3. [ad/affiliate] - there are affiliate links or trackable links attached to this video, these earn me a few pence when clicked (these appear as or after listed products), certain links are not affiliated and are purely there for you to click and find the product information faster, these may be trackable links by the page.

When working in retail it is the expectation that people will sell anything, whether the customer needs it or not. A commission is mentioned and of course the more you sell the better rewarded you are. Many beauty consultants and people in the industry believe then and now, that building a customer relationship on trust is the way forward. I was comfortable selling what my customers really wanted and needed and not to keep link selling to the next item. I treat people as I wish to be treated when I am buying a product. This trust in me from my customers meant years of friendship and cosmetic advice, many are still friends to this day and still use products recommended by me, many still ask for advice.
This blog is about trust, I am very honest in my opinions about products and how they work for me, if they don't, then I will tell you, it's as simple as that. This blog is my work and I value my work and the effort I put in, therefore it can only be my truest word that I write.
Mainly the products I feature on my blog I have purchased myself, some remain from my employment with Yves Saint Laurent, I no longer work for this company or have any affiliation with it. PR samples, tester products and gifts may feature on my blog, these are reviewed as any purchased product, my words are not prescribed by any brand and any paid posts will be clearly highlighted. I only accept samples of products I would actually buy myself or have an interest in the product, I turn down more than I accept. 
I will say that just because products may not suit me it does not mean that they will not suit someone else. I can only tell how they work with and on my skin, I shall do my best to describe why products are good, bad or indifferent so you can make an informed choice yourself. My skin type is combination/oily and can be dehydrated, but this does not mean that even if you are the same skin type that products I love will be ideal for you.  Although I am qualified in anatomy, physiology and a trained beauty/skincare consultant I can not give advice on your personal skin type without seeing it, I can give general recommendations and always suggest researching the product and ingredients.  Not all products work the same way for everyone, I have issues with Glycolic and Rosehip Oil, yet so many people love it - I just need to find a formulation that worked for me and my skin. 

PHOTOGRAPHS - on my blog are by me unless otherwise stated, if I use any visual that belongs to you and I haven't credited the work then let me know I will put it right. If you wish to copy, cut, paste, use, print, frame, display in a gallery any of my photo's, please ask first.
COOKIES - To ensure that I always do my best for you all when it comes to writing about products then I need to see what is viewed and by how many, this where cookies come in, please read below to understand the exact nature of and use of cookies by myself, Google and Skimlinks.
A little about the technology involved, cookies of the technology variety I'm afraid.
  • 'Cookies' are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer's hard drive while you are viewing a website.
  • Tracking/user analysis cookies. This allows me to see how many people are visiting this site and uses a third party service (such as Google Analytics and Quantcast) to do so.

  • Advertising: The advertising banners on this site come through my network AdSense and Skimlinks which supplies advertising from a range of approved digital partners. Occasionally these banners will use marketing cookies to show you adverts that you might be more interested in. This tracking system is anonymised and therefore it does not know who you are, it just uses the limited information available to it (via cookies) to serve you ads that may be relevant to you.
 You have the ability to accept or decline cookies using your web browser, but please be aware that it may negatively affect your experience of this site. Cookies can be removed or declined by changing your web browser settings. For more information please visit


Skimlinks works with Affiliate Networks to enable the connections between Publisher sites and Merchant sites. These networks use cookies to follow a user's click on a merchant link through to purchase and associating that back to the Publisher who earns a commission off the purchase. Affiliate Network cookies get set when a User clicks on a merchant or product link in the content of a Skimlinks Publisher site. Skimlinks does not have control over the Affiliate Network cookies.

Affiliate links are shown by the link - when clicked these take you to the page where the product may be bought, if you do then I earn a few pennies (literally) from the link to the site (affiliate), you are not obliged to follow the link, I add them to make finding the product easier.
