FALSE ADVERTISING | FB & IG MAKEUP SCAMS TO LOOK OUT FOR

  • Hey guy, so today's video is one thats a bit different than I have done. I was scrolling through the explore page of IG the other day and saw a few ads on teeth whiteners that really upset me, blatant false and deceptive advertising. Then I was over on Facebook and saw the same thing, scams showing people using Dermacol foundation but touting it as their brand of foundation. I wanted to show you guys because I saw the comments below the posts and all of them were inquiring about the products and how they could purchase them based on the videos that they were watching in the ads, which were not even the product being sold.
    This video is more or less to shed some light on the fact that there are people out there who spend their hard earned and saved money on products that aren't even what they are being marketed as. I know this is NOT a new thing, false advertising has been around since ads have, but I saw HUNDREDS of commenters below the posts of people wanting to buy the products and I realized that people outside of the beauty community and beauty space on USclip may not know that these are not the real product being used, and I see people giving their money to companies who ARE LYING to get your money. Their products may work, but they are illegally using videos from people testing other products and calling it their own.
    The teeth whitener is completely photoshopped and people PURCHASE the fakery. This video likely won't stop it from happening, because outside of the USclip community, it is easy for companies to swindle their viewers with deceptive ads, but I just wanted to let people know to keep their wits about them, realize that things aren't always what they seem and that just because its on your favorite app, doesn't mean you should take what they say at face value.

    Also allot of these products being sold online can be manufactured in un-safe environments and with un-safe materials to cut on costs which will ultimately result in a poor and possibly hazardous product.

    The company called Pheora recently contacted me to be an ambassador for their brand, that I would be sent products to review and also receive commission with a discount code...as long as I buy something using my personal code within 72 hours to activate the ambassador process. 🙄 All the work of commenting and DM’ing and promising of this and that, just so I or anyone buy a product. Pathetic.

    I found with those makeup & other product scams on Facebook when u comment the truth about it, within an hour your comment is goooooone. They delete all the negative comments so potential customers don't get to see REAL reviews & make it look like their product is in high demand. Then when customers find out its all bullshit after they buy it they offer a refund if u send it back, BUT the cost of postage to send it back is usually more than what your paid for it or they have a tiny little sized disclaimer saying they don't offer refunds etc. Thats why it's cheap. bloody ridiculous.

    I tried that foundation because of having bad acne, and yeah they got me because I felt hopeless on finding a foundation to help and this ain't it, should have bothered and known the comments from people saying it worked were fake!! p/s also doesn't cover tattoos/ isn't matt/ does rub off mostly all over my boyf face when I kiss him! going to try dermocol now i've seen you have used it and its good! I did try and do my homework but fake reviews are also a big problem

    I agree with most of this video specifically the teeth whitener and the false advertising bs on IG. Now as for the dermacol one... they may have an amazing product, can’t afford advertising, found the closest videos or images to show how their product works and used it in hopes to get their business off the ground or reach ppl who may not be able to afford Dermacol. Idk I am trying to see the positive because idky someone would blatantly lie when the people are going to get the product and come back and say this is bs! Ugh it’s a tough one. I don’t however think they should use anyone’s images without their permission except for people already on the public platform in regards to beauty or health whatever their business line is.

    I hate photoshop pictures. They are so fake. I sell toothpaste that whitens( within a week) and alot of people are skeptical because of the fakes out there.

    Funny enough, I stopped by your channel because I saw an ad on FB for magnetic eyeliner and lashes, and I wanted to see if it was legit. I'm one to always do in-depth research before buying things, and that's something I always suggest to do! I never make a purchase before making sure the company and product are what they claim.

    On eBay you can buy brushes that say Bobbi Brown or Mac or Sigma, even Wayne Goss for $20!! Why ebay or Facebook allow this to happen is unreal to me. This is supposedly against the law. Most people are aware but some poor people believe it and waste their money on shit from China! It infuriates me. I never buy from Facebook or eBay.

    Also, you bet your ass half those comments are bots that are meant to impress upon people that there is interest in their product and gives the impression that it is legitimate.

    Almost every single publicity is garbage and lies even the publicity made by the so called beauty gurus who recommend products and don’t even use them at the end of the day they just do it to gain money with their “discount codes”

    I’m a bit late to the table but what also pisses me off is when you call these companies out in their comments they will delete it. Which is no surprise considering the way they operate.

    @RawBeautyKristi so I was just trying to randomly show my husband who you were and what your channel was about. I literally clicked on this video out of a ton and time stamp approx 6:00 roughly, which is a statement he and I always talk about. No one outside of the beauty YT community knows anyone inside the inside beauty YT com.

    I'm so glad that I found your channel. I love that you tell it like it is and you're a real beautiful person and not a fake cosmo girl. As for the comments on FB, I genuinely believe that those comments are BS - I am confident that they are paid for their comments and questions to hype the advertisement. Again, thank you for your channel and for telling it like it is!
