Vasseurbeauty - Brittany Vasseur

Post by smartypants » Sun Dec 01, 2019 4:26 am

I couldn't find a thread about her. I actually do like her, a lot. I think that she and her family is adorable. Also, she is beautiful and intelligent. I hope for her that she will conceive a healthy baby and that everything continues in a good way for her. I won't critique her for her pesonal family life choices, because I don't know why she does sometimes stuff she does. It is up to her.

BUT

I cannot stand her overconsumption. She buys stuff a lot, like, all the time. It is getting out of hand. I get that she is a bit of a review channel... but she overdoes it. For me personally, she has an unhealthy relationship with online shopping. We live in an era where trash in oceans, landfills, deforestation, child labor and much more are a real problem we could actually help to get rid of. Not everything in life has to be made easy. There is no need for so many gadgets. It baffles me how she chooses to buy that much, then claim she is frugal. How so?
Also... the whole hype with essential oils. My heart sunk a bit when she announced it back then, the same with Tatis pills.
No mather what, for me, theese will always be "scam products".

I wanted to open this conversation a long time ago, but had not the gut to do it. I really like her, but the overconsumption and constant ads for amazon is too much. We all know how amazon works. Maybe it is different in the US, but I know from personal experience that the workers aren't threated good there.

I do like her content & it really motivates me to get my stuff together.

However, her content is very repetitive. Do we really need “20 organization ideas” for every single room? Most of them contain the same “put them into bins & categorize” tip anyway. These videos plus the whole “clean with me”, “DIY cleaning”, “DIY organizing” thing is just getting old at this point. It’s overkill & most of the tips are recycled over & over again.

I’m still subscribed to her & have been an OG subscriber. However, if this continues, I’m gonna unsubscribe. I get having a channel theme, but repetitive content just wastes everyone’s time & that contradicts the whole purpose of her channel- to make life easier & save time.

I agree with your overconsumption thing too. Making already easy stuff arguably easier to do by spending money on it is counterproductive.

I agree with everything you said. It is sooo repetitive. I guess it works for her. I mean, her channel has grown a lot since I subscribed. I am an OG sub too. The video that made me almost unsubscribe was the last one with her mom where she made a surprise update about her moms' clutter room. I couldn't believe it. I am a really clean and minimalist person, but I was so angry with Brittany. She kind of shames her mom and intrudes her privacy.
I don't think that her mom agrees actually with all of that. I think she just lets her do whatever she wants. The before and after was awesome, but if her mom is a horder and doesn't hurt anyone with it - let her be. :roll:
