YouTube Videos I Do Not Have Time For

I'm sure I am not alone when I say I spend HOURS every week watching YouTube videos... what can I say? I just cannot resist a "What am not gonna buyyyy" video (Sung in Kimberly Clark style of course) But there is a whole load of videos that I just cannot stand anymore, even looking at their title I think BLECH! So I thought I would put them all together in one list, and you can add things in which you cannot stand too, so we can all be negative together! 

I find the videos I hate to watch are the filler videos YouTubers use when they cannot think of anything actually creative or useful to make a video about - the lazy content. And the minute I see them showing up on my subscription box I will unsubscribe - I ain't got time for that. Be creative and fun. 

1. Applying Makeup With ANYTHING other than a Brush/Sponge. 
NO ONE CARES. I do not want to watch you apply your makeup using cutlery, the wrong hand, your shoes, your boyfriends testicle. Just STOP. These videos serve no purpose, at all. No one wants to watch them, they are overdone and so not fun to watch. 

2. Testing Candy/Food From *Insert Country* 
*sigh* I really like sweeties, but I have zero interest in watching anyone eat anything on youtube. EVER. I do not care if you haven't tried them, or if they were expensive, please don't upload this rubbish. If you want to binge eat sweets do it in your own time like the rest of us. 

3. Boyfriend/Brother/Dad Does My Makeup 
Again, its overused... and just feels a bit pointless. The only time this is fun is when their other half is constantly in the videos (Like Tati & James) - but otherwise it may be funny to you - but chances are it isn't funny to the rest of us. 

4. Boyfriend/Brother/Dad does my Voice Over 
Same as above. Most boys don't understand, we get it. But don't make us listen to it, I want to know what that eyeshadow is, not your dads description of "oh the brown one" 

5. Asos Hauls Where You Return 90% of the items
Anyone can spend £500 on Asos and return it all, I want to see the bits your actually going to keep, to see how you style them or wear them, not order them and watch you return them - just completely pointless. 

6. "I'm Quitting YouTube" 
This one one video I will actually click on, to make sure you are actually quitting. And if you are not - I am unsubscribing... because I don't have time for attention seeking on YouTube. Wanna quit? Go ahead, I ain't begging you to stay. 

7. *Insert Clickbait* 
Looking at you Saccone-Joly's - you are the WORST. You know its bad when you click on the video, don't bother watching it and just read the comments to see what actually happened - rather than wasting your 20 minutes over a "IS IT TIME?" - no it isn't. 

8. What Is On My iPhone
We all know the only reason you are showing us what is on your phone is to tell us about Audible or some game, shopping app... oh the sponsorship is endless, either way i'm not watching. If I wanted to see what was on a phone I would look at my own :)

If you liked this post check out this one >> The Things That Annoy Me About (Big) YouTubers

What things annoy you about YouTube? I would love to know, let me know in the comments below :) 



  1. Are you in my mind?I agree with all the above plus I don't like the "What's in my mail" videos(Julia Graf makes a lot of these).Like what's the point in showing me all the random stuff companies have sent you if you haven't tried any of them yet and can't review them?
    Also since I also watch tech videos I have to mention the ones where they set on fire or put in the microwave etc their phones.What's the point in trashing an iphone like that?
    Anyway I really enjoyed your post :)!

  2. Everything is spot on! I personally hate Asos hauls where they return almost everything back like what's the point???? It annoys me to no end.


  3. I personally hate the tasting other countries Candy or bf does my makeup it's so stupid!

  4. I hate the tasting candy from other Countries, it's so pointless. The applying makeup with *insert* is possibly the worst though, they aren't ever going to use that item again to apply their makeup even if it was good so save your time

  5. Totally agree, you are spot on with all these xxx

  6. Yes, Erin, you did it again and I agree with you. Some of the videos I found funny at the beginning but not now. Before I watched almost everything, but lately? I'm very picky about how I'm gonna spend my precious free time.

  7. Yes! Click bait titles need to stop, it's so boring x

  8. This made me laugh 😂 so much of this drives me mad especially the click bait ones!!! "I'm pregnant?!" oh wait no, I ate too much at lunch haha! NO, stop!!

