Influenster Campaign Kohl’s Back to School VirtualVox

My kids and I usually do our back-to-school shopping toward the end of July or the beginning of August. Summer vacation is almost over and school starts again in two weeks and one day. This summer went way too fast and as they spent a month of it with their Dad, what time I did get with them was far from enough. On 07/19/18, I received an email from Influenster that it selected me to join its Kohl’s Back to School VirtualVox. Like every other VirtualVox, you get selected without doing any surveys. Thus, you get to decide which ones you take part in and which ones to ignore. My plan was to head over to Kohl’s and see if they had any items my boys wanted. If they did not want anything, I would have declined to take part in this one.

Challenge: Condition Your Hair Before You Shampoo It

There are a lot of beauty trends that make no sense to me, like bright red lipstick under your eyes to conceal dark circles. Then, there are others that seem a little odd, but I can see the reasoning when I really examine what people are going for. Conditioning your hair before you shampoo it is one of them. Could those with lifeless or flat hair who need conditioner to soften and assist with tangles reverse the typical rotation and still achieve beautiful hair? More companies are jumping on this bandwagon and actually creating systems designed to reverse your routine. TreSemme is one of those companies, and I actually got a chance to try its reverse system when I joined an Influenster VoxBox earlier this year. Systems marketed that way are definitely, but I wanted to see if they actually worked better in reverse. Of course, you could always try this challenge with your current shampoo and conditioner instead of rushing out to buy a set that is specifically marketed as a reverse system.

Influenster Really Influences My Purchases

Influenster is the sampling site that sends free items for you to try.  There is no catch to trying the free items other than the request that you review the item(s) and complete a short exit survey.  For minimal effort, you get items in a free VoxBox selected based on your profile and qualification survey.  Sometimes the items are brand new to you, and those are the items I most look forward to, not that I mind receiving extras of items I already know and love.

My most recent VoxBox gave me the opportunity to try the Dessange Haircare line.  Prior to receiving it in my VoxBox, I had never heard of the brand.  After researching it, I learned it was yet another line in the impressive Loreal brand.  I instantly fell in love with the shampoo and conditioner.  Since testing it, I now see it pop up often.  It is only sold at Target, but luckily for me, that is where I shop the most.  This has been a Cartwheel offer twice, and I’ve even seen a Target coupon pop up.  I also walk into the hair care aisle on certain trips to see what other items Dessange has to offer.

Influenster Virtual VoxBox from Healthy Essentials

Influenster is the completely free sampling program that has members complete short surveys to see if they qualify for specific programs.  Read more about the free program.  I’ve received several physical Voxboxes before, but I recently received my first Virtual Voxbox.

As someone who loves deals and saving money, this virtual Voxbox was right up my alley.  Coupons are always nice to receive, but I have never taken the time to get into extreme couponing.  Thus, I tend to only use physical coupons I stumble upon and do not actively seek them out the way I actively seek out online promo codes.  Healthy Essentials offers virtual coupons, so I should be able to print coupons I want.

Influensters Test Dessange Hair Care. Have You Joined Yet?

Some of you may have read or heard about Influenster.  If you have not, you can read my overview here.  The only thing better than getting a great deal and trying new things is trying new things for free.  Influenster always sends completely free items, so everything I received here was free.

Wen is my usual hair product and as you may know, I love it.  It is a cleansing conditioner, so it does not clean the same way a shampoo does.  Read more about how Wen cleans here.  I do tend to use other shampoos occasionally when I am in a hurry (Wen takes time) or I just want a deep clean.  Whenever I receive shampoos, I am not overly excited.  My hair tends to feel like straw on a Wen off day whereas it feels like silk on a Wen day.

Influentser Really Gives Free Trial Products

See recent Influenster articles.

There are a lot of companies that get you to join by luring you in with false promises of free trial products with no catch.  For every one that is legit, there are probably two more that are not.  I was lucky enough to find a great one that has sent me products to try with no cost to me.  The only thing that Influenster asks is that you check in and review the products.  It prefers you connect the reviews to as many social media accounts as possible to increase your reach, which it calls an impact score.

Since joining a year and a half ago, I have sampled some great free products. Most of the products it asks you to sample are beauty related, but occasionally it asks you to sample lifestyle or food products.  If Influenster thinks a program may be a nice fit for you, it sends a survey.  Upon completion of the survey, you will either be excluded from receiving a Vox Box (filled with free goodies to sample, then review) or you will be placed in the running.  An email will follow shortly thereafter if you will receive a box.  Another email will go out when the box ships.  It will send another email to remind you to check in the box.

The box I received today was right up my alley.  My favorite candy bar is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  When I found out I was selected to try the new Reese’s Spread, I was ecstatic.  Peanut butter and chocolate go together so well.  I opened up my VoxBox (sent courtesy of Influenster), which contained a free 13oz jar of spread.  The boxes are normally themed.  This one looked like this.

Influenster Reeses 4

I like the box so much that I will likely reuse it for something.  Once you open the box, you will find a product card that tells you a little about the product(s).  This was one of the more detailed cards I’ve seen.

Influenster Reeses 2 Influenster Reeses 1

The product(s) are under the card.  In this case, I was very happy to see that it was a very nice 13oz size.  It is not uncommon to receive full sized items, but I have seen some smaller items in the box.  Until it arrives, you will not usually know the size.

Influensters Reese 3

I already sampled this on nothing but a spoon, and it was incredibly delicious.  Oddly enough, I found it creamier than my beloved peanut butter cups, so I think this will go great on so many things.  My brain is already thinking of all the different things I can try this on.  Tomorrow, I think I am going to try it with apples and bananas.  Yesterday, my family made cookies.  I am definitely going to top one of those cookies with this spread tomorrow. Putting the candy bar in spread version was pure genius.  Every moment of said genius was savored.  Have you joined the Influenster Nation?  If not, check Influenster out here.  Completely free trial products await you!  I cannot think of a better deal than free.
