Can a Perfume *Really* Repel Mosquitos?
39:32

Summer is not over yet (yay), which means the mosquitoes are still a problem (boo). If you’re not a fan of the traditional repellents, the internet is suggesting…Victoria’s Secret perfumes?! On today’s episode, we’re talking about the two VS scents that are allegedly protecting people from bites as good as DEET! We’re also covering some exciting new launches, Kirbie’s go-to powder, and Haus Labs’ latest sold-out lip product that feels super familiar.

The 3 Pillars of How the Face Ages With Dr. Amir Karam
1:09:19

Facial aging: what happens when we get older? Dr. Amir Karam, the San Diego-based double board-certified plastic surgeon, promotes the fact that aging is inevitable, but also, taking care of your skin is a crucial part of prevention. In today's episode, he explains how skin changes contribute to facial aging just as much as volume loss and laxity, what types of skincare products are pertinent to keeping your skin looking pristine, how filler (when it goes overboard) can cause scar tissue and ultimately stay in the skin, the impetus for creating Vertical Restore (his incredible facelift technique), what treatments he'd personally avoid as a plastic surgeon, and the point of differentiation with his own skincare line, KaramMD.

Is the 10-Step K-Beauty Routine Totally Made Up?
47:32

Welcome to Beauty Court. Today, we're playing listener voicemails regarding a question we posed at the end of episode 248: do founder stories influence you to buy a product? Alternatively, if a founder's beliefs don't agree with yours, if the product is good — do you care? This week we also celebrate National Liptick Day and there's major sales going down at Ulta Beauty. Twitter has been abuzz with the reveal that the 10-step K-Beauty routine may not be a thing Koreans *actually* do. So how did this "trend" get blown out of proportion? And finally, there's another celebrity beauty scandal: did Treslucé Beauty copy their brand identity from Araceli Beauty? Kirbie and Sara break down everything you need to know so you can decide for yourself.

The Benefits of Mandelic Acid For Acne With Tiara Willis (MakeupForWOC)
48:41

Tiara Willis is a 20-year-old licensed esthetician whose influence began on Twitter as @MakeupForWOC. Now, she's leading the conversation on the platform about important skincare topics and sharing her favorite products (and the ones she's not a fan of) with her engaged community. Tiara amplified the "two finger rule" tip for sunscreen application, changing how people think about and wear SPF, and made CeraVe a must-have for beauty fanatics. She's on the show to talk about her experience with acne — which is what encouraged her to attend esthetics school and learn about the skin — and how she helps others on their skincare journey. She'll explain why mandelic acid is *the* ingredient you should be using if you're experiencing acne, the brands she feels are the most effective for clearing up the skin, why laser hair removal might be a good option for acne, and will walk us through how she would treat a client coming to her for help.

Hailey Rhode Baldwin Bieber

Hailey Bieber’s skin is as good, if not better than it appears on Instagram and TikTok. Believe (or should we say Beliebe) us — we had the chance to hang out with the newly-minted beauty entrepreneur at Rhode HQ to talk about the launch of her skincare line. But that wasn’t all we talked about either. In addition to learning why she wanted to create her own brand, Hailey also shared the treatments she gets to maintain her glazed donut skin, the relatable origin story behind pizza toast, and how she handles social media celebrity. Kirbie and Sara have also been testing the Rhode products since March and share their honest thoughts.

57:23

The microbiome. Probiotics. Holistic. You’ve surely heard all of these words when it comes to your skin, but what do they really mean beyond just marketing terms? On today’s episode, we’re speaking with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe about what we’re missing when it comes to our regimens, the importance of inner and outer skincare synergy, and why probiotic skincare is basically a lie.

It's a solo episode! Resident self-tanning fiend and former professional airbrush artist Kirbie is breaking down everything you need to know to self-tan confidently, no matter your comfort level or skin tone.

The talented actress is on the podcast today sharing her journey from moving to LA at 14 and living among fellow kid actors (and also being in a girl group with the Haim sisters!) to starring in major movies and shows like Toy Story and HBO Max’s Hacks.

We’re also talking about what beauty products she loves to use to keep her skin camera-ready and quite possibly the most impressive thing about her which involves knowing a certain boy bander Kirbie and Sara are obsessed with.

