The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog.

I am sometimes compensated to provide opinions on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though I receive compensation or complimentary products/services for posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinion, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own and based on my experience based on my own skin and hair type.  The views and opinions expressed on my blog are purely my own and I consider myself extremely honest and a trustworthy beauty source. I would never endorse or encourage the promotion or sale of a product that does not meet my standards or exceed my expectations.

I reserve the right to not review/post products for any reason and I do not guarantee positive reviews on press samples or services. In keeping with full disclosure for the sake of the FTC and the trust of my readers, sponsored posts or press samples are clearly labeled in the credits or captions of the post. Products or services chosen for review will be in accordance to my skin and hair type, the theme of the blog and for the benefit of my readers.

Due to the volume of requests I receive, I cannot guarantee a time frame when your product will appear in a post, though I do try to adhere to the “Product Review Timeline” as close as possible.  While I make every attempt to review all products I receive, if for any reason I determine that your product cannot be reviewed, I will contact you to find another way to highlight your brand. Please understand press samples that are submitted for review are for consideration only and will not be returned.  For more information on what goes into every post please refer to the “Product Review Timeline” sheet.

I prefer to write about things I love, which is why the majority of reviews on my blog are positive. However, if there is a product that does not work for me, I will definitely advise my readers of the pros and cons.  I do try and put a lot of emphasis in explaining the texture, smell, color and other physical attributes of products to help each reader imagine and visualize using that product on themselves.

Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question. For any product or service you test out via my recommendation, please proceed with caution, and remember to consult a medical specialist if anything goes wrong. I will not be held responsible for anything that goes wrong if you were try a product based my recommendation.
