Please note that I get a ton of emails, and sometimes things get lost in my inbox, especially if I’m at my “real” job and things get backed up. I try to answer as many emails as I can, but it’s only me, no staff.
To Request a Product Review for Pregnancy/Nursing Safety
Please keep in mind that I am a person with a full time job and a family. I have already reviewed thousands of products, please check for your product on the list of pregnancy and nursing friendly brands.
I will not review your products without a full ingredient list. Why? People email me and say “I’m using a serum from X brand”, but they don’t know which one, that brand has 10 serums, they change the ingredients based on country, and some of the names are super similar.
Remember that you’re asking me for a favor, and sometimes a product can take 20 minutes or more to review. Asking me to hunt down and review all of the variations of your exact product is not something I am willing to do. I have drawn this line for myself, because I have a family and a life, and I have had readers over the years sending me emails telling me they need to do this, and I have a hard time saying no. To protect myself, I will not do this. Asking me to do this is rude and disrespectful. I am not getting paid to answer your email. I do not deserve to be yelled at or have you be snarky with me. And asking me to review or hunt down 20 different serums isn’t fair. I will not review your products without a full ingredient list.
I still get emails every day with just the name of a product, and it is obvious that people do not read this and do not care what I am asking to protect myself. I also consider this rude. If you want to email me (cemikese at yahoo.com) then I expect that you’ll have read what I just wrote and you will be respectful of me and my time. In addition, you should know that the first thing I ignore when I’m working a lot is my email. It is much faster to leave a comment on the blog. Here’s how to ask about product safety on the blog.
