When I write a sponsored article or shoot a sponsored video, I’m receiving payment for the work and time I put into testing the product, writing the article, and editing the content. I am NOT receiving payment for a favorable review. I share my honest thoughts. I always disclose per USA FTC guidelines. I do not offer text links and outside guest posts. Please email me to discuss your collaboration idea.

My review rules

  • If you’re contacting me about beauty, it must be cruelty free. This means not tested on animals anywhere in the world. See my cruelty free list.
  • Not every sample that I receive will be featured. I only accept things I think I will like, but if I don’t like something, I probably will not feature it.
  • I always share my honest opinions and experiences with a product. I try to find positive and negative things to say about every review. My audience trusts me and expects this.
  • It takes time for me to review a product and then put it on my editorial calendar.
  • I don’t guarantee a specific time frame for a review unless it is a sponsored post.
  • If I’m reviewing skincare it takes me about 4 weeks to test out a product.

These are the cruelty free questions the Phyrra audience needs answered about your brand.

  1. Is your beauty brand cruelty free?
  2. Are the finished products tested on animals by the company, a parent company, a third party or an affiliate company?
  3. Are the products tested on animals during the production process by the company, a parent company, a third party or an affiliate company?
  4. Do you have documents from your ingredient suppliers to show that they are not testing on animals for your brand or any other brand?
  5. Does your manufacturer purchase any ingredients from laboratories that conduct tests on animals? Do you have documents to support this?
  6. Are the products sold in any markets where animal testing is required by local law and regulations (China, etc)?
  7. Are the products vegetarian? (no animals killed for the products – i.e. some forms of collagen, squalane, etc.)
  8. Are the products vegan? (i.e. product ingredients that come from animals like lanolin, honey, milk, etc. – being vegan is NOT necessary for my blog, but a bonus for my vegan readers)
  9. Is your company certified by Leaping Bunny? (NOT necessary, but definitely a nice thing! Find out how easy it is to get Leaping Bunny certified!)
