BeautyTap has gone thru some changes recently that I do not think a lot of people know about.  They have opened up warehouses in the USA, so that they can do 3-5 day free shipping within the US called BeautyTapASAP and they also opened up a flagship store in South Coast Plaza, Irvine, California.  If you are in that area, you should check out for me and send me a photo or two at my IG account @colebiancardi!   Another huge change is their International/Global Shop ~ I think this is a bad move on their end and hopefully, they will adjust it accordingly.  I am having shades of what happened to Memebox and look where they are now 😦 The free shipping threshold was changed from $60.00 USD to $70.00 USD.  That in itself is fine, but the shipping costs have doubled from $12.50 to $25.00 if you do not meet the $70.00 threshold.  You only have one option and that is DHL shipping ~ so I know why my affiliate links were not used that much in November and December.  I think that if you wish to shop at their Global shop, which has so many more options, I would recommend saving up to get to the $70.00 minimum, do a group haul with your friends AND use my affiliate promo code of UNBOXING15, so you can save 15% on their items.

So without further ado, I am going to tell you what I would personally purchase at BeautyTapASAP and what I would save up to shop at their Global Store.  These are products I have tried in the past OR I am lusting after them myself.  Descriptions of products are from BeautyTap.


BeautyTapASAP has been expanding their line-up in their USA options, so there are a lot more products now!  Currently, they are having a HUGE WHOOOO … that is The History of Whoo (click here) special that is running until 12/16/2018.  Use promo code WHOOLOVE to get 30% off!


Need a quick gift for friends and family?  BeautyTapASAP has limited edition Beauty Kits, ranging anywhere from $25.00 to $90.00 (click here


RootTree is a brand new brand at BeautyTap ~ I am currently trying out a couple of their products ~ Cryptherapy Revital Toner and Cryptherapy Recovery Essence  ~ so far, I am liking them a LOT! “Rootree Cryptherapy line contains concentrated natural ingredients, which absorbs softly and smoothly through the skin. Jeju Cryptomeria which has pure water and fresh air that helps with natural anti-inflammation material(phytoncide). It improves skin’s immunity, delivers plentiful nutrients and gives moisture. Great for sensitive skin type including atopic skin. Helps Protect skin from external harmful conditions. Also provides moisture and nutrition to the skin, to help prevent the skin drying all while making it smooth and bright.”

Dr Frog is a fun brand and I have tried and liked their DR. FROG Ultra Real Lifting Toner: “A slightly acidic toner that removes dead skin cells, provides moisture, and keeps skin firm and bright. Contains hyaluronic acid that helps maintain the skin balance. Protects your skin against harmful pollution from the environment.”

KOELCIA is a new brand to me and I am dying to try their  Lime Coke Cleansing Oil + Peeling Gel set.  I read that it DOES smell like lime cola too!   “Lime Coke Cleansing Oil: Seltzer components contained is the key to remove wastes in our skin while providing abundant minerals and moistures to tired skin. Vitamin C in Lime helps our skin to protect from external irritation and makes the skin look lively and vibrant. Lime Coke Peeling Gel: This brilliant peeling gel with lime and carbonated water removes dead skin cells and impurities. You can feel cleaner, smoother and refreshful out of using this gel and it remarkably reduces skin pore size. This peeling gel contains cellulose particles and vitamin c from limes which efficiently exfoliate dry flaky skin and eliminates oil in skin pores. Carbonated water components cleanse the skin and relieve rashes, which makes you feel the tightness of the pores.”

Wanna a different  peeling gel?  props to * Secret Key Lemon Sparkling Set  This also comes with a foam cleanser too.  “The next step in your skin detox journey is the Secret Key Lemon Sparkling Peeling Gel. Refreshing carbonated water and lemon remove impurities and exfoliate for bright, healthy looking skin. Centella asiatica, witch hazel, and Portulaca oleracea extracts help soothe skin, while collagen, hyaluronic acid, and aloe vera keep skin moisturized and healthy.”  More from Secret Key, a Snail Repairing Set (I love the eye cream ~ it is a nice inexpensive moisturizing cream)

Gotta give a shout to to Sulwhasoo Sulwhasoo Essential Balancing Water EX:  One of the more affordable skin care products from Sulwhasoo and it is a fan favorite! “It’s exactly what your skin needs for immediate hydration and complete restoration. Sulwhasoo Essential Balancing Water EX is unlike your typical toner; it has an elegant gel texture that spreads evenly over your skin, leaving it soft and moisturized. “

