    The #DamnGood Body-Ody-Ody Sauces + Straight Up Solutions We Recommend Right Now

    The #DamnGood Body-Ody-Ody Sauces + Straight Up Solutions We Recommend Right Now

    Is body care the new skin care? If the throngs of body sauces, XL exfoliating sheets and pedi-in-a-sock launches are any indication, you can bet your butt it is. But are they all worth the cheddar? In today’s #DamnGoods edition, we tell you everything there is to know about Dr Dennis Gross’ Body Exfoliating Pads, inspired by the iconic 2-step Alpha Beta pads that acne sufferers adore for the face. We’ll fill you in on Fenty’s new Body Sauce Luminizing Tint and how it compares to last summer’s Fenty hit, Body Lava. Plus, we tested a slew of body lotions to let you know which one ticked all the boxes  – along with the cutsie body lotion that didn’t quite measure up to its cult face care successes. Finally, stay tuned ‘til the end to hear about some solid — and not so solid — solutions for how to get your smoothest bikini line shave evah. Short shorties be ready!

    Your Head-to-Toe, Do's and Don'ts Skincare Guide with LA Beautyologist

    Your Head-to-Toe, Do's and Don'ts Skincare Guide with LA Beautyologist

    We’re getting a head-start on Hot Girl summer prep with Nayamka Roberts-Smith, aka LA Beautyologist and the “Internet’s Esthetician,” – who Cardi B also counts on for her facials! Nai’s 500K YouTube fans come for the no B.S. advice, like the simple #60SecondRule she coined that’s changing people’s cleansing routines – and their skin– for the better. 
     
    In today’s show, we ask Nai about some of the biggest Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to all of the DIY grooming we’ve been attempting while we can’t get to our beloved estheticians. Nai gives us the head-toe treatment on everything from peel-off masks, pore vacuums, dermaplaning and solutions for keratosis pilaris (that chicken skin on the back of the arms, ahem.) Stay tuned to the end as Nai reveals which at-home skincare devices she thinks are really worth the money.

    Soko Glam Co-Founder Charlotte Cho on Her New Book, "Triple-Cleansing" & Why K-Beauty’s “Golden Age” is Far From Over

    Soko Glam Co-Founder Charlotte Cho on Her New Book, "Triple-Cleansing" & Why K-Beauty’s “Golden Age” is Far From Over

    Nearly a decade ago, Charlotte Cho introduced North America to the concept of the “10-Step Korean Skincare Routine” via her e-commerce destination, Soko Glam, along with its genius sister blog on all things K-Beauty, The Klog. Since then, Charlotte has become a bonafide esthetician, a best-selling author and co-founder of her own skincare lines, Then I Met You and Good (Skin) Days. In the meantime, K-beauty is thriving –  it’s now a $13.1 billion phenomenon, all thanks to the Korean “skin-first” philosophy, renowned for coaxing a radiant, makeup-free glow.
    Today, Charlotte tells us why one of the very first products that she developed, Then I Met You Living Cleansing Balm, has now won 15 awards and why the holy grail product was recently named “Product of the Year” by British skin expert Caroline Hirons. Then, stay tuned as Charlotte schools us on the next skincare secrets in K-Beauty: hydrating acid toners, “triple cleansing,” “cushion” sunscreens and more. And finally, listen in as Charlotte gives us a sneak peek at her second book, The Little Book of Jeong, set for release this summer – along with the steps she’s taking beyond beauty to #stopasianhate.

    The Best of Spring 2021 Part Deux! The Viral Hits (and Misses!) in Makeup, Hair & Fragrance

    Last week in Part 1 of our Best of Spring #DamnGoods Special, we revealed the latest skincare buys that are highly recommended by Jill and Carlene. Today, they review the viral hits (and misses!) that you’re probably seeing all over your feed. From the sold-out Anastasia “Brow Freeze” that’s earned 3 million views on TikTok to the “Sky High” Maybelline mascara that even drugstores can’t keep in stock – listen in to hear what’s worth the chase. But that’s not all, Carlene gets all swoon-y about some new fragrances she thinks would befit all of those smokeshow scenes in Bridgerton. And, stay tuned as your humble hosts peel back the curtain on the marketing hype machine to expose the beauty products that are really not worth the cheddar.
