Tired in Texas

I stumbled across this podcast with quarantine in full swing and to say I love these conversations is an understatement. I love my kids but all day kids only conversations until hubby gets home can be tough and is pretty easy to kinda feel worn down and permanently tired. The fact that they are all about things self care is a home run. I never felt like I found a podcast that I fully embodied bc they were only about topics/genres that I found interesting not topics I was passionate about. You know, I can talk about roses but I don’t really wanna talk gardening. It’s an easy listen and doesn’t feel overwhelming like when I have it playing while doing work in the office. Can’t wait to hear what the future holds for y’all 🙂

I am so obsessed with this since I found it last week. I’ve told all my friends about this podcast. This has saved me during quarantine. I learned so much about skincare and makeup application; I was doing so much wrong! I can’t get enough.

Great Podcast!

I started listening to Breaking Beauty after the new year and told myself I’m 30 now so I need to get it together and take care of myself! Well, here we are now and I’m a big fan! There’s alway new topics to gain knowledge from and plenty to help myself be my best! Give it a listen! It’s turned me on to so many brands and ideas!

Certifiably addicted

As a lover of all things skincare, I feel like Jill and Carlene are my virtual BFFs that I get to tune in to listen to every week. They break down products and ingredients in understandable and completely relatable ways, and curate great interviews with creators and leaders in the industry! I always look forward to what’s coming next!

Best beauty podcast!

I discovered this podcast on accident, and although I love makeup and skincare, I never would have sought out a beauty podcast had it not been for a Dear Media crossover with The Papaya Podcast and Breaking Beauty. Since discovering Jill and Carlene, I’ve been binge-listening and have thoroughly enjoyed the insight and education gleaned from the hosts and their guests!

Awful and Snotty

You begged for a review. Ok. You talked for 10 minutes before you actually got to the topic. Then I had to endure a boring story about leaky pipes. Then you talk about a product that isn’t even available, but just tell us to pick some up next time we jet off to England or Canada. Of all the entitled, pompous attitudes.

Too many ads

I feel like they take too long getting to an interview or topic. The audio is awful. Editing needs major work.

The best beauty resource!

Love listening each week to Jill and Carlene share each brand’s story! Each week is so informative and such a good balance of sharing product reviews and the history of the brand/entrepreneurial journeys.

Good overall but

My only negative feedback is that when I click a podcast with a guest- I hate that they take 10 minutes before actually bringing them on. I do love the podcast (episodes: Emily Weiss, Tara Harper) the list goes on.. there are so many great episodes with amazing content. I just wish the podcasts would start immediately with the guest instead of the super long rambling into beforehand.

My favorite beauty podcast

As a makeup and all things beauty lover, this podcast is perfect! What makes this podcast so amazing in how genuine the reviews/information are AND the fact that they are interviewing the founders of the beauty companies. It’s not just about beauty products but about the industry. I 10/10 recommend this podcast to anyone that loves learning not just about products but also what the stories are behind those products.

Best of its kind

The hosts do a perfect job of having the dual perspective of both fans of beauty & industry experts. I also love that the episodes never run too long, just enough to educate & inspire ✨

Nope

While this is a professional produced podcast, the content is just not there. I’ve tried a few episodes and every time the hosts have talked about product, they either have no idea what they’re talking about or are out of touch.

Love!

One of the best beauty and skincare podcasts out there - love the honest information these two share! Never too much fluff which I love with the little time I am able to carve out each day for podcasts ...would love to hear a review from them on the Beauty Pie subscription program/products!
