How to Write a Quality Product Review

Edited by: Angelica on 7/3/18

Smiley360 is powered by product reviews. The reason we’re able to send you products for free is because in return, we expect to receive your feedback on those products—and your feedback is valuable! Your reviews matter to us, the brands and other consumers.

For that reason, we encourage you to write the best quality reviews possible!

A quality review should be:

  1. Detailed
  2. Informative
  3. Helpful
  4. Authentic
  5. Honest

If your review is all of these things, it helps other consumers make a decision on whether or not they should spend their hard-earned money on a product.

Writer’s Block?

When writing a product review, it’s easy to get stumped on what to say. We find that it helps to ask ourselves questions such as:

  • How can I describe this product to someone who has never tried it before?
  • What are the pros and cons of this product?
  • Do I like how this product looks/feels/tastes/performs?
  • What benefit did the product bring to my life?
  • What’s missing from this product that would make it better?
  • Do I agree or disagree with other people’s opinions of this product? Why?
  • Will I continue to purchase this product in the future?

Thanks for the great community.

  3. I’m trying to take in and apply everything I have learned from the Membership Guide Blog. I just can’t wait to get a mission to try something new.

  4. Just received my first product to try ( Dimetapp) and could not of came at a better time to try it on our lil one 
    who started with the sniffles.

  5. I definitely need to pay heed to these tips.  Often, I am in a hurry when posting because I’m a busy woman on the go.

    I know good grammar, the correct product name, etc. are very important.

    I love trying new products and writing reviews – I hope my reviews help someone with a future product purchase.

  7. I am somewhat new to Smiley, and would like to include blogging in my missions. However, I cannot find anywhere instructions on how to do that. I wrote on my own blog, but Smiley can’t open the links. How can we get credit for blogging?

  8. I have emailed Smiley twice regarding the blogging issue (not being able to link a blog), and have never heard back from them.

  9. I love all these posts….they have helped me so much when I was unsure of what to do next.  I am looking forward to products arriving at my door so I can try out what ive learned!

  10. Used one bottle of the free samples received from Smiley 360 to help me stay alert while studying for mid-term exams! Now to save the last for finals! Not a huge fan of energy drinks but It just gave me that little extra boost to help me make it a COUPLE more hours to study THAT MUCH more! Thank You Smiley 360 for the opportunity to give this a try! Loving it! No jitters!

  11. this is a great project. Learn how you can reduce waste like Scotties and reduce our carbon footprints! Smiley 360 + free samples=Happy mom & kids. Plus, who doesn’t like getting free samples and learning something new in the process! Thank you very much! 🙂

  12. I revieiwd the mattress. I would definately buy it. It would give me a great nights sleep.  I found it at a mattress store near me. I would recommend this mattress to anyone looking to buy one. Very good quality and the price is good. The dual top mattress topper is for sure a great buy for a good nights sleep

  13. I feel this is an excellent way of trying new products & being able to voice your opinion is totally awesome & a great benefit for the consumer to see pro’s & con’s on a product they may be interested in purchasing but is not sure about the product. I’m new at this & very excited about reviewing & posting my experience. I heard about Smiley360 through FaceBook & thought this would be a good way to help people by posting my reviews. I have some questions on a mission I was doing & will contact Smiley360. I know this is a great company & love to see all the positive reviews that are posted. Thank you Smiley 360 YOU ROCK!:)

  14. I manage (admin) several facebook pages, I would not want to give access to those pages only my personal page.  Can I connect to facebook with a guarantee that the other pages I manage will not be affected?
