Being 100% transparent across my content is of utmost importance to me. The number one one goal of my blog will always be to provide you my honest opinions on the topic discussed, regardless of any compensation received. Please read the following for more information on my review policies
Beauty & Skincare reviews
Skincare by nature is very subjective, so it’d be impossible for me to review products without having my own biases regarding the usage experience. Unless you have the same biases (eg. prefers fragranced products or a certain finish), take those opinions as nothing more than my personal preferences. However I assure you that my reviews are always honest and my analysis of ingredients objective. If I find research supporting an ingredient’s claims, I will list those out, and likewise if there is limited data to back up those claims, I will be forthcoming as well.
In my reviews I like to look at the whole picture, which includes the brand itself. This is another part of the review that will be subjective, as I may feel strongly about a certain brand based on their ethos, customer service, or even their marketing tactics. You don’t need to agree with my opinions, but I believe that awareness and knowledge are key to making an informed purchasing decision.
Samples, Sponsorships & Affiliate Links
Unless otherwise mentioned, all products/services mentioned on the blog have been purchased with my own money. I don’t get any money or kickbacks directly for writing these specific posts or reviews, I do it because it’s fun and I have a lot of opinions.
Occasionally brands will reach out and provide free products for me to try, and in return I will share my detailed and 100% honest review on the blog. These samples are always disclosed at the bottom of the post. Once in a while brands will pay me to write a sponsored post, however these are rare as I’m very picky about them and will only agree to work on ones whose values align with the blog and can benefit you, the readers. All sponsored posts will be disclosed at the bottom of the post.
Affiliate links are used generously on this blog, both in sponsorship and organic posts, and as such they will not be explicitly marked. Each time you click on an affiliate link and make a purchase, I receive a small commission from the seller in return. I do my best to research the lowest price of the product possible and provide those links in my posts, but you are no obligated to click on them in any way. Furthermore, making a purchase from an affiliate link won’t cost you anything extra, so each click is much appreciated as it helps pay for the hosting of this blog.
