As a journalist and blogger, I often get sent products to test and review. I also attend press events, launches and showcases, which often come with samples/gifted products, and am sometimes invited to sample treatments and procedures (ie. facials, teeth whitening etc.).
The majority of the products I write about on my blog are gifted for these purposes, and it’s always my intention to be transparent about the reviews I write. At the top of every post, I include an Ad Info disclosure, which looks something like this:
[Ad info: This is not a sponsored post. The products are gifted press samples.]
However, please be assured that the reviews I give are genuine, and represent to the best of my knowledge and experience the products themselves. If you have any comments, questions or enquiries, please leave a comment below or message me via email/social, and I’ll do my best to answer.
