My lips are very dry. As I’ve stated many times over the past couple of years, I am on the hunt for the perfect lip balm. In my attempt to find the perfect lip balm for the best possible price, I have purchased countless balms. Every time I think I am ready to post my comprehensive review article, I purchase more lip balms to test. I did that once again, so I am still testing new ones. My goal is to get that large review up before the winter is over. Fingers crossed I can stop buying lip balm long enough to finish the article. In order to properly review a lip balm, I need a minimum of two weeks using it multiple times a day with no other lip balms. In some cases, I am even able to test it with no other lip products, because it is not unusual for me to go two weeks without wearing makeup. It also helps to stop using any lip balm at all after testing one to see how my lips feel after I stop using the product.
Brandbacker is a community open to social media influencers. People who actively post product reviews on: blogs, Youtube, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook apply for campaigns they want to take part in. Applying is an easy process that takes less than a minute. Brands review the user’s profile and social reach and decide if the member is a good fit for the campaign. In exchange for free products, reviewers share their thoughts with their social networks. I love testing new products and sharing my reviews, so this program is perfect for me. The only caveat is brands get to review posts before they go live, so articles on products that do not perform could be killed before the article even gets published. If a brand kills my article for an unfavorable review, I will not work with that brand in the future. As always, free products do not affect my review.
