As much as I hate writing about negative stuff on my blog, I strongly feel that I have to address this issue that I am going to tell you guys today-it is clearly MISREPRESENTATION and I just want to clarify through this post that I am not affiliated with this brand and company in any way.

Two of my regular readers, Rizza, Franco, and Jhessica, messaged me, respectively and alerted me about this ad that featured my photo, which is from my Obagi blog post. Jhessica, in particular, said that she was surprised to see me in an ad and thought that I was endorsing some beauty product/service so she clicked on it and it led her to this website called Hydroface.
I won't go into detail what the eff Hydroface is and who the eff are the people behind this-all I want everyone to know is that I have no idea what Hydroface is, who invented it, and I do not know anything about or anyone from the company that manufactures/distributes it. I only found out about this product through my readers and sadly, it was in an unfortunate way and no, they did not ask my permission to use my photo.

How you do one thing is pretty much how you do everything. How can you trust this company if they can't be honest with something so simple as a photo? I tried reaching them, but they did not share their telephone number and email address in the website (WHY?!?!). I wish Dr. Diwata Libongco or whoever invented this product sees this post and takes down that ad with my photo on it. You've been warned.

You guys know me. If I am endorsing something, I am transparent about it and I inform everyone. For future reference, if I don't talk about endorsing a particular company and you don't find any information about it on my blog, then that only means I am not affiliated with it or I have no idea that it existed.
I am so sure that this is just one of the many unprofessional companies who stole my photos and used them in their ads as well as the photos of other people, Blogger or non-Blogger. So if ever you spot me in another ad, kindly inform me and I'll let you know if I am currently affiliated with the company/product or not. Thank you in advance and thank you very much, Rizza, Franco, and Jhessica for the concern-love you guys. :)
