I don’t follow Tati/GlamLifeGuru. Her content never appealed to me, but that is neither here nor there. The reality is that most beauty content creators are not qualified to dispense medical advice. I’ve talked about my use and discontinuation/reduction in use of Biotin before, but I make it abundantly clear that I am not a medical professional. I cannot educate you in health-related choices! So – all changes of the supplementary nature should be reviewed with a qualified medical professional even if your BFF or mom endorses the hell out of ’em.
The short of it is that Tati is branding and peddling vitamins under the guise of being a beauty brand. Tati is not a chemist, doctor, or nutritionist. Her husband, with whom one of her organizations is registered, is not either.
Several ingredients are contraindicated with common conditions and medicine regimens. And most people, unless they were knowledge- or at least Google-hungry wouldn’t know because they wouldn’t talk to their doctor, either. I, or she, or whomever, can tell you what I/she/they had luck with (or not), but it’s all anecdotal and, frankly, you don’t have the full picture and context of my/her/their health anyway.
A Wee Bit Shady
Her site, which I’m following Nikki’s suit and not linking, claims that the $40/mo product is, “Clinically Proven,” but offers no evidence that clinical trials took place. I searched for it and came up empty handed.
The charts on the site do not count as proof. Any jackass can make up and publish some charts. I had an old boss that did all.the.time; and he didn’t stand to reap any extra financial gain.
The Bottom Line
Just sayin’, Tati – cough up the evidence that trials were executed and people will probably calm down a bit. Like me, people are understandably skeptical.
That said – what on earth would make you think that someone who has made a living making videos on how to apply makeup is qualified to tell you what substances to put into your body?
