SWEARBY: Editor Picks


Alas! This is the site I have long awaited for. I can’t tell you the amount of times I bought or tried a product because I read something about it on instagram or an ad… I am so over the falsity of affiliate marketing. Not to take away from the sector as it is growing and does serve certain purposes. But I want truth, honesty and real answers.

Basically I want people like my closest trusted friends to give me advice on what works for them and SWEARBY is that safe haven

As a fellow editor amongst some amazing women, we share the products we can’t keep to ourselves, we wished we knew sooner about and to save you the the trouble we already went through finding them!

I have always been a “big-sister” to my friends when it comes to recommendations, advice and new products, partially due to my passion for trying and finding the best of the best but it’s also my innate maternal instincts that wants everyone to know about them and try them too. We are all in this together and can all share something, it makes life so much better and more fun!

Enough with the secrecy of tips and tricks only to leave you wondering what the hell to buy. I have fallen victim to buying, say a mascara because one of my favorite actress’s swore by it. Not to say that might not have been the truth then, but for one I actually hated the mascara and thought she may have just been paid to promote it and felt dumb for even trying it. This platform is much closer to the source and the realness in product reviews is unparalleled. THIS is the group of girlfriends I have been looking for.