Mediheal x BTS Mask Sheet Special Set Hydrating Moisture Care 

Laneige lip products are very excellent and they have come out with several flavors to their Lip Sleeping Mask (lime, berry, grapefruit and vanilla) “Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask gently melts away dead skin cells as you sleep, so you wake up to soft, smooth lips the next morning. A vitamin-C-rich Berry Mix Complex™ of goji berry, strawberry, raspberry, cranberry, and blueberry exfoliates old skin cells from dry, rough lips. MOISTURE WRAP™, Laneige’s patented technology, creates a moisturizing blanket over lips to seal in moisture”

Laneige came out with a Lip Glowy Balm, which I also want to try ~ comes in 4 flavors (pear, berry, peach & grapefruit ) “A daily use lip treatment that not only infuses your lips with moisture from murumuru and shea butters but leaves your lips feeling “breathable.” Perfect and intended for use under your favorite lip color, this lip treatment adds a bit of shine without leaving behind a thick, sticky layer”

SanDaWah is another brand I highly recommend ~ their * Liposome Skin Softener and * Multi Action Intensive Essence are excellent!  I also think this is really nice too ~  Camellia Flower Hydrating Mis

* 23 Years Old Aqua Bab Modeling Mask ~ just get it.  It is the bomb.   So is this * 23 Years Old Cocoon Willow Silky Mask.  

Klairs is a brand that I adore and have reviewed many of their products here at my blog ~ look for the * in the front of the product name and search my blog for the review! 

Okay, let’s face it, cosRX is the real winner here at BeautyTapASAP.  They have a huge lineup there and these are the ones I recommend (ones with a * in front of the name means you can find a review here at my blog)

Global Store

The Global store has its issues with the free shipping threshold, but it is REALLY easy to get to $70.00, folks.  It has a much larger selection that BeautyTapASAP and brands you can only get at the Global Shop. My promo code of UNBOXING15 also works here in the global store.

La Muse Return 2 Visual Balm  Messy as AF but I recommend HIGHLY if you can pull this shade off – it is a skin brightener and I use it under my foundation.  I have oily skin and it is not greasy at all “Well known as celebrity cream in Korea, La Muse Return 2 Visual Balm is THE cream to finish your look. They mixed intense moisturizer and soothing BB cream to make it absorved even softer when it comes to layering. It never cakes up, but only adds glow on your skin just like you’re wearing beauty filter on. Mainly containing naturally derived 55 different peptides, it definitely does more than just a natural coverage. Thick balm type cream leaves zero stickiness, leaving  long-lasting deep hydration”

MutoFace makes some GREAT products:  I have reviewed all of these here:  SOOTERA Beta Peel (BHA peel liquid) and you need the SOOTERA Neutralizer to go with it.  I adore this product most of all: Advance Skin Deep Cleaner and this is a lovely hydrating ampoule: Hydrop Control Ampoule

Okay, you gotta get the new cosRX.  Heck, some I DON’T EVEN HAVE yet, but want SO bad.  If I have reviewed the product, there will be an * in front the product name ~ and you can search in my side bar navigation to find the review.   

cosRX also is sold on the global side too

We also have the Laneige lip products in the global shop:  Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, Lip Glowy Balm, and a Tin Tint Balm “If you love your Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask and wish you can take it everywhere with you, well now you can with the Laneige Tin Tint Balm, which has the same ingredients and moisturizing properties but with a pop of color.”

SanDaWah has more options in their global shop 

The Global Shop also has a HUGE selection of Purito products, many of which I have reviewed here.  Check out their selection here and then see if I have reviewed them!  

SeaNTree has some great products ~ my favorite is the Green Tea Deep Deep Deep cream trio set and I know Jude at @fiddysnails loves this Donkey Milk Waterising Toner

Swanicoco has lovely products as well ~ a huge selection.  Just like Purito, check out their offerings here and then look if I have reviewed it.  My favs are the Neofinetia Falcata Callus Pure AmpouleGold Plant Stem Pure Ampoule Oriental Herbs Scrub Powder,  * The Bio Theraphy 1st Essence

The Global Shop also has a larger selection of Klairs, Sulwhasoo and The History of Whoo as well.
