Guinea Pigs apply here.... Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesFree make-up, skin and beauty products.

DisadvantagesNo remuneration. Trials fill up really quickly. Very poor customer service.

That's partly because they are just so expensive, but mainly because I'm not really convinced that they make a great deal of difference.

Become a volunteer: Free make up! Review with images

AdvantagesFree beauty products

DisadvantagesDon't know what brand you are testing

"I joined cosmetic research online a few months ago, after reading a review here on Ciao about they way it gives its membersí free make up to try and then comment on.

Advantagesfree good quality products for little effort

Disadvantagestrials fill quickly, being unable to change your name and password

"I'm always a sucker for a freebie and not adverse to filling in the odd survey provided I know there will be something in it for me. Usually I prefer it to be cash, but free beauty products are always nice to have too, so I'm a fan of this particular site. Ayton Moon Consultancy (the company behind this website) trial products for some large companies, by sending out samples to folk like you and me, and asking us what we think of them. All that ..."
