We've got a new main squeeze: It's Sandra Lee, MD, aka Dr. Pimple Poppper! This week we have her on to talk about her work as a dermatological surgeon and how she became the Queen of the Popaholics. If we inspired you to check out one of her videos, but you're scurred, then try the one below. It's not too squirty. (And, yes, you read that right: It has been viewed more than 22.9 million times.)
If you're still with us, then you'll also want to know the results of our Mascara Challenge. We tested ten of the top-selling drugstore mascaras of 2016 from Revlon, L'Oréal Paris, Maybelline, Almay, Neutrogena, NYX, Wet n' Wild, Physicians Formula, e.l.f., and Covergirl. Jess's top three were L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Original (faithful listeners will know that was no big surprise!), Revlon Ultimate All-in-One, and e.l.f. Beautifully Bare Lash Tint. Jenn liked NYX Double Stacked, Neutrogena Healthy Volume Waterproof, and Revlon Ultimate All-in-One.
We also praise these wise words from Shirley Manson and discuss how sanitary (or not) retail makeup testers are—and whether or not we like to use them. Other products mentioned on the pod are below.
Dr. Sandra Lee's go-tos (until her skincare line comes out):
Cortaid (the OTC topical steroid that she puts on a red pimple that has already been popped or doesn't have a head to pop)
Dr. Pimple Popper Comedone Extractor
Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser
Dove beauty bar
#raiseawand to Nars Blush in Sex Appeal
#raiseawand to Lip Pencil
(Jenn likes the ones from MAC, but Have to Have It, the shade she mentioned, was actually limited edition and is no longer available. There are plenty of other shades to choose from here.)
