Discover beauty through professional reviews
I am a Licensed Esthetician. I was licensed and trained in Arizona and worked for an acne specialist in Scottsdale for 2 years before moving back to Nebraska. I now have my own business and specialize in acne, facials, microdermabrasion, chemical peels and dermaplaning.
What makes me unique from everyone else? First off, the reason I got into the skincare industry is because I struggled (and still do struggle) with acne my whole life. I finally found someone who got me clear and it truly changed my life! I became so passionate about what she did that I wanted to go back to school and be able to help people with their skin and maybe even change their life like it did for me! I am knowledgeable in products, ingredients, skin concerns and what it takes to get the best results!
As your personal beauty advisor, I want to help you achieve success with your beauty needs. Please message me with any questions you may have. I am here to help you!

Ever since I became a Beauty Advisor for Beautytap, I’ve been learning so much about Korean beauty and why it’s so popular!
Some trends that I’ve been trying and loving so far are the hydrating facial mists, sheet masks, cleansing balms and oils and patting serums into the skin instead of rubbing.
I have noticed my skin is much more smooth, my pores look smaller and my texture looks more even and glowy. Thank you Beautytap and helping me achieve the term “glass skin!”
Sunday’s skincare routine! 🤍Top left picture: Epicuren’s Chai Soy Mud Mask to exfoliate and help with my blackheads and oil.🤍Top right: Whamisa’s Organic Hydrogel Sheet Mask to help with sebum (oil) production, reduce pore size and hydrate.🤍Bottom left: AZN’s Hydrogel Eye Patch to help with fine lines, dark circles and puffiness around the eyes.🤍Bottom right: AZN’s Afterglow Ampoule to help with uneven texture, brown spots and give my skin a glow. After all this, my skin felt sooo smooth after and ready to take on the week!
Did you know that as we get older, the rate of our skin’s cellular turnover decreases?!
So what does that mean and how does delayed turnover impact your skin??
As cellular turnover slows down, dead cells accumulate on the surface causing your skin to get fine lines, wrinkles, sag and look and feel more dry. It also can trigger pores to enlarge and become more clogged with dead skin cells and oil. This means bacteria can become trapped, causing breakouts and inflammation!
That’s why it’s important to use exfoliants or masks at home or seek professional treatments. Any type of exfoliation is going to help loosen the dead skin cells and allow new skin cells to rise to the surface!

I love doing progress pictures so I can remember what my skin looked like before and how it’s progressively getting better til I get the results I want! I am SO happy with the results so far!!!These are the main things I notice when I look in the mirror now:
1. Dark spots are fading
2. Texture looks smoother and brighter
3. Tone looks more even
4. Fine lines don’t look as pronounced or deep
This product is a must in your regimen if you want to improve dark spots, dullness, dryness and elasticity!!
This past week was the time of the month so I had some whiteheads on my chin and feet very oily. I ended up popping one on my chin and then put the acne patch on it. I left it on all day and this is what it looked like when I took it off! All the gunk/puss was sucked out of it and left on the patch! 👀It was quite satisfying (hehe), but now I know the patches work when you just pop a zit and want to get the rest of the puss out and also when you want the zit to heal!
So I was really intrigued by these patches to see how they work! I tried them a few times to see what worked best. The first time was when I had a cystic breakout under the skin on my chin. The second was when I popped my pimple. I found that it worked better when I put the patch on the breakout that had already been popped. It was more of a healing patch for the breakout instead of essentially putting it on and making the zit go away (wouldn’t that be nice!). I used it when I wore makeup but you couldn’t see it because I was wearing a mask all day so that was nice. I would suggest using these when your doing things around the house and need an extra boost to help and heal your breakouts[Read more]
So excited to incorporate these products in my treatments for clients! Summertime can be challenging when it comes to exfoliation so these will be great for clients who want a minimal exfoliation and no downtime. These are great for those who have excess sebum (oil), enlarged pores and active breakouts. Especially now when we’re wearing masks all the time and it’s so hot and humid out! My clients are going to love this!! ❤️
I hate to admit it, but this was my first time trying a sheet mask. Sounds crazy but I have the most sensitive and acne prone skin that I am always nervous to try new masks but this was one was amazing!! It was so cooling (which is great for the summer) and refreshing and left my skin so smooth and rejuvenated. This was the purify pore sheet mask that came as a free sample in my purchase. Safe to say I’ll be doing more of these in the future!
First purchase made and holy cow!! I can’t believe all the samples and freebies I got! I purchased the Celldown Nourishing Cream and the SanDaWha Vitamin C Whitening Essence and loving them both already! The samples that came with the purchase was the Neogen Green Tea Cleansing Stick, 3 sheet masks and 3 individual sample packets. All this for only $88…talk about a deal! 🤩
