By being a member you agree to always share your uncensored opinion - that is to always be honest, never mislead and always try to provide valuable and authentic opinions.
In order to help other members and people who use the reviews and opinions of members, we need to make sure that all our members appropriately Disclose that you have received a free product from the Brand Power Home Tester Club.
How do I disclose?
We all know that the best things in life are free, but please make sure others know that to give us your uncensored opinion the Brand Power Home Tester Club gave you the free product. So please make this clear to others when you are sharing your experience of the Product.
