LYON, FRANCE — A French YouTuber has landed in hot water after a poorly-researched beauty tip resulted in some of her fans apparently getting burned, according to a report by L'Express.

In a video posted last week YouTuber Marie Lopez, better known as EnjoyPhoenix recommended four "natural" homemade face cream recipes. Among her DIY facemasks was one made of just cinnamon and honey.

Despite Lopez's claims to her nearly 2 million subscribers regarding cinnamon's apparent antioxidant and regenerative characteristics, several of her fans have reported that smearing the easy-to-make concoction all over their faces resulted in them getting burned.

Turns out, as French dermatologists, reacting to EnjoyPhoenix's poorly thought out recommendation, told local press, cinnamon is harmful to the skin and may cause allergic reactions in some.

Luckily there have been no reported incidents of serious injuries amongst Lopez's impressionable legion of fans, so the 20-year-old has taken the opportunity to swing by Facebook to defend herself.

In a post responding to the mini-controversy Lopez partially passed the buck onto fans who might've been burned themselves, noting that they OBVIOUSLY should've tested the mask on their skin before fully applying it.
