Small(er) Beauty YouTubers You Should Check Out

Seems like I haven't talked about YouTubers in a while. Two years ago I started watching the bigger channels less and as time went on - and drama unfolded 😁 - I watch even less. These people have their following and my lil views ain't gonna hurt their pocket any. But I gotta protect my sanity bousie so my filter up. P.S. by small(er) I mean under 100,000 subscribers.

Here are some channels that I think are worth a look:

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.

Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

Elle S Angelica Nyqvist
The beauty industry is really ovadoing it with the releases cause they realise consumers are just lapping it up. We really need to take stock of what we have and be more mindful of what we're purchasing.

Personally I'm at a point where not much excites me and I truly need to cut my eye at the people tings 😁 That and Auntie Mia wanna put VAT on online purchases 👀I dunno how we gine survive bout hey! Of course I still wanna support the local M.A.C counters and attend Beauty Tradeshows so I gotta be realistic. A low buy suits me just fine.
