How do people get free products to review?

I notice a lot of product reviews say “Received free product.” How do you get free products? Are these from Influenster or is there another app/program similar?

Re: How do people get free products to review?

Yes most are from influencer

Re: How do people get free products to review?

ahh thank you for asking this! I was so curious as well and have always wanted to try new things. All of the responses were incredibly helpful y'all. 

Re: How do people get free products to review?

Hi Marissa. I've received many products over the years for free to review and then post pics and honest reviews on how I liked or didn't like the product. I've received everything from a brand new Keurig coffee maker to high-end foundation to hair care products - all from being a member of Influenster. I have a link for you to join but I'm not sure if that's allowed here on the message boards or not. 

I also just received free, decent sized household samples for free from Sample Source dot com - just fill out a questionnaire and you should start receiving items here and there, but when they send you a survey about your household, etc you have to fill it out so that they know what samples to send. 

I hope you have some luck getting freebies sent your way!! 

Have a great day!!

💋

Re: How do people get free products to review?

Can you send the link to me as well? 

Re: How do people get free products to review?

 @rootbeeriiz  yes, Influenster is so awesome - I really didnt think I'd get much, since I dont do the whole 'social media', instagram thing...but I've gotten 2 full size bottles of perfume - 1 philosophy, and the other tom ford!!! the biggest size!!! 😃😍🤗

 

I used to be so annoyed at not getting free stuff from sephora, since I shop a lot and am rouge, lol, and also thought I was helpful and active here. (they claim it's for 'active' members', but of course, being active doesnt mean you'll get anything.)

 

but now, especially since receiving the full size tom ford perfume, I dont care anymore, bc I know thats better and more valuable than anything I'd ever get from sephora, anyway...

 

so, for anyone frustrated and wondering how to get free stuff, even after supposedley following the 'criteria', I wouldnt waste your time trying to get anything from sephora.

 

go to Influenster, instead.  you could spend the same amount of time you'd spend here there instead, answering surveys and stuff, and actually get something. 🤗

Re: How do people get free products to review?

also, I've been seeing ads on FB for 'free samples' from different brands...got one from skinceuticals, and just 'signed up' for a couple perfume samples from tom ford and jo malone...so, I'd also check FB, too. 🤗

Re: How do people get free products to review?

ok but no one answered this question at all. Are these random offers given to random people or are there specs required to be eligible?

Re: How do people get free products to review?

Hello! Not sure if you received an answer to your question about ppl getting free products, I agree on Sephoras site alot come from Influenster, BzzAgent and even Pinchme however I'm an influencer/reviewer where I oy receive free products in exchange for my opinion or review as they say. There's many different sites that offer these products all free to join and participate in. Good Luck!

 

Re: How do people get free products to review?

@arainan Influenster is how most people get free items for review.  Anyone can apply for it.  The gratis on BIC is random and chosen by Sephora.

Re: How do people get free products to review?

Thank you so much for the clarification

I received an email from sephora about a gratis opportunity. I gave them a bit of information but I’m hoping it wasn’t a scam

The @TeamBIC email meationed it was first come first serve basis. The email I got in May took 5 weeks to arrive and I received the Huda palette/sock/phone socket package most people did ❤ Hopefully I get another email❤❤❤

@KehDee received the same email!! I really do hope I receive something!!

Re: RE: How do people get free products to review?

@KehDee If the sender is from TeamBIC or one of the admins or mods, it's not a scam. Congrats on your gratis and can't wait to see your products and reviews!

RE: Re: RE: How do people get free products to review?

Thank you! It was from Team BIC!!

Check out this article for a large list of "free for review" programs. Influenster is the most well known, but there are others out there.

Re: How do people get free products to review?

also if you get a free sample here, you can check if you got it for free when you leave a review, and then it will say "recieved free product" or something.
