    I agree with all of these findings. I love to read reviews of a product before I buy it. I figure everyday women like me experience similar and different results, so it's awesome to get an idea of what I may be getting myself into by taking a risk when trying a new product. I especially love to read reviews about beauty and hair products. These influence me with my decisions whether to make a purchase or not. I'm not necessarily keen on celebrity endorsements because I don't trust whether it's a real review or not.

    I almost always check reviews especially before a big purchase.

    I prefer reading reviews by confirmed purchasers that list the pros and cons of buying a product. The review must be descriptive. Don't tell me it's perfect. Tell me why you feel it is perfect. Don't tell me you hate it and not to buy. List the reasons why you feel that way. No product is perfect for everyone. We all have different needs. I like to read reviews that tell me what I want to know. When I write reviews, I try to give all the facts, good or bad, and tell why, though a product might be great for me or not great for me, why it might be just right for someone else.

    I think this is true cause women do trust other women before they purchase things.

    I am always reading reviews on products before purchasing - sometimes on a daily basis! I read reviews completely, so that I'm able to weigh wether or not the negative reviews would actually be applicable to me or not.

    Yes, always read the reviews!

    Most of the time I do look for online reviews of a product or look to my friends for a recommendation so I totally believe this!

    I agree with all. But, Reviewer beware. Not all reviews are real. Some are paid for and some are Fake to promote or to put down a product or service. I look for reputable reviewers and I tend to steer clear of all positive or all negative reviewers or reviewers that have a few reviews and are basically one hit wonders.

    For sure! Not only do I look at reviews, I write them on nearly everything!

    I agree.. I read the opinions of others, and ask friends and family too.
