    Kate Somerville on The Importance of Peptides, Why She Takes Two Baths a Day, and Creating a Homegrown LA Brand

    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.

    How to Get the Most Out of Your Candles, Plus Fragrance Do's and Don'ts With Boy Smells

    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). Matthew and his partner David Kien founded the brand in their LA kitchen as an experiment back in 2016 and now, Boy Smells is one of the most popular candle brands on the market. 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.
