Love this!

I love this podcast! It’s a mixture of beauty tips and great science. So glad I found it and can confidently choose products. Also glad to have a found a podcast that loves a review article as much as I do!

Fascinating

Love this podcast, great for skincare junkies like myself, so interesting to find out why these products work and when not to spend your money but explained in layman’s terms for the average consumer. Perry and Valerie have great personalities which also make it fun to listen to. Thanks guys!

Eye opening, intelligent and funny!

Am new to podcasts and absolutely love this one! Funny, intelligent and informative. I’m finding answers to questions I didn’t even know to ask.
