Advertising and Product Review Guidelines

Sponsored Posts/Brand / Product Review

I do allow sponsored posts, in the form of an honest paid review. Sponsoring a post enables the sponsor to ensure that their content is featured on my site, in their time frame, and there can be added promotion via social media as well. This includes, pinterest, facebook or twitter.

Sometimes post are created by the brand/pr agency, since this post is not beyond my control, i only accept article that are related in my niche and would not harm my readers nor my site.

Prices for sponsored posts start at $100 with maximum of two links inside the post, please email me at stylishobsessionbyria@gmail.com to discuss further if you are interested in a sponsored posts.

Guidelines for Product Review

All products for review will not be returned and shipping should be shouldered by the brand or pr agency itself.

This site focused on women’s obsession, beauty, fashion, skin care, gadgets. Price points range from mass market to ultra high end luxury. I try to have a good balance of everything. I do try to feature mostly well known brands that my readers know, use themselves and are easily able to buy at a store near them.

Learning about new products, services or websites is always one of my interest and would love to share them with my readers! Product reviews and giveaways are an easy, effective way to create interest in your product and direct traffic to your website! My Stylish Obsession welcomes the opportunity to try your product(s) and hold giveaways to her readers in return for writing and posting honest product reviews! I am also willing to work with those interested in advertising/sponsoring our website.

A Fashion/Beauty blog that talks about the recent trend of style , beauty, featuring make up product reviews. great skin care tips , shoes, current trend issues and latest stylish gadgets. This blog also talks about the passion in life and daily musings of a working mom. You can check my other site to learn more about my passion as a mom.

I do not charge for reviews if product samples are provided for us to try and keep. Reviews are detailed and honest, letting readers know exactly what I have experienced with your particular service/product. Each review receives its’ own personal attention, full of details, pictures, and links! If, for some reason, the review will not be positive, I will not post anything until I contact you and work to resolve the situation (should such an issue arise). Please be aware: I am not responsible for shipping charges. Samples/products will not be returned.

There is no charge for hosting giveaways if product samples are provided for us to review. It is the giveaway sponsor’s responsibility to ship the prize directly to the winner. This saves time, money, and having to ship the prize all over (which also helps save on valuable resources!)

Please let me know the following so that I can meet your giveaway expectations!

1. I prefer that the giveaway item is for the same item I reviewed. If this is not possible, please let me know what you prefer to provide for the giveaway (a specific monetary amount, a certain item, winner’s choice, etc.)

2. How many giveaway winners would you prefer?

3. Would you prefer the giveaway to be US only, US/Canada only, worldwide, etc?

4. How long would you like the giveaway to run for? Usually we try to run them for 2-3 weeks to get readers excited and get traffic flowing to your website.

5. Do you want to have any mandatory requirement of the giveaway (i.e.: entrants have to become a Facebook fan, Twitter follower, pinterest email subscriber, etc.)?

  • The product review will be posted as a separate article as well as permanently placed under my product review page.  If you would opt to do a giveaway, I will advertise it on a separate post and create a button advertisement for the giveaway on the side bar of my website.  (depends on the giveaway)  This is a way readers usually see when visiting a website and will generate high traffic for you which is a great promotion for your products.
  • I use rafflecopter but we can arrange for something different as you wish the giveaway to be.
  •  Please note that it is your responsibility to send the giveaway prize to the selected winner. I will forward you all the contact information as requested following the giveaway so the prize (s) can be sent accordingly.
Please feel free to roam around my site and read older entries.  All the   pictures featured here are from the author itself unless otherwise specified with credits from the site or the photographer. No part of this site are allowed to copy unless with special arrangement from the author.

• Not every sample I receive is featured. I tend to write about products that I like or love  or have recently used. If I didn’t like your product, there probably won’t be a feature and you can’t compel me to do so.

• My review will be honest. I can not be bribed into changing my posts nor be compelled to do so.  As much as possible, i don’t want to write negative things on a certain brand but it’s always good for readers to know what they are getting into.

• It will take time for your review to be completed. Usually I have other products in that same category that I’m currently testing, so it can be weeks to a few months even before I try out your product. Testing can take a long time, please be understanding especially if it’s skin care product since i could not used them altogether.

• Length of Testing:
Facial skin care usually is tested for at least a month or 6 weeks to allow my skin a chance to see result
Skin care items like masks, body lotion and sunscreen usually need a few weeks of testing.
Hair care products: Generally 1-2 weeks.
Makeup items typically need at least a few days or can even take up to two weeks  of use to see typical wear and ease of use.

Fashion Apparel usually takes two to three weeks to review since i don’t have the luxury of free time to take outfit shots considering that I only do this during weekends and our weather is sometimes erratic.

Gadgets :  Takes 2 to 7 days trial.

• Due to the time it takes to test a product, I need enough product to complete the testing period. I do not require a full sized sample. Smaller sizes and lab samples can be fine for me but if you are sending me a sample sizes it only means that I could not see the full effect of it.
