This episode topic was suggested by Patricia, who wrote:

Can you guys do an “All About That Acid” segment? I.e., what each kind of acid/active does, what side effects you have experienced, what order you have found them to be the most successful (for those who are using all of them), which particular brands/products have been effective for you, etc.?

Hell yes, we’re here with the acid, get ready to BURN!

Rank #13: Episode 14: Skincare Boner

Podcast cover
Read more

Inevitably, in every hobby/skincare obsession, there’s going to be a honeymoon period where everything is exciting and unknown; when you don’t yet know a BHA from a PHA, when you can’t yet disassemble and reassemble a 15-step routine blindfolded, and when your wallet greets every new shop with a shriek of terror.

When those days of discovery have passed and when the flames of passion (and your wallet) have cooled to a jaded dull glow, then you must ask: What gives you a Skincare Boner?

The Snail Unit answers this question, discusses mullets, nerds out over reducing spider veins, and predictably can’t keep a straight face. Boner. Heh heh heh.