There's a New Dyson Airwrap Coming This Summer
35:16

We're kicking off this week breaking down a major beauty brand drama involving our very own Sara Tan. (Purchase the Nails of LA x Sara Tan collab here!) Sara then waxes poetic about a Megababe product that totally transformed her pits. In major headlines, The CROWN Act finally passed — which got us singing the praises of Sesame Street (stay with us, there's a great connection there, we promise). Dyson announced a new Airwrap will be launching this summer and Kirbie has details on why the new version is even more spectacular AND is compatable with the first gen. And sadly our friends at Jergens have implemented a voluntary recall for their Ultra Healing products (click the link to check the lot codes being recalled).

How to Effectively Launch a Celebrity Beauty Brand (IOHO)
48:04

Celebrity beauty brands are the new "clean." They aren't going anywhere, so why not discuss the best path for success? We realize we may not have many celebrity beauty brand founders as listeners, but we're pulling back the curtain on what happens during brand launches and why we may not always be on a brand's "good side." But first: Kirbie is raving about a new self-tanning face moisturizer that leaves her skin sunkissed and melasma less prominent, a popular influencer brand is shutting its doors forever in April, Pat McGrath is a real DOLL, and, of course, three celebrity brands launched in Sephora last week. We break it all down in today's news ep!

What is Inflammation-Induced Aging and How Do We Stop It? With Heraux's Ben Van Handel
51:14

Chronic, low-grade inflammation has been linked to accelerating the aging process. Ben Van Handel had dedicated the past 10 years of his life learning about this process, also known as "inflammaging," and discovered a molecule that is clinically proven to not only stop inflammaging but protect skin as well. His product, Heraux Molecular Anti-Inflammaging Serum is one of our favorites on the pod, so we brought Ben on to discuss what causes the process, how Heraux works, advancements he's currently working on, and what outside factors contribute to inflammaging overall. Plus, Heraux is offering 25% off their serum to Glamgelenos! Use code GLOSSANGELES on HerauxSkin.com to get your discount 11/12-11/19.

Who reigns supreme in the land of beauty? When it comes to celebrities, these top 10 (er, top 9 if we’re being honest) are at the top of their game. Sara quizzes Kirbie in this week’s rendition of Data Girl on those power rankings. Kirbie shares her recent story for Allure about biotin — how it’s probably not growing your hair out, it could be affecting your bloodwork, and might even be contributing to your breakouts.

It’s time for another Gloss Angeles Rewind and this week, we’re playing another HIT! We’ve heard from many Glamgelenos that this is one of their favorite episodes and we can’t blame them.

If you haven’t listened to this episode yet, we highly encourage you to tune in. You’ll learn how many hours you should really be sleeping, what kind of sleep animal you are (and what it means), whether beauty sleep is real or a myth, how CBD and melatonin work (or don't) and more.

Plus, she's introducing two new products to the NuFACE lineup: new activators that double as skincare. Don't take our word for it though: enter to win a NuFACE Trinity set with all attachments and both activators for you AND a friend over on our Instagram!

The History of SPF Regulation and How Sunscreen Works

We talk about sunscreen nonstop on the pod, but how does it actually work? What's the best way to reapply over makeup? How is it regulated? Is SPF 50 really better than SPF 30?

Our Exclusive Interview! Hyram Yarbro on His New Brand, How Many Sponsorship Offers He Gets in a Week and His Goals For Giving Back
50:38

Hyram Yarbro was born and raised on a cattle ranch in Arizona to a Mormon Family, not paying much attention to skincare. After moving to Hawaii, getting a sunburn (how times have changed!) and needing a product to help conceal the redness, he ventured into a Sephora and learned quickly the power of cosmetics. Fast forward to 2017, Hyram launched his Youtube channel, advocating for his audience to learn more about the ingredients in their skincare.


In 2020, Hyram was the #1 skinfluencer on Youtube and TikTok, filming 5-6 videos a week along with creating content for TikTok and Instagram. After reviewing a variety of brands, he was determined to create his own. He was about to order all the components to create his own products when he took a meeting with Mark and Colette of The Inkey List. It was then that Selfless by Hyram was born.

