Each week, they have honest, revealing (sometimes TMI) conversations about all the big and little things they’re adding to, or removing from, their carts. They decide what's worth the monetary/emotional investment, and what's not. From beauty products and health trends, to celebrities and philosophies they’re passionate about, our hosts dig into anything we buy into and what it says about who we are.

    Add It Again: The ABCs - Aunties, Books and Contouring

    This week Ku shares her newest picks for a fresh face of makeup – just what we need for springtime – and no part of the routine is left out. Then Ku and Su share a sleuth of books and movies that remind us why representation, of any kind, matters in media. Whether it's seeing people that look like you or reliving a universal experience (like puberty, agh), stories that diversify narrative while unifying the human experience are important to support, and this episode is jam-packed with them!

Great show, but why SO many ads?

Love you two and your show so much but why so many ads? It’s hard to enjoy the podcast when there are so many disturbances. Putting a bunch of ads together is even better than spreading them out like this. Please listen to your episodes and feel the vibe shift. I feel like this duo out of any podcasters would respect wanting the show to be an enjoyable experience overall! Really do love the show but it’s too much :(

Was relatable, until it wasn’t.

I loved the premise of this show and have tried a handful of the recommended products with varying degrees of success. I liked how they used their platform to bring attention to some issues that were important to them. However, I find one of the hosts to be completely out touch when it comes to relatability. I was out when this host said they had a dress code for their baby shower.

Aunties, our faces needs you

Love this podcast and appreciate the recs! Snaps to Ronnie Cheing for his cameo. One topic we’d touched on here and there but we’d love to hear a full episode dedicated to: face care. Creams, serums, foundation, concealer. Smooth skin, acne skin, wrinkles, elasticity, sunscreen, etc. Is the Korean 10-step routine legit (my experience says no)? And on and on.
