Pulled it from the video's closed captions then just tried to make it easier to read with grammar but nothing else changed. Also included John's links in the body.
Edit: spacing.




Good Morning, Hank, it's Tuesday.


This video is an open letter to professional YouTubers but it's also for anyone who wants to understand the challenges of the fraught career of professional influencing.


Hi! I'm John Green. I write books and I've been making YouTube videos for more than 12 years now. Also, I'm somewhat repulsed by the word influencer it makes me feel like one of the baddies in a dystopian novel which to be fair maybe I am. But the nice thing about influencer is that it's accurate. If you have an audience, you help shape their worldview both when it comes to, like which goods and services to purchase and when it comes to what to believe and value. That's a weird job, and today I want to share with you some things I've learned about it.


First, being a professional person of the internet is not like being a doctor or a lawyer or whatever. It's more like being a professional athlete. Online careers are unpredictable and they're often short. Which isn't necessarily bad news by the way, like it can be wonderful to do many things in your professional life, but Ido think it's worth trying to learn about stuff while you are a professional influencer that can help you down the road when you are professionally something else. Whether that's social media marketing or post-production or as in my case, writing.


Secondly, many of us get absolutely no financial education in school and professional influencers tend to be young and inexperienced with money. Which one, can make it difficult to figure out how to prioritize financial stuff and two, leaves people vulnerable to exploitation. Even if like me you're aggressively bad at math, I really recommend trying to learn more about personal finance by reading books like Gabby Dunn's Bad WITH Money, listening to podcasts like Planet Money and watching YouTube shows like Two Cents and The Financial Diet. As for the people who make you money agents and managers can be wonderful advocates but remember they have no lifelong investment in you. If you cease to be a lucrative relationship for them, they can find it different you, a younger and hipper and more influential influencer. But you are your only you and ultimately that means you have to be the person to balance short-term interest and long-term interest when it comes to issues like when to turn down unsavory sponsorships.


Speaking of which, third, when it comes to money opportunities Hank always asks me two questions “Is this in line with our goals for our community?” and “Are we adding more value than we're capturing?” We've made lots of mistakes along the way. But from what kind of shirts to sell to whether to promote loot boxes, I do think we benefit a lot from asking those questions.


Okay, fourth, this did not happen because you work harder than anyone else or because you are more talented. You are talented and you do work hard but you have also been fortunate. You're fortunate to have high-speed Internet and access to editing software and you've also gotten lucky along the way in innumerable ways. Luck does not nullify hard work but hard work also does not nullify luck.


Fifth, you are a person. Those who love your work will naturally be inclined to think of you as more than a person. Which can be intoxicating. It's nice to hear that you're a literal God or the best fortnight or vlogger or whatever noun is currently being personalized, but there will also be people who think you're less than human who say that your literal trash. We don't talk about this much because it can seem like ingratitude but receiving online hate can be really scary and painful and I'm sorry if you have to live with it. In my experience it's really important to find places where you can be a person. Whether that's an anonymous Reddit account or, god forbid, offline because otherwise you can start to believe both those who think you're more than a person and those who think you're less than one.


Lastly, as my brother likes to say diversify your identity. In this world, so much of your life can become your job. Your friends and family can be involved in your job. When you take a walk, you're doing your job if you Instagram it. Your life and work can become so completely intertwined that you stop thinking of yourself as, for instance, John Green, person, husband, father, AFC Wimbledon Sponsor, a valid Hufflepuff, etc and begin to think of yourself as just John Green, YouTuber. No career can healthfully carry all your identity let alone one as weird and unpredictable as this. And so, dear influencer, I wish you the algorithms wind in your sails and a flood of new followers but most of all I wish you a long and varied life of making helpful things with nice people.


Hank, I'll see you on Friday.

So I actually emailed Halo Beauty Support and here is a copy/paste of our interaction:


I am interested in this product but I am wondering why it has copied exact images and graphs from an ingredient called ceramide-pcd?