We spoke with Hyram about a variety of things, from how his religion growing up impacted his work ethic, his mental health as a content creator, how many brands reach out to him (per week!) to work with him, the causes his brand directly gives back to, and of course had to ask him about his ingredient preferences. Selfless by Hyram is available at Sephora now!

We're thrilled to partner with Aesthetics Biomedical on this episode, the company behind Vivace RF Microneedling.

We lay out who it's best for, what exactly it does and doesn't treat, what to expect during a treatment, how to find a provider and more.

Prince's Posthumous Urban Decay Collaboration + Jessica Alba's $130M Payday in Beauty Headlines
41:49

It's Wednesday (sorry we're a day late!) and we have a lot of celebrity beauty headlines to cover. First up, the Prince Estate has collaborated with Urban Decay on an upcoming collection. Kirbie and Sara share their thoughts (and the missed product opportunities –– When Doves Cry-liner, anyone?). Sara tries to hide her jealousy of Lori Harvey (and fails), who is not only launching a skincare brand, but is testing it on BF Michael "Bae" Jordan. Lil Yachty has us excited about his upcoming nail paint launch, Crete, and we have ideas on how the applicator may be a point of differentiation for the brand. In Instagram drama, people can't stop talking about a Beauty Blender video (let alone the brand's response to the discourse). And we wrap things up with some industry news: Beirsdorf is refuting claims that artificial blue light affects the skin, while Jessica Alba is getting that money, Honey, as Honest Company goes public. Plus, Sara's sweet pout is shouting out a new Chanel gloss-balm hybrid for WOYF that's perfect for getting back into public.

Do you think about Britney Spears? Like, in general? It’s no secret Kirbie does — A LOT.

If The Ordinary and La Mer are Owned By The Same Company, What Does That Mean When It Comes to Formulas?
46:01

The business of beauty is a big one, but when it comes down to it, there are eight mega companies that have a hold on the cosmetic market and own a huge number of our favorite makeup, hair, and skincare brands. On today’s episode, we break down which brands are sisters and what parent conglomerates own them, from L’Oreal to LVMH. You might be surprised to learn that your favorite drugstore lipstick is made by the same company that formulates your go-to luxury moisturizer. That said, just because a company owns different brands doesn't mean they swap trade secrets, or even that their formulas change. Learn about what companies own what brands, which incubators are on the rise, and get your top acquisition questions answered.

From Euphoria Makeup to Applying Pubic Hair, Donni Davy Pulls Back the Curtain on Set Life For a Makeup Artist
50:07

You don’t need to be a fan of the show ‘Euphoria’ to understand the impact Donni Davy’s makeup artistry has had on the industry, let alone pop culture. Those rhinestone-studded cat eyes or glitter tears that’s been crowding your IG feed? It’s all thanks to Donni’s influence. And while we’re obsessed with the bold and unapologetic makeup movement she helped start, there is so much more to Donni’s work than meets the eye (no pun intended). On today’s episode, we sit down (virtually, of course) with the Emmy award-winning makeup artist to hear how she got her start on Craigslist, what it’s like to be a makeup department head, and how she develops the looks for her characters, both for TV and film. She also shares the one product that is always in her kit (surprise, it’s affordable!) and discusses her new face decal collaboration with Face Lace. Makeup lovers, aspiring MUAs, and ‘Euphoria’ fans do not want to miss this episode!

Droplette: Meet the Founders Behind the NASA-Backed Skincare Device + All Your Questions, Answered
38:40

A few weeks back, we raved about the one and only Droplette: a misting device that uses technology to deliver ingredients not on top of the skin, but into the skin. Looking for a solution for a medical disorder, founders Madhavi Gavini and Rathi Srinivas saw the value Droplette offered the skincare industry, and thus a device was born. We had so many questions about the product itself after featuring it on What's on Your Face that we figured the best people to answer your questions would be the founders themselves! If you're considering getting a Droplette, listen to this ep first to learn the science behind it, how it works, the proper way to use it, and what ingredients they have to offer.

