Leak Reveals Valkyrae's Thoughts on Rflc

Valkyrae is trying to get out of her RFLCT skincare deal. 

While initially struggling to maintain an average viewer count of 5,000 towards the beginning of 2020, her YouTube channel experienced a significant boost when she started playing the online multiplayer social deduction game Among Us and began collaborating with popular streamers including Disguised Toast, Sykkuno, Pokimane, Jacksepticeye, Cr1TiKaL, Corpse Husband, xChocoBars, and Fuslie. 

Valkyrae is not yet free from the RFLCT skincare controversy. The new skincare brand by Ideavation Labs is under fire after it made dubious claims surrounding the effects of artificial blue light on skin. Variety streamer Atrioc accidentally leaked private DMs between Valkyrae and Twitch personality Ludwig yesterday. (Source: dotesports.com)

Atrioc was using Ludwig’s computer during a Twitch Rivals stream and revealed Ludwig’s Discord app, which showed messages between Ludwig and Valkyrae. When the leak occurred, Ludwig was hosting a Fall Guys tournament with a $50,000 prize pool. A number of top streamers participated, including xQc, Sykkuno, BrookeAB, and MoistCr1TiKaL.

On October 19, 2021, RFLCT, Valkyrae’s skincare collection, was announced. It was marketed as “the skincare collection for everyone who uses a screen.” The advert claimed that the product was “designed to protect your skin against blue light,” and that blue light can damage skin. It describes ingredients such as BLPF (Blue Light Prevention Factor), and RE3 (a blend of rice extracts). Many responses to the video described it as a scam, and criticised the quality of the website’s sources, which include WebMD.

On the day of product launch, Valkyrae shared her excitement on Twitter: "i can't stop crying.. this has been a long journey with my team; testing, samples, meetings, chemists & Claudia Poccia teaching/guiding me through the skincare industry."

The leaked DMs between Valkyrae and Ludwig were only on screen for a second, but enough was shown to reveal Valkyrae’s thoughts on the ongoing controversy. Valkyrae told Ludwig that she trusted her team and believed the research she had been shown, a sentiment she also expressed emphatically during her YouTube stream on Oct. 23. Ludwig expressed empathy for Valkyrae’s situation and shared his thoughts on RFLCT manufacturer Ideavation Labs.
