How MyBeautyCravings Achieves 100% Honest Reviews

Our single and most important principle is in keeping our reviews 100% honest. We are glad to see readers sharing though our Readers’ Survey that they trust reviews on this website and find our recommendations useful and honest.

Most of the products reviewed on this website are paid for by the editor. At times, myBeautyCravings would receive press samples. We would only accept these offers if companies allow mBC to retain 100% editorial opinion. 

It’s not nice to say something bad about people who gifted you something, right? The same goes with brands – we would rather not post anything if we have nothing good to say about the free product.

Another method to ensure that we remain unbiased is to pay for products first before seeking sponsorship. If the product turned out to be top-notch, we would invite such companies for advertorial opportunity. For those that turned out to be mediocre, we would rather forgo sponsorship opportunity so that we can share such reviews with our readers without feeling the guilt.

Sponsored articles that are not marked as reviews may be advertorials by nature and will be disclosed accordingly.

Hello, It’s Me, Nicole!

myBeautyCravings EditorHi there, I’m Nicole and I’m the founder and author of all posts published on myBeautyCravings.

Every product, service or travel destination has been personally tested or visited by me. I pay for most of the products and experiences shared on this website. 

I have just entered my 40s, but like to believe that I look younger than my age. Ahem! :) I credit that to good genes and proper skincare regimen. Of course, quarterly botox session and regular travelling helps too! :)

Are you looking for 100% honest reviews on beauty and travel?

Do you want to know which products truly work (and which should be skipped)?

Do you love free and easy travel? 

Would you love to save money on beauty and travel?

If your answers to the above are “Yes!”, stay on as I’ve made it my mission to help readers obtain the best value for their money by sharing:

1) 100% Honest Beauty Reviews

2) Original Travel Stories, Destination Tips & Guides

My main beauty concerns are aging, enlarged pores, blemishes and recently dehydration. I breakout easily when I use the wrong product despite my ‘advanced’ age. LOL! Therefore, you’ll be able to benefit from my reviews because I’ll pinpoint products that are safe for pimple-prone skin (and those that aren’t).

My beauty targets are to find products that:

  1. Slow down aging
  2. Improve skin firmness and hydration
  3. Are safe for pimple-prone skin
  4. Make us beautiful

I love travelling! And I only do it on free and easy, sometimes adding a little adventurous spirit to my travel itineraries. I’m not too keen on over-touristy attractions.  By that, I’m referring to places that are touristy for the sake of being touristy and offer very little authentic experience. Therefore, you can find me sharing a mix of worthy tourist attractions and places off the beaten track – both of which would be equally favored by locals.

I love beaches, hiking, mountain-climbing, waterfalls, good food and seeking out gems that’re off the tourists’ map. If you are into fun and authentic travel experiences, this site could become your next best friend (and we may become great virtual friends :)).

I’m into personal finance too! That’s why I don’t have the habit of spending excessively, be it on travel or beauty. For example, I would rather walk 20 minutes than take a bus (that’s for health reason too). I would rather take a bus than hire a cab. I wouldn’t mind staying in a budget hotel on days when I would be out the entire day. Sometimes, you may see me splurging on cool apartments, expensive activities or premium beauty products. That’s because I’d found the experience value for money.

I do things based on a value principle. How much value do I get out of the money I’ve paid? That’s a little different from being on a budget.

Based on the same principle, I like beauty products that work more than how big their branding (and marketing budget) is. Products I like can be a mix of premium and drug-store brands as long as they work and offer excellent value.

Stay connected with me if you find similarities in our likes and dislikes on beauty and travel.