She was rejected and criticized, but that didn’t stop her. Years later, The Lip Bar would become one of Target’s best-selling makeup brands, garnering a huge fan base which included the likes of Michelle Obama (more on that in the episode!). Now, Melissa is partnering with Walmart to make her incredible beauty products even more accessible to everyone. In our interview, Melissa shares how she got into Target (it involves a blind email), the sacrifices she had to make to grow the brand, and why she’s so excited about working with a corporate retail giant, despite its bad rep. Plus, Melissa shares a Gloss Angeles exclusive having to do with her organization The BLK PACT — you don’t want to miss it.

1:01:09

When it comes to celebrity estheticians in Hollywood, Kate Somerville is the OG. Kirbie and Sara have been longtime fans of Kate and her products, as well as her famous clinic on Melrose Place. But there’s a lot more to know about Kate than the famous faces she’s worked on or the skincare she’s made. In our interview with the legend herself, Kate shares stories about growing up in a barn, her battle with eczema, and how she transformed Janet Gaynor's (the first woman to win an Academy Award) old home into a beauty institution. We also picked her brain about the future of aesthetics, why peptides are so necessary, and the latest addition to her skincare range, KateCeuticals.

In honor of Valentine's Day — or Galentine's Day as we like to call it over here at Gloss Angeles — we have Matthew Herman, co-founder of Boy Smells, on the pod to discuss all things candles, fragrance, and emotions (specifically the ones that certain scents can evoke).

They even have a collab with the one and only Kacey Musgraves (you've heard Kirbie talk about their "Slow Burn" candle on the pod, no doubt). In this episode, Matthew shares how they transitioned from fashion to candles, what the process is like when creating different scents, and the upcoming launch of the brand's new "cologne de parfums," launching March 2nd.

The 23-Year-Old Founders of Topicals on the Link Between Chronic Skin Conditions and Your Mental Health
53:18
Olamide Olowe and Claudia Teng are not your typical beauty brand founders. They’re young (Gen Z, represent), they’re women of color, and they are encouraging their customers to embrace their chronic skin conditions. While Topicals’ products are made with scientifically-proven ingredients aimed to help issues like eczema, rosacea, and acne, they aren’t meant to “fix” your skin. Olamide and Claudia want their fans to know that flare-ups can be fun or at the very least, not the end of the world. That said, their hero products — Faded, a brightening gel and Like Butter, a hydrating mask — are amazing. We are both huge fans and we are not alone — the brand launched in August and has already amassed a large, loyal following. During our conversation, Olamide and Claudia share how they came to launch Topicals, what they think the beauty industry gets wrong about chronic skin conditions, and why mental health is such an important part of their brand.

Is the Manicure Dead? (Spoiler Alert: It's Not. Here's Why.)

Big news today: SARA'S BACK! Our resident Hot Mom is making her grand return to Gloss Angeles and we have a ton of a ground to cover. First of all, we've all been thirsty for newscasters. Does anyone have Chris Cuomo's information? (We kid... kind of.) Kirbie bought some goodies at the Sephora sale including a fragrance everyone needs to get this winter because it's like capturing the scent of a burning match... but in a good way. It was hard to see past all the Election coverage, but one New York Times article managed to cause a huge fuss: Is This the End of the Manicure? pissed off a bunch of people and Kirbie has some thoughts. Then we talk about a ton products we're loving right now, like a tinted moisturizer that's got everyone raving, a hyperpigmentation gel that smells odd but works like a charm, a tattoo artist's venture into the beauty realm, a baby lotion that Sara's been using on herself, and an app that's helped take down Kirbie's stress levels.

Hocus Pocus Behind-the-Scenes Stories With SFX Makeup Artist Tony Gardner
52:20

Today is our Halloween episode! Halloween and Hocus Pocus are synonymous with each other, and if you grew up watching the 1993 classic, chances are it has a special place in your heart. Hocus Pocus is one of Kirbie's top 5 favorite films, and today's guest is the creator of Billy Butcherson's incredible special effects makeup and the animatronic puppet, Binx the cat.


Special effects makeup artist and puppeteer Tony Gardner's story is truly what movies are made of. He’s known for his SFX makeup work in film, tv and music videos, including Zombieland, Bad Grandpa, 127 Hours, Hairspray and Sasha Baron Cohen’s ‘Who is America.’ He’s transformed stars like John Travolta, Gwyneth Paltrow and Katy Perry and is the man responsible for Daft Punk’s incredible helmets. Today he joins us because of his work on some fabulous Halloween films, from The Addams Family to The Blob, The Craft to the Chucky series, and of course, Hocus Pocus. 


