Reviews rule for me - any item.

I read ONLY the negative reviews as I find them to have an opinion I'm more interested in than the IT WAS GREAT type of review.

Reviews are extremely important.  If a negative review is repeated several times you'd better pay attention!  I find them extremely informative and dependable.

Re: How important are the reviews to you?

I do look at reviews and find that I do take them into consideration.  If there are all negative reviews, I probably won't purchase something.  If reviews are not specific, such as -- nice blouse for the money -- or something like that -- I don't pay much heed to that and don't find it helpful.  If there are more good than bad reviews, than I will usually order the item.  No matter how great an item is, there will be people who don't like it.

The reviews are important enough to me to have saved me a LOT of money.

Very important.  I go with the majority.  If ten people say a top runs small and one says it is true to size I go with the runs small review.  As for skincare I try to find reviews with my kind of skin.  Reviews really affect my buying.

Re: How important are the reviews to you?

I've found I am happier with my purchases when I've read the reviews. When I impulsively buy some new product with no reviews posted yet, it doesn't always work out. So, I try not to be worried about whether they may run out of something and wait to see some reviews. If it's a great product, they will bring it back at some point and there is absolutely nothing I have to get immediately.
