Product Reviews & Giveaways

Interested in having our family review your product? We would love to! The Reynolds Mom features natural, organic, eco-friendly, and family-friendly products and more through reviews, giveaways and features. Over 2 1/2 years of blogging has brought a considerably large following of mostly eco-conscious women/mom readers who value my honest, thorough opinions and keep coming back for more.

We're certainly open to trying out the "latest and greatest" products out there and sharing my findings with my readers. We love trying new things and telling a million people about it! In fact, we probably drive our family and friends crazy! Please keep in mind that we prefer natural products that encourage healthy living, but we're very open to products beyond that. Your anti-aging botox creme is probably not a great fit though. ;)

Our family consists of my husband, myself, and our 4 1/2 year old home schooled boy. We enjoy reviewing products, but also attending local California events, shows, and even restaurants. Please check out my reviews section for a listing of local happenings I've written about.

Product Review Policies 
Reviews are published free of charge. Review posts will include 200+ words with product details, my honest opinion, photos or images of the product, and links to your website and social media sites if requested. Further information:
  • I only post my HONEST opinions in my reviews and I cannot be swayed with any means of further compensation, incentive etc.
  • Review products MUST be full-size. I do not review samples and will not write a review if a sample is received.
  • Review products are for my family to keep and will not be returned for any reason.
  • I am not responsible for shipping costs associated with any review products.
  • I post ALL my reviews, even if they are considered negative.
  • You have the option of having me not post my review only if the product received is defective, but I will not return any review product that is received as defective.
  • Reviews are published within 2-6 weeks of receiving the review product. This depends entirely on the amount of reviews I have ahead of yours, and how busy my personal life is. I am a mom first and foremost! If you have a specific time frame in mind, please let me know and I'll see what I can do!
  • Website reviews, press releases, and any posts without a review product are not published for free and require agreed upon compensation.

    Giveaway Policies
    Allowing me to host a giveaway is a great way to engage my readers with your product and to further brand recognition. Giveaways are hosted by me FREE of charge when posted with a review.

    {Please contact me for fee rates if you'd like me to host a giveaway only, without a review.}
    • Giveaways run for 1-2 weeks. If you have a specific time frame in mind, please let me know and I will work with you.
    • Once the giveaway ends, I will contact the winner(s) to obtain shipping information for their prize. I will email you with this information for prize fulfillment.
    • Prizes must be shipped directly to the winner(s) by you, no exceptions. Do not ship prizes to me with the review product for any reason. I will not ship prizes to winners. Please ship prizes within 1-4 weeks.
    • Due to FTC guidelines, I cannot offer extra/bonus/optional entries to an entrant for making a purchase of any kind.
    • Due to Facebook Promotion guidelines, I cannot offer extra/bonus/optional for, or ask my readers to, "like" a photo, upload a photo to your wall, or comment on your wall or photos. I can, however, offer extra entries for "liking" your Facebook page.
