Poshly Custom-Tailored Freebies

Posted on Oct 16, 2013 in Marketing, Reviews | 2 comments

Recently, I discovered an interesting site to enter to win different beauty products, Poshly.com.  In order to enter, you answer a few questions that, I know now, are market research questions.  These questions range from things like “How often do you wear foundation?”, “Do you watch what you eat?”, “How would you describe your skin?”, and “How old are you?”.  In hopes of winning items from brands like Clinique, Makeup Forever, and Urban Decay, I’ve answered a lot of questions trying to win!

Last week, I got an email saying that some free samples were on my way from Poshly, but no specification as to what would be coming.  Great, I thought, whatever it is will be cool.  I expected a little sample size lotion or something that I may or may not care to use.  Instead, today I received a MASSIVE box full of full-sized products that seem to be hand-picked based on responses I gave on those little quiz questions while trying to win stuff.  All of the products in the box seem to address issues I identified in my quiz responses.  Turns out, this is Poshly’s goal.  From their site:

Our mission at Poshly is to build personalization technologies that connect beauty brands with beauty consumers in innovative, data-driven ways. On Poshly, members discover beauty products that are best suited for their characteristics while brands better understand the preferences and personas of consumers in real-time.

So my beauty exploration and marketing worlds are overlapping!  Many of these items are organic, botanical, cruelty-free, and even vegan!  All the Sia Botanics products are free of Gluten, Parabens, Sulfates, and Synthetic colorants or fragrances.  The Sia Botanics and L’Oreal Paris products are 100% vegan, and they plus the Infinity Sun lip balm are all cruelty-free.  I tallied up the prices and the value of what I was sent is easily over $150!  So thanks, Poshly!  I’m going to try to post reviews of all of them over time since they’re all new products to me.  Here’s the list of what I got, and where you can get them for yourself!