Halo beauty is saying they are for Ceramide- RX but that is obviously not the case. I have included a link to the actual supplement where the images and graphs originated from.

This seems really bad... please explain


Their first reply came really quickly

"Support Team - HaloBeauty (HaloBeauty)
Mar 2, 14:49 PST

Hi [My name removed], We have an extract of ceramides from Japan. The ceramide-pcd is a similar trade name for the product and the supplier of the raw material is the same - Oryza in Japan.

I hope this clarifies your questions. Please let us know if there is anything else we can provide to you.

Halo Beauty Support
Halo Beauty"

I replied and asked them if this was not a unique ingredient then they responded again very quickly within 10 minutes.

"Support Team - HaloBeauty (HaloBeauty)
Mar 2, 14:58 PST

It's actually a very unique ingredient as it's extraordinarily rare, expensive, and difficult to source. We trademarked the name Ceramides-RX, as part of a distribution agreement from the manufacturer Oryza in Japan. Instead of renaming it something obscure and calling it proprietary, we were transparent about what was actually inside. Hope this helps!
Halo Beauty"

I wanted to know if they could justify the price so I responded

"Thank you so much for your speedy and polite reply!

I have one more question as you touched on it in your answer. I know the item price was attributed to the very expensive nature of Ceramide Rx, which you have now indicated is just another trade name of the Ceramide PCD.

If that is true I can buy a 30 day supply of (vegetarian capsules) Ceramide PCD for $9.00, with 100 mg of Ceramide PCD per capsule while Halo Beauty’s HSN only had 40 mg per 2 capsules and is $39.95 per 30 day supply. Why the drastically higher price?

Here is the product I am talking about:

I am not trying to be difficult, I am just legitimately trying to understand both the ingredients (which you have been very kind to explain) and now the price.


This time it took them a few hours to respond and I got this:

"Support Team - HaloBeauty (HaloBeauty)
Mar 2, 18:48 PST

I have no idea about that product, but from the surface, I guess it's only $9 because that's their only hero ingredient and their packaging is so inexpensive. We have premium packaging that's produced in a dust-free facility, and a formula that is filled in a lab in the USA under sterile conditions. The employees all wear, lab coats, gloves, hair nets and surgical masks. Regardless, I'm sorry that you're unhappy with our pricing strategy, we did the best we could do.
Halo Beauty"

TLDR: I emailed Halo Beauty to see wtf was up. Apparently Ceramide PCD and Ceramide RX are trade names of the same product form Japan. I then emailed and asked why a bottle of Ceramid PCD was 9.00 for more mg/ capsule and the same one month supply and theirs had less and was more expensive. Their response: Our Packaging is pretty and people in our labs wear PPE.

Gosh, I remember when I received Bobbi Brown's Teenage Beauty Book: Everything You Need to Know to Look Pretty, Natural, Sexy and Awesome as a gift. It was probably in 2000, when I was 18 or 19(*EDIT: I can't math, I was probably 14-15). I loved how natural the makeup applications were and the book itself was pretty empowering and had a very appropriate tone for the audience. It was also the very first time I thought about makeup application beyond: full coverage foundation goes all over face, black liner goes all over eyes, plus 7 coats of drugstore mascara = ta-da!; and I remember it totally was inspiring and fit right in with my Teen Vogue aspirations.

Kind of unrelated, but I guess before YouTube and Instagram we had... books?

Natural Vitality Natural Calm Magnesium Anti Stress, Original, 16 oz

Seriously, it is an absolute lifesaver for constipation, and works as a gentle muscle relaxant and sleep aid as well. It’s amazing. I got it because it was recommended to me for pain from TMJ disorder, but I use it more frequently for constipation than anything else! I take medication that causes chronic constipation, so this is a lifesaver. Mix two teaspoons in a bit of warm water, then add as much cold water or other drink as you want (it has just a mild acidic effervescent taste, kinda like club soda but much more mild- you can also get flavored versions but I prefer unflavored). Do this before bed and you should wake up ready to go!

