FAQs + Legal Stuff

Q: How can I become a sponsor on your site? How much does it cost?

A:  I’m always open to new sponsors, particularly if you’re a business who can add value for Beauty Bets readers. Please email me at elizabeth [at] beautybets [dot] com for advertising guidelines and rates.

Q: Where do you get the products you review?

A: The majority of the products reviewed on this site are sent to me by publicists for free—which allows me to write this blog without going broke! I do, however, purchase the products I use by the truckload (Aveda Hand Relief, anyone?) .

Q: If you receive free products, how do we know your reviews are unbiased?

A: Heavens to Betsy! As a journalist, I hold myself to the highest editorial standards—I will never be swayed by swag. Any product reviews or opinions I write on Beauty Bets represent my honest, unbiased opinion. I wouldn’t have it any other way. No one pays me to write about products, though I do have associates accounts with some vendors, like Amazon.com.

Q: How do I submit products for review?

A: That’s easy. Just email me at elizabeth [at] beautybets [dot] com or send products* to Beauty Bets headquarters for review:

Beauty Bets, Inc.
2930 Xenwood Ave. S.
Minneapolis, MN  55416

*Please keep in mind that while I test-drive most products I receive—and love every minute of it—I only write about the ones that are exceptional, newsworthy, or make me laugh.

Q: I’m looking for a beauty expert or freelance writer. Can you help?

A:  Of course!  I’m a magazine editor by trade so feel right at home with beauty, travel, and lifestyle writing projects. I also love chatting up these topics on television and radio, and do so regularly. Just drop me a line at elizabeth [at] beautybets [dot] com
