Ok, here’s the fuuuulllll deal.
Do not consider anything you read on SkinfullofSeoul (or my instagram and twitter) as a substitute for professional advice. My skin isn’t the same as yours, and what works for me may not work for you. I’m not an expert or a professional and cannot give professional advice on anything I write about. I can only share with you my experiences. All information is provided to the best of my knowledge, and is only intended for informational/entertainment purposes.
PR Samples & Gifts
I am frequently gifted product samples from brands or companies (which will clearly be marked on reviews). If I do decide to write about samples, all posts are written by me with my own, 100% honest opinions, not those of any company, group, affiliate or advertiser. This is true across all of my social media platforms including Instagram and Twitter. I will never promise favorable reviews in return for products or other forms of compensation.
SkinfullofSeoul is a hobby for me, and something I do out of passion. I have only written one “sponsored post” on skinfullofseoul.com, and a few on Instagram, but going forward have decided that is not the path for me. A “sponsored post” is one where financial compensation is provided. The writing (with regards to my posts) was no different in transparency/honesty compared to my regular posts, and this honesty policy was agreed upon with the company before I received products and produced posts.
I take testing seriously so that readers can understand how my opinions have formed, and be confident in the validity of my thoughts. Now that my network is fairly large, I get sent a lot of PR, and I frequently play with new products to get a feel for them and share first impressions. However for any products that I write full blog reviews about, I give ample testing time and ensure my conclusions are accurate. Generally speaking, although of course this is dependent on the products, my testing schedule is as follows:
|Cleansing Products||1 week min.|
|Toners/Essences/Serums||2-4 weeks min.|
|Creams and other products||2-3 weeks min.|
|Masks||1-2 time use|
Often when I write a review, I have been using the product longer than in that schedule. However those times listed are the minimum times before I share my final thoughts.
All content is mine unless otherwise stated.
You can share anything on this blog/my twitter/my instagram non-commercially, as long as there is always a link back to the original page, and it is not edited, added to, or changed in any way.
