Why I've become disillusioned with Youtubers | CharlotteBehappy




Warning: Rant about youtube, some brands, and some strong language, although no names named in a negative light. 

So this is a post I've been meaning to write a for a long long while.

I first discovered Youtube in about 2012. I believe the first video I ever watched was this and it led me on to the likes of Joey, Ingrid and Luke, and from there Dan, Phil, Charlie, Alex, Chris and PJ, Fleur, Tanya, Jim and eventually Zoe (I think I was subbed before 400,000 and at the time, that was pretty huge) and Alfie. When I was about 13 years old I was completely and utterly obsessed with Youtube. It was about a year later when I started my blog. 

Recently I've become completely bored with Youtube and I rarely watch beauty youtubers anymore. I don't know whether it's because I've changed or because Youtube has changed. I may just have been naive but I started watching Youtube, there was rarely a sponsored video to be seen. I have no problem with the occasional sponsored video, and by occasional (which many youtubers claim they only do) I mean no more than roughly 10 a year, and that just depends on how often you upload. However, literally every other video in my feed is sponsored, or the products were gifted. It's ridiculous. Especially considering the young majority audience of many gurus cannot afford Charlotte Tilbury or Mac or even fucking £10 drugstore foundations (like seriously L'oreal). 

Mini Superdrug Haul + Review | CharlotteBehappy





Hello everyone, how are you? Today I thought I'd share a mini haul post with you. However, like always, to spice it up a bit I've tried out the products so I can let you know if they're any good. Let me know what drugstore products you've been enjoying in the comments down below. 


I wasn't particularly interested in buying this foundation when it was released. A while back I tried the L'oreal Eau de something foundation which is a sort of equivalent to this. This is one of those liquid to powder foundations and with the L'oreal one, I found it a bit orange, and very drying, and it clung to dry patches. I thought I might as well give this a whirl, mostly because it was 2 for £10 at Superdrug and this was the most expensive thing along with the concealer below. When I got this in the post I was literally like 'what the flippidy flip' (maybe not literally). It looked so dark! I also had really low low expectations of this because it had an annoying dropped applicator which doesn't work as a pipette but just a strange stick.

Empties #8 (+ I'm back) | CharlotteBehappy




Hello everyone, it's good to be back.
So my exams are over and I've officially left school for good. As well as this, I've got an extra long holiday and this hopefully means I'll be able to upload every Wednesday and Sunday. I considered going back to my old schedule of Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday but for now, I'll stick to two uploads a week. I've got a lot of posts planned and ready, but as always let me know what you'd specifically like to see. If you want to contact me to talk to me about my blog, or to possibly to a collab/guest post, just email me here: charlottebehappy@yahoo.co.uk

Okay, let's get ready to rumble. I thought I'd return with a super long Empties post. This is definitely the largest one I've done, so enjoy!
Okay, so first up is this Imperial Leather body wash. This isn't a particularly floral smell but the scent is pretty neutral and clean. I wouldn't say it smells of literal raspberries but it feels pretty luxurious. It's not overly moisturising but it does a pretty decent job. Pick if up here

I originally reviewed this Argan Oil body butter here. It's moisturising and thick but I'm not too keen on the scent, and the scent really clings. It's overpriced, that's for sure, but compared to some slightly cheaper creams and lotions, this does stand out from the crowd. However, it's also good to keep in mind if you do buy it (here) that it's butter texture makes it super thick. This means you don't have to moisturise everyday, but if you do, your skin can feel coated and almost a bit heavy
