I've gone back and forth about whether or not to upload this video. I have feeling some people will be upset with what I am saying and please know that is not my intention. The goal of this video is to share my experiences, opinions, and feelings about sponsored videos and the use of affiliate links in the beauty community on YouTube. I don't expect everyone to agree with me. All I ask is that you be respectful of my opinions and I will be respectful of yours.

Thanks for listening, my friends.

Here is the text that I send to companies. Feel free to copy/paste/edit this text for personal use.

Thank you for contacting me regarding a review of ___________ products. My next available review spot is _________. If you would be willing to wait, I would be happy to review your product then.
As you may have noticed from watching my videos, respectful honesty is very important to me when reviewing products. Because of this, I never guarantee a positive review. The upside of this is that my subscribers trust me when I do rave about a product and, as a result, are more likely to purchase products from the presented company.
Again, I thank you for your interest. Please let me know if you would still be interested in a video review on my channel.
