This one was a bit of a surprise and I just want to give a heads up to my fellow bloggers who might not know about this. Klout is a network that gives you a score for your social media influence and the amount of interaction you get on your social media networks for certain categories. I signed up for it about a year ago just out of curiosity as somebody in work had been talking about it.
I don’t know much about how the score is calculated but I would have thought my score was fairly average at 58. But I was delighted when I got an email to say I had received a Klout Perk based on my score in the beauty category. Excitingly the Klout Perk was from much loved brand Kiehls I was a little bit sceptical as I thought maybe I wouldn’t be eligible or that it was only for people in the UK or US but I filled out my form and hoped for the best! So I was delighted and surprised when this beautiful Kiehls parcel landed on my desk last week and I see a few of my fellow Irish beauty bloggers got it as well. Look how pretty!
I was delighted to see the beautifully wrapped package contained a full size product of Kiehl’s brand new Daily Reviving Concentrate! The box also contained a 4ml sample of the cult Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate which I have used before and really liked. The new product is designed as a facial oil to be worn during the day to help refresh and energise skin. It’s a different concept as I would tend to apply an oil at night but I can’t wait to try it out and will report back to you as soon as I’ve tried it for a few weeks.
So heads up to anybody who has a blog or is very active on a particular topic on social media, there’s no harm in signing up for Klout and you never know what kind of perk you could get. You’re not obliged to write about your perk but if you do you have to make sure you disclose it’s a sample which is best practice for a blogger anyway. You can find out more about Klout and see a summary of some of the previous perks here if you fancy giving it a try!
