Gain Fling & Fireworks, Influenster and What's a Voxbox?

Recently I saw someone post on Twitter that they got a Voxbox from Influenster and they loved their free products. Now if you've been reading my blog for very long you know I'm always on the lookout for websites and companies that let you test products at home in exchange for a review or sharing samples and coupons with your friends. So I decided to find out what this Influenster was all about. 

I went to the Influenster website, read through what the site was about and signed up for an account. I completed a few reviews for products on their site that I had already used and completed a few lifestage Badge reviews and surveys. Within a couple of days I was sent an email telling me that I had been selected to receive a Gain Voxbox. 

A Voxbox is a box from Influenster that has a product or products in it for you to try at home and then complete a few tasks on the Influenster site such as a review, share on Twitter or a blog post such as this one. 

As you can see from the picture above my Gain Voxbox contained a bag with 5 Gain Flings pods, a sample size of Gain Fireworks scent booster and a $10 iTunes gift card. 

Just in time for Laundry day!
I received my Gain Voxbox yesterday and did a load of laundry this morning. I did a small load of my shirts I was planning on throwing away because I had gotten grease splatters on them while cooking and I thought the grease spots would never come out. So I washed 7 shirts and was pleasantly surprised when 5 of the shirts that had just a few grease splatters came out completely clean, the other two still had a couple of visible grease splatters but they were much less visible and I decided to just wash them again with a larger load of laundry and one came out completely clean while the other that had the biggest grease stain just wasn't going to come clean so I just tossed that shirt. *I really need to buy an apron to wear when I'm cooking*

I did a load of cotton baby blankets and fleece throws that I use in my rat cages and used the Gain Fireworks scent booster with the Gain Flings to see if it would help with the urine smell that can get on the blankets and throws and was pleasantly surprised to find that it really did. I cleaned both cages and changed the bedding in them this morning and I can still smell the Gain Fireworks scent coming from the blankets, it's subtle but nice. 

My old man rat, Marbles is comfy and sleeping in his upper box in freshly washed blankets. 

Lucky is hiding inside his pink igloo with his freshly washed cotton baby blanket. 

So my thoughts on Influenster and the Voxbox are as follows:
This is a great program for people like myself who like to do surveys, tasts and blog posts in exchange for free products and product samples. The tasks are really easy like posting tweet, fb post or blog post about what you received from Influenster and in exchange you get to keep and use free products.