  9. Oh god the click bait titles really wind me up, I even came across a video with 'the baby nearly drowned' with the poor baby as the thumbnail. It was so distressing. Also hate the 'im quitting youtube' titles too. So irritating and attention seeking x

  10. I agree to certain extent. I watch different videos to suit my different moods but click baites make me want to barf too! Lol x

  11. I hate videos with click bait titles, that's why I stopped watching the lovely sacconejolys x

  12. I don't like the 'free makeup YouTubers get' type posts. It makes it seem like no work goes into it at all. It promotes the belief that all bloggers want 'free' stuff. Also, the cutting expensive things up with knife trend is ridiculously wasteful.

  13. I could have written this! I'll add the 100 layers of *insert product here* videos - jut gross! xx

  14. LOL yes agree with all of the above!! I've only just starting doing YT and therefore am watching it a lot more - my god some of the crap on there xx

  15. I am sick of seeing the applying makeup ones with weird objects, like why would you?! It is desperate for views. Drives me insane.


  16. This post arrives right at the moment where I'm starting to get a little bit bored with YouTube, I just feel like a lot of YouTubers do the same videos over and over again at the moment. A lot of beauty YouTubers also try to expand their channels to fashion and lifestyle content, and it just gives videos with extremely little content and I cannot take these seriously. Thankfully, some of them stay out of all the tricks listed above (clickbait are the worst!). I really enjoyed this post :)


  17. I'm so with you on this! Number 4 and 5 are so over-used that they all just become the same! And don't even get me started on clickbait... x

  18. I haaaaaate the applying makeup with random objects, it's just pointless! Great list they're some trends that just really need to disappear xx

  19. I'm a sucker for most Youtube videos and watch them all but click bait ones are really annoying. Especially from Youtubers I really like!

  20. I cannot stand click bait titles it drives me mad!!! This made me laugh so much xxx

  21. I hate the attention seeking story time videos. I mean yes some of them are genuine and interesting but the things like Storytime- I NEARLY GOT KIDNAPPED when really a guy probably just looked at them in the shops. Just please fucking stop xx

  22. It's very rare I even bother to watch a YouTube video 🙈

  23. I'm not a fan of testing foods from other countries videos either! I just don't find them interesting at all. X

  24. I completely agree with you on all of these, I mean who wants to see makeup applied with anything other than a sponge or a brush? I can't stand click bait titles either.

  25. Omg!!!! I agree with everything you said! I watch YouTube practically every night and hate all of the above lol

  26. I completely agree with you, these videos have all been overdone!

    Georgia x

  27. I LOVE THIS POST! I can't stand any of these videos either, I have no idea how anyone can sit through one, or even click on one for that matter. Clickbait is my one true hatred.


  28. I haaaate the first one. Never ever would I apply my makeup with anything other than a sponge or brush so just seems so pointless! X

  29. Oh my goodness, nodding along to ALL of the points you made, hon. I have actually noticed how much my YouTube subscriptions & watching changed. Especially after I started blogging. I don't have time for so many YouTubers and their content, and I don't just mean physical time, of course. "I'm quitting YT" ones are only good if the person is actually quitting (is that too harsh to say that? lol). As for the voiceovers, there was once ONE really funny one I watched but that's because they guy (YouTuber's husband) actually has such a fab and funny personality. Others were not too great. Click bait ones are a massive no-no.
    Thanks for sharing this list, babe!! Perfect evening chill out read :)

  30. Completely agree and could everyone stop shouting in videos - holy crap my nerves are shot haha!

  31. Clickbait titles annoy me so much but they do suck me in! Also can't be bothered with the trying food from other countries vids either!

  33. I agree with most of these. I don't understand "what's on my iPhone" videos at all - I'd rather someone just did a round up of helpful apps, that's cool, but I don't really understand them otherwise. I have to say though, I really like the "[insert person] does my makeup" videos, I actually think they are quite cute! I like that you get to see a couple interact with each other and have a bit of a giggle, but each to their own! xx

  34. This is so funny and so true! I'm so tired of the click bait!

  35. Haha completely agree with all of these!


  36. The sweet tasting one is horrifically overdone, and the same couple of products always seem to get used! Also (x) does my make-up are really boring, but you can sometimes get some hilarious ones. At the moment, stuff from eBay videos are really grinding my gears, like testing eBay make-up.
