    Ep 40: A Dentist's Guide To Teeth Whitening

    Ep 40: A Dentist's Guide To Teeth Whitening

    We're back for another episode of Beauty IQ Uncensored, brought to you by Adore Beauty. 

    What’s on this episode? We’re glad you asked...

    Ear Infections

    Did you know there's such a thing as airplane ear? Neither did we! Jo and Hannah share their worst travel ear infection stories. Hannah continues to manifest her dream of moving to Thailand and Jo shares an awkward travel story involving an ex-boyfriend.

    If you suspect you have an ear infection we don't recommend DM'ing Jo on Instagram, please head to your local GP ;) 

    Teeth Whitening 

    Dentist Madeleine Duff joins us to discuss all things teeth whitening, and we learnt a new dentistry term: "Zingers". We also learnt that even dentists drink red wine through a straw.

    Hannah, of course, orders her whitening syringes on Amazon, but you can get yours from your local dentist. 

    You can follow Madeleine on Instagram or in person at Toorak Fine Dentistry.

    Products we didn't know we needed:

    BONUS: Caroline Hirons On Her Ride Or Die Skincare Ingredients

    MAJOR BUCKET LIST MOMENT!

    UK-based skincare expert/the Oprah of skincare, Caroline Hirons joins us to chat about why face wipes should only be for fannies, flights and festivals, her favourite skincare ingredients, the products she'd take to a deserted island (shock horror, she doesn't choose SPF!), and the things her daughter Ava steals from her beauty stash.

    Caroline's new book, Skin Care: The Ultimate No-Nonsense Guide is available via Harper Collins, and in Jo's opinion, is an excellent resource for skincare education if you're wanting to learn more about products, ingredients, myths and topics.

    Ep 39: How To Find Your Signature Fragrance

    We're back for another episode of Beauty IQ Uncensored, brought to you by Adore Beauty. 

    What’s on this episode? We’re glad you asked...

    Before we get to that - here's the TikTok of the bellybutton piercing hole being cleaned: https://vm.tiktok.com/JJUHBwm/

    Blisters.

    We all get 'em, and we're sure you've all got a blister horror story you can tell. We discovered Hannah has the toughest feet ever, Jo doesn't, and a listener recommended the Compeed Blister Stick - it’s a chapstick style product that you swipe on like a lip balm where your shoe is rubbing and stops all blisters apparently!

    How to find your signature fragrance:

    Michael Edwards, fragrance taxonomist and founder of Fragrances of the World, joins us to talk about the fragrance wheel which he invented, all the different fragrance families, how to properly apply perfume, and how to shop perfume online.

    Ep 38: Pregnancy Skin Tips With A Dermatologist

    We're back for another episode of Beauty IQ Uncensored, brought to you by Adore Beauty. 

    What’s on this episode? We’re glad you asked...

    What's the weirdest thing you've ever found in your bellybutton?

    Clearly our wider team at Adore Beauty weren't that keen to share their stories, but we discovered all the sh*t in Hannah's childhood memory box, what our belly buttons collect, and why we seem to always find fluff in there.

    Pregnancy skincare:

    This is a request we get multiple times a week - so here it is! We chat with Dr Nina Wines from Northern Sydney Dermatology and Laser about which ingredients are safe and not advised to be used during your pregnancy. We also discuss pregnancy related concerns like stretch marks, pigmentation and benign skin growths.

    BONUS: Tom Bachik On His Most Iconic Celeb Nail Looks

    Add another one to the list! We're slowly but surely assembling JLo's entire glam team to find out all of her secrets. This time, we're chatting to her MANicurist, Tom Bachik.

    Tom tells us his very interesting (and unexpected) story of how he started out in the industry and made his mark working with some of Hollywood's biggest celebrities including JLo and Kim Kardashian.

    Tom shares what it was like prepping for the Super Bowl performance, and gives us some tips for keeping our nails healthy, and what mistakes we're making...like picking off our SNS.

    You can lust over some of Tom's work on his Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/tombachik/?hl=en

Sarsaahh ,

Amazing and well educated!

Having discovered this podcast I have learnt so much all things skin and beauty. I always learn something new every time and the girls have the best sense of humour. They turn awkward convos into the best convos. Definitely recommend watching if you love being educated in a fun way!

Alissallll ,

My favourite podcast ever

I listen to a huge range of podcast all the time but this is the only podcast I religiously listen to every single week. The girls strike a perfect balance between educating and being entertaining and familiar. I’m obsessed and so thankful this exists!
