Behind every best-selling beauty product, there's a damn good story. Two longtime magazine beauty editors, Jill Dunn and Carlene Higgins, chat about the breakthrough beauty products lining store shelves, and how they came to be. In this bi-weekly segment, we talk to the industry’s most genius founders, and find out how they broke into the biz, with a little beauty idea that blew up into a million-dollar success story. Find out which products beauty editors and insiders really hoard, while hearing the struggles and successes behind the world's buzziest beauty brands. Plus, every other week, we deliver the #TheGlowDown on the best new products worth the spend, and chat with industry insiders on the latest hot topics in hair, makeup and all things skin.

Glow Recipe co-founders and Shark Tank alums Christine Chang and Sarah Lee had no idea their little online store, offering a curated assortment of Korean beauty products, would explode into the multi-million dollar business it is today. Now, Glow Recipe is a Korean skincare company in its own right, selling out at Sephora on the regular. In this episode, Christine Chang tells us the inside story behind Glow Recipe’s massive success and what it’s like to go from L’Oréal marketing interns to beauty moguls – with their sights set on Australian expansion next.   Find out the origin story behind the best-selling Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask (a jar is sold every 3 minutes in over 33 countries around the world) that’s as precious in pastel pink packaging as it is effective at coaxing that covetable glass skin glow. The brand also launched a diffusion line, called Sweet Chef, exclusively at Target stores earlier this year. You’ll hear all the scoop on two follow up products hitting store shelves this month.   Thanks to our show sponsor, Audible.com:Audible is offering Amazon Prime members a special from now all the way up until July 31st.
