In the video, Brown starts by misting her face and lightly scrubbing it, followed by a face wash application. "I'm really excited to use it because I do still feel some of the makeup on," she claimed. But as the video proceeded, viewers noticed Brown still had on her dark lashes and eyeliner.
As reported by Mashable, the original Instagram video was removed but a copy persists on YouTube. Comments flooded in, with fans expressing disbelief and skepticism.

She explained that her intention was to replicate her personal process, but acknowledged that it didn't come across as intended. Brown appreciated the feedback and encouraged fans to continue sharing their thoughts, proving she's willing to learn from her mistakes.
This incident shines a spotlight on the need for celebrities to portray realistic skincare routines, especially when promoting their own product lines.
