Darn it!

Krissers Krissers
So I did two new reviews yesterday and today, one I'm getting all "Extremely Useful" on which feels great! I think its one of my best reviews yet, however my other review just got a "Somewhat Useful" Vote! =( DARN! It's been a long time sense I've gotten that low of a vote on a review. I was wondering if you guys/gals can take a look at my other review and give me some pointers on what could have improved this review. It's a warming oil and I have a hard time reviewing lubes/oils/etc.
Thanks!

Take a look!

Reviewing lubes in Extended Format has always helped me. It makes you think about all aspects of the product. Also, I try to review products from a more subjective view.

There are some places where you could give more detail:

"This oil is best used for oral sex, it doesn't warm well unless lightly blown on, and the flavor is amazing"

I would add more detail. Add in why/how/what to each statement.

"This oil is best used for oral sex, because . . . (Can you use it as something else? Why or why not?)
It doesn't warm well unless lightly blown on, which is a plus/downside, because . . . (Any tips? Why would/wouldn't this be a good feature?)
And the flavor is amazing. It tastes like . . . (Did it taste like real apple pie? Was the flavor more artificial or realistic? Does it remind you of something else?)"

I think you captured the other aspects, such as clean-up, very well. I'd try using the Extended Format, because it really helps to give you writing prompts. I enjoy it because it makes me think about, and include, all aspects of the product.

When I first started on EF, I had the problem with getting downvoted. Most of my reviews are on lubes. I went through and rewrote my reviews after reading more on here. It takes some practice, but once you get into the habit of adding massive amounts of detail, it comes naturally.

Have you considered the Mentor Program?

I've been through the Mentor Program once already and it helped me A LOT. My reviews are defiantly improved but I have been thinking about going back because of the difficulty I have with lubes. But I never really use or enjoy lube that much when I do get it, so I guess that makes it a little more tricky too. However, I've already done reviews on all the lubes I've tried! =) But the Mentor program is great! Thanks for the Advice! =)

Don't let one or two bad votes bum you out, it happens. It's when all of them are bad that you need to re-look at the review.

Aside from the mentor program, since you are only having issues with the lubes you might ask someone that does a lot of them to check it for you. Many of the contributors are happy to look at reviews for folks.

I'd love to check it out! I think some people just like to give a low rating. I really have started noticing. I get some people don't find it as useful as others, but still. Anyways, lubes and stuff are really hard to provide tons of info on so you shouldn't be too hard on yourself. I mean, you can only say so much about em'.
