Affiliate Links

I may use affiliate links in my posts, which means that I get a small commission if you purchase through my links. You are not charged extra when you shop through my affiliate links and you are free to use the link or not as you choose.  If you do purchase through my links, it helps to subsidize the cost of operating this blog & I sincerely appreciate your support.  Posts containing affiliate links will include an “Affiliate Link” disclaimer button.

PR Samples/Products/Review

On occasion, I receive products from brands and public relations representatives for editorial consideration.  Posts will always indicate if the item was received from PR with a “PR Sample” disclaimer button.  Unless noted with a PR Sample button, the products reviewed on this blog were purchased by me.

Receipt of a product, whether solicited or unsolicited, does not constitute a contract for a published review.  My reviews are done based on my opinion of the products and results I’ve seen from using the product.  I will always give an 100% honest review based on my own experience with a product whether it is purchased by me or received from PR.


Occasionally, I work with Brands to bring you a Post.  As always, all opinions are my own and I only work with Brands when I have used their products and feel 100% confident in recommending them to readers of 40andholding Beauty Blog.

Advertising in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network will be identified as paid advertisements.
