TeeChuk ,

enough beauty podcasts

Just when I thought I’ve subscribed to all the good beauty podcasts, I came across two co-hosts with real chemistry, slick commentary, and a valuable perspective on beauty for women of color! Their beauty journeys, their research, their reasons why, their efforts to support black-owned and of course the stories behind some of those black-owned businesses is much appreciated.
