Discover beauty through professional reviews
Hello Earth friends 🙂 welcome to my Beautytap profile! I am a 24 year old woman who has been on the journey to cloudless skin since I was 13, when I first began experiencing acne and rosacea. The next eight years were rough, to say the least.
One of my life goals is to be a beacon of skin care knowledge, and use that knowledge to help as many people as possible feel confident in their skin.
Other than top quality skin care, my happiness in life comes from plants, crystals, animals, a yummy hot meal, collecting mugs, and spending time with my two sisters. I live in Florida, so with the beautiful scenery comes intense sunlight, and I have learned a thing or two about the importance of protecting my skin.
I would love to connect with you! Send me a message about anything and everything, life is too short to not have meaningful conversations.
All my Love ~

A Brand that Cares about the African Community – True Moringa
I have become a serious fan of oils for hydration, and am also trying to do what I can to support Black communities during a time where so many companies mistreat their people who make their business possible.

The Dirty Truth About “Clean Beauty”: What to Know to Make an Informed Decision
What’s just as important as your skin care routine and products you use? The food and liquids you put into your body! My mother made smoothies for my sisters and I as children, and as I have grown I continued to make them because it is truly the easiest way to consume a large amount of fruits, vegetables, and even nuts and seeds. I would love to help you create your own smoothie routine! Also, can’t forget how important a healthy 7-9 hours of sleep every night is. The skin is the body’s largest organ, and it is highly impacted by what you put into your body and how well your brain is able to function. Taking care of your body results in better skin health.
Has your mask been causing skin problems? Beautytap talks with doctors about how to best help your skin with irritation and break outs.
“Restoring the skin’s natural barrier function is key, so use a moisturizer that is designed for your specific skin type. Products containing r hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid) and ceramides help the skin retain moisture and fight irritation. For spot treating, she suggests applying hydrocolloid patches over open break-outs to protect them from further irritation. These dots help to absorb moisture and flatten the blemishes.”

This Is How I (Finally) Got My Man Into a Skincare Routine
Something I have avoided for years is wearing sunscreen on my face. They all leave a residue, a white cast, smell awful, you know how it goes. I have avoided going to the beach or amusement parks for the sole reason that I didn’t want to wear sunscreen because I couldn’t also wear makeup over it to cover my hyperpigmentation and blemishes. While doing what I can to treat those problems so I may eventually be able to go without foundation, K-Beauty is coming through with products that are very promising for those like me!

K-Beauty is far more than just the products we use, it’s a lifestyle!

This article goes over the basics of a K-Beauty skin care routine- not products, but fundamental procedure.

Worries of preservatives in your products? Understandable, but Beautytap has come to this conclusion based on all the information available to them! Hopefully this will soothe any anxiety surrounding this issue.
“The potential risks of standard preservatives are iffy at best, unsupported by research or regulatory bodies, and typically propagated via misinterpretations of research. Meanwhile, the risks of bacterial growth and mold colonies in my skincare are very real. The choice between unpronounceable substances in an ingredients list and chunks of stringy mystery growth in my serums is clear to me. I’ll take the preservatives I can’t pronounce any day.”