Today he shares his first experience on set (which is nothing short of iconic), talks about getting a job offer from legendary SFX makeup artist Rick Baker, dropping out of school to follow his dreams, debunking some myths about the movie, the makeup and filming process for Binx and Billy, and even offers a preview of what we can expect from Hulaween, the mini Hocus Pocus reunion Bette Midler is putting on tonight for the New York Restoration Project. 


All details on Tony, his company Alterian and Hulaween will be available on our website for you to check out, and be sure to head to our Instagram to see some behind the scenes pics too! Enjoy the full moon this weekend, stay safe, and Happy Halloween!

In headlines, two new beauty brands are on the horizon: Jason Wu will launch his eponymous brand in Target come January 2021 and Bobbi Brown (yes, THE Bobbi Brown) has come out of cosmetics retirement to launch a new DTC brand Jones Road Beauty. Then Emma breaks down a few products that you'll surely be *gunning* for (sorry) at the end of her review.

Chloe joins Kirbie to discuss what it was like working with Tracee Ellis Ross on Elle's State of Black Beauty package, interviewing Cardi B., and writing her most recent story about Jessica Florence — a woman who had stage 3 breast cancer but experienced medical racism.

Is the Beauty Industry a Cult? Linguistically, Maybe. Featuring Author and Linguist Amanda Montell
1:04:20

Amanda Montell is a writer, linguist, and author of the critically acclaimed book Wordslut: A Feminist Guide to Taking Back the English Language, which has earned praise from readers and critics alike, including publications like The New York Times, Time Magazine, and Harper's Bazaar. Amanda is currently developing Wordslut for television with FX, while working on her second book, Cultish—about the language of cults from Scientology to SoulCycle—slated for publication in June 2021 (which she gave us a sneak peek on). Amanda's other writing has been featured in Marie Claire, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Nylon, Byrdie, and Who What Wear, where she formerly served as the Features & Beauty Editor. We marked this episode as explicit because of the converation, which is respectful but may be considered explicit to some.


On this episode, Amanda dives deep into the somewhat problematic language we use in the beauty industry, advice for how we can redefine the way we talk about ourselves and our bodies, and why it's actually really progressive of us to say like so freaking much.

Sharon Chuter, UOMA'S Beauty's Founder, is Making Brands #PullUporShutUp
56:07

Sharon Chuter's story is incredible. We have her on the show because of the work she's doing with the Pull Up or Shut Up initiative — a movement she created — where brands are being asked to disclose not only how many black employees they have, but how many are in leadership positions.

1:00:21

You asked for this one: in our glorious Facebook group, you wanted to know how products are picked to be sold at certain retailers and what the future of beauty shopping will look like. We instantly thought of one of our favorite e-tailers, Dermstore, who has been a leader in the skincare space and online beauty shopping since it was created in 1999 by a dermatologist. 14 years later, they were acquired by Target and have quickly built a curated assortment of the finest brands in beauty. President Cyndi Isgrig joins us today to discuss what differentiates as brand you find at Dermstore vs. other retailers, how shopping for your favorite products will change over the next year and what product she thinks we'll see more of in 2020. Plus, a distasteful launch that's ruffled our feathers and a shoutout to a special listener!

CBD is easily one of the most pitched products in our inboxes. We sometimes feel so overwhelmed with CBD brands and products that it can be easy for us to want to move on to the next big trend. The fact is, however, that most people are just discovering this "gorgeous molecule" (as Casey Georgeson of Saint Jane puts it). We invited Meredith Schroeder, co-founder Fleur Marché — an e-comm site decidated to wellness-focused cannabis products and tauted as the "Sephora of CBD" — on the pod to break everything down: what are the real benefits of CBD, what claims can be made, how do you find the perfect CBD product, can it get you high, and what's next when it comes to CBD?

