Product Reviews and Transparency
In the realm of beauty and skincare, authenticity and transparency are of paramount importance. At You Need a Nutritionist, we value our readers and their trust above all else. To maintain that trust, we want to take a moment to shed light on a few key aspects of our content, specifically regarding PR samples, sponsored posts, and affiliate links.
As a beauty blogger, I’m fortunate to receive PR samples from various brands for review on my blog. However, it’s essential to know that I’m equally passionate about purchasing beauty products myself. I have a deep, personal interest in cosmetics, skincare, and everything related to beauty. Hence, when you visit my blog, you’ll encounter a delightful mix of products, whether they were sent to me or bought by me.
Regardless of the source of a product, I commit to providing you with my unfiltered, unbiased opinions. Honesty is my policy, and I’m dedicated to giving you an authentic perspective on the items I review. In most cases, I make it a point to mention the origin of a product directly within the blog post. For instance, I might state, “the team from xxx sent this to me” or “I acquired this at an event.” However, if you ever find yourself curious about the origins of a specific product, don’t hesitate to reach out to me via Twitter, where I’m always available for a friendly chat: @youneedanutritionist.
Occasionally, I accept sponsored posts on my blog. It’s important to clarify that I don’t entertain pre-written content. I take pride in creating my own posts, and I believe this is the best way to ensure the quality and authenticity of the content I share. When such posts are featured on my blog, they will always be clearly labeled as “sponsored posts” or “this post was written in collaboration with…”. Transparency remains a guiding principle in all of my sponsored content.
You may come across affiliate links on my blog. These are a means through which I can receive a commission. All the links featured on You Need a Nutritionist are processed through a service that converts them into affiliate links when a merchant program is available. This means that if you decide to purchase a product I’ve recommended via one of these links, I receive a small commission.
It’s important to note that this process is entirely automatic, and I usually have no prior knowledge, before publishing, of whether a specific link will be converted to an affiliate link. My primary focus is always on reviewing and presenting products that I genuinely like and believe in. The inclusion of affiliate links is intended to offer you convenience by providing additional information and direct purchase options. I would never add a link solely for the purpose of generating affiliate clicks; the integrity of my content and your trust are paramount.
