This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. For questions about this blog, please contact Casey directly (firstname.lastname@example.org).
FTC Compliance: Beauty 101 and its authors comply fully with the latest FTC guidelines (see below for examples of different disclosures seen on Beauty 101). All affiliate links and links within any sponsored posts will ALWAYS remain “no follow” per FTC guidelines. NO EXCEPTIONS.
<< You will see this disclosure in a situation where a sponsored post is a regular post (written by me, my wording, 100% my opinions), but the brand pays me to ensure that the product does appear on the site, and within their timeline. All opinions will be my own and Beauty 101 will never accept compensation in exchange for a false positive review.
Instead of a button you may see something similar to this quoted at the bottom of top of the post “This post has been sponsored by COMPANY A, although I have been compensated for this post. All opinions are 100% my own” to signify a sponsored post.
<< You will see this disclosure button when the post includes links to certain products that are affiliate links and I may make a small commission if you choose to purchase the item(s) through my link. I only link to products I have tried and/or fully believe will be of use to my readers.
<< This disclosure will be used any time where the product in the post being talked about has been provided by a company or PR Firm for a review consideration and feature on Beauty 101. The opinions provided are 100% my own and I stay as objective as possible regardless of where the product(s) or service(s) came from. Please click here for Beauty 101’s review policy.
I am a full time employee of L’Oreal, specifically within Redken and Pureology Colour Care departments. You may see products from Redken/Pureology Serious Colour Care mentioned on this blog from time to time because I legitimately love both brands but I am under no expectation to post about them as part of my job. The opinions listed on Beauty 101 should be considered to be my own and are no way affiliated with the official opinions of Redken, Pureology Serious Colour Care, or L’Oreal.
