Excellent, informative podcast

The subject of being more mindful in my Beauty habits has been on my mind recently, and this podcast has been the perfect companion for helping demystify a lot of the ‘noise’ around what’s good and bad. I find the subjects covered fascinating, and the podcast is informative and really well delivered. Now tempted to do a course to learn more... :)
