Kate Somerville on The Importance of Peptides, Why She Takes Two Baths a Day, and Creating a Homegrown LA Brand
01:01:09

When it comes to celebrity estheticians in Hollywood, Kate Somerville is the OG. Kirbie and Sara have been longtime fans of Kate and her products, as well as her famous clinic on Melrose Place. But there’s a lot more to know about Kate than the famous faces she’s worked on or the skincare she’s made. In our interview with the legend herself, Kate shares stories about growing up in a barn, her battle with eczema, and how she transformed Janet Gaynor's (the first woman to win an Academy Award) old home into a beauty institution. We also picked her brain about the future of aesthetics, why peptides are so necessary, and the latest addition to her skincare range, KateCeuticals.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Candles, Plus Fragrance Do's and Don'ts With Boy Smells
00:50:29

In honor of Valentine's Day — or Galentine's Day as we like to call it over here at Gloss Angeles — we have Matthew Herman, co-founder of Boy Smells, on the pod to discuss all things candles, fragrance, and emotions (specifically the ones that certain scents can evoke). Matthew and his partner David Kien founded the brand in their LA kitchen as an experiment back in 2016 and now, Boy Smells is one of the most popular candle brands on the market. They even have a collab with the one and only Kacey Musgraves (you've heard Kirbie talk about their "Slow Burn" candle on the pod, no doubt). In this episode, Matthew shares how they transitioned from fashion to candles, what the process is like when creating different scents, and the upcoming launch of the brand's new "cologne de parfums," launching March 2nd.

TikTok, Whitening Tooth Polish and TRESemmé: 7 Beauty Trends You Need to Know
00:49:07

TikTok is the reason many of us have kept our sanity this year due to its thriving algorithm and insanely watchable videos. There's tons of beauty gems to be found but also quite a few ideas we wouldn't recommend partaking in. Today we're explaining the best and worst of trends from the 'Tok, from creating dark circles with makeup (???) to a lawsuit that has many TikTok users throwing out their shampoo and conditioner. Before you overhaul your haircare, listen to today's ep to get a handle on what's really happening.


We also discuss two products we are super impressed by this week: drops that instantly dry your nail polish and a new beauty brand that doesn't compromise on performance while also making products that are truly Earth-friendly.

But if you're not familiar, you're in for a treat. She joins us on the show to talk about makeup history, her incredible vintage cosmetics collection, what products she had to "give up her dream" of, why certain makeup products don't exist and some of her go-to drugstore beauty brands.

The 23-Year-Old Founders of Topicals on the Link Between Chronic Skin Conditions and Your Mental Health
00:53:18

Olamide Olowe and Claudia Teng are not your typical beauty brand founders. They’re young (Gen Z, represent), they’re women of color, and they are encouraging their customers to embrace their chronic skin conditions. While Topicals’ products are made with scientifically-proven ingredients aimed to help issues like eczema, rosacea, and acne, they aren’t meant to “fix” your skin. Olamide and Claudia want their fans to know that flare-ups can be fun or at the very least, not the end of the world. That said, their hero products — Faded, a brightening gel and Like Butter, a hydrating mask — are amazing. We are both huge fans and we are not alone — the brand launched in August and has already amassed a large, loyal following. During our conversation, Olamide and Claudia share how they came to launch Topicals, what they think the beauty industry gets wrong about chronic skin conditions, and why mental health is such an important part of their brand.

In each episode, they do a deep dive with an expert into a specific beauty topic, demystifying questions you’ve always wondered like what a wrinkle actually is and whether or not pores can open and close. If you like our episodes where we dissect a specific ingredient or topic, then you’ll love The Science of Beauty. Be sure to give it a listen!