Our CVS Skin Care Haul: Drugstore Products For $30 or Less
1:13:05

It’s no secret we love prestige brands, like a fancy serum or decadent créme, but we also believe good skin care doesn’t mean spending hundreds of dollars. Our personal philosophy is you should only buy what you need. If something is working for you, keep doing it! You don’t need every product you see posted about on instagram, websites, and yes, even Gloss Angeles. But if you are shopping to update your regimen, you don't need to dole out a ton of cash to get an efficacious product. We reached out to our friends at CVS about doing a drugstore-themed episode and they graciously gave us gift cards to curate our own skin care regimen at the store. (Please note we went to the store long before social distancing was put into play.)

Australian Beauty Advice With Go-To Skin Care Founder (and Former Beauty Editor) Zoë Foster Blake
57:49

It's a beauty editor kiki! Zoë Foster Blake is one of Australia’s most celebrated beauty experts. But before she became a beauty brand founder, she was just like us — a beauty editor! Zoe was the beauty director of Cosmopolitan and Harper’s BAZAAR Australia. She then went on to write a few books, including Amazing Face, a best-selling beauty bible, and then decided to start her own beauty blog back in 2006. After years of reviewing and using every kind of skin care product on the face of the earth, Zoë decided to take a stab at creating her own. She wanted to make something that was simple, stress-free, and more about self-love than “fixing” stuff. Thus Go-To Skin Care was born. 

Go-To focus on clean formulas and has a cheeky brand voice. With the success of her brand, Zoë launched Gro-To Skin Care, a clean line for kids. It's super cute, trust us. Listen to learn how Zoë editorial expertise equipped her to become a standout brand founder.

Creating a Clean Beauty Brand With Ilia Founder Sasha Plavsic
22:36

Sasha Plavsic is the founder of ILIA Beauty, a prestige line of natural and organic beauty products that combine superior color performance and nourishing organics based in Laguna Beach. Before Sasha started the company, she had years of branding experience helping beauty and wellness companies, including Urban Decay and Saje Natural Wellness. So when she discovered that there wasn’t any existing clean beauty products that were not packaged in bamboo, she found herself with a goal in mind (and the experience to back it up): create a tinted lip balm that was luxurious and didn’t contain any nasty ingredients. Fast forward to today and ILIA is one of the leading clean color cosmetics brands out on the market. We’re talking to Sasha about starting her brand as well as Ilia’s latest launch: the Super Serum Skin Tint.

You'd be hard pressed to find a beauty lover that hasn't tried a Korean beauty product or trend.

The brains behind the operation — and the skincare brand Then I Met Youis Charlotte Cho.

Charlotte is an esthetician and author, and today she's talking about what it was like launching Soko Glam 7 years ago, the feeling/term "Jeong" and how she applies it to her skin care routine, what white labeling is, plus what trends she believes we'll see popping up in 2020.

Is Blue Light Skin Damage a Myth? Talking About Visible Light's Effect on the Skin With Dr. Loretta
54:57

You might know Dr. Loretta Ciraldo, MD, FAAD, as the creator of the cult-favorite Tightening Eye Gel, which won Allure’s Best of Beauty Awards this year. She is a highly sought-after board-certified dermatologist with over 40 years of experience, an avid clinical researcher, published author, and a regular on-camera expert.

Her research experience started in 1975 in the Dermatology Department of Harvard Medical School, where she performed early testing on the effects of UVA on human skin and contributed to the development of the Fitzpatrick Skin Type Classification — so she knows a lot about sun exposure. She received her MD from Downstate Medical College of State University of New York and completed her dermatology residency at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, NY, where she was selected as Chief Resident.

Dr. Loretta is line of anti-aging skincare products, formulated with high concentrations of advanced medical-grade actives, combined with blends of the most beneficial essential oils and botanical and marine ingredients to ensure that skin remains unexposed to harmful external influences. In today's episode, we're discussing how blue light may be contributing to your skin in a negative way, which is why sunscreen is essential every single day — even indoors.

