one your way! :)

  4. I'll take an invite if you've got some still -- lwalczak [at] gmail [dot] com

  7. So, I joined up, have a decently high score (90+)... now I'm just wondering, when do the perks and such kick in? Any ideas/have you gotten any of the boxes yet?
