Public Relations

Beauty and Fashion Tech and Girl Gloss both accept products for review from brands and public relations representatives. Unless compensated as a disclosed sponsored or advertorial post, we exercise full independence over product reviews. 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.

While both sites attempt to accept only products of interest in hopes of lessening negative reviews, neither sites guarantees a favorable review, or any review at all. Reviews are done based on honest assessments of the products and content will not be provided for preapproval by PR representatives or brands, nor will reviews be edited after the fact based on requests to do so. Products that wish to impose such limitations will not be accepted for review but may be eligible for inclusion as a sponsored post with compensation. Editorial timeline is currently 6-8 weeks from receipt of a product. Beginning in October 2009, all items received from brands and PR representatives are disclosed as such per the FTC guides.

Advertorial and Sponsored Posts

Beauty and Fashion Tech and Girl Gloss occasionally include compensated advertorial or sponsored posts. All such posts  are disclosed as being sponsored or advertorial in the post. Please note that we normally do not accept sponsored or advertorial posts for less than a flat fee of $250. That rate may be higher if large amounts of  custom content is created or if the advertiser wishes to preapprove content. All links in such posts must carry a rel=nofollow tag and all posts must be disclosed as sponsored. No exceptions.

Affiliate Links and Advertising

Beauty and Fashion Tech and Girl Gloss each at times make use of affiliate links and run advertisements for various companies.  We do not accept products for review that seek to restrict our use of affiliate links or advertising.

Receipt of Product Not Contractual or Compensatory

All products received are  deemed to be gifts/commercial samples that do not form a contract for review and are not deemed to be compensation for any content that is written.
