There doesn't seem to be any thread on the whole internet about her videos. I'm curious to know what other people think of Dr Sam Bunting https://www.youtube.com/user/drsamshoes/videos. While I think it's great that a qualified dermatologist joins Youtube to educate people about skincare, but I've noticed several patterns:

- She only recommends the same old products: Elta MD sunscreen, La Roche Porsay cleanser, Obagi vitamin C serum and cream. She mentioned in 1 video that she was sponsored by Elta MD.

- She only responded to positive feedback on her recommendations or advices. I don't remember her ever addressing some constructive criticisms from viewers, like why she always recommended expensive sunscreen, why her face looked very red in her morning skincare routine, what she thought of Japanese sunscreens etc.

I open this thread in the adored bloggers section because I mean this place to be a critical discussion of her videos strictly. Feel free to move it to appropriate thread.

Actually , I’ve watched all her videos and she’s recommended some great budget buys too .

I LOVE her . She’s very high end though - I got a quote to be seen for a 30 min appointment and it is £395 . She is one of the top cosmetic derms .

I think she doesn’t answer a lot of random questions as: with her being a doctor she doesn’t want to have any liability for recommendations she would have to provide online - also she isn’t going to give all her advice away for free .

I remember the comment about red skin but she mentioned that in another video .

I like her but she's awkward and she seems to be obsessed with exfoliation: her face is always super red like a burn victim which she covers with foundation (but it still shows through)

She looks like a red and greasy mess in her newest video.

I do quite enjoy her videos, mainly because they are short, informative and to the point and not endless ramblings like a lot of other youtubers. That said, I don't quite understand why she thinks looking like a greasy snow globe is an attractive look? There is a fine line between looking healthy/radiant/luminous and looking like you dunked your face in a vat of oil. Her over that mad witch Hirons any day though
