DISCLOSURE

Here at Influenster we take disclosure very seriously. Influenster members may have the opportunity to be invited to campaigns where they receive complimentary products to review. The Federal Trade Commission requires testing program participants to clearly disclose that they have received products for complimentary testing purposes in all review materials. When posting on social media and/or reviewing these products, members must 1. Disclose that they received the product(s) for free for testing purposes by explicitly stating "free" or "complimentary" in their caption 2. Use appropriate hashtags as outlined in campaign communication and rules.

Members may also have the opportunity to participate in virtual contest campaigns (where they do not receive products to test). In these campaigns, members must disclose in their online posts that they are participating in a contest by using hashtag #contest.

Members participating in all Influenster campaigns are required to abide by our disclosure rules outlined in our terms, campaign pages and emails. Failure to abide by these rules will result in a warning. If the warning is not heeded, the member will be suspended from all Influenster campaigns. Please refer to the following rules and guidelines:

WRITING A REVIEW?

Be sure to explicitly disclose in your review that you received the product free for testing purposes. It's important others know you received it complimentary, but do give your honest opinion- the good, the bad and the lovely!

TIPS FROM THE TEAM:
Want to become a reviewing rockstar? Here are some questions that you should ALWAYS ask yourself while writing a product review!
  • Have I tried this product?
  • Did I receive this product for free? If yes, did I disclose?
  • How can my review contribute to the conversation?
  • Is my review high quality and informative?
  • Is my review honest and original?

I received the DESSANGE Paris Oleo Miracle Replenishing Shampoo free from Influenster to test-- and I'm SO glad I did! My hair is very damaged from wear and tear, heat tools, constantly putting it up into tight ponytails, etc. After using this shampoo (and conditioner) for about a week, I actually noticed a change in the appearance and feel of my hair. My hair was smoothr, and not as flat as it usually was. Not to mention, the scent is YUMMY and I received a lot of compliments on it. Would definitely recommend trying this and other products in the line-- I will certainly be repurchasing again!

And now for the obvious disclaimer: "I received these products complimentary from influenster for testing purposes." Yep. Free stuff for me to try and then review... because I'm Batman.
