Adverts & Sponsorships

It’s a rare occurrence, but I may accept sponsored content on The Residents, which means that I am financially compensated to publish a campaign or article. You may see an AD on my YouTube, Facebook, Instagram or Instagram Stories, as well as my blog. You will never see sponsored Tweets or in my private Facebook Group. Any feature that The Residents has been remunerated for will feature ‘AD’ in the title and will be clearly marked ‘This is a Paid for Advertisement by X’ as the last line of the post, or above the fold of the description box on YouTube videos. I only ever work with brands that I love on campaigns and features that I feel are relevant for The Residents.

If I do not disclaim it, it was not paid for. I have always disclaimed all paid posts, from my first sponsored post by Allbirds, since 2016. I follow the New Zealand ASA Guidelines, to which I contributed on the Influencer Code in 2017.

Affiliates & Samples

Some links on The Residents may contain affiliate links. This means that if you click on an affiliate link, go through to the retailer and purchase an item, I may receive a small percentage of your purchase. Adding affiliate links into a post is always the last step I do after the review has been written and my opinion on the product already formed.

The Residents features products I’ve purchased myself and press samples, although I am not obliged to feature the latter. It is at my discretion. Some products may also be purchased with a press discount.

I only recommend products that I genuinely love and would recommend to a friend, but I can’t guarantee that everything will work on all skin types. Please take into account your own skin type and allergies and wherever possible test products out yourself before purchasing.
