We wanted to create this page to clear up any confusion about how we create the content of this website, what our relationships are with the manufacturers in the industry, etc. We believe in transparency, and we want to use this page to be as transparent as possible with all aspects of our website. We are also disclosing this information in an effort to be in accordance with the FTC’s “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising“. 16 CFR, Part 255
Receiving Free Products
We did not initially receive any free products for review on the site, and most of the primary traffic pages (most popular products) were purchased. After the site gained some traction, we received a few free products to review on the site. These include:
In some cases on our reviews you may find “affiliate links.” Essentially what that means is that if you click the link and make a purchase, we will receive a commission. This comes at no cost to you whatsoever. It simply means that the origin of the sale is tracked back to our website. We may also provide a coupon for a product that is used to track the source of a sale, for which we are then compensated.
We may also may link to general e-commerce sites where we receive an affiliate commission, though we have no direct relationship with the company that manufactures the product (eg we link to the particular mattress via Amazon.com and receive a commission, though this is purely a relationship with Amazon, and not a relationship with that mattress company). These other, general ecommerce sites include:
We do not allow sponsored content on our website. All the content comes from us and we do not allow any outside party to provide content on our website.
We created this website with a few goals. First, most consumers get very confused when trying to decide on a acne solution. Next, liking a certain acne solution is a very personal choice that depends on many different factors, meaning there is not necessarily one “best” acne cream.
With that in mind, we just wanted to provide information that attempts to simplify the process for you. Opinions on the site are our own, and should be treated as opinions, not final verdicts.
