Product Review Guidelines
We love to feature brands and products here at Retrodiva’s Beauty. However, we do not post giveaway or contest information or other promotional material unless it is of value to our readers. If you are interested in featuring your promotion, please ask for our rate card and we will be happy to work out a sponsored post for you.
Our reviews are always honest, and they are not subject to change. Readers continue to visit because we offer complete honesty. If a product doesn’t work for us, we will explain why in detail. We do not believe in product bashing, and always acknowledge that even though it didn’t work for us, it very well could work for someone else.
Please give us time to fully test and review your product; a four week period is often sufficient, although there can be backlogs. Should that be the case, we will attempt to let you know approximately when the piece will go live. Often we will hold onto a product and include it in one of our evergreen pieces or in a product roundup. We will make every attempt to notify you when your review or mention is published as well as mention the brand on social media (Facebook/Twitter). Please note we also feature some products on our Instagram account that don’t get posted in the blog.
Please make sure we have enough product to test. Lab samples are perfectly fine, just please let us know that you would prefer they not be photographed and include images as necessary.
Also, please note that press or product samples are not guaranteed a review. We reserve the right to decline to write a review for any reason. We cannot accept product as payment for any post or review.
Please use our contact form if you are interested in sending products for review.
