LASIK, Lumify, & Lash Growth Serums: What You Should Know About Eye Health

Season 1, Ep. 405

We’re talking all things eyes on today’s episode with Dr. Rany Woo, a cataract and refractive eye surgeon who recently did Sara’s life-changing EVO ICL procedure. We ask Dr. Rany how our eyes change as we age, the differences between all the refractive eye surgeries (LASIK vs. PRK vs. Smile), and the reason you shouldn’t be using those red eye-reducing eye drops as much as you are. She also shares the five things she would never do as an ophthalmologist, from DIY fireworks to using eyelash growth serums.

  • 413. Scentbird's Founder and Her Problematic Spritual Teachings and Why Kirbie Isn't So Sure About Augustinus Bader

    What if we told you a certain founder has claimed the cure for cancer is aligning with your life's purpose and also claims Hitler wasn't evil? Those are just a few truly mind-boggling topics Scentbird's CEO and Founder has been posting about on Youtube. Kirbie and Sara dive into the problematic nature of it all (to say the least). But first, we share why Rhode blushes are supreme and set them apart from other blush launches. Major thanks to our friends at dae for partnering with us on this episode, who just launched a new 3-in-1 styling cream you can take on the go — and Glams were the first to try it before it launched! We discuss why it's the perfect travel companion for your hair. Plus, are injectables and fillers officially on their way out? And why is Kirbie taking a step back from her near-obsession with Augustinus Bader after all these years? All that and more in today's ep, which you can also watch on Youtube!

  • 412. Jonathan Van Ness Returns to Share What Really Happened to JVN Hair

    What really happened to JVN Hair? If you’ve listened to the pod, you know we’ve been following the celebrity haircare brand’s journey, from its launch in 2021 with Amyris to its sale at auction to Windsong Global for $1.25 million earlier this year. We’ve had experts come on to discuss the situation, like investor and advisor Maggie Sellers, but the only person who really knows what went down and what the future holds for JVN Hair is JVN themselves. Today, we’re joined by founder Jonathan Van Ness and JVN Hair Global President Teresa Lo. JVN and Teresa open up about why they were sold at auction for less than what they were worth, what the internet has gotten wrong about the sale, and what’s in store for the brand. Watch this episode and subscribe to our YoutubeShop this episodeGlossAngelesPod.comhttps://glossangeles.komi.ioCALL US: 424-341-0426Shop products from our episodesJoin our FB Group: @glossangelspod, @kirbiejohnson, @saratanTwitter: @glossangelespod, @kirbiejohnson, @saratanEmail:
