I have been a member of Influenster since earlier this year.  It's a neat way to connect with companies and let your opinions be heard.  You answer questions about products, write reviews, share on social networks, and in doing so, you unlock "badges."  It's by those badges that you are considered to review products.

Twice I have been selected to receive a "Vox Box" which is a box full of new or existing products to sample and review.  Usually, you don't know what's in the box until it arrives and so far, they have been nice surprises.  You may have seen my reviews here on the blog or on Facebook.

This time, I have been charged with an unusual review task, to review the review site.  Hmmm...

Well.  Here goes:

I like how streamlined the new site looks and that it is fairly straight forward to navigate.
I'm not thrilled that I can only unlock a few "expert badges" at a time.
I do like that the new scoring system crosses over whereby if I write a review for an eco-friendly lipstick, it counts towards my eco score and my beauty score.

Overall, I am pleased with this new design of the website.

By the way, if you would like to sign up for Influenster but you don't have a blog, don't worry.  You can tweet your reviews or post them to Facebook or Pinterest.  Give it a try and good luck!