(Rarely it will take two doses to get things moving, if things are really backed up- sometimes I’ll double the dose at once if I know it’s kinda severe but if it’s your first time just start with two teaspoons and see how you feel. If it’s been more than 8-10 hours you may want to take another dose, either right then or that next evening).

You can also find it at GNC and some drug stores, but I’ve found it cheapest at Wegmans. It’s in their vitamin section.

I agree with you, but I think it's interesting that since the beauty community started using it as a blender cleaner, Amazon is now marketing them as brush cleaners:

u/ablesisters · 17 pointsr/BeautyGuruChatter

Art major here, fixative is a really good idea!

That fixative you linked is resin based, and the shadow would still be a little workable/moveable under that fixative. An acrylic-based fixative spray would work better as a final sealant as it would create an almost plastic-like protective finish on the page: is one example.

No matter what fixative you're using, it's important to do a patch test first because fixatives can darken/alter the color of certain mediums. It's also important to work in light layers in a very well ventilated area!

u/PhyrraNyx · 1 pointr/BeautyGuruChatter

Hello! I'm Courtney from and PhyrraNyx on Youtube. I've been blogging for 11 years and I'm currently celebrating that milestone with a giveaway worth over $440.

I've got neutral to cool yellow olive fair skin that is dry (foundation matches include Smashbox .1, Cover FX N0, Cozzette Beauty C1, Idun Minerals Jorunn). I have rosacea, serborrheic dermatitis, and some texture.

I've got hooded eyes & I wrote a beginner's makeup book called Hooded Eyes Makeup Manual with a brush guide, eye guide, tutorials, troubleshooting tips and tricks for blending, and real results on real people.

On my Youtube Channel you'll see my 40 year old unfiltered skin up close when I do tutorials and reviews. I like bright wearable makeup looks, though I'm constantly asked to do neutral looks. I don't have any fillers or botox, but I do have eyelash extensions. I only feature cruelty-free brands and I have a One Brand Tutorial series.

NeoCell Super Collagen Powder 6,600milligram Collagen Types 1 and 3 Unflavored 7 Ounces

About a week usually. It helps to have it with vitamin C

u/SailorOwl · 118 pointsr/BeautyGuruChatter

ETA: Oh look the before and after images too Inb4 explaining it away as demonstrating the benefits of ceramide.

I did some reverse google image searching and found that one of their "scientific" chart type images appears to be ripped from another vitamin. If this was a stock photo that they purchased the rights to, then surely it wouldn't be in such a poor resolution.

Fucking wow.

u/purrlywites · 2 pointsr/BeautyGuruChatter

I do shave in the shower. I've found that wrapping a single rubber band around the handle helped me get a better grip. Mine has a very smooth metal handle and I think it would slip and cut me without the rubber band. Are you using any kind of pressure? Also, I'm no expert, but I've read that shaving creams have different 'cushion' that protects you when shaving.

Maybe you could try something like this?

u/syncopacetic · 58 pointsr/BeautyGuruChatter

It's as if she never heard of books, either. Bobbi Brown books were my lifesaver.

u/TinaTissue · 2 pointsr/BeautyGuruChatter

You really should! This is the book that I had to get to refund on three times >

This thing is nearly 2kgs! It would squish so many things and those padded bags protect nothing

u/peace-please · 25 pointsr/BeautyGuruChatter

I bought that book for my mom to read to her first grade students, and the girls love it! There's also this one that's a bit similar but focuses on women in science, and I believe they published one about women athletes this year.

I had the Benefit Kitten Classic Body Powder Puff back in the day. I bet I can find it somewhere deep in the caves of my parents' house.

u/YoAkihiko · 125 pointsr/BeautyGuruChatter

My hyperhidrosis was probably at it's worst in middle school, (I used to sweat through thick JACKETS on my armpits) I'm almost 25 now and I feel like I've tried everything under the sun. Personally the only thing that worked for me was the prescription Drysol, and funny enough I still have the same bottle since middle school. It started getting dangerously low recently so I sought an OTC alternative. After trying a bunch of failures I eventually found Driclor which seems to works just as well.

