Gold Coast influencer Sophie Guidolin is called out for her VERY dubious sponsored post about a skincare product


Sophie Guidolin is being accused of duping her followers after filming a video of herself using skincare products.

The 32-year-old shared a sponsored post to Instagram for Skóra Skincare, rubbing their blemish spot remover on a pimple on the left side of her chin.

The following day, she claimed the product had worked but shared a photo of the opposite side of her face.

Instagram star Kurt Coleman also commented on the post: ‘That’s cracking me up.’

Model Jessie Gurunathan wrote: ‘Wait, what the heck did I just watch?! Does she really think she’s fooled us switching face sides? This is too much for a Sunday.’

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Sophie for comment.

It comes after Sophie was accused of ‘cultural appropriation’ after asking her followers if she should dress up as Pocahontas or Princess Jasmine for a Halloween party.

She posted a poll on Instagram Stories so fans could help her decide, but she faced criticism because she is white and Pocahontas and Princess Jasmine are both women of colour.

Pocahontas was a Native American woman from the 17th century whose life story was fictionalised in the 1995 Disney film of the same name. Princess Jasmine is a fictional Arabian character from the 1992 Disney animation Aladdin.

Over Influencers, an Instagram account that documents social media gaffes, reposted Guidolin’s poll, leading some critics to accuse her of cultural insensitivity. 

‘It’s 2021. People have been pulled up for this before. What planet are you living on to think this is still okay? Let me guess, they’re white girls making a way as influencers living on the Gold Coast,’ one person commented.

‘The two princesses you just shouldn’t dress up as,’ another wrote.

‘Why not just go ‘black-face’? Would be same-same. #fail,’ a third added.
