Website policy

This blog’s policies will be discussed under the following headings:

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me, Ufuoma Akpan-Ntem. I live in Paris, France. This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. This blog does not contain content which might present a conflict of interest. This content may not always be identified.
The views and opinions expressed on this blog belong solely to me, the blog owner. If I claim or appear to be an expert on a certain topic or product or service area, I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my experience, are worthy of such endorsement. 

I do sell some of the products I recommend but I only recommend them because I use them and believe they can help you. You can also purchase close alternatives to them from your local health beauty supply shop. However, if you so wish, you can purchase them them via my amazon affiliate account or my Sizzelle online store.
The owner of this blog does not usually receive compensation to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. If for any reason I accept paid topic insertions and post them, that content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content. In addition, the compensation received will not influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog.

We publish Google ads on this website. You must therefore note that “third parties may be placing and reading cookies on your browsers, or using web beacons to collect information as a result of Google ads serving on our website”.

Thank you for your interest in working with The sizzlingmommy!

Please understand that I have a turnaround time of about 4-6 weeks within which I will post the reviews and will always try to get them up as soon as possible. 
In order to conduct a proper review of your product, I will require a full size product. This makes for a more accurate review.  All of my reviews are honest opinions and I will be happy to include action shots of using the item being reviewed. Video reviews will be considered, depending on the product being reviewed. In the event that I don’t like the product and I cannot provide a positive review, you will be informed. We can discuss any negative feedback I have. If you don’t mind, I can post a review of the pros and cons of your product. If you’re not comfortable with that, the review will not be published. Kindly note that shipment for any product to be reviewed is the responsibility of your company and will not be returned.

Giveaway policy
From time to time, I shall be personally giving away products that I like. However, if you’re interested in giving away your product or gift certificate, I will be glad to work with you to make it fun and exciting: a giveaway is a great way to advertise your company or cause. Please be specific on the giveaway item, and whether there are any specific requirements for entry. I will use Random.org to choose the winner randomly.
Winners are usually notified within 48 hours and will have 48 hours from the time of notification to respond. Please do not ship the giveaway item to me. You will be responsible for shipping the giveaway item to the winner directly. I will provide you with the winner’s mailing address once the giveaway is closed.
I have the right to refuse any product or giveaway that does not fit with my blog.
