Disclaimer/Privacy Policy

When working in retail, the norm is to sell products regardless of the customer’s actual need. The concept of commission incentivizes higher sales. However, in both past and present, many beauty consultants believe in fostering customer relationships built on trust. Personally, I prefer selling what customers genuinely require rather than pushing unnecessary items. I treat customers as I’d want to be treated as a buyer. This approach has nurtured enduring friendships and ongoing cosmetic advice, with many still using products I recommended.

This blog centers on trust. My product opinions are unreservedly honest; I’ll convey if something doesn’t work for me. I value my work’s authenticity, and my writings are my unwavering truth. Most of the featured products are self-purchased, some remain from my past employment, though I’m now unaffiliated. You might find PR samples, testers, or gifts reviewed here, treated no differently than purchased items. Brand influence doesn’t dictate my words, and any paid content is visibly disclosed.

I solely accept samples of products I’d personally buy or am intrigued by. My skin type is combo/oily and can be dehydrated, but my positive experience doesn’t guarantee the same for everyone. I’m anatomically and physiologically trained with beauty/skincare expertise. While I can’t give personalized advice without seeing your skin, I offer general suggestions and recommend researching product and ingredient details. Different skin reacts variably to products. While I have issues with Glycolic and Rosehip Oil, others may find them beneficial in different formulations.

Photographs on this blog are usually mine; if otherwise, I’ll credit them. If you wish to use my photos, please ask for permission. As for cookies, they help me understand reader preferences, but I respect your privacy. Cookies are small website data sent to your computer for analysis.
