Trisha Paytas is bringing back her controversial skincare line.
The YouTuber revealed on Instagram that her “new and improved” collaboration with Glow Skin Enhancement will be returning next week.
“With so many great products, including the Miracle Bar which I’ve talked about in almost every video when people ask me about my skin,” Trisha wrote. “So excited to bring this back to everyone who’s been asking.”
Trisha launched the Miracle Elixir line in June 2021 in collaboration with Glow Skin Enhancement, an LA-based skincare business owned and founded by Charlotte Wilson.
Fans questioned the brand from the start when Trisha released a promotional video for the products that “changed her life”, all the while using heavy makeup, blurring filters, and obvious post-production editing. The Miracle Elixir line seemed to be targeted towards clearing acne, something Trisha has openly struggled with for years. However, many fans pointed to Trisha’s public endorsement of chemical peels, saying it’s misleading to claim these products helped them get their acne “under control”.
Other fans took the video as a parody of the cringy style of beauty commercials of the past.
Months later, concerns around the line’s efficacy and formulation emerged following several troubling reviews— including one TikTok user who claimed the line gave her chemical burns.
Other concerns came from skincare experts, like YouTuber James Welsh who questioned the SPF content in the Miracle Elixir Tinted Day Cream, which claimed to be SPF30.
Esthetician Cassandra Bankston also criticised Trisha’s products at the time of launch — noting that the Miracle Elixir line did not declare its product ingredients as industry standards require.
On September 16th, the entire skincare range was removed from the Glow Skin Enhancement website. Soon after, Trisha went on live to discuss the decision to stop selling the Miracle Elixir.
“The Miracle Elixir is offline for now. I want to bring it back because like, I do use it daily. I love my skincare line. And of course, trolls ruined that too,” she said. “It just sucks because people will literally make up like, ‘I bought this and it burnt my skin’.”
Trisha said that those who claimed to have issues with her skincare line could not provide proof or further information.
Despite Trisha’s Instagram caption insinuating that people were asking for the line to come back, several people have taken to her comment section to warn others from purchasing the range.
“All they are doing is reselling the same leftovers from last year’s flop. They put it away and saved it for when the hate died down on Trish. Now that she’s a mom and trying to be a family channel they are acting like this is so different and gonna sell like crazy. It’s so scammy. She also got a facial last week to try to act like she has great skin from this,” wrote one user.
“Steer clear away from these products there are multiple serious allegations against this skincare line check out trishylandwifeys on r3ddit for the truth. Beware!!!” wrote another.
Trisha has not responded to the backlash at the time of writing.