Is the Manicure Dead? (Spoiler Alert: It's Not. Here's Why.)
00:46:08

Big news today: SARA'S BACK! Our resident Hot Mom is making her grand return to Gloss Angeles and we have a ton of a ground to cover. First of all, we've all been thirsty for newscasters. Does anyone have Chris Cuomo's information? (We kid... kind of.) Kirbie bought some goodies at the Sephora sale including a fragrance everyone needs to get this winter because it's like capturing the scent of a burning match... but in a good way. It was hard to see past all the Election coverage, but one New York Times article managed to cause a huge fuss: Is This the End of the Manicure? pissed off a bunch of people and Kirbie has some thoughts. Then we talk about a ton products we're loving right now, like a tinted moisturizer that's got everyone raving, a hyperpigmentation gel that smells odd but works like a charm, a tattoo artist's venture into the beauty realm, a baby lotion that Sara's been using on herself, and an app that's helped take down Kirbie's stress levels. Check out the ep and then visit our website for all the links your heart desires.

Hocus Pocus Behind-the-Scenes Stories With SFX Makeup Artist Tony Gardner
00:52:20

Today is our Halloween episode! Halloween and Hocus Pocus are synonymous with each other, and if you grew up watching the 1993 classic, chances are it has a special place in your heart. Hocus Pocus is one of Kirbie's top 5 favorite films, and today's guest is the creator of Billy Butcherson's incredible special effects makeup and the animatronic puppet, Binx the cat.


Special effects makeup artist and puppeteer Tony Gardner's story is truly what movies are made of. He’s known for his SFX makeup work in film, tv and music videos, including Zombieland, Bad Grandpa, 127 Hours, Hairspray and Sasha Baron Cohen’s ‘Who is America.’ He’s transformed stars like John Travolta, Gwyneth Paltrow and Katy Perry and is the man responsible for Daft Punk’s incredible helmets. Today he joins us because of his work on some fabulous Halloween films, from The Addams Family to The Blob, The Craft to the Chucky series, and of course, Hocus Pocus. 


Today he shares his first experience on set (which is nothing short of iconic), talks about getting a job offer from legendary SFX makeup artist Rick Baker, dropping out of school to follow his dreams, debunking some myths about the movie, the makeup and filming process for Binx and Billy, and even offers a preview of what we can expect from Hulaween, the mini Hocus Pocus reunion Bette Midler is putting on tonight for the New York Restoration Project. 


All details on Tony, his company Alterian and Hulaween will be available on our website for you to check out, and be sure to head to our Instagram to see some behind the scenes pics too! Enjoy the full moon this weekend, stay safe, and Happy Halloween!

British vs. American Trends, Hair Loss and Discussing Two Big Brand Launches With Emma Guns
00:59:30

Today's guest is probably no stranger to you, especially if you consume a lot of beauty podcasts. Emma Guns is a beauty, health and lifestyle writer, presenter and brand consultant. She created the The Emma Guns Show in April 2016 and has amassed over 8 million downloads of the podcast since. Kirbie was thrilled to have her as a guest co-host because of her expertise in the beauty industry and British POV. Emma discusses her experience with alopecia and PCOS, her thoughts on the "clean" beauty movement and the product she sees as "very American." In headlines, two new beauty brands are on the horizon: Jason Wu will launch his eponymous brand in Target come January 2021 and Bobbi Brown (yes, THE Bobbi Brown) has come out of cosmetics retirement to launch a new DTC brand Jones Road Beauty. Then Emma breaks down a few products that you'll surely be *gunning* for (sorry) at the end of her review.

Ron got his start in the industry formulating for brands like Clinique and La Mer; he went on to create successful beauty blog BeautyStat, the namesake of his brand.

Interviewing Cardi B, Working With Tracee Ellis Ross, and Confronting Medical Racism with Elle.com Beauty Director Chloe Hall
00:51:01

Today we have Elle.com's Beauty Director Chloe Hall as our special guest host! Chloe joins Kirbie to discuss what it was like working with Tracee Ellis Ross on Elle's State of Black Beauty package, interviewing Cardi B., and writing her most recent story about Jessica Florence — a woman who had stage 3 breast cancer but experienced medical racism. We also discuss big news coming out of California: the "Toxic-Free Cosmetics Act" was passed. What does it mean, exactly?

