Hi Rosy Friends,
So here’s the scoop with this site. Unlike my blog, this site is designed to be monetized. What does that mean? It means that some of the links for the products, where possible, are affiliate links. This also means that I may be financially compensated if you click them and buy something, subscribe, download, or do something else like that.
What has this changed in terms of my reviews? Honestly: nothing. I’m working on adding every single product I’ve reviewed to this site, regardless of whether or not I liked it or whether it worked for me. This is essentially a database of everything I’ve tried. Some of the products will have links, some will not (likely because I couldn’t find any). Some of the links that exist on the site will be affiliate links, some will not.
The presence of an affiliate link won’t have any bearing on the review I gave the product. My main goal is to help you to get to know what I’ve tried in terms of living a Rosy Life – that is, a rosacea-friendly lifestyle that reduces triggers and hopefully treats and prevents symptoms.
None of this information should be taken as a diagnosis, medical advice or any other official advice, for that matter. As always, the views presented here are my opinion. They are honest and show how a product did or did not work for me. Does that mean it will or will not work for you? Nope. But I’m just hoping it will give you more info that you can use to create your own rosacea friendly strategy.
Why did I make this an affiliate site? I didn’t want to alter my official blog site. That said, I’ve reviewed a heck of a lot of products and since none of my blog posts or YouTube videos are sponsored, it can get expensive as heck to keep buying products to try. I love doing it, but I’m a writer – I’m far from rich. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been sent some products to try for free in exchange for my honest reviews (which I always declare in the videos, video descriptions and blog posts) but the majority of this effort is paid for my lil’ ol’ me. It’s expensive to be honest!
I’d love to keep this up. I’d love to get a better camera so you can see and hear what’s going on (and so it will stop cutting off after every 12 minutes of video, causing me to lose countless hours of total footage). I’m hoping that this site will help to make sure I can keep up my blogs and videos because I adore doing them.
So that’s the scoop. Thanks for listening!
