The other day I looked at my Facebook Page where I routinely post when I have a new review of a story up on advicesisters.com. To my amazement, a woman posted that her “toddler” got a rash from one of the products I wrote about. I was aghast! Advicesisters.com has never written about products for babies let alone children.I never thought I’d be writing this, but Before You Use Any New Product, You Should Really Read This!
I really believe that most people are smart enough to know that when you have precious new skin on a baby or toddler, you need to take the advice of your pediatrician above and beyond anyone else’s recommendation. Whatever your age, know that each person is unique. Our skin, hair, and medical conditions are not the same as everyone else. Therefore, all reviews are subjective, based on the reviewer’s individual profile. What works for one person might not work as well for the next person. Or, worst-case scenario, the product someone loves, might not agree with someone else at all. If you are ever concerned about a product we write about on advicesisters.com don’t just take our advice. Check with your doctor or healthcare professional first.
Safety is in Your Hands as Well as Mine:
On advicesisters.com I don’t write about things I think are harmful. Perhaps since my reviews are mainly positive, it appears as though I don’t dislike anything. But that isn’t the case. Advicesisters.com has lots of samples offered. I don’t write about all of them. only the ones I think could be useful. I am not obligated to write something good about a product I think might be harmful. I wouldn’t write anything about that kind of product at all.
The companies advicesisters.com works with are spending lots of money to test their products and ensure that they are safe. That said, someone might still have a bad reaction to something. I test products on myself. I regularly make it a point to tell readers that what works for me might not work the same way for them. Furthermore, not all reviews are honest. Mine are. After reviewing thousands of products of all types for decades, I feel confident that most of the items suggested on advicesisters.com are good ones.
One more thing: advicesisters.com isn’t an E-commerce site. We build awareness. That is our goal.
We do offer free links to an official website where readers can get more information and/or purchase products. When we host advertising of any kind it is marked as such. We have always disclosed before it was even a thought to demand it from online media. However, you are encouraged to read our privacy and disclosure policy ( https://advicesisters.com/privacy-policy/ ).
Value is Subjective:
Value is subjective, but advicesisters.com couldn’t continue the website if everyone felt that it didn’t provide any quality or value. We do a lot of product review stories because our readers love them. But we have a full advice section and plenty of informational stories. People read our stories to learn something. If they wanted to purchase a product they probably wouldn’t click directly on a link we provide. Sites like advicesisters.com provide awareness. But most people need to think about what they’re buying first. Then they may go to an official website. Popular today are cashback sites where they might save some money.
Contact is Key:
I am sorry someone had a bad result on a child, but the fault isn’t ours, it is the person who put a product on her child without thinking about whether it was appropriate for children or not. However, I cringed that she wrote this in a public forum. I am always happy to communicate with someone. If you ever need to tell us something I am always open to it good bad or neutral. But please use our contact form.
If you would like to contribute something positive to our Recommendations from Readers Section please use the contact form.
