So you might have seen this cool new "Add Video" button on our app. What is it, you ask? Now, any time you review a product, you have the option to add a one-minute video review. How cool is that? We love reading your reviews and now we get to hear and see them, too! Share a story about your product. Show us how to use it. Get creative!

Want to know how to upload a video review? Follow these simple steps below to start reviewing.

1. Search for a product you want to record a video for—or scan it. Have you used the scanning feature on the Influenster app? It's so easy! Just hold your phone over the product's barcode and the product page pops up almost instantly.

2. What would you like to film—A demonstration? Video review? Mystery question? Would other people enjoy seeing a before-and-after clip? Is how this product is used integral in knowing whether to buy it? If so, you should do a demo! If you're reviewing food or a demonstration isn't applicable, share a one-minute video review. Want some inspiration on what to discuss? Try a mystery question.

3. Rate the product and film your review. First things first, how many stars does this product deserve? Once that's decided, it's your time to shine. Things to keep in mind:

You have one minute to review the product. Collect your thoughts and try to keep your review as descriptive and concise as possible.

We want to see your smiling face and the product clearly, so make sure you're standing in good lighting.

Have your product on hand—It's great to show the product as you're speaking about it.

When discussing the product, tell us about what you liked, what you didn't, how you used the product, and how it ranks against competitors. What would you want to know if you were debating on whether to purchase?

You can pause and resume your review! This means that you can talk about the product, pause the video, swatch the product, pause the video, and then demonstrate it. Channel your inner Wes Anderson and be unique.


5. Tell us what your video is about by giving it a caption. For example, you could say, "The Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder is a staple in my makeup bag and here's why."

We're on the hunt for the best video reviews submitted by our members. Each week we'll be highlighting our favorites, so do your best and start video reviewing!
