L'Oreal Test Panel - Who's Getting What, and How Is It?!

Recommended Posts

Just curious- is anyone starting an at-home hair study on September 12th? I am looking forward to it since I had such a great experience in another L'Oreal hair study a few months ago.

Deborah H - you're so lucky with so many studies! I seriously never get picked for anything. I didn't qualify for the hair study, and I didn't qualify for another study yesterday that asked about blush products, boo! Hope you enjoy the hair study!

Hi, and happy Friday! I think that I have had beginner's luck with L'Oreal, but my dashboard has been kinda quiet lately (maybe because I am already okay'd for next week's hair study). I have had some luck also with "The Pink Panel" and just today there was a facial product study through "Clicks Research" that popped up in my e-mail Inbox.  If you haven't already done so, maybe you might want to look into those opportunities as well? Crossing my fingers that you get to participate in something fun soon!

My comp for a hair study (HC17-079) that I completed in July was extremely generous. I received an Urban Decay eye shadow palette, a Lancome all-over eyeshadow brush, and a Maybelline lipstick (in a very flattering shade). In addition- the shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in treatment that I tested were amazing.  I only wish I knew what the brand was so I could purchase them!!!

Thanks for the suggestions! I haven't seen anything in my Clicks dashboard yet, which is unfortunate because I spent a lot of time filling out my profile! I hadn't heard about the Pink Panel, but I'm now signed up! Hoping for some new opportunities!

 

In other news, I received my comp yesterday for the mascara study - a Vichy cleanser, and a Maybelline Color Sensational matte lipstick in 'All Fired Up' (a super bright pink/orange shade that I hope I'll love!)

Congrats! That sounds like a very nice comp for the mascara study.  I have heard good things about the Vichy cleanser :)

So a couple weeks ago there was a mini poll when I logged into my account. It asked about what type of compensation we prefer. I remember there were choices between things like gift cards, prepaid cards, products, or a combination. I remember the results put products as the most preferred comp but now it seems they are doing away with that: I got into a study today and it said my compensation would be a $10 prepaid card.

Kind’ve disappointed because I enjoyed the surprise aspect of the compensation. It was super fun to look forward too. It also gave me a chance to receive products I probably wouldn’t buy for myself. On the other hand, sometimes I receive things that don’t really suit me so they go to waste. And I have way too much makeup and really don’t need more (who am I kidding, I’ll still buy more lol, but still...)

What are your thoughts?

I agree 100%. I'm lucky to be at a point in my life where I can buy what I want. As a busy mom, though, I don't have many opportunities to treat myself. The free products were a fun surprise. A $10 gift card is just...money.

 

One of my past rewards was a Lancome blush trio, worth about $40. I love it, and plan to buy it again in the future, even though I don't like department store makeup counters. Convincing me to buy a high end product? I see that as a marketing win for L'Oreal. A $10 gift card isn't going to influence me to branch out and try new items. 

 

Congrats on getting into the study, though! At least you'll get to try new products that way, even if their identity remains forever a mystery!!

Anyone else do the hair mask study recently? I don't remember if they specifically said if there would be compensation or not but just wondering if anyone got any or remembers if they did specify or not? They sent a bunch of unclear emails about changes in 2018

I haven't seen any testing opportunities in such a very long time. I wondered if maybe they were doing away with the program but I am glad to hear that you were able to participate in a study! I didn't receive any e-mails about changes in 2018- would you mind sharing what information you received? Also, I do know that they offer lots of testing opportunities now through their "Clean & Green" beauty program. Here is a link with more information in case you are interested:

Do you know if we can sign up to that program you linked to even if we already are a member of l'oreal consumer testing? It sounds like it's a forum to talk to other panel members so it sounds kind of fun.

You can absolutely sign up even if you are participating in the main L'Oreal consumer testing website. There have been plenty of testing opportunities through the "Clean & Green" beauty program and the compensation is in Amazon gift cards, which is pretty amazing. I do have to tell you though that the "Clean & Green" beauty program is migrating this week. It sounds like L'Oreal is going to combine 5 testing programs together to form the "L'Oreal C Space community". It sounds like a bigger forum, but members will still have an opportunity to talk to each other via the website, and to discuss all things beauty. I hope you join in the fun!

Has anyone had problems contacting L'Oreal about missing compensation? I completed a study back in December 2017 but never received anything. I know I completed it despite problems on their end. I emailed them twice, and I'm kinda bummed that they haven't responded.

I am surprised to hear that! I haven't had any issues with missing compensation in the past. Usually they are responsive by e-mail- did you e-mail the person that was running your particular study directly, or did you try the general "Contact Us" address? In my experience the person that is running the study has always been responsive.  Good luck to you!

I contacted both actually! I'm surprised as well. There were a few problems with the study and the person who was running it was super helpful/quick to answer my emails when the study was happening. But almost two months later and I still haven't had a reply back from my email asking about compensation. Oh well, maybe I'll try one more time.

Thanks for this link and information.
I just tried signing up for this forum using the link you provided (I am a participant of the main program) and the system didn't let me. After seeing my email address, said I can't sign up because I already am a L'Oreal consumer testing panelist.

Was anyone a part of the foundation study on 11/16? The survey never showed up for me and all they told me was that I should have received an email with a link to the study..but I didn't. Pretty frustrating 😕 I hope this doesn't disqualify me from future studies
