It's really difficult for me to have a nice balance because I know that some people prefer to have the info from the product page listed in the review as well, but others don't like it. Personally, I don't like it because it's just as easy to look at the page and I want to know stuff about the product that I can't get from the page, like experiences. Any suggestions on things to mention for reviews on lotions? I got myself some motion lotion and I plan on mentioning obvious things like how well it worked and how it tastes...it's a toughy though, because I let me roommate put some on her hand and taste it and she thinks it's gross, but I think it's good for an edible lotion. They usually don't taste amazing...they are lotions after all.
I write my reviews (I try to anyway) as if the person reading the review has never
read a sex toy or product review before, AND I include things in the review for the more experienced toy user to take from it, too.
While using a product for an alternative use is always good to include
in your review, a review should always include how the product worked as its intended usage
. Meaning, including "Motion Lotion" as a massage oil (which with all the glycerine, I can't imagine it not being a mess) would be fine, but you would also have to include the details of how it works as a sexual lubricant
as that is its intended purpose.
For instance, I am in the market for a silicone lube, to use as a hair defrizzer. However, I don't use silicone lubes because of all the silicone toys I have, so although I might BUY a silicone lube to use for hair product, I wouldn't request one as an assignment, unless I'd be willing to test it at least 5 or 6 times (sans silicone toys) in order to write the review properly.
as many reviews from high ranking and up an coming reviewers who usually get good votes will help you hone your writing skills, as will working with your mentor and if you need it, an other mentor after that.
ps. I personally do want much of the stuff included on the Product Page. I like to read the review in its entirety and I hate flipping back and forth, so I like to see a mention of size, circumference, ingredients, lube compatibility, storing and cleaning suggestions, etc.
