Last week in episode 144 we asked dermatologist Dr. Mamina Turegano to weigh in on all the non-invasive ways to treat dark circles, puffiness, under-eye bags and more. BUT we all know that there’s only so much an eye cream can do, and that’s why we invited Manhattan-based cosmetic surgeon Dr. Lara Devgan on the mic today to continue the conversation. She fills us in on everything there is to know about treating hooded eyelids, dark circles, puffiness, under-eye bags and more, including the #glowdown on costs/downtimes/potential risks when you go the surgical route. We learned so much (fox eye trend! fat transfers! plasma pens!), and know you will too.

Welcome to our milestone, 100th episode!! Can you believe?! Our baby girl’s a centenarian already. Today we’re harkening back to our origins with an epic #foundersrule tale, featuring a brand leading the future of beauty as we enter a new decade. Meet John and Laura Nelson, the siblings behind Seed Beauty, a beauty incubator that’s launched mad successes like ColourPop, Kylie Cosmetics, KKW Beauty, and most recently, Tati Beauty by mega influencer Tati Westbrook.

In today’s episode, we visit Seed Beauty’s HQ in Oxnard, California, to peep the direct-to-consumer brands capable of taking a single customer request from concept to creation in just five days!!! John and Laura reveal the answers to the question on everybody’s mind: how is it possible to deliver high quality products at such a low price, so fast? Case in point: Jill and Carlene’s fave Super Shock Shadows from ColourPop – gorgeous cream-to-powder pigments that sell for just $6 bucks.

In their first podcast ever, John and Laura trace the story behind how Seed Beauty came to be – pivoting the family business from one of the largest outside suppliers for global beauty brands to a vertically integrated platform launching its own brands. We get the juice on how a certain Kardashian family spun their warehouse into overdrive, and you’ll hear some hints on what this industry power player has cooking up next.

As always, drop us a line in our private Facebook chatroom or shoot us a DM on Instagram – we love hearing from you! Or call us and leave us a voicemail: 1-844-227-0303

Meet Skincare By Hyram – aka Hyram Yarbro – the 24-year-old “Skincare Specialist” whose viral videos are making ordinary brands like CeraVe sell out among his six million TikTok Stans. Starting with his popular skincare routine reaction videos launched earlier this year, his #skincarebyhyram hashtag has racked up 1.4 billion views on the platform in just six months. In today’s episode, Hyram discusses his lightning-fast rise to fame, including how he’s dealing with the success – and the mistakes he’s made along the way.

We ask Hyram about that licensing deal we’ve been hearing about (Could “Hyram-Approved” Skincare be hitting store shelves soon?) And, we got you with his product recommendations, too. Find out which budget skincare brand he says is poised to be the next big thing. You’ll also hear about his complete, 4-step skincare routine, including the serum for oily skin he’s calling “sorcery in a bottle.” Finally, we find out which skincare tool is totally not worth the spend, and the skincare trend he’s predicting will be big for 2020 and beyond. *Trigger warning*Please note that eating disorders are discussed in this episode

Do we really need an eye cream? In today’s episode, we set out to answer that very question, with triple-board certified dermatologist Dr. Mamina Turegano, who’s earned nearly half a million TikTok followers with her viral, edu-tainment skincare videos. Dr. Mamina walks us through the causes and treatments for dark circles, undereye puffiness and crow’s feet, including the eye creams that actually wield results, the single at-home gadget that’s worked on her, and the very latest in-office treatments.

Be sure to tune in next week, when we continue our all about eyes exploration with Manhattan-based plastic surgeon Dr. Lara Devgan, with the 101 on solutions that pick up where derm-treatments and eye creams simply can’t. Fox eyes, blepharoplasty and its alternatives, fat transfers – you’ll learn the costs, benefits, downtime and more in the second installment of this two-part special all about your most important, above-the-mask feature.

Meet pioneer of the at-home micro peel, Dr. Dennis Gross, along with his wife Carrie Gross, co-founder and CEO of the best-selling acids brand at Sephora. They flew us to their Manhattan HQ in New York City, to discover the origin story behind Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare, one of the first dermatologist brands to launch twenty years ago. Find out how the iconic Alpha Beta Universal Peel came to be, and why the DIY, daily acid peel system was a shocking idea – at a time when Sex And The City’s Samantha Jones was the poster child for aggressive pro treatments.

Stay tuned as Dr. Dennis Gross answers your most common acid peel questions, including tips on how to build this essential resurfacing step into your current skincare routine. Then, Dr. Dennis Gross – an expert in the field of melanoma – serves the real talk on the latest FDA findings, explaining why he’s advocating against chemical sunscreen filters. Plus, find out what he thinks is the biggest gimmick going in the beauty business today, along with the real deal skincare treatments that will define the next decade to come.

Today, we’re chatting all about how to build your perfect skincare routine with esthetician-to-the-stars, Renée Rouleau, who flew in all the way from Austin Texas just to be on our show!

In this noteworthy episode, Renée walks us through the exact steps to building a rock-solid skin routine for your skin type, plus she gets down to some skincare 101 like: Does serum go on before or after moisturizer? What the heck is an essence? And how often should you use retinol? Plus, find out why this skin expert thinks our favourite face cleansing balms really have to go (say whaaat?!) Learn anything new?

We’re on a bit of a summer holiday, but by popular demand we’re bumping this previously released chat to the top of your feeds. She's the Founder and CEO to watch, and she started a revolution with Glossier, a millennial beauty brand that's commanded line-ups around the block with its era-defining pink-and-white packaging and its inclusive, raw beauty campaigns. She's Emily Weiss, the New Yorker topping Vogue and Forbes' lists alike.

Find out why the other leading beauty brands are chasing Glossier's "v-commerce" business model (we didn't know what it was either!); learn the secrets behind Emily's editorial roots - including whose bathroom was the most epic for #TopShelf, her art for crowd-sourcing the brand's next innovations; and what she really remembers about those days interning at Vogue and making her debut on The Hills.

But most importantly, why is Glossier's Boy Brow the number one best-seller, exactly? We weigh in with our review of the most iconic product. Plus, don't miss Emily's personal beauty hacks—and what she wore to our interview. And finally, hear from the Glossier fan girls IRL, who we turn the mic over to in this revealing, femmes-first episode.