How Tatcha's Vicky Tsai Healed Her Dermatitis With Japanese Skin Care
35:15

Vicky Tsai, founder and “Chief Treasure Hunter” of Tatcha, one of the most beloved skin care brands of the last decade and one of our favorites here at Gloss Angeles. After graduating from business school and working for large corporations, Vicky spent years traveling back and forth from the states to Asia. She developed acute dermatitis and tried everything to treat her skin. During her time in Japan, Vicky discovered the world of Japanese beauty, thanks to an encounter with a modern-day geisha. She loved how pure, simple, and effective the classical Japanese beauty philosophy was and decided she wanted to share the secrets and ingredients she learned about with the rest of the world. Today, Tatcha works with scientists in both Japan and the U.S. to create formulations from scratch that honor traditional Japanese beauty practices, but are made with advanced technology and innovation.

Vicky also discusses Tatcha's new Serum Stick and what makes this new launch so special.

The Best Treatments For Acne, Fine Lines, and Dark Circles According to Celebrity Esthetician Georgia Louise
49:36

Georgia Louise is one of the world’s most sought after facialists, with clients like Jennifer Anistion, Emma Stone, Emily Blunt and Linda Evangelista. She received professional training in France, Switzerland and the UK, and established her practice in London in 2006. Her famously acclaimed Atelier was launched in Manhattan's Upper East Side in 2012, offering high end non-invasive facials, rated as the best facials in NYC.

Her facial treatments are designed to naturally and instantly lift cheekbones and brows, depuff and brighten the face and soften fine lines and wrinkles without the need of botox or fillers — her face massage is orgasmic to put it bluntly. She now has a location at the Allbright in West Hollywood, where we recorded today's ep! 

Georgia's transparent approach made for a great interview: she breaks down exactly what celebrities do to get pristine red carpet skin (and it's not just "drinking a lot of water,"), how often you should be getting facial treatments to see results, plus what treatments work the best for acne, fine lines, dark circles and jowls.

Fenty Beauty's Priscilla Ono on the Way Rihanna Does Her Makeup + The Right Way to Apply Contour and Highlight
33:09

We want to acknowledge the echo you’re going to hear in today’s ep — it’s because we are on location at Priscilla Ono’s gorgeous penthouse! Priscilla is the Global Makeup Artist for Fenty Beauty and is also responsible for creating some of Rihanna’s most memorable looks, from music videos to the red carpet. She was chosen out of hundreds of artists to join the Fenty Beauty Global Artistry Team in 2017. Priscilla talks to us about the looks she had to create on Rihanna to get the job, the most underrated Fenty product and how to properly apply highlighter and contour. Oh yeah, and of course we have a fabulous Fenty giveaway for you this holiday season!

Thanks for listening to our holiday episodes! We go back to Tuesday-only episodes beginning 12/31. We’ll be on vacation all next week. Happy holidays!

Continuing skin week, today we're talking about the best way to pop a pimple at home and the most common skin care issue Shani Darden encounters when treating her clients. Shani is a renowned esthetician and the secret behind some of Hollywood’s most flawless faces, including Jessica Alba, Chrissy Teigen, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Her passion for simple, yet effective and no bullshit solutions have garnered her a loyal client base and a massive social media following, so much so that Shani is often booked out a year in advance.

The Power of Great Sleep: Change Your Routine, Change Your Life (Featuring The Sleep Doctor)
51:12

Is beauty sleep real? How long should you really be sleeping? Plus a warning about melatonin. We're answering all of your most-asked sleep questions today on the show with The Sleep Doctor himself. Dr. Michael Breus is a Clinical Psychologist, a Diplomate of the American Board of Sleep Medicine, and a Fellow of The American Academy of Sleep Medicine. He specializes in sleep disorders and is one of the only psychologists in the world with his credentials and distinction. Dr. Breus has authored a number of books, tours the world lecturing on sleep, has appeared on CNN, Oprah, and The View, and is also on the clinical advisory board of The Dr. Oz Show. Dr. Breus has a private practice in LA where he helps his clients figure out how to sleep better, which is his main mission in life. We met Dr. Breus at an event for the launch of Mighty Night, a new supplement from HUM Nutrition that encourages more restful sleep and promotes healthier-looking skin. The event was the most engaged we'd ever seen an audience; he had a line out the door after his presentation. Clearly, getting good sleep is something people desperately want to know more about. We wanted him on the show to bring this information to you. Learn more about your Sleep Chronotype at ChronoQuiz.com. (For the record, Kirbie is a bear 🐻and Sara is a dolphin 🐬. Go figure.)
