Disclosure of Advertising and Affiliations

This website is a labor of love, which I created to educate people about new solutions for sensitive skin challenges, and the affect of cosmetic ingredients on sensitive skin.

To help support my work and the cost of maintaining this website, we receive income from advertisements placed on this site.

All affilliate commissions I receive from sales of these products help us to continue growing and developing this site and offering the free information and resources that we offer to help your sensitive skin.

All products we recommend come with a money back guarantee so that you can try them to see if they will work for your sensitive skin.

We accept sponsor advertisements from qualified skincare companies that meet our personal standards of products safety for sensitive skin. Links from these ads may lead to our review of their product. The product review exists independently of any sponsorship affiliation, and is my honest, personal experience of the skin care products.

From time to time our visitors may submit their own skin care product reviews, which do not reflect our own personal opinions.
