Description

Which night creams will make you look well-rested, how long can you really last on Whole30, can emptying your closet actually bring you joy, and is the Hanacure mask really just intended to get you to post an unflattering photo of your face mid-mask on Instagram? These are the kinds of self-care questions that wellness addicts and writers Kate Spencer and Doree Shafrir discuss each week, along with a special guest.
