While, yes, that is a hefty price, it really isn't that uncommon for a 100g cream. I use a 60g cream that costs about 22$. Moisturizers are expensive. If you're not using a drugstore brand you're probably going to pay about 20~30$. In a lot of cases you'll actually pay even more. While Neogen obviously isn't Sulwhasoo or anything, it's still not Innisfree. And even their skin care can be a bit pricey depending on which range you chose from. I honestly don't fault her for that price. And while one can argue about it's effectiveness, there are a lot of suuuper expensive products out there that have a tonne of fragnance and irritants in their formulation. Skin care is in a lot of ways big in the marketing world. Heck, even Chanel has a tonne of skin care and make up products that seem to do nothing for anyone and still charge a fortune while Wet'n'Wild or The Ordinary might have better options for your needs.
I have to say though, heads up for Erin! If she really brought this idea up she seems to be a very generous friend. She's basically helping Joan do her job. Joan always says how Erin is working so hard and coming home at around 4am in the morning and now she scored this new job at Neogen and seems to be working her way up. It's really nice of her to help to further her friends career.
If her jaw is hurting that much, I guess it's inevitable for her to lose weight. I mean, it really seems to be quite bad recently, as you can even notice how "shifted" her jaw looks as an outsider. She must be in a lot of pain. I wouldn't eat properly either if I were her. I've noticed that she puts a lot of pressure on her jaw and seems to push her teeth together (maybe even grind them) when she's concentrated. Especially when she puts on her skincare or make up. Instead of investing in luxury goods she should consider investing in her health longterm. I wouldn't wish that kind of pain and the stress it causes on anyone.
Honestly, here I can even see the resemblance between Joan and Jisoo (in the second picture). Slightly, but still. And we need to remember that Joans dermatologist is not a dermatologist, but a beautician. And she might've misunderstood, because while pores don't open and close, they do tighten when you put cold water on them. Your skin generally feels really firm and tight once you put something cold on it. She should've fact checked herself before repeating wrong information.
Oh gee... guys... I just watched friends the whole day (I know, I know...) but.... Chandler broke up with a girl in season 2. Her name is Joan. He breaks up with her because of her huge nostrils. Now this is super mean, but since people have been saying that Joan has rather large nostrils I immediately had to think of the forum. I though it was quite funny.... m sorry.
I saw her stories on Instagram two days ago and I had my sound off. I thought she talked about something over her, because she kept pointing. She did it again and again so I turned the sound on to find out what was going on. And she didn't talk about anything that would've required pointing at the camera aggressively. I was super confused and turned off, so I skipped the rest. Today I looked at her stories again and she was pointing aggressively AGAIN. I can't unsee it now! Why is she doing this constantly? It looks like she is lecturing us? It's weird and quite aggressive. I don't know if this is a cultural thing, but if I used my finger to point like her all the time while talking, my mom would tell me to stop pointing at her and find a more pleasant way to talk hahaha. Wait.. Am I the weird one?
I feel exactly the same way as you, kittycat007! The winter vlogs with Erin, when they spent hours walking around town, visiting this really mesmerizing museum where they talked to the artists there and when they were visiting very unique and beautiful cafés, restaurants etc. I really miss those times, but then, nowadays I think it might've been Erin who made those vlogs enjoyable. She seems like such a lovely and hardworking person. She seems to enjoy art and I find her appreciating beauty in a more sincere way than Joan ever has. She's intelligent and cultured and never really seems to judge anyone. She never judged Joan for her decisions and she never seemed bitchy. I'm glad she has her own channel now. Oh, and I felt kind of bad recently when people said Joan spends too much time at Gentle Monster. We don't have one where I'm from (though other beautiful concept stores) and I loooooove this store. Tamburins as well! It's so innovative and creative and beautiful to look at. They had incredible artists visiting the store a while back, live painting on glass walls and people. They had beautiful art performances, and I generally love the idea of interactive art. I'd move in if I could hahaha. But for vlogs it definitely gets old.
I mean, yeah, she's been pretty rough with her skin and she's not using sunscreen properly (which gives me a headache knowing she grew up in sunny California), buuuut... some things are absolutely and 100% genetic. Sure, using skin care appropriately will help prevent them from worsening (or even more important, help you to not get skin cancer in the future, which is the most important aspect) but especially things like heavy lines under your eyes, smile lines and sometimes even wrinkles on your forehead are genetic. If that area of her face is generally deeper (face structure) it's going to show lines. I also find it a bit hypocritical to make fun of some YouTubers for getting work done on their face and in the same breath recommending it to someone, or even making fun of that person, when they themselves might've never felt insecure about it in the first place. I'm not talking about anyone in this forum, or anyone specific at all. It's just an overall trend I've been noticing, even in YouTube comments and I find it very toxic.
She does look quite a bit like Joan! But like she's her prettier younger sister. With beautiful well cared for hair.. and pretty brows. JOAN... look! Do your brows like hers! It would really benefit your look! I think she'd look quite pretty with silky, evenly coloured hair and well formed brows.
The girl with the white skirt and baby blue shirt resembles Joan a tiny bit as well, and she's super beautiful.
What shocked me was that the photo was supposed to be an advertisement for Laneige wtf. The lip mask was the last thing that drew my eye to it. If I worked at Laneige (holla me up people, I love your brand haha) I would ask her to take it down and take a new picture that really focusses on the product and suits the brand image, which is very classy and clean.
Hmm, I think you're on to something Serenity. It couldn't have been accidental that Abe recreated more or less the exact same look. Joan was probably sponsored, but since it wasn't screaming Blackpink she made her brother act like he was picking out the outfits when she only wanted to recreate the exact same outfit on the website (low effort, gets paid, gets to say it's not her "regular" style while still getting that coin). Some brands do actually have super weird wishes for their videos. Like.. make it seem like you didn't get it sent from us, make it look this and that way, post it on this and that day, incorporate it into something else.. stuff like that, but then they tell that to 200 influencers so we end up with the same "not sponsored" video by all of the famous gurus.
I'm sorry, I know this is mean, I know I'm usually a softy and feel bad about everything and what not but OOOOOH MY GOD DOES SHE LOOK STUPID IN THAT SECOND PICTURE I'm soooo sorry but.... what's thaaaaat? She doesn't even look this stupid in real life. It's just that picture! The first one is fine. Vaseline heh, classy. And if she really dated Junoflo and he cheated, gurls gonna fuuuuume after the picture he posted together with Blackpink hehe
I mean, in some way it links up with her saying that she's had a tough time recently. But honestly, I think they probably "dated" for two months tops. And then he went on to another girl. So how does it explain her comment about dating while broadcasting? Well, she probably had a boyfriend back then, for a few months tops, but they broke up shortly after she gained more subscribers. That's the only way her schedule could be explained. And Joan.. you're not sassy. And we've seen it. You're just a mean bitch to your friends sometimes.
