Hello greenies! As I walked through the forest this week, I’ve noticed the leaves are changing colors already… The mornings are getting a chilly. Summer is biding us adieu, isn’t it? Even though the heat was, at times, unbearable, it still went by so fast.

I’ve been reading some articles on the onslaught of fake influencers (geez, don’t you just roll your eyes at this word; I know I do) and how brands are non the wiser – a brand sees big numbers of “followers” and thinks how they’ll cheaply get a word out about their products – you know, because there are so many followers this “influencer” has. I’d think that by now, any respectable business would be hip to the profiles which are fake – say, you decide to jump on the green beauty wagon, have no idea about the green beauty products, but wish to be a snob (how green of ya!) and get as many super expensive products for free as possible. Well, Twitter stepped in a long time ago and cleansed the fake followers, and you only have, say, 70 followers on Twitter. What do you do? Gain, say, 4000 followers on Instagram in one day. Bought and paid for, of course. The expensive brands see this, want to be with the big crowd and start sending you their products, other brands follow, of course. To make the matter worse, these brands then offer veteran green beauty bloggers a discount for the promotion of their products – almost insulting, isn’t it? So, yeah, anyways, these brands have no clue they are sending free products and paying for posts on Instagram to someone, whose followers are fake – and it’s all so easy to check nowadays. Ok, some fake influencers are a bit more subtle – the paid followers are added daily in smaller quantities.

Where does that leave honest bloggers? Well, algorithms promote only those, who have many fake followers and fake likes and comments – all bought and paid for. And even those profiles, which literally steal photos and whole texts get 1000s of followers – on the account of someone else’s work, and, again, the brands are clueless – for example – the very brand whose products I’ve reviewed, did not even like my post, but did so on a profile who stole my exact photo and text. This tells you just how genuine this green beauty community has become.

And yes, these fake influencers do thoroughly read the veteran blogs, and not only copy what we write (read: share our years, even decades long experiences and knowledge), but also try to paint us as the jealous types because – wait for it – they get all the attention. It’s not about being jealous when your photos, your text, your experience, ideas, creativity is stolen. It’s not about jealous when someone promotes, say, Ordinary brand along with some expensive green beauty brand via fake bought numbers, and claims how successful they are as opposed to the real bloggers. When green beauty brands work with such “bloggers” what does that say about them?

It gets even more rotten – some of these super successful bloggers don’t even own a domain for their blogs, yet, the businesses, in year 2017 nonetheless, obviously don’t mind this either.

So, yeah, this week, I’ve posted a somewhat Mini Body Care Review of the products from various Love Lula Boxes. And speaking of Love Lula Beauty Boxes – the August one is yours for FREE with purchase. And since there’s a Labor Day weekend in USA – I’ve got quite a few great deals from the other side of the pond waiting for you – and all these stores ship worldwide.
