This is my Disclaimer/Disclosure/Privacy Policy.

Phyrra is a USA-based cruelty-free beauty, gothic fashion, mental health, and lifestyle blog. Content on this blog is USA-centric, though I also cover brands from the UK, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and beyond.


Some products I love, you may hate. Some products I hate, you may love. All opinions about a product are honest and my own. I am not liable for any problems that you may have from trying a product that I review.  If you have any issues with any product you try, you should immediately contact your doctor. If you have any issues with a company you purchase from, I recommend you contact that company directly. If you cannot get satisfaction from the company directly, contact the Better Business Bureau and your credit card company or PayPal.

Public Relations

Although many of the items featured on Phyrra are purchased, this site also accepts press samples from brands and public relations representatives. Receipt of a product does not constitute a contract for a published review of the product. While Phyrra attempts to accept only products of interest in hopes of lessening negative reviews, this site does not guarantee a favorable review.

Reviews are done based on honest assessments of the products and content is not pre-approved by PR representatives or brands. Products that wish to impose such limitations will not be accepted for review without compensation and disclosure as a sponsored post. Unless compensated as a disclosed sponsored or advertorial post, Phyrra exercises full independence over product reviews. General receipt of a product, whether solicited or unsolicited, does not constitute a contract for a published review of the product or for the substance of any content produced that discusses the product. Beginning in October 2009, all items received from brands and PR representatives are disclosed as such.

Press samples are not payment and are not sponsored content. They are disclosed as press samples. Posts may contain a mix of press samples and items purchased by me. They are disclosed as such.

Advertorial or Sponsored Posts

Phyrra occasionally includes advertorial or sponsored posts. All such posts are disclosed as being advertorial, partnered with, brought to you by, or sponsored in the post, at the top of the post.


Phyrra accepts various paid items including (but not limited to) paid posts, sponsorships, brand ambassadorships, and advertising. Phyrra also accept products and trips for purposes of editorial review.

When Phyrra writes a sponsored post, Phyrra is receiving payment for the work put into researching and writing the article, the work put into taking photography or videos, and editing the content. Phyrra did NOT receive payment for a favorable review or positive outcome. What you read are the genuine thoughts expressed by Phyrra.

These items may influence the advertising content, links, or post topics of this blog, but it will never influence Phyrra’s honest opinions on any product or subject. The views and opinions expressed on Phyrra and all related social media accounts are purely Phyrra’s. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

If a reader clicks on a link or advertisement on Phyrra and subsequently makes a purchase on that website, or uses an affiliate link on Phyrra, Phyrra may receive some small form of compensation (usually pennies on the dollar) from that company or website.
