Hi I’m Tati from GlamLifeGuru, I’m glad you found my video, please be sure to check out my collection of videos on my YouTube beauty channel GlamLifeGuru where you’ll find my best beauty tips, tricks and favorites on everything from top luxury cosmetics to my favorite drugstore makeup. Whether you’re looking for a new product review, tutorial, beauty tip, haul or perhaps even a giveaway, I hope you enjoy watching.


  1. Accutane was great and I didn’t have any crazy side effects…guess everyone is different. Great if you get regular cystic acne or all over face ones.

  2. i’ve tried everything and nothing works, my last option is accutane and i’m starting it in a month. i absolutely love love love makeup and feel most confident in it, i’m so scared the dry skin will make my makeup look terrible. any tips from anybody? please.

  3. I just can’t image to use such a rotating brush because I have really dry skin and I think it would really hurt to use it twice a day….

  4. My acne isn’t cystic or mile-away drastic, but it has been permanently present waking up with multiple new spots for over a decade. I have seen 5 dermatologists, done all possible types of oral and topic antibiotics, take AMAZING care of my skin, don’t smoke, don’t eat fried food, even went vegan for a while… nada. I feel like accutane is my only option, but technically my acne isn’t ‘severe’ enough to be the typical case for it and I already have dry skin to begin with. On the other hand, if nothing else makes any difference, I would give anything to be confident leaving the house without makeup…

  5. you are absolutely by far the youtuber/beauty influencer that i feel i can trust the most. i love your your advice and just genuinely believe that any products you recommend are truly awesome products and not just products that ur recommending because the company is paying you to.. anytime i need advice on the best product for this or that i always go straight to tati!! lol thanks for all your honesty and thanks for saving me like a bagillion dollars on products that just dont work! your the best! love ya!

  6. Hey Tati!
    For years, I have had problems with my skin texture, clogged pores, dry skin and oily skin ect. Just really sensitive, stubborn skin
    After watching this, I became determined to really stick to a beauty routine. I invested in a Clarisonic Smart Profile and various brush heads, Shiseido Ibuki Gentle Cleanser and the SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel, and I have begun using tea tree oil diluted with lots of water, as a kind of toner. I tend to switch it up a bit with moisturisers, liquid lotions and serums, to find what works for me.
    But this week or so, after I got my Clarisonic, the Cleanser and the Gel, I have seen SUCH an improvement on my skin!
    Thank you so much!

  7. By the way, for those of you who struggle with acne DO NOT use the shiseido ibuki cleanser. It contains a high amount of myristic acid which is highly comedogenic and will clog pores like crazy.

  9. I love that you made this video, but I went through the same problem with using topicals and never getting results, but I have owned the Clarisonic for 3 years and never saw results:( I am going on accutane next month, so wish me luck!

  10. just rewatching this video, and just wanted to tell you how pretty you are in this video. You are always beautiful, but something about this video you just looked extra gorgeous to me. Happy Wednesday!

  11. I know this is an older video but one thing I definitely recommend is allergy testing. I know my acne was caused by allergies to some of the preservatives in products. (certain, not all)

  12. I want to save up for the smart profile but I also saw a smart profile lift, do you think that one would be better to get to help keep skin firm? Or do you think that could just be a hype situation and just stick to the regular one?

  13. I suffer from acne & I can’t take acutane due to my history of depression. My dermatologist told me people committed suicide on it 😢

  14. Tati you are awesome!! I’m so happy to see someone else who has taken accutane share there story! Much appreciated. Where did you get the necklace though?? I love it!!

  15. I love this video. I was on accutane 2 years ago, I just stepped in my 20s when my dermatologist prescribed to me. It was a hell of a miserable time. It sucked so bad. I could relate to so much of what Tati said. Wouldn’t recommend anyone to go on the cycle. Sucks big time. Love Tati and all her videos. Fave beauty guru ever ❤❤❤

  16. I ABDOLUTLEY enjoy your videos
    as shocking as it is I was watching your unboxing that you just uploaded today !! and I decided to look in other channels for an acutane story or tips not thinking that you of all people would have one … after watching a few Youtube revomended me this video and boy was I excited !! I could not calm myself down, I absolutly love your skin and I was trill to now that you used to take acutane …. You just gave me hope and Im soooo thankful for this video Tati !!! love you lots girl!!! 😍 by the way I would give anything to have your skin …. ok enough chit chat on to finishing the rest of the video jaja😂😊
