Monday, August 01, 2005



Although many of the items reviewed on Beauty Addict are purchased, the site accepts samples for review from brands and public relations representatives. Press samples submitted for review are for consideration only. Receipt of a product does not constitute a contract for a published review of the product, nor a guarantee of a favorable review.

All editorial content is written by the Author based on personal experience and results. Editorial content is not influenced by advertisers, affiliates, public relation firms, brand, or other individual unless otherwise noted.  Content is not preapproved by PR representatives or brands. Products from companies or representatives that wish to impose such limitations will not be accepted for review.

Beauty Addict does not accept monetary compensation for product reviews.


Beginning in October 2009, all items received from brands and PR representatives are disclosed as such, in compliance with FTC regulations. Each product mentioned on Beauty Addict carries its own disclosure notice, accessible by placing your mouse over the product link. These links are identifiable by bold pink text.

Additionally, a link to this disclosure page will appear on every page of the blog, and at the footer of each individual post.
