In the United States, it is required by the Federal Trade Commission for bloggers to disclose any compensation, endorsements, and advertising involved in a blog post. Even if it were not required, I feel that it is important for those who consumers seek advice and recommendation from, like bloggers/Youtubers/celebrities, to fully disclose any compensation or connection with a company when they are recommending a product. It fosters honesty, trust, open communication.
Below is my disclosure statement concerning any products featured and recommend to my readers on www.oliviaapplewhite.com.
As of September 3, 2016:
I am not financially compensated for my posts. I am not affiliated with any companies mentioned. The honest opinions expressed on www.oliviaaplewhite.com are completely my own based on my experience.
If I do ever mention or recommend a product I've received at no cost, whether as a gift or free sample, I'll mark that product with an asterik [*] .
Otherwise, all products and consumer goods mentioned or recommended by www.oliviaapplewhite.com have been purchased by myself.
I do not use affiliate links.
I can not guarantee that every product or method I mention or recommend will work for every single reader. We all have different skin, and we all react differently to products. Nothing on www.oliviaaplewhite.com shall be construed as providing dermatological, medical, or other such advice and you are always advised to seek the advice of a doctor, dermatologist, or suitable professional should you have any such concerns.
