Anyone interested in being a volunteer to test cosmetics?

Products are already tested as being safe, they just want to know whether they work or not!

They send stuff to you at home to test for them free of charge.

    These are good, i've had lots of stuff to test, but you have to be really quick to reply to their email invitations, as they go so fast. ;)

    I've never had luck with them yet, but I know that a lot of people on here are registered and get to try loads of goodies.

    I think my problem is that I put I had sensitive skin which probably limits the types of products that I'd be sent to try.

    The wider the choice of options you tick, the more chance you've got of being selected for the trials. :)

    I have registered with them twice over the last 2 years, but have rarely been offered anything. When i have, the invitations had all been full up. I dont bother now, i just delete the emails if i get any.

    Apparently if you are over 30 and have problem skin you get more invites.:confused:

    I joined about a month ago ,and just completed my first trial yesterday (a bathroom cleaner spray.) You do have to be quick to respond to e-mails, but it's fun. I'm looking forward to seeing what else I get to trial. :j

    I've been a member since the beginning and I've only had one trial. I don't even get email invites any more :(

    I've had loads of products from them to test, including lip plumper, cotton wall, bathroom cleaner, face cream, lipstick and mascara. My toddlers have also had toothpaste and bubble bath to test!

    I've only had one thing to test well 2 as part of the same test. 2 toners- use 1 for one week and then the other for a week and say which is best no e-mails since. I was hoping for lots of mascaras and lipsticks etc
