xSparkage is owned and operated by me, Leesha. If you have any questions about this blog, please feel free to contact me Here.
All reviews, with the exception of Guest Reviews, are written by me and are based off of my personal experiences and opinions of the product(s) being reviewed. My thoughts are never influenced by brands or PR companies. In addition, no reviews are ever guaranteed.
xSparkage accepts press samples of product from brands and PR companies on a consideration only bases. This means that just because a company sends a product, I in no way, shape, or form guarantee that I will ever show or talk about it on xSparkage.com. Posts that have these products will be clearly noted. I do not accept products from brand representatives (Younique, Avon, Mary Kay, etc).
xSparkage will occasionally work closely with a company to bring you a project together. This may be a tutorial, giveaway, or something similar. I do not do sponsorships with products I do not believe in. Before a sponsorship is worked out, I make sure I have fully tested and tried the product, believe in the brand behind it, and have worked out something that is fun and helpful for my viewers. I would never work with a company or use a product I don’t like, and would never speak highly of something i wouldn’t use myself. I make sure that everything that you see from me is 100% honest, and would never post anything otherwise, no matter what. I have turned down many companies because I didn’t believe in their brand or product, or didn’t comply with what they asked of me. I have spent a lot of time and effort on my YouTube and blog, and would never throw that work away on something I didn’t love myself.
xSparkage will post links to products and use affiliate links. These are links that issue a small commission percentage of the purchase price of a product. These commissions are paid out by the companies, and cost you nothing. 100% of commission earned from affiliate links is put back in to making sure xSparkage can be the best it can be, helping pay for website bandwidth expenses, video equipment, etc.
You all have given me so much support, I try as much as I can to get something to give back to you! Frequently I will have giveaways on my blog, generally hosted by Rafflecopter. Prizes for giveaways will either be purchased by myself, or have been donated by brands or PR companies (thank you so much!) Giveaways generally last for two weeks from the original post date, and the winner is randomly selected via Rafflecopter. Winner will be emailed generally within 48 hours of the end of the giveaway, and will have 48 hours to respond to the winning email. If no response is received, a new winner will be chosen. Winners name will be posted on giveaway blog post. Prizes will be mailed by myself within a week of winner responding to email.
