All opinions and views stated on torivale.com are my own and may change throughout time and with further experience. I pride myself on being an honest, thoughtful and reliable person, and I’ve never and will never be paid or enticed to speak highly of a brand, product, issue or cause, if that isn’t my true feeling. Of course, we all have differing opinions to varying degrees, and I respect if your opinion is contrasting to my own.
ALLERGIES & SENSITIVITIES
As someone who has reacted to many products myself, please remember to carefully check the ingredients of the product(s) that you’ve been inspired to purchase after reading one of my reviews before buying and using it. I always recommend patch testing new products – especially those of a liquid consistency – on the inside of the wrist and on the neck for at least three days before proceeding cautiously to the face.
PHOTOGRAPHY & IMAGES
Unless stated otherwise, all photography is my own. These images are copyrighted and never to be used without clear credit. Unless you are the brand whose product is being photographed (and the image is only being used on social media), I request kindly: Full permission must be granted, and terms and conditions must be met, for any images to be used for professional purposes and/or within paid content.
RACISM, ABUSIVE COMMENTS & DISCRIMINATION
My aim is for torivale.com, as well as my social media accounts, to be an actively anti-racist and anti-homophobic environment, which also strongly opposes any other form of abuse, hate speech and discrimination. While I hope I won’t have to, any comments of an abusive and/or discriminative nature will be deleted as soon as is possible.
CREATING A POSITIVE, CALM & RELIABLE SPACE
As someone who has experienced anxiety and depression in the past, it’s essential for me that torivale.com is, and continues to progresses forwards as, a safe, calm and welcoming area on the Internet. In saying this, it’s vital that torivale.com is known as an anti-bullying platform, and any comments of a mean nature will be deleted as soon as is possible.
Currently, I do not use affiliate links.
ADVERTS & GIFTS
Currently, as my blog and following is so small, I do not do any advertisements nor am I gifted products from brands. Occasionally, I’m gifted products from family members, and I’ll do my best to make it clear which products these are when reviewing.
