L’Oreal Consumer Testing Compensation for Five Informational Studies

L’Oreal owns a lot of brands. While they sadly are not cruelty free, they do consumer testing in the US. Beauty lovers who wish to test products under the L’Oreal umbrella should become members of L’Oreal Consumer Testing Panel. Panelists are given informational surveys or free products to review. Signing up for the program is not always easy, because there are times when they do not accept new panelists. I attempted to sign up twice before I was successful on my third attempt. From the first attempt to the third, there was a nine-month span.

Once accepted into the program, panelists complete short qualification surveys determine eligibility in a survey/study. If selected for a testing panel, follow the step by step directions, and see it to completion. In addition to receiving testing products for free, you will receive compensation upon completion. Compensation varies based on the study you take part in. It can range from very little value for lower-end studies to hundreds of dollars worth of products for higher-end studies. Those participating in informational surveys get compensated upon completion of the fifth survey.

L’Oreal Consumer Testing Lipstick Informational Survey and My Freebies

See recent L’Oreal Consumer Testing articles.

I love many brands under the L’Oreal umbrella, so I jumped at the chance to join The L’Oreal Consumer Testing Panel.  Panel members have the opportunity to test L’Oreal products for free.  Short qualification surveys determine eligibility in a program.  If selected for a panel, follow the step by step directions to see it to completion.  In addition to receiving testing products for free, you will receive compensation upon completion.  Compensation varies based on the study you participate in.  It can range from very little value for lower end studies to hundreds of dollars worth of products for higher end studies.

I log in to the portal around 3-4 times a week.  You can log in less often or every day if you’d like.   Some days there are no surveys on my dashboard.  If I see any surveys, I will attempt them.  Qualification surveys usually take about two minutes.  They’re looking for a a small number from specific groups of people, so the sooner you fill out the survey the better the chance you will grab a spot.  People on the East Coast actually have a bit of an advantage, because the facility in New Jersey posts studies early.  By the time I get up and try to qualify, my group has mostly been filled.  That does not mean it is impossible for us West Coast beauty lovers to qualify.

Why You Should Become a L’Oreal Consumer Testing Panelist!

See recent L’Oreal Consumer Testing articles.

I first read about L’Oreal Consumer testing in May of 2014.  It seemed too good to be true, which always makes me a little weary.  Do not listen to people when they tell you nothing in life is free!  There are plenty of things in life that are free.  You just have to learn to discern.  How do you weed out the bogus opportunities from legitimate ones?  For one, referrals.  If a friend or someone you trust says something is legit, it just may be.  Even friends can inadvertently lead you astray, so never forget to take step two, which is to verify an offer.  If you’re not sure about something, it is generally better to do your own search rather than follow a link someone provides you.  Even deals too good to pass up may at times be missed, because we are skeptical.  The final and most important step is to follow through.  Persist until you receive the offer!

I did look into this program, and it seemed to be legit.  If you live near the testing facility, you can go in and participate in a study.  Live far away?  No worries.  They have at home testing, too.  They will mail the products to your house.  What products will you test?  Anything!  L’Oreal owns a lot of companies and those companies own a lot of products.  My beloved Lancome is a L’Oreal brand.  They want objective reviews, so they will try to mask the item you are trying.  If you’re already familiar with the product, you may be able to venture a guess on what it is.  So, I filled out the contact form and waited patiently for them to get back with me.  The pop up said it could take up to 2 weeks.
