Do you want to get free L'Oreal makeup and skin products while helping them decide what new products consumers like you need? If you do, you'll want to check out the L'Oreal product testing program.
If you're interested in getting more free stuff to product test, check out these other programs from Influenster, Smiley360, House Party, PINCHme, and BzzAgent.
Visit the L'Oreal Consumer Testing Program sign-up page to join.
You'll need to answer some basic questions about yourself as well as fill out a profile that they can use to match you to certain skincare, hair, and makeup studies.
Once you join you'll be taken to your dashboard where you can view your available surveys, account information, and any studies that you're currently signed up for.
The most important area on your dashboard when you're getting started with the L'Oreal Consumer Testing Program is Available Surveys. This where you can take surveys and qualify to be in a product test study.
Sometimes you'll get emailed when you have a survey available, but sometimes they'll just show up on your dashboard. It's important to log-in at least a few times a week and check for surveys. They accept the first people who fill out the survey who also matches the profile they're looking for, so it really pays to take the surveys as soon as they're up.
Answer honestly when you're taking a survey. They test all sorts of products and if you don't qualify to test one of them, you'll qualify for one in the future.
When you get accepted to test a product, you'll get an email giving you all the details. All the studies work a little bit differently but they'll probably give you dates and instructions for testing the products.
Look in your mailbox for your products you're going to test over the next week or two. You'll receive complete instructions as well as the product to try.
At the end of the testing period, and sometimes throughout, you'll get a survey that asks for you to give your opinion about the product. Be sure to fill this out, this is the key to qualifying for more studies.
Want to get even more L'Oreal products to test? Here are some tips:
L'Oreal often sends out some of their most popular products right of the shelve to thank you for completing a study.
The last study I was involved with I got a free mascara and foundation after I completed the final study survey.
This was in addition to the free products that I got to test.
Through the L'Oreal Consumer Testing Program, you'll get to test and keep hair care, hair styling, hair color, cosmetics, skincare, and sun care products.
