ABOUT WORKING WITH ME
I love collaborating with passion-filled brands from the soon-to-launch to the up-and-coming to the tried and true. My personal criteria for featuring items are that products are cruelty-free, innovative, and non-pro-inflammatory. I abide by the advice Thumper’s mama gave him in Bambi (e.g., if you can’t say somethin’ nice, don’t say anything at all) and write only positive reviews. Should I have an issue with or adverse reaction to a product, I will discuss it directly and privately with the sender to discuss ways forward.
My ultimate goal is to share and celebrate extraordinary skin care that works with skin rather than against it. I enjoy nothing more than promoting people who inspire me and products that deliver on their promises. Depending on your preference, I can focus solely on reviewing the products or I can delve deeper and do some brand storytelling as well. As a trained clinical psychologist, I love interviewing founders and formulators about their vision and passions.
I put a great deal of time into getting to know products and try to be thoughtful with each review I write, which means the finished product may take some time but will be worth the wait.
Finally, I strive to be professional, and I always abide by FTC disclosure guidelines.
Please email me with any questions or to discuss possibilities (e.g., a feature of your product and/or a sponsored giveaway).
GENERAL DISCLAIMER: All content is based on personal experience and is for informational purposes only. I do not recommend trying new products–no matter how “healing” or “gentle”–on skin that is already inflamed or highly compromised. My skin is photosensitive, dehydrated, aging, sensitive and easily irritated, prone to inflammation and congestion. For your sake, I hope your skin is a little less troubled/complicated than mine! Everyone’s skin is different, and your response to or results from a product may be different from mine. Always read ingredient lists and patch test before slathering a new product all over your face.