Is the Beauty Industry a Cult? Linguistically, Maybe. Featuring Author and Linguist Amanda Montell
01:04:15

Amanda Montell is a writer, linguist, and author of the critically acclaimed book Wordslut: A Feminist Guide to Taking Back the English Language, which has earned praise from readers and critics alike, including publications like The New York Times, Time Magazine, and Harper's Bazaar. Amanda is currently developing Wordslut for television with FX, while working on her second book, Cultish—about the language of cults from Scientology to SoulCycle—slated for publication in June 2021 (which she gave us a sneak peek on). Amanda's other writing has been featured in Marie Claire, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Nylon, Byrdie, and Who What Wear, where she formerly served as the Features & Beauty Editor. We marked this episode as explicit because of the converation, which is respectful but may be considered explicit to some.


On this episode, Amanda dives deep into the somewhat problematic language we use in the beauty industry, advice for how we can redefine the way we talk about ourselves and our bodies, and why it's actually really progressive of us to say like so freaking much.

We have her on the show because of the work she's doing with the Pull Up or Shut Up initiative — a movement she created — where brands are being asked to disclose not only how many black employees they have, but how many are in leadership positions. The movement has caught on quickly and many of you are demanding transparency from your favorite brands.


From graduating high school at 16 to bringing a huge mass brand to Nigeria, Sharon was born to speak out and make change. She is the founder, CEO and creative director of UOMA Beauty, a brand a little over a year old that's all about breaking the status quo. Sharon explains why this movement is essential to progress, how it will benefit black lives (and livelihoods), reveals which popular black-owned brand is not actually blacked-owned, and shares her best piece of business advice.

01:00:21

You asked for this one: in our glorious Facebook group, you wanted to know how products are picked to be sold at certain retailers and what the future of beauty shopping will look like. We instantly thought of one of our favorite e-tailers, Dermstore, who has been a leader in the skincare space and online beauty shopping since it was created in 1999 by a dermatologist. 14 years later, they were acquired by Target and have quickly built a curated assortment of the finest brands in beauty. President Cyndi Isgrig joins us today to discuss what differentiates as brand you find at Dermstore vs. other retailers, how shopping for your favorite products will change over the next year and what product she thinks we'll see more of in 2020. Plus, a distasteful launch that's ruffled our feathers and a shoutout to a special listener!

00:49:24

CBD is easily one of the most pitched products in our inboxes. We sometimes feel so overwhelmed with CBD brands and products that it can be easy for us to want to move on to the next big trend. The fact is, however, that most people are just discovering this "gorgeous molecule" (as Casey Georgeson of Saint Jane puts it). We invited Meredith Schroeder, co-founder Fleur Marché — an e-comm site decidated to wellness-focused cannabis products and tauted as the "Sephora of CBD" — on the pod to break everything down: what are the real benefits of CBD, what claims can be made, how do you find the perfect CBD product, can it get you high, and what's next when it comes to CBD?

Our CVS Skin Care Haul: Drugstore Products For $30 or Less
01:13:05

It’s no secret we love prestige brands, like a fancy serum or decadent créme, but we also believe good skin care doesn’t mean spending hundreds of dollars. Our personal philosophy is you should only buy what you need. If something is working for you, keep doing it! You don’t need every product you see posted about on instagram, websites, and yes, even Gloss Angeles. But if you are shopping to update your regimen, you don't need to dole out a ton of cash to get an efficacious product. We reached out to our friends at CVS about doing a drugstore-themed episode and they graciously gave us gift cards to curate our own skin care regimen at the store.

