What Is Squalene And Should You Put It On Your Face?
play Episode

If you’ve been hearing whispers of a miracle skincare ingredient called ‘Squalane’ (or Squalene), you’re not alone.

On this week’s episode of You Beauty, Leigh unpacks exactly what Squalane is, what it can do for your skin and in which beauty products you can find it.

Plus, a new mum who “hasn’t slept more than three hours in a row for 11 months” (ouch) asks Leigh and Kelly for advice on a basic skincare routine that won’t take too long. Of course, they obliged and came up with some skincare solutions for the weary and time-poor.

And in our Spendy Savey segment, Leigh recommends a $12 lipstick that’ll fast become your everyday lip, and Kelly shares why she loves a cult setting spray.

Every product mentioned on todays show is listed below;
