It's a struggle to live up to beauty standards and sharing our stories helps show that true beauty is more than skin deep. Whether it's our our weight, race, skin clarity, age, hair, or more, it can all make us feel like we don't fit in or that we're not good enough. The aim of our conversations with women is to show that none of us are alone - to share how different people have, or are working through, these challenges so that we can all be one step closer to being free of them for good. Since it's hosted by Erin Williams, founder of the clean beauty brand Erin's Faces, there's some good dish on makeup and skincare too! For more info head over to www.beautyfullstories.com

    55. Writing My Own Story with Jennifer Sanchez

    55. Writing My Own Story with Jennifer Sanchez

    Jennifer Sanchez has been on Broadway (8 times as of this moment) and is a singer/songwriter who has an amazing story!  She shared how she grew up in a military family with influences from her Mexican, Spanish, German and Japanese heritage.  She studied music in school and graduated high school early.  During her first year of college Jennifer got pregnant (and went into labor during a final!).  Everyone in her life thought she would move back home and that would be it, but instead she started on an amazing journey with her son as her co-pilot.  .Jennifer is a ball of light, joy, determination and silliness and was the perfect conversation to end our season with.   

    Josey and I got to discuss our top selling product, Tamanu Oil, and why it's so popular.  We also go through the different uses for it as well as how it got added to our line in the first place.

    53. Redefining Beauty with Tara Jarrett

    53. Redefining Beauty with Tara Jarrett

    This episode is really fun because our guest, Tara Jarrett, and I both have some epiphanies during our conversation and we get really jazzed about it!  Tara is in real estate development where she literally creates communities and she also has a beauty community through her blog, Her Natural Way and her Instagram account.  
    Tara and I discussed a topic we’re both passionate about – redefining beauty – what does it mean and how can we feel more beautiful?  Does it come from the perfect cream or lipstick or is it deeper than that?  Spoiler alert – yes, it is deeper than that.  She shares how a month of not wearing any makeup to work changed her life and how her new chapter in her mid 30’s is causing her to do some soul searching.  
    Our discussion with Josey today is about our Peptide SPF 30, #3 on our countdown of our top products.  We talk about why sunscreen is important, how ours came to be and why it’s such a top-seller.  Also – it’s game time for SPF as a concept so if you haven’t picked one up, whether it’s ours or someone else’s, please get on it!
    The discussion Tara and I had encompasses so much of what I believe about the concept of beauty – it’s SO. GOOD.  I hope that you love it!

    Stephanie Mero is a consumer advocate, certified wellness coach, cosmetologist and curly hair specialist,author, a new mom and she’s featured in Episode 4 of the new series on HBO Max, Not So Pretty, which is all about the hidden hazards in cosmetics.
    Stephanie used hair products herself and on her clients which initially were wonderful and then later caused her hair to fall out, causing  hair loss and bald spots in both her and her clients.  It’s how her advocacy was born and she challenges brands to do better and calls for more transparency.  We talked about her experiences with all of that as well as challenges that come with growing up with curly hair.  
    Number 5 in our top seller list discussion with Josey is our Fruit Smoothie Lip Gloss which makes me so happy because when we launched her last spring I had no idea if anyone would even wear lip gloss with all of the masks!

We can learn a lot from our differences & “wear your sunscreen”

I’ve been listening to Beauty Full Stories since the premiere of the first episode. I look forward to Erin’s discussions with a variety of amazing women every Tuesday while I cook dinner. I can relate to some of their stories, while I also learn a lot about our differences. Erin’s not afraid to take on the hard topics and I really appreciate that. I can’t wait for more episodes after the summer break. In the meantime, “wear your sunscreen!”

Katherine Phifer ,

Amazing, thought provoking podcast!

I absolutely love Beauty Full Stories and the energy Erin Williams brings to the table. She doesn’t shy away from topics that are tough, and I love how much the podcast reflects people’s wonderful and raw stories. I love listening in, and was also on the show. I have to say, Erin is a fabulous interviewer and created such a beautiful space for me to share my story.

Joanna Carpenter ,

Amazing Real Talk

This podcast digs in in a way that’s so refreshing! Amazing women talking about powerful topics with thoughtfulness and insight. Erin asks brilliant questions - I love how we don’t shy away from the tough stuff!