Australian Beauty Advice With Go-To Skin Care Founder (and Former Beauty Editor) Zoë Foster Blake
00:57:49

It's a beauty editor kiki! Zoë Foster Blake is one of Australia’s most celebrated beauty experts. But before she became a beauty brand founder, she was just like us — a beauty editor! Zoe was the beauty director of Cosmopolitan and Harper’s BAZAAR Australia. She then went on to write a few books, including Amazing Face, a best-selling beauty bible, and then decided to start her own beauty blog back in 2006. After years of reviewing and using every kind of skin care product on the face of the earth, Zoë decided to take a stab at creating her own. She wanted to make something that was simple, stress-free, and more about self-love than “fixing” stuff. Thus Go-To Skin Care was born. 

Go-To focus on clean formulas and has a cheeky brand voice. With the success of her brand, Zoë launched Gro-To Skin Care, a clean line for kids. It's super cute, trust us. Listen to learn how Zoë editorial expertise equipped her to become a standout brand founder.

Thread Lifts: The Treatment That Creates "Instagram Face" (With Dr. Jason Emer)
01:14:24

The most hush-hush treatment in Hollywood are thread lifts, which are being tauted as an alternative to face lifts. If you're not in the market for a face lift, we get it — this treatment is being used for a lot more than that. You may have heard about them through Goop herself, Gwyneth Paltrow. Thread lifts use dissolvable sutures to lift the skin in the face and body; after a few months to a year, they disappear and are replaced with collagen. Dr. Jason Emer has been performing thread lifts at his practice in West Hollywood since 2015 and today he shares with us everything we need to know about this treatment. Plus, we're headed to Austin! We'd love to see you at The RealSelf Modern House of Beauty. Enter two win a pair of tickets to our invite-only live podcast with Renée Rouleau on Friday, 3/13. Details on our Instagram!

Creating a Clean Beauty Brand With Ilia Founder Sasha Plavsic
00:22:36

Sasha Plavsic is the founder of ILIA Beauty, a prestige line of natural and organic beauty products that combine superior color performance and nourishing organics based in Laguna Beach. Before Sasha started the company, she had years of branding experience helping beauty and wellness companies, including Urban Decay and Saje Natural Wellness. So when she discovered that there wasn’t any existing clean beauty products that were not packaged in bamboo, she found herself with a goal in mind (and the experience to back it up): create a tinted lip balm that was luxurious and didn’t contain any nasty ingredients. Fast forward to today and ILIA is one of the leading clean color cosmetics brands out on the market. We’re talking to Sasha about starting her brand as well as Ilia’s latest launch: the Super Serum Skin Tint.

Korean Beauty Trends and the World of White Labeling Products with Charlotte Cho
00:54:49

You'd be hard pressed to find a beauty lover that hasn't tried a Korean beauty product or trend. But there was once a time when purchasing K-beauty products was difficult unless you physically traveled to the region. Soko Glam changed the game by curating the best K-Beauty had to offer. The brains behind the operation — and the skincare brand Then I Met Youis Charlotte Cho.

Charlotte is an esthetician and author, and today she's talking about what it was like launching Soko Glam 7 years ago, the feeling/term "Jeong" and how she applies it to her skin care routine, what white labeling is, plus what trends she believes we'll see popping up in 2020.

Is Blue Light Skin Damage a Myth? Talking About Visible Light's Effect on the Skin With Dr. Loretta
00:54:57

You might know Dr. Loretta Ciraldo, MD, FAAD, as the creator of the cult-favorite Tightening Eye Gel, which won Allure’s Best of Beauty Awards this year. She is a highly sought-after board-certified dermatologist with over 40 years of experience, an avid clinical researcher, published author, and a regular on-camera expert.

Her research experience started in 1975 in the Dermatology Department of Harvard Medical School, where she performed early testing on the effects of UVA on human skin and contributed to the development of the Fitzpatrick Skin Type Classification — so she knows a lot about sun exposure. She received her MD from Downstate Medical College of State University of New York and completed her dermatology residency at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, NY, where she was selected as Chief Resident.

