My Blogging Policy

Below is an outline of my personal blogging policy (including disclosure). This is a general guide to my approach to blogging and my personal stance on matters such as PR samples, advertising and sponsored posts.

The bottom line for me is that any opinion expressed on this blog is 100% mine, and 100% honest. This does not always mean that it will be the same as others or 100% positive, but that’s what makes the world an interesting place.
READERS:

Dearest lovely readers, who take the time to read and comment on this blog – please be assured that any reviews posted will always be totally honest. All products that have been sent to me for consideration for review will be marked with a *.

From time to time this blog may feature sponsored posts – where these are run I will clearly label them as sponsored so it is clear. For those that are unclear, a sponsored post is a form of advertising on blogs where paid for content is put forward by a brand to be included. Whilst I will consider these, please be assured that I will NEVER accept payment for an opinion and sponsored posts will still only ever run where I have full control over what is written. I will never recommend a product in exchange for payment.

In regards to positive reviews of products sent for free by brands/PR companies I would like to stress that these will always honest but please remember that it is possible to genuinely feel positive about a product that was sent for free – a positive review doesn’t mean that it isn’t honest.

PR/BRANDS/SAMPLES POLICY:

I am open to approaches from brands/PR agencies who think they have something that might be appropriate for the blog.

However, if you are a brand or PR agency then please do note that any product sent for consideration for review will be THOROUGHLY tested and reviewed 100% HONESTLY.

If you are happy to comply with this policy and have a relevant product that you feel might work well on this blog then please get in touch via jen@beautyjunkielondon.com
