bzz agent - consumer testing panel (aka lookie what i got to try out!)

Recommended Posts

I've been invited to a CarMD campaign. It's a pay-to-play campaign, and I'm not sure if I'd use the thing ever. So I'm not sure I'll be joining.

I got invited too. Does pay to play mean you pay for the item and then use it?

 

I would never use it, but I guess I could give it to my parents and have them use it. But it's not very often that I would need to have my car fixed.

To me that's not worth it. Even though your getting it at like 70% off.

 

It seems like they invited a ton of people into this one. I've only been apart of BZZ Agent for like 3 weeks and most people said it takes awhile to get campaigns.

I'm sure they invite everyone to one that you have to pay for, as long as you said you have a car or whatever. But I'm not gonna pay to do advertising for someone.

You know.. if father's day were sooner, I'd get it. My dad works on cars all the time since he's retired and has a ton of oldies and it'd probably be beneficial for him. I'm going to look into the thing a lot more though.

It only works on cars 1996 and old though. So he probably wouldn't be able to use it on his older cars.

 

I don't know how it works, but you could give it to him to try and then you post his comments on the thing or whatever. They do say the more campaigns you do the better chance you have at getting another. Because of the whole points system they use. The higher amount of points you get[from doing the surveys and campaigns] the better chance you have at getting a survey.

Sign up for HouseParty too! I think getting picked by them is more of a lottery type deal if you fit their demographics, but they give you great stuff. i.e. $250 Keurig brewers :D

Sort of. You apply to "host parties" sponsored by companies who send you all kinds of cool supplies for you and your guests. For example, The Keurig House Party I got picked for, they are sending me 14 cups, napkins, coffee, an apron, and a brewer machine. I got picked for a Bare Minerals house party a couple years ago and they sent me 15 samples of moisturizer and a few full size items to pass out to guests.

That sounds cool. Do you get notified of campaigns or do you just sign up?

 

Do you actually have to host a party or can I just hand out the samples to friends and family and get feedback?

 

Also do you get to keep the items?

You get notified via email when new parties are available. You apply then you find out a few weeks later if you get picked. You are technically agreeing to host an actual party, but I have friends that haven't and they have still gotten picked to host future parties. They also send you a follow up survey at the end of your party so it's important that you fill that out. And yes you get to keep everything they send you.

I liked the new line of foundation pretty well, actually. I was (sadly) more excited by the full-size POREfessional I got, because I like BB cream better these days, but c'est la guerre.Here's what all they sent me:

14 goodie bags w/stuffers: BadGal Lash Mascara, POREfessional deluxe size, magnetic photo frame, sample vial for your matching shade, page of coupons.

The entire line of the new foundation. Each bottle had a small sample of POREfessional inside--basically swatch-size.

A hardcover book about brows and other beauty topics--forget the details, as I loaned it out to a guest

*Hervana blush

*POREfessional

*Eye contour kit

*Benetint

*Brow gel

 

Items with a * were full-sized

That's an awesome mix of full size items! I love the goodie bag items too. I gotta go swatch that foundation at Ulta soon.. but it's starting to get hot and my face + arizona heat + liquid foundation = bad.

Bwahaha, yeah, I'm in AZ, too, remember?

 

The last remaining bottle of the foundation is going in the traveling box, by the way. If someone matched a shade, I gave it to 'em. This is a good shade, just didn't match any of us (I consciously TRIED to have a good mix of skin tones among attendees). And I traded off the Hervana for something I actually wanted a sample of, and gave the brow thing to my co-worker/enabler, but the Benetint and POREfessional would have been compensation ENOUGH, you know?

Yeah I would have been happy with just a POREfessional house party honestly haha.

Petal was the shade that best suited me, which was surprising, as usually I would have grabbed Ivory. But my roommate pointed out that I've gotten slightly darker since I've lived out here. :( I miss being pale.

    • I've finished my Yves Rocher Sensitive Vegetal mini cream, and I have moved on to a mini glass bottle of The Ghost Oil from Poetic Blend (October 2017 Petit Vour box). One of the great things about the No Buy/Project Use It Up is that it has freed me from my compulsive decluttering. Compulsive decluttering is a real thing that is recognized as a mental health issue. It is a compulsive need to get rid of things and throw things away, in an excessive manner. This is an attempt to control anxiety and other emotions. So many beautiful cosmetics ended up in my garbage pail, not old, well used things, but pretty things I loved and wanted. The compulsive decluttering arose from two primary emotional states, as far as I can tell. The first was unhappiness with my face and hair and appearance. I would try a product once or twice, then look in the mirror and feel disappointed. I felt I did not look any better. So I would throw away the pretty new items and go and look for something else. Now, I never look in the mirror and pick on myself. Instead, I look at my little jars and bottles and see how close they are to being used up. That is the goal now. It has taken the pressure off of using them and looking for a certain result on my face. Once an item is fully used, I know I have done the best I could with my looks, and that is all I can do. And I enjoy the pretty items. If I do see my face and think it looks bad, I just kindly tell myself I am tired from stress or work. In the past, I never gave the pretty lotions and makeup a chance. It takes time for lotions to work, and experimentation to learn to apply a particular makeup product to one's specific facial structure.  The second emotion that drove my compulsive decluttering was anxiety about money, about spending, frustration with wanting more than I could afford. I wanted to control all that, and I felt that by getting rid of the things I could make the anxiety and want go away. I would feel better for a bit after throwing things out, but it never solved my problems. I would go out and buy more the next day. Instead, now I use up all my things up instead of buying new, and I have the anxiety, guilt, and compulsive shopping under control. I threw away so many pretty things, and I regret it so much. I wasted things and money, and hurt myself really badly. I could have enjoyed so much more, saved so much money, been so much happier. The last time I decluttered was in 2017, before I began this No Buy, and it means so much to me.  **I should clarify that the cosmetics thrown away were new, expensive, and nice. I'm not talking about throwing away old, expired, broken things, or things I was allergic to. And it was not just a matter of a few things; it was just about all my things, for years and years, decades. I would buy nice things, use them one or twice, throw them away, and buy more. I hurt myself so much. I am so glad this is gone now.
