Road trip! In this coming-in-hot episode, we sit down with fellow beauty podcasters Kirbie Johnson and Sara Tan, hosts of Gloss Angeles podcast in LA. Just one degree of separation from A-listers, these beauty editors give a distinctly West Coast perspective on all things beauty. While literally wearing pajamas, we are spilling the tea, covering everything from the craziest press trip they’ve ever been on to the professional treatment fails they’d sooner not try again.

But that’s not all. You’ll also hear about the buzzy skin treatment taking Hollywood by storm (Kirbie wants to try it next!); the muscle-toning treatment said to replace sit-ups; and the next level cosmetic tattoos giving fillers and transplants a run for their money. And because this is a true #podswap, tune in to hear Breaking Beauty on Gloss Angeles’ feed to hear about our favourite drugstore buys – including the new faux lashes Jill is obsessed with and the It Cosmetics CC Cream dupe Carlene discovered recently – in stores right now.

AND a shout-out to even more newfound #podfam friends we met in L.A, Beauty Biz BFFs. Kasey Boone of Glow Skincare LA and Lorena Ashmore of Dear Lash Love are two aestheticians who dedicate their weekly podcast to beauty and biz, especially for business owners in the spa or salon world (they so kill the merch game!) We had a blast sipping rosé while dishing all about our career paths, skincare advice and so much more. Listen now!

A special thanks to Away for providing us with our travel swag the aluminum suitcases which we decked out in lipstick stickers, were a dream to help haul our show gear. It makes show setup a cinch – no matter if we’re in a hotel room or in a spa room surrounded by LED machines (that happened!). Thanks Away for helping us take our show on the road! #travelaway
