The Big Boo Cast, Episode 127

So it’s only been a few days since the last episode, but here’s the second part of the conversation we started on episode 126. We jump straight into a discussion about skin care – which includes an update on some new methods we’re trying and Melanie’s evaluation of her new products from The Ordinary.

It’s the skincare deep end, and I think it’s safe to say that it’s one of our favorite places to be.

We also talk about Melanie’s recent trip to New England, what we’ve been watching over the last month, and why everyone needs to go to a Ben Rector concert.

Enjoy, y’all!

  1. Sophie, YES. That CEO cream has saved my face. If you need to up the moisture any, using Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate + the CEO cream at night is a WINNER.

  2. Y’all check out They are authorized to carry products from Revision, Elta MD, Obagi, and tons more at great prices. Free shipping, too. I’m not affiliated with them. I just like to save money on skincare products that I use.

  3. I’m 30, pregnant with my 3rd bio child, worn out foster mama, and I JUST wrote a blog post about how I’ve given up trying to look awake or peachy.. and you’ve renewed me. I just ordered my first jade roller and I’m trying to decide what else I can get! I love y’all! I hide in my bathroom and listen every time a new pod cast releases.

  4. Ben Rector is coming to my hometown! You need to understand that my town is less than 25,000 people. So, it is a MIRACLE! I bought tickets the day they went on sale and I am SO excited!!
