To exclude certain results check the red box on the right of the filter you do not want (e.g. "Reviews") and then click "APPLY FILTERS"

Applied filters display at top left under Active Filters. Click the lock button to keep a filter on throughout the search session.

Once you have applied filters they will appear at the top left under "Active Filters" - click the lock button on a filter to keep it throughout your searching session
