If I ever receive anything in the mail from a company, I will let you know and I will state that every time. If that is not stated, I have bought it with my own money. I will never tell you I have bought something if I haven't. If I have been sent a product to review, that will not sway my opinion whatsoever. It will always be 100% my own thoughts and opinions. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns at : Stephanieemail@example.com
