About Gothamista

Gotham City-based beauty influencer, blogger and “professional treasure hunter” Renée Chow is hunting down and sampling the best in skincare and makeup “so you don’t have to.” Motivated by problematic skin in her teens, the “skinthusiast” turned to YouTube to vlog her product quests in hopes of helping others through her samplings and reviews. Renee quickly became a top skincare star, amassing 400K+ YouTube subscribers and 125K+ Instagram followers. Renee’s Asian influences and passion for Korean beauty products have brought K-beauty into the mainstream, inspiring trustworthy, finely curated and accessible companies to a new clientele.