Dr. Loretta is line of anti-aging skincare products, formulated with high concentrations of advanced medical-grade actives, combined with blends of the most beneficial essential oils and botanical and marine ingredients to ensure that skin remains unexposed to harmful external influences. In today's episode, we're discussing how blue light may be contributing to your skin in a negative way, which is why sunscreen is essential every single day — even indoors.

How Tatcha's Vicky Tsai Healed Her Dermatitis With Japanese Skin Care
00:35:15

Vicky Tsai, founder and “Chief Treasure Hunter” of Tatcha, one of the most beloved skin care brands of the last decade and one of our favorites here at Gloss Angeles. After graduating from business school and working for large corporations, Vicky spent years traveling back and forth from the states to Asia. She developed acute dermatitis and tried everything to treat her skin. During her time in Japan, Vicky discovered the world of Japanese beauty, thanks to an encounter with a modern-day geisha. She loved how pure, simple, and effective the classical Japanese beauty philosophy was and decided she wanted to share the secrets and ingredients she learned about with the rest of the world. Today, Tatcha works with scientists in both Japan and the U.S. to create formulations from scratch that honor traditional Japanese beauty practices, but are made with advanced technology and innovation.

Vicky also discusses Tatcha's new Serum Stick and what makes this new launch so special.

The Best Treatments For Acne, Fine Lines, and Dark Circles According to Celebrity Esthetician Georgia Louise
00:49:36

Georgia Louise is one of the world’s most sought after facialists, with clients like Jennifer Anistion, Emma Stone, Emily Blunt and Linda Evangelista. She received professional training in France, Switzerland and the UK, and established her practice in London in 2006. Her famously acclaimed Atelier was launched in Manhattan's Upper East Side in 2012, offering high end non-invasive facials, rated as the best facials in NYC.

Her facial treatments are designed to naturally and instantly lift cheekbones and brows, depuff and brighten the face and soften fine lines and wrinkles without the need of botox or fillers — her face massage is orgasmic to put it bluntly. She now has a location at the Allbright in West Hollywood, where we recorded today's ep! 

Georgia's transparent approach made for a great interview: she breaks down exactly what celebrities do to get pristine red carpet skin (and it's not just "drinking a lot of water,"), how often you should be getting facial treatments to see results, plus what treatments work the best for acne, fine lines, dark circles and jowls.

00:33:09

We want to acknowledge the echo you’re going to hear in today’s ep — it’s because we are on location at Priscilla Ono’s gorgeous penthouse!

She was chosen out of hundreds of artists to join the Fenty Beauty Global Artistry Team in 2017. Priscilla talks to us about the looks she had to create on Rihanna to get the job, the most underrated Fenty product and how to properly apply highlighter and contour. Oh yeah, and of course we have a fabulous Fenty giveaway for you this holiday season!

Thanks for listening to our holiday episodes! We go back to Tuesday-only episodes beginning 12/31. We’ll be on vacation all next week. Happy holidays!

The Power of Great Sleep: Change Your Routine, Change Your Life (Featuring The Sleep Doctor)
00:51:12

Is beauty sleep real? How long should you really be sleeping? Plus a warning about melatonin. We're answering all of your most-asked sleep questions today on the show with The Sleep Doctor himself. Dr. Michael Breus is a Clinical Psychologist, a Diplomate of the American Board of Sleep Medicine, and a Fellow of The American Academy of Sleep Medicine. He specializes in sleep disorders and is one of the only psychologists in the world with his credentials and distinction. Dr. Breus has authored a number of books, tours the world lecturing on sleep, has appeared on CNN, Oprah, and The View, and is also on the clinical advisory board of The Dr. Oz Show. Dr. Breus has a private practice in LA where he helps his clients figure out how to sleep better, which is his main mission in life. We met Dr. Breus at an event for the launch of Mighty Night, a new supplement from HUM Nutrition that encourages more restful sleep and promotes healthier-looking skin. The event was the most engaged we'd ever seen an audience; he had a line out the door after his presentation. Clearly, getting good sleep is something people desperately want to know more about. We wanted him on the show to bring this information to you. Learn more about your Sleep Chronotype at ChronoQuiz.com. (For the record, Kirbie is a bear 🐻and Sara is a dolphin 🐬. Go figure.)

