By popular demand, this week we’re bringing you the #DamnGood indie brands that we personally can’t get enough of. Tune in as we spray, swatch and slather our way to some new hidden gems that have quickly made their way to our topshelf.

You'll hear about:

> The hottest, UK-based makeup artist brand that’s poised to be the next Charlotte Tilbury?
> An AAPI-backed, Ayurvedic body oil that Carlene’s swearing by all bare-leg season long
> A creamy, cleanser-exfoliator-mask hybrid that will have sensitive types squeezing for more
> An esthetician-developed, non-drying acne serum that *actually* diminishes pesky zits
> A clever hair tie – developed by a pro stylist – that stands the ponytail test of thiccccc hair girlies
> Our new summer fragrance that we’re dubbing, “vacation-in-a-bottle” (Pssst: Listeners get 20% off their entire order at with code: BEAUTY.)
