Affiliate Disclosure


At The Brotique we aim to provide honest and independent advice you can trust about all things related to family cycling.  We also want to make it easy for you to find the best grooming products, and lifestyle accessories, and we often do this by reviewing products.

Please rest assured that we also recommend beard products, retailers and brands that are not members of affiliate schemes. If we love something we'll tell you about it, no matter where you can buy it!  We're particularly keen to support new young brands who are encouraging the next generation of cyclists.

Even though we may receive compensation in connection with your purchase of Affiliate Products as outlined above, we still seek to provide our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, and experiences as they relate to the products and services that are featured on the Site.

The Brotique participates in a variety of affiliate programs. Affiliate programs are where we get a commission if you purchase via our links. We use affiliate programs to keep our website free and also as a metric of how many users are purchasing products through our site. If you have any questions about affiliate programs, please do contact us and we will do our best to help.

What we do.

To enable us to run The Brotique successfully we need to form relationships with manufacturers, suppliers and retailers, as well as you our readers.  We also need to make enough money to fund the maintenance and development of the website, as well as earn a living to support our family. To do this we are members of several affiliate marketing schemes but we don’t use advertising banners on our website.

What we don’t do.

We don’t use advertising banners on our site, allow other companies to produce our content or write about anything the team hasn’t used or tested.

How does affiliate marketing work?

Affiliate marketing is one of the main ways websites and blogs make money.  A retailer is a member of an affiliate scheme (or runs their own scheme). When a link is clicked on from a website that is also a member of the affiliate scheme, and a purchase is made, the website gets a small commission.  This does not affect the price of the item paid by you, our reader.

Which affiliate schemes does The Brotique use?

We are members of the following Affiliate Marketing schemes:

Affiliate Window, Amazon Affiliates, Ebay Partner Network, Skimlinks,

Every time you, as one of our readers, makes a purchase through such a link you're helping keep The Brotique to free to access resource for everyone - thanks so much!

We could make lot more money writing about cheap, low quality beard products as (unfortunately) these sell in much higher quantities. However, we firmly believe our readers want to hear about the best quality products that really help you refine your grooming.

Items sent to The Brotique for review

Where The Brotique has been lent or given an item for review, we will always disclose this.  This will not impact our impartiality, and we always strive to review every product with honesty and integrity.

So If you have any questions at all about our use of affiliate marketing, please do get in touch via the "Contact" form at the top of our website.
