    Meet The #DamnGood Spring 2021 Skincare Buys That Are Actually Worth The Hype

    Meet The #DamnGood Spring 2021 Skincare Buys That Are Actually Worth The Hype

    What’s up, Spring? This week, listen in as we share the latest #DamnGood skincare buys we solemnly swear are worth the hype– along with the sleeper hits that nobody needs to be sleeping on. You’ll hear about a brand-new French skincare brand –  it’s The Ordinary-meets-Tata Harper – that we predict will be the next beauty editor darling. Plus, we talk about the Korean “Eye Cream For Face” (?!) trend that’s touching down in North America even as we record, with a drugstore buy that’s selling every 10 seconds in the U.K. right now. A new Skinceuticals antioxidant serum for oily skin that might just take the place of Jill’s precious CE Ferulic?! You’ll have to hear it to believe it. And in a stunning Part Deux, we’re back next week with our #DamnGood Spring 2021 picks in makeup, haircare and more – including a test-drive of a viral sensation taking over TikTok. 
    Let us know if you like the 2-part format on Instagram, Twitter, our private Facebook group

    How to Fix Your Quarantine Nails With Celebrity Manicurist Marian Newman

    How to Fix Your Quarantine Nails With Celebrity Manicurist Marian Newman

    Meet Marian Newman aka THE Queen of Nails. No, literally, the nail expert was recently awarded the British Empire Medal in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for services to the beauty industry during Covid-19, and she knows so much about nails, she even launched an online diploma program last month! Marian’s nail artistry has graced the tips of everyone from Kate Moss to Lady Gaga – she’s even written tomes showcasing her backstage-worthy, eye-popping manicures, along with technical textbooks on nail anatomy and salon safety.
    Today, Marian joins us on the pod to chat about the budget hand cream that really works, along with the nail polishes that wear the longest without chipping. Then, find out why she believes that at-home UV gel manicures and those viral “burst” gel-polish removers are a massive “Don’t”. Plus, Marian breaks down the *brand new*, crack-filling innovation from CND called Plexigel that's legit the biggest thing to hit the nails category since Shellac.

    Paula Begoun is the 67-year-old founder of Paula’s Choice skincare and the author of over 20 books, including Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me. Today, the industry veteran is here to retrace the origin story behind the iconic range, dubbed as “The Original Internet Beauty Brand” and one of the first to go “fragrance-free” long before “free from” lists were even a thing. Today, the 26-year-old company is gaining more popularity than ever before, ranking as one of the Top 5 most-talked about beauty brands on Reddit.
    Find out why Gen-Z influencer Skincare By Hyram has touted the best-selling Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant as “Sorcery in a Bottle.” Then, stay tuned as Paula goes off on the biggest cosmetics myths she’s busting these days, as she sets the record straight on the number one threat your skin: ”Inflammaging.” Plus, find out why she thinks antioxidants are the unsung heroes of skincare, along with her predictions on which ingredients are going to peak next (Hint: turns out CBD may have actual scientific legs, guys.) And oh, yes we definitely ask her thoughts on cosmetic surgery.
