You may have seen this SkinnyMint post that was shared on Facebook.
But for those who don’t know about it, my friend sent this ss in group chat to notified us about a women who was hospitalized for a week and 4 days of coma after consuming SkinnyMint. Wondered how true is this?
Just to clarify, I did a review for them in May 2014 but it wasn’t for their new improved formula. There was no side effect for me in the past till they changed to the improved formula, which I experienced severe cramping from their night cleanse. After that, I googled for customer reviews online and found out I wasn’t the only one who experienced this.
Eugene’s mom bought SkinnyMint after seeing their adverts on Facebook, and she got severe cramping from it. Which is why she asked me to stop taking it, as it’s not good for my health.
So… As for the dishonest blogger topic.
It really get on my nerves that I got to see what’s really happening in the industry.
There are countless of people who want to be a bloggers nowadays, in fact anyone that has a blog called themselves a blogger now. I mean… who doesn’t want to be a blogger. There is free products, numerous of attractive sponsors and you’ll earn money when client wants you to blog about their product/services.
And, most of these people will do whatever they can just to get fame, sponsor and money.
1) Fake it till you make it. Buy likes, followers and blog hits.
2) Astrosurfing. A dishonest practice which Xiaxue
mentioned her in “The Big Gushcloud Exposé” post here.
3) Make friends with someone popular and ride on their fame.

The girl who shared and commented “LOL like I said SkinnyMint no use at all” on Facebook, is actually someone who does advert for SkinnyMint ever since their old packaging till the new improved formula. How is it possible that someone who did a certain amount of advert for them since 10 months ago, can’t determine whether if the product is useful?
Instagram advert that she did for SkinnyMint:
It’s so confusing, because all the Instagram advert she did for SkinnyMint’s old and new improved formula. She clearly claimed that it worked!
I will never get it why would anyone advertise a product for such a long period and said that it didn’t work, isn’t this lying to her readers? This just showed how desperate one can get for money.
Bloggers (or normal model/girls who have a little amounts of followers) that lack of ethics in the industry should be exposed, as most of them wouldn’t even give a flying fuck about their followers, that’s why they would use any unethical means to earn quick cash and lying about the product to make it seems like a genuine review is just part of it.
Companies should really consider on who they should hire, there are tons of better blogger out there, who is even more famous and honest which I can easily name a few here, if you want to get free or cheap nobody.
Then this is what you’ll get… A second-rated blogger.
Unethical bloggers should tie up with unethical agencies.
