When did you first sign up? How old is chick advisor? What improvements have you seen over the years? What makes you stay?
I'm relatively new. Just a few months.

I signed up about a year ago, and I think ChickAdvisor started in 2006! There has definitely been more opportunities available for members now! Hopefully we'll be able to see an app in the future as well! I stayed because I really loved the supportive environment and of course, writing and reading reviews. The review opportunitiesmakeme stay as well :) Welcome!

Signed up up in January. It's been a slow climb to gather points. Coultlee ... what strategy did you use as I see you massive points only from signing up in December!

I signed up about 5-6 years ago when things were still pretty new here. The concept was still the same where you needed to write consistent reviews in order to get chosen to receive a product.

One thing that was different is that they used to have weekly contests on their blog where you could win makeup or skincare prizes. I won a few times and the prizes ranged from drugstore to high end products. I wish they would have that still. It was lots of fun, especially for those not really into using gift cards.

The badges came later on and they are still what they are to this day. I do see an increase in the amount of products they have up for review now. It's nice that more chicks can get the opportunity to try something out. In terms of getting chosen for a product review, I've been pretty lucky and have tried out quite a bit with ChickAdvisor's help. The forum has also been more active in the last year or so. It's so amazing to see how we've come together and formed a support group here.

I only see this site getting better and better with the years ahead! The fact that they've been able to include special events like the virtual cooking with Christine Cushing or other social get togethers puts them apart from other review sites out there. This is a wonderful place to be online!!

Thank you on Feb 28, 2016 @ 07:59 pm

Thanks everyone for the input. I was just curious :)
@rainbow thanks for all the detail! I appreciate it. It's cool to hear from ppl who have seen changes and have stuck with it.
I really have to start writing more reviews - I've been super busy and haven't organized my makeup desk yet so it's a disaster right now and I don't even remember what I own. If I would stop shopping maybe it wouldn't be so messy hehe.
I enjoy writing and reading reviews but I get stuck in the chick forum chatting to all you lovely ladies!

I've been a member since 2009 and have to say Chick Advisor is my favourite review site. It's not uncommon to recieve a direct message from and to have a conversation with one of the staff which is really nice.

As pretty rainbow said, they used to have weekly contests that were a lot of fun. I won a few times,which was a bonus, and a lot of great conversations came from the contests.

I've had the opportunity to review a lot of products through the review club, and have only ever not completed one (The second cooking class). I ended up going into labour though, so I'm sure my excuse is valid!

Thanks for sharing. Sounds like you've had a wonderful experience. I'm having so much fun. And I'll say labor is a darn good excuse lol

I have been here since December. Too bad those contests weren't still going on!
