Smile Be a BOOTS product tester

Please view the continuation of this thread here.

BOOTS now have a sign up on there web page...
https://www.bootsvolunteers.com/mycontactdetails.aspx

I think you will all like this one a couple of weeks ago I emailed boots
customerservice@care.boots.com
And this morning I got a reply...
THEY DO WANT PRODUCT TESTERS!!!!!
They test cosmetics, toiletries and skincare products at an evaluation center and Home user studies involve using products at home and completing a questionnaire about the product.

All I did was email to enquire if they were looking for product testers for boots branded products... they took a while getting back to me but you fill in a health evaluation and your all set so bombard boots!!!! lol

i did this a while ago.got the health questionnaire but didn't proceed cos it was too long winded.not sure whether it said they would contact OR might contact your GP if you ticked any of the conditions on the list.it's ok for those healthy folk out there i guess.
sarcasm is just one more service i offer

I can picture them being bombarded now with emails from MSE members. It's worth a try I so I've just sent them an email.