I just wanted to throw that out there in case anyone was wondering because Jackie said she had never tried them and couldn't vouch for them.

u/Aayu07 · 27 pointsr/BeautyGuruChatter

Just adding this here. Ceramide PCD study was using 350mg Tati's vitamins have 20mg x2 dosage.

Hot and flashy took phytoceramides for a while using 350 mg dosage. Not sure if she is still taking those but you can check her results.

This bottle has a 100mg dosage and a money back guarantee. I am sure ceramides can help retain moisture but you can try supplements at much cheaper cost. Also we don't know any negatives from the study since it's one study and been done 18 years ago.

Edit: I don't think her product is bad but it is priced high unlike claims it is not. Her launch and explanations are bullshit. Her marketing them as magic and not just citing study for what is it, causes misinformation. The idea was bad and the execution worse. Sadly as a viewer I would hv liked if she informed me what her ingredients are along with the goods and the bads and why she chose to create abrand when there are already so many in the market.

Edit 2: 350 mg is for wheat based phytoceramides and not rice based.

Edit 3: hotandflashy confirmed she's still taking phytoceramides for 6 months a year in winters, from September - March. She said that they help her skin stay more hydrated in the winters.

It's not a known thing in the US but in France and Morocco it's an open secret. As in any pedophilia case involving higher ups, it's near impossible to find tangible proofs, but people talk. The news broke after Pierre Bergé, YSL ex husband, died and their former lover/employee published a book where he mentions the time he saw someone at their property get a blow job from an underaged boy, and YSL brushed it off as no big deal when said employee told him. The author doesn't give names, but he gives a lot of hints that Bergé was basically a sick fuck.

Here are some highly respected sources from the french press that talk about the book:

Pierre Bergé was a confortable misogynist, like that time he said "rent your womb for a baby or rent your hands in a factory, what's the difference?" I don't know, something about him putting babies and factories in the same sentence creeps the hell outta me. Link (in french again, sorry):,pierre-berge-pma-gpa-louer-son-ventre,20123,680919.asp

The graphic novel by YSL is a real thing. If you don't wanna check it on google pics, just read the reviews: There's a disclaimer in it that it's based on true events. Maybe he was joking, maybe he was not.

As I said I am Moroccan and I know more about it, I'm a journalist with an interest in children's rights. After the 2004 tsunami, Morocco surpassed Thailand in child prostitution and replaced it as a sexual tourism destination. There's a documentary on Youtube about child prostitution in Marrakech (where YSL used to live) and you can see a father following a tourist and asking him how much he wants to pay and how old does he wants the kid to be (I'll link it if needed). Every now and then, someone gets caught or there's a known french politician mentioned, he threatens to sue for diffamation and everyone shuts up. But it's always the same goddamn names.

I've explained my personal reasons to why I boycott this specific brand. I don't urge anyone to do the same. But knowing that a kid (at least one) was harmed like this and it was brushed off as not a big deal, is one of the very few things that keep awake at night. I know he's dead but I don't want to see his name in my house, it's a visceral thing. I also don't encourage anyone to take any decisions without any kind of proof, boycotting it is my personal choice based on my values and what I know.

Idk how many of you all watch Hot Ones on YouTube, but I just ate some of Da Bomb Beyond Insanity, and holy shit that was rough. The taste is very bitter and goes away quickly, leaving nothing in your mouth but straight heat that gets worse and worse as time goes on. When I first ate it, it wasn't so bad but THAT SHIT'S DECEIVING. I cried for a full 10 minutes, and the pain didn't go away until 20 minutes. I was physically shaking all over (hands, arms, legs), I have the chills now, I hear a ringing in my ears, and some mild heart burn.

I understand why so many guests have a tough time with Da Bomb, and I have mad respect for Sean Evans being able to talk through that.
