Your favorite (we hope!) dynamic duo is back together for a full and regularly scheduled episode. This week, we asked pharmacist Ian Ginsberg, the president of C.O. Bigelow, to share some of the top questions his customers ask and give us the answers. The discussion veers into very interesting territory (“Do bees have faces?” “Why do you want a kidney-colored lipstick?”) and there’s real talk about confusing topics such as parabens, sulfates, probiotics, and how to pass a drug test. Before the interview, we discuss Olaplex, French Girl "nothingness" and Jess’s experience at the David Mallet salon, and Jenn's sassy AF grandma.
Below are links to the people, topics, and products mentioned on this episode. If you have any questions (or just want to say hi) reach out to us on Instagram, Twitter or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
