Champions of choice, transparency, and support
RealFriends are a select group of RealSelf community members who have been chosen because of their demonstrated commitment to sharing their own experiences, and going above and beyond by welcoming and supporting other members.
Evangelists of the RealSelf Mission
They believe in and promote the RealSelf mission of helping others make confident decisions by sharing their own experiences.
Model Community Members
RealFriends actively participate in the community. They adhere to the Community Guidelines and keep the conversations helpful and supportive.
Friends in Deed
In addition to sharing the intimate details of their own experiences, RealFriends continue to be there for other members throughout their journeys.
RealFriends can be identified by the blue RealFriend badge on their profile pages and next to their usernames on comments they make.
They are eligible for the RealFriends Rewards program, in which they receive product samples, special discounts, and more.
RealFriends get special invites and sneak peeks of new site features, and play an active role in shaping the future of RealSelf.
