Freebies: Featuring Influenster, BzzAgent, and The L'Oreal Consumer Testing Program

Over the past  month or so, I have received some great freebies from Influenster, The L'Oreal Consumer Testing Program and BzzAgent. Some items were received for testing purposes and others were compensation.

Before we get started with the items I received here's  some info about  the company's.

Here's an overview of BzzAgent:

And finally here's an overview of The L'Oreal Consumer Testing Program

Now let's get to the freebies!We'll start with the Items that I received to test out.

Influenster sent me the Venus Snap VoxBox
Included is a Venus Snap with Embrace razor with a travel case and a $4 off coupon for one Venus Blade Refill. This razor is perfect for on the go. I love the travel case and the fact that this razor is small enough to fit into my purse when i'm on the go is awesome. This razor gave a smooth and close shave and did not make my skin break out like most razors do. This product retails for around $9 and I defiantly  think its worth the price! You can sign up for influenster Here or you can leave me you email address in the comments and I will send you an invite. I would love to have you on my team!

The next two items that I received for testing purposes came courtesy of BzzAgent.

The first BzzCampaign I am participating in is the Paula's Choice CLEAR Acne Kit campaign.
I received 2 extra strength kits and 3 regular strength 2 week kits. This campaign requires me to share my sample's so I'll be using one kit and passing the others out to friends and family. I just started using this product today so I can't give a through review but I can say that the first use left my face feeling really good and I'm hoping for good results. The  regular size Paula’s Choice CLEAR Acne Kits start at $45, with no commitment or subscription required. Look for the line at,, and, as well as at select Pharmacy stores.

The second BzzCampaign that I was invited to is the Dr. Scholl's DreamWalk insert campaign.

The kit includes a free pair of Dr. Scholl’s  DreamWalk High Heel Insoles and some $4 coupons to share. These inserts are available in women's sizes 6-10 and they fit into all high heels, 2″ and higher. You can sign up to become a BzzAgent Here.

Now lets get to the items that I won and received as compensation.

I won a MegaVoxBox from Influenster for my entry into the #RealTea recipe contest. The VoxBox included:

A Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel Off Face Mask
Colgate Optic White Toothpaste
Red Rose Real Tea Blackcurrant Raspberry Water Enhancer
Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream
