    Ep. 412: Lash Serum Side Effects, Probiotics, Gym Lips & The Week’s Beauty News

    An ophthalmologist explains why cosmetic lash serums like Grande Cosmetics GrandeLASH-MD may cause drug-like side effects, such as fat loss that leads to a change in eye shape. Before that, Jess recaps the Fragrance Foundation awards and Jenn has thoughts on gym lips and a few other viral beauty trends. Plus, we discuss three beauty brands that are dropping their prices; Dr. Whitney Bowe’s new skincare line; research showing probiotic lotions may be better than benzoyl peroxide for treating acne; and the man who set a world record for the largest collection of perfume factices (they’re on display at an exhibition space in New Jersey, and you can book an appointment to visit).

Jo Franc

Listened for just a few minutes. Not sure why she found it necessary to be using swear words. Offensive. Think it’s cute?
