I love it!! Very insightful!! It has changed the way I see skincare as a professional in the skincare business.

this is a great show to gather real information about skin & hair care ingredients and how they work (or don’t work) in a wide assortment of profucts. the show isn’t filled with useless details regarding trends and there is little to no pushing of brands. it’s quite the opposite. if you...Read full review »

Love this show. I’ve been listening for a few years especially while I am processing my hair, something I do myself. I’ve always been interested in content beyond marketing, backed by science. Love the scientific duo, as well! Thank you for offering listeners good advice.
CristinaSturm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/06/23
I love this podcast. Been listening for a year or two now. I love that if I have any questions about ingredients, formulations, and if certain products are necessary, they’ve answered it. It really takes the guesswork out of shopping and keeps me from spending or removing products unnecessarily....Read full review »

Glad this show exists. Great to hear scientists talk for once. I think back about the scare we all had when spray sunblocks were recalled because of high benzene levels, and how listening to the two of them break it down gave it a lot of useful context and calmed me down.

Dude is making feral/homeless cats lives worse. Stop letting these cats breed! I know it feels nice and like you’re doing something good but you’re not. Shelters don’t need more kittens. There are over 3 million cats in shelters already. Just TNR and keep it moving. You can still feed them as...Read full review »

Couldn’t even get through an episode because they ramble about stuff I didn’t come to the show for. Beauty. Not about jury duty. Idk what they on.

Love Val… Perry reminds me of a boomer that just found ai technology and needs to use it for everything. He seems nice but his jokes don’t convey well over audio and it feels awkward listening to him. I only listen because of the topics that they cover and because of Val.

I no longer spend lots of cash on worthless products.
lasvegasseattle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/09/23
Love! I hope they’ll work on the sound. The music blares more than the speaking segments.
changagarcia via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/02/23
Interesting and informative podcast. I can’t think of another podcast with this much science backed beauty or skincare information.
Ashleyn44 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/01/23
The most interesting and informative beauty podcast I have found. Love it, wish it came out more often
Madikkens via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 06/10/23
A MUST for anyone who uses personal care products! ‘Kitty Dad’ Perry and beauty science ‘Maven’ Valerie, formulate a welcome antidote to the ‘over hyped’, ‘over marketed’ billion dollar beauty industry. That sometimes stretches the the truth tighter than a bad face lift! P
JOJO leftie leaning via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/28/23
Too much personal information/casual conversation before getting onto the actual topic. When the topic is then discussed, it is high level or not explained properly and they move onto the next thing. Perhaps I am just the wrong audience expecting something more scientific/technical.
slee0123 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/20/23
I really enjoyed this show until they started discarding beauty professionals. The final straw was when they said hair stylists don’t know any more about your hair growth or health than the average person!! Are you kidding, this is what they study in cosmetology school ? I am not a hairdresser...Read full review »

This podcast has really helped me see through the ‘Marketing Story’ and hype of a lot of products and save myself a lot of money, particularly on skincare and haircare. I really cannot recommend it enough. No matter what question you need answering, there is likely already an episode on it, or...Read full review »
LoopsyLou233 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/08/23
Found this podcast a week ago after doing a deep dive on specific ingredients, I’ve listened to 17 episodes in a week! It’s hard to sift through so much biased information on cosmetic products. It’s exhausting to try to decipher marketing schemes and weasely claims. So this podcast is MUCH...Read full review »

Valerie is the best! Teaching an old dog new tricks, I feel like a real insider! 5*****
dewey123735 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/03/22
Second update: Apparently this is a show about abandoning animals and whining when you can’t shirk your responsibilities because you want a vacation. Perry seems to think people are mean because the don’t have space in their overcrowded, underfunded shelters for him to just abandon the kittens...Read full review »
hamsa381745 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/13/22
Perry, try a product, you can’t be a well rounded expert without taking user experience into account. Valerie should do more of the talking. But the range of content is great and your perspectives are unique in this age of influencers. I’ve learned so much from the cosmetic chemists. This is an...Read full review »

In an ocean of web MD searching, anecdote-based, tik-tok advice givers; this is the life raft I I needed. Really appreciate the platform for the actual scientists to break it down in a comprehensible way for us. And doing it without the bias of advertising funding is another reassuring...Read full review »

The only beauty podcast I trust! Thank you Valerie and Perry for all the work you do.
edaly93 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/30/21
Great content (I fast forward past the conversations at the beginning of the show). Unfortunately Perry and Valerie don’t come through at the same volume, which is really distracting and unpleasant to listen to. Better mixing please. At least Perry doesn’t seem to be interrupting Valerie as much...Read full review »

Valerie and Perry are a wholesome duo that are obviously knowledgeable experts that answer listener questions and chat about what’s in the news related to beauty. They are as non-biased as it gets and they’ve opened my eyes to the manipulative world of marketing. I’ve learned so much that I’ve...Read full review »
