Disclaimer

Hope, Freedom, Love is still a small hobby blog; a place to share reviews of products that I love. However, I think it's important that I have a disclaimer and that it includes as much information as possible.

PR / Press Samples and Coverage 
Hope, Freedom, Love, is a press and PR friendly blog. Keeping up with the beauty news as it breaks, and learning about brand new brands, has always been a big passion of mine. This means that I am frequently sent press samples for consideration. 

To be completely transparent, since March 2015, all products I receive as press samples have and will be marked with *. This includes all products sent to me from brands or PR companies. This also includes items from event goody bags. This does not include gifts or giveaway prizes. These reviews will still always be my honest opinion and not influenced in anyway. 

Please note that press samples do not guarantee coverage on my blog and I only accept samples for things I'd buy myself. All opinions on products and items will always be my own. 

I don't accept advert posts on Hope, Freedom, Love.

However, from time to time, I do accept sponsored content. This involves me writing all aspects of the content myself, so all the prose and my thoughts are entirely my own. All sponsored content will be marked clearly (adhering to the ASA guidelines) with "This post is sponsored by XXX".

Affiliate Links 
Sometimes I use affiliate links in my blog posts, these will usually be in the form deep links/hyperlinks on a products name. Clicking these affiliate links give me a tiny percentage of the purchase if you choose to buy something from the link. Normally I use Affiliate Window for this service, and occasionally I also use Amazon Associates. Please note that my blog posts are never affiliate driven. 

Sidebar Advertising 
The advertising displayed in my sidebar are manually added advertisements from my affiliate account. I only choose to display adverts for brands/products that I'm a fan of. Clicking these links work the same as an affiliate link. I use Affiliate Window for this service.

Facebook / Twitter
I run Facebook and Twitter accounts associated with my blog. I like to share news and information on these, such as sales or new product releases. I do not get sponsored or receive incentives to feature this news, nor have I ever been approached to do so. This is purely a beauty fan sharing exciting information. From January 2015, If I ever share affiliate links via Twitter I will mark them with *AL. 

Skin Type
I have oily/combination skin that is prone to blemishes and redness. Therefore products I buy tend target these skin concerns. My skin is naturally very fair, I tend to be a very light shade of foundation and my skin has pink undertones.

Hair Type
My hair is naturally quite oily and tends to get oily quickly. I currently have permed hair which means I have chemically treated hair which creates curls. 

I hope this is clear/makes sense but if you have any requests, clarifications or questions, send me an email via my contact page and I'll get back to you ASAP!
