Why Don't I Disclaim Each Product I am Sent?


I just got asked a question by a lovely reader of my blog who is also a friend, she asked me why I don't put a little disclaimer at the end of each post to say whether I've received the item for free for review or bought it myself.

My answer:

I have already written a post on why I find it quite annoying and unnecessary to do this. This is because I have already made a disclaimer page letting everyone know that I may receive items for review at times and also because whether I receive it for review or buy it with my own money my review will always be my honest opinion.

If you look back at some reviews you probably won't be able to tell the difference between whether I have bought the product or been sent it, unless of course it's been implied in the post. Why? Because each review is as equally honest as the next, so I don't see the point in writing whether it's been sent to me or if I've bought it, because it makes no difference to the review.

I know a lot of people may disagree with me but let me know what you think in the comments below, and what you'd prefer :)

Thank you for reading x


  1. totally agree with you on this! my feelings are the same!


  2. I recently watched a video by Tiffany D on the same topic, I really think that you should do what you want to because at the end of the day its your blog. For me personally I like to mention it because the company was kind enough to send me the products so it acknowledges them.

  3. I totally agree, if all opinions are honest then it really doesnt matter.

  4. I totally agree with you, but in the past there has been a lot of talk about this subject and most readers seem to prefer a disclosure.
    I don't like disclosures for the same reason you gave, all my reviews are honest regardless of how I came to review the product, but I do put a disclosure for those readers who require it xx

  5. I'm happy either way. As you say, your reviews don't change depending on how you acquired the product, so who cares?

  6. i totally agree with you xx
