Instagram beauty guru’s….theres so many of them…so so so so many off them. And I mentioned them before in one of my videos. They’re the skincare and makeup influencers who apply makeup to their face with weird things, point at their face and say no a lot for some reason. Bu they also have a reputation for using skincare….wrong….very very wrong.
Today I want to share some of the most frustrating mistakes instagram beauty gurus make that could lead to their viewers wasting their products! From Huda Beauty at the DIY face masks again, to dangerous use of The Ordinary’s AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution.

Remember that skincare is extremely personal to everybody’s skin. What works for me, may not work for you. But I hope my videos give you some good ideas for products, techniques and Ingredients to try.
Also, i’m obviously not a dermatologist or a doctor, so all opinions on products and anything else i’m presenting, is results and findings from my own experience and research.
And that’s why i’m here, to share my research and my findings that go further than what is said on the bottle or google!
But, everything I present is always a discussion for you to join in with 🙂
If you have any serious skin concerns, please see a dermatologist / doctor.

  1. James: "Applying cornstarch as baking powder, you know when you bake your face"

    Robert: seizing with anger

  2. I know that I usually joke about how you can't have skin issues if you don't have skin anymore but these instagrammy tiktoky people just take it as a fucking challenge don't they

  3. OMG – if I was commenting on that chemical peel dropped all over – I would be Screaming my head off – IT BURNS ! Like that’s why it’s called chemical peel! And she does that after such harsh skin cleaning 😱 my skin would SET ON FIRE! I would probable have to be rushed into emergency !

  4. I really want to know your thoughts on the DIY jelly mask contraption that’s out there. There’s multiple makers of them. They were a thing in 2017 but I still want to know bc sheet mask waste. Huda wrote an article on them and I know there’s lots of YouTube videos on them but here’s a link rating them: https://www.alterestimate.com/best-facial-mask-makers/

  5. If she just wanted to mess around in the kitchen, why didn’t she just make some food/snack instead of a wasteful face mask that wasn’t doing anything😶

  6. Thankyou so much James 💚

  7. Waiting for someone to put an uneaten pizza on their face. Sauce side down first(of course). Tomatoes- antioxidant, cheese- lactic acid and basil – shit who cares🤣🤣

  8. Does light therapy actually work? The whole idea of it makes me skeptical.

  9. I love that you added the clips looping in the bottom corner. So thoughtful for those of us who like following along with the video during your commentary!

  10. i honestly despise dyi face masks, i used to do it very often but i only ended up with my skin feeling extra tight and breaking out two days after. 🙄

  11. Maybe she is using the parsley for consistency

  12. Please could you tell me what your favourite zit stickers are?

  13. me: currently putting on the ordinary’s aha bha watching your video. the instagram girls: dropping it all over their faces and touching the applicator to their skin. me: SCREECHING

  14. Let’s bring back ‘gripe’

  15. James goes on a rant for almost 11 minutes straight

  16. This isn’t. It’s not. 😂😂

  17. I absolutely loathe food ingredients in diy hair and skin things. I’d much rather eat the avocado or banana or egg or WHATEVER than waste it in my hair or smeared on my skin!

  18. So im kindve new to this chanel and i always thought there was something unusual about your thumbnails but i never knew what it was until now… Its your freeking eyes! Theyre so nice and what a unique color. Ive also been enjoying your content alot.

  19. Videos like this should come with AT LEAST come with disclaimers, but if I was all-powerful ruler of the world, I’d ban videos like these all together, because so many teens and tweens haven’t learned how to think critically and be smart on the internet!

  20. Oo I totally want to do that huda mask but on ice cream. Looks delish

  21. Second video, it was Lumene essence water.

  22. Hand sanitizer came in my eye and i went into a panic , so i felt that when you said if it gets in her eye😬

  23. Dont know about anyone else but the aha and bha solution from the ordinary caused me to have an allergic reaction I dont have sensitive skin but I think it's a bit too harsh for most skin types

  24. Yes… I have got that product in my eye. It’s burns like hell.

  25. The video with parsley, you can TELL it’s not parsley in the actual mask she put on her face. It’s too green.

  26. I'd LOVE to see a video about your experience with laser, that would genuinely be super interesting!

  27. Try Amber LED for rosacea, it really helps to heal the skin and reduce the inflammation.

  28. I can’t do Huda, her DIYs from her old blog we’re downright horrible

  29. Can't lie. I've used DIYs forever because cheap skincare is just not a thing in my country. Thankfully, more websites are shipping here so I can get my hands on some products. Still, shipping takes FOREVER and packages get lost :C

  30. Consumers should be really careful with the Ordinary aha/bha mask. It happened to me once when the solution touched a small cut on my finger which I did not know about. I was screaming from pain.


  32. can they just eat the ingredients instead of wasting it for instagram videos

  33. People in these videos literally have a whole skincare routine and make videos putting crap on their faces saying that's all they do. Who are they trying to fool?

  34. Honey makes the skin soft and smooth..