How Wine Inspired a Cult-Favorite Serum With April Gargiulo From Vintner's Daughter
00:46:39

April Gargiulo is the founder of Vintner’s Daughter, the cult-favorite brand beloved by skincare fanatics, from celebrities and beauty editors to clean beauty devotees and face oil enthusiasts. When April became pregnant with her first daughter, she tried to find a skincare product she could use that was free from chemicals and murky ingredients — she couldn’t find any. April had spent years working in her family’s wine business, learning the importance of quality formulation and ingredient sourcing, so using the same practices she learned on the vineyards, April decided to take a stab at creating her own beauty solution. The result? The Active Botanical serum, a holy grail skincare product made with whole botanicals and packed with nutrients that could replace your entire skincare routine while delivering dramatic results. Since then, she’s also created the Active Treatment Essence, which has also garnered a massive fanbase.

5 Ingredients We Typically Avoid in Skin Care Products
00:53:42

Our job is to try everything at least once, but that doesn't mean we don't pump the breaks when it comes to certain ingredients. We've learned over time what our skin can withstand, and we notice patterns when it comes to how our skin reacts to specific ingredients. Is it the ingredient itself, or how it's formulated? Consider this episode your roadmap — by no means are we saying all products with these ingredients are bad, but if you find your skin is breaking out, overly sensitive or has developed an adverse reaction to a certain product, this can help you narrow down a possible culprit.

Let's have a bo-talk, shall we? If you've ever wondered about injectables, how they work, their side effects or anything else regarding Botox and fillers, you'll want to save today's chat.

She is an Emmy-nominated actress, Emmy-winning documentary film producer, SAG award winner, and an equal rights advocate and activist.

She is the first openly transgender person to appear on the covers of TIME, Cosmopolitan, and Essence, to name a few, and has been the face of countless campaigns, including Beyonce’s IVY PARK line. Laverne is on our show today to chat about a new partnership with Band-Aid and (RED), and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have her on. She also explains why she never confirmed her age for so long and how to be a bad bitch.

How To Get Rid Of Adult Acne & Blemishes, According To Renée Rouleau
00:56:07

On today’s episode, we’re chatting with Renée Rouleau, famed esthetician and the woman responsible for teaching Kirbie a ton about skincare. Not only is she a huge favorite among beauty editors and celebrities alike (including Demi Lovato, Lisa Rinna, and Lili Reinhart), but Renée also runs her successful eponymous brand, which she started 20 years ago. Renée chats with us about how she got started as an esthetician, her advice for how to figure out your skin type, and what to do about adult acne and blemishes. Plus, why skin mists might be a huge no-no during your daytime routine.

The Mistakes You're Making With Sun Protection
00:47:14

90% of aging comes from daily sun exposure — not major sunburns! Today we’re breaking down sun protection, the different types of rays that cause both burns and pre-mature aging and how much sunscreen is essential for optimal coverage. However, another important aspect of sun protection is what to do after you’ve been in the sun or gotten a burn, because chances are you'll have a burn in your lifetime. What ingredients should you avoid, how to keep your skin in good shape, plus how to treat it in the best way possible — all in today's episode.

How to Properly Read a Product Label
00:46:29

You asked, we answered! A question we often get is “How do I read a product label?” We get it. Labels are very confusing. For instance, did you know hypoallergenic actually means nothing? Manufacturers can make these claims, however, the FDA does not have a formal process for determining what products are deemed “hypoallergenic." How bizarre.

https://www.fda.gov/cosmetics/cosmetics-labeling-claims/hypoallergenic-cosmetics

Today, we’re explaining how to read an ingredients list, what certain logos mean (or don’t mean), plus what terms to be weary of — what’s marketing jargon and what’s the real deal.
