Full Disclosure

Currently, I'm working on a few product reviews for you, and would like to preface that with a note on disclosure. 

I'm on a budget: I'm a college student, and on a budget that reflects this. Occasionally, I am sent a product for review. These are almost always sample sizes. If I am sent a product, it will be clearly noted in the post, and does not influence my opinion in any way.

I'm selective: Not every product I purchase or receive will be featured in a review. I try to share only positive experiences. There are exceptions to this rule, but generally I will review products I liked.

It takes time: Once I purchase or receive a product, I like to use it for quite a bit of time before sharing my thoughts. For cosmetics this may mean a week. Hair products are often a little longer at two weeks or more. As for backpacks, equipment, and such, it may take a months to come to a conclusion. I want my reviews to be as fair as possible, and if I haven't given a product enough time before sharing, the post will clearly state "first impressions".

About me: The opinions in my reviews are my own. That being said, everyone is different and results may vary. Using the products I review, as with any other  review, will not make you look, smell, act, or seem like me (thank god!) I will, however, try to include any information you may need to make an decision about whether or not this product may work for you.

As most results are specific to the individual using the product, I'd like you to meet me:
Skin type: Seasonal (combination with occasional break outs in the summer, dry in the winter)
Hair type: Wavy/Curly, Dry, Frizzy
Activity level: Active
Diet: As clean as possible

*I am not an expert in, well... anything. The opinions here are my own and are not meant to be taken in place of professional advice when necessary.


  1. Alright! Well I"m looking forward to these reviews!! :-D

    1. I'm looking forward to sharing them :)

  2. I always had a love/hate relationship with reviews in my Youtube days. Some people really push for fake positives!

    1. I agree, many reviews sound like advertisements! Most of my reviews are positive, because I am so picky with the products I spend my money on and therefore what I choose to review. I would never recommend something I don't use myself. The trust of my readers is very important to me, and I wouldn't want to jeopardize that. Thank you for your comment!

  3. Hello Kate your blog is fantastic.
