    Hi all, I've learnt a lot the past 2 weeks from everyone. Thanks for being so welcoming to a 'newbie' such as myself! Would love to know how 'review of the month' works and people's experiences from being picked?! Do you just get recognition or prizes and how do you and others access your ROTM? Thanks all x.

    The best review from each month wins a voucher for £100 in Lovehoney money, and then there are also three runner-up prizes of 2000 Lovehoney points (£4). It's a bit of a steep drop in prize money, but it's better than a kick in the nuts. 🙂

    As all the reviews are moderated before being published the team grade them from 1 to 5 (5 being the best) and all of the 5s get put to one side for Leanne to look through at the end of the month. Out of this shortlist she then selects the winner(s).

    They're announced through the Lovehoney blog, and you can see the past ones grouped together under the 'competition' section (though a few are missing due to various reasons, but they're mostly there) -

    If you're looking for ways to write a good review and be in with a chance of the £100 then there's this link -

    There's also this recent(ish) thread that has some good discussion about what people look for in a good review, as well as what people to choose to include/omit when writing them -

    https://www.lovehoney.co.uk/community/forums/off-topic/1723403-reviewing-reviews/

    And this next thread has some good points about what to include in lingerie reviews -

    Hope this helps. 🙂

    Please help...!

    I would just like to know why a review is not noted for 'every' month on the 'ROTM' competition thread? At the moment they seem to be posted every two months.

    I would be so grateful if Leanne or anyone on here could explain the reason behind this for me, just a little confused that's all x 😞 Thank you very much.

    For the same reason there is nothing currently on the tester list. When things get too busy (or Leanne has time off), less essential things get put on the back burner.

    When there are massive sales on the warehouse is so busy. Last year during a sale I remember reading that customer care staff and experts were helping out. ROTM is fabulous. It gets the reviews that makes Lovehoney unique and it give us all incentive to do detailed reviews. You don't find reviews like you do on here. Some are hilarious! Love it!

    I am a big fan of it, I once won £4 on it and used it to buy a candle. I'm also really nosy and like seeing what other people are buying.

    Yeah, it does look they've skipped another one. Leanne did say July's was going to be delayed, but they must have decided to go straight to August's. That's a bit odd. I didn't think companies could run a competition and then not give out the prize?

    It is because of my recent trip to the hospital again. Unexpected but happened so health was top priority recently sadly.

    This and recent unfortunate circumstances. 

    I am hoping I am back with no more need for hospital stays, but I said this before and jinxed myself. 

    So, as it stands I am  back and in full swing. I have some more tests coming up, so hopefully, this will determine I am back for good or longer this time without the need for ambulance rides! 

    Apologies that this has upset some of you, but a decision had to made on what could be covered from my workflow and what could not. 

    Thank you for your understanding

    I think some things really are not important compared to your health! Take your time to get well!

    Health is always top priority, a competition really isn’t the most important thing. Glad your getting better Leanne! Hopefully no more doctors and hospitals for a while so you can get back on your feet 🙌🏻

    I'm so sorry for seeming impatient and not very considerate of this subject. I have only recently discovered why Leanne has been away and was quite new to a lot on the forum anyway.

    I'm glad I am aware of the delicate situation (by doing some reading on here) and wish Leanne all the very best wishes for getting well soon, and hopefully having less appointments.

    Sorry if I offended you Leanne (or anyone else). Glad I've got to know a bit more about you and the situation you have been through now. xx

    I know a competition isn't the 'be all and end all'.
